Monday Musing

Girls, help, I am having a style crisis.  Since moving to London it has opened my eyes to the ridiculous amount of clothes that I own and don't wear.  This is not only a total waste of money its taking up space in my lovely room.  Rather than a tranquil space to unwind after a days work it's more a walk in wardrobe with a bed.  I feel totally cluttered and have come to the conclusion that a serious sort out, de-clutter session and style evaluation is needed.  Gone are the days of buying something because it was a few quid, the future will see me making wise outfit shopping decisions purchasing solid staples that albeit might come with a higher price tag but will last and ooze a bit more class.  

I also think age is another factor to this style mid life crisis type feeling that I am having as Tuesday brings my 28th birthday. Yes 28.  I honestly thought I would be married with 4 kids by this age, rather thankfully I am not.  Although one day that would be a dream I'm not quite ready for all that just yet, I mean that's pretty hard to do when your still flying the single flag eh ;-)  Getting back to my age, I feel hitting 28 should bring a small style update in the form of more stylish classic pieces, less flesh flashing numbers (yes gone are the days of the mini body con dress, mainly because my diet plan seems to have gone AWOL) and savvy shopping tactics.  Here is some style inspiration, accessory wise I can't completely ditch the gold as it's sort of in my DNA but I have picked out some of my fave looks that could fit in with the wardrobe update...

Wish me luck on the savvy shopping front, it's going to be hard considering I LOVE a bargain.  But seriously I really don't need any more vintage shirts.

LFW Street Style

Street style is for me the best form of inspiration, as you can imagine the stylish cobbles of Somerset house were brimming with an eclectic mix of fabrics & textures, way out there outfits and on trend pieces styled to perfection.  
It was a feast of fashion for my eyes so of course I had to capture my favourite looks, be warned though a slightly image heavy post coming up, me and my camera got a tad carried away...

Fan gurling moment when I saw Andy from Style Scrapbook

Probably one of the coolest couples I know Megan from Pages by Megan and her fella Will.

Premier Inn, LFW and a OTTD

Today was bound to be a blog post containing LFW chat as I went along yesterday for blogger catch ups, shows and some street style snapping!  

The Friday night Premier Inn kindly put me up in one of their very central hotels, an easy 10 minute walk to Somerset house making my LFW prep a lot easier!  I had the best nights sleep and genuinely felt like Lenny Henry in the advert, the beds are incredible and now somehow my bedding at home just doesn't have the same comfort factor!  
I filled up on their delicious breakfast and headed over around 11 where I hung out with blogging babes LizzyMeganLindseyLuisa and Hannah who, can I just say are all so bloody lovely, they made my day even more enjoyable.  

We chatted away, went to the Bernard Chandran show at fashion scout, had G&T's at the ME Hotel, papped each other and went on the hunt for some good street style.  All in all such a fab day.  I would have loved to have gone along today but unfortunately the furthest Ill get is a MacDonald's run as I am battling a hangover from hell today!  
I doubt the fashionable cobbles of Somerset house would appreciate my hunger style today.

 I have so many street style shots so they will be up in my next post, lots of style envy and fashion inspiration!  

Right that's me done I am signing off now, ordering a Chinese with my housemates and chilling in front of X factor.  

Hope you lovely lot have a good evening!

Ripped Mom Jeans

I am now a proud owner of a pair of mom jeans.  
They are these bad boys, black, ripped, high waisted and they literally go with anything. 
Please someone tell me why I did not own a pair before?  
They are so comfy and the perfect trouser for a lazy Sunday mooch round Brick Lane as they hide a multitude of sins so I could happily over indulge on the delights of the food market without a food baby on show!

I am currently preparing for an early night as tomorrow marks the kick off of Fashion Week, not that I will be there as I am working and up at the crack of dawn for an early start.
However I will be about on the Saturday, holla/tweet/comment if you are there as I'm always up for a buddy to hang with otherwise I will be the slightly awkward looking one in an outfit that I cannot yet describe as I am still having a drama over what to wear!  
All I do know is I am wearing some pretty sweet Chelsea boots thanks to Missguided aaaaaaand so far that's it!  

Better continue with the prep and packing as tomorrow night I am staying at a London Hotel courtesy of Premier Inn so I can have a good nights sleep before hitting Somerset house for some street style spotting!

Hopefully see you there!

Monday Musing...

Getting inspired for LFW by checking out all the street style looks from NYFW, street style really is my most favourite form of inspiration.  
Now the biggest task on my hands this week (except a ridiculously busy week at work) is what the hell to wear next weekend...!

Yesterday was #bloggersfestival day - hosted by Scarlett London it was a day of cocktails, chatting, meeting brands and eating cupcakes.  
I got to catch up with the lovely Sade from In my Sunday best who is an absolute babe, we had a quick juice and a cake in Carnaby street before heading over to Paramount Bar.  
We mooched around and chatted to Urban Outfitters, Very, Lee Stafford Hair and Want her dress entering various competitions as we went!  
It was a lovely day so thank you Scarlett for inviting me along. / Urban Outfitters

After the event me and Sade popped down a little side road to take some blog pictures, then grabbed the tube home.  I had a serious 90's vibe with my outfit which was down to the choker and lbd over white tee combo!
