Trend check: leather trousers, gingham, baker boy hats, knotted shoes. You name it and I’ve (subconsciously) put it on this month’s style board.
I can’t stop dreaming of going shopping. Like actual, feel the fabric and try stuff on shopping. Maybe it’s the endless hours I’ve spent at my laptop reading strategy textbooks that have me fantasising of real-life interactions and a chance to wander around shops guilt-free. As a consolation, my revision breaks consist of online shopping or more specifically, scrolling the pages of ASOS in search of my latest fashion obsession: a suede biker jacket.
A new clothing brand on the scene always gets me excited, especially when I get the opportunity to find out more at a Christmas themed launch (complete with mulled wine and cupcakes, may I add). Joanie Clothing were the hosts of the evening and I was invited along to find out more about their ultra feminine and playful brand that puts a vintage twist on the modern wardrobe. (more…)
I feel like every time I leave my house I’m in a pair of trainers. Whilst comfort is the overriding reason why trainers never leave my feet, the pairs I’ve got are also really easy to style and well suited to my uni-gym-home-repeat lifestyle. That was until I received this curveball pair from WODEN… zebra print.
September is a great month for shopping. I’ve moved into a new house (new decor required), student loans are in (new purchases are actually possible) and I’m kicking off my third year as a fashion student (new clothes definitely needed). So, in true ‘I have one day in uni this week’ style; I have spent my last few days checking the new in pages of my favourite stores and hunting out things that I’ve convinced myself I need for a new year.
I absolutely love minimal jewellery and a scroll through Instagram fills me with ideas for simple yet elegant earrings, rings and beyond. I love low-maintenance jewels that I can either throw on with any outfit or, in the case of earrings, keep wearing without adjustment for weeks. I picked up a couple of new pieces recently from two of my favourite fashion stores, which just so happen to stock limited yet perfectly designed jewellery collections.
The September issues are out and the shops are slowly filtering in their autumn and winter stock. The sight of a rogue winter coat rack on the shop floor or a mannequin styled with beanies and scarves always gets people fretting at thought of dressing for cold and rainy days when we’re still enjoying the August sunshine. Reality is, if you want to get ahead of the AW16 wardrobe game then it’s time to start shopping, and who’s complaining at that? Here’s my top five trends for you to buy into NOW.
It might just be another off-the-shoulder look but this t-shirt has already seen me through many summer outfits over the last few weeks.
There’s been a couple of new additions to my wardrobe in the last week including a pair of embroidered jeans that I picked up at the end of this season’s sales and a pair of controversial black trainers, which I was kindly gifted after a recent event. Both of which are from brands that I don’t typically shop with and they push me a little out of my fashion comfort zone.
