My favourite checked trousers and my quest for the perfect capsule wardrobe

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

These trousers are soooooo flipping good, the perfect checked trousers for this season. Of course, they are from my fast fashion favs Shein, and if you look on my Instagram you’ll see the matching blazer, a co-ord made in heaven. I love dressing down a statement pair of trousers with a graphic tee, like this Aaliyah tee from Urban Outfitters, and a good pair of Vans. Also as we move into winter there is nothing better than a staple black faux fur coat.

I don’t know about you babes but I feel like I’ve been on the quest for the most perfect capsule wardrobe for years. The thing is I forget about this quest on a regular basis and carry on buying the same low quality seasonal fashion pieces I have been buying for years! The thing is, I have read so much about how to create a capsule wardrobe, but everyone says you need this amount of clothes, that amount blah blah! What I want is a section of clothes in my wardrobe that are amazing quality, fit amazingly and go with absolutely everything I own, plus last me for years. This I do not have!

So what’s my plan? A hugeeeee clear out, what doesn’t give me joy? What fits weirdly or annoys me every time I wear it? Then I am going to give myself two weeks to see how it feels living with less clothes, and what I feel like I’m really missing. Do I have too many bottoms and not enough tops? Do I need more work shoes? More weekend shoes? I think you also need to make sure you are being truthful will yourself in regard to your wardrobe and your lifestyle. For example, I work in an office where the dress code is smart casual, but mainly smart. Therefore, it’s important that I have a wardrobe where at least 70% of it can work for the office as being as being dressed up/dressed down for the weekend. So the quest is on babes, clear out first then I’ll let you know my next steps, wish me look!!

The perfect checked blazer & 6 things I do when I feel down

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

First to the world’s most perfect checked blazer!! I wrote in an Instagram post early last week, explaining that I think the checked blazer is the piece of the season, and I really think that’s true. This double breasted checked blazer from Shein is so perfect, the fit is amazing, its over-sized enough just to have the perfect dressed down feel, plus it’s an absolute bargain. If you guys haven’t realised yet I am completely obsessed with these red flared trousers from H&M, they literally go with anything, I also love the flared trousers & trainers look.

So babes, this is what I do when I am feeling a bit crappy, when I want to feel a little better about myself and relax. 1. Organise some shiz, just take 30 minutes/an hour to organise what you need too, lunch for next day/pack your gym bag etc, etc, I know it’s boring but it honestly will mean that you are able to relax so much more knowing you’ve sorted all of the necessary things out. 2. Have a bath, I love a bath, honestly, I love it, is there anything more relaxing than sitting in lovely hot, lovely smelling water? I don’t think so! What I would now like to say is that I read a book while in said bath. I actually don’t….I catch-up on Instagram, my message groups etc, if I get behind this is actually something that stresses me out, so I like to take this time to catch up and get some inspiration (which is always fun).

I trim, pluck and dye them myself and it’s just a little thing that I can do for myself, that makes me feel and look a little better. 4. Ring my Mum, just to hear my lovely Mum speak about her day and what she has been up to, always make me feel so much better. Sometimes we just need to reconnect with family and to have a good old catch-up, because really what’s more important that our family. 5. Watch a film with my fiancé, and have a foot rub, I luckily have the most amazing fiancé who spends probably way too much time rubbing my feet (he’s braver than I am) and I love just snuggling up on the sofa with him and watching a good film & completely turning off. 6. Have an early night, I am a complete advocate on getting as much sleep as possible, and I know if I have a really good sleep the next day I’ll feel amazing.

Off The Shoulder Shirt & My Shopping Habit

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

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 :).

Stripped Trousers & Body Confidence

Processed with VSCO with j2 preset

If you guys have not got into the stripped trouser trend then don’t worry lovelies there is still time! I love the sightly cropped element of these stripped versions from Shein, as I love wide leg trousers paired with trainers. This nude/pink hoody is crazy comfortable and  love it with these type of trousers. This outfit is the perfect weekend comfy outfit for me, pretty much one step up from PJs!

I decided recently that I would love my readers to really get to know me, and for me to share some person things about me and my life. I think that as women we can learn from each other, by reading about our experiences and knowing that we can relate, and most of that time knowing that we are not crazy! So what I’d like to talk to you guys about today is body confidence, and what that means. For years I’ve had a constant battle with keeping my weight stable. I am by no means saying that I am overweight (I know thats not the case) but its always frustrated me that my weight can fluctuate so rapidly and I can start to very easily feel out of control.

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Right now is definitely one of those times, I call it my happy weight, because really for the first time in my life I’m very staple, the most perfect fiancee ever and my dream job. I often find it hard to really focus on too many things at a time and it is important that I focus on my relationship & family, my job & my blogging. However I am determined to get back to the gym and start looking after myself. Not because I want to lose weight, but because I finally want it to be staple and to feel confident about my body! I hope lots of you can relate to this lovelies, and I know that weight is not important, but how we feel about ourselves really really is ❤

Blue Chambray Jumpsuit

First of all, let me tell you how crazy comfortable this jumpsuit is, it has an elasticated section around the waist, this means it will fit varying different sizes. It comes with a fabric belt in the same material, but I like it with my Gucci belt, to make it look a little different.

I have no idea why but this halterneck style of top seems to be so flattering on the arms/shoulder areas but it definitely is, which is always a bonus. I think this colour is also universally flattering on most skin tones.

I am wearing this super flattering jumpsuit with some black platform sandals from Boohoo via ASOS. They are so crazy comfortable, this is of course down to the platform, and there not technically a heel.
