I have gone aboooove and beyond to get you honey’s a blog post. I’ve been really busy working *cough* .. and drinking cocktails and frying my buns in the sun… aaaand eating a load of Easter eggs. Anyway, short and sweet look book shot by my girl Georgia Petrou on film. I pimped out my baker-boy hat with my fave 80’s YSL brooch, slung a monochrome jacket (by my new boutique store find – AOC Edit) over a Carhartt dungarees and thew on on some dirty air forces. But I think it works. I’ll let the people decide.

    So as most of you may know, I’ve been on my holidays! If you follow me on Instagram I apologise sincerely for all the obnoxious beach snaps… I know how it feels viewing other peoples vacay photos whilst sitting in wet and miserable London! 

    Before I set off, I was on a mission to find the perfect bikinis. I love a one piece but when I’m in the sun, it’s important for me to make the most of it and tan my whole body. I teamed up with www.southbeachofficial.com and picked out these little beauties! IMG_4540-1IMG_4541Khaki is one of my FAVE colours – looks great with blonde hair and even better once you’ve got a tan!

    So this little crochet number is perfectttto for a tropical holiday. All the right vibes and defies the generic white/black crochet kini!

    IMG_3420IMG_3503I just LOVE this shape bikini top. The triangle cut is super flattering no matter what breast size you are and of course this wine colour is 2 die 4. SHOP

    So this outfit post was werrrrked around my chic new, boyfriend shirt from House of Sunny. The most perrrfect lemon yellow for spring. I wanted to keep it all black underneath to avoid distraction from the shirt. Of course the classic Chanel suspenders came out along with a lace body and split, jersey flares. In my opinion – jersey flares look best with trainers – don’t be afraid! Shop the look at the end of the post xo

    Today was officially the first day of the year where I could go out without a jacket and not freeze to death. And guess what? I WORE A JACKET. But it’s okay because this jacket is my statement piece of the month and its totally fab. Fur, denim and studs… what more could’a lady want?

    I know some may shy away double denim, cringe at double denim and some would rather sacrifice themselves to a pack of komodo dragons than wear double denim. But I like it – so here’s a whole blog post on me wearing double denim. And of course a cute Guess tee, some Simmi.com (sizzling’) shoes and an oversized choker!

    Are we still allowed to say Happy New Year? Whatevr. I’m saying it.

    January for me has been momentous in many ways. Hence the lack of blog. I’m also a year older so celebrations have been keeping me busy. One celebration I’m actually blogging about now. My oldest and bestest friend Holly treated me a belated birthday treat, taking me for cream tea at ‘Forest’ above Selfridges and then to the HAIR exhibition at Somerset House. IMG_0216

    I was in HEAVEN. The HAIR exhibition featured a mock up Chanel runway, endless issues of Vogue and deep insight into fashion shows over the years.

    …We then had a very chic and relaxing stay at the K-West hotel & spa in Shepherds Bush. The K-West used to be a recording studio once upon a time and keeps to it’s ‘funky’ roots with a sassy design and modern features. Not to mention we had the best night sleep we’ve had in a while…

    1. Bathroom at K West

    We were given the huge Embassy suite for our stay (bed as big as your goals) – but my favourite part was the spa. The spa at the K-West actually has a SNOW paradise. So cool (literally).  It’s the only place in the UK to cater for the ‘hot/cold therapy’ alternating between steam and ice environments.

    1. Snow Paradise - K Spa

    How brill is that?! Admittedly I only lasted a minute in the snow room as I’m a huge wimp but trés exhilarating for sureThe other spa features included a huge hydrotherapy pool, sauna, steam room, and chill out cabins. Whata dream.

    My outfit for the evening festivities! (top – Zara, Jeans – Versus Versace)

     It’s safe to say we were kept thoroughly entertained at the K-West Hotel with a great room, an amazing spa, a lively bar and a bangin’ eggs Benedict for breakfast.

    So EVERYONE’S been asking where this outfit is from in these pics that were released earlier this week. I had to do a post! This jacket is a dream and although it’s pretty pricey – it’s definitely worth it for the Gucci vibes.

    Scroll to the bottom of the post for the break down. And GUYS – if you’re reading, you can also purchase Casey’s outfit at the bottom too.

    It seems as though the jacket hasn’t been released yet – I will keep my eyes peeled for you but other exact items are linked below. My INCREDIBLE handmade, Coco Chanel bag was purchased in Ibiza from a boutique store called B London. It brings me to tears when I think about how dreamy it is…..

    Have ya missed me? I thought I’d do a pretty casual post for you all, something you’re able to copy yourself and easily purchase from the high street. But still keeps you looking like the top dolllla, gold hermes birkin that you are and deserve to be of course.

    To make this look stand out – I embellished my basic (but still pretty cool) Flash Gordon tee with these giant gold safety pins. DIY isn’t just for men <3

    How much do you love this headband? Adding a big statement headband takes your outfit from basic to Beyonce.

    Nabbed this gorgeous cardi from Goldie in the sale (£25 bargain!) and added some faux fur wrist cuffs for that bit extra. AND Look how well these pants fit! Currently in love with these skin-tight metallic trousers from new season Glamorous!

    Following from Monday’s post here is another look including shoes from the FLAWLESS Terry De Havilland. These gorgeous goldies are from his actual couture collection online. They are the heel form of my gold wedges. Honestly the detail on these shoes are insane. I’m also wearing a jumper from Fan Club Clothing – we all know how perfect this jumper is for me. My love affair with cowboys jus’ keeps growing.
