I’ve surrendered to OOTD.

Having said I would never partake in OOTD, I hold my hands up. I have surrendered to the craze, and here is my first offering. Now, I wish I had gone for something a little more exciting for my first one, but its my new pale blue cami that I mentioned a few posts ago, so I just had to sneak it in there! For me this is simple but classic.

I’m wearing Topshop Cami, Topshop Joni Jeans (Super stretchy, love love love these), Warehouse Jacket, Topshop Boots, Michael Kors Handbag, and Primark Necklace.

I love the back of this warehouse jacket, and people always stop me in the street and ask me where its from! Sorry for the awkward mirror shots! I haven’t yet found my camera that I lost somewhere in my room a while ago! I am also wearing no makeup and my hair isn’t done, but as its a far away shot I don’t really mind posting it on here.

I bought my Michael Kors bag a couple of weeks ago as a 22nd birthday present to myself, and I could not be happier with it. It was £260 which I think is pretty reasonable, and the quality has so far been amazing. It is made of Saffiano leather, which is one of my faves. Although it doesn’t have the softness of cow leather, it is really strong and you can tell its going to last for ages. Prada use it a lot too.

The boots aren’t as red as they appear in this pic – they’re more of a deep maroon. I got these for Christmas from my Dad (he didn’t pick them, I chose them!) and they are the most comfortable heels I have ever worn!

I’m off to lunch today with some work friends and then hopefully catching a bit of sunshine! Have a lovely weekend all xx

‘Top Marks’ and Spencer

Today I was walking through Marks and Spencer, and actually couldn’t believe the number of little old ladies I passed. Okay yes it is their holy grail, well, that and garden centres, but there was not a single young person about! Anyway, as I was dashing through the boot cut trousers and linen shirts (making a beeline for the food hall as always) I spotted some unusually stylish finds for such s grandma friendly haven.

I spotted these pastel ankle strap sandals at just £25.00 for from the limited collection range. How bang on are these?! I can hardly see even the most stylish of grannies prancing into book club in these, can you?!

And how about these colour block courts with Insolia, which works by shifting the weight from the ball of your foot onto your heel to enhance comfort and better body alignment. So basically, party friendly shoes! At last! Available in bluered, and black/white for just £55.00.

Finally, why not splash out on a pair of these sleek Italian leather court shoes that’ll last you ages. They will set you back £129, but with Insolia, they’ll be perfect for the office and the weekend. Available in caramel or nude. They’re slightly different styles, but equally classic and staple.

Bottoms Up!

Oh hi,

How are we? Yes, its Monday, and that’s lame, but there is plenty to be smiling about. 

After all, they say its the little things, and tonight I have chosen the pressing topic of trousers to bring to the table to discuss!

Anyone who shops in H&M will know they have had a range of printed trousers all at around £14.99 for a while now, and only recently have I been brave enough to give a pair a go. Now anyone with any sort of decent hip circumference will know that in that store you pretty much just have to go in there with your head held high, grab a pair of trousers about 5 sizes bigger than usual, and skuttle into the changing rooms chanting “they’re really a size 8, they’re really a size 8” when theyre really way into double digits. 

So, thats what I did, and I was pleasantly surprised. I picked up a pair of dark red, sort of carpet printed ankle length bottoms for just under 15 big ones, and have never looked back. Now yes, the old thigh area could do with being a little slimmer to fully make them work, but to be honest I do not care! They’re different, casual cool, and can be dressed up or down, AND they’re a sweet price. You might think they’re not your style, but its definitely worth a go. I’ll certainly be heading back down there and scooping up a few new pairs once the final student loan hits my bank account next week! (yes, final student loan. where did four years of financial salvation disappear to!?)

Anyway, not a long post tonight as its late and I have my fashion marketing portfolio to crack right on with early tomorrow!

Got a cracking post on dogs for you all soon. Tune in.

Oh, and here’s a snap of the carpet print trousers teamed with a slouchy H&M black jumper, Topshop chunky necklace and Russell and Bromley brogues. Image
