JW Wishlist.

It’s been a while since I’ve shopped at Jack Wills, but after having a quick nosy on their site the other day, I’ve seen it’s time to end my self-imposed JW hiatus because (like always) they have loads of great stuff that’s made their way to onto my wishlist. Check them out below.

Music Style Icon Inspired

I love when two of my favourite things come together to create something great, which in this case would be fashion and music. Online luxury retailer Farfetch, is the first brand to integrate Apple Music into its app, iOS and website to create a more enjoyable shopping experience. To celebrate this new partnership and their two new playlists, Farfetch asked bloggers to recreate outfits inspired by music style icons.

I’ve been a big fan of the double denim look aka the Canadian suit for longer than I can remember (probably ever since Britney and Justin’s now infamous music award outfit), and it’s one of my favourite looks to rock, so when I saw a picture of Rihanna having a double denim moment, I knew exactly what kind of outfit I wanted to create.

     

Instead of the traditional denim fabric, but still wanting to keep that essence of texture denim has, I chose a light blue floral lace shirt from Nº21 and paired it with a pair of similar colour jeans. The lace puts a twist on the classic double denim look, but still looks chic and easy to wear.

Beaver Chic.

Who doesn’t love a black, fluffy, oversized gilet? It goes perfectly with everything, looks fab and is less commitment than a jacket.

I loved how the gilet finished off this casual look, and like I mentioned above, it’s less commitment than a coat so I didn’t feel too constricted with my jumper underneath.

Gilet: Sheinside; Scarf: H&M; Sneakers: Superga

As summer approaches, it’s getting harder and harder to wear this gilet without sweating to death… or worse, feeling that wet patch under my pits (you know what I’m talking about #tmi), so while we’re in this Spring/limbo weather we’ve been having, I’m making the most of rocking this gilet while I can.

Red Jumbo Cardigan.

When my sister brought this cardigan home for the first time, I knew it was an item I was going to get my share of wears out of and it didn’t take long for it to find itself amongst my possessions. If you can’t tell from the pictures, it’s cosy and chunky and thick and beautiful. Around the time these pictures were taken, although it was warm enough to go without a coat or jacket, it was still cold enough for you to freeze if you went out without mildly thick sleeves – don’t you just hate that kind of weather? – so I was in need of something long sleeved and warm to go over my dress.

Even though I’m not really a fan of wearing black with other colours, I made an exception with this outfit because I loved the cardigan so much.

Jack Wills Girl.

Wow it’s been such a long time since I’ve written a post like this. I wore this outfit a few weeks ago when I met up with some friends and tried Five Guys for the first time – and let me tell you now it was the greatest food experience of my whole entire life and I wish I had taken pictures so that I could have shared them on here and gushed about how great Five Guys is… but alas, I guess I’ll have to keep that for another time…

Anyway back to the outfit. My brother bought me this sweater a while back and I’ve been loving wearing it both in and outside of the house. If you know me well enough you’ll know how obsessed much I LOVE LOVE LOVE all things Jack Wills and can’t step foot into a store without buying everything in sight. It’s really cute and comfy and goes just as well with my Nike shorts as it does with a pair of ripped jeans.

And once again I took this pictures on my way to meet my friend, to see what I looked like as I didn’t have enough time to check myself out in the mirror before I left the house.

Olivia’s Casual Fur.

Just when I was saying how Olivia hadn’t appeared on the blog in a while I’m posting two posts in the space of five days. I really wasn’t planning on blogging anything today, but when I saw these pics of Olivia I knew I’d be doing myself a disservice by not sharing. By now we’re all more than aware of how much I look up to OP in terms of her style, so I won’t fawn all over these pics say too much, and will simply just leave the pictures below for you guys.

Style queen: The unusual garment resembled a typical beige fleece across the shoulders and arms, before transitioning to fur around the bust in a bandeau style   Furry nice: Olivia Palermo, 30, put on an eye-catching display as she stepped out in Tribeca, New York, in a lavish fur coat on Sunday

Smart casual: The American beauty kept the remainder of her outfit casual, with some skinny torn jeans and khaki kicks

Part of me is thinking of turning this into an Olivia Palermo style/ Sunday Soundtrack blog but I’m not too sure so we’ll have to wait and see.

OP Denim Dream.

It’s been a long time since Olivia (or anyone for that matter) has graced the blog, but when I saw these pictures of OP at the Kate Spade pop-up shop opening, I just had to share it.

At the double: She seemed to be positively relishing the chance of playing fashion Russian roulette with her denim-heavy ensemble            At the double: She seemed to be positively relishing the chance of playing fashion Russian roulette with her denim-heavy ensemble

One the button: The saucy stunner left her shirt tantalisingly unbuttoned at the top

I love how effortlessly cool and chic Olivia looks in this outfit, from her jazzy embellished jacket to her perfectly distressed skinnies, all the way down to her pink pumps and cutesy bag. Doesn’t she just epitomize the art of casual dressing with an upscale twist?

Olivia will forever be one of my style icons. Happy Wednesday.
