Fenty Style


STYLING: HOLLY ANASTASIA EDWARDS // PHOTOGRAPHY: JKG PHOTOGRAPHY

These joggers are everything. I am so obsessed with the Fenty look and think these Missguided joggers are such an affordable piece to bring that vibe to life. Layering my Calvins underneath to give  it that sports luxe look is one of my favourite styling details to add at the moment as well. 

I've got loads of outfits to post as I have been absent from my blog for a while. My job has just taken over the last couple of weeks, then I had my birthday and a few other things crop up. In the new year I am hoping to put together some new goals and new ideas, and actually follow up on them.

But for now though, I hope you're enjoying the last few days before Christmas...

WHY ARE YOU WEARING UNDERWEAR?


STYLING: HOLLY ANASTASIA EDWARDS // PHOTOGRAPHY: JKG PHOTOGRAPHY
JACKET: ZARA // BODYSUIT, JEANS, CHOKER: ASOS // HEELS: MISSGUIDED

Underwear is my absolute obsession. I love the way it can be just as simple as a delicate and feminine piece of clothing, but also be an empowering item in a woman's wardrobe. After seeing my instagram post, some people asked me why I was wearing underwear as a top and I loved the fact I could just say 'because I want to', leave them stunned and walk off. Some people understand my style, some don't, but that's okay.

Finding power in what I wear and how it makes me feel is something I've always loved about fashion, but it is also a hard thing to follow through with. Especially if you're surrounded with people who seem so confident in their style. I find it so easy to compare myself to other women in positions that I want to be in, or admire, without taking into account how different my life/lifestyle currently is to theirs. They might be 10 years older than me but I'm still wondering why I haven't got to where they are in their career and such like.

Role models are good to have, to aspire to and further your ambitions, however there is a fine line between admiring others and loosing yourself in that. I love the fact that fashion and the clothes you wear can express all manner of things. I'm learning not to care what others are thinking or saying about what I'm wearing or doing. There's no fun in playing safe to please others and I also don't think it's going to get me anywhere. Anyway, why can't I wear underwear as a top?

I feel like I'm slowly but surely pushing my boundaries further, exploring new looks and setting new goals. Now that I'm concentrating more on myself, rather than what others are doing, I feel more driven and successful.

I've also been thinking about my blog and what direction I want to go with it. I love the work I'm producing at the moment but I am such a perfectionist, it's unreal. This fact usually results with me always changing my mind and searching to improve on the tiniest things. So don't be surprised if in the coming months, things on my blog change up a little! 

Ultimately I think the first thing you'll see changing are my looks and the outfits I post as I use the inspirations in my life to create new and more exciting things! I'll let you into my ideas soon, but nothing's finalised yet!

OUT OF SEASON



STYLING: HOLLY ANASTASIA EDWARDS // PHOTOGRAPHY: JKG PHOTOGRAPHY
JUMPER & BAG: ASOS // SHORTS & SUNGLASSES: TOPSHOP // BOOTS: ZARA

This look is almost out of season in the UK as we're getting into the colder/wetter seasons, but I love it so had post it! Off the shoulder is one of my favourite styles as it is so casual & adds so much interest to the piece. I love the raw edge on this jumper as well. You could also use jeans to transition into the colder months with these boots & jumper, so easy!

I'm so so excited for the next lot of shoots as I've steered away from my minimalism and brought a lot more statement pieces and interesting looks, which I think reflects more of what my style and interests are becoming. Recently I've talked a lot about art & creativity, I feel that's what I've wanted to do with my blog more. I've always loved editorials and high fashion, but felt limited because of my location. Right now I think it's time to push the boundaries and show more of my passion.

Thank you so much to all of you who nominated me in the Cosmopolitan Influencer Awards by the way! I'm so grateful for the support from the beginning up to the point I'm at now & even if I don't make the shortlist, thank you so much!

I love to support other bloggers, youtubers and creatives in the same field/ industry as me. I've grown up to appreciate the art & content they're creating, whether its film, photography, writing or a fashion line. Naturally, I've grown up with a love and appreciation of art, as I studied it throughout school. As we've become more focused on technology, and I've been growing up with it, I love seeing new ways to create art.

Fashion is something I believe can also be considered as art, whether you're wearing it, designing it or photographing it. It emits a feeling, or mood, can stand for something and make statements, which I think is an amazing power. 

This body suit I'm wearing is from the Sarah Ashcroft X Missguided collection. I have always loved Sarah's work and style, so when she announced she was working with Missguided I was so excited!
I also brought some of the lace up joggers from the collection, but had to show off this body suit! It's such a comfortable fit and would be so easy to dress up for a night out, or wear out in the day! Check out the collection here

There's only a few more days to nominate me in the Cosmopolitan Influencer Awards! It would mean so much to me if you nominated me in the Best Fashion Influencer Category! Click the link HERE to do so! 
Thank you so much for the endless support!

MIXING IT UP


STYLING: HOLLY ANASTASIA EDWARDS // PHOTOGRAPHY: JKG PHOTOGRAPHY
TEE: RIVER ISLAND MENS // SUNGLASSES, SHORTS & FUR: TOPSHOP // BAG & WATCH: ASOS // HEELS: MISSGUIDED

One thing I will miss about Summer and the sunny weather, is being able to wear killer sunnies. I have a slight obsession with them and couldn't leave Topshop without picking these bad boys up. The colours are incredible, and give such a good contrast with the green/grey tones of the outfit. I have a feeling I'll be whipping these out regardless of the weather.. Although I can't wait to bring out the big jumpers & fur onto my blog!

When I was sorting these outfits out, I was lacking in inspiration a lot. I was chatting to a friend at the time and by sharing it with her, she brought the clothes into a whole new light. It's so interesting how just sharing it with a friend, brought some new inspiration to me. 

I love that I can get inspired from anything and everything. It's so easy to fall into a 'I can't do this' attitude and get stuck that way for a while, but pushing yourself to share and look at a situation differently can open up so many doors. I'm starting to myself and my looks out of my comfort zone and try new things. I feel like experimenting is one of the only ways to grow.

If you like this post I would love it if you could nominate me in the Cosmopolitan Influencer Awards! I'm entering into the 'Best Fashion Influencer' category, which I got shortlisted in last year!

A FEELING



 STYLING: HOLLY ANASTASIA EDWARDS // PHOTOGRAPHY JKG PHOTOGRAPHY
JACKET: TU // TOP: ZARA // BRA & CHOKER: ASOS // JEANS: TOPSHOP // TRAINERS: NIKE

I love the way that clothes and different looks can change the way you look so much. It's not that I'm another person when I'm wearing each piece, but the different feeling and attitude that comes from just changing up maybe one piece. That is something I love about fashion & styling; it's a bit more than just clothes, it's a feeling.

One of my favourite things to do is incorporate new aspects into an outfit. For example, using underwear as outerwear is one of the trends I am obsessed with. Unfortunately, we're not as all glam as Kim K and don't get to change up looks or go to massive events where this sort of look is deemed interesting and pioneering. As I'm mostly at work or around my town, doesn't seem like the right type of place haha!

So I have to find ways to fuse trends into wearable trends. With this look I've added a more detailed bra that shows underneath this minimalistic top. I think the string detail is a really flattering look and is an easy way to add detail if you don't like wearing jewellery or want something easy to chuck on.

RARE


STYLING: HOLLY ANASTASIA EDWARDS // PHOTOGRAPHY: JKG PHOTOGRAPHY
DRESS: RARE LONDON // HEELS: MISSGUIDED

Nudes and pinks are colours that I'm absolutely in love with right now, and this dress is one that I just had to have when I saw it! The half-cup style of the top of the dress is really flattering, and adds a bit of detailing. I find it quite hard to find a body con dress that fits well all throughout the dress, but this one is perfect fitting all over.

I paired the dress with simple nude heels, as it keeps the look minimalistic and the focus is still on the dress. It's the first piece I've brought from Rare London, and I love it! The delivery and everything was so fast as well, which is good for impatient shoppers like me haha!

I've got work for two days then I'm off to see my Mum & do some more outfit shoots with Jade this week. Sometimes it's good to get away from everything and just take a minute out, which I'm really looking forward to.

Hope you all have a lovely week!
