Style | Trying the Trends

Thursday, 8 June 2017 | 2 comments


I'm not really one for trends, I'm usually just a wear what I like kind of girl. However, some of the recent spring trends have caught my eye - pinks, red, gingham and ruffles especially.

I spotted this jumper on the sale rail at Sainsburys. I wasn't sure about it at first so I put it back. While I looked around at other stuff I kept thinking about it so I went back, picked it up and threw it in my trolley. No trying on, no looking in the mirror, I just had a good feeling about it and, at only £6, if it didn't work out I wouldn't be too upset!

I can't even describe how happy I am about how this outfit came together. I must admit I did have a slight panic when I first tried it on at home. I wasn't sure about the placement of the ruffles on the arms but, once I put my shoes on, some lipstick on and grabbed my bag, I felt so much better about it. It's not something that I would normally wear but I'm definitely going to try stepping out of my comfort zone more often now!

Style | Stuck in a rut

Monday, 22 May 2017 | 1 comment


I've definitely been stuck in a bit of a style rut with my work outfits recently. I keep reaching for the same things and I'm getting a little bit bored to be completely honest. It sounds kind of weird but I find that if I feel good in my outfit it makes me feel a bit better about the day ahead.

I purchased this dress from ASOS months ago. I liked the colour, the style and it was on sale but it was too cold to wear it at the time. I popped it in the back of my wardrobe and then completely forgot about it. Last weekend I having a good old root through my wardrobe, trying to gain some inspiration for work outfits, when I found this dress. It is quite casual but I think the addition of a belt and my favourite shoes made it a little bit smarter for work.
