Take 10: Timberland

Jacket – Levis (similar), Jumper – c/o Boden, Jeans – c/o Oasis, Shoes – c/o Timberland, Bag – ASOS, Watch & Ring – c/o McArthur Glen

It’s been a while since the last Take 10 collaboration, but we’re back! This time around we were asked to style a pair of Timberland shoes, any of our choosing. Surprisingly, my huuge shoe collection does not include a pair of boat shoes like these, and with the coming (hopefully) warmer weather, I thought it would be the right time to amend that. These are SO comfortable and wearable, if a little on the large side so if you’re in between sizes choose smaller! The rest of the outfit is pretty self-explanatory; my snuggliest and favourite Boden jumper teamed with a new Levi’s jacket in black.

A few more new additions that you might spot in this post are thanks to a super duper fun shopping experience at one of McArthur Glen’s designer outlets! To get sparkling in time for Spring, I chose two accessories that would make a subtle update to an outfit. The watch has diamonds on the face, and goes perfectly with the ring (which also doubles up as a weapon it’s so sharp!). I’ve got a whole heap of new clothes to get through and post up on here, but in the meantime have a peek at my Instagramx

Brighton Getaway: #LoveC4Cactus

Navy suit – ASOS (Jacket & Trousers), Shoes – Adidas via ASOS, Top – River Island, Sunglasses – Vintage

A few weekends ago I was lucky enough to head down to Brighton for a whirlwind 24 hours with friends. The catch? One of us had to drive the new Citroen car which, if you take a look here, you’ll soon realise was no bad thing at all. The drive was one of the best parts of the weekend (especially because these days my driver is my bus route to work!). Having studied at Sussex, coupled with the fact that I hadn’t visited Brighton in several months had me fall for the city all over again; we were nostalgic over everything! We spent the Saturday walking around the lanes, stopping to drool over a Nutella cake, and buying a few vintage pieces from Dirty Harry, before heading back via the beautiful Sussex countryside.

We also stayed in the most boutique of hotels tucked away in Kemp Town, aptly named Snooze! You might have spotted my vintage-chic styled bedroom and top notch breakfast from my Instagram, and just glancing at them now has me wishing I could relive it! I had the kind of weekend that made my face hurt from smiling so much- amidst constant affirmations between my friends that we were ‘SO happy’ with everything- so you can even spot a real tooth-y grin in this post, for once…! x

Thank you to Citroen for the wonderful opportunity, can I go again?! ; )

Winter Whites

Shirt – ASOS, Trousers – c/o Boden, Shoes – Selected via ASOS, Bag – c/o Nica

It seems like forever since my last outfit post, but a lot has happened in that time- and it’s made me just a little bit too busy for my own liking! I’ve started a new job, and as I’m currently only just three weeks in, there’s been so much to take in, and so little time to do so! But I’m so excited by it, and can’t wait to share more with you about it soon.. For now, it’s all about this outfit right here!

I’m already a big fan of Nica, and they recently asked me style up the same bag with a different outfit for a week. Naturally, I jumped at the style challenge! You can spot the other outfits over on my Instagram, but this one was most certainly my favourite. Wearing lighter colours in winter is always a challenge for me, but mixing the all-white trousers with a monochrome shirt made the overall look more subtle and way more wearable (especially for someone whose fave outfit consists of 90% black).

I’ll be trying to make my posts a lot more regular from now on, so watch this space! I’ve got so many bits and pieces to shoot, and I’ve certainly missed shooting them! x
