Floral Flares






It seems as though flares have recently become my go-to item to wear lately, whether that is dressed down with a simple band tee or dressed-up with something a little more 'glam' and sophisticated. With that being said these ones I bought a while back from the Asos "Reclaimed Vintage" range are the ones that make them the epitome of 'Relaxed Sunday dressing'. They are literally on the same level of comfy-ness as pyjamas.  With 'relaxed dressing' in mind, and as the sun/warmth was no where to be seen when these photos were taken, I decided to pop on my beloved faux leather jacket to add a strong contrast to the floral trousers.

A slightly different post today as I wanted to share with you a photography book my sister recently recommended I have a look at. That being said I subsequently fell in love with it and wanted to share it with you all, as my first (ever) book review on the blog. The book is by Keegan Allen ("Toby" from PLL) and shares a photographic insight into his life spanning back from when he was given his first camera (aged nine) to now as an actor on his own creative journey.

The one thing I love about the book is the vastness of subjects he photographs, ranging from candid photos of cast-members on film/tv sets to my (personal favourite) scenic shots of California and the array of 'characters' you might encounter on the streets of LA. As a photography enthusiast it has made me want to pick up my film camera again and just snap away at life as it passes, as a large majority of the photos are taken on his Leica M6-*dream* film camera...This book is definitely worth a read if you want a source of inspiration for picking up your camera again.

Now playing: Foals "What went down", Wolf Alice "Bros", The Strokes "Machu Picchu" Florence + the Machine "Queen of Peace" & The Red Hot Chilli Peppers "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie"

Caseapp

When it comes to iPhone cases I am one of those people who is constantly changing theirs-it is as though my iPhone has got a mini wardrobe to suit all seasons. So when CASEAPP contacted me to see whether I was interested in designing my very own custom iPhone case, I immediately began thinking about the type of design I wanted to create. 
I am sure you all know by now about that space grunge obsession of mine, as I keep going on about it... So with that in mind I began sourcing various 'space' related images that I could use for the case. As I have a weird obsession with collecting images of "Nebulas" on my phone (my phone is full of them) and have always wanted a phone case covered in its pastel, mystical colours, I decided to use it as my base image on the case. Which I then topped with an alien icon-for obvious reasons. 

CASEAPP is really cool site as you can create a range of different types of collages either using your own images (or ones you were inspired by) as well adding cute icons they have ready to use on the site, to your phone case. You can also can create custom skins for your PC laptops, Macs and iPads, which you could always match to your case ;) Plus they are made from extremely good quality plastic, as well as offering a "Extra Tough" range for those of us paranoid about dropping our phone (myself included).  

If you fancy treating yourself or someone you know to a thoughtful gift, the lovely people over at  CASEAPP are kindly offering all Style Peaches readers 20% off with the code PEACHESCASE20 (Valid until the July 17th).  So let me know if you design one!
