Spring Fresh

'The more you leave out, the more you highlight what you leave in.'
- Henry Green

Sometimes the best outfits are the most simple outfits. It was a pleasant spring afternoon, the sun was shining (for most part) and the temperature permitted a coat/jacket free ensemble. It was Mothers Day and I headed down to see my mum, as one does. I wasn't going anywhere fancy so decided to keep my outfit pretty simple, crisp and neat. I teamed up a white blazer with a silky white camisole and my new blue jeggings. I decided to add a splash of colour with the lime green tote and matched it to my bargain find - tan and lime green sandals. I finished off the look with gold jewellery and a dab of mocha lip gloss. 

Blazer - Forever 21
Camisole - ASOS
Choker - Zara
Earrings - Topshop
Jeggings - H&M
Bag - Michael Kors
Sandals - eBay

Warehouse Fashion Shooters Festival

This time last week, along with photographer Gerrod Charles (of Gerrotography) and Beauty and Lifestyle Blogger Jasmin (of Just Lovely Little Things), I attended the Warehouse Fashion Shooter Festival - a free event for Fashion bloggers and Photographers at The Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane, East London. Offering sweet treats and tasty nibbles, whilst playing some really cool tunes (music provided by DJ Whinnie Williams), together with Elle, Toni and Guy and Wah Nails, Warehouse put together a fantastic event, offering visitors plenty of freebies and a look at some of their new Spring Summer 2014 collection. As you can expect with any free fashion event the venue was buzzing, full of fashion lovers and aspiring photographers. 

It was a great opportunity for people to get their hair done by Toni and Guy, get a funky manicure by Wah Nails, design and print a bespoke T-shirt with YrStore, feature in their own Flick Book, amongst many other things... all for free. It was well worth attending, especially since I spotted an amazing baby pink mac to add to my growing wardrobe... unfortunately it's not yet online or in store - but at least I got the heads up on what will be released in the coming weeks. 

Check out my photos from the event...

It's coming to the end of the month and for many of us that means one thing, yes... pay day... 'tick tock tick tock', counting down the few days remaining. I've seen quite a few fantastic finds on the high street throughout the month, some I've resisted and others I've just had to buy. I thought I'd put together a little list of treats that you can spend your hard earned cash on come pay day. I usually do this quite frequently, but haven't done one for a while... my apologies (I'll now be doing them on a monthly basis). I'm sure you'll forgive me, as I've listed some of the hottest finds currently available both on the web and on the high street.
