Here Comes The Sun...

Hi!! Today has been absolutly swealtering but finally the sun dresses can come out in full force! I'm a big fan of them because they make you feel so good! A good summer dress is above the knee, i prefer ones with no straps (tan lines!) and you can get them anywhere now for next to nothing! This is a personal fav of mine that i wore today, i saw it in a feature Vogue did with H&M and i fell in love with the colour and the shape. You could also wear it with a studded belt and add heels but i just love it for when the suns out!
Dress: £19.99 H&M (Vogue)

I've been seeing a lot of pastel colours around at the moment and i just love um! So get those pins out and embrace the sun!

Time Flies...

Hello! I thought i'd let you all know the very exciting news that i bought myself a new watch yesterday! I needed one to go to America with that was light, i could wear it outdoors and.. c'mon it had to be pretty cool! So i found this amazing one in swatch! 
Swatch: £32
I bought it in white because i have tons it can go with.. it's white, what won't go?! But there are so many colours to choose from, they are so cool and i think, amazing price tag ;)

They warp around your wrist to make it look like a bracelet as well, i'm in love and i hope you will be too! Go get one!!

Red Soles... Green Soles?

So this is just a short post because tonight is the launch of Chloe Green's shoe collection at topshop, i've seen a few of the designs and a couple have caught my eye! She has taken the idea of the god himself, Christian Louboutin and gone for a coloured sole to show they're hers... Fan? Maybe! Check these out ayway... :)

Edging it Up...

Hello!! I've been is Essex for a few days having a little holiday so i haven't written a post in a while! But while i was on the the tube there, i did spot someone wearing these beauties and it gave me an idea for a post for you guys!
I love the spike detail on these boots, it gives them such an edge and they are so much more interesting to look at, don't you think? Spikes are so cool at the moment, you have Rihanna and The Olsen twins as fans.. These bad boys are also on my wishlist! Me and my friend can't find them anywhere in stock at the moment but you might get lucky! 
Jeffrey Campbell Boots: £128

So amazing to pair with tights and punk up a dress or with distressed jeans and a leather biker jacket... Such amazing shoes!

To Tie or To Dye..

Tie dye is my absolute fav thing at the moment!! It's everywhere and images like this make me love it even more, so if someone can get hold of these for me... ;)

For amazing Tie Dye clothes go to The Ragged Priest for things like this.... 

Or be completely amazing (which i know you all are!) and Do it yourself!! Heres a link to a website that will tell you all you need to know...

Waist Not Want Not

It might be freezing cold outside right now but fashion stops for nothing! Showing off your arms with the ultimate waistcoat is the way forward... whether you DIY with cutting up an old jacket or invest in one, you'll definitely be a few fashion steps ahead!

Guys, this for you JUST as much as it is for girls! Look at justin timberlake, he's been on the trend for years now but try and think outside the box, don't just go for any old waistcoat that matches your suit. Take this one for example... 

Waistcoat: Topman £45
Its a different colour denim, it has a detachable hood... whats not to love! Pair it how Elliot has with dark jeans and some vans and you're set! Look around the high street at shops such as Topman, River Island and Urban Outfitters for your perfect waistcoat!

Harbour The Barbour

The original wax jacket is still one of the hottest things to own. Barbour has been around since the 1930's! It's one of the most practical pieces of clothing, keeping you warm and dry through winter AND i believe festival season is coming up... perfect!

I was actually given my Barbour jacket by my mum! It's about 25 years old and i can honestly say, it's one of the best things i have ever been given! It's a masculine shape so its good to wear with shorts or leggings to keep it feminine, also, i sometimes wear mine with a belt to clinch in the waist! 
My Beautiful Vintage Barbour!

You can get hold of yours either in stores or online, i have found this beautiful brown one that will fit perfect with any wardrobe. They will last for ages and you can keep getting them re-waxed so it's a perfect investment!

Barbour Vintage Beadnell Jacket (£230)

Oh and guys, don't forget to get yours too! Perfect for the heritage look, i love a guy in a barbour coat! Look at Kate and Will.. perfect couple!!

Back It Up!

(Topshop: £30)

A new favourite accessory of mine is the backpack! Bringing it back are people like Rihanna and Kanye West, they are so cool and there are so many different types be it canvas or leather. My lovely fashionista friend Ashley (featured on my 'shorts' post) bought them into my life and I'm so glad she did as they are so useful! haha.
 Style it up with a leather jacket and a coloured pair of jeans. Or when it gets hotter, a cool sun dress, waistcoat and shades!

Keeping it Short

Shorts are my FAVOURITE item of clothing right now, i wear them all the time and there are so many ways you can wear them. Either dressing them up or down with a casual tee shirt or baggy jumper or a spiked collared shirt or chiffon blouse... Here are a few of my personal favs and how you can wear them rain or shine!!
(From Top to Bottom)
Leather shorts: Topshop £30
Denim high wasted: Topshop £28
Floral: New Look £18
American: Topshop £28
Tie Dye: Ragged Priest £40
(Jumper: Mango)

(Body: American Apparel
Bum Bag: Urban Outfitters)

If you don't feel comfortable, wear your shorts with black tights, i like to think the thicker the better, also try and be daring with maybe a pair of maroon tights! And remember, when wearing heels, they make your legs look longer, so for legs that go on and on.. try them out! Enjoy eperimenting xoxo
