Wreckless Serenade!

New Look Beret / NEXT Blazer / H&M Jumper / Matalan Denim Shirt / Matalan Necklace / Sorayas Striped Leggings / Matalan Bag / Ebay Wedge Creepers.

Last night, my boyfriend and I made a little trip to the Cinema where we watched 'The Host' which was really good actually, extravagantly silly yet undeniably entertaining! We originally wanted to watch GI Joe but the viewing time was a bit late. Saturday evenings are basically our 'movie night', whether it be cinema or a simple DVD in the comfort of his home, its always nice to have that bit of quality time. Anyway, my look last night was rather simple. With its neutral blue colour and beautiful gold button detailing, I evidently can't get enough of this Next Blazer.

This outfit was based around the colour blue, which I seem to be wearing a lot lately. The striped leggings made yet another appearance, I just adore them as they are perfect for this year's monochrome trend. I teamed them up with a blue denim shirt and a royal blue jumper plus the dark blue blazer for that color blocked effect. I finished off my look by adding a pair of royal blue creepers to match my jumper. As for the beret on my head, it was only inevitable that I would end up donning a hat; call me predictable.

Hope you are all having a lovely day filled with lots of chocolates!
Happy Easter

What's that I hear?

H&M Bowler Hat / Next Oversized Blazer / Wallis Striped Crop Top / New Look DIY Necklace /H&M Trousers / Primark Bag / New Look Heels.

"Remember me?" my print trousers asks. They made their last appearance in a preppy look so I decided to give them another chance. It is also another chance for them to woo you with their minimalistic potential. Seems as though the weather is a bit of a tease, one minute its sunny the next its gloomy! If you ever wonder why the weather influences my outfits so severely,it's because I'm always outside. Wherefore art thou, Spring?

I am becoming increasingly fond of Blue; if you haven't noticed, I've worn quite a few blue centered outfits the past 2 maybe weeks. It might be my mother's influence because blue is her favourite colour or its just me finally taking notice of all the blue item that have been rotting away at the back of my wardrobe. Either way, I am completely in love with this Dark Blue blazer which I found at the back of my mother's wardrobe which is now my new favourite item. She purchased it from Next 4 years ago but never wore it as she apparently doesn't like it! What's not to like? I subtly offered to take it off her hands as I adore it. Its a great wardrobe staple because it can be paired up with just about anything. The gold buttons are a bonus, great little details. This is also the second time I've worn this striped top which I've had for an astounding 4 years but never wore until two weeks ago; its actually funny how alike my mother and I are! Matching my lipstick to my shoes, the hint of red adds a bit of toughness whilst the clash of stripes and prints gives my look just enough edge. I don't usually wear long necklaces but I felt it went well with my look today. I actually made this necklace from an earring about a month ago. Yes, when boredom knocks; DIY.

 **So, yesterday I was in the South Wales Echo Newspaper. I have added a photo of the paper to my FEATURES Page. Head on over and have a little look. 
Hope you are all having a lovely day!

Little Red Memories, Nuclear Seasons!

Faux Fur Waistcoat / Primark Coat / Primark Floral Shirt / Ebay Neon Red Disco Pants / Matalan Bag / Internacionale Heels.

First of all, can I just point out that my hair is tied up today which is a very rare occurrence. I just fancied something different as my hair is always down and in a hat. Anyway, multicoloured pants and ripped leggings aside, its all about disco pants today. As promising as the weather seemed yesterday, its rather dull and quite cold. The redness of these disco pants is a little bright which is exactly what I love about them. I had always wanted a pair of disco pants, now I got a pair. Whilst having a little browse on Ebay, I came across these beauts which were on sale for £15; I had to have them.  My outfit today isn't themed around any one trend, its simply a mixture of the monochrome trend, prints and neons.

Teaming up my disco pants with a floral shirt and a coat to keep me warm, I'm in a rather formal look today. I love this crop faux fur waistcoat which I got from South Africa a while ago, it is super soft! Its such a great staple in my wardrobe, can be paired up with anything. I finished off my look by adding a pair of pump heels which I've had for nearly a year now. I quite like these because I can actually walk in them; we all know heels these days are not very practical. Some people fear that wearing heels strips an outfit of its casual element. I'm one of those people that wears them when I want regardless of the event, unless I absolutely have to do a lot of walking. I believe that your shoes hardly ever define whether or not your outfit is way too dressy, they just create a good middle ground for you to work with. 

Hope you all have a great day!

Autumn feel


Just go with it!

Ebay Flat Top Fedora Hat / Ebay John Lennon Style Sunglasses / Sister Vintage Cross Earrings / Ebay Blazer / H&M Shirt / DIY Shorts / Matalan Rucksack / Amazon.co.uk Heels.

The heavens seem to be smiling upon us today as the sun is out and the cold is actually bearable. Jumping on the tartan trend wagon, my look today is totally grunge inspired, my inner grunge child has been yearning to be released once again. I am particularly fond of the the DIY shorts which used to be my brother's trousers, that I just so happen to make this morning.

 
I love going through my brother's wardrobe because I always find his old jeans/trousers which I can use to make shorts. I made myself a pair of Boyfriend shorts from  his old jeans back in February, see them HERE! I teamed up the DIY shorts with a tartan blazer and a simple shirt so as not to divert attention away from the shorts as they are the brightest piece I have on today. I added my Matalan rucksack and fedora hat to add some edge to my look. As for the John Lennon style sunglasses, well let's keep it playful shall we? 

Hope you guys are having a lovely day!

Unorthodox!

 Ebay Flat Top Fedora Hat / Mirage Woolen Spiked Jumper / Internacionale Asymmetrical Dress / New Look Necklace / Amazon.co.uk Platform Boots /H&M Clutch Bag.

This look is way brighter than I can justify on a rather calm day in March. But hey, you can't blame me; I have been infinitely waiting for spring to arrive, am I pushing it? I'd like to believe that these colours distract people from my bare legs for a solid 30 seconds; well a girl can dream. Not everything I do or say can be explained, clearly..

This look debuts my black clutch bag, I don't think it has appeared on this blog before. I have had it for 2 years and counting, purchased it from H&M for just £5. How cool is my studded shoulder jumper? I have only ever worn it once ever since I bought it, been working my way through the new clothes purchased from the January sales very slowly. Teaming it up with this fuchsia asymmetrical dress which I wore on christmas day, I was going for a bohemian look.  No bohemian look is complete with a pair of John Lenon style sunnies! 
I confess, I am a devoted Cupcake eater and cannot wait to demolish these babies that mother just brought me, I am now content..
Hope you have lovely day!

Clashing Prints!

 
H&M Bowler Hat / H&M Jacket / Primark Shirt / Matalan Trousers / New Look Heels.

Being a huge fan of prints, I couldn't help but clash a few today. These pants or blazer have never made an appearance on this blog, so say hello! As weird as it sounds, prints make me come alive, they are just so vibrant and interesting. I am completely in love with these pants, they are the perfect combination of pretty print and comfortability. This look does me justice and lands me in a sea of personal harmony.


Teaming them up with a print shirt that I got from Primark a while ago whilst it was on sale for £5. The print on it is fabulous, it looks as though its a dupe of some of Henry Holland's designs. He is my favourite designer by the way. How cute is this jacket? I had my eye on it for ages until it went on sale in H&M; my excitement went through the roof. Of course, I had to buy it, its such a beautiful colour (its a light blue/lilac colour by the way, can't really see it in the photos). I finished off my look by adding my trusty bowler hat and platform heels for a simple, modest look!

What do you think of my look today?
