Blue stripes

7/22/2014

I've had this shirt for ages now but haven't blogged it before. It really is one of my favourites but I tend to wear it very casually on a hot day or just around the house when I get home from work. I guess because I wear it so often and simply I missed just how fabulous it really is! Today I've worn it with some simple white cropped trousers and Birkenstock-style sandals for a slightly smarter summer look. What do you think?

Grey day

7/19/2014

We have been having some amazing weather here in the UK but the last couple of days has been thundery and very, very, very muggy. This makes for great lighting but very sticky bloggers so please excuse my humidity-hair. Today's look is kept neutral like some more recent looks with this awesome next jacket from Next; I just love the detail on the lapel (only on one side) and prefer wearing the other lapel folded in. What do you guys think about wearing it this way? It's a bit sad to be back from holiday and Paris but with the weather as lovely as this, I can't complain!

Sacre Coeur

7/16/2014

My second look that I'll be posting from Paris. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't fantastic on my trip so this will be my second and final look. This was a look I wore on the evening of Bastille Day, visiting the Sacre Coeur for dinner and a view of the fireworks. It was a very warm evening so this floaty check skirt from Zara was perfect with this structured crop. For walking home I paired it with a boyfriend fit black blazer which also worked really well. So sad to be back from Paris but some exciting new things happening in my life I'll be sharing with you guys soon.

When in Paris

7/13/2014

If you follow me on Instagram you will know that I've spent the last few days in Paris for my birthday. Unfortunately, the weather has not been too great but yesterday we managed to get some sunshine whilst visiting the city to get some photos done. The setting for them, some may recognise, is the Grand Palais just off the Champs Elysées. I'm keeping it tourist-ee simple in all black and croc slip-ons. I hope everyone is having a good summer! I know I am :)

Nautical Blue

7/01/2014

As we enter July it really is starting to feel like summer is in full swing. With the sunny days and warm temperatures I sometimes find it difficult to wear different combinations, but this light jacket is just perfect for this season! I've kept the layers loose for a light and easy feel with some simple sandals. What do you guy think?

Sharp Lines

6/29/2014


Today I'm wearing my favourite sale buy of the season, this Zara top with faux leather panelling is a simple must have! I've paired with more faux leather for a bit of an 'Alexander Wang' look. I'm also totally in love with these Birkenstock-style slippons from Topshop, so comfortable and perfect for the hot weather. I hope you like this easy breezy look!

Norway - Time by the lake

5/30/2014


I have been very lucky to have spent the last week holidaying in Lillehammer in Norway. My other half is Norwegian so these trips can be frequent but every time I'm dazzled by the beauty of this wonderful country. The last time that I was here everything was white with snow and so unbearably cold that you could not be outside for very long, however, on this occasion, it has been beautifully hot and the snow has almost entirely melted away on the mountain tops. On the second full day we took a short hike to this lovely lake on one of the mountains. It was still a little chilly for swimming but perfect for lounging around and toasting marshmallows on a camp-fire. A crisp white shirt, ripped jeans and white Superga trainers  were the perfect look for this casual trip.
