I’ve moved!

Hi guys, 

You may have noticed that I haven’t posted on here for a while… 

I have now moved to http://alexalamode.blogspot.co.uk/ and my first blog post is now live! I would love for you to check it out. 

Thanks for always supporting my blog and I hope you like the new one! x

Bonjour!

I haven’t posted on here for so long! If you follow me on Instagram you’ll have seen that I was in San Francisco with work for a while, and it was my birthday last week so I’ve been pretty busy! Anyway, I’m back with an outfit post.

I am slightly obsessed with pinafores and the like at the moment, so I jumped at the chance to style these dungarees!

I think you’ll definitely be seeing more of these dungarees on my blog - they’re so versitile!

Bonjour! 

Liverpool was very lucky with the weather this weekend - on Sunday I enjoyed a sunny walk in my new wardrobe favourites

Then I got photobombed by this cutie - David’s dog, Finn

#BigUpLiverpool

Bonjour!

You may have seen if you follow me on Twitter that I was asked to take part in a very exciting project with BBC Radio 1 Xtra. They had chosen me as a creative voice in the city and wanted to include my Twitter handle in some street graffiti they were planning! I finally went into town today to see for myself…

Bonjour Autumn


Autumn/Winter is definitely my favoured season for fashion - I love layering up and I get far too excited about adding to my coat collection. I love this grey blazer ‘coatigan’ as it is the perfect transition for when it’s not too cold, but cold enough for a jacket…

What is your Autumn/Winter wardrobe staple?

Bonjour!

Apologies for being a bit off the blogging radar recently, but I’m back with another monochrome outfit post!

Firstly, I’d like to talk about the smock dress. It is not a particularly flattering dress but I think that’s why I like it. I don’t feel comfortable in clothes that cling, dresses being top of the list. This dress is also very versitle, several of the girls in the office have it too and we all wear it in different ways!


I have teamed it with my Forever 21 monochrome grid print shirt to add an extra styling edge. Be prepared to see a lot of Forever 21 featured on my blog over the next few months, as the new store is opening in Liverpool next weekend (so I’ve heard!) I am SO excited.

What do you think of this casual look?

Bonjour!


This is an outfit I wore to a recent blogger event with work, you might have seen the photos on my Instagram:

I kind of feel like a wannabe memeber of Haim when I wear this gilet (Haim, please can I be the fouth member?!) This is definitely going to be a staple of my AW wardrobe, so be prepared to see it popping up on a few future blog posts!

Join the dots

Bonjour!

You have probably seen this dress pop up a few times if you follow me on Instagram but I haven’t had a chance to blog about it.

It was a Topshop sale bargain and I really love the material and the contrast panels (and my obsession with polka dots continues…)

image

I think this is the perfect ‘dress up or dress down’ dress and will definitely be a staple of my A/W wardrobe!

image

Bonjour!

Firstly, I have a little confession to make. These photographs were taken last weekend but I didn’t have time to pop them on here!

This outfit is my favourite go to at the moment, it’s casual but still looks like I’ve made an effort! I love the combination of stripes and textures of this look

 

What do you think of this outfit? 

Be a rebel.

Bonjour!


I absolutely love Autumn/Winter fashion. Whilst I have been enjoying the recent heatwave we’ve had, I couldn’t help but get excited for it to get a little bit colder to start introducing my A/W wardrobe.

I’m loving the ‘rebel’ trend that is set to be everywhere this season, especially this tartan skirt! I love having pieces that I can dress up and down and this velvet skirt definately fits the bill!

What do you think?

Bonjour!

Online fashion site, inlovewithfashion celebrated their 3rd Birthday recently. I absolutely adore this love dress from them. The wrap shape is so flattering, and if you hadn’t noticed from previous posts, I’m also loving wearing white lately! I decided to accessorise with my Gold Lion Medallion Necklace and Cut out boots both from boohoo.com

Bonjour,


Okay, so you’re about to see the newest addition to my wardrobe. I am seriously in love with this kimono! I teamed it with some leather shorts and a simple white vest. 

I have an exciting brand collaboration coming up next time, stay tuned!

1 dress - 3 ways

Bonjour!


I can’t believe how long it has been since my last post! But, Im back with a style challenge! The lovely Chloe from Olive and Frank challenged me to pick an item from their site and style it three ways. I chose this really cute white and blue cutout gingham dress, as its not like anything I currently have in my wardrobe.

Which is your favourite look?

Bonjour!

I received this amazing Marbel Arch Satchel from British label LYDC which you can find on The Brand Village website. There is so much choice, from neon to metallics to prints! 

Okay - so let’s all just take a moment to bask in the beauty of this satchel! I have always been a handbag hoarder, and this gem has gone straight to the top of my favourites. I really love the size, as a girl who carries a lot of crap essentials around this is perfect! 

This is how I styled my new bag!

What do you think?

The Brand Village is definately a site I’ll be returning to. I have a neon shaped hole in my collection… 

White Hot.

Bonjour!


You may have noticed that white is a bit of a trend at the moment, its everywhere. For someone whose wardrobe is 90% black and very prone to spilling everything within my reach white garments are a bit daunting.

However, I seen this dress and ordered it straight away. I love it!

I absolutely love the cut out details and the scalloped hem. This is definately my staple summer dress!
