So we've been having the most glorious weather in a long time the last few days in the UK, so what better time to buy some knitwear, right? Well, when it's as good as this Gucci-esque beauty, hell yes. Did I sweat my ass off whilst shooting these? Yes. Did I care? Absolutely not. We all know that this slight wave of summer we are having is going to be short lived, and this jumper is going to be a must on those chilly summer nights.
I don't really pay much attention to the 'typical' way of doing things. I don't stick to rules or regulations when it comes to dressing. I wear what pops into my head and what I like wearing. That's just me. So I am going to show you three ways that I like to mix and match my prints.
As a blogger I sometimes feel like there is a little pressure or an expectation to have something new. All.the.time. God forbid we wear the same item in more than 1 photo. 2 is a crime to fashion humanity. Unless it's a designer bag or shoes, because we all know about the cost per wear blablabla...
Can you believe that in all the years of living so close to Liverpool I've never been to Aintree before?! How I have gone so long without paying a visit I do not know. I've just lived it through the annual Daily Mail articles of best and (mainly) worst dressed. So when the girls at PrettyLittleThing offered me a chance to go I just had to snap it up!
A girl really can never have too many pairs of shoes. We tell ourselves this over and over, each time we buy a new pair we feel the need to justify it. We might already have 8 pairs of black boots but we still need that other pair, because each one is slightly different. Well I'm over trying to justify accessories. I've got more heels, boots, flats and trainers than you can shake a stick at and I love it. They make me happy. As do these absolute beauties from New Look.
How beautiful are they and for the price they're even better! These are such a bargain and this style shoe is everywhere at the moment thanks to the Chanel mule, but these are the best alternative I've found to date. And they're actually really comfortable too! I love the colour, it's a nude but also seems slightly off pink next to my pink shirt.
I paired these mules with these amazing frayed hem jeans. I had been after the perfect pair of light coloured boyfriend jeans for so long and I have found the ones. I tried on so many pairs and they just didn't fit right, but these are actually perfect. They're flattering, nice and high waisted and LONG! Ankle grazers that actually go to the ankle of someone who is 5'10 are very hard to come by, so well done New Look!
Another amazing pick is this trench coat and you won't believe it when I say it's under £40. It's so beautifully made and looks super expensive! This whole outfit has really turned me into a New Look fiend. Their footwear collection right now is probably the best around and the choice online is just amazing. I know that each of these items will be featuring regularly in my wardrobe. You can check out all of New Look's amazing shoe range here.

Today was definitely one of the most beautiful days of the year so far. It started to feel properly like summer and it was actually warm enough to get my legs out without looking like a bit of a nutter. So I decided it was the perfect day to get my new trench coat out too. I know that sounds a bit mad as I've just mentioned the weather, but I think this lightweight mac is perfect for summer. It's nice and thin and the gingham print gives it a nice spring/summer feel.
