Bag: Market [Buy online here]

Hey! So today I am taking references from the sixties in a kind of twiggy inspired top from the Chelsea Girl collection at River Island. It is not online at the moment so I couldn’t link it but it may be still found in store. The black and white checked look is really effective and I kept to an all monochrome look by wearing it with a simple black skater skirt, black tassled bag and my metallic silver platform sandals. I really like some of the pieces in River Island’s Chelsea Girl collection, it is mainly inspired by vintage looks and also offers lots of bright colours and prints. I have a Chelsea Girl dress to show you guys next week so keep an eye out for that! It is bank holiday everyone! So excited! Do let me know what you guys are getting up to! Follow me on Instagram to keep up with style updates and also what I get up to! Have a nice day!

Hi guys! Today I am trying out the bardot trend. I am completely obsessed with bardot tops and dresses at the moment, a big trend for ss14! There is just something so feminine and girly about the cut, showing off your shoulders. You can shop for bardot pieces in most high street stores now with different colours and prints! I will be shopping for more very soon! My black bardot top from River Island also comes in [white] and also a more cropped version with a sweetheart neckline and shorter sleeves. Click [here] to take a look! I teamed it simply with some baggy fit, light wash jeans (any jeans would look great) and my super cute new heels from Matalan. These cost me just £15 and they have lots of other cute styles too! Bargain! Todays look is nice and simple to achieve and a really affordable outfit.

Dress: Chiara Fashion

Shoes: New Look [Alternative Here]

Sunglasses: Romwe

Morning y’all! Today’s look is kind of chirpy! I was super chuffed to receive this wonderful dress from Chiara Fashion, a trendy and affordable online retailer that I have featured plenty of times! They are definitely a go-to website for fairly cheap and trendy pieces. I love this dress so much, the print and colour is really pretty and perfect for this time of year. The fit is really great, nice and fitted around the torso and skims the hips into a nice floaty skirt which comes to just the right length to feel comfortable. I love the white collar and matched my white footwear with it. I can’t get enough of white shoes for this spring and summer. For a little bit of fun I added my wacky pink framed, rounded sunglasses from Romwe. These are a little bit ‘out there’ but I think they are really cool and quirky and certainly give this outfit a little  added interest. I hope you like my look!

Jumpsuit: Rare London

Blazer: New Look

Hi everyone! I hope everyone in the UK is making the most of the glorious sunshine we finally have at the minute! My Sunday style post has been long awaited but it was definitely worth the wait to get some beautiful sun in the shots. I am wearing the most amazing limited edition jumpsuit that I received from Rare London.  It is a strapless all-in-one piece in cream and what I love most about it is the wide fit leg. It has a really 70′s feel to it which is a trend that we can see emerge for summer 2014; I love wide legged trousers at the moment! There was no point in linking my shoes because you can’t really see them as the trousers fell to floor length, if you are taller than me then this may not be the case but I thought it bought another 70′s sort of feature to the look. I decided to go for simple neutral styling with my white blazer from New Look also to keep to a tailored look outfit and I think the outcome was really chic. I added a pop of red with my lippy and some chunky gold rings for a little bit of extra detail to the look. Rare London has some amazing pieces so definitely have a little browse!

Jacket: River Island

Top: Topshop [Alternative]

Jeans: River Island

Shoes: Primark

Socks: Primark

Hi guys! Happy hump day! Here is a mid-week style post for you all. I am very happy to feature my very bright and very groovy jacket! It is a denim jacket with a very summery lemon print, fruit prints are everywhere now and a huge trend for spring summer 2014. I am also wearing my light denim mom jeans also from River Island and a plain little crop top. However another exciting new addition to my wardrobe which is featured in todays post are….of course….. the jelly shoes. Now I saw these emerge late summer last year and didn’t really know how I felt about them but when I saw them in Primark the other day for just £6 I found it too hard a bargain to refuse. They are actually really good quality in comparison to the ones sold in other high street retailers and actually super comfortable. I wore them all day to work and it was completely fine! I do just want to say that I didn’t mean for my socks to be so high up in the images ha! I hope you like the look and are inspired to invest in some bold pieces this summer!

Jacket: Vintage

Shoes: River Island

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well and looking forward to Easter! Today I am styling up this beautifu

l dress I reviewed on my last fashion haul video which you can access [here]. I was meant to blog this ages ago but as I said before I unfortunately had to be absent from my blog due to settling into a new job but the good thing about this is that it has now gone in sale so if you want it you can get it for a bargain £12.50! Just click [here]. This dress is perfect for summer with the beautiful open, cross back detail and a nice floaty fit. For a warmer option try layering it over a white collared shirt as this looks great too!

Fashion Union are a really affordable and quirky retailer where you can shop the latest trends. I highly recommend having a browse at their clothes and shoes for some great finds. I teamed the dress with my pretty black vintage jacket which I picked up at a charity shop for just £2, I felt the black would balance out the neon pink to make it more wearable. I then carried through the silver detailing on the jacket to my metallic silver platform shoes with cleated soles which are my favourite purchase of the moment! I hope you like my outfit and I hope you all have a great week, keep your eyes peeled for my next post!

Blazer: SugarHill Boutique

Top: New Look

Jeans: Topshop [Similar Here]

Shoes: River Island

Bag: River Island

I’m back guys! Sorry for the lack of blog posts over the last couple of weeks but as you know I am just settling into my new job at River Island head office and needed a bit of time to get stuck into that but I am now ready to carry on with my little blog! I thought I would kick off with my collaboration with SugarHill Boutique which I have been meaning to do for a while. I received this pretty special blazer from SugarHill Boutique and I am so pleased to finally style it on my blog. I have become a huge fan of blazers at the moment, they are perfect for this time of year when everyone is trying to keep the winter coats in the cupboard in exchange for lighter garments. I am also embracing lots of prints for spring summer 2014 as I think this year I am going to go all out with colour and design. If you follow me on INSTAGRAM then you will probably start seeing the crazy little purchases I make such as the lemon print denim jacket I recently got from River Island which I will be featuring soon. SugarHill Boutique are a great online retailer with fresh, unique takes on trends for SS14 on sale at the moment; my jacket did cost £69 but the quality was unquestionably good and a real great piece that I know I will be wearing a lot. I teamed my blazer simply with a lace trim crop top from New Look to give a spring summer twist to what would be a smart casual outfit. I wore a pair of skinny fit jeans from topshop in a light acid wash to welcome in lighter hues for the new season and also my new beautiful leather peep toe shoes with the block heel, I adore these shoes and they are so comfortable! Highly recommend! Lastly I added a light pastel pink clutch for a slight pop of colour. I hope you like this style, I would love to hear your feedback!
