WINTER WARMERS: MY TOP PICKS FROM THE HIGH STREET

Jacket: Zara   Jumper: Primark    Jeans: Topshop     Boots: Marks and Spencers  Handbag: Charity Shop Warm coats, colourful jumpers and knitted scarves are my favourite part of autumn and winter. There’s just something I love about wrapping up on colder days with lots of layers. But just because the weather outside is a little on the dull side, doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to be too. I’ve mentioned this before but 2017 was the year I re-introduced colour into my wardrobe, and I’m going to tell you now 2018 ain’t going to be any different – it’s probably going to be…

Jewellery Box: Finding affordable silver jewellery pieces

Now I’m the type of person who when it comes to jewellery it’s all or nothing. I either have really big bold statement necklaces and earrings, or super small and dainty jewellery. It’s rare I go for anything that’s kind of in the middle. So when Jewellery box got in touch asking if I’d like to try some of their pieces I thought this would be a great chance to try something different. But typical me I opted for my usual dainty bits of silver jewellery as they had so many beautiful pieces it was daft to choose anything different.…

Feeling Fuchsia: Finally embracing colour in my wardrobe

These photos were taken by Yasmina on our recent trip to Liverpool for the CarnLIVal event. We were a little early for the event so decided to take advantage of the gorgeous Liverpool Philharmonic Hall on Hope Street. I must say this is probably the most public place I’ve ever taken photos as I usually hide down a quiet side street. But I really pushed myself to stand in the middle of a fairly busy street of an unknown city and I really think they paid off! Top: Primark (similar) Trousers: New Look Shoes: Matalan Handbag: Primark (similar) Watch – Rosefield* I think these…

Secondhand Style #1 – What an egg-cellent dress

As I mentioned in this post the majority of my wardrobe has been bought in charity shops, eBay and Depop. As a huge bargain hunter and savvy secondhand searcher, I want to start featuring these more often in my outfit posts. So I’ve decided to begin a little feature called Secondhand Style so you can see all the fab bits and bobs I’ve managed to pick up, and believe me there are loads.  I thought there would be no better way to start this off than with my best Depop purchase to date. The White Pepper was one of my favourite…

Why I Love Charity Shops

If you didn’t know it already I am a huge fan of Charity Shops, which is quite handy seeing as I’m an Assistant Manager of one. But rewind about 5 years and I think I’d stepped foot in a charity shop once. This was around the time I was 15-16 and I wanted to be Kate Nash and thought ‘thrifting’ was mega cool. But it wasn’t until I started volunteering in a charity shop in my second year of university that I really started to fall in love with them. Fast forward to the present day and I reckon about…

Taking The Time To Find Yourself.

You probably all know this already, but I’ve struggled with self-confidence issues for a while now as my ass has grown considerable amounts over the past couple of years. Basically, I’m always moaning about hating the majority of my clothes, rarely feeling good in anything and always feel as though I am having a style crisis.  A few weeks ago it occurred to me that it was less about not knowing what clothes I like, but more about not feeling comfortable in anything anymore. Especially when it comes to the clothes I really want to wear. Does anybody else live…

Leopard Loving and My Ever-Growing Coat Collection.

Coat: Primark  Top: Primark Skirt: Anita and Green Bag: Primark Shoes: Vagabond   📷 Yasmina As soon as I saw this coat on the Primark press photos I knew I wouldn’t be able to rest until it was mine. Every time I stepped foot in my local store I would hunt around the coat section hoping it would be there without any luck for weeks. Then low and behold on my last trip to the store I saw two women trying the coat on right there in front of me and I knew the time had come. So I raced up…

Getting Autumn Ready With Zaful.

📷 Chloe As I’ve mentioned before I’m a huge fan of Autumn fashion, so when Zaful contacted me asking if I’d like to review some of their clothes I knew this was a perfect opportunity for me to update my wardrobe for the new season ahead. After packing up my summer wardrobe and bringing out all my knitwear I realised there was a lack of autumn dresses in my wardrobe, as most of my dresses now are sleeveless. Does anybody else find it hard to get dresses that have sleeves these days?  So when I spotted this leaf print dress I knew…

Autumn Updates ft Primark and New Look.

If you didn’t know already Autumn is my favourite season of all time. To be honest, those ‘in-between-y’ seasons always attract me the most, when the weather begins to change slightly, but you’re not too hot nor too cold. I woke up last week and was thrilled to feel a chill in the flat and had to pop the heating on the timer again and wrap myself up in a jumper before heading out to work. As much as I love the idea of warm weather, when summer arrives I’m forever stressing about what to wear as I’m not that…

Confessions Of A Brogue Addict.

If I was told I could only choose one style of shoes to wear for the rest of my life, I’d always pick brogues. Every single time. I don’t know what it is about this style of shoe but my wardrobe has always been full of them, in every colour possible. They’re just that perfect shoe that goes with everything, from jeans to dresses, from skirts to shorts, they just look good all year around.  Now, most of my brogues now are quite dark and wintery, as my summery ones are slowly making their way into the bin as they’re…

On Wednesday We Wear Pink.

📷 : Helen & Chloe Jacket: Zara     Top: Boohoo     Jeans: Asos     Boots: *George      Bag: Primark Ever since I first laid my eyes on this baby pink Zara biker jacket, I knew it had to be mine. Initially, I’d seen it in a mustard yellow, however already owning a similar suede mustard jacket from Missguided I decided to let it pass. Then the pink one was released and that was it. After weeks of checking daily (I kid you not) it finally came back in stock and I ordered it at such speed the delivery address was for Alice Alice. This was…

Springtime Wishlist

It’s official, I have fallen in love with a jacket and I don’t know if I can survive without it in my life. This Zara faux leather biker jacket popped up on my radar recently and it’s inspired me to create some springtime outfits featuring pops of pink. If you can’t tell already I’m a huge lover of stripes and its my favourite pattern to team with statement jackets and this striped tee would look perfect teamed with a cream pinafore dress, these silver platform trainers and this super sparkly cross-body bag for a fun spring time look. Now whenever I’ve worn stripes I’ve always…
