#THISISSUMMER: The Stylish Tourist (spon)

Hola from a very sunny and beautiful Menorca!

I recently got talking to the guys over at Pull & Bear about my summer campaign #THISISSUMMER, and they asked me if they could become part of the campaign in a summery shoot. The beautiful city down the road from our villa just fit the shoot perfectly, and it allowed me to become a total tourist and snap a few pics of the buildings etc, too!

I styled up the outfit with a few additions to give it that tourist edge, there’s so much to see and loads of little side streets to mooch down in the city so I made sure to take full advantage!

Pull & Bear hit me up with a few items to pick from, but for this outfit, as we were also going for a meal out, I wanted to pick something that would work both out and about sightseeing and also be fitting for a nice meal on the marina.

I am a pretty big fan of the ripped jean look, so I opted for some ripped denim shorts from Pull & Bear, as you’ll probably gather from past blog posts, I am a fan of black especially when it comes to jeans or shorts, so these are pretty perfect for me. They came with a drawstring through them but I wasn't much of a fan of how they looked with it so I snipped it out. You can pick these up in grey (which I will probably pick up, too!) and they’re a complete bargain right now for £12.99! I personally am super impressed with the quality of the denim, it’s even comfortable in the heat. You can pick these up here.

Now, I don’t usually wear much colour at all, monochrome is definitely what I tend to opt for…however the guys at Pull & Bear sent me a pink tee and actually I don’t think it looks too bad! It’s got a dipped hem at the back and is a great comfortable tee, it isn't too slim fit so it won't be getting all up on your body when you’re warm! Also, I was pretty impressed at how lightweight it is, there’s nothing worse than getting all sweaty in a thick, slim fit tee! You can pick up this tee in Rose Pink or Sky Blue, great for those pastel trends. It’s a pretty reasonable £7.99 and can be picked up here.

I teamed up the outfit with my Moonrock Yeezy Boost 350s as I wanted my feet to feel comfortable walking around the city. I also wore my Apple Watch, which I am rarely found without, a beige suede snapback which really compliments the tee, my mirrored Ray-Ban Clubmasters and my leather backpack which is just the right size to carry my life in!

Chilly Kneecaps

So if you can’t tell by my bright red nose…winter has officially arrived. Snow is drifting its way across the country and temperatures are hitting the minuses…so what better time to go an photograph some jeans with the knees ripped out…

I bang on in every blog post about Topman’s spray-on skinny jeans because A) they are my favourites and B) I am hoping for some free pairs (JOKE, before anyone gets shitty with me…) - spray ons are my go-to, I think I look really weird in jeans that are baggy, I look like I'm trying to be a cool 90’s dude but clearly failed. 

On browsing in my local Topman I came across a section of ripped knee spray-ons and I literally had no idea which ones to buy. I went for the black ones because I like black things to match my soul…plus they pretty much go with everything I wear in my winter wardrobe. They had some different blue shades in the same style which I did contemplate but I just didn't feel brave enough to move away from my staple black jeans. 

Upon buying, I dropped a little Tweet to express my excitement…Topman swiftly replied insinuating these are definitely not for the current weather…clearly I was feeling brave (not drunk) and headed out to get some cool snaps in the chilly weather…the snow had literally just melted and I instantly regretted every choice I had made up to that point….a model’s life, eh! 😏

These are pretty much my new favourite jeans, I teamed them with a Pull & Bear denim shirt my winter coat from River Island and my Dune chelsea boots which I definitely need more of because even I’m starting to get bored of seeing them in every blog post I do 😬

These jeans are available right over here for £38...I paid £40 in store and now feel I've been robbed £2...
