‘Tis the Season: Holiday!

Holiday time! Off to celebrate a friend’s birthday! Whoop Whoop…

But before any celebration can take place, one must first pack…ewww the worse part of going on holiday. Why do I hate this part so much?! Hmmm! The problem isn’t the fact that I don’t know what to pack (or even over-pack like most people) I’m actually quite organised, I usually prepare my outfits (day, evening and beachwear) at least a week before travelling, the problem is I don’t enjoy physically putting the clothes into the case. Does anyone else have this problem?! So random!

Anyhow with all my clothes safely packed in my suitcase I can now go off and enjoy my first ever all-inclusive holiday to Turkey! #SoExcited

Lushness of the Week: Liz Nehdi

I recently attended the Liz Nehdi spring/summer 2015 collection launch party at Wolf & Badger, Notting Hill. As I entered the store I was made to feel welcome straight away and felt a sense of freshness by the magnificent pieces of art displayed around the store. The art I speak of are fabulous scarves, pocket squares and handkerchiefs which started of as paintings. Although the scarves are very colourful they are not in your face colourful, this may be due to the delicate fabrics that are used to make such lushness. If you want to add some freshness to your spring/summer wardrobe these scarves would be the perfect addition.

Festival season is here…

I love experiencing new things…so you can imagine my excitement at going to my first festival. With this comes the responsibility of knowing what to wear. A festival is an all day thing so being comfortable has to be a priority. Being in the UK the weather is unpredictable therefore an outfit that can survive all climates will also need to be taken into consideration. Although being comfortable should be priority, one should also make an effort to look good. Just because you’re at a festival doesn’t mean you have to pretend you got ready in a tent. Festival style is about having some fun!

This is what I decided to go for:

  1. A hat is perfect if you don’t have an umbrella and there’s a bit of drizzle. I went for a beloved bowler hat from Topshop which I purchased last years.
  2. Layers: make sure you have a few light layers to survive the expected wind, rain and sunny spells. A shirt you can easily take off and wrap round your waist is a great choice to keep warm in or cool down when taken off, the taking off part is for when the sun comes out.
  3. Backpack: who wants to lug a heavy one shoulder bag around with them all day. A rucksack is an easy, convenient way of transporting all essential items that would be needed on the day.
  4. Flats: no need for heels as you will be on your feet all day! Plimsolls, trainers or wellies are the perfect choice.

Travel chic

Holiday season is upon us!

How to stay stylish & comfortable for a flight…

When flying take two things into consideration when choosing an outfit; where you are and where you are going!

  1. I usually travel early in the morning so a pair of dark glasses is a must for me. Not only do they look stylish but they cover up my tiredness.
  2. Wear comfortable trousers, it’s ok to wear tracksuit style trousers but just make sure they look as fitting and stylish as jeans. I don’t usually travel in jeans due to them not really being comfortable to sit in for long periods of time and they can leave you feeling quite hot.
  3. The right jacket is very important as it finishes of an outfit. I usually go for a blazer as it dresses up a laid back outfit.
  4. Comfortable easy to slip on and off shoes is a must. I usually go for a freshly white pair of plimsolls.
  5. Keep accessories to a minimum especially fake jewellery as the beepers will be going off when passing through security, meaning a longer process to get through security and less time in duty free.

Kate Moss for Topshop

Kate Moss is back with her first Topshop collection in 4 years and I was there to witness the craziness that went down on launch day, I’m pretty sure the collection sold out within minutes.

I couldn’t say wholeheartedly that I loved the collection as some of the pieces appeared to be a little dated with Kate probably wearing the pieces when she did her last collection …(eeek sorry KateMoss/Topshop lovers). However, I don’t want to be a complete debbie downer as I did see a couple of show-stopping pieces, like this sequin dress.                                                          20140429_184539

You can definitely see the influence of Kate Moss in the collection, it has that festival/holiday/party vibe going on.

 

 

All White…

I love me some colour but I also love simplicity!

It may be a little premature to take on summer’s biggest colour trend in full force whilst the ground itself has potential to be white at any given moment (brrrr) but start as you mean to go on. ! I love the all-white trend even in winter. One does not have to wait until spring to get that refreshing clean cut look. Enjoy the calmness white brings

Absolutely love this Armani dress.
