Geneva Bound

Geneva BoundFinally, this weekend has arrived! We (me and my siblings) booked our trip back in January. A good family friend of ours is getting married so we’ve decided to make a flying visit. When travelling I enjoy keeping things light, hence the sexy/casual double denim look above which is what I’m currently wearing. With 28 degrees heat waiting for us as soon as we land, the shorts are a must as are the Toms. I’ll try grab some snaps for you over the weekend. You have a good one too!

Outfit – Too Cool for School

IMG_0861The other day, for an afternoon amble with El in Hampstead, I swapped my staple look of a skirt and pumps for a pair of worn converse and tattered, although new pair of skinnies. Wearing a knit that was two sizes up helped add to that extra slouchy look. Dress down days – gotta love ’em. They get two thumbs up from me.IMG_0856

We took a stroll, did a little bit of shopping and then had a sensible afternoon coffee. In one of the shops (Whistles I think), I saw this gorgeous necklace with an inscription that caught my eye…

How quaint; how cute.

Although I can’t exactly say the same for my chucks… oops! Err, I think I need to invest in a new pair sometime soon.

I’ve never been one for buying the same thing in multiple colours but I’ll admit to owning these sweatshirts in all three of the colours above. I just love the way they cling to your body in all the right places and hang on all the others. They are totally perfect for tucking them into a cute pencil skirt. I do prefer leaving them loose however, and creating ethereal silhouettes as I’m moving to and fro. I’ve added to some additional items here to show you how I would pair them. You would have already seen the monochrome pairing here, but with a different skirt. You may see another pairing soon…! Well done Topshop, you’ve outdone yourself. These tops get not one, but two ticks from me.

Tops available here: pinkmonochrome and, my personal favourite, orange 

Additional items available here: super ripped jeans, leather biker mini, monochrome gingham tube, Nikey’sgecko leather court shoes, clear clutch bag

I’m taking these denim shorts out for one more outing before September comes! Its so good to get your pins out in the sun, if only this mini tan would last a little longer!

I like wearing formal shirts when baring legs, that way I feel less beach babe and more city chic.

I am wearing (all old items): Oasis white shirt; Calzedonia denim shorts; Zara mini messenger leopard bag; Zara leopard kitten heels; H&M gold feather earrings and a gold cuff.

Double Denim

We thought it would be fun to put a spin on an old classic and take some team photos. Denim shirt and jeans, different shapes and sizes, heels and trainers. Here’s how we each took the basics and emulated different looks.

My jeans here have a funny little story. I bought them when I was twelve years old. They were low rise flares: so hot back in 1999! Ten years later I had them tailored to have a straight leg fit. Now, six years later, I am itching to have them made into skinnies! 20130813-141917.jpgIMG_7830

Happy Monday!!

Floral prints are one of those rare prints that transcends all four seasons. We often see winter florals appear in shades of burgandy, grey, purple and so forth during the A/W season. Likewise brighter, more vibrant floral designs pop up during and throughout the S/S season. This dress is a funny one though. I bought it at Christmas but don’t you think however that it’s better suited to the S/S season? I’m loving the way it looks in the sun!

Denim Crop Jacket Floral Dress And, bonus, it’s pretty easy to dress up and down too! For a more casual look I have previously worn this dress with a pair of classic brown brogues and cute ankles socks. Today however, I’m emulating a feminine and more youthful look by sporting nude heels and a casual denim crop jacket.

The dress’s lightweight material means that I’m going to have to be a tad conscious of the wind blowing. We don’t want a boo-boo now, do we?!

Outfit Inspiration – All White

As a child I remember that by May the sun would always be shining and eating ice – cream, watermelon and the various edible treats that we attribute to the summer season were daily treats. Although the thick of summer is yet to come, if you’re anything like me you’d have started thinking about your summer wardrobe. If there’s one colour essential to your summer wardrobe this year it’ll be white. Here’s a little simple but cute outfit inspiration for those summer days that’ll hopefully be arriving soon…

No not Gray, that was so last season! I’m talking colour pop denim. Summer’s the only time of year that you can really get away with wearing bright and bold colours, with no one assuming you’re a little ‘colourful’ in more ways than one! A few weeks back we brought you colour pop watches, now we’re bringing you colour pop denim. And I’m loving this summer collection by Ralph Lauren! Go on, try something new today. I dare you!

A couple of years ago everyone, including myself, was sporting a pair of feather earrings. As of late I haven’t seen too many people wearing them, but once again they are all over the shops. What I like about feather earrings is that they are quite quirky yet casual, so they can be worn to spruce up most daywear outfits. They also look uber cute on the beach. Next time you hit the high street, pick up a pair to help compliment your summer wardrobe. They are everywhere!
