The DIY Denim Jacket.
This amazing denim jacket is from Dirty Disco, you can find them online on there website and on ASOS Marketplace.
How to styles your mules this summer!
The SS16 Trend is to team your mules with frayed denim jeans for a cool, casual look. Try a pair of kick flare jeans or a slouchy cut off pair of mom jeans then add some fishnet pop socks for that extra edge. You can find these in Primark at the moment or if your willing to spend a little more Wolford.
I really love these velvet gold socks, add a cute feature sock when teaming your mules with a summer dress or skirt.
Topshop are now selling an almost identical style loafer to the Gucci classic which we wish we could afford. You can also find a backless take on the mule this means you can still wear your favourite black leather classics in the heat of summer, although they may get a little sweaty!
The perfect way to re-vitalise your old denim jacket! The lovely illistrator Alexandra Cook also makes and sells some super cute ones on her website. The fruit ones below are from UNIF and then the single ones are Lazy Oaf who also do some cool badge designs on there website.
May Style Inspo.
Here's a few images to give you some style inspo this month. Nothing beats a classic Burberry trench! Perfect to throw on in this typical British weather, teamed with a pair of black jeans and some black brogues for a timeless look.
This metallic midi skirt is right on trend, teamed with some Nike Cortez trainers to dress it down and a frill sleeved blouse for a fun and flirty look. I love this look with the scarf tied around the belt loops of your jeans to add a little extra. Teamed with a black poloneck for a cute but chic day outfit for someone on the move.
A white Thrasher Tee teamed with a black blazer and some cut off shorts. Accessorize with chunky jewellery for an edgy, street style. These white blouses are so cute, watch out for items like this in high street stores which add a little extra to your outfit best worn with some kick flare jeans.
Leading the way for cool, casual, street sportswear... forget Supreme / Fila / UNIF or the recent collection of Tommy Hilfiger in Urban Outfitters.
Ader Error is taking an innovative approach to how it makes its clothing and marketing, a way that is such a breath of fresh air to the industry. Ader Error is a mix between Vetements and Palace. Although it may seem a little to out there, sleeves that reach your knees may be a little impractical but other brands should definitely take note.
Most of the items are all unisex making it non gender bias. The next collection is available to order from the 25th May and I'm telling you it will sell out. Based in Korea means the only bummer is shipping as the collection is quite pricy this on top means it does work out quite expensive. Even if it's not your style the website and styling is definitely worth taking a look at!

The Gypsy Skirt
I picked up this skirt in a charity shop for £3 and it's finally warm enough to wear it!
I love the tiered midi gypsy style, I have teamed it with an off the shoulder black top, suede black jacket and cycle shorts (just incase).
P.S If anyone wants to buy me this car it would be greatly appreciated!

Teamed with a Temperly London off the shoulder top and Eyevan tortoiseshell glasses for a geek chic look.

Ronan Mckenzie - Photographer
The most insperational email I ever received...
All my shoots are super small, just me and the model - I style all my own shoots - I don't do makeup and either I or a friend/family does the hair. I recently moved to Lisbon but I'm back in London a lot shooting and seeing family etc, so all my shoots are local around my area and home. If I'm totally honest with you I don't really believe in assisting up to a certain point, obviously learning from other people is great and I've assisted a few great stylists over a few months when I quit CSM, but my introduction to photography was when I styled a test shoot for Piczo and he let me take a few photos too. After that I just started organising my own model tests and getting in touch with magazines, using references a lot to learn and with every shoot I'm still learning. I think sometimes especially in London assistants and interns are just taken the piss out of and it's become the norm to spend your time doing free work for other people instead of focussing on your own portfolio and if I can give you any advice, just start doing your own work, build your portfolio up and you'll learn so much and keep your originality by doing exactly what you want to do and not compromising or being used.
Sorry if this wasn't the answer you were hoping for but I hope it helps somehow anyway :)
Take care love and good luck in your work!
Ronan is such an insperation and a breath of fresh in a dog eat dog world. I have shared this as I want it to inspire people like it has inspired me to do your own work and focous on your own porfolio and try and not be used!
