Autumn Rust

I’m about to say something controversial here, don’t hate me for saying it but.. I’m so glad it’s nearly Autumn. I know everyone’s supposed to love Summer and don’t get me wrong I love sipping a cocktail whilst lounging round the pool like the next girl, but lets be honest here, it ain’t never gonna happen in England. So we may as well embrace the season that we can depend on for weather, Autumn. Summer fashion can be a bit boring compared to the textures and layers in Autumn, I’m a sucker for a chunky knit and I’m not comfortable admitting how many pairs of boots I own ( they’re all unique in their own special way I promise!). This is kind of a half hearted Autumn look, I guess you could say its perfect for the transitioning, that definitely sounds better! I’ll tell you why its ‘perfect for transitioning’ , I’ve got a jumper with half sleeves, it’s warm but it’s not a full on jumper, and I’ve got open toe boots on, not quite ready to put my toes away for winter just yet! Lets just take a minute to mention these beautiful rings from Nikki Stark Jewellery. I love that they’re made from 9ct Gold and Silver which means they’ll last forever. If like me you’re forever walking round with green fingers then you’ll know what I mean, I never remember to take my jewellery off which means I’m lucky if I get to wear them more than a couple of times before the dreaded green finger sets in. I chose from the Wishbones range which considering they’re made from 9ct Gold and Silver they’re also super reasonably priced ranging between £12 – £35!   Jumper : Gina Tricot | Jeans : Topshop | *Boots : Linzi Shoes | Bag : Zara | *Sunglasses : Plastic Tail I don’t know if you can tell the difference as much as I can but one of my besties has returned from travelling and as she’s a photographer I managed to persuade her to shoot for me. Yay! I’ve also changed the way I edit my Instagram photos for a more sleek look, it was starting to look a bit like a jumble sale. I know not many people probably care but I hate it when my Instagram doesn’t match up! Anyway, I’m rambling! Let me know what you think of my new photographs! Can you tell the difference?? Also, hands up who’s secretly loving dressing for the cold weather?!

Eyebrows on Fleek

This is a new kind of post for me. Don’t get me wrong, I like to look as nice as the next girl but I just don’t have the patience to put in the time. I’m definitely trying though, I’ve been watching make up tutorials and learning about contouring and now, I think I might be ready to go out and buy some adult make up. Yes I’m actually considering spending over £10 on foundation and using something other than my dirty hands to put it on my face. Bearing this in mind, when my super talented friend Nat offered to sort out my eyebrows I jumped at the chance. A professional had never laid a finger on my brows before. Unless you call my Mum a professional? I’ve never even had a manicure or my legs waxed, I’m a true DIYer when it comes to the beauty side of things. I had absolutely no idea what to expect when I was told she’d put me down for ‘HD Brows‘. Little was I to know that I was to be dyed, waxed, threaded and plucked to within an inch of my life. I was honestly surprised to see there was still something left when I took a look in the mirror. Not only had she given me a set of killer brows but she’d also done my make up to show me where I needed to fill in. Can you believe the difference in my before and after? I can’t believe no body told me I’d been walking round like that! Shame on you all! I’m proud to say that i’m now on a ‘brow programme’, just call me Cara. You can see Nat’s beauty page here. Are you a DIYer like me or do you leave it to the professionals? Most importantly, are your eyebrows on fleek? *Sunglasses : Plastic Tail Follow my blog on bloglovin

Holiday Look Book

Whilst I was away I managed to drag myself away from the pool to shoot a little holiday look book. I don’t know about you but I find it impossible to get dressed on holiday, sun burn and humidity means I always end up wearing light weight and floaty pieces. So this year I actually planned out what I was packing rather than randomly selecting things that look nice with no thoughts about actual outfit building, I do that every year and every year I struggle! I know ‘holiday season’ is pretty much over now but hey, we don’t have to go when the kids are off and between me and you I usually avoid that time, not only is it ridiculously priced but who wants to share the pool with noisy children?! I was far too busy to shoot looks in Italy and by the time I got to Sweden I was only interested in eating and shopping so I’m afraid you only got my looks from Rhodes! *Sunglasses : Zero UV | Top : Topshop | Shorts : H&M Old| Shoes : Topshop *Top : Fashion Bazaar | *Shorts : Fashion Bazaar | Shoes : Topshop Vest : Topshop Old| Shorts : Topshop | *Bag : Brown & Berry | *Sandals : Linzi Shoes Playsuit : Ebay | *Bag : Brown & Berry | Sandals : Topshop – now in the sale!! *Dress : Laundry Boutique | *Sliders : Linzi Shoes | *Bag : Brown & Berry Dress : Pampelone | Sandals : Topshop – now in the sale!! As soon as I get back from a holiday I’m desperate to book another one! Where’s your dream destination!?

Autumn Winter Loves

I’m back! Did you miss me? I’m sad to say that all I brought back with me is a dodgy (barely there) tan and the driest hair known to man. I did however have an amazing time so you can all brace yourselves and be prepared for an onslaught of posts about what I wore what I ate and where I went! So seen as I’ve only just had a minute to sit down, slash lay in bed watching netflix, I thought I’d ease myself back in with a nice little shopping post. Apparently no one told the English weather that it’s actually August so we may as well embrace it and use it as an excuse to get a new wardrobe! Call me sad but to be honest I’m so over summer clothes and am actually looking forward to layering up and picking the perfect pair of winter boots. What better way to indulge myself than to pick out my favourite winter pieces? So far at the top of my list are: A good pair of pointed flats because when you have size 8 feet it’s near impossible to not rock the clown chic look with points. A denim dress I’ve got my eye on a few from Boohoo who seem to have seriously upped their game Chloe Dupe I know, I still haven’t got it.. this month I will have one! 1 – Strappy Flats – Zara | 2- Rust Knit – River Island | 3- Open Back Shirt – Asos | 4- Denim Dress – Boohoo | 5- Pointed Flats – Asos | 6- Cream Knit – Asos | 7- Striped Dress – Topshop | 8- Chunky Knit – Asos | 9- Denim Shirt – Asos What are your autumn must haves? Do you love wrapping up like me or are you sad to let summer go!?

OOTD | Holiday Dress

This time tomorrow I’ll be walking down the streets of Sorento eating Gelato without a care in the world! My boyfriend has gained himself some serious brownie points by booking an extra week in Italy before we go on to Greece. How can a girl say no to an offer like that? So this will be my last post for a couple of weeks but follow me on instagram (@sineadcrowe), snapchat (sineadcrowe) and twitter (@sineadxcrowe) to keep up to date with what I’m up to. Please expect lots of pictures of icecream and beaches! I’m going to do some lovely look book posts when I get back but I thought I’d give you a little preview with this beautiful dress from Pampelone. I was sent this a couple of weeks ago and have been dying to show it off, the quality is amazing and it’s the perfect little holiday dress! I love the style and the embroidered detail finishes it off perfectly, what I also love is that unlike other cold shoulder pieces, it doesn’t pop up around your neck which is always an added bonus! *Dress: Pampelone | Sandals : Topshop
