Pink Velvet Top and Lace-up Jeans in Paris

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Totally in love with pink velvet at the minute and this top from ASOS is so pretty. The most perfect shade of pink velvet ever! I love how the straps are different, with one that drapes down and another that does the actual job of a strap! This does of course require the need for a strapless bra, which is not always my favourite item of clothing, but worth it to wear this beaut. What you also have to realise is this top was only £16! An absolute bargain!Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Oh and the lace-up Topshop Jamie jeans, if only Topshop could make the Jamie jeans better than they already are, oh wait they did! I mean come on, lace-up Jamie jeans, what more could you want! I love how they show just a little bit of skin, nothing too crazy, but enough to make them that little bit different to your standard black jeans.Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

 

Then we have the classic trench, this one from Topshop is actually perfect, it’s oversized in length and fit and I love it. It is also perfect for the Spring months when the weather is a little warmer in the UK. Finally the classic black loafer, these versions are from ASOS, I realise that these have probably seen better days, and I could do with buying a new pair, but you know when you bed a pair of shoes in just right……

The Romwe wrap top & silver boots

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

First of all lets talk about these silver boots, I picked them up this week from Zara in the summer sale for £15.99, yes thats a whole £15.99, what an absolute bargain. Although I do slightly feel like a spaceman they are totally worth it.

Then we have this beaut of a wrap around top of dreams, from Romwe, I genuinely think it is my favourite top in my summer wardrobe, the quality is amazing. It’s also really flattering, as it nips you in at the waist, I also love the wide but short style of sleeve. This Topshop yellow denim skirt that I have been loving for the past couple of months, because it pretty much goes with everything!

Finally the most perfect oversized denim boyfriend fit jacket from Romwe, it was actually a little too warm on this day for being able to properly utilise this jacket properly. I can’t wait to wear it with a little cut-off denim skirt that is the same colour blue and a slogan tee. It’s just a staple that no wardrobe should be without!

My love for gingham in the summer

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Yeh yeh, more gingham, but come on guys this one is a good’un, this jumpsuit from ASOS is like wearing a giant gingham clown suit, and it is kind of reminiscent of one. Honestly though this stretchy lovely jumpsuit is so comfortable as there are no zips (instantly you know there is going to be stretch for days).

My other current obsession is shirred everything, tops, dress…everything! I think that is what drew me to this jumpsuit to start with. Also lets not forget the wide legs which is honestly a style that is flattering on every body shape (even though as you girls know, I don’t believe dressing for your body shape, I think you should wear whatever hell you want, and dress for your style).

Finally we’ve got to talk these shoes, embroidered goodness, and even ties up the legs!!! What more is needed in a shoe! I loved the contrast of the gingham against the embroidery, pretty busy, but there is nothing wrong with that in my eyes. Then this straw bag from Zara, I hopeeeee that this beaut is still available when this post goes live because its the most perfect summer bag and only £19.99 which is insane.

An Orange Suit in Paris

IMG_4059

So this is the big engagement night suit, yes of course I was leaning toward a dress but I really wanted something completely different and this suit was that perfect thing for me. I love the a-line style of the skirt because it really is so flattering. I think that Topshop offer some of the best co-ords on the high-street at the minute (I have my eye on a white lace number), although they are more on the pricey side.

I wore this orange beaut with this sheet mesh top from ASOS, I think it may possibly be sold out now, but I will link something as similar as I can below. I think wearing the jacket covers you up quite a bit, so its ok to combine it with a bit of mesh, oh and of course a black lace bralet.

Lastly to my accessories, this little black clutch from Whistles, which honestly everyone should own, it is the most useful and gorgeous little clutch ever, and these Missguided strappy shoes, which I know I’ve worn on the blog before, but look now good they are :).

Primary Colour Clashing & The Gucci Marmont

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

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!!

Summer holiday planning with Shein

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

It’s a big Shein haul for you today guys, you know I love this brand and I have been thinking about my up and coming holiday to America for the last few months, so I thought why not start planning for it now!

I choose to purchase this button-up tie front dress and I absolutely love it, I love the tie front section, the buttons down the front and the midi length style (because girls, I know you know its either boobs or legs, ain’t nobody got time for both). I have this in a medium and its the most perfect comfy fit. I styled this dress with these lace-up sandals from Topshop, which weirdly twist as you walk…..meh they look good, even if your bare feet are on the actual floor 90% of the time!

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

The next thing I bought in my mini Shein haul is this stripped midi skirt, a really good dupe for a version I saw in Zara a couple of months ago. I will always be drawn to a midi skirt because I think they are just so easy to wear, no riding up, no potential butt cheeks falling out of the bottom! I know I always say how affordable Shein are, but just to remind you guys, this skirt was only £18.98…..

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

For me a classic combination (since I was about 12, is there an age limit on this sort of thing?!) is a midi skirt and a cropped top. This basic top is from New Look (and £3 in the sale!) and I love the 90’s style square neckline, plus a bit of blue on blue is always a winner in my eyes.

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Clearly I have gone for a blue theme here, and this was genuinely a subconscious thing, I obviously like blue a lot! You guys know that I also love embroidery, and this embroidered dress is me in dress form! I am a UK size 8/10 and this is a size medium, it fits perfectly. I love a smock style dress (mainly because I can eat more food than I probably should).

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

This dress is my version of effortless dressing, and I am so excited to see what else I can find on Shein, mainly lots of items to add to my ever growing collection of embroidery & blue 🙂
