Outfit | Knots & Crosses

Jumpsuit - New Look // Maxi Shirt - Choies // Belt - H&M // Slip Ons - ASOS (sale) // Necklaces - H&M & Shop Dixi

 I'm currently on a clothes shopping ban and trying to use the clothes I've already got and not worn in an effort to save my pennies over the next few months. So while sifting through my wardrobe trying to think of something to wear I found this awesome jumpsuit I picked up from New Look a while ago. I always find jumpsuits on me just don't sit right (short people problems) but this jumpsuit fits like a glove! The waist sits just right and the neckline is really flattering, such a great staple to any wardrobe!

I've been dying to wear my cute dalmatian spot slip ons from the ASOS sale. They're super comfy but can't imagine how much more comfy they'll be when they're worn in.
 I also love this maxi checked shirt I bought off Choies. I love to use maxi shirts kind of like kimono's just to throw on over outfits when it's not too cold. They also give a smart casual vibe to your outfit and it also adds a bit of colour to any monochrome piece.

Outfit | The Only Nirvana Song You Know

Beanie - ASOS // Halter Top - O-MIGHTY // Necklace - H&M // Trousers - ASOS (sale) // Boots - Primark

I absolutely love and I managed to grab myself a couple of bits when they were having an online sample sale and bought this awesome crop too. Most of you Nirvana fans out there will probably get a laugh out of this like I did when I first saw this top. I've been loving halternecks this summer so for me halter neck + cheeky slogan = perfection!

I was really surprised at the quality of this top as it's super stretchy which makes it really comfortable and you don't feel restricted. Only problem is now that I want to buy everything off OMIGHTY!

I was up in Glasgow a few weeks ago and I went into Primark. After being unimpressed I headed out the shop and spotted these Timberland-esque boots. I did originally leave without them but something in my head went "you'll regret it if you don't buy them" and I'm so glad I did! They are super comfortable and will come in handy come the autumn/winter months!

Outfit | Don't Cry

Fedora - Missguided // Sunglasses - ASOS // Top - Choies // Pilazo Pants - Missguided // Sliders - New Look // Bag - ASOS

Hello lovelies!

Please excuse my facial expression in some of these photos. If you read my previous post I mentioned that my boyfriend is now on camera duty and I'm not used to having someone take my pictures for me, plus Harris didn't help by making me laugh so it was hard to pick the best of the bunch!

So after watching Bee from idressmyselff wearing these awesome palazzo pants from Missguided it was an instant buy. I'd been on the hunt for the perfect pair for ages and they all seemed too expensive, too flashy or not the right waist but these are just right! Admittedly I did have to cut a few inches off the bottom of them as they were still too long even with my highest heels on and also the fact that I'm majorly short, but I love them regardless.

I also picked a few bits from Choies one being this wee slogan tee. I was a bit disappointed when I realized it had this 'moth bitten' effect on it as it didn't appear to be like on the website but it's still a nice addition to my collection. I'm always looking for inspiration and motivation on a daily basis so why not incorporate it into an outfit? Slogan tee's are a nice way to make a subtle statement and can be worn a multitude of ways.

Outfit | Bitching & Junkfood

 Top - Bitching & Junkfood // Belt - H&M // Jeans - Boohoo // Shoes - New Look // Clutch - ASOS (sale)

Hello Lovelies!
So on one boring afternoon flicking through Instagram I spotted that Bitching & Junkfood were having a warehouse clearance on their website so I instantly headed over to check it out. I'd never bought anything from them before and was super happy with what I bought. One being this cute little velvet off shoulder top. I've never been a fan of velvet very much but something about this appealed to me and for a bargain £5 I couldn't help but buy it.
I've been loving anything off shoulder this summer, just a shame summer is soon coming to an end! I feel it's a really flattering cut especially on girls with smaller chests and gives a subtle 'sexy' vibe to any outfit.

Hope you all have an awesome week! Mine has been very constructive so far as I've got a couple weeks off work so I'm knuckling down and getting some blog posts written up. I've also now got the fella on 'camera duty' for my outfits so he's currently under training!
