I was venturing down the pub in the evening with my friends so it was more of a casual affair. I threw on my beloved rip knee skinnies from Topshop as they are so comfortable and us girls like to grab the sofas, sit back and chill. I kept it all very simple and went for a white pocket front top with a cross over back, it’s a Topshop oldie but it has served me well over the years.

I already posted up the gorgeous trousers I got from the Gok for Tu range last week and next up is this lovely metallic jumper. It has a cable knit patter on the front and rolled up sleeves which give it a more casual vibe. The back has a zip that runs about a third of the way down the middle so it’s easy to slip on and off without the threat of ruining your hair if you’ve spent ages trying to perfect that messy bun look (that is meant to look as if you have just shoved it up in two minutes when in reality you have done it again and again about 6 times…..come on girls, you know exactly what I am talking about).

 Just a quick one today, I am still catching up on old outfits I shot before I went on holiday. This is the last of them….I was going out for a friends birthday and was having one of those ‘I have absolutely no idea what to wear’ kind of days. I ended up pulling this out oversized t-shirt dress from Topshop off the rail and it was comfy and simple so I decided to roll with it. I had to shoot my pictures indoors as it was bucketing down (which is never any fun on a night out).

Recently I had the chance to view the new Gok Wan for Tu pieces from his new ‘Monochrome’ collection, I loved the range and was lucky enough to be able to pick my favourite pieces. I was instantly drawn to these gorgeous check print trousers. They are the perfect spring trouser and will work with so many options. You can wear them to work in a more formal style with a shirt tucked in or like I have opted here give them a more casual twist by adding a boyfriend tee, some flats and a fedora. You can also work them into a night time look by wearing a cami top and some pointed courts or strappy lace up heels which are very ‘of-the-moment’. I love these trousers and I will be getting so much wear out of them over the next few months through spring and summer.

 I was recently asked along to Debenhams HQ in London to style a pair of jeans for their blog The Daily Debrief. I picked out these jeans before hand and as you probably know I am a big ripped knee jeans lover. I settled on this pair but it was so hard to pick as there is such a big choice on offer at Debenhams.

We went to the nearby beautiful Fitzroy Square, which is now a new fave blog location of mine. We were also able to pick out some pieces to style our look and I decided to go for a day to day casual look something I would wear If I was running errands or doing a bit of shopping etc. I opted for double denim with this gorgeous shirt in a nice light shade. I wore it at first then later on tied it round my waist for more casual look. If you read my blog you will know how much I love a striped top so I couldn’t not pick it out to wear.

Comfort is a big key factor when I look for a new pair of jeans and this pair certainly didn’t disappoint. They are so soft and easy to wear, there is nothing worse than a pair of jeans that are too tight or restrict you in any way at all. I layered up with a leather biker and burgundy trainers to finish the look.

You would have probably seen that I went to London Fashion Week with the always lovely Laura from ‘Laura’s Little Locket‘. We hit up the cobbles and oogled all the fashionistas in their oh-so-stylish ensembles. I already posted this outfit on my Instagram back in Feb but I only just realised I didn’t actually blog it and since I already took the pics I thought I would show you guys on here too. After browsing the gorgeous surroundings of Somerset House we headed over the road from to ME London, a swanky hotel with an amazing roof top bar with hard to beat views over London. Overlooking the hustle and bustlt of Somerset House and The Shard in the distance we sipped on peppermint tea to warm us up a bit as February in the UK isn’t exactly the warmest of times. Once we thawed out slightly we headed back out to snap some pics on the street.

Hi guys! Ok so lately I have been feeling a little bogged down with all things blogging/vlogging. I went to America with my family and  I was going to blog and vlog the whole holiday but at the last minute I decided it was the right time (and much needed) to have a little break and just enjoy the holiday and not live it through a camera lens. I did Instagram while I was there but I just needed to step back from the blogging for a little while and just have some quality family time. I am now back and excited to get going again and have a fresh burst of energy for my blog. I have a few outfits that I shot before I went away. I really don’t want them to go to waste so I will be posting them first and then I will be jumping forward to my current outfits. Just incase you get all confused as you may have seen on my Instagram & Twitter etc that I have lilac/purple hair at the moment but in the blog photos you can see it’s a little longer and there’s no purple in sight, just wanted to clear up any confusion before it happens! Without further adue……
