Warehouse #UrbanGardenParty

 Dress - Warehouse
Jacket - Mango
Rucksack - Urban Outfitters
Raybans - Sunglasses Shop
Boots - boohoo

It feels like I've been waiting forever for a bit of sunshine, and last weekend it finally came out enough for me to take these sunny outfit photos! Who'd have thought I'd be wearing bare legs in March, eh? 

This gorgeous dress is from Warehouse's new occasionwear collection. I'm heading to their #UrbanGardenParty event in their Manchester store tomorrow and I can't wait to check out the rest of their new range. They are holding events all round the country so check out the list here to see if there's one near you! I couldn't resist choosing this lace beauty from the new collection; I love that dressed-down dressy look you get when pairing a pretty dress with some leather and this one's perfect for channeling those seventies vibes that I just can't enough of right now! With boots, a fedora and rucksack it's definitely a look that I'll be wearing much more of now the sun's out!

Let me know if you're heading to the Warehouse event in Manchester tomorrow, or check out more details here to sign up for an in-store event near you.

Seventies Vibes

Jacket - Vintage
Top - Topshop
Boots - boohoo
Raybans - Sunglasses Shop
Necklace - Azuni

So I think it's pretty safe to say that I am obsessed with all things seventies right now. I've always been a fan of vintage, and while I don't spend quite as much time browsing in charity shops as I used to back in my Uni days, the seventies trend has got me vintage hunting again for the perfect suede/denim/tasselled pieces to add to my wardrobe. This jacket is a pretty good find if I do say so myself - a measly £7 from eBay - and it's perfect for adding a retro vibe to an every day look (I'm thinking Penny Lane in Almost Famous). It's perfect with my new retro-style Raybans too, I can already tell I'll be wearing these all Summer!

Bomber jacket and converse.

Jacket - Vintage
Jumper - boohoo
Rucksack - New Look
Converse - JD Sports

Last week I decided to do something about the "no time to blog when I work all week" predicament and took some sneaky snaps in an empty corner of the office when I had a free moment, so there will be some workwear style heading your way for the next few posts! This look was on a day when I was feeling particularly retro-sporty (and wanted to wear my shiny new white leather converse, obv). I haven't worn this bomber jacket for ages, but I thought it was pretty perfect to channel the retro vibe that's flooding into fashion right now. I love this casual look, it's perfect for one of those "don't know what to wear days" and very comfy when you spend as much time running up and down stairs at work as I do!

LFW February 2015

This post has been a long time coming, but better late than never....right?! It seems like a lifetime sine London Fashion Week already and yet it's only been a few weeks! I went with Alex for the weekend and we had a great (if a bit tiring) time. We had travelled down for work, but we managed to jam-pack as much in as possible - from people-watching at PPQ to street-styling at Somerset House to delicious sushi at Murakami which just so happened to be down the road from our hotel! Not forgetting our actual work which included shooting with the gorgeous Sonya Esman around Somerset House for the day - check out the boohoo video here.

We stayed at The Hub hotel which is a new opening by Premier Inn on St Martin's Lane. It's a cool new-look hotel with a swish compact design and tech-y features like smart TVs in each room which can be controlled by an app on your phone, and touch screen panels to control the lighting and aircon from the comfort of your bed. The beds were super comfy too (even in a single bed I had a great night's sleep every night) and the on-the-go pastry breakfasts and costa coffee on tap were much-needed for a weekend of fashion week madness! By far the best feature though was the location, slap bang next to Trafalgar Square - perfect location for restaurant and bar-hopping in Covent Garden and Leicester Square. All in all, it was a great weekend - I'm looking forward to next season already!
