London Fashion Week Day Two had me visiting one of my favourite places- The Grooming Room. Forward PR never disappoints at pulling out all the stops for bloggers, press and special guests at The Grooming Room and this season was no different. I had an afternoon appointment with the Sasoon hairstylists and a nail appointment too. This had me prepped and ready to go before hitting the road to my catwalk shows!
On Day Two I wore a floral co-ord and nude duster coat from Boohoo. My necklace was Butler and Wilson and my bucket bag was from Today I’m Me.
I had some lovely orb earrings to complete my look which were from the Vivienne Westwood collection available online at Tessuti, one of my favourite sites for those special pieces. I paired the earrings with a bright lip and some lashes from the KISS collection. My hair was styled so that the earrings were on show at all times, I just love them!
London Fashion Week Day Two took me to the Morecco show. I think all the colours were used for this season’s show as each look was as vibrant as the next. A lot of flowing materials and wrapped designs were displayed during the show. It was good to see Morecco as this was my first time viewing this specific designer. The show was a part of Fashion Scout at Freemason’s Hall.
It has been too long since I did a fashion related shoot outside, so I was so happy this weekend just gone when the weather was too good not to go out and take some photos! This post I am talking about tshirt etiquette. It is more difficult than you realise to pull off a tshirt without looking too casual, or looking like you had nothing else to wear. So in this post I’m going to be talking through my outfit choices while wearing a tshirt, and perhaps the next time you go to your wardrobe, you will have a new found respect for the tshirts in there. This is Tshirt Etiquette, Love Moschino.
The tshirt in this post is from the Love Moschino range, and the website is Tessuti.co.uk. Tessuti is a great luxury boutique with some of my favourite designers so you should definitely check them out if you like this post. My Love Moschino tshirt is a great quality shirt, I always like to have a few higher end tshirts in my wardrobe as well as your standard H&M ones too for lazy days around the house. If I am going to wear a tshirt out, then I will always reach for the great quality ones like this. In the photos above I have chosen to tuck my tshirt into a high waisted pencil skirt, for me this is one of the first rules of tshirt etiquette. Always buy tshirts long enough to tuck in, as there’s nothing worse than a tshirt that is too short for your torso. If you can raise your arms without exposing belly, then you’re ok. I chose a black skirt with a white waistband as this helps to break the black up if you have dark on the top and the bottom. You can do a similar effect white a white belt, and make sure to wear skin colour tights or no tights at all. For me, this look makes the tshirt sophisticated and totally acceptable to wear to work and to go out wearing too.
Moving onto my second look, the ever not-so-simple tshirt with jeans. This look is so hard to create in my opinion. I find that although most of us feel comfortable in this go-to ensemble, very rarely do we look at someone wearing a tshirt and jeans and say to ourselves, ‘that’s a nice outfit’. In this next series of photos I’ve gone and made the tshirt the star of the show, and I’ll tell you how:
I’ve opted to tuck the tshirt into my high waisted grey jeans but just at the front. This helps to show off more outfit, and I think that it gives the outfit more dimenion, not to mention your legs will seem longer this way. I chose grey jeans because this really draws the attention to the tshirt. Colour matching is also something to consider if you have a tshirt on with colours. I’ve matched my lips to the orange/red on the Love Moschino logo. You can also do this by painting your nails a colour which matches too as this helps to bring it all together.
With tshirt etiquette, there’s nothing better than a tshirt with heels. It glams the whole outfit up, makes you feel more dressy and it will guarantee some headturns if you walk with confidence. So my last tip is wear your tshirt with pride. Practically all my tshirts have logos or symbols from Game of Thrones to Star Wars to this Love Moschino tee. I find that tshirts are a great way to express that you are a fan of something, so don’t let it go to waste- do your tshirt justice!
Next time you are thinking of grabbing a tshirt from your wardrobe, give the tshirt etiquette some thought, and see how differently you can style it, own it and rock it!

Where do I begin with The Bloggers Ball 2016? It is going to be really hard to capture the essence of this event I think as it was one of those ‘you had to be there’ events in my opinion. To sum up for you before I go into further detail, it was crazy, big, wonderful and addictive! So many bloggers and brands, so many bodies and booths to visit, I imagine it was something similar to speed dating but on steroids, and I still didn’t get to visit everyone and see everything! I’m going to talk about my favs that I did get to see and of course I have to shout out to Scarlett London for organising this grandeur affair at DSTRKT London!
Selfie Glow are are cute company just perfect for bloggers who love a good tan! Cruelty and paraben free, these guys were the first exhibitors I visited. They are US based but making their way over to the UK market this year. I hope I can work with this lovely brand soon while we have some sun in London!
Fei Liu jewellery really caught my eye. I love the elegant design of his pieces and I am still after something signature to wear on my wedding day. Fei Liu really stood out to me and the sparkle was just lovely!
I’m sure you have all heard of the longstanding brand Bon Prix. They had brought with them a few of their summer collection essentials which were fabulous! Definitely check out their site if you’re going on holiday or just feel you need to jazz up your summer wardrobe, I’m sure they will have you covered!
Bravura London are a new find for me. It was great to meet them at The Bloggers Ball 2016 and talk about their different products meant for different types of skin. I chose to trial the Glycolic acid for its abilities to reduce fine lines and breakouts.
I’m sure you’ve all had a taste of what Monin has to offer, whether you know it or not. Monin provide the syrups for Costa coffee, so those caramel lattes and hazelnut mochas are all down to this great brand. On the day, they had brought with them a lovely pitcher of lemonade which was fantastic. I didn’t know how many syrups they did until I saw the range at the Bloggers Ball- check out their site to discover all the amazing flavours, they have practically everything!
On The Beach are an online travel agency who aim to deliver great holidays at great rates. They were there on the day to meet us bloggers and also have a beach party too! There were plenty of selfies taken at their booth and the OTB team were such great fun! Really hoping to take an On The Beach holiday if the wedding budget allows this year!
Vatika are another new brand I discovered at The Bloggers Ball 2016 and I’m so glad I did. I’ve been using the Argan Shampoo pictured below since the event and it’s honestly the best shampoo I’ve ever used. Not only does it smell amazing, it creates a fabulous lather without using half the bottle, and my hair comes away feeling so nourished my hair is like silk. Definitely recommended, and I can’t wait to try out their Black seed hair mask! Available at Superdrug.
The last brand (and the most fabulous by far) is Tessuti. They are an online luxury boutique who stock both men and women’s ranges. I was immediately drawn to these guys as soon as I saw the Melissa shoes- you kow how much of a Melissa shoe collector I am! I’m really excited to be working with Tessuti after meeting them at The Bloggers Ball 2016 so stay tuned this month to see what piece I’m styling up from Tessuti.co.uk!
What I Wore
