I was in London last weekend for British Summertime Festival (which was great by the way – who knew Kendrick Lamar had such an array of catchy tunes!) and the following day, my boyfriend and I decided to make the most of being in the capital and decided a shopping spree and lunch date was in order. We were staying at the London Edition hotel which is right next to Oxford Circus so as you can imagine, there was a whole host of fabulous shops on our doorstep!

While we were roaming the streets around Oxford Road, we came across these super pretty and very blogger-esque marble steps so obviously I had to stop and get some snaps of my outfit. Much to my boyfriends dismay – who else’s boyfriend hates being a photographer on days out?! Haha! I thought I’d share what I wore for the day with you guys as I really loved the outfit and it was so comfortable to wear for a day shopping too.


When it comes to day to day fashion, I’m not one for wearing a lot of bright colours. Don’t get me wrong, I love the odd statement pieces here and there with a bold print or a vivid colour but more often than not, the colours I’m drawn to are black, white, grey or neutrals. I love neutral colour palettes for a number of reasons but particularly because they look classy, chic and can be accessorised with virtually any other colour! 


I decided to go for a monochrome look for my day shopping as I recently got this bardot striped blouse from Miss Pap and it’s quickly become one of my favourite tops to wear on a day to day basis as it looks great with jeans or tucked into a skirt. I decided to pair it with my new white denim skirt as the weather was fairly nice and I hate walking around in tight jeans when it’s warm – yuck! One of my favourite items of clothing to wear are high waisted skirts so as soon as I saw this one on Missguided’s website, I just had to have it. I love that it will go with so many different tops – it will definitely be one of my most worn Summer items.


To finish the look, I wore my trusty Carvela lace up heels which I got last Summer and have worn almost non-stop since I bought them. They’re seriously comfortable! I also wore my trusty Rayban aviator sunglasses and my new little ASOS choker necklace ! Finally, I took my trusty Zara city office bag out for the day which is my favourite bag to take when I travel anywhere as it fits loads in and has a compartment for my laptop too!!

Are you a fan of the monochrome look?!

When it comes to Summer clothing, matching two piece sets are definitely one of my favourite looks to wear. I think there’s something really cute about wearing a matching top and bottom half and I especially love little crop tops paired with shorts which is why I was immediately drawn to this Misguided two piece as soon as I saw it on their website.
I also love anything with a Paisley print at this time of year so again, this little set was a bit of a no brainer for me. I think it’ll be absolutely perfect for some festivals I’ve got planned paired with hunter wellies and a flower crown or on holiday with some cute sandals and sunglasses! I also like that it’s versatile as it’s appropriate for both day and night depending on how you accessories and it could even be split up and worn as individual pieces to create multiple looks. Winning!!
I love the way the top ties at the front too and that’s a style I’ve been seeing a lot of recently so I can see those kind of tops being a pretty big trend this season. I also have to mention how comfortable it is – it’s a really lightweight fabric so will be perfect for hotter climates or sunny UK days (if we get any that is).

In these photos I’ve just paired it with my favourite Quay Australia ‘My Girl’ sunglasses and my beloved Givency Antigona but as I said, it really is so versatile and will go with so many other items in my wardrobe.

If you’d have told me I’d be loving all things camouflage a few years ago, I’d have laughed in your face. Me? Camo prints? No, no, no. The only time I’d ever worn camo print was at fancy dress parties when me and my friends thought dressing up as army cadets and covering our faces in ‘war paint’ was a good idea. Oh the memories. However, fast forward a few years and camo has made its comeback and I for one am loving it! I’ve been converted.
My friend Debra recently came to visit me in Manchester so we headed out to take some outfit shots (what a gem she is – helping a sister out!) and this is one of the outfits I put together. As first I wasn’t sure a mix of stripes and camo was going to work but Debra reassured me it worked and I have to agree as when I looked back at the photos we took that day, this was my favourite look by far! It’s a little bit out of my usual comfort zone but that’s why I love it. I’m usually quite a girly girl but this look is more grungy / sporty and it’s definitely a look I’m going to be rocking more often.

As I said earlier, a few years ago I wouldn’t have touched a camouflage clothing unless it was for a fancy dress party. However, this Miss Pap camo jacket  (10% off with code KAYLEIGHJ10) has completely changed my opinion on the trend. It’s one of those really easy pieces to wear and an item that can instantly transform an outfit to give it a more stylish touch. It’s also a great piece to wear on those days where you’re not feeling all that body confident (I’ve been having a lotto those days recently) as it’s oversized and hides a multitude of sins.

I decided to pair the camo jacket with this cute monochrome striped skirt I picked up from Matalan a few weeks ago. I’m not usually into wearing anything tight fitting during the day and typically opt for the more floaty and comfortable items but this is honestly so flattering and the material is fairly thick so there’s no risk of a VPL. Considering it only cost me around £8, I’m super impressed with the quality and it’s definitely one I’ll be getting a lot of wear out of over the Summer months as it looks amazing paired with cute crop tops.
Talking of crop tops, the one I’m wearing in this post (online here) is another recent purchase, this time from Boohoo. I’m really loving the Boohoo website at the moment – I do find it takes a bit of searching for things I like because there’s SO much on there but it’s definitely worth the searching as I’ve found some total gems recently. This top was ridiculously cheap at £8 and it’s just one of those great basics to throw on with a skirt like I have in this post or a high waisted skirt. It’s super comfortable and I love the lace up detailing on the front which makes it a little more interesting than a plain white vest!


To finish the look, I wore my favourite Adidas Superstar trainers which I’m totally obsessed with and my Quay Australia ‘My Girl’ sunglasses – again, I’m completely obsessed. I love how both of these items add an instant cool vibe to any look – even though that’s the complete opposite of what I actually am, haha! My handbag is my Zara office city bag which I bought a few months ago now and it’s been glued to me every since.

Hope you like this outfit guys! Are you a fan of the camo trend?!
