ds1 ds2 ds3 ds4 ds5 ds6 ds7To celebrate the launch of the new DS 3 car I was challenged last week to head to Westfield London and find an outfit inspired by Iris Apfel, the face of New DS 3.

Last Saturday I went down to check out the car which was also in Westfield London and get some inspiration.The DS 3 has all the charm you would expect from a Parisian car and is widely customisable to fit your style and offer maximum comfort.

To celebrate the launch of the new Stylish DS 3 and DS 3 Cabrio they have collaborated with the amazing fashion icon and business woman, Iris Apfel. Her style is avant-garde and possibly not you would typically expect from a 94 year old lady. The fashion icon is known for her bold combinations of patterns, jewellery and accessories as well as her oversized glasses.

Taking inspiration for both Iris Apfel and the DS 3 I headed to the shops to find something that would also fit my style and work with my current wardrobe. I found this Zara dress which I fell in love with, I love the mixture of prints and the bright colours which I actually rarely wear. Although Iris Apfel always opts for flats I love heels so I teamed it with some over the knee heeled boots and I love the look.

I must admit I really fell in love with the car and the Cabrio is particularly impressive!

 It’s hard to believe since it rained to heavily (and was so cold) the whole of yesterday but we actually had some lovely weather here in London on the weekend. I had a few new bits which I was looking forward to wearing and felt that the nice weather would be a great reason to do so.

I’ve been trying to get myself out of jeans and was browsing the internet for some shift dresses that I could wear with tights when I came across this pinafore which caught my attention. The fact that it’s black appealed to me instantly, I like the length of the skirt, especially as it’s getting a little colder and I have nothing like this in my wardrobe. It’s the perfect dress to take you from summer to autumn (which starts tomorrow!) and I’m looking forward to playing around and layering it over jumpers when the weather gets a little colder.

This time I put it over this very pretty and easy to wear Zara T-shirt, it’s nothing too fancy but I think that the pattern is almost lace like and makes it more versatile.

My shoes were also a recent purchase which you may have seen in my recent Primark Haul (link here), I love Primark heels as I find them very comfortable and of course quite inexpensive too. I love these as I’m really into both lace-up and pointy heels- and these are both! I wore this for quite a while this day and they were no different to my previous Primark heels, very comfy but also really pretty- and all for £14! Along with the shoes, my jacket is also Primark (£25)- it’s a great colour, inexpensive and perfect for this type of in-between weather.

My Parfois bag was a holiday purchase and although I usually sling if over my shoulder I instead opted to tuck in the handle and wear it as an oversized clutch. These Quay glasses also pretty much haven’t left my face for the past few months and I’m sad that the summer sun is disappearing away and sooner or later these will have to put away too…

It seems that Autumn is well and truly on the way, judging by the thunder that kept everyone up last night and the fact that I go absolutely soaked this afternoon. As soon as autumn comes I pack away all my summer clothes and bring out my autumn uniform which is made up of ankle boots, dark jeans, jumpers and my trusty leather jacket. It’s warm and comfy which is exactly what I look for but also looks okay. 

That said it’s been quite warm which means I haven’t quite had been able to wear all my huge wooly new jumpers which I’ve been very excited about.
Took these photos at Alexandra Palace which is a beautiful place to visit if you’re ever in North London although it doesn’t quite compare to Primrose Hill. It’s worth taking a trip to Muswell Hill for all the boutiques too if you’re in the area.
I’m absolutely in love with Reiss at the moment although it is a little pricey the quality is great and some pieces are a little more affordable or simply just worth the investment. This leather jacket is pretty perfect for all year round but the boots are my absolute favourite and are incredibly comfy.
I also have a new rose gold watch from Olivia Burton which I haven’t been able to remove. It goes perfectly with everything and I love that the strap is navy and not a standard traditional black. It’s not dissimilar to one which I already have but I love the bigger face. 
Are you excited for autumn clothes? Would you like more outfit posts?

Nike Air Max £95
I mentioned in my July Favourites how much I love my Nike Air Max’s and I’ve been lusting over another pair for a while. I love these ones as they’re simply black and grey with a slight pop of pink but a nice quite subtle pink.

Bourjois Bronzing Powder £7
I have two of the new variations of this bronzer but would love to try the original, I have no idea how I’ve never tried this Cult product.

Chantecaille Future Skin £58
It’s probably quite clear why this is still on my wishlist and I haven’t purchased it. I tried it on in Space NK and it made my skin look so much better however at almost £60 I think this product will be living in my wishlist for a while longer!

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella £18
I recently saw someone wearing this and it looked amazing, it’s the perfect colour for any season and any occasion. Can’t wait to finally add this to my collection!

Nars Creamy Concealer £22
Everyones been raving about this concealer and now that I have finally added the Laura Mercier Camouflage Concealer to my makeup bag this is the next one I want to try.

Zara Leather Court £49.99
I’m on the hunt for the perfect pair of nude pointy shoes and these seem perfect!

Zara Mini Shopper £29.99
Sadly I don’t need another handbag but how perfect is this Zara shopper?! I would love it for everyday wear and even to take to the beach!

 We’ve been having some decent weather here in London so I thought I would get my new white jeans out for the bank holiday weekend. I’ve wanted a white pair of jeans for a while but wanted a pair that weren’t transparent of course. Everyone recommended the Topshop Leigh Jeans and they were right, they aren’t transparent however I found them to lose this shape and become quite baggy and I am not sure why.

 I teamed my jeans with one of my favourite floral shirts which I purchased a while back in a Zara Sale and have got a ridiculous amount of wear out of. Since white makes my (already large) legs looks even thicker I wanted to go for a pair of nude shoes to elongate my legs and these are yet another Zara Sale purchase which I actually don’t wear very much as they just aren’t that comfortable.

My sunglasses are a new pair of Ray Ban’s which took a fair bit of consideration, I know I love the Ray Ban Wayfarers however everyone has them and I wanted something a little different. I went for the Ray -Ban CATS 1000 in Black as they are fairly big, slightly cat eyed but still very elegant and I am very happy with my decision!

I’ve also got a new Links of London bracelet which I am in love with which is the Skull Friendship Bracelet. I love this type of bracelet for the summer and I can’t wait to stack it up with lots of other bracelets. The skulls and gold colour make it completely my type of bracelet and I am sure I won’t be taking it off over the next few months!

What did you do this weekend? Do you have a pair of white jeans?
