NYFW SS17 Favourites

I genuinely can't believe it's that time of year again where the various fashion weeks are upon us - well, now they're nearly over since I'm so late posting this but hey... It feels like only yesterday I was trawling through images from the SS16 catwalks for my uni assignment and here I am now obsessing over SS17. For a girl who loves Autumn/Winter fashion, I sure have been converted to loving Spring collections these past few seasons - and this one is no different. Here we have my favourites from New York's runways:

A long-time favourite of mine, Marissa Webb's collections are the epitome of wearable fashion for the modern woman. This season her selection of textures, prints and colours worked harmoniously with darker jackets toughening up silk and lace while brights contrasted with pure white. Tie-up waists seen on skirts and trousers (the leather options are my personal favourites) and ruffles provided the most flattering silhouettes. Not forgetting to mention how pretty the make up look was, too. Webb continues to impress me season after season. 

Cushnie et Ochs's SS17 collection didn't sway from their signature style that I love, consisting of easy evening dresses and wide leg trouser and crop top combos. If you don't like the cut-out or cold shoulder trend this isn't one for you, but the garment shapes which nod towards the 70s are what attract me to this collection. The looks appear feminine, effortless and breezy yet still glamorous. One of my favourite pieces is the pink jumpsuit but there are many other red-carpet worthy contenders too.

Recent Beauty Buys

I received a late birthday present from my auntie and thought I would share it with you along with a recent beauty purchase I made as the products were too pretty that it would be a crime not to photograph them. I haven't purchased any make up myself for a while as I've tried to cut down and use up the products I already own first, instead focusing more on skincare as I'm desperate to find a routine that suits me, but it's always nice to receive make up as a gift.

My Thoughts on Having Shorter Hair

My hair has become a bit of a conversation starter lately. To me, it comes as a shock since I don't make a huge effort with it or anything. However, I do feel like I've found my signature hairstyle since cutting it shorter and perhaps that's why it's the first thing people notice, especially when they haven't seen me for a while. As short hair seems to be a bit of a thing at the moment (just search 'long bob' Pinterest for evidence) I thought I'd write about my experience with it. 

Mermaid-ing Around in London

When you come across a giant shell at the V&A museum you can't help thinking it would be the perfect photo opportunity. You know the drill, pretending to be a mermaid for an Instagram photo and the like. I thought I would share the photos from my day here too as I had a fab time catching up with a couple of my friends from uni after 2 months apart.
