Three ways to wear...With Urban Outfitters EU

I’ll be styling three outfits in collaboration with Urban Outfitters, that you can wear to a meeting, a cinema date or running around the city exploring art galleries. I tend to go with comfort with everything I wear; layering, loose and baggy styling is my aesthetic. 

---------------------------------------------------------------

OUTFIT 1
Whether it’s a quick lunch or coffee catch-up, this is an outfit I would wear to all kinds of meetings. I’ve styled the shirt loose over jeans to create a relaxed and casual feel and toughened it up with boots




---------------------------------------------------

OUTFIT 2
For this outfit I’ve mixed feminine pieces with a sports luxe vibe – perfect for when you’re out exploring. I’ve kept the colour palette very neutral, layering over the shirt with a grey trench coat that adds a subtle contrast. Trainers and a backpack are must have accessories for when you’re on the go, too.





-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Outfit 3
For a cinema date, baggy items are my go-to staples – you’re going to be sitting down for two hours so you need to wear something comfortable. I’ve worn the shirt tucked into the jeans as I’m a big fan of anything high waisted, and finished the ensemble with a lightweight trench to make the outfit less heavy.

Pay day sneaker picks

Payday has crept up on us again and this time I wanted to pick out some trainers that have been catching my eye for the last month. I've been wearing my Adidas Superstars everyday and my love for trainers have grown. They are my go to's and are definitely worth an investment.

Unboxing the #TBPGIFTBOX

Petite girl leather

------------------------------------

I've always wanted a pair of leather pants but every pair I've tried on in the past just didn't fit right or suit my legs. I saw these on Missguided and fell in love. They were simple and faux. I decided to order them and I have finally found a pair that fits well. Still not 100% as I don't have a butt to fill them out properly but they will do for now. 

Mixing faux leather and heavy knits together is such a great combo so I had to do it for this outfit of course. Paired my pointy flats with it too from Mango which are just too beautiful to put into words.

Quick 3 tips for transitioning into Spring.

------------------------------------

Trying to transition into lighter colours for spring is pretty damn difficult for me. Like I said in a previous post, I'm trying to do so one by one piece and getting comfortable first before I dive straight into the deep end. 

A perfect piece to start off with is a lighter coat - a trench! Switch from a heavier winter coat into a more lighter and still basic coat. It's great for layering over t shirts, turtle necks and shirts without packing in the heat too much. If you're still a bit chilly, then I suggest a scarf to add some extra comfort. 

Next is the lighter shade of grey. You guys know I love my darker colours so why not just adjust the shade just by a little? I'm still wearing grey, just a bit more friendlier with the spring palette.  Here I've mixed 2 different lighter shades of grey together and it creates such a beautiful balance.

Finished off with a light pair of jeans (knee rips optional) and my favourite pair of white trainers currently; the Adidas Superstars.

Green vibes

----------------------------------------------

I forgot to upload this the other day! Was feeling all the loose and oversized clothing and it was a bit of a gloomy day. Decided to pair my jumper with a perfect matching fedora that I got ages ago from Reiss. I love mixing odd length pieces together with contrasting colours. It instantly uplifts an outfit if you do it right and pick the right pieces. 

Ofcourse my Superstars made the cut too, along with my current favourite bag - my JCOS box bag.

So I got all ready to pop over to the bank for a meeting which turned out to be pointless. Don't you just hate it when something like that happens? At least I looked good though right?! (LOL) Just kidding. 

I went for something super casual today, my favourite camel coat, scuba sweatshirt (mentioned in my Feb haul here), ripped skinnies and my Adidas Superstar. Super easy, chic and comfortable!

Black out with Levis




Disclaimer: Items marked with * were gifted

------------------------------

My second and last post in collaboration with Levis and it's Line 8 collection is styling an all black outfit. They asked me how to wear black in March/April and in my mind, black is an year colour right? Well it is definitely in my wardrobe but for the more colourful gals out there I thought I would style something that might get you in an all black attire? 

At the first glance, yes, this outfit looks quite harsh but pairing it with clean crisp white trainers uplifts it and makes it so clean cut and chic! Starting off with the muscle tee, what I love about pairing it with the other black garments is that the tee is in a washed out shade. Close to grey so creating this contrast just breaks up the colour a little bit from the jacket and the jeans. By adjusting small details like this it's an easy way to introduce someone who stays away from the all black outfits to start creating and wearing them with confidence.

Even with the denim jacket, if it's putting you off as it's blacked out then why not add a fur throw? Pins and brooches to accessorise it up a bit. Accessories really do make an outfit and brings them to another level. Just remember that with an all black outfit, it really is a blank canvas, use accessories, wear with a new hair style or even add in a bold colour lip to really uplift it and bring out your personality. Each outfit can work with the right attitude!

------------------------------------

I can finally reveal that I'm teaming up with Levis guys! I'm super excited to be bringing you guys two posts styling their jeans. I've been a huge fan of their vintage mom jeans for ages now but this time I'm going to be styling their 'Line 8' jeans which is more slim and fitted.

The great thing about the Line 8 collection is that it features must have style for the season.It's simple, not venturing away from your classic basics. The minimal and clean cut aesthetic is what I look for in a brand and the Line 8 collection just brings that to the table. This is also bought out in their store based in Shoreditch. 

The Levi’s® Line 8 SS15 collection features a variety of fabrics, finishes and silhouettes for women, including leather details and modern interpretations on some of the brand’s most well-known products, as illustrated by the Boxy Trucker Jacket. Other standout pieces in the collection include bottoms in High Rise Slim Fit, Low Rise Slim Fit, and Low Rise Extreme Skinny Fit as well as an A-Line Dress that brings an edgy yet feminine twist to the range.

I was invited to the store to pick out some pieces to style up for you guys and for the first post, I wanted to get myself in these beautiful grey wash jeans. As you guys know, I'm always a black jeans kinda gal but this pair was too beautiful pass up. It goes perfectly with a white tee too and plays in nicely for a more feminine touch. I finished it off with my favourite white trainers of course to tie it in with the t shirt and added on my denim jacket. This is a great way to do double denim - mixing the shades! Don't go too extreme though and I would just stick with two shades. To finish it off as it was a bit chilly, I added this multicolour faux fur throw to add some texture. It's my favourite thing to throw on at the moment and keeps you feeling cosy all the time.

If you guys are around shoreditch, make sure you pop down to the store on 3 Charlotte Road, Shoreditch, EC2A 3DH
Let me know if you do and if you choose a pair of jeans, let me know which pair! I'm intrigued to hear!

Loafer day

--------------------------------------

Threw on something super simple, comfy and chic for some errands. I love simple all black outfits with a touch of colour with a scarf! Scarfs really are my go toe now & I'm loving how such a simple item can make your outfit 10 times more interesting. Especially oversized ones.

Keeping with the black palette, I decided to pop on these pointed loafers from Sarenza as well. As I have mentioned before in a previous post, I love browsing on that site for hours as they stock a variety of styles. They also do their own range which is what I'm wearing with my outfit! I love that the toe cap is a patent leather and the rest of the loafer is suede! 

You can always check out Sarenza here!

My picks: SARENZA

You guys know how I love to do these kinda posts for you all! Sharing my personal favourites from brands. This time around it's the brand SARENZA. I've featured them before in a post here. They have their own brand on their site & thought I would share some of my favourite pairs. I love how there are so many choices, different heel heights and textures. I of course stuck to my usual colour palette as well. Workable pieces which can carry you from day to night. Something super easy to style and the quality of their shoes are really fab! Let me know below which one is your favourite pair!

Spring palette




Disclaimer: Items marked with * were gifted to me

H&M chunky sweater | Finders Keepers culottes | &OtherStories mules

-------------------------------------------

I've been trying to transition into more lighter colours and lighter textures. Since I'm one for all dark colours, it's taken me a while to feel comfortable in this. To ease into it, I stuck with some faves of mine - culottes, mules and a chunky knit, but by just slowly changing the colour of them I felt that it was more wearable for me.

This chunky knit from H&M was actually a LFW bargain I picked up, H&M were having a seasonal knit sale and I got this beauty for only £10! Paired with a lighter pair of culottes it really brings out the colour. 

And these mules, the most beautiful thing ever is from &OtherStories. I saw it online and argued if I should get the these ones or black. I know I probably should of gotten the black but these were too incredible to pass up. They are perfect for spring & summer too. I'll be bringing these to LA with me of course!
