Sunshine!

And finally the sun has come out, although its deceivingly cold! 

When i woke up this morning i was so excited to get out the summer dresses, get a tan, wear my sunnies, but i got outside and it was freezing!? How unfair, teasing me with the brightness outside!

Seeing as it was still sunny, i could wear my ray bans, which is great seeing as they are practically brand new the amount of times I’ve managed to wear them! I teamed these with cute red jeans to give some colour, a chiffon shirt and a cashmere jumper, topped off with chunky gold necklace and some studded slipper shoes.

Wedding bells are ringing!

I can hear the bells ringing and me screaming, I DONT KNOW WHAT TO WEAR! My sister recently got married and said i must wear a very nice outfit, no ifs or buts, i have to get something new and beautiful. I usually love challenges like this, by my sister is a very hard woman to please!

I started off by having a quick look online, but only at shops where i could then go and try things on, i hate ordering online when i don’t know what it will look like on me! I chose shops which were all located in Birmingham, started off with Reiss, FCUK and Selfridges, these of course gave me millions of choices… which possibly made it harder.

I decided my favourite was a gorgeous dress in a mix of orange colours (told you i was obsessed with orange!), now i just had to pray they had it in store. Arriving in Birmingham i ran straight to FCUK, not taking any chances on missing out on the last one by stopping in any other shops! Unfortunately though i did miss it, the last one was sold the day before.. in my size.

I thought it was all over, no chance in getting the dress i loved and no chance in me agreeing on a different one. The shop assistant did go on to tell me they have one… in London… now i was heading to London, but it was the weekend before the wedding, do i risk it? YES! This is the dress of my dreams, for a short period of time anyway! After getting to London, thinking there would be one French Connection shop i was wrong there was 3! So i spent the day running around London finding each shop, actually a very good way to go sight seeing too! Being my luck it was the last shop i went to that had it, but i can’t complain as i was in my size and they did 15% student discount, my luck was in!

Dress:  French Connection £195 (£165.75 with student discount)

Shoes: New Look £22

Purse: Marc Jacobs £180

Worn this dress a few more times after the wedding too for daytime meals and also nights out, its perfect for any occasion!

The luck was in for my sister too, it was a beautiful sunny day and the wedding was amazing! Her and her husband looked gorgeous (she was dressed head to toe in gucci) and it was a wonderful ceremony!

Happy celebrations!

Dress to impress!

At work you need to dress for the job you want not the one you have! That means don’t be a plain jane, stand out, get noticed! I’m currently in my first year of university and this means lots of presentations unfortunately, but it does mean i get to buy clothing for it! Most people I’ve watched for a presentation went for a black dress with a black blazer or a  black skirt, white shirt and black blazer… Me, no, i thought id go for a bright orange blazer (as seen in my spring post, it can be worn for anything!) and a nude dress with some accessories!

Blazer: Mango £35

Dress: AX Paris from New Look £22

Belt: Asos £12

Bag: River Island £18

This outfit really got me noticed, not only is it professional, its fashionable! Plus i just happened to be doing a presentation on Amazon.com so the blazer really did match my work!

As for menswear i’ve got some experience in this, my clever boyfriend has recently got a year in industry as part of his university course, therefore a shopping trip was clearly needed to get him suitably fashionable for work next year!

Looking online M&S had some lovely suits, probably made better by the model (David Gandy, YUM) and also Next were great for money. After searching round the favourite of mine was a gorgeous navy 3 piece suit from Next, unfortunately the boyfriend didn’t see the need for a 3 piece, even though it looked amazing, so we ended up with suit jacket and trousers, a crisp white shirt and a lovely knitted mustard tie, that i made him buy because he couldn’t see how amazing it was!

Excuse his face, he doesn’t like photos so tries to pull the funniest faces!

Suit Jacket: Next £80

Suit Trousers: Next £40

Tie: Next £10

Shirt: Next £20

After this we also ordered some shoes from Next which matched perfectly to the belt, so his outfit was complete and he is definitely going to be the best dressed intern next year!

Have fun at work!

Workout your fashion.

Im talking about the gym! I’ve recently treated myself to a new gym membership and outfit after eating far too much chocolate over easter… Even though your at the gym doesn’t mean your style has to suffer, you can get some really cute gym clothes at some pretty good prices!

If you want to get top notch stuff and pay the full price go to the brand sport store e.g. Nike, Adidas etc but theres some great looking stuff in the high street shops such as h&m, primark or branded wear for cheaper in t k maxx and sports direct!

Seeing as i already had Nike trainers, i thought i may as well go all out a match! Luckily on the nike online store they were having a sale! So bought some running tights, some shorts and a cropped vest. Managed to find the exact match on the colour of the sports bra, my trainers and the water bottle, felt so proud to be all matching and looking professional!

ImageTights/Leggings: Nike £30

Shorts: Nike £20

Sports bra/cropped top: Nike £22

Vest: H&M £6

Trainers: Sports Direct (Nike) £28

Water Bottle: Sports Direct (Nike) £4

Everything is so comfortable and definitely worth the price, check out the reviews on the website first, as i found the cheaper running tights to actually have better reviews! You can do so many sports in these clothes too, I’ve played tennis, gone running, gone to the gym and even headed to the shops in them, thats how comfortable i feel walking around in them, plus it makes me look like i do lots of working out to the people who see me!

Night out? No problem!

Recently all my friends have had birthdays and i was starting to run out of things to wear! Wardrobe full but nothing suitable, am i right? Well borrow then! Friends, family, anyone. 

Whenever i go on a night out all i see is black, grey, white… BORING! Spice it up, add colours, go crazy, it is a night out after all! When it came the last birthday night out of the month, i decided to ask around for something i could borrow, luckily my sister and my mum were kind enough to lend! 

I’m really loving on orange and red at the moment, so when my sister produced this gorgeous dress out of her wardrobe i just couldn’t say no! Teamed with a quirky hat, cute ankle socks, matching (with the socks) clutch and heeled boots my outfit was complete!

Image

Black Pork Pie Hat: Topshop £25

Multicoloured Dress: Topshop (My Sisters)

Blue Clutch: Jaques Vert (My Mums)

Blue Socks: Topshop £3

Black Heels: KG £30 (sale!)

The hat and socks add a new season trend to the outfit as well as a cute quirk, and the slit in the dress adds a cheeky something for a night out!

Have a great night!

How to bring spring to this weather!

Image

Pork Pie Hat: Topshop £25

Blazer: Mango £35

Leather Leggings: Topshop £28

So apparently its spring right now? Doesn’t feel like it! To bring a hint of colour to spring this year and cheer up this dark weather, put on a colourful blazer! Orange is completely on trend this season, clothes and accessories, so grab them while you can as they will be great all through summer too! Add a little quirk to the outfit with a cute hat, even accessorise it with a ribbon or some feathers, looks super cute and people seem to love it! Leather look leggins keep it warm yet give a hint sexy and summer, go high waisted and you can wear them with a crop top as well as a slouchy shirt over the top.

Happy Spring!
