Items marked with a * were gifted 

Jacket - Missguided | SkirtASOS | Crop* - In The Style | 
Shoes - Topshop

Another amazing crop top to add to my collection from In The Style. For any of you who follow me on my instagram, will have already seen this beautiful crochet crop top in an orange colour. I can't get enough of them, they are the perfect item to style in so many various ways. This mustard colour is my favourite from all the colours they have available online.

I have paired it up with my denim split front pencil skirt from ASOS. This skirt is a new staple of mine, as it is perfect this time of year to be dressed up or down. I'm really looking forward to styling this in the Winter time with a chunky knit. They have sold out online once before for being the perfect denim choice.

27.7.15 FLORAL MATTERS.










Items marked with a * were gifted 

Kimono Jacket* - In The Style | Jeans - Topshop | Boots - Whistles
Jacket - Missguided | Belt - H&M

New post for you guys... showing you my new Bella Navy Floral Kimono Jacket from In The Style. As I'm now working with In The Style on a regular basis, it is great to be able to style and show you guys new and exciting pieces that they get in every few weeks. 

I thought this time I would go for something a lot more colourful to add to my wardrobe. I recently attended their star studded event in London last week and chose to dress slightly outside my comfort zone and wear their new floral kimono. Yes, I said floral kimono! It comes in two colours, navy and grey and it's super versatile and easy to style in many different ways.

Even though this is a strong Summer statement item, which you would take on your holidays to either have over a bikini in the day with some denim shorts, or to even wear in the evening as a cover up. I have decided to style this more for the Autumn time and put my own take on a Summery looking kimono.

I have on my grey wash Jamie jeans (faves), with my patient boots and a belt round the middle. It already has small delicate buttons at the front holding it together but I thought I would add a belt for texture and layering. Then you just throw on a small jacket and you are good to go for a cinema date with friends or an evening meal. 

Let me know how you would wear it in the comments box below...

26.7.15 DUNGAREES LYF









Tee - Zara | Dungarees - Zara | Converse - Schuh

Hi guys.. I have been in search of a great comfy pair of dungarees for awhile now. Ones that aren't like the normal mainstream styles in Topshop and other highstreet stores. 

I wanted some that looked more worn and were also quite baggy. Dungagrees have been super popular this year and are just so easy to throw on over a comfy tee but also to wear in the Autumn/Winter time with a long sleeved top and scarf.

Whilst doing a bit of shopping in London the other week, I popped into Zara and saw they had lots of varied dungarees styles, so I picked out this cute light denim pair with many rips. They are amazingly comfortable, have just the right amount of slouch and go with just about every t-shirt I have in my wardrobe. 

Really happy with my purchase and styling them with my faithful converse is a win, win for me. So if you guys are after something similar, check out Zara, oh and there are also a really nice pair in Urban Outfitters!

24.7.15 LIPSY A/W'15







As a blogger, I was lucky enough to select some beautiful pieces from Lipsy's new Autumn/Winter Collection. One being this unique Aztec Tassel Knitted Cape. This is now the newest member to my Autumn transitioning wardrobe and a strong favourite to last be through the colder months ahead.

This cape is from the Michelle Keegan collection. With her Summer range having such huge impact and success, there was no surprise the A/W collection would match the hype and expectation. 

This cape is of the most amazing quality, the material is soft on the skin and it is only £30 online. A piece like this, with so much material, you would expect to pay a lot more. It's monochrome shades and textures make it a strong contender to be the ultimate cover up for most outfits this Autumn.

I will be styling this piece '3 ways' in an upcoming post, but for now I thought I would just take some simple snaps of it on, so you guys could get an exclusive look at what it truly looks like.

Let me know what you think and keep an eye out for my next item, which I'm super excited to show you guys :)

23.7.15 FAVE KNITWEAR









Jumper - Zara | Jeans - Primark | Converse - Schuh

Ahhhhh KNITWEAR :) One of my favourite things in the world, mainly for comfort value and they are always the easiest pieces to style! 

I found this absolute bargain in Zara when I went to London for my birthday. The fact that is has a hood, just made it all the more special. This item will be featured in my upcoming birthday haul video, so keep an eye out over on my YouTube channel 'glitterandgrimes'.

I have just styled it with my cheap but comfy Primark ripped jeans and some white converse. This could quite easily be a look I would live in on a day to day basis. Knitwear and converse are my best friend as soon as the months becomes cooler.

Let me know what you favourite piece of knitwear is below..

AUTUMN TRANSITIONING










Items marked with a * were gifted 

Jumpsuit - H&M | Necklace - Primark | Shoes* - Public Desire

Hi guys, sorry I haven't posted as frequently as I would normally do. I haven't been well and as I'm starting to feel much better, I felt it was time to finally edit some of the posts that have been sat patiently waiting in my Macbook library.

I'm definitely transitioning into Autumn now and believe it or not.. I'm over Summer already! Roll on the jumpers, scarves and boots. I'm naturally a Summer baby and I do love the fact the heat lifts peoples moods, but when you live in the UK, it is so unpredictable that is just chaos and confusion most mornings when it comes to deciding on what to wear. 

With the UK Winter time, least we all know where we stand and I LOVE knitwear!
Here is an Autumn transition night time glam look.. I have on a faux suede style jumpsuit/boiler suit which I picked up recently from H&M. I love the colour grey and it is a great colour match for a statement jewellery piece in silver. It pops! 

I have teamed up this outfit with some black glam, which are my most recent pair of PD's, their Megara Lace Up Stilettos. They are so incredibly comfy!! Looking at the height and style of them, this was debatable, but that's one of the things I love about Public Desire, they are always comfortable.

Really hope you have drawn some great inspo from this look, let me know what you guys think in the comment box below :)

18.7.15 A FLARE STATEMENT








Top - Illustrated People | Trousers - ASOS | Sliders - Nike 

Hi guys, how amazing are these glittery orange flares? I wanted to style them quite casual for a Summer time vibe. I love this outfit.. I have on one of my favourite go-to tees by Illustrated People, I popped on a statement necklace and sliders and I was good to go.

I think the trousers worked really well with black and if you are looking for something eye catching but comfortable to take away with you or to wear to an outdoor event or festival, then I would definitely check out this pair online.

To complete the look I would just throw a studded black leather jacket on top and a fedora!

Hope you enjoyed x
