Gladiators, you love em or hate em? I personally love them, my sisters boyfriend however thinks they belong on extras for roman films and that’s where they should stay! Love em or hate em they’re the sandal of the summer. With a range of different variations whether you want to go all out with a pair of knee highs or dip your toe into the gladiator pool with an ankle pair ( like me) there’s something for all you gladiator lovers out there! To give you (and me) some inspiration on how to wear the trend I’ve put together some of my favourite pinterest photographs. I love the knee high gladiators and they go so well with the suede dress! I’ve done a little shopping list of my favourite gladiators, I’ve got the tan Topshop ones! I love the Zara pastel green sandals, I can see how soft they are without even touching them and I think the pastel colour softens the style a bit!   Topshop Tan FIG Sandals : £39.00 | Next Black Lace up Sandals: £24.00 | Zara Beige Knee High Sandals : £99.99 | Mango Black Lace up Sandals: £19.99 | Zara Pastel Green Sandals: £49.99

White Inspiration

  I don’t know if you’ve noticed but white is EVERYWHERE at the minute! I know its a timeless colour that goes with anything and there’s always some variation of a white trend in stores each summer, but this year I feel like there’s even more than usual! To help you ( and me) to see how white can be worn, I’ve put together some of my favourite images courtesy of pinterest! I’ve also made a little white wish list! I personally LOVE the image above of the oversized white dress and knee high gladiators. I’m all about oversized clothes and I think that tan and white sit together like two peas in a pod!   When I think of white in the summer, I think of beachy hair and light flowing fabric ( see picture on right), but ( see picture on left) white works so well with structure, making the most beautifully tailored pieces.         1- Ear Jackets – Raquel Leila | 2- White Jeans – Topshop | 3- White Dress – H&M | 4- Lace Bra – Elcy Clothing | 5- White Smock Top – H&M | 6 – Snake Lace up Pumps – Topshop | 7 – Leather Messenger Bag – Zara | 8 – Bracelet – Raquel Leila

Getting Dressed with Pinterest

Getting dressed, the easiest part of the day surely? No! If your like me you take great pleasure in getting dressed and agonizing over the fine details of your outfit! When you feel like you’ve worn every item in your wardrobe at least 10 times and need some inspiration on new ways to wear.. always turn to Pinterest! I use Pinterest as my personal style guide, I have a board that I pin to when inspiration strikes with outfit ideas. I tend to find outfits that I like but that also incorporate the clothes I already own or clothes that have a likeness to mine! It’s a great way of looking at your wardrobe in a new light and helps you to mix things up a bit! My boyfriend is a particular fan of this because it means I can be ready so much quicker and my ‘floordrobe’ is no more! No more trying on everything you own on a daily basis.. hurrah! Don’t forget to add me on Pinterest so we can share outfit ideas!Here’s an example of two items of clothing I own and an outfit I’ve pinned to pair them together in the future.. And here’s one I did earlier!   Sinead x

Spring Style Inspiration

Spring is upon us! All of the new season trends are out; denim, 70’s, fringing, etc, but I generally find myself looking to social media sites like pinterest for my style inspiration. I don’t buy a whole new wardrobe every season as I’m more of a minimalist when it comes to my wardrobe anyway ( as I said before, black, white and grey) so I only buy pieces that I know I’ll love for months to come and that will fit in with what I already have. Therefore whilst I do like to keep up to date with the trends, especially for my job, when it comes to styling my own wardrobe I look to pinterest for new ways of styling old favourites! Here’s some of my favourite looks I’ve found that I will be using as my inspiration this Spring!   You can find all of the original links for my inspirational images on my pinterest boards. My definite spring staple has to be my leather jacket, as soon as the weather turns milder my coats get packed away and the leather jacket makes a strong return! I love the tonal looks, all white or all grey using different textures to create a unique look. No spring inspiration post would be complete without my shopping list for this season! I know there’s some jumpers on there but I do love a good skirt and jumper combo!!
