What I Wore – Lavish Alice

I have admired the sports luxe faire of Lavish Alice for quite some time and – after they released a rather gorgeous capsule collection of premium jersey pieces – I was destined to finally got my hands on a piece or two.

Or at least that’s what I’m telling myself. And I couldn’t be happier. This skirt (though not part of the collection) is gorgeous, comfortable and pairs perfectly with the sheer yoke sweater. Which, I should add, is undeniably stroke-worthy thanks to a high cotton content.

What I Wore:
Peach & White Ribbed Sweater with Sheer Yoke
Mint Asymmetric Pencil Skirt
Jasper Conran doctor’s bag (similar here)

What I Wore – Spring Awakening

spring awakening
I am no stranger to florals, but I always find them trickier to style than other prints. While the safe styling go-to is always nudes or pastels, when F&F challenged me to style this open back dress, I thought I’d aim for something a little more edgy. Florals and lots of black? It put a smile on my face!

What I Wore:
Floral print open back dress from F&F
Slash neck 3/4 sleeve top
Past season suede heels from Duo (similar here)
Past season gem belt (similar here)
Laser-cut Evelina clutch bag from Lagom

What I Wore – Dolce and Gabbana Face

Though I don’t buy sunglasses all too often (once a year, if that), I tend to get completely obsessed with the pairs that end up cased and handbagged with me. In this case, I was obsessed before they even arrived.

After hours scrolling the pages of the Sunglasses Shop (it’s like sunglass porn), these bad boys from Dolce & Gabbana were on their way to me.

Deserving of a far snazzier name than the ‘4171P‘, these sunspecs are simply gorgeous. From the cream-coloured cat eyes to the slinky logo-ed arms, they are the effortlessly cool and look good with practically everything I’ve worn over the past week. Lust.

What I Wore – Popcorn

Though the promise of sunshine had me wanting to run around Primrose Hill in stilettos and sundresses, I had quite a bit of ‘running around’ to do in London at the tail end of the week. Forgoing my ankle-breakers for a pair of sensible booties, this comfy/lazy outfit won me a few unexpected smiles from strangers. That, or everyone was juiced on sunshine.

(I hacked the handbag into a long strap instead of its ‘popcorn strap’ and it was the wisest decision of the weekend. #handsfree)

What I Wore:
Popcorn handbag from Kate Spade (DIY by me)
Floral jumper from Zara
Striped shirt from TM Lewin
Zipped skinnies from Zara
Cashmere socks (similar here)
Boots from Even & Odd (similar here)
Steampunk necklace (handmade gift)

What I Wore – Little Red

Redheads always get warned against wearing red, but I am completely drawn the opportunity to wear as many fire hues as I can get my hands on. Red, burgundy, ginger and a pop of blue? That’s a happy little get-up, right there.

What I Wore:
Crop top (not that you can tell…) from Missguided (similar here)
Handmade full red midi skirt (similar here)
Blue socks from SockShop
Lita platforms from Jeffrey Campbell (similar here)
