Burnt Orange is the new Black







Top - Zara  Pants - Zara  Blazer - Zara  Bag - Sandro  Heels - Zara  Sunglasses - Westward Leaning

Although the title may not suggest, the main feature of this post is the bag. THE bag. This Sandro Paris baby caught my eye the second I saw in on the rail whilst browsing on my holiday in Marbella. The colour, the silver, the simplicity, I needed it. And I didn't get it. And I instantly regretted it when I landed back in the UK. There isn't many places around here that sell Sandro, and I thought I had missed my shot. Then, much to my delight, my parents surprised me with this on their return from their own holiday; lucky me! It's gone straight to the top of my favourite bags list. 

Other than the bag, I am wearing head to toe Zara, rather embarrassingly! But I had to get me some AW14 pieces, and this Stella McCartney esque leopard print top had me straight away. I love the burnt orange/beige colour and it goes with my last year's Zara blazer perfectly. However, I am not 100% convinced by the pants as of yet. On the website, I was in love. The print reminded me of a pretty feather pattern. When they are on, not so much. I feel like they are not as flattering as I would have hoped, and since I am not blessed with twig-like calves like most Zara models, they don't sit as I imagined. But I can't decide. What do you guys think?

50 Shades of Grey





Jacket - Zara  Jeans - ASOS  Bag - Zara  Mules - Zara

Summer seems to have been and gone quicker than ever this year. And now that both my holidays are well and truly over, I am feeling as gloomy as these shots. Shooting in twilight is pretty tricky, but even though these aren't the best quality shots, I feel they fit the mood just right. 

It may be getting grey, but it's not quite cold yet. So I decided to team up my grey moleskin Zara waistcoat with some plain white jeans and a Tee. A simple outfit that, with some black accents thrown in, looks a little less boring. I decided to clinch this waistcoat in for a change, and I used a belt from a Zara sale buy crop. I actually bought the top mainly for the belt, as I knew it would go with so many things as a more slouched and relaxed play on a belt.

I kept this simple with all plain black accessories and dusted off my old Zara shopper to finish off the slightly androgynous look.

You, Me, Oui




Top - Fall in Love Fashion*  Skort - Fall in Love Fashion* Shoes - Zara  Necklace - Smashglam

I have been wanting to show you this gorgeous necklace for a while now and couldn't quite put my finger on an outfit that I wanted to go with it. However, when I received these pink shorts from Fall in Love Fashion, I knew that's what I would pair it with. This necklace is so unique and playful, and the mix of colours is perfect for summer! Smashglam also have a matching bracelet and some fab clutch bags, so be sure to check out their website here.

I wanted to keep this outfit pretty chilled, as my last shorts post was more dressed up, and I wanted to show a more dressed down, laid back look that I would put together with a pair of tailored shorts. I decided to pair these lovely baby pink shorts with a logo'd plain white tee to keep the rest of the outfit pretty simple. Fall in Love Fashion have some great logo t-shirts at fab prices so I will definitely be checking out their website from now on! I threw on my baby blue Zara heels to pick out some of the colour in the necklace and they also match my nails, which makes me feel slighty happy inside if I have nails matching my outfit.

Petals and Prints





Shorts - Sheinside*  Shirt - Sheinside*  Belt - ASOS  Heels - Zara  Sunglasses - Zara

The sun is shining and the shorts are out. These particular ones are a Zara-esque pick from the wonderful Sheinside. And they are a summer staple. I love the mixtures of the pinks and reds; I always used to think that pink and red went with a 'red and green should never be seen' kind of rule. But I think fashion rules should be broken and these shorts are too cute for summer. 

I paired these with a polka dot shirt, also a Sheinside special. I have wanted a polka-dot shirt as it is such a wardrobe classic and will go with anything! I love the collarless style and the front pockets. I decided to break it up a little with my absolute BARGAIN of a purchase in the form of this ASOS belt, at the grand total of £3.50. I picked out the silver on the belt with these Zara heels I picked up in Spain, having searched for them everywhere over here! I think these shorts would look fab with flats too, and a tailored short can be really versatile, dressed up or down.

Holiday lookbook: Part 1





Top - Zara  Skirt - River Island  Bag - H&M  Sandals - Zara  Bracelet - ChloBo  Sunglasses - Westward Leaning

You would think being on holiday I could have at least smiled in one of these photo's. I was happy, honest!  And no matter how much I think I am doing a non-goofy, cool and totally hip blogger pose smile, I just succumb to 'resting bitch face'. But anyway, apologies for that! Here is part one of my holiday style diary. I had a pretty chilled out holiday in Marbella this year, so there wasn't a pair of heels in sight (apart from a gorgeous pair my boyfriend snapped up in the Zara sale as a birthday present, but more about those later). 

This top was a great sale find from Zara. I loved the floaty material and the palm print and colours, and I thought it would be perfect on holiday. I decided to go for clashing prints in the form of this River Island skort. This has to be one of my favourite buys of the year, I think it's so flattering and I am such a sucker for black and white; I can't resist! It's just so classy and easy to pair with items. Unfortunately this Zara top has sold out online, and I did snap up this skort in the sale on River Island, but you can still find it full price here.

I kept this item casual with a pair of last year's Zara silver and white sandals and my trusty Westward Leaning sunnies; these babies never fail me. My bangle was a present from my parents trip to Morocco a few months back and I thought the turquoise stone complimented the top perfectly and I wanted to keep accessories to a minimum, so it seemed perfect.

Mustard




Trousers - Closet Clothing*  Jumper - Zara  Jacket - Whistles  Shoes - Zara  Bag - H&M  Sunglasses - ASOS

Here is a super quick post to show you guys these gorgeous Closet Clothing pants I received a few weeks back. These are so gorgeous and perfect for summer, and the lovely tailored style looks great with either flats or heels. The material is really nice and thick too.

This is a pretty casual outfit that I've put together. I decided to throw on my Zara sliders for a day time look and added a splash of colour with my new favourite Zara sale buy, this mustard yellow jumper. I had my eye on this sleeveless knit for a while and when it came in the sale I just had to get it! It's such a great colour and I love the high neck. This is my last post for a week or so as I am off on holiday, but I will be doing a holiday style diary when I get back to show you guys some of my holiday looks, so keep posted!
