Springs coming!

The Trainer Issue

Now it's fair to say trainers have made a huge comeback recently. As part of the 'sports lux' craze they have become casual and comfy essentials to many wardrobes. I feel they make any smart outfit look effortless and edgy without looking lazy. Here are a few pairs that I feel paired with dresses, cigarette trousers or skinnies add a youthful and fun look to any emsemble!

-Adidas Classic Black
-New Balance U420 Black

Snakeskin & Mesh

Now normally I absolutely dread summer. I'm not really one to show lots of flesh unless I'm in a bikini on a beach. However I was recently sent this amazing swimwear by @sparklebyhayleiix . 
First of all is this amazing strapless snakeskin zip bikini is perfect for avoiding those awkward tan lines. The snakeskin print is so timeless and adds a really edgy vibe to the classic bikini style. The zip is really practical and makes the bikini really simple. 
Next is this AMAZING contrast mesh swimsuit. This is just the most classic, beautiful swimsuit. The mesh insert in the middle makes it really cool and modern. It's so flattering and reat concers my fear of an over exposed stomach. 
I 100% recommend going to check them out on Instagram to get your amazing quality, classic swimwear with a modern twist!

Current Favourite Trends (Asos)

Here are my favourite trends at the moment that I am wearing and will be purchasing very soon! All pieces are from Asos and are madly affordable considering the quality and design! 

Grid Print
I love love love grid print! It's qwerky yet classic. Fun yet stylish an adds a little something to any all black outfit. I love the twist it can put onto any monochrome outfit.

Cigarette Trousers
Classy, elegant and youthful! Cigarette trousers are the perfect alternative to the standard skinny jeans. As I feel leggings (besides sports leggings) are no longer an acceptable alternative to jeans, I think cigarette trousers with their straight cut and fitted style add a smart yet casual element to any outfit. 

Turtle Neck Jumpers
I think thin, fitted turtle neck tops don't do the whole concept of a turtle neck justice. A chunky, wide fit, thicker turtle neck are much more flattering, appropriate and perfect for a casual, cosy but chilled outfit. However keep the colours neutral to avoid over doing it.

Feather O'Clock

I have recently been really missing some arm candy. Don't get me wrong I love my rings more than anything however having an empty wrist has been on my mind so have been on the look for a black leather watch so go with the rest of my arm jewellery.

Luckily enough I was recently contacted by The Little Jewellery Company who offered to send me a piece of my choice. Having gone through the really hard task of chosing one item out of their beautiful collection, I chose this black leather feather watch. I am so so in love with this watch! It is exactly what I was lookig for and more. The feathers add a really delicate touch, the black leather is so chic and classic and te gold hardware makes it look really expensive and classy. 

Big thank you to The Little Jewellery Company for sending me this beautiful piece that is now an essential part of my hand jewellery. Check them out on their website or on their Instagram  @thelittlejewellerycompany
