(Jeans – Similar, Blazer – Similar, Shoes – Exact, Bag – Similar, Bracelet – Similar) I got to choose these gorgeous Ombre Blue TOMS to style and I couldn’t have been more excited! I love TOMS as you know and have about 4 pairs of them already, they are perfect for running errands in and I love them with outfits as they are sleek, but most of all I really do like their one for one policy where they donate shoes to people in need for every pair purchased. I wanted to embrace Spring and go with something colourful which is why I chose my Zara pink blazer and a paler pink top underneath to contrast against the blue. To add another primary colour to the mix I then chose my Marc by Marc Jacobs Karlie bag in Dandelion to brighten things up even more. I wanted to keep a base tone though and something neutral which is why I opted for my Hudson Nico white skinny jeans, to counteract too much colour. For my accessories, I chose my beloved Swarovski Tinkerbell necklace and my Adele Marie fuchsia Swarovski bangle, both of which I have had for some years! I’m incredibly ready for Spring now and can’t wait to start colour blocking more. What do you think of the outfit? Comment and let me know!
(Bag – Exact, Dress – Similar, Shoes – Similar) This sort of feels like a really rare blog post for me since I’m not wearing any jeans, shorts or denim of any kind! This dress is actually quite old, I think I have had it for about 2 years now, but it’s still one of my favourites. The cut of it with the lower neckline and nipped in waist is really flattering for my shape and I think it’s so feminine with the pink floral print. I love to wear it when it’s hot outside! Luckily the past weekend was boiling hot because we had a heat wave! I’m wearing a River Island floral dress, Topshop Shirley wedges, my Mulberry Lily in Oak, my Adele Marie pink swarovski bangle, some H&M gold bangles and since my earrings are visible, those are my Azendi purple Carousel earrings. One thing I have also been experimenting with lately is my hair and having hair accessories. Here I’m wearing a pony tail tube which makes your pony tail stick out, a bit like in the 70’s. I do love it, but since I have such thick and long hair, the weight of it pulls it down a bit unfortunately. I was looking on Hershesons and they seem to have some really cool hair accessories like clip on ponytails, clip in colours, a bow hair clip and other interesting things that I think I might want to try out! I do have a Doughnut for a sock bun, but I just really can’t get that to work at all. Anyway, what do you think of…
This is an outfit that I put together on the spur of the moment. I wanted something classic and smart, but with a big pop of colour which is why I decided on fuchsia. I couldn’t decid which bag to wear though, I was stuck between my Marc Jacobs Bruna and my new sparkly clutch I picked up in the sale at Urban Outfitters. The clutch went with my shoes more, but I know so many people love the Bruna. In the end I think I decided on the clutch being a better option. Which do you prefer? I was wearing my Hudson Nico skinny jeans, a Topshop pink tank top and cream blazer, a Swarovski Panda necklace that my boyfriend bought me for Christmas, my Azendi Carousel ring, Adele Marie bangle, AVON beaded bracelets and my Christian Louboutin Declic heels in Cramberry. As I was taking photos of the heels and clutch together, my adorable cat decided she wanted to be in on it, so she sat right next to them. I think she loves Louboutins too! Also, I think this clutch is actually supposed to be a laptop case, but I don’t want to use it as that, it looks much better as a purse! Ha ha. (Follow me on Twitter, Bloglovin and Facebook)
I’m so excited to finally share with you my Paige Premium collaboration jeans! These are the Skyline in Lorna wash which I announced was available to buy now. I know you will think I am biased but I love how comfortable, soft and stretchy they are. The wash is a bit darker than the sample pair and the Tristan but I think that does make them more versatile. I have also included the special collaboration tag photos and lining photos in this post. I’m wearing my Paige Skyline in Lorna jeans, a Topshop tank top and floral snood, my Christian Louboutin Fuxia square suede Declic heels and my Adele Marie swarovski bangle. I was really happy to see that the size 32 has already sold out on Shopbop and they have limited amounts left in some of the sizes. Thank you to everyone for loving them and to those of you who have bought them so far. I know you will love them! You can buy them here at Shopbop and here at PaigeUSA. Also, on a different note, you may have noticed that my blog layout has completely changed. I’ve been working on it lots today as I wanted something new, fresh, bright and fun and I am really happy with the results. I hope you like how it looks too!

So as you know, I was attending the wedding of one of my boyfriends best friends yesterday and I had the most amazing time. I spent ages picking a dress and I finally settled on this coral one from Lipsy which I shared with you a while ago. I did 5 hours worth of traveling yesterday so I was completely exhausted by the end of it, that’s why I didn’t post yesterday. The bride looked absolutely stunning and the groom looked handsome, everything about the day was beautiful and just really nice. The table settings, the flowers, the hotel, the music (a DJ instead of a wedding band) it was gorgeous! I didn’t know anyone there so I was a little out of my comfort zone but everyone was wonderful to me and the food was amazing! The best part of the food was this soft chocolate brownie cake with a white chocolate basket with fruit in it. Delicious! I didn’t even make me feel sick after like I normally do! I was wearing my Lipsy coral dress, my Elizabeth & James E-More booties, my Marc by Marc Jacobs Karlie clutch and my Adele Marie pink swarovski bangle. (Follow me on Twitter, Bloglovin and Facebook)
I hope you all had a lovely Valentines Day on Monday! I spent the day with my boyfriend and I was lucky enough to be taken out to a 5 star hotel for lunch! Thankfully the weather stayed sunny and we had a lovely meal. I had a caesar salad and then raspberry sorbet for pudding, my boyfriend had a burger and a winter berry pudding. The food was really delicious and so pretty! That’s saying something as I generally am not that fond of food if I am honest. They even stack the chips like jenga blocks and decorate the plates beautifully! I did have a wonderful time which I am so thankful for, it’s the first time I’ve really done anything like this for a romantic occasion. I also got a really pretty Swarovski pink and purple crystal heart necklace which you can see in the photos. I know my boyfriend reads my blog every day so this is partly a thank you post to him, plus I have more outfit photos inside 😀 I was wearing my J Brand skinnies in Ink, my Topshop boyfriend blazer, a Warehouse lace top, my Christian Louboutin Cramberry Declic, my Adele Marie swarovski bangle, my Azendi Mimosa earrings and carousel ring, my new Swarovski crystal heart necklace and my Mary Frances Take A Bow clutch. So did you all have a wonderful Valentines day and nice weekend? I hope you did! I have also listed some more things on eBay which you can see here.

So these are the boots I have been very excited to share with you! I bought them last week and I was so excited because I finally found boots that fit me! They come in a range of different calf sizes and I have very small calves (only 33cm) but quite big feet (UK size 6/7) so you can imagine my happiness when I found a pair that actually fit me! Boots have always just been too big in the calves for me. I’m going to be doing a proper post on the DUO Boots brand later this week because I think a lot of you will find the brand great! I’m wearing a new Topshop boyfriend blazer, an old vintage Topshop silk top I found in my closet from years ago, my Citizens of Humanity jeggings which I also found in my closet, my new DUO over the knee boots, my vintage Topshop metallic pink clutch, Miss Selfridge rings, a Topshop silver Bambi and flowers necklace and my Adele Marie swarovski bangle. I can definitely tell that it’s Fall/Autumn now as it’s been really cold and it’s getting darker a lot earlier. It kind of excites me! I need to do some coat shopping as I don’t have a new one that I can wear. I’m on the lookout for a pretty cream coloured one with lots of buttons. (Follow me on Twitter, Bloglovin and Facebook)
I had a really nice quiet weekend, I didn’t do much, I just did some tidying up and made some plans for a new wardrobe. I have too many clothes and I need more space! I got these beloved Paige Premium jeans in the mail a couple of weeks ago too. I’ve worn them out twice already and I can’t get enough of them! I normally really don’t like flared jeans but I find these to be so flattering and perfect in every way for a flared jean that I love them! Not to mention that the wash is truly gorgeous! I’m wearing my new Paige Premium Lou Lou Tulip Petite flared jeans in Sardinia, a Miss Selfridge gold sequined and beaded top, my white Topshop tank top, my Topshop black Waffle wedges, my Ray Ban Aviators, my Elsie Belle Ti Amo necklace and my Adele Marie fuchsia swarovski bangle. Speaking of Elsie Belle, my giveaway with the brand is ending tomorrow! You need to get your entries in quickly. You can do so by clicking here.
