Last week I had the pleasure of shooting Grafea’s new ‘Wild At Heart’ rucksack with them on the streets of Manchester. It’s great to work with and support a Manchester company, particularly one which produces such great quality products. I can’t wait to use my new backpack for university! They are pricey, but absolutely worth it in my opinion – they’d definitely make a great Christmas present, or maybe a moving away present if you’re leaving home and have a generous family! I styled it with a really simple striped shift dress by Blonde & Blonde at Bank, white Public Desire sandals, and a pop of colour in this BooHoo coat which you might’ve seen in the photoshoot I blogged about here. Check out some other photos from my Grafea shoot and a little interview with me on the Grafea blog here.
Dress – Quiz* | Coat – H&M | Shoes – ASOS | Sunglasses – Matalan
Well I’m not looking forward to going back to boring old outfit post backdrops after all these super scenic photos with famous monuments in Paris! It was only fitting that I wore some horizontal stripes on my trip to France, and this dress from Quiz is great. It took me very easily from day to night worn with a casual but still very (for want of a better word) chic H&M trench coat and simple pointed flats. I like to think I looked très parisienne, non? My faux French image perhaps ruined by the fact that I was taking photos of literally everything.
Dress – American Apparel* | Shoes – Vans
As you will have seen if you follow me on Instagram, the lovely people at American Apparel have been kind enough to send me a selection of goodies recently, including this fab dress! I’m a big fan of stripes (in case you hadn’t figured this out by now!), particularly those of the skinny black and white variety, so this is perfect. It’s easy to wear casually with Vans Sk8 His like I have here, but I would definitely put it on for a casual night out with some chunky heeled ankle boots too. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that this dress is £36 – great value for such a versatile piece! And if you’re not a fan of stripes, it’s available in a whole array of plain colours too.
