Fringe Benefits

Currently loving these Fringe OTK boots

Hello Dearies

So it’s freezing cold over here in London these days and its a bit drafty in my studio but your girl is still trying to look good and put together, so I’ve taken to rocking over the knee boots with midi pencil skirts. Apart from the fact that the combination is really warm, it also look very good and stylish so I’m not complaining. I know that the normal tendency with OTK boots is to show them all the way off, but I’m not really a huge fan of the skinny jeans tucked into boots look, in fact, I don’t even own a pair of skinny jeans,not a fan, and it’s too cold to be putting these thighs on display so here is the alternative, which I personally love.

Classic

Black and white is King

Welcome to a new week my loves. So for all my love of bold prints and colours, the classic black and white colour combo remains dear to my heart. I will rock a bold colourful look any day, as you guys know but I do also love me a classic black and white look. I feel like its a great background to pile on all the personality you want, and it’ll never go out of style so really, what’s not to like. Actually, my office decor is mainly back and white. you’ll have seen sneak peeks if you follow me on instagram.

Cos I’m wearing a shift dress and I can’t think of a title

Hey Lovelies,

Hope you are all doing well and having a great summer so far. I am back with another simple look that I totally enjoyed rocking. On a sunny day in England, I got to rock this simple but gorgeous dress that I designed. I wanted the look to be simple but have a fun element so I decided to pair it with a pair of pink chunky platforms to quirk it up. These platforms are super comfortable and I was very free to move about and do as I needed to that day. I do love a good comfortable outfit, and it seems these days, you can’t have a good well put together outfit that is also comfortable but I refuse to accept an either or situation. I’ll have it both ways please.

Summer Casj

Sun’s out and style’s laidback

Hello lovelies,

Hope this summer has been good to you so far. We are having some really great weather here in the UK lately. it comes and goes but when it comes, it comes really hard, and I for one have been enjoying running around when the sun’s out. Unfortunately, with my schedule nowadays, I can’t really dress up much. So my new uniform is print bottoms and t-shirts. I really am trying to dress up but does anybody else get serious style fatigue when it gets hot? Or is that just me? Anyway, here’s me doing extremely easy summer style.
