Welcome to my new  ‘Street Style Series’ log- a way for me to document and collect in a gallery style way my favourite styles and outfits of each month and a half. I don’t like to bombard my Instagram with too style shots (famous last […]

October-Puffing Out

October-Puffing Out

“Puffing Out” is my tribute to the style essential this winter. Of course, the Puffa Jacket. Nobody needs telling twice right now how popular they are, coming in so many styles and colours you’d be a fool not to snap one up this season. In this post you can also see two other style must-haves taking over everybody’s instragram feeds at the moment. Camo items and the widely admired black and white ‘Old Skool’ Vans. Go on, have a look!

*Exploring Bath* JESSYLAW x LAMODA pt.2

I’ve said it before, I’m saying it now, and I’m sure I’ll say it a million times more. But I just love LAMODA! So it is with joy that I share with you guys my LAMODA collaboration, part 2! Featuring little me, the city of Bath, and a few of my new favourite accessories. If you’re looking for affordable fashion accessories online then you need to check out LAMODA!  right away as there just isn’t anywhere else out there dedicated to giving you the latest on trend accessories at such an affordable price.  For this outfit, I decided to try something little different than my usual look.

July- Camo Kid

July- Camo Kid

This season, camouflage style garments have made a warmly welcomed comeback. They can be seen everywhere (ironic considering camouflage’s original purpose don’t you think *cringe wink face emoji appropriate here*… ) I am definitely not complaining though, as who doesn’t want to try and replicate the sexy camo outfits in the Destiny’s Child video circa 2001, am I right! 13 year old me who was a huge Bey fan would be extremely glad I was embracing the camo trend all these years later.

JESSYLAW x MISSGUIDED Faux Leather Jacket

Now, I have been searching for the perfect Faux Leather Jacket for what feels like a lifetime. So, you can imagine just how happy (and relieved!) I was to stumble across this beaut online. From the ever popular online store Missguided, I eagerly waited the arrival of this jacket, preparing myself for the possibility that it might not actually be what I had been searching for all this time. I have to be honest.. this jacket blew all my preconceived hopes and dreams (lol) out the window. It’s not just what I have been looking for, its more. (more…)
