It's been a long time since I've posted an outfit post. Toni and Guy kindly gave my hair a subtle update for summer. Far Fetch sent me a belt I've wanted to own but never quite buckled (lol, soz) into buying. Then came the fresh New Balance lacing and finally, I plucked up the courage to get back in front of the camera - just me, wearing some clothes, for no reason other than to post it on the internet.

In all honesty, I sort of lost sight of the point of it all. Then I remembered, that's how and why I am where I am right now, so...here I am having jumped on the off-the-shoulder shirt trend bandwagon and posting said over-worn trend on the internet.

You know when you first listen to a song and it's sort of alright but you wouldn't necessarily save it to your Spotify favourites BUT then, the radio plays it five times a day and by the end of the week you're hooked and know every bloody word? Ring any bells? Well, swap the song with the off-the-shoulder shirt and the radio with Instagram and that, my friends, is what's happened with this shirt. There's an off-the-shoulder shirt being worn on every other Instagram post and rather than getting sick of seeing it, I ultimately fell for it too. And be it boring/on trend/whatever - I'm fine with that.

This estate in north London is an editorial paradise. Rows and rows of brutalist concrete houses make for an incredible backdrop. There are so many different locations situated within the one - you could shoot here for hours without repeating yourself.

In other news, I'm currently writing this in Hong Kong airport waiting on my connection flight to Australia so, that my friends is where my next outfit update will be coming from. Don't say I don't treat you!
