Fashion: Layer Love

I don't know about you but it gets to this time of the year and I'm frantically trying to get the last few wears out of my favourite winter wardrobe pieces before the warmer weather appears. In my case it's faux fur jackets, I'm also a massive fan of layering so whilst it's still a little chilly I'm using this as the perfect opportunity to team some of my fave items together. Don't get me wrong I love the summer...I just also have a huge love for faux fur!!

Most of this looks consists of my staple go-to pieces;
Skinny Jeans- No explanation needed, a necessity in every wardrobe…perfect for all seasons.
Roll Neck- A basic lightweight top, ideal for layering, I'm constantly wearing these under shirts and graphic tees.
Shirts- Vintage finds always seem to be the best; quirky prints/stripes worn open and layered up with a tee/ roll neck. I also love them buttoned up to the top for a smarter vibe, tucked in to high-waisted jeans/trousers…or even worn as a shirt dress. There are so many possibilities! I brought this one in at the waist with a cute vintage white belt.

Teamed alongside my trusty converse, statement faux fur jacket and of course I had to throw in a bow headband. The Olympus Pen camera bag is fast becoming my fave, it’s the perfect size and makes taking out my camera hassle free…dream!

Hope you’re all having a lovely Easter J

Wishlist: Topshop SS16

So as we're wishing away the winter days and hoping that Spring gets a move on, I thought I would put together some of my fave pieces from Topshop to bring you into the new season with style...because who doesn't want to look sassy for Spring?!

I also had some birthday vouchers from my besties to spend which I've been patiently saving in the hope of warmer weather...although I'm not sure that's possible in Manchester.

Topshop as always are forever hitting the latest trends, wide leg trousers and culottes, mini pleats in the super cute midi length skirts, stripes of all shapes and sizes plus hints of metallics...set to be huge again moving into the new season. Topshop also has some fab bomber jackets in store; I'm obsessed with that champagne shade!!

Now I just have to decide which to pick from....arrrgh. Help please?!

Happy Shopping!! :)

Fashion: Fringing Fever

So for London Fashion Weekend I decided to keep the outfit casual and let the cardigan do the talking...and what a beaut this is. There's so much fringing around at the moment and I love it...from jumpers to bags and even shoes. The high-street can't seem to get enough. Fine by me!!

Unfortunately this cardi went in the ASOS sale and swiftly sold out but I have linked below a few fringe themed options you can get your mitts on. The Forever 21 version is a bargain in the sale for only £9.99!!

I've kept the rest of the look quite simple, teaming together neutral shades with a basic roll neck and these super comfy drawstring trousers from Pretty Little Thing. The scarf tied in all the colours nicely and those Zara shoes!!...there's definitely a Stella McCartney vibe going on.

I also took my Olympus Pen camera case for it's first outing from the new range of Olympus fashion accessories...yes this bag is a camera case can you believe it?! It's so nice to finally own a super cute bag that's not bulky like most cases, yet still the perfect fit for all my essentials. Go and check out the rest of the collection, it's camera heaven!

Event: London Fashion Weekend SS16

Last weekend I popped down to London for the day with the lovely Rianna Phillips for Fashion Weekend, a 3 day event which gives a commercial overview of all the major trends seen at London Fashion Week. This year it was held at the Saatchi Gallery, such a perfect venue and a great place to get inspired for the upcoming season and do a little shopping, featuring plenty of pop up brands from ready-to-wear clothing, accessories and jewellery.

There are also 2 catwalks you can attend depending on your tickets...trend and designer. We went to the trend catwalk which revealed some of the latest collections/trends and styling tips, these are close to season trends showing SS16. Silver and gold ticket holders also get a limited edition tote bag inspired by the idea of 'Graphic Romance' filled with a selection of treats, this season designed by Preen's Juston Thornton and Thea Bregazzi. 

There were 4 main trends shown for SS16;
//Americana: A bold bright and collegiate trend with a strong American vibe...stars, stripes and of course plenty of red, white and blue.

//Beautiful Botanicals: Florals of all kinds back again for SS16 from country garden to oversized prints, including mixing up floral for a head to toe playful feel.

//Pop Art Brights: A colour pop, colour block trend in primary brights with contrasting colours working alongside each other, a great day-to-night look.

//New Romance: Already hitting the high-street for SS16, such a cute ultra-feminine look filled with ruffles, lace and silk featuring a delicate pastel colour palette.

If this sounds like your cup of tea keep an eye out for next season tickets going on sale at the London Fashion Weekend website, they have a newsletter too so you can sign up to be the first to hear. I'll also be posting all the details from my London Fashion Weekend outfit right here very soon so stay tuned!!
