October! I remember when I wrote 7 Things For July how amazed I was that 2016 was already in its seventh month. Well now it’s in its tenth and I am even more amazed. This year is really flying by! October means Autumn, my favourite season. I miss the warmth of summer but I love the colour of nature and the cool, crisp air. This is my month for changing things up and adding some spice to my life and routine. So without any further ado here are my hopes and plans for October!
Earlier this week I had the chance to have a look at and (most importantly) try on items from the brand new NikeLab x Olivier Rousteing: Football Nouveau collection. It’s dropping next week on the second of June and I was very excited to have a preview before it went on sale. The NikeLab store in Shoreditch welcomed me in with open arms (quite literary, the members of staff there are lovely – more on that later). I was able to try items from the men’s and women’s collection, pre-order if I wanted to, and my thoughts on the pieces I tried are below.
My love of print is drooling after every single item in the Oasis and V&A collaboration. I thought the first collection was amazing but the second one is even better. When I saw this shirtdress online I had to go and try it before spending the money (it could have looked horrendous in person) so at lunch i made my way to an Oasis store and found it in my size.
There are times when I am very careful with what I choose to spend my money on, especially when it comes to fitness apparel since it can be so easy to bleed money. However recently I have bought a few key pieces for my fitness wardrobe and all of them were on sale so the bleeding hasn’t been too profuse.
I am really, really looking forward to wearing all of these.
