Arm Swag And Arm Candy

I’ve never really had a thing for watches until a couple of months ago. I sort of developed the liking for them when I realised there are some really pretty ones out there and it’s much easier to just look at your wrist than having to keep checking your phone for the time. The thing that bothered me most about them was the fact they were tight, I always prefer bracelets looser on my wrist, but I find wearing them with the strap looser helps. Since I usually wear a lot of bracelets anyway, I’ve really fallen in love with the trend on Instagram for Arm Swag and Arm Candy. I think it looks really good pairing your watch with loads of bracelets, especially in bright colours with gold. I love this rainbow watch I got from ASOS a couple of months ago, I’ve been wearing it quite often, and I have my eye on another one in rose gold which I think is gorgeous. Do you like the trend too?

The Zara Chanel Inspired Jacket And Mulberry Clutch

(Jeans – Exact On Sale, Jacket – Similar, Necklace – Exact, Ring – Exact, Shoes – Similar, Bag – Similar) This is an outfit that I had planned since I bought this jacket! I originally showed it to you in my new purchases post and some of you mentioned that it was sort of Chanel inspired. I noticed that when I saw it in the store and fell in love with it because of it’s smart and classy style. I thought pairing it with my dark skinny jeans and nude heels keeps it classic, but the bag and top give it that pop of colour that I always like. I’m wearing James Jeans Couture skinnies, my Zara cream jacket, a Topshop purple top, purple Amethyst necklace and Bunny ring, my Mulberry Denim Loopy Leopard Alexa Clutch and my Kurt Geiger Nude Eleanor heels. What do you think of the look? Do you like it? I was so lucky that it was actually sunny when I took the pictures, throughout the day it was raining all the time (as I’m sure you fellow Brits know all about) so I was fully expecting to have to do umbrella photos for this, but I’m lucky that I didn’t! I have something very very exciting that I am going to reveal to you all soon as well, I can’t wait to share that with you! I think you will all like it!

My New Bronx Glitter Slippers In Gunmetal

I bought these gorgeous Bronx Glitter Slippers in Gunmetal last week during the ASOS sale. I came across them as I was browsing the shoe section and instantly fell in love with them. I have been wanting some slipper type shoes for some time, but I never found a pair that were comfortable enough or suited me. I think these fit my criteria perfectly though! I love the darker glitter tone and they are actually comfortable. I did also buy the Leopard version (here), but I had to send them back because they were too big. I can safely say I am in love with these shoes though. Unfortunately my boyfriend doesn’t like them, but I love them too much to worry about that, ha ha. What do you think? You can buy them here in the sale.

The Red Ombre Maxi Dress

(Dress – Similar, Bag – Exact On Sale, Shoes – Exact On Sale, Bangles – Similar) This is an outfit that I wore last month when we finally had our taste of Summer. I hadn’t had time to post it yet as other outfits and posts sort of came first, but now I am able to share it with you. I got this dress around Christmas time during the sales and have been waiting for the perfect moment to wear it. That time came last month and I love it. I am a huge fan of the ombre trend as you know and the fact that this has a shorter under skirt with layered sheer fabric over the top makes it even more beautiful. I’m wearing my Miss Selfridge Ombre Maxi Dress, my gifted Sam Edelman Yelena heels, my Marc by Marc Jacobs Karlie Clutch in Dandelion and my H&M Gold Bangles. I thought his location near where I live (I live in the countryside) would be perfect for the backdrop too because the yellow of the fields contrasts so nicely against the red. Anyway, I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so I can wear this dress again. I actually got the petites version so it fitted better and it’s also a one shoulder dress, but it suits me better strapless because of my shape, so I sort of customised it a bit. What do you think of the outfit? Don’t forget to enter my $100 Shopbop giveaway too! It ends in a few days.

I am a fan of many other bigger blogs and also smaller blogs, but I thought I would include 5 of the ones I do really like for now. I have some future plans for other blogger posts too though, so stay tuned! If you click this post, you can view the 5 bloggers I chose and why I like them.

Studs, Spikes & Denim

I did have every intention of making this post yesterday, but unfortunately I came down with the 24 hour stomach bug that was going round and I spent most of the day in bed really ill. Thankfully that’s clearing up and I’m feeling a lot better now. This is one of the outfits that I put together for the styling of these Jeffrey Campbell Foxy Spike heels from Sarenza. I’m wearing my Topshop studded and spiked denim jacket, a Miss Selfridge tie front shirt and black coated leggings with the Jeffrey Campbell Foxy Spike heels. I chose to pair these shoes with this jacket because I think the double studs and spikes combination worked really well. It sort of balanced it out from being too bottom heavy in my opinion. This jacket weighs a tonne though, it’s so heavy! I will say one thing, if you have these shoes, do be careful with them! I actually cut my foot a bit because one of the spikes scraped across me. They are really spikey and I think that Jeffrey Campbell should have actually flattened the ends of them, like they are flattened on everything else I own with spikes. But what do you think of the outfit? Also, I apologise for not linking to the items I’m wearing, the site I use is down so hopefully I can update it later for you.

I do class it as a way to share my photos and life more than just on my blog. So definitely check my out Instagram! If you let me know your Instagram username as well, I would love to follow you back and check out your photos too! Let me know what you think of my pictures!

Pink Maxi Skirts & Denim Shirts

(Skirt – Exact, Shirt – Exact, Heels – Exact, Necklace – Similar, Flower – Similar) I was gifted this gorgeous coral maxi skirt by Jovonna for styling on my blog. This is the outfit that I came up with and I really love how it turned out. Of course one of my outfits wouldn’t be complete without some denim somewhere, so I decided pairing a girly and dainty skirt like this with a tougher denim shirt would contrast each other well and just work. I’m really pleased with the pairing actually. I’m wearing a Jovonna Coral Maxi Skirt, a Topshop denim shirt and bird cage necklace, my Sam Edelman Yelena heels (which were also kindly sent to me by Sam Edelman) and a H&M orange hair flower. I found some really cool pieces on Jovonna actually, they have some gorgeous skirts and dresses as well as other items that I think are adorable! I’m really glad I got this skirt though, I love how much excess fabric there is to it so you can swing it about and it flows in the wind beautifully. What do you think of the look? As always now, I have put the clothing I am wearing in the links under the first photo so you can check them out if you like them! Also, don’t forget to enter my Shopbop contest in the post below!
