Kate Moss x Topshop 2014

Kate Moss is launching a new collection for Topshop, in case you hadn't heard. I remember the original from seven years ago, I'm pretty sure there was an oriental style one shoulder dress that I had my eye on. Having grown up a lot since last time, Kate has described her new collection as "sophisticated". Well, there's an awful lot of feathers and fringing for me to entirely agree. What do you think?

They've definitely chosen the best of the bunch for the campaign shots, as there's not a lot from the rest of the collection that particularly takes my fancy. It's all very 20s flapper meets 70s boho, which is probably what you would expect from a Kate Moss range. There are a few gorgeous pieces, the fringed leather jacket and flapper dress spring to mind, but I don't think I'll be rushing out the door on the 30th April to bag myself anything.

All in all Kate Moss has done really well to encapsulate her signature style into a cool and wearable collection for Topshop - plus she looks amazing in everything. It's definitely better than the Nicole for Missguided range, but nothing has compared to Isabel Marant for H&M yet in the collaboration stakes! 

What do you think of the Kate Moss x Topshop 2014 collection? Let me know!

Yellow Primark Gingham Topshop

TOPSHOP skirt & top & sunglasses
PRIMARK bag
NEW LOOK shoes
RI watch

I've been seeing a lot of pretty yellow on the high street recently and I don't know about you, but I dig it. I have been on the hunt for a new Spring and Summer bag lately as all mine seem to be falling apart at the seems or just generally too big for everyday use - and I'm totally not just trying to justify yet another purchase, promise. I spotted this luminous little thing in Primark for a mere £8 and it fitted all of my S/S bag requirements, so I snapped it straight up. I like it because it has a long strap so I don't actually have to hold it if I don't want to, bonus. Plus it completely alters an otherwise monochrome outfit and transforms it into something far more exciting for Spring. Ta da!!

I paired my fabulous new bag with a Bardot-style gingham crop top, a little black A-line skirt and the shoes I seem to wear in every single outfit post. I 'toughened up' the otherwise pretty cute outfit with my oh-so-cool aviator style sunglasses that I've recently rediscovered and haven't been seen without since. Sorted.

Did ya'll notice I'm wearing my hair in a side parting today? I used to wear it like this all the time but I've been trying to cover up my undercut (I know, so alternative) whilst I grow it out. I'm thinking about doing a 'festival-inspired hair looks' post soon, considering all the cool kids are off to Coachella this weekend. I might do. I might not. We'll see.

Catch you later kids

MYZINE Launch

































On Thursday afternoon last week I caught the train into London to meet my gorgeous friend Allie for dinner in Mayfair, before heading to a swanky launch event for MYZINE UK. We went to a lovely restaurant called 'Burger and Lobster' where Allie and I were brave enough to try lobster for the first time ever (and LOVED it!) The restaurant decor had that stripped back vibe that many London restaurants seem to like, with lots of bare wood and individual hanging light bulbs. I thought it was pretty cool.

Anyway, after stuffing our faces and finishing off the first of several glasses of wine of the evening, we headed to the MYZINE launch. There were lots of yummy canapes and cocktails for us to enjoy, and we got to meet the girls behind the company and learn a bit more about what MYZINE is. Basically, it's a fashion portal where bloggers can create their own shoppable magazines. So you upload your looks and people can shop what you're wearing directly from them. This makes it a very functional platform, while still looking fantastic visually too! 

I think the concept of this new platform is really interesting, and I'm excited to get involved. Be sure to check out their website to find out how you can join in the fun!

Comfort Zones




MISS SELFRIDGE dress
GEORGE at ASDA gilet
NEW LOOK shoes & cuff
PRIMARK bag
TOPSHOP necklace  

I've recently come to the realisation that I need to incorporate more skirts and dresses into my wardrobe. I'm the kind of girl who would choose trousers (or a jumpsuit) over a dress any day - whether I'm going to uni, going shopping, on a date night, or a night out. Dresses just haven't really been doing it for me anymore!

But, as Spring and Summer are just around the corner, I've decided to embrace them again! Starting with this T shirt style dress from Miss Selfridge. I really love the pattern on it, and the casual shape means it can be rocked both with heels and a clutch for evening or an oversized denim jacket and ankle boots for day time. 

Next on my list is a tropical palm tree print skirt! This kind of print seems to be everywhere at the moment so it's only a matter of time before it seeps into my wardrobe...

Will you be breaking out of any of your comfort zones this S/S?

Brighton Day Trip!































There's something so lovely and nostalgic about Brighton, isn't there? The pier, the deck chairs, the ice creams, the happy people. I just love it. Yesterday I took one of my best friends to the lovely seaside town for the day as a Birthday treat. The weather was absolutely beautiful, I definitely regretted wearing boots and a big denim jacket! We had a relaxed lunch in Bill's and did some damage in MAC and Lush before heading down to the seaside to have a go on the wheel and wander around the pier. Overall, a really lovely day!

I always love visiting Brighton, and every time I go there I fall more in love with the place. It's definitely somewhere that I can see myself living in the future!  

Have you guys ever been? I'd love to know your favourite places to go and things to do for my next trip!

Fail Safe Style




TOPSHOP 'Leigh' jeans
RIVER ISLAND leather jacket
ZARA shirt & heels
PRIMARK necklace
WHISTLES clutch

We all have those days. The days when we want to look like we've made an effort, but we also don't want to look like we've tried too hard. The days when we want to look professional but we also want to be comfortable. You know, most days.

Basically this outfit is my 'fail safe' look. Black skinny jeans, a crisp white shirt, a comfy pair of heels, and a statement jacket or coat. I feel completely confident in this combination because it's understated but oh so chic at the same time. By simply adding the pink leather jacket to the otherwise monochrome outfit it makes it so much more interesting and bright, but with minimal effort! 

Let me know what your 'fail safe' outfits are!

Boy Meets Girl







NEW LOOK jeans*
TOPSHOP jacket
PRIMARK top
DOROTHY PERKINS shoes (very old)

BEHOLD! The most beautifully girly - perfect for weddings - a little over the top - but seriously wow - shoes. 

I bought these a few years ago to wear to a couple of weddings and I recently rediscovered them hiding away at my parents' house. I decided to bring them home with me because I thought they would be the perfect thing to pair with my over-sized boyfriend jeans and a leather jacket (of course), to add a touch of femininity to an otherwise pretty masculine outfit. I love the contrast!

I'd been looking for a pair of jeans like these for absolutely ages, but when you're so used to wearing skinny jeans like I am, it feels a bit unnatural to don a pair that are looser fitting and less structured. I'm happy with this pair though, and I now officially own a pair of jeans that aren't black!

Hope you all have a great week!
