25. Nearly 26. Do I feel old? Not in my current job, I feel like one of the youngest (because I am) in the whole team but do I feel experienced? I actually do and that’s a great feeling. I thought I’d share my career journey so far because I loved reading Jess’s post here from a few months ago about her career journey since graduating and her journey to becoming a freelancer.
Eeeek, I think we all saw Fashion’s Dirty Secret on BBC last week and were all suitably shocked. I had never heard of the Aral Sea, nor did I realise that the jeans I’ve been buying could have contributed to the complete lack of water that has plagued the poor towns and villages around this area. This paired with the horrific polluted waters from the factories of our well known high street brands was almost too much to watch. I won’t go into every detail of the show in this post because you probably watched it but we all know that fast fashion seriously has something to answer for when it comes to the environment.
Last weekend I had a very lovely visit to the new Converse store that’s recently launched at East Midlands McArthurglen Designer Outlet and we were greeted by wall to wall Converse – exactly what you’d expect.
I know what you’re thinking, weren’t they all just random neon yellow pairs that no one wanted from online? I’m not going to lie to you, there were a few random pairs knocking about on their sample sale style walls but seriously, there were so many bargains and so many pairs that you’d really want. These guys? £60 on the highstreet – so many pairs in every size for £40. That’s a £20 saving and £20 more to spend in the Cadbury outlet store. Yep.
Another post full of shopping-enabling picks for you today, gals. I don’t know what happened but after I tried on this amazing River Island crochet jumper I’ve been obsessing over yellow. 100% my new fave colour of the summer. I picked up some amazing yellow sandals in Primark last week and I’m just trying to stop myself buying all of the picks in this post! Let me know what you think about these pieces in the comments.
Wedding season is well and truly here, I don’t know how many hen and stag parties I’ve seen roaming the various cities I’ve visited recently but they are everywhere! I’m heading to one this week myself and I’m so excited as it’s my first wedding since I was 12 and a bridesmaid so it’ll be a very different affair to that one I expect. It’s also a good friend’s wedding and I’m just so thrilled for her I’m so excited to be celebrating with them! Here are three outfits that are perfect for this glorious weather and super happy occasions.
You all know how much I’ve been obsessed with this aviator jacket this winter and I’m looking for a new spring time version to fill the void! Here are 9 of my favourite jackets on the market right now, the high street has so many awesome jackets, coats and denim delights so… enjoy!
Without it even being Valentine’s Day pink and red have been all over the high street recently! I for one am loving this combination that used to be a total fashion faux pas. Remember the days when pink and red should never have been seen together? Well, no more.
Basically, these days if you’re not wearing pink and red together, who are you? I posted this super cute Primark sweatshirt on my Instagram the other day (£5 might I add) which is baby pink with “Love Will Save Us” written on the front and it inspired me to seek out some other cute bargain-ous pieces from the great British high street. Everything is frilly, statement or textured and I love all of these piece. I hope you like ’em!
Denim is one of those things that I think people have comfort blankets with, it definitely is for me. I’m 80% a skinny jeans girl these days and have been for a long time now. Pre-skinny jeans days it was all about the boot cut for the school disco, right? And before the boot cut days it was all about the skater fit jeans – remember those Tammy Girl dreamboats? Amazing. The more ripped, the baggier, the grubbier, the better. Those were the days. My jeans evolution has grown with me as I’m sure it has for most people my age and denim will always be my number one go-to for the start of an outfit.
Sweater weather is here! Hell to the yes, I literally love jumpers, cardigans, knitwear, however many times you want to say it – I just wanna be cosy af all the time. Here are 9 pieces fresh from three of my fave high street brands to shop from that I am loving for the new season.
ASOS is bringing the big guns this year when it comes to knitwear and they have nailed it with this oversized crew neck cream jumper. It is pure Pinterest perfection and is 100% going straight in my basket when a little discount rolls my way. Two super bright beauties that I’m loving have to be the fluffy lilac jumper with wide sleeves – (how amazing is this colour?) and the PrettyLittleThing three tiered baby blue jumper. Who said AW had to be all boring and dark? Not ASOS!
As if it’s September? It’s basically autumn and summer is well and truly behind us. Well, I hope the weather realises so anyway because I always get so confused this time of year about what to wear. The day will start out freezing and you’ll be sweating by lunchtime. Nightmare. Anyway, seeing as it’s a whole new month I thought I’d share some items I’m lusting over for the new season.
