I actually full on copied one of my best friends when it comes to this outfit, it was such a copy that I am almost ashamed of it. She wore exactly the same things, but from completely different shops (if you know what I mean) I suppose the only clever thing here is I managed to pretty much recreate the same outfit, but found different items to do this.
I bought this little cropped band tee from Missguided, and I love how it has a distressed look to it. It wasn’t quite cropped enough for me, so I tied this little knot in the front & I think it works perfectly.
And of course these stripped wide leg gems from Zara, I love these, but I have one problem, they are not quite as long as I thought they would be, and I wanted to wear them with heels for work. But alas this is not to be, flats & and a band tee it is. Also if you haven’t noticed (how could you not) I wear this Gucci belt with literally everything, definitely my best buy of the year.

So let me talk about this body, its possibly the coolest thing ever, when I first bought it, it wasn’t clear on the site that there was actually silver rings holding the sides together, but oh man was I happy when I saw this little detail.
I’ll forever be a Topshop girl at heart and how fab are these lace-up jamie jeans, not only are they my favourite style of Topshop jeans but this version has lace-up sides…..actually lace-up sides (calm down Grace). So you guys are aware I am wearing the body in a size 8 and the jeans in a 10, and they are perfect.
Of course accessorised with all my fav’s, my Givenchy sides, Gucci belt and Gucci bag, all of which are going to be with me until I am old and grey 🙂

Nobody is harder on us than ourselves whether this is in our jobs, our hobbies or the way we look, and for a serial yo-yo dieter I am the number one culprit for being hard on myself when it comes to my body. I recently discovered Jewel Toned a body positive shapewear brand that is not only amazing but mega comfortable.
What I really love about this brand is how this shapewear, which of course is usually classed as underwear, can become stunning outerwear, meaning that as women, we can make our own rules. I am wearing the Major Mini Dress in Red My Mind and oh my is this dress good, it nips you in just where you might need a little help (especially when you can’t keep your hands off Haribo). I love to style a fitted item with a more flowing oversized piece, so I thought this floral kimono was a perfect combination.
I can’t count the amount of times I have gone shopping for a plain black strappy body, have I ever been successful in purchasing one I actually like, never! Until this little beauty came along, the Rocking Bodysuit is perfect, I’m not sure how I survived without it! The support this little body offers is honestly amazing.
As with the red dress I like to wear a fitted item with a more baggy oversized piece, which is why I chose these Zara wide leg striped trousers. Just to let you guys know I have both the dress and the body in a size small (I am a UK size 8/10) and the fit is just right. Who said that shapewear can’t be sexy! Really excited for my next purchase from Jewel Toned they have the most perfect black lace bralet on offer.

You guys know I love Shein, so I’ve put together my Shein summer wishlist, going to be snapping up some of these items myself, which I’m really excited to show you, hope you enjoy.

2. Foliage Print Cut-Out Maxi Dress
3. Asymmetric Shoulder Gingham Blouse
4. Pom Pom Flare Hem Checkered Trousers
From first look you can be forgiven for thinking that this playsuit is indeed a dress, but actually it has little shorts under the top layer. This is actually completely necessary as the top layer is really very short. I love that Zara have taken this style of dress/playsuit and made it their own, I actually haven’t seen this style of playsuit in any other high street store.
The embroidery at the top of this playsuit is so cute, and it is actually very well made, considering that for a whole outfit it will only cost you £29.99! I also love the lace-up deal on the back, such a cute little detail, which can always be expected from a Zara piece. Really excited to wear this playsuit right into summer and also on my holiday to America later this year. To let you guys know I am a UK size 8/10, I have this in a small and it is perfect.
Last but not least my little silver Topshop sandals, they are such a staple item for me, and unfortunately sold out now as I bought them in the sale a while back I will link similar shoes down below). I actually love a metallic sandal for spring summer for something a little more unexpected.

First of all we’ve got to talk about this gorgeous jewellery from my babes at Elnique lets start with the layered choker of dreams, I love the longer section, and the choker that almost looks like sequins (it is actually metal, which is far more sturdy than sequins) also the little tiny star, anything with stars is a win for me. Can we also give it up for these statement earrings, they are so me its almost funny. Then this little tiny moon and star ring (we have a theme here) which may I add is 925, ain’t no green fingers around here! All three pieces are linked below lovelies, check them out, both affordable & unique.
So the engagement you say? If some of my readers do not know I actually got engaged to my boyfriend Ryan at the beginning of May. I know I’ve been quiet with the details, but here we are (drum roll) my gorgeous boyfriend (fiance now, wow) took me to Paris for the weekend and it couldn’t have been more perfect. We stayed in a penthouse apartment right on the Champs-Elysees, over looking the Eiffel Tower (which at night has a light show every hour, which is crazy beautiful). We sat with the balcony door open while our private chef bought us a three course dinner (even as I write about it now, it still seems to go to be true) of course I am not silly, I knew it was coming, and man was I excited.
After the chef left he asked me to marry him (on one knee), I said of course I will. Then it was just me, him and the Eiffel Tower, we cried and hugged and rang our parents. I honestly thank my lucky stars that I found him (and at the ripe old age of 30) and I have him in my life. I never really knew what it meant when people said you should be with someone who makes you a better person, but now I know. Soppy, but true, so here’s to the future and growing old with my man.
