Summer has officially come and gone for London, leaving many of us shivering and moderately damp in what, in the morning, seemed like appropriate August garms. This – and the fact that working in a fashion cupboard exposes you to a ton of unattainable next-season clothing goals – has prompted my hunt for knitwear, my taste in which invariably centres around anything chunky and in muted hues. Above are a couple of the favourites I’ve stumbled across, some of which I hope to be getting my hands on before the intense chill really hits.
Wasn’t overly taken with the majority of the looks at the VMAs this year, however Kylie Jenner, Chanel Iman and Sarah Hyland most definitely killed it. Channeling three completely different vibes, the trio have successfully provided me with three genres of formal inspo. Trying not to be too bummed out by the fact that Kylie Jenner is able to look so flawless while also being 17 years old.

NOTE: leather jacket is the best kind of saviour to any outfit.
Back from an incredible 3 week spell in California with one of my best friends, Grace, where we hiked, shopped, swam and explored both Northern and Southern Califorinian regions. All in all an unbelievable trip, from which I have returned vaguely tanned and reluctant to embrace the mercurial weather of London in summer.
Have had a somewhat crazy start to my summer, starting with an amazing week of work experience at Red magazine, followed by a week in Benicasim, Spain for FIB music festival, which was crazy and incredible for entirely different reasons. Next on the agenda is California, where I will undoubtably find a multitude of photo and outfit ops to post when I return for AS results in 3 weeks (!!!)
Spent a magical couple of days in Paris with my absolute soul sister, Erin, where we walked, drank and browsed to our hearts’ content. We stayed in Hotel Mama Shelter, which aside from being slightly out of the way, was beyond cool, and the weather was just the right amount of hot to make jackets unnecessary, but also to make the multiple leather items we were wearing marginally uncomfortable. An overall incredible trip, which I swear as I always do to make far more regular than it ever will be.
