I absolutely love a pair of pleated trousers, and this pink pair from Romwe are so good. They have the typical elasticated waist so are crazy comfortable. Romwe only make these trousers in one size, but they would fit UK sixes 6 to 12 depending on desired fit.
Not sure I need to say much about a good old slogan tee, and this one from Topshop has been a staple in my wardrobe for a while now. I love the contrast of the red lettering and the pink trousers.
Last but not least, the shoes, mannnnnnn these shoes are so cool. I mean platform espadrilles, hell yeh! Plus they are crazy comfortable. They are from Boohoo, but via ASOS, and between you and I, I think ASOS stock the best items available on Boohoo.

First of all, let me tell you how crazy comfortable this jumpsuit is, it has an elasticated section around the waist, this means it will fit varying different sizes. It comes with a fabric belt in the same material, but I like it with my Gucci belt, to make it look a little different.
I have no idea why but this halterneck style of top seems to be so flattering on the arms/shoulder areas but it definitely is, which is always a bonus. I think this colour is also universally flattering on most skin tones.
I am wearing this super flattering jumpsuit with some black platform sandals from Boohoo via ASOS. They are so crazy comfortable, this is of course down to the platform, and there not technically a heel.

So I discovered Lucy & Yak by chance on the shopping/selling app depop and was instantly obsessed with their brand. Number one, everything is handmade, in the UK, I mean we all do really want to know where out clothes have come from, and where better than here in the UK. Number two, they design their items to create curves on slim body types and room for those of us already blessed with curves. I mean come on, isn’t that just freaking cool!
Number three, these handmade black cord dungarees are only £30, plus I love how you can tie the straps. This makes these dungarees suitable for a few different sizes (for reference they are one size, and I am a size 8/10) even my beautiful yummy Mummy’s who want to still feel cool while pregnant.
I absolutely love the fit, I wore them all day in the sun, and because they are loose fitting it was like a dream! Oh also, they do these beauties in pink…..100% next on my list. I am wearing the dungarees with a yellow shirred off the shoulder crop top, and of course my Givenchy slides, which of course look good with everything!

Totally in love with pink velvet at the minute and this top from ASOS is so pretty. The most perfect shade of pink velvet ever! I love how the straps are different, with one that drapes down and another that does the actual job of a strap! This does of course require the need for a strapless bra, which is not always my favourite item of clothing, but worth it to wear this beaut. What you also have to realise is this top was only £16! An absolute bargain!
Oh and the lace-up Topshop Jamie jeans, if only Topshop could make the Jamie jeans better than they already are, oh wait they did! I mean come on, lace-up Jamie jeans, what more could you want! I love how they show just a little bit of skin, nothing too crazy, but enough to make them that little bit different to your standard black jeans.
Then we have the classic trench, this one from Topshop is actually perfect, it’s oversized in length and fit and I love it. It is also perfect for the Spring months when the weather is a little warmer in the UK. Finally the classic black loafer, these versions are from ASOS, I realise that these have probably seen better days, and I could do with buying a new pair, but you know when you bed a pair of shoes in just right……

Yeh yeh, more gingham, but come on guys this one is a good’un, this jumpsuit from ASOS is like wearing a giant gingham clown suit, and it is kind of reminiscent of one. Honestly though this stretchy lovely jumpsuit is so comfortable as there are no zips (instantly you know there is going to be stretch for days).
My other current obsession is shirred everything, tops, dress…everything! I think that is what drew me to this jumpsuit to start with. Also lets not forget the wide legs which is honestly a style that is flattering on every body shape (even though as you girls know, I don’t believe dressing for your body shape, I think you should wear whatever hell you want, and dress for your style).
Finally we’ve got to talk these shoes, embroidered goodness, and even ties up the legs!!! What more is needed in a shoe! I loved the contrast of the gingham against the embroidery, pretty busy, but there is nothing wrong with that in my eyes. Then this straw bag from Zara, I hopeeeee that this beaut is still available when this post goes live because its the most perfect summer bag and only £19.99 which is insane.

So this is the big engagement night suit, yes of course I was leaning toward a dress but I really wanted something completely different and this suit was that perfect thing for me. I love the a-line style of the skirt because it really is so flattering. I think that Topshop offer some of the best co-ords on the high-street at the minute (I have my eye on a white lace number), although they are more on the pricey side.
I wore this orange beaut with this sheet mesh top from ASOS, I think it may possibly be sold out now, but I will link something as similar as I can below. I think wearing the jacket covers you up quite a bit, so its ok to combine it with a bit of mesh, oh and of course a black lace bralet.
Lastly to my accessories, this little black clutch from Whistles, which honestly everyone should own, it is the most useful and gorgeous little clutch ever, and these Missguided strappy shoes, which I know I’ve worn on the blog before, but look now good they are :).

I have been waiting for what seems like months to wear this dress in the sunshine. Going to Italy on holiday meant that I could finally do this! Granted I could wear it with tights but I think it really wouldn’t have the same look and feel if I did that, so the wait was real! Dresses with ruffles…I know you know what I mean (lol), I literally cannot get enough.
This ruffle wrap around version is from Topshop, and is perfect for layering. Italy in March is beautiful, but it can be a little chilly in the morning and evening, so a sweater is definitely needed to keep out the cold. This version is from Zara and was an absolute bargain at £12.99, it often surprises me how much I have worn this staple little piece, but I now can’t imagine not having it as a go to item.
As blogged about in my last post we have the Givenchy slides, the most perfect slides in my opinion, I am pretty much obsessed with them! Lastly this cute little Kendall & Kylie backpack, it is the perfect side to fit in all of your essentials without it being too big or cumbersome.

Soooooo excited to start sharing my pictures that were taken on my most recent trip to Tuscany, Italy. We stayed in a town called Lucca, which is unbelievably beautiful, and seemingly undiscovered by too many tourists. Every street is beautiful, with a restaurant or boutique on every corner. Lucca is conveniently located between the Italian cities of Pisa and Florence, these pictures are taken during a beautiful day in Florence. We walked up to the top of the Boboli gardens when the view over Florence is seriously stunning.
I wore this gingham dress from Boohoo via ASOS, and it was perfect for a warm day in Italy. The quality of the dress is not the best I have even seen, but to say it only cost me £15 I think it is a bargain nonetheless. I wore it with this yellow cropped denim jacket from Topshop, it is actually part of a co-ord, a denim skirt is also available (of course I have this too..lol). Its great to throw over an outfit when the mornings and nights are colder.
What outfit is complete without the shoes and bag? These slides are my pride and joy (sad I know). I have seen these Givenchy slides online for the last couple of years, and this year I thought it was time to take the plunge. Although they were pricey I know that I will be wearing them for years to come, plus they are crazy comfortable!
