Sunglasses and sangria

Good evening my bespectacled beauties, 

With the amazing sunny weather we have been having in London over the last few months. I have really been able to make use of my extensive sunglass collection 😀

I love the allure of throwing on a pair of sunglasses to accentuate my outfit choices. They also can hide a mutiltude of sins from too many late nights on the town, or in my case, trying to prevent the dreaded hayfever attacks! Haha. 

 

I wore the above vintage Topshop pair whilst in Positano. The red metal frames set off my dress and bag perfectly and gave a nice contrast. The backdrop proved a huge inspiration to me in what colour combinations I wore – the pastel buildings and bold purple flowers dotted everywhere was just breathtaking.

  
  
I wore my Rayban aviator pair whilst holidaying in Venice. As I was only there for a long weekend I decided to take a classical pair which would match with a variety of different outfits. The mirrored lenses are on trend for spring/ summer 2015 too. 

  
When I was in Spain for New Year, although the weather was a little cooler the sunshine was still beaming. I wore my tortoise shell Burberry pair for the trip as the heavier frames are a bit more appropriate for winter short breaks. 

  
When I was working overseas in Cape Town I lived in my retro Rayban wayfarers. They were so perfect for laid back beach days and the classic black frames complemented every bikini shade I had 😁

Accessories really are a way to show off your individuality and personality, which is why I love my collection of sunglasses. They all are completely unique and match a whole range of my wardrobe staples. 

Protecting your eyes as well as looking cool and chic, I will raise my glass of sangria to that 😀

Until next week, take care

Festival Fever

Good evening my music mavericks, 

As those close to me know, I am a huge music fan. My ITunes collection displays an eclectic variety of so many different genres from deep house, to rap, to R&B. Music has the power to transport me to my happy place whatever I am doing and can really push me to my limits when I’m out running or on my bike. 

I am lucky enough to have already been to some amazing concerts and festivals this year with more planned in the next few months. A few week ago I attended Wireless festival with Drake headlining. The weather was blissfully bright and  warm so I decided on the below outfit. My shorts are customised Levi’s with a sequin detail on the back pocket by myself, belt by Ted Baker, my striped Breton top is from a local shop, my sunglasses are Ray ban and my shoes are diamanté adorned Converse lovingly made by one of my best friends. 

 
In 2010 I went to see Calvin Harris at the O2. As it was New Year we decided to dress up for the occasion, I wore the below outfit. The dress is a vintage designer one and my shoes were from Nine West.  

 Whilst I was working overseas in South Africa where I have family luckily, my cousins and I went to see Swedish House Mafia. The day was perfect and whilst sat in a dusty field I wore the below. My sunglasses are by Rayban, my vest by Mango and shorts are from French connection.

    I also went to the Holi one festival whilst there, which was an unforgettable experience. Every hour on the hour thousands of people would throw coloured powder into the air whilst dancing to deep house music. As the colours were so vibrant everyone wore white clothing which ended up looking simply spectacular. This was me after a few rounds of the powder throwing with the beautiful Table Mountain as our backdrop😊
  

Every year I attend SW4 festival in Clapham Common which is always so much fun and has me dancing all day and night to the killer anthems. Whether it is raining (where my fail safe clothing will be Hunter wellies and my Mac) or stunningly sunny (where I usually wear my trusty sunglasses and funky shorts) it is my favourite London festival and I cannot wait to attend it this year again in August. 

  

My main advice for musical events is just always have fun and do not take yourself too seriously – music can bring up so many different emotions in every individual but for me as long as I am surrounded by my amazing friends and I feel cool and collected in my outfit of choice then I know I will have an awesome day. Just look at the smiles on these lovely faces from the Ed Sheeran concert this past weekend – you cannot fake that elation 😀  

Until next week, take care
