ADORE the latest from Northern Irish designer J.W Anderson. I’m not usually a print person but when its executed so perfectly I gotta make an exception. I’d style one of the more statement pieces with a loose basic, or dress it up with something like the gorgeous green draped crop top in the last outfit. The prints and cuts are quite modern in their own way(the sun ray skirt with those irresistable paper like deep pleats) but I also think their look is quite timeless too!
Hmm I think all this time in London is definitely making me a bit more open minded in terms of trying new styles and imagining how I could style them to suit me. Only five days left in this crazy city!
This was one of those shooting days when I couldn’t wait to get my blogging teeth into it! After slipping into the most badass of leathers from AllSaints I trotted off to the V&A museum in South Kensington for a bit of culture. I met up with my always superbly attired friend Toni (Fashitects) who kindly snapped up my outfit details in the Boroughs (always wanted to shoot here!) before some well needed Italian food. In love with my new in bag from AllSaints, moss green & pony hair leather, my two favourite things! It already has pride of place on my mantle, a center piece in itself in my all white London room.

Click the video above to watch my latest fashion cinema lookbook. So gutted I had to change the original song it was edited too, gotta love me always picking restricted music ;-( . Hope you love this one as much as the last, and don’t forget you can cop everything I wore with the links under the video if you watch it directly from my youtube page! T. x
New in booties which of course I just had to share with you! They’ve got this throwback 80′s/spicegirl vibe which I love. Zara are killing A/W at the moment and the stock on oxford street is too good to miss out on. This store is hoovering up all my shopping money, but I’ve learned they rarely get things back in stock so you just have to go for it sometimes! These weren’t exactly a steal at £89.99 but they’re real pony hair leather (no actual ponies were harmed in the making ladies and gentlemen) which somewhat justifies the price..right?
This is how I like my cheetah, well done!
How good are these photo’s Cathal took?! My boy is so on point with lighting these days.. I felt a bit inspired(and admittedly a little scared) when I added these lace-up front shorts to my basket but actually I think they’re super wearable when modernised with a very ‘clean’ look on the top. Did I mention how comfortable this outfit was?! Also My first time wearing a hat, I don’t know about it but I think it’s fun with my lighter hair and the bag of course… The shorts have that ‘I thrifted this in texas’ vibe and its nice to rock brown faux leather for a change! Definitely one of my California inspired looks. Kisses, T
Somethin’ a little different, I thought I’d take you guys around my day off exploring London, and as usual I went into travel mode and found some un-touristy stuff to do, which this city has in abundance. I felt like a bit of culture so I met up with my good friend and we headed over to the Louis Kahn architecture exhibit at the Design Museum in Shad Thames, I added just a few pictures of pieces I enjoyed/couldn’t decide whether I liked, I love that curious feeling!
After we strolled up to shoreditch we had a rumble through box park before settling for the Urban Food Festival two minutes away, which I was dying to check out. I love the goodvibes that come with outdoor street food places, and this spot was just the ticket! Free to enter, each vender has something different to offer, as well as an amazing cocktail stand(Pomegranate, mint and lemon, vodka is the bomb). I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t woozy after one drink on an empty stomach! For food I had the ramen burger from Korean BBQ, not to fussed about the whole noodle bun thing unfortunately but the meat itself was perfectly cooked, and was really soft and easy to eat considering I usually hate thick burgers! Really cool well maintained spot, Definitely recommend it if your in the area on a saturday! Hope you liked this snapshot of my day T. x
It’s that time of year it seems, A/W has hit the stores! Oxford Street windows have me brainwashed, its over 20 degrees in London and I’m buying my winter coat! I’m not one for super splurgy annual spends when it comes to coats but last year I spent a bit of money on my Estradeur one and I got a million wears out of it, so I thought I’d spend a little more this year. I was eyeing this for a week straight in Zara, and after booking some new jobs I thought I’d treat myself… It’s hand made and the material isn’t too thick which I love because in Belfast I walk everyway and get warm really quickly so I hate wearing anything too heavy! It has a robe look to it, but not TOO robe-y, the way its cut makes it look super chic and lady like. My favourite cut is when things have an oversized feel without being physically oversized and still fit well in the right places. I don’t like macs so this camel alternative is perfect for me! It was £160 which hurts my soul but it is hand made and I’ve been booking a lot of jobs over the last month. I’m going through a bit of a paradigm shift style wise and I think this piece is going to be a perfect to freshen it up! Only regret is Kim K got there first!

Viva la London! Little hello from the end of my first working week. I felt like a little exploring on Sunday and popped into one of my favourite shops Ladurée to pick up some celebratory french macarons. The strawberry/chocolate mallow ones were new to my taste buds, and not surprisingly tasted as amazing as they sound! I adore these slouchy satin Topshop pants, totally practical and goes with every basic.
I don’t know how people work in London, I end up in the shops everyday! After I met with my friend who kindly took this snap for me.
