This summer I have put together some amazing little casual everyday outfits that I have been sharing through Instagram. I just wanted to do a bit of a breakdown of each of my recent outfits and show you how to achieve the looks!
Firstly is this super comfy Minimal Khaki Jumpsuit and “make-a-statement” earrings!
I’m sure there are other people like me who are constantly seeking a new look and desperately avoiding being caught wearing the same thing as anyone else. I feel the best way to shake looking similar to others is to own your unique style sense. I am someone who keeps hold of key pieces of clothes, accessories and shoes and brings them back from time to time, like these bright orange and green Aldo earrings for example. Having key items like these makes it easy for me to style up simple outfits and make them into more of a statement, while also knowing that they are too old for many other people to still have.
This minimal, lose fitting, khaki jumpsuit is a perfect example of an outfit that, on it’s own, does not say much but styled up with just enough statement making accessories and hair styling, creates a sought after outfit. I paired this with some black-on-black Calvin Klein sliders to top of the look.

OMG OMG OMG.
Yep menswear is looking increds for 2018! Paris Fashion Week: Men is on right now and so far we have seen some of the hottest collections to be launched in 2018.
Hold on.. I’m going to run through my faves right now!
Starting with Louis Vuitton.
Now Louis V always has strong fashion week game but this Spring 2018 Menswear collection of surfer chic luxe speaks to me on all levels. Is it because they look like a bunch of models who have just strolled out of the ocean fully dressed in Louis… perhaps, not the point though. The collection is great. Check out my highlights below.
Another incredible collection shown is from Off-White.
Off-White’s collection is hot and heavy and the opening of “Another First Show” on Wednesday had special guests flocking to see the Spring 2018 collection, including professional basketball players Serge Ibaka, Shabazz Muhammad and Dwyane Wade, alongside the amazing actress who is Gabrielle Union! Also attended by rappers Joey Bada$$, Reese Laflare and Lil Peep, and creatives like Tremaine Emory.
The show was heavily fuelled by recent politics and was expressed thoroughly by designer Virgil Abloh and collaborative artist Jenny Holzer, with the aim of addressing global political upheaval and weighty issues like the refugee crisis in Europe. The show has been described as “taking the temperature of our time” in what Virgil Abloh has referred to as “the most important collection I’ve ever done”.
So with no further ado, here is the full catwalk in all its glory.
Back soon with more from the upcoming Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week!

With the heatwave that has been happening in the UK everyone is raiding wardrobes and stores for things to wear to not feel too hot/sticky and generally bothered. During one of my shopping raids I came across this really cute play suit which you can wear with sandals/flip flops/sliders and also with heels depending on the occasion.
Zara do summer clothing so well so it’s no surprise that this amazing little embroidered play suit is one of their little miracles!
You can accessorise this playsuit so well with some of the amazing jewellery currently in stock in Oliver Bonas.

Hey FABULOUS people!
I did not realise how shouty I have been with my colourful clothes as of late but it is only until you start taking photos daily that you begin to realise the patterns of your own style.
Here is one of my fave outfits at the moment. Nice and bright just in time for
S P R I N G !
I have had this Zara dress for a L O N G time but have dusted it off and brought it back to life. I love a bit of cupboard renewal, you know what I mean, that point you get to when you leave clothes in your wardrobe so long that you forget they even exist.. until you physically cannot fit anything in your wardrobe and are forced to clear it out. Well thats where I got to last week when I found my pretty pink dress!
Pair a 60’s style pink dress with a yellow coat and you have one very bright human indeed. In the spirit of things I felt that there was only one place that I could photograph this outfit and that was Portobello Road, colour complements colour, don’t you think?!
I must really love Zara as that is where my Coat, Dress and Bag are all from. The Necklace however is from Topshop and the shoes from Office. I would link the items but seeing this is a reworked outfit from my old clothes stash it would be a little out of date! However if you look out for my next blog posts I will be sharing links to my outfits which have been bought recently!
Until next time my loves!
Hugs & Kisses

Happy International Women’s Day you lovely ladies!
I am so excited about today! So Much is happening!
We may no longer burn our bras, but we still have much to protest.
Equality can not be argued, or opinions shared upon it, it just is.
So today I would like to remind little ol me and the rest of the fabulous kitty wielding, titty bearing, strong minded and soft souled women on this earth that we are E Q U A L to men. I say equal because feminism isn’t about the empowerment of women over men it is the endeavour for equality throughout humanity. The human race would not exist if it was not born from a woman’s womb and fed from her body for 9 months, but equally none of us would be here without a Father.
H E R E ‘ S T O S T R O N G W O M E N
M A Y W E K N O W T H EM
M A Y W E B E T H EM
M A Y W E R A I S E T H EM
The only reason anyone could have to not support equality on earth, regardless of Age, Race or Gender, is if they are not from Earth or indeed born from one of our beautiful women.
H A V E A G R E A T D A Y L A D I E S , G O D K N O W S Y O U D E S E R V E I T !

I hope you have all had as great a weekend as I have had?!
My weekends are seeming to be more busy than ever at the moment but I am loving it. For just over a month now I have accepted a challenge, set to me by my partner in crime/boyfriend/best friend/pain in my chubby butt, and I have grasped it with both hands and ran with it.
He challenged me to post a picture a day on Instagram for as long as possible, and so far (35 pictures/35 days later) I am going strong! At day 0 I was starting with no followers or pictures, a complete blank Instagram canvas in all it’s glory, now 35 days later I have just reached 3012 followers. When starting this I couldn’t of imagined getting such a great response but it has been a truly inspiring journey so far and I am bursting with new ideas for what can possibly come next!
Of course the person who I have been dragging from here, there, and bloody everywhere, to photograph me in a million places is the one who’s idea this was in the first place. Did he shoot himself in the foot..? Maybe. But he loves me.. I think. Perhaps.
So please go ahead and click on the link I’ve added in below to check out my Instagram page and let me know what you think.
