O s m a n - S S 1 5









 Don’t get me wrong, I love the Burberry and Topshop Unique shows as much as the next man/woman/child, but London Fashion Week is about some of the less mainstream brands for me. They’re the shows which make my own wardrobe feel extremely unadventurous (read boring) resulting in an inevitable surge of inspiration. So I was excited to see the Osman show and it most certainly did not disappoint. The collection had elements of ‘bohemia’ (quote from Osman himself) but without the excess frills and fuss, instead opting for angular lines and boxy tailoring, which gave his signature draping a truly modern edge. It’s a tie between the off the shoulder jumpsuit and the metallic ensembles for my favourite look, although I did fall a little bit in love with the patchwork looks. Yep, I didn’t expect that either.

STAN


Adidas Stan Smith 

Having well and truly ruined my Nikes (they've turned an irreversible shade of grey which is just not working), I have decided to branch out to Adidas for a change. These Stan Smiths were an impulse purchase, but are now a firm staple in my ever-growing wardrobe. I personally think they're more comfortable than my Nikes, though maybe I'm just blinded by love right now. Pictures of how I've styled them will follow shortly...

BLUSH


Top - Zara, Shorts - H&M, Backpack and Shoes - Primark

And just like that I've fallen in love with pink. I'm not entirely sure where this girly streak has come from (I didn't even know I had it in me) but it emerged during the Zara sale and forced me to buy this candy-toned cropped jumper. I'm not complaining though, as I was in dire need of a couple of lighter, brighter clothes. This backpack was a Primark bargain which, when appropriately styled, doesn't look like the tackiest item on earth. Winner.

As a side note, if any of you are wondering why my skin tone seems to change from week to week, its due to the lighting in the room I shoot in being largely dependent on the weather...hopefully next time I'll be back to looking tanned again.

I will never be able to resist a good sneaker. More accurately, I will never be able to resist a well-timed, if unexpected sneaker. I'm talking about the moment when you expect a flat shoe or a heel at the end of a particularly chic outfit on a passerby, and are instead confronted with the latest Nikes. I love this particular shoot for its nonchalant, minimal approach to the sport trend. And  more importantly, I love the yellow trainers.

WHITE WASH


Top - ASOS, Skirt - H&M, Shoes - New Look, Backpack - New Look

So, I think it's safe to say it's been a while. Just when I was getting into the swing of regular blogging, the life-ruining avalanche (possibly a little over-dramatic) that was my uni work snowballed into my life, and for that reason I took a little (massive) break.

But I'm back! And kicking off with an outfit post. Despite the weather continuing to be horrendous, I'm braving bare legs anyway, which may or may not be a good idea. You might recognize this scuba top from previous posts. Recently, I cropped it to pair with this skirt from H&M and together they have satisfied my all-white cravings. For now. You'd be surprised how hard it is to find two matching shades of white, but these two are a perfect match. Soul-mates, if you like. I am completely and utterly penniless at the moment, but after some serious ebay-ing and with a much needed pay day coming up, I am hoping to squeeze in a little shopping trip. All for the sake of the blog of course...

DISTRESSED

Jeans - Primark, Top - Zara, Shoes - New Look

These jeans were a fiver last year when I found them in the Primark sale (financially, I had reached a pretty low point). They had some interesting looking studs on them, which I ripped off. I then washed them a few times to lighten them up and ripped them apart. One thing I'll say for bad quality jeans is that they rip so easily, and have an almost crispy texture post-washing, making them so easy to distress. I probably won't have these jeans forever but they've lasted almost a year already, which isn't too bad for a £5 spend.

Happy Friday everyone!

Love love love these shots from Lurve. Laidback cool to the max. I love tying things round my waist at the moment, so the last image particularly appeals.
