Seventies Suede


Zara, congratulations, you have done it. You have made the skirt of my dreams. Tan, suede and oh so '70s. An absolute season staple. I'm really enjoying adding vintage style pieces into my look lately and mixing them in some of my existing wardrobe favourites. Suede is one of my favourite trends of the moment and I'm already lusting after other pieces (see below) made from this beautiful fabric. Loving the major boho vibes!
hese photos were taken a couple of weeks ago and it now seems kinda silly that I'm wearing a fur coat considering just how warm it has been for the past few days, certainly in London anyway! 
Do you guys have any posts you'd be interested in seeing from me? I was think about doing a sort of 'career-journey-so-far' post?

Paisley & Peacocks




With the nights getting lighter and the spirit of the summer starting to excite me, I've been making the most of the warmer weather in this beautiful printed shirtdress by Fashion Pills. I was really drawn to gorgeous paisley print and the mix of purple and blue tones. So cool!
I'm admittedly not much of an animal person, but nobody can deny the beauty of the peacocks that joined me while Josh and I shot this outfit! I find everything from their stunning feathers and rich colours so mesmerising, its hard to even believe they are real sometimes! I'm hoping one day, I'll be in the perfect moment where a peacock opens their feathers and I can get a photo!
I'm back at work this week after a glorious long weekend in Yorkshire. I was planning on getting quite a bit of uni work done but instead ended up catching up with friends in the sunshine, playing tennis and visiting family - not to mention having a few much-deserved drinks after barely going out in the past couple of months!

Spring Into April


Is it really April already? These past few months since I've returned from New York seem to have flown by and I can't quite believe the daffodils are blooming already. I'm back home this weekend to spend Easter catching up with my friends and family - most of whom I haven't seen since Christmas time. I wanted to share these photos which were taken a few days ago (yes you guessed it) in Holland Park.
Now that the season is transitioning, I'm finding the balance between winter and spring dressing. Some days the optimist in me tells says it's bare leg weather, but let's face it, most of the time I'm still wanting to cover up and stay warm! This sleeveless jacket is one of my favourite Spring picks to add a refreshing flare to an otherwise dull grey and black outfit. I picked up this jacket when browsing in Bershka last week and surprisingly have worn it so much since. Thrown over my favourite jeans and high neck top plus accessorised with my new statement ring from Jewel Street, it can take an outfit from simple to stylish in seconds.
If you've been following my blog a while, you may know that its taken me a few years before introducing a pair of jeans into my wardrobe, but I've never looked back since. Its crazy that when trying to style a look with black jeans... I actually felt like I had nothing to wear with them. I guess my mind (and my wardrobe) works very differently! Here, I'm wearing the new Black Highwaisted Lily Jeans by Oasis which I can't recommend enough. Having worked in store for Oasis in the past, as you may know, I'm a really big fan of the brand and are my store go-to for jeans. The Lily jeans certainly do not disappoint and have a super comfortable body-sculpting skinny fit, with a high rise and ankle grazing finish.

Lady-Like



I've never considered myself much of a "girly girl". Although my outfit posts over the last few years might tell a different story (see pink floral dress and feminine flowy skirts), I like to think I'm more of a smart chick one day then a tough tomboy the next. But my friends tell me different and have in the past been labelled 'the girliest girl' that they know. This full skirt by Lucy Paris kinda makes me feel I'm playing dress up but I also LOVE the femininity of this look and how it makes me feels so lady-like! Lucy Paris are a brand I first discovered whilst interning at Nylon Magazine in New York late last year. I wore an amazing sequin crop top and printed midi skirt by the brand when shooting for Nylon Magazine Online back in December. 
I'm a strong believer in wearing more masculine structured accessories to balance out feminine pieces in an outfit. Here, I've opted for black leather with silver hardware for both my shoes and my bag which unintentionally match very well together. Make-up wise I've kept my look very minimal with a strong brow and nude lip.

London Cool


Considering I've lived in London for over 2 years, it surprises even me that this my first time striking a pose amongst the classic red telephone boxes. Not being from London, I still do get a little excited every time I see them, as they're such a iconic staple of the city. These photos were taken in the pleasant neighbourhood of Bayswater on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. There's something magical about being in London when the sun is shining, I genuinely feel like a much happier person!
Its been a while since I've worn my beloved leopard print fur coat on my blog, which I've had almost 5 years now and its still one of my favourite pieces! Its funny to think (MAJOR throwback) that I wore the coat in one of my first blog posts over 4 years ago. Its crazy to think how much my life has changed since then.
These shots were taken a few days before my trip to Italy, and some of you may have seen via my Twitter or Instagram that I unfortunately left my camel fedora on the plane! Silly Mon! Luckily, it was only about £8 from Primark so I'm hoping I can pop by and grab myself another!
