LA has always had a special place in my heart, ever since first exploring the city a few years back. This time around we opted to spend the week in the hills in an air bnb we found in the Sherman Oaks/Benedict Canyon area. The area was perfect and would definitely recommend for anyone looking to spend their time away from the hustle and bustle of the city yet still be only 30 mins away from the sunset strip. I am actually compiling my version of city guide for both LA and the desert, that will be live on the blog in the next month or so.

Whilst we were out there the weather was a strong 30˚C + most days, so shorts and crop tops were one of my go-to outfits. These ones, from Shein are the perfect mix of utility and comfort for everyday wear, which can also be dressed up with an oversized shirt and mules for something a little more 'put together'. A quality in an item which I always adore.

So after an unexpected and kinda needed break from the blog, which was in no way intentional but with my final year uni deadline looming at the end of May it just needed to happen. However, fast forward to post-deadline,  I went on a 2 week trip to Palm Springs and then to LA for a much needed holiday and it was pretty amazing, to not only relax but to also go back to my favourite part of the world. Also now that uni is *officially* over (this gal graduated yesterday!) I am planning on relaunching my blog over the next couple of months, turning it into a more of hub of not just fashion but also lifestyle and beauty posts. This also means migrating it over to Wordpress (deffo longtime in the making) as I've out grown blogger and I honestly feel like using Wordpress would be more beneficial in creating engaging content. Any tips are also very welcome on this migrating process?! Something I'm just trying to wrap my head around.

So over to the outfit, we decided to shoot this particular Shein two-piece at the Getty Villa a museum and gardens situated just off the pacific coast highway in Malibu. Since everything about the place - colour wise co-ordinated perfectly with this lil' look which is also may I add screaming clueless vibes.

Two of my favourite spring / summer transitional pieces are a classic bodysuit and maxi (and sometimes) midi skirt. There is something so versatile about owning both for this time of year, as they are each in their own way unique layering pieces. A bodysuit for me is vital for summer, my wardrobe consists of an array of different types, with some suited for 'casual' dressing and others suited for a more 'dressed up' setting. Then the maxi skirt is a piece which for me is an all round seasonal must-have, paired (like today) with a classic bodysuit for spring / summer wear or when its a bit cooler, layered with an oversized knit and teamed with a pair of chunky black boots. They really are two classic wardrobe staples.

So I think I found the perfect frilly crop top, which happens to come in the form of this red and frilly Shein number. For me when the weather starts to get a bit warmer and sunny days seem like a constant, I tend to review my wardrobe to see whether there are any gaps which might be missing a couple of key pieces. This is by no means me telling myself to go on a massive shopping spree, but to almost critically review it - especially as my summer holiday trip is around the corner and I know for a fact that temperatures will be well into the late 30s. Within this process depop plays a huge part in this, for both sourcing and selling pieces that we no longer want (f.y.i. I run our depop shop with my sister). This 'review' also is way that I like to form a capsule of both my key seasonal pieces, that already exist in my wardrobe, to help me for those days whenever I'm 'stumped' with what to wear.

In collaboration with Aesthetic Noir

Spring is fully in bloom and blossom trees are out in full force, I am definitely welcoming the sunshine and also that spell of warm weather that we have just experienced over this Easter bank holiday weekend. This weekend saw me style up a couple of new pieces that have entered my wardrobe from a brand that I have recently fallen for. Aesthetic Noir are a Toronto based fashion brand that specialise in alternative, dark, grunge clothing and accessories, aiming to provide high quality pieces but with a little something 'extra' to suit your own personal style needs. The brand stock a wide selection of pieces ranging from shirts, trousers and dresses to outerwear and accessories.

I particular was drawn to this stunning oversized "Sunnyvonne long sleeved blouse" as I love styling a good quality oversized shirt for a 'fuss-free' day-to-day look. Which on this occasion I decided to cinch in the waist by pairing it with Aesthetic Noir's classic "Nylon Tactical Belt". My second look consisted of the classic "black cotton camisole dress" which I am rather obsessed with styling for when the weather is of a 'stabilised warmth'. This dress is made from the softest cotton fabric making it the perfect summer dress, and for when it is a tad cooler I cannot wait to layer it with band tees and cropped jackets.

The animal print trend has been around for the past couple of seasons, and despite having a penchant for the ol' leopard print. I have never really ventured out into other exotic animal prints, that is until I came across these snakeskin flared trousers. As well as being one the comfiest pairs of 'extra looking' trousers I own, I have kinda fallen hard for the print. Being such a staple piece, you can simple just pair them with a black roll neck for a complete outfit and you're done! Definitely my type of styling piece to be fair.

Check trouser have been long on my wishlist for the past couple of months and despite my wardrobe being one belonging to a part-time goth (with 90% of it black) I wanted to opt for a lighter check print for these particular trousers, especially with it being the month of spring.
