T SHIRT DRESS

Happy Friday! Can't believe it's nearly been a week since my birthday! The whole weekend went so smooth and I felt really content and spoilt afterwards! We stayed at the Marylebone hotel and went to Zizzi's for dinner, followed by a night out at Tiger Tiger in Piccadily. The following day we stuffed ourselves with cake at the Cumberland Hotel for afternoon tea, and walked it off by having a mooch on Oxford Street. I weirdly don't feel stressed about turning 24. I feel like I'm definitely in a better mental place than I was a year ago, and I've really making more of an effort to save for the future and I'm currently on a browsing online shops ban! We will see how long that lasts, but I'm trying to look at happiness in the long term (e.g buying a house), compared to happiness in the short term (e.g spend money on clothes which never get worn!) 

These two items that I'm wearing though have been worn three times in less than a week so these purchases were sensible haha! I first spotted the Topshop cropped jacket a couple of weeks ago online and I was one the fence to begin with. The sleeves are admittedly a a fashion phase but not many denim jackets tickle my fancy. The more I saw it on social media though the more I got tempted and I am so happy with this item and and the fit (wearing size 8) and the sleeves do look awesome! I genuinely hope I wear this jacket into summer. At least it isn't a heavy oversized style jacket which is going to make you hot when the weather gets warm! Buy this before this sells out I warn you! 

So the Missguided grey T shirt dress I also spotted on twitter but I genuinely cannot remember where I saw it! I was drawn to the lace hem and baggy fit. My first initial thought was 'whats the point in looking at this product, it's a dress and it's going to be too short'. The reviews sold it for me, with several people complaining that the dress was too long for them (this is when I'm winning), and the next day I tried it on and it met above and beyond my expectations. To give you an idea, I'm 5ft 8 and I'm wearing the size 8 when I would say I'm normally a 10. The size up just swamped me, but if I'm standing straight the dress literally sits slightly above my knees so I'm not surprised this dress was long on some people! I know this sounds sad but I'm even tempted to re order another size 8 just incase I over wear and ruin this one. IT'S SUCH A RARE OCCASION TO FIND A DRESS THAT FITS PERFECT and for £18 I will be kicking myself if I ruin this and it suddenly it sells out. 

The Quay Australia sunglasses are also new! I have been waiting for this style to come to the UK and then I suddenly found them on Topshop (the same time I found the denim jacket) so these two were meant to be worn together ha!

FLUFFY COLLAR


Hey Hey!! Hope everyone has had a super weekend! I've been in London all of this weekend because it's my Birthday today!! This post is scheduled but the plan in London is a meal at Zizzi's, a night out and some afternoon tea! Turning 24 ain't that bad! 

So the team at Boohoo kindly gifted me this blooming awesome denim jacket with the fluffy collar. I was drawn to it straight away with the statement embroidery and I have always been a fan of acid denim. I'm wearing the size medium and would say this is the perfect fit for me. It may not be the cheapest jacket, but I wouldn honestly recommend, and you can take the fluffy collar off when it starts to get a little warmer. I would love to wear this again with a skirt or get creative with some double denim in the future. We shall see! 

I wanted to keep this look pretty casual because on this day I coincidently met up with one of the girls from Boohoo, and Matt had a meeting in London also. Goodness knows how I wore these Missy Empire boots, but the platform heels made this easy to strut about in. I was wearing my Fitbit at the time and I walked something over 11,000 steps and luckily my feet weren't too bad afterwards! The Missguided top has been one of my most worn items recently, purely because its a flattering fit, and I love the ruffled hem just to give it some shape! I have only seen the colour grey on the Missguided website but noticed that New Look stock this style of top for under a tenner! Will link them below for ya! 

I need to also give this Boohoo bag a shoutout! I love the metallic shine and quilted detail. Bags with a chain seem to be really trending at the moment and this one ticks the box for affordability. They also do this in silver but this one is more of a rose gold colour. Easy to wear for a night out too! 
Whilst you are reading all of this I will hopefully be eating my bodyweight in cake and also being deep down depressed that I haven't got my life together yet but we will worry about that later! Should have another post for you lot on Wednesday!

Dolly Rocka

Evening all! So this time I have teamed up with the Brand Dolly Rocka to style their velvet dress and skull bag. I have been looking for a velvet dress for ages but many seem to be too short for me, but luckily this one in a size up was the perfect fit and length (I'm wearing the size 12 and I'm 5ft 8). I love the versatility of this dress, it would also look great with a t-shirt and a denim jacket for a more summery look. Check out their website because they sell such a great selection of dresses and going out tops!
For this look I wanted to keep it genuine to my style so I opted for this Missguided studded jacket which I've been needing to blog! It was the perfect detailed biker to give this outfit some print and colour. Apparently some people have complained that the studs have fallen off their jacket but I haven't come across that problem yet. 
The Dolly Rocka skull bag went brilliantly with the biker jacket and velvet dress combo! It has two compartments making it perfect for a night out when you want to separate your make-up from your wallet or it's a small handy day bag for when you need to pop to the shops. It will be great for a future festival in the summer too! 
I also think this velvet dress would look fab with knee high boots but on this occasion I opted for some comfy River Island Ankle boots.

Finding the perfect jumper dress

Happy Sunday!! I hope everyone is having a chilled weekend! I have a couple weeks away from retail now so I want to make the most of this time by blogging and blogging and if I have the guts I want get back onto Youtube. I have recently just redecorated my room and I'm pretty chuffed with the outcome. It includes copper hangers, a pineapple moneybox, an open rail and a lots of white! Considering my room used to be DARK PURPLE I am over the moon and my room feels so much bigger too! Potential room tour blog post might just happen!
So I have been meaning to shoot this look for yonks but I have been on a mission to find the perfect jumper dress. Ideally I wanted one that was baggy, and camel coloured, but sometimes you have to just accept that some clothing just isn't right or flattering for your figure. When I found what I thought was the dream camel jumper dress, my sister and mum both thought I looked like a shapeless potato sack (thanks for the brutal honesty guys!) 
So my sister actually suggested this Missguided purple jumper dress for me. Although it wasn't camel or was a smock style fit, I knew the colour would go with my hair and it wasn't badly priced either. Wearing something that actually shaped me and my curves weirdly worked better than wearing a dress that hid them. You can't really tell with the New Look gilet on top, but this dress really is a lovely fit. Short (but that was expected), but better than any potato sack for sure! 
So it got styled with my new Boohoo metallic bag which I picked up from one of their recent events. I love the quilted detail and chain strap. I'm preferring smaller bags lately to oversized tote styles. This sized bag definitely is a nice feature to have in an outfit but isn't too big where it looks distracting, or takes your eyes away from the rest of the outfit. Would recommend this for a night out bag also if you are bored of carrying a clutch bag all evening!

Rose and Studs


Happy Friday!! How on earth are we into March already!? At least it's my birthday this month and I've got that to look forward to but I'm already dreading turning 24! Ugh!! My boyfriend will be turning 25 at the end of this year! I mean thats half way to 50, for goodness sake someone make it staaaap!!! 

So I have finally caught onto this fish net tights trend! Where on earth did this trend come from? I really wasn't sure to begin with, and it has been a grower (or maybe I have just been forced into liking this trend since it has been on my Insta feed constantly!), but I had an outfit in mind and thought I would introduce the tights in with this look. 

Can I just say, no one mentions how flipping hard it is to put these tights on?! It took me ages to adjust my big toe through the right gaps so the tights sat comfortably, and then no mentions how weird they feel when you put your jeans on. What was even more awkward is that I did have to shoot another outfit after this one and it left the worst criss cross imprint in my skin and I happened to be wearing a skirt! 

But do I like the finished product and I am happy with how these tights look. Admittedly my Asos jeans aren't no where near as ripped or have as many holes as some I've seen on social media, so if you want to give the tights a go but don't want be destroying a pair of jeans to get the massive holes, then start with a pair with subtle rips and make the holes bigger if needed! 
I bought my fish net tights off eBay but I have a feeling Miss Pap have the exact style in stock so do check them out and their Instagram because a lot of their images lately have these tights included in the their photos. 

So I have been wanting to style this studded rose embroidered jacket for ages but just haven't found the chance and I've been waiting for the weather to get a tad warmer. I originally bought this in the Zara Boxing Day sale but had to find the size up when the jacket I ordered was too small. Zara have a rubbish policy where you can't put sale items on hold (even if you just want to swap the size), so again I was a sucker for eBay and had to purchase mine from there. The damage is done! I have found the exact one but without the studs on Shein for such a good price so its worth having a look! I love the detail on the back and this rose print seem to be dominating the fashion world just as much as these tights! 

I need to also give these Zara boots a mention. I'm wearing a non black pair for once wooo!! I love the nude pink colour and the clear heel is the perfect height for day wear walkabouts! I love the sock like fit and they were under £30 so they didn't break the bank at all! I've linked them below!

That Zara Jumper (and where to still buy it)


Evening all! Did anyone go to LFW? I really couldn't be bothered this year. I think it was held at the Strand but ever since they left Somerset House it really hasn't had that spark which I truly miss. Somerset House was a great social spot and large enough for everyone to move around, get papped, or just to mingle. I remember the last time I went to the Soho LFW everyone was rammed together on Brewer Street and people were trying to take walking shots in the middle of the road whilst cars were trying to get past LOL not a great look! 

That doesn't mean you can't make your own effort back in your hometown though! I stupidly fell in love with this Zara embroidered jumper when it went into sale and it had already sold out! So yes I did pay a silly amount for this on eBay but I have no regrets! I normally love my statement jackets but this embroidered knit is something special and the fit and quality of it makes it a jumper that I wouldn't want to wear all the time and ruin. Luckily for you guys I have found this online for roughly £35 and its STILL IN STOCK! It may not be from the Zara website, but it's the exact one and worth if you select the free slow delivery option. 

So I was really unsure if I wanted to wear this jumper with the Missguided buckle skirt, but I wanted this look to be slightly over the top and for it to purposely have a lot going on. I probably would have felt more at ease if I wore this look at LFW because the street style at an event like that can be over the top and very creative. I would suggest going down a size In this skirt though! It does give after a couple of wears! 

I also really love this cute little quilted bag from Topshop. Normally I like my oversized statement bags but wanted to keep this one small and dainty, yet it definitely isn't boring (it actually reminds me of the Gucci Marmont style). Luckily this one is only £25 and doesn't break the bank so I would recommend this one if you are sick of using the same old clutch bag for an evening look and want to go for a little boxy style instead!
