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.
Midi skirts used to give me nightmarish flash backs of my old school kilt that was absolutely huge, scratchy and not at all cute. Why did everyone else’s kilt actually fit them and the school shop lady thought I was apparently about 20 stone heavier than I was? No idea but it was horrific. Now, midi skirts are sassy, flirty and all kinds of Insta-worthy. These are 7 of the babes that I’ve spotted recently and wanted to share.
We’ve had a snippet of summer recently and it’s got me very excited for some sunshine as I’m sure it has for you guys too. Summer means barbecues, cute white tops, making a bee line for the beer garden after work and of course, upgrading your sunglasses collection. I headed down to Loxley for a lovely bloggers event last week to check out their new sunglasses launch, catch up with some lovely people and meet some new blogger babes too.
Two things that I’ve been loving recently: the whole 10 series of Friends now being on Netflix and wearing tea dresses layered over roll necks. But seriously, who else has totally binged watched Friends this month? Life changing.
This cute dress trend caught my eye a few months ago when it sprung up but I honestly couldn’t find any that weren’t too short or too low-cut for my preference in the summer and autumn months when they were most prominent. I just don’t have the confidence to be all out when I’m not on holiday or in beach wear! I always find that I think I can’t wear a specific trend or style until I find my way of styling it up or the right piece.
Disclaimer, before we get into this post. This is 100% a post that is only, and I mean it, only about a new sassy pair of sweatpants and a trip to Nando’s. So, if it’s a thought provoking, clickable, readable post that you’re after and you don’t want to hear about the new Nando’s pitta, leave now. I am chilling the hell out over Christmas and popping out the odd cute little post about what I’m up to and that’s about it. Of course I’m thinking about posts for the new year but I definitely don’t want to use all of my *incredible* ideas before January hits so, here’s a super simple insight into my life recently. It’s New Year’s Eve tomorrow and the last thing we all need is stress and opinions so, here’s a blog post about chicken and elasticated waistbands.
Green is literally everywhere at the moment! It seems to have crept up on us all like the red trend did and I’m loving it. I picked up this super cute floral blouse from Missguided that I showed off on Instagram the other week and I’m really embracing adding some more colour to my wardrobe. I’ve chosen 6 awesome pieces from ASOS that can fit in easily with your style. Just add a touch with accessories or go all out with a dress, just pick your shade!
There’s nothing wrong with being a basic sometimes when trends are this cute. I totally don’t care! You be as authentic and original as you like but I’m sticking here with these cutie-matootie trends that I can’t get enough of. From Pinterest style to that holiday Instagram prop, you name it, I’m on it.
Summer hasn’t even really arrived yet, although it’s been really, really nice this week! But, it’s not too soon to be thinking about your autumnal wardrobe. Once the summer has passed dressing gets tricky. The summer stuff returns to the box under the bed and warmer alternatives are needed. Belted coats, dusky blues and vintage-inspired fur coats are all returning to our wardrobes this season.
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!
I posted one of the (awesome, thanks Anna) pics from this outfit on my Instagram this morning with a caption that was just exactly what I was thinking. What shall I write to go along with this outfit? I just felt like I didn’t have loads to say (for once, I know, parents evening flashback). Most of the time, I’ve got something to chat about, be it something great or the struggles of work, blogging, life, everything! But, this time I didn’t really know what to write.
