Spring changes

Photos taken by Leanne Lim-Walker

Been loving girly dresses lately which is super surprising to me. I've never been the one to go for such a feminine piece but something about spring has got me to change my mind. Of course, I still stuck by my gut and paired it with my Adidas Stan Smiths and leather jacket to keep it very 'me'.

Skater chic

Neon rose duster | Vintage levis | Converse trainers | Brandy Melville top (similar

This was one of my favourite outfits I wore whilst in LA. I was heading out to Bottega Louie for brunch and wanted to wear something really comfortable but chic at the same time. I went for my vintage levi cropped jeans, converses, a knitted white polo top and this super chic and minimal duster coat from Neon Rose. I just love the shade of it against the vintage levis and how it really transformed my outfit. I could of paired it with heels and head out for dinner in the evening!

Outfit Inspiration // Spring

I've been loving a lot of light colours lately - especially the blush pink tones. I've put together my ideal spring outfit mixing together some muted tones with some fresh spring colours whilst keeping it structured and modern. Something that can be worn from day to night! 

First off, in love with this coat! I already have a pink coat in my wardrobe but it's a bit more dusty and more suited for winter. This one is more fresh vibrant and tailored. It would go so nicely with some loose effortless waves and a blush pink lipstick! I've paired it with this structured crop top with more of an orange undertone. I just love how these colours look against each other and makes each one pop. To tone it all down, this grey skirt comes into the picture. I chose a more interested shape than the usual straight pencil skirt. I think having it be a wrap skirt just hugs your curves a bit more and is more flattering.  To finish it off, it's the return of the mules! Finally we can get back to wearing them without having our little toes freeze off! They also come in silver too if you fancy! Also if you aren't loving the mules, why not opt for the classic white trainers?!

Keeping comfy in Bershka & Relaunch party comp!

So I've teamed up with Bershka to create a comfy off duty look which I wore to my meetings today! I opted for this light weight bomber jacket as I didn't want to get all sweaty and paired it with a classic white tee. I'm loving this combo at the moment - the plain tee and a bomber. They work so easily and you can dress them up or down. For the jeans, I went with something a bit more rough and relaxing so opted for these blue wash skinnies with a raw hem line at the bottom. They worked so well with the bomber and plain tee combo and made my outfit look rather chic and effortless. I'm also loving espadrilles at the moment and these were perfect for the day! They are a combination or sneakers and espadrilles which I love. Really comfy too and I love how they also have raw edges which ties in nicely with the jeans.  To finish off the look I went for a 'big girl' bag - my Givenchy and a classic pair of John Lennon-esque sunnies! 

Bershka are also relaunching their flagship store on Oxford Street this Thursday with Amber Le Bon and Whinnie Whilliams who will be DJ-ing and I have some tickets to the launch party to give away!

The perfect shirt dress

My search for the perfect shirt dress has finally come to an end! This one from Urban Outfitters fits me perfectly and the length falls to the right height where I don't felt like I'm swamped. I've paired the shirt dress with these beautiful suede boots from Vagabond which has a sleek round toe and makes my legs look a bit longer. The heels on these made it really easy for me to walk around in them all day in comfort!

As I had a lot to carry around I opted for my backpack. I just fell in love with the shape and how spacious it was. It was big enough to fit in my iPad pro, diary, hair brush, make up bag, purse, camera and charger! I also used it whist traveling to the airport and it was such a space saver. 

I definitely need more of these shirts in all the other colours cause they fit so well and was so comfortable. Perfect for my trip to Thailand in less than two weeks!

The knitted hug

Z supply tee | Topshop shorts | Adidas stan smiths | Willow & Clay cardigan | Celine bag 

Thursday was spent brunching with Sienna and Eric. Shooting more content and exploring a bit more of melrose to look for locations. I wanted to dress in something comfy as I was going to be walking around a lot so opted for my Adidas Stan Smiths, high waisted shorts, loose fitting tee and this huggable knitted cardigan. It was a bit breezy so this cardigan was perfect!

Green machine

Zara bodysuit | Topshop Jeans | Perverse sunglasses | Zara shirt | Mango boots | Celine bag

So for our first day in LA I went for something super casual but chic as we had a meeting and then a coffee date afterwards. I wore out my western boots from Mango for the first time and they really weren't too bad to break them in. 

I also went for a body suit which I don't normally do and this one from Zara was super comfortable and fitted me really well. Completed the look with my safari shirt and these bad ass shades from Perverse sunglasses to match! I was really comfortable and didn't have to worry about the cold as the weather in LA at the moment is the perfect temperature! 

Keep an eye out for Leanne's outfit on her blog soon!
