Night time dressing in Las vegas with Zalando

Welcome to part two of my Zalando collaboration in Las Vegas. Today I'm sharing my night time look. How incredible is this dress by Cameo Collective? I am pretty obsessed with Australian labels and Zalando stock all of my favourites. This dress was so prefect for my final night in Vegas. I went to see Cirque Du Soleil, and I've never seen it before. It was absolutely incredible. I held my breath for parts and filled up with tears at others! Then the entire party of twenty two of us all met up to say goodbye to Vegas afterwards…we even played beer pong, and for the record, I am terrible at beer pong and I wouldn't recommend you play it unless you've got a great arm.

I was feeling pretty good in this dress, and these shoes by Sol Sana couldn't have been more perfectly matched. They're so comfortable and I really love the high straps and rose gold details. Also, I've worn them with my cut off Levi's and my God, they look amazing with light denim.

I don't need to tell you guys just how amazing Zalando is, again, or do I? Well, it is and the sooner you find your way around your favourite brands on Zalando, the better!

I really hope you've enjoyed this two part collaboration as much as I loved shooting it for you!

Getting that H20 on board at London Fashion Week with Brita Water

September saw Fashion Month kick off in a big way this season. I was away in Las Vegas (I know, boring now) as it began but I landed in time to catch the last day of London Fashion Week. Severely jet lagged and wondering what day it was, planet I was on and how I'd managed to leave the house…I headed into Soho to catch the last but certainly not the least of the presentations and with that, had a helping hand from Brita water. For those of you that don't know, I'm a Physiotherapist, and high up on my priority list is looking after myself and drinking plenty of water. You don't need me to tell you just how important it is to drink plenty of water, from skin to energy levels, it's all very wonderful for you! A collaboration with Brita water couldn't have been more welcome this Fashion Week post long haul trip- How to stay hydrated during the busiest time ever? Yes please Brita. The bottle I carried with me all day has a built in filter so you can fill it up with tap water as you go.

The wonderful team at Comb shot this look straight outta The Apartment, which by the way, is how I came to wear this incredible Edit jumper.

You can shop my look below…including my super duper Brita water bottle. Get into that H20.

Magpie on the run x Ropes of Holland at London Fashion Week

During London Fashion Week I was lucky enough to work with one of my favourite jewellery stores; Magpie on the run. They stock some of my favourite minimalist handmade jewellery designers from across the globe so when I had the opportunity to work with them, I obviously jumped out of my Las Vegas jet lag to say a huge 'yes please!'. Magpie on the run is one of the best destinations to shop for jewellery that's not just trend led, and for pieces that inspire you and that you can cherish. I chose three rings to wear at London Fashion Week (you're shocked, I know) I adore rings and wear as many as I can fit at any one time. 
First up is the triangular gold ring with a green quartz stone by Kirstie Maclaren who is actually the most wonderful girl as well as designer! She's killing it with her art deco collection and statement pieces. You can shop the mini Smithson ring here.
 Next up, we've got two delicate, minimal rings by Delusions of Grandeur. I chose a silver and a gold one to stack together. The silver is a flat, 3D diamond shape that actually matches a tattoo I have, so it was a no brainer really. The second ring is really delicate and comes in gold. It has a loose triangle that moves freely around the ring and it's just so perfect as a stacking ring. Shop the silver diamond shaped ring here and the gold triangle ring here.
I was also pretty flattered to be asked to be a 'Magpie Muse' so here's my interview with the team over on their wonderful blog.
I hope you've enjoyed this piece in collaboration with Magpie on the run. You should absolutely give them a follow on Instagram for some jewelled goodness @magpieontherun.

Daytime dressing in Las Vegas with Zalando

For those of you that don't know (have you been living under a rock because I have not stopped banging on about it….) I have just returned home from the most incredible week away in Las Vegas. Twenty two of us flew out there to watch my best friend get married and I cannot tell you just how perfect it all was- I was the Maid of Honour and if I could make that a full time job, I would.

We had so much we wanted to do whilst we were out there so I explored an awful lot, so much so, that my legs are aching as I sit here writing this…that strip is LONG. The wonderful people at Zalando kindly kitted me out so I could show you my day to night time looks in Vegas. If you haven't shopped on Zalando before, firstly, why? and secondly, it's brimming with so many incredible brands that you absolutely couldn't go wrong. Even their own brand collection is pretty great. So as I was choosing my pieces; FYI the selection of Scandi brands they carry is unrivalled, I found this dream shirt dress. I hadn't really looked at the weather in Vegas, it was a cool 39 degrees pretty much every day so you can imagine how long I lasted in this dress. 

It's by Baum Und Pfergarten and I think I'm pretty much in love. As I was heading out to shoot this look, an American guy and his girlfriend stopped me in the casino to say "wow, I love that shirt" so I pottered off all happy. To keep this daytime look really relaxed I put on my Old School Vans which are also from Zalando. They are so comfortable that I pretty much disowned all of my sandals, especially with all the walking we were doing.

You can shop my full look below via Zalando:

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you're having a great week! The night time look will be coming later this week.

Aida Shoreditch Edit part 3, London

Here we have my third and final Edit with Aida Shoreditch in our series of 'Tomboy dressing'. This look is both mine and Rowan, the super love stylist at Aida's favourite look, which is why we saved it until now. Even the video we made over on Instagram is our fave. Partly, for me, because I don't sound AS rough a Northerner as in the previous ones.
This outfit makes it into the top of the three for a couple of reasons. Don't worry, I'll talk you through them now;

-Oversized goodness. Look! Just look at how these pieces fit.
-Blue hues. Denim and more denim. 
-Some of my most coveted Scandi brands.
-Shot in grimey Shoreditch

Again, because Rowan is amazing, she's sorted you out with a full edit —> here and you can shop everything I'm wearing in store or online.

I hope you've enjoyed our mini series and I've got something super exciting coming up with Aida in the very near future!

I'm currently in Las Vegas watching my best friend get married, so I'm probably full of love and champagne as you read this! Have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for reading.

Denim edit: Waven

Denim, well, light denim has fast become somewhat of a uniform for me lately. I don't know when, I don't know how, but I find myself scouring all kinds of places for the perfect wash. Whether that's in jeans or a denim jacket, I'm there. I was lucky enough to work with one of my favourite denim brands, Waven, on a little edit for you and I can safely say that I have lived in this jacket ever since.

Waven are a British brand, from right here in London, made with incredible Japanese denim. I chose this jacket because I adore the oversized look and raw finish. It works perfectly over basic t-shirts with some black denim for a laid back look. Of course I popped on my black converse for a super casual look, I live in them these days. Comfort over heels any day of the week please.
Denim jackets are a funny one, if you ask me. I've always struggled with how to wear them and how I like them to fit. I'm tall, so I always go for something that's a little more oversized and less cropped. This jacket is super soft and works with your body, instead of that awful rigid denim you have to 'wear in'. Nobody has time for that...

Waven are so incredibly priced for such wonderful quality. I've got a pair of straight leg jeans that I can't wait to show you either. In the meantime, head over and check out their new season because it's amazing, I promise you.

Moeez, the angel photographer from Comb shot this look and he's the bees knees. If you don't already know about Comb, it basically an app to help you track down that one piece you can't find. Take a photo of what you're looking for, upload it into the app and voila…Comb will find it for you.

Thank you so much for reading and have the best Thursday. It's my last day in work today and I couldn't be happier because I get to jet off to Las Vegas on Sunday!
