Adidas Stan Smiths have been a style staple on Pinterest, Instagram and the streets for a couple of years now and they don’t seem to be hiding away at the back of the wardrobe any time soon. I mean, if they’re good enough for Victoria Beckham, they’re good enough for me! I wear mine at least once a week and really want to get my hands on some new ones so I find them really versatile and easy to wear. Here are 8 different ways to style them that I’m loving.
I’ve become obsessed with the Refinery 29 Money Diaries! I don’t know why, maybe I’m just nosy, maybe I just want to know whether I spend a normal amount of money? I don’t know! If you’ve not read them, it’s basically an insight into what women with different salaries, different lives and who live in different areas of the UK spend every week. I also spotted that Gillian from Elevator Musik did her own version so I decided I would too!
Wardrobe rails can get pretty crowded over time, as we update them every season adding what’s new and on trend. But what if you could always look on point, with just five items in your wardrobe? I always switch up my wardrobe when it comes to each season. Packing away my jumpers and getting out my skirts etc but there are definitely key pieces that I keep in there all year round.
Can you believe it’s April already? I can’t even believe it’s Sunday already. Where does the time go? Weekends seem to fly by in a flash, especially when they’re jam packed and busy. I love a busy Saturday and a chilled out Sunday. This seems to be our go-to formula for a perfect weekend.
Feelin’ in a style rut? Want to try something different but you’re not sure what to add to your wardrobe or what will push you out of your comfort zone? I’ve got three things that you can try to funky up your look a little bit! Obviously, you don’t have to do all three at once if you’re not comfortable with it but I’ve always been a lil’ bit crazy and over the top with my style so it works for me!
A bit of a rambly post today, all about blogging and the world of influencers! At the moment, it feels like everyone is a blogger and also, at the same time, everyone is making it seriously big! These girls are giving up their jobs to be their own bosses, travel the world and absolutely smash it. I love following these girls, I love blogging and I (obviously) love paid jobs with brands I love but, would I want to do it full time?
Personal style is one of those things I like to think I’ve had all my life. From my beloved emo stage to where I am today I think I’ve always had my own sense of style. I’m happy that I’m never going to be a cookie-cutter Instagram-famous Missguided-wearing (OK, I have some pieces from Missguided but you know the dresses I mean!) type of girl. I’m more likely going to be wearing something a little bit fun like a faux fur bag or trying my best to channel a minimalist Scandi look than a bodycon dress, sky high heels or the latest slogan t-shirt.
It’s not often that I write favourites posts but every few months I find a few things that I find myself really liking and it’s always good to mix up the content on here! Here are 6 (mostly skincare and beauty but with a fashion fave) products that have been giving me life in December!
1. Time For Tea?
Winter is well and truly here and it’s time to get snuggly. One of my latest loves is this Black & Grey Colourblock Cape from Mint Velvet. I love this piece because you can easily just wear it as a huge scarf or a wrap around your shoulders as well as wear it like the cape it’s designed to be (it’s got arm holes!). It’s really versatile.
This ASOS Parka has been glued to my back ever since the temperatures dropped because it’s so cosy and surprisingly warm when it’s all buttoned up and you’ve got a scarf on and the hood up! Cosy as anything. You can usually find me in a Breton top, this New Look Striped Top, (similar here) was a bargain a few months ago at under a tenner and I’ve had so much wear out of it. I just love a classic striped top because they always go great with skinny jeans. My skinnies of choice at the moment are the Topshop Black Jamie Jeans. Finally, these Deichmann Loafers have made their way into my winter wardrobe. I’m usually a trainers girl through and through but occasionally it’s nice to wear an actual pair of shoes!
