Holiday Party Wishlist //

Dress from Coast

The holidays are just around the corner and I’ve started to get in the swing of things by having a little browse online for some items that’ll look great together but that’ll stay stylish throughout the coming new year. Together, these pieces combine for an edgy but chic look, yet individually are staples, able to be combined with items I already have for a whole new look. With all those christmas parties coming up and then the new year we're all going to be needing a whole lot of sparkle!
What do you guys think of this look?

It’s Our Party We Can Do What We Want //

Heels - Boohoo
Necklace - H&M
Clutch - Primark

Okay how gorgeous is this crop!? So on trend and such a lovely colour combination. I'm such a big fan of tartan right now like i'm wanting everything to be tartan in my wardrobe. Really wanna get other crops in this style it's so comfy and can be worn in the day and in the night as well. Thought i'd go full out with the AW13 trend and do the tartan and leather. Apologies for the extremely creased skirt I realised way after! The leather skirt is from Oasis you guys would of seen it before from previous posts. It's one of my fav leather pieces! Thought i'd add some gold accesories to the look so went with this necklace along with a lot of rings. I'm loving the whole OTT rings look these days.
For some height I went with these curved heel beauties and put on some frilly socks to go with the look.

Hope you guys liked how I styled up the crop! How would you guys style it?

Kiss Me Hard Before You Go //

Necklace - New Look
Bomber - H&M
Jeans - H&M
Shoes - Matalan

Here's another uni OOTD which was quite the black on black ensemble. I went with my high waisted jeans from H&M alongside my off the shoulder crop top from Motel Rocks. I am actually a reall big fan of off the shoulder, I don't know what it is but it just really appeals to me. Always good to get a lil shoulder out here and there. Paired them with my go to Matalan shoes and this New Look necklace to compliment the silver accents on the shoes. This necklace as to be my joint fav alongside my Vero Moda. Statement necklaces are always a yes! Then to add a little colour to my life and protect me from the oh so cold weather, I put this gorgeous bomber on top. 

Hope you guys like the look!

And If Ever I'm Alone You'll Say..I'll Be Thinking About You //

Necklace - Primark
Dress - Miss Selfridge
Tights - Primark

So how gorgeous is this print? This little number is from Miss Selfridge! Well my sister actually got it from their sample sale so I don't actually know when it was available or when it's gonna be. I'm actually a serious fan of the baroque print and this literally ticked all my boxes. The dress is actually really flattering for my figure! It makes my waist look teeny weeny which I love and as well as that it hides my chubby arms really well! Being back at uni the junk food is on a overload so i'm thinking to purchase more of this style as it'll hide my growing belly. I paired it with my new pu gillet which I purchased from the New Look sale! It was only £11!! I know right!? What a bargain! The thing which I love is that its longline and as all of you know that is absolutely everywhere right now. Then to accessorise I threw on these neglected boots from eBay which have now gone down to £15 if anyones interested. Then to add a little more I put on my go to necklace from the one and only Primarni.

It's actually depresisng that I now have to wear tights! I feel like they kill every look and as well as that it reminds me that we're now in Winter whenever I'm reaching for them!

Hope you guys liked my look! It was an outfit of the day for uni! 
Hope you're all good!

Even If I Tried..Even If I Wanted To..

Crop Top - Topshop
Necklace - Vero Moda
Shoes - Matalan
Blazer - River Island

So guys I got influenced by everyone having a pair of mom jeans and decided to go buy myself a pair! After wearing them a few times they have become my favourite style. They're so flattering! They make my waist look so teenie weenie as well as give me some curves which I love. Pretty easy to style up as well, which is always a plus. I got mine from Miss Selfridge, I don't know what it was but I was seriously attracted to the wash of these. Since having them I've decided I might just purchase the black pair to which are in the sale or have £10 off so it's all too tempting. 

This was just casual uni outfit of the day. Went with a simple grey casual crop top from Topshop and my go to Matalan heels. As the longline blazers are so in right now I threw on my River Island blazer which was definitely a good purchase from last year. To make it a little more glitz I thought i'd add my fav Vero Moda necklace which really does do up an outfit.

How would you guys style mom jeans?

Been Around The World, Don't Speak The Language //

Coat - Missguided (old)
Jumper - Miss Selfridge 
Trousers - Oasis (old)
Necklace - Prirmark
Rings - Oasis (old)
Shoes - Matalan

Hey Hey Hey!!

I know it has been a while since an outfit post but like I said in my previous post moving back to uni and everything has literally taken up all my time! However I'm trying to get my day to day uni outfits up on here. Only thing is my whole background will be different now and as you can see the lighting in my room isn't amazing. So for my next post I will try and make sure the quality of the photos are better! 
The jumper in this outfit is actually a recent buy from the Miss Selfridge sale! Did anyone else go wild when they had the buy one get one free deal going on!? I went in to the store near me and literally couldn't resist. Came home with 2 new dresses a skirt and this cute cropped knit! The knit is actually a size 12 and me being a 8 it was a tad big. Which is exactly how I wanted it because I didn't want it to be as cropped as it would be and as well as that the sleeves are also so baggy and long on me! Thought i'd pair it with these Oasis pu trousers which I think I bought 2 years ago and are still in amazing condition minus the fact that they don't fit me as well as they used to! However I think that's because I have lost a little weight! Yay me!! 
To accesorise I went with this new buy from Primark around my neck which was only £4!! and a few rings and my gorge Matalan shoes which seem to be my new go to shoe. To save myself from the cold air outstide I threw on my coat from Missguided which really did the outfit justice! 
What are your opinions guys!?
Hope you're all well!

Monsoon AW13 Campaign

Hey guys!

I know it has been way too long since i've posted but what can I say being back at uni has literally taken up all of my time! I'm hoping to find the balance and be able to post more :) So I will be back with more OOTDs and hopefully videos! If there's any thing else you guys would like from me then just comment and let me know!!

This post is actually all about the Monsoon AW13 campaign! Have any of you guys seen it!? I thought it was super cute and quite informative on personal style. Before this I always thought of Monsoon as more of a evening wear kind of place, as in more dressy clothes. However seeing how the girls style it all up for work and seeing some of the cute knitwear pieces I definitely will be paying my nearest store a visit. I am more of a black on black person but recently I have found myself dipping into a little more colour and who doesn't like a gorgeous print here and there. You can actually see the video just below asI  thought I would share it with you guys!

There's also another little video by the girls at Monsoon that I thought i'd share too as I honestly thought it was the cutest thing. It's basically shows you so many different ways in wearing scarves. I, myself can't wait to try so many of them out! Especially the one where shes put the scarf in her hair! Thought it looked oh so cute! Also thought the video was perfect for AW13 as we'll be wearing scarves so much more now. Can't believe it's already so cold and gloomy!

What are your opinions guys? Find it as cute as I did?

If I Told You, That This Couldn't Get Better Baby //

Cardigan - Primark
Leggings - H&M
Heels - Jeffery Campbell

Just a quick simple outfit which to show off my new Jeffery Campbells! How beau are they right!? I finally own a pair. I don't think you know how excited I was when they arrived. The thing I love most is that I haven't seen anybody else with a pair like these so it makes them more unique in my eyes lol. Will show you guys a close up in a later post. I actually purchased them via which made them so much more affordable. I think they were around £60-£70 which is an absolute bargain in my eyes.Would definitely reccommend you guys to keep your eye on that site they have a Jeffery Campbell sale every few months. This time I was prepared and checked before they had all gone in my size. 

This is definitely the most covered up i've been in ages, the weather has taken a change and more of my AW is popping out. I finally don't feel like a retard walking around in a furry cardigan as now I actually need it and it's keeping me warm. You guys are probably getting tired of seeing it now but it's just my favourite piece at the moment. Thought i'd pair it with my new wrap blouse from Oasis which I really took a liking to! As all the other places like Topshop and Zara had just plain coloured wrap tops but this one I really like the black panel going along with the wrap. I feel as it dresses it up a lot more! To finish the look I just added my basic pu leggings from H&M which have lasted me surprisingly long! Then the fedora which I've actually been lusting over ages and finally bought one as I thought the Miss Selfridge version suited me a little better. Perfect to hide any bad hair day!

Hope you're all good guys!

Warehouse 90 Minute Delivery! //

Hey guys!!

Don't know if you guys know but Warehouse have recently introduced a new delivery option and it's basically called 90 minute delivery. As you can probably gather from the name it's basically a delivery within 90 minutes of ordering which I think is absolutely fantastic. Imagine ever being in anOH MY GOD I have nothing to wear tonight dilemma! That would literally sort me out perfectly. 

To introduce the service to everyone they have made a video which you can check out below! I actually thought the concept was so cool. They had a little competition where people were able to submit outfits for different purposes and from these 9 were chosen for the 9 different purposes. The video is about the day of girl who needed to change her outfit every 90 minutes according to what was happening in her life. I love how they had the whole 90 minute related situations to bring about the 90 minute delivery. 

After watching the video I seriously want so many things from Warehouse now! Seriously loved the outfit for the interview as well as the bus stop outfit. The interview outfit was so chic as well as trendy and made her look so professional. Especially compared to the previous baggy jumper scene. The detailing of the dress from the bust stop outfit just had me so drawn to it. I really just liked the necklace of dress, the white piping around the neckline gives such an edge to the dress. Really don't think piping is the right word to describe the detail but I can't think of anything else! Along with that I was also loving the accessories going along with them. That neon yellow necklace is so lush! Also thought the model for the video was perfect, she was so effortlessly gorgeous!! Oh and how could I forget to mention the outfit for the cocktail bar! That jumpsuit is a need in my life.
They really did choose the perfect outfits for each little purpose. Actually so impressed by the video! It can even use it as inspiration for my next few ootds! Or I could do posts regarding outfits for different situations/events! What do you guys think? Definitely think the video was a great way to promote the service as you can see how it works so easily.

What are your opinions guys? Really is such an amazing service right? Hope you like it as much as I do!!

We Don't Have To Worry About Nothing //

Dress - Oasis
Heels - Random Local Shop
Rings - Oasis
Cardi - Primark

So guys how gorgeous is this midi dress!? I especially love the back, the low v is just gorgeous. However as you can see I really do need to find a bra which will allow me to show it off a little better lol. The thing I love about midi dresses is that you can pin them up and make them minis. Leading them to look like two completely different dresses! Therefore increasing the wearability of the piece. Sadly this dress isn't actually available online but is in some stores! Its part of the wonderland collection if any of you like it. Thought i'd go for a pretty simple look to dress it up and put on a pair of wedges and a few rings. Thenn to casual it down add this furry cardi which literally hasn't left my shoulders in forever and a pair of punk looking low heels. What do you guys think of my day to night look?

You Take The Clothes Off My Back And I Let You //


Shirt - Miss Selfridge
Jumper - Topshop
Necklace - Vero Moda
Shoes - Matalan
Jacket - Topshop

Like I mentioned in the last post I am obsessed with this skirt!! Seriously my favourite piece of AW so far!! I cannot stop wearing it. They've even brought in a faux leather version which is ever so cute! This time I went for less of a simplistic look and more of a out there look with the trend of monochrome and neon. The old Topshop neon cropped knit and the Oasis skirt are what makes the outfit! Then to make it a little preppy I added the Miss S shirt underneath. To make more of a statement I added the Vero Moda necklace along with the Topshop Bomber. The necklace was quite a recent purchase and is also another piece I love! The shoes are my fav though as they were such a bargain at £10. The detailing of the belting is just so gorgeous. Matalan have a lot nice pairs of heels atm i recommend you check them out!

What are your thoughts guys?

Everybody Else Don't Mean A Thing //

Cardi - Primark
Heels - Office

Todays little outfit of the day features my absolute favourite new skirt from Oasis. Its leather and a wrap skirt and is absolutely gorgeous. Fits so well and cuts me at a flattering point! Love love love it! It's literally all i've been wearing since i've purchased. Along with these rings which were an absolute bargain at £3.99 or £4.99. H&M have became even more purse friendly with their jewellery section. I went in today and saw so many gorgeous statement necklaces. Paired the look with a go to cami from Topshop and these simple sandal heels from Office. To go on top my new Primani piece which seems to be going around the blogosphere. However everyone else seems to have the H&M version but this little baby was only £12. I can see myself wearing it all Winter! It was a little to hot for the surpisingly good weather we're having in England currently.

Just Hold On We're Going Home //

Leather Jacket - Warehouse
Rings - Oasis & Primark
Cuff - Vintage
Sunglasses - Asos

Okay it has been absolutely ages since i've last posted so I do sincerely apologise for that! However I had my uni exams and they obviously took priority and took over my life! Hopefully they've gone well and I shall be going back to uni in the next 4 weeks!!

Now to my outfit! I was kindly sent this playsuit by Warehouse and as you can see it's gorgeous! I was asked to choose anything I wanted and this piece caught my eye! I thought it was something which could be worn in the day as well as the evening. The yellow accents really drew me to it! The style is gorgeous too and fits me really well! The thing which I love about stores such as Warehouse and Oasis is that their quality really is amazing. With other brands sometimes the material isn't too thick and you can see my rolls of flab lol so I really don't mind paying a little bit more for better quality and fit! I decided to pair them with my metallic heels which are ever so comfy surprisingly! I bought a similar pair from Primark recently and was literally dying after a half hour. I went with silver jewellry to bring in the shoes. A oversized jacket was what I thought really brought the look together! I really do like wearing jackets on my shoulder now instead of putting my arms in. I have no idea why! Thank the lord the sun is back meaning I can finally bring my sunnies out again and these Asos ones are my fav! Love wearing them even though I do get a few weird looks!! 

I seem to be loving all my recent purchases! I seriously have no complaints minus the balance of my bank account!

Hope you're all well!
