This weekend, I finally got time to try out my rather sassy yellow sunglasses, that I have wanted to purchase for some time… It just so happens that Primark are selling them (also pink and blue ones) for just a measly £1 so of course I bought them… they do not keep the sun at bay one iota (is that how you spell it? It’s just occurred to me that I’ve said it many a time but never actually written the word) but it’s all in the name of fashion.
I call this outfit ‘Hope for the best, prepare for the worst’ as it’s just a combo of hoping for summer (see bottom half) but preparing for winter (see top half) and it just seemed rather fitting. It is extremely hard to dress for the great British summer, you never know quite what to expect, so clearly, I try to dress for all possible outcomes… big thick winter coat with summer shoes, hello!
Quite a different post today, just something I wanted to introduce into my blog as I initially set out to talk about the everyday life of the twenty-something woman and really all I’ve done is talk about clothes… and although that is a BIG part, there’s a lot more to us, right?
So, life as a (late) twenty-something woman. Not really the easiest time, I’ve heard that once you hit 30 you are overcome with this sense of being and empowerment… at 29 I mostly feel anxious and sleepy, so if that’s the case then bring on the big 30!!!
Quelle surprise, after a day off I resorted back to my safe colour in a head to toe black outfit… If in doubt wear black I say, the easiest way to look chic and being in Paris, I didn’t want to take any risks!
So, this is the 2nd outfit from my 3 Paris looks and once again it’s all about the sleeve. This will be my 4th ‘statement sleeves’ post and I’ve got to say, they’re only getting bigger… (Check out my other posts here, here and here.)
So, I got back from gay Paris on Monday and it already feels like a distant memory. Going back to work and being slapped in the face by the great British summer can really be a Buzz Killington. But none the less, my trip was a joy and a great opportunity to take some pics away from Manchester. I know I’ve been a bit lax with my posts of late so I’m really feeling a lot more inspired after a little break in a gloriously beautiful city and hopefully this will get me motivated to start posting on time again… Typical Laura to procrastinate.
So this is the blog post from last week that didn’t get posted as I was away in London, then with everything that happened in Manchester it just didn’t seem right to post it, so I’m posting it now.
So, I have yet to find anything yellow to add to my Spring/Summer wardrobe so I have compensated for this by posing in front of a very yellow door (shutter?)… how bou dah?
You may remember my post from a couple of weeks ago where I talked about the Spring/Summer trends I am championing this year (read it here if not), the midi skirt was one of them and I’ve finally got round to styling this one, even though it has been lurking in my wardrobe for months now.
Today I am writing a post with a difference, I am writing about one of my favourite cities in the whole entire world… Paris, the city of love.
As my last post was quite word heavy, I have decided on a more picture heavy post this week because lets face it, who doesn’t want to see pictures of Paris, it is like the most prettiest.
You may remember (me from such…) my post from a few weeks ago where I spoke about Spring/Summer trends that I am championing this year (check it out here if you haven’t already), in this I mentioned the colour pink (hello new pretty bow shoes) and statement sleeves. I have to say statement sleeves have been a real favourite of mine as you probably gathered from some of my previous posts (see here and here). So far it has mainly been the bell sleeve but that all changed when I clapped eyes on this little beaut of a jumper… enter the balloon sleeve, welcome to the family little one.
I am in love with this jumper, it’s so cool yet effortless and I love it even more as it is a waaayyy cheaper version of this Topshop one at just £8 from (you guessed it) Primark – you literally can’t afford to not get it at that price.
