OUTFIT | ALEXANDRA


I've really been digging the dress and converse pairing all over again despite getting major flashbacks to my teenage years. I did have to spend every single day for the last two months in trainers as I injured my foot and I'm happy that their surge in popularity meant that I wasn't restricted with what I could wear them with. After recently falling for the wrap dress trend, I decided to treat myself to the OG of all wrap dresses, a Realisation Par dress. I went for their Alexandra style in navy star print though their backless styles also caught my eye (maybe next time). I don't own many real silk dresses so this one feels extra lovely and luxurious against my skin.

I've almost fully recovered from the flu now and have thrown myself back into a busy work week, and this weekend is London Film & Comic Con where I'll be attending and cosplaying all three days so I feel like I'll barely have time to stop and breathe. If you're going to be there and spot me in my Jyn Erso costume, please do say hello!

OUTFIT | LACE UP


This is an outfit I wore to a gig recently. It's the first time I'd put on skinny jeans in ages as I now much prefer a straight leg or more vintage silhouette in a much thicker denim. However there's no denying skinny jeans that contain a substantial amount of elastane make them so much more comfortable to bend around in. So this pair of lace up Jamie jeans from Topshop reintroduced the black skinny back into my wardrobe. The tie detail definitely adds a fresh touch to such a staple piece and also eliminates any fly zip bulges. And this bardot top... is actually a body! So there's none of that annoying untucking of your top when you're dancing around. Do you have a go-to, fail-safe gig ensemble?

OUTFIT | MALONE

You know the gingham obsession has ultimately peaked when you start wearing multiple versions of the checkered print at once. I was instantly attracted to this dress with it's haphazard patchwork of different gingham print sizes and it's off-centre, slanted button down feature. It looks rather crazy but in a subtle way if you see what I mean. It works perfectly for the British summertime and I'm looking forward to transitioning it into autumn too (yes I'm certain gingham will stick around for yet another season). I'm currently sat typing this as I try to come down from the high of attending the Dunkirk premiere (please do watch my vlog if you haven't already, because it was such an amazing day), but at the same time I'm feeling pretty poorly as I've managed to catch the flu. Thinking back, the last time I was sick was in February after the BAFTAs so I should've learnt my lesson by now that camping outside on the street from 3am in the morning doesn't necessarily agree with my body. Yet I'd probably still do it all over again. The way I look at it is that I should just try harder at maintaining a healthy lifestyle to hopefully boost my immune system. Anyway this fever is not helping me think so I'm going to leave this one short and sweet. I'm planning to see Dunkirk on Friday, the day of it's release here in the UK, and let me tell you I haven't been this excited for a film in a long time. I could honestly cry just thinking about it. It's the whole Inception/The Dark Knight Rises reunion that I've been waiting for. And if that weren't enough to feed my geeky side this week, Game of Thrones has just started up again! Aaaaaahhhhhhhhh *fangirls off into the distance*

OUTFIT | NOT A RAPPER


I feel like the slogan tee has been trying to make a comeback for a while now but it was the moment that Dior debuted their SS17 collection, the first by a female designer at the brand, with a white t-shirt emblazoned with "We should all be feminists", that the trend really took off, spawning apparel that signalled girl power every direction you turned on the high street. Whilst I've always been a fan of styling basic tees with a more statement bottom, they've usually been more of the graphic print variety (shout out to the pile of Star Wars tees in my wardrobe). I just don't think I've felt hip enough to walk around with a witty or opinionated statement on my chest, I'd constantly wonder if people understood it, I mean, I don't even get half the slogan tees going around nowadays. However, upon spotting this "I'm not a rapper" top on the likes of Kendall Jenner and Chiara Ferragni, I thought it was too funny to pass up. Especially since I've suddenly become a bit of a rap music expert (see post here and apply sarcasm). I paired the black tee with a gingham (surprise surprise, the obsession is still going strong) trouser from ASOS that fits quite nicely due to it's tie waist, even if it does remind me of a picnic blanket. Accessories-wise, I took this Porky Pig bag I found in the Zara sale. I didn't realise that Zara had ever come out with a Loony Tunes collection and I can't say I'm really a fan of the cartoon anyway but I thought this would work well as the 'nude' bag I'd been missing from my wardrobe essentials whilst still possessing that quirky edge I constantly crave. I've also massively been into statement, dangly earrings these days, I love putting on a glitzy pair with a more casual outfit and playing with the whole juxtapositioning. The only thing is, they do tend to get heavy after a while and my ears ache so I've been guilty of whipping them off and stuffing them in my handbag only half way through the day.

OUTFIT | MARIE


Aristocats was one of my favourite Disney films growing up and Marie is my spirit animal so when Lazy Oaf released this top as part of their collaboration with Disney, I was all heart eyes. Didn't help that it was pink, you know all too well how obsessed I've been with this shade recently. I won't talk about the jeans and shoes because they've featured way too many times on this blog (I've even had to alternate outfit posts and stagger them out of chronological order as I'd be in the same pair of jeans in consecutive posts, oops). I'm definitely missing blossom season, I'm not cut out for this summer weather that everyone's been raving about, it's just too hot for me. Like I really wanted to stick to a weekly YouTube upload schedule and put up a video every Sunday but the fact that my filming room aka bedroom has felt quite similar to a sauna this past week has kinda put me off and made me a bit lazy. That style evolution video will still be coming (just a little later) and I might be at the Dunkirk premiere next week so I'll try my best to vlog it if I do end up going. Words can't describe how excited I am for that film seriously, Inception is my favourite film of all the time so anything that involves a collaboration between Christopher Nolan, Hans Zimmer, Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy is just a dream come true for me!
