OUTFIT | SHARP AS A KNIFE


I loveee this bright “skort” ("Skirt/Short") piece from Zara! I’ve seen images of it floating around on the blogosphere and I really liked its clean lines & unique cut. 

 I’ve only seen it in two other colours (White & Blue) but I loved the orange. It was also very reasonably priced and I was really surprised! I paired it with my knitted jumper that I got from my last holiday to Portugal, for a lil bit of texture.

I think I’m doing reasonably well with my ‘wear more bright colours’ challenge that I set myself ha!

This week has been rather fun for me, I’ve started at my new job as the manager of marketing and advertising for a really cool brand. It’s been great so far! The dress code is smart but with a casual/stylish edge, so hopefully I’ll be able to buy some clothes... For ‘work’ purposes obviously! Any excuse ey? J

Hoping you are all well today!

STYLE | TODAY I WISH I WORE

Untitled #44

Stay on trend and keep it simple this summer with some cool white brights!

I am really loving white pieces at the moment, particularly white shoes. They're such breath of fresh air and add a clean finish to any outfit. 
This is definitely a more of a calm, dressed down look perfect for a casual summers day. In this heat, there is absolutely no need to layer on clothes. So, I'm looking to keep it simple with the outfits and makeup this season.

I have a few more cheeky outfit posts from a recent haul. Looking forward to showing you all soon.

OUTFIT | LEATHER LOVING


The simplicity and edginess of this is black "pleather" dress I found in Toppers recently really grabbed my attention. No questions asked, I just picked it up and headed for the tills (terrible I know). 

I rarely find cool pieces that are great quality and customised to fit tall girls, so I always jump at the opportunity. It sits ever so perfectly above the knee and I really like the loose fit. It's very soft and surprisingly comfortable (even though it looks the complete opposite). 

Happy Monday! I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful weather!

OUTFIT | SUMMER BRIGHTS

Hi Everyone,
 
Hope you are all enjoying the lovely sunshine. I’m so happy that the weather has finally decided to behave itself and treat us all to some heat!
This year, I’ve been trying to come out of my little comfort zone with my outfit choices, so I promised myself to wear all of my fave pieces before the sunshine fades away.
As you all know, I do love my dark/neutral colours for outfits and make up looks. I’ve become so comfortable with these colours over the years, so I thought I’d go for a little change this summer, be brave and sport some bright/fun colours.
 
As soon as I saw these shorts, I fell in love and picked them up straight away! They’re so girly and flirty, plus they are very different to colours that I normally choose. What do you guys think? Summer brights are definitely the way forward this season! J
