new home, new start

I made it, I'm in. Finally, after a long 8 week wait, I've made the move to London ready to start my new job at ASOS, tomorrow! I just wanted to thank you all for how supportive you've been over the last 6 months, I had my life turned upside down and I've never felt so sad. People always say 'Things fall apart so that better things can come together' and my goodness, they are right. My life 6 months ago feels like it wasn't even me! I can't believe how much I've changed and made everything I've ever wanted happen. It's so surreal. 
I'm living with my super mate, Louisa, who has impeccable taste, so I've fallen on my feet with both Lou and this beautiful flat. So here are a few details from our home.

I hope you're all having a great start to the week and that you had a wonderful weekend.
Thank you all so much again.

Miss Selfridge Denim Style Ambassador

 On Friday I was very lucky to be invited to attend a styling session at Miss Selfridge in the Trafford Centre, Manchester. The team asked me to be the Ambassador for the 'Lizzie' super skinny ripped up jean. Of course, I said, heck yes! It was an amazing experience and Lucy the stylist was the bomb. I chose very typical pieces, monochrome, clean and layering. I went for a bit of a wild card (for me...) which is the light denim dress, but then I quickly popped a striped top underneath to steer clear of any girly vibes. Miss S have got some beautiful transitional pieces in at the moment and the jeans I chose have unfinished, frayed edges and I'm a little bit in love with them! I'll be posting more of the pieces soon but I just wanted to share this experience with you. It would be so lovely to attend a styling session with friends or your mum.

Casual layers

Dare I say that the weather is on the turn to Spring!? I'd better not, just in case. All I'm going to say is that I am really enjoying wearing my sunglasses. 
I shot this outfit last week when I was back in Preston catching up with one of my best mates, Luisa of astylishsomething.com. We did what we usually do when I visit and that's laugh at the kids because they are kerazy and amazing and drink lots of coffee. 
I've flat out fallen in love with a few of the pieces I'm wearing in this outfit, firstly, the neoprene wrap bomber by Finders Keepers and the grey Jaggar crossing jumper. I was lucky enough to be sent these pieces all the way from my favourite place on earth, Australia. The amazing Lucy at Fashion Bunker let me choose these pieces to take and wear to London Fashion Week, but the postman did not get the memo! These brands are by far two of my absolute go-to's, they always get basics spot on with a twist and they are amazing at bridging that gap between high street and high end.
My next favourite piece is of course, my brand spanking new Michael Kors bag, sent to me by the incredible store that is Harvey Nichols  Just look at that incredible shade of Orange! I will not be seen without this bag for the foreseeable future, and since I wear a lot of muted tones usually, this bag is going to pick up those tones beautifully. 
I finished my outfit off with my staple ASOS Girlfriend jeans and muted Zara boots to dress up my casual look.
