YEEZY BOOST 500

YEEZY BOOST 500

Yeezy Boost 500 Utility Black

When the whole ‘Dad shoe’ trend first surfaced I swore I wouldn’t be one to buy into it, it just wasn’t for me. However, here we are 6 months later with the latest Yeezy Boost 500 in hand.

I’ve been lucky enough over the last couple of years to get 6 pairs of Yeezy’s but was never really fussed about the 500 model. I don’t know what it was about the shoe, I mean I quite like the look of it to be honest I just didn’t think I’d be able to pull them off or what I would wear them with.

Having passed on the last 3 pairs when I saw they were releasing a ‘Utility Black’ colour way, I decided this was the pair for me and managed to get them from the adidas site on release. (Probably the easiest pair to get so far?)

Despite them being a bit too small I couldn’t be happier with the overall look of the shoe. The premium materials combined with all the details make a really nice silhouette. I do however wonder how they would wear with the suede panels to the front.

If anyone has a 8.5 or 9 UK send me a message!

What do you think of the dad shoe trend and the latest Yeezy release?

CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE 2018

Now it’s December the countdown to Christmas can officially begin! I’m usually one of those people who start there Christmas shopping in October so to be in the first week of December and haven’t bought a single gift yet is new to me. This year has just flown – I can’t actually keep up! Throw into the mix buying a house and preparing to move and you can imagine the last couple of months have been chaos… a good chaos though. I feel like I’m finally getting somewhere.

As you may have noticed during this period my blog has unfortunately been put on the  back burner a bit. I’ve posted here and there but not half as much as I would have liked too. However, I couldn’t not do my yearly gift guide. I love seeing everyone else’s (leave a link in the comments if you have one!) so hopefully someone will find mine useful too. So instead of breaking a tradition, here is my 2018 gift guide – you can find all the links below.

AW17 Inspiration

If you’ve been following me for a while now you’ll know how much I hate the colder weather. The only good thing about this time of year is the fact you can wear multiple layers of your favourite clothes to keep you warm. As always I’m going to be keeping it causal this season, however I hope to add in some more interesting pieces with a pair of tailored joggers and a Levi’s sherpa jacket at the top of my wishlist. I also have so much time for the revival of classic Nike silhouettes such as the Air Max 95 and 97s!

What will you be wearing this season?

YEEZY SEASON 4 CALABASAS BOXY CREWNECK

YEEZY SEASON 4 CALABASAS BOXY CREWNECK

FullSizeRender 13.jpg

Despite its debut last September, the Yeezy Season 4 apparel and footwear collection  has finally started to roll out over the past couple of weeks. Featuring the usual range of premium crewnecks, trackpants, and outerwear, the latest offerings from the Kanye West and adidas collaboration also feature a new white/cream version of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2.

Along with the Boost 350 V2, the only other piece in the collection which caught my eye was the Boxy ‘Calabasas’ Crewneck – a nod to the singer and designers L.A residence.  The crewneck also ties nicely in to the recent Calabasas collection which dropped earlier this year and comprised of throwback sweaters, sweatpants and an all-new 80’s inspired Powerphase Adidas sneaker.

For me, the Boost 350 and Calabasas Crewneck were the two standout pieces from the collection, which I hoped to add to my wardrobe.

As with all the previous releases I had signed up to various raffles and had tried to bag my pair of the Boost 350 V2 on the official adidas website on the day but had no luck! I had almost given up on getting them when I received a notification that both the Yeezy Boost 350 and Yeezy Season 4 apparel had just dropped on Selfridges. Annoyingly the Boost’s sold out during the checkout process but I ended up getting the Calabasas Crewneck I wanted so it wasn’t a complete failure.

When it arrived, the first thing I noticed was how heavy it was. Made from French terry, the crewneck feels premium yet hard wearing. In terms of fit, for me it fits true to size despite it’s oversized fit. I’m a medium and I ordered a medium. Featuring drop shoulders and rib knit crewneck collar, cuffs, and hem, the crewneck sits well and looks great paired with a pair of blue ripped jeans.

What do you think of my latest pick up? Did you manage to get the Yeezy 350 Boosts? Any tips?

SS17 Inspiration

It’s been forever since I’ve done one of these type of posts! I don’t really know why I haven’t as I spend hours online and scrolling through instagram! Anyway, this is what has caught my eye lately. As you can probably tell I’m dreaming about warmer days and can’t wait for some REAL sun. After the last couple of months, I really feel like I need a week by a pool somewhere to just relax with a mojito in hand. As always, comfort is key for me –  I like to keep it casual. You will most likely find me wearing a mixture of classic sports and streetwear brands or a pair of ripped blue jeans with a classic white t-shirt.
