I FOUND THESE DUNGAREES


I'm back in the motherland again, this time to enjoy one of the best weeks of the year; National Week! There's so much going on during this time, so I thought it was only right to make a cheeky visit home again and soak up some rays! This three quarter sleeved stripy top isn't exactly weather appropriate; I was dying of heat the entire day, but I thought it look so cute with my dungarees, which I pulled out from my wardrobe after forgetting they were even there! I'm definitely taking these back to London with me to style with chunky knits for the cooler weather.


It's such a simple outfit, but I thought it looked so cute paired with my strappy sandals and bowler hat, for a really nautical look.



I absolutely love this nail polish! I got it as a freebee in Cosmopolitan magazine, and I've never ever owned or worn a gold nail polish, so it was nice to try something different. It applies really easily and reminded me loads of the gel/shimmery ones from Topshop.

MEN'S JUMPERS > EVERYTHING


I'm such a sucker for comfy knits and jumpers; it's pretty much the best thing about the Autumn and Winter months! I don't know if it's just me, but I always tend to gravitate towards men's jumpers before women's ones! In this case, I decided to give Primark a cheeky browse last weekend, but the women's sections were so unbelievably packed that I could only bear facing the men's, which is where I picked up this little number! Serendipity, I guess! 



I haven't worn my black skinnies and Doc Martens for quite a while, so I embraced the cooler weather to pair them with my new jumper! So simple but I love it!

LONG CARDY KINDA WEATHER


My stripy top and long cardigan from SheInside arrived in the post the other day - yay! They go together so perfectly, so I thought I'd pair them with my white jeans and chunky black heels to go out for a nice meal. Looking through my wardrobe, I realised that I was really lacking in casual tops for the colder weather, and pieces like this long cardigan are so versatile and easy to wear. 


I expected the cardigan to be grey - which it kind of is - but it really has blue undertones! I was definitely pleasantly surprised, though, because I think that it makes an outfit slightly more interesting, as opposed to the standard grey I would have usually gone for! 


Also, I finally had an opportunity to wear the gorgeous necklace my boyfriend got me for Christmas, which I usually have a hard time pairing with outfits! It's so pretty!

Autumn's coming..


Hey guys! Just a quick outfit post; mainly to complain about the weather we've been having in London recently! It's now almost always overcast, rainy, and quite chilly - basically, it's unacceptable weather for August :( The only upside is that I really enjoy dressing for slightly cooler Autumn weather - it allows so many opportunities for layering & cool blazers or chunky knits! This kimono is perfect for this kind of weather, and looks awesome thrown over a simple, monochrome outfit! 


I'm also becoming more accustomed to wearing my white skinnies! They go with pretty much everything, but yet make for a more interesting look than the standard black skinny jeans I used to live in! Next, I'd like to get myself a slightly more dishevelled and ripped up pair! 


I got myself this new fringed leather bag while perusing the streets of London the other day with my friend. To be fair, it was less a matter of indulgence and more that I was actually in need of a cute bag in a colour other than black! I thought this was one was perfect to pair with loads of different outfits, as well as it being a great size, and also, I really can't pass up a bit of fringe!

Clearly, Autumn is on its way! But I'm kinda excited about it! :D

ASOS Wishlist

ASOS Wishlist




Here are a few things that have been sitting in my ASOS 'Saved Items' for yonks! I have no funds right now, but I'm kinda hoping that leaving them in there will make them drop in price, which will also make the prospect of my size remaining available an unlikely event! There's nothing wrong with wishful thinking, though, right?

The grey cocoon coat is so dreamyyyyy! It fits so nicely (on the model, at least) and it looks like it would be a super versatile item that I could wear with pretty much anything! I think that's probably at the very top of my wishlist! 

After purchasing my Levi's mom jeans that I've featured in a couple of posts, I really want them in all colours and styles now! These black ones look really comfortable but also quite feminine! 

The blazer - another versatile item - is super gorge and chic - quite a departure from my usual style, which is kinda why I want it.

As for the shoes, I really have no excuse for those, especially since I JUST got a pair of strappy lace-up heels for my birthday! But what can I say? I'm a shoe-holic!

Body Chain


I got my hands on one of my long-lusting body chains some time ago, and I had never really found an opportunity to incorporate it into an outfit until now! I think it looks so cute and subtle worn underneath a crop top or bralet, paired with these high-waisted shorts, and the kimono only adds to the general understated vibe of the look.



This bralet is faux leather and, again, another incredible bargain from SheInside! It fits really well and it's actually incredibly comfortable and supportive!






This has to be one of my favourite nail polishes ever! It's by O.P.I. and is called 'PEACE & LOVE & OPI'. It's sort of like a gel consistency, so it's incredibly easy to apply, and also gives off a multi-toned effect - sometimes it's purple and sometimes it's green, which I love!
