Looking back on some of my recent purchases, it would seem that I have become somewhat obsessed with all things shiny and silver. I am such a sucker for this trend. I have always loved wearing clothes that are super eye-catching, and these metallic pieces are a dream because they are not only amazing statement pieces on their own, but they are plain enough to mix and match with other bright, printed, statement pieces for maximum wow-factor! Bonus!

My recent purchases: Luster Anorak from Nasty Gal, Staple the Label cracked metallic tee in silver from Market HQ, Staple the Label cracked metallic shorts in silver from Market HQ, and Miista May ankle boots in silver from Solestruck.

OOTD: Inked

Soot Elroy Shorts Ink Print

I invested in these amazing SOOT. printed neoprene shorts a while ago at Marie Claire's James Street Up Late event, after falling in love with them at first sight. I'm obsessed with the intricate hand drawn 'Ink Print' that also features in several other pieces in SOOT.'s most recent collection 'Paperback', a number of which are currently on my wishlist. I definitely recommend checking out SOOT.'s website for more gorgeous pieces!

I teamed my SOOT. Elroy shorts with my favourite cropped Batman top by Lazy Oaf, my Oliver bag, and chelsea ankle boots from ASOS, and then threw on my thrifted oversize denim jacket to ward off the winter cold.

OOTD: Picnic in Pink

fashion blog ootd hot pink vintage silk pants

With exams finished and uni finally over for the semester (YAY!), what better activity to start the holidays with than an afternoon of smiles and snacks with all my friends I had been missing during the semester. 

We got together for a cute little Sunday afternoon picnic in Southbank, but sadly the purpose of the event was to say farewell to a friend who will be heading off to Mexico until early next year - adiós Clare! 

To counter my sadness over Clare's impending departure, I picked out the brightest piece of clothing I could find in my wardrobe - these HOT PINK vintage silk pants
I came across these little treasures a few years ago in an antique shop in Paddington and couldn't believe my luck. They're super comfy, in perfect condition, and all the little details (especially the gemstone buttons!) are divine. They've been hiding away in the sea of clothes that is my wardrobe for far too long and I'm so glad I decided to take them out for a spin; it was near impossible not to feel happy while wearing them.

I paired them with my striped mesh crop by Glamorous from ASOS, my brand new chelsea ankle boots from ASOS, and my Graz x Ellery Quixote catseye sunglasses from Optiko.

OOTD: Harry's 21st

OOTD Sara Phillips Iris Skirt Oliver Clear Impressionist Bag
Me and Jacob.

This past Saturday night I celebrated my friend Harry's 21st birthday at The London Club in Teneriffe. 
The dress code was cocktail so I was excited to finally have something to dress up for! 
I'd just splashed some cash on this gorgeous Sara Phillips Iris Skirt that I'd been lusting after, for what felt like an eternity, since I first saw the fabulous Fabliha sporting it a few months back, so this seemed like the perfect occasion for it to make its debut. 
I wanted my freshly dyed hair and red lips to really stand out so I stuck to black and white, teaming it with a plain white button-up, my black pointed-toe heels from Yesstyle, and my new transparent Impressionist bag by Oliver.

Having fun with my girl Hattie who looked super fab in all black with a cheeky peek-a-boo.

I've been totally snowed in by uni work lately and Saturday night was a much needed break. Thankfully exams are almost over so hopefully i'll be able to get some more posts out soon. 
Until then...
