O U T F I T | His & Hers with FYT & Co

Leigh wears // Hat: ASOS (similar here) // Duster*: c/o Oh My Love (available here) // Dungarees: Dickies via Depop // Boots: Topshop (old) // Bag*: c/o FYT & Co. (available here)

James wears // Beanie*: c/o FYT & Co (available here) // Bomber Jacket: Topman (available here) // Shirt: Topman (available here) // T-Shirt: Topman (available here) // Jeans: Topman (available here) // Rucksack*: c/o FYT & Co (available here) // Trainers: Adidas ZX Flux (similar here)

This is kinda like a cheap man's The Kooples ad. Actually, it's nowhere near as classy or chic. 
Say 'hello' to the fella usually behind the camera! My other half and partner in crime, James, was given the full style blogger treatment as the FYT & Co gang treated us both to a bag of our choice from their AW'14 range. I was first introduced to FYT & Co a few months back when I attended a small gathering for a blogger's breakfast hosted by the brand. They're definitely a hidden gem in the accessories department as their bag designs mix up classic and contemporary unlike no other. For example, a lot of their rucksacks have detatchable iPad cases - genius!

James chose the Hawthorne Roll Top Rucksack, whilst I opted for the Drift Backpack in Burgundy, which can also be used as a carry bag too! We were both particularly impressed and amazed at how many compartment's the roll top rucksack had inside. James could probably fit all of of the possessions he owns in there. It'll almost definitely be accompanying us to Glastonbury next summer.

Also, let's take a moment to mention my white full-length Dickie's dungas that I nabbed from Depop for just £15! Now, I wanted a full length pair of white dungarees for LFW SS15, but didn't find any in time. Then who decides strut into Somerset House in a pair of white dungarees? Only bloody Alexa Chung. What a diva! Definitely stole my idea. Anyway, I managed to buy this pair after Fashion Week for an absolute bargain. They actually came with loops to hold paintbrushes and tools (decorator chic), which I swiftly cut off. And yes, I bought them from a boy.
Also, the guys at FYT & Co kindly threw in a surprise set of matching beanies (hence the cringey picture) made from bamboo cellulose meaning they are insanely soft. It's pretty much glued to my head at the moment.

M U S I C | November Playlist

Every Other Freckle // alt-j

This one's a little bit saucy from alt-J. But that's okay. Now, if someone would like to buy me Alt-J tickets that would be great!

Amsterdam // Gregory Alan Isakov

I've been listening to this song every single morning for the past two months.

Nick Mulvey // Cucucuru

A pretty old number, but I don't think I'll ever get tired of it.

Summer Wine // Lana Del Rey & Barrie-James O'Neill

One of my favourite covers to date. Queen Lana can do no wrong.

What have you been listening to recently?

O U T F I T | Silver & Gold

Hat: ASOS (similar here) // Waistcoat: Charity Shop // Velvet Halter: Charity Shop // Skirt*: c/o Blue Vanilla (available here) // Boots: eBay

I know there is a rule that silver and gold should never be seen when it comes to jewellery, but what's the rule with a silver and gold palette when it comes to clothes? Even if it's still a fashion monstrosity, I decided to defy it. Rebel, rebel.

This extra voluptuous, baroque style skirt is by one of my new faves, Blue Vanilla, and it's perfect for this party season. I almost forget about these 70's velvet dream boots, which I bought for a cheap and cheerful £5 on eBay last year. I'm so happy it's velvet season yet again! Happy Friday!
