Feathers, Floaty & Fringed...













Top - H&M
Necklace - Topshop
Jeans - Topshop
Bag - Oasis (past season) similar here 
Jacket - Topshop (past season) similar here from Missguided
Shoes - Kurt Geiger (past season)

I've already featured this top in a previous post,  but I literally love it that much I thought I'd feature it again. This time I've switched my accessories, and gone for a statement feather necklace, and tassel leather jacket.

This leather jacket is without a doubt one of the best things I've ever bought. I got it about 4/5 years ago from Topshop, and still love it as much as I did the day I excitedly came home with it! I know it will be in my wardrobe forever...! 

Fringing never seems to date, and its no secret that I'm partial to abit of tasselling! 

The leather Oasis bag I've paired with this outfit was an absolute bargain and one of the last things I bought at work before I left. (Retail definitely has its perks when you find hidden gems in the stock room that have accidentally been missed in sale markdowns!) 

I have this bag already in a limey/yellow colour which I featured on one of my older posts, but would probably quite happily own it in every colour as I love it! The chain clips on and off so you have the option to wear it as a clutch, and they are surprisingly roomy. The leather is soft and good quality, I definitely recommend this bag to have as a staple wardrobe piece.

Bejewelled...

It's no secret that Jewellery is my absolute addiction in life. I have tonnes of it, and will always continue to buy more! I wear it everyday, and don't feel complete without it. For me it definitely adds the finishing touches to an outfit. 

I've taken some pictures of some of my latest summer jewellery pieces, (which I now have more to add as my lovely work friends bought me more gorgeous pieces for my leaving present!) 

Although the majority of this post are from Topshop, I am constantly on the hunt for new, interesting and unusual jewellery designers, however it just so happens that this season Toppers have been on form with there Freedom collections! 



I'm not a very big silver jewellery wearer, as I tend to wear gold ALOT.
However this summer I thought I'd try and branch out and buy some more silvery pieces and I'm so glad I did! I have a love of coins adorning necklaces, however when I saw these beautiful earrings from Topshop I knew my ears needed them. And the bracelet set was bought from H&M for under a fiver! I love ethnic, moroccan style jewellery, and think these two pair well together.



I have already featured this Miss Selfridge necklace in a previous post, but thought I'd show it again as I love it! The dreamy blue precious stone set against the silver and wooden beads makes it the perfect summery necklace.



As soon as I saw this Topshop necklace I had to have it! I have a thing with feathery accessories, mainly hair pieces (although I do own quite a few feathery necklaces) and when I saw this one I knew it would be the perfect addition to my jewellery collection. I love how striking it is, and how you have the option to wear other accessories with it that feature either gold, silver or both, due to it having the mixed metal contrast.
Gone are the days where it was practically a rule not to mix gold and silver together, these days majority of the jewellery in shops mixes both, and I love that! 



This beaded Topshop number is unlike any other necklaces I own. I aren't really a bead person, I usually go for gold and statement, so for me this necklace is a complete 'step out of the box.' However there was something that really appealed to me when I bought it a few months ago, I think it was the tribal feel it is has to it and the rich orange colour. This adds the right contrast to a plain white tee making it look interesting and colourful.



I have sooo many different headpieces, but have none like this one. I like the innovative way it is an actual headband rather then elasticated, so in stays in place and doesn't bunch up all of your hair at the back like an elastic one does!
The decorative ethnic jewels are lovely for summer, and when I'm wearing this it just makes me want to go to a garden party or festival! It has that summery hippy vibe to it. This is from Topshop see one similar in the link.


This bracelet has been featured in a couple of my previous outfit posts, I got it when I last went to London from the V&A Museum. But because I found it in an unexpected place I love it even more.
A lot of people have asked me where it is from, and are always surprised when I say a museum. Much of the jewellery they sell in there gift shop is quite traditional and handmade, so I was thrilled when I found this unusual little gem.
The ring is another recent Topshop number... I have tonnes of gold rings, but always feel the need to add more! (and the two rings in the background are also Topshop, but are a few months old now.)



This cuff bracelet is one of my lovely Christmas presents from last year, however I don't think I've ever featured it in a post, so thought I'd take some snaps of it. I love the marbled stone set against the shiny gold, its just my kind of perfect bracelet! I also appreciate how nicely presented Whistles jewellery comes, the little pouch makes it feel more exclusive.



I spotted this cuff bangle in H&M a couple of weeks ago, and for the mere price of £3.99 I snapped it up! I think it looks no less expensive then my two Whistles cuffs, (as featured below) and has fitted into my ever expanding collection perfectly. (Earrings are Topshop, and now in the sale.)


Conclusion... I LOVE JEWELLERY.

Snake Print Summer...









Dress - Warehouse (past season)
Jumper - Topshop 
Floppy Hat - Topshop
Belt - Topshop 
Sandals - Topshop (past season)
Jewellery - Mixture of H&M, Marc Jacobs, 
Mawi & Topshop

I bought this dress last year from Warehouse in there summer sale for an absolute bargain price of around £15! I'm a sucker for an animal print, and snake is one of my favourites! 

It is a couple of sizes too big, and it would have fit my waist better and been more flattering had it have been the right size, but with the bottom being so floaty and loose anyway, I think its easier to get away with. (even though on some of these photos it perhaps doesn't look very flattering, I do feel quite nice in it in real life...!) 

And plus, when I am desperate to own something the size usually doesn't bother me as I will make sure I can wear it some way or another, and this snake print number is no exception! 

This outfit isn't very current (as in the stock isn't in the shops at the minute) but I know its an outfit I will dig out every summer. I've even worn this dress in winter with some chunky French Connection boots and a leather biker jacket. 

Layering is one of my favourite things to do, as I'm more often then not cold! So this Spring coloured Topshop jumper was just the right thing to pop on top for a little extra warmth. (It is now in the sale as well... and I totally recommend it as I've worn to absolute death!)

One Sunny Sunday...







Top - H&M
Jeans - Topshop
Shoes - Kurt Geiger 
Bag - Warehouse (past season) 
Rings & Bracelet - &Other Stories, Marc Jacobs, 
V&A Museum and Topshop

As soon as I saw this beautiful top I knew I had to get it! It's everything I've been looking for in summer top! - Bohemian, floaty, white, lace inserts and bell sleeved...

I have seen many styles like this on the high street, but this H&M one is definitely my favourite. I often find H&M hit and miss, I'll either go in and find LOADS that I want, or will barely see anything at all, however I must say this season they are definitely on form! 

I bought this top a few weeks ago, (it also comes in mustard which I'm tempted to buy as well...) and have since had another little spree in H&M and bought a lovely 70's folky playsuit and new jewellery, so will do a post on those this week.

This day was particularly hot, so I was so pleased I could finally get my FAVOURITE Kurt Guiger shoes out again! I lusted after these shoes aaaaallll last summer, and finally decided to splurge out on them for them to go in the sale literally days later! Typical! But they are without a doubt one of my favourite pairs of shoes I've ever bought, so they were definitely worth the price tag! I did ask my photographer... (Ian!) if he would take a side view of the shoes, but they came out really blurry so although I'm raving about how much I love them you can't actually see the full beauty of them! haha! They have a big gold buckle on the sides... and are just the comfiest things ever...

As I have mentioned before I am an absolute magpie when it comes to jewellery, I have tonnes of it, and don't think I'll ever stop buying it! This necklace is from my work (Outfit) a few weeks ago from the Miss Selfridge department, and I love it. You can never go wrong with a bit of turquoise and silver in summer, and I think it complements this floaty gypsy top perfectly.

Nautical Layers...

This is one of those outfits where I didn't plan to put the items together, but I was playing around with layers and thought they balanced each other out quite nicely. 

The striped dress worn underneath is fitted at the top with little capped sleeves, but I was having one of those days were I wanted to feel comfy and hide my tummy, and felt this sporty double layered jumper was perfect for that. 

The weather was warm, but not quite warm enough to warrant having bare arms and legs, and I am a massive fan of layering so felt this was the perfect transitional outfit. 

I decided to keep my jewellery to a minimum (for me anyway!) and paired the outfit with my new shoes from Primark, which I absolutely love! They are sooo comfy, and were an absolute bargain at £14! 

I am definitely going to wear this outfit again during Summer, as the nights get cooler (still waiting for them to heat up to begin with!) but it is one of those looks where I can dress it up with higher chunky heels and a clutch, or dress it down with an across body bag and casual mac.

PS. Please ignore my dodgy tan on these pictures...! :) I am aware my legs are bad! (I opted to wear jeans in the end because of it, but still thought I'd put the pictures up, it happens sometimes!) haha!

Spring fling...

I haven't posted for a while due to various reasons, but I'm going to start making more of an effort with my blog from now on... These pictures where taken a couple of weeks ago, when the first signs of Spring started to creep in.

I have had my eye on this mac from Topshop for months and when I could finally afford it, it had sold out everywhere... que lots of moaning from me and kicking myself that I'd missed out! Then a miracle happened and it came back in stock. This made me very happy, and I haven't taken it off since! (Definitely getting my moneys worth!)

I also bought this lovely jumper from Topshop last month, as it's still cold enough to wear a jumper, but not cold enough for my big winter warmers now, I thought this was the perfect seasonal in between. I love the fresh mint colour, its a welcome change from dark wintery tones, and I know it will see me right through Spring/Summer.

I can't pose at all hence my ridiculous laughing face on these photos!
