Developing an obsession: Metallics

Gold trainers, New Look
Pewter envelope bag (with detachable strap), Zara
Silver platform sandals, PPQ at Office (*amazing sale purchase!)

I've taken advantage of the lovely weather to take a few pictures of my current purchases; detailing my current obsession for metallic accessories. I love adding a flash of silver or gold to a bright colour and have worn the pewter envelope bag constantly since buying it.

March: Things I need in my life

For me, its always a treat to come back from a weeks holiday and see what new in store... I went away to the Baltics recently and came home last weekend, only to spend my entire lunch hour on Monday (mainly window) shopping, planning all the things I want to buy in the next few weeks.

(Clockwise from top left)
Scenic print dress, River Island, £30
Black platform boots, Linzi, £50
Cut-out print swimsuit, River Island, £28
Print skirt, Designed by at Miss Selfridge, £45
Printed pyjama-style jacket, Topshop, £40
Pastel colour block bag, Accessorize, £30
Sunglasses, ASOS, £15

Yes, the swimming costume may be a little premature but the amazing weather recently has made my mind fast forward to Summer, mainly to the image of myself lying by a pool with a cold glass of Diet Coke/wine/Cosmopolitan (delete as appropriate). I love the Miu Miu-esque catseye sunglasses that are in so many stores at the moment; this ASOS pair are wonderfully dramatic and attention grabbing and perfect for hiding tired eyes! I think the Jeffrey Campbell-alikes will be first on my list, there are so many affordable versions available at the moment but a pair of black ones are always going to be the most wearable.

Best in show: Fashion Weeks aw12

So I've been a bad blogger recently *smacks wrist*. Been a busy few months and the AW12 Fashion Weeks have flown by. I enjoyed a rainy day at LFW with my friend Amy at the Florian Jayet show and have loved catching up on the shows on the internet since.

As usual, lots of stylish celebrities attended the various shows this season and I've picked my top five outfits to share with you.

Alexa Chung at Jason Wu - New York

Louise Roe at Rebecca Minkoff - New York

Olivia Palermo at Christian Dior - Paris

Louise Roe at Tommy Hilfiger - New York 

Poppy Delevigne at Topshop Unique - London

I love Alexa's ability to put together stylish outfits that revolve around a great coat and shoes, Louise Roe's use of bold block colour and Olivia Palermo's polished dress/glossy hair/detailed shoes combo but I think its Poppy Delevigne's outfit that wins me over. The pairing of a Chanel bag with Topshop trousers isn't necessarily something we can all easily reproduce but I love the simplicity of the white shirt and the blue colour palette. She is fast becoming a favourite of mine!
