Jumpsuit - New Look // Heels - Primark

I wore this to my best friends birthday party last Saturday. I found it in New Look a few weeks back and I couldn't resist it, costing just £23 which I thought was so reasonable! I am in love with the palm tree print this summer and the monochrome makes it so easy to wear. I went for bright red nails and I know if I could get away with it, I would totally wear bold red lips too. It's one of those pieces of clothing that doesn't need any accessorizing like a pretty necklace, it works perfectly alone. I also can't wait to style it down for a more day look too! What do you think?

Chi Chi Harriet Dress* - ChiChi // Heels - Primark

I am so in love with this ChiChi dress, and I wish I had a prom to wear it to! Prom season recently began and I am sat on my facebook homepage stalking friends of friends photos purely to drool over gorgeous dresses! Being year 12, we don't have a prom at the end of the year, which sucks!At our school and sixth form the big prom is year 11, this is where you pull all the stocks out! Then there's a slightly more casual one at the end of year 13 which I'm super excited for. This dress is just so pretty, I love the lace detailing and sweetheart neckline (ooh look at that fancy dress term - someones been watching too much say yes to the dress on TLC!)

Dress* - Sugarhill Boutique // Bag - Primark // Sandals - Next

When I wear this dress from Sugarhill Boutique, I feel like I should be having a picnic in a big field of flowers somewhere. I love the off the shoulder style of dresses, although I definitely could have done with ironing this first! I'm still debating over this peachy colour on me, I feel like it doesn't quite suite my skin tone, but it is gorgeous nonetheless.

In other news, on Friday I finally got the call I'd been waiting for for almost a year now! After endless failed interviews, I've finally bagged myself a job! I am so happy to finally be earning money for myself and hopefully it'll help my confidence grow too!

Got you figured out

Cardigan - H&M // Top - Primark // Jeans & Shoes - Topshop // Bag* - LYDC

Where has the sunshine gone?! It was absolutely gorgeous last week, but the sun seems to have disappeared and left us with clouds, muggyness and that not-quite-hot-enough but not-quite-cold-enough weather! I've lived in my jeans for sixth form this week, I'm desperate to get my summer clothes on! I also received this bag last week, and it was just in time. I'm fed up of my backpack for school and was after a new bag which was an ideal size. My Zara office city bag, although beautiful, broke after only a few months and was also surprisingly unpractical! This bag from LYDC is literally the perfect size - there's enough space for some books, a folder, a lunch and a few other necessities! I am head over heels for it!

I also need some help from you technology geeks - how can I avoid losing the quality of my photos when cropping and stitching them together?!

Birthday Celebrations

Wednesday, 18 June 2014

Extremely sorry for the picture-heavy post, I'm just eager to show you guys everything! On Saturday, I finally celebrated my 17th birthday with all of my bestest girlfriends..
 ME: Dress - H&M // Heels - Primark || ALICE: Playsuit & Necklace - Primark // Heels - Topshop

Of course, an OOTN was necessary! I was hoping to find a dress a bit more dressy, rather than one as casual as this skater dress, but I'm still super happy with this, which I got in Westfield a few weeks back. The print and colour is perfect for summer! Alice was also super impressed with her bargain playsuit from Primark so I feel it's necessary to brag about it in this post! Only £8!

My mums friend also made me some stunning cupcakes, which are just too pretty to eat! They seemed to go down a treat though, so much easier than a big birthday cake! If you're interested in her company you can find her facebook here and take a look at all the other amazing designs she does!

Finally some photos of all my amazing friends, aren't they all gorgeous?! I feel super lucky to have such brilliant people in my life!

Kimono & Cami - New Look // Skirt - H&M // Bag, Necklace & Heels - Primark

Last week my friend Alex threw a party to celebrate her birthday and end of exams! I had no party dresses left in my wardrobe so ended up going for a simple outfit and accessorized it with a more statement necklace from primark. It has the prettiest pastel colours. I'm also loving this kimono at the moment, I've found so many kimono's are so expensive when they're not that much, but this was just £20 so a bit of a steal really!

Crop Top* - OASAP // Jeans - Topshop // Sandals - New Look

Every girl needs a pair of white jeans in their life this summer. They're ridiculously risky but I just love them. I really like the simplicity and monochrome of this look, but I'm looking forward to styling these jeans with some more bold colours! How would you style white jeans?

Summer Essentials: A Day at the Races

Wednesday, 11 June 2014

Multiway Bra* - Marks & Spencer // Dress* - ChiChi // Clutch - Primark // Wedges - H&M // Primer - Superdrug // Stila Eyeshadow Palette* - Marks & Spencer // Lip Liner* - Marks & Spencer // Lipstick - Bourjous @ Superdrug // Fake tan - Make Believe

Today, after being contacted by M&S, I will be doing a Summer Essentials list for one of many summer occasions - a day at the races! A few summers ago I went to the races, although too young to enjoy everything the races are about, I still really enjoyed the day and I definitely learnt a few things about do's and don'ts! First and foremost, to go with your classy dress, you need a Multiway Bra*. Nobody likes bra straps hanging out now do they?! Multiway bras are ideal, you can change over the straps to fit any style dress you have, and I think every girl needs one in their wardrobe! If that doesn't take you fancy, there are many other bras here. Now for the heels, stilettos are a big no no. You will most probably sink in the grass and you're even more likely to fall over flat on your bottom at least once, especially with the influence of alcohol! Wedges are a much safer bet. Then a clutch is required to complete the look! Now, to go with the gorgeous look, you need a summery make-up look! Firstly, a primer is essential to keep the make-up put throughout the most likely humid day! The Stila Eyeshadow Palette* is the perfect palette with some gorgeous bronzey shades which can be darkened up for a more dramatic smoky eye. And to finish the make-up look, I feel a red lip is totally necessary. Use a bold red lipstick and a Lip Liner* to keep the lippy on for an extra long time. My last essential is some fake tan, a gorgeous glow will definitely complete the look. Just be careful not to go patchy - get a spray tan if you're unsure!

What are your summer essentials for a day at the races?

Shorts* - OASAP // Crop Top - ASOS // Sandals - Next

When I saw American Apparel bring in these sunflower shorts my heart sung with joy.. until I saw the price tag. But do not panic my friend, OASAP have them for just a fraction of the price! They are the cutest little shorts, perfect for summer, and I can't see how these are any different to AA's pair. I'm super excited to get a good wear out of these over the next few months.

Weekly Want

Saturday, 7 June 2014

This weeks weekly want is this gorgeous cold shoulder dress from Motel. I loved last years cold shoulder trend and I know I'll still be wearing it this season. It's a real casual dress and the colour is just stunning. What do you think?

Tee* - OASAP // Jeans & Flats - Topshop

I've finally finished exams! I am revision free for the next 3 months and I cannot wait to party, rave and sleep! I've got lots planned over summer, and although I have to go back to sixth form to start studying A2 next week, I'm looking forward to lots of memories being made in the sun! This is what I wore for my last exam, hence the tee and comfort vibe. I'm pretty sure I'd live in baggy tee's for the rest of my life if it was deemed acceptable!
