How To Style: Nike Roshe Run Palm Print

Hi Guys, I hope you are having a lovely Easter weekend. I thought I would do a "How to style themed post" to give you inspiration on how to style  Nike Roshe Run Palm Print sneakers 4 ways. 

These trainers are inspired by the practice of meditation and the concept of Zen and epitomises simplicity with black palm trees printed on a white back drop; giving a tranquil zen garden feel.

The Roshe Run is a lightweight runner constructed of a breathable mesh and a super soft midsole.  The trainers definitely represent warm weather in a graphical, wearable, fun & playful way. 

 As you can tell in previous posts here, here & here, I have incorporated the fly palm tree sneakers in numerous of my casual outfits. 

The trainers have become increasingly popular and as it stands are no longer available online at Office or NIKE.com. So perhaps looking in your nearest local Office, Nike, Size and OffSpring store, you might just find there; otherwise another retailer or reputable Ebay seller.

Mono @ Rtister Meet The Designer Event: A-Line





Shirt: H&M Trend
Hollywood Sandals: ASOS
Pearl Choker: Zara

Last week I attended Rtister, Chelsea AW14 Press Day presenting A Line. I thought this will be the perfect day to showcase these Japrint trousers by Les 100 Ciels. I'm totally loving the polka dots and that it is 100% silk satin. They are the perfect ensemble to any outfit; whether you wish to dress them up or down, the possibilities are endless.

I opted to wear the Japrint trousers with a stripe shirt; for an even more daring look. I thought why not mix prints for a chic evening affair and pair with sandals, clutch and pearl choker. When in doubt, monochrome is the way to go!! 

The Rtister AW14 Press day - A Line, Meet The designer event went down a treat, the store was packed to the 9s, had a nice serene atmosphere and buzzing with fashion alike individuals. Electro swing music filled the store by DJ Annie O & her fro was super fly. Canap├ęs and Champagne was also flowing all night long. Sweet





Anne Sophie Kohler the creative director of A-Line impressed wearing one of her favourite looks from her SS14 line, which consisted of a white jacket with a yellow leather trim and matching skirt. Definitely a look that can take you from day to night in no time.

I really loved Anne Sophie's line, especially all the impeccable  detailing. From the tailored pieces to the Organza sleeves and plenty of textures. It was fresh, feminine, innovative, mimialism with an urban twist. Very sleek and contemporary. The colour palette was muted pinks, whites, yellows,grey black and navy. A-line delivers collections comprised of everyday wear essentials- comfortable, yet creative style for the carefree city dweller. To discover more visit A-line London.

On Friday I headed to Notting Hill for a wander, I love passing by Portobello Road to view the pastel candy like houses, how adorable are they?!? and shopping along the market stalls; You can find absolutely anything amongst these streets; vintage trinkets,  food spots, jewellery &  hat stalls. 

Today I opted to wear this chunky cap sleeve knit by Les Ciels* A great transitional piece. The depth of the knit makes it great for the cooler spring periods.

The weather was not as hot but not cold, I thought it will be perfect teamed with distressed denim jeans; particularly this white pair to make it an ultimate statement piece. Lastly I wore my trainers of the moment.
