As cliche as it sounds, life really is better with a tan! Nothing better than being able to spend your weekends lounging about with sun beaming down, topping up the tan you got from your summer holiday! I have just got back from an amazing week in beautiful Ibiza! I am still recovering from the late nights and one too many Pina Coladas! but it was all 110% worth the tiredness I am feeling now!

I am a little bit obsessed with palm tree prints at the moment, they add such a good holiday vibe to any outfit! I could not resist this little body con mini from Zara, perfect for hot summer days. My leather cami is also from Zara, which was in the sale for only £17.99! Although leather may not be the most suitable of materials for this humid climate London is experiencing at the moment, this top has a cool cotton back which makes it almost acceptable to wear... ha!

I also thought I would show you some of my pretty jewelry which I picked up whilst browsing through the hippy markets in Ibiza, if you ever visit the White Isle make sure you check out their markets, they have some really unique pieces. I have been searching high and low for some gemstone rings and finally found the perfect ones, I am chuffed with them and haven't taken them off since being home!

Sugar Baby

With spring in the air, a nice mild breeze sweeping through London, and light city evenings, the pastels are officially out!! Although, we are not strangers to getting all four seasons in one afternoon, so a light summer coat is essential when living in the UK. I have been longing for some warm weather to arrive for quite some time now, and what better way to welcome the season with some sugary sweet pastel shades. I am loving pastels so much, I decided to blend both of my favorite shades. Mint Green and Baby Pink. Good enough to eat.

 All i need now is a golden tan to match. (sigh)

I am still loving the 90's trend, with the tattoo chokers, gingham and chunky platforms as you can see.... very Baby Spice! Here I have vamped up the girly colors with black leather sandals and a splash of gothic accessories.

Hope you enjoy... x

I recently saw this beauty of a bomber jacket appear on the ever so trustworthy Miss Guided website. Most girls will know this is the go to place for on trend things if you are needing to budget. It is perfect for when pay day seems a distant memory and you need that fashion fix! If you are like me, you get that urge to buy something weekly.... not good!

Although not the warmest item, it is perfect for layering on a night out and gives that bit of glam. Its made from a silky material which is great for evening time. I adore the colours as I am a sucker for anything gold/silver. Love that bit of shimmer! The pattern is very intricate and you have to look quite close to see what is actually printed - which I love as it adds interest.

These leather joggers are definitely a new favorite of mine. You can dress them up with strappy heels for a bit of sports luxe, or go casual and pair with trainers like I did here. Black converse are a must have item for me! These joggers are extremely comfy and make a change from the ordinary jeans or leggings. I will most certainly be pairing them with a black sheer blouse and heels very soon!

90s Child

Sweater - Primark
Leggings - Urban Outfitters
Boots - Linzi
Bag - Ebay
Hat - H&M

The Spice Girls, Clueless, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, N sync ... whats not to love about the 90s? 

In order to show my appreciation of the current Nineties trend which is absolutely everywhere on the High Street and on the catwalks, I thought I would come up with an outfit which represented the Nineties child. This red jumper is very bright and screams danger - a little bit of fashpo from Dennis the Mennis don't you think? It reminded me of the school jumpers from primary school which everyone switched to during the chilly months! and the fabric is unbelievably cosy, and has a fluffy lining which is very much needed!

I am very much a fan of the whole Nineties thing that's going on,  and Topshop are really showing off at the moment with their stock. From fluffy angora jumpers in candy colours, PVC minis and heaps of tartan, It really is like walking into the on set wardrobe of Clueless. It is just a shame I do not have the funds to purchase the whole store. Boo! And Speaking of Clueless, it has been playing on the TV nearly every week lately which I am very pleased about.

Stone and Ice

Coat - Marks and Spencer
Leather T-Shirt - MissGuided
Coated Jeans - Zara
Boots - Linzi
Necklace -
Ring - H&M
Nail Polish - Essie

There is nothing like crisp white sheets, white modern decor and of course white leather. White is very hard to maintain, but when it has its crispness, it is beautiful. I love the connotations of white - its purity and innocence. A blank canvas.

I centered this outfit around my white leather T shirt which I recently snapped up from Miss Guided. I love its clean sharp edges and its ability to be paired with most things in my wardrobe. This coat is actually stolen from my mums wardrobe. I have always had my eye on it and was over the moon when she handed it over to me! Its actually from Marks and Spencers believe it or not, and is old season. Must of been purchased a few years ago now, but it is still in amazing condition and perfect for this winters over sized coat trend. Mum could not of given me this at a better time!

All white is very risky, but too cute to pass on wearing. However, I would avoid going on a night out in all white. Wine stains are not pretty.

I wanted to jazz it up a bit and add a pop of colour, so I put on my mint blue statement necklace which I ordered online a few weeks ago and I am very pleased with it... £12 is all it cost me. I always find a statement necklace gives clothes that expensive look. I am actually obsessed with buying jewels at the moment and have been scouring the internet everyday. I love how a new necklace can transform an old outfit without having to go out and buy new clothes!

Frills N Thrills

Top , Topshop
Skirt , h&m
Necklace , Topshop
Shoes, Zara

Seeing as we are in October and having some very strange, but LOVELY mild temperatures, I decided to make the most of my summer items before they get demoted to the back of my wardrobe. It will be sad putting these sandals away! I have worn them a hell of a lot.

However, there is a slight chill in the air so I thought it was appropriate to throw on a light summer knit.
I love this Jumper and its granny Chic - ness. The lace and yellow really compliment each other and I adore this sunny lemon hue . I'm not one for sticking to dark shades even through winter, I really am a sucker for bright colours.

This mermaid hem skirt has not been worn a lot I must say. I purchased it from H&M at the start of the year. I thought it looked quite expensive, as the material was very thick. However, I have not got much wear out of it. I'm kind  of regretting that now and wish I digged it out my draws earlier on. You know them draws stuffed with clothes you just don't wear. (or have worn once!)
 I'm sure everyone has those right?! 
But I really liked it paired with my sandals. perfect for a meal or drinks on the town!

Top, Topshop 
Leather Skirt, h&m
Sandals, Forever 21
Necklace, h&m
Clutch, Zara

Just a little fact of the day about myself... I'm not one for being sensible with shopping, For example, buying things I don't really need/and or lacking versatility. I usually just grab things that catch my eye. I often get drawn in by patterns and bright colours, so last week i decided I needed to turn myself into a savvy shopper and buy some items that can be mix and matched.

Now this does not have to be boring! Its all about putting the right accessories and turning it into something completely unique. The iconic example for this post has to be the one and only Kate Moss. She really does nail understated style.. Her Kate Moss for Topshop collection really reflected her style well. There were lots of statement pieces like feather boleros, embellished dresses and trophy jackets, mixed with staples such as black skinnies, loose t shirts and vests. All the key ingredients for the perfect day to day wardrobe. ( and of course partying weekends )

So with a little inspiration from Moss and a trip to westfields, I treated myself to a few staple pieces I knew would have a place in my wardrobe for a long time.
I have never really gone for stripes, but i really liked the fit of this cropped style and of course the comfy bagginess.

and yes. my shiny clutch is back yet again!!! that's what you call recycling fashion eh?

Summertime Sadness

Now that Summer has come to an end we are drawing close to October (boo), it gives me the perfect excuse to pull out the Fur Gilet. I must say, although I will miss the sun, I do love winter clothing. Fur is one of my favorite things to wear. Its cosy, warm and great to just throw on over to pop out. Now this one with no sleeves is perfect for slowy edging into the trend, to avoid looking OTT when it is still fairly mild out. You know... those kind of cardigan day temperatures?
Fur can make you look and FEEL very bulky, so its best to avoid wearing a huge woolly jumper underneath!. Especially after Christmas time... do not want to end up looking like you have gained more pounds then you already have! Ha. So here I teamed it with a loose tea dress in a light and airy fabric.

I cannot stop wearing these cut out boots at the moment. They go with just about everything in my wardrobe, and look amazing with cute ankle socks! Fishnet ones look very cool too. They are very chunky indeed and take a while to get used to especially when you are petite like myself! but never the less I still adore them! My dear old mother on the other hand is not so keen, her first reaction was "hooker boots" Thanks mum!
But anything Grunge/90s is a great purchase in my opinion.

This holographic clutch has been worn to death over the past few months. I'm sure people are getting sick of seeing me with it! but I truly have got my moneys worth. Its so versatile, easy to hold, and very roomy for all my bits and bobs on nights out. I love how it makes a statement and looks great with anything from an LBD to jeans and a T-Shirt. It even got mistaken as an Ipad case the other night.
