Green Velvet

So my new bomber jacket deserves a post in its honour.

A new purchase from french designer, Sandro – bright forest green, soft velvet and delicate gold detailing. There was no questioning, it was a must have.

The colour is incredible, it positively gleams when it catches the sun. It also screams 80s vibes, with oversized arms and a gathered black waist. I am totally in love.

Reformation x Monochrome

As you know, Monochrome dressing is my favourite thing ever. I am obsessed with everything black and white (as my outfits often show!)

However the other thing I love, is black and white with a splash of bold colour. And this jacket does the perfect job. Its from The Reformation, which is an incredibly cool, eco-friendly label with stores in LA and NYC – my 2 favourite places. Their slogan ?

We make killer clothes that don’t kill the environment.

Now that’s my kind of designer. They make clothes that are effortlessly cool and elegant, with clean cut lines and flattering tailoring. Luckily for us Brits, they deliver worldwide – for free! And you can find them here.

As for the rest of my outfit, my jumper is from & Other Stories, my jeans are BDG (stocked at Urban Outfitters), my bag is from Aspinal of London, and my sneakers are Adidas Gazelles.

Monochromatic Dressing in Winter

Personally, there’s nothing I like more than everything in black and white, with a burst of colour. Especially in the winter!

This is my FAVOURITE, H&M x Isabel Marant jacket – undoubtedly one of my favourite purchases of all time. I’ve teamed it with my favourite Holly Carpenter x Anthropolgie sunnies (she is fantastic, definitely an eyewear designer to look out for), my ripped Guess jeans and the perfect biker boots from Zadig and Voltaire. To finish off, it has to be my perfect Aspinal tote bag – in monochrome of course!

ADIDAS: While you were sleeping, I was running.

The other day I was lucky enough to be asked by Adidas to model for their latest social campaign. I woke up at 4.30am, dressed in my running gear, and jumped in the back of a cab. I was in Shoreditch by 6am. Shooting with the street photographer Emmanuel Cole, we moved through East London as quietly as the shadows, searching for the perfect shot. The clocks were going back, and with an extra hour in bed, Adidas’ aim was to encourage people to get out on the streets and use that hour productively: an early morning run to kick start the day.

The shot below was posted on the Adidas Running Instagram feed – which you can check out here.
