All About Denim

I don’t know about you guys but I am completely in love with the denim trend that has being going around recently. From classic styles to quirky co-ords, I am obsessed. 

Recently, I purchased a classic black oversized denim jacket from Topshops Moto range. 

A denim jacket is perfect for styling with just about anything for any occassion. They are definitely a style staple for anyone’s wardrobe all year round. 

You can find the jacket I am wearing via the link below.

Cameo Rose Co-Ord 

Hey guys, 

I wanted to share my recent sweater and jogger co-ord from the brand Cameo Rose that you can find at certain New Look stores.

As you probably know, the loungewear trend is popular and is perfect to dress up or down and what’s better than being comfy when going out …? 

I decided to dress this striped navy crop sweater and cuffed joggers set with black heels for a casual/smart look. 

You can shop the link to this co-ord via the link below. It is very affordable with the top only retailing at £12.99 and the joggers £15.99.

Kartel: Watches With a Story To Tell 

GUYS I AM BACK!!!

I know it has been months and months since I last wrote up a blog post, life has been busy from moving house, starting new job/s and starting my Fashion Branding course at university (which is amazing) Now I’m back and I want to dedicate a few hours each week into making my blog bigger and better as I have missed it ALOT.

I wanted to talk about the independent Scottish watch brand Kartel in my post this evening as I have collaborated with the brand previously and they have came so far in such a short space of time. 

The brand consists of  timeless and classic watches that all relate to Scottish heritage, which I obviously love, being Scottish and all …. Each of the watches have a Scottish name such as ‘Sinclair’ or ‘Kendrick’ which I thought was quite interesting as it show’s how all of the inspiration has been taken from the creator/s background which relates to the brand as a whole, essentially meaning there is a story behind each of the watches.

As my colour palette tends to consist of black, white, grey, nude (anything with a neutral palette basically) I decided to go for the classic ‘Lewis’ watch that features a white face and black leather strap.

I don’t think I could find a more suited watch for myself!

What I love about Kartel watches is that they are gender neutral and affordable. Can you believe that this watch is only £69!? 

You can also receive engraving services on the watches which is great for a personalised touch.

 A Kartel watch would make the perfect gift for any occasion and you also have the option to build you own watch with a selected face and strap. AMAZING, right?

 

The idea is that you choose what style of watch you like, the dial colour and strap off your choice from the ‘Watch Builder’ option you can find via this link.

There are so many different watch styles that you can choose that can be personal to your own style.

 

If you are still doing your Christmas shopping like me …. then definitely consider a Kartel gift this Christmas. It will not disappoint.

Casual T and Blazer

Hey, 

So recently I’ve been keeping my eye out for staple pieces for the A/W seasons approaching. 

With the sales being on, I was browsing on Topshops clearance and came across a black loose fitted blazer that was exactly what I was looking for… even better it was reduced from £49 to just £10!

I love the gold button details and how you can wear it as a top as it wraps over when it fastens. It also features slits in the sleeve which is a great style detail, perfect if you like accessorising with bracelets and watches that you want to be visible.

There’s still sizes 8,10 and 12 in store so be sure to grab yours quickly. I’ll attach a link below. 


I also fell in love with the Milan T shirt by the brand Tee and Cake in Topshop, it’s so simple yet chic and perfect for dressing up or down. It is definitely a great staple piece, especially for £18.



You can find the link to both items below!

Zaful: Leopard Print Shirt

Hi lovely’s 

Today’s post is about the brand Zaful and their products which I am obsessing over! 

Recently I have collaborated with the brand and got to choose some items and they do not disappoint. The brands clothing, shoes and accessories are so affordable which is perfect for students like myself… if you have a moment you should definitely check out their online website at: 

http://www.zaful.com

I wanted to talk about the leopard print shirt in this post as it is perfect for fall and the style and features are perfect and can be mixed and matched with just about anything … what more could you want? 

I decided to team this shirt with a skirt, tights and boots for a feminine look to contrast with the boxed shirt. It would be a great shirt to pair with jeans and layer with a polo underneath due to the loose fit… I will definitely be doing that since it’s been around 0 degrees here…. 


I love the looseness of the shirt, the style features are so feminine with the V neckline and open shirt collar yet it still has a masculine twist due to the boxed fit and long fastened sleeves. It’s also really soft as it is made from cotton. Usually I find them quite stiff at first until you’ve worn them a few times but this one is super comfy! 

What I loved most was the tailored contrast leopard print pocket which gives the plain shirt an edgy vibe. 

You can shop this shirt via the link below:

I hope I’ve inspired you to invest in a shirt like this one … they are so stylish and comfy!
