Style Heroes With Dorothy Perkins

Style heroes are kinda my thing, I guess I see style heroes as another way of describing wardrobe essentials, the backbone of my style. So when Dorothy Perkins got in touch about participating in a styling competition based around this seasons style heroes how oh how could I ever resist?! So basically, enjoy the post, see how I styled up my denim shirt dress – 100% one of my spring style heroes and most importantly of all, keep an eye out on Dorothy Perkins Instagram and make sure you vote for me! Spring Style Heroes For me, spring is all about layering, I probably have said that in a post at some point or other with each season inserted. Layering is great at any point but no time more than Spring. It’s getting warm enough to brave cold legs – if you’re as brave as me that is – and some layering can make you look Spring ready without catching your death. I was dreading shooting this look when I woke up to frost . .frost. . on the floor, but this blanket scarf not only finishes this look off perfectly, but it’s also pretty damn warm. Hand’s up who forgot how effortlessly chic and warm a blanket scarf can be?! Loving the tie detail on this dress, I didn’t know if it was too girly for me but I actually really like it and think it breaks the dress up. I have to admit I also thought that the scarf over a dress may have made me look a wee bit naked underneath but I like it, this outfit will be recycled I can promise you that! The colours on the wrap compliment the denim dress really nicely! I’m not sure if this bag and shoe combo go completely but I loved how the bag brightened up the outfit and added the finishing touch, the shoe colour may have been a bad choice as they do tend to blend into my skin. I’m picturing them with a tan and it’s looking good, I guess I’ll be starting the holiday skin sooner than I thought! p.s – I also love it when you can officially wear sunglasses as a fashion accessory again, on your head, on your neckline, they just finish the outfit off better than any necklace and give you a certain just threw this on look. *Dress : Dorothy Perkins *Wrap : Dorothy Perkins *Shoes : Dorothy Perkins *Sunglasses : Dorothy Perkins *Bag : Mango One last reminder to keep an eye out for the competition on Dorothy Perkins Instagram account and show your support!!

I’ve noticed since I started to share some of my blogging tips that these posts get a great response from you guys. So I’ve decided this week to do a round up of all the posts I’ve done so far for you to keep as a reference, a bloggers survival guide if you will.

These plugins will make your blogging life easier whilst boosting your SEO and most important of all, keeping the reader interested! 5 WordPress Plugins All Bloggers Need How To Lower Your Bounce Rate In 5 Simple Steps Ah, the pesky bounce rate. I managed to ace mine purely by fluke, I don’t know if it’s just that I have well and truly found my niche – of course that helps. But I do know that I have made some changes based on what I had read about getting followers not improving your bounce rate. Though looking back, I suppose the two go hand in hand. With these small steps my bounce rate has fallen from around 60% to less than 1% . . honestly sometimes I think theres a technical glitch for it to be so low but I can see in real time on Google Analytics that people stay on my blog for a while, the key is to keep them interested!

All Black Outfits, Why They Will Always Be A Womans …

It may come as a surprise to you, as someone who usually goes for lighter neutrals, that actually, all black outfits are my best friends. To me, it’s like the day time equivalent of a little black dress. If you don’t know what to wear, all black outfits will never fail you. Although I really love each of the pieces I am wearing individually, I think that even if you didn’t, when put together, black and black compliment each other perfectly. Why All Black Outfits Win Every Time I feel like theres something impossibly chic about an all black outfit paired with some sunglasses. You instantly look like someone important, it adds a certain degree of mystery and oh la la. French women swear by black, and we all know how chic a french woman is, need I explain myself any more? An all black outfit is done best when you play with texture, here I’ve gone for an all denim outfit with my leather jacket worn over my shoulders, because what screams style more than not putting your arms through the sleeves? Sure I’m freezing but does that really matter when you look good? I say no. Double Denim Black on Black I got this t shirt in the sale from Zara a few weeks back, actually the day I got my hair cut! So I couldn’t find it to link for you guys but I did find an almost identical one here from Mango, only difference is it’s not black. . which kind of defeats the object of this post. BUT, it will still look great for a double denim look and who doesn’t love a denim t shirt in any colour, am I right or am I right? These jeans are another pair from Asos, I am loving their denim at the moment and these ones fit like a dream, I went a size up because they’re Mom jeans and I wanted them to look a bit looser, the 8 were pretty damn snug. I’m a real fan of the washed out black colour, I’m actually going to lunch with Asos for International Womens Day tomorrow, or today when you read this! And am thinking of wearing this exact outfit!! I don’t think that I will ever tire of the heel on these boots, it’s so pretty, and I know not everyone is a fan of boots in the summer but I think it’s a great way of toughening up a pretty dress! I really love the length of these too, I know I’ve probably said this a bazillion times but they cut off at just the right point on the ankle! Jacket : Warehouse (Similar here) Top : Zara (Similar here and here) Jeans : Asos *Boots : Public Desire *Sunglasses : Plastic Tail (Similar here) Make sure you follow me on Bloglovin if you aren’t already! I’ll be posting 3/4 times a week now so make sure you follow so that you never miss a post, it’s also great as you can…
