Daisy dress

This is a bit of a strange pic, I know, but I forgot to selfie it so had to steal a snap from someone else… I was playing charades, just FYI.

I love this strapless, Daisy print dress that I got from ASOS this summer.

Cape Town

I went to sunny Cape Town with work so had to resurface my summer wardrobe (very exciting).

Here is my first South Africa selfie in my gorgeous hotel room – wearing a black dress I bought on eBay, a vintage Ralph Lauren belt and Michael Kors sunglasses. mk

Leather skirt

I love this faux leather skirt paired with something really casual (scruffy) on top…

White t-shirt

It’s not the most exciting outfit in the world, but grey jeans, black biker boots and a white t-shirt is my favourite look.

A good quality white t-shirt is my no. 1 wardrobe staple – I have about ten… But please excuse my black-bra-fashion-faux-pas here and remember to wear a nude bra instead!

T-shirt: Blk Denim, Jeans: H&M, old, but similar here, Boots: Daniel Footwear.go-to-outfit

Bomber

I have a thing for bomber jackets but this one I bought from ASOS last year is my favourite…bomber

Cropped

I later headed out for my friend Hannah’s birthday party looking a lot less scruffy — unfortunately the same can’t be said for my room.

Daytime

Saturday daytime look… Slouchy and casual for a very lazy day of catching up with reality TV (mostly Toddlers and Tiaras, it’s my guilty pleasure). I’d also like you to meet my beautiful dressing table that I found on the side of the road…

Layering

I’m waiting for my Canada Goose bomber to arrive so for now I’m relying on lots of layering to keep out the winter chill…

Today I’m wearing a Topshop embellished collar shirt (old), ASOS grey jumper, Oasis leather waistcoat (old), black Zara oversized tuxedo coat (old) and my trusty Zara tartan scarf/cape/shawllayering

Bling

I seem to have developed an unhealthy obsession with phone cases — I rarely wear anything sparkly so I think this is my way of getting a bling fix.

This is my new favourite – a  metal skull with diamantes for eyes and surrounded by grey crystals. Phonecase: SkinnyDip, Peplum top: ASOSphonecase

Skate

Last week I went to the press preview night of Skate at Somerset House. I had an ice skating incident when I was little and have been terrified ever since so getting me on the ice was a bit traumatic — and really annoying for the totally proficient ice skaters I was with.

Anyway, Lily Cole stopped me as I was being dragged round to tell me we had the same hat on… Though it’s no surprise that she was wearing it as it’s her design. Her knitwear sideline The North Circular teamed up with Innocent to design a collection of bobble hats handknitted in the UK by grannies. All sale profits go to Age UK to help keep older people warm this winter and the hats even feature the name of the granny who knitted them  - Lily pulled mine off and told me it had been knitted by ‘Sheila’.

p.s. After a lot of whining and about an hour on the ice, you’ll be pleased to know I managed a few laps on my own. lily1

Spring clean

No outfit post today because I was in jogging bottoms and my dad’s old jumper all day and couldn’t have looked worse.

I did, however, manage a mammoth spring clean – swear I almost halved my belongings. I am quite sentimental about my things (basically I’m a hoarder) so this was a long time coming…

I also put up this rail for my wardrobe/shoe rack overspill… VERY proud of it. wardrobe

Leather

I’ve been in search of the perfect leather jacket for so long – I’ve tried on tons but was holding out for ‘The One’ (I’m aware I’ve made leather jacket shopping sound like wedding dress shopping but I consider it to be just as important).

Finally, I found it. It’s from I Love 2 Love and it wasn’t among the most expensive ones I tried on but it was definitely the best and I’m obsessed – pretty sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of it on here…leather3

Alexa Chung

Today I interviewed Alexa Chung at the launch of her new make-up collaboration with Eyeko – you can read the interview here.

Alexa has always been one of my style crushes (as have the Olsen twins, but we’ll save that for another post) and FYI – she is just as beautiful in real life. A bit like a doll – I couldn’t take my eyes off her. alexa-chung

Double peplum

I’m still in love with peplum tops so I woke up and decided to wear two at once.

Camel

It’s really cold today (fake smoking with your breath kind of cold) so I wrapped up warm in this oversized Hugo Boss camel coat with gold studs.camel2

Winter walk

I escaped London this weekend and headed to the countryside for some fresh, unpolluted air and the colour green.

Wore my oversize Zara tartan scarf (as seen before) as a shawl to keep out the winter chill.cape

Slinky

I wore this Rihanna for River Island dress for the Fashion For The Brave dinner on Friday night. It’s curve-hugging and has a gold zip that runs down the length of the back… Perfect for the party season!
