HOORAY FOR NO TIGHTS

dress (worn as top): american apparel
skirt: new look
leather jacket: matalan
sunglasses: primark

Hooray to the first of many tightless outfits! With the weather really picking up I decided to pass on my trusty Primark 40 denier tights and go bare legged. This dress as actually one of my favourite items to wear as a top, is extremely snug, with a low back and stripes go with almost everything! Although with it hitting up to 20 degrees I probably won't even be wearing long sleeves for much longer! I chucked on a skater dress and flung my leather jacket around my waist when it started to heat up, it also doubled up as way of making sure my skater skirt didn't go flying about in the wind. 

Let me know what you've been getting up to this Easter holiday below and don't forget to follow!

BARGAIN OF THE WEEK #2


swimsuit- American Apparel

Please replace the word weekend with CENTURY. American Apparel are having the craaaaaaaaaziest sale at the moment. AA is probably one of those shops that I covet almost everything , but the prices, ohhh the prices, they are not kind. I've been hearing a lot about this sale on YouTube and have seen a lot of people hauling items from it, so when I happened to be in London the other day I had to check out the store,  my jaw literally hit the floor (ok maybe not literally but yh). 70, 80 and 90% off, like whaaaat?! I'm so annoyed I didn't go earlier because I saw so many amazing items for so little but none of them were in my size. Anyway on this particular buy, I managed to snag £48.80 OFF, it was originally £61 and I got it for £12.20, like how amazing? This cosie will be perfect for my holidays, with a pair of shorts on top it could double up as a gorgeous floral body. It reminds me so much of 90s swimwear with the high leg and print and I am definitely going to be getting  more 90s inspired swimwear from AA! Unfortunately I'm probably not gunna rock the look as well as these 90s babes!

What has been your bargain of the week? Have you checked out the AA sale? Let me know below and make sure to follow!

SPRING!

vest top & jeans: topshop
jacker: matalan (similar)
boots: missguided

SPRING IS FINALLY HERE (for the mean time) and that means less layers! I do have to admit Spring is my least favourite season, I know, crazy, but let me explain. It's a it too warm to wear turtlenecks without being looked at funny (and I do love a good turtleneck), if you wear all black in spring you are bound to look grumpy besides the rest of the population sporting head to toe pastel and it's that awkward season in between shorts and scarves. But at the moment I am loving it! The weather is sooo nice and I can actually just wear a leather jacket without feeling like I am going to catch pneumonia! This is probably going to end up being one of my go-to spring outfits and it'll be so easy to switch up, you could swap the mom jeans for boyfriend jeans or white ones and the black leather jacket for a pastel colour to make a totally different outfit!

I hope you all had a great four day weekend filled with chocolate, because I know I did! Let me know what you got up to below! Thank you for reading and make sure to follow!

OH KHAKI DAYS

jumpsuit- primark (similar)
jacket- matalan
necklace- topshop
heels- debenhams (similar)

Khaki has been a colour that has surprisingly been extremly on trend at the moment, even though it doesn't seem like the most obvious colour for spring I love it as a laid-back alternative to black. Boiler suits have also been a huge trend and this item is a great combination of both. As well as it being so easy to throw on and dress up or down it is probably one of the best bargains I've managed to find this year, costing only a fiver (moment of silence for Primark please- you the real MVP). I love that it can be worn loosely or fitted and D-Rings are on of my favourite things at the moment, they give an item such a nice bit of detail, even thought they are so small! Oh and I know what you're thinking, "how did she come up with such a fab title?" What can I say? I'm talented.

Let me know what you think of the khaki trend, and what your favourite trend are this Spring! Thanks for reading and make sure to follow!

GUEST POST- MAKING STATEMENTS

It is not always easy maintaining your carefully created personal style. Sure you look great, but do you look yourself? These are the questions we face when the going is the hardest, right after we wake up! Anybody can have a bad hair day, or simply a moment when they don’t really feel like dolling up. Thankfully, there are so many different variations of style, that you could always borrow an idea or two, for those special days. Stressed, depressed, but well dressed, that’s a motto to go by! Of course, you might be one of those boho fairies for whom getting ready is simply a state of mind. They look great in everything, because second-hand vintage always matches. It’s a bit harder for the crisp and clean girls. Anyways, here is a short list of incredibly stylish accessories to perk you up even when the morning coffee doesn’t (and there’s something for the preps, the bohemians, and all us mortals in between!)

Hats
Spring is just around the corner, and with it comes the Spring Break, wedding season and festivals every other weekend. With all that celebration it’s time to decorate your hair and head with something stylish and yet flirty.
No matter if you choose a flower headband (its popularity seems to be rising still), forehead band or a crown-like crystal headband, you will not be wrong. On the other hand, you can pick a fedora hat or a black floppy hat if you are going for a more sophisticated look.  

Rings
As far as your hands are concerned, you better watch out because the era of statement rings is here! There is something for everyone: great boho pieces with quartz and amethyst, big silver adjustable ones, the one with rubies and crystals...
You can choose to wear one if you’re opting for a glamorous air that day, or wear several in combination with many bracelets to get that boho look which is so popular every spring and summer.

Earrings and ear cuffs
Just in case you haven’t noticed so far, earrings have become one of the main statement pieces for girls all over the world. Fashion bloggers everywhere have been wearing big, sparkly, chandelier earrings which require no other detail to accompany them. Also, ear cuffs have come back from the grunge-inspired 90’s with new glow and a new message: look how glamorous we can look!
Combine either a dainty hoop or a full-on statement piece with some of your absolute favourite party dresses and you will be the star of the evening. And in addition, there are so many versions which don't require pierced ears at all that everyone can find their favourite.

Dark lips and nails
For all the lovers of dramatic makeup and vamp look out there – your time has finally come. Dark lips and dark nails are absolute hit this season and you will not make a mistake if you choose to wear them every day. Deep plum and marsala shades are especially popular, and go well with pale skin and dark sunglasses.

As you can see, it is all about being discreet and subtly drawing other people’s attention to yourself by using carefully selected details. No one will be able to draw their eyes from you if your appearance is striking and elegant at the same time. Be bold and combine styles in such way, that you feel good wearing them in the first place, because that will surely not be unnoticed.  

What are your favourite items to make a statement with your outfit? Let me know below and make sure to follow me and Cristina!

LOST IN DRAFTS #2

jumper- mums wardrobe (similar)
cape shawl thingy (worn as scarf)- matalan
trainers- nike

This was one of those 'thrown-on-to-go-shopping' (yes that's a thing) from a few weeks ago that I just happened to photograph. I uploaded the pictures to Blogger and I have just stumbled upon them while sitting in my drafts while attempting to clear them a bit, this probably got neglected because it is a pretty basic outfit or I'm just a shocking blogger, take your pick.

I opted for all black minus the trainers, which are the commmmmmmmmmmmmmmfiest pair I have owned, plus they were only £40 in last years Boxing Day sales. This was also around the time I was playing around with my faux septum, which I wrote a post on, but I have decided to store it away until the warmer months when all the body jewellery really does come out. Oh and did anyone actually manage to see the solar eclipse yesterday, the rubbish weather (namely the clouds) meant I could only gaze upon it from my sfofa on Sky news.

Do you ever just take pictures for a blog post or write content without actually posting it? Let me know below becuase I wanna know if it's just me! Thanks for reading and make sure to follow!

ASOS SAVED #1



striped shirt dress- £27.50                                                 white shirt dress- £32
orange jacket- £22                                                               fringe crop top- £28
'unavailable' black crop top- £14                                   'namastay in bed' grey crop top- £14
'lazy' crop top- £30                                                              lilac shirt dress- £30
black short dungarees- £38                                               v-neck salmon shift dress- £20                 
coral lace swimsuit- £28                                                    'beach please' bikini- £15
white halterneck swimsuit- £18                                      denim skirt- £28
culottes- £13.50

It's pretty upsetting that my saved items list gets more action than my actual shopping basket. Many items journey to the overcrowded, hopeful place that is my saved items and only the lucky make it out to the shopping basket and eventually my wardrobe. Although these may seem like a lot of item these are just a handful of favourites from my (seventy one itemed) saved items, and possible payday purchases.

The whole thing seems quite Summer themed and as you can see from a few of my picks (namely the swimwear and sunnies) I cannot wait for the warmer months along with upcoming holidays. My second skin that is tights are not ready to shed yet with the current temperature so some of these items will definitely have to wait until Spring decides to grace us with its presence.

As well as the super comfy and fun slogan tees I'm loving these shirt dresses, they remind me of a put together extension of my pyjama collection and items that can be thrown on by themselves are always great for lazy dressing days.
