Autumn has been thrust upon us with such force that it would take a shield to keep you upright, or at least a thick overcoat – which conveniently is included in my payday wishlist (not intentional, I promise!)
I have gathered up some of the newest arrivals that have caught my eye from all over the fashion market and bought them to you in a nifty little post. I mean, who doesn’t love treating themselves to a cute little jumper and wrapping up warm whilst leading up to the colder months? I sure don’t.
So I have decided that I want to start creating an interiors section on my blog because it is something that I am absolutely loving at the moment. If you follow me on any social media *all links at the top of the page*, then I’m sure you will have noticed that I’ve just gone absolutely mental for everything to do with interior design, textures and creative spaces. I am also in the process of completely redecorating my bedroom, transitioning it from a teenage boy’s playroom to an adult space where I can relax and write.
Hello everyone! Happy Autumn and Happy September! (Can someone tell me why this bloody year is going so fast ???)
As it’s getting colder and layering is inevitable, I thought I would bring you guys the best jackets on the market.
I tried to bring different styles, ranging from parkas, to bombers and macs. I think it’s important to have a variety of jackets as the English weather is so erratic that it’s sometimes difficult to actually know what coat to throw on.
It’s September next week (woah!), so with not long until Christmas, I thought I would express my feelings with you all about it. *see back of tshirt*
Anyways, with that irrelevance off my chest, I will share with you what I really wanted to say. It’s a brand that speaks directly to my heart. One that puts precisely my mood onto an item of clothing.
Five Pound Tee are a brand that does exactly what it says on the tin – FIVE POUND TSHIRTS. Their idea of inexpensive quality can appeal to each and every one of us, so creating designs for the masses is essential.
I got challenged by House of Fraser to look through the past fashions of Awards Shows and create my own lookbook for an outfit worthy of the red carpet.
The department store teams up with the BAFTAseach year to show that British men have what it takes to shine when in the spotlight.
Here’s some of the inspiration I took from previous years.
My three outfits got more casual as I went along because I wanted to show that a blazer doesn’t have to be worn with a shirt and suit trousers to work.
My first look does pair the blazer with a shirt and formal trousers to create the ultimate sophisticated outfit that could be worn anywhere – especially worthy for any of the red carpet events.
My second look comprises of wearing the blazer with a jumper and skinny black jeans. Wearing a jumper can still be considered to be smart and going for the right colour really helps – I went for a deep red as it’s bold and formal. And there’s nothing wrong with skinny black jeans, they’re definitely something that every man should have in his wardrobe as they can dress up or dress down an outfit.
My third, and most casual look, consists of a floral t-shirt, jeans and trainers. I know this might not be suitable for the red carpet, but for everyday it can be perfect. Floral for spring (duh), comfortable jeans and appropriate trainers make for the best casual look that is completed by the blazer.
Let me know what you think and feel free to comment how you’d style the blazer!

It’s April, hooray! And hopefully it will start to get warmer from now on. But you know British weather and how it likes to surprise us with torrential downpours and deadly blizzards.
Regardless, I thought I would bring you guys a summer wishlist – being super optimistic that the weather does actually start to get better and we can began wearing short sleeve tees and short shorts.
This wishlist comes entirely from Joules and their impeccable collection that deals with the basics, but with the guaranteed quality that we always look for.
Their range of clothing should be warmly welcomed into every person’s wardrobe as they resonate class and impeccable style.
Whether you’re opting for the casual tee or going a bit smarter with a collared shirt, Joules have you all sorted this summertime. Their range of tees would be a perfect addition to your suitcase for your holidays. And the shirts are ideal for those warm nights when you want to keep it “smasual” (yep, I’m making that happen!) if you’re going for a meal.
The brogues. I mean, do they even need any description? A man can never have enough smart shoes. Whether they are worn with a fresh pair of chinos or rocked with some shorts (oh, look, I’ve picked some out you!), your feet will be envied by all.
The phone case is just a little novelty item that I chose to try and tempt the weather to be a bit nicer, even if it doesn’t actually deliver.
And because you never know what will happen, Joules have you covered (literally) with their stunning range of coats. So if you want to throw something over your outfit that will practically save your life if it does rain, then you know where to look. They have rain macs, lightweight bomber jackets and quilted jackets to suit every mood.
So there you have it, my Summer Wishlist from Joules and their range of summer items.
Do let me know your opinions on the pieces I have chosen and especially if you have been inspired to make a purchase!
As some of you may know, I attended London Fashion Week working as a writer for Noctis Magazine (check out my work on their website). This was such an amazing time for me, it felt awesome to be able to write, get my work published and be immersed in the atmosphere of LFW – something which I’ve dreamt of for years.
So now I’m back to everyday life and normality. *sigh*
But all is well and I have another Outfit post to share, with a great accessory addition to my outfit.
This bracelet, from Anchor and Crew, is the perfect accompaniment to any outfit – especially in the summer.
They offers a great range of bracelets that incorporates rope and chains to reflect the ideology of the brand.
I know it’s moving onto warmer weather and I should be transitioning into t-shirts and shorts, but there’s still a little nip in the air – hence why I haven’t paired this bracelet with a beach outfit.
I went for the turtle because, c’mon, you can’t go wrong with a turtle neck!
I covered myself up with my leather jacket because it pretty much goes with every outfit. It can also be worn in the summer as it isn’t too thick – I’m looking forward to wearing it out and about in London this summer and sharing with you guys!
And these jeans. For some reason, they are my new thing. I’ve always believed that you can’t go wrong with a good pair of blue jeans, even for a guy!
