Urban Style Edit for Autumn/Winter 2017

You know me, I love suiting up, looking smart and presentable. Although day-to-day I'm usually wearing dark clothing, mainly ripped jeans and khaki - exactly like the outfit in this urban style edit. This outfit is great especially the khaki longline parka by Religion from ASOS, which I've worn pretty much every day this week when working from home or walking my dog. At home, I like to feel comfortable, a lot of the time I just throw on a pair of shorts and wear a hooded top. To be honest if I didn't have to visit the post office every few hours, the coffee shop or have the postman drop off some parcels - I would probably just sit in my pants all day!

This outfit has been put together whilst shopping at ASOS paired with my new favourite headphones from Bowers & Wilkins, completes my look. In fact I'm wearing it right now at home whilst writing this quick post on a Wednesday night watching The Only Way is Essex and snacking on giant chocolate buttons, living the life! 

Tomorrow I'm heading out of London to Dover in Kent for a wedding, so thinking about it this is actually a really good travel outfit too. Noise cancelling headphones are a must for long train journeys and I'll be suited and booted for the wedding, so yeah I might actually wear it again tomorrow!! I hope you love it as much as I do and if you do - shop it below.

England's Beautiful Beaches - Camber Sands

We all have childhood memories of going to the beach. Growing up in Kent, I was lucky enough to be about an hour to most of England's south east beaches. I remember as a kid going to Whitstable beach eating cockles and ocean pinkies. Hastings was a favourite of mine because of the crazy golf course. Then there was Dymchurch where I recall spending all day in the amusement park. Camber Sands was also always one of my favourites, although there isn't too much to keep you entertained, it does have an incredible beach and sand dunes that you can roll down and play hide-n-seek in...ohhhh I wish I was young again!

With Summer officially ending the chances of getting a hot, cloud free day to head to the beach is going to get harder so on this sunny Monday morning Rebecca and I headed down to do this photoshoot. Camber Sands is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes from London, so a little bit of a journey but well worth it. 

Camber Sands has a vast sandy beach and at low tide the water is so far out making the beach seem much larger. Lining the beach are some amazing picturesque sand dunes, a seemingly perfect place for the locals to grab their metal detectors and start searching for lost engagement rings and other lost personal treasures. Im guessing the local job market isn't that great. 

In this Camber Sands, outfit of the day I have kept things pretty simple with a pair of cropped skinny jeans with extreme rips in a light brown colour and white tee both from ASOS. As the jeans are cropped, they are perfect to be worn with a pair of white trainers or even flip-flops. These Adidas trainers in white and gold are from resole.co.uk my first point of call when I'm looking for some sneakers at a good price. To finish off the look I have accessorised with some Ray-Ban sunglasses that I got from the opticians and experts in eyewear David Clulow who have stores all over the UK and only offer the best designer frames. Finally, I'm a massive fan of watches that are slim and not too bulky and recently Rotary have designed their slimmest design ever which I managed to get my hands on. The design is classic with a white background and gold details and when you put it on it just moulds to your wrist. Being ultra slim in design you barely feel like you are wearing a watch.
