Casual Sundays

The coup fashion lifestyle blog outfit casual wiwt inspiration_edited-2IMG_7258

Happy Sunday!

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 :)

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.

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!

Outfit – Flowers and Feathers

It feels so good to be back and blogging. Last couple of months have proven to be very busy, but I am happy that I can finally make time for blog, which i love!

topshop_feather_blouse_outfit

So this is what I wore to the office the other day. I absolutely adore this Topshop blouse in flower and feather print. Colours are very  autumnal which makes dressing it, for a colour-phobe like me, quite easy. I paired it with my shaggy H&M waistcoat, Topshop Moto jeans and over the knee boots.

So November came and went in the blink of an eye, literally. I don’t really know where the month went but it was a good one at that. I’ve booked a trip to Berlin over New Years, exciting! Berlin has always been a favourite city of mine so spending NYE there will be pretty epic although I’m going to have to practice wearing practical, warm clothing more similarly to what I’m wearing today. Typically I would have paired this cute jumper dress with some chunky boots but its.just.too.cold! December’s has always been a month when comfort comes first so the heels may be on hold for a while.

Hope you have a great weekend beauts!

Happy Monday!!

A fitted top, structured skirt and minimalistic heels – sometimes you’ve just got to keep it classic and clean. The drop in the temperature has encouraged me to play with texture instead of colour. So today, I’m keeping it simple with a little black number. Couldn’t resist a hint of colour though, hence the nails. Bisous beauts, have a great day!

TBT – December ’13

Morning team. Happy Thursday!

The irony of these preppy schoolgirl photos is that… I have finally finished my studies!! I’ve spent the past two years juggling a lot of important things and my masters was one of them. For me, Summer was a time to knuckle down. Last Monday, however, marked my emancipation and since I have been spending my time enjoying being a normal twenty-six year old. And it feels good! Now, I’m looking forward to indulging in all of my hobbies, with Team Coup number one on my list.Adiyam_signature_the_coup

TBT – September ’13

IMG_1513IMG_1506IMG_1557 1IMG_1464It’s crazy to think that our blog, The Coup, has been up and running for two years. I remember the very first day that El told me about her idea: I asked if she wouldn’t mind me getting involved. Just how fast time flies by really is a wonder, especially as you get older. Bar being able to pin your ideas, share them with others and receiving warming emails, the best thing about running a blog has to be the nostalgic feeling one gets as you trawl through your history. I took these photos last September and have tons from this shoot that I hadn’t shared with you. Here are a few extra shots that I like. And ooh that jacket is still one of my favourites!

Feel free to see the full post here for details of what I was wearing

Outfit: Leopard Print Trousers

I love a great animal print and these leopard trousers from ZARA are exactly what I craved for this summer. I really like the fact that the pattern is a touch darker on the back – working wonders on my behind! But it seems that all trousers cut differently making the gradients appear different on each pair. I have decided to offset the straight trouser cut with black peplum top from ASOS, Bershka heels (old) and a gold ring from NEXT.

Outfit: Pink Panther

Pretty in pink? No, i’m a panther in pink!

There comes a time in every mans life when he’s unwillingly forced to change his style and keep up with the trends. Pressure from the lady friend to try new things (usually along the lines of “babe, Harry is soo stylish, you should get some tips from him” or she takes matters into her own hands and starts buying you clothes) are the triggers to this ‘male style’ crisis.IMG_6052Crisis?! What crisis? Just put on a pink blazer and strut down the high street smooth as a panther would. Here i am in a Zara slim fit blazer, complimented with a plain white stretchy shirt from Zara, along with pair of skinny jeans from River Island.
IMG_60531IMG_60641IMG_6076IMG_6085IMG_60901I’m wearing a pair of combination desert shoes courtesy of Zara in a black suede and leather look. They are style meets comfort and thats a combination that agrees with my feet.

Ctrl, over & OUT!

 

I’m wearing;

Combination desert shoe – Zara

Skinny jeans – River Island

Pink Blazer – Zara

Stretch white shirt – Zara 

Outfit: Dressed-up Leggings

This is my look from last Saturday afternoon. Featuring my ultimate favourite coat from River Island. Love it so much that one day I will clone it in every colour possible.
