Summer floral

Hello everyone,

Summer actually looks like it is just around the corner and so in honour of this new found warmth I quickly whipped out an old floral top, which I discovered I had lurking in the back of my wardrobe. Don't you just love it when you discover clothes that you loved but had completely forgotten about, it's like going shopping except you get to save your cash!

So here it is a little bit of floral to brighten up your day and also my boyfriends dog managed to sneak his way into a few of the pictures (I had to let him have his 5 minutes of fame I guess) :)

Black long sleeve top - H&M
Floral top - Topshop
Jeans - Paige
Boots - Topshop
Necklace - Accessorize

Are any of you slowly bringing out your summer wardrobe?

Urban Outfitters Cut Out Styling

I am well and truly amazed that my hair wasn't all over the place in these pictures because we have been experiencing gale force winds around my house at the moment. But thankfully I got some slightly decent shots.

So today I thought I would show you all this lovely cut out dress that I got in the Urban Outfitter sales a few months back, but, I have been slightly hesitant to wear it because it is very fitted and I wasn't feeling at my slimmest for a while. However, I took up the 30 day shred over 10 days ago now at the same time as trying to cut down on junk food and I can definitely say that I have seen results. I am feeling a lot more toned and I guess you can say my confidence is showing due to the fact I am braving to wear this dress.

Anyway enough of the boring fitness talk, check out the picks below and let me know what you think...

Dress - UO
Tights - M&S
Boots - Topshop
Necklace - Topshop
Headband - UO

I apologize for my slightly freaky eyes above but I just wanted to show you a close up of this gorgeous headband from UO that again I snapped up in the sales.

Are you all still into cut out dresses? Or am I really behind the times?

80's Vibe

 Good evening everyone...

The sunshine is finally here and there is no snow to be seen. Thank god, I thought I would never be able to get out of my big jumpers!

So to embrace the sunshine I quickly threw on my new tie dye crop top from the vintage section in Topshop and then paired it with my uber cool high waisted jeans, which have been my best investment so far this year. I then contrasted the turquoise from my top with my oxblood cut out boots and an inherited vintage headband given to me by my Mum. Which gave me the added 80's vibe to this outfit. This outfit actually made me realise that as scary as it sounds it just shows how we are in fact dressing like our parents used to!

I hope you all like the outfit :)

Headband - From Mum
Top - Topshop
Jeans - Diesel
Boots - Topshop
Rings - Kilajewel
Bracelets - Assorted

Do any of you have any clothes inherited from your parents that you like to experiment with?
