All White Everything










Blazer - Zara  Trousers - In The Style by Lauren Pope*  Bag- Zara  Shoes - Public Desire*

Wearing all white is pretty risky, especially for a fake tan fiend like myself. But all white is so chic and so simple, sometimes, you just have to give in. Along with a little vigilance and plenty of hand washing, you will be rocking all white in no time.

This blazer from Zara ticks all the boxes; crisp white, longline, oversized and belted. It definitely looks more expensive than Zara, and can be worn so many ways, it’s just a definite wardrobe staple. I decided to wear mine on it’s own with a pair of white suit trousers from In The Style. 

Adding a little fringing brings out the black button detailing and kind of brings it from the brink of being a bit too formal. I finished out the outfit with my new favourite nude heels from Public Desire. These lace up beauties give Aquazzura a run for their money, and they’re so damn comfy too!

Drew Dreaming








Jacket - Mango  Dress - Miss Selfridge  Bag - Forever21  Shoes - Zara  Watch - Camden Watch Company at Watch Shop

Sorry for the lack of blogging recently, I have been moving house and have consequently had no internet for quite some time. A bloggers/social media obsessives worst nightmare. Anyway, I thought I would show you guys some of my favourite new purchases. 

Firstly, shoutout to Forever21 for making THE most perfect Chloe Drew dupe bag for an amazing £17. I was in love as soon as I spotted this on Instagram, and shot to Liverpool straight away in hunt for this. I am so glad I managed to snap one up, I think for £17 I may have to get it in other colours too! 

Another Chloe-esque aspect to my outfit are the lace up sandals from Zara. I love these shoes, they are perfect for summer. The ideal heel height, lace up and perfectly on trend. I threw on my new Mango suede jacket I got a few weeks back to add that perfect 70's feel. I am currently holiday outfit planning, and I am majorly loving all the boho/70's looks that are about. I will definitely be rocking the hippy vibes in Spain in a few weeks time.

Summertime Layering








Shirt - Boohoo*  Dress - Zara  Culottes - Lavish Alice  Shoes - Mango

You know the time of year. The blue sky is out, it looks warm outside yet it's probably the same temperature as the antarctic. It's kind of like that at the moment in the UK (or maybe just Wales by the sounds of it, smug Londoners getting all the sun). Anyway, I have been dying to wear this Zara dress after picking it up a few weeks back now, but I haven't quite braved bare legs, sleeveless AND V-neck just yet. 

So, what better time to mix it up a bit with some layering, summer style. Adding a shirt underneath gives the dress a little more depth, especially as it's patterned. It also gives you a bit of modesty, because sometimes a plunging neckline isn't majorly appropriate whilst hanging around in the day time. A pair of culottes underneath longline items works really well too and just gives it more of an edge. 

It may not be the most conventional way to wear a summer dress, but then again, who wants to be like everybody else?

Dungarees








Dungarees - Rare*  Shirt - Zara  Jacket - Missguided* Shoes - Public Desire*

How amazing has this weather been lately? I feel like I should make the most of days like these as, lets face it, British summertime does not last long. We are lucky to have any warm days in my eyes. So what better time than now to get some shorts out. Well, dungarees.

Dungarees are an odd one. I feel they have a bit of a bad hype sometimes; that they should be kept for painters or 5 year olds. But dungarees can be surprisingly chic, and they seem to be cropping up more and more recently. I love this distressed pair from Rare London. I think they're perfect for summer, rather than sticking to boring old shorts, and I will definitely be taking mine on holiday with me this year. 

I paired these with my favourite striped Zara shirt I picked up in the Trafford Centre a few weeks back and added this cute Missguided camel mini trench jacket for a bit of colour and a bit of a 70's vibe (I know, I am way too 70's at the moment, but I can't help it. It's just too cool). I finished off this look with the comfiest chunky sandals ever from Public Desire. Plus, they compliment the jacket too well not to wear them to be honest.

Blue Jean Baby








Shirt - H&M  Jeggings - ASOS *  Bag - Zara  Heels - Topshop  Necklace - Love Silver*

I've never really been one for Jeggings. They always seemed like a bit of a lazy girls way of wearing skinny jeans to me. However, when I saw these were 'sculpt me' Jeggings, I was intrigued. Us girls always need/want a bit of sculpting, so I thought I would give these a go. And I love them! They are definitely more Jeans than Leggings, but just extra tight and stretchy. Plus, the blue colour is fab too and so on trend with the 70's look right now.

I pared these Jeggings with a laid back, pyjama vibe shirt from H&M's Trend section, my favourite place to shop at the moment, and a tassel clutch from Zara for some extra boho vibes. I for one am LOVING 70's at the moment, it's just perfect for summer and this rather nice weather we have been having too!

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?
