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!

Never Under Dressed – STREET STYLE

9 Jan

I got snapped outside the James Long show by Never Under Dressed and was featured on their ‘What the women are wearing at the men’s shows’ page online.

I was wearing my vintage tartan mohair coat which I nabbed at a car boot sale a couple of years ago and knew would come in handy one day! Luckily this Winter it ticked off the tartan trend (one that always seems to come back around) and the mohair trend in one! Never underestimate what you can find at a car boot sale if you are on the vintage hunt!

I was also wearing my Boy London hat which I have customised. Inspired by the Jill Saunders hats, I ordered the netting material online and then sewed on pearls from an old necklace which I no longer wear. I practically live in this hat and frequently get asked where it is from! There’s loads of ways you can customise your own beanies so get creative and see what you come up with!

My T-shirt underneath is Criminal Damage, my trousers are Zara and my boots Topshop. I love the Zara trousers as they feel like leggings but are slightly thicker and have a zip and button, which is great for wearing with tops that finish at the hips. These are now also in the sale online for £17.99!

Streetwear inspired by ‘The Church’ Autumn 2013

20 Aug

Seen on the runway from Alexander McQueen to Valentino one of my favourite trends this season is clothing which has been inspired by ‘The Church’ . The style ranges From Byzantine mosaic prints and religious patterns, to dazzling jewel adornments, mixed with enchanting gold.

Dolce and Gabbana

I love all the midi skirts and dresses covered in this print, along with statement street style t-shirts. Below are two of my favourite t-shirt so far by Illustrated people. They would be great and easy to throw on over leggings, with trainers, an oversized denim jacket and a beanie to give a casual daytime look a quirky twist!

The t-shirt below I bought in Topman in a large and it’s also covered in my favourite…leopard print! ! I’m loving male t-shirts more then women’s at the moment! I love how slouchy they feel!

I thought why not wear this t-shirt on a night out and wore it tucked in black shorts with my Zara studded heels. Apart from the shoes which were killer, the outfit was so comfy! (No sucking in required!)

Sexy, Nude and Studded

Yes I think I’m getting a shoe obsession…I couldn’t resist buying these in the Zara sale!

I love a classic pointed shoe worn with jeans and a t-shirt. The rebel, grunge look is big for Autumn, so I’ll be wearing these to rock up an outfit. Make sure you keep your eye out for some sexy pointed flats too, another Autumn trend!
