Weekday & Khaki

Weekday t-shirt / ASOS trousers (similar) / adidas trainers via DROME (sold out)

Hello lovelies. Just a very simple outfit for you featuring another of my favourite colours of the moment, khaki. I think khaki alone makes a statement so I kept it minimal for everything else with a nice v-neck tee I got from Weekday and my white Ultra Boosts.

Jason Markk Premium Shoe Cleaner Review

Jason Markk Premium Shoe Cleaner* (promotional gift set)

I received this shoe cleaning set from a sneaker event a couple of weeks ago, and I've heard good things about Jason Markk so thought I'd give it a go on a few of my trainers and show you the results. Overall I'd say it worked okay but didn't work any better than the time I got an oil stain from my car on my triple white ultra boosts and I used washing up liquid. Which by the way got the stain out perfectly! 

To clean you put some water on your brush, then pour on the cleaning liquid and when you rub on the mark it creates a foam. The foam is effective but I had to use quite a bit of product and rub really hard to get a good foam going. If you have a look at my adidas EQTs below (second picture) you'll see some stains on the toes of the shoe, and then you can see further down (fifth picture) that the stains did come out so that was really good. Taking a look at the comparison photo at the bottom, however, you can see that it wasn't able to get out all of the marks on the midsoles of my Old Skools. So it was more effective on suede than the rubbery material of the Old Skool. 

Check out all of the pictures below and judge for yourself :) I hope this review was helpful, guys.

Boohoo Camel Tie Waist Robe Coat

Boohoo coat / Topshop shirt / Girls On Film culottes via ASOS (sold out) / adidas trainers via Footasylum

Say hello to my new coat! I imagine I'll add a couple more things to my outerwear collection in the next month or two, but this is the first choice. I've wanted something camel, and I've wanted something with a tie waist. Voila, enter this Boohoo coat. Even though it's getting cooler I'm not ready to ditch my culottes, and I like how they stop just below the coat. I went for everything else in black bar the white shirt, because I'm a big fan of black, white and one colour. Anyway you really can't go wrong with a basic white shirt. 

The coat is a lot lighter than a winter coat, but thicker than a duster. I'd say in very cold weather to definitely layer up with it and wear long sleeves underneath.

Weekday Silk Shirt & Cropped Trousers

Weekday silk t-shirt (sale) / Weekday cropped trousers via ASOS (sale) / ASOS loafers

Coming to you with a slightly Weekday heavy outfit, but I have a new found love for Weekday and I'm having to physically stop myself from going on the website daily. This outfit is kind of an ode to summer with the longer length soft pink silk t-shirt and the silky soft cropped navy trousers. Usually I'd pick Stan Smiths to team with this kind of tailored outfit but I've been neglecting my loafers too much. I also have a new found love for pink and blue (I wore similar shades in this post as well). Also I have an issue with this top because sometimes you can see my bra a little bit so got to keep that in mind.

Hope you like this outfit!

HRH Collection Jewellery Review

Hey guys. I did a little (I say little, quite in depth) review of two pieces that I bought from HRH Collection. Alex is a pretty well known YouTuber and the woman behind the brand. I love her channel and her pieces, so I was very excited about getting them. Check out my video if you want the ins-and-outs of my thoughts on the bracelet and choker I bought, and to see them up close!

#FFAWDressUp : AW15 Styling With Farfetch Dresses

Martine Jarlgaard sleeve detail sweater dress
Lanvin sculpted trench coat
Givenchy medium 'Antigona' tote
Givenchy fringed brogues
Burberry Brit giant check scarf

So Farfetch invited me to style up a designer dress for AW15, and whilst I usually don't participate in stuff like this, I thought it would actually be quite a nice piece for my blog seeing as I haven't done a wish-list/inspo piece for a while. 

Autumn/winter is definitely my favourite half of the year. I much prefer layering in cold weather to sweating in next-to-nothing. I'll straight up admit I can't afford these pieces I've selected but it was fun to have a browse and pick out essentially a dream AW15 outfit for myself featuring a designer dress.

The Martine Jarlgaard one I picked is just... *heart eyes emoji*. Everything I'd want in a dress. Oversized but short, and with long sleeves so perfect for the cold. I love the greyish beige colour. I decided to just go all out with beige/cream tones so selected a gorgeous trench coat to go over the top, a Burberry scarf to keep your neck warm (a scarf which I obv expect to own one day), and a pair of Givenchy brogues because they're very on-trend and break up the colour palette a bit. The outfit is finished off with pretty much the perfect tote. To winterise the outfit even more I'd probably just add a pair of thick black tights!  

Hope you like this style inspo piece. To browse Farfetch's other designer dresses click here.

adidas Originals Arc Flock Tee

adidas t-shirt via Size? / Topshop jeans (similar) / adidas trainers via Footasylum

Heyyy guys, I'm gonna quickly talk about this outfit 'cause I'm lying in bed writing this and bladdy el I'm tired. Thank God it's Friday tomorrow (well, today, as you read this). I've had my eye on this top for ages and kind of thought I'd never actually buy it, but I was in Size? and it was just there staring at me and I found myself ordering it. I'm not gonna lie, red is not a colour I usually go for and it is quite difficult to style, but I figured some blue mom jeans were an easy choice. Another thing I'd style the top with is my black tailored trousers from h&m that you might've seen in other posts. I'm gonna keep experimenting with it and just see how it styles, but for now I just wanted to do a super quick post so that you could see the t-shirt!

Topshop Crop & Zara Wide Leg

Topshop ribbed top / Zara wide leg trousers (similar) / adidas trainers via Footasylum

Ahh finally a new post. I will sort myself out soon paha. Terrible blogging skills, and someone explain why my walls don't look as white as usual because Idk! I think I took these too late in the day and that's why. Let's get onto the outfit anyway. 

Another day and another item of clothing that's salmon. My love for pastel pink knows no bounds. And I'm finally showing you my wide leg Zara trousers eeeeee. I am so happy I picked these up, and they were only £20.

I went for the crop with the trousers because I think the tight fit offsets the wide leg so it all looks very flattering. I also think these two colours go well together.

Hope you like this outfit!
