Day Dreaming in Holland Park

 A few snaps outside my new home in Holland Park.... haha I blooming wish! On Sunday I decided to take a stroll through Holland Park my ultimate favourite place to day dream in the whole of London. The houses are absolutely beautiful, each street is perfect not an over grown bush in sight ( didn't sound so bad in my head haha.) It might sound odd to some but whenever I feel a bit lost in life or uninspired I like to walk round Holland Park to remind myself to keep working hard, the things you truly want don't come easily it is my way of knuckling down. Now I don't live in the clouds too much me owning a £10 million property is very unlikely ( I do buy a lottery ticket just incase) but I do hope to one day own something equally as pretty.

For the walk I only thought it was appropriate to wear the most Chelsea-esq item I own being my Topshop fedora and I will let you into a secret my Kenzo inspired jumper is from the mens section in Zara!! Sometimes it pays being dragged around the mens section! I added a bit of glam with my birthday shoes from last year which I utterly adore but my god are they uncomfortable it is as if the strap has teeth, they tear your feet to pieces. They look pretty though right? I'd sacrifice a toe or two for them haha!

How do you keep yourself inspired? Where is your favourite place in London?

Swingin'


The first weekend of Spring and it was another sunny one in London, I am feeling truly spoilt! What with this lovely weather I am trying to make a more conscious effort to wear some colour ( see this post for my first attempt) and as you may of notice when it comes to colour I seem to have the motto 'go hard or go home' haha. Another bright piece from me today, editing these pictures was extremely hard as the jumper kept going fluorescent but the first photo is the true colour of the sweater. Besides black I would say orange is up there as one of my favourite colours, black & orange together is perfection in my book, so this boxy semi cropped jumper in Topshop sucked me in instantly! I paired it with a skirt I remember last year searching high and low for, it was going to be the skirt to transform my life ( you know where I'm going with this) and I have worn it a pitiful twice in its whole life time. The pair together make me feel very 60's so I only thought it was appropriate to make a bit of effort with my hair and do a semi beehive which I massively failed but baby steps people!

Anyone else got this skirt? What do you wear it with?

Hoppin' into Spring


Yep the title is correct on Saturday I hopped and bounded into the arms of spring like it was a long lost friend. Off went my coat ( maybe a little premature), on went the sunglasses and off to sunny London I went.

Now this scarf is the marmite item of my wardrobe, it got mixed reviews from my work colleagues when I bought it spur of the moment one lunch time but for me it was love at first sight. Coming from a girl who rarely wears anything but black I have thrown myself in the deep end with neons here, I never do do things by halves! The print made me instantly think of Louis Vuitton's leopard style scarves and I thought it is an easy way to jazz up sometimes boring all black outfits. I always find it funny how a certain item of clothing can just give you a vision, as soon as I saw this scarf I thought of being in Rome on a spring day with the sun out but a cold breeze, Rayban aviators on, a nude lip and parka coat. Too much of a daydreamer? Most probably!

Did you get to enjoy the sunshine? What are your honest thoughts on this scarf? Something you would wear or too bright?

China Town 2014




Happy New Year!! A bit late I know, and I know I have said it many a time but I feel I am back, a new year, new start, new ideas etc. So Q the awkward poses, this is the first blog post of 2014 with hopefully many more to follow!

I have very little to report from my break away from the blog which highlights just how plain a life I lead! Why is it that men just do not get the importance of a hat with an outfit? Every time I wear this hat I get the usual ‘why are you wearing a summer hat?’ ‘ you look like a detective’ and a personal favourite ‘what is the point in wearing it?’ when will men learn it is just fashion darling haha. Anyone else get these ridiculous questions?

One bit of exciting news though ladies is that Topshop have finally started making their Leigh jeans the same as they did a couple of years ago there is plenty of stretch in them again I managed to squeeze my large buns in a 26!! In the excitement of it all I snapped up 3 pairs of them, excessive? A little.

Is there anything you wish to see more of on my blog? Do you enjoy when I do random make up posts or would you rather I just stuck with outfit posts? I'd be very interested in your opinion J

P.s confession time I know the second outfit picture is blurry and shouldn't really be on my blog but I have kept it as it is the first time my legs  don’t look massive haha, vain? A little.  Denial? 100%.

OOTW- Crisp Autumn

Hi Dolls,


Boy was I glad to see this weekend, I feel like this week has to of been one of the longest of my life! I passed my second Insurance exam on Tuesday which I was over the moon about, I feel like such a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I can finally relax and enjoy my evenings again! How you uni folk do it is beyond me, but it is no nice to feel you have achieved something :)

Autumn feels like such a treat this year as it is lasting ages, last year all I remember is winter and feel frozen constantly. Everything looks prettier in Autumn, nothing is better than going for a walk, with a hot coffee ( pumpkin spice latte to be exact), wrapped up and feeling the cold breeze against your cheeks *sigh* my perfect Sunday. Bit of a basic outfit for the day before doing errands, I am currently living in my Topshop All Mine boots which you can see here, I love that they give me some extra height but are so comfy and easy to walk in. I have also blown the dust off my faux leather trousers, however I do squeak in them sometimes ( attractive I know) but they are such a good heat insulator they keep you extra warm on colder days haha.

Hows your weekend been? Anyone else excited for Christmas already like me?
