Going Boho in Soho with Free People

If you follow the rules, then maxi dresses are a style for summer. However, if you're like me and love to bend them, you'll find that this summer staple can totally be re-modelled for winter. As for the perfect transitional pieces, look no further than boho brand, Free People. I get it, no doubt LA girls in flowy bohemian dresses immediately springs to mind, but think again. This season, Free People have created a luxe collection of bohemian-inspired styles, catered for those of us that live in colder climates.

As a lover of all things boho, this trendy velvet maxi dress quickly found a top spot in my closet. And whether it's styled with a simple leather jacket, or as I’ve done in the images below, layered with a long sleeved sheer blouse underneath, there’s absolutely no reason to wait until summer to release your inner hippy.

Stradivarius: The 5 need-it-now pieces for Winter

If there's one thing you have to make a high priority ASAP. - it's constructing your winter wardrobe. As we all mentally prepare ourselves for ways to survive this winter fashionably. Prepping your winter wardrobe doesn't have to be daunting this season, thanks to high street brand, Stradivarius. Their latest winter collection has a range of pieces to fulfil all your needs. 
This fashion guide contains a selection of trendy pieces that require minimal warmth sacrificing to keep you covered for the colder days. 

Winter Fashion Essentials #1: The Chunky Cable Knit
At the top of every girls winter wish list is finding the perfect knitted jumper. Stradivarius have a beautiful range of chunky knits, from oversized to cropped. I opted for this Mustard wide-sleeve knit, as outlined in a previous blogpost, Mustard is totes the colour to be wearing right now. Therefore this jumper, is the perfect combination with it's on trend colour palette and oversized comfort, it's oh-so-perfect for winter. 

Winter Fashion Essentials #2: The Pleated Midi Skirt 
Just because the temperature has taken a fall, it doesn't necessarily mean you have to pack your skirts away. Though, if you're going to be wearing one, it's got to be this pleated monochrome midi. To style this look more casually, I paired it with a tucked in slogan sweatshirt. However by layering it with a fur coat, adds that extra glam factor. 

Winter Fashion Essentials: #3: The Belted Satin Trousers 
Although my selection of denim jeans and leggings are going to work wonders this winter, I decided to diversity my bottoms range by adding these trousers to the mix. Classic black trousers are redeemed as a wardrobe staple in my book, this is a piece that you can wear all year round whatever the occasion. Whether it's for your work wardrobe or for everyday, they can be easily dressed up or down for day to night. 

Winter Fashion Essentials #4: The Embroidered Lace Top
As noted before, if there's one style icon I follow religiously it's Olivia Palermo, and since LFW when she wore an embroidered poplin shirt, I have been searching for an urban alternative. Playing with textures and patterns is always a good way to switch up your winter wardrobe. As we approach party season, i've been building up a collection of stylish pieces that can be worn to any upcoming events. This lace embroidered top is the perfect addition, I love the subtly red bird embroidery on the lace fabric. This piece definitely will add a point of differentiation into any fashionistas wardrobe. As styled below, the top can be worn casually with a pair of velvet jeans or with a leather skater skirt for eveningwear.

Winter Fashion Essentials #5: The Classic Ankle Boots
As seen on my Instagram I have accumulated a mass of leather boots in preparation for winter, from pointed to heeled. These suede and leather block heel boots are perfect for everyday wear, the height of the heel makes it so perfect to wear casually.

This Season's Trendiest Faux Fur Piece

Okay, I have to admit,  Autumn is by far my favourite season of the year. Why? You may ask, well urrrm it means I get to invest in loads of cosy knits, thick socks and bring out my faux fur collection. As I know from experience, how FUR-eezing London can get, I will not be taking any risks with my wardrobe this season. In preparation for the colder days ahead of us, I went all out and invested in some closet staples. One being this statement faux fur coat from Revolve, the charcoal tones make it perfect to pair with anything in your fall wardrobe. I decided to style this statement piece with a pair of flared boot cut jeans, (again from Tularosa). This look was inspired by one of my favourite fashion bloggers @SongofStyle, One of Aimee's classic looks that never fails her, is the bootleg jeans paired with chunky knits. This number I'm wearing is from House of Harlow, a new brand that I've recently been introduced to on Revolve. The chunky knit can be styled in multiple ways, whether it's tucked in or out, it's the perfect duo for denim.

Also, Christmas has come early for us all as Revolve are having a 20% off everything from Nov 1st - Nov 3rd.
So gal pals, shop away!

My Vogue Feature

It's been little over a month since London Fashion Week, and although I'm happy that the crazy days are finally over, it was by far my most memorable of them all. As manic as fashion week may be, it sometimes goes by so fast that you forget to pause and appreciate all that's happening. I was fortunate  enough to receive an exclusive press piece from Dorothy Perkins to wear throughout LFW. The best gift of all and most rewarding experience was being told by one of my friends that I had been featured on Vogue. I felt shocked, excited and humbled all at the same time! It was truly overwhelming. I still have to pinch myself every once in a while to make sure I'm not dreaming.  Testament to the dress gifted by Dorothy Perkins, throughout fashion week it was not only picked up by Vogue but so, too, Look Magazine! Who asked to feature my Instagram photo in their magazine. It's moments like these that make me appreciate and value how far I've come with my blog and one can only hope this success continues.
