Outfit: And it was all (neon) yellow

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

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.

Outfit: Happy Pants


The sun was shining this weekend in Manchester (as in last weekend when these pics were taken – the weather this weekend sucked!), so I put my happy pants on and drank Prosecco… what else is there to do when the sun is shining really?

Who else thinks these pants are super fun? I am so in love with them, even if some people think I look like a pirate (not mentioning any names), but seriously crushing so hard on them! I, along with the rest of the fashion world, have gone completely ruffle mad, it’s a trend that’s really having a “fashion moment” right now and I have fallen for it hook, line and sinker! (Is that a pirate phrase? I don’t actually know… oh the irony!)

Outfit: Denim

So this week, I’m talking more about denim because let’s face it, there is no hiding from it! It’s back in a huge way this spring/summer and I for one have found a renewed love for all things denim.

I recently purchased these distressed light denim jeans from H&M with the very of the moment frayed stepped hem, I love these jeans and although they are really quite similar to my trusty Levi’s (as my boyfriend pointed out) I still had to have them. They tick all the denim trend boxes, keeping us right at the fashion fore-front and let’s face it they go with everything so they’re more of an investment than anything else (pretty much the line I use for every guilt ridden purchase I make – yes, this neon pink visor will go with absolutely everything*).

Outfit: Birthday Suit

So, this week has been a long and treacherous week of birthday celebrations (it’s such a chore to constantly eat, drink and be merry for that amount of time)ย which has resulted in me sitting in bed on a Sunday evening, realising that I haven’t put a blog post out this week and trying to fight the fear of returning to work after spending most of the weekend in a weird drunken, paranoid haze… So 29 is clearlyย going to be the year where I start adulting for reals.

Hangover aside though, I have had a truly wonderful birthday this year and rather than feeling scared at being another year closer to the big 30 I actually feel super happy. I think it’s so easy to concentrate on the things that may be missing from our lives instead of realising the truly amazing things we already have going for us… I’m getting seriously deep here peeps!

Outfit: Cropped Kick Flares


So, ‘Cropped Kick Flares’ – the 3 words that I have dreaded since crushing on this denim style only to try them on and realise that they make me look like a bell(end), no but seriously, the actual shape of a bell… well flattering… ๐Ÿ””

I bought these jeans last summer and even though I absolutely love them, I just haven’t had a clue how to style them, the problem being that although I love the shape of them, unfortunately the shapeย does not love me. The kick flare really throws my proportions off, making my legs look shorter and thighs bigger which of course is not what you want. However, one Sunday morning I had a light bulb moment…

Outfit: Big Sleeves

So, hands up if you’ve ever had the joy of putting fishnet tights on… Fun hey? Like seriously there has got to be a better way *makes note to invent some sort of toe shield* it’s just too difficult, so much so, I refused to take them off when I was trying on clothes later that day (catching yourself in fishnet tights and not much else isn’t the best way to spend a Saturday, I must admit).

Any-who, all for the sake of fashion. Why am I so in love with fishnet tights again though? It’s like one of those trends that you really did think had had its day and then its back again and like cooler than ever… I even wanted to do one of those casual ‘lifting top up’ photo’s to show them peeking out over my waistband but do not fear, I refrained from that one!

Outfit: I’ll have a loaf(er) please

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

So this post is all about my new shoes, I love them!!! You probably recognise them as theย style of last summer and thankfully they are back and in a fab range of colours. I was toying with the idea of getting the bright pink pair but settled on the navy… more exciting than black but way more wearable than hot pink and I thought they would team perfectly with my (also new) polka dot shirt, I love a polka dot and I am also a lover of navy and black… I know for some people it is literally a cardinal sin to team the 2 but I find it so chic!

So, I have been shopping more than usual of late, there are pro’s and con’s to starting a blog…one major con is the need to go shopping ALL the time to keep your posts relative, one major pro is the need to go shopping ALL the time to keep your posts relative!!! ๐Ÿ˜ But in all seriousness my wishlist has grown ten-fold since starting this blog but luckily it’s my birthday next month (and if this is not a hint I don’t know what is!)

Outfit: Dungas and Sneaks

Another day, another way to style a bandana! ๐Ÿ™‚ This one being the bog standard way of just tying it round your neck… Well done me! (To see how I’ve previously styled a bandana click hereย and here.)

So, I finally decided to share my blog on social media this week and we broke the internet… Well we didn’t but the way my boyfriend and I were bouncing around when we hit 600+ views you would have thought we had… A very long way to go yet but baby steps and I am finding it all very exciting and feeling genuinely so chuffed and grateful to each and everyone of you that have actually taken the time to pop over and have a gweld (I mean, gweld doesn’t really translate to ‘look’ in the welsh language but I like the sound of it and you know, I have a welsh GCSE so there).

Outfit: Space-Cowboy

So, I’m pretty sure me calling myself a “lazy dresser” is fast becoming a theme to this blog… The laziest dresser in the blogosphere? Rings a bell right? But anyway, I do live for being warm and cosy, which can really pose a problem for someone who is obsessed with style. My way around this, is a great accessory… I am like the BIGGEST fan of accessorising, it’s ALL about the details!!!ย You’ll probably notice a key accessory is always present in every look I sport… This week, of course, is no exception… Hello space-cowboy boots and fishnet socks!
