90's Spring Red Floral Tea-Dress

I bought this gorgeous red and white floral tea dress at the end of last summer in the Topshop sale and have had it hanging in my wardrobe since, so I was so excited to wear it as soon as I heard that we would be getting a wave of warmer weather. I was inspired by the chic relaxed vintage styles seen on Chronicles of Her and Reformation. I also have been loving the small sunglasses trend for years but the huge spring-summer trend of them has definitely reignited my love for them. Another massive trend for spring/summer that I have always liked but never felt like it was my style, is the western trend. I like how the white leather jacket subtly nods to the trend without being too obvious. The gold layered jewellery has become a staple for me, now, and I paired the outfit with Stan Smiths for a playful 80's/90's casual feel.

Styling A Blazer For SS18 – Casual Off-Duty (+ Current Spring Favourites)

Firstly, I LOVE how these photos turned out - I love the use of natural lighting (I hardly had to touch these photos up) and the wall of greenery as a backdrop. This outfit is a more casual, relaxed version of this one that I posted a week ago.

Cinderella-Blue Lace and Silver Evening Look

This was the outfit I wore for my 18th birthday party (dinner and cocktails). I wanted to look preppy, sophisticated and conservatively 'put-together' - à la Blair Waldorf and Fallon Carrington - while still looking glitzy, glam and modern.

Brown Faux Snakeskin Boots + Blazer Look | Spring ‘18

This was my 'birthday look'. I love: the checked blazer (a HUGE trend this season, which I also talked about in this post), the brown faux snakeskin boots, the 60's inspired velvet black headband (just a craft-store ribbon which I have lately been loving pinning underneath my hair to look like a very vintage mod-style headband - also a giant trend this season), the 70's inspired Etro sunglasses (a gorgeous birthday gift), the contrast of the preppy upper-half with the faux leather trousers to add a modern feel to the outfit.

Inspired by London – Androgynous Street Style

Romantic 80’s Inspired | Pink Satin + TREND Checked Blazer

Much like the famous 'The Devil Wears Prada' scene, as checks and tailoring were selected and designed for the runways; both trends have now begun to filter down into the department stores and high-street. The high-street, especially, has seen a huge influx of checked blazers so the options are endless! I have been wanting a blazer for years now - after being endlessly inspired by Lizzy Hadfield (Shot From The Street) - but was always too picky with minor details to buy one. I found this gorgeous blazer in Zara - brown shades with black and reddish-chestnut running through, structured shoulders, faux double-breasted. I love the 70's/80's feel of the blazer depending on what accessories it is paired with - meaning that it will be the perfect addition to my AW18 wardrobe, to wear with the huge 70's and 80's trends seen on the AW18 catwalks this February. 

I've been wearing this blazer mostly just with jeans, sneakers and a basic t-shirt, to really let the blazer have centre stage. With this outfit, I wanted to look a bit more 'put together' and so contrasted the androgynous blazer and long straight leg jeans with a pink satin-type frilly blouse. I also layered gold necklaces and added a dusky gold bag to emphasise the romantic daytime feel. I also think a headband would look amazing with this outfit - inspired by 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' or 'Nancy Drew'.
