Not Autumn Appropriate

Top - ASOS//Shorts - American Apparel//Necklace and hand bracelet- Kukee//Lipstick - Soap & Glory - Replumzle

I am aware this is not winter appropriate. Nor is it something I would really wear nowadays. My style is starting to change a bit lately. Winter is my favourite season for layering, and part of that style I have to be comfortable and warm. To me anything high waisted at the moment isn't comfortable and isn't something I will be wearing in the next couple of months. Although I am not a very colourful person when it comes to my style, I do extremely enjoy mixing up my textures and patterns. 

One thing I do know is when summer starts to make an appearances and its actually warm in England, I will be pulling out theses shorts as they are the best high waisted shorts I have come across and the cut and comfort is like nothing I have experiences even with none jean shorts. It sucks you in, Flatters all figures, and looks stylish. For the price of £52, this is a little much but with the amount of times I have already worn them I'm getting my moneys worth.

Winter Lips - Get The Courage To Wear It

If you want to make an outfit pop, or add something extra try a bold lip. Not everyone likes bold lips, I for one love them! Theres no better way to complete an outfit or take it to the next level than to wear a striking bold lip. 

If you like the look of bold lips but don't feel like you could brave it out and wear it I have a couple of tips for you. 

First the neutral lip, you need to be comfortable with the concept of wearing lipstick. If you are, great move on, if not try and wear it as many places as you can, even at home, or just to the shop. Getting yourself comfortable with lipstick is going to help your confidence when wearing a bold lip, and to be able to pull off bold lips you need to feel confident in it.

Onces you are used to wearing lipstick just bite the bullet and buy a bold lip. Any sort of bold lipstick will do. Whether is one you've seen on blogs, one you've been eyeing up, or just one to try out. 
With the bold lip its about building. 
Start by dabbing the lipstick to your lips and smooth it out with your finger. You wont get much pigmentation with this but you will start to get comfortable with wearing it. 
Once you have worn this for a while take it up a notch and pack more colour onto your lips building up the look.
One way for doing this is putting the lipstick onto your lips and using some tissue paper and blot the colour. This will instantly take the colour down and become a more wearable, softer colour.

Now its time to brave it and just wear the colour in its full pigmentation. The best time to wear this would be on a night out. If I want to try something new out I normally tend to do it on a night out. This is because I feel in the daytime I have nowhere to hide from daylight. I feel like everyone is looking at me more and I tend not to want to try it again. When on a night you have the confidence boost to attempt it.

Bargin Buys - Zara Edition

I have been struggling for the perfect winter coat since September now. I know exactly what I want. A long coat that hits the right point, doesn't swallow me, and is warm. I have searched everywhere to try and find one that hits all of the above, but no luck.

Zara is one of my favourite places to window shop. Although most of the time I never find much I like, I know what good quality their items are, and how well they last. I was browsing Zara and came across a new section called Special Prices, here I found my coat! I have seen this coat about, and was going to purchase a similar one until someone said, 'A winter coat should be easy to wear with anything. This is a big commitment for a everyday.' So I decided against It but still longed for a checked coat.

This coat was originally £70, but I got it for £40! To me that is a huge bargain for such a nice, well made coat. Even knowing this would be a hard coat to wear on an everyday basis, at this price you cant complain. Plus if I see another coat that takes my eye I won't feel too guilty purchasing another.

Grab one while you can!

Style Envy

Top- Miss Guided//Jeans - American Appareal//Jacket- H&M

I see so many style  blogs and vlogs of outfits to die for, but would never actually have the confidence to try myself. Well I'm choosing september as my new start month. Back to uni in a whole new campus, and I have to try new outfits that I would have never thought I could pull off. 

So  I thought that I would start with something small and go for a patterned blazer. I've always loved them on other people, and Im very  picky when it comes to blazers hence why I only own two. But this one from H&M I cut perfectly. My next step maybe is the get the matching pencil skirt and wear it out.

Dress - ASOS// Necklace - ASOS// Lipstick - Topshop in Charmed

Well I know this has been a long time.. but I've promised myself to keep up with this from now on, and not get lazy like I have been lately. But thats partly because I've been working a lot covering people who are lucky enough to go on holiday. I'm not going abroad this year due to going to Paris. But I am going to London for a couple of day in August. 

This outfit was worn out of pure heat. I was too hot to wear anything clingy, so I grabbed my Navy smock which due to not being fitted let through a lovely breeze. Also I was just too hot to even attempt any sort of accessories, so I just stuck to one of my favourite necklaces to add something to the look. Lately I have been too lazy to do anything with my hair so I just keep putting it in a side braid. This gets it all out of my face, but still leaves a bit of felinity. So this hair style will be featured in a few upcoming posts.

Got the Tropical Blues

Crop Top- River Island//Shorts - Monki//Necklace & Cardigan - H&M//Lipstick - Topshop in Charmed

I know this is a little bit of a sloppy post butI just came in from dinner with friends and realised I really liked my comfortable outfit today, perfect for this sunny weather were are actually getting. Because I couldn't use natural night, you couldn't see the colours in the top and the shorts, hence the last picture with flash. When I first put this outfit on I didn't think it really went well, but after leaving it on for a while it started to grow on me and I loved how mismatched it was.

Spring/Summer Wishlist - Harrods Edition

Spring and Summer are two of the best season for Fashion. One thing I love is bringing some bright fun colours into my wardrobe for a bit of life and freshness. After wrapping up all winter, Spring is what I call the transition stage for summer. Its the stage where you come out of hibernation, you gradually start to strip back them layers, start exposing your scary pasty legs and start slapping on the tan. For spring I like to bring both my winter and summer clothes together by wearing a colourful dress, but keep my tights on and adding a thinner Spring friendly cardigan. 

One of favourite things to do for Spring is shop! I bet that didn't surprise you. But Spring is the best times to pick up them new pieces to add to your wardrobe. Just by changing up your accessories you can completely change up your wardrobe making yourself Spring/Summer ready. 

As I am going to London next month, I recently went onto Harrods online accessories department to brows a little and see what Spring/Summer accessories they had. This resulted in a little wishlist which we all know ends in us getting overly excited and wanting everything our eyes lay upon. 

Now I must say, when looking through the accessory section each item I chose here have not only been chosen because I like them and they are spring appropriate. But also because I loved these items in many different colours. For example the Marc by Marc Jacobs watch came in three colours and I could not choose between this lovely Red or a neon pink. Neons are huge around the Spring/Summer time, and if you aren't daring enough to walk out in a neon dress or trousers, a watch it's the perfect place to start and still pull the trend into your outfit. 

Next are the sunglasses, one of the most important items to when when the weather warms up and the sun wants to make an appearance. Not only are they protecting your eyes, but they look good too and come in all different shapes and colours. I was instantly drawn to these because of the shape. Although they are a more rounded frame;which happens to be very on trend this season. But because they are a very subtle rounded shape they are easier to pull off and not feel like a bug. Also as they are a softer shade and shape, I think these would compliment most people.

Ah sandals, my go to shoe in the summer. If you ever see me out I can guarantee I will have a pair of sandals strapped to my feet. I prefer to go for black sandals due to how versatile they are. Especially with a pair like these Alexander McQueen sandals, at £395 black is your best option. You could practically wear them with everything! Guarenteing you your moneys worth. And as I will be wearing sandals all summer so why not do it in style. I am debating saving up the money and buying these lovely shoes.

One thing I love to do when I'm running a quick errand is just take my purse with me. I find this so much easier as I'm not rummaging round my bag known to my friends as the Mary Poppins bag; this also gives me a good excuse to have an extremely gorgeous purse, and purse shop more than a normal amount. This Vivienne Westwood purse  is THE purse for spring/summer. Once again going back to the trend of neon but this would also make a lovely clutch for a night out if you were daring enough to take it out. As soon as I saw it i absolutely fell in love with it. Its the perfect size, colour, and its so simple yet so stunning. 

Now every girl has one item she always has in the back of her mind. And item that that she compares every bag she sees to and wants every bag she sees to be. This for me is a Mulberry Bayswater. These bags are so timeless and sophisticated. One thing I had with bags is when they are too big that everything just falls to the bottom and you struggle to find anything (which I am guilty of too.) When I went onto Harrods I have to admit handbags were the first section I went to, and when I saw that they were in no shortage of Mulberry bags I got excited. Mulberry just seem to know how to get it right for me, not only is this a classic bag but the range of colours would set any bag lover jumping. I found a couple of spring bags by Mulberry I couldn't choose between but decided this pistachio colour is nothing like I own or have seen. Its the perfect bag to add a big of spring to your wardrobe, even if you're like me and still wearing your monochrome colours. This is bag screams Spring perfection to me. And one day hopefully I will own one.

Last is this amazing Alexander McQueen scarf. Two years ago McQueen came out with the extremely well known and popular skull scarves. As much as I do love them, I wanted to step away from it a bit and when I found this Dragonfly scarf I instantly wanted it. It still has some subtle skulls around the boarder of the scarf but its full with some beautiful pastel Dragonflies; not only is it a delicate piece but what makes me love it so much is the way it seems to drape and fall so effortlessly.

Top & Necklace- ASOS//Skirt- Topshop//Bra- Urban Outfitters//Lipstick- Barry M in 151

For some reason trying to shoot this really wasn't working, but these are the best I can do.
I absolutely love this top and once discovering it was very low on each side I decided why not play it up and have some fun with the top. So I added a crazy bright bra to the mix.

Top- Topshop//Trousers & Necklace - New Look//Lipstick- MACs Viva Glam Nicki

I was in a little rush this morning and didn't have much time to shoot this, hence some unflattering shots. But I HAD to put up a post about my trousers. After a long hunt and problems with ordering them online, I took a chance with the sizing and finally brought them. And thank the lord I did! Not only do they fit well, they are made well , they are super comfortable, and they are flattering on any figure. These are a little different for my taste as printed trousers are to wild for me. But now I'm converted and have already ordered two more pairs of printed pants. Although I know this is a very one toned outfit and could be seen as bland, I tried to add some colour by adding a more feminine and colourful lip choice. This together I feel works and brings together  the outfit a little more. Plus I got to rediscover a lipstick that was pushed to the back of my draw. 

Thankfully we have been having some really lovely sunny weather which meant I could pull out this outfit. Let's hope it's here to stay!

P.S. Please excuse my open bathroom door. For some reason I can never remember to close it when shooting.

Where Have I Been & Update

Hi there! I know its been a while but now I'm back.. if you knew I was gone in the first place. April has been a CRAZY month for me. Well first the biggest thing is I turned 21! And thats where I start at the beginning of April. Where I had my first present and me and my boyfriend went to Paris for 5 days! This was such an amazing experience! From the food, to culture, to the history. This experience is one I won't be forgetting. So if you're considering going to Paris, even for a weekend I would highly recommend going. 
Once I was back I had two weeks till I would turn the big 2, 1. which obviously meant  a party was in order. And this took up a lot of time. From sorting out family who were traveling in, to food going wrong, all the way to what on earth and I going to wear!!

Well this past week happened to be my birthday and party which as you would imagine I am just getting over now. I spent my birthday shopping and eating at my new favourite South American restaurant called Bodega and with my family on the evening. 

But the party was amazing! And now the month is coming to an end I can say this has been one of the best months I have had in a long long time. But now its nearly over I can finally get back to my usual routine and start uploading again.

P.S. Im going to do a post on my birthday outfit
