Pyjama Stripes








Shirt - Topshop  Trousers - Topshop  Heels - Zara  Necklace - Love Silver*

Sometimes, a change is needed from your usual skinny jeans or slim pants. Wide leg trousers and flares are so on trend at the moment, so now is the time to step out of your comfort zone and brave the tent pant. 

This two piece from Topshop may look like pyjamas and it is actually just as comfortable as pyjamas too, but I love it. It's a somewhat chic play on casual. As I am pretty tall and the trousers didn't quite touch the ground when I was wearing flats, I decided to wear them a little higher and have them as more of an ankle grazer flare, paired with a pair of burgundy heels from Zara to bring out the subtle burgundy stripe running through the outfit. 

How cute is this Carrie-esque necklace from Love Silver too? I got this over London Fashion Week at the Rare London blogger breakfast and I wear it all the time now! Silver is definitely my favourite jewellery colour and whats better than a bit of personalisation?

Shiny Show









Top - NaaNaa*  Trousers - H&M  Shoes - Topshop  Bag - Zara  Sunglasses - Burberry

I love it when you find something that's really different and stands out from the crowd. I am definitely  not one for following the crowds, and my mum may have laughed and called these clown trousers when she first saw them (I believe she changed her mind once she saw them on) but either way, I am absolutely in love. The blush pink colour, the tailored stiff culotte style and the shiny satin-feel material shouldn't work, but it does for me. 

I feel like they are going to go with so many things in my wardrobe at the moment, and one thing I decided to pair them with was this cute, boho top from NaaNaa. It's so pretty and on trend, and I love the lace striped arms and cute hem. It is perfect for summer and at only £22, it is a wardrobe must.

I finished off the outfit with the most beautiful shoes to ever have graced my wardrobe. The Topshop Ghillie is back in full force and looking as perfect as ever in this nude/black combo. And after a little begging, they arrived in gift form from my lovely boyfriend. They might look killer, but these babies are surprisingly comfortable. If particularly unpractical (nude suede shoes anyone?).

Boho Accents








Playsuit - Motel*  Hat - Topshop  Bag - Zara  Boots - Topshop

The first weekend of Spring, guys. It's here, and with the arrival of Spring and some boiling (10 degree) sunshine over the weekend, it was obviously obligatory to get my SS15 wardrobe out, ASAP. Because lets face it, it could have lasted about 10 minutes and today could have actually been our Summer (according to my Time Hop, I was stuck in the snow this day two years ago, so who knows). 

The first thing you may think when seeing this post is 'Does she not own an iron?'. Well, I was that eager to get this beautiful Motel Rocks playsuit out that I didn't care whether it was creased or not. It adds to the boho vibe, no? Anyway, I absolutely love this cute playsuit from their latest drop on the website. I was drawn to the pretty, hippy print instantly and I thought it would be perfect for summer and the whole 70's boho vibe that's around everywhere at the moment. 

I decided to add some tassels and colour in the form of my Zara bucket bag, which is not only pretty but actually practical for a change too. 

I am giving you guys the chance to WIN this playsuit or another item of your choice from Motel's New In section, up to the value of £50! All you have to do is head over to my Instagram, where I will be running the competition, and follow the instructions given on there! Please note that this prize is non-transferrable or returnable. No cash alternatives. Motel reserves the right to change or amend the terms of the competition at any time.

Good luck!

Double Denim







Shirt - Fashion Union*  Jeans - ASOS*  Scarf - Topshop  Bag - H&M  Shoes - Zara

What with the 70's trend all the rage at the moment, when is a better time to rock some double denim? Whether it's matching shades or mixing hues, double denim doesn't have to be a Britney and Justin-esque disaster.

I paired my light blue denim shirt with a pair of ripped knee skinnies from ASOS. These jeans have to be one of the most flattering pairs of jeans I have worn, they are like a jean-spanx hybrid. Sucking in all the bits you don't need. I decided to add a little colour and warmth by throwing on my Topshop cape as a scarf and going for a matching clutch from H&M to keep the outfit fairly simple.

Swimwear 365 Spa Day










Bikini and Costume - Swimwear 365*

Can you believe that, at the age of 22, I had never been on a spa day. It seems to be the ultimate girly must, and I the closest I had ever had to a facial was getting a posh face wipe when going for a foundation match up at the Chanel counter at Debenhams. So when the lovely ladies at Swimwear 365 contacted me and invited me and a friend to a Spa day of my choice, I'm sure you could imagine my excitement. 

I decided to head to Carden Park in Cheshire, not far from where I live. With our gorgeous new swimwear in tow, courtesy of Swimwear 365, we headed straight to the leisure facilities whilst we waited for our lunch. The sauna, steam rooms and pool were perfect for a chill out and a catch up, and before we knew it we were heading for our lunch. Sat in a restaurant with no makeup on, rocking a hair bun and sat in a white robe and slippers was definitely surreal, but since everyone else was doing the same it felt quite nice to be so care free. 

After lunch, we both headed to the relaxation rooms to wait for our treatments, a luxury aromatherapy massage and facial. These lovely rooms filled with squishy beds and chilled out music were just perfect to wind down before the start of our treatments, which was 2 hours and 25 minutes of heaven. My skin felt totally rejuvenated and the aromatherapy oils were heavenly. 

A day of swanning around in my white robes and being a lady of leisure was just what I needed, and now I know what I have been missing out on all those years, I definitely won't be leaving it that long until my next visit. I cannot thank the people at Swimwear 365 enough for spoiling me so much.

Grey Monday





Shirt - Boohoo*  Jeans - ASOS*  Jacket - Zara  Hat - Topshop  Boots - Topshop  Bag - LK Bennett

I am feeling all 50 Shades of Grey in this blog post. Not that it's a bad thing, Grey is one of my favourite colours. And these grey Mom jeans from ASOS are a nice little change up from the standard black jean I usually seem to rely on.

I think the Mom style jeans add a totally different look to your outfit, they give it a bit more edge. It may be a little daunting if you are a loyal skinnies fan to take the plunge into baggy and high waisted (not always the most flattering of combinations) but these ASOS jeans are just the right amount of Mom without looking like a walking Urban Outfitters disaster. They're fitted, but still a little oversized in the right places. 

I teamed this with my new favourite monochrome striped shirt from Boohoo and some grey and black accessories. I have become a little bored of the mini messenger bags now and this LK Bennett Rosamund bag is so nice as a bit more of a bigger, statement shopper. It's classic yet still on point.
