Boho Chick

Today is really sunny outside, and not really that cold! So I decided to wear an outfit that would bring a little bit of summer to November!
I'm wearing a Rose - pink, floral maxi skirt from Dorothy Perkins, My favourite Joie boots, and a cute ivory sweater from Topshop <3

I'm also wearing two rings, both from Dorothy Perkins, and a necklace from Topshop.

Today I think I will carry my Cole Haan Raleigh bag because it's not often I can use it in winter in the UK as the rain would ruin it! plus I just love it - the perfect boho bag!

Hope you like it :) I will post actual pictures when my camera gets fixed!
Thanks for looking, Rachael,xoxo.

Outfit Time!

Today I had a relaxing day doing absolutely nothing :) Me and Alex lay in all day and watched Toy Story 2 <3
I wore a comfy sweater from Topshop, some Hollister sweat pants and cute thermal socks from Primark because it was absolutely FREEEEEZING! I also wore a cute long necklace and a jewelled ring, both from Topshop, to brighten up a very miserable winters day!

38 days until Christmas...

I can't believe how fast this year has gone! Just over a month until Christmas! Luckily I started my shopping in September so I'm almost done and aren't really panicking! 
Although... I do have to fully decide on what I want as my main presents from my FiancĂ© Alex and my Mum (I do have a very good idea of what I want though!) :)
Perfect opportunity for some new accessories I think!
My Mum always gets me a pair of shoes for Christmas every year- Last year I got the cutest pair of Pradas! This year i'm thinking of some YSL's because I am in love with some of this years styles! 
In particular the Cognac coloured suede 'Tribute' pumps! They are to die for! Classy with the leather knot style, sky high stiletto and simple design, yet kinda boho with the tan colour suede!
Yeah I think I know what I'm getting from my mum!
If you aren't sure which ones I mean, here's a pic along with the link to Net-a-Porter!

From Alex, I want a new handbag! I'm really obsessed with handbags and I would normally go for ones that are a bit unique because I hate having a handbag that everyone else has! Cole Haan handbags are my calling- gorgeous and every style is so different!
So i'm going for the complete opposite of that and am thinking of going for a Balenciaga! Yes they all look practically the same, but I don't have one and it will be unique to my collection!
I was in a store called 'Cricket' in Liverpool and saw the 'Giant Part Time' bag in black with gold hardware and I fell in love! 
The leather is so buttery soft and the giant studs are so cool looking in person! 
I think every girl needs that big, durable, cool looking bag that goes with everything, and I think the 'Part Time' was made for that purpose!

Well I think I've pretty much convinced myself of two amazing presents :) All of a sudden 38 days seems ages away!

Welcome :)

Hi! And Welcome to my blog!
I am absolutely obsessed with fashion and different styles! I could spend all day searching the net for something new and funky!
Here I will post my recent outfits, purchases and my wish list! 
My favourite stores/ sites are: Topshop, Urban Outfitters, Hollister, A+F, ASOS, Revolve, Planet Blue and some more I can't think of.
As far as my style goes, its very varied to say the least. I love mixing it up which is why I put an image showing Coco Chanel and a Planet Blue model as my header picture.
Sometimes I like classic sophisticated looks, and other times I love to be completely laid back and boho!
I don't really 'follow' fashion and go with the latest trends as such, as I like to throw in my own twist :) 
When people ask me who my style icon is, I always say Vanessa Hudgens! She always looks amazing and she dresses similarly to me so I sometimes steal her ideas! <3

Hope you guys enjoy reading my posts! 
Love Rachael xoxo.
