Bright Prints

At the moment i am loving printed items! Be it jackets, tops, trousers… EVERYTHING! And there’s nothing wrong with clashing every now and then, it can work and is on trend!

The print i went for was on the trousers faded into 2 colours, a faint orange and a blue, great colours together! To link it in and brighten it up i wore an orange blazer, these are great summer colours and clashing is bang on trend!

Clashing prints and colours

Blazer – Mango, £35

Top – Miss Selfridge, £10

Trousers – H&M, SALE £7

Wore this outfit for my Grandma’s 90th Birthday party/BBQ, and there are a lot of fashionistas in my family, including my grandma! Many asked where the trousers were from and complimented me on the way i put the outfit together a few of the cousins were wearing gorgeous printed trousers as well, one of my favourite being yellow trousers with big white flowers printed on them from Zara, absolutely gorgeous!

These trousers can be worn summer, winter, whenever, dressed up or down with layers on top or just a flowing cami top! I believe crazy prints will carry on throughout 2013 so stock up on them ladies… and gents, boys look great in prints too, be out there, get noticed, no one wants to be boring hey!

Have fun with fashion!

Casual Vintage.

Going for a meal with the family, i wanted to be casual but look dressed up, and one way to do that is wear a blazer!

I always like bait of colour in my outfits so i started out by picking bright red jeans, red is a great colour to get you noticed and so easy to team with other things. Once choosing those i then thought about the blazer i would wear and finally just picked out a plain black blazer from my vast collection! Keeping it simple i went for a cute black cami top and vintage nike blazers.

Long time, no fashion!

Been off the blog for a while now but sorting everything out and getting back to it!

 

This autumn/winter it is all about the dark florals, taking a summer trend and turning it into a great winter statement. While its still warmer weather i have chosen to team my dark florals with a brighter piece also, holding onto the summer as long as i possibly can!

Dark Florals, winter 2013

 

Floral Head Band: E bay, £4

Scarf: Ted Baker, £59

Top: The kooples, (an amazing present so don’t know the price!)

Trousers: Ted Baker, £109

Another trend is matching pieces, there a so many matching suits in the shops at the moment and i am dying to buy one, would be perfect if you want all eyes on you in the office!

When i spotted these trousers in the shop i knew they were the ones and then the amazing shop assistant in Selfridges showed me the matching scarf and i was at the till before she could say you’re welcome! Even better with Ted Baker, if you’re a student like i am you can get 15% discount! Marvellous! 

I had so many compliments on this outfit, everyone wanted to know where i got it, the pink floral headband really set the outfit out as well as it tied in the the flowers on the scarf and trousers. Either way this is a trend I am happy to wear throughout winter to jazz up the normally dull clothing!

Keep cosy!

The white trend.

This spring summer there is a trend for completely white outfits and i love it! A cute white short suit is great for parties, drinks, summery occasions, but seeing as its still a bit nippy in the UK i prefer trousers! I thought id add a bit of pattern to my outfit by teaming a pair of printed tapered trousers with a white blazer and cami. I’ve worn this outfit so far for a night out and a garden birthday party and had fabulous feedback on it!

Blazer: Mango £35

Top: Topshop £15

Trousers: H&M £25

This outfit is super cute on a summery day or to brighten up a miserable one! The white also looks great with a tan so would look gorgeous on holiday, can’t wait for mine!

Enjoy your holidays!

Boo! 😦 But on saturday i thought id give myself a day off and go shopping for some new summer clothes! Walking round the shops i found a few things i liked but not loved so didn’t buy much, but a few items still cheered me up! By a few i mean 2 pairs of shorts a top and some jewellery! So i was one happy bunny! 🐰

Thought the crazy colours would be great for summer as either a casual day or night outfits and also a going out clothes! Plus I’m loving the bargains you can get in TKMaxx, only usually found online or in the Birmingham store but worth the looking around!

Hope you guys are making the most of the sun!!

Wear what you want!

Im not one of these girls who is scared of wearing what they like, its fashion my way, i like it, and style is about the one wearing it!

Walked round loads of shops today for hours! Couldn’t find a thing i liked, and i don’t know about you but it puts me in such a bad mood coming out of a shopping trip with nothing! After my round of shopping we went for a quick trip round the shops for my boyfriend. There it was on the back wall of river island, a comfy boyfriend tee, with leopard print on too, my favourite to add a little spice 😉

Image

Excuse the face, was after an early morning lecture and sorry for the excessive pouting too!

I think this tee is perfect for summer or winter weather, teamed with leggings or shorts and even a maxi skirt would look great!

Let me tell you this is no where near the first guys item of clothing i have bought (or borrowed), one i find them to be much cheaper then buying a girls ‘boyfriend’ style top, no idea why as they’re the same!? And also they are so comfy but stylish!

Top: River Island £16

Leggings: ASOS £8

Stay comfy!
