Hey Lovelies, quite a fun causal look today. I am obsessed with layering at the moment, and this white shirt bright top combo is a must have look! I’m not really one thats goes for lots of colour but this outfit is pretty pop tastic! I think the trousers from New Look made this outfit go from bland to amazing! And… they go perfectly with my Nike Trainers. I got these a few years ago from Office, and I must admit that I don’t wear them that often, I really should! They are really comfy.
What do you think of this outfit? I hope you like it! It would be lovely if you could leave a lil comment if you do, will be something nice to see when I come back from my holiday! Which will be tomorrow! (Which is weird to say as I’m writing this I haven’t even left!)
Hey Lovelies, it’s my birthday today!! Yay!! 25! O-M-G!!! I’ve picked out a rather special outfit for today (look out on my Instagram for a sneaky look) but that won’t be on here till after I’m back from my holiday! Today is all about this blue retro mini shirt from New Look. It is so freakin’ cute! I layered this look with all black, a simple tee and a long sleeveless cardigan that I synched at the waist with my buckle style belt from ASOS.
I have a new love for these adorable shoes from Schuh, they are so unique with the cut out triangles on the top, yet the style is really girly.
Hey Lovelies, today’s look is all about the shirt! Sometimes its just about throwing on a baggy shirt and some skinny jeans. This is the shirt that encompasses that. H&M are so on point at the moment, so I’ve been spending a lot of time and money in there to help revamp my wardrobe. A rare new purchase that isn’t black/ white or grey. I love that this shirt can be worn in different ways, I’m thinking that it will look great tied around my waist over a skirt for a laid back vibe. I didn’t want to layer up too many accessories/ jewellery so I went for a couple of rings and a chunky necklace which is from Miss Selfridge! Again my New Look boots make an appearance. I do really need to get another pair or heeled boots for some variety!
Anyway, hope you are all having a good week! We made it to Wednesday, which for some will mean watching Great British Bake Off!! Ooo the drama!!

Hey Lovelies, I have been searching for a duster coat for some time now, being on a budget all of the time I wanted to take my time and find something within my price range. Price range being not over £40, which I think is pretty reasonable for a good quality coat not saying I’ve never spent over that on a coat before. This gorgeous floaty blue duster is from H&M and was only £29.99, it is stunning, such a nice fabric too. Also something a little different to my pretty much all black coat/jacket collection. Seeing as Autumn is pretty much hear right now, layering is key, I layered this look with my black sleeveless cardigan over a simple white crop. These high-waisted trousers were a sale find from River Island a while ago now, they had lots of snazzy patterns in this style. This spotty one is quite retro and really cute.
To finish off the look some heels from Schuh, I have started to sort out my shoes from S/S to A/W, and I found these hidden in my shoe chest. (Yep and actual chest full of shoes).
I hope your week is going okay so far. It’s hump day after all! We are at the top of the hill, now its all quick going back down to the weekend :)

ITS FRIDAY!!!! ITS THE WEEKEND!!! Hey Lovelies, to say I have been looking forward to the weekend is an understatement. I haven’t got loads planned but this week at work has been insane! Anyway moving on to todays look. Gosh, I love these dogtooth cigarette trousers form Topshop. I saw them and knew we were meant to be, it was a short affair, but I think being together is for the best. Lol! But seriously, I love them. I’ve really got back into wearing trousers again, now that the weather is still playing up.
I love the texture to the pattern, its mini dogtooth to make big dogtooth. I thought the contrast between the structured trousers and the fluffy Primark top makes it a little more girly. And also, who doesn’t like being all fluffy.
I’m going to the launch of the new Urban Decay Pulp Fiction collection tomorrow, can’t wait to try it all out. And of course get my make up done with it. I won’t look like Uma but oh well! I will be either tweeting about it and I know I’ll be in Instagram, so if you fancy a look you know where to find me. Have a really lovely weekend, make some stories for Monday!!
Hey Lovelies, it’s finally the weekend, a 3 day weekend!!! Even better! Another fave combination at the moment, this beaut pink boxy top from Missguided and my trusty ankle grazing blue splodge trousers from H&M. I love how it’s girly with the pinks and floaty-ness of the top but toned down with the fitted trousers. How can I not mention my pink jelly shoes from New Look. They have been a summer staple for me. Adding some much-needed pink to many outfits. For some reason I think this outfit is slightly 90’s, but I have no idea why, maybe its my choice in hairstyle. Or I’m just imagining it! ha!
I can’t believe how long my hair is, true the fact that its half up half down does make it appear fuller, but still, it’s almost at bra strap level! So, yeah moving on from talking about my hair. I haven’t really got much planned for the weekend, will hopefully be getting next weeks outfits styled and shot, but if it keeps raining I may have to either rock an umbrella or do some flat outfits instead. I’ve just painted my nails too, so I will be getting some nail art stuff written up soon too. :)
I hope you like this outfit, I’d love to know your thoughts in the comments below. It’s cheesy, but it really is so great to hear what you guys think :)

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.
