Firstly, if you don’t like brunch, stop reading right here! No, but seriously brunch is the best thing that has ever been invented. I live for brunch and would probably die for it too. Secondly, HAPPY BIRTHDAY (for yesterday) mother <3! Hence, why there were brunch birthday celebrations going on. Dalloway Terrace is one of the loveliest places for birthday celebrations. It had been on my brunch bucket list for way too long, so any excuse to plan a visit is more than welcome.
Apart from the fact that I got my brunch, I was in much need of some shopping. Going back to school after nine weeks of summer is never easy, especially when you realize the amount of homework you still have to do…

Happy Thursday! I am sorry that I have not uploaded since Sunday but I will get onto all of that jazz later on in the post. If you have not yet been to the Barbican, then go. The brutalist architecture makes for surprisingly great photographs and design inspo. I have been wanting to visit the Barbican again, for too long, so it was only appropriate to grasp a free opportunity and take it with both hands!!! The Barbican is one of my favourite photography spots in London, so scroll down to see the shots. (Also, at the end, there is a little update!).
Lazy Saturdays are basically what I live for. I know it’s usually lazy Sundays, but who doesn’t love mixing things up a bit? On a Saturday, you will either find me strolling through Chelsea, or starting into space on a treadmill questioning a bunch of life choices! The point is, my Saturdays have ZERO direction; hence why I decided to swap the lazy Sunday for a Saturday. But, on the positive side, it means that Saturdays require laid back dressing. Not to say that I would wear a tuxedo or anything. But, you get the gist!
I don’t know why, but I seem to have fallen unexpectedly in love with H&M, this season. If you read my blog post on H&M (available here), you will know that I am generally shocked. Of course, for the right reasons! I found this INSANE red jumper. I’m not exaggerating when I say that everyone should own this. Because, it is so lush- omg, words cannot explain my love. Also, it is super affordable and will totally not burn a hole in your pocket!! Click more to see how I style this stunning knit:
It’s that dreaded time of year again: back to school season…Luckily, this year I am going to sixth form, therefore I have no uniform to wear (after like my whole life!!). So, of course, I took it upon myself to undertake the task of doing online shopping for school.
Wearing no uniform, is like the BEST THING EVER! But, for me, it means every morning will be a fashion crisis. I will have to wake up at least two hours earlier, just to try on my whole wardrobe, then complain that “I have nothing to wear”. I know, that the school hallway isn’t a catwalk! However, I do think that it is somewhat important to make an effort. No uniform also means more money $$$ to spend on clothes (sorry mother!), and more room for experimentation.
Considering, that school is rapidly approaching and like me, you have probably realized that summer is over, and dresses are a no go, I have put together the ultimate school wardrobe. This includes every category that you could possibly need to shop in: tops, sneakers, bags, I have got you covered! Click more to view the items and click to buy.
I feel like basics make or break a wardrobe. What do I mean? Well, basics build an outfit; they allow you to pair other ready to wear items with them. So basic pieces include tees with stripes, white tee, black jeans, midi coat, loafers etc. But, sometimes I find basics hard to style, especially in this extremely interchangeable London weather!
Honestly, you can never have enough basic staples in your wardrobe. Do you own any basic items? If so, find out how I style an absolute staple. If not, then click to get ideas about basics, like this striped tee I style!
