Shirt - Pretty Lavish* Skirt - Zara Sandals - Mango Bag - YesStyle
I am still trying to cling on to summer, even though it feels like the middle of Autum with this weather. (And I am secretly excited about all the AW15 collections that keep popping up!). But whilst it is still July, I AM going to wear a skirt.
This lovely oversized shirt tunic is from Pretty Lavish. I love this, it's actually a dress but I am loving the whole long line look at the moment, so I paired it with a denim skirt from Zara I got a few months back. It's so simple and chic, it's something every girl should have in her wardrobe. And if you head to Pretty Lavish and enter the code OLIVIA10, you can get 10% off to!
Also, who knew I would ever be digging this neckerchief out of my wardrobe again? I've seen this look cropping up a bit over the last few weeks and I am kinda loving it! What do you guys think? I can't even remember where this one is from, but you can pick one up here for just £6!
Trousers - Zara Top - H&M Bag - YesStyle Sunglasses - Primark
Finally, a pair of flares that are actually long enough for me. So long that they're actually a little TOO long. Trip hazard anyone? God knows how anyone under 5'11 will manage to walk in these trousers with their lives intact. But hey, they look cute and too long is better than too short in my opinion. These Zara pants are channelling proper 70's bell bottoms and I love it!
These trousers are part of Zara's amazing new Studio AW collection. I need and want everything from this line at the moment. They've really turned summers 70's boho trend transitional, which means we don't have to abandon our suede, tassels and hippy prints just yet. I paired these simple yet kinda loud trousers with this cute Chloe inspired top I picked up in H&M. I just love the colour and style of this top, especially that embroidered edging! This mustard colour is a colour that I think my wardrobe was really missing, and it's the perfect little summer top too.
Remember those Zara lace up sandals of the summer? Well, I missed out on them first time round. I was desperate for them, but I felt they weren't quite worth the price originally. Then, I missed them in the sale too! Bummer. But then Public Desire came and saved the day (as usual) with the perfect alternative for a fraction of the price. Plus, I think they're actually comfier than the Zara ones I tried. Public Desire have the most amazing selection of shoes at the moment, my favourites being the Aquazzura red tassel dupes!
This dress has been one of my summer favourites, I can't actually believe I haven't blogged this yet as I've pretty much lived in this. It's so floaty and pretty and really comfortable to wear. It's sadly sold out now, but you may still be able to catch it in store or on eBay. What with my trusty messenger bag and embroidery, I am channeling major Chloe vibes all over today!
I feel all ABBA-esque in this bell sleeve top. Or my 'pirate top' as my boyfriend calls it. But it's swishy, fun, pretty and perfect for summer. This is actually a dress from Zara but being the same height as Hagrid, it's pretty short for me, so wearing it with jeans is a bit of a compromise (and a bit of a dignity saver). And it's so Chloe, too. It's actually sold out online now but you may be able to catch it in store still.
I pared this top with a pair of cropped (yes they're supposed to be that short, it's not just normal jean length on my long legs) jeans from Topshop, which I think are perfect for summer and a nice change from skinnys or flares. Another Chloe shout out here is this amazing bag I got from YesStyle, the same site I got my Drew look-alike from my previous outfit post. This bag is so chic and it can be worn as a clutch too, which gives it double style points. Along with all this, I've added a pair of platform clogs to top off that 70's retro feel.
Every time I shoot a new outfit, it doesn't just end with blog post. Posting on different social media platforms is crucial for a blogger, as is constant promotion of yourself and your blog. Without promotion and putting your links and outfits out there, you're not reaping the entire benefits of social media. And believe me, there are some amazing benefits.
That's where feels comes in to play. In association with Storm Models, feels is the first fashion modelling app. Posting on the app gives you the chance to be contacted with amazing new opportunities, what with so many companies using the app, and it also gives you the chance to be scouted by companies; Storm Models included (if you're lucky!). The beauty of feels is, you aren't just limited to an image, you can upload your latest vlog and youtube clips for people to discover, or 'feel' as it's called on the app. You can tag all your favourite fashion and beauty brands, and subscribe to your favourite users, all under one social media roof.
It's fast becoming my go to blogger app! Head over to your feels app and search for Olivia Laura Turner to follow me! You can download feels for free here and give it a try for yourself!
Firstly, apologies for my slight hiatus as of late. Since being back from holiday I have had so much to catch up on and I have so much I want to show you guys too, so I have plenty of outfits to fill you guys in on.
Anyway, like I said I have not long come back from two weeks in Marbella and I can't describe how depressing it is being back in the UK, back to work and away from the pool, cocktails and 38 degree heat. The first thing I did when I got back was purchase this lovely longline knit from the Zara sale. I guessed that I would be needing it with our summer weather here, and I thought it would be the perfect extra bit of warmth for those summer days and nights where I want to wear a dress but don't want to freeze.
Another fab sale purchase were these Topshop tassel boots that I had my eye on a few months back. I'm glad I waited for the sale as these beauties were a bargain! As was this Chloe-esque bag from YesStyle. I honestly have not taken this bag off since it arrived last month and it cost a whopping £15; shopping for dupes doesn't get better than that!
