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!

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!

Summer colours!

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! 🐰

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!!

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!
