So if you read my post last week you will already know about my win with Next, I was invited to the ShoeboxJukebox party hosted by Next and Company Magazine. This also included a free pair of shoes for me and my guest to wear the the event with the promise of free cocktails, and plenty more opportunities to win shoes galore.. free shoes and cocktails?! an offer no woman can resist! The obvious choice was my sister Lauren from elcy clothing, and after much deliberation we selected our shoes and started planning our outfits! We decided on a smart/casual look so we could take our looks from day to night, we didn’t want to miss out on a day of shopping in London! The theme of the party was around the ShoeboxJukebox, we had to photograph our favourite shoes with the hashtag #shoeboxjukebox, and if your shoes won, the jukebox would go crazy! We had a great time socializing with other bloggers and the girls at Next, and managed to come away with three new pairs of shoes between us, and a good bag to die for!

Grey. On Grey. On Grey

  So after my post last week on spring style inspiration I was inspired to recreate some of the tonal looks. I love the colour grey and most of my item’s of clothing are grey so it’s the perfect colour to try this look with! If I hadn’t seen the pictures on pinterest I wouldn’t have thought about putting together an entire outfit made up of one colour (usually I would try to avoid this) but I think it works really well, especially with the addition of some black accessories! I think this is definitely something I will be using again in the future, I also have a lot of white and a new denim shirt from H&M that’s crying out for a double denim look! The grey works so well because the shades are really similar but just different enough, the different textures sit really nicely together. My t shirt is actually mens, I always favour mens t shirts because they fit just how I want. The fabric is softer and they’re made to hang rather than hug! This ones from Topman yonks ago! These jeans are actually my worst nightmare.. jeggings.. but you can’t tell that they aren’t jeans unless you can see the waistband as they’re made of jean material and not that super stretchy fabric! I got them from H&M for just £12.99 which I couldn’t say no to, I’ve paired them with my bargain of the century mules from Primark for £14.00.. drop what your doing right now and go and get yourself some! Coat: Topshop Old ( Similar Here) | T Shirt: Topman Old (Similar Here) | Jeggings: H&M | Mules: Primark (Similar Here) | Watch: Larsson & Jennings | Hat: H&M  From now on I will be posting on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

The ‘IT’ Bag

If there’s one thing that all us girls aspire to it’s to own our very own ‘it’ bag. A piece of the glamorous lifestyles we see in magazines, something that finishes every outfit off and makes us feel a million dollars. Of course the original ‘it’ bag has to be the classic Chanel.. no post about handbags would be complete without it! For most of us the price tags make these just a dream, but the high street is starting to do some pretty great bags with some curiously similar features to designer goodies giving us regular girls our very own slice of handbag heaven! I’ve done some digging and found my favourite high street handbags and paired them with their designer counterparts!   I’m sure there’s some kind of tying trick you can do to make that front bit look the same if you want to go the whole hog! Chanel: SOLD OUT| Zara: £89.99 Mansur Gavriel: SOLD OUT| H&M: £19.99 Chloe: £970.00 | Next: £25.00 Sinead x

The Relaxed Shirt

I brought this shirt from H&M a couple of weeks ago and it’s so easy to wear that I’ve already had so much wear out of it! I was inspired by a shirt I saw some of my favourite bloggers wearing a few months back that was a similar shape but with red and blue stripes, so I’d been keeping an eye out for something like this and thought I’d hit the jackpot when I saw this beauty! It’s actually called ‘Relaxed Shirt’ which I think sum’s it up perfectly! It’s so easy to wear and the sort of thing you can just throw on with a pair of jeans, I’ve finished the look off with my beige suede jacket that I’ve been dying to wear since winter!! Can we just talk about the weather for a minute?! I love this look with heels for casual drinks or dinner as well. The slightly longer length of it means I’ll also be wearing it in the summer as a lightweight jacket – multi functional! Shirt: H&M | Jacket: Old | Jeans: Topshop | Bag: Zara | Boots: H&M Sinead x

Charity Shop Find

Can you believe this cardigan is from a charity shop? Me neither! I’ve learnt to be quite thrifty recently and couldn’t believe my eyes when I walked into Cancer Research and saw this beauty hanging up! It’s so soft and the quality is amazing, for a mere £5.00!! I love the length, though it’s a bit tricky to wear with jackets so might be worn a lot more when the weather get’s better! I’m not a big fan of colour, so I think camel is the perfect accent to my black, white and grey wardrobe! I’ve dressed it up a bit with my black coated jeans from Topshop, and my heeled sliders but it’s the sort of cardigan you can wear with pretty much anything! I’ve always been one to pop in to charity shop’s on occasion, but finding gems like this remind me that you can find such great quality items at a fraction of the price, plus no one else will have it!   Cardigan: Cancer Research | T shirt: H&M | Jeans: Topshop | Heels: H&M Old | Bag: Zara| Watch: Larsson & Jennings   Sinead x
