Hello all and welcome back to another outfit of the day post, hope you are all well over, or at least trying to get over the huge, epically hyped about ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’. I think I am, I think. So as we all know for at least a month before the release and at least a week after the sudden ‘grey’ colour in fashion seemed to have outweighed rest of the colours all together.
So hey I thought id play my part in it too, I didn’t go as excessive; just a little number for me was enough.

Slightly late summer outfit post here, I decided to come back home up North for a few weeks and what did I do, yes I left my laptop at home. Soooo I kind had to had to wait around until I could grab someone else’s.
Remember those days, when we had the sun shining and the warm temperatures, where you would simply walk out in a t-shirt and complain about it being too hot? Yeah it seems like a while ago, especially now that were plagued with rain, more rain and guess what, yes more rain! The joy! I don’t know if it’s the same down south, but up north it is definitely grey and miserable!
Just looking through these few pictures, makes me want to cry and so desperately want to go back to the few weeks of summer we did have, I miss wearing sandals, eating watermelons and dining in the garden!
Enjoy probably the last summer post; you’re not going to see one for another whole year.

Considering we live in one of the most weather challenged countries in the world, it’s always a nice surprise when finally we are graced with a few weeks of the summer sun.
The trends this summer aren’t as daring as the past few summers, now that the designers have caught up on the reality behind the British summer, and how abruptly our weather can change during the day. Go out looking like a Greek goddess, come back looking like a windswept, haggard nightmare!
Not saying this summer, its still not about the strappy dresses, denim shorts and kimonos, because it is, however it’s supplied with a good dosage of lightweight outerwear, to help aid us during the day.
During the day I’m all for denim shorts and strappy tops, but in the evening with the cool breeze and the fading sun, I prefer something a little warmer. Pairing these printed trousers alongside a simple print t-shirt and brocade like lightweight jacket, leaves me feeling cool enough for the warm evening.

Orange is the new black? Well it is for spring & summer anyway! Whether it’s seen on your jumpers, jeans, scarfs, lips, cheeks or eyes. Orange is the shade to be seen in this summer! So make sure you find the perfect shade for you and start experimenting!

One of my favourite shirts at the moment, picked up this beauty from Primark and its one those pieces that you can wear with pretty much anything. I love layering it under jumpers and coats, or even wearing it alone. The shoes I wasn’t sure of when I first bought them and was actually thinking of returning them but then once they were on, I knew i had to keep them! They boyish and chunky and I love to wear them with something extremely feminine and create my own style, I like to add a little punk to my pretty!
Well hello there and may I say a happy 2014! Aah another new year is upon us, is it just me that remembers January 2013 like it was yesterday??! Time is going way too fast for my liking; we need to slow things down a little. Anyway my dears, I do hope you all had good new years and are ready to get on with your start to the year.
We had and are still having a pretty bad winter, like that’s a major surprise from all the previous years of harsh winters we’ve endured, and I clearly don’t point out the obvious (Sorry).
Coats. Coats. Coats. I am in love with coats. I need to have a new one every year and where do I find a new one every year? In the sale people, that’s where. This has become like a tradition for me now, purchasing a new coat for the following year in the xmas sales, I mean it makes sense right? Why buy a coat that’s £125 when I know I can get it for £40?!
This is the new baby I bought; I like my coats to be simple, dark and most of all warm. Comfort comes first for me, well in the winter anyway! Coat was £100 and went down to £40, from Topshop. The black and white stole is also in the sale from river island, was £20 and went down to £12.

Hey guys, I apologize for the lack of posts recently, a lot has been going on and frankly not had any time as well as lack of inspiration. However I am now back to gently ease you back into reading my, oh so brilliant posts ( yeah I’m that good!)
All the items in this post, I have recently seen in store/online and I NEED them in my life, you can see that not all of them are spring/summer related *Whispers* I don’t know if you know but it was snowing recently??! This has made me lose ALL hope in Britain ever experiencing spring this year. This is my way of easing myself into summer wear (When the sun eventually arrives!).
