One Pair Of Jeans in Three Ways With River Island

I was recently contacted by River Island to see if I could style one pair of their jeans in three ways and being the queen of jeans, how could I say no! I decided to up the challenge and style the jeans for three different occasions; casual, work and evening. For this styling challenge, I chose the Lori high waisted skinny jeans which are a washed black with a cropped fit and high waist to give more petite girls like me a chance to look taller and the denim is really soft so its easy to move around in them. I’ve also kept my bag and shoes the same because nothing beats patent loafers and a slouchy suede number (thats under £40, by the way..). Everything shown in this post cost under £260 combined so its an affordable way to make three outfits easily! JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it…

Things To Consider Before Going Travelling.

You’ve probably worked out by now that I’ve become a bit of a travel bug. I’ve gone from being content with one holiday a year to wanting to live on beaches, experiencing new cultures whenever theres an opportunity. You’ve probably worked out by now that I’ve become a bit of a travel bug. I’ve gone from being content with one holiday a year to wanting to live on beaches all year around, experiencing new cultures whenever theres an opportunity. Whilst lying on Bournemouth beach with Char a few weeks ago, we came up with a little plan for starting to travel which I thought was worth sharing because I’m already in a dream bubble where the world is my oyster and need to get back to reality for a while to make it all work.Travel BuddyFor me, the most important thing when I travel is making sure that I’ve got…

Advice For Keeping Stylish At Work.

Workwear can be tricky at the best of times so as a new starter it can be difficult to determine the kind of attire that is acceptable. Since I left university there has been a part of me that longed to get into a creative office environment so that I could rock my workwear style and finally I’m able to in my new job, so its time I shared my tips on keeping stylish at work..My main piece of advice would be to dress smarter than you think you should. The first few days are when you can see what others wear and there is nothing worse than turning up more casual than everyone else. I’m lucky enough to be able to dress in my everyday style which is much more relaxed than tailoring and suits and my main work outfits include jeans with smarter tops, but some days I prefer to…

THE SOUNDTRACK TO MY SUMMER.

Despite being lucky enough to be heading back to MedSailors in a few weeks, I love having the option of driving down to a British beach on the weekends and soaking up the sunshine with friends and cocktails to make some new memories before adulthood really begins. One of my summer essentials is definitely a portable speaker, providing me with endless dance parties and Sunday chills so there is always a background noise. The Libratone One Style is a newbie of mine which allows me to bluetooth Spotify from my phone for high quality sound so there is no faffing with downloads. The speaker comes in three colours (black, grey and turquoise) and features a soft rubber bumper with a hand loop to make it portable, lasting for 12 hours between charging which is ideal if you’re away over night. The Libratone One Style might not be the smallest of…

Annika Nail Polishes.

Neutral and muted nail polishes are pretty much all that I own at the moment. There is something elegant and classic about having your nails painted in toned which compliment rather than brighten your nails, and we all know that I’m a sucker for all white. Don’t get me wrong, I love a bright pink manicure as much as the next girl, but if its a shade that I want for everyday then nude is what I choose. Annika nail polishes are a recent discovery of mine, sitting under the brand Edge and launching recently. The Annika collection features 30 shades including nudes, brights and everything in between so there is something for any occasion that you feel needs a little colour. If I’m honest, the colour on my nails changes weekly but the nail polishes are only £3.50 which means I can stock up on various shades without spending…

Finding Your Staple Handbag.

JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content. Most people like to throw on whatever they find first when running errands and I’m definitely an exception to that.. kind of. I normally try and do my makeup so I feel slightly put together or just add a pair of sunglasses (partly to hide my face, partly to look cool). My throw on outfit will always be a white tee, black jeans and trainers which are more often than not my Roches, which are still clean white after months of wear. But this post doesn’t need to focus on an outfit that I pretty much live in, when the bag on my arm is the easiest slouch that I own and my everyday staple handbag. Radley contacted me a while ago and asked if I’d like to test out one of their bags and with the…

Wearing The Bardot Trend.

Striped Bardot Playsuit: Missguided Strapped Leather Sandals: Emu Australia Small Bag: New Look Whether it makes you happy that I’m heading back to regular content or not, my holiday pictures are over for this trip. I’m sad to be saying goodbye to the best trip ever but also privileged that I can head back again so soon and return to the beautiful Greek islands on 2nd September for even more good times with friends.  The bardot style of this playsuit is perfect for summer evenings when the sun is just going down and still giving your shoulders the chance to tan (too much in my case). I just think that off the shoulder clothing is so feminine and flatters those of us that aren’t so blessed in the boob area.. drawing attention towards your collarbones instead. As always, heres a list of my favourite bardot playsuits to save you browsing the internet..…

How To Have A Social Media Detox On Holiday.

In a world that is constantly switched on its hard to leave social media alone to enjoy yourself – especially when you want to instagram every second of your amazing holiday. As a blogger it can be tough to fully pull away from your phone and relax while still uploading regularly but I came up with a pretty good solution to that.

Ermioni Evenings.

If it was possible to mourn over a holiday, then I’d say its a pretty good indication of how I feel about my MedSailors trip. I’ve thought about nothing else and had to seriously refrain from taking over my instagram account with endless pictures from that week.  Brogan and I went exploring for these pictures and found cute stairways and a view from the marina which looks almost like a green screen. Admittedly, we got a little carried away but this is what happens when you put two bloggers together on a gorgeous island with a fancy camera. This dress was a suitcase favourite, easily being a day or evening dress throughout the holiday. I fell in love with the bell sleeves and crochet panels because they made styling and accessorising so simple that I just added a small duffle bag and some easy sandals.

Confidence In Swimwear: The High Waisted Bikini.

After speaking to friends, its become clear that most of us girls dislike our lower stomachs and muffin tops. I always find that high waisted clothes make me look and feel slimmer and now that high waisted bikinis are a trend, its easier to cover up and look good. As soon as I book a summer holiday, my first thought is swimwear with my browser history turning into a beach-worthy list of bikinis and cover ups. Normally this routine takes months of trying different shapes and styles to find the one that doesn’t make me look bigger, but this year was the first time that my shape hasn’t bothered me. I’ve realised that its okay not to have boobs, or for a little fluff to be over my abs and I should be able to have fun with friends and strut around feeling gorgeous. Of course, having a gym routine…

Back Streets of Athens.

Athens is a city that I regularly travel through but have never really explored. I could tell you the route to the marina and back but the city itself is always a mystery. Brogan and I arrived a day before setting off with MedSailors and took advantage of our time to explore the city a little, starting with Acropolis. Athens is actually a beautifully rustic city, the buildings are all so different and this one has the perfect soft grey metal work which is why it became a backdrop – its all about the building choices for an outfit post amiright!? You will be pleased to know that I ditched my usual high waisted jeans for very different almost identical high waisted shorts because of the Greek sunshine, realising that walking around. Denim shorts are perfect for holidays in the city because they’re comfortable and go with almost everything. Despite the change of…
