ROCKINS



Hello, tonight I want to share a brand both Chloe and I decided to go to (without telling one other) for our Christmas presents last year. I guess great minds think alike! Still, I couldn't believe when we both opened our presents, we'd picked something from the exact same brand! How weird is that! Since we both got each other killer accessories from the same brand, that automatically means we had to do a joint shoot - right? Of course it did. The brand I'm talking about tonight is London based Rockins.




Rockins has always been a brand that I've known and loved, but sadly not owned anything from. That's all changed now as Chloe got me this amazing red lip motif bandanna. The brand is all about that rock & roll style with celebrity clients who wear their creations for instance Keith Richards, Kate Moss and Rod Stuart to name a few all have their very own Rockins scarfs. The brand started in 2014 and sky rocketed to fame by their killer range of bullet scarfs (skinny scarfs) which now the brand is recognised for, as well as branching out and creating a lot more vintage inspired pieces!




As you can see their simple bandanna is such a cool and versatile piece, you really can wear it in so many different ways! Their pieces are made from the finest quality materials and feature individual prints including paisley, rock and roll iconography and an eclectic blend of nostalgia and striking graphics.

The collections and prints really do look like something straight out the seventies! Even the way the items are packaged is amazing, my Lip Paisley bandanna came in a vinyl sleeve and Chloes' Stardiags Scarf came all wrapped in an old C.D case with a sweet little Rockins graphic on the front. How cool is that!




I decided to go full on seventies for the shoot, wearing flares and one of Chloe's super cool satin shirts. I agree, it is a big look, but I wanted to create an outfit which reflected Rockins as a brand, as they now make a lot more than just their core range of accessories. This week my YouTube features a look across on their website, where you can see my top picks of what Rockins now create, plus a chatty catch up with your's truly.




If you've not checked out Rockins I totally recommend you go check their killer pieces out across on their website (linked below). Both Chloe's scarf and my bandanna are both made from crepe de chine which is a silk and the quality of the pieces are great! I always wear skinny scarves and bandanna's as I love the added detail they give to a look. Rockins have aced it and are my new favourite brand for accessories.

ZEBRA JUMPER




Alright guys, hope you all had a great weekend! Tonight's post features the first item I've picked up in the January sales. It's this sweet, grey zebra jumper that I am loving. I've been needing more knitwear in my wardrobe for a while now and this on trend yet super cool print jumper was just the piece I've been looking for.






Trying to find a warm yet comfortable jumper that looks cool and obviously fits with my whole style and ensemble is pretty hard to get hold of. However, as soon as I found this in the TRF section of Zara I knew I needed it! The TRF sub-brand of the high street store is actually targeted more to the younger end of their female audience, but as you can see has some serious style when worn by the opposite (and older) sex.






Obviously I paired it with a leather, but I'm not here tonight to talk about that, this post is all about the jumper! The black and grey zebra pattern looks killer as well as looking a lot more expensive than it actually is. I picked up this piece for a steal at £12.99!






The slight downside which I've also mentioned over on my YouTube video is that the sleeves are quite a strange cut. As you can see I've folded and rolled both sleeves to get a length more fitted to my size, as originally they're more of a three quarter length design.





I added a few details to this look including a silver chain on my jeans which I've worn in a few outfits of late but now I'm finding it hard to leave the house without it! I really like this chain and I think you'll be seeing a lot more of them this year. If you haven't got yourself one already, I'd get out there and put yourself one step ahead of the game.



Necklaces also played a sweet little roll in this outfit too, I wore a handful of my newer silver chains, one which I picked up just the other week. I've been wanting to wear this ring for a while but have only just found a chain I like, the other antique and of course the main statement piece, Tant D'Avenir Paris, which was another gift I was lucky enough to get for Christmas. How cool is that hand though!?



Wearing this jumper under a jacket of any kind is the main purpose I bought it, the sleeves are a slight downside but as you can see are fixable when styling the jumper into your outfit. I really like the jumpers style and pattern and wanted to highlight again how items you can pick up from the women side of the store can be easily integrated into your wardrobe and style!





I'd love to know if you've picked up anything killer in the January sales, especially knitwear, a few more pieces are still on my list!

Cheers and I'll catch you all next week,
