Gladiator Sandals

Gladiators, you love em or hate em? I personally love them, my sisters boyfriend however thinks they belong on extras for roman films and that’s where they should stay! Love em or hate em they’re the sandal of the summer. With a range of different variations whether you want to go all out with a pair of knee highs or dip your toe into the gladiator pool with an ankle pair ( like me) there’s something for all you gladiator lovers out there! To give you (and me) some inspiration on how to wear the trend I’ve put together some of my favourite pinterest photographs. I love the knee high gladiators and they go so well with the suede dress! I’ve done a little shopping list of my favourite gladiators, I’ve got the tan Topshop ones! I love the Zara pastel green sandals, I can see how soft they are without even touching them and I think the pastel colour softens the style a bit!   Topshop Tan FIG Sandals : £39.00 | Next Black Lace up Sandals: £24.00 | Zara Beige Knee High Sandals : £99.99 | Mango Black Lace up Sandals: £19.99 | Zara Pastel Green Sandals: £49.99

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. 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!!

NEW IN MY WARDROBE

White Inspiration

  I don’t know if you’ve noticed but white is EVERYWHERE at the minute! I know its a timeless colour that goes with anything and there’s always some variation of a white trend in stores each summer, but this year I feel like there’s even more than usual! To help you ( and me) to see how white can be worn, I’ve put together some of my favourite images courtesy of pinterest! I’ve also made a little white wish list! I personally LOVE the image above of the oversized white dress and knee high gladiators. I’m all about oversized clothes and I think that tan and white sit together like two peas in a pod!   When I think of white in the summer, I think of beachy hair and light flowing fabric ( see picture on right), but ( see picture on left) white works so well with structure, making the most beautifully tailored pieces.         1- Ear Jackets – Raquel Leila | 2- White Jeans – Topshop | 3- White Dress – H&M | 4- Lace Bra – Elcy Clothing | 5- White Smock Top – H&M | 6 – Snake Lace up Pumps – Topshop | 7 – Leather Messenger Bag – Zara | 8 – Bracelet – Raquel Leila

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
