A pair of fresh, all white Nike Air Max 90s. My 2015 summer staple.
I have a good few months before I’ll lapping up the sun hopefully in one of these Triangl bikini’s. I love the sexy yet sporty balance they encapsulate. Hurry up summer; I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one waiting for you with open arms.
Lately I’ve been feeling uninspired by what I am seeing on the high street. I went shopping last Monday and nothing, literally nothing, jumped out at me. Annoyingly! I’ve bought bodysuit number one though, the one with the thin straps which looks a little saucy on (iPhone snap below). I’m looking forward to dressing this up with either a skirt and heels or some denim for a casual look :)
This time last year I have debuted my lovely Valentino dress here. I remember this day clearly, prancing around in Spring sun. A year later I am still in love with it as much as when I first tried it on. It’s a shame I do not have enough fancy occasions to wear it to!
I have however made the most of these blue sandals from Dune. I saw that they extended Hydro line with iridescent pink and gold versions… Very tempting!
Looks like we are on a steam train heading for Spring! Yay, finally! I cannot wait for the day that I can vacuum pack away all my coats and knits. Spring is a great time to add a few new items to your closet, updating it for the next season. ASOS is my ultimate favourite online store, because they make whole experience smooth and safe. I am definitely guilty of browsing their site a little bit every few days. Here is what you will find in my ‘saved items’…I might just press the order button…
Time; what a concept. It has always amazed me how younger generations spend their days wishing away their adolescence while adults try to hold on to it with the same conviction. Thinking about it, it’s quite bizarre, no?
For me, timepieces are important and with the variety available on the market, nowadays they can be as beautiful as they are practical. My jewellery stand is adorned with roughly ten watches. You may say that that’s not a lot you say but for a person that gets a certain level of satisfaction from not being a hoarder, we can say that a score is a fair few.
About 2 weeks ago, we at The Coup were approached by Invaluable, the World’s largest online auction place. They wanted to know the story behind our favourite timepieces and, likewise, if they held any sentimental value? This got me thinking.
I like all my watches but choosing my favourite was not as easy as I expected it to be. I can settle on two that I like and, although they couldn’t be further afield in terms of style, they do have one thing in common. Strangely enough, both were purchased abroad. Perhaps it’s the fact that they transport me to that happy, zen-like mood you typically feel whilst holidaying; I don’t know.
The first one is my classic Michael Kors ; bought in Germany exactly two years ago to the month. I doubt any of you will be surprised that this watch has made it into my favourite two. I was once told that there are 3 things a woman should own. I won’t disclose what all three items were but a classic MK watch did top the list. It makes a statement whilst keeping it classy to say the least.
A tad more peculiar in style, however, is my favourite; my SKIN Swatch watch. This was also purchased abroad; in Geneva, Switzerland, to be exact. I imagine that this choice will strike you, it took me by surprise too, but in all honesty, this is the one that I opt to wear almost everyday. Perhaps it’s its understated delicacy that does it for me. Or maybe, it’s the fact its comfort, alongside its character and quirkiness, ticks the right boxes. Who knows but then again who cares? I like it and that’s all that matters right? Right.
See here for watches available at Invaluable.
Some extra pics from Friday’s sneaker shot as promised. True to the name of this post I kept it casual, threw on a plain long sleeve tee and a light bomber coat paired with boyfriend jeans. SNUG! On another note, I hope you guys are having a great weekend. So far mine has been pretty cosy. I gym’d it on Friday night and again yesterday, which was an absolute killer! Me and El had a 2 hour session with our personal trainer. It was so hard but so, so good! I’m paying for it now though…
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and Happy International Women’s Day to each and every single one of you ladies out there :)
The best thing about March – spring! Like clockwork, I have already found myself wearing lighter colours. Say hello to my newest pair of Nike Air Max Ones, gifted to me by a good friend last Christmas. Nothing quite beats colourful footwear when it comes to adding a spring to your step.
I’ll show you the rest of my outfit next week. For now, have an awesome weekend!
Have a great day beauts, and enjoy your weekend :)
Finery is closing the gap between high street and designer.
New boutique opened in London on 5th of February offers shoppers modern and sophisticated styling. Finally cutting edge design doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Finery has launched with 127 pieces that will make you fall in love with dressing again.
Their main collection might be a little too simplistic for me but the shoes and accessories are stunning! Just look at the stunning metails and intricate detail. Love!
The braids are officially gone! Well, they actually went a little while ago. I do enjoy the versatility of adding extensions and trying out new looks every so often but I’m considering keeping it natural for a little while. I have a lot of layers in my hair so curls hold and last for ages. Say hello to classy, chic Adiyam. For now, she’s here to stay…
This photo seems so alien to me. Lately I’ve been wearing nothing but black (a hue that I am currently wearing, as I’m sitting here typing away; shock!) Likewise, although this photo was only taken last January, I feel as though it was a lifetime ago. I’ve been hibernating this winter and really feeling the winter blues. Hopefully the weather over the past few days is an indication of winter (finally) drawing to a close. Roll on spring, and a summer filled with lots of colour.
It’s been six whole weeks since I last blogged – how absurd! I think it’s time I checked in with you guys…
So what has 2015 brought so far? A new job! I’m not too sure if I mentioned this to you earlier but in January I was due to start a new teaching role. It’s been hectic but all good so no complaints!
Something else that’s new is my fitness regime. Taking a page out of El’s book, I started working out with her trainer and since have seen some real results. My intention isn’t to lose weight; instead, I want to tone up and keep my curves. I like mixing it up and do 4 sessions a week which include a bit of Hot Yoga, running and a whole lot of weight lifting. I’m currently in love with H&M’s sportswear selection. Here’s some pieces I’ve picked out. In the gym, I like keeping things simple, and sport a lot of grey and blacks. Shocking for a colour fanatic like me right?

Speaking of coats, here is what I wore the other weekend. Ah how i love my rabbit fur coat! You first saw it here and now its back in a more casual look. Paired with my new Lacoste trainers it’s perfect for running errands on a frosty Sat morning.
