Style: Vans Originals

VANS 7 VANS 2 VANS 3 VANS 8 VANS 1VANS 4 VANS 5


I haven't worn a pair of Vans since I was in year 8 and thought Paul Frank t shirts constituted as fashion, but I've got to admit I'm loving them all over again. A truly classic style in the perfect monochrome colour way. This Zara top has definitely had its cost per wear, I'm not bored of off-the-shoulder tops *yet* and this style is one of my faaaaves although it's probably floating around in the depths of the Zara sale now. I popped in there today and it was far too chaotic and messy for my liking.

I've been on a holiday shopping mission this week, after finding it near-on IMPOSSIBLE to find beachwear that ticks all of my boxes. It all tends to be super colourful or overly embellished, and after trawling 28343 websites I finally found a few pieces which I can't wait to take away with me. A holiday is SO needed right now. It's been about six weeks since my latest trip which doesn't seem a lot but I get itchy feet pretty quickly. Oh how I wish I could pack a bag and head off to America on a one way ticket! Maybe someday. 

I've tried to make it my mission this year to go away every other month, even if it's just a weekend break. So far, so good! I've ticked off York, Berlin and Madrid so far, and I'll be heading off to Sicily very soon. Once you start hitting your mid twenties life seems to just disappear before your eyes, which is why I think I'm making more effort to plan trips and weekends away. I want to fill my years with as many fun memories as possible. Now to book my September trip! Any ideas?

Style: 3 Minimalist Pieces to Add to Your Wardrobe This Summer

asos cami slip

In a season known for its bright hues, bold prints, and whimsical accents, there’s something to be said for taking a minimalist approach to fashion. Neutral shades strike a cool balance with all of summer’s vibrant colours, while clean lines offer a welcome contrast to more unstructured silhouettes. Perhaps best of all, simple styles provide the ideal foundation on which to build a variety of ensembles, whatever the time of year. Supplement your wardrobe with these crisp, classic pieces that are perfect for the summer season and beyond...

The Slip Dress

A well-known fashion essential of the 90s, the slip dress is experiencing a major revival this season, winning it a place in our wardrobes (and my heart) forever. Despite becoming one of the season’s most popular trends, the slip dress has real staying power, and it’s easy to see why. The simple style is ridiculously comfortable, incredibly flattering on any figure, and wearable on a variety of occasions. To make for the most versatile slip dress, choose one in a neutral hue, timeless fabric, and demure midi length, like the ones Lyst is highlighting. Then, wear solo, or pair with a long sleeveless vest in a similar shade for a seamless, monochromatic finish. Perfect!

asos culottes
Culottes

Admittedly a bit of a tricky garment to wear (but one of my absolute summer staples), culottes are well worth the extra time it may take to style them. Choose a chic black pair you love and wear with casual staples for a more casual approach to the piece. Pair with a cotton tee and simple slides, or, as The Cut suggests, add slip-on sneakers for an easy weekend look. But, in the end, if culottes just aren’t for you, swap them out for the timeless black cigarette pants for an equally on-point ensemble.

The Wrap Skirt

If the pencil skirt had a more playful sister, the wrap skirt would be her. Combining timeless, conservative style with a flirty twist, this staple works for nearly any occasion, from the office to after-work cocktails. Choose one with a hem that falls either right above or a few inches below the knee for ultimate versatility. From there, it’s all above fabric and colour. Shades of cream, camel, and black feel luxurious and work well for all seasons – take this style wrap skirt into the summer by pairing with a lightweight white top. Or, for a neutral that’s a bit unexpected, opt for a wrap skirt in a pale pink or blush colour. The Zoe Report reveals that the pretty hue is polished enough for the office yet transitions effortlessly into nighttime festivities.

Will you be adding any of these minimal style pieces to your wardrobe this summer?

Travel: 5 Airbnb's With Dreamy Interiors

So I spend a considerable amount of time researching cities I want to visit, checking out flight prices, looking into cool places to stay and just generally thinking about escaping the UK for a few days. I thought I'd put my research into time well spent and create a little blog post featuring a few of the airbnb's I am dying to stay in!

I've never actually booked accommodation via airbnb before, no particular reason other than I always tend to use Travel Republic to get my flights and hotel in one booking. You are a little restricted with hotels when it comes to getting the right location and the perfect decor. I've said it before, but the interior of a place is really quite important to me. I want it to match my personal tastes, i.e say NO to red bedding and hello to calming neutrals.

So here a few apartments that I've been eyeing up! I'll be verrrry jealous if you book one...


Apparently this gets booked up pretty quickly, and it's easy to see why! Advance booking is definitely necessary but what a gorgeous apartment! Based in the lively area of Vesterbro this Nordic styled dream is right up my street. Major future home inspo. 



2. Stockholm - Catarina's Place

Realistically, I probably won't get to visit this gem unless travelling with a group BUT it is seriously impressive. Worth rounding up a few friends for a fun weekend away. It's quite pricey, but as I said if there's a few of you going then it doesn't work out too bad. Light, airy and spacious.

3. Lisbon - Jorge's Place

I've been wanting to visit Lisbon for SO long, and hopefully I'll get round to booking a trip either towards the end of the summer or for next spring. I was quite surprised at how cheap the rates were on most of the airbnb's here - bonus!

4. Amsterdam - Nicola's Place

As if this place was't gorgeous enough, it also features a roof terrace, pretty cool! The apartment is scattered with lots of plants which I love, and it accommodates up to four people which is handy if you're heading away with another couple or with a few mates.

5. Budapest - Snezana's Place

My house in Budapest....I'll stop. So this is cute! I had a look at staying here in September and it's £49 a night! Isn't that mental?! I have definitely bumped Budapest up to the top of my city break list and this apartment is perfection.

Style: Shopping With Octer

octer blog post 3 octer blog post 5 IMG_9885 octer blog post 4 octer blog post 2 octer blog post 6 octer blog post 7

Warehouse Jacket via Octer* / Weekday Tee / River Island Trousers / Office Bow Slip Ons / Zara Tote / Quay Sunglasses

Oh hey! So I'm back in my usual OOTD 'spot' with a couple of new purchases. First of all - the shoes, the SHOES. I died and went to shoe heaven when I spied these in Office. Usually, Cambridge gets a really sh*t selection of merchandise. I never find the items I want in H&M, Zara or the rest. So when I saw these lingering around on the bottom shelf of a stand I dived in. I've wanted a pair of formal slip ons, AND a pair of shoes with a bow/knot so these were pretty much perfect.

Another newbie in my wardrobe is this gorgeous longline denim jacket via Octer. If you haven't head of Octer yet then make sure you head on over and have a little look. I suppose a good way to describe them is an 'online marketplace' with a curated selection of some of the best bits online! It's an easy way to compare categories, for example 'Spring jackets' and you can browse the best matches on the web! As if I needed *more* encouragement to shop. 



So today I don't have much planned, I thought it might be a good idea to take a few hours out to plan some blog posts, as I haven't really had much time recently to stop and think. I know that sounds kinda odd but you know when you're just so busy you almost forget to breathe? If you have any ideas for new blog posts or want to see something (whether it be interning, my university experience, being a veggie - I don't know?!) let me know!
