Small Shades

Anyone else jumped on the small sunglasses trend? I tried the trend with these Romwe ones that were super inexpensive. If I become a fully fledged member of the Small Shades Gang I’ll be investing in some more. The black ones are really easy to wear. I got them in red too, but haven’t found the right moment to wear them yet. They are so much harder to style. I’m feeling all kinds of confident and am really excited to develop some great looks for summer.

My aim for the summer is to save some $$ to move out this year and get to the beach. I’m also interning over summer, possibly going to Italy and having a few stay-cations.
What are your plans for summer? Are you working or spending it sat on the beach somewhere?

Body Positivity

Aren’t smart trousers everywhere? I finally found a pair that are cropped and a little different to the pattern you see everywhere. I wore them all day and they were the comfiest pair of smart trousers that I think I’ve ever worn. Added a V neck jumper and some leopard print court shoes. SS/18 is all about interesting heels and the heel in these shoes are so chunky but with a tapered edge.

And yeah you can see my tummy in this jumper, so what. I felt great in this outfit and don’t really care that you can see my tummy. I think I look cute and sassy and that’s all that matters. Move on.

Lace Dress by the River

I challenged myself with every element of this outfit. Having so much bare leg on show, huge hoop earrings and a white lace dress. I’ve never felt more etherial then I do in this dress. The lace dress has been sitting in my wardrobe for over 2 years not doing anything. I loved it as soon as I saw it but never had the balls to wear it out.

A super summer statement with gold accents. My shoes are so perfect, I wish I bought more then one pair of from Next’s clearance and big gold hoops which i bought for a halloween costume and have since migrated to my everyday jewellery and a Bill Skinner cat ring.

Red Pea Coat

DSCN1393

I’m a coat hoarder, I collect coats like they are going out of fashion (I hope not). This Long Tall Sally coat I scored in a charity shop is my latest addition. A mix between a pea coat and a trench and a gorgeous red pink. Slightly pinched at the waist to give me a little shape and the long sleeves. Being a tall girl means that sleeves are always short on me. but Long Tall Sally cater to the tall girl which is perfect for me as I’m 5 10.DSCN1392 DSCN1391

The knitted texture kept me warm on my beach walk with Stacey. DSCN1394

The Winter Cape

DSCN0987

This cape is everything to me this season. I love swaddling myself in soft warm fabric to keep out the winters wind. The colours are perfect for pairing with anything, winter dresses, trousers, blue jeans. It just works. DSCN0988 DSCN0989 DSCN0990 DSCN0991 DSCN0992

Oranges

DSCN0421-001I love bright colours but never really liked to wear bright orange, that all changed when I saw these Topshop flats the other day. I posted a picture of me trying on the blue ones maybe 6 months ago, on Instagram, but never bought them. I wasn’t going to miss them second time around. They were in the sale too!!
