OOTD: sheer stripes

Top - Primark (similar here)
Trousers - Primark (similar here)
Belt - Miss Selfridge 
Choker - Topshop 
Bag - Vintage (similar here)
Watch - Asda 

A mix of the 90's and pastels for todays look. I am loving this sheer striped t-shirt that I picked up in Primark a few weeks back, I'm never usually a wearer of pink but I decided to mix it up and go for this colour for a change. It also came in pale blue, white and black - I actually went to another Primark over the weekend and so nearly brought the black one but managed to resist (kind of wish I had now though!). 
These mint trousers were also from Primark but from a few summers ago, but I think they're still so on trend for this season and a great pair of summer trousers.

Nike Royal Blue Blazers - Gift (similar here

Yes, another Topshop sale purchase but I couldn't resist grabbing a few bargains. I'm a big fan of the basketball style tee's and loved this tropical floral number, great mix of a boyish top with a edgy twist. 
Unfortunately I can't find this top available on the website anymore but I have linked a few that are similar, as well as a few other items that I can't find the exact match for. 
Bit of a different location for today's outfit and I'm loving the change, thought I would mix it up a little and try and reflect the outfit in the location. What do you think?

FESTIVAL READY: high street picks 1



Festival season is upon us so I thought it was only right to put together a series of festival inspired outfits. I am not going to one this year but I love taking a look at what everyones wearing, the festival trend has been so big this season that there is so much to choose from on the high street. This is the first outfit I have put together but there will be more looks coming up in the next few weeks, I love these tie-dye shorts and I am so desperate for a kimono for summer - have been meaning to purchase one for ages and I love this simple crochet black one. 

What do you think of this look? 
Are you going to a festival this year?

OOTD: the jumper dress

Sunglasses - Primark 
Scrunchie - Handmade 

I came across this oversized jumper in the Topshop Sale a few days ago. First off I loved the pale lilac colour and after trying it on absolutely loved the fit of it, I think it's a perfect lightweight summer jumper and if you wear something underneath it (it is very see-through!) then it makes a perfect little jumper dress... I'm definitely a fan of the slouchy over the shoulder look. 
This necklace was made by my sister from her new jewellery line, KatyFletcherDesigns.. I have linked it to her Etsy store, which within the next week they will all be up for sale so keep an eye out! You can also check her out on Facebook and Instagram.

The weather was so hot yesterday so I had to say I was a little warm in this jumper, but it will be perfect for those cool summer evenings. 
Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Featured on www.company.co.uk for Best Dressed at the Awards!

Finally the night arrived of the Company Style Blogger Awards! I felt like I had been waiting ages since the shortlist came out, it was my first bloggers event and being a pretty established one at that I was very nervous walking in. I met up with the lovely Laura from The Pixie Cut at the train station beforehand and we made our way to the venue after consulting google maps a few times! Surrounded by some of my favourite bloggers I have to say the majority of the night I was a teeny bit starstruck but everyone I spoke to was so so lovely and friendly so I definitely relaxed after a while.

The night begun on a lovely little rooftop terrace giving out hot dogs and ice creams, luckily the weather was perfect so it was a great night for the event, we then went to explore the inside venue which was kitted out with a bar filled with bubbly drinks and cocktails, and a cute festival theme from Missguided - the sponsors of the event. There was a little area with benches, cushions and flowers then another with a rack full of amazing Missguided festival clothes - all of which made me want to get on the website and start shopping! There was also a little hair styling area and a henna tattoo section from Seekers of Sun, just as I was absorbing everything and looking around the awards had started! There was some very well deserved winners and I was especially pleased for Laura for winning Best Fashion Blog (Newcomer), a big congratulations to all the winners and runners up of the awards! 

The quality of these photos aren't great as they were taken on my phone! I considered taking my SLR but was a bit worried about carrying it on the train/tube etc, but after seeing the majority of people with one hung round their shoulder I instantly wished I'd brought mine! At least I will know for next time. 
All in all it was a really great night and a lovely first bloggers event experience! I met some lovely people and I can't wait to get involved with future events. 
A perfect end to evening was receiving this ah-mazing goodie bag worth over £50! Take a look to see all the wonderful goodies I got...

I'M OFF TO THE COMPANY STYLE BLOGGER AWARDS

Top c/o Missguided 
Trousers c/o Missguided 

The day is finally here! I am a mixture of excitement and nerves at the moment!
This will be a very quick post as I am currently on the train to London and trying to save my phone battery! 
I am extremely lucky to be able to attend the Company Style Blogger Awards tonight after being shortlisted for Best Fashion Blog (Newcomer) - I am still shocked I even get to go! Thank you so much to anyone that nominated or voted for me - it means so much considering I have only been blogging 6 months. 
Missguided very kindly gifted me this outfit for the awards tonight, I went for a top/blazer/trousers combination instead of a party style dress.. What do you think?! I absolutely love the print on these trousers so carried out the monochrome look with a little pop of neon colour. 

So off I go to my first bloggers event - a very exciting one at that! 
Wish me luck!

OOTD: like a lady

Skirt - Primark
Top - Primark 
Sunglasses - Primark 
Necklace - Primark 
Sandals - New Look

A very heavy Primark post today, but thought I would put together an outfit of the new bits I got a week or so ago. I'm feeling very feminine in this outfit, I don't usually go for very girly skirts but I am definitely loving them a lot more this summer! I came across this skirt in Primark and just instantly fell in love with it after trying it on, it just sits perfectly and I love the subtle polka dot design.
Of course I couldn't resist adding my favourite new sunglasses to the outfit, I couldn't wait to wear these as I'd be waiting an age to visit Primark to get them!

What do you think of this look?

OOTD: criss cross

checkereddress2
T-Shirt - Hand dyed from Ebay 
Choker - Topshop 
Sunglasses - New Look

This is is a little bargain dress I picked up from work a week or so ago, it went down to £15 which I think is a complete bargain for a Topshop dress! I think it's a great dress that can be brightened up for summer but also layered up when it comes to winter (yes I'm thinking far ahead but you can never rely on British weather!) with tights and a baggy cardigan. I have also developed a new obsession with choker's, the 90's are back in full swing!
