The Oversized Blouse

Made a new purchase yesterday (naughty); but I’m sure it was worth it.

I’ve been looking for an oversized blouse for a while now, to wear with skinny jeans and heels, and this Topshop sailor inspired piece is perfect.

I found some old black skinny jeans that had been lost for a while last weekend, so my outfit came together quite nicely. Of course my trusty Next court shoes had to be involved.

I accessorized with a gold Coast necklace and a New Look clutch bag. I wore a dark burgundy/purple YSL lipstick (which you can’t see very well in the photo) as it complements navy and other darker shades. 

My hair was straight with big brows and lots of mascara.

Currently thinking of other ways to style this blouse so another post may be needed!!

Date Night

Had a lovely meal with my boyfriend this evening. Here is my outfit!

image

A super soft vest top from Topshop teamed with some comfy boyfriend style jeans from River Island (purchased today).

I accessorized with my trusty Next pointed courts and my Marc Jacobs watch.

As we had a pub dinner I needed a dressy/casual outfit, hence my choice of jeans and heels.

Hope you all like.

Hey

I let my hair dry by itself a lot at the moment and it goes all wavy. I kinda like it so here is a picture for you! I think its good for the hair too as I’m not using straighteners/curlers to achieve this look.

Finery London

A new brand has stormed onto the British high street into the realms of big names such as Reiss and Whistles, but with a more unique boutique feel.

Two former directors from ASOS and Topshop have teamed up to make a brand that culminates the extensive experience of both founders to bring us cutting edge, high end clothing at a more affordable price (but I wouldn’t say cheap).

The current collection consists of gorgeous minimalist styles incorporating bloc colors and simple textures with elegant shapes and gorgeous fabrics. The shoes are equally on trend with bloc color sandals being the key style accessory of the collection.

This brand is perfect for a savvy fashionista looking to invest in timeless pieces, who is not afraid to stand out a little. My favorite garment in the current collection is the red shirt dress that is perfectly girly yet minimalist and modern.

Quotes

This has got to be one of the sweetest quotes from Winnie The Pooh. I just had to share it. 

‘If ever there is a tomorrow when we’re not together… There is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart…I’ll always be with you’ A. A. Milne

70s Vibes

A big trend taking 2015 by storm is 70s boho chic. Given the rise of skinny jeans it seems medieval to even wear boot cut trousers let alone flares- but somehow it feels modern, as trends from the catwalk always do.

I’m on a budget this month so wanted to treat myself to something with a 70s hue without breaking the bank. To my delight the January sales are still in full swing on some websites, such as Mango; so I ordered a cute paisley shirt for less than £20.

I teamed it with my gorgeous faux fur gilet from Zara and some H&M skinny jeans for a shopping trip with my mum yesterday.

Considering the bell bottom come back, I couldn’t resist ordering some flares and ASOS had a few bargains to suit my budget at £35. I haven’t worn them yet so when I do I will be sure to do a post! I might even style them up with my new paisley blouse…
