I have worked near the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham for over two years and it has taken me until this week to actually go and look in the shops.
This was lethal on payday as you naturally feel as though you have much more money to spend… So it probably won’t come a surprise to you that I managed to make a purchase.
I have been looking for a rose gold watch with a leather strap as I’m not a huge fan of the bling, metal-strapped watches that seem to be popular at the moment. Anyway- I managed to find a nicely discounted, rose gold, DKNY watch. So now I am a happy woman!
Thought I would compile a little post describing last night’s outfit for you all.
I wanted something that wasn’t too hot (as it was boiling last night) and something that looked pretty chic. Monochrome is at the top of my list at the moment.
With this in mind, I chose a tweed black and white mini skirt to complement a black cowl neck top. The skirt is an old Topshop number accompanying a Matalan top; that I actually wear for work most of the time!
To add a touch of colour I opted for my green Whistles clutch bag and dug out my Next black court shoes (extra pointy), which are one of my fail safe options.
I’m still liking my dip dye but I will be going a little darker soon in preparation for Autumn/Winter 2014. Will post photos as soon as its done!
It is mostly their style and attitude to life that draws me to them and of course the films/ tv shows that they are involved in.
I went to see Maleficent last night and it rekindled my love for the adorable Elle Fanning. It also reminded me how amazing Angelina Jolie is, but she didn’t quite make the top four!
Emma Stone has been a style icon of mine for a while now, and the fact that her and Andrew Garfield are so amazing together makes her even more interesting.
Jennifer Lawrence is an absolute babe. She basically tells all the pressures of being a celebrity to swivel, such as looking like a scarecrow (which were her words). I love her fun loving attitude to life and her style, which portrays her personality through and through.
I thought i’d share another outfit with you that I wore last night to the pub. Yes it sounds like I am always down the pub, but I don’t drink. I promise!
I sometimes find it more challenging to put together a slightly casual but dressy outfit as I normally like to wear skirts and dresses. But for things like this, I find dresses are a bit much and aren’t warm enough for sitting in the beer garden.
The lace insert blouse was from Primark a few years ago and the light blue jacket is from Zara. The jeans are from TK Maxx, but they’re not really jeans that I like to wear often.
I seem to want to wear my vintage looking Topshop necklace with everything these days. I think I need to find some more jewellery…
I thought i’d share last nights outfit with you in case you were interested.
My boyfriends family had a nice get together so I wanted something comfy (for eating lots of food!) but something quite on trend also.
I opted for my Primark trousers/leggings, which are actually much thicker than standard leggings and are super comfortable. I teamed them with my old favourite; my Whistles wisteria print silk blouse and my vintage look necklace from Topshop.
To add some more colour I picked up my green Whistles clutch and added my ASOS leather jacket to keep the rain off.
I really love bloc colours at the moment which is why my Whistles clutch was such a good buy for me. I seem to use it with everything and it is surprising what it looks good with (in my opinion). Coral is another colour that I keep being drawn to along with bright pink, so if you feel a bit drab then reaching for one of these shades is likely to add some zest!
Took a lovely trip to London yesterday. Just fancied seeing some of the sights and pretending I live in the beautiful district of Kensington.
On arrival my friend took me to an amazing cafe/ patisserie called Paul. It was just amazing. I had peach iced tea and a superfood salad with spinach, cous cous, cranberries and orange.
After feeling suitably full we popped into Harrods to see how the other half live. To be honest, we didn’t know where to begin. The food hall including the chocolate and specialist teas was the first stop.
The clothes were just beautiful but excruciatingly expensive as always. So I took to purring over the latest Christopher Kane collection for some comfort!
And if that wasn’t enough, we made our way to the Victoria and Albert museum to look around the fashion section which was stunning!
Here are a few of my favourite people (outfits) from this year’s Met Gala.
Going clockwise from the top left we have Suki Waterhouse looking very frilly to say the least. Then we have Rihanna and Cara Delevingne captured during a friendly catch up! The Hollywood golden couple: Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield look picture perfect as always and Kendal Jenner looks infinitely more mature than 18 in that amazing cream ball gown.
