PIXIE CUT MUST HAVE

Subtle Paisley




Hey Hey! Hope everyone had a lovely weekend! At the moment I'm trying to cut back as much Dairy as I can because it can apparently improve the skin if you suffer from spots. So far I think it has helped, but you have no idea how hard it was for me to turn down my favourite Eaton Mess dessert when I was out for a meal on Sunday! If I can stick it out then I will blog about it but for now you have another outfit to check out! 

So Boohoo have been SLAYING with their festival clothing right now, and what I love is that so much of their clothing is super affordable! I think my favourite item is the paisley sleeveless jacket which is only £16! I love the subtle paisley print and the tassels help to give it some movement! It was the perfect jacket to go with the denim lace up top. It was a nice change to wear denim on the top half for a change! Plus It's a lovely lightweight material. It would also look great with white jeans or if you are brave enough, embrace the double denim look! 
For the bottom half I just opted for some faux suede shorts from Missguided but made them statement with the double buckle belt. This belt is a nightmare to fit through the belt loops but it's so worth it for the final result. 

Finished off the look with my New Quay Australia sunglasses and I am obsessed with chokers right now! This loop choker that I'm wearing is also from Boohoo and it's back in stock!

FLOATY SLEEVES

I have finally blogged this dress! I was meant to shoot it last Saturday when we had a spell of lovely weather and Matt and I went to Oxford Christ Church Meadow for a picnic. The skies were clear and there was a thirty percent chance of rain. Well suddenly at 3pm cloud surrounded us and that turned to thunder, lightning and HEAVY RAIN! I was having to use the picnic blanket as an umbrella darting from shop to shop! It was an absolute nightmare you would have seen this if you follow me on snapchat (thepixiecut if you wanna give me a staaalllk). I have to say thumbs up to St Moriz because I was wearing INSTANT TAN that day and even though I did get a bit wet, the tan didn't streak! I was well impressed! 

So now I can finally talk about this statement Missguided dress! I do love my dresses when it gets to summer, and if they have a pretty print or a festival feel to them then I love it even more. I love the floaty sleeves and the print is bold but girly. Best way to describe it in two words is 'Festival feminine'! The only reason why I wouldn't give this dress a 10/10 is because its sadly too short for me and I am wearing shorts underneath this. These shorts in fact are only £15! I never have to worry about bending over when I wear these and luckily the dress has an inside lining on the bottom half so you can't actually see the shorts through them *smug face*.

I rarely discuss my Quay Australia Sunglasses when I really feel they should have a little mention, since I'm always wearing a pair of sunnies in my post nowadays! I think the colour of these are so unique and the aviator shape make these easy to style. I have always been a fan of the aviator style because they are oversized (not everyone may like this), but my face is quite wide anyways! The Quay Sunnies can be considered a little expensive but compared to designer prices I think these are a reasonable price! 

The Public Desire lace up sandals and my ASOS denim patch work bag helped complete this look and I can honestly say I felt very summery and ready for the festival season!

STRAPLESS BRAS ARE A MUST


Evening! So a couple weeks ago I blogged a denim bardot top which was very new for me, but a good change indeed! I really wasn't sure what I was going to think of this particular style of top because they do limit you a bit! Strapless bras are a must and your arms can feel a tad restricted, but hey ho thats fashion for ya and sometimes how something looks overrides the comfort and practicality! They do look very flattering though and this one from Boohoo is comfy! It's just annoying always having to adjust the sides so they are always level and that they don't 'ping' up! This one was a bargain though and its going to be easy to wear with my summer clothing so I'm still giving it a thumbs up! 

Also say hello to my new Quay Australia Sunglasses called 'Every Little Thing'. I was slightly undecided because they do look similar to my blue 'My girl' ones, but the cat eye shape is a tad different and the lens is more of a lilac blue compared to the aqua blue on my other ones. Are they worth it for £35? Well I did have a gift card but even if I did pay full price for these I know I'm going to wear them loads for future posts! If you like cat eye sunglasses then I would recommend! 

The shoes from Ego are probably my favourite item in this look! I love the strappy design and I've realised that I don't own any grey summer shoes. You are bound to get compliments if you wear these and I need to also add HOW BLOOMING COMFY they are! I was literally skipping about in these three inch heels and it made me think back to my times in retail where I would walk around on the shop floor all day in heels. I do sometimes wonder how on earth did I actually get through my shifts in heels but I'm sure you girls know that when you find a pair that give you a spring in your step, then you can literally feel like you can conquer the world in them! 

Note: I'm also going to try and shorten my posts hoping that the 'less if more' motto works, and it will also help me think about my content more instead of general waffling. I hope I did okay!

ALL ABOUT THE DETAIL


Good evening!! Hasn't the weather been lush lately! My hay fever has made the biggest welcome and I'm having to type this inside when all I wanna do is chill outside and make the most of the sun! 

Okay so this outfit is all about the detail! I bought this Topshop reverse bomber jacket a while ago but I know it keeps selling out, so I wanted to blog it whilst some sizes were still available. Infact when I was going to buy it in Topshop Oxford Circus ages ago the last two were on a mannequin and they were refusing to take them down due to 'health and safety' *roll eyes*. When you have worked in Topshop for three years I find this rule so frustrating and all I wanted to do was take the jacket down myself (I sure know how to!). Luckily it came back online and it was worth the wait. Because it's reversed it does make this jacket quite a thick material so you definitely don't need to wear any layers underneath it!

Can I just say I haven't worn culottes AT ALL this year yet!? What on earth is wrong with me? If there was any item I wore loads last year it was the culottes for sure! I bought these last summer but I have always been a fan of the frayed hem and I find them such a flattering fit. I've a couple below for ya!

The Missguided Western belt is a must! It was just a nice accessory to wear for a change and they help to shape the culottes. It is a nightmare to fit on, but once its secure I think it's such a statement accessory! 

I've been after some lace up comfy shoes so these ones from Public Desire did the job! I love that the ankle is cut out so it does make these mighty breathable and they are easy to walk about in. I can imagine these also looking great for some festival looks! Watch this space!

BARDOT BEAUT





Good evening guys! Hope everyone had a good weekend. This weekend has been really chilled, but I did go for Sunday Lunch for my Dad's Birthday which was a treat! Any restaurant that does my favourite desert, Eaton Mess is going to my a fav, and this pub ticked that box! Right now though I am currently watching Toy Story, but next week I am staying in London so I'm looking forward to that! 

Okay so one item I keep seeing loads of is these cold shoulder tops. I always thought these were massively popular around Summer Peak time but this year they have definitely made an earlier appearance. We have become very impatient but what I do like about us Brits is that we never take a mild summer day for granted and we will dress like it's 25 degrees outside. So last week I took the opportunity to wear my new Boohoo denim bardot top. I love the frill edge and I thought it was a bargain, wardrobe essential! Sometimes you have to take a gamble and purchase something that is slightly out of your comfort zone. Cold shoulder tops are nice, but I'm not obsessed with them like my jackets. However I have no regrets buying this, and it's defiantly encouraged me to try other cold shoulder tops to style in the future! Don't forget to use the hashtag myboohoostyle for a chance to be featured on the Boohoo Instagram page!

So denim always looks great with black so I did play safe and wear my Missguided zipped skirt. I have worn this skirt loads since I purchased it a few months ago, but I think it has stretched a lot over time? It's not as snug fit as it used to be. I have linked another one below which is almost similar, but looks more bodycon style. It's tempting to even buy another because I love the zip detail and the length is perfect on my 5ft 8 frame. 

Can we discuss how convincing this Chloe Faye dupe is please!? I have been on the hunt for the snake detailed bag for months and when I came across this leather one on Ali Express I HAD to buy it. I think when I bought it it was slightly over £50? But for a leather bag and the fact that it looks designer (the designer one is over a grand) makes me feel like I'm winning. 

Whats getting me excited about summer are all of these cute sandals floating about. Public Desire are of course slaying with the collection right now and these lace up ones go perfect with the bag! They do these in other colours and the grey ones are definately on my radar for future looks.

PINEAPPLES


Happy Friday! Hope everyone has had a decent week! Today I attempted and I repeat, ATTEMPTED to film a youtube video. I don't know why I get so nervous and wound up about it. It's a camera. I'm not afraid of the camera when I'm shooting outfits but at least I don't have to talk! I talk so quickly that I get my words mixed up so I was having to re do the video again. I'm not giving up though, and hoping it's just a matter of building up my confidence with it. Watch. this. space. 

So lets start off with this awesome pineapple bodysuit from Kiss and Tell on ASOS. It was instant love and it's so flattering with a pair of jeans or shorts. I love how practical bodysuits are. Yes they are a nightmare when you need to go to the loo, but you never have to tuck the bodysuit in, or worry about the bodysuit bunching up like an awkward length t shirt. As long as I can put my bodysuit on after going to the loos in a nightclub then I can deal with the hassle! 

So I decided to to wear this with my khaki bomber from Young Bohemians. I love the shine and the orange lining to give it some boldness! When I ordered it the only size left was the six but it's really oversized so I'm happy with the fit. I have linked a load of similar bomber jackets below that would suit this look, because this one keeps selling out! But I will of course mention it on my Instagram or Twitter if I see it reappear again. 

I have been after this River Island suede bag for yonks! It sold out on their website ages ago but luckily it got restock on ASOS. It literally feels like a Marry Poppins bag but whats also great is that you can fold it over and hold it like a clutch if you fancied. At least this bag will be long lasting and the price is seriously worth it.
