Am I allowed to wear a band tee?

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

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.

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.

Body Confidence with Jewel Toned

Nobody is harder on us than ourselves whether this is in our jobs, our hobbies or the way we look, and for a serial yo-yo dieter I am the number one culprit for being hard on myself when it comes to my body. I recently discovered Jewel Toned a body positive shapewear brand that is not only amazing but mega comfortable.

What I really love about this brand is how this shapewear, which of course is usually classed as underwear, can become stunning outerwear, meaning that as women, we can make our own rules. I am wearing the Major Mini Dress in Red My Mind and oh my is this dress good, it nips you in just where you might need a little help (especially when you can’t keep your hands off Haribo). I love to style a fitted item with a more flowing oversized piece, so I thought this floral kimono was a perfect combination.

I can’t count the amount of times I have gone shopping for a plain black strappy body, have I ever been successful in purchasing one I actually like, never! Until this little beauty came along, the Rocking Bodysuit is perfect, I’m not sure how I survived without it! The support this little body offers is honestly amazing.

As with the red dress I like to wear a fitted item with a more baggy oversized piece, which is why I chose these Zara wide leg striped trousers. Just to let you guys know I have both the dress and the body in a size small (I am a UK size 8/10) and the fit is just right. Who said that shapewear can’t be sexy! Really excited for my next purchase from Jewel Toned they have the most perfect black lace bralet on offer.
