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. See, I told you my wardrobe was having a colour wash out! Not saying all my outfits will be so black and grey but I’m definitely gonna be inserting some more muted tones into my outfits from now on. Moving on to today’s outfit. I really love this dishevelled grey tank, the material is so soft too. It creates great layers within the outfit, with the fluffy jacket over the top for even more textures and lengths. I always find I look just a little bit cooler in my ripped jeans, I do need to get a proper pair, and not just my poorly done DIY ones, but for now they kinda work and of course my Docs are back :) Yay! My A/W footwear staple! :)
Hey lovelies, another outfit featuring some beaut H&M finds. Not sale finds, just my Mum and I walking around liking everything! Whoops! This dress is such a great A/W staple, because it has that really cool uneven cut. To wear with or without tights it can be styled up for whether is chilling or really cold! It has such a grunge vibe to it with its grainy washed out grey colouring. It has a thin ribbon tie at the waist to add some shape, but it also looks nice without it. Black + grey I find always go so well with gold accessories. I love this necklace from Topshop, I got it quite a while ago now but it’s just one of those pieces you need to be careful what you style it with as its such a statement. For when its a little colder this will look heat with a chunky black jumper or even a bright blue jumper but for now I paired it with my sleeveless faux leather Jacket from Forever 21. My old favourites make an appearance again, my New Look heeled boots, I really need to get a few other heeled boots to add to my collection, they do really go with everything.
Are you guys liking me posting outfits everyday? Don’t know whether it’s too much? I like it but thought I would ask you guys, so let me know in the comments below!
Hey Lovelies, I was recently emailed by Lalage from FuguPR about the amazing A/W collections from Dr Martens, I love my Dr Martens, I wore then in until I could barley walk! Up I was that determined to have those iconic boots on my feet! Epic shin pain!!! I also have the largest Dr Martens store in Norwich right near me! How cool is that! I always like to pop into the Norwich store to have a look at my future White Dr Martens Boots, I will one day own a pair :) to go with my Patent Black ones that I wear quite a bit, especially in the colder months. What’s really oil is that they also do clothing, be it a little on the pricey side for my pocket. But still really fab clothes. If ever I win the lottery I will purchase a few pieces, but for now I can only stare. So join me in having a nosey at some of their A/W collections.
Within the email I received there were 2 Look books which are virtual and really cool! Check out my Instagram for some video snippets. And a video of the collection which can be found >here<. #STANDFORSOMETHING
Lots of dark hues and tartan esq. pieces. I really like the tattoo print dress from the women’s collection and the tartan panel shirt from the mens. Gotta love the edgy vibes that I always think of when seeing anything Dr Martens.
*FUN FACT, 2 of the women in the collection video are from Norwich! Oo yeah! Norwich represent!!!

And…. if like me you live in/near Norwich you can always go along to the Dr Martens Store and pick up/order some of these beaut pieces, at 23-25 Castle Street, NR21PN :)
THE SUN IS HERE! Time to dive into the back of your wardrobe, or in my case to the shops and online to update your summer wardrobe! So seeing that the sunshine is finally here I thought I’d put together some summer looks based on the ever so cool sibling duo WILD BELLE. I have picked out some of my fave pieces from LoveClothing.com which can be injected into the styles of both Natalie + Elliot! I have to say, I found some really lovely pieces to spruce up any summer/festival wardrobe.
Perhaps I should give you the low down on WILD BELLE in case you aren’t familiar with them. They are a brother and sister from Chicago, who branched out from a previous band to create WILD BELLE. Their music is very summery + soulful. Their debut album Isles was released last year and I have had it on repeat ever since, it was an impulse purchase last year. It was one of those moments when you hear only one song and just end up buying the album. Their most recognisable track is ‘Keep You’ which can be found »here« . They both have a very laid back style which to me screams über coolness and a style that can be taken to any festival or holiday destination over the summer.
I adore Natalie’s style, always mixing and clashing patterns. Stand out pieces are a must. Look out for bright crops and patterned tee’s, and don’t be afraid to clash things up. Something that I am trying to do more of lately. The Juicy Fruit Crop would look fab against some electric blue culottes, just keep your accessories simple if you are worried it will look too much!
Floaty is a perfect partner for summer, sometimes you just want to float around all whimsical with flowers in your hair. The white Mink Pink playsuit is perfect for just that, layer with boho inspired jewellery like the long dream catcher necklace. For those chilly evenings throw on a cool Camo jacket for an added hit of grunge to your boho playsuit. No matter what your style you can always make an item work for you. It’s all about what you pair it with!
Elliot’s style is sometimes a face turner, he’s been seen in some rather snazzy shirts before. When it comes to statement shirts, I personally like the look of keeping the bottom half of the outfit simple. A black pair of jeans will do the trick, turning up the ends will add some edge to the look. When wearing all over patterned shirts go for muted colours to give off that indie cool vibe like Elliot. Purples and blues create tonnes of rich texture to merit that double take! I know that throwing on some trainers might be the easiest shoe option but think like Elliot! Go for smart shoes, I found such a vast selection of boots and shoes that it was really hard to narrow it down to just a few. My favourite has to be the Paolo Vandini Pavel Cuban buckle boots, talk about ‘smooth’. Just look at them, if they made a women’s version I would totally buy those bad boys!! haha!
For us girls think floaty and free, for the guys go smart! WILD BELLE really are a fab duo both musically + in style! They compliment each other so well. I had a blast searching for pieces on LoveClothing.com, again proving that no matter what shop you can find something that suits your style. Don’t get pigeon holed into one shop thinking they are the only ones that make your style clothing. Have a look around and you can find some extra key pieces, I am so tempted with that Kitten tee crop! So cute!

I’m sad to say that this is the last in my Slogan Tee style series! Short but sweet eh! This outfit encompasses my style completely, I’m very much a girl who wears things that shouldn’t really go together but somehow they totally do!
These polka dot trousers from River Island are a dream to wear! So comfy, and make my butt look fab! Haha! If I had loads of money I’d buy all of the different patterns available in this cut. Being high-waisted its perfect for creating cool looks with oversized tees like my #celfie one! It even comes with a simple black with gold buckle belt which I have been using for lots of other outfits too! They are £32 but if you wait a little while you can find them for £20 scattered amongst your River Island stores! I’m on the look out for the snazzy 80’s grey print ones! Too cute!
The weather is slowly but surly getting better so that means no more heavy coats, this faux leather gillet is the perfect cover up, its super thin so if you wanted to layer it with a thin jacket over the top it doesn’t make you look like the Michelin Man!
I threw on my Docs just because they are my go to boot when I can’t think of what to wear. And I must admit I’m struggling to find the prefect shoe match for these trousers! Trial and error it is for now!
Sometimes a nice way to make you look different is with a simple braid, this side braid is edgy yet still girly.
I really hope you have all like my How to Style series. I adore my #celfie tee it really is versatile, exactly what you want in a tee! And for the price, £10 gosh Bank you’ve done it again!
Like always you can find all this link to my other social media sites either in the sidebar or below, my Bloglovin’ is feeling a little unloved so if you don’t already follow me it would be so lovely if you could pop over there and click follow! :)

#CELFIE Oversized tee, BANKfashion | Embellished Leather Jacket, Topshop | Demin Shorts, Republic | Pink Choker, Miss Selfridge | Pool Sliders, Topshop | Quilted Bag, ASOS
My favourite of the 3 different ways I have styled up this fab slogan tee from BANKfashion! It just screams FESTIVAL!!! I think a slogan tee and a leather jacket are a match made in heaven, this embellished cross leather jacket is at the very top of my best buys ever as… you guessed it I got it in the sale!! I’ve had it a few years now and it fits perfectly, and goes with pretty much anything.
I must apologise for my pale legs, by the time I did these photos my gorgeous Cocoa Brown Tan is no longer visible! This outfit would look fab with bronzed legs unlike my pasty ones! Haha! I’ve had these denim shorts for ages, but always claimed them to be too short! But having seen some recent snaps of denim shorts with sliders I thought ‘I have the perfect pair’! I love the cross and zip details, makes them stand out a little bit more.
Now, these pool sliders. Wow, I tried them on, on a recent visit to Topshop and they were so comfy. I featured them in a recent WISHLIST post and I actually ended up buying them. Best buy for the summer by far, I went back into my Topshop the other day and walked past the shoe section and thought I’d show my friend them, but there were none left! They were a popular choice or it’s just that my Topshop doesn’t stock lots! I’m gonna go with that second statement! hehe!
Like any girl, I do love the look of a choker necklace, just adding a little grunge to your outfit, but I found this beautiful pink flower one in Miss Selfridge for only £5! They also do it in white for a truly 90’s vibe!
By keeping the oversized #celfie tee untucked creates a casual care free look, which is perfect for this festively outfit.
If you haven’t seen my 1st outfit you can find it »here«.
I hope you have liked this 2nd look, be back tomorrow for the final look! I’d love to know what you guys think so far?! And also whether you’d like to see more of these type of posts, would you prefer them to be all in one post? Or do you like them as a series?!
