Bringing back 80s Pinstripe..

Last week whilst the sun was out me and Lauren went into Manchester for a little shopping trip (no surprise). The outfit I decided to put together I really liked so I thought I’d share it with you guys.

ASOS Skinny Black Denim Jacket Mens – ASOS. I haven’t really worn this since I got it. However, I thought it’d be perfect for this look even a blue denim jacket (I’m still on the hunt for the perfect one). I got this from the men’s section of Asos, if you didn’t already know I’ve always been one to shop in the mens section. I got this in an XS and for reference I’m a size 8 and the jacket is still a little oversized. I love how it looks and i love wearing it in different ways with different outfits.

Adidas Trefoil T-shirt White – ASOS. Another item I’ve not worn in a while is this logo Adidas t-shirt, I do love Adidas and this t-shirt I just thin is a basic to have in your wardrobe as it is so easy to style weather that’s with trousers jeans or even a skirt. Adidas have released some summer colour as they always do and I’ve got to say I really do want the pink one.

Calvin Klein Icon Logo Quater Socks – ASOS. As you saw in my previous outfit post I bought some Calvin socks in black well guess what your girl has them in white and I couldn’t think of a more perfect outfit to wear them with. I love how they look and I know I’m always going to be wearing both pairs.

Pinstripe Trousers – Pull & Bear. I have been looking for a pair of pinstripe trousers for SO long and when I picked these up I haven’t stopped wearing them as you can see over on my Instagram. They’ve come back into trend like they once were in the 80s and I’ve got to say I’m so glad it’s back. I think they’re a staple piece and so easy to wear casually even to dress them up. I cannot wait to style them in different ways.

Black Old Skool Vans – Office. Obviously I had to wear my Old Skools I mean I wanted to wear my Checkboards but I thought that would clash which is why I stuck to the basics. However, I think this outfit would look really good with an all white pair of air force 1s or even an all white pair of air max 97s (soon land). You can never go wrong with a pair of Old Skools though.

#NationalCreativityDay with Reeves!

As you may or may not know National Creativity Day is coming up on May 30th. We all love being creative no matter in what way that may be. I’ve decided to do a little post showing you my favourite ways to get creative with Reeves.

I’m quite passionate about fashion and I love to style pieces and changing the looks of pieces whether that’s to spice an outfit up or change the look entirely.

Reeves have a selection of creative sets and tools. I used the set of pencils and the acrylic sketch pad to draw a couple of fashion illustrations. I think is a good way to gain inspiration from seeing outfits online as well as on Instagram and draw down your ideas. I love how this turned out and with the water colour pencils I cannot wait to add colour and dimension to the illustrations.

I also tried out Scrapefoil for the first time. I love how my Gold Scrapefoil of this parrot turned out and cannot wait to try more images out and improve along the way. It’s quite hard when you first start but once you get into the swing of things it’s actually quite easy and therapeutic if I say so myself the concentration is so real.

I cannot wait to carry on with my fashion illustrations, I really want to try watercolour paint on the illustrations. As I think this will look really simplistic but effective at the same time. You can check out all the products Reeves have on the website here.They also have a selection of guides you can follow and get inspiration from by clicking here.

OOTD Five guys and good vibes…

I did a poll on Instagram and you guys voted to see this outfit of the day and that’s what I’m giving to you. I wore this outfit to the Trafford Centre on a shopping trip and I loved it! I love this outfit, and I’m so excited to give you all these details.

Criminal Damage Black Flame T-shirt – Tkmaxx – I love the brand Criminal Damage and I have done for a long time, streetwear has always been something I’ve loved. I loved the look of this tee, it gave me Thrasher vibes which I’m sure Criminal Damage were going for. I love the colour combo and I think its quite a versatile piece and can be styled in many different ways.

High waisted Harper Black Jeans – River Island – These are my favourite pair of black jeans. They fit perfectly (even though I got short) despite me having super short legs. They don’t fade and don’t loose their stretch either. You cannot go wrong with a staple pair of jeans also they’re high waisted which I can’t live without.

Black Circle Buckle Belt – Primark – Since purchasing this belt I have not stopped wearing it. It’s such an easy piece to add to an outfit and style an outfit up from it being casual to abit more glam. However, it’s perfect to add to a casual outfit to make it look like you’ve made an effort when you may not have(I mean we all have them days).

Calvin Klein Icon Logo Quarter Socks – Asos – I love having loud socks, I think it’s such an easy way to add something to an outfit. I’ve been eyeing up these Calvin Klein socks for a while after seeing them on youtuber Jordan Lipscombe. I’m so glad I bought them because they change an outfit so much. They’d look super cute with some cropped trousers and I cannot wait to try wearing them with trousers.

Black Old Skool Vans – Office – I love my vans they’re such an easy shoe to pair with outfits. If you want a casual look I think these shoes are perfect. They’re so comfy, and I can’t wait to get the Old Skool Checkered Vans because Vans you have my heart.

OOTD Frays in May…

University year 1 is officially over and I couldn’t be happier. It’s been a busy year and I’m so ready to be a little less busy and enjoy the summer (if we do get one that is).  I’ve been loving this outfit (I say that about every outfit I know). So here’s a little post about one of my favourite outfits for when it’s sunny with that little bit of breeze.

Jamie jeans with stepped hem. – Topshop. I cannot get over how perfect these jeans are for when the weather is a little warmer. I love the frayed and stepped hem as you can add accessories to one of your ankles and it looks like so much more put together. I love having jeans above my ankles just to give my shoes that extra exposure.

Gold and Pink satin Puma Suedes – OFFICE. I’ve probably already mentioned about 343 times how much I’m obsessed with these Puma’s. But it’s true. They go with nearly everything and there isn’t many shoes on the market that are similar. I love how they’re not really nude but not white it’s such a subtle colour and I think it’s crucial to have a pair of shoes like this.

White raw hem cropped sweatshirt – Missguided. There is no colour I love wearing more in the sun than white. I don’t know if it’s just me but white looks so much better when the sun is shining. I mean my tan hasn’t faded just yet so I can kind of get away with it. Sweatshirts are so easy to style weather that’s with a flannel tied at your waist or with a pair of trousers. They’re just super easy pieces to have and can literally go with anything.

Glasses – H&M – As an added accessory I added these glasses that YES I’m still obsessed with (plus they’re holding my fringe back). They’re just super cool and I don’t think I can get away with sunnies on my head just yet as even if it is sunny it still is quite cold and windy.

What are you most excited about for summer? Comment below.

Outfits I’ve been loving…

I wanted to do a look book style blog post and share what outfits I’ve been wearing throughout the week. As I think this is a great way to show how to style different pieces in various outfits.

Outfit 1 – 

Rue Saint Dominique T-shirt – River Island (sold out) – I love this t-shirt I just thought it looked way more expensive than it was. As well as having that almost designer feel to it you just cannot go wrong. Especially if it’s a dupe for something on the high street. River Island are really good at producing products that look much more expensive than they are.

High waisted Harper Black Jeans – River Island – River Island jeans are a new find for me after being glued to Topshop Jamie jeans I had to try some other jeans and the harper ones are just the same, super comfortable and really high waisted which I love.

Black Circle Buckle Belt – Primark – As a dupe for the Gucci gold belt this is so stylish I love it, so many stores have released them but if I’m honest the Primark one has to be the one that caught my eye the most. It can go with anything from jeans to trousers to even dresses.

Black Old Skool Vans – Office – The basic Old Skool Vans never fail to disappoint they can literally go with any outfit and look so stylish if you want that casual look but obviously if you wanted to dress this outfit up you could add a pair of heels/boots and you’d be good to go.

Outfit 2 – 

Basic jogging trousers – Pull and bear – There’s no trousers I love more than these. They’re so comfortable and I prefer wearing trousers so much more than jeans. Pull and bear is my favourite place to shop for trousers, as they’re just such a good fit and wash super nicely. The rolled up bit at the bottom and the jogger look is so cool I love styling these with all items.

Adidas Adibreaker Tshirt – Urban Outfitters – This T-Shirt was out of stock for so long BUT I finally got my hands on it and I LOVE IT. It goes with so many things but this has to be my favourite way to wear it. I love the old and retro look as well as the colour.

Checkerboard Slip-On Vans – VANS – I love my slip-ons so much they’re so comfy and just go with everything and can I say they’re going be such a winner in summer! I really want the Old Skool Checkerboard vans too they really need to hurry and put them back in stock.

Outfit 3 – 

EA7 Core Logo T-Shirt – Footasylum – As some of you may or may not know I’m obsessed with shopping in the mens section. I mean mens t-shirt’s are always so much cooler. So I grabbed this and I love it it’s super simplistic but I do love that almost minimal look.

UO Grey Tailored Drawstring Trousers – Urban Outfitters – I got these a while ago and they’re now sold out but the link is the closest I could find. But I love grey so much it’s such a subtle colour and so easy to work and style with. Again, I’m loving the jogger style with the drawstring.

Checkerboard Slip-On Vans – VANS – Again my checkerboard Vans went so nicely with this outfit and personally I think slip-ons look so cool with trousers.

Outfit 4 – 

Barbie x Missguided White Spliced T-shirt – Missguided – I’m obsessed with the Barbie x Missguided range as I’ve mentioned previously this is one my favourite releases. It’s the monochrome shades which are super easy to style as well as fun.

High waisted Harper Black Jeans – River Island – River Island jeans are my new favourite as I’ve said you just can’t go wrong, I’m going have to get some more colours and styles.

MA1 Bomber Jacket – Topshop (sold out) – This jacket I’ve had a while now but it’s still one of my favourites as it can go with pretty much any outfit and instantly bring it together. It’s light and stylish perfect for them slightly warmer days too.

Black Circle Buckle Belt – Primark – Again this belt goes perfect with this outfit to break the top half from the bottom I think it just adds a little bit more to a simple outfit.

Glasses – H&M – I’m obsessed with round glasses as well as sunglasses I think they’re the only frame that suites my face and now I’m just obsessed with every shade and colour way.

Nike Air Max 97 OG – JD Sports – My 97s are one my favourite shoes they’re just SO comfy and I love how they look with certain outfits I’m definitely going to need the all white colour way for summer because summer trainers are my absolute favourite.

Let me know if you enjoyed this post and I’ll be sure to do more.

Top tips for travelling abroad..

It’s been a long time, a really long time since I last sat down and did a blog post. I’ve been away for some time and had quite a busy schedule but i’m back.

As I went away I thought I’d share a couple of travelling tips with you that I noticed and a couple of hacks I noted as well.

Always read up on the important information – Most of the time we think we know when our flights due, what amount of luggage is allowed and what time we’re going to arrive but in reality you can never be too sure. Make sure you have read up precisely on all the crucial information and got all your documents and tickets at the get go.

Eat up before boarding – If your anything like me and are picky with your food grab something to eat from McDonalds or even a meal deal from Boots because for me airplane food is a no go and i can’t think of anything worse than being hungry whilst on the plane.

Have a camera/phone handy – Every moment is one to capture as cliché as it sounds but there’s nothing I love more than looking back at how much fun i’ve had and reminiscing on what we did.

Don’t be fussed about WiFi – Embrace where you are, your surroundings and the fabulous time your having you can update your status on Facebook once your back at the hotel. Explore and appreciate what’s beyond you and around you.

Wear sunscreen & mosquito spray – If your silly like me you’ll think you won’t need but when mosquitos invade the right side of your face you regret it more than ever. Lesson learnt always make sure you have the important protection measures with you at all times.

Make a list – If there’s certain things you want to do make a list in your phone or in a little book that you can carry along with you and tick off as you go. As it can be hard to remember all what you want to do in the heat of the moment and excitement.

These are just a couple of tips I wanted to share, I hope you enjoyed reading them.

What’s your favourite part about going away? Comment below.

OOTD Vans Trend…

 

As you all know I love sharing my outfits with you and I’ve got another outfit I have been loving. It’s super simple and so easy to dress up as well as dress down.

Black shearling jacket (similar) – Warehouse. This has to be my favourite coat/jacket it goes with so many outfits. Shearling have been such a trend and are so easy to show and later with.

High neck cropped jumper (similar) – h&m. I love h&m jumpers the comfort, the size and the quality. It’s always made so well and they’re again such an easy piece to style.

Black high waist Harper jeans – River Island. I kept all the outfit black as to why I wore my high waisted jeans and I love these from River Island they’re the perfect length and fit so nicely.

Checkboard slip-on vans – Vans. I loved my black suede slip-on vans and couldn’t resist purchasing the check boards vans and i did exactly that. I love them they’re so comfy and are such a fun piece to have in your shoedrobe.

Black shoulder bum bag – h&m. Finally the star of the show, i’m in love with this shoulder bag. Off white have released a bag and this bag is such a good dupe as to why I love it. As well as the pink strap I just think it’s such a nice touch, they also did a black strap but i preferred the pink. It really bought the whole outfit together.
