Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Inspired.

reena blouse // ingenue custom ripped jeans // new look flossys Yep, the blouse again. I’ve had so many compliments when I’ve worn this blouse and to be honest, its bright enough to be noticed. The colours are so vivid and it makes me feel really summer-y even though its getting a little colder recently. The blouse is in the sale on Ingenue at the moment and I would really advise picking it up as soon as possible! I’ve got mine in a size 10 which is a size bigger than normal but it fits loosely so easily could have gotten away with a 12. I’ve been wearing my flossys to death for the past few weeks and I’m so grateful to them for the opportunities that they have given me this month. If you didn’t know, I had a street style photoshoot with them the other day which I…

Printed Trousers Styling.

black cami // new look printed trousers // ebay patent boots // primark As much as I love these trousers, they are going to a charity shop tomorrow. I love the print and the colours but they static to my legs far too much which annoys me and makes them look a little less perfect as I thought they were. They also don’t have many styling options. Rant over. I am still on my quest to try and re-love everything in my wardrobe. Anything that I still don’t like after attempting to style and wear? Straight to the charity shop! Moving house is the push that was needed to clear out the ridiculous amount of clothes that I own.

New York Baseball T-shirt and Leather Skirt.

dodger glasses // london retro new york baseball tshirt // divadames  leather look wrap skirt // neon rose lace up heeled boots // new look I’d be the first to admit that I couldn’t stand basketball and baseball shirts a few months ago. It was partly to do with the fact that everyone was wearing them and there wasn’t much choice, but this one got me – maybe its my new monochrome addiction? I quite like that its so oversized and can be worn as a top or dress and it only costs £7 which is the cheapest that I’ve seen for this type of tshirt. Its so comfortable and easy to style too! 9 days. I really cannot wait to get out of this house and into my new one. I’m one of those people that could move house once a year and always be okay with it –…

Green Babydoll Dress.

vegas volt, mac | smock dress, wholesalers+ | elephant 2 chunky heels, new look+ This dress really reminds me of Megan (I miss you little pea) from Thumbellina Lillie – its the kind of style that she wears so well! I have to admit, whilst looking for the style most similar to this to link, every single one I could picture Megan wearing. She is pretty much the queen of the smock and you need to check out her blog if you haven’t already! This dress came from a wholesale website earlier this year but I can’t remember the name at all. I remember it cost £15 but that isn’t very useful. I love the style though, the lace hem fits in really nicely with the floral print which is the same creamy colour. Green isn’t the usual kind of colour to go for so it makes a cute change to the other…

Layering Bralets For Everyday.

festival specs // prêt a portobello beaded collar shirt // monki eyelash lace bralet // celeb look air max essential 90 // nike via very.co.uk Firstly let me just praise these sunglasses. I’ve never come across inter-changeable lenses before and these definitely kill it. Pret-a-portobello sell these for only £25 and they come with 6 different coloured lenses (grey, brown, yellow, pink, blue, green) so you can switch them up depending on your current mood or outfit. Obviously because of the pastel pink bralet in this outfit, I chose the pink ones which I think look perfectly fitting. They also have total UV protection so they double up as sunglasses and not just a fashion accessory. Aside from the sunglasses, this outfit is quite similar to one posted last week which featured my Triangl bikini instead – but the rest of the look is versatile so why not add a…

Dork Vest DIY.

dork crop // custom, primark ribbed high waist trousers // asos converse // asos This top is one that used to belong to my best friend Char, but I claimed it at a clothes swap party and decided to crop it and give it some new life. These tops were quite overdone last year and they did become a little bit ‘everywhere’ but I always find that clothes become more fashionable once everyone stops wearing them. Like tartan will probably look better this autumn because it isn’t being overdone (she says). This time next week I will be moving into my new house and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m fully aware that I keep going on about it but the boxes all over my university bedroom are a constant reminder every time I’m back there to go to work! The de-cluttering bin bag total is now at 15, which…

Motel Rocks, Bleached Cold Shoulder Dress.

glasses // london retro savannah cold shoulder dress // motel rocks socks // house of holland quilted contrast boots // truffle This outfit makes me feel slightly Jenny Humphrey – yes I’ve been watching far too much Gossip Girl. There is something about the all black, long socks and heels which makes for the Manhattan streets (although minus designer). This marble effect dress is the perfect length for me as it comes long enough to cover me up but short enough to not drown me (small people problems). Dresses of this style are always so flattering on the legs because of how they hang – heels making it even more so. I’ve been really good at scheduling posts recently and making sure that my blog is always up to date. I also feel like the outfits have been improved – which I hope you’ll agree with? For some reason there…

Jack Wills Patterned Dress.

nail polish // seaside, barry m dress // jack wills socks // topshop chunky white heels This dress was given to me at Christmas and like most things that I have been posting lately, it sat in my wardrobe unworn. The only reason was because its a bit too long to suit me until I shortened it. I am an absolute sucker for the skater style as bodycon isn’t my thing – so this shape seemed fitting. The print is also gorgeous and colourful enough to work with warmer or colder seasons making it very versatile.

Colourful Vintage Stripes.

vest // vintage jeans // leigh, topshop free runs 5.0 // nike Plain and simple but I had to somehow fit these trainers into a post. My boyfriend treated me to two pairs of free runs for my birthday and these are by far my favourites. My Grandma and Auntie gave me the top in a massive bundle a couple of years ago as they had a lot of clothes that they no longer wanted but knew I would love – safe to say I got lots! Its only 11 days until my new uni house now so expect a little room tour to come to my blog at some point. I’ve thrown away a lot of home decor and bedding, etc, so it will look quite different to before. To be honest, the two previous ones that I have done both look very different anyway!

The Silk Pyjama Shirt.

ootd, s tortoise glasses // firmoo + baroque shirt // topshop (old) ripped jeans // new look chunky boots // truffl This shirt was a present last Christmas and it hasn’t really had much wear. As gorgeous as it is, there isn’t many styling options so it is collecting dust – sadly because its so pretty. I decided to style it simply with black heels, black ripped jeans and some cute Harry Potter style glasses. Ripped jeans are my favourite for simplicity with style – they always add a new edge even though they are just black jeans. I did actually just buy another silk shirt from Monki which is a little more pyjama like – cute.

Leather Skirt and Gingham Top.

lipstick // make up rev gingham crop // new look leather wrap skirt // neon rose patent boots // primark Gingham. Another trend that has been overdone by bloggers but still remains a staple in most stores for the moment – following through to Autumn/Winter too. I’m probably the last person to accept gingham into my heart considering that I only own this crop and a shirt, but I’m welcoming it more each day. Gingham is quite a simple print so it makes for easy styling and adds a little sumthin’ sumthin’ to outfits. I chose to style my crop with some doc dupes from Primark and this leather skirt because I thought that a grunged up look would work more for today than making it girly. I always dress quite same-y so why not mix it up a bit..
