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!

I actually full on copied one of my best friends when it comes to this outfit, it was such a copy that I am almost ashamed of it. She wore exactly the same things, but from completely different shops (if you know what I mean) I suppose the only clever thing here is I managed to pretty much recreate the same outfit, but found different items to do this.
I bought this little cropped band tee from Missguided, and I love how it has a distressed look to it. It wasn’t quite cropped enough for me, so I tied this little knot in the front & I think it works perfectly.
And of course these stripped wide leg gems from Zara, I love these, but I have one problem, they are not quite as long as I thought they would be, and I wanted to wear them with heels for work. But alas this is not to be, flats & and a band tee it is. Also if you haven’t noticed (how could you not) I wear this Gucci belt with literally everything, definitely my best buy of the year.

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.

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.
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.

I feel like I must work for Zara at the minute! It’s the only place I seem to be shopping, their spring/summer items are just so good! This jacket jumped out at me as soon as I walked into the store. It has the most beautiful embroidery down the sleeves, I have no idea the embroidery is supposed to be, a bird..elephant, who knows, it’s beautiful anyway.
This jacket has everything you could ever want in a jacket, tassels, embellishments, it is not understated or quiet. But who wants understated and quiet, certainly not me, and not in the spring. Spring is time for colours and floral’s and frills (I’m in a VERY positive mood today, can you tell? Lol). Due to everything going on in this jacket, it does of course mean that the rest of the outfit needs to be quieter and definitely more understated. The top is an old favorite from River Island and it really has served me well over the years, to me a black crop top is a wardrobe staple.
The trousers again are a total find and I am in love with them, they are from Zara (of course) and were a mere £12.99! Of course you can kind of see why, there is no zip and they are almost like ribbed legging material, the good thing about is that they are crazy comfortable. I love the frill on the bottom too, spring and summer is all about frills, and I can’t get enough of them.
