Don’t you just love coming back to the things you just cannot leave at the back of your wardrobe? Today I went for this chic combo of heavier leather pleat texture & bubble gum and sky blue pastels.
If you ever find yourself stuck in a style rut, playing with colour combinations is a perfect way to liven up your wardrobe. Today I have combed peach and brown. The soft pastel-hued peach gives off a summery and feminine vibe and when combined with the neutral, yet sturdy brown, creates outfits that are both chic and perfectly balanced.

ROKSANDA ILINCIC Estes silk-crepe collar blouse (last season)
Today featuring something for a chillier day….
Flowing coats are one of my favourite outerwear in-between the seasons. This JAEGER reversible herringbone wool coat has certainly got the air of casual insouciance and it weighs so little, it can be tossed over the shoulders like a shawl – I love its astonishing versatility and flattering fit.
Cloud-soft and lightweight, the double-faced grey wool coat is perfect for making an easy transition into a warmer season. Designed to a wrap-around silhouette with a waist-cinching belt, this chic piece is reversible – giving you two tones of grey- cloudy and slightly darker herringbone – to choose from.
I love the structured look of this lilac white nylon shell skirt with contrasting flocked wool pattern throughout.
Fluffy lilac grid adds texture and gives the boxy-cut skirt a contemporary spin.
3.1 Phillip Lim Cash Only Terry Sweater is a cool statement piece for a laid-back style…
Slim-fitted heathered grey cotton sweater with ribbed round neck, cuffs and hemline, dropped shoulder seams and black raised ”CASH ONLY” textured lettering is a fun way to go about!
I accesorised with Jil Sander‘s sleek and sophisticated and roomy luxe appeal tote. This grape leather tote has been crafted in Italy with a green leather-lined interior and detachable shoulder strap, equipped with multiple pockets to keep your essentials in check, double top handles and protective feet. Complete with stamped branding and a top zip, your workwear looks will be given an instant lift.
This tote certainly offers an immaculate finish for all four seasons.
The final touches are JAEGER patent grey leather heels with a cute burgundy ribbon and pink sunglasses.

What is a perfect dress? Short, long, fitted, loose, to me, the perfect dress takes many forms and shapes but they all have one common denominator – once you slip into it, it is like your second skin. Even without accessorising, you instantaneously feel like a million dollars and that’s what it’s all about!

Alexander Wang is one of the most dropped names in fashion circles admired for mixing cutting-edge designs with a laid-back attitude. I love Alexander Wang’s style for blending classic and refined silhouettes with an industrial edge, innovative cut and urban sensibility. His clothes are at all times luxurious, but also provocative, inspiring and wearable.
The utility pocket was a major detail on the Alexander Wang A/W14 runway, and this cargo coat comes fully equipped, designed to hold all your daily life essentials. It is finished with a neon-green corduroy collar and multiple, moulded pockets and a lightly padded quilted neon yellow lining.
There is something incredibly satisfying about wearing his heels, not only does Wang create most coveted accessories each season, but this time he also incorporates the runaway’s utilitarian feel injecting a dose of futuristic style into otherwise, daily-wear pieces.
These super cool Lys boots are crafted from polished-leather with an exaggerated, shield-like front panel. Finished with a well-balanced ostrich-effect heel, this backless, gorgeous pair look best with shorter hemlines.
It is a much coveted and instantly recognisable cult bag featuring a classic satchel form with rock chic style including silver studded base and red pebbled-leather The iconic bristle studded hardware and duffle-like shape give this fashionista must-have a very sought-after look,

“Baby, it is cold outside” is certainly the new London theme tune right now as it got really chilly out here.
I am the last person to welcome the wintry blasts but before I settle comfortably into my cosy shearling coats and knee high boots, there are a couple of less heavy-duty outfits I would like to share.
When it comes to knits, cashmere is the king, this ultra soft fabric is a symbol of opulence and unparalleled comfort.
I have found this lovely Marc by Marc Jacobs cashmere tulle frill neck jumper on one of recent wanders at the local TX Maxx in the City. Trust Marc By Marc Jacobs to inject this wardrobe classic with a fun feminine twist giving the essential plain black sweater a fashion-forward update! Amp it up with the optional tulle collar when the mood takes you!
The collar is button detachable and features semi-sheer polka dot tulle frill embellishment.
I love contrasting and complementing colours and colour blocking is one of my favourite styles so I opted for this gorgeous JAEGER Italian Melton wool Pencil Skirt in fabulous oxblood. This beautifully cut pencil skirt with a smooth waistband and split at the front and back is so figure skimming and a must for the office or evening drinks. It looks equally marvelous with a silk blouse!
The black studded Alexander McQueen De Manta clutch will complete the coolest of day or evening looks.
I accessorised with Fendi Rose Gold Bangle and Michael Kors Rose Gold watch.
I kicked the outfit off with a pair of Preen for Aldo Pravda Rise pumps featuring a pointy toe, patchwork leather detail and bold block heels that not only elongate your legs, but also keep feet comfortable.
I love these heels for the unusual V-shaped front finish and grainy feel to the leather.

I am all for exploring new trends and labels and today I wanted to share a new brand I have recently discovered on theOutnet.
Mother of Pearl is a cool British label with rich collaboration-infused collections where silhouettes and detailing stay true to the sports luxe aesthetic the brand is so close to. Expect effortless, easy-to-wear silhouettes with eclectic edge.
Being a fan of leather, I love this Mother of Pearl anthracite animal print calf hair Leona top I picked up on theOutnet sale.
The lightweight leather front, contrasting black satin back panel, and twill trims, make this peplum top a very interesting alternative to cropped jumper or a shirt.
I have teamed it up with Raoul Embossed stretch-jersey leggings-style pants, I also got on theOutnet.
Raoul is yet another label I got to love for its contemporary take on classic wardrobe pieces. Singapore-based Raoul’s refined aesthetic juxtapose bold paneling with strong patterns and neat draping.
The jacket features very quirky leather halterneck vest-effect front with flap pockets and snap-fastenings through the front.
Yet again, Wang puts his signature twist on the slingback pump with a side cutout and sharply textured suede in half d’Orsay silhouette. Like all of Alexander Wang’s creations, they are beautifully profiled and comfortable!

The event brought together a number of fabulous brands and bloggers. The idea behind the get-together was for the bloggers to chat, exchange tips and meet with up-and-coming brands, of course.
I decided to wear this vibrant green Rokanda Ilinicic skirt and JOSEPH navy cashmere cropped jumper I featured recently on the blog.I teamed the outfit with this 3.1 Phillip Lim Minute clutch Bag in a demure midnight navy and these CHLOÉ calf leather two tone Moccasins. I popped on my favourite Links of London Watch Over Me necklace to finish the look.
I had a chance to meet Katherine Foot, the founder of GlowBeads. She showcased the most gorgeous sets of necklaces wand bracelets in the most vibrant of colours that glow when light hits them!
Featured in the UK Vogue Magazine, the brand features funky, eye catching and modern pieces of jewellery, perfect for parties, presents and weddings! Check it out!
The central part of the event was the fashion show orchestrated by Eva Cammarata – a womenswear designer who already showcased in New York, London and Paris. Her collection exploded with bold colours and unique textiles, and digital prints.
My favourite piece was the unusual calf-length, strapless print knit dress.
One of the beauty brands I really liked was the Charcoal-Spa. Represented by Claire Hultton, the make offers a fantastic range detoxifying skin products including the salt scrubs, face masks and soaps that cleanse skin removing the daily built-up of impurities. Beautifully packaged, they make a perfect present!
I love leather so D-Jewelsus – up and coming brand was right up my alley. The label offers beautifully crafted leather jewellery & accessory designs and custom-made ones.
I loved the colour blocking trapezoid pieces as well the combination of leather with calf skin. These show stopping designs will certainly get you to stand out from the crowd!
I also had a chance to meet Byron Rawlings from The Blogger Programme – the largest social platforms for bloggers, brands and publishers that facilitates initial contact and collaboration.
Later on I met one of the most amazing and experienced bloggers and U-Tubers – Leanne Lim Walker who was full of good advice for a fairly new blogger like myself. All the tips and feedback were greatly appreciated!
It was a fab evening and I am now looking forward to meeting new people at the next Bloggers Love Hub event tomorrow!
