Saw this photo on Lucy Williams', of Fashion Me Now fame, post about New York and it just grabbed me straight away.

At the moment I'm in full dissertation mode so life is quite monotonous and I know this must be the case for a lot of people out there. 

But I've got a few exciting things happening alongside that and it's starting to get sunnier and so, to all of you stressing out there, stuck inside four library walls,

Don't worry. Everything is going to be amazing.

Sometimes (actually, in my opinion, nearly all the time) the best editorials are the ones that don't mess around with props, lighting, make-up etc.

All you need is a beautiful girl and some effortlessly chic clothing, preferably in shades of black and white and you are good to go.

I'm not going to lie I'm quite partial to a weekend fashion mag. 

There's nothing I like more than flicking through the latest columns and snaps from the week that was over a cup of tea and big fat fry-up.

And this Sunday Telegraph shoot is just the bomb.

That last shot...beautiful.

Now where can I get me a soft stripy blue shirt??

Lee Alexander McQueen. A name that everybody's heard but a person and designer that I knew nothing about.

Until Saturday that was when I attended the opening day of the absolutely breathtakingly incredible Savage Beauty exhibition currently showing at the V&A Museum in London.

Curated by Claire Wilcox and brought over from New York, the exhibition was the most amazing one I'd ever seen.

Every room was dedicated to a different iconic collection with the decor and layout of each space reflecting the nature of the clothing. It was mind-blowing and made me realise what an absolute creative genius McQueen really was. It was phenomenal that every collection in those five odd rooms had been thought up by the same mind. If only I could have a portion of that imagination!

The exhibition is running from 14th March - 2nd August and I couldn't recommend it more strongly. 

No photos were allowed but the above picture is one of my favourite portraits taken of him and I can't really explain why. Maybe it's the cigarette in the skull's mouth? Or the wistful, nonchalant look in his eye.

McQueen changed the face of fashion for good and this exhibition is the powerful representation of a life worth recording.

The new Valentino Spring Summer campaign is just amazing.

The dream holiday, the dream dresses, the dream sandals.

Just ever so dreamy really.

As you can tell I've been in the library all day so my brain is feeling just a little fried but you can always count on Bloglovin' to sort you right out.

This hairstyle is one that I rock almost daily, the only solution to a bad hair day/windy day/can-I-really-leave-the-house-with-my-hair-like-this kinda day.

And all of a sudden it is having a 'moment,' models on shoots and fashion-y people are looking oh so effortlessly undone.

Whether your hair is long or short or straight or curly, this is every girl's solution.

So next time I scrunch up half my hair in a top knot in the library computer room I will remember that this is what all the cool kids are doing.
