How I styled the 'Sports Luxe' Edit with John Lewis

Outfits

WHEN you're approached by John Lewis to style an outfit based on their latest Sports Luxe Edit, the outcome of the look is pretty obvious, for me anyway. I'm talking about my (almost) trademark sweats and vest combination that - at least in my mind - never seems to get old. Paired with the usual suspects (and with the addition of some new 'drilles) thrown over the shoulders and around the waist I guess you could say this is my idea of spring-meets-sport essemble. All that's missing is the personal trainer..although I suppose I have my boyfriend for that one. Anyone notice his name in the credits above? Bois got skillz.

How I spend my day in the country

THERE really is no place like home - which is where I'll be for the next two weeks. I've had my first proper night's sleep in months (no thanks to my neighbours back in London) and woke up to a bed filled with cats. My own, of course - although all are welcome. 

This afternoon I've decided to leave my desk for a bit of fresh Cornish air, soon to be followed by a trip to le boyfriend's (who I haven't seen for nearly a month!) and a big all you can eat Chinese meal with his family. Not a bad day at all if you ask me. I wish I had something overly interesting and groundbreaking to say in this blog post, but since I've been asleep for the past eighteen hours not much has really happened. Instead, I'll leave you with yet another outfit featuring me in a dress. Until next time!

JUST a quick #tbt for today, as right now I'm out at an event for Ulanka on Oxford st. Strike that, at around 7am I'm potentially still in bed, but who knows, maybe I've decided to become a morning person for once. I wasn't going to post these pictures as they're fairly old and I'm not exactly looking my best in them, but that's just the way life goes I guess. Trust me, I'm probably looking a whole lot better here than I am whilst being sprawled out in my bed right now. I don't think any of you are ready for that imagery just yet..

An attempt at feminine dressing

Outfits

THERE'S nothing quite as exciting as a package all the way from Paris, except a challenge. We're all so used to seeing me swan around the blog in sweatpants and leather jackets, so for once I decided to step outside of my comfort zone, get rid of the black (almost) and take a shot at semi-feminine dressing with this Claudie Pierlot sheer jacket.

Sans the outerwear I guess this outfit looks almost identical to most of my usual day-wear: Loose tailored trousers, a light tank top and my life-saving pair of heels that have lasted me way longer than they should. As well as the jacket I actually decided to make a slight effort with myself on this day - spending an extra three minutes applying eyeliner and actually brushing my hair for once (I know right?) - but the jacket is really what makes this outfit what it is. I'd love to know what you think of this secretive side of me?

You can shop more of the Claudie Pierlot Flirt collection online and in-store.

*Collection is available in the following Lodon stores: South Molten Street, Kings Road, Westbourne Grove & Hampstead

These are a few of my favourite things

MY favourite things kinda differ from Maria's Brown paper packages tied up with string theory. I'm more interested in a day-off filled with my favourite fashion magazines, a pair of new shoes, a few nice accessories and a good cup of coffee. I've wanted one of these takeaway style mugs for so long now - can't wait to pop it in my car for longer journeys. Roof down, music playing, wind in my hair. Oh summer, please hurry..
