Outfits of the Week!

I thought I would do another outfits of the week post as the one I did before proved rather popular last time and I gotta give the people what they want!

So the first outfit is when I went to Dagenham Market.  I wanted something comfortable but also warm as I would be outside for a few hours.  I’m wearing a t-shirt from the Disney Store.  You can’t really see it properly but it’s really cute; it’s red and white stripe with a drawing of Minnie Mouse on it.  I then teamed it with my new black glitter leggings from Missguided.  I really like these leggings because they’re actually wool so super warm and super comfy which is exactly what you want from a pair of leggings!  Plus they have glitter in them just for something different.  I then put on my military jacket from Primark.  I’ve gotten so much use out of this jacket because it’s really lightweight and just what you need when the weather is in between seasons.  I then put on my military style ankle boots from Tesco as they are really comfortable and good for walking around markets as sometimes it can be a bit muddy.

Then next outfit I wore was for a night out in Fulham.  The dress is from Missguided and I copied this from Millie Mackintosh’s style diary as I saw she had it.  The boots are from River Island which I feature in my clothing haul video here: they look black in the picture but they’re actually dark navy suede with black elastane at the back.  I’m in love with them!  The necklace is from New Look and is also featured in my video.

Next is an outfit I wore to work.  It’s a white pussy bow blouse with grey wool cigarette trousers and a dark turquoise cardigan that is low cut and ties with a bow.  So lots of bows going on here!  The whole outfit is actually from French Connection.  I really like French Connection for work clothes as I think they do some really smart pieces.  I know it is quite expensive for a high street brand but they also do really good sales so watch out for those!

Then another outfit I wore to work but this is a bit more dressy as I was going out straight from work.  I’m wearing a loose black sheer shirt with roll up sleeves but you can’t see it in the photo so trust me that it looked good haha!  I had that tucked into an a-line skirt from ASOS in cobalt blue.  This skirt is so pretty and perfect for an office to bar look.  If you look closely it’s actually striped with mesh bits going through it.  The blazer is from Zara and another item I saw Mille Mackintosh in.  This blazer actually has little silver and red sequins on it and silver military style buttons.  The Chelsea boots are actually ankle wellies as they’re made from a rubbery material, perfect for if it snows again or at festivals as you can still look on trend.  Also, Millie has these too!  They’re by a brand called Gathering.

Next is an outfit I wore to Kensington Roof Gardens.  The dress is from Missguided and is an Aztec sort of pattern with cut out bits at the side.  I accessorized this with a pearl necklace from Primark, rings from New Look and clutch bag from Topshop.  And I did have some funky gold heels on from Kurt Geiger but you can’t see these in the photo unfortunately.

Then next is another outfit I wore to work which I think makes me look a bit like a school girl but oh well.  It’s a white shirt from Zara with a grey v-neck jumper also from Zara and then the skirt and shoes are H&M.  Quite a simple outfit but you can’t go wrong with a bit of simplicity for the office!  Good for the days when you don’t feel like making an effort and don’t have time in the morning.

Lastly is an outfit I wore on a night out in Clapham.  The crop top is from New Look and the disco pants I got on eBay.  I wasn’t 100% sure on this outfit at first as it’s quite daring but I threw on a leather jacket and my killer wedges by Chinese Laundry and I felt better.  I still think animal print is very much in and can really sexy up an outfit!

So that completes my outfits.  I hope you enjoyed this post and make sure you check out my beauty haul video:

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here .

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
