30.3.15 RETRO PUMA






Puma Hoodie - Depop | Cullottes - ASOS | Trainers - Office

Grey and Olive is such a great combo for me.. As I have expressed recently, my wardrobe palette consists of various shades of black, white and grey, with hits of olive, khaki and navy. It looks like the inside of Urban Outfitters right now. I'm not quite sure how this has happened so successfully, or whether my older age has steered me away from daring colours. 

From having all lilac hair two years ago, oh how times are changing. I am liking the colour yellow for some reason and red, and those are two colours I have never owned. So there should be rather interesting outfits to come on Glitter and Grimes guys. 

Today though I styled my new retro Puma hoodie which I finally found after endlessly searching for a gem on Depop. I have paired this ancient sports style piece with my only pair of cullottes from ASOS in the colour Olive. They work really well with all things grey and white, it is the perfect blend of colours in my option. I wore these trousers on the third day of LFW and I wore a grey halter neck with them too.

Still repping Puma, I thought I would wear my white Puma trainers to tie the whole thing together. These pair of Baskets I got in the Office Sale and I still believe they are marked down online. I love all these shades and this outfit is super comfy for a day out at the shops, a business meeting or even just a quick catch up with friends.

Let me know what you guys think and where you find your latest retro sport finds?

DENIM | PRIMARK







Shirt - Primark | Trousers - Topshop | Trainers - Primark

Give it up to Primark for their new Spring Denim collection! I recently went shopping and found this amazing affordable shirt, it is really soft and it was the multi shades which caught my eye. 

Lately the latest denim trends on the high street consist of patchwork, frayed edges and double combos. I liked that the shirt had a patchwork-esque look to it. It was something different and for just £12, a real versatile piece to add to my wardrobe.

I went for a casual take on this shirt, I have on my camel trousers from Topshop. I bought these a few years ago, but camel and nudes have made a considerable come-back this month and I have seen many camel trousers available online at Zara and ASOS if you are looking for that perfect pair. I have remained faithful to this pair, as once you find a comfortable pair of womens trousers that fit no matter how much cake you devour that day, then they are a keeper!

Then I recently picked up a new pair of monochrome sneaks from Primark also. These were just £11 I think and perfect for throwing on to complete an OOTD and ones you aren't afraid to ruin, as you can easily go out and buy a second pair. They are really different and can be worn to look really expensive. To see a closer look at them, check out this picture on my instagram here!

ALL BLACK ALL WHITE







Cloak - Vintage | Scarf - New Look | Jeans - Topshop | Trainers - Primark

New Bargain alert.. 

I picked up this brown faux fur scarf from New Look for just £9 last week! It was in the sale section, as New Look feel for some reason we no longer have a need for scarves in our lifes right now, but as the Winter stock is slowly being marked down across all the high street brands, it is chance for us UK citizens to grab a bargain, as we will be needing the Winter warmers for a few more months yet!!

I again have on an all black combo, it seems to be a re-accuring shade for me at the minute. I think I just feel most comfortable all in black lately and it represents my current state of mind aha!

Second super bargain buy of last week, I have on my latest trainers, from... Primark. Yes I bought trainers from Primark. I have my Puma, Nike and New Balance collection, but when I spotted these beauts, I needed a cheap alternative to throw on day to day and not worry about wearing them out.

Thank me later :)

24.3.15 ON A WEEKDAY








Sweatshirt - Primark | Dress - Weekday | Boots - Internacionale

I love this pinstripe dress by Weekday online. I wore it especially for LFW last month and it went down an absolute treat, I felt amazing that day! Any of you who follow me on Instagram, will have seen how I styled it. I am also featured on Weekday's own Instagram here :) This time I wanted to show you just how versatile this piece is and how you don't just have to wear this as a dress.

I have based this look on some current inspiration I got from Urban Outfitters window displays. There mannequins and merchandising are always on point and they really capture unique looks for the current trends. So this in mind, I decided to hunt down my old denim-look sweatshirt from my never ending wardrobe of clothes I can't bring myself to throw away. I have always been a huge fan of denim but I would say more-so this year! It is the one fabric which is timeless and will just forever be re-invented year on year. I mean, who thought flares would ever make a comeback?

I wanted this Weekday dress to act as more of a incredibly shaped skirt and really emphasise the angles of this lower part to the dress. I really like the denim look with pinstripes too, match made.. what do you think?

Then lastly, just to add some edge and a leather to the whole thing, I have on my dupe Dr Martins boots on to complete the look and throw a biker twist on the whole ensemble.

Comment below guys if you like the look :)

22.3.15 REVERSIBLE CLUTCH









Jumper - H&M | Jeans - Topshop | Trainers - Puma | Clutch - Pauls Boutique

I love this look.. it is one of my favourites of this year. My instagram lately has gone into a monochrome realm, so this outfit seemed fitting. I have on my recently purchased H&M knit. It is a beautiful oversized piece, with a roll neck, splits on the sides and varied lengths. I just put on my black Jamie jeans and Puma trainers and it is a very stylish but comfy outfit. 

Everybody needs a long coat or cloak in their wardrobe, something that you can throw over and outfit and it completes you look. It can also be a great lazy accessory if you are needing an effortless styling morning, you can throw them ontop of anything to make a bold statement. I have a black one and hope to get a grey or khaki colour next. Mine is vintage but I have seem many like mine online and available to you guys!

Next my beautiful clutch by Pauls Boutique.. you have all seen my bright yellow duffle bag which is also part of my collaboration with the amazing PB company. This clean, crisp and minimal black clutch screams Saint Lauren to me. It is so on point and I love the way they have printed the brand in gold letters on the bag. This is also super special on the inside, it is all cream, with a gold printed logo too... the clutch is actually reversible!! So you get two clutches for the price of one and it's amazing how it works. 

If you guys want to take a look at their new SS'15 collection, click in the description bar.

Oh and how many times have I worn my Puma baskets? I am in love, they have the perfect colours on for me, they have the gold badge on the side and the tongue is black and green. All my favourites. You can actually buy these online and I believe they have gone in the sale. 

Again, let me know what you think and if you aren't following me on Bloglovin but love reading my posts, please click follow :)

18.3.15 DARE TO FLARE












Jeans - Miss Pap | Trainers - Puma | Jumper - Next | Coat - Primark

So I took the leap of ...'flare' and finally got myself a pair of the comfiest jeans I own. These light-wash flared jeans are just £19.99, and not only are they affordable, but super stylish. I have seen so many variations of flared jeans online and on instagram and I needed to find the perfect style to ease myself into this new trend and to introduce them to my blog for the first time.

Collaborting with Miss Pap this week, gave me that opportunity to share with you guys the perfect 'first time' flare jeans. These are the cheapest online I have found and the best quality, so I couldn't wait to try them on and style them. 

I have paired them with a camel coloured oversized jumper and matching camel boyfriend coat from Primark. Then I decided to wear my flares with trainers, as I really wanted to emphasise the flare and how they only reveal a small part of your footwear.

Let me know what you guys think in the comment box below and check out the Miss Pap jean range here!

17.3.15 LOVE HOLLY













Dress - Love Holly | Jacket & Scarf - Missguided | Trainers - Puma | Sunglasses - New Look

I love this dress by Love Holly online. I love the angle to it and it can also be worn during the evening time with a pair of heeled boots and a denim jacket.. but I decided to give it a Spring twist and a super comfy take on the dress.

I have styled it with my favourite pair of trainers, my white leather Puma baskets, then I have on a quirky denim badged jacket from Missguided, along with their amazing faux faur scarf. This is such a simple look and great that we can now show some skin in these warmer times.

I am also still obsessing over grey, so I'm looking forward to styling this different ways over the upcoming months.

The Love Holly site is really simplistic and minimal and has various unique style dresses like this one in all my favourite shades. Head over to their site here to find out what I mean!
