Unless you’ve been living in a hole this past few months you must have noticed that most things ( the best things) this summer come with some form of lace up on them. Dresses, all forms of footwear, where there’s a will there’s a lace up. I’ve dived in head first and embraced the lace up trend this week with my sister’s new H&M dress ( thanks Lauren!) and my beloved Next lace up heels. This is actually a cover up but I’ve put something underneath to maintain my modesty! Personally I think it’s far too pretty for a cover up, at just £9.99 from H&M it was a steal, unfortunately for you and me it’s now sold out, but not to fear, I’ve been trawling the web to find some look a likes. You can thank me later! I always think jewellery is key to finishing off the outfit and these minimalist pieces from  Cradle Jewellery, a jewellery designer based in New York,  are perfect for me! They’re really simple pieces which makes them super easy to wear.. they go with anything! I love the rings, I got a midi ring and a normal one, they work perfectly together! I’m also an absolute rebel and love mixing silver and gold jewellery ( sorry if this makes you cringe you weirdo)!   Dress: H&M  | Shoes: Next | Earrings: Cradle Jewellery | Bracelet: Cradle Jewellery | Ring: Cradle Jewellery | Midi Ring: Cradle Jewellery | Sunglasses: Bali

Boyfriend Tee

My absolute style staple that I can’t live without is my favourite white t shirt, courtesy of H&M menswear! As someone who appreciates a good white t shirt, I have to admit that I pick up my favourite pieces in the menswear section. This is my favourite boyfriend tee, the linen mix means the fabric has a marl effect look which is slightly see through, but not too much! Mens tees just fit so much nicer in my opinion, I’m someone who prefers loose clothing, so mens t shirts are perfect as they aren’t fitted. Womens t shirts always seem to be made of uber stretch material with a fitted shape and it just doesn’t do it for me! I’ve dressed it up with my gorgeous new elilla Jewellery layered gold necklace and pearl ring, delicate gold jewellery is the perfect finishing touch to any outfit! I love my new Next lace up wedges, I’m not usually a wedges kinda gal but these ones are an exception! These paired with my leather look Topshop jeans give a plain white tee a smarter look.   Get my Brown and Berry bag now for just £149.00 whilst it’s still on offer! Offer runs out on 30/05/15!

Birthday Wishlist

This Saturday it’s my birthday! I’m going to be 25 which I have been informed ( far more times than necessary) is a quarter of a century. I’m definitely not ready to embrace adulthood yet but I will take the presents thank you very much! I know it’s a bit late but I thought I would put together a little birthday wishlist ( Mum are you reading this?). I wont actually be here for my birthday as my ever so thoughtful boyfriend is whisking me away to a surprise location ( how the hell am I supposed to pack for that!?) to celebrate in style.   1 – I’m a big fan of fringing, this cute little clutch is great for summer and as a jeans and t shirt kinda gal, it’s the perfect finishing touch – Zara : £29.99 2- I’m still loving Next, they are so on it this season and this cute little dress would be perfect for if my weekend away is in the sun! – Next: £50.00 3 – My one true love in life is notebooks. I buy them on a  weekly basis, each one has a specific use I promise. As a result I have at least 10 notebooks on the go at any time and of course I’m always on the lookout for a new beauty like this one – Zara Home: £15.99 4- This Daniel Wellington watch is perfect for summer, love the blue and white strap. I always prefer men’s watches to ladies, I like the chunkier style and the large face – Daniel Wellington: £149.00 5- In my opinion, you can never have too many candles. Diptyque are the creme de la creme of the candle world, even if you don’t burn it just look at that pretty packaging – John Lewis: £40.00 6- This elcy clothing bra is almost too beautiful to wear under your clothes! Love the gold straps and perfect for if your a small boobed lady like me – Elcy Clothing : £25.00 7- Love these lace up shoes, the best Aquazzura dupes I’ve seen. If I don’t ( or someone else doesn’t) get them I know in a months time when they’re all sold out I will be kicking myself – Topshop : £62.00

Classic Tote

  This week I was blessed to receive the most beautiful gift in the form of this classic tote bag. The lovely girls over at Brown and Berry sent me the ‘CHERRY‘ tote to try out and I honestly haven’t put it down since the day I got it! It’s so versatile with a removeable chain and grab handle, and in black and gold I don’t think there’s any outfit it doesn’t finish off perfectly! I’m a huge fan of croc skin so the beautifully finished front is the icing on the cake for me! For this look I dressed it down a bit for a smart/casual look with my favourite Primark denim skirt and my fluffy jacket. This jacket is still in the sale for £15 in H&M stores and makes the perfect light Spring layer! To finish the look off I’ve added my old faithful Topshop shoes, I’ve had these for years and have worn them to death! Totally contemplating buying a new pair the same.. is that crazy? If your as in love with this classic tote as me, make a quick decision whilst it’s reduced to just £149 from £235 for a limited time only! Buy it here!

H&M Jumper

I first saw this jumper on the beautiful Lucy Watson from Made in Chelsea and after researching where it was from and deciding that £39.99 was probably a bit much for a jumper from H&M, I left it. It caught my eye again last month and I decided that actually this isn’t a case of want, I do need this jumper. Of course by this time it had sold out everywhere in the UK in any size but 16. I checked Depop, I checked Ebay, I rang stores to double check, I even had my poor boyfriend go into half of the London stores! So obviously I got the jumper ( I’m wearing it), unknown to me my lovely boyfriend had been checking the jumper regularly online to see if it came back in stock, and one did! It’s a size 6 which I normally wouldn’t order, but as it’s an oversized style it fit’s perfectly! I’ve styled it with my trusty marks and spencers sandals and white jeans ( Primark with some DIY rips!) to give it a more spring summer feel!       These silver pieces of jewellery from Shop JJDR finish the look off perfectly! I’m in love with this barbell bracelet, I think it would look great with an evening look with one on each wrist.
