I want to talk about what I’m wearing, but then I kind of don’t, because how cool is our new garden table & benches!! Its a vintage german beer table and benches & its flipping the best thing ever! Anyway back to the clothes! The best bargain silver boots in the world, they were £12 in the sale from Zara, £12!!!! I know they are no longer available but I will link below a similar pair (silver of course).
I also think the main star of the picture is clearly Ralph (who likes the new table as much as we do). I digress again! This floral shirred top from Zara is such a lovely summer top & goes with pretty much everything. I know I’ve said it before but I loved the shirred style tops that are everywhere this season.
If you’ve not tried the Topshop Jamie jeans then you need too, I think they are the best skinny jeans you can buy on the high street. They have just the right amount of stretch, and are the perfect level of high-waisted.

Topshop have released quite a few versions of this jacket and I love them all! I finally caved when I saw this colour, as I don’t have any jackets this style or this colour I knew I needed it in my life. I love the raw hem detail, I think it makes it look a little more edgy.
I love classic pieces that never go out of style, and these black skinny jeans and stripped cropped t-shirt are just that. Plus the combination of the classic backpack and a pair of black ankle boots.
Plus this vintage suede belt which which was £2.50 from a charity shop (forever a bargain hunter). I don’t think will ever get tired of looking in charity shops, because one day I just know I’ll find something Chanel :).

I love this wrap around shirt so flipping much, I don’t know what it is about a wrap around shirt but they are so flattering. I did originally buy this for work, but it’s a little too low cut.
I’ve wanted some gold layering necklaces for a while now and I love these gold chokers from ASOS, they look great with my Chino gold heart necklace (will link below as this brand is so cool).
To my most favourite £9 bargain pink trousers from New Look, they are perfect for night outs with crop tops, or great for work with a shirt, they are sold out now, but everyone needs a pink pair of trousers so I will link similar below. Lastly these sandals from Topshop are the most comfortable things ever.

I know you guys have probably seen these trousers before, but ohhhhhh they have a matching top! Topshop are so good at this, they suck you in with the bottom half and then go in with the top half. I love how when you wear them together it looks like jumpsuit.
My favourite part is definitely the top I love the wrap over style and the exaggerated sleeves. Plus its all so stretchy, I think I go on about stretch way more than I should when I talk about clothes, but who doesn’t love to be able to eat the worlds biggest burger in comfort…lol.
My love for these slip on satin shoes from Ego goes on, they are so comfy and it doesn’t matter how many times you get caught in the rain with them, they don’t seem to get ruined! Lets not ignore the Gucci Marmont, its a regular, by why wouldn’t it be!

I absolutely love a pair of pleated trousers, and this pink pair from Romwe are so good. They have the typical elasticated waist so are crazy comfortable. Romwe only make these trousers in one size, but they would fit UK sixes 6 to 12 depending on desired fit.
Not sure I need to say much about a good old slogan tee, and this one from Topshop has been a staple in my wardrobe for a while now. I love the contrast of the red lettering and the pink trousers.
Last but not least, the shoes, mannnnnnn these shoes are so cool. I mean platform espadrilles, hell yeh! Plus they are crazy comfortable. They are from Boohoo, but via ASOS, and between you and I, I think ASOS stock the best items available on Boohoo.

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.

If you guys have been reading my blog for a while you’ll have seen this little beaut in one of my wish-list posts. I love white broderie anglaise for the summer, and I think this white smock dress from Shein is perfect. What is so great about this dress is it lined from the waist down, so its not see-through at all.
The UK summers are not always the hottest, so I love pairing a summer dress with ankle boots. These boots are from Zara, and are kind of a sock material, which makes them so comfortable, they also have the coolest ring detail at the back. My bag is this little APC beaut, which I absolutely love.
Finally a close-up of this little dress which may I add is only £18 (Shein will forever be my fast fashion number one choice). I have been looking for the perfect pair of tassel earrings for what seems like ages, this red version from Topshop are actually amazing.

This dress is literally SO AMAZING, hence my capitalisation!! I mean come on, it is off the shoulder, button down and the most perfect red floral (which is my favourite type of floral). I also love the high/low style of the dress, so shorter at the front and longer at the back.
I am actually looking forward to wearing this red floral dress in slightly cooler weather with black chunky ankle boots and a black leather biker jacket, the perfect look for Autumn.
If you are new to my blog then you’ll know how much I love Shein, the quality of this dress is amazing for only £23, and they have such a huge choice on their site. When you are buying from Shein, just a couple of things to be aware of, the delivery can take up to a month (totally worth the wait) and the sizes are usually slightly smaller than normal UK sizes.

That is the question on many peoples lips…am I allowed to wear a band tee because it looks cool, not because I am really into the band? The answer to that from the die hard fans is probably no. But meh, its really does look cool, plus it was £6 in the Zara sale, and I do actually know who Kiss are, so actually the answer to my own question is yes, definitely :).
I love wearing a graphic/band tee with a more smart style of trousers, especially if they are wide leg, I think it is such a good contrast that just works every time. Plus how cute is the frill waistband on these Topshop striped trousers? Topshop pulls it out of the bag every time for me.
This is probably one of my favourite outfits for a long time, I am going to start a collection of graphic tees/band tees and wide leg trousers, such a perfect combo. Finally the most staple comfortable sandals in the world. They are from the cheaper range of shoes at Topshop, and although they are not leather, they are really nice quality & so comfortable, plus I love the big buckle details.

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.
