Knightsbridge In Bloom

It's been a while since my last post, but finally I'm having some well deserved, non ill, time off from work after a brilliant working week away in New York. I only wish we had more time to explore, but I definitely think we made the most of our limited time. That will definitely be my next post sharing my 5 day adventure. 

Back to the post in hand. If you follow me on instagram you'll know I am always in my stripy tees and jeans, I alternate how I style my simple look with my accessories and coats. Isn't that the real trick to a versatile wardrobe? Wonderful accessories? Of course! But I must admit like denim, I love to look out for different stripy tees and jumpers. This one is a Topshop one, they are my go to for basics along with ASOS. 

The jeans I am obsessed with the last month have to be The Joni Jeans from Topshop. For the £36 they are worth every penny. For me, I have had to invest in Current Elliot and J Brand Jeans because they don't alter the leg width when it comes to the hip size which seems to be a general must for high street jeans, because when you're a size 16 clearly you have fatter legs *ADD EXTREME SARCASM*. The Joni's really do fit my need for everyday skinny jeans. They cling to the leg, they have a great comfortable stretch and are high-waisted. I definitely recommend them especially if you are someone who likes a super skinny fit. I have bought them in 2 shades of blue, black and grey. Obsessed much?

Of course no blog post of mine isn't complete without that Chanel touch. I recently bought this amazing Deauville tote (medium size raspberry red) which was launched part of Spring Summer Act 1 collection. The tote has been on my list since it launched 4 years ago, but in-between that I just never found the colour I wanted or spent my wages on something else at the time. I literally had bought my tri-colour jersey bag the week before (coming on the blog soon) so I had to beg my mum for this little buy. I'm glad she caved because it is so light and perfect for the spring/summer ahead. The colour is just jaw dropping in reality. 

I am also happy that the past 2 seasons at Chanel has seen some amazing jewellery pieces. The chain round bracelet was from cruise collection and the CHANEL cuff is current and went down the runway stacked up during the Riot collection. I had bought 2 but decided I have so many unique Chanel bracelets I didn't need 2 to imitate the runway look. 

I hope everyone is having a lovely start to the Easter Weekend!

Thanks for reading.
