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.
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!
Topshop is a great brand when it comes to Black Friday because I sometimes think their pieces are a little bit overpriced so when they head into amazing sales, get hunting for some amazing bargains. These are my 10 faves from their sale.
The piece of the season the Grey Checked Blazer is the one if you’re part of the Insta-tribe. Next up, I love this Star-Print Wrap Dress, Black Zip Vinyl Skirt and this Megan-Ellaby worthy Faux Fur Yellow Coat is amazing! Layer everything on top of this super pretty Embroidered Triangle Bra.
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!
Autumn is going to catch up with us quicker than we think, I’m sure of it! It’ll soon be September and time to pack away the sandals and get back into our boots. I’ve been loving some of the new in pieces on the high street at the moment and thought these 6 pieces would be perfect for the seasonal transition. They can all work together as well so they’re great if you’re a capsule wardrobe chick like I wish I was.
Super babe blogger and fashion queen Olivia Palermo was spotted at London Fashion Week this weekend wearing PORTS 1961 pre-spring 2017 shirt as part of this amazing outfit so I thought I’d whip up a quick get the look to show you how to get her look for a lot less cash!
First up, head to ASOS and pick up any of their amazing oversized white shirts, I love this Wood Wood Frankie Shirt with Striped Arms which is only £56.00 in the sale, it’s arm detail is really interesting and creates a cool accent to the outfit. Also from ASOS are these killer Public Desire Burgundy Shoes at only £29.99. Topshop saves the day as usual with these two statement pieces, firstly the Moto Fringe Hem Jeans for £42.00, I have a feeling she might actually be wearing these exact jeans and this Topshop Light Khaki Canvas Jacket, £40.00, is a great dupe for her casual jacket.
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.
Hey Christmas vouchers, presents to exchange and mon-aaay! It’s Boxing Day, it’s time to spend that dollar and get some stuff you actually want. Let’s talk beauty bargains.
First up an absolute steal of three of Benefit’s amazing tinted lip balms, Posiebalm mini, Benebalm mini and Chachabalm mini in a super cute Benefit Lip Hydrator Trio for only £11.30! Next in line is this beautiful little Clarins 5 Minute Kit With BB Cream in Shade 02 which is £13.33 on Boots at the moment. You have the fab BB Skin Perfecting Cream SPF25 in 02 Medium 15ml which I featured in this post (plot spoiler, I love it), there’s also the amazing Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector 01 Rose Shimmer which is an awesome lip balm/gloss, the Be Long Mascara and a super cute tiny Blush Prodige 02 Soft Peach which is the perfect handbag size. Finally in the makeup stakes is the Smashbox Glosses To Go Light It Up Lip Gloss Set, also £13 from Boots and includes five shades; Bare Light, Orange Light, Fuchsia Light, Lilac Light and Ruby Light.
Recently, McArthur Glen East Midlands Designer Outlet invited me down to check out their awesome White Shirt Bar that’s been up and down the country at all of the designer outlets. Opened by Milly Mackintosh earlier in the month, (one of my style crushes), and showcasing all of the gorgeous shirts that Brooks Brothers have created, the White Shirt Bar is a pretty cool addition to any shopping trip.
This is my take on the Tailored Goth look from Topshop’s recent beauty tutorial. I created it with a few of the awesome Topshop beauty products, namely the amazing Matte Lip Bullet in Get Me Bodied which is a killer colour! I’m also wearing the Kajal Kohl Liner in Lucky 13 and the Matte Liner in Soot and the super cute rose gold Topshop Skull Choker.
