I know you guys have probably seen these trousers before, but ohhhhhh they have a matching top! Topshop are so good at this, they suck you in with the bottom half and then go in with the top half. I love how when you wear them together it looks like jumpsuit.
My favourite part is definitely the top I love the wrap over style and the exaggerated sleeves. Plus its all so stretchy, I think I go on about stretch way more than I should when I talk about clothes, but who doesn’t love to be able to eat the worlds biggest burger in comfort…lol.
My love for these slip on satin shoes from Ego goes on, they are so comfy and it doesn’t matter how many times you get caught in the rain with them, they don’t seem to get ruined! Lets not ignore the Gucci Marmont, its a regular, by why wouldn’t it be!

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.

Clearly a classic combo is trainers and a denim skirt. Lets start with the skirt, I find it really hard to find denim skirts to fit me, as I have a slightly larger bottom (a big booty is a good thing) but it does mean that I struggle with the classic fit of a denim skirt. This one has more of an aline style and its perfect for us ladies with more junk in out trunk (lol).
Then of course to the classic off the shoulder blouse and this one from Shein has been such a staple in my wardrobe. I saw one of my fav bloggers wearing a similar combo of a black denim skirt, white off the shoulder shirt & white trainers and knew I had to try it. Also the addition of the Gucci belt, which pretty much looks great with every outfit.
To the bright white beaut’s on my feet, the Stan Smiths, there are the platform version and they are so freaking cool. I am a girl who loves to wear a heel, so I often shy away from wearing trainers as they are so flat and often so unflattering on the legs. However due to the platform on this version, they really don’t feel like that, plus I bought them in the recent summer sales for a reduced price…billy bonus.

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.

When you attempt to dress like a highlighter and it works!! In all seriousness I am loving all of the print and colour clashing that we are seeing this season, reds and blues, greens and blues, who cares it works! I saw one of my favourite fashion bloggers wearing a combo similar to this and just had to try it. The skirt was probably the bargain of the year, a whole £6 in the New Look sale, this make me happy as it was exactly what I was looking for. I love the wrap around detail and the fit of the skirt, it’s the perfect red skirt for me.
If you don’t own a version of this ‘mensy’ style Topshop shirt then you need one, I have it in two colours, this striped blue version and also a lighter blue. They go with everything, and when I say everything I mean everything! I love how oversized they are, they also look really great worn smart, if your job requires you to be smart of course. For reference I have this in a size 8 and it is perfect, so don’t be scared to size down.
Finally to the accessories, these are the shoes of the season for me, these studded beauts from Topshop, I know, you’ve seen them before, but I hope you love them as much as I do. Now (drum roll) I am very excited to introduce you to my little Gucci Marmont! My wonderful fiance bought me this handbag of dreams in Paris, and wow is it beautiful. My only criticism is that it’s too small for an umbrella, if you live in the UK you know what I am saying!!

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 🙂

I’m going to start with these trousers, who wouldn’t! They are red and fabulous! I actually have the same trousers in blue pinstripe, when Topshop bought them out earlier in the year. Then I saw them in red and I was hooked! The great thing about this pair is the price, they are only £25, which is really on the cheaper side for Topshop, not that I am going to complain! They are a slightly stretchy classic slim fit trouser, and I have them in a size 8 which fits fine, they are exactly what I wanted, well done Topshop.
Now, I have got to speak about my fan girl antics for Jhene Aiko, I love her, I’m not going to lie. Big statement, but she is definitely my favourite current hip hop/R&B female artist. My boyfriend knew how much I loved her, and bless him bought this from her official merchandise site, which is so crazy cute, he’s the best. I absolutely love a slogan t-shirt at the minute, and I love this even more because, if you know, you know…lol.
What outfit would be complete without the accessories? Certainly not this one, two of my absolute fav’s are these slip on black bow mules from Ego, and of course my Gucci belt. I’ve said it before but these shoes are crazy comfy and go with pretty much anything, absolutely loving Ego at the minute, an affordable shoes retailer that offer really cool styles.
