A/W16… Choker

One of the hit accessories this season is the Choker necklace and if you have been looking at my instagram posts recently you will have noticed that I am somewhat a fan of this latest fashion craze…

The choker necklace was a very popular accessory back in the 90s and recently it has re-surfaced itself and became ever popular throughout SS16 and has now become a top hit for this winter.

Chokers have made a comeback with many different shapes, materials, patterns and colours. You can get cord ones, velevet ones, metal ones, beaded ones and even the elasticated ones that were ever so popular in the 90s!

I recently invested in this pack of 4 from Stradivarius… A shop that I am gutted I’ve only just found out about because I absolutely ADORE everything on their website and will definitely be visiting their London store next time I’m in town!! Check out their website here and here is a link to my chokers…

Date night

So tonight’s my one year anniversary with my wonderful boyfriend and he’s taking me out on a surprise date…

The only instructions I’ve been given are “to dress up but not smart”. 

Therefore I’ve decided to opt for a jeans-heel combo with a simple tie up vest and a long cape.


I decided to apply a nude lip, gold eye makeup and bronze cheeks in order to coordinate with the gold on my bag and my heels (shown in the photo below).

Let’s hope I’ve dressed appropriate for the occasion!

Get the look:

  • Jeans – Topshop
  • Vest – Brandy Melville
  • Cape – Matalan
  • Shoes – Zara
  • Bag – Vivienne Westwood
  • Lipstick – ‘Yash’ by Mac

Spring/summer 2016 bring out my inner girly girl

Usually I am an all black everything girl no matter what the season and I’ve not bought anything pink in the last 10 years… However blush is my absolute favourite colour of the season!

Yesterday I found this lush leather jacket which is perfect for summer as it is soo lightweight and cool with its 3/4 length sleeves. It will go perfect with any outfit to keep you warm during the spring breeze or summer evenings!

  • Jacket – Zara
  • Tshirt – Brandy Melville
  • Jeans – Topshop
  • Shoes – Vans
