3.Notting Hill


Hello Everyone! Just wanted to quickly say thankyou so much for all the lovely comments on my previous posts, I was really nervous about starting this blog so to have people say such lovely things is genuinely really appreciated!

Anyway, Livvi and I took a trip earlier this week to Notting Hill to shoot her so I thought I'd jump in on the action and get a few myself. Although we live the other side of London, Notting Hill is probably our go to location for shooting, as there are so many incredibly picturesque little streets that our nice and quite (a BIG plus if you're still getting to grips with a camera in your face!), and it's somewhere that we always manage to find somewhere new and unique each time we go.

This look is quite probably my default outfit, as anyone who knows me will certainly testify to! I'm a huge fan of a long winter coat, as being 6"4 with very long legs means that shorter coats have a tendency to make me look like i'm on stilts. Although I've only had this Reiss coat for a couple of months, it has quickly become one of my most worn and loved garments in my wardrobe, and I love how well it goes with my black cheap monday jeans and endless supply of grey tees. Although it was an expensive purchase (thank you student loans), I really don't mind spending a lot on one or two staple items, as a coat like this is not only practical, but also versitile in terms of what you can wear with it, so I know I'm going to get years out of use from it.


Another pretty sweet advantage of shooting in west London is the quite frankly endless supply of amazing old cars, and anyone who follows my instagram account will know just how much I milk it! Livvi and I have been thinking how amazing hiring one out for a weekend in the summer would be (there's an amazing place not far from where we live in Dulwich that have a few available to hire which are amazing!), but as neither of us drive it has always been more of a hopeful dream a realistic ambition. Thankfully though, Liv has started learning so it may not be as far away as first feared, so we may well be partaking in a trip sooner than expected!

Thankyou all for reading, and make sure to subscribe to my bloglovin account linked at the bottom (sorry for the really poor writing skills, I'm going to try to improve!)

Have a lovely evening!




  1. I always love all the old cars in your instagram and as I live in Brighton there are quite a few here too so I always keep my eye open for them.

  2. Beautiful pictures, as Liv's always are. You two make a perfect blogging couple! And stop apologising, Joe, your blog is lovely :)

  3. Love the car! My student loan has pretty much exclusively been blown on boots and coats.

  4. Really nice outfit. The coat is amazing, and so is this van. I love those vintage cars.

  5. I love your outfits! Unfortunately there are not a lot of men with the same fashion style as you here in Prague... So it is nice to see something fresh and stylish:) love the coat and the beanie!:) Also, London and England in general is my fave place to be, so I highly appreciate your picture´s location :)


  6. Cool place around there but it's nuts and annoying on Weekends. Olivia spotted a car on my IG feed yesterday, there's a few cool cars around the Bloomsbury Sq area.
