Orange totes and tassles

Hi guys,

I didn't upload a post today so I thought I would make sure I did today. I never really know what to name some of my posts so excuse the sometimes random titles. 

Moving on, the jumper I am wearing is from Zara and it cost £10 in the sale. I was with some friends a week or so ago and my friend pulled it out of a pile of sales clothes and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it. It is  really light thin fabric and I just love tassles! 

I hope you all had a wonderful day :) and thank you for taking the time out to read and see my outfit posts.

Floral Pegs and Studs

I have shown several outfits featuring this style of trouser in different prints. They really are so comfortable and I love peg trousers with fun prints. I mostly wear my peg trousers during the evening for dinner or for a lunch date with a friend. 

These particular trousers caught my eye because of the beautiful floral print. I also love that a large element of them is black making them really easy to team with other colours. The fabric is quite light making them great to wear when the weather here is a little hotter. Do you own any trousers this style?

The Date Series:The Peplum Duo

A friend and myself were having a chat the other day and we found that we both agreed that dressing for a date was challenging. You find yourself in a situation were you do not want to seem like you are trying to hard, you don't want to look like you spent the last 10 hours preparing for the date, but then you do not want to look as though you have made no effort. Also, you want to dress appropriately for were you are set to be going. With all this in mind we decided that it would be fun to do a few posts together featuring outfit ideas for specific dates, so 'The date Series' was created. 

I still found it challenging to decide on certain looks for a date however it helped to bare in mind the kind of location that the look would be aimed at. 
This first look we both decided would be great for a nice dinner/ drinks. 
Do you ever find dressing for a date a challenge or is it just us? 
Let me know what your tips are for preparing for an evening out.

Winter Must Have: Leather Pants

I have been on the hunt for a nice pair of leather skinny pants for quite a while now. Leather pants are a staple/ must have for Autumn/Winter. Leather pants are not the type of article of clothing you throw out after a season, they are likely to stay with you for as long as possible.

I know that finding a pair of leather trousers at a reasonable price is probably unachievable but I would like to not pay an extortionate price if it is possible...
However I do think that a good pair is worth the extra investment. 

Here are a few images of some celebrities and bloggers wearing leather pants. 



LOVE Rhianna in this photo!!



So, what are your thoughts on leather pants?

#5 The Shorts Series: Autumn is soon upon us

This is the last post from the shorts series. This look is aimed at Autumn type weather, teaming denim shorts with a heavier knit cardigan. If it were to be very cold you could just add a pair of tights for some extra warmth. I feel like most of my posts lately have featured shorts... I just love the comfort of shorts and there versatility. However my upcoming posts are NOT featuring shorts so that should be interesting. I also have a few posts coming up that are aimed at a certain event that we most struggle with (well at least I do). That is all I am saying for now, just keep your eyes peeled.

Crop tops and Pegs

I love peg style trousers because they are so comfortable and easy to wear. I am also a massive fan of prints whether it be floral or aztec so I was immediately drawn to these trousers. These trousers look really great with flat pumps and sandals as well as heels.
 Do you own any trousers this style and how do you like to wear yours?

Lets get hippy

Today wasn't anywhere near as hot as it has been lately so I had to layer up.
 I decided to team my denim jeans with my denim shirt, a crime I often commit. I just love wearing this denim shirt like a jacket and styling it in different ways. Let me know if you would like me to do some posts on how I style my denim shirt with different looks.

#4 The Shorts Series: Casual Autumn Day Out

Another shorts series.... it is not over just yet. So I have already posted 3 previous looks with denim shorts, one was a day to night look, the other was an evening look and the third look was a statement day outfit, if you haven't seen them then scroll down. 

This #4 look is transitional, leaving Summer behind and entering Autumn, something I am not looking forward to. With this outfit if you throw on a pair of heels (not literally, not to sure how that would work) this look immediately 
becomes more dressy. What do you think?

Another day of sun in the city

Living in the UK you find that we do not often get many days of sunshine and the 
weather is always a big topic of discussion. When the sun is out, as it was on this day, I make the most of it and try to spend as much time outdoors. I sometimes wish I lived
in a hotter country but for now it remains a wish. Anyway, I have actually never worn a sequin skirt casually before so this was new to me. I was inspired by a photo I saw of someone wearing a sequin skirt, casual T-shirt and trainers. I like the idea of dressing something down that otherwise would be really formal. What do you guys think?

A day of sushi and sangrias

Today I met up with a friend of mine for Lunch. The weather was beautiful which meant we were able to sit outdoors and enjoy the sunshine. Spring/Summer is probably my favourite season in terms of fashion because it feels a lot less effortless than Autumn/Winter. Obviously this is a personal preference and I know many of my friends would beg to differ. What season do you prefer? I hope you all had a great weekend.

#3 The Shorts Series: Crosses and Chains.

I have seen the ankle chains on quit a few online stores yet never thought they would be something I would wear. However, I don't really have any rules when it comes to my style, I wear a million colours in one look, so wearing ankle chains wasn't too out of the ordinary.Who cares right? Anyway, this look is a little more edgy than my normal day to day style but I thought it would be nice to show a completely different look. 
What do you think?
I said shorts were really versatile and this is just one example as in my previous shorts series post #2 I styled the same shorts for an evening look.
