Back To School











*Gingham shirt: c/o CHOIES / Slogan tee, Running trainers: ZARA / Leather look shorts: ASOS / Necklace: TOPSHOP

September marks the start of a new school year and although I don't go back to university until October 6th (longest summer ever or what?!) I thought I'd do an outfit post featuring my idea of a perfect "back to school" outfit. The shirt is so laid back and comfortable with a kind of "indie" vibe layered over the slogan tee. Teamed with the leather shorts, it creates a comfy yet edgy look, a great outfit for brightening up the back to school blues. Good luck to everyone who is starting university or college this month!

#NextLFWModel Competition

If you are part of the Next Blogger Network you may have seen that they are running an absolutely fabulous competition in celebration of LFW, with the prize of a trip to London for two and £200 of clothes! This was one of those competitions I couldn't resist and was definitely right up my street. All you have to do is choose your favourite model and design an outfit for them using clothes from Next and upload it to the network before 29th September.

Of course I chose the beautiful Suki Waterhouse as my favourite model (I'm sure you all could have guessed that if you follow my instagram!!) Suki's style is quite feminine with a grungy twist which is why I chose the clashing checks; the dress in itself is quite girly but teamed with the clashing checks in the coat and the leather boots, it definitely has a bit of an edge. Suki is the queen of coats so I'm sure she could pull everything off in this look perfectly.

Dark Nights

 






*Dark nights floral bell sleeved kimono c/o OH MY LOVE / *Crystal cut pendant: c/o LOLA AND GRACE / Skinny ripped jeans, High necked top: TOPSHOP / Boots: PUBLIC DESIRE

For me, kimonos are a wardrobe essential; they're so easy to wear, perfect for throwing on over the top of virtually any outfit. This beautiful floral printed kimono is from Oh My Love and it is everything you could want in an A/W light jacket, for those days that aren't quite warm and aren't quite cool, which there are a heck of a lot of at this time of year!

Dark Florals







*Floral blouse: ANGEL EYE LONDON / Leather look shorts: ASOS / Strappy sandals: NEW LOOK / Watch: RIVER ISLAND

Usually, floaty feminine styles aren't what I feel comfortable in but this floral blouse from AngelEye London is the perfect balance between feminine and edgy. I love how the print is that bit darker than your typical floral style and when teamed with the leather shorts it definitely has a bit of an edge to it which is essential for me in outfits like this. I'm also wearing my little elephant bracelet that I picked up while I was in Rhodes with Karl a few weeks ago; isn't it adorable?

Fancy Monochrome









*Patterned dress: c/o ANGEL EYE LONDON / Fur gilet: TOPSHOP / *Necklace and *Bracelets: c/o LOLA AND GRACE / Shoes: ZIGN via ZALANDO / *Limeade Milly bag: c/o MYBAG.COM

Just about every girl in the blogosphere is a big sucker for monochrome and I am no exception, especially when it comes in the form of a beautiful patterned dress like this one from Angel Eye London. It's such an "easy-to-wear" piece and can be dressed down with the fur gilet and bag or dressed up with strappy sandals and glitzy accessories. It's like a classic LBD but with a fun twist with the quirky pattern. As you can see the fur has made a reappearance which makes me SUPER excited; the fur is out, X Factor has started - Christmas is officially on its way ha!

Palazzo










Floral palazzo trousers: MISSGUIDED / Ribbed top: NEW LOOK / Wedges: ASOS / Floppy hat: PRIMARK / Long necklace: BOOHOO

The shops and websites are teaming with wide leg trousers at the moment and I personally love them. However as I have quite a small frame and I'm not the tallest person in the world (5"4) I wasn't sure if I could pull them off but I think teamed with the wedges (and socks of course! It is starting to feel a bit nippy!!) I just about manage it (??) Karl actually treated me to this floral pair from Missguided last week; he's a good'n isn't he!

p.s. I apologize if you're sick of seeing this hat - it seems to be glued to my head lately!

Lady In Red

 








Bodycon tunic, net socks: TOPSHOP / Ankle boots: PUBLIC DESIRE / Necklaces, floppy hat: PRIMARK / Watch: RIVER ISLAND

Ah deep red hues how I have missed you over the summer... Everyone knows how classic deep reds and burgundies are for A/W and I just couldn't resist this bodycon tunic when I was in Topshop the other day (especially seeing as though my good old Grandma decided to treat me to it!) You can't go wrong with such a beautiful shade at this time of year and teamed with the Primark accessories this is the perfect transitional outfit for me. I'll also be layering it as the weather grows chillier so be sure to watch out for that outfit in the next few weeks!
