Street Style- My Friends

Today’s blog post is a bit of a different one. For the past week I’ve been taking pictures of my friend’s outfits for a street style feature. I’m going to try and make this a regular thing so stay tuned for more posts like this. I hope you are inspired by my friend’s style- Enjoy!

Outfit 2- Rachel

Rachel has got the oversized trend en-pointe by wearing this grey marl jumper (borrowed from her Dad) over Topshop blue skinny jeans. Adidas burgundy trainers add a pop of colour and I love her angel wing earrings!

Here’s Rachel again with another great outfit. The main element of this look is her amazing leather bomber jacket with shearling detail. Style it with black jeans, boots and textured jumper like Rachel has done!

Outfit 4- Charlotte

Charlotte is wearing this gorgeous Zara cape jacket in an oatmeal shade with brushed wool feel and fur collar. She lets the cape do the talking and pairs it with black long sleeve top, thick leggings and black patent boots.

Outfit 5- Katie

Katie is wearing a grey v-neck jumper and white skinny jeans with a muted floral pattern. I love the soft colour palette and the baggy jumper works well with skinny jeans.

Vanity Studios Photoshoot

Last weekend, I did a photoshoot with my sister at Vanity Studios, just off Oxford Street in London. We had our hair, makeup and nails done and got all glammed up for the shoot. I absolutely loved my makeup and I wish that I could re-create it to a similar standard! I thought I’d share the photos from the shoot of my sister and I- hope you like!

Style icon Series- Jean Shrimpton

I have decided to start a series where I share some of my top style icons and then I will try and create a look in response to their style, including makeup, hair and clothing. Jean Shrimpton was an icon of Swinging London in the Sixties and one of the world’s first supermodels. Jean was photographer David Bailey’s muse and his initial photoshoot of her jet-setted her career – she is said to have ‘The face of the Sixties’, representing the youthquake of the decade.

  • Hair- Voluminous hair with side fringe
  • Makeup- Wide doe eyes, arched brows and pouty lips
  • Fashion- 60’s style- mini skirts, shift dresses, op art etc.

My Jean Shrimpton Look

For my Jean Shrimpton look I have put my hair up into a beehive hairstyle with side-parting. For makeup I have applied winged eye liner, lots of mascara and nude lips (I would have added some fake eyelashes to this look if I’d have had some). For clothing I wore my Banana Republic monochrome checked top and then I added some vintage silver diamante jewelry. Hope you like!- Enjoy!

NAVY- OOTD

Hey guys! Today’s post is an OOTD featuring 2 navy garments. Navy is a go-to shade for me all year round and I believe it should be approached in the same way as black- wear it all over to create an effortless look. Navy suits me better than black as it’s less harsh against my pale skin tone and it has become my comfort zone shade, especially during winter. I have paired this Topshop textured navy high-neck top with Zara navy wool A-line skirt. Then, I added M&S grey wool tights, Oh My Love burgundy cape, Hobbs burgundy brogues with gold studding and Navy Cambridge Satchel. I believe when wearing the same colour on both top and bottom varying texture is essential in order to add interest to the outfit as a whole. Hope you are all having a good weekend- Enjoy!

A/W Wishlist- High Street Picks

MY A/W wishlist is piling up and the high street brands have really delivered this season- their fabulous collections prove that you can find yourself, for example, a premium looking tailored coat at a not so premium price- everyone has got to love the British high street! I certainly cannot afford everything off this wishlist but I don’t think I can resist grabbing this Zara jumpsuit next time I go shopping! The print and colour palette are divine. Also, I’ve been looking for my perfect jumpsuit for what feels like donkey’s years and at £29.99, I don’t think you can go wrong with this jumpsuit. An extra bonus is that it can be styled for both day and night- a very versatile garment I think! What pieces are on your A/W wishlist?
