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.

When I was in school (way back in the day) wearing glasses was not cool and they certainly were not the fashion statement like they are now. For the last couple of years wearing glasses is seen as geek chic with many people wanting the latest designer glasses even if they don’t need them.

In this new era of glasses being cool I found myself needing them and now they a staple ‘style’ piece to my everyday life, I wear them with pride (yes I have prescription glasses, I don’t wear them for fashion). So you could imagine my excitement when as a fashion blogger and a glasses wearer I received an invite to the CrossEyes bloggers Valentine’s event.

The champagne and cupcakes were a great way to welcome bloggers into the event…#Lush!

photo (4)I had a fab evening not only did I enjoy the refreshments and being free to try on several pairs of glasses (I do need a new pair so this was a good opportunity to see what’s on the market) but also enjoyed the conversion with the owner who is extremely passionate about offering stylish yet affordable eye-wear.

With this…

Ladies and Gentlemen I present to you CrossEyes who originate from Denmark but are now ready to make their mark in London Town! Check them out at http://www.crosseyes.co.uk for the perfect pair of glasses ‘for you’. They also have a shop based in Clerkenwell, one of the coolest places in London might I add. Style is my thing so trust me on this one!

To note…

Looking cool in glasses is 50% getting the right pair for your face and 50% rocking the style with confidence. Whether you already have glasses, or need to get them soon, here are fives tips if you’re feeling self-conscious with your glasses on.

  1. Pick glasses that reflect your personality.
  2. Learn to like your glasses.
  3. Don’t be afraid to wear them in public, they are apart of who you are.
  4. Make sure your glasses fit your face properly.
  5. When you’re trying on glasses, pick out the ones that look best on you.

London Fashion Week 2014 #LFW

For those who love fashion and people watching Somerset House is the place to be during London Fashion Week.

Winter was in full swing during some parts of today with it being cold, wet and windy but this did not stop those venturing out to be among the who’s who of the fashion world.

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.
