I just turned 22 and it definitely snuck up on me. You never realise how quickly life is moving until your birthday comes around. I’ve lost friends, gained friends, fallen in love and made mistakes, both big and small. For the first time in a long time, I am feeling optimistic about getting older and I am finally embracing all the highs and lows that come with being an adult. I usually don’t look forward to my birthday because my birthday is usually a sad reminder that I am not where I thought I would be at certain points in my life. My biggest fear in life is not achieving everything I want to achieve. However, this year I have decided to embrace my new age and acknowledge the fact that everyone else is still figuring it out.

Some days I am in the mood to go full glam but other days, all I want to do is throw on a hoodie and be comfortable, but comfort does not have to mean sacrificing your style. Everyone has that favourite hoodie in their wardrobe, making an appearance after a long day or during lazy winter days. Hoodies should not be cast away as something that only makes an appearance when we’re binge watching something on Netflix but it could be something that you can wear any day, any time, no matter if it’s summer, spring or winter outside. I recently embraced wearing a hoodie and dressing down a lot more so I decided to put together some casual style tips to try an elevate an outfit on any lazy day.
The collection by the Korean-born, London-based designer was everything I love in a collection, minimal, impeccable tailoring and great presentation. The designer opted for a presentation to reveal her SS17 collection because according to the designer, the collection is ‘in need of a closer look’.

The block-heel has been the shoe of the moment for a long time now and its popularity does not appear to be faltering anytime soon. At 5’5, I am grateful for the extra inches that heels give me but as someone who wears heels all the time, I am thanking my lucky stars that sensible shoes are dominating the fashion world right now. From sneakers to block heels, the styles are just as practical as they are stylish.

The ultimate bomber jacket! And its pink
2Bag: Gucci Soho
4Shoes: Steve Madden
The bomber jacket is here to stay, it is the must have jacket of the season and the perfect throw-it-on piece. The bomber can rescue any outfit, and adds an instant cool factor. It is not solely an off-duty piece, pair it with a voluminous skirt or dress. The bomber jacket can also be worn with a classic white shirt and jeans or wear it as I have with an all black outfit and a DIY distressed pair of jeans.
