New in my Closet – Lacoste Trainers

IMG_2118A year ago you would have not seen me wearing trainers outside of the gym, but it must have been Adiyam’s influence and I have finally given in for this cute Lacoste pair. They have this lovely white leather so don’t feel sporty at all. Can’t wait for summer so I can pair these babies with denim shorts! Find them here

We’re a little late with our petit rendezvous over 2014. Looking back on it now though, it was such a good year for both of us. Today we simply want to thank you for continuing to follow our journey into bloggersphere. We’re looking forward to keeping you entertained this year, the next and hopefully those that will follow after that.

As always, all the best.

Happy Wednesday guys!

As you can see, I’m keeping it cool, calm and collected today in a simple pair of jeans and tee, matched with a faux fur coat and hat. The pop of colour on my nails are brightening up these grey January days and keeping me smiling for now.

Winter Hair

Winter braids the coup adiyam fashion blog london

Don’t mind me while I take it back to the 90s with my super long braids….

Originally I wanted to get my hair braided before heading to Berlin last week but I couldn’t find the time, what with all the festivities and all. Anyways, what do you think? I love, love, love them. They are super easy to maintain which means that I might just keep them in forever :). On another note, I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Mine consisted of a few workouts and a whole load of lounging about. Me and El headed down to the Barbican yesterday which is always fun. We’re both back at work today after two weeks off. No rest for the wicked!

Enjoy your Monday.

Postcard from Berlin

Berlin

Last week I spent my first New Years abroad in Berlin, a city I fall more and more in love with each time I visit. Me and one of my girls thought it would be fun to head there for four days. Both of us had already been back in 2013 so there was no added pressure of things to do / see. We just soaked up the city which looked even more surreal in the snow, just like a Winter Wonderland. I snapped the above shot on my iPhone 6. It’s probably my favourite shot but I’ll give you more snaps from my proper camera sometime next week.

Party Special: Ted Baker’s Sequina

ted_baker_sequina_bagted_baker_sequina_bagI have been given this SEQUINA bag for my birthday earlier this year and since then i have been saving it for a perfect party. And it officially can’t get any more perfect than NYE!

This Ted Baker sequin detail clutch bag can be both chic white and flashy gold, depending which way you brush the sequins. So if you think about it, its an ideal office to party bag!

the coup london blog fashion neon orangeWith Christmas done and dusted, I’m all about the countdown to New Year. I landed in Berlin this morning, ready to welcome to 2015. With that in mind, I opted for fun, neon orange nails; my favourite. You should see what these look like under a UV light…

Hope you had a lovely festive break

What I wore to Office Christmas party

Unlike a lot of my colleagues I do love an office christmas party! It’s a perfect time to mingle with your friends, have a few drinks and perhaps talk to new faces that you’ve never had a chance to speak to. This year we had our Christmas get-together in a pub by Tower Bridge, so perhaps i was a little over dressed, but hey, it’s that time of year when you can get away with it!

My Zara TRF dress with layered skirt is still available online, but now only in navy, which i think still makes it a banger of a dress!

Added to my Wardrobe: Skaters

fashion blog hm skaters shoes  copyMonday morning, meh!!

How are you guys doing? I hope you had a weekend full of goodness. It was a quiet one for me up until yesterday when me and a bunch of friends checked out Winterville in East London – the cool alternative to Central London’s Winter Wonderland. If you’re thinking of heading down there I suggest you do. The rides and mulled wine left me feeling not short of happy. To protect myself from the cold, I layered up and wore these felt skaters which have become somewhat a guilty pleasure of mine. I bought them about six weeks ago, the same day that I bought these python platforms, although Elena wanted them first. Vowing to check in before wearing them to meet up, we both bought a pair. I’ve lived in them ever since or, I’ll admit, since breaking them in. They were painful at first but fine now. I’ll pair them up for you soon :)

Grey Skater Sneakers – H&M (unavailable online I’m afraid. Soz!)

Cat-eye sunglasses have been popping up here, there and everywhere lately! Seems to be everyones favorite shape these days. Since I have a very long oval face cat-eye have always been my go to style for sunnies. I got this cute Kate Spade pair at Bicester village. I am also loving these sunglasses, below, can one have too many?
