From one lazy girl to another – just assuming cos you’re here reading this – but let’s face it anyone would like to look good with minimal effort, wouldn’t they? I bring to you the lazy girls guide to getting dressed. basically, being comfy and not trying hard yet still achieving that I just threw this on look after actually just throwing it on. Shop The Post Shop my look by clicking on the images below! Lazy Girls Guide To Looking Good You probably noticed from my enthusiasm for the pyjama trend that whilst I do like to look good, I am not one to agree with the phrase it hurts to look this good because no. Unless were talking about shoes, in which case it’s a whole different ball game. Comfortable clothes are a must, I always feel more confident when I’m comfortable in what I’m wearing and have you never heard of the phrase you’re never fully dressed without a smile? Choose a Statement Piece For me, it’s this white Jigsaw jacket I’ve been living in. The collarless, tailored style finishes off any look and looks like I’ve made an effort. Even if in reality I’m wearing baggy ripped jeans and an old jumper, oh wait. . I am.  I think the fact that it’s white is what makes it more of a statement piece but anything tailored is great – never thought I’d be one to say that. Accessorize Accessories are key in my lazy girls guide for when you want to jazz up your jeans and jumper, I’ve added some fishnet socks with my Zara shoes (more on those shortly) and my trusty Zara bag which is still my favourite and will continue to be until I get my hands on a Gucci. Some think it’s a little over priced at £90 but to me it’s worth every penny – I’m down to about 1p per wear. If you did want to get something similar for a little cheaper, Mango do this incredible copy for just £39.99. So those Zara shoes are beautiful, I’ll give them that. . but let’s just take a moment to refer to my previous note about painful fashion. They cripple my feet. I’m currently wearing only trainers from pulling my foot muscle trying to keep them on, did I mention the slingback is too long for the shoe? the only way to keep them on is by clenching your toes and making a blister plaster wall underneath the strap. Not quite the look I was going for. I still wear them though, because fashion. *Jacket : Jigsaw Jumper : H&M Old Jeans : Asos Shoes : Zara Bag : Zara Socks : Asos Be a doll and follow me on Bloglovin’, it’s the best way to stay up to date with all of my posts don’t you know!?  I would love it if you also subscribe to my youtube channel and don’t forget to share this post with any fellow lazy girls!!!

Flared Sleeves And Fishnet Socks

I’m not always one for following trends, I stick to a standard uniform of blue jeans and a white t shirt and thats how I like it. These flared sleeves and fishnet socks though, they’ve got me hook line and sinker. The flared sleeves are something you can’t avoid at the moment and as one hell of a clumbsy/messy gal it’s not the most practical of trends for me, but who said fashion was practical? This and a love of saucy foods means you’ll mostly find mine dip dyed with brown stains from an unknown food source. Top : Zara / Alternative here Necklace : DIY post here Jeans : Asos Socks : Asos *Heels : Public Desire Bag : Zara SOLD OUT / Alternative here Flared Sleeves and Fishnet Socks The second I saw these fishnet socks on Hannah from Afashionfix I was a woman on a mission, must . have . socks. As with anything I’ve been loving recently I brought these whilst listening to one direction to drown out the cries of “please no!” from my trend hating boyfriend. . . he says I don’t get fashion. Personally, I’m thinking the flared sleeves and fishnet socks make pretty much the perfect combo, a little bit girly and a little bit edgy means the perfect balance. Sort of like wearing a pretty girly dress with a leather biker jacket. !   Shop The Look Each image is linked with where to buy – you can thank me later . .   Top : Zara / Alternative here Necklace : DIY post here Jeans : Asos Socks : Asos *Heels : Public Desire Bag : Zara SOLD OUT / Alternative hereAll photography by Kirk Schwarz – Website – Instagram  Thoughts on fishnet socks?

A Lesson in Spring Layering : Part 2

Continuing with spring layering, we can navigate this tricky time period together – when the weather itself doesn’t know what the hell it’s doing so how on earth should we? I was sent this laaaaavely long coat recently and wanted to style it up for a while but I do like to keep my outfits relevant ish to the weather. Spring Layering For me it’s all about the layers. Hence the name – Spring Layering – duh? But in this case I’m not talking about for warmth, I’m talking textures and fashion people. Yes, the leather jacket is a necessary layer that will keep you warm in this outfit, but that flash of black leather from underneath the lightweight coat just gives your look that certain – je ne said quoi. Combined with the croc leather bag (my must have until the Gucci is mine) it just gives a classic look a tougher edge and a little somethin’ somethin’ different. Obviously these glove shoes were a must and I’m trying to get someone to buy me a black pair from Topshop for my birthday next month. Unfortunately everyone I know hates them and refuses to buy them  . . guess they’ll have to be a gift from me to me.

A Lesson in Spring Layering : Part 1

This time of year is so tricky when deciding what to wear. It’s too warm to wear a full on coat but you go out without one and you end up regretting your decision immediately. Enter Spring Layering. I thought I would give a couple of lessons in layering for spring time to make sure you’ve got the perfect amount of warmth and maybe even jazz up those tired outfits, I mean, aren’t we all fed up of wearing those same coats every day? A lesson in Spring Layering If you’re wearing enough layers, you won’t need a coat. It’s all about layering up the knitwear for a comfy daytime look sans le coat. This cape is from Dorothy Perkins, it’s actually sold out now ..sob.. but they do have a pretty great alternative here and I’m imagining this Asos one in an all grey look and I am liking what I see – in my mind.   Cream on Cream I love layering the same colour with different textures and I’m sorry but – were this watch and cape not just a match made in heaven? I got this jumper from Sheinside a while back and I actually love it, it’s been a firm favourite since the day it arrived. The funnel neck and ribbed material are the small details that make me love it! Shop the Look Shop my spring layering look – click on the products below to be taken directly to the product pages!

My Love Affair With Trainers

Can we just take a minute to appreciate how beautiful the weather has been (on and off) recently? What better weather to shoot my new love for trainers than in the Spring sunshine? Shop The Look Shop this look by clicking on the images below! I first dipped my toe into the trainers ocean with a pair of all white Adidas Superstars. I’d been eyeing up the superstars for a while but with my clown sized feet I thought trainers would look far too manly on me. Turns out, they look pretty damn great, I have to say, I’m in love. I wear them all the time and they don’t look scruffy or chavvy – words I’ve used to describe trainers in the past. Within a week I was holding another pair of trainers in my hands. . what had become of me?! I’ve caught the trainer bug guys. Loving these pale grey Nike ones I got from Asos, they’re a very different shape to the superstars but I love them equally.
