Current Favourites






















Shorts- Vintage Levi 501's  Sweater- Zara- Currently on sale  Shoes- Zara Sold Out- Similar Here Bag- Balenciaga  Watch- Michael Kors  Bracelets- Urban Outfitters & Topshop


I've called this post current favourites because all the items I'm wearing are just that! I love a sweatshirt and shorts combo and even though the weathers been particularly warm lately this one is sleeveless so I can just about get away with it. I love the colour of this sweater seen also in this post  its bright and adds a summer touch to my look. These shoes were a recent purchase from Zara which I haven't had off since I got them, they are unfortunatley sold out but I've picked some similar ones which are linked above. Lastly my Balenciaga bag which I've had for years is probably my most used bag of the moment. So simple and goes with everything. An investment piece for sure! This is my usual day to day look for summer. 

Do you have any current favourites at the moment? 

As always thank you for reading. Have a great week!

Summer Stripes







Dress- French Connection Similar Here  Shoes- Zara- Sold Out- Similar Here & Here  Bag- Balenciaga Sunglasses- Topshop 


With the sudden spurt of gorgeous sunshine we've been having lately I thought this striped Midi dress was the perfect outfit for some drinks with friends. I've actually had this dress a while so it's no longer available but there are loads of similar dresses out there and I have picked one of my favourites in the links above. My shoes were a recent sale purchase from Zara, they have unfortunately sold out but again I have searched for similar styles. I posted this look on my Instagram page and had some lovely comments so I thought I would blog this look. 

Have a great week and thanks for reading

Denim One Piece














Boiler Suit- Zara Sold Out- Love This & This  Cross body bag- Zara ( Now On Sale)  Shoes- Zara Similar Here  Also Love These  Scarf worn as a belt- Alexander McQueen  Bracelet- COS  Lip- Mac Korean Candy Mixed with Topshop Rio Rio 


Today's look I had to play around with a bit, because I am so petite I thought this boiler suit drowned me a little. After trying numerous belts on I had an idea to use my scarf! I love an item that can be used as many other things. Money well spent I would say! I love playing around with a look to make it individual to me. I've gone for a pop of colour in my bag and shoes to brighten it all up. I'm totally converted, I Love this boiler suit!

How do you play around with your style to make it individual to you? 

Thanks for reading

Woman Up! With Sheppard Style



















A few weeks ago I was given an amazing opportunity to shadow and work with Gemma Sheppard of Sheppard Style. She is one of the leading stylists on the circuit with a portfolio including celebrity clients. Needless to say I was honoured to share the day shooting Ashley Roberts brand new video Woman Up See the video here. Gemma had not only styled Ashley for this shoot but Kimberley Wyatt and the four dancers.

The day for me started off early at the studio in Wimbledon where I met with Gemma. I started unpacking the clothes that had been kindly gifted from Aldo, ASOS , JD Sports and Lipsy. I quickly learnt much prep goes into styling a shoot. Gemma was organised and calm which made me feel instantly at ease. Previous to the shoot Gemma gives a brief (seen above) of the kind of looks she is wanting to achieve on the day so everyone is on the same page so to speak. 

Ashley had three looks which were placed on a rail in her her room.

Look 1: Neon one piece under a black Organza Jacket and Red strappy sandals from ALDO.



Look 2: Denim hotpants with lace shorts worn underneath, Moschino Belt, Cropped top, leather jacket and Balmain Boots (which were even more amazing in the flesh)
 

Look 3: Adidas printed shorts, Black Bralet from ASOS, White Jacket & Gianmarco Lorenzi shoes. 

The dancers had two looks each

Look 1: Gold High Waisted hot pants from French Connection, Neon Bralet from ASOS with a tropical printed bomber jacket, strappy sandals from ALDO and tropical printed snapback from JD Sport. 

Look 2: Black High Waisted hot pants from ASOS, Black Bralet from ASOS, Leather biker Jacket from Michelle Keegan's range for Lipsy and Nike high top trainers kindly gifted from JD Sports.

I assisted with arranging the looks in the order they were being shot and then packing them away once they had been used. From a stylists point of view, I learnt that organisation is the key to a shoot running smoothly. 

I have never shadowed a stylist before so the whole day was a huge eye opener to exactly how much work goes into creating the finished product you all see. For me the day was so inspiring and definitely unforgettable. Massive thanks to Gemma for inviting me along and letting me share the day with her.

Keeping Things Simple










































Top- Zara  Jeans- Topshop (Love These)  Shoes- Zara (On Sale now)  Bag- Topshop (Obsessed with this)  Bracelet & Rings- Topshop 


Today's all white look is kind of like a blank canvas as you can add as many or as little accesories and colours to dress it up or down as you like. I've gone for a simple look by keeping my accesories to a minimum. I've added a pop of colour with my bag and shoes and of course because it's me a bright lip! This look could easily be turned into an evening look by adding a statement necklace and clutch. I love a little white on white this summer!

Summer Bright's





















Dress- Zara- Sold Out (Similar Here)  Shoes- Zara (Love These) & These  Bag- Zara (On Sale)  Sunglasses- Topshop  Lip- MAC So Chaud  


I've done it again... head to toe Zara! Again not intentional! I have been waiting for the perfect day to wear this bright dress and today was the day. This is so bright and vibrant that wearing it on a dull day just doesn't cut the mustard! Although this dress is a fine knit because of the loose fit it's comfortable to wear when it's blazing hot! I picked up these gorgeous shoes in the Zara sale along with this bag which I thought went perfect with the bright colour of the dress along with (of course) a red lip! My favourite. 

I say it every time but I really hope this summer weather is here to stay now! Enough of the rain and clouds my wardrobe is not geared up for it especially at this time of year!

Have a great weekend, thanks for reading.

Vintage 501










Jacket- Mango  Love This  Cami- Topshop- Similar Here  Shorts- Vintage Levi 501's  Bag- Balenciaga 
Shoes- Zara - Similar Here  Bracelet- Topshop  Lips- MAC Lustering  Sunglasses- Vintage 


Today's post is centered around these Vintage Levi 501 Jean Shorts. I recently purchased these from a little independent vintage boutique in Sheffield. I've wanted some nice denim cut off's for a while but have never found the perfect pair that fit quite right or that aren't far too short. These are the perfect pair, they sit high on the waist and fall at just a nice length. I know I will be getting my wear out of these and as always I've thought of a million ways to style them up already! Today was a gorgeous sunny day so I went for a glass of wine and catch up with one of my close friends in a country pub. I've paired them today with a summery white blazer, simple cami and some block heels (which are the comfiest shoes ever!).
