FASHION/ Weekly fashion faves, 1

Hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend, and welcome to (what I very much intend to be) a new weekly series on my blog – weekly fashion 5.

This has kind of been inspired by the weekly celeb style round up I used to do when I first started off, which I miss, but these days my style inspo comes from more places – my friends, family and fellow bloggers to name a few. Every week I’m going to share my favourite looks, why I like them and any links to help you get the same look. Enjoy!

Lily Melrose

I’m already pre-empting that Lily will feature in this series often, given that most of my wardrobe is made of things I’ve seen her wear! I bought this dress ages ago and it would’ve looked really lovely if it would’ve covered my boobs, I know it’s meant to show cleavage but on me it was indecent. Sob. I can vouch for this jacket though – super cool, great fit and just £35. The only thing I’ll never be able to buy is her awesomeness.

Jacket, ASOS / Dress, New Look / Boots, similar here.

Mollie King

Mollie’s look lives in a category I’m calling ‘Autumn AF’ – beautiful textures and simple tones but it looks all kinds of cute and well put together. There’s something about black faux leather/coated trousers that elevate an ordinary look into something a bit extra, it’s one of my fave A/W style statements.

Jacket, similar here / Coated jeans, similar here.

Holly Willoughby

Ah – this is the sort of super casual I used to wear before I gained weight that’s just perfect for daytime. I wish I still felt this confident, but hey. I’m all about the scarf being such a standout next to the all- black look, but still contrasts nicely with the khaki knit underneath. Yasss Hol!

Scarf, Zara / Jeans, similar here / Trainers, Nike.

Violet Glenton

This lovely girl literally has no idea how much of inspiration and confidence booster she is to those around her, and to top it all off she throws a pretty nice outfit together too! I’m really enjoying the colour pop knit trend that’s coming through at the moment, definitely one I’m going to be jumping on myself. This’ll go great with some coated/faux fur trousers a la Mollie.

Jumper, Pretty Little Thing / Hat, similar here.

hope you enjoyed this new segment, see you next week

Thanks for reading,

EVENT/ #HullBloggers Summer Event

 
 If you’ve been reading my posts for a little while you may have seen that back in December I had the pleasure of co-organising and co-hosting an event for some of the bloggers in the area…well, for the last few months I’ve been hard at work on the next one! And it’s bigger and better than EVER. 

Meet the Dream Team

On Organising Brands and Blogger Contact have been my beaut blondies Kat and Alex.

   
Behind our newly established @HullBloggers #twitter account is social media firecracker Charley. Make sure you’re following for all the latest updates!

Our Brands

We’ve been lucky enough to work with some existing partners and make some new friends for this event- in total we have over 100. Fashion, beauty, food, lifestyle…you name it, we have it! A complete list has been released on Twitter since the beginning of August, but here’s a sneak peek             

We’re the network of bloggers who likes to connect, however we also feel it’s important to give back where we can. So this time we’ll be doing a mahoosive raffle for all attendees with the proceeds being donated to The Eve Appeal which will hopefully help their work in a small way.

I hope those of you who are coming are getting excited now, can’t wait to see your own blog posts abc your fabulous outfits! Those of you who aren’t able to join us I hope you enjoy the live streaming on social media, the next one is in the works very soon be assured.

EVENT / Hull Fashion Week

I’m proudly from #Hull and now we’re the City of Culture for 2017 it’s getting more exciting to be here all the time. But we’ve actually had our own Fashion Week for the last few years – promoting #fashion that can be picked up locally and pieces that are made locally too. We’re a pretty creative bunch you know! It’s lovely that they appreciate the relevance of #bloggers to this type of event and the #HullBloggers are equally as obsessed… 

     

This wassome #selfystick fun in the photobooth…I need to work on how to use it still! Tips appreciated. 

Presenters

We had the pleasure of some of our fave local personalities as hosts – Stylish weather girl Keeley Donovan (@KeeleyDonovan) and fly guy rapper  Nineties Boy (who’s music is amazeballs!). They were joined by star stylist Lewis-Duncan Weedon (@ldweedon)  who styled their stage looks and talked the audience through the trends from each catwalk presentation.

  

Catwalks

I’ve just included a selection of my faves but there were lots! 

Sports Chic – this included a really  cool insert of polo wear in support of the local club, and the cute as a button mini model        

 Festival/ Summer Wear          

Upcycling and Customising Presentation by  Poor Boy Boutique

Hope you enjoyed a bit of home town fashion!

FASHION/ Weekly Style Round Up

Depending on how you view it – this post is either a day late or 6 days early for my usual Sunday timing…

There’s Good Genes, and Those who Look Good in Jeans

Proof seen right here on lil Miss Kendall Jenner – it’s ok to live in your off duty uniform! Same jeans, shoes and shades (shot in different lights which makes the colours look a bit different in each shot). I’m obsessed with my ripped knee skinnies as part of my go to style right now, but nobody would deserve to see that much of my thigh flesh under so many rips though! But Miss Pap make a really similar version of Kenny’s at a great price here http://www.misspap.co.uk/laura-light-wash-super-ripped-skinny-jeans.aspx
Yup, Frankie and Sam’s subtle rips are what I usually strut the halls of uni wearing…and I’m kind of upset that my fave jeans come in yet another colour I have to try and resist…I also think khaki skinnies are what All Saints would wear if they reformed right now! Buy them here http://www.topshop.com/en/tsuk/product/moto-khaki-ripped-jamie-jeans-4087193?geoip=noredirect&cmpid=ppc_pla_UK_ip&utm_medium=cpc&tsrc=vdna&istCompanyId=38aa0d7f-6514-4cb3-bbdc-df0d32d48b7f&istItemId=pprwqplqi&istBid=tztx&gclid=Cj0KEQiA3bymBRC19IrD7O_NrYsBEiQAb2dpA5ZWq5rivMxYCIiOtbE6YW4Jk7grU8OHVpEzIR2GcGcaAhQl8P8HAQ&gclsrc=aw.ds
Billie’s khaki look is soooo damn chic! Her ribbed high neck top is a little like this Top Shop number which I own in grey and wear to death http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?searchTerm=Funnel+neck&storeId=12556&productId=18333521&urlRequestType=Base&categoryId=&langId=-1&productIdentifier=product&catalogId=33057

It’s nice to see some warmer tones in A/W, and there definitely ain’t nuthin’ mellow about this yellow! Solange really does embody that mantra of “the world is your runway” doesn’t she?
The Whitmore’s looking good as always – a great combo of quirky and chic. The colours/pattern aren’t scary to wear if you’re not used to that sort of thing either so anyone could try this sort of thing, maje props to Laura for pulling a double red lip with her lip AND bag. Triumph!
Mollie’s gorgeous brown mini would look amazing with a lovely mustard yellow, and it can be dressed up or down for the occasion or the weather. I’d definitely pair it with a cool slogan tee for cheeky evening drinks. River Island always do great faux leather skirts, this one is similar to Mollie’s http://www.riverisland.com/women/skirts/mini-skirts/Brown-leather-look-mini-skirt-666806

White Hawt Honeys

White can be fabulously angelic, chic, stylish yet look devilishly good it would seem…a lot of the ladies in this week’s round up are sorting fabulous pointed courts in various shades, and Boohoo have them in each colour for a complete steal here http://www.boohoo.com/page/search?q=Court+heels
My top props go to Amanda Holden this week, I’m obsessed with her looks in these pics from the Britain’s Got Talent auditions. She’s one of those women that’s looked after herself really well and gets better looking and more stylish with age, kind of like I hope I’m doing if I’m honest!

Some fabulous looks again this week, hope you enjoyed as well. On that note, I’m off to hit the virtual shops and give my not so virtual account a bit of a beating….
