A little update...

Ahh! This week has been so hectic with uni! I'm so glad it's nearly over! Although, I think this week coming is going to be the same...but on the bright side, I have some really exciting posts coming up and I cannot wait for you all to see them! I have been lucky enough to collab with a couple of brands so make sure you keep an eye out! :)

I managed to get these photos during a lunch break at uni. With the help of my lovely friends, Michelle and Sarah. Michelle has just started blogging and her blog is already amazing! She's a natural blogger! We decided to have a mini shoot together as it just so happened to be that we both colour coordinated our outfits...It wasn't planned! I'm sure there will be more shoots like this to come! 
Please go and check her blog out! :) https://simplestmademoiselle.wordpress.com

You can see more of this shoot on Michelle's blog. (link above)

I love the frill detail on the trouser pockets! So cute!

How cute are these houndstooth trousers from Topshop!? I adore the frill detail around the pockets and I love the houndstooth print! They're perfect for all year round as they won't go out of style and they will always make an outfit look chic and stylish. The same goes for the loafers which are also from Topshop and they're only £29!! They go with everything and are right on trend this season! They are also so so comfy, I thought they would be hard to break in because the heel is quite tough but I haven't needed any plasters yet! 

I know its a bit of a short post today but the upcoming posts will make up for it! :)

Have a lovely day!

Feeling Blue

Hello everyone!
Hope you're all well!

I can't believe it's October already! I am honestly glad that September is over though. It was quite a difficult month for me, uni especially, which led to me not blogging for a while and I have really missed it. I thought that giving my uni work priority and letting my blog slip a bit was okay but I have realised over the past month that I shouldn't do that. Of course my uni work is important but it is also important to have a break from it all! Have a bit of 'me' time and not stress about it for at least an hour or so. Just relax or do what you love for a little while otherwise, you will find that you're not happy and you'll most likely become more stressed because of it. The past couple of weeks have been so stressful for me, I broke down a couple of times because I couldn't cope with the stress. Today is the first day of the past month, that I have felt okay and felt that I could leave my uni work for a bit and actually blog. I might regret it later or even in a couple of days but at the moment I am happy and that's all that matters.

These photos were taken towards the beginning of September, I remember feeling quite hot wearing this outfit because of the warm weather but I think this sort of outfit will be perfect now it's Autumn!

I found the floral blouse in a Charity shop in my local town, its meant to be oversized but it is also a size bigger than I would usually buy but I loved the print so much that I had to have it! Maybe I could adapt it somehow to fit a bit better but for now, I am happy to tuck it into my trousers or whatever. :)
It is originally from Topshop and it still looks in good condition although I think I ruined the fabric a little by washing it wrong! but it's fineee haha

Anyway, I chose to style the blouse with these rust orange/red coloured trousers I found in the Topshop sale a few months back. They were only £5!! I love the colour and they are perfect for Autumn. Plus it's a good way to brighten up your day, especially now it's getting a bit darker outside. The blouse has a similar colour to these in the print so I thought the trousers would really bring out the print on the blouse.

Blouse - Charity Shop
Trousers - Topshop
Bag - Fiorelli 
Loafers - Primark
Neck Tie - DIY 

For my shoes, I chose these cute tassel loafers from Primark. I love them! They're so comfy and I'm not sure if you can see in the photos but there is actually a bit of faux 'pony' fur for the top of the loafers. They do have more colours, I think they have some leopard print ones which would be a good buy since animal print is on trend for Autumn/Winter. 

Thank you so much for reading and hope you enjoyed it! Let me know what you think!
Hope you have a lovely day!

Gingham Trousers


How was everyone's weekend? I attended an amazing workshop on Saturday held by the London School of Styling. The workshop was called 'Breaking into Fashion' and it was honestly so helpful! We were given some amazing tips on how to get into the Fashion Industry and it really gave me an insight to the Styling side of Fashion. Where I study fashion design at uni, we cover so many areas but styling isn't of them. Or if it does, it's not enough to give us a good idea of what it involves or how you can get into styling. I really recommend that you take a look at their website if you are interested in becoming a Stylist or even if you're just curious! - London School of Styling

Top - New Look
Gingham Trousers - Primark
Silk Scarf - Small Boutique in Paris
Loafers - Clarks
Bag - Topshop
Sunglasses - Primark

*The top, trousers and scarf are all old but I'm pretty sure you could find similar items on the high street. 

For this outfit, I took some inspiration from one of my favourite style icons, Audrey Hepburn. I wanted my outfit to be simple yet chic and stylish, like many of Audrey's outfits. So I opted for these black and white gingham trousers and a plain black top. They would have looked fine on their own but I wanted to add a bit of colour to the outfit. I did this by choosing a silk scarf that I brought in a small boutique in Paris a couple of years ago. I love the colours in the scarf and I thought it would look great against the black and white. As well as the scarf I chose this blue bag to match the blue in the scarf and it adds the pop of colour I wanted. This outfit is now my go-to outfit for when I want to look smart but chic at the same time.

Since loafers are big again this season, I decided to dig out my ones from last year. They are still quite comfy but they are getting a bit battered from wear and tear. I may need to invest in a new pair soon. Actually, I say they're comfy but I wore them to London on Saturday and they hurt my feet so much! Towards the end of the day, I was genuinely limping and I had to cover the backs of my feet in plasters. So, they USED to be comfy.. haha :)

I have an outfit lined up that is inspired by another of my favourite style icons, Alexa Chung! It will be on my blog soon! Who are your favourite style icons? Let me know in the comments! :) 

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed it!
Have a great day! :)

Hello September!


A new month! A fresh start!
So it's September now which means for us students, that we go back to school/college/uni soon. I'm about to go into my second year at uni! I'm excited but at the same time, I'm actually quite anxious about it. Everything is going to step up now, the workload, the deadlines, the stress...ahh! It's giving me a headache just thinking about it! Which is why I'm planning to be super organised this year! I say it every term... but this time, I plan to stick to it! I feel like I have come so far with my blog over the summer and I don't want it to stop. It's going to be hard but others manage to do it, so I can too! It might mean I have to go down to one or two posts a week but it is better than nothing. I'm hoping that I will get into a routine which will help a lot.

If anyone has any tips on how to stay super organised, please let me know in the comments! It will be greatly appreciated! :)

Leather Jacket - Topshop
Knitted Jumper - Primark
Culottes - New Look
Mules - 4th and Reckless
Mini Backpack - Topshop

How cute is this mini backpack from Topshop!? It's adorable! I absolutely love the lilac colour and it is actually one of the main colours for AW16. This bag is perfect for adding a pop of colour to any outfit! I didn't actually plan to buy it though, the only reason I bought it was because my favourite red bag broke when I was on my way to London a couple of weeks ago. The handle snapped from where I have used it so much and I needed to get a replacement. I planned to find a canvas tote bag in Topshop on Oxford street but I couldn't find any. Then I found this little cutie. I'm glad I did find it as I love it!

I love this khaki knitted jumper from Primark and it is only £6! There were so many colours too! I can't wait to stock up on them for Autumn as they would be perfect to wear to uni. They are easy, stylish and keeps me warm! Talking of Primark, I have just found that they sell berets!! If you haven't read my last post, I am going to try wearing a beret this season as I have always wanted one and thought I would give it a try. I was planning to get one from eBay or Amazon but I was unsure on what the quality would be and to find that Primark is selling them is great news! They are only £6 too!

Since I chose this khaki jumper for the outfit, I thought the mules from 4th and Reckless would go nicely with the jumper. I still find them a bit high but I am getting used to them! It just might be a while until I wear them for a full day! haha!

I found these pale culottes in New Look's sale and loved them at first. But...that was a good few months ago now and I haven't worn them until now. This is because I think they make me look really pale. If I had a lovely golden tan then maybe I could pull them off better but nope. I like them but after seeing them on, it has just put me off them. I think they look alright for this outfit but I don't think I will wear them again.

What do you think of this outfit? Let me know in the comments and I will reply as soon as I can!
Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed it! :)

Autumn Must Haves


It's the last day of August!! Where has the summer gone!? It only feels like a couple of weeks ago that I broke up from Uni for the summer! However, I am really looking forward to Autumn! 
I love the autumnal season, even the bad weather, mainly because I can wrap up warm. I love wearing thick knitted jumpers and wearing huge blanket scarves! And don't get me started on all the amazing coats...I just love it all! 

For today's post, I have decided to share my Autumn must haves with you! There are so so many things I'm after at the moment including the Gucci dupe loafers that everyone is loving at the moment!! I think I may have to write a separate post just on shoes alone! 

I was going to list all the links below but it looked a bit messy to me! So for all the item details and links, click here

I won't go through all the items above and tell you why and that, as that will take too long! But I will share my top five with you and tell you why I love them!

1. Floral Dress - Zara
Okay, so this floral dress is so so cute! I love the print and the ruffle details on the bodice, it is just perfect for Autumn! Pair it with a beret, tights, loafers (Gucci dupes of course!) and a bit of red/pink lipstick! 

2. Black Beret - Net-A-Porter *I would most likely get one from eBay.*
I have always wanted to try a beret but I could never bite the bullet and try one. So this year, I have decided to go for it and get one! I feel like my personal style has changed since then and now I am a lot more experimental with my outfits! 

3. Embroidered Boots - Miss Selfridge
These boots are just perfect! I love everything about them; especially the floral embroidery!! From the items above, I would style these with the black mom jeans, the white lace blouse, the dusty pink coat and have the mustard bag to bring out the hint of yellow/mustard in the boots. I have so many ideas on how to style these beauties!

4. Tapestry Backless Loafers - Topshop
At the moment I think Topshop are killing it with shoes/boots! There are so so many I want from there, it's unreal. It was hard to choose what shoes I wanted to include in this post but I have decided to go for these backless beauties! I love the tapestry fabric used and I think they will be perfect for the transition into Autumn. 

5. Teal Mini Crossbody Bag - Zara
My favourite part of this bag is the strap detail. I love it! You don't often see bags where the main detail is on the strap, it is usually on the main body of the bag. The colours used for this bag go together so well, it is just so perfect! 

What are your Autumn must haves? Do we share any? Let me know! :) 
If you have a post like this, leave your links below as I would love to have a look! 

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed it!
Hope you have a lovely day!
