Personal style

All Black

Nick Campbell sunglasses (similar black sunglasses here) John Smedley cashmere jumper (alternative black jumper here), MonDéfilé leather midi skirt (budget option available here), Celine trio bag and Saint Laurent ankle boots (budget options here and here)

Taking the all-black everything mantra rather seriously right here in what is clearly my go-to hue. These pieces have all being seeing the light of day a fair bit lately… I’m pretty sure these Saint Laurent Chelsea boots have rarely left my feet. Nothing wrong with keeping favourites on high rotation!

Perfect for days spent walking around West London with my other half as we try to conquer our London to-do list before we leave for warmer pastures in a couple months.

The Edit

Get the look: Nick Campbell sunglasses (similar black sunglasses here), Equipment blue silk shirt, Cheap Monday jeans (with DIY frayed edges), Larsson & Jennings watch, Proenza Schouler fringed satchel and Yvonne Kone pumps

Fashion need not be serious, amiright?! Which is why this week, I’m engaging in a light-hearted style war featuring a few of this seasons coolest handbags with Reem Kanj of Five Five Fabulous and Harvey Nichols. The challenge (if you can call styling super slick handbags a challenge) was to put my own spin on three delicious styles; a tote, satchel and bucket bag.

This Proenza satchel managed to get me on board with fringing, and now I can’t get enough of the stuff. Give me leather tassels all over. Check out the feature over at Harvey Nichols, where you can vote for your favourite looks (it is a style war after all) right here, here and here.

The Blues

Blue hair by Glasshouse Salon, Nick Campbell sunglasses (similar black sunglasses here), Studio Nicholson top, Larsson & Jennings watch, Topshop neoprene skirt and black Birkenstocks

Taking tonal dressing to the next level with blue hair and of my favourite pieces by Studio Nicholson. Olivia at Glasshouse Salon took me to the blue side recently – it’s always fun to break free my from usual blonde – if only for a short while. After all, dusty blues and navy will always be a good idea.

My appreciation for neoprene skirts continues with this crisp white, voluminous style from Topshop. I’m all about the bold silhouette; which could almost be considered ladylike if it wasn’t for the blue hair and failsafe Birks…

Precious Metal

Nick Campbell sunglasses, A.P.C linen tee, Monica Vinader necklace, bracelet and rings and Topshop neoprene midi skirt

I’ve always had a thing for dainty jewels with minimal embellishments. Over the years I’ve amassed a small collection of whisper-thin rings and simple bracelets and barely-there necklaces.

Monica Vinader manages to tick all off these boxes (which is no mean-feat; I’m more than a little selective when it comes to jewellery). So I’ve joined forces, along with 4 other London based bloggers so celebrate the new Jewel Co-ordinates campaign. Fuss-free, beautifully made jewels with the extra special touch of being able to inscribe whatever you wish. Just my kind of bling.
