Product of the week – Raincoats

13 Oct

Topshop

Leeds is rainy, cold and windy… hence, I’m not a happy bunny up here today. The rain however led me to this product of the week! Pastels still look super cute coming into winter and this jacket is perfect for the weather right now.

Topshop – £55.00

For the FellaElvine

My favourite raincoat for guys is the Elvine – Grundens collaboration mac. A slightly more expensive choice, but this classic jacket is 100% wind and waterproof! The mac is available in more colours and also in womenswear!

Elvine – £120.00

Flower Power

12 Oct

DSC_0605I purchased this jumpsuit during the summer and I literally wore it every week! The all in one attire means you don’t have to spend time piecing together an outfit when you’re running late on morning! You can literally just throw it on and walla (voila)! Safe to say due to my morning routine… I wore a lot of jumpsuits! I shot it here with trainers and heels. Trainers I would wear to work and heels on a night out or for dinner etc. VERSATILE!

DSC_0618I’m going to be slipping black long sleeve tops under all my jumpsuits so I can keep wearing them this winter! There’s no reason to not take your summer pieces through to winter if you still like them, just add more layers!

Flower powerJust a quick one today, but I’ve finally settled back into university life now so will be able to get back into posting!

Happy Sunday!

For Autumn this year I think my favourite thing is going to be roll necks! I love how they keep you warm, cosy and the fact that they can be layered. I’ve also been wearing them with shorts as the weather has been so in-between sun and clouds lately!

I love the clean lines and sleekness of this top and you’ll definitely be seeing it in a lot more posts in different combos!

When in H&M I also tried on lots of pieces from their new Studio collection, which I would definitely recommend checking out as there are some lovely premium looking garments!

Shorts – Zara

Roll Neck – H&M

Festival Hippy

27 Aug

Last month I went to Womad festival!  Some call it a ‘hippy festival’ and I have to say after my first visit there I definitely got that vibe. I don’t think I’ve actually seen so many hippy families in one space at one time!

Channelling my inner bohemian, I chose to wear a lace dress from a brand called RE:NAMED with black high waisted shorts and a lace crop top. I’m still into this whole sheer thing and the weather was perfect for this dress! I also wore gold sandals, a chunky necklace and left my black hat in the tent… #ForgetfulPerson

I styled my hair into loose braids and got dot happy above my eyebrows with blue eyeliner for makeup!

DSC_0303Going all out on the hippy style was Mariette in her amazing vintage charity shop find!

DSC_0239Womad festival is a world music festival, so there were a huge variety of artists, bands and events. In all honesty I hadn’t heard of many of the acts… but that was kind of the beauty of this festival as I had an amazing time strolling around and discovering new artists. It was a nice change from running around and following a timetable, trying to get to every different stage! Instead, it was chilled and fun!

The amazing flags in these pictures are one of Womad’s signature statements and are designed by Flag Maker Angus Watt. Interesting career path  if anyone fancies it?

DSC_0243One of my favourite acts was ‘JusNow’  so make sure you check them out! Their style is a fusion of traditional Caribbean rhythm and culture, combined with the sub heavy sound of the Bristol/UK Underground. Yes one of the producers is from my hometown!

As we were at the festival as press we got to meet the acts and these guys were a blast!

PEACE!
