The Continuous Stripe Obsession

Follow

So if you follow me on IG you will be well aware of my current stripe obsession that seems as though it's not going to fade way any time soon. I know striped pieces are always in the shops year round, but they seem to be literally everywhere at the moment.. or else they're just more eye-catching than usual. New Look is also a shop that I don't normally go out of my way to visit, but I was so glad I did when I found this wrap-around kimono style top and also a grey/white stripe sleeveless jacket that I have yet to wear. I paired the kimono with a Topshop white cami underneath, Topshop blue Joni Jeans and Office boots.

Missguided Shirt Dress

Follow

This week has been so hectic for me - hence the tired face - that for a few days I almost forgot what it was like to dress in anything other than jeans and a jumper, even though it's essential for those days where you just need to sit and get stuff done. So despite my sleep deprived face, I thought I'd share this outfit featuring my new Missguided shirt dress that I'd been so excited to wear.

Honestly, I'd prefer if it was just a teeny bit longer so I'd feel more comfortable wearing it as a dress (although I am approx 5'9 so it would definitely fit an average height person perfectly.. lol). 
I found it on Missguided when they had the 50% off everything sale and managed to buy it before the site completely crashed.. so I picked it up for £14 - absolute bargain! It was one of those pieces that I had imagined a million different ways I could wear it when I spotted it online. When the rain eventually goes away for a few days, I'll definitely wear this unbuttoned as a long shirt with a grey cami underneath tucked into white jeans.. or even tucked into a white skirt. The options are endless. For now, I loved the way it looked when paired with my H&M grey maxi cardigan to add a bit of length.. so it's a perfect transitional piece for Spring! 

P.S. Sorry to anyone who took the time to leave me a comment on my previous post.. for some reason last night I lost all of my comments. I managed to get all of them back except the ones on my last post! x

Transitioning Into Spring

Follow

Firstly, apologies for my lack of posting lately - I've been so incredibly busy these past few weeks  with essays and other events that I've not been able to manage posting twice weekly. For the time being, I'm aiming to post once a week on a Sunday evening.. and my Wednesday posts will happen if I've got time (sorry!). Once June hits, I'll be free-ish once again so please bear with me! 

Anyway, you may have seen my posting these photos on my Instagram this past week.. and I'm definitely making it look as though we're having much better weather than we actually are. It's safe to say that these outfits were definitely accompanied by another layer on top, but I wanted to share some more of my Spring-ish pieces with you all as you always leave such nice comments! 

The contrast between dark navy and yellow will always be one of my favourite combinations. I paired this quite old Missguided cropped off-the-shoulder jumper with an ASOS body-con denim skirt which is again, quite old. Chunky knits are definitely associated with winter, and the winter sales are definitely where you can find amazing knits for very little money, although the off-the-shoulder style of this jumper makes it very Spring-appropriate, not to mention the bright yellow shade. I'll definitely bring this to America with me this summer to layer over a dress for the evening time!

Weekend Style: Blue Hues

Follow

With the UK/Ireland being in that awkward 'between seasons' stage where we're not quite out of the winter weather yet, but not quite getting the spring weather either.. long sleeves and layering pieces are essential. Recently, long sleeved dresses are all I've been looking for, but they're just so hard to find, so this new printed piece from Warehouse was definitely a must-buy. The sleeves are actually wrist-length but I prefer them to be rolled up just a bit and it's the perfect all-year-round piece as I can imagine it would look fab in the summer with tan legs and tan sandals, while it's also very Spring/Autumn appropriate as it looks amazing paired with sheer tights or when layered with a plain colour jacket to allow the pattern to peek through. I'm also loving the mixed print style of this dress, as well as the fact it can be worn as a long shirt with jeans for a more casual day-time look. Just imagine that with white jeans. *heart-eye-emoji*

Easter Sunday OOTD

Follow

I know everybody says the same thing, but I really cannot believe just how fast this year is flying by. It's Easter and almost April already, yet January seems like it was just last week. With Spring finally arriving (minus the warm weather), I've definitely been trying to add brighter colours to my wardrobe as I've mentioned before so I thought I'd share this little dress with you all. It's from a brand called Voulez-Vous and I actually picked it up for £10 in a closing-down sale in town (definitely regretting not buying the navy shade too!). It's quite an oversized shirt dress (hence the belt) with a concealed button-down front and bow-tie which is very 'on-trend' at the moment. The raspberry shade is perfect for Spring and looks fab when paired with a nude lip (I'm wearing MAC 'Hug Me' and Bare Minerals 'Revved' lip liner).
I'm always on the lookout for versatile fashion pieces that can be worn in multiple ways. These pieces are usually the plain and simple kind, meaning that you can do the 'one dress - three ways' thing and nobody will notice you've worn it before. This dress is one of those pieces as it also looks amazing when worn as an unbuttoned long shirt and paired with a cami underneath and jeans for a more casual look. So if you've picked up any really versatile pieces recently, definitely leave me a link to let me know!

'Mustard Chic' and Tips

Follow

Every so often, I get absolutely obsessed with certain tones and colours. For a while it was burgundy, then khaki green and now I can't seem to get enough mustard pieces in my wardrobe. It's a colour that I never thought I'd wear or could ever pull off when it started becoming 'trendy' again and although I do sometimes find it hard to match, I'd always say creams or greys work best to 'tone it down' a little. In my opinion, I'd avoid anything camel or warm toned as it can be a bit too warm, although colour-blocking with mustard and burgundy for example can look amazing too. I'm definitely going to give colour-blocking a go this Spring/Summer!

NEW IN: Topshop


It was Autumn of 2013 that tartan became a massive staple in my wardrobe, as it seemed to become super popular on the fashion front with so many high street retailers making it a huge focus in their stores and online. Being my picky self when it comes to patterns (as well as everything else in life), I spent pretty much this whole year trying to find a tartan shirt that wasn't too long, wasn't too 'manly looking' and didn't look like a pyjama top. Definitely easier said than done!
