Squint and I’m at some cool garden party networking brunch, but in reality i’m in my grandma’s garden. She’s got such green fingers her garden looks amazing all year round.
I’m feeling this look so much, worn for my mums birthday to just communicate that she means more to me then me wearing my usual boring uniform. When your mum has a birthday, you pull the stops out you make an effort. Show your appreciation through your outfit choice. If you saw in my Insta stores I wore this look to Stewarts Garden Centre then Networking (it’s the outfit for every occasion) It’s the versatile outfit of the season, you saw it here first ( kidding).
This look was such a talking point at the networking even i went to, that someone said I made their day by wearing it. When you are self employed you can wear what you like, you can break the mould of suits and corporate wear.

Frolicking in a field v.s. freezing in the snow. I wanted to shoot this top for so long. I took it to Paris but never wore it. So in a free moment with Hayden we went and shot in a field somewhere. Then it snowed and I couldn’t pass up the chance to wear it in the snow.
How to wear an evening look during the day.
The easiest way to wear an evening look during the day is trainers. Simple mono chrome, tonal trainers/sneakers. Mine are Converse* from Footway, They have faired so well and look amazing still and are the easiest shoes to clean. And nude lips as soon as you whack a lip on it’s a completely different look.
Just by adding come key elements you can change the look completely. Add a luxurious coat. Thins heavily one is a vintage inspired one from M&S and is so versatile. It’s not a classic trench but more a 70’s hair band style coat.
Accessories to add to make this look an evening looks is a small handbag. This Folli Follie one is perfect, fits just the essentials and adds that pop of colour. Purple is a big colour this season. Jewellery is always a safer bet in the evening. Go for gold for a classic look or silver to be more modern.

Just arrived back from Paris and couldn’t wait to show you all the photos I took. This is the look I wore to Premiere Vision on Thursday. I spilt breakfast down my shirt 10 mins after putting it on, what are you going to do?
I wanted to dress smart because it was my professional day going to Premiere Vision so I picked a monochrome look and this Top Shop coat for the pop of colour and excitement. Hair was in Plaits because Paris was so windy and it was much easier to just tie it up. Tie the plaits together for a twist on the classic look.
There will be more Paris posts coming your way soon, so hold on for them. I can’t wait to go back. Hayden and I are thinking in Summer and go to Versailles too.

Do you guys know about footway yet?
I am so excited to talk about these Converse with you. Footway contacted me and asked if I wanted to be sent a pair of shoes to review. Of course I said yes. I had never heard of Footway before but I can see myself shopping on their site again.
Footway present the different types of shoes you can pick in a visual table. Black silhouetted shoes are lined in rows for ease of navigating to the shoes of your dreams.
I knew right away that I wanted trainers and looked through so many options. These mesh leather parchment Converse are a god send. It snowed the day before these photos were taken and I was worried my feet would get cold, but my feet wear toasty warm.

Dungarees have been in every store these past few years. Each season brings a new twist to the game. I’m really into this trend but did’t want to look like every Bert and Harry walking down the street in dungarees so I scooped up this little gem from a vintage kilo sale.
A denim pinafore.
If you’ve not been to a kilo sale you have to go, you pay by the weight of the item and come away with something no one else has. They are the perfect way of sprucing your wardrobe without hitting the bank to hard.
I went full 90’s mixing the denim pinafore with a striped t-shirt, trainers and colourful sport socks. The a-line dress with the pockets is so 90’s and the little strap on the side.

Taken in and around Bournemouth Gardens.
Have you guys been on the Bournemouth Wheel yet? the views are spectacular.
3pm stroll around Southampton old town and Ocean Village. We hunted out Jane Austen monuments and tudor architecture.
Also this Zara Donald Duck jumper is toasty warm and, what’s life without a little whimsy? (name that quote) The uni uniform is jeans, denim jacket and interchangeable tops. The same jacket as before because it doesn’t help that I left my other coats back at home, so will have to brave the cold until my return. Southampton is right on the water so there is no protection from the wind.

Sound Clash 2016 – Somerley House Hampshire
Soundclash is the last event of freshers, I’m not really into the type of music that was played. But it was the last event of freshers so it seamed right to send freshers off with a bang.
Considering I’m not really a fan of club music I did watch a few sets and really enjoy them. I enjoyed Marvin Humes, Artful Dodger. I really came to see the Wilkinson set and Pendulum do a DJ set, they were the highlights for me.
There was a retro/cheesy tunes tent which i flocked to after a while as did most people, there is only so much bass you ears can take at one time.

Over sized T’s and cropped trackies are my go to uniform when I’ve finished work. I’d happily walk out onto the street wearing this Gap pair. The added details make them just that little bit special. Stopping short of the ankle is perfect for wearing converse, I love wearing mine.
Feeling sassy!How ‘fancy’ is my back garden with an oil drum in the back.
At home there is totally no need for me to do my hair ( accurate representation of me life) guys honestly my hair isn’t orange IRL
