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.

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!
