Winter Wonderland

So, seeming as college was cancelled yesterday I thought that it was the perfect聽opportunity to go for a walk and take some pictures of the snow!

In an attempt to keep warm I wore a wooly jumper along with this adorable duck print skirt I bought last week, tights andlong woollen socks (and I obviously topped this all off with a coat because I get cold so so easily.)聽And of course my beloved Hunter Wellies, I love them so much, I literally wear them at any chance I can get haha!IMG_3714 copy IMG_3725 copy IMG_3720 copy IMG_3731

I walked over to the woods, (I spend a lot of my time just walking through the woods, seriously, its like a strange hobby that I have), and I was greeted with the prettiest sights, trees just look so nice in the snow.

This lake was frozen, and the ducks were聽walking聽across聽it, it was literally the funniest thing I have ever seen, I just stood there laughing to myself (I must have looked insane).IMG_3790IMG_3791 IMG_3792 IMG_3794 IMG_3796

 

Today pretty much all the snow has melted, and everything is back to normal, booo.

I love the snow, everything looks prettier covered with it 馃榾

Do you guys like winter?

Weekly style inspiration- Alexa Chung

Image

This week’s style inspiration post has to go to the lovely Alexa Chung. Alexa is an English model/tv presenter, and her style is, in my opinion, perfect.

She tends to be rather聽androgynous, sticking to dark colours and showing a passion for wearing tailored聽suits, making her style a very聽distinctive聽one. Many people find this charming however, with multiple聽influential聽people including Karl聽Lagerfeld聽 and Vogue’s Anna Wintour describing her as “a phenomenon” and “the Kate Moss of the new generation”.

And of course we cant forget the famous handbag brand Mulberry, that designed, and named the much sought after “Alexa” bag in her honour.

She’s gorgeous and I’m obviously聽completely聽jealous.

What do you guys think of Alexa’s style?

(its 5 minutes to midnight, this still counts as a friday post right?) haha!

See you again tomorrow~

Nick Knight

Ok, so it’s insane how much I love this photographer. What’s even more shocking is the fact that my photography teacher initially introduced聽me to his work, a man who usually suggests really boring photographers that I just cant get excited about no matter how hard I try.

Nick Knight is a British Fashion photographer, and his work is really outstanding. He has shot both editorial and advertising projects for clients including聽Alexander McQueen, Calvin Klein,聽Christian Dior, Lanc么me, The Royal Ballet, The Royal Opera House,聽Swarovski聽and聽Yves Saint Laurent.聽He is also well known for directing Lady Gaga’s music video ‘Born this way’. (And he has the coolest name ever, you cant say that you dont agree ha).

The compositions are fabulous, the dresses are fabulous, I just really love everything about these photos.

You should definitely check out his website聽聽where there are hundreds of examples of his beautiful work- including some non fashion pieces!

Until tomorrow,

脌 bient么t!!

(I have no idea what happened here I obviously just forgot to press publish last night wow i’m an idiot pfft)

Anyone for tea?

Aside

Today has been so boring.

I went to work for 6 hours, as I do every sunday, but today it was just聽completely聽dead. I had聽one customer. And they only spent 拢40. What a waste of a day.

Anyway, thanks to that I had a looong time to think about what my post for today would be about, and, seeming as I had so much time to kill, it’s ended up as a post about the brand I work for. Haha!

I work in a department store called Williams and Griffin, and, to be honest, it is a really lovely place (actually, a few years back it beat Harrods for the ‘independant department store of the year award’ ooh hah). Funny story actually, I was almost born at this shop because my mum worked there when she was pregnant with me, and I obviously just decided it would be fun to be born two months early, so she was at work when she went in to labour (sorry mum).

I work for Waterford Crystal, Wedgwood and Royal聽Dolton聽China. They really make some pretty stuff (and most of it is extremely girly, which, as you probably know by now, I am a聽huge sucker for). My favourite things are the really dainty tea cups and tea pots, they’re just so聽cute ok.

聽 聽聽

Ok and now i’ll stop boring you haha!! I hope you all had lovely weekends, apparently its supposed to snow this week which will mean complete chaos because this country literally can’t deal with snow.

Have a nice monday!

Scott Schuman, The Sartorialist

Now, I’m sure you all know Scott Schuman, otherwise known as The Sartorialist.聽

As a fashion photographer/ blogger, I have to say he is one of my biggest inspirations at the moment. His images are effortless, always capturing the individuality of the persons clothing, as well as managing to capture a hint of their personality and attitude too.

I bought one of his books a couple of months back, and it has literally lived on my desk ever since. I love every single one of the images, and along with Scott’s quirky stories behind the photographs it makes a lovely addition to any fashion lovers book collection- its something that you can dip into again and again.

So my lovelies, I thought I’d show you a few of my favourites.

And of course, Garance, Scott’s girlfriend, and my favourite blogger of all time:

Scott Schuman’s work is聽unbelievably聽gorgeous, and his blog is one of those places where you can spend hours before you get bored, so if you’ve never heard of him I聽sincerely聽suggest you check out The Sartorialist聽.

Check out Garance’s blog too, she is so great and I am totally jealous of her life. You will love her, honestly.

(wow, two posts in one night- i’m on a聽roll!)
