ASOS PAY DAY WISH LIST


 
 
 
If you know me or follow my blog, it will be no surprise to you that the first place I visit on payday is Asos. Scanning through my saved list to pick which treats will brighten my door way this week. If I had my way it would be all these delights, but I have gone and ordered the long line tee (which also comes in black) and that gorgeous striped skirt, which I saw in the Asos mag and hurriedly tracked down. I'm very very temped by the Warehouse skirt as well, even more so after seeing it on the very gorgeous Hannah Crosskey from A Fashion Fix.  Although, I think it might be out of stock in my size, which could be a blessing is disguise for old banky bankerson.
No doubt there will be an outfit post of my purchases to follow soon!

ASOS HANDMADE





 
Forget about Prada,  Miu Miu and D&G, when it comes to sunnies one of my very favourite brands is the Asos Handmade range. If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen numerous appearances from my bad boys, and I'm so in love with them that I'm really temped to purchase another cheeky pair. They just tick all my boxes; oversized, chunky and tortoise shell... what's not to love! They also look and feel so much more expensive than they are, they really could pass for a £200 designer pair.
So the moral of this post, is I strongly advise you invest in a pair for Spring/Summer.

SECONDTHREAD

 

 


 
 

 

 
 
If you haven't already checked out Second Thread  then tomorrow, when their Spring collection launches, is the day to do so!
 I was lucky enough to have a sneaky peak at the range, and amongst all the gorgeous pieces I picked out this tailored jumpsuit. It is just the sort of thing I've been after for ages and it ticks all my boxes. It's a perfect staple piece for the utility trend (complete with d-ring) mixed with chic and feminine details in the form of a strapless top and nipped in silhouette. 
This is the sort of thing I would be likely to wear on a night out. I'm not much of a dress/skirt person, so pairing this beauty with my suede fringed jacket and some black barely there sandals is definitely more up my street.

If you would also like to have a peak at what's to come tomorrow, and all the rest of the Second Thread goings on, then you can follow them on Insagram @secondthreadoffical

COACHELLA WHAT?



So while my Instagram feed is flooded with fringed garments, skinny brown legs and palm trees I have been on a mini break to Center Parcs, where it was more pine cones, native British birds and copious amounts of Prosecco... but honestly, it could not have been more what I needed. To say I have been stressed lately is an understatement, I'm talking stomach cramps and tears. Nasty. So spending a long weekend away eating, drinking (a lot) and laughing in the sunshine with my loved ones has really done me the world of good.
Who needs Coachella hey?

A TOUCH OF THE POCAHONTAS

 



 
 
 
I went for a cheeky little shop the other day and was wandering round Zara feeling very uninspired, which is not like me at all. Usually I get in that store door and am all over that shiz.
Then it happened.
 I spotted this little delight hiding in the corner. It's not really very me at all to be honest, I mean it's not grey for a start, but I was immediately drawn to it. I practically ran to the fitting rooms with the hanger clutched in my hand as though someone was going to approach me and steal it. Why do we do that? Or is it just me? Anyway, I loved it even more on and it is now mine all mine. I can't wait to wear it in the summer to, I think it'll look a dream over a pair on vintage levis. What a treasure.

ASOS SALE PICKS



 
So the other day I was going about my business, when I got the glorious email. Asos sale had begun.
Ironically, I hurriedly went on the website, and ending up buying all non sale items. Fail.
These are some of my sale picks though, which I'm very tempted by! I'm in love with that duster, but have one very similar so just cannot justify an almost identical one... although it does come in other colours. Hmm decisions decisions.

SPRING MINK


 
 
 
I love this Glamorous.com mink trench coat & it's so perfect for the time of year. I feel as though I need to be putting my woollen coats to one side, and this is a great lighter alternative. I did try and pull it off a few times in the winter, but it was definitely a case of style over substance... I was freeeezing! I remember one damp December evening I wore it to get the bus to my boyfriends house, and I literally was wrapping it round me so tight whilst chattering my teeth, but now I can wear it with a smile on my face. Hoorah!

APRIL WISH LIST




 
 
I've never been much of a pink girl, but it appears I have developed a penchant for blush pink. There's just something I love about dusty pink & light elephant grey with a dash of gold... & a Hannah Beth Fincham denim jacket is the obvious choice for me to top off this outfit perfectly.
I want it all.

VALENTINO FALL '15 ILLUSTRATIONS






 

If you follow me on Instagram or read my blog often, you will probably know I am also a fashion and bridal illustrator. Fashion week seems like 6 months ago now, but I thought I'd share with you a couple of illustrations from one of my favourite collections at the Paris shows; the Valentino Fall 2015  collection. It had it all for me, monochrome checks mixed with stripes, embellishment &  thick culottes teamed with high necks. From an illustration point of view, I love anything that creates an interesting silhouette, so when I spotted these gorgeous layered organza dresses I couldn't wait to illustrate them. Plus is shows off my gorgeous girls insane legs. #jealous
 
To have a ganders at a few more of my illustrations while my website  it still being developed, you can check out my Facebook page or Instagram feed.
