Monochrome babe

Oi Oi,

Yaaaaasss it is finally British Summer Time people. Hope you actually remembered to move your clocks forward.

I know this sunshine, means exams (which breaks my heart) but it also means that as much as I love my coats, we can work with lighter ones.

I’m not quite going to pack the coats and jackets away yet, but I am trying to embrace the sunshine while it lasts.

Layering is a girls best friend

so this long, exaggerated sleeve shirt with this simple black cami (maxi?) dress was the way to go here.

Bring on that good spring weather! (because we know we’re not seeing summer until August…)

Cudos x

Choker – Primark – £3 – bargain!

Shirt dress – Missguided – £25 –  sooooo soft!

Cami Dress – H&M (midi alternative –  ASOS – £22) – although if you are in store have a hunt for it, it is great for girls with curves because it actually fits, its got some stretch to it, but it’s not jersey. Like a light scuba material I think…

Bag – Zara -(alternative for the purpose of colour – Zara – £29.99) – You can totally get away with any bright bag; but there is definitely something about yellow this season 😉

Socks – Missguided – £3 

Trainers – Asos – £20 (quite a few alternatives so just search for white trainers on the website)

PS: don’t forget to check all my other posts too 😉


Cropped Denim

It had been months since I had done some in-store shopping, and maybe I was not looking in the right places, but nothing online appealed to me at all. It was all dead Christmas stock, with one or two introductory new line pieces. I was tired of looking at the same jumpers and knitwear from last season, I was looking for something fresh and revitalising.

On my trip back from the gym, being the only time I head into town, I quickly popped into Zara. It was only meant to be a 5 minute scan of the new lines, 5 minutes very quickly turned into 40 minutes.

I spotted this cropped Zara Denim Jacket and immediately remembered a denim jacket a vlogger mentioned on Youtube. I checked the price tag – £29.99 – shocking I know- and immediately took an M and L to the changing room, along with some other pieces. I was already sold on the jacket, just wanted to get the right size. I went for the more oversized L, as I wasn’t looking for a fitted look and the rest is history.

The sun was shining one day and of course I leapt for it. It’s a bit chilly to be worn on it’s own at the moment, but it’s a nice indoor piece when in the library or in lectures, until summer comes on by.

It’s perfect because it can be worn super-casually, or dressy-casually. Collect it before the price goes up!
