If this is not this seasons off the shoulder shirt of dreams then I don’t know what is, I am absolutely in love with it! Oh and whats more is its £14, yes you heard that right, 14 whole pounds & its honestly such good quality. The ruffles on the arms are such a cute feature & I love how its looks tied at the front. I’m loving stripes on stripes this season, especially when it comes to pairing pretty much everything with wide leg trousers!
Do I have a shopping habit? Absolutely I do, I genuinely use fashion blogging as an excuse to buy more clothes than is really necessary, and I am pretty sure I will continue to do this for as long as blog. Is that a good thing to admit? Probably not! But that feeling when you know you have something really cool coming in the post, I absolutely love!
What I would like to start doing is buying more quality items, that I will continue to keep wearing and styling for years to come. Items along the lines of the classic black double breasted blazer & staple black tailored trousers, or a really quality pair of black ankle boots. Although I am in love with fast fashion and the excitement that a new season brings, it is definitely important to have items in your wardrobe that you just can’t live without. Now to write a list of my dream items :).
Off the shoulder striped shirt – Shein
Wide leg striped trousers – Bershka Via ASOS
Black ankle boots – Zara
This dress is literally SO AMAZING, hence my capitalisation!! I mean come on, it is off the shoulder, button down and the most perfect red floral (which is my favourite type of floral). I also love the high/low style of the dress, so shorter at the front and longer at the back.
I am actually looking forward to wearing this red floral dress in slightly cooler weather with black chunky ankle boots and a black leather biker jacket, the perfect look for Autumn.
If you are new to my blog then you’ll know how much I love Shein, the quality of this dress is amazing for only £23, and they have such a huge choice on their site. When you are buying from Shein, just a couple of things to be aware of, the delivery can take up to a month (totally worth the wait) and the sizes are usually slightly smaller than normal UK sizes.

There are two very important observations about this picture, yes that is an incredibly cute white kitten, and girl you need to get some sun on your pale legs!!! Had to get those two important things out, now to the most GORGEOUS playsuit from Romwe, this navy beaut is so flattering on.
As you guys know by now I love an off the shoulder detail, so this style of jumpsuit is absolutely perfect for me. I also love the lace detailing around the hem and the arms, and also the tassels at the waist, come on, who doesn’t love a tassel!
I genuinely think that navy blue is just one of those colours that looks amazing on everyone, and this is a lovely shade for me, even when my pasty pins have not seen the sun for ages! Oh also this playsuit is less than £13.00….did I forget to mention that 🙂 I am of course wearing with my trusty cream bargain mules from H&M.

Yeh yeh I know, this two piece is AMAZING, from a brand I have only just discovered Narlaka and if there was ever a piece that is totally me then this is it! I am usually scared of white shorts (big bum syndrome, it’s not actually an illness, it’s just have a big bum, lol) and I will shy away from anything white on my bottom half, especially shorts, but honestly guys these shorts are so flattering! They have made me re-think how I feel about shorts in general, dramatic I know, but true! I also love the tassels and the drawstring detail, for me Narlaka has really nailed this piece.
We’ve got to talk about the top, this is certainly going to be a stable part of my summer wardrobe, it would look gorgeous with wide leg trousers or a high-waisted embroidered skirt (my two bottom halves of choice at the minute). The lace detailing, the off the shoulder style, what more is there to love? You are definitely going to see me wearing this top on Instagram in lots of different ways, over the next couple of months.
Really happy I discovered Narlaka and currently have this gorgeous and staple black wrap dress which will see you right through the summer on my wish list, along with this beaut of a play-suit of which I am completely obsessed with the unusual print. Oh and did I mention this item’s are so crazy affordable, and you guys know I love a bargain.

Meet one of the most beautiful dresses I own, the ‘Tash’ dress from my babes at Blush Clothing Playhouse (linked down below) is seriously amazing. I love the off the shoulder details and also the floral print is so delicate, perfect for the spring season. I actually have a christening next month, and this is definitely going to be the dress that I will wear then.
Not only is this dress beautiful its so crazy comfortable, the neckline is elasticated and so is the waist, so you can have it as high or low as you like. I’m really excited about changing it up a little and taking off the belt it comes with and wearing it with my belt Gucci waist belt. Make sure you check out Blush Clothing Playhouse, they offer some really gorgeous pieces, and are such amazing people, plus the international shipping costs are mega low, which is always a bonus.
Lastly these Missguided strappy sandal beauts, I swear these are going to be my most worn dressed-up shoes. They are so comfy and so stylish, and go with pretty much everything, and they are £20, what a bargain.

So this blouse is an absolute dream, like seriously, wrap around, cropped, ruffles sleeves, its an absolute beauty. This blouse is from Shein (linked below) and I got it in a size medium, which for a UK size 8/10 is absolutely perfect. Just so you guys are aware, the sizes at Shein do come up slightly smaller than standard UK sizes, so always best to size-up. It is completely wrap around, with a long section that you can tie any way you like. I love this as you can style it differently, depending on how you are feeling that day!
I’ve tied this at the back as I like keeping the front of the blouse quite minimal, and not fussy. The quality is great too, which is amazing as the blouse is only around £20 UK prices that is crazy cheap! I’ve seen this style at a lot more money, at various different online stores, so this version is a complete bargain. I have styled this blouse with my ruffled/flared ribbed ‘mermaid’ (describes them perfectly) trousers from Topshop, which I know are going to be such a spring staple. They are so stretchy and comfy, and literally go with anything!
Finally we have these pink suede beauts from Topshop, I felt this outfit really needed a pop of colour and these mules are perfect. They are actually from Topshop last season, but I know they have released lots of similar styles, so will link down below. Can’t wait to style this blouse in so many different ways, and so excited to buy more items from Shein.

I like clothes a lot (yeah, yeah fashion blogger, we’d never have guessed). I believe you get dressed in the morning and decide who you want to be for that day. Some days I just want to wear my trainers, favourite gym leggings and the biggest hoody I can find, minimal make-up (never no make-up, are you crazy!) those are my mega casual days, but probably my favourite days of all. Yet other days I want to wear the dress I have been saving and my best make-up (yeah, I do have going-out make-up and work make-up, you should try it, it’s a real penny saver). What I am trying to say, is what you wear can and will boost your confidence, and make you feel like you are ready to tackle the world! So that’s my rationale as to why I MUST buy that very expensive handbag I have been wanting for the last few months…lol. On a serious this is why I want to blog, to show you guys a little of what I wear and who I am, and hopefully I’ll gain a little support along the way.
My Style – I am 30 years old (could lie, I’m not going to, that’s just sad) which means (obviously) I’m not 21 anymore, and I ain’t no model (sorry mum, I do know that’s not grammatically correct, it’s just for effect) so I hope my style can appeal to literally any women out there, who want a little inspiration, and when don’t we, my favourite pastime is reading the fashion blogs of the gorgeous gals I’ve been following for years. What you’ll see me in the most is dungarees (this is a new thing, but my god I love them!) monochrome & pastels, good vintage denim and the odd floral or two. Plus a little bit of streetwear (yeah I do wear a lot of men’s clothes, lol). Oh and lots of pictures with my yorkshire terrier Ralph, because he’s cute! Also my lovely boyfriend, because he is the clever techie one behind the scenes, who has made this happen, plus he’s pretty stylish (thank god)….. hope you enjoy 🙂
