top uk blogs best uk fashion bloggers london style blog outfit of the day rihanna for river island shirt*
forever 21 gilet
river island jeans*
topshop boots (similar here)


My back is still playing up loads, so I've not really done anything the past few days, hence the lack of posts. I found this outfit on my laptop that me and Ella shot a while back and thought I'd post it anyway! I really quite like this outfit, and I must make a mental outfit to wear it more often. The shirt was part of the spring summer Rihanna for River Island Collection (note: I didn't like her latest offerings, really not my taste!), and I was gifted it as part of a styling challenge I did with River Island (see here). Layering up things with furry gilets is definitely going to be a significant thing for me this coming autumn winter. Nothing I love more than being all warm and toasty!

Me and Aerys are sending our love to you all from our very snuggly bed. I'm probably heading back to London tomorrow morning as I don't want to get caught up in the weekend struggle to get to London. Although I may just wait till Monday. Being home has been very bittersweet and somewhat quite humbling for me. The last time I came back here it was in March! I start to appreciate living so much more, especially as you never know what's coming around the corner. Life is cruel, but at the end of the day it is what you make it. Seriously. Enjoy every moment.

  5. Awesome shirt - I agree, the latest Ri for RI stuff quite a big change from the other collection. Prefered the one this shirt was from! There were cute matching shorts in that print too, but they were see through.. bit annoying ha!

  20. Love your shirt and boots, I always like a full black outfit, even though I always tell myself to be more colourful.. It's just so classy to wear all black!
