SPRING SUNDAE

Happy Easter weekend everyone! I just wanted to share some of my recent work with you… Matt and I recently shot the beautiful Evelina from Established Models. I styled her in The Whitepepper, Quay Australia, JuJu Jellies and Lot78 using a palette of white, grey, pink and blue for a real "spring feel"; I hope you like it! By the way I post all of my work on my tumblr, so feel free to follow me if you're interested! http://tonicarolineogle.tumblr.com

SILVER

Check out these beautiful silver brogues by Red or Dead! I'm never really sure how to wear metallics but I rather like the simplicity of these paired with an otherwise quite boring and ordinary outfit. Here I also wore a sparkly jumper to compliment my new shoes and spread sparkles throughout the entire look! How do you like to wear your metallics?

Is anyone else desperate for the long weekend to begin!? 4 day weekend, woohoo! :)

PIGTAILS & BOWS










Last Sunday I spent the morning relaxing and catching up on emails before heading out in the afternoon to help with a friend's lookbook shoot. I wore one of my favourite dresses from Asos, with a collar, a cardigan, and these adorable new bow brogues from Olive and Frank. (You can get them in burgundy too!)

Oh by the way I need a little hair help - I can't decide whether or not to cut my fringe back in… (if you haven't noticed already this is an endless debate I have with myself)… what do you think? Fringe or no fringe?

SPARKLES IN SPRING

I was kindly send this delightfully sparkly dress from Lashes of London a while ago, but I've only just gotten around to photographing it. To be honest, I found it a little tricky to style. My usual look is a lot less dressy so I really struggled to pull an outfit together whilst still looking like "me". Last weekend however I had a sudden brain wave and found myself really wanting to wear it…. double sparkles! Here I've worn it with my "signature" collar poking out from underneath and a pair of glittery shoes!

A GIRLY EVENING OUT

A few weeks ago Next held an all day event to show off their latest summer collection. I met Harriet after work and we headed over to the rather lovely Soho hotel, where we were greeted with smiles, cake, sandwiches, bubbly and an exclusive, close-up look at their new range! Some of my favourite bits were the more sporty inspired pieces like below - I think Next do sporty very well actually, and I always enjoy their events!

I also had my hair done and had a larger wave put in… my hair definitely looks better either dead-straight or loosely curled, it looks awful in-between, which unfortunately is how it naturally falls! I'm finding it rather annoying now that it's longer - I never even considered that "frizz" could be a problem…. now my hair is frizzy as soon as I step out of my front door! Does anyone know of any good products to handle this?




After our time with Next, we moved on to Marc Cain's press event, which was being held in their offices down Great Portland street. I'd never actually heard of the brand before Jaclyn told me about them and their UK launch, but at the event they had the most amazing collection of coats! Their shoes were also beautiful; make sure you check out their site here.  


We were treated to very extravagant cocktails, delicious canap├ęs, and we got to try on their latest collection - I did try on an oversized, navy coat that I fell in love with! Not wanting to end the fun there however, Harriet and I then headed over to Bryon for a burger as Harriet had a free food voucher. I literally couldn't move by the end of the evening… I'd maybe had a little too much fun/food for one night! ;)
