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. Jumper: H&M | Jeans: Primark with DIY Rips | Sandals: M&S | Bag: Zara | Barbell Bracelet: Shop JJDR | Chunky Ring: Shop JJDR

Ear Jackets

This week I was introduced to the wondrous world of ear jackets by Raquel Leila. I’d never heard the term ear jacket before so I was intrigued to see what they were and how they were worn. The term refers to the way that you ear is surrounded by the earring with a piece at the front and at the back as you can see in the photograph! These are perfect for me as I’m not a massive earring person and have been saying for ages that I want to venture away from the simple stud earrings, small steps people! Raquel Leila is a Canadian based jewellery brand all designed by the beautiful Raquel Leila Waldman, the pieces have a contemporary feel with simple geometric designs that look amazing layered or worn individually! I love these earrings because they’re the perfect balance between the classic stud and a more up to date design! You can buy my ear jackets here, and below I’ve put some of my favourite items from the collection!   Don’t forget to sign up to the newsletter here for $10 off of your first purchase!!

Denim Skirt

I hope you’ve all had a lovely bank holiday! I always think the first bank holiday in May officially kicks off summer so from here on out, I don’t care if its sunshine or raining, I’ll be wearing sandals or skirts or both! Bearing this in mind I thought I would do this post on one of this season’s must haves, the denim skirt. There’s lots of different styles around, I was in the process of deciding which one to purchase when I set eyes on this absolute bargain from the one and only Primark! At £10 it’s easily mistaken with the Topshop and River Island styles! As it’s one of the most popular items of this season, I thought I would do a post on how versatile it is. When a piece of clothing is as versatile as this it’s practically an investment! I’ve put together a few looks including a smart-ish look, a casual look and a night out look! Shirt: H&M | Watch: Asos | Boots: H&M | Skirt: Primark T Shirt: Topshop | Necklace: Asos | Sandals: Topshop | Hat: H&M Old | Skirt: Primark Jacket: Asos | Top: Missguided | Mules: Primark| Skirt : Primark My favourite look has to be with the Missguided crop top, I hadn’t really considered wearing it out in the evening until I did this post. I think it looks really nice against the white crop and I’m sure you’ve already noticed how much I love this jacket! Here’s a list of some of the denim skirts on the high street, mine is from Primark at £10. Topshop – £28.00 | Zara – £29.99 | Miss Selfridge – £25.00 | Asos – £28.00 | Boohoo – £15.00 | River Island – £35.00

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

Leather Biker Jacket

If there’s one thing that every wardrobe needs it’s a leather biker jacket. The holy grail of all things stylish and the perfect spring layer, what’s not to love about it? I’ve had this jacket for years and in my opinion the older the better! The battered look a leather jacket takes on over the years is something money can’t buy. This beauty if from Warehouse, I actually got it in the sale for a mere £100 and couldn’t believe my luck when it arrived all buttery soft and zips galore! The thing about a leather jacket is that you can wear it day or night, summer or winter.. it’s basically your best friend and can make any thing look good, from jeans and a jumper to a little summer dress! I’ve dressed it down here with my H&M checked flannel shirt ( seriously comfortable) layered over yet another of my many grey t shirt’s! I’ve also paired it with my favourite Topshop ripped jeans and my new Next wedges ~ the one’s I won at the Next party! woo hoo! How amazing are they? There’s only one thing better than new shoes ~ free new shoes!!   Sinead x
