Festival




PHOTOGRAPHY: KATIE BRILL / STYLING: HOLLY ANASTASIA EDWARDS 

This look is a definite contented for my V Festival outfits as its so easy to chuck on and go. I love the layering look here and it means that if it gets too cold I can chuck on the check shirt underneath as another bit of warmth. Or alternatively I can take off the jacket and the top half will still have interest due to the accessories.

A body chain is essential to a good festival outfit as it just adds that little bit more; it also gives off the boho/festival vibes. This one is from Boohoo & I think wearing it gives the look more depth! 

The check shirt tied around the waist is a classic festival / summer look and so simple to pull off. I also love the look of the shirt is in lighter tones of blue & green check as well.

Exciting news that I mentioned in a recent post is that I am one of Motel Rocks' Festival Reporters! I'm going to V Fest in August and whilst I'm there I'm going to be taking pictures of everything going on & the experiences I have. I'll then do a write up for their blog which I'll show you. Finally, I'll also be wearing a whole Motel Rocks outfit at the festival so I'll be doing a blog post about that too!

I can't wait to show you!

Behind The Scenes





Here's some behind the scenes shots from our recent shoots. I love sharing a bit of what happens on shoots and how the shoots are set up. It takes me a lot of hours to organise & shoot and create each post, but I absolutely love every aspect. I get caught on my phone a lot of the time and end up with really silly photos alongside all the final photos. There's a few more outfits to show you from the last set of shoots and I'm so excited as I'm going to Sweden in a couple of weeks so I'll be able to shoot some outfits when I'm there!Can't wait to show you all more from this shoot,Love Holly Anastasia xo

Crotchet




PHOTOGRAPHY: KATIE BRILL / STYLING: HOLLY ANASTASIA EDWARDSTOP: TIGERMIST via ASOS / SKIRT: MISSGUIDED via ASOS / SUNGLASSES: RIVER ISLAND / BAG: H&M (old) / HEELS: ASOSThis has got to be one of my favourite posts/outfits ever. I am in love with all white, as I said in my recent post, and the contrast with the outfit and setting is one I love too! We went to a new location we had never shot in before and it worked so perfectly, and managed to miss the rain too.

Crotchet is one of my favourite trends at the moment and although I cannot wait to wear it in festival season, I think it looks so good dressed up as well. This top is from Tigermist and I think the structure and design is so beautiful; it cuts off at the right length and the design gives so much interest to the piece. 

Again with the colour blocking, I've chosen to mix the crotchet material with the crepe material in the skirt, to give more dimension and interest. I chose to incorporate black into the outfit to make more of an impact so I did this through the heels and bag. 

Now I've got to sort out some things, make lunch and then go off to work! It is such bliss not having to go to school anymore! 

Have a good week guys,
Love Holly Anastasia xo

Shoot Day







SUNGLASSES: AJ MORGAN VIA ASOS / DRESS: MOTEL ROCKS (SALE) / NECKLACE: RIVER ISLAND / BOOTS: NEW LOOK VIA ASOS

PHOTOGRAPHY: KATIE BRILL / STYLING: HOLLY ANASTASIA EDWARDS

Every time Katie & I shoot I feel like we're becoming more on top of ourselves; more organised, more enthused and able to create better outcomes. There's so many more things I'm thinking about when preparing my shoots now, which I love but it's definitely harder work. Anyway, these photos and others coming up are some of my favourites...

I bought this dress in the Motel Sample Sale on the 29th of May. We were going to London to see Saint Raymond (a singer for those who don't know!), so my friend Holly & I popped in to see what was there whilst the boys stayed in the pub. Hol found an amazing varsity top for only £3 & I picked up a bikini and a dress for £20! Amazing prices! 

This dress isn't something I would pick out normally as I'm not really a pattern kind of girl. I thought I'd mix it up and buy it as it would be a simple dress for a summer day. The bandeau top is a new shape for me as I don't have many clothes with this neckline but I think it is so simple and works really well. I tried it with & without a necklace and I think I'd wear it with accessories if I was going out, but for the day, I'd definitely keep it simple. Here I've just paired it with my AJ Morgan sunglasses in Tortoise Shell and my plain black boots from New Look.

I am unbelievably excited to share the upcoming photos with you but if you want to see more from me, follow me on Instagram & Twitter or you can Like my new Facebook Page to get updates exclusively about Love From Anastasia!

Have a great weekend guys,

PHOTOGRAPHY: KATIE BRILL / STYLING: HOLLY ANASTASIA EDWARDSCOAT: MISSGUIDED / TOP: H&M / JEANS: TOPSHOP / SHOES: ASOSI am in love with this White on White combination at the moment & it's becoming a major favourite of mine. My ASOS basket is full of white items so hopefully I'll shoot a few all white looks soon! I love the mix of body con and loose fitting tailoring in this outfit through the top and jeans & the duster coat; it creates such a good contrast which also accentuates the figure. This top is a bardot top in thin rib which create a mixture of texture within the whites, which I think is essential when using the same colours in a look. The Duster Coat is from Missguided and one that I've grown to love. It's lightweight and wearable which is lovely for summer, and especially transitioning from the cooler to hotter weather. If I owned them, I think I would have finished off this outfit with white heels, possibly strappy heels as I have a thing for them right now. However, I think wearing my fave ASOS heels works well too and has a strong impact on the outfit. I'll be shooting in the next few weeks and have got some new pieces that I've fallen in love with and can't wait to share with you. There's also some exciting news that I'll announce in a few weeks so keep checking back for that as it's going to be SO cool! Have a lovely week babesLove Holly Anastasia xo

Summer Inspo












Image Sources: Pinterest 

I've been obsessed with Pinterest at the moment & have found a bit of Summer inspiration. The weather is so gorgeous at the moment and it's so lovely just being able to wear light clothes and summer style! 

I'll probably post some more detailed inspiration for shoots & outfits but here's a little bit of inspiration for the moment. 

My favourite summer styles at the moment are crochet & off the shoulder. I love the effortless vibes that come from these pieces.

What's your summer staple?

Black on Black




















PHOTOGRAPHY: KATIE BRILL / STYLING: HOLLY ANASTASIA EDWARDS

JACKET: TU SAINSBURYS / JEANS & BOOTS: ASOS / SUNGLASSES: RIVER ISLAND

This is a really casual look which I wear if I need to chuck something on and get out quickly. Black on black is the easiet look to achieve as there's no questioning if colours match. When I'm wearing all black, I try and mix the textures of the clothes to give more dimension to the outfit. Here I've worn a thick/loose knitted jumper, leather jacket & plain black jeans. The shoes I'm wearing in this are a little bit off as they are grey not black but obviously to create a completely all black look, you just have to swap these for black boots.

You could dress this outfit up for a night quite easily by adding some simple court heels and a shirt - I'd probably go for a chiffon shirt just because it'll make the outfit a bit more interesting, again with all the textures.

I hope you're all having a lovely week & are enjoying these posts now that I'm back! 

Love Holly Anastasia xo
