Stan Smiths & Denim Skirts

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Clearly a classic combo is trainers and a denim skirt. Lets start with the skirt, I find it really hard to find denim skirts to fit me, as I have a slightly larger bottom (a big booty is a good thing) but it does mean that I struggle with the classic fit of a denim skirt. This one has more of an aline style and its perfect for us ladies with more junk in out trunk (lol).

Then of course to the classic off the shoulder blouse and this one from Shein has been such a staple in my wardrobe. I saw one of my fav bloggers wearing a similar combo of a black denim skirt, white off the shoulder shirt & white trainers and knew I had to try it. Also the addition of the Gucci belt, which pretty much looks great with every outfit.

To the bright white beaut’s on my feet, the Stan Smiths, there are the platform version and they are so freaking cool. I am a girl who loves to wear a heel, so I often shy away from wearing trainers as they are so flat and often so unflattering on the legs. However due to the platform on this version, they really don’t feel like that, plus I bought them in the recent summer sales for a reduced price…billy bonus.

Khaki Green High-Waisted Trousers

I absolutely love Mango as a high-street store although I often forget about it, I may not have bought from Mango for months, and a gorgeous blogger that I follow on Instagram may alert me to something that I fall in love with. It was the same for these khaki high-waisted trousers, they are just such amazing quality, and I think they look so much more expensive than they actually are (plus they were in the sale…win).

Due to the fact that they are so high-waisted they really do elongate the legs, which is surely a good thing for anyone! The white vest top is also from Mango, in fact I’ve only just realised that I’ve spent all summer without a white vest top…mental!

Lastly the most perfect black leather court shoes from Topshop, that are so comfy and I wear them for pretty much everything, work, nights out, even weekend shopping because they are so comfortable.

Why I’ll always be a Topshop Girl

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Since I was about 14 years old I have been in love with Topshop, the small town that I grew up in actually had a small Topshop which was amazing! Hence why all the money I got from my Saturday job, went straight into the pocket of Philip Green. Over the years my love for this high-street giant has not changed.

I love the fact that I know that I can go into Topshop, and find something that I love without any problems, or really any effort! This outfit is entirely Topshop, and I think its my favourite so far this year. I absolutely adore tie front tops and wide leg cropped jeans are at the top of my wish-list at the minute (they also do this pair in black, which I know I pretty much HAVE to purchase).

Plus these jeans are the perfect level of high-waisted for me, I love a really high pair, as it makes it so much easier to wear with crop tops, and these are perfect. Lastly my little Whistles bargain bag, its the tiniest bag in the world, but for a night out is the perfect size to hold your phone & little essentials.

The worlds most comfy Topshop trousers

So I have these Topshop trousers in various different colours and they are 100% the most comfortable trousers that I own. They are literally so stretchy, which is perfect for the hot weather we are having here in the UK at the minute. I have them in a size 8 and they are great, I know I am going to get a crazy amount of wear out of them.

I know I’ve spoken about shirred tops before but I honestly love them so much! This one from Pull & Bear via ASOS actually has so much support in it which really means you don’t need to wear a bra, which is great because I hate strapless bras!!

Lastly to accessories, its my fav’s of the summer the Givenchy slides and the Gucci Marmont bag, both of which are going to be making me very happy for a long time to come. They are totally worth investing in, and I’m sure I love them a little more every-time I wear them.

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……

Fashion’s Feminist Revolution

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

There are two major things I am in love with at the minute, slogan t-shirts and of course pro-women slogan t-shirts. As a women I think it is so important to come together to support each other, whether we have been friends for years, or have never met. I wouldn’t say I am technically I feminist, but I love what this t-shirt represents, and for me that is strong women from all around the world, helping and supporting each other.

Then we have this shirt of dreams, pencil skirts are 100% me, I am a more curvy girl and they are perfect for my body shape. Although I do advocate dressing for your shape, I think it is more important to dress in what makes you happy and makes you feel good, and this skirt really does that for me. I love the almost 80’s style of the skirt with the big white buttons down the front. Plus I am crazy into slogan tee’s and dressy skirts at the minute, this is why this look is perfect for me.

Lastly we have these studded beauts, I’m not always a fan of ankle straps on my legs, but these are actually really flattering. The heel size is not too big which makes them great to wear on an everyday basis, plus they were really affordable (link down below), the perfect shoe!
