#OOTD Acne

So this A/W I've made the executive decision that unless it falls into the category 'Neutral' then I am just not interested. My go-to colours are grey and black. So predictable for fall but I am LOVING it. 

Here's a recent all-grey ensemble with one of my favourite grey sweaters. It's a double-layered beaut from Acne. I think it helps make me look Swedish? A win all round if you ask me.

#OOTD Check Mate

It's that time of year again when layering is not only a good choice aesthetically but also physically as it's so damn cold!

A plaid/check shirt is always a good thing to wear if you're wanting to keep your look casual and relaxed.

I also love this gym bag, it was given to me by a friend who was a designer for a vintage boutique that redesigns vintage pieces into something new. It's real leather and made from old vintage leather trousers!

#OOTD Bling Bling

So I went to Ronnie Saunders' Diners Union last night and it was AMAZING. The food was spanish themed and totally delicious. Such a great concept and really cheap! We hit a few bars in shoreditch after too. Food, prosecco and rum. 3 of my favourite things! 

The 2 necklaces are new. I got the chunky pewter one from Topman, and then on Tuesday I was invited to the Claire's Accessories Halloween Part @ Sketch London with a few of my faves Sheree, Lucy, Carmen and Leanne (which was such a good night!) and they gave me the gold one. I think it looks totally Versace. I also made my first appearance on the Daily Mail sidebar of shame (albeit in the background of Jess Wrights pap pictures...but an appearance nonetheless haha!)

#OOTD Escape to the Country

It's been a while since I actually posted an update! I've been ridiculously busy at work including travelling overseas to the City of Love, Paris! 

I also took some personal time-out and went on a vacation to visit some of my family that live in the Middle East. It was a much needed bit of rest and sunshine! I went with my 2 housemates and we had the most amazing time. 

Before all this happened I went to visit one of my very close friends who lives out in the country-side for a weekend. As a city boy living in London it was an amazing break. The country air does wonders to clear the head! 

For my break, I wore: 
Jumper H&M
Jeans  Topman
Sunglasses RayBan
Coat Vintage
Boots Dr Martens

PS the shot with the Air Rifle was just a joke!

#OOTD #LFW London Fashion Week

London Fashion Week has been in full swing over the past few days. On Friday I was invited to the Palmer//Harding show with my close friend Sheree as guests of high-end headphone brand Harman Kardon. The show was amazing! A real life fashion show is a cool experience and since this was my first one at Fashion Week I was pretty stoked.

On day 1, I wore: 
Leather Jacket AAA by Topman
Neclaces Vintage
Tee Primark
Printed Trousers Topman
Leather Converse  Office

On Day 2 we went to Somerset House for the festivities with friends Sheree and Lulutrixabelle. It's a shame the weather wasn't slamming as the people-watching wasn't as good as it has been known to be. 

On Day 2, I wore: 
Blazer Topman
Shirt ASOS
Leather Belt Vintage
 Camo Trousers Bershka
Shoes Call It Spring
Bag Rowallan of Scotland

#OOTD This Boy Ben (Nevis)

So I am totally posting these pictures to make myself feel warm and remind myself that it has been sunny at some point in London. It's totally freezing now and I am worried that Autumn has officially set in. WTF. I am not ready for this.

I AM ready for my vacation in 17 days to the United Arab Emirates though and then a cheeky trip to Paris for work the week after. Paris will be cold...but beautiful. That's something I can work with.

Speaking of cold, if you're ever in Camden you should check out Chin Chin Labs. The most amazing Nitro Ice Cream.

I'm wearing

Sleeveless Tee Topman
Shorts River Island (were trousers but I cut them)
Shoes Nike Air Waffle

#OOTD Vintage Nike Niceness

I went home recently to visit my parents (who still live 'up North') and now I'm a London boy it was nice to have a break from The Big Smoke for a couple of days and enjoy the more laidback lifestyle of Yorkshire (read: I made my mum do everything).

Anyway, whilst I was up there I found this amazing Nike jacket that I have had since I was about 13. That's over 10 years making this official vintage. The younger me may not have been totally as stylish but now I see it was all part of a grand plan to make the future me happy. Funny, eh?

On another note, the sunglasses I'm wearing here have broken. They were my memory of Venice Beach LA! Anyone wanna buy me a flight out there to get some more?
