Hey Lovelies, I’m backkk!!! To gently get back into blogging after being away in the beautiful Tenerife (gathering all my photos for a post that will be on here soon) :) I thought I would indulge in a little wish list/style up post, there are quite a few picks today! I thought it would be wrong to let this dark and spooky time of year slip on by! HALLOWEEN! I haven’t got plans this year, like most years I’ll probably be in, wrapped up on the sofa watching a non scary film (I’m a scaredy cat) in my giraffe onesie. But that doesn’t mean I can’t drool over the gorgeous Halloween inspired pieces that are all about at the moment. Which by the way can easily be styled for Christmas/AW too :) Win win!
ASOS Little Mistress Navy Sweetheart Dress
I love the sweetheart neckline on this dress, also the navy colour is not something you would usually see on Halloween. Pair with some black accessories for a modern take on the Halloween night out outfit.
ASOS Pointed Bow Heels
Bows. Is there really much else to say about these shoes. Okay, so yes there is a bit more to say, how freaking cute are these. Taking a classic shoe and adding a simple black bow at the ankle! Genius!
ASOS Green Beaded Clutch
I really like this emerald-green beaded clutch, pair this with a simple all black outfit as a stand out piece.
TOPSHOP Sequin Panel Pleated Dress
Now, this Topshop dress has been on my wish list for ages, well, the wish list in my head that is! It’s stunning I love the different textures and lengths, this could be a possibility for a work Xmas meal outfit at this rate! I LOVE IT!
ASOS Halloween Embellished Choker Necklace
Talk about gothic chic. This is an extremely beautiful and intricate piece of jewellery, reminds me of the costumes in Underworld! Sophia Myles wore some stunning pieces.
TOPSHOP Webbed Tights
Something a little fun! I am always on the look out for quirky tights to wear to work to snazzy up the uniform, these web tights are perfect for Halloween!
TOPSHOP Red Plunge Jumpsuit
I don’t usually gravitate towards red, but this jumpsuit is so elegant and definitely means business, I’d layer this with a mess top underneath and some black high heels for a vampy evening look.
ASOS Halloween Gothic Rose and Lace Headband
This headband is AMAZING! Gothic vibes all around. This really is a ‘wish’ piece as I wouldn’t know where to start with styling it on myself! Definitely something to look into in the future.
TOPSHOP Halloween Scrunchie
Another fun item from Topshop, I love scrunchies and this Halloween themed one is too cute. Especially when you have to wear your hair up for work this is a nice and simple way to incorporate some of the Halloween spirit into your everyday look.
NEW LOOK Mesh Baroque Tee
This tee is fab for layering, using under a dress or jumpsuit or over a bright crop will revamp any piece of clothing in your wardrobe with a gothic twist.
NEW LOOK Black Lace Sleeve Crop
I LOVE this black lace sleeved crop, I can easily see Wednesday Addams wearing this. This would go really nice with a burgundy miniskirt and Docs.
NEW LOOK Pure Colour Burgundy Lipstick
I can’t wait to go into my local New Look and pick up some of their new beauty range. This deep burgundy red is perfect for A/W and for creating sultry vampy make up to complement a gothic look. It would also look great with very natural make up for a stamens pop of colour.
NEW LOOK Black Faux Fur Trim Heels
These fluffy heels are everywhere, I know lots of other places do them, but New Look are my fave high street store for shoes! They are adorable, with fluff adds a cuteness to them and ultra girly vibes. With pay-day looming they might be making a new home for themselves with me very soon.
I hope you like my Halloween inspired picks, if you like them they are all linked above :) Feels good to be blogging again, I am currently settling back into things. I know I was only gone for round about 2 weeks, but you can’t rush things when coming back otherwise it would feel like a waste of a really lovely holiday and time away. And I am in no rush to let go of the holiday vibes! :)
Hey Lovelies, It’s officially the start of my holidays! Yay! This week has been a long one, and very busy! With the colder weather it means people want coffee… and lots of it! Hello ridiculous never-ending queues! But I’m putting that behind me as I’ve got packing and outfit organising to do this weekend! Today’s look however is sticking to the weather we have right now! Up and down and chilly. I have been wearing my faux fur collar from Topshop with nearly everything lately, it adds some really fun textures to an outfit and it’s just so comfy and soft. I am a lover of all black outfits, but I thought I’d throw on my cute pastel purple fluffy crop to add a softness to the look. I recently found this clutch that I found in TKMaxx, it truly was an amazing find, a knuckle duster on as the handle?! If that’s what it’s called. The skeleton is rocking a crown and it’s just all sorts of cool. My black skin-tight Joni jeans are my go to trousers at the moment, they are super high-waisted and I just bloomin’ love them! I found these heels from New Look hidden in my shoe chest, I have nice memories of these shoes as I wore them to my graduation! How very brave of me, as they are, now anyway really high! haha! I’m not used to wearing heels at all!
Hey Lovelies! As I mentioned in my last post, I was able to have a style session at the Topshop Norwich Student Event! Being able to walk around the store and with the help of the beaut personal stylist Martha pick out some really fab outfits. Some are very in my comfort zone and some are a little out of the box. Which I LOVE, as fashion is about expression and it’s always great to play around with different styles and trends. I hope you like the different outfits that Martha put together for me! Let me know in the comments which is your favourite :) (I have also linked all the items at the end, just in case you like it so much you wanna buy it! :)).
Look 2: Sports Luxe with a twist
Look 3: Evening Elegance
Look 4: Jumpsuit, Floppy Hat and Tote= Perfection
Look 5: A Kimono tells a thousand stories
I have to say that outfit 4 is my absolute favourite. That In Love With Fashion jumpsuit is so out there and stunning. I didn’t think I could pull it off but I felt amazing in it. Also as I mentioned in my last post, I was kindly about to make use of the 20% discount that all the lucky students were snapping up! I ended up getting the gorgeous patent sling back loafers from look 3! Like I don’t already own about a dozen black shoes/boots, oh well! One more to add to my collection. And with the discount I felt so lucky as for me Topshop shoes are a treat purchase.
Thanks again to Kaiah for inviting me to the event I had such a great time. And thanks again to Martha for styling me in some really amazing outfits, you have added lots of pieces to my ongoing wish list. If you live in Norwich and fancy some style advise, just pop into Topshop and ask to arrange a personal style session, be it you are in need of a wardrobe update, an outfit for a special occasion or just want to find some new threads, they are there to help! :) I couldn’t recommend it more I had a great time.

Hey Lovelies, if my wardrobe could resemble my wish list posts I would be one very happy Jenny! But for now they only exist in my pretty collage. I am very slowly trying to transform my wardrobe into something more monochrome with some pastel hints. So far, it hasn’t really happened. I am in need of a wardrobe makeover, as whenever I look in it, I don’t see the clothes of a 24/25 year old. Yes, I do love all my clothes, but that doesn’t mean that some changes need to me made!
Right, ramble over! Here are a very cute selection of things I am loving at the moment. My fave thing has got to be the Missguided Croc Boots. Perfect autumn boots with a gorgeous croc style finish. Just adds something a little extra to the cut out boot. Another fave is the layered jumper from River Island, with the weather still joking around, layering will become everyone’s best friend. And for someone like me who has no figure at all, layering can just add frumpiness to a look, but this faux layered jumper is perfect. All the warmth just not too much bulk :)

Hey Lovelies, because the weather has been so up and down lately I haven’t been able to get any outfits shot! :( So that means I’ve been sat inside on my computer browsing my fave shops. What I did realise while I was having a good old browse was my colour choices. Lots of black and lots of blue. Oh dear, summer isn’t really over (though the weather may say something different) but I have found myself looking forward to the Autumn already. Cue duster coats and muted tones. I think if I have to get just one staple autumn piece it would be a duster coat. They just look so comfy and classic. The two I have picked from New Look are a really great purse friendly price, the pale blue is adorable and I love the addition of the oversized pockets. I seem to have discovered an obsession with anything quilted. The Topshop quilted trainers style boots are just so perfect. Although quite pricey they are still dreamy to look at and would be great for the colder months. I really favour trousers that are high wasted, and these simple black cigarette trousers are perfect, and a really great price too. I’ve only just started to dabble in purchasing from Missguided and wow! I’ve got the ‘I WANT TO BUY EVERYTHING’ bug!
For the part of me that is still in summer mode I have found 2 veer opposite end of the price range heeled sandals, one from New Look which is in the sale for only £7, chunky black sandals with a contrast wooden heel, will go with pretty much anything. And at the other end of the scale, some monster blue floral heels from River Island, they are just so perfect.
Lets wish for more sun for just a little longer, but for now I am most definitely trying to style in a more transitional way. As today, in Norwich anyway it was super sunny one minute and then it tipped it down with rain! Thanks British weather for being so random at times.

5. Blue + Black Strappy Contrast Bikini Top, RIVER ISLAND £16
6. Ribbon Pineapple Print Bikini Top, BANK £12
Hey Lovelies! Seriously take me away to a beach right freakin now! For me its all about the bikini tops! I have some really nice high-waisted bikini bottoms in white and black ( you know as the tan progresses you change-up the bikini colour) that are in need of a colourful top half! I’ve picked out 6 of my faves that are super cut and hit quite a few different styles. My favourite is the petrol blue tassel bikini top from New Look, I’ve always loved the look of tassels, be it on a bag or a kimono, so why not on a bikini top. I also love the pineapple print from BANK, gotta love some pineapples!
Have you got any fave bikini’s that you may just have to purchase for the summer/ when it’s actually sunny!?
