The Sole Women’s Collab

I’m so excited to write about my collaboration with The Sole Women’s; a social media platform which finds the best trainer releases online and shows you where to buy them. They originated from The Sole Supplier – the hugely popular men’s version of The Sole Women’s.

When they asked me if I wanted to do a shoot with them, showcasing both my style and their’s to create a Style Guide for the launch of their new site, I couldn’t wait. It was a sick chance, for myself, to connect with a platform I had followed for a long time (not to mention create some new and exciting content – something I love to do!)

I was asked to bring a few of my own clothing items to the shoot, which demonstrated my own style. These pieces would be mixed with the team’s take on how best to style the trainers which we were creating a style guide for – The Nike M2K Tekno’s in Black.

If you wanna see how we styled the Nike M2K’s and read my interview, finding out a bit about my experience on blogging, being a fashion student and owning a small business, please check out the link below!

The Prawn Shop

I’ve teamed up with The Prawn Shop to showcase just one of the many sick designs which this booming independent business, from Leeds, has to offer!

I’m wearing the, “Are You Okay?” tee, hand-drawn by the brand owner herself; all of Georgia’s unique designs explore important current social issues, such as body diversity, equality, feminism and consent. These are illustrated through the exciting use of bright, bold and colourful graphic design.

A statement t-shirt can be worn with any pair of bottoms and trainers, for a casual day-time look. I’ve paired mine up with some red Kappa trackies and my white velcro Stan Smiths!

Grey Camo

Repping some grey camo in the basement. Co-ord is from Missguided but sold out in most sizes a lot of the time. I reeeeally liked the grey and red so if you can get your hands on it – do!

Exploring The Saatchi Gallery in my 80s Red Bomber

This faux leather red bomber is soo dank. I’m loving the 80s vibe the jacket emits, paired with the retro, oversized black oval sunglasses. Both items from ASOS by the way! I matched this piece with an all black outfit because, as you can probably tell, I love a pop of colour. This outfit works particularly well – in my opinion – because the red jacket really appears to be the statement piece in this fit. The colour appears more vibrant amongst the black, but white would work well too.

I got a size 8 because, although the bomber is oversized anyway, I wanted it particularly big! Jess Woodley is a huge style inspiration of mine, and she pulls off a huge vintage black leather bomber so well.

A Pop of Colour

Hellooooo – here are photos of my most recent purchases from Urban Outfitters, matched with (finally) a new tee from Stussy’s SS17 new stuff. I tucked the tee in to the high-waisted mini skirt and threw on some fishnets to finish off the look.

There was a yellow denim skirt from Topshop which I had my eye on for ages, but they never had my size in stock, so I found this lime-coloured skirt, with a cute white stitch, which I ended up loving even more – so I had to buy it! (there’s me trying to justify purchases with white stitching… okurrrr b)

I had also been searching for a red mini backpack for ages, and I couldn’t find one apart from a vintage one which was selling on Depop. However, I was reluctant to buy it because I was determined to try it on with an outfit before buying, when I came across this one from Urban Outfitters. Dickies is such a good quality brand and very affordable – I love it eeee.

Thanks for reading!

Ellesse meets Adidas

Looooook at Ellesse’s new drop on ASOS – their mint green velour (or velvet, whatever you prefer) t-shirt is now mine, alongside Adidas’ new iconic black bottoms in the form of wide legs trousers. They’re a dream.

I’ve needed to find some new t-shirts for a while now but I have been reluctant to spend £40 on a new Stussy or Polar t-shirt, so when I found this Ellesse tee for £25 I knew it was gonna be mine. Yummmmm.

Also, I live in black trousers. I had been meaning to find some cool sportswear ones for a while and then I also clocked Adidas had a new drop of these on ASOS, they were also mine – obviously leaving me with no money, therefore no way to live at university. Oh welllll.

Stussy Staple

These photos are taken from tiiiiime ago but I forgot to make a post on this shoot! Oops. Here are some photos of my staple Stussy t-shirt; my go-to outfit is a tee and jeans or baggy trousers so this is literally all I wear to uni and when I’m out and about. I enjoy dressing like a boy, it’s so easy…
