24 Pairs Of Sunglasses To Kick Start Summer

A staple in any Summer capsule collection, a good pair of sunglasses are an investment I make each year. Aside from the style factor, they are of course practical and a necessity in the sunshine so I don't mind spending that extra penny on a good pair that will last all season (and beyond). There are so many styles around (just check out Net A Porter!) from 60's to oval, from round to aviator.

Payday Treats From The Hub Of Sophisticated Fashion

Donning my comfiest flats and most casual dress I always feel ready and set to hit some stores and treat myself. Especially when I'm at Bicester Village. Famed for its selection of high end designer stores and discounted prices, a trip around payday is usually in my diary. As a blogger and general fashion lover, the pursuit of exceptional street style involves looking for some awesome designer pieces without the hefty price tag.

What Happened When I Tried To Move To NYC

A.K.A the 'concrete jungle where dreams are made of'. Well that was quite literally the case for me. The first time I visited New York was one Christmas a few years ago. It had been six months in the planning; Christmas Day at Maddison Square Garden to watch Bulls v Knicks, dinner at The Four Seasons and various other restaurants plus VIP tickets for NYE at Jay Z's club. Lil Wayne had just been let out of prison and was at Times Square - it was all very exciting (ha!). It wasn't the glitz and glamour that drew me to my decision to try to move there though but the atmosphere, the people and the culture. It was then I decided, I had to move to New York alone and get a job.

How To Spend A Day Alone In London

Aside from all the shops, bars and salons I know London like the back of my hand. It's a great place to spend a day alone. My favourite place at the moment? Connaught Village. Aside from the beautiful salons and restaurants, the pre owned designer shoes and bags are absolutely worth a visit. From Chanel bags like this to previously owned designer shoes, they're worth the short walk from Oxford Circus. The prices are great.

New Season Style Staples Catapulting Me Into Spring /Summer

Taking my cue from the occasional break through of sun and the tenderness of rare warmer temperatures, I thought it was about time to pack away some of my super thick cable knit polo necks and ankle length double duty Winter coats to make some space for some brighter, breezier Spring/Summer essentials.

Rose Gold Nike Cortez Aren’t Just For The City

I have a sneaker head for a fiancé and so he'll sometimes spoil me with a cool pair of trainers. So when he got me the Rose Gold Nike Cortez, I wore them around London for meetings and shopping. They were rarely off my feet. But what about New Forest?

Wardrobe Classics | Faux Suede Coat

Light, bright and Great for layering, faux suede coats are topping my Spring wardrobe shopping list. In a bid to strengthen last year's Spring wardrobe, I've already invested in one or two wardrobe staples. Unequivocally my favourite right now has to be this gorgeous faux suede jacket from Zara. It comes in three colours; this stunning beige, khaki and mid-pink. It's less peacock 'look at me' and more 'this is my untroubled sophisticated self'.

How To Wear This Season’s Flats

Inspired By Fashion Week   I’m obsessed with these dusty pink flats from River Island but there are two other pairs of flats that I’m dying to get. The Prada slipper and these flat over the knee boots. The thing is with flat shoes, you know they’re a great investment because you’ll wear them time and time again. Given their comfort, the ease in which it is to slip them on and the amazing styles available right…

Wardrobe Classics | Stripes

& Why Dupes Are Often Worth The Investment Like many, I first spotted the Johanna Ortiz Anastasia top on Beyonce. Teamed with a loud skirt, she certainly made an impression as she surprised guests at a Christmas party. While her outfit was incredible for a performance, it’s probably not so practical for running around London. Additionally, at £684 it’s not exactly purse friendly. Well, unless you want to wear it at every possible moment to get a good…

Wardrobe Classics | Embroidery

& Why I’m Loving This Trend Right Now My Current Wardrobe Fans of the blog and followers of my Instagram will know that my wardrobe is really rather basic. I’m talking mostly monochrome building blocks like crisp white shirts, powder blue dresses, black cigarette pants and the occasional breton stripe. But one trend you’ll very rarely see me trying out is embroidery. Yup, I own just one embroidered peasant blouse. I don’t own any of…
