OOTD | blue trench and black

Evening everyone! How are you all? It’s getting dark so so early right now here in england! I must have gotten home at 3 and had to so these photos really quickly as it was already getting dark; it’s always really cosy but it’s such a pain for running because there just isn’t any time when I can go!

Anyway, I wore today a really simple outfit, but super effective – I just had my black jeans and my black crop top on, with a grey cardigan just because it was freezing!! It didn’t really bring much to the outfit but warmth, so that’s enough for me. I then put it with my black heeled boots because the weather is too unpredictable to be able to wear pumps and not constantly fear Continue reading

Leather and Gold | topshop coated leigh’s

How is everyone?! It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here, admittedly I don’t really have an excuse – I’m always on insta so follow me! I hope you’re all well and enjoying the pre-christmas excitement!! I have done 0% of my christmas shopping/thought about what I’m going to get anyone, so good start you could say..

I was shopping (for myself) yesterday and actually returned to Topshop 3 times looking at these jeans, from working in a shop also I know that ‘the returners’ are annoying and looked weirdly upon, but I was prepared to take the fall for these. They’re the coated leigh’s and I am just in absolute LOVE with them – I was going for the Millie Mackintosh look, but also the Jenner’s go for leather and pose different outfits for me to try, so I think I’ll mix and match personas.

I also took inspiration from Beyonce’s new video, Continue reading

Fashionista Award

Hey lovelies, thanks for nominating me for the Fashionista Award! The response was delayed but nevertheless here’s the goss..

1) What motivated you to start blogging?

Kristina Bazan! Her blog Kayture really made me see how much potential there is in the fashion blog world, I came in with new ideas and a desire to share my fashion sense with like-minded people; I’m still figuring out the direction of PALMARA but it’s loads and loads of fun to dream and make it happen!

2) Favourite movies?

I have a pretty varied taste so you should probably ask ‘favourite movies for each genre’.., but Jason Bourne is always a winner.

3) What is you’re dream career? Continue reading

day to night | LBD

Happy Friday everyone! Hope everyone has had a lovely day, where I am it’s rained pretty much all day and annoying I’d straightened my hair today, however it was as if life was giving me a break as it stopped raining just as I was walking from my car to college, then torrentially rained after – I’m counting that as a good omen.

When I was finished for the day, inevitably, I went shopping and I bought this perfect LBD! I fell in love with it straight away as I love two tier things, also this one has a texture to it and is really nicely tailored – winwinwin. However as I was buying it I suddenly thought where am I actually going to wear it?! So I came up with a day to night outfit!

I think any of you could so so easily do this with your LBD, for the day I added Continue reading

lace, leather and wool

Some actual clothing content – finally!! I know it has been thin on the ground this week. I hope everyone is having a good week so far, and thank god tomorrow is friday!! Are any of you doing anything nice this weekend? I’m going away tomorrow night to Bath as I have a party there and it’s ‘choose an era’ themed so I’m going from the 60’s so there’ll definitely be an outfit post to follow that!

I ordered this jumper and lace bra from Forever 21 a few days ago as on instagram (so many of my purchases start with ‘I saw on in…’) from Continue reading

midweek inspiration

inspiration

So it’s Tuesday evening(ish) and it’s already got to that point in the week where you’re exhausted, or just me? Ok. But anyway I was scrolling through instagram the other day and Malaika Firth posted this, now I always screen shot quotes, whether they’re inspirational like this or are just really funny like that “I am Chanel, you’re H&M” and those dogs that represent different designer brands (I’ll whip them out another day), but I really really liked this one.

It’s so relatable and true, and especially with PALMARA I have such big visions for it and cannot wait for opportunities to arise so I can begin to watch it grow into what I want it to be! So, without getting all weird and emotional, I just wanted to Continue reading

Beauty | everyday makeup

Happy Sunday! Sucks that the weekend has come to an end, I hope everyone has had a lovely one! I went to see the fireworks last night and then had a gathering with some friends which was really nice, definitely over-indulged though (food + alcohol uhoh..). Aside from that I’m writing this while listening to James Bay, an artist I recently discovered from seeing that Burberry Prorsum used his song ‘Clocks Go Forward’ in their show this year from Vogue, I would really recommend that you give him a listen!

This post is a beauty one, rare I know, but I have finally found a makeup look that I like enough to wear everyday, I think when you have a busy lifestyle you need to have that go-to look that can also become ‘yours’, so I thought I’d share mine as it’s also really autumnal! Continue reading

OOTD | casual fridays

IMG_5544Happy Friday! Woo you made it, this week has flown by for me, I think when you’re really busy things just happen a lot quicker, but who’s complaining. The weather was horrible today, as I was driving I felt my car being dragged by the wind – not fun. Although now I’m drinking a cup of tea all cosy and hopefully am going to pick up frozen yoghurt to bring to my friends house as it’s delicious and it’s friday so..

Today I was actually planning to wear my cape (it sounds so archaic) but as I was getting dressed I looked outside and I just envisaged it flying away as I was walking, so I though the leather jacket is probably safer. I also thought my tartan scarf not only warmed me up but also it finished it off. I really feel it’s a Helmut Lang look with the collar up (I was about to write ‘popped’ but it just sounded too ghetto). Continue reading

OOTD | white jeans in winter

IMG_5394Evening lovelies, just to clarify I understand that it’s not actually winter and yes I am one of those really annoying people that says “winter actually starts on the 21st of November..”, I even hate myself when I say it. However it was especially cold today, the sort of morning that when you open your curtains there’s condensation on the glass (I have wooden windows, I don’t live in a hovel) and it’s just super cosy.

There is something so chic about white jeans, for me they really go with everything in my wardrobe, so today I decided to pair them with my big grey jumper – I got this ages ago and I think I’d only worn it twice? But after looking at the street style on the Vogue website I saw an outfit similar to this and thought I could re-create it. Continue reading

Black and White Fur Scarf

FullSizeRenderEvening beauties, yes I did say to myself I wasn’t going to buy anything else and yes I did break that promise and yes it is fur..yet again. It’s pretty evident that fur and leather are my weakness (whack in vodka and you’e got yourself and evening plan) but I saw this and literally dreamed about it and to me that’s a sure sign that it deserves a place in your wardrobe.

Charlotte Simone, a brand I’ve spoken about here, makes gorgeous and bright fur scarves, the only catch is that you have to hand over £300 to get one, anyway I have been looking for something as close as possible to the black and white striped one she does, to my amazement I found an exact replica!
