I'M NOT YOUNG AND AFRAID

Jacket* // Freestyle Xtreme
Necklace // Primark
Top* // She Likes
Disco pants // American Apparel
Bracelet // eBay
Spiked Damsels // Jeffrey Campbell
Rings // Rachael Sudlow, Native Feathers*, eBay, Topman

I would usually wear a top like this with a skirt but I couldn't quite find one that matched and didn't want to pair it with the boohoo skirt I've featured in a few outfits.  I think it does look good with my disco pants though and absolutely love this Jack Daniels jacket!  I've not seen anything similar to it before and if you've been a follower of my blog for a while you'll know I absolutely adore anything with back detail!  I do like my disco pants with this outfit but as of recently I've been staying away from them.  Don't get me wrong, I love the shape and the quality is good but when I think about it, it's disappointing that I spent so much on them when the elastic is coming apart, and they've never fit me properly (too short and baggy ankles).  Why did I buy them before any dupes were available!? waaa

1/ Drop Dead varsity   2/ New sparkly shoes from eBay
3/ Failed at sweetheart nails   4/ Drop Dead unicorn jumper ootd

7/ Crown & Glory bow   8/ Iced mocha after work

Had quite a busy week this week!  I'm currently doing exam sessions in my graphic design and photography lessons so college has been excruciatingly boring lately but on the bright side, it's mine and my boyfriend's two years on Tuesday and apparently he's got me a really amazing present so I'm ridiculously excited to receive it, and to give the present I got for him.  I'm also working on getting him to do either the boyfriend tag or boyfriend makeup tag and he's almost considering it so maybe expect a video featuring Alex's soon!

Summer Trend: Pastels Galore!


Hat - Topshop // Socks - New Look // Top - La Garconne // Shorts - Runway Dreamz // Necklace - Delilah Dust // Lips - Topshop // Converse - JD Sports

Dress - Topshop // Lacquer - OPI // Earrings - Topshop // Bag - Grafea // Converse - JD Sports // Cuff - Native Feathers


Playsuit - Motel // Lacquer - OPI // Jacket - Topshop // Quartz - Delilah Dust // Socks - Topshop // Converse - JD Sports

I've never really done one of these posts but as the summer is coming up I wanted to give it a try! I tried styling every outfit around these awesome mint converse from JD Sports (just because I think they're totally awesome, and are also reduced to £40!) and kept to a pastel theme, by the end of it I was a little depressed at my bank balance as I'd been looking through so many pretty clothes but I am very happy with how they all turned out!  Which look is your favourite?

YOUR MIND ON A FANTASY

Earrings // Primark
Necklace // Tiffany
Fishnet top // Casall
ACID Tee* // Thriftette
Rainbow shamballa bracelet* // Silver Supermarket
Shorts* // Missguided & customised by me
Spiked Damsels // Jeffrey Campbell
Rings // Rachael Sudlow, Thriftette*, Regal Rose*, Native Feathers*, vintage, market

I wore an outfit similar to this to the Waiste X Thriftette blogger party and I really love the crop top with fishnet underneath.  I've seen a lot of bloggers incorporating fishnet into their style and when my mum said she had an old fishnet gym top I immediately whipped it from her wardrobe!  I customised these shorts myself at the Missguided event and really love the rich plum colour of them, they're super stretchy and only £20!  What do you think of the fishnet trend, would you dare to wear?

Missguided Summer Line Preview



After attending the Missguided event earlier this month, I was thrilled to have the very first preview of the summer line lookbook pop up in my inbox.  I really loved the pieces I saw at the event, so to see them on this gorgeous model against the beachy-urban scenery of Barcelona, I couldn't resist sharing some of the images with you guys.  I'm especially loving the neon brights, high-shine silver and gold accents and the sport-luxe styles that are coming through, making me very excited for summer!

I'M ALWAYS IN THIS TWILIGHT

Moon earrings // Thrifted
Unicorn Jumper* // OASAP
Necklace // DIY
Bracelet* // Silver Supermarket
Shorts // Vintage Levi's via UO
Pumps // Carvela
Rings // Rachael Sudlow, eBay, markets, Vivienne Westwood
Lipstick // Lime Crime D'Lilac

Ladies (and gentlemen?) I present to you the magical unicorn jumper of dreams! It's from OASAP, a site that I've got a lot of gems from in the past, and it's so super soft and warm, it's almost a shame that it's become more sunny recently!  I thought that this look was too pastelly to be bombarded with my usual spiky black shoes so slipped on my mums gorgeous nude gem pumps from Carvela (which I should have got a close up of - doh!) and my awesome 90s-esque moon earrings I picked up for 50p at a car boot sale, I'd been looking for something similar for so long so was over the moon (geddit) when I found them!
