Snakeskin Stylin’

2018, Fashion, Outfit Post, Uncategorized

Hey lovelies! Another week, another outfit! I’ve actually been some-what organised (makes a change) and I have a couple of posts ready to post.
For today’s outfit post, I thought I’d share an outfit wear I’m wearing a super unique print… snakeskin! It isn’t in a lot of shops so you may struggle to get your hands on it…

Seriously though, you currently cannot escape the animal print. It is everywhere! I can’t really complain because I do love animal print. However there is literally nothing else. I walked into Zara and was swallowed up by the leopard print. So I had to jump on the trend and buy myself something snake print.
I went for a simple snakeskin cami from Bershka which was a £10 bargain. It’s super simple with a v neckline and back. And it’s really light material which makes it really easy to layer.

So any opportunity to layer, I’ll take it. Layering is always the way to go. I wore my black turtle neck which is from Primark and I’ve had this top for years. Maybe too long as I’ve had to sew the seams back together but it’s a necessity in my wardrobe. I live in turtle necks as they’re so easy to style and to just throw on. And they make the perfect top to layer with. I adore wearing a cami over a turtle neck.

Sticking with the layering; on top of my turtleneck I’m wearing my new favourite necklaces. Which are my 3 gold necklaces from H&M. I love these as I’m obsessed with the coin-like necklaces that are around at the moment. And I’m much preferring gold jewellery to silver currently.
I wore jeans with this outfit just to keep it simple. And I kept it basic with my trusty Reserved Boyfriend Jeans. Which are the comfiest pair of jeans to walk to earth. I always feel a bit plain when I wear jeans but with wearing trousers in sixth form, I feel like my trousers are just for school now.

And talking about school wear, I wore my fave Zara Faux Suede Yellow Jacket which is my school jacket! However I felt like a pop of colour and I adore this jacket. I bought this a couple years back for only £15 and it’s lasting me so well. The snakeskin print is really easy to wear with different colours which I love as I always like a pop of colour.

And I was really mixing things up in this outfit as I’ve broke out of my habit of wearing my Converse 24/7. On my feet are my new obsessions, my Dr. Martens. I was wearing them in my last post as well as they’re the best especially in this season! I’m still unsure if I like them with this outfit as I’m so used to the trainer vibe but I do love wearing them.

What animal print have you all be loving?

Styling the Winter Florals

2018, Fashion, Outfit Post, Uncategorized

I always look forward to autumn as I love the fashion. But I’ve underestimated how cold the weather is. These photos may seem like I am comfortable but just remember that looks are deceiving. I’d spent 10 minutes out in the cold and I’d already caught hypothermia by that point…!
I really liked this outfit. It’s nothing special, nothing I wear ever is but I thought I’d share. I’m planning some different fashion content that should hopefully appear on here soon. As I feel like my outfit posts are of a dreadful quality as I’ve lost the ability to write well…

I’m wearing my all time favourite midi skirt which is from H&M. This was a £5 steal from the sale when it should have been £27 and it’s one of my greatest achievements in life. (yes I’m not talented so finding things in the sale is how I like to congratulate myself in life). I feel like H&M can be very hit or miss however it’s a great place for wardrobe staples. This floral wrap skirt is my most loved skirt as it’s so easy to style and throw on. It has a frill hem which is super cute and the yellow flowers on the black is such a beaut pattern.
(I am also wearing skin coloured tights as well before you all think I’m mad going out in bare legs).

Florals are obviously most suited for summer but I much prefer the winter floral vibe. So I wore this basic Dark Grey Sweater from Zara. This is the most perfect top. When buying basic tee’s or jumpers, I’m super picky so I have to find the most perfect basics. (I’m still searching for that perfect black t-shirt. I know there is one out there I just need to find it.) But Zara nail their basics. This sweater is such fab quality and has a loose fit which I love. As the sleeves are loose but not baggy, it’s just perfect. So I’ll be wearing this all the time and for £12 I had to buy the black one as well! And this dark grey is my favourite colour. The dark grey paired with the florals makes the skirt more suited for the season.
I did also throw on a Primark Grey Turtleneck underneath for some added warmth. However it’s basically the same colour as my sweater hence why they look like they’re joined!

Onto my new purchase and my current obsession. Is my bag. My new baby. It is the Embossed Square Crossbody bag from Zara. And was only £15.99 so I couldn’t say no because I unfortunately have no self control when it comes to shopping. I’d been wanting a green bag for a while but was waiting for the right one to find me. And I literally ran up to this bag when I saw it in Zara. (Imagine seeing your friend after not seeing them in a while. Yep that was me with this bag…) It’s a dark green so perfectly suited for the winter season. And it has an embossed croc style finish as well as a silver clasp. Everything about it is so gorgeous. The bag is also sold in black as well which I was very tempted by but I was good and just stuck to the one…!

On my feet, shock horror, I’m not wearing my trusty Converse for a change. But I’m wearing my Dr Martens which I adore with this outfit. These are actually my shoes that I primarily bought for school however I quite like them for out of school as well. They really go well with midi skirts in winter, you can’t go wrong with a simple black shoe. I’m well and truly Dr Marten converted now. These were definitely worth the money as they’re such good quality and I just love them.

And for this outfit to top it all off, I brought back my Black Baker Boy hat from Pretty Little Thing. I bought this last year so it’s not sold anymore. I wore this in a blog post last year which I’m not linking as I look like a shit show to put in nicely. But I always looked back on that and decided that I would never put this hat back on my head. However I quite liked it with this outfit, I felt quite good in myself which makes a change. I don’t think it suits me that well, I’m not a hat person really. I’ll always be greatly jealous of the people in this world who can pull off a beret as it is unfortunately not myself.

Hope you enjoyed reading. I shall be back soon with some more fashion posts. (I always say this and I always take my time to post again but this time I mean it…)

Styling The Spotty Trousers

2018, Fashion, Outfit Post, Outifts, Uncategorized

You may have read my recent post on how I’m trying to be ethical in my fashion choices. So here is me wearing my new trousers from Asos, a key brand contributing to fast fashion!! (woohoo go me)! I am trying to make a positive impact but I’m so far struggling to stay away from my high-street favourites. And with the new brand ‘Collusion’ hitting ASOS, I couldn’t help myself. However my new rule is to buy less, wear more. So I feel a little less guilty…
My Dad also took these pics so thanks John, a true legend…

These trousers are the Collusion Spot Print Trousers. I’d seen Collusion on social media a lot so only went for a little browse to see the style of everything. I had no intention of buying anything however I have zero self control and here we are. These trousers caught my eye straight away as I love the spotty print on them. The print is like an unorganised polka dot print. I love a bold print however these trousers are super easy to style and wear as they’re black and white.
From online I thought they would be quite structured however they literally feel like pj’s. They have a super loose fit, the only place where they are tight against my body is at the waist. Which I love as I’ve formed a deep hate for tight trousers!

I wanted a simple outfit so just paired the spots with my Red Oversized Sweater from Pretty Little Thing. I love the red against the black and white. A super simple and easy outfit to throw on however I love my bold colours so it floats my boat!
I also paired my simple black chain bum bag with this outfit and wore it cross body. It’s super simple and my favourite thing from Pull&Bear! And of course on my feet are my trusty One Star Converse. These are my favourite shoes, they’re pretty basic so are perfect to throw on.

I wore my layered gold necklaces from H&M which are gold coins and a simple chain. I’m slowly becoming a gold jewellery person. And layering necklaces looks so gorgeous on! My jewellery addiction is becoming worse at the moment. You can never have too much jewellery and I need so much more!

Feminist Tee & Boyfriend Jeans

Fashion, Uncategorized

It’s finally September so I can finally smile because autumn is my favourite time of the year! Never been a fan of summer. I’m all about the turtlenecks and knits. And I love sleeping with socks on so bring on the cold weather.
This outfit in today’s post also looks really boring the more I look at it. I think it’s because I’m used to wearing something with a bright colour. However now it’s getting into autumn, I’m ready to dress in neutral colours. Or shall I say ‘autumnal’. (Everyone seems to hate that word but I probably end up saying it 10 times a day in autumn so you’ve been warned…).

It was a little bit chilly when I wore this. It was the middle of August but I felt like being warm. (Most times if I plan an outfit I won’t change if it’s bad weather. Stubborn is my middle name…) And I didn’t have the perfect jacket so opted to layer my tops. I’m wearing this fabulous ‘Feminist’ slogan t-shirt from Bershka. Which is from their ‘Join Life’ collection. This means that it’s made from ecologically grown cotton so is a great perk for the environment. I bought this on my hols and my feminist self couldn’t not buy it.
It has a black and white square print of two faces on and the word ‘Feminist’ embroided over. It’s super cute and I’m a proud feminist so I love this tee. And I simply wore this over a black long sleeve top and tucked it into my jeans.

The jeans (wow Kate isn’t wearing a midi skirt!!) I’m wearing are from Reserved and I live in these. I think they’re a pair of their boyfriend style jeans. (The only thing I’ll ever have to do with a boyfriend…) But these are so ridiculously comfy. They are made from a polycotton blend which is why they’re so comfy because the polyester gives them a bit more stretch than 100% cotton. This also makes them super cheap. I think I bought them from a London store for £9. For a simple pair of jeans that make the perfect pair for everyday wear, it’s such a bargain.
I’d really recommend Reserved as a shop. I always forget to shop online their but it’s something that I’ll do more!

And I kept it simple with my thick black belt and my Guess black shoulder bag. And my One Star Converse. Do I ever wear anything else? No… Is this the perfect excuse to buy a new bag? I think so.
