I know, I know, it’s the middle of summer but my brain is already on AW14 and Clarks have just made this heat even more unbearable, I just want to wear these beautiful loafers every day! These are the latest addition to my shoe wardrobe and I am loving them so much. I’ve been after the perfect pair of black loafers for years and these have really hit the nail on the head. They’re chunky, without being overly Doc Marten about it, which isn’t my style and they’re boyish without looking like you’ve borrowed your dad’s shoes. They’re shiny and beautiful, sturdy and amazing quality. These are a surefire winner in my AW wardrobe, I just know it. I know they’ll look fab with trousers, jeans and also with little 60s style dresses and tights which is a favourite look of mine for the winter time. They also come in a tan leather and a patent green leather which are also gorgeous. Perfect, personified in loafers, that’s what these are. I just need to break them in.
The amazing ASOS sale is on again and I’m craving a midi skirt really badly. Here’s a few of my favourite from the sale at the moment. I’ve actually just bought the yellow Jacquard one! Hopefully I’ll be featuring it in an outfit post very soon!
It’s Friday. It’s Pay Day. This means that it’s shopping time, non?
Well the French Connection Sale is on and it’s full of lovely things and I wanted to share
some of the bits that I’ve had my eye on! Let me know what you think of my picks.
I’m definitely one for mentally bankrupting myself at least once a week, here’s my most recent wish list of goodies that I’m after for the coming months. If anyone’s used/reviewed any of these products then let me know if they’re any good!
First up are some beauty bits that I want to get my hands on for the coming sunshine. I read a review on Anna’s blog House of Bargain the other night about the Illamasqua Matte Veil Primer and it looks amazing, if anything’s going to control my shiny face, I want to get my hands on it. Her review was really good so go and check it out, it’s definitely convinced me that I want to buy it! Just waiting for another ASOS 25% off code to go wild on pretty much all of this stuff in this wish list! To go with the primer, I really want to try the NARS Sheer Matte foundation for slightly less coverage in the warmer months, I know loads of bloggers absolutely love the NARS Sheer Glow but I think the matte version will be better suited to my skin. Last but not least in the beauty wish list is the Bobbi Brown bronzer in Medium. I’ve wanted this for ages and I think I might treat myself soon!
Just like the boyfriend jeans, pool slides were one trend that I wasn’t 100% sure about. I still feel that loads of them look quite ugly and I really don’t get the Nike & Adidas rubber ones worn by women, they just don’t look good to me, but that’s my opinion! Then again, whilst on the lookout for some new summer sandals, I came across these little babies from Next, for £25, real leather, metallic and a more feminine version of the pool slides that every fashion blogger on the scene has been sporting! I really like these as they’re leather, not black and rubbery and they have a strap at the back to help keep them on! I’m rubbish at backless sandals, unless they’re flip-flops because my feet just won’t seem to grip onto them!
The weekend brought us sunshine and amazing music as Luke & I ventured over to Wollaton Park in Nottingham for a home-grown festival called No Tomorrow. The weather fooled us in the morning and was pretending to be horrible and rainy but by the time we’d arrived the sun was out and it was amazing sunshine! We saw Sam Smith, Clean Bandit, Duke Dumont and loads of other great acts but two of our favourites were Jess Glynne and Indiana. They both also looked amazing, both of their outfits were wicked so I thought I’d do a little get the look post with them as my inspiration! Please excuse my grainy iPhone photos!
What’s in the big pink box?! Pretty Polly & Hello Kitty have released a new range of socks & tights perfect for the festival season with welly socks galore. Basically, I love Hello Kitty and when I went to Japan I stocked up on Hello Kitty everything so I was definitely excited when these socks popped through my door! Check the range out here.
Pretty Polly are a brand that are iconic for women’s leg wear and hosiery. Today I’m bringing you a little post all about their latest venture into nightwear and lingerie. It’s very picture heavy because I think the pictures say so much more than me rambling on. You can see the quality and the prettiness of them without me telling you!
Summer is supposedly here and when the sun comes out I always find myself reaching for smaller bags than my usual Autumn Winter suitcases. I have a few favourites and they’re all quite teeny and I can just about fit my purse, phone and powder in there, but that’s all you really need for summer days isn’t it?
We all love a party, but the sore feet at the end of the night are the worst part, am I right? You feel like you could dance the night away the second you get out and by 20 minutes into your first cocktail you feel the familiar burning and aching sensation in your tootsies. This sucks. So I’ve brought you a few snazzy pairs of flats that you can dance the night away in without getting sore feet! I might not convert the heel-loving gals out of you but I’ll definitely be rocking a pair of flats next time I go out, they’re so much more conformable! I especially love the leopard print slippers.
