ARCHIVE X ALEXA : ELSIE DRESS

August 28, 2016









So it seems I'm a little late to this seeing as though this collection launched in April...but better late than never eh? When I heard one if my style icons Alexa Chung would be launching a collection with the national treasure that is Marks & Spencer, I knew I would need to get my hands on it. The collection was based on the idea that Alexa picked some of her favourite pieces from the M&S archive, and then updated them for the modern day. Two of my favourite pieces (hence the one's I got) were the Harry blouse and the Elsie Dress. The Elsie Dress is a beautiful polka dot swing dress with a tie bow at the top. I saw Alexa wearing in the launch pictures and thought she looked so cool that I needed it too...! They only had a size 8 in stock so I had to get mine altered in order to make it shorter. Simply paired with a pair of boots this is the perfect girly summer outfit. It differs heavily from my usual black and white minimal style, but sometimes it's nice to be just a bit girly!

CHELSEA

August 07, 2016








Theres so many parts of London to explore, however one of my favourite parts has to be Chelsea. I love the design and architecture, and the shops and ambience are amazing. I spent last summer staying in Chelsea, just a short walk from the Fulham Road. It was beautiful and will always be a summer that I remember. The other day I spent a beautiful summer evening walking round the streets of the borough and had a blissful time. I also whipped out my current favourite trousers that I literally can't seem to take off at the moment! I ADORE these striped culottes. They feel as though you are wearing pyjamas, and they look super chic with so many things. I simple black tee and a pair of round sunnies really makes this look though. I'm not usually one to wear socks on show with my shoes, but I feel these glitzy silver socks work perfectly with these masculine platform brogues.
