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.

I added a  bit of ‘bling’ to my outfit with a white marc jacobs watch, pandora rings and a chunky gold necklace, bang on trend! With the amount of different coloured jeans/trousers i have this outfit is easily changeable and wearable for any occasion!

Keep it dressy!

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!

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!

Been in such a bad mood recently as the sun has been out but I’m stuck in doors doing assignments! 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! 🐰

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!

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!
