Wearing all camel neutral shades this weekend.
Perhaps a little too matchey matchey…but I am obsessed with colour! Also, how does someone with slightly larger breasts wear a polo neck without looking like they’ve got saggy busts? When I was younger I desperately wanted larger boobs but I was a late bloomer and before I realised I was 21 with double D’s – I’ve tried loosing weight in the hope that they’ll get smaller however that failed. So now I spend most of time finding clothes that conceal them. Today however I decided to wear a high neck top – although it was short lived as I wrapped a scarf around me 43seconds later. I wear a scarf pretty much all day, everyday. My current favourite skirt and probably the most expensive skirt I’ll ever own, from Topshop – it’s incredible! Such a statement piece as well as a capsule item in the wardrobe and I love a bit of leopard. My new bucket bag, it took me a while to jump on the bucket bag trend and I was eyeing up the Mansur Gavriel bags, I absolutely love the size with the pop of red oh and the leather quality is pretty awesome. I was tossing and turning between the nude and the black but I thought that the black one would match with everything so a cheeky little Net-a-porter order was made! The trainers give this whole outfit a ‘casual’ vibe. Your standard Nike Air Max – very old school but your feet will thank-you for it! I was having a good thing going on here with my ‘regular’ outfit posts but due to bad weather I had to take a little step back – hopefully with half term this week I’ll be able to take full advantage of it and be able take lots of outfit posts!
The most expensive clothing piece in my wardrobe is probably a leather jacket, I own a couple but my favourite one is this from Muubaa, not a brand that I hear much about and to be honest I can’t even remember how I stumbled across their website but I recall lusting over so many of the leather pieces and decided on this number. And would you believe me when I tell you that this is a size 6?! I am far from a size 6 now but once upon a time I was and I think in the last 5 years of my owning this jacket the material has aged beautifully and stretched to fit me perfectly. Good quality leather just wears out so well and I absolutely adore this jacket, its definitely an essential. I am eyeing a leather jacket in All Saints but it’ll have to wait until I find a good enough reason to justify it. Also, cashmere jumpers…a dangerous and expensive addiction, this dark wine jumper was purchased from ASOS White. I can’t even begin to explain how soft it is! Its not actually that expensive around £90 but the quality totally justifies it and I’ve seen 100% cashmere jumpers sell for far more. ASOS white just need to start stocking more colours. The Reiss Box bag is still going strong, it can’t actually fit very much in, possibly a phone, some cards and a lipstick/gloss nevertheless I am very happy that I have this bag in my life. Standard black Leigh jeans from Topshop, the colour is starting to fade so a replacement need to brought asap. A moment to talk about these trainers – the Nike Air Force 01 with the neutral sole, how amazing are these? I love the colour (although I did search high and low for the black ones and found none) so when Office had 20% off I took full advantage and got them! I’m excited to wear these with other outfits. Size down with these because I normally wear a 5 and ordered a 4.5 but totally could have gone with a size 4 but because I’m too lazy to return/exchange anything I’ll make these work for me. Lastly the tucked in hair trend, I didn’t get it for a while however now I’m totally on board – tempted to cut it quite short – I’ve never gone short so slightly anxious but I love the way it look – opinions? Go short or just carry on tucking it in?

Excuse the hair – not my finest look and the obsessively hair touching photo’s I am still trying to figure out this posing business. Also taking photos in public is very nerve racking. Will I ever get used to it?
80% of what I wear is printed. Fact. Mid-2015 I made somewhat of an attempt to create a monochrome ‘staple’ wardrobe and I failed miserably. I love prints and I love colour so I’m just going to embrace it from now on. I feel quite lucky to be in a job where I can try and push the boundaries a little with my work wear (within limits of course) so here’s me trying to put prints and blocks of colours together – funny enough I quite like it, hence me actually posting it here. I also am a little obsessed with dungarees, I think its the little kid in me – I find them ultra comfortable until I have to go toilet of course. These dungarees were brought from Topshop on sale – I had my eye on them when they were full price but the shopping angels were on my side and I resisted to see if they went on offer – luckily they were! The block coloured shirt from New Look compliments some of the small mustard tones in the dungarees and I adore this colour. Bronx shoes are still going strong, they’re comfortable and slightly edgy – I’ve worn them pretty much every day. I get that this outfit is a bit hit or miss, not everyone will love it but hey ho. How do you feel about dungarees? Just for kids or can adults rock them too?

Well its been a while – she says again – I pretty much disappeared off of social media for a while due to personal reasons, some which I probably am going to share in a video at some point. I should also start off by saying a very merry new year to you all, lets raise a glass to the hope of 2016 bringing you lots of love, happiness and success.
During my time off I had some time to think about where I wanted to take my blog, I feel like nearly everyone I follow on twitter was/is thinking about the same thing and I honestly love talking about beauty so therefore I want to keep that element but maybe try to incorporate more lifestyle and possibly fashion posts? Fashion posts in the past have consisted of wishlists and I want to try and branch out to some ootd – this also means raking in my sister to actually take photos for me. I have no idea how/if I’ll manage with a full-time job whilst also trying to make some YT videos (which have also been quite disappointing as of late) but we shall see.
My first attempt of an ootd I have come to realise is that 1. I have the worst patience when it comes to taking photos. 2, its very difficult to find the ‘right’ location, lastly 3. I have stop every time someone walks past and I embarrassingly shy away. Props to those who do this all the time.
Now I understand that all three pictures are almost identical – I am terrible at the whole elimination of pictures process, hope you don’t mind too much. Sophie Hulme bag is my current love, brought from theoutnet.com I wanted a YSL croc clutch or a Givenchy Antigona however they’re £1600 so this bag is a great substitute. The only thing I worry about is that it’s cream and I am prone to staining anything white/cream. Wish me luck! The trousers are a sale purchase from asos – love the colour, shape and they’re just so darn comfortable and the shoes are from Topsop (currently both are sold out – soz) Jumper is an oldie but goodie from Asos.com
Hope you liked the first official ootd!
Some serious ASOS browsing went down this weekend, I was massively procrastinating and decided to make a wish list for my birthday next month. At this moment in time I want lots of trainers and knitwear – oh how times have changed from five years ago. Oversized knitwear – I want it all. The suede A-line skirt has been on my mind since June but I resisted, however it’s now on sale half price – it’d be rude not too right? I’ve had a love/hate relationship with Culottes – at the moment I am really digging them and think the colour of these are gorgeous, very 70′s-esque.
Metallic shoes have been an obsession of mine recently, so these metallic toe-capped trainers are right up my street. Along with metallic New Balances, I am slowly becoming trainer obsessed and these may just have to add into my collection.
Its been four months since the last one and I forgot how satisfying and incredibly time consuming wish list posts are, also quite dangerous when they’re so close to pay day. I’m a click away from buying everything on my list. It also has just occured to me that all these item would make a fab festival outfit – totally unintended of course. I wish I could say there was a star item out of everything on my list but I pretty much adore everything. H&M Khaki silk shorts are just the dream and I’ve booked Thailand for December so I’m buying all my summer holiday bits now. The Topshop boots have been on my radar for the past month, along with the Quay sunglasses – a brand which is totally having a moment in the blogosphere at the moment and all for good reason – I mean just look at them, so beautiful! Now Zara have already released their A/W range – what…?! I’m in no way ready for winter, however the floaty blouse fits into London Summer perfectly. I also love the black backpack – I’m having a thing with backpacks, they’re just so easy to carry and leave both my arms free. I seem to have aged back a few decades. So the flower crown from Rock and Rose, I want this so BAD! I think I’d wear it once and be totally over it but its incredibly pretty. My mind says no but the heart seems to be over-ruling this one.
I see my card across the room – I just have to get up. Trying to resist…not sure how long I can last. Whats your favourite item? It may help me to narrow it down to one/two items.
Late last night I found myself browsing the Mango website. Ever since my Barcelona trip I have been really loving Mango as a store and pretty much everything they have out at the moment but particularly the premium range. Which obviously is slightly more pricier than the rest of the store however I assume the quality of material would be a lot better. Also I am trying to build a more classic wardrobe at the moment, looking at the state of my clothes choices through-out the last few years I seem to have brought a lot of in the moment trend pieces that aren’t in style right now. If I were to get everything on my wish-list I would set myself back just over £300 ouch. So whilst I patiently wait for a sale or some from of discount code I thought I’d share some of the pieces I have my eyes on. The sandals in particular. I had a similar pair a few years back from ALDO and I was absolutely obsessed with them so these are definitely on my ‘to-get’ list. The navy culotte style jumpsuit is such a timeless piece and the spaghetti straps just add a touch of elegance. Mango are really impressing me with their collection at the moment. I also wish I was a bit better at this whole wish-list presentation thing…
