How I Style: Crop Top

Heya! I bought this vintage crop top last month from eBay and haven't actually got round to wearing it out. Since I nearly forgot about it's existence, I though that I would film how I would style the crop top. I love the interesting print on the fabric and the colours are really vibrant. This crop top is slightly longer on the body than most i've tried on but only by about an inch or two. I think they look great paired with anything high-waisted...a skirt, leggings, jeans or shorts. I hope you enjoy the video!

Sneaky Sneaky


I was trying to do an action shot! Haha 
Hey Guys!

I hope you're all as excited as I am for the weekend! I'm a little under the weather at the moment and I can't wait to get some much needed ZZZs. Just a quick post today which is also a sneak peak of a video I filmed today. I created 4 different looks with the Vintage crop top and hopefully (once edited) the video will turn out decent! I'm still new to youtube and creating videos but I hope you enjoy the video when it gets posted. I bought these plimsoles from River Island yesterday and initially they weren't very comfortable to wear but today they've suddenly become a dream to walk in! Hope everyone has an incredible weekend!

P.S. I'm currently listening to Goyte's album Making Mirrors which is so darn good! Definitely recommend you have a listen :)

OOTD: Casual

Heya! A really quick OOTD post which I filmed yesterday. Since starting my new job i haven't had much time to actually take photos so instead will probably be doing a lot more filming in the mornings & editing and uploading in the evenings. Hope you've all had a great day despite the horrid rain. I'm currently in bed fighting the urge to find that Vanilla Häagen-Dazs ice-cream my mum bought!

As i patiently wait for payday to arrive, i've been pretending that all my online wish-lists will magically appear in my closet and that magically there will be no charges made to my debit card. Right at the top of my list were these AHHHH-MAZING jeans from Missguided. They also come in white with black crosses and i can't wait to get my paws on both! I can't wait to see what i can style these jeans with, so I got a little carried away and created a couple of looks for inspiration! 

Look 1
Clockwise from top left: ASOS Multipack Plain Band RingsASOS
Red Liv Plaform, Nasty Gal 
Fringed Knit Tank, Forever 21
Triangle Stud Collar, Miss Selfridge 

Look 2
Clockwise from top left: Neon Spike Necklace, New Look
White Hendrix Tank, River Island

These jeans are really versatile and it wasn't a struggle to find items to pair them with. Seriously how amazing are those red platforms??! I've been in love with hats for a long time now and the UNIF Pyramid Cap is just amazing. I've just got my hair done in long and thick braids and can't wait to finally not worry about hat-hair! Hope you're all having a great weekend - i'm currently watching TV waiting for The Voice to come on.

KIMONO Reverse SHIRT Forever 21 SHORTS Topshop

Can you tell the sun is attacking my eyes? Every year when the weather turns warmer, i'm reminded that I really should have invested in a pair of prescription sunglasses - or better yet, get over my irrational fear of contact lenses! I've tried THREE times to get used to contacts but the thought still brings a sick feeling to my stomach. Anyone know of any cures?

I bought this amazing kimono on eBay and i'm so in love. I swear i might have a bigger attachment to my clothes and shoes than i do to some people - bad isn't it? I'm a sucker for anything with studs or spikes and when i noticed that the studded detailing runs along the circumference of the sleeves and on the back in a triangle shape, I declared war against all the other bidders! And here i am today with kimono number three - only another 100 more or so to rival Gillian Zinser's amazing wardrobe on 90210.

Cherry Cord

 TOP & CORD TROUSERS New Look DRESS (worn as blazer) Topshop 

I had actually planned on posting this last week but i've been so busy with job applications and going out far too much. I love the  vibrancy of these cords and haven't stopped wearing them since I got them. I don't quite know what the back of my hair is doing in the first picture but oh well! The job applications have finally paid off and i am now officially employed! I'm currently nursing a very sore ankle which I sprained at kickboxing yesterday! :( Hope you're all having a great weekend!

Mini Haul

Hey guys! Just a quick post with my most recent purchases. I was actually meant to post this about a week and a half ago but forgot to upload it. This weekend has been amazing and I still haven't recovered from it. Now that it's nearly over, I have to get back to reality and continue the hunt for a new job (yay!). Hope everyone's enjoyed their easter weekend!

Tropic Max


IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! I'm 21 today and today has already been such a lovely day. I haven't actually left my bed yet, so i'm going to show you what I wore to my friend's birthday on Sunday since a shot of my dressing gown and wayward hair would be too embarrassing! We went to an amazing tapas bar where we were served pinchos and the most delicious sangria ever! The weather was lovely on Sunday, and wanting to steer clear of my 'above the knee' rule for skirts and dresses I wore this lovely maxi skirt. 

I didn't ask for anything for my birthday because there is honestly nothing I want. I'm so thankful for everything i've got already and thought i'd give my mum a (short) break from my regular wish lists. I'm not celebrating my birthday properly until Friday but tonight i'm off to a magazine launch with some friends! :)

SHIRT Next LEGGINGS American Apparel BLAZER Zara BROGUES Steve Madden

Hey guys, I hope you all had a brilliant weekend! I got these amazing brogues in TK Maxx on Friday and I couldn't wait to style them with my Disco Pants. I got them for a bargain £29.99 which is great considering they retailed at £80 - I'll certainly be shopping there more often! I've been slacking with the blogging lately but I have got lots of posts lined up so there's no excuses now :)
