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.

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.

There are two very important observations about this picture, yes that is an incredibly cute white kitten, and girl you need to get some sun on your pale legs!!! Had to get those two important things out, now to the most GORGEOUS playsuit from Romwe, this navy beaut is so flattering on.
As you guys know by now I love an off the shoulder detail, so this style of jumpsuit is absolutely perfect for me. I also love the lace detailing around the hem and the arms, and also the tassels at the waist, come on, who doesn’t love a tassel!
I genuinely think that navy blue is just one of those colours that looks amazing on everyone, and this is a lovely shade for me, even when my pasty pins have not seen the sun for ages! Oh also this playsuit is less than £13.00….did I forget to mention that 🙂 I am of course wearing with my trusty cream bargain mules from H&M.

Black trousers for summer?? Are you mad?? Not mad, you guys just haven’t tried THESE black trousers. If you have been reading my blog lately you’ll know about my current love for UK brand Lucy & Yak of which are by far the coolest brand I have found lately.
I’ve been desperate for pair of black summer trousers for a while now, but they are usually all so tight and hot. However I have finally found this gorgeous black high-waisted pair they have a mega elasticised waist which makes them possibly the most comfortable trousers have ever owned. Plus they look so cute with a little summer floral crop top, like this one from Topshop.
The top was an absolute Topshop bargain at at only £16, along with these cream mules from H&M and my Gucci Marmont. Plus how cute are these little beach huts! We went down to Whitstable for the day and it is such a beautiful place.

In my last post I introduced you guys to the brand I am currently obsessed with Lucy & Yak who offer handmade streetwear and festival clothing. Everyone knows that I am obsessed with pink, like absolutely crazy pink (I think thats what makes me sad about eventually leaving summer fashion behind, no more pink!). I’m also really into the paper-bag trouser trend we are seeing this summer, however what normally puts me off is the paper-bag section is too big and ruffled. However these pink cord versions are actually perfect.
Also I’m not going to lie guys the waistband is so stretchy and comfortable, perfect when you ate a large dominos to yourself (every weekend in my case). I love how versatile they are too, I’m excited to wear them with a black lace-up side body that I have from Topshop. Oh and also the quality is insane, they are so well made and the cord is beautiful, plus such a bargain at £25.00.
I am wearing these pink babies with a really old black crop top (definitely won’t be available, but I will link you guys and alternative below) my new platform Stan Smiths and the Gucci Marmont. Not to forget my little gold heart necklace (I literally wear it with everything from Cinco.

So I discovered Lucy & Yak by chance on the shopping/selling app depop and was instantly obsessed with their brand. Number one, everything is handmade, in the UK, I mean we all do really want to know where out clothes have come from, and where better than here in the UK. Number two, they design their items to create curves on slim body types and room for those of us already blessed with curves. I mean come on, isn’t that just freaking cool!
Number three, these handmade black cord dungarees are only £30, plus I love how you can tie the straps. This makes these dungarees suitable for a few different sizes (for reference they are one size, and I am a size 8/10) even my beautiful yummy Mummy’s who want to still feel cool while pregnant.
I absolutely love the fit, I wore them all day in the sun, and because they are loose fitting it was like a dream! Oh also, they do these beauties in pink…..100% next on my list. I am wearing the dungarees with a yellow shirred off the shoulder crop top, and of course my Givenchy slides, which of course look good with everything!

Let me introduce the floral backless maxi dress you’ve been needing for all of your wedding invitations this year! Which actually (I think) is one of the hardest events to dress for! You need to be appropriate, but you don’t want something completely boring, so here we are ladies, thus is the one <3.
I think what I love the most about this dress is how flattering it is (oh and that its only £15.00, that I definitely love that) it nips you in just in the right places. Plus its that good material (you guys know what I’m saying) not that bad material that just clings, this dress gives you a nice warm hug (I have no idea what I’m on about tonight loves, its been a long week, lol).
Oh and look a that back (just look at it) its a work of art, plus I have no idea how (must be the placement of the straps, but it is so supportive that you really don’t miss wearing a bra at all. As you guys probably know, Shein is quite small in sizes (from standard UK sizes) and I have this in a medium, which for a 8/10 is perfect.

I saw this palm printed dress on Shein in the sale (at only £12.00!!) and I flipping love it. I wore it recently shopping with the girls and the weather was lovely, its the perfect dress to sit out in the sunshine with a couple of drinks.
What’s lovely about this dress is there is actually a slip attached inside, so it is not see-through at all, which as a white dress you really do not need! Its also a great length, not too short & not too long, well mainly not too short, I hate having a constantly pull the back of my dress down incase my booty is sticking out, haha!
I bought the boots I am wearing in the Topshop summer sale (has anyone noticed how good the summer sales have been this year? Certainly my bank account is aware of this!) I love how they have the cut-out section at the back and are almost like slingback ankle boots (which if you described these to me without seeing them, I’d be like ewwww no thanks!). I also love the nod towards the western style.

I love when you finally get into summer & you can pull out your denim jacket collection, now I am a serial seller of clothes & I still do have quite a large selection of denim jackets that I have not sold yet (still time lol). This rose embroidered version is from Shein and being the bargain hunter that I am it is only £24!!
The quality is amazing too, the embroidery is so well done. I have this in a size medium and I was actually a little surprised as it is way a more fitted that I expected, I expected it to be more oversized & boyfriend fitting, but actually I like it like this. The majority of the denim jackets that I already have are over-sized, so this is a little different.
I am actually wearing the jacket with one of my fiancees huge white tee’s tied at the front (nothing like realising you have a secondary wardrobe in the shape of your other half!) this beaut zip-up black denim skirt from Topshop and cream fabric mules from H&M (of with were £12.99 in the sale, madness!)

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.
