Oh another blazer you say?? Yes just yes, honestly I love them so much, they are so versatile, I love how you can wear them to the office mega smart, then with a crop top and relaxed linen trousers for the weekend. This striped blazer from Shein was an absolute bargain at only £23, and its really light and summery which I love.
One of my favourite ways to wear a blazer is with a crop top, this is because I love pairing something that is known as quite a smart item of clothing, with something so casual. Also you can’t beat a pair of linen trousers, I don’t think so! Especially for the crazy hot summer we have been having in the UK. Its been so amazing to just put on such a comfy, breezy pair of trousers, when the weather is sweltering outside!!

I am so happy that wide leg denim is in this season, for me its way more flattering than skinny jeans, and I love how good it looks with a crop top. These Topshop lace-up versions did sell out but they are back stock now so grab them while you can!
I am wearing these lace-up beauts with my old faithful black suede slides which go with pretty much everything. Although it might just be me but I really struggle to walk far in slides, I’m constantly sliding out of them (no pun intended!).
Finally to the most comfy stretchy crop top EVER! Oh and its £9, what more could you need in a top! Really excited to where these jeans when it gets a little cooler with ankle boots and a over-sized jumper.

I know this is just a cropped white t-shirt but I absolutely love it! The twist section at the front of the just makes it for me. I am also really into the smart blazer look with a more casual outfit, and for me this look is perfect.
Lets just appreciate these gorgeous high-waisted jeans from Topshop, I actually have them in a black too, I love them so much! They kind of fit like the old style mom jeans, but with more of a wide leg fit, for me its so much more flattering. Then the checked blazer, this one I bought from Bershka, and I am pretty sure it has sold out, but there are so many on the high street at the minute I will link an option below.
And to the red boots! Have you ever seen something so lovely! I actually have so much serious love for these beautiful creatures. I mean patent red boots with a ring detail! How fabulous!

Since I was about 14 years old I have been in love with Topshop, the small town that I grew up in actually had a small Topshop which was amazing! Hence why all the money I got from my Saturday job, went straight into the pocket of Philip Green. Over the years my love for this high-street giant has not changed.
I love the fact that I know that I can go into Topshop, and find something that I love without any problems, or really any effort! This outfit is entirely Topshop, and I think its my favourite so far this year. I absolutely adore tie front tops and wide leg cropped jeans are at the top of my wish-list at the minute (they also do this pair in black, which I know I pretty much HAVE to purchase).
Plus these jeans are the perfect level of high-waisted for me, I love a really high pair, as it makes it so much easier to wear with crop tops, and these are perfect. Lastly my little Whistles bargain bag, its the tiniest bag in the world, but for a night out is the perfect size to hold your phone & little essentials.

Black trousers for summer?? Are you mad?? Not mad, you guys just haven’t tried THESE black trousers. If you have been reading my blog lately you’ll know about my current love for UK brand Lucy & Yak of which are by far the coolest brand I have found lately.
I’ve been desperate for pair of black summer trousers for a while now, but they are usually all so tight and hot. However I have finally found this gorgeous black high-waisted pair they have a mega elasticised waist which makes them possibly the most comfortable trousers have ever owned. Plus they look so cute with a little summer floral crop top, like this one from Topshop.
The top was an absolute Topshop bargain at at only £16, along with these cream mules from H&M and my Gucci Marmont. Plus how cute are these little beach huts! We went down to Whitstable for the day and it is such a beautiful place.

In my last post I introduced you guys to the brand I am currently obsessed with Lucy & Yak who offer handmade streetwear and festival clothing. Everyone knows that I am obsessed with pink, like absolutely crazy pink (I think thats what makes me sad about eventually leaving summer fashion behind, no more pink!). I’m also really into the paper-bag trouser trend we are seeing this summer, however what normally puts me off is the paper-bag section is too big and ruffled. However these pink cord versions are actually perfect.
Also I’m not going to lie guys the waistband is so stretchy and comfortable, perfect when you ate a large dominos to yourself (every weekend in my case). I love how versatile they are too, I’m excited to wear them with a black lace-up side body that I have from Topshop. Oh and also the quality is insane, they are so well made and the cord is beautiful, plus such a bargain at £25.00.
I am wearing these pink babies with a really old black crop top (definitely won’t be available, but I will link you guys and alternative below) my new platform Stan Smiths and the Gucci Marmont. Not to forget my little gold heart necklace (I literally wear it with everything from Cinco.

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!

So I have these Topshop trousers in various different colours and they are 100% the most comfortable trousers that I own. They are literally so stretchy, which is perfect for the hot weather we are having here in the UK at the minute. I have them in a size 8 and they are great, I know I am going to get a crazy amount of wear out of them.
I know I’ve spoken about shirred tops before but I honestly love them so much! This one from Pull & Bear via ASOS actually has so much support in it which really means you don’t need to wear a bra, which is great because I hate strapless bras!!
Lastly to accessories, its my fav’s of the summer the Givenchy slides and the Gucci Marmont bag, both of which are going to be making me very happy for a long time to come. They are totally worth investing in, and I’m sure I love them a little more every-time I wear them.

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……

I feel like I must work for Zara at the minute! It’s the only place I seem to be shopping, their spring/summer items are just so good! This jacket jumped out at me as soon as I walked into the store. It has the most beautiful embroidery down the sleeves, I have no idea the embroidery is supposed to be, a bird..elephant, who knows, it’s beautiful anyway.
This jacket has everything you could ever want in a jacket, tassels, embellishments, it is not understated or quiet. But who wants understated and quiet, certainly not me, and not in the spring. Spring is time for colours and floral’s and frills (I’m in a VERY positive mood today, can you tell? Lol). Due to everything going on in this jacket, it does of course mean that the rest of the outfit needs to be quieter and definitely more understated. The top is an old favorite from River Island and it really has served me well over the years, to me a black crop top is a wardrobe staple.
The trousers again are a total find and I am in love with them, they are from Zara (of course) and were a mere £12.99! Of course you can kind of see why, there is no zip and they are almost like ribbed legging material, the good thing about is that they are crazy comfortable. I love the frill on the bottom too, spring and summer is all about frills, and I can’t get enough of them.
