This is absolutely my favourite outfit right now.

I was waiting for what seemed like forever for this suede patchwork jacket to drop in Topshop. The toughest decision I've ever had to make it choosing between the rainbow and the tan. Initially, I was completely set on the tan version (available here) until I saw this multicoloured dreamcoat IRL. Although the tan is a lot easier to wear on a daily basis, I just cannot say no to a bit of multicolour! If they were not a painful £75 a piece, both colours would have no doubt come home with me.

This crochet dress is a part of the H&M x Coachella collection. I couldn't track it down anywhere in London, but managed to nab it in the Southampton store last week. The collection is incredibly affordable as this only set me back £14.99! Anything that echoes a festival influence is a winner with me.

Now I'm living back in Southampton, I've recruited James as a part-time blog photographer - cheers buddy! He demanded I furthermore credit him in all future blog posts for his ace photog skills, which are actually kinda shaping up! When I asked where I should link to as, he said his Twitter, so go follow him on Twitter here to shut him up.

O U T F I T | Monki-in' Around

Jacket: Vintage // Dress: Monki // Hat: Vintage // Boots: Zara

This dress cost me a FIVER. Well, technically it cost James a fiver. Five pounds well spent, I say!

The Levi's denim flight jacket was another barg and set me back only a tenner at a little vintage shop in Southampton called Beatnik Emporium. If you're ever in town it's worth popping by as it's only a short walk from the high street and is a fraction of the price compared to vintage digs in London.

I've officially left London now; it's both sad and exciting all at once!

P R E V I E W | Superdry AW15 Press Day

A few weeks ago I headed to the Superdry AW15 press preview evening at the Ham Yard Hotel. The event itself was actually held in the bowling alley within the hotel itself, so I was pretty excited as soon as the invite had landed in my inbox as I do enjoy a spot of bowling! 

Superdry absolutely nailed the venue for their event as I found myself in awe at every single turning inside the Ham Yard. I mean, the place even has it's own cinema too! Each lobby, bar and function room looked completely different from the next as they all boasted their own theme.

Upon arrival we were greeted with champagne and personally taken through each collection that's due to hit Superdry stores in the early autumn. Womenswear trends included 'Twilight, Winter Boho, Apr├Ęs and Wind Active, ranging from embellishment and sequins to dipped denim, textured knits and fur trimmed gilets'.

Whilst on the men's side of things 'capsules included Tailoring, Mountain, Military and Classics, showcasing sharply cut sartorial outerwear, retro athletic wear and striking down-filled jackets'. I was rather taken by an ice-white leather biker jacket with a detachable black faux fur that was on display that night.

After getting a run through of the collection we eagerly hit the bowling lanes! Fuelled on by the bubbly, a heated competition began between the girls and the boys. Now I don't mean to brag, but I'm pretty much a bowling superstar, didn't you know? Well, maybe I've bigged up myself more than I deserve, but I definitely acquire some sort of bowling magic when I've had a drink.

The night also saw the exciting announcement of the Superdry Blogger Network, which I'm pretty damn excited to be a part of! I've mentioned before that I have a bit of a soft spot for Superdry so I'm looking forward to seeing what opportunities the network brings!

I'm hoping for more bowling tournaments, personally...
