Shooting with David birch

Hello everyone, so I'm back with another selection of photos from the 3rd shoot I've done now with the photographer David Birch. For this shoot we decided to go for a minimalistic but slightly androgynous style, mainly due to the men's top and jackets.
Like most trends, the androgynous style needs to be balanced, for instance, the top and jacket I wore were oversized, so I added some shape with skinny jeans. You can also easily balance out this trend with makeup and hairstyles, for this shoot, I went for a bronzey makeup look focusing on voluminous lashes and a pink lip. For hair, I wore my usual wavy hairstyle.

Photoshoot with David Birch

Hello everyone! Back in January I did a post on a shoot I did with the talented photographer David Birch, and today I'm back with some shots from another shoot I did with him. For the outfit I chosemy go-to ensemble which I wear far too often, but we wanted to keep the looking fairly simple and natural. That's why for hair I did an easy side braid and kept my makeup to warm brown tones.

Underwear as Outerwear Trend - Part 2 - How I style it

Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing part two of my post about the trend 'underwear as outerwear', showing you how I style lingerie into an everyday chic outfit. To really nail this trend, the key is balancing the look with subtlety as lingerie is so intimate. You can do this by juxtaposing a lace piece with different textures and androgynous elements. I went for an oversized white tee that let this lace bralet show, giving it a balanced effect. I also put a men's shirt over the top to add to the look.
You can also colour coordinate your lingerie with accessories like I did with the shoes and Versace clutch, this ties the look together and focuses more attention on the lingerie.

Underwear as Outerwear Trend - Part 1 - My favourites

Hello guys! So today I have something that's a little different instead of my usual outfit posts, today I want to talk lingerie. Lingerie can be very intimate and personal, but the trend 'underwear as outerwear', was a daring fashion revolution that changed attitudes of our 'bedroom-only' garments. Women's sexuality has often been shamed or forbidden in the media and society, but in 2015 this trend is becoming really popular and changing attitudes about women's fashion. 

So for part 1 of this post I have some inspirations for you guys and some pieces from my favourite brands! Stay tuned for the second part of this post which will be an outfit I styled incorporating this trend.

Adore Me Lingerie

I absolutely love this brand as they have a perfect collection of lacey feminine lingerie pieces that can be worn both inside and outside of the bedroom when styled appropriately. And if lace isn't your thing, they have a huge range of products and sizes that are guaranteed to suite whatever style you prefer! The best part is they're always updating this page with our latest designs and newest collections!

After purchasing a lace bralet from Monki I instantly fell in love. Their pieces are so beautiful and comfortable and they send some adorable stickers with my purchase!
