In The Style UK // Styling a Shirt Dress

I feel like there’s so many different online shops that have popped up over the past few years, it’s hard to know which ones are good and which one’s to avoid. I’m not a huge one for online shopping – usually I only shop online if I know the shop from the high street, but I’ve been trying to reform my shopping habits! In The Style UK is one I’ve definitely made an allowance for, I’ve tried and tested it and can honestly say it’s safe guys! What’s more is that I have a 10% discount code for you beautiful people! Just enter the code SIN10 at the checkout! *Jacket : Shop Fashion Bazaar // *Dress : InTheStyle UK  (use code SIN10 for 10% off sitewide)// Boots : Next Sold Out  // Chocker : DIY – See how I did it here! // Bag : YesStyle I Love this dress from In The Style UK, my sister had a shirt dress that I used to borrow a lot so I figured it was time to get my own. This one’s got a super casual edge because of the drop hem which I feel makes it look a bit more casual for day wear! I paired it with these snake boots and my DIY choker, these boots are my favourite for wearing with skirts because they come up slightly higher which I find oh so flattering! I managed to nab my sisters Chloe dupe on my way out the door which I was pretty happy about, she is actually a hoarder and ordered it in all three colours available. Now I don’t know how I feel about dupes to buy one myself but I’m more than happy to borrow hers and you can’t exactly buy a Chloe bag in every colour available now can you!? I finished the look off with my favourite white jacket from Shop Fashion Bazaar, would you have believed that I actually didn’t know if I’d wear it much when I first got it and now it just seems to pop up in every outfit that I do!! Please excuse my awful liquid eyeliner in the above photo, it’s my Achilles heel! I just cannot do it, I envy the girls with ‘eyeliner on fleek’ with the hopes that one day I may be able to master the effortless flick! If you have any posts on it, tips, tricks or youtube tutorials I will be forever in your debt if you could leave me a comment below!! Shop the Post All photos taken by Kirk Schwarz.

Chunky Knits : 20 under £20

If there’s one thing I love more than jeans it’s a chunky knit, or any knitwear to be honest, but chunky knits have a special place in my heart. So in the name of research (well thats laughable!) i’ve compiled a fun list of 20 chunky knits under £20 –  can you say no to that price? I guess you can try! The Chunky Knits I’ve tried to be clever and make it so that you can click on the image and it’ll go straight to the webpage but clearly I’m not that clued up because it doesn’t work on them all so I’ve also listed them below! Beware, high levels of white, cream, beige and grey! This was honestly so much harder than I thought but I did it! I would honestly wear every single one of these as well! Let me know if you’d like me to do another post like this on something else! Another item of clothing? no 100 under £100’s though PLEASE!!

ELCY Intimates // Valentines day edit

So if there’s one thing that is an absolute must for valentines day its sexy underwear. I know that there’s a lot of different brands out there doing this kind of thing but ELCY Intimates is by far my favourite. It is my sister’s brand so you’re probably thinking I’m biased but actually I see how much care and attention goes into each bra which is hand made for each and every order! Esme Bralette : Elcy Clothing // Lip Balm : Chanel // Perfume : Jo Malone  ELCY Intimates // Valentines Day Essentials Lingerie Of course Lingerie is quite possibly the most important thing you need for Valentines Day, it is the holiday of Love after all! What if you’re single? Well, I don’t know about you but for me confidence starts with the first layer you put on, your underwear! If you’re wearing a set of sexy matching underwear it fills you with confidence and makes you feel like you can achieve anything! ELCY Intimates do an amazing range of handmade pieces that are truly sexy. I know there are a lot of sites out there now that do this kind of thing but these pieces are not only hand made to order but they’re more grown up than some of the other brands I’ve seen which are aimed at 17 year old ‘instagram’ girls. You can get 10% off any style using the code ‘lovestylemindfulness’. Jewellery Jewellery and sexy underwear go hand in hand, Look at Rose and Jack on the Titanic! Ok I know she wasn’t wearing a bra but I bet if ELCY Intimates and the like had been around then she sure would have been! It just screams glamour which happens to lead me on to my next point. . lips! Lips Lipstick. Red to be precise, Valentines Day always calls for red lipstick! I usually go for a more pinky red as I’m blonde I sometimes feel like red lipstick can be really harsh on me! I never actually used to wear lipstick until about a year ago, and as my collection grows so does my bravery. Just give me another year and I’ll be rocking the bright reds with the best of them! I’m loving this one at the moment which my sister got me for christmas from the Ciate X Olivia Palermo collection, it’s perfect for everyday wear! Scent I have to admit that I actually stole this bottle from Sue Crowe (thanks Mum), it looks good and I want it so that pretty much counts anyway doesn’t it? I always think that you can fall in love with a scent, there’s certain smells that get me feeling in some kind of way and god help a man who’s wearing the same scent as my boyfriend when I haven’t seen him in 2 weeks. I’ll be following the poor guy round the whole of Waitrose in the perfume trail! Alexa Bralette : Elcy Clothing // *Watch : Urban Watch // Lipstick : Olivia Palermo…

Guerlain Review // House of Fraser

When House of Fraser emailed me asking if I’d like to try out some Guerlain products it was pretty much a no brainer. Now I have to admit that I’ve never used any of their products before, but the one thing I did know about Guerlain is that the packaging was impeccable. Beautiful products that ought to be on display at all times! Guerlain // La Petite Robe Noire This range in particular is exciting because it’s actually exclusive to House of Fraser for a month, which makes me feel pretty darn special. Yes, you heard it first, one of the elite members trying out these products first. . along with the rest of the lucky folks who shop at House of Fraser. . . but we needn’t mention that bit now had we?! The pigmentation is really light and shimmery, almost more like a tinted balm. I’m not being funny but who cares what it looks like when it tastes as good as it does?! The taste, I mean smell . . kind of reminds me of the Lancome juicy tubes that everyone had at school. Yeah they tasted good but honestly who wants their hair permanently stuck to their lips? I love the lighter pink colour because it’s not too bright and it feels really moisturising, not to mention the fact that it tastes incredible. These would be great for a ‘no make up’ make up look because they give the most subtle hint of colour. I’m all about the understated look! Lipstick Pink // Lipstick Purple // Perfume Can we just take a moment of appreciation for the packaging? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if there’s one thing Guerlain know it’s packaging! This tiny but perfectly formed perfume sample is a drop from heaven. If I’m completely honest I didn’t even know that Guerlain did perfume before but I’m definitely adding this to my list of things I want for my birthday. So what if my birthdays in May? I guess for now I can carry this one in my handbag so I always smell incredible! Don’t forget to follow me on Bloglovin as I’m hoping to do more beauty posts!

New Love // Casual Trousers

I’m a jeans girl through to the bone, but recently I’ve been eyeing up casual trousers, something I never thought I would. Peg leg, flared, culottes, you name it I’ve got my eye on it. I love how smart they look and feel like it’s something I could really go for. My main problem is my height, whenever I’ve looked for a pair of trousers before I find that they cut off at the wrong place making me look ridiculously lanky!! I’m restarting my search and this time I’m a woman on a mission, I’ve actually ordered a pair of culottes, shock horror! I promise myself that I won’t give up until I find a pair this time! Hold me to it!! Those casual trousers will soon be in my possession! Here’s some looks I found on Pinterest and am absolutely loving! Shop The Look // Casual Trousers So in my quest for the perfect pair of casual trousers, I’ve found a few too many than my bank balance can handle. So I thought I would share the love, and the damage! Let me know what your thoughts are on this look! Do you have a favourite pair/style?! I would love any recommendations on where to go or a particular style you’re loving! Don’t forget to follow me on Bloglovin’ so you never miss a post.
