Braving The Rain In Navy

Firstly I’m going to start this post by saying please do excuse my hair here! As you know from me saying time and time again, it’s just so windy and rainy here all the time now, it’s sort of become difficult to take my photos not in the rain. So yeah, my hair is damp and frizzy from the wet and the wind, which is why it looks a complete state, ha ha. I did have my big parka coat on as well with the hood up and buttoned up to the top, to keep me warm and dry, but it didn’t look so good for the photos, which is why I took it off.

I’m wearing my new Zara Navy Blue Blazer which I got in the sale a couple of weeks ago. It has the most amazing burgundy elbow patches which I think really make the jacket! It’s really traditional since it’s a wool blazer, but I feel like the colour combination of it just makes it current and modern. I paired the blazer with my Diesel Skinzee Skinny Jeans as I love pairing dark navy blue with lighter blue, to keep the colour theme, but give it a contrast. Of course I had to wear my trusty Hunter Original Tall Navy Gloss Wellies again as I pretty much can’t leave the house without them at the moment and then I threw on my new Zara Burgundy and Navy Scarf for warmth. I also picked this up in the sale for a great price and it’s so soft and warm, I’m glad I did! I had had my eye on it for a while, so I’m glad it stayed in stock during the sale! Speaking of wellies though, I’ve been thinking of getting a new pair and I have seen some really cool printed pairs on Jones Bootmaker from Joules. You may remember I own some Joules black gloss wellies with pink ribbons at the back, so I was thinking I need a new pair! I’m not sure if I want to get a printed fun pair like in the link, or a pair of classic black wellies which I can wear with everything!

You may notice a couple of these photos are in a different location as I wasn’t able to shoot the close up photos in the rain, it had started to down pour and they were coming out blurry, so I took the close up details the next day when surprisingly the rain had stopped for a little while and the sun had come out! I definitely don’t recommend taking outfit photos in these conditions as they aren’t the best, but unfortunately I didn’t have a choice as I wasn’t seeing my boyfriend for two weeks and wouldn’t have any. Anyway, what do you think of the outfit? Do you like it? I thought I would wear something a little more traditional and country, since I live in Bath!

It’s A Boyfriend Jean Kind Of Lazy Day

Those of you who know me will know that comfort plays a huge role in my outfits. I don’t have a high tolerance level and if something is irritating me or being painful, I tend to get grouchy and annoyed and don’t want to wear it. This is the reason that I don’t often wear my Christian Louboutin shoes anymore and I opt for more comfortable boots and heels. This outfit here, which I shot last weekend, really is as comfortable as it gets for me. Boyfriend jeans, a simple t-shirt and flat shoes. Sometimes this kind of outfit can look incredibly sloppy though, so the key is finding the right fits and styles for your shape.

I recently fell in love with Diesel Fayza boyfriend jeans and bought a pair from the Diesel outlet a few weeks ago, but I walked into TK Maxx about two weeks ago and saw they had these Diesel Fayza jeans on the rack, in my size, for only £24.99! I didn’t even try them on, I just took them straight to the till to purchase them and I am so happy that I found them! They are incredibly comfortable and the one thing I love about the Fayza fit is the dropped crotch. Sometimes it can make your legs look short, but somehow on the Fayza cut it doesn’t do that at all. These are just pure comfort and I can’t wait to wear them more for press days and travelling! I wanted to go really casual, but add some life to the look, this is why I chose my old Mango Waistcoat printed t-shirt. I have loved this since I purchased it about 6 and a half years ago in the House of Fraser Mango section in Bristol! It may be really old, but I think it’s a classic and I never get tired of it!

As the Fayza jeans have a really gorgeous and intense darker blue wash, I wanted to pair burgundy with them which is why I chose my Topshop Western style belt in burgundy. I purchased this a few months ago and I wanted it to be a belt I would wear at the hips and around the waist, which is why I purchased the size medium and then made extra holes in it myself to wear it around my waist as it would have been too big. It’s a great belt that looks amazing when worn with jeans or around a black dress! To add more burgundy, I wore my new Converse All Star trainers in Ox Suede which I got to choose from Size.co.uk. I’ve always been a fan of Converse, I have been wearing them since I was about 13 or 14. I remember my first pair was a pair of their black high tops with flames on the sides, I wore those everyday until they broke! It’s different for me trying these ones in a suede instead of a canvas though, but I think they are amazing. The colour of them is gorgeous in person, it’s really deep and intense. I just think I would prefer them in the slim version so the white wasn’t as chunky, but they are gorgeous!

Finally, for my accessories, I opted for my Michael Kors Slim Runway watch in silver and a few various bracelets from ASOS to keep with the colour theme! When I just need to go out to run errands or do something simple, this is the kind of look that I favour, however now it’s getting a bit cooler, I’m sure I will be switching the t-shirt out for a quirky jumper/sweater or a cardigan. I do love the location in which we took these photos though, it’s really peaceful and quiet on the country road and the leaves had been falling so it was the perfect setting for the colours in my outfit. I just love how the orange plays off against the blue and burgundy. What do you think of my outfit? Comment and let me know! I always love reading what you have to say!

Casual Sundays

(Jeans – Similar, Jumper – Exact, Shoes – Exact, Bracelets – Exact, Exact & Exact)

I wore this outfit today for a casual Sunday. It’s been a while since I wore boyfriend jeans, but I find them so comfortable and this pair is actually flattering at the same time in my opinion, so I am more than happy to wear them. As it’s spring now, I thought the mint colour would compliment the light blue wash of the jeans and I kept my shoes natural.

I’m wearing Diesel Staffy Jeans, my Topshop Mint Jumper, my TOMS in Natural and some bracelets from River Island and ASOS.

As you know I love accessories, especially jewellery, I always love to jazz up my casual and comfy looks with over the top jewellery like I did here, just to give it that something extra. On another note, the voting closes very soon for the Bath in Fashion blogging awards and the winner will be chosen on Thursday at the fashion show. I still need more votes so I would really appreciate it if you could vote for me by clicking here. What do you think of the outfit?

Diesel Skinzee Jeans With A Sprig Of Mint

(Jeans – Exact, Jumper – Exact, Heels – Similar, Necklace – Exact, Ring – Similar)

Over the past few months I’ve started getting a bit of an obsession with mint. I used to wear it in the summer last year, but this year my feelings for the shade are even stronger. I think it’s so refreshing and so pretty, it makes any outfit look chic and put together in my opinion. I picked up this mint jumper a few weeks ago and thought that it would go perfectly with some of my lighter washed jeans and suprisingly, mint doesn’t even wash out my skin tone either!

I’m wearing Diesel Skinzee Jeans, a Mint Jumper, Gabbi Metal Toe Cap Heels in Nude and a Gold Cross Pendant from Topshop and an unbranded Turtle ring.

I got these Diesel Skinzee jeans from Zalando as they sent them to me as a gift to style on my blog and review on DenimBlog. I had been eying these jeans for some time now, ever since I knew Diesel was bringing out a jegging in their collection, and I think this wash is super pretty! So I want to say thank you to Zalando for that! I hope you are all having a lovely week so far and looking forward to the long weekend for Easter! I know I am! So, what do you think of the outfit?
