Pastel Blue & Pollen Buff

I wore this outfit over the weekend while I was out with my boyfriend. You may recognise this coat as it’s almost identical to my yellow Zara coat, just without the pocket! It fits the same and I love pastel blue at the moment as I’m sure you have already noticed! I decided that one thing I needed to stock up on was some pretty coats as being a UK fashion blogger often means they are what I have to wear on a daily basis!

I layered my new blue Zara zippered coat over my Topshop cream peplum top as I love how peplum fits! It’s so flattering to the figure in my opinion! For my jeans, I went with my new dream jeans which I am in love with! My Rag & Bone The Skinny in Sonoma! I got these a couple of weeks ago and have been living in them as they are so perfectly fitted! I originally fell for the wash when I saw it in Harvey Nichols 2 months or so ago. They really are incredible and I recommend them to anyone! They always have such great washes and fits.

I tucked them into my old River Island boots and then, for my bag, I wore something brand new that you haven’t yet seen! My 3.1 Phillip Lim Mini Pashli in Pollen Buff! Isn’t it beautiful? I got it on Shopbop when they had a discount code as I had always wanted a Mini Pashli. I wasn’t 100% sure on the colour at first though as it’s a yellow with brushed orange over the grain, so it’s fairly unique, but I really like it now and have grown to love the colour. It’s pretty heavy for me, but it’s such a great bag! What do you think of the bag, the jeans or the outfit in general?

The Basketball Tee

You may remember this Topshop Basketball Tee from my new purchases post that I made last week. Since it’s been plenty warm enough to actually go out in just a t-shirt, this is the first time that I actually got to wear it! I wore it to the Botanical Gardens on Sunday when I went to go and relax, feed the squirrels and birds and just enjoy the Spring time! It’s such a beautiful place and it’s one of my favourites when the weather is warmer. I take nuts and seeds and often sit in a quiet spot and feed the squirrels and birds from my hands as they can be quite tame if they trust you. I plan on posting more photos soon though! I’m really enjoying nature at the moment!

I paired my Basketball Tee with my trusty black Levi’s Skinny Jeans as these are one of my go to’s when it comes to black! They fit perfectly and are so comfortable, so they couldn’t be better if they tried! To keep with the black theme, I went with my Christian Louboutin Pigalle 100 in Black to add some height and femininity to the look and then lots of accessories! I chose my new Marc by Marc Jacobs Black Critter Watch which I got from Shade Station, then also my Ray-Ban Erika Sunglasses in Red Velvet, which you just saw yesterday! For bracelets, I went with my Bibi Bijoux Blue Crystal bracelet and a couple of others from ASOS. I’m really loving being able to wear lots of arm candy again! I never get much chance to wear it during the Winter as being a UK fashion blogger means I have to adapt to the seasons and long sleeves are always needed. It’s a nice change to be able to layer on my bracelets again! I hope you like the outfit and I have a cool post coming up on Sunday for Easter! I would love to know your thoughts in the comments below!

The Cat Face Tee by Tea & Cake

(Jeans – Similar, Tee – Exact, Shoes – Exact, Watch – Similar, Bracelets – Similar & Similar)

This is a really casual outfit that I wore a couple of weekends ago to go out to dinner for Mother’s Day. It was a really warm evening which is so strange at the moment as I’m still finding it hard to get used to how different the weather is every single day, ha ha. The joys of being a UK fashion blogger! If only it was still warm!

I got this t-shirt as a bit of an impulse buy when I was in Topshop about a month or more ago. I love anything to do with cats as you know, so whenever I see something with a cat on it, I usually have to end up buying it. This cat face tee is by Tea & Cake and it’s amazing! I love how it has all the different breeds on the front! It’s really unique. I decided to pair it with my Koral moto skinny jeans as I just received these a couple of weeks ago. The moto detailing on the knees is actually amazing because it hits my knees! Usually moto jeans are too long for me and the stitching sits below my knees which can end up looking silly, but these are the perfect length and I love the ankle zippers too! I originally saw them at their press day in London last year and I fell for them then. These jeans are another great example of an amazing pair of Koral jeans!

For my shoes, I went with my Topshop Koala espadrilles in pink as I wanted something comfortable. I got these online a few months ago as I thought they were adorable! They are really soft too so they don’t hurt the backs of my feet which is a huge bonus! I just adore the two tone pink though, they are so pretty! Now onto the accessories, when I have bare arms, I always love to layer on my bracelets and watches to add a bit of colour and fun. I chose my Marc by Marc Jacobs Henry Skeleton watch in pink and then layered on loads of different coloured bracelets from ASOS, Topshop, Amadoria and River Island. I have been trying to stay away from too many casual outfits lately and really make and effort, but sometimes I just love comfort! What do you think of this outfit? Do you like the tee?

New Autumn Purchases – Part 2

topshop basketball t shirt New Autumn Purchases   Part 2

I am aware that it’s not Autumn anymore, it is in fact Spring… However, this post somehow slipped away from me! Back in November I posted part 1 of my new purchases, but for some reason I never got around to posting part 2! I literally just found these images in a folder on my desktop and thought that I would still share them with you as you haven’t seen any of these pieces yet! Plus, I think any Autumn leaves background makes any fashion blog photos look pretty! Don’t you?

Above is a basketball t-shirt that I picked up from Topshop all the way back in October, however since the weather got really cold, I haven’t been able to wear it. I’m hoping that I can wear it soon though as I have outfits planned for it! I’m thinking black skinny jeans or denim shorts! I loved this top so much when I first saw it, I think it’s the burgundy sleeves that got me! I do love burgundy!

Now these skeleton leggings are also from Topshop and I purchased them around Halloween in October. I thought they were really cool and they look really quirky when worn, so I might do an outfit soon with these! They are really thin leggings though which is why I haven’t had the chance to wear them yet!
