Topshop does some of the best-cropped T-shirts on the high street. This stripey get up will be moving into my summer wardrobe ASAP. Worn Over a turtleneck because German winters are no joke. Thermal socks worn under my jeans pulled to my knees helped keep me warm all holiday.

Düsseldorf Theatre Museum at sunset.
Pink sunsets in the pink city. Düsseldorf is a wonder of colourful delights, from the rainbow buildings, delicious food and friendly people we felt right at home.
packing only hand luggage is sometimes a nightmare when assembling outfits for a week. A lot of re-wearing happened during this Düsseldorf adventure. Trying to be creative in what I wear every day. To create something different proved a real challenge. Pairing these pink glittery SK8-HI Vans with the pink Theatre Museum was a highlight. As I love aesthetics and matching is my favourite thing. Ask Hayden.

Hey style lovers, quick question. When you get stressed does your style and effort in creating daily looks go right out the window? Mine does. I’m a style blogger that takes a photo of what I’m wearing that day. No pre-planning and shooting multiple looks a day. Maybe I should start doing that. Anyway, I’ve been swamped with university work and trying to finish early because Hayden and I are away on my hand in day. I’ve piled my plate rather high these past few weeks, and have been wearing the exact same thing day in day out apart from when I have work then it’s coffee-stained jeans and my uniform.
The last time I felt like I made an effort was when my Nanny came down. The outside of the Upside Down house was the perfect place to inject some colour and motivation back into my daily looks.

I’m always on the lookout for dresses that show off my legs. I’m hella tall 5ft10, an actual giant against most of the women in my family. That won’t stop me wearing short dresses to lengthen my legs further and to show them off. This H&M number (which is under £20 *high five*) is a transitional piece. Can be worn at the end of Summer all the way into Winter. The cuffed sleeves get the piece so much interest, the tied collar and ruffle allow for a little cleavage around the boobs. The loose fit makes the dress a more feminine style. It also has pockets ( angels singing in the background) Can’t believe how much I’m loving in H&M right now. The new seasonal pieces have really knocked me out of the park.
Teamed with a huge Topshop wool coat to get the balance between masculine and feminine that I try and create with every outfit.

I’ve explored so many castles and ruins in Dorset but never Durlston Castle in Swanage. Hayden and I went to have a walk with family and take in the castle. We set off from Swanage town, walking all the way up and over the cliffs to the Castle. Taking in the view of the Needles and Swanage Bay as we went. Do go see Durlston Castle because it is a beautiful place the views are amazing and get up to the top floor via the spiral staircase inside, the views up there are panoramic.

i off my outfit and not fall to pieces over hunger, messy hair and having walked up a steep hill.

Days off together are rare, we only get evenings or a few hours in the morning. When we do have a day off together we make the most of it. We did the quickest tour of Portsmouth you will ever see. H and I went to try out a new burger place, which turned out not to be worth the hype but we did go to Gunwharf Quays and do a little shopping. Well I did the shopping. A little purchase in Levis for a logo T shirt that I’ve wanted for so long and a little Furla wallet which is my new evening bag. We stood looking at all the yachts thanking each other for buying the biggest one we could see.
Remember the last post? The tartan trousers that I lorded above all other forms of trousers? Well I’ve just seen that New Look do them in red and black and white. I need to shake the hand of who ever decided to bring them to New Look because I still love them and will new go buy them in the two other colours.

Do you ever buy pieces and hope they stay in your life for ages and feel slightly sad as soon as you get them because you know other trousers just won’t cut it anymore? Jeans are ruined for me now. These New Look tartan trousers are the one. They are super comfy, look like smart trousers, are elasticised at the back, feel like pyjamas, still not decided if they actually are or not. Worn with a Cola jumper to keep the comfort level high. Heels to make an effort and red accessories.

This Next jumpsuit is from last year, do you remember this post? here. I’ve not really worn it since but wasn’t ready to part with it. I paired it with red accessories and a blazer to move it away from a wedding guest look.

Those ladies you see who wear the comfy ‘safe’ black leather pumps, are the real winners in life. I NEEDED new shoes for work and looked all over the high street. I found nothing, I went into Marks & Sparks on the off chance these would be a pair of shoes for me. There were so many pairs I’d wear as trend pieces. These are the best shoes ever.
This little red number is the replacement bag for my Sandra Rhodes bag that got destroyed at Slam Dunk. A bright red Yumi shoulder bag that fits everything perfectly without being a duffle bag. The gold detailing is very different from what I normally go for but am obsessed with it.
