Stuck Between Seasons... ☀️πŸƒ☁️




Has anybody else noticed that the shops are full of Autumn clothes right now?! I am such a sucker for knitwear and I've been waiting all week to wear this jumper... because I'm an idiot I picked the warmest day of the week though. It's sometimes so difficult to decide what to wear in London, one minute it is overcast and chilly, then sunny and hot... next thing you know it's pouring with rain. Styled here with black ankle boots, a leather skirt & Balenciaga Blanket Bag.

My First Ever Weekly Vlog... eek! πŸŽ₯










SHARE:

The best t-shirt... ft. my kitchen floor 🐻


New Favourite Tee :  Mike The Bear!  
I can't even remember actually how I came across this brand but their designs are amazing. We've seen the statement tee a lot this year and I hate to admit that I'm getting a little bored of slogans but what is better than an image of a bear wearing a Gucci tshirt?! I styled this with a white leather skirt from a vintage store & black ankle boots.

The reincarnation of the Hoodie... 
A hoodie was always just something I would wear around the house on a lazy Sunday, however 2017 has seen the hoodie bought back as a statement piece of the 'street style luxe' trend. I bought my one from Γͺtre cΓ©cile & it is super cosy! Wear oversized with all black to create emphasis on the bold colours!

I'd rather be drinking coffee on my unicorn than whatever this Wednesday business is 🐎


 The statement culottes... or in my case the statement trouser .
I didn't even realise these were meant to be cropped until I looked online but I actually really like the way they fit! Although a little more bold than I'd usually go for the stripes help to make my legs look that little bit longer and you can dress these up or down. I chose to pair with Alexander Mcqueen platform trainers for extra height and a white tee.

The Hermès Neckerchief 🌻


Bringing back the neckerchief... I bought this HermΓ¨s twilly last year to style a Kelly bag, it has so many purposes! This came in cheaper than the Dior ones which are also lovely but around £150
. HermΓ¨s retail at around £115 + .  I kept this look classic with my Gucci pearl loafers and added a modern twist with my Sandro black leather jacket.

The Polka Dot Mesh Dress ...Will You Dare to Bare? πŸ‘½





I can't quite decide if working 3 minutes from Zara on Regent Street is a blessing or a curse, sometimes I feel like I've spent half of lunchtimes of my working life browsing in there... ok that is an exaggeration, but it is definitely my go to shop for every day items. I saw this mesh dress last week and I couldn't quite work out how on earth you're meant to wear it... it is completely see through so I popped it back on the shelf and kind of forgot about it. However, I then saw it again a few days later and had a brain wave...  I took it home and popped it over the top of a slip dress and I absolutely love how this turned out! Add a leather jacket and some black boots to complete the look.

Glitzbox - Jewellery Subscription ✨ Launch & The Workbench London Workshop

#GLITZBOX ... think netflix, but for premium jewellery discovery.


I honestly love this concept and I was so happy to be invited to the Glitzbox pop up earlier this week for a ring making workshop with The Workbench London girls!




Glitzbox isn't really something I'd heard of before but when the founder, Tamsin contacted me I was instantly intrigued, jewellery is something that I cannot live without and what better than being able to try out 3 pieces each month and then either buy them or return them. As you all know life during the week can be a little hectic, there is nothing I enjoy more than browsing markets at the weekend for special handmade rings but I don't always have the time. Glitzbox gives independant and emerging designers a chance to showcase their designs all from the comfort of your own home when a little box appears in the post each month.





Glitzbox has a pop-up running until the 13th August 2017 in a unit at Old Street Station. This gives you the opportunity to view the beautiful jewellery, buy at a discounted rate or start your subscriptionIt's impossible to miss when you come through the ticket barriers so pop down to have a look as you've only got a little bit of time left! 




On Wednesday I was lucky enough to see the pop up for myself along with other bloggers and influencers and Katie and Kirstie from The Workbench London who run ring making events all over the city let us all take part in one of their amazing workshops! We all designed and made our own rings with the help from the super talented girls and I had such a lovely time! I cannot wait to get my ring back and see how it turns out! 





Tamsin has made the pop up look so brilliant, unfortunately my camera was broken so all of the photos in this post are actually credit to her or from the Glitzbox instagram, (don't worry I have a new camera now..ready for vlogging!) After we finished making the rings we had the opportunity to look at all of the jewellery and create a little list of our favourite items... I loved them all! I cannot thank Tamsin enough for my invite.

Life Update! πŸ’–


Change... the most daunting thing in my life and wow, there has been a lot of that lately! For a start I've totally changed my blog layout and I love it! I feel like since I started blogging there have been so many things that have popped up in my life causing the internet to take a back seat and I've sometimes lost sight of the very reason I started this blog in the first place... as a creative output in a busy city life that can sometimes feel like a cyclone. My original template was quite sterile and simple, I wanted something a little more user friendly, colourful and fun and I'm really happy with what I've achieved!

Ask any of my friends and they'll tell you that I'm brutally honest and upfront about most things. When it comes to sharing my personal life for everyone and anyone to see on my blog however I'm not sure that's something that I ever want to do or something that I feel is entirely appropriate. I'm not going to go into the last few months but sorry for the silent phase! I'm so excited now for the next chapter as there are so many fun things coming up...

(Pinterest)

Some really exciting new opportunities have popped into my life and hopefully some that I can share with you on here, I've decided I'm finally going to take the plunge and start YouTube. I said you'd never catch me speaking to a camera a little while ago but I feel like if I never give it a go I'll never know and next month is super busy so a perfect opportunity to film lots of content. I travel to see some of my favourite people in Copenhagen at the start of September and then I'm off to New York. I will be filming both trips and maybe there will be a random weekly vlog before then depending on how I settle into the editing process as I honestly have no idea how much time this will take etc!

I feel like my Instagram has always been a bit of a mash up and I lost sight of my own personal style at one point, I was so caught up in buying designer and fitting in with certain 'trends' that I lost some of the quirks in my style. This blog was always about showing that you can mix highstreet, vintage and designer and come up with something that is totally different... money is by no means the answer and its never fun to cross someone in the street who is wearing the exact same outfit as you! For those of you who follow me for luxury don't worry I am not totally cutting this content out, I'm just going back to what I'm all about and that is having a balance! I've bought some really great pieces recently and I can't wait to share these with you, weekly outfit posts are coming back!

Thank you so much for all bearing with me recently and I cannot wait to recommence my blogging journey . . .
