By now you lovely readers should know that I love shoes, like really love them. If I see a pair of shoes that I love I have to have them. This is what happened the other day. My mum showed me there beauties and I fell in love ( I totally blame her ) 😉
Nude, metal, block heel, t bar, buckle, everything is perfect about this shoe. Oh and did I mention they are super comfortable, I could easily do a marathon shopping session in these. These shoes have to be worn with one of my favourite colours, blue. The metal is totally off set and beautiful against my navy jacquard skirt. Of course I couldn’t wear head to toe blue everyday ( even though I love to try) This Zara top is so light and the oversized sleeves are perfect for when the sun finally comes out. Trying so hard to be Parisian, I can dream.
this hexagonal necklace is so perfect, delicate and masculine at the same time, I do love a contrast. I wore

Thank you for reading XO
this quilted reversable jacket is a little vintage number my mum picked up. It’s to most light weight cosiest jacket I’ve ever worn.
I can’t decide which side I like the most!
I got a little crazy and bought yet another handbag ( i really should be saving, i have adventures to go on) I couldn’t help myself. Nautical and tiny. I can’t describe this pattern any other way then, water and ink. I LOVE this top the two layers, the slit in the back. The colours and everything, there are small hints of yellow. I’ve been wearing my most recent monthly favourites shoes all the time. Brogues and turned up jeans!!

To say I’m a shoe addict would be an understatement, I bought a new pair of shoes today even. But I want to talk to you about these shoes.I love these Hunter sandals, the jell of the shoe moulds to you feet and sticks like glue, which makes them the easiest to walk in. Also the colour!! I love, love, love fuchsia, a huge pop of colour to my outfit. I really wanted to make my shoes the focus point of this look.

Over sized T’s and cropped trackies are my go to uniform when I’ve finished work. I’d happily walk out onto the street wearing this Gap pair. The added details make them just that little bit special. Stopping short of the ankle is perfect for wearing converse, I love wearing mine.
Feeling sassy!How ‘fancy’ is my back garden with an oil drum in the back.
At home there is totally no need for me to do my hair ( accurate representation of me life) guys honestly my hair isn’t orange IRL

I love wearing white shirts, but can i get a photo of them with out them looking like a ghost. No, no I can’t!
Any was I decided to be confident today and wear shorts in public, I’m a very conscious person and over thing everything, showing off a feature of my body that i’m not totally comfortable with is very daunting. Having not been blessed in the butt department and given more them my share in legs, shorts always fit a little oddly, but I LOVE this little blue number. The cheapest pair of shorts in the whole world.
I’ve finally fallen back in love with jewellery, thank goodness. My jewellery collection is to vast not to wear.

These pajama trousers are so comfy, they were perfect walking around Paris. I didn’t plan to wear a totally black outfit so chose to wear this look on the coolest day. It was still about 20 something.
I love pompoms, this Topshop pompom overlay top is perfect, I tried it on right in the middle of the shop. Even a pompom on my bag. To say I’m obsessed would be an understatement. Can we just admire these sunglasses for a sec. I love mirrored shades and these make me feel super ‘cool’. I call these me space bounty hunter shades.

Aren’t these beach huts adorable, They have been redecorated by Cath Kinston to brighten up peoples day, as part of the #RandomActsofKidston. You’ll find them on the promenade on Bournemouth beach. I believe that these are the key summer prints.
Every time I go into Cath Kidston I have to buy something because it’s all beautiful. I love their home wear. But what really makes me fall in love with Cath Kinston are the accessorise. The purses and bags that have the most lovely patterns on, just make an item that extra special.
How to wear knits in summer. I love this knitted cross over top, it’s so perfect for cooler summer days, I paired it with jeans and of course and my Lulu Guinness. I completely forgot to put my shades on to show you, but they are so gorgeous. I love mirrored sunglasses and saw these on Venz Edits and fell in love.

The day I ate snails for the first time ever.
L’Escargot is an absolute gem, we jumped off the train right next to Nelson Mandela’s Garden and found our way there. You really can’t miss this place, it’s got gold snails all over it.
Stumbling over my French we opted to dine outside, our waiter seemed quite please that I at least tried my hand at French.
These snails were amazing, the texture and look of a mushroom with an amazing kick of garlic. Of course we dipped our bread into the juice to lap up the flavour, not wanting to miss a single drop.
I got the deliciously huge steak medium to well done, the juiciest steak I’ve ever eaten. Nothing at all like the steak in England. Chlo’ went for the Haddock with radishes. We kept eyeing each others plates, and being totally gluttonous we swapped plates. The Haddock was a total surprise, a sweet taste with a creamy sauce. I’ve never had sweet fish before, it was a success.
Creme brûlée for pudding. I love creaking the top, it’s so satisfying. The sweet crunch mixed with the creaming insides, perfection.
N.B: Arrive before 2 like we did and take up the starter and main or main and pudding option €17.50 do sit outside if you can and people watch all the tourists and Parisians going about their day. The whole place is effortlessly chic and decadent. Chandeliers, gold detailing hanging vines that wind their way inside, snail details on the walls and glasses.
Trip advisor give L’Escargot a 4/5. I give it a 5/5

Yesterday I came back from my four day adventure in Paris. The weather was amazing and about 30 degrees which meant that I could fully commit to the holiday outfit look.
This palm top is a high-low but I love it tucked in, gives me a bit more of a shape. I wore this look around Disney Paris on one of the hotter days. My Camo Converse are the most comfortable choice for the day, I wore them the whole trip.
The stone cuff is a nice detail for me making the whole look more tribal. The ring and the layered necklace are both from Naf Naf. Which was one of my favourite brands when I was younger. We stopped into the Champs Elysees store and picked them up.
I added a little blue to my eyeliner, what can I say, holiday fever!
skirt – Oasis
Top – H&M
trainers – Converse
Sunglasses – New Look
Ring / Necklace – Naf Naf
bag – Fiorelli
This is my favourite look from the holiday.
Does anyone have a packing process? I do, I like to create outfits lay them out on my bed add accessories and shoes then finally I think about what make up I’d add. It’s a long winded process but I love playing around and creating new looks.
This is about as essential as my packing gets, everything I need for a trip away. ( – a tooth brush)
I’ve heard that it’s going to be a heat wave in Paris, and I’ve managed to to pack mainly dark pieces. When I go away ( which isn’t every often, to make it that little extra special I take my favourite undies)
Footies are an absolute must when wearing flats in the heat, and these lace ones are so delicate.
When I first started packing my make up I totally over packed. Pallets and brushes, more then once mascara, a foundation and a bb cream. It was way to much. Above is all the make up I’m taking, aren’t you guys proud?
Urban Decay/ Clinique / No7 / Rimmel / Front Cover
The only Jewellery I’m thinking of taking at them moment.
Forever 21 / Mona Mara
Of course you have to take some spending money, no matter your budget you can always find something special to buy in Paris. Don’t forget your passport!
NB: I will post more style posts I promise, this is a style blog after all! xx
