7.7.15 WHAT'S IN MY BAG?


FEELING GREEN






Items marked with a * were gifted 

Jumpsuit - Motel Rocks* | Sandals - River Island* | Sunglasses - Ray Ban | 
Bag - Warehouse

Oh hi Green!!! Motel Rocks sent me out this awesome wow green jumpsuit. It isn't a colour I would usually wear so boldly and it tends to freak me out wearing just one whole bold colour.. but I friggin love it.

Motel Rocks have made my day yet again and I thought I would style this with all black accessories to give a elegant but grungy spin on the whole look.

I have on my leather-look buckled platform sandals from River Island, a Warehouse crossover bag, buckled choker and Ray Ban sunglasses. This is the perfect look for a day of shopping or a picnic in the sun with friends.

I am forever falling in love with jumpsuits at the minute and dunagrees, as they are a great throw on piece with no fuss, but they really make a statement. You can put under a really cute top, a choker and some sandals and you are good to go. The beauty of this Shelby Jumpsuit is you can dress it up and down to suit the occasion!!

If you guys are after a statement jumpsuit for a night out or just something to wear in the day, then check out this beaut here!

3.7.15 DENIM DAYS | OH MY LOVE










Dress - Oh My Love | Trainers - Converse | Fedora - H&M

It was another beautiful day in the UK, so I took some quick snaps of my OOTD. Something very simple that I could wear in the garden and out to the shops to pick up some food for the BBQ this evening. 

I have on a basic grey v-neck tee.. a true staple of mine, as I have quite a few variations in my wardrobe. Then I have on my denim Oh My Love dress which I picked up in the sale and then I've finished the look off with my faithful converse.

Hope you like this quick look & all enjoying the beautiful weather.

1.7.15 IN THE SUEDE







Items marked with a * were gifted 

Denim Jacket - Levi's | Crochet Crop - Olive & Frank* | Skirt - InTheStyle* | Trainers - River Island*

It was so hot yesterday and I needed a super cute outfit that I felt comfortable in and could also take with me a casual cover up when I popped out.

I have on my new faux suede skirt from InTheStyle which is the second piece from my collaboration with them. I had seen so many tanned suede skirts on instagram and they always look extremely versatile this time of year, so I picked this to style various different ways. Plus it is super affordable!!

I have styled this with my crochet crop which I was kindly gifted last year and which is always a great Summer essential and I have on my River  Island white trainers with the gold detailing and an oversize black Levi denim shirt which I use as a cover up.

Let me know what you think to this look... & I'm also giving my followers an exclusive 10% off at InTheStyle online. Just use the code 'MONIQUE10' at the checkout!!

Top - InTheStyle* | Jeans - Primark | Trainers - Converse | Cardigan - Primark

Visited my nan and grandads the other day and seeing as I had my camera on me, I thought I would do a quick day time OOTD post for you guys. InTheStyle recently gifted me this gorgeous burnt orange faux suede top, and I wanted to style it with a casual twist and then for a more night time glam look in a post to come. 

So here is a very casual look, my every day ripped jeans from Primark, pair of converse and a comfy baggy cardigan over the top. I love the accent of colour, whilst keeping everything else very muted.

I have always been a Converse girl and I also own a pair in white and in tartan print, but I always feel like my black and white pair go with just about any outfit, even dresses. So these are such a simple go-to pair.

With my collaboration with InTheStyle this month, I will be showing you various ways to wear some exciting new pieces from their online range and also offer you 10% off this Summer :)

Just use the code 'MONIQUE10' and enjoy!!

24.6.15 BELL SLEEVES | SUMMER PERFECT










Top - ASOS | Trousers - Topshop | Shoes - ASOS | Bag - Warehouse | Necklace - Tara Osborne Jewellery

Arghh I love everything about this outfit, I love stylish yet super comfortable and that is what I always aim for. These Topshop pants are quite a few years old now, but camel coloured bottoms seem a great trend for this year, so I dug these out the wardrobe!! I have styled them with my new ASOS 70s inspired lace front top. 

I have had this for a good few weeks now, and they appear to be out of stock online, but lets hope for you guys they get more back in soon because this top is currently the perfect Summer staple and looks great with both skirt and trouser options. Oh and who doesn't love bell sleeves at the minute.

Then I am showing off my new black minimal accessory.... my new bag :) I love finding bargains like this and I picked this up recently in the Warehouse sale. This perfect black leather-look crossbody bag with the high shine hardware on the front is my idea of a perfect simple look bag which you can take out most days!! It is the perfect size if you are on the go and can get things out of the double compartments really easily.

Hope you guys liked it.. thanks for reading x

21.6.15 BLACK SLEEK PALAZZO









Items marked with a * were gifted 

Bandeau - New Look | Palazzo Pants* - River Island | Sandals* - River Island | Sunglasses* - River Island

Ok, so you guys are probably sick of me harping on about my new Palazzo pants, but I am obsessed!!

They are super comfy, they go with everything, then add such glamour to an outfit, they are a figure flatterer and .... I could go on!

I wanted to put together a really simple outfit for either a festival option, a day out with friends for Summer drinks or a day to night option by just throwing on some heels. I love to style my palazzo pants with a simple bandeau top. I get mine from New Look for a bargain price of £2.99!

This look is really easy and you can mix up the colours how you like. Just to add a pop of colour I have put on some colourful reflecting retro sunglasses.

Let me know how you guys style your palazzo pants? ;)
