Missguided holiday picks!


Been looking through Missguided for holiday pieces for my trip to Thailand in less than a months time! I'm so stoked to go back and it's going to be pretty damn hot so finding pieces which I won't feel so uncomfortable and get irritated in is a mission! But here are my picks! I chose for pieces that I could dress up or down!

Comfy cinema dressing

Tescos ribbed pants | Keepsake cami* | Adidas Superstars | Topshop bomber | AW bag

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

Since I spend a lot of my time at the cinema, I'm always styling up new comfortable outfits that I can wear & eat a lot in. This one is definitely one of my favourites.

These ribbed flare pants (similar to the Zara ones) were actually from Tescos and was about £14 I believe! It does come with a matching top but I went and styled it with a simple high neck cami. I love playing with shapes and textures so that's why I added in the silk high shine bomber jacket from Topshop! I've been wearing it a lot since I bought it. Been searching for a good bomber for a while now & caved when I saw this one from Topshop.

Ofcourse, my Adidas Superstars are a go to when it comes to comfort dressing. I need to get them in other colours!

Geisha Ninja






Styled & Shot by Natalie Liao

So on the last day in LA, Natalie decided to style & shoot me. Something fun and editorial. I love collaborating in any way with my friends as a wave of creativity just inspires me to do more. We went for a white on white attire and finished it off with my Balenziaga tote. It was so much fun to shoot with her and wish I lived closer so shoots like this could happen more often!

Goodbye Hollywood!

Brandy Melville flannel shirt | Choies boots* (real ones here) | Mulberry Effie tote  
Topshop slip dress (similar here) | Celine sunnies

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

So on our last day in LA, we got to explore a lot of breath taking places! I had to shoot my outfit at one of them for sure and I chose the Hollywood sign. My outfit that day was totally a LA inspired one. A simple slip dress, statement boots and a flannel shirt as a throw over. Super comfy and one of my favourites which I will be wearing more during the summer here in the UK.

I still can't believe LA is now over and I'm back in the UK. More hard to swallow is how close we got to the sign! I have no idea how we got there as a friend drove us there but I'm so grateful to be able to travel with friends and meet new faces with my job! Let me know if you guys like this outfit and any places you wanna recommend I go traveling!

Nasty gals do it better!




Disclaimer: Items marked with * were gifted

Brandy Melville flannel | Nasty Gal skirt* | Nasty Gal mules* | Topshop Band tee

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

I got the chance to visit the Nasty Gal HQ whilst out in LA and couldn't feel more overwhelmed with the love they gave me and Leanne! Nasty Gal is one of a few brands I really love and look up to for such a long time and it was incredible to get noticed by them. After the office visit, we were gifted with an outfit of our choice I went for something that touches base on my other style side. 

When I saw this heavily fringe detailed skirt my heart skipped a beat. I seriously couldn't believe that it was a Nasty Gal brand piece and had to choose it straight away! I paired it with my trusty band tee and a flannel shirt to finish off the look to make it more casual.

Next up is the mules - these are my favourite pair that I have come across. I love the subtle fringing detail. It matches perfectly with my skirt and adds a little kick to the plain mules. They are also super comfy, I wore them out to dinner that night & my feel were still in good shape!

Trust me, I also went a little crazy in the Nasty Gal stores on Melrose and in Santa Monica - a haul video will follow soon! So keep an eye out!

I just wanna say a huge thank you to Nasty Gal for my goodies and for having me and Leanne come and visit the incredible HQ! It was such a dream for us!

OOTD with Natalie Liao!

All laced up!

H&M tee | Missguided shorts*
---------------------------------------------------------------------

So I'm currently in LA but NOT going to Coachella for the 100th time (lol). I've lost count of how many times me & Leanne has been asked that. So being a sad girl & not attending the most fabulous of all festivals - I'm in K-town exploring LA and eating as much as I can. 

This trip so far has been amazing as I get to travel and explore more with such an amazing gal - Leanne. We've done way too much shopping in a small time frame of days & I've caught the shopping bug for sure! Expect a haul/make up haul as well!

This outfit was something I wore to lounge around in. We decided to have keep the day a bit free to do some shooting, filming and just other work stuff we tried to ignore as we are in LA - still couldn't!

These shorts though - super soft & comfortable! I didn't realised that it would fit me so well and how comfortable they were going to be. The colour is soft yet workable for me and my favourite are the lace up details featured. Too amazing to pass up and goes perfect with vintage band tees!

Like the one I'm wearing but shhhh... this one is actually from H&M surprisingly! I saw it & felt it - super worn feel so I had to purchase it. Something 'Coachella'-esque I guess!

Let me know what you think of the outfit below!

Affordable Coachella style with H&M






Disclaimer: This post was sponsored by H&M & the items were bought with a gift card.

For my third instalment with H&M is to bring you some affordable Coachella style. Since Coachella is this weekend coming, you may have seen the new collaboration line launched in the HM stores. The collection bring you bohemian vibes, gypsy desert warrior and lots of patterns and fringing. Everything you could ask for to create a perfect festival outfit to be honest. 

I wanted to put together a comfy outfit which is perfect for lounging on the grass listening to music or if you're in the crowd dancing along. Starting off with this wide legged pants - the thin cotton material is a must if you're going to be on the go all day, you don't want anything tight fitting so these pants are perfect. They also have an elasticated waist line so you can eat as much as you want! I also really like how they flow about your body shape and create such a chic effortless vibe. 

Since the pants are already busy with different mixtures of patterns, I went with a plain(ish) vest top. This one is perfect as it has Coachella written across it and again -  I love how simple, minimal and soft this top is and only for £6 it's a steal! I have worn my folded up and tied it at the back to create a crop top illusion, I feel it breaks up the top from the pants a bit more.

To finish everything off, I went for a fringed black kimono - a festival go-to. The black kimono ties everything in and doesn't make your outfit too out there if you're like me and just love simple basic structures. Plus the fringing matches with the bag - perfect for carrying around your camera, water and purse! Unless you want to opt for the casual bum bag.

With the sun normally quite high in the sky, you can never go wrong with a fedora - it matches perfectly with the aesthetic of the outfit and finishes off your look perfectly.

With all these pieces, it didn't hurt my purse at all! All super affordable pieces to create a timeless festival look on a budget. Really surprised me when I took everything to the till! Let me know what you guys think of the outfit down below!

#BABESOFMISSGUIDED

BTS: Missguided shoot













So a couple of weeks a go I headed down to Manchester to shoot a couple of videos for #Babesofmissguided - a new section added on to Missguided full of their muses and I was lucky enough to be apart of it! Especially since Missguided is one of my favourite brands! Click here to see the feature!

I started my day off at 4am then headed down to Manchester station after a 4 hour journey, arrived at the studio and it was straight into hair & make up! We started with filming the first look (there was three in total) and it went smoothly. Even though I still get nervous in front of the camera, I couldn't of asked for a more calm and chilled environment and such a lovely creative team to make everything run smoothly.

After shooting the looks; 3 videos with 3 different outfits in each video ( 12 outfits I believe!) it was a wrap and you can see what happened BTS in a vlog form here as well!

I hope you guys enjoy my styling tips videos as well, they were such a blast filming and choosing what to style for each concept. Let me know below which one was your favourite below!
