Slogan Tees OOTD

earrings- Missguided*
sunglasses- Topshop (old), similar here

Hello lovelies! Long time no post, but it felt really good to get a outfit shot today! Kind of been in a bit of a blogging rut recently. During my last few weeks of uni I had to put blogging on hold and found it a little tricky to pick it back up again. It sounds odd but I genuinely feel just out of practise. 

So whats new? Since I've finished Uni I headed straight to Ibiza (post will be up in a couple days so i'll keep it short) but it was fab and I fell in love with the island. Came home and booked another holiday to LA later this year, very spontaneous but who can say no to Vegas? 
After getting back from holiday I've finally had a little time to myself, actually being able to see friends and family often is so refreshing following finishing uni (aka the most stressful period of my life) and being a social recluse.

Anyway back to the outfit! Slogan tees are everywhere at the moment, a trend that I've been loving too. Wearing one of my favourites from Missy Empire, I love watching people trying to read from a distance haha. Super comfy outfit today, these Topshop cigarette trousers are a long time favourite of mine. Paired it with my new Lola May bomber and Misspap bag to add a little somethin'!

I've popped in a few of my other favourite below too if you're on the lookout for one!

Minimal Basics OOTD

Happy Saturday! These gorgeous Cheska mules arrived in the post this morning, they look even cooler in person, SO chuffed with them! 
Ego actually have 25% student discount with Unidays which makes these beauties £18.70!! It's redeamable on their site 

I'm so close to finishing uni now and can't wait to start posting a little bit more blog content once I'm done. I've spent a long time in higher education so I don't know what I'll do with myself (apart from trying to get a job haha). I'm collaborating for my final collection and it's made it to the LCF BA'17 show, which is totally amazing!

It's great to be able to have faux leather but still with all the Gucci vibes, they definitely help jazz up this outfit. Below I've picked out some more faux leather embroidered pieces I think are just as great!

Shoe Styling with New Look

* this post was sponsored by New Look *

I was set a challenge by New Look to choose a pair of shoes and style an outfit around them. I love having fun with fashion like this so I was really excited to give this a try!

I went for these black fluffy sliders, I've been after a pair just like this for a while now but never knew what to wear them with. If I'm really stuck on outfit ideas I'll go to Pinterest and search for a particular item, I normally find so much inspo! This time I couldn't find anything!! So felt like this outfit was a bit of a gamble but I adore it!

The trousers have a small split at each ankle which makes them a little bit more *fashion* than a basic cigarette leg. I went for a really laid back feel with this giant cuffed shirt, I sized up a couple sizes to give it that oversized masculine feel.
Lastly I accessorised with some simple, statement sunglasses & earrings. I feel like the gold accents make the whole outfit a little bit more luxe and fancy.

What do you think of faux fur shoes? I think these sliders are really versatile if you're looking to try out the trend! I've linked everything below if you're interested. Of course with New Look it's so affordable, each piece is under £20, how amazing!


Happy Sunday!

Sunday Snakeskin OOTD

Happy Sunday! 
I haven't have much time recently to blog but feel like I have so many new pieces I want to share. This Misspap bag is something I wouldn't usually go for, I love a little shoulder bag but I don't remember the last time I owned a yellow item (if ever!). I get such designer-esq Gucci vibes from it. Paired it with a super simple outfit, Missy Empire blue jeans and a PLT black ruffle top. Some of my favourite wardrobe staples at the moment!

Anyway only a quick post today, back to frantically sewing my final collection! Wish me luck haha.

A Bloggers Guide to Winchester

Although I don't hail from Winchester I've spent many years now living here in-between my time in London. I thought it was about time I shared some of my favourite things to do and places to visit.

So firstly you'll want to check out the high street, there's a White Company, Space NK, Jigsaw, to name some of my favourites! If shopping isn't what you're after, the town has lots to explore. Head down a side street and there are so many pretty roads and beautiful houses to spot.

If you caught my previous post I paid my first visit to Rawberry last week. It's so great, I love the food and the interior. I had a charcoal latte today (!!) tasted amazing, I highly recommend.
It's great for a healthy lunch or just a coffee/smoothie!
T H E   H A M B L E D O N
My all time favourite shop in Winchester, I take everyone and anyone here. I get most excited about the homeware bits, books and beauty ranges. Always the best displays, you'll end up leaving with things you didn't even know you needed but now can't live without.
So this part is probably only going to be interesting to blogging gals like myself. Winchester is such a pretty town there is an abundance of places to grab outfit photos, I took mine today on Parchment Street, can't beat a classic white wall haha (it's also quiet enough that I'm not in everyones way!).

For lunch, my favourite is Forte Kitchen. it can be easy to miss as it's kind of tucked away but has great food and atmosphere. 
Alternatively if it's good weather the BEST thing to do is grab a bunch of your favourite food from M&S (my personal fave) and head over the Cathedral or Abbey grounds. If it's sunny & the weekend it'll be busy, but there's always room to sit on the grass and people/ cute dog watching.
Lastly, if you have the time Winchester cinema is the best you'll ever go to. It's small (only 2 screens!) but super fancy. Exposed brick inside, the seats are velvet and roomy, plus show great films (old & new). There's a bar and you can even grab yourself some pre film tapas, what more could you want!

I tried to keep this post condensed but there's so much more I could mention, think i'll follow up with a part 2 at some point! If you have any favourites I haven't mentioned do let me know!

Happy Sunday,
Olivia xx

Tuesday OOTD

Hi friends, so this is just a really quick post today! I've been sewing like mad the past week working on my final collection for Uni. I ran out of fabric so had to make a trip into Winchester, which obviously meant checking out Rawberry for the first time too. Although I spend so much time in the town centre I've never actually been (it's in a great spot for people watching by the way!). Inside is really cool, it's all vegetarian with lots of healthy smoothies and snacks- love!

So Aurore was kind enough to send me some pieces recently, today I'm wearing the Rivoli dress. It's such a lovely wardrobe staple to invest in. I wore it to a party with my boyfriend at the weekend I dressed it up with heels and a clutch, but I think it looks super cute with a jumper and jacket layered over too. I love having versatile pieces in my wardrobe, my style is so simple it really gives me more scope with outfits!

Happy Tuesday,
Olivia xx

Holiday Wardrobe Inspo & Prep

So I booked my holiday this week! I'm heading to Ibiza with my boyfriend in a few months time! You might not be that surprised to hear we'll be staying clear of the more notorious areas. We're going to being enjoying the beautiful beaches, food and culture the island has to offer (& all the cocktails, of course!). I'm so excited to give my wardrobe a holiday refresh, so sharing my current wish list and pinterest inspiration!

Saturday London City Guide

Hello! Okay so today was just going to be an outfit post but I had such a fun day I thought I'd share what we did too! There's so much to do in London it can be a little overwhelming sometimes, but if you're after a pretty chill day and nothing too touristy- this might be for you!

We headed to Broadway Market first (okay I'm really sorry I don't have photos), but it's my favourite Saturday market. Great for food, flowers and cool homeware/ jewellery stands too. We stopped by Franco Manca for pizza and a beer after we'd spent a while browsing the market.

Shoreditch was our next stop, we grabbed a coffee at Friends Of Ours on Pitfield Street (I used to live on that road so was super cute to pay a visit again).
Both watches are from Daniel Wellington, I'm wearing the black canvas strap which is a great alternative to leather! I've linked them both at the bottom of the post.

From Pitfield Street we headed to Curtain Road (where I go to Uni, also cute haha) to give GoodHood a visit. It's SO cool, possibly the coolest shop I've ever been in. Stocks womens, mens and homeware. Brands like Comme Des Garcons, HAY & Have A Good Time. Matt loved it too, he kept saying 'I need to buy something'.. honestly I could relate, it was such a great store *take my money!!*.

Box Park was our next stop, really great pop up shops there. Decorum is fab for homeware and Astrid & Miyu have beautiful jewellery! Also the upstairs is amazing for street food. Have a search online before you head in to see what's there at the moment!
I grabbed us an Ice-cream from Softserve, green tea!! I'm a sucker for anything Matcha really, not only did it photograph really well It tasted great too.

Lastly we took a little look down Redchurch Street, some more really nice shops including Aesop & Modern Society. On a late sunny Saturday afternoon it's really chilled and was a great stop off before we headed home.
