Native Youth Womenswear Drop

Native Youth have rapidly become one of the brands I'm most excited to get my hands on this SS15. Scandi notes and clean lines in perfect palettes, who wouldn't? Just look at this lookbook. The designers have taken inspiration from art, photography and contemporary culture to create nothing short of one heck of a collection for SS15. One of the things I love most about the collection is its androgynous twist, perfect for those among you who would rather wear some killer heels with an oversized silhouette.
The collection mirrors the menswear collection perfectly, I like to think of it as a 'his & hers' brand. Perfect.

So keep your eyes on Native Youth and await their SS15 drop

Thanks so much for reading.
I'm off to New York on Thursday so I'll be blogging during my time there. You can keep your eye on my Instagram @ropesofholland but I warn you, it'll be filled with excited NY city posts!

Loitering in LDN

I've just returned home from the most incredible few days in London with one of my besties, Megan, better known as ASOS Megan or Pagesbymegan.com. She's my Mancunian love and I miss her loads now she's down South. I also got to meet her little sis, Faye, or Fellaby as I like call her- she's also a bloody love.
There was an additional reason I've been down in London but, I can't tell you anything until next week! It's all a bit mental but if my gut serves me right, it's going to be amazing. I just thought I'd share a few snaps from my time and outfits down there and wish you a mega weekend.

Thank you so much for reading.
Have an awesome Saturday night. I'll be in bed.

That fur bomber

All hail ASOS and the incredible collection that is ASOS White. This fur bomber is what my actual dreams are made of and I'm practically living in it at the moment. Not to bang on about New York, which is next week by the way... but I picked it up with the snowy NYC weather in mind. You can literally pair it with anything and I think it's the best faux fur jacket I've seen out there. So if you happen to spot a bear like creature with blonde hair, it's probably just me. I popped on my trusty Adidas Stan Smith's with my bargainous £5 pinstripe trousers from H&M sale to finish off this look.

I hope you're all making it through the week and have some lovely plans this weekend. I'm off to London tomorrow for a long weekend. Thanks so much for reading and a big hello to my newest reader, Tom.

Dr Martens and Dresses

Happy Monday! So I've finally got my hands on some Dr Martens. What impresses me is that on the sole it reads "oil proof". Excellent. I wanted these ones especially for New York because I'm going to walk miles and need to be A. warm (it's been -9 degrees for the last few days) and B. comfortable. I've slowly been building up my empire of chunky knits, layers and sturdy footwear to tackle the cold when I get to New York...this has become my excuse for excessive orders and the ASOS delivery man saying to my dad "you must have the best dressed daughter in Stockport". And then I answered the door to him myself this morning, in my onesie, so he probably thought again on the 'best dressed' thing. Anyway, I absolutely love my Tom-boy twist here and I can't stop wearing this ASOS White knit dress, it's in the sale and you absolutely need it.

Have a lovely Monday! It can't be that bad...and you're already one day closer to the weekend.
