London Retro

Glasses Direct

If you saw this post, you'll know I recently acquired my first pair of spectacles and I’m on a bit of a roll now. Thanks to Glasses Direct, I’ve found the new way to shop for my glasses – home trials. It’s dangerous.
As I’m the most indecisive person in the world, this is perfect for me. I can spend a week of my own time trying them on at home, rather than annoying people in store humming and ha-ing, only to feel bad if none suit.
I can get family and friends opinions and get use to different shapes or styles. Then simply free post them back and either order the winning pair or re order another 4 to try.
I really love this London Retro style after spying it on Rebecca’s instagram photo, each style is perfectly, well, retro.

I would love to hear which ones you think I suit the best, if any? Go on - help an indecisive girl out.



Day out in Marylebone

Free People Coat

Last weekend, Kristabel kindly invited me to try out a new restaurant with her in Marylebone – The Canvendish is one of the prettiest restaurants, aswel as serving one of the yummiest steaks I’ve had in a long time. Plus a Raspberry Ginger Mojito – oops naughty at lunchtime ;)
Located in the heart of Marylebone it was great spending some time wondering around and taking it all in, oh to live there.



Wearing a new winter coat from Free People, every piece I own from them becomes my new favourite item of clothing and this is no exception. I love the little details and that something slightly unique in all of their designs.
This coat is super snug, like a giant wrap. Worn oversized or pulled in to make it more fitted.
Of course I wear it oversized, teamed with my Jamie jeans and cute Bertie shoes. Speaking of Bertie - how amazing are their selection of over the knee boots. As a go to trend for winter i've had my eye on a pair for a while now!

Bare legs in November, climate change is here folks!
It wasn't like I needed much persuasion but I told myself this dress could be worn in lots of different ways. So far I wasn’t wrong. Perfect with polo necks or shirts, with tights or without and dressed up or down. This super cute A-line dress from & Other Stories gives me retro vibes and the colour will make winter days a lot more fun.
This day was a no tights day, with a lightweight polo neck and my favourite Dune shoes that I can’t stop wearing. 
We ventured to the National Gallery which is a great Sunday outing and it’s free! I would love to hear your favourite places to visit on a Sunday, as I’m always looking for new places to see and things to do.
Lucky for me I finally got round to getting a pair of proper glasses, so each painting was crystal clear.
I have been dying to get back to the PLAYN show room in Boxpark Shoreditch, ever since I filmed a piece there for Cosmopolitan. I absolutely loved their motto as it reminded me of how I approach my style everyday.

The 80:20 Principle
"Based on a principle of 80% plain and 20% play, we design classic shapes with focus on subtle details."

All PLAYN frames are made by hand, one by one and you can really tell the quality. Even better if you buy a pair, they plant a tree. 
I went for Felice in Sakura after MUCH deliberation, apologies to Tess for having to deal with the most indecisive person in the world.

What do you think of my geek chic?

Street Style

TK Maxx street Style

The main reason I started my blog wasn’t because I thought I was super “stylish” it was more because I was inspired by other bloggers and street style around me. I wanted to share my fashion finds and how I used this inspiration to style things my own way. I think it's not what you wear, it’s how you wear it that makes you individual.

This month I got involved with TK Maxx to shoot some street style with them, which was so much fun.
Their Ss14 and Aw14 Me. By Me. campaigns feature real people with a range of ages and backgrounds to cement the notion that there is no right or wrong in fashion and individual style should be celebrated.

With this in mind we hit the streets of Hackney for our shoot armed with some of TK Maxx’s latest coats, which was even more perfect as we all know how much I love a coat.
I spied this cape straight away, it had to be mine. It seems to be a big trend this year but what’s great about a TK Maxx store is that there are new deliveries each day and no two stores are the same; less of that awkward moment meeting up with friends and your both in the same thing. 

We shot 3 people during the shoot who all chose a coat they felt represented their style from TK Maxx.  If like me you love to get style inspiration from real people, you should check out some of the TK Maxx shoppers featured in the latest campaign at 
Such a great idea.

A weekend spent strolling around my new town, I feel like I could spend a lifetime trying to discover London and still not see everything. It's amazing.
For my attire, a go to look of jeans and a jumper, it's the combination I love most during this unpredictable weather. Guess what, burgundy strikes again and this time in the form of another Forever21 piece. I think knitwear really is their strong point for this season, so many pretty colours and shapes to choose from.
I seem to be on a bit of a roll with this colour lately, just check out these beautiful shoes from Dune, I get so many compliments and it’s nice to move away from simple black and brown… don’t get me wrong, loving these penny loafers ... NEED! 
Finally a fedora hat that actually comes in different sizes, Barbour you are the one. I love that!

Well I don't know about you but i'm looking forward to the weekend *yehhh* Hope you are too. My friend comes to visit - So, if you have any suggestions of where we could visit, please leave a comment or send me a tweet :)

Have a great weekend everyone!

Forever 21 spotty dress

Oh how I wish I were still 21... This post however is in collaboration with the brand Forever21, who asked me to style up some of their autumn pieces for a new Season, new Look. Until this week autumn was pretty non-existent for us here in London and I hear warm weather is back on the horizon this weekend *jumps for joy*
I’ve been pushing the no tights club boundaries lately but as an advocate of jumpers and jackets I can't resist wearing them whatever the weather and the forever21 selection is amazing. I also can't believe how affordable they are, i'm adding this to my list next. Definitely during this transitional time, it's great updating pieces and this look will work perfectly with winter woolies and tights also.

I love a slouchy oversized jacket and you’ll most definitely see me wearing one most of the day, even inside. Perfect Autumnal colours, just check out these brights. My new motto, winter doesn’t need to be dull to match the weather.

Here's hoping it's here to stay :)

Winter is finally here. Who stepped outside this morning and immediately regretted their choice of clothing? Burrrrrrr
Thankfully had had this lovely bright blue ASOS coat on hand to keep me cosy on the commute.

I love bold colours but perhaps not brave enough to wear the likes of this blue coat with an equally bright primary colour like red. So attempting a softer take on the ‘Colour Block’ trend here, pairing more muted tones and a metallic shoe.

I’ve went for a grey marl Jack Wills sweatshirt and tailored Topshop trousers. Then check out the best shoes ever from Next – yes NEXT. Can’t hype these amazing silver shoes enough! What do you guys think?

Well I best get some beauty sleep as tomorrow night is the Cosmo Blog awards 2014!! Ek….. Stayed tuned to my instagram for all the news and excitement. Thanks again everyone who voted and got my little blog nominated :)
