SORRY for the lack of posts lately! I am on holiday with my family in Florida and to be honest I haven’t turned my laptop on once. I am just enjoying it while I am here and planing to catch up on everything when I am home. Here is an outfit I wore before I went away….

Every person must have a pair of Converse on their shoe rack. They such a huge staple to everyone whether you’re a guy or a girl, sporty or feminine and so on. They go with absolutely everything and can be worn with any style of clothing (within reason of course). I wore this look to work and didn’t fancy wearing boots so I dressed the outfit down by going for Converse instead.

Avenue 32 SS15 Wishlist

Gillianleerose_avenue32_wishlist_fashionAll items available from Avenue32

I must spend hours each week scrolling through the ‘New In’ section of Avenue 32 lusting after pretty much everything. I have mentally spent thousands on that site creating dream outfits in my head, so I decided to put together a summer wishlist for you to see the pieces I want at the moment.

Summer for me is all about colours, whether that be pastel or bright. I like to mix a lot of colours, prints and textures too and make my outfits really pop and clash. Summer is all about having fun with fashion in my eyes. It’s the time to mix it up and be a bit more daring or risky. I am especially loving the Charlotte Simone fluffy bags, my favourite is this pastel lilac version but you can also pick them up in pink and blue. They tick all the right boxes for me at the moment – pastel, fluffy and fun! It’s a good piece to start off with if you’re not really a bright or bold colour kind of girl when it comes to fashion. You could wear a more plain outfit with muted tones and add this bag to inject some colour into the look.

LFW Vlog

I went to London Fashion Week with the lovely Laura from ‘Laura’s Little Locket‘ – I thought I would make a mini vlog for those of you who didn’t make it down, just to give you a little taste of what it’s like on the cobbles of Somerset House.

I got this body chain from ASOS as part of my Christmas package, I’ve been wanting to try one for so long and I’m glad I got one because I love it. I went with a pretty simple, basic outfit and dressed it up with accessories. The faux fur stole is one I previously featured on the blog that I managed to wangle off my Mum. She got it for a wedding and then didn’t need it after so I decided to adopt it.

Β 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 Β£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

Bottoms: Ultimo*

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.
