How i spent my Sunday..

Sundays have always been one of my favorite days of the week.. mainly because you get to be lazy and eat junk food without feeling guilty! Also because London seems a lot more chilled out and calm, and where better to spend my Sunnday than down at the beautiful flower market on Columbia road with my lovely friend Michelle. Fresh flowers and families everywhere, tight little flower stalls all in a row while happy flower lovers fill the streets in search for their perfect bunch of flowers..

 Pictured above, one of the colorful stalls at Columbia Road flower market.

So in the end i went with these Cabbage flowers since i have never seen them before and i have always been attracted to things that are unusual! They literally look like little Cabbages, so cute!

After all the buzz and hype at the Flower market, it was time for some food at a little organic Cafe just off Brick lane, where we indulged in some Sweet potato fries, organic chicken, lettuce and mayo sandwhiches and some fresh mint ice tees..

 And taken it was Sunday i didnt feel guilty about these yummy cream and jam donuts i got in Spitafields market.

Basically this was the perfect Sunday filled with flowers, amazing food, good company and adventures around Brick lane and Shoreditch. I even made a little French Bulldog friend. I hope next Sunday is as beautiful as today was.

London Fashion Week..

So London celebrates fashion this week and i just had to get myself down to Sumerset house to be apart of all the hype and get a taste of Fashion week.
It felt amazing being surrounded by other fashion lovers and getting a preview of what everyone was wearing for inspiration. 

My outfit consisted of faux fur, pleats and taupe..

I basically walked into forever21 (which i dont often do these days) and the first thing i spotted was this skirt, i couldnt believe the quality of it and i absolutely loved the color! I didnt even try it on, i just ran straight to the till! The only thing to remember is that the sizes of these skirts go by inches and not actual uk sizes so you may have to try some on to find the right fit, im wearing 27inch.

The grey Zara jacket with fauz fur hood and sleeves i have been getting a lot of questions about on what size i'm wearing as on their website they only stock a Medium.. Usually i go for the fitted look but i did get a Medium in this and i actually like how its oversized, feels like im wearing a blanket!

Thw boots are from river island, i love the contrast between the taupe and black with double sided zips. I'm a huge fan of boots as i find them to be very comfortable and they edge up any outfit. I'll be wearing these all through winter as they're perfect and not once did my feet hurt walking around all day!

My backpack is a vintage piece by motelrocks, they have a little section on their website for reworked pieces which are one offs! They gifted me this beautiful leather backpack at an event last month and i absulutely adore it!

Overall my experience was lovely and next year i plan to take a trip to NYFW as i am now obsessed with the world of Fashion Week!

Creating glamour and sophistication, effortlessly with fur, keeping it simple with a stunning gilet and some high waisted acid wash jeans.
 For September evenings i would wear a little bralette underneath while the weather is still mild. But you can add so many different layers underneath for the colder months ahead.
These pieces are light and beautiful and will last you forever, definetly worth your money, add to any outfit for an immediate sense of luxury. 

These Topshop acid wash jeans i have been getting a lot of questions about, a lot of you cant find on the topshop website because i have had these for a few months and no longer available, however ive linked in some similiar ones below.

Also want to add how beautiful this hand made brallete is, beautifully stitched floral detail. Handmade to order and also matching items as part of a set.

Hello September..

Goodbye summer, i shall miss all the warm sunny memories and laughter. As we move forward into a new season, the thought of shorter days and more layers of clothing is a little depressing to me as i like to be free. Nothing worse than windswept hair (unless you're Megan Fox) and stepping in puddles..

On the other hand the approach to winter also has its perks, feeling glamorous in faux fur and cute winter coats! I have created an outfit which holds an air of glamour, luxury and feminitiy, my favourite combination...

Recently i have been obsessed with dusters and this Topshop one is going to be my best friend this winter, favourite purchase thus far!! It goes with ANYTHING and looks more expensive than what i paid for it! it has a dark green detachable faux fur collar too which i adore.

I teamed it with this beautiful navy and white skirt from Missguided which fits like a glove. I reccomend sizing down for a better fit, im wearing a size 6. I love the white panel on this as it makes you look slimmer and more toned.

I kepts the whole outfit minimal with one of Topshops famous crop tops in white and some black sandals. Also can i just say how obsessed i am with this see through clutch from SkinnyDipLondon!
