Solange: The Style Icon

Solange is without a doubt my favourite of the Knowles sisters; she's fearless, stylish, outspoken and is a proud naturalista! She always takes fashion risks by mixing prints and bold colours, and has the ability to transform from edgy hipster to chic minimalist effortlessly. I'll let the images do the talking...

Travel Bucketlist

Anyone who knows me will know that I'm 110% obsessed with travel, I have an extensive list of destinations (a mixture of cities and countries) that I'd like to visit, and I mostly try to go abroad at least once a year. Whilst I'm not expecting to get through my entire bucket list any time soon, I've broken down the list into three/five priority trips that I would like to take within the next 3 years.

Carefree Adventure Holiday
Take this how you will, but it's always been my dream to take a once in a lifetime long trip abroad; somewhere hot and exotic, to have fun, relax and completely unwind. This is the kind of trip I'd take to celebrate the last of my youth before I have real 'adult' responsibilities in life.

A poor woman's Birkin!

I have to admit, since Hedi Slimane dropped the 'Yves' I haven't really paid much attention to YSL as a brand, however a recent post on Selfridge's Instagram page made me strongly reconsider. Low and behold the brand's Classic Sac Du Jour Bag caught my eye; not only is it structured, minimalist and timeless, but it also greatly resembles the much conveted Hermès Birkin bag but with a much more affordable price tag. Until now the Céline Mini Luggage Tote was my perfect 'want one in every colour' bag, but I think the Sac Du Jour in Earth could be the perfect addition to my wardrobe, and would be a nice alternative to my current go-to bag.
