Thigh High Boots

24 Mar

FullSizeRender[3]Olivia Palmero gave me thigh high boot envy this year and after being ridiculously fussy, I finally found a pair I liked! I went for a medium chunky heel in a black suede, so I can wear them casually in the day and more dressed up on the evening. I did also like a few leather styles, but I felt like the suede material was more understated and reduced my fear of me looking like a stripper…

FullSizeRender[2]The oversized jumper is from H&M and is cosiest thing ever. A cream jumper is great for transitioning into spring and I’d go for one in a long length so you can wear it as a jumper dress. To keep warm, I layered with a black long-sleeve basic and slip dress with lace trim.

FullSizeRender[1]I always wear long socks under these boots to give the illusion that they are slightly higher up the thigh.

My handbag is Michael Kors and adds a little pop of the camo trend.

My beloved hat is Primark and I’ve also added a gold earring to the ribbon!

Customised Military Jacket

5 Feb

DSC_0080I know it has been a while! I’m currently in final year at university so life has been a bit hectic!

So this Christmas I was lucky enough to spend my time in Asia and therefore got to indulge in shopping and bargain hunting in Bangkok and Singapore! My favourites places were the little malls where the shops are simply called ‘The 200 Baht shop’ or ‘The 300 Baht Shop’.

(200 Baht works out at about £4!)

DSC_0086I picked up this military style jacket in a store where everything was uniquely customised. I think it would be pretty easy to make one yourself and customise one of your own jackets, as long as you can get your hands on a length of fringing from a fabric shop!


For my take on the military trend I paired the camo jacket with Topshop embellished jeans, a black roll neck, chunky boots and I added a hat purely because it is SO windy!


kaki_militaire_843103271_north_499x_whiteMilitary style and khaki colours are a key winter trend and were seen on the catwalk by Balmain, Calvin Klein and Isabel Marant. When wearing this trend think army uniform with a feminine twist by adding textures of leather and lace.  Finish with a chunky boot for the daytime or a black stiletto for the evening. Below are some of my favourites pieces on the high street at the moment.

Back to the 90’s with Palladium Boots

29 May

Palladium Boots - Olive Loves

Seeing as it’s been raining these past couple of days… I thought it would be a good time to post about my waterproof Palladium Boots! Famous for their signature toecap, Palladium Boots have been producing durable footwear since 1942.

The heritage of the brand was confirmed for me  when my dad saw me wearing mine and commented on how everyone used to have a pair of Palladiums back in the 90’s;  this made think that there could not a better time to be wearing a classic style boot, as this spring/summer it seems to be all about ‘taking it back to the 90’s’!

I wore these boots with my slouchy boyfriend jeans, a white tee and a statement jumper ‘love don’t pay the bills’ from LA brand Dimepiece. It’s all about female independence ladies! Slogan tops are ‘in’ this summer (although I think their always going to be a classic!) and this jumper is great for when it’s still a bit chilly, but I’d say maybe get a statement T-shirt or vest instead as we are having these sunny spells!

Jeans and a classic white T-shirt is a look I love in the summer as it’s so simple. Add trainers or boots and it can be worn casual or add a pair heels and you’ve got chic!

Along with my boots I added a plain black snapback and sunglasses (summer essentials!).  I’d also wear theses boots with shorts and dresses at festivals as they are comfortable, waterproof and also will give me a little bit of extra height in the crowd whilst protecting my toes!

Palladium’s signature boot is their classic Pampa, but suitable for Spring/Summer they also have a range of bright colours available in their Monochrome and Blanc Hi ranges pictured below.

Palladium have also created exciting collaborations, in the past with Pharrell and this year with Tokyo brand Atmos. The Atmos boots actually glow in the dark, so not only will your feet be glowing at festivals this year, you will also have a guide back to your tent in the dark!

I’m excited for summer to be coming and I’m hoping that it lasts until August! More summer outfits posts will be coming soon, so stay tuned!
