Embroidered Jacket & Double Denim

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

I am OBSESSED with this jacket, like seriously its gorgeous, it is going to be my staple denim jacket right through the spring/summer this year. This little beauty is from Missguided, it does keep selling out, but the guys at Missguided don’t miss a trick and keep re-stocking, so if you don’t see it on the link below keep checking because they will re-stock.

I wanted this jacket in a more over-sized style so opted for a size 10, and it fits exactly as I wanted it to. I am wearing it with a blue denim mini skirt from Topshop, although it is not exactly the same tone of denim as the jacket, I still love this double denim look. I am looking out for a denim skirt that is a slightly lighter blue, so they look more like a matching set.

Finally I am wearing my denim items with a very staple t-shirt from COS, a plain black leather waist belt from ASOS, my APC bag and of course my Doc Martens, which I could not live without, I love how they dress down any outfit. Really looking forward to wearing them with a little floral summer and black ankle socks, the perfect look for me.

Red Trousers And My Love For Jhene Aiko

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

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.

The Most Perfect Embroidered Skirt

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Ok so this skirt, I am crazy obsessed, the embroidery, the fit, everything. When I choose this from the Romwe site I was really excited to receive it, but its actually so much nicer in real life. I was really presently surprised to see that the embroidery is on the front and the back, so it is pretty from all angles.

It is important to know that the sizes on Romwe are a lot smaller than the usual small/medium/large sizes. I have this in a medium, which I would say fits like a UK 8, so it’s good to know that when buying from this site. This skirt is definitely in my list of most favourite items at the minute, and I can’t wait to buy from Romwe again.

I’m actually wearing this beaut of a skirt with my boyfriend’s white tee from Cos, it’s in a size medium, and its exactly the look I was going for. My white t-shirt would have looked too fitted, I love an oversized top half with a more fitted skirt. The sandals are from Missguided and I  flipping love them, they were a slightly risky purchase for me as I a not always a fan of ankle straps (not normally flattering on bigger legs) however these seem to have the opposite affect and are extremely flattering. Anyway back to the skirt..go buy it, you’ll love it 🙂

Love for One Shoulder Dresses & Stripes

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Zara had me at one shoulder and stripes, this dress is just the most perfect throw on dress. Whether you are going for a night out, or whether it is just a day of shopping. It can be dressed up or dressed down, which for me is the sign of a perfect dress. I always struggle with buying pieces that are too dressy, that I know I can’t adapt for daytime. I always try to adopt the 3 ways rule, which is where you only buy something if you can think about wearing it three different ways.

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Of course I am going to tell you my three ways!! The first one is of course as above, styled for a night out with heels, my Gucci belt and clutch, the perfect effortless night time look for me. The second way in the day with material tie belt that the dress came with and either my Givenchy or furry black slides and a satchel bag, total different look, same dress!

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Final look would be the dress layered over the top of a long sleeved fitted red top, I guess this needs to be seen to be believed! Don’t you worry I will be adding this to my Instagram soon, plus I copied this idea from a gorgeous blogger I have been following for years so I know it looks good….lol.

Pink Denim Pinafores and White Ruffles

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

I genuinely think this pink pinafore is one of my most favourite recent purchases, if not of all time! This maybe due to my very obvious pink obsession that I seem to have at the minute. Honestly though, pink denim, in the form of a pinafore!!! Urban Outfitters have pulled this out of the bag for me! I have this in a size small and it’s perfect, can’t wait to wear it more casual; with a white tee and trainers.

I wore this pinafore in Italy with my white ruffle blouse Zara. I have this in a size small, I found the sizing quite weird in this, it’s fine when you have it on, but it’s not easy getting it on at all, I’ve nearly ripped it on a few occasions! However I cannot tell you how much I have worn this blouse, It especially looks great under pinafores or dungarees. Ironing this is not fun though. Nope not fun at all….Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Finally my Topshop silver sandals, unfortunately they are now sold out as I bought them in the sale just after Christmas, at a mere £15! I’ve actually not worn them until now, but they seem to be firmly on my feet at the minute. They are also crazy comfortable which is perfect for a heel.

A Romantic Dress for a Romantic Place

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

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.

Wide Leg Dungarees and Crop Tops

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Dungarees and crop tops….it sounds like I have been transported back to the days of being carefree and 14 years old! Here I am wearing them years later! I think this dungaree style from ASOS is slightly more grown up, well it feels like that to me! I absolutely love a dungaree, I think they are so flattering and I love pairing them with a crop top. It actually means you can wear a crop without flashing too much skin!

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

These dungarees are from ASOS, and were an absolute steal in the sale at £12. The fit if I am honest is not great on me, however I love them so much that I think at some point I will get them tailored, to shorten the straps and take the waist in, so they are more fitted around the waist. Wide leg trousers and jeans are so on trend for spring which I love, they are so flattering and elongate the legs.

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

The white off the shoulder Missguided top is one of my favourites at the minute, I love the off the shoulder style and the long sleeves. I will always be a Missguided girl, such affordable items, what’s not to love! Finally my white ASOS slingbacks I have worn so much, they are really flattering on the leg and especially look great what wide legged jeans.
