So yes festival season is very much so coming to an end but I want to show you that this outfit is so much more than a festival outfit – it is so so versatile.
For me this is a perfect festival outfit with a twist – it is silky, a bright metallic blue, loose fitting and cool considering it is a shorts and short sleeve co-ord.
I love this outfit for any summer festival I wore mine to pride and Boundary festival which was only last wee
k (I know I was freezing). The only downside for me was it doesn’t come in extra small and I found the shorts were a little oversized – but I just rolled them up and it was fine.
This ‘summer’ 2 piece set gives you so much versatility for all seasons – You can wear them together, dress up / dress down, open shirt / buttoned up, mix and match the shirt and the shorts with other outfits to make a versatile outfit for all weathers. This is why it was well worth the £55 from Zara!
Here are a few ways I would utilise this luxury 2 piece for smart or casual occasions
(P.S. I love the idea of the yellow jumper tied with the 2 piece set the silky blue and the bright yellow work so well defo recommend).

Lemons may usually be thought of as bitter but, if you start incorporating lemon accents into your outfits this summer it will be anything but.
I am not one to follow trends however I am totally on this yellow/ lemon/ mustard hype. I am such a navy, white, black and grey type of guy so brightening up my wardrobe with this colour palette would have seemed daunting not so long ago. However i’ve seen so many people killing it lately with these bright colours. So, if you’re like me and want to switch up your wardrobe and fit in with the brighter season that is (hopefully) ahead of us then defo go and invest in something that is yellow whether it be a whole outfit or an accessory – I will leave some of my favs down below.
I’m in love with this Baywatch-T perfect for the summer, it is bright and refreshing, it adds a bit of cheeky to my classic wardrobe – I will definitely be taking this one on my travels.
Thanks for reading – head over to my instagram @kanehuxley1 where you will see how I style these items 🙂

Ok if you are ever in London and want a quick but chíc lunch you have to go to EatbyChloe in Covent Garden
It is a vegan fast food restaurant, the food was incredible and so were the vibes – especially the swing chairs. Very aesthetically pleasing
I loved everything we ordered, omg the ‘parmesan crust’ – Yum
I love you London and i’m definitely going to be back to ByChloe and try the meatball sub.
Thanks Sophie Bala for taking me to these fab places (and for the insta shots) xo
By the way this jumper was a bargain find in Bershka on sale. I love the way it fits and the whole style of it. A perfect spring hoodie for this time of year. All outfit details will be linked below….

I got this beauty from Zara. I had been wanting one for ages after I saw a blogger shooting it in Joe&Juice in London one day. Since I have searched everywhere for something similar and the closest I got was one in Dior which was extortionate.
I am in love with it for so many reasons:
1- It is sooo comfortable so it is a perfect airport outfit or for a long car journey
2- It isn’t like the ‘typical’ tracksuit you would in-vision It gives you comfort and style
3- It fits so well. Mine is a small which does fit well for me now but in the christmas period maybe a little bit on the small side – I blame the cheese board.
4- The CROPPED leg. I know I am about a year or two late to this trend but I don’t care i’m living for it
5- The matching navy and burgundy stripes on both the jacket and the bottoms. Which goes perfectly with my watch strap i’m currently wearing.
This tracksuit is more suitable for spring but I am finding it so hard to not wear it now in the colder months especially here in England (I do but I freeze).
It is perfect teamed with a plain white t-shirt like I have here, I usually tuck it in. In terms of shoes low top trainers are my favourite. My all time favourite shoes to wear with this are my Gucci ace sneakers when I bought them it was literally for an outfit like this. Although I do love wear my classic vans with this outfit too.
Thanks for reading,
(As you can tell it was pretty cold when I was shooting this jacket & I was standing on a frozen lake – So I hope you appreciate it)
This jacket is from River Island. I was really surprised on the quality of the jacket considering. It has really made me look into river island more which i’ve noticed have really upped their game especially adding lines like their limited edition range.
I have been wanting a Borg lined jacket for a while ever since I saw the dreamy Balenciaga shearling aviator. However this is a lot more affordable at £110 (IF YOU”RE A SIZE SMALL OR XXS IT IS ONLY £55 – I’m wearing a size small here). I love the cuffs on the sleeves wrapped in Borg which are slightly cropped which I like to show what jumper or short you’re wearing underneath. I prefer it unzipped with a scarf rather than zipped up but each to their own. For a high street alternative I think it is a great jacket that not only looks stylish also keeps your super warm.

I really would like my blog to be more personal and talk about issues or topics that are important. So I was thinking of adding this to the end of some of my blog posts when i’ve been thinking about something a lot at that time – although I don’t want it to be forced.
Lately I have been seeing a lot of posts on perfectionism and i’ve found a lot of them very relatable and has made me think. I have realised that when social media is criticised it is mostly in relation to body image creating unrealistic expectations for people. However I also think social media allows unrealistic expectations in terms of productivity. It has created a culture of obsession over the ‘perfect life.’ Again just like body image, people will mostly show an almost edited view of their life as only selected content is uploaded. i have found myself looking at peoples Insta stories and seeing them waking up at 5 am and hitting the gym , completing their uni work as well as creating lots of their content for their blog. |t appears as if they are ticking off their entire to do list which is possible every now and then but not everyday. This leaves me feeling deflated and unmotivated as I give myself unrealistic expectations that I can’t complete. I am beginning to understand that it is okay to have two days of not exercising or leaving a task until tomorrow.
Not everyone is on top of it all of the time. It is okay you can get it all done but just not all in one day. Anyway chances are you’re smashing life in your own way!
I hope you can think the same too if you are like me and overwhelm yourself with mountains of uncompleted to do lists.
Thank you for reading something a little more personal,
Considering it is coming up to the end of 2017 and I have been wanting these babies the entire year, I finally took the plunge.
I tried to get these at Bicester Village in the summer which of course weren’t there. So I had a little look on Selfridges and Harrods this week and they wasn’t there (the stress). Then I found them on Mr Porter (which I love by the way; their website, service and delivery). So of course in a panic I bought them. Many say impulse purchases are not a good idea but I say surely you must love the item a lot if nothing stops you from buying it.
These are the classic Gucci ace sneakers with the bee embroidery. I’m so bloody excited to wear them and I know they will be surgically attached to me in spring. So I hope you won’t get too bored of them because I won’t !
Treat yo self this christmas it has been a long year. Merry Christmas everyone,
