Hump Day




It's midweek and I'm feeling a little 'meh' this afternoon as I can feel a cold coming on strong but this is what I wore yesterday to a meeting, followed by a bunch of errands in the city.

If only life were as simple as black and white.



There is always that one annoying person during summer that goes on about how they rather it was Autumn so they can wear more layers etc, unfortunately that person happens to me me amongst my friends. But hey, there's no shame in my game! I have already switched all my blankets in for thicker duvets, traded in my favourite Peach Iced Tea order at Costa for hot chocolate. And after rearranging my wardrobe during the weekend, stocking away most of my summer gear, I can happily say my wardrobe and I are now welcoming Autumn with arms open wide.

Jump From Paper Launch Party.


With a face mask soaking into my face as I type this, I am spending my Saturday night being the multitasking Queen that I am. Researching, writing and relaxing is a great combination if you ask me. But while I take a break from the research and writing part, I thought to share some photos from last night's launch party.
Located in Shoreditch, the Jump From Paper launch party was a fun way to kick off London Fashion Week. With good music (courtesy of Shy), free drinks (Why do I always get weird looks when I order juice?) and a lovely bit of socialising, which of course I love the most.


Above are a few items from the Pink collection. I couldn't believe they were real bags until I actually tried one on. But you'll find that they are very spacious and have an expanding zip at the bottom, some are big enough to fit a laptop/books. I think they're a super fun idea, I love the cartoon-like effect with the bags. And I was so excited to receive one of the purses in my goodie bag. - Thanks guys, I love it!

The typical Wahiba outfit.




Okay maybe not "typical" as sometimes I even surprise myself with what I end up leaving my house in. But this is definitely a version of something I would wear casually on a day-to-day basis to run errands or to grab a coffee with a friend. It's easy to wear and comfortable. - You can't go wrong with a cotton shirt and jeans.

In Jumpsuits We Trust!



There are days I wake up instantly wanting to doll up, and then there are days like today where I just want to hop into one of my oversized jumpsuits and get the day over with. I like jumpsuits fitted for an evening look, but definitely a little loose and rolled up like this for a daytime look. And to avoid looking like I just got out of bed, I popped on my nude heels and Russian red lipstick by MAC.

It's every bloggers dream to be sitting front row during Fashion Week, but I just want a front row seat at The Row fashion show.


A girl can dream right?
I've been catching up online on Style.com with all the shows I've missed and I am obsessed with The Row's Spring 2015 collection! - The lengths, colours and textures are perfect, everything is neat, draped, modest and classy. - I am very much inspired by this collection.
You guys will learn more from my future style posts that I'm a true believer of the 'less is more' modesty mantra. And as I have grown older, I find silhouettes, and neat cuts sexy in comparison to showing a lot of skin and sometimes it's difficult because of current trends and not being able to find that kind of clothing within my price range. So you can only imagine how exciting it is come across collections like this one, Jill Stuart's and Victoria Beckham, who all have designed really classy, minimal, feminine pieces. Of course not everything is as modest as I would like, but they have a few looks that I can admire and draw inspiration from and recreate more affordable versions of my own.

I've hand picked some of my favourite looks from The Row's new ready-to-wear collection below. Let me know what you guys think.
