Some Quick Snaps From Somerset House In London

Since the London trips are pretty much planned down to the last minute, I don’t really have any time to take photos of anything else other than the collections. It literally involves going from the train, into a taxi, to the location, into a taxi, to another location and so on until I get in a taxi and go to Paddington Station to get back on the train to come home.

However, when I was at Somerset House, the location was so beautiful I had to snap a few quick photos on my way out. Somerset House is actually the location where they hold most of the London Fashion Week shows, so I was very excited to visit it and check it out. It’s a beautiful place and I got to see Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the London Eye again while travelling in a taxi!

I was wearing my Diesel Jeggings, my Topshop white jumper/sweater and bag, my Zara coat, my River Island pastel scarf and my Sam Edelman Petty booties.

Luckily, while I was inside Somerset House seeing the new AW12 styles, it was pouring down with rain, but when it was time to leave, the sun came out and it dried up. It’s just a shame the second time around that I was in London, I wasn’t as lucky and did get soaked. Anyway, have any of you been to Somerset House before? And I hope you are enjoying my AW12 posts!

Pegasus Pastels

I put this outfit together a few weeks ago when the weather was really warm and since it’s now back to being rainy, cold and gloomy, I thought posting it now would cheer my weather blues up a bit and remind me that warmer weather will arrive soon! I hope… You never can tell living here!

I’m wearing a Workshop Pegasus print t-shirt (bought at Topshop), my DIY Diesel Matic shorts, my Topshop wedges, ASOS pastel gummy bracelets and my Ray-Ban Cats 5000 Havana sunglasses.

I saw this t-shirt about 2 months ago in Topshop in the boutique section and I thought it was adorable! I love the pink and purple tone and also the fact that it’s actually a print of Pegasus. I made these shorts about 3 years ago too, I had a few pairs of Diesel Matic 81M (one of my favourite jeans) and I wanted to turn one into shorts, which I love, although sometimes I feel like they are just a little too short. It’s hard getting that balance in denim shorts!

P.S – Just to fill you in as well, I attended a big press event at Somerset House in London today and I saw the new collections from quite a few brands. I will have posts to come on Coach, Acne, Pinko, House of Holland and Dodo. I fell in love with Dodo! I can’t wait to share those pieces with you!

I’ve Fallen In Diesel Love All Over Again

I couldn’t think of a title for this post that would be really interesting so I just went with how I feel. I found these jeans at the Diesel store in London a couple of weeks ago after seeing the new collections at the headquarters, and I was very lucky to be given them to review for DenimBlog. Diesel was one of my first denim loves, maybe coming up to 5 years ago. Now they have completely redesigned the women’s collection and having these jeggings really did make me fall in love with the brand all over again.

I’m wearing Diesel Jegonfire skinny jeans, an old All Saints white jersey top and my Kurt Geiger nude Eleanor heels.

Since these jeans are now one of my new favourites, I love to pair them with a really simple outfit like this one. They have so much detail on them that I love, like the moto knee stitching and the rip as well as the pretty wash, I don’t want to overshadow it. I’m really glad that Diesel did start doing jeggings, these are the comfiest pair I own by the brand! I can’t get enough of them! What do you think of them? Do you love them too? And are you all ready for Christmas?

My Diesel Jogg Jeans Feature

This is an outfit I put together for a feature on the Diesel website. They sent me their new Jogg Jeans to style, along with some other bloggers, to put together as a collection/collage on their site. I did this for DenimBlog and I had a lot of fun styling a pair of pants that I wouldn’t normally wear. I wasn’t sure what route to go down with these as they are sweat pants mixed with a pair of jeans so I decided to crop them so they hit at the calves and roll the waist band over so the crotch wasn’t as low.

I’m wearing the Diesel Jogg Jeans, a H&M white t-shirt and gold bangles, a Miss Selfridge black waistcoat and River Island white pumps/flats.

This is definitely not an outfit I would usually wear but I actually ended up loving the look in the end. What do you think of it? I found them difficult to mix things with though, I wasn’t sure if I should try to smarten them up or if I should just keep them casual like they are. They are definitely so comfy though! The feature on the Diesel website has my photo and the other bloggers and you can FaceBook or Twitter the image you like the most with the icons below each picture. There are more images in this post and you can click here to visit the website.

A Hot Day In Town

So it was boiling hot this weekend, well hot for England anyway, perhaps not hot for you Australians or LA readers, ha ha! But everyone pulled out their shorts and tees, including me. I jump at the chance to wear my Summer clothes! I just love to look out the window and see a blue sky and smile!

I’m wearing Diesel Mintha shorts I got on sale around Christmas, a River Island dog tee I also picked up in the sale last week, New Look sandals which I am in love with and orange bangle and a Topshop ring and orange bag with my Ray Ban Cats 5000 sunglasses.

I know it’s only Tuesday but I am really looking forward to the weekend now! Did any of you see Lady Gaga falling off her piano in concert? I only saw it today and I think she handled it pretty well. I do love her music! As you can see I had jelly or jello and peaches when I ate out, I love those! Ha Ha!

It’s a Diesel Auto Matic 81M

I thought it was about time I shared with you one of my old loves, my Diesel Matic 81M jeans. I got these at the very end of 2006, so they are actually one of the oldest pairs I have but they are still one of my favourites. This is the exact pair of jeans that made me fall in love with Diesel all those years ago. The wash is incredible and the fit is my favourite. I have had about 8 pairs of 81M Matic pass through my hands over the years and each wash is so different.

I’m wearing my Diesel Matic 81M, an ASOS purple top, my Zara cream coat, my ShopAkira Enigma purple heels, a Topshop double finger Love ring and a Topshop love hearts necklace.

These are the beautiful shoes that I got sent as a gift from ShopAkira, which you can see here. I adore them so much! They add so much colour to my outfits and they are really comfortable, surprisingly.

These 81M jeans are a bit tight on me now though, especially in the butt area, but they fit everywhere else. I included, at the bottom of this post, some photos from when I first got them and also another pair that I did my denim DIY on and turned into shorts for the Summer a couple of years ago. I’m also really loving double finger rings at the moment!

In Love With Diesel Staffy 8W7

Finally I have an outfit post for you all, sorry it’s taken me so long to do one. I’m glad I got to do these photos in the snow because it started to rain yesterday and it’s all been washed away now, it was so pretty but I guess the weather is back to normal. Gotta love British rain!

I’m wearing my new Diesel Staffy 8W7 jeans, my All Saints white sweater, River Island shoes, a cat hat and a Topshop butterfly black lace ring.

I’m in love with these jeans! I got them last week with a pair for my boyfriend and I have been wearing them constantly, they are so comfy! When I find an amazing pair of jeans from Diesel, it always re-ignites my love for them! I used to be Diesel obsessed and they make up most of my collection, but I branched out and now when they bring out a beautiful wash, I always get hooked again!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! Unfortunately for me, due to the illness, it was really quiet and not very festive but it doesn’t matter, what did you all do for yours? I have a new contest coming up in the new year as well on the 3rd or the 4th! I can’t wait to start it!

Pretty Purple Diesel Nevy 8N5

I have been waiting to do this post for such a long time and I’m really thankful it was so sunny on Saturday! The sun really brings out the purple undertones of the jeans. I am completely in love with these Diesel Nevy jeans, I fell in love with them when I saw them on Asos but they only had a 32 leg, the only other place I could find them in a 30 leg was a Diesel concessions store in Selfridges so I bought them right away! I just can’t get enough of them! They are the prettiest Diesel jeans I have seen since the 61X and 81M washes! They even have purple pockets and dye inside! Being so denim addicted and a huge fan of Diesel, I literally have love hearts in my eyes when I look at these, haha 😀

I’m wearing my Diesel Nevy 8N5 skinny jeans with purple undertones, my Christian Louboutin Cramberry Declic 90, my white Warehouse loose tank top, my Miss Selfridge pink and purple beaded fabric necklace and some plastic beaded bracelets I made myself a while ago.

I’m always making jewellery, bracelets and earrings are my favourite pieces to make. You can be so creative with them! I find I like to make them more when it’s sunny outside as I get more inspiration. I love designing and making things! I included lots of photos in this blog post so you can see the jeans in as much detail as possible 🙂
