NYFW Street Style- My Favourites

Hi Guys! Today I thought I’d share some of my favourite street style looks from NYFW. Street style is great as it allows me to take¬†inspiration and ideas from others, which I can infiltrate into my own outfits and NYFW is the ideal time to get inspired when all the fashionistas flock in impeccable ensembles to the catwalk shows. – Enjoy!

OOTD- Summer in the Countryside

Yesterday, I had a fabulous day with my friend Olivia, catching up and eating lots of yummy food which is becoming a tradition of ours! We made nutella milkshakes, pizza and sweet potato fries and later on we had a lemonade at the local pub with a live band playing and then came back for some delicious homemade courgette cake! I wore these lovely River Island floral shorts, La Redoute navy strapless top, Zara grey cardigan, Office sandals and Miss Selfridge silver coin necklace. I also wore my newly purchased Cambridge Satchel bag but I had left it at the house when I took this picture so I will feature that in another outfit post soon! Hope everyone is having a lovely summer holiday- Enjoy!

Statement Jeweled Necklace

This post features my current favourite jewelry piece which I’m pretty obsessed with at the moment. This collar necklace is a great addition to my summer wardrobe and the various encrusted jewels catch and reflect the sun’s rays wonderfully, making it a fab stand-out piece. I wore it for the first time the other day and received lots of compliments from friends- it certainly has the ‘WOW’ factor! I got this necklace from the shop where I work- Shu Shu, a boutique shop which sells shoes and accessories and they currently have lots of statement collar necklaces in store. In addition, I photographed the necklace on an issue of my dad’s Gardens Illustrated Magazine and I love how the necklace stands out against the bright fuchsia flowers- Hope you like- Enjoy!

OOTD- Floral Palazzo Pants

This is what I wore today and oh my goodness it is so hot in the UK at the moment! The main element of this outfit is these amazing navy floral palazzo pants and you’ll never guess where they are from… Primark- that’s right! They are so flowy and comfy and I paired them with a white off the shoulder crop top from Asos. To accessorize I added Asos orange cross the body bag, Asos pentagon tortoise-shell sunglasses, Accessorize pearl earrings and Fat Face blush suede sandals. I feel like this look has quite a relaxed, boho feel and I think it would be perfect for a festival- Hope you like- Enjoy!

“Paris is always a good idea.”- Audrey Hepburn

Last week, I spent a long weekend in beautiful Paris with my friend Olivia! It was my first ever time in the city and I am now obsessed with the Parisian lifestyle and I absolutely adore the architecture, especially the ornate balconies adorning many buildings along Paris’ streets. I thought I’d do a blog post telling you about some of the things I got up to and to share some of the photos I took during my short stay.

Day 1:

We traveled to Gare du Nord by Eurostar and after a pleasant 2 hours 15 mins journey and a couple of stops on the Metro later we arrived at the Moulin Rouge which was close to our hotel. After settling in, we caught a cute toy-style train to Montmartre and found somewhere to eat. We decided to try the french delicacy of frog’s legs which I have to say were pretty delicious despite the ‘interesting’ slimy texture. After dinner, we had our portraits done- I love mine and definitely think it’s worth doing however I’m not sure if it looks exactly like me though- what do you think? Then, we both delved into our first crepe of the trip- nutella was an excellent choice!

Day 2:

On Saturday, we took a tour bus which was a great way of seeing many of the sights Paris has to offer. We popped into lots of food shops and Boulangerie’s and marveled at the fantastic displays of cakes and pastries. Then we ate lunch at a cafe and had a baguette and chips. After lunch, we visited L’arc de triomphe and the Eiffel Tower and after getting lost we made our way on the Tour Bus to Notre Dame, had a delicious flower shaped icecream and walked to the padlock bridge. That evening we had savory crepes in the Latin Quarter and then took the Metro back to the Eiffel tower. The Eiffel tower was spectacularly illuminated and we embraced our inner child and took a ride on the carousel beside the Eiffel tower. Unfortunately, the heaven’s then opened and I started to regret only having taken suede sandals- not fun!

Day three comprised of more rain showers and shopping on the Champs-elysees. Walking through the puddled streets in the rain meant my sandal situation was at it’s worst, my nude sandals had now turned a dark brown and by the time they were almost dry we were met by another crazy rain storm :(. Getting to the station was quite a stressful experience to say the least, having to get out of a taxi on a street corner due to traffic and sprint to the station. Luckily, we made it around 10 minutes to spare- thank goodness!

Overall, I had an amazing time in Paris filled with delicious food, stunning sights and lots of laughs with Olivia. I would love to go back soon and see more of Paris as a weekend is simply not enough with so much to see in this fab city!

Weekend in London

Last weekend was very eventful and enjoyable, as I went to London 2 days in a row. On Saturday, I went to visit a fashion university in London and it was perfect, the talks and workshop were so inspiring! Sunday was also a great day, I met up with my sister and my cousin Antonia at West Hamstead where she has a flat. After that, we took a walk in the sun to Primrose Hill and stood transfixed on the view of all the monuments of London lined up across the skyline. At a cafe around the corner we all digged into a slice of cheese cake with summer berries! Next door, was a gorgeous Mary Porter’s vintage store and I picked up a really cute monochrome gingham crop top. Overall, a great weekend and here’s a collage of a few pictures, wish I took a picture of my cheesecake put I’d already scoffed it all when I thought to taking a photo. Hope you’re all having a good weekend!
