Zara Poplin Dress

Outfits

Good afternoon everyone and happy April 🙂

Like most people in Lockdown I have bought many items of clothing that I have not had the opportunity to wear out yet! From summer dresses to winter coats, my wardrobe is full of lovely things I’m just aching to wear somewhere fun.

I recently bought a couple of white summer dresses from Zara. One was a long flowing midi dress with patterned sleeves and the other is the mini poplin dress featured in this post ~

Can be a bit see-though so I recommend appropriate underwear x

I was thinking of styling them both for this blog post but the long one is so beautiful that I want pictures of it in a beautiful place, ya know? Sooo just the poplin dress is what where talking about today!

Anyways ~ this poplin dress was recommended to me in a size M, which I thought was strange as I’m normally a size XS/S in Zara, but when it arrived I could see why. Despite the dress being loose and flowing, the neck line is quite tight to pull over your head as the buttons on the front are only for show! So it would have been hard to get a small over my head and shoulders!

So… a medium was indeed purchased and I LOVE it ❤ . It’s very very white (not cream) and it’s super light and airy. I can picture wearing it somewhere nice like the French Riviera or Tuscany (we can only dream!).

You can’t see in the pictures but I like to style with black heeled ankle boots, little black sandals or big chunky biker boots 🥾 ~

As for accessories, I like to wear my sliver choker necklace from ASOS, cute silver hoops, bracelet from Swarovski and heart pendant necklace from Tiffany and Co.

Also, I’ve said this before but I’m sorry so many posts are in my house at the moment. Lockdown is slowly easing and with the weather getting warmer…more exciting photo opportunities should start appearing 🙂

As always, I’ll link the dress below ~

90’s Leather Mum Jacket

Outfits

HELLOOO and good afternoon to you all ❤

What do you guys think of my new jacket? It’s faux leather!

Got this lovely jacket from ASOS Design and I’m crazy about it ~ It ties at the waist and even has slight shoulder padding!

I’ve been LOVING the 90’s grunge style recently just because of how genuinely ‘cool’ I think it makes people look…

Bought in a UK size 8 🙂

I made sure to get faux leather as I have a plant based lifestyle and therefore always try to avoid buying animal products if I can help it (sometimes that’s hard but I try!).

I should say that this jacket is very oversized when it’s not tied but the belt pulls in the waist so nicely that it doesn’t matter that much – as I usually prefer more fitted clothing ~

Can’t wait to wear this out in the spring when Lockdown ends in the UK. It will honestly go with SO much.

I’ve already had a few people on Instagram message me about it, so as always I will link it down below xox

*Also I’m sorry that a lot of my photos are inside my house atm, but I’m not allowed to go outside to take photos because of the national lockdown restrictions where I live. I’m hoping that will change soon so I can give you better photos in more professional and interesting backdrops!*

I’m Finally on Trend?

Outfits

Hey… you’re cute jeans.

Button detail is beautiful!

What’s up everyone? I’ve recently purchased a new pair of straight jeans from ASOS and it’s ABOUT TIME.

Check me out with a ponytail

I’ve only ever had skinny jeans my entire life and I’ve noticed recently that they are currently going out of fashion! Kinda a problem isn’t it when all you own is one type of jeans 😦

Lipstick is from Pat McGrath ❤

I decided to finally get myself a pair of straight high-waisted jeans from ‘I Saw It First’ through ASOS. I’m officially part of the non-skinny jeans club now lol.

I forgot to move my stuff in the background…I’m sorry!

I got a light blue colour with a double button. I like the button detail as it makes your waist look slimmer and makes the jeans more flattering over all ~

Love the look of these jeans with stiletto heels x

I think I will style them with black heels/ boots and a bodysuit ~ but in all honestly they are the type of clothing item that will go with anything!

Earrings from Topshop 🙂
I got these jeans in a size 10 btw – I’m sometimes an 8 and sometimes a 10 depending on the shop… but I thought these jeans would look great a bit looser around the waist so I sized up to be sure 🙂

Hope you are all having a great day and and I will post more pics soon xox

Keeping Warm this Winter

Outfits

Hello and a good afternoon to you!

For Christmas this year I decided to invest in a proper winter coat. I owned many coats and jackets but I did not own one that was suitable for really cold weather… which is problematic when you live in a place with cold, damp winters.

One of my favourite features is this stunningly fluffy faux fur hood – look how big it is!!!

I ended up choosing this beautiful white puffer coat from Zara. A size small (S) fits me great and it’s ever so warm :).

It’s fleece lined making it soft and cozy, but most importantly, it’s NOT made with down.

So many winter puffers are made with duck feathers and I wanted to find something gorgeous and suitable for the bitter cold that was also cruelty free!

I was definitely successful. This coat is suitable in temperatures -5C to -20C so perfect for winter breaks away (skiing!) or cold bonfire nights.

The pockets are lined and there are even straps in the back to stop the coat from falling off you as it’s quite heavy.

I love styling it with a turtle neck, some jeans, ankle boots/ snow boots, and a little black cross body bag.

Thanks for reading and thank you to all the people who have followed my blog recently ❤

An Oversized Cardigan for All Year Round

Outfits

Good morning everyone, I hope you are having a great week and keeping healthy if you are in Lockdown!

I want to write a post about this White cardigan I recently purchased from Missguided (as I pretty much live in it haha!).

I think like a lot of people during COVID I’ve bought ALOT of lounge wear, wayyy more than I usually would, this year because we can’t go anywhere but our living rooms…

This cardigan is perfect for lounging around the house. It’s oversized, ties at the waist, is soft and wearable. I LOVEEE it!

I like to style it with black leggings or cycle shorts with fluffy slippers and a t-shirt <3. The sleeves are extra large also, giving you that feeling like your are slightly wrapped in a blanket haha.

Hope you all are well xx
