Topshop Top Picks

A fashion look from March 2015 featuring Topshop, gray t shirt and biker jacket. Browse and shop related looks.

Whenever I am out shopping, without fail I will always go into Topshop. If there's a Tophop I'm there! It's my first thought when I'm after something new for my wardrobe. I am a self confessed Topshopaholic. Seems as I'm there so often, I thought I'd share with you my Topshop top picks! Things that have caught my eye whilst looking around.

1. Topshop cotton trench coat
Okay, now I bought this for myself last week so ofcourse it's  top pick! I'd been after a trench coat for a while and this one is just perfect! It's a classic style and it's definitely worth buying, a fashion staple which will never go out of style!

2. Orange biker jacket by Goldie
This one I spotted online, it's right on trend! Orange is always an in colour around spring time. This jacket would give a pop of colour to any basic oufit and would look super cool and trendy with a pair of skinny jeans! It's a lightweight material which means it's wearable on warmer days.

3. Moto black denim dungarees
I'm a lover of dungarees. I think these black ones are really stylish and would look great dressed up or dressed down, wear them with a nice pair of flats and a stripped top for a super chic effortless look.

4. High crown fedora hat
I love statement hats and this one is a must this season, a perfect piece as we head into spring, stylish but will also keep you warm! A floppy hat looks pretty on everyone, and can add that wow factor to a simple outfit!

5. Magnum ankle boots
I've been looking at these boots for a while now and I love everything about them! The shape, the colour, the simplicity.

6. Got my eye on you motif tee
I like this tee and I'm really into grey at the moment. A grey tee looks awesome with skinny jeans and ankle boots for an off duty look! This tee is is just too cute.

7. Moto bleach authentic ripped jeans
I love everything about these jeans. They have that vintage look to them, bleached denim sand ripped. You can't go wrong, as we move away from our dark denim into something a little more lighter.

8.  Zip through pinny dress
I keep looking at this dress every time I'm in topshop. Pinny dresses are right on trend at the moment and this one is really caught my eye. I love the colour and the way it zips up straight down the middle.

9. Leather wrist strap clutch
A cute little bag, perfect for day or night. Mint blue is one of my favourite colours to wear around spring, it's so fresh. I am loving croc design on this bag. It's so simple and pretty.

10. Fringe ankle boots
Now these are a must this season, with fringe parading up and down the catwalk you'll be wanting to parade a bit of fringe too! A soft suede with fringe detail, these boots are perfect if you're channelling your inner bohemian beauty!

Staying warm in the City


Another look from last week, last Saturday to be precise! Lately I find myself mixing together a lot of brown with denim. I think it's a great combo! Especially as we head into spring. Trying to stay warm and casual, I opted for my faux fur coat from Miss Selfridge as it still feels a lot like winter. Okay my shirt is not denim, but almost looks it, instead its a super soft cotton, which is great if you want to feel a little more comfortable, as well something lighter is ideal for spring. My favourite pair of high waisted skinnies are from Topshop, my go to for high street jeans; great quality and comfort! My necklace is from Forever21 and my bag is by Jasper Conran.  Now for my favourite part of the outfit - the boots! My newest addition to my ever expanding shoe collection.... These knee high leather boots are from Topshop! I can't get enough of them.

When in doubt, throw on a great coat and feel fabulous




Okay so it was freezing cold in the city last week. So it meant I got to wrap up warm.... kinda. This is now one of my most favourite coats! I got it In December from coast and I love it, the lace detail and faux fur add so much glam, not to mention the fit is perfect. Something I always keep in mind is if you're not sure what to wear, throw on a fabulous coat and your favourite pair of shoes and you can look and feel instantly fabulous! The top I am wearing is from Miss Selfridge, I love the ruffles. The leather look skirt is from H&M.  The bag is from New Look. I'm really into box clutch's at the moments. I think they look great in the day, not just for a night out. My ankle boots are from Kurt Geiger ofcourse!

A luxury gender neutral footwear brand by Nik Kacy

So for as long I can recall, going into shoe shops, there has  always been a women's section and a men's section. Why is this? What makes that shoe more suitable for a man to wear than a woman or vice versa? As a woman are you  inclined to shop only from the women's section, or as a man are you limited to only wearing footwear from the men's section even though you've just seen a killer pair of ankle boots in the women's section you know you could rock with your favourite pair of skinny jeans? Only to realise they don't stock your size...

Nik Kacy is one on of first luxury footwear brands who describe their footwear as gender neutral. How cool is that? There's no categorising, just fabulous footwear anyone can pull off.  Nik Kacy's first collection consists of 5 different styles of shoes; the Classic Derby, the Wingtip Derby, the Desert Boot, the Dress Boot and the Monk Boot. Kacy plans to introduce traditionally feminine and non-traditional styles in the future.  He also says that he wants to show the shoe industry that our community matters and that style should not be defined by gender. Another reason to love Nik Kacy footwear - For every 50 pairs of shoes that are purchased through their kickstarter campaign, 1 pair will be donated to the Los Angeles LGBT youth centre.

So what are your thoughts? Do you prefer having separate sections for men and women's footwear or do you think this will soon catch on  with many other brands?
