Stopped this girl as soon as she stepped out of the Oxford Circus train station yesterday as her style immediately drew my attention. The Givenchy sweatshirt is a person favourite for me as I’ve been crazy about them as soon as I saw that they were Renaissance inspired! The Renaissance era is one I would have loved to have been born in and so I try to immerse myself in the art and culture of that time period whenever I have the opportunity to. Unfortunately my bank account doesn’t always allow me to do so. As my father says, it would take me up to five years to save up for a Givenchy Sweatshirt on my own BUT there is a reason as to why I’m his favourite daughter ๐Ÿ˜‰

I was waiting outside the Topshop in Oxford Circus for a friend and noticed this girl and her great style. Sometimes the outfits that people wear look to have been thrown together by mistake as though that person had just woken up and picked what to wear with their eyes still glued shut as they reminisced about their dreams. This ensemble was definitely not from that criteria.

Seeing the lapelled coat and silk printed shirt paired with the skin tight white trousers and tan brogue shoes literally brought a smile to my face. I especially liked that her Mint green headphones (Amazon) corresponded with her outfit. Only the truly fashion savvy are able to tweak their accessories to flow with their garb.

She was also really sweet and even complimented me on the necklace I had been wearing. The surprise that registers on people’s faces when I ask to photograph them for this blog really does make my day because I know that it, in a way, makes theirs ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope everyone has a lovely week! Bjs **
