Would you believe I’ve had my eyes on this jacket since August?! It’s times like these that I honestly believe in love at first sight because the moment I saw the jacket, I was infatuated and needed it immediately. I very neeeeearly bought it last month but decided £189 was a bit much to spend on the perfect wool biker jacket (what the hell was I thinking??), and even though I regretted not buying it, it wasn’t until I saw an image of a random girl wearing the jacket that I realised to error of my very foolish ways. Though black would seem like the likely choice to get the jacket in, alas it’s the grey version that has irrevocably stolen my heart.
The Christmas sales really couldn’t come soon enough. Fingers crossed this will be in the sale!! – So fashion gods if you can hear me…
The weather may be looking good these days (how great was the weather over the weekend?) but that should distract us from the fact that tomorrow marks the last day of August and that soon the weather will return to its chilly state. To prep for the oncoming cold, I’ve been focusing my shopping efforts on lots of chic and cosy sweaters to wear once summer is done and gone. This season you can expect to find me in skirts, woolly tights and my trusty Supergas!

Just looking at all these beautiful sweaters I can’t wait for autumn to come!
Can we take a moment to appreciate these dreamy Superga sneakers? When I first saw that Superga would have a special collection with online luxury retailer Luisaviaroma, I knew I had to get in on it (especially after missing the Superga and The Row’s collaboration a few years back 😦 ). These special editions come in velvet and canvas options, ribbon laces and a chunky platform. I can’t wait to wear them out!
And I recently spied Superga’s latest collaboration with accessory brand, Charlotte Simone, and the collection looks so cute!
You know those pieces that for some unexplainable reason, the moment you lay eyes on them, something clicks deep within and before you know it you’re forgetting about your work and spending most of the morning looking at pictures online and calculating it’d only take two months to save for the beauty? Just me? Well last week during my morning read of emails and newsletters I came across a feature in Coveteur that mentioned this bag, The DK88, and some unexplainable reason, I found myself falling in love instantly, falling through the rabbit hole of Burberry’s website, completely forgetting about all the work that I had to do. While this bag is not usually one I’d give a second glance, I felt a really strong connection to it and (like I mentioned above) started calculating how long it’d take for me to save up; and (like I mentioned above) realised it’d only take two short months (in fact I realised I’d be able to afford it come August payday). But in the hopes of keeping myself on a leash and not going over the top, I figured that if I posted about the bag here, my obsession would slowly fade. Here’s hoping anyway…

Chic, ladylike, available in lots of great colours – like pink – and oh so wearable, I am in L O V E. Isn’t it a real beauty?
As a strong believer that less is more, it makes perfect sense that I’d be going crazy over my latest net-a-porter finding: Wwake. Based in New York, Wwake is a fine jewellery line focused on delicate, dainty, stackable pieces that look effortless and super chic. But don’t let the simplicity fool you, as its this same simplicity that makes the pieces truly stand out, and is why my wish list is now currently packed with beautiful gems I’ll be saving up for.

While it’s true it’s not every day I’m able to wear a fancy gown… in fact come to think about it, I don’t think I’ve ever worn one, but that doesn’t stop my undying appreciation for a floor-length dress with a bit of character and charm. Though some are not ones that would usually appeal to me (Marchesa I’m looking at you even though I’ve been in love with you gowns for at least over a decade), there’s still something about all of them that I love. Case in point, the gowns below that drew my attention for various reasons.
I guess I’ll have to make do with just looking.
A day late but it doesn’t matter because we celebrate Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen every day.
I can’t wait to see what more great style and fashion they’ll show in the coming years.
