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!!

Topshop Cut-Out Bodies & Lace-Up Jeans

So let me talk about this body, its possibly the coolest thing ever, when I first bought it, it wasn’t clear on the site that there was actually silver rings holding the sides together, but oh man was I happy when I saw this little detail.

I’ll forever be a Topshop girl at heart and how fab are these lace-up jamie jeans, not only are they my favourite style of Topshop jeans but this version has lace-up sides…..actually lace-up sides (calm down Grace). So you guys are aware I am wearing the body in a size 8 and the jeans in a 10, and they are perfect.

Of course accessorised with all my fav’s, my Givenchy sides, Gucci belt and Gucci bag, all of which are going to be with me until I am old and grey 🙂

The Zara Playsuit That Looks Like a Dress

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

From first look you can be forgiven for thinking that this playsuit is indeed a dress, but actually it has little shorts under the top layer. This is actually completely necessary as the top layer is really very short. I love that Zara have taken this style of dress/playsuit and made it their own, I actually haven’t seen this style of playsuit in any other high street store.

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

The embroidery at the top of this playsuit is so cute, and it is actually very well made, considering that for a whole outfit it will only cost you £29.99! I also love the lace-up deal on the back, such a cute little detail, which can always be expected from a Zara piece. Really excited to wear this playsuit right into summer and also on my holiday to America later this year. To let you guys know I am a UK size 8/10, I have this in a small and it is perfect.

Last but not least my little silver Topshop sandals, they are such a staple item for me, and unfortunately sold out now as I bought them in the sale a while back I will link similar shoes down below). I actually love a metallic sandal for spring summer for something a little more unexpected.
