30 Days of Style: Day 10

imageimage

Well I’m a third of the way there now! I’m going to miss taking these quick snaps when the 30 days are over…but I’ll savour the extra few minutes in bed haha!

Todays post is super quick as I had a pretty plain outfit on. My jeans are the bleach was Leigh jeans from Topshop in Petite- not sold anymore but there’s plenty more colours online.

My vest top is also from Topshop, I love simple tops like this that are easy to throw on with not much thought 🙂 It’s a Topshop bargain too at only £12!

My Blazer isn’t showing up true to colour, but this has lime green and fascia pink thread running through it, looks much nicer in real life and just adds something to an otherwise boring outfit.

Hope you enjoyed tonight’s short and sweet post. Who else is ready for that Saturday morning lie in? I sure am 🙂

30 Days of Style: Day 9

I have 20 minutes to kill before my boyfriend meets me, what better way to kill 20 minutes than a cheeky Costa and blogging :-p

I also just went for a quick look around my local boots….2 huge shopping bags later I left haha! Mostly Christmas presents in my defence, however I did pick up a few essentials, conditioner, cleanser, toner you know the drill. I have gone back to my old faithful conditioner from Bleach London: I swear by this stuff….(few hours later now as the Bf showed up early haha) anyway back to my product rave, this conditioner is like liquid gold for the hair, it leaves it soooo soft, and as I have said before I have really dry, coarse, frizzy hair naturally, so it’s a pretty good claim from my picky hair! I will leave the link below so you can read the reviews yourself.

Just incase you wanted to know what other necessities I picked up, I took a quick snap! Boots has 3 for 2 at the moment so I always stock up on things, I like a backup haha! The toner I have used for years, if you have acne prone skin this ones for you, it’s REALLY strong, but does help to clear those unsightly spots, defo not for anyone with dry skin. I use the cleanser as an eye makeup remover, it’s an oil based cleanser and gets every scrap of mascara off in pretty much one swipe, worth every penny in my books. I usually use batiste dry shampoo but fancied trying something new, this Umberto Gianni one had good reviews so thought I would give it a whirl.

Anyway, onto the intended post…outfit! Here is todays choice:

imageimageimageimage

 

My shirt is from H&M, a flowy polka dot 3/4 sleeve. I love H&M for shirts, they are really inespensive too, think this was about £12! My jeans are ripped Joni jeans from the Petite range and my tartan scarf is from Primark, I was already umming and ahhing when I wore this, now i’ve sen the pics im even less of a fan haha! Its a bit…..limp, short, thin haha!!

 

Anyway,

 

Hope you enjoyed

30 Days of Style: Day 8

image image image image

 

Day 8, I feel like I have been posting these forever haha!

This morning was an early one, hence the hair thrown up haha, well that and it was hair wash day. It’s been soooo cold outside recently, I’m always sat at my desk shivering so decided to dig out a winter warmer today. This jumper is a ribbed knit, quite thick and the perfect fit; not too snug or too loose. Jumpers can often drown me as I’m only short, or can make me look quite…..butch haha, that might be mind over matter but there’s something about jumpers I find a bit frumpy haha! That been said I really like this one, I got it last year from Primark, I think by memory it was about £15ish! Bargain!

My skirt is from Topshop (surprise, surprise) I love the colours in this, it looks lovely in summer with a cami tucked in, but for now it’s doing me just fine with black tights 🙂

My boots are my old faithful cut outs from River Island, I will be sad when I have to say goodbye to these, they are the comfiest, easiest thing to wear with any outfit but I think they have probably seen better days now to be honest.

We went to see The Hunger Games this evening, I wasn’t overly impressed to be honest, I found it dragged quite a bit and took a while to get going, have you been to see it?

30 Days of Style: Day 7

image imageimage

The more I upload these posts, the more I realise what a limited shopper I am haha! My clothes are always predictably from Topshop, Zara or River Island, maybe it’s time to spread my shopping wings….

Inevitably my outfit today is as above, Topshop Joni Jeans, in petite! Perfect figure hugging jeans, they sit just nicely above my ankle too 🙂 I think the shade I bought have sold out, but I found some similar below.

http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?searchTerm=Petite+jeans+&storeId=12556&productId=17077834&urlRequestType=Base&categoryId=&langId=-1&productIdentifier=product&catalogId=33057

My Peter Pan style blouse is from Zara in the summer sale. I love the fit of this blouse, a lot of collars are too restrictive on me, I don’t like them tight around my neck, and this is perfect, I think I actually bought the wrong size but I much prefer a loose fitting top so win win for me 🙂 It also had a built in necklace, 3 dainty gold chains which adds a little something different to an otherwise plain Jane blouse.

Finally, I teamed my outfit with my Zara heeled boots, which I’ve posted in previous blogs. I found the link below for anyone who wants a better look.

30 Days of Style: Day 6

It it was a chilly one this morning….had to dig out my winter coat as my leather jacket isnt cutting it recently! My coat is from Zara last winter, I haven’t managed to find one I like yet this year boooo 😦 I really need one with a hood as im forever losing umbrellas so end up looking like a drowned rat! Not the best of looks haha!

This coat is really heavy and warm, made extra snuggly with the faux fur collar. My skirt is from Topshop….kinda feels like something from clueless haha! I literature have a million and one of these Lycra tops. I buy mine from Primark and restock every winter, I buy them in black and white, they literally go with everything! I love a simple, plain top!

Hope you enjoyed 🙂 See you tomorrow

30 Days of Style: Day 5

image image image image image image

Today’s outfit needed to be shopping centre appropriate, no scarf or jacket today as I knew I was only going to be indoors and would end up carrying them. My floral wrap-a-round skirt is from Zara in the summer, it’s one of those tube style type skirts so quite form fitting, I like that because it means it doesn’t end up back to front and twisting like a lot of A-Line skirts do in me. My denim shirt is from Topshop….about 4 years ago now haha! To say I’m a shirt lover, this shirt often gets neglected, I think it’s because it’s kinda rigid anddddd I could never do double denim, so struggle to find something to wear with it. That’s pretty much the be all and end all of my outfit today.

I got my first Christmas edition drink today. Chocolate Orange Hot Chocolate from Costa, accompanied with a Salted Caramel Yule log! Ahhhmazing!!! We were at the Trafford Centre in Manchester doing a spot of Christmas Shopping, I love it when they bring all the decorations out, it looks so festive. I had a nosy in John Lewis too at their Christmas Decorations as I had seen http://www.xameliax.com ‘s   recent video, the Christmas Decorations were adorable! I could have spent a small fortune haha, especially on their snow globes 🙂

Hope you enjoyed

30 Days of Style: Day 4

image image image image image

After yesterday’s fail I was certain to make sure my pictures had saved this morning, success!

Today’s post is simple with a pop of colour. These Topshop Leigh jeans are the staple of my wardrobe, they go with literally anything and fit like a glove. I don’t think I own any other brand of jeans but Topshop, they fit my leg length and waist perfectly, no turn overs or baggy knees for me please 🙂

I dressed my jeans with a simple white, cross over shirt from River Island (http://www.riverisland.com/women/tops/blouses–shirts/Cream-wrap-blouse-658701) I love this style of shirt, a V-neck suits me much more than any other style of top, and these are so effortless and comfy. My pop of colour comes in the form of this Zara blazer. I got this last summer from the TRF section for £60, it looks great in summer with light denim shorts or a midi dress 🙂

My cream Tartan scarf is another Primark bargain, same as yesterday’s but just a different colour. I have another one of these in a red shade too haha #addicted! I did get these scarfs last year but there’s always some good scarfs in Primark. My final item are these cute pixie like tan boots! I almost always wear black boots, but it’s nice to switch things up sometimes 🙂

Hope you enjoyed, have a nice weekend 🙂
