 I got this top and jeans on one of my many ASOS sprees a while ago. The jeans were in the sale too at only £9, absolute bargain! They have ripped knees but I think I am going to make the rips a bit bigger as when standing up straight you can’t always see the rips (like in these photos). They are sold out now so I have linked to a few similar pairs I could find. I love this high neck style of top at the moment, it also means there is no need for a necklace either making it an effortless look.

I was out for a friends birthday night out and didn’t really feel like getting dressed up to the nines because it was soooo cold out. I went for a fairly casual outfit and added a body chain to make it a bit more ‘night out ready’. I got this high neck racer top recently, my sister pointed it out and I snapped it up as I love this style of top, it always looks flattering no matter what it’s worn with.

Valentines Treats

Yesterday I received these gorgeous goodies from Ultimo as a little Valentines treat. These don’t have to be just for Valentines day though, Ultimo’s new Spring Summer range is to die for. From feminine lace to purple prints and a variety of different shapes and styles, you’re sure to find something that suits you. They have a cool new addition in the form of a body harness which would look awesome underneath an oversized boyfriend shirt tucked into a leather skirt or trousers and left unbuttoned slightly lower than normal.

I was off out with my sister and my baby niece for the day to do a bit of shopping so I threw this outfit on in a bit of a hurry as I was running late…..as per usual! I got this shirt recently from ASOS and even better was that it was reduced from £45 to a more fabulous £22, happy days. I got the jeans from ASOS as part of my little Christmas care package. I love them, I haven’t really got on board with the distressed jean look before as I’m more of a skinny jean ripped knee kinda gal. I really like these though and now want a pair that are even more distressed and baggier to wear in the Summer, which seriously needs to get a move on.

A few of the colours on offer

I was contacted by Surgery PR Group about a new Superga store opening in Guildford, which is local to me. They asked me if I wanted to pop along to check out the place and asked me to pick out some new kicks that took my fancy. This proved to take me a little longer than anticipated with such a huge array of colours and styles available. The are such nice shoes to wear with skinny jeans or even in the Summer with a cute dress or skirt and boyfriend tee for a laid back off duty look

I have loved the burgundy ones for a while now so I knew I definitely wanted these. Then I was torn between 3 gorgeous pairs, the sage grey (there is even a variety of grey shades to choose from making it even more difficult!), the navy (I preferred the darker navy but I can only find the lighter version online) and an absolute stunner of a pair in metallic gold. I very nearly went for the gold but at the last minute decided to go with the grey as out of all 3 these were the most wearable and would go with the majority of colours.

This ASOS White shirt dress is one of my favourite wardrobe items at the moment, I can’t wait till its a lot warmer to get some real wear out of it more towards Spring/Summer. It’s silk which means it’s really light weight and floaty too. In the summer I will wear this with just a leather jacket to give it an edge, it would also look cool with a pair of converse for a casual twist on the look. I will also wear it, probably more so now in the Winter when it’s a lot cooler, with a jumper over the top for an alternative look. I think being able to see the collar and sleeves poking out and the bottom half looking more skirt like would look good and just gives you another way to wear this versatile shirt dress.

As a girl who has never owned a pair of trainers (bad, I know) I always thought they were more suited to the ‘sporty type’ and didn’t really have a place in my wardrobe. I was so very wrong! I had an amazing opportunity to design my very own pair of Nike trainers at ASOS HQ with the Nike iD team and the lovely guys from Pendleton Woollen Mills. I picked out a pair of Roshe Runs on reccomendation of a friend who likened them to ‘walking on a cloud’ and he was spot on with that one. They are the most comfortable shoes that have ever graced my feet, they are so light, they fit perfectly and when I walk I can definitely notice a spring in my step. I think it has now started a trainer obsession because I’ve already started looking for my next pair.
