Mariah Carey is blaring, the Baileys is being consumed in excess and boxes of Quality Street are being passed around from family member to family member.

I know, I can't believe it either, but Christmas is very nearly here!

2019 has felt like a whirlwind of a year. There's been lots of change for me, and to be honest, despite there being a lot of downs, it's been a year of me *kind of* getting my shit together. It's felt like a year of a lot of liberating decisions, and new experiences, and that's just the sort of thing I think I've needed for a while.


DRESS - PRIMARK [GIFTED] // BELT - PRIMARK [GIFTED]

Back in January I worked on amazing project with the Trafford Centre, which saw my face plastered on billboards and scattered around the shopping centre - something I never thought I'd be able to see in the flesh. I've been on billboards before, but always in other places like Paris or New York, so it was really nice to be able to see one, finally, up close and personal! 

The Trafford Centre is a really significant place for me too, as when I was in the depths on my eating disorders, my Mum would get me out of the house for the day by taking me there. Fast forward 5 years and I'm working with them and seeing myself on motorway adverts! I don't think anything will ever quite top that feeling, you know.

In February I traveled down to London for a week to shoot with Marionaudd for 2 days, on top of working with Sister Jane, which was absoloutley dreamy. I got to model along side my pal Kiera, and prance around the quirkiest Notting Hill house, which was so much fun.

I also got to work with two of my favourite people CJ and Christian to shoot some really cool stuff for BOYGIRL AGENCY. I absolutely loved the video we shot - you can watch it HERE over on my Instagram!

"As you notice the ways other people bloom, may you remember the ways you are blooming too"

In March, Josh and I ventured into London together for the first time. It's safe to say we were both very stressed that day, as I rushed from meeting to meeting, but we ended the day on a high with a little trip to the Natural History Museum, which was lovely. *side note - Josh did not enjoy the tube journeys haha.

I also got to work with Bobbi Brown on their Skin Longwear Foundation - you guys know I'm a huge Bobbi Brown stan! Every opportunity I have to work with any brand feels like such an honor and it's especially great when it's one of your all time favourites.

By April, I felt like the busiest girl in the world - constantly in Manchester shooting blog photos or going for brunch. Marta Ferenc and I shot one of my favourite campaigns of all time for Calvin Klein, and managed to get the most perfect 'golden hour' photos. I loved sharing that with you guys! 

I was also invited down for a lovely lunch with Calvin Klein too. We had an amazing 3 course meal and got to have a sneaky look at upcoming collections - what a dream come true!


BAG - PRIMARK [GIFTED] // EARRINGS - PRIMARK [GIFTED]

On May 12th I was so very kindly invited to attend that BAFTAs with Carat London, and honestly I can't even put that experience into words - it was so surreal walking the red carpet and being 'papped' like some sort of celebrity. I wish I could do it all over again!

I remember being stood by Jonathon Ross whilst sipping my champagne, and completely fangirling as David Schwimmer presented an award on stage... I WAS IN THE SAME ROOM AS ROSS GUYS!

BAFTAs aside, in May I also got to go to my first festival ever. Miss Selfridge invited me along to go to Neighborhood Weekender and it was honestly one of my highlights of the year. I had such a laugh that day, drinking with the girls and desperately trying to sign up for the karaoke tent even though the list was full (lol). I just remember having the best time and I'm so grateful I got to be surrounded by such lovely people to experience it. 

I also started my part-time job in May, which may not seem like a big deal, but this was my first ever non-self-employed job that I've ever had. It was the kick up the arse I felt I needed at the time - I'd felt lost in my little bubble, struggling for money when the paid 'ad' work fell flat, and desperately seeking something else. It may just be a retail job, but I've met some of the most amazing people from it, and I'll be forever thankful that I got given the position, despite my hugggeeee lack of experience in the 'real' world.

"It's okay if growth looks differently this season"

In June I hit the ripe old age of 21 and swanned off to Milan to celebrate with Josh. We had the best 5 days there, but jesus christ on a bike, was it hot. We arrived in the height of a 40 degree heatwave and, I have to say, I don't think either of us have ever sweated so much, or drank so much water, in our entire lives haha. What a great first holiday to remember though ♥

Fast forward to August and the OPI campaign I shot last year drops and my face is all over the new A/W19 Edinburgh collection. It was such a long wait, anticipating how the campaign would turn out, but I was so happy to finally see it all and it reminds me of one of the best jobs I've ever had the privilege of working on.


HAIR BOW - PRIMARK [GIFTED]

In August, I also made the decision to leave my modelling agency. It had been something I'd thought over and over for the last year, and I finally decided it was time to leave it behind and focus more on me for a while. It's definitely done me the world of good (and saved me a lot of money on travel haha) - it's nice to just pick and chose what I get involved in now. I love working on things more locally and experiencing modelling up north a little more. 

With the modelling contract out of the window, I decided it was time for change... on the same day... and I immediately booked a hair appointment and chopped my long ginger locks into a bob.

It felt like a new lease of life - somewhere for me to start over a bit.

"You are free to have peace without knowing what comes next"

By September, Josh and I were celebrating our 1 Year anniversary in Liverpool and I still can't believe he'd put up with me for that long! We spent 3 days indulging in all-you-can-eat breakfasts and 2 for 1 cocktails. 

He's my favourite person in the entire world and I don't know what I'd do without him. The last year wouldn't have been the same if it wasn't for him, at all. ♥

Within a week of our anniversary, we were on our way to Porto for a fleeting trip whilst I modelled for PROF. It was a short but sweet trip, but it was nice to go on another little adventure together and do a tiny bit of sight seeing. It was like our anniversary take two!


November rolled around and I got to spend the day in London with Burberry Beauty. We learnt all about the new releases, including the new Matte Glow Foundation, whilst enjoying the most delicious meal at Thomas' Cafe. We even had a quiz about London (which, obviously, as a Northerner, I lost significantly!) I felt so honored to be invited.

In all honesty - I was a very small fish in a very big pond, so I'll be forever grateful for that experience.

And well, from then, to now, it's just been go, go, go working on other projects and earning my pennies in retail so that I can afford enough espresso martinis over Christmas! 

I truly can't believe how much this year has flown by and it's definitely been a significant year for me despite the lows that have come along with the highs. I feel like I'm in a place where I can finally move forward in 2020 and really figure out who I want to be and where I want my paths to lead.

I mean, I don't have it all figured out, but I'm definitely a portion of the way there, for sure.

Here's to a happy and healthy New Year and taking each day as it comes! Cheers!

Recently, I've been in this mindset where I'm just ready to start anew. I don't know whether it's the impending new year, or just the fact that this year itself has felt a little all over the place, but I've landed in December with a head full of clear ideas and inspiration.

As I type this, there's 7 bin bags of clothes, ready and awaiting the BHF to come and collect them. I got really honest with myself and realised no person needs more than a wardrobe of clothes... well I truly don't anyway. I spent days going through everything I owned and just being really honest with myself as to whether they were pieces I was ever going to get any wear out of again - for a lot of them, I brutally had to say 'no'.


With that in mind, my wardrobe has been left in a state of just 'day-to-day' basics, which actually feels really refreshing. It's like a new beginning for me to build off of style-wise, and it's meant I've had some time to figure out what's truly missing from my collection, and what's no longer needed.

It's also meant that for the past few weeks, I've been left to re-work all of the basics in my wardrobe and find new ways for them to be styled together, which has been really fun and sparked a bit of creativity back into my everyday attire.

Take my black blazer for example. It's one of my absolute favourite finds from one of my charity shop sprees, but I always seemed to find myself styling it with your everyday jeans and trainers, which is great... but it got a little samey for me. It's been interesting to style it with skirts, trousers, knee high boots and all of the other pieces that seemed to have been collecting dust at the back of my wardrobe over the past year. It's meant that I've experimented with layering and worked with more than just that stereotypical 'androgynous' over-sized blazer look.


The mindset I'm in right now has really been helped by the de-cluttering of my possessions and stripping things back to the essentials in my wardrobe. It's really nice to not feel overwhelmed by clothes when it comes to creating looks and it's nice to finally have some time to sit back and really think about the kind of style I want my collection to exude.

If you're feeling in a rut, I totally recommend having a big clear out and stepping back to understand your style more clearly - it's a really refreshing feeling!

Also, what are some of the staples in your wardrobe? Is there something that could be missing from mine?!

Christmas is just around the corner (is anyone else prepared, because I'm not!) and with the festive season in mind, I wanted to share with you, Bobbi Brown's 2019 Christmas Collection, which is filled with all the glitzy goodness we hunt for at this time of year.

The collection is made up of lots of Luxe Indulgences, Eye Shadow Palettes and Gift Sets, all of which are perfect for getting party-ready! Today, I thought I'd show you my top favourites and let you know a little bit more about them, let's go...




I kindly received this box of goodies in the post from the lovely Bobbi Brown PR team, and I was super excited to get my hands on the new products and try them out!

The first thing that caught my eye was this amazing 'Luxe Gems Eye Shadow Palette', featuring 7 amazingly sparkly shades - some of which are matte, some are multi-chrome and the others are a rich sparkle. This is a totally great palette for creating multiple different looks - allowing you to combine matte shades and more iridescent shades to create the perfect party eye!

I adore the shades 'Electric Sapphire' and 'Incadescent' the most. The sapphire shade is not something I'd normally grab for, but it just looks so fun, bright and exciting, and I can't wait to have play around with it. I can imagine it looking great paired with a peachy lip colour and a jazzy outfit to tie it altogether too. 'Incadescent' on the other hand, is already a shade that's totally up my street. It's that perfect orangey-pink that pairs perfectly with blue eyes, and is something I can see myself wearing constantly throughout December.



Keeping on the topic of eye shadow palettes, there's also the amazing 'Love In The Afternoon' Palette, which features 8 different shades.

This is definitely one for those neutral lovers out there. This is a great day-to-day palette with it's rosy tones and delicate sparkle. I especially love the shade 'Cocktail Ring', which is that amazing gold-tone sparkly shade you can see pictured above.




Now, for the lipstick lovers of you out there, Bobbi Brown have some absolutely stunning products for you to give a whirl this year. 

We have the gorgeous Luxe Jewel Lipsick in 'Ruby Slipper', which literally had me gasping when I saw it - it's absolutely incredible. It's a jewel inspired shade (hence the name) which has a super creamy formula and pearl particles which catch the light! It's a full coverage lipstick, and is honestly just anyone's dream Christmas shade!

We also have their Luxe Liquid Lip in 'Gold Star 2' . It's the original Luxe Liquid formula but with an added sparkling finish, and in an easy-to-wear peachy gold shade. This is the best product for pairing with other lip products to add that extra bit of 'dazzle'!




The Luxe collection from Bobbi Brown is definitely one of my favourites, so it was great to find some singular eye-shadows and a powder hidden within the box for me to add to my collection. 

The Luxe Illuminating Powder in 'Golden Hour' literally looks like a comfy pillow, which, let's be honest, we'd all happily sleep on! It's a gorgeous pearlescent powder, which helps give the skin a glow along the high points of the face. It's said to be super long-lasting, which means you'll be looking and feeling glowy all day - how fab?!

The Luxe Eyeshadows came in 'Royal Sapphire' and 'Opal Moonstone'. Again, these are super fun shades which come in a 'rich gemstone' texture to give a soft, yet vibrant, look!





If you're looking for a gift set for someone, or simply just need yourself some minis for traveling around with, then there are some absolute gems here.

We have the classic Bobbi Brown Smoky Eye Mascara in a smaller 3ml size, along with some mini Luxe Lip Colours in 'Hibiscus' and 'Desert Rose'. These can come in super handy for throwing in your handbag on the go, or, like I mentioned, can be a great, more affordable gift for someone this Christmas too.

Each gift set on the Bobbi Brown site ranges from £16-£50 depending on your chosen one and are easy to find HERE.

Who'd have thought it, hey? Little ol' me getting to test out Burberry products as part of my job - what a dream come true!

Today I wanted to share with you this easy-to-wear, day-to-day look I created using solely Burberry Beauty products, including the gorgeous NEW Burberry Matte Glow Foundation.

*Burberry Beauty can be found super easily on the Feel Unique and Look Fantastic sites*


The new foundation has a matte finish, but also with a 'glow' element, that helps perfect your complexion and keep things concealed all day long, without looking 'heavy' on the skin. It's available in 30 shades, in a variety of skin tones, and contains spherical powders which keep that pesky 'shine' under control.

It's really easy to find your shade using Burberry Beauty's shade finder, where you can match yourself up based on the 'coolness' or 'warmth' of your skin.

Now, despite me not being one to usually wear foundation, I was very excited to give this a whirl, as I've recently been having a lot of breakouts that sometimes concealer alone just won't cover! I found this foundation really helps to 'perfect' the skin and feels so super soft when applied. 

I also got to test out Burberry's Cat Lashes Mascara too, which is now my go-to mascara! You can see how I created the look in the video below:

This past week or so has been a period of change for me. I've been slowly trying to find myself again - I've felt lost amongst a sea of Bali bikini photos, beautifully shot streets style, and PR events I couldn't make. I've been clinging onto this vice of comparison, and the sudden consciousness of that has been a weight lifted from my shoulders.

I feel like for a really long time, this comparison to others has completely taken over my life and my creativity. I've found myself so off-track, and panicking over what to produce and how to produce it. I've dabbled in so many different styles, yet it's always left me feeling deflated. There's always something making me think my work isn't as good, and up to scratch, as everyone else's.

I don't live in a picturesque city. There are no beautiful backdrops on my door step. It takes a lot of time to produce content if I'm choosing to shoot outdoors - time that I no longer have a lot of and that has lately been consumed by a lot of ups and downs in my own life.

This whole thing has become so obsessive to me. I can spend hours planning out an Instagram feed and 'stalking' other people to see if my work is as good as theirs. It's driven me mad - mad to the point where it's affected my joy of my job, as well as my mental health.

So, with that in mind, I'm trying to strip it back. I'm trying to focus on me, solely me, and what I'm good at. It may not be the most 'perfect' content, but it's mine. It's personal to me, my own lifestyle and I enjoy creating it.

I think that with the pressures of social media these days, it can be hard not to lose yourself. It's so difficult not to be comparing yourself to everything else that's out there. But, I just want my life to feel more lighthearted again. I just want to go back to creating what I love and enjoy doing it at the same time.

I'm just going to do 'Me', and I hope that's okay.

Reclaiming Myself From The Pressures Of Social Media


This past week or so has been a period of change for me. I've been slowly trying to find myself again - I've felt lost amongst a sea of Bali bikini photos, beautifully shot streets style, and PR events I couldn't make. I've been clinging onto this vice of comparison, and the sudden consciousness of that has been a weight lifted from my shoulders.

I feel like for a really long time, this comparison to others has completely taken over my life and my creativity. I've found myself so off-track, and panicking over what to produce and how to produce it. I've dabbled in so many different styles, yet it's always left me feeling deflated. There's always something making me think my work isn't as good, and up to scratch, as everyone else's.

I don't live in a picturesque city. There are no beautiful backdrops on my door step. It takes a lot of time to produce content if I'm choosing to shoot outdoors - time that I no longer have a lot of and that has lately been consumed by a lot of ups and downs in my own life.

This whole thing has become so obsessive to me. I can spend hours planning out an Instagram feed and 'stalking' other people to see if my work is as good as theirs. It's driven me mad - mad to the point where it's affected my joy of my job, as well as my mental health.

So, with that in mind, I'm trying to strip it back. I'm trying to focus on me, solely me, and what I'm good at. It may not be the most 'perfect' content, but it's mine. It's personal to me, my own lifestyle and I enjoy creating it.

I'm just going to do 'Me', and I hope that's okay.

So, if you can't read the title of this post without singing 'Black & Gold' by Sam Sparro, then you're on my wavelength haha.

Anyway, hello guys, how are we all?

December is fast approaching, and honestly, it's kind of stressing me out. This is usually my favourite time of year - I love food, festivities and being around my favourite people - but something is looming over me this year that is just making the whole thing feel a little.. tense... I don't know. I think it's my incessant need to please people, and the idea that I currently have ZERO idea what to gift anyone this Christmas is driving me mad. But, alas, I'm sure all will be solved (and my bank account will be emptied *cries*).

It's still exciting that it's only 6 weeks away though (probably less by the time this goes live!). I'm really looking forward to celebrating and dancing the evenings away with a glass of wine in one hand and mince pie in the other.

With that being said, I'm all about getting dressed up over the festive season. I think it's just the perfect month to make yourself feel glamorous and fabulous, whilst feeling incredible merry!



DRESS - CLOSET LONDON [GIFTED] // RINGS - MEJURI, ANIA HAIE & THOMAS SABO [GIFTED]

A new dress entered my wardrobe this week and I'm absolutely head over heels in love with it. It's this stunning Black Stripe Long Sleeve Wrap Midi Dress from Closet London.

Now, if you've followed my blog for a long time then you know that Closet London were one of the very first brands I began working with back in 2015, so they hold a very close place in my heart. I've always loved their pieces - it's one of those perfect brands that just effortlessly elegant, yet on trend all at once - but, I have to say, this is my all-time favourite piece from them. I just think it's beautiful.

From the wrap front style, to the sunburst sleeve cuffs, it just fits me like a glove and I couldn't be happier with it.


I can't wait to wear this dress out over party season. I've collected some of my other favourite LBD's for you down below!

I can't wait to wear this dress out over party season. I've collected some of my other favourite LBD's for you down below!




It's no secret that as winter rolls around, so does my ever-growing collection of knitwear. The temperature drops, and out come of cable knits and fluffy throw-ons, leaving me in a state of complete cosiness for the next 5 months.

The thing is however, I often find that styling knitwear grinds my creativity to a halt, leaving me a little lost for inspiration. I spend each day grabbing for a jumper, jeans and some boots and that's all there is to it. It's one of those things that comes with the cold weather... the laziness to style and the urgent need to be warm. 

I mean, sure, I know that if I sat there and really thought about an outfit, I could probably pull something a little more 'chic' together, but with 5am wake up calls, and windy, rainy weather to battle, I just don't have the time!

But, regardless, I've found a bit of a loop hole...




When it comes to knitwear, I usually like to play it safe with the typical neutral tones and basic black roll necks, but recently I've found myself grabbing more for colourful knits, with a bit of character and 'fun' to them - it's really helped spruce up my day-to-day looks.

This one I'm wearing here is a gem from Miss Selfridge. I absolutely love the combination of the baby blue, along with the tan brown details, and the over-sized harlequin pattern is just the perfect 'on trend' thing for this season. The high neckline is right up my street too. I'm always more in favour of a 'mensy' crew neckline than anything else.  

So, with this beautiful jumper in mind, I thought I'd pull together some of my other favourite jumpers that I've spotted recently and share them with you down below. Maybe it can help you feel more excited about your every day winter looks too!

*trigger warning*

I feel like it's been a while since I've sat here and opened up to you guys. I mean, that has been the premise of this platform for such a long time, you know? A place for me to share my experiences and put my thoughts out there into the world - a place which felt safe for me to open up. Lately however, I've found myself lost for words, with hardly anything to type out onto this blank page before me. I guess you could say I've been uninspired, had writers block, or any of the usual reasonings, but the reality is, that life has just felt very heavy as of late.

Everything from waking up in a morning, to making a cup of tea, to trying to sleep at night, has felt exhausting. All of the usual things that brought me joy seem to have faded into the background and I've just been floating about, trying to piece it all back together.

It's not an unfamiliar feeling, not at all, but the weight that it has planted on me is something comparable to an elephant being sat on my chest.


I've felt kind of alone with it all, and not because I haven't got good people around me, because I do, but more because it's such a confusing feeling to explain.

As with anything mental health related, all experiences are unique, so despite having had these feelings before, the encounter with it feels entirely different. And, well, that doesn't make it easy to explain to people how I'm feeling... especially when I barely understand it myself.

I suppose that's why I'm writing this now.

With that in mind, I guess it's difficult to explain to others how you feel when they only have their own experiences themselves to go off. I can't expect someone who's also had depression to have had the exact same timeline as me and have the answer to all of my problems. I especially can't expect the people around me to understand my eating disorders when they themselves have never had an issue like that.

It's such a complex thing, and ideally there would be one straight answer of how to fix all mental health issues, but life doesn't work that way.

It's felt confusing for a while that, when I do pluck up the guts to open up and talk to people, they don't really 'get' it. No one can really pin-point or define what I'm feeling. Honestly though, I really don't expect people to understand. It's not an easy thing for me to lay down in simple terms. I mean, it's normally a situation where I'm just blurting out suppressed emotion, so it never really makes any sense.

I think it's become easier and easier to conceal from people because of that. It feels less complicated to keep it to myself sometimes, but I know that's not the right thing to do.


To put it as plain and simple as I possibly can, right here, right now... I would say I'm somewhere amidst a relapse. I've felt unmotivated, low, anxious, unable to eat, not wanting to eat, not eating, aware of my weight, trying to lose weight, losing weight, confused, scared, and all of what's inbetween. I've felt as if I'm in some weird bubble that has managed to trap me inside and I'm really struggling to break free. I've felt completely suffocated by my own thoughts, and spend most days going back-and-forth arguing with myself over whether to eat, sleep, get dressed etc.

I mean, at first I thought I knew where this was coming from. I thought it was the same thing as always (my everlasting self loathing, of course) but there have been so many ups, downs and curve-balls this year, that there just seems to be more to it this time.

I feel a lot of things that I've felt before, like the need to starve myself or the heavy weight of depression lingering over me, but there's this underlying emptiness which I can't even define as either of those things. It feels so peculiar and confusing, that I almost feel like I'm floating above my own life.

Well, maybe I have felt it before, but just don't remember? I mean, there's a lot I don't really remember from 4 years ago.

I can feel myself falling back into old habits and thinking things I've not had to battle with in a long time. My world has become a sea of calories, weight and seeking validation again, and I keep finding myself avoiding social situations - hiding out in my house for as long as I can. It's got a sickening 'homely' feeling to it all.


The good thing, I suppose, is that I know it's happening. I always think that as long as I can feel myself falling, then there's no reason why I can't pick myself back up again. But it's always an up hill battle. It's never an easy thing to pick yourself back up and dust yourself off. I can't just click a switch in my brain and change things back to how they were - I've got to go through the whole process of reprogramming myself, and that's sometimes the most daunting part.


It feels silly to typing a lot of this, honestly. To a lot of people, my life has just been carrying on as normal, particularly if you follow me on any social media. You're probably looking at my page and thinking 'this girl's not sad!', but that's the horrible truth about the internet sometimes... the internet isn't real life, and my real life is no where near as picturesque as my Instagram account might seem.

I think it's so easy for people to just put on a smile sometimes and get on with things, I know that is for me. I just head off to work, click a switch and the 'show' begins. All my energy goes into pretending that I'm okay. I guess I've got a knack for suppressing things. But, especially when it comes to portraying myself on the internet, it's not difficult to press a couple of buttons on an app and post a happy smiley photo. I mean, 90% of the time that I've recently posted on anything, I've been lay in bed all day, crying, struggling to muster the energy to do anything else at all.

It's weird to think that you really only know so much about someone from a couple of photos on the internet. I think we all need to remember that more often.


But, yeah, I'm in a weird place right now. I'm in a limbo between completely losing myself to my thoughts, or fighting back with what little energy I do have. It's weird to know I'm aware of it, and also kind of terrifying. There are so many thoughts swirling round my head all the time, I'm not sure what to listen to.

It's felt good to get it off my chest, nonetheless... even if it is quite liberally on the internet, for whoever to see, but maybe me writing this can help someone who feels the same right now... I don't know.

If there's one thing I always lust after each and every autumn/winter, it's that perfect party piece that's going to make me feel fine and fabulous on the approach to the festive season. Whether it's a dress, a sparkly suit, or simply a cosy knit with that little bit of something extra to it, I like to feel like I've got the celebratory outfit sorted.

I wanted to bring this amazing 'Hailey' dress from LPA X Revolve to your attention, as I have just not stopped thinking about it ever since it landed on my doorstep.

This piece was kindly gifted to me by Revolve and, oh my lord, am I just over the moon with it. Everything from the polka dots, to the silky design and feathery trim is just so perfectly 'Me' and it's just a timeless, yet unique piece, I just love love love it!


DRESS - REVOLVE [GIFTED]

I had never ordered anything from Revolve before, but had always been eyeing things up and adding them to my wish-list for future 'treat-yoself' purchases. However, because of that, I really wasn't sure how the sizing would be. I got this dress in a size S, as I'm usually a UK 8, however I'd definitely say I could have probably sized down in this, only because it's a little loose on the shoulders, but other than that, it fits really comfortably and, to be honest, I'm not sure I could squeeze my booty into an XS (especially not around Festive season either lol).

A size S is probably best for me anyway - I always like my pieces to fit slightly loose, just to allow room to breathe and room to eat, and all those other daily tasks I need to get on with - I've never been one to feel my best in super tight fitting pieces!


"life is too short to wear boring dresses"

There's so many ways I could style this dress too - I can't wait to delve into trying on all the different options (as soon as someone invites me to a swanky party that is, of course). 

I picture this with some cute black heels and a black faux fur jacket for a more simple look, but can also see myself adding in pops of colour with some bold blue statement earrings and a navy duster. The possibilities are endless, and I want to try them all!


I'm so happy to have a dress like this in my collection and it's got me so excited to be heading into the colder months, ready to celebrate anything and everything (because that's what November and December are for... duh!).

Let me know what you think of this dress, and whether you've been eyeing up any new pieces ready for party season too!

Lately I've been loving our slow shift into the autumn season, and it's had me thinking about all of the pieces in my wardrobe, and what kind of things are missing in order to create the perfect transitional looks.

For me, A/W is all about layering; it's about big chunky knits and long coats, but also midi skirts and little woolen berets for the slighter warmer days too.

I love how through September - February we're able to experiment with style so much more, adding in different tones and textures, and re-working pieces from summer's past, into looks that work equally as well for chilly temperatures.

Recently, I was sent a few pieces by Nasty Gal, one of which was this gorgeous black tee dress, that has had me obsessed with planning how to style it ever since it arrived. It was just the kind of thing I had felt had been missing from my collection and it's sparked so many ideas that have me super excited to move into the next couple of months.







DRESS - NASTY GAL [GIFTED]

It's a piece that's perfect for the British Summer, you know?...not too 'little' that you're too cold, but not too 'much' that it's going to make you too warm? Yet it's also something I'd definitely want to work into my A/W wardrobe too. I guess it's just the perfect balance of everything (plus it's super comfortable and easy to throw on, what a dream!!)

This dress has had me thinking of all the different ways that simple pieces like this can be worked and styled, and it's got my brain spinning into an outfit planning frenzy.

I mean, it's nothing new to say that basic pieces are the easiest to be worn all year round, but it's a piece like this that just works so well for layering and adding textures to.

This Nasty Gal dress is a very wearable Polyester, which I know isn't everyone's favourite, but go with me here. It's an affordable price (only £15 right now... bargain!!) and can be worn loose and flowy, or be pinched in at the waist using the little material belt it comes with, or any belt for that matter. It looks chic and effortless, and you really can't go wrong with a LBD, right? It's just an easy-going, comfortable piece, with a very simple composition, which is perfect for adding to and dressing up or down.







I can picture this looking super elegant and sophisticated styled with a long navy duster coat and some heeled black boots, or if you prefer a more 'edgy' look, Dr. Martens would look amazing too. I can also see this working nicely with a chunky knit thrown over the top, and the little roll neck from the dress peeking through. The long length of the dress makes for a casual yet, put-together vibe and a beret would also be the perfect thing to channel some Parisian-chic into a look with this dress!

The beauty of it is, that this dress is just great on it's own too. As I stood shooting this, channeling my inner J-Lo and Angelina Jolie, I found I was getting so many glances (could have been because I was stood Vogue-ing in front of a library, but I'm going to put it down to the dress) and it made my very happy to know that a simple black dress is still as powerful as it always has been.

All in all, I just think tee dresses are the perfect staple for the weather we're having right now. Whether it's 21 degrees one day, or 13 the next, it's the kind of piece that's going to be easy to throw on and work around.

It was just the kind of thing I had felt had been missing from my collection and it's sparked so many ideas that have me super excited to move into the next couple of months.







DRESS - NASTY GAL [GIFTED]

It's a piece that's perfect for the British Summer, you know?...not too 'little' that you're too cold, but not too 'much' that it's going to make you too warm? Yet it's also something I'd definitely want to work into my A/W wardrobe too. I guess it's just the perfect balance of everything (plus it's super comfortable and easy to throw on, what a dream!!)

This dress has had me thinking of all the different ways that simple pieces like this can be worked and styled, and it's got my brain spinning into an outfit planning frenzy.

I mean, it's nothing new to say that basic pieces are the easiest to be worn all year round, but it's a piece like this that just works so well for layering and adding textures to.

This Nasty Gal dress is a very wearable Polyester, which I know isn't everyone's favourite, but go with me here. It's an affordable price (only £15 right now... bargain!!) and can be worn loose and flowy, or be pinched in at the waist using the little material belt it comes with, or any belt for that matter. It looks chic and effortless, and you really can't go wrong with a LBD, right? It's just an easy-going, comfortable piece, with a very simple composition, which is perfect for adding to and dressing up or down.







I can picture this looking super elegant and sophisticated styled with a long navy duster coat and some heeled black boots, or if you prefer a more 'edgy' look, Dr. Martens would look amazing too. I can also see this working nicely with a chunky knit thrown over the top, and the little roll neck from the dress peeking through. The long length of the dress makes for a casual yet, put-together vibe and a beret would also be the perfect thing to channel some Parisian-chic into a look with this dress!

The beauty of it is, that this dress is just great on it's own too. As I stood shooting this, channeling my inner J-Lo and Angelina Jolie, I found I was getting so many glances (could have been because I was stood Vogue-ing in front of a library, but I'm going to put it down to the dress) and it made my very happy to know that a simple black dress is still as powerful as it always has been.

All in all, I just think tee dresses are the perfect staple for the weather we're having right now. Whether it's 21 degrees one day, or 13 the next, it's the kind of piece that's going to be easy to throw on and work around.
