Versace for H&M

H&M has collaborated once again with an amazing designer and I can sense my bank card is screaming! I need to get my hands on some of these amazing affordable pieces! Although some of the more elaborate pieces are definitely not for me, there are quite a few that I wouldn't mind trying my best to pull off! It's a well known fact that most of Versace's pieces are quite eccentric- to say the least, and make very bold statements! So all of you confident girls out there, get queuing!

Here are a few of my favourites from this collection!

This blouse is just adorable and totally versatile! This look stunning over some leather skinny pants/ black skinny jeans and sky scraper platform heels, maybe with a fur gillet as well, for a night out... Or for a chic cute look in the day why not pair it up with a long, layered pearl necklace, thick tights and this skirt below, also from the V for H&M collection!

This skirt is also an amazing piece, it just oozes old hollywood glamour/ French chic sophistication! It would look amazing with the top above or you could wear it in the style of possibly one of the most elegant and glamorous British women, Emma Watson.

She wore a similar skirt at an event here and looked absolutely beautiful! I just love the detail on this skirt, the fabric, the pleats, the detail at the bottom, just wow! it will flatter your waist, bum, and make you look instantly chic!

I also love this skirt from the collection

I would personally wear this with quite a plain blouse, maybe an ivory coloured silk top with a single stunning gold embellished necklace because you don't want to go over the top with this skirt as it has alot of detail and you wouldn't want too much as it would be in your face! so I would keep jewellery and other prints very minimal, one necklace would do! Less is more as my nana used to say! Very true! pair it with some tights and ballet flats/ simple heels!

Although this colour is very loud and out there I just love this dress

The structure is so stunning and the simple detail means you can totally get away with the colour! I would wear this with a simple ivory platform pump with a slight pearly tone! A YSL tribtoo pump springs to mind! I think that would be perfect or just a plain black platform pump. Again I would keep it simple as the dress makes a big statement! Think Kim Kardashian with this dress, this is definitely her style! As well as looking very sophisticated and elegant in this dress due to the fabulous length, you would also look ultra sexy as it hugs and emphasises every curve!

So these were just a few of my loves from this Versace for H&M collection, I hope you girls can get your hands on something you really like!
Love, Rachael xoxo

Fireworks over the river!

Last night my lovely boyfriend took me to the river to watch the Queen Mary 2 leave Liverpool and the firework display over the River Mersey! It was absolutely stunning! Next time I need to get more pictures! I wore a coral ruffle tank top from Next, H&M skinny jeans, Topshop pumps and a New Look kimono style gold cardigan! I carried my Chanel :)

Charity Night!

Every year my dad cycles to Paris in aid of the Royal British legion, and we always host a Charity Night to raise money for the cause about a week before he sets off! All of my family attend as well as lots of friends and this year we raised an amazing amount for the RBL! The night was a lot of fun, I loved laughing away with my family and listening to the entertainment! My dad is in a band so they got up, as well as my brother and a few guest acts! I hope next year is just as successful! I wore J brand jett pencil leg jeans, a beige lacey crop top from Kimchi & Blue @ Urban Outfitters and Christian Louboutin Decollete 100 jazz pumps in patent black! I also had a black velvet Topshop shrug to keep me warm but I had it off most of the night! I carried my Chanel 2.55 handbag in black!

Auntie's birthday!

I love seeing my family, we always have a lot of fun... and my auntie's birthday party was no exception! It was just at her house so I dressed quite casually but I absolutely love the Topshop tunic I wore! I'm a massive fan of brightly coloured embroidery because it just stands out and looks so pretty! I also wore Siwy skinny jeans and Topshop suede flats with pearl ankle detail :)

Date night :)

I actually never remember to take pictures when i'm going out but this time I remembered and i'm glad because I loved my outfit! I wore a Kimchi & Blue pale pink tank with a cute lace neckline, fabulous high waisted navy shorts with heart print from Topshop, a really adorable tweed cropped jacket from H&M, which went with the cute feminine look I was going for. I accessorized with an oversized dusky pink pearl style necklace, thick black tights and black Topshop suede pumps which again went with my look as they have pearls and chains that go around the ankle! I carried my Chanel, ofcourse :)

Out for drinks

Just another cute outfit from Friday when I went out for drinks to bars with the girls and boys, had to come home at around midnight to get changed as we decided to hit the clubs and I was far too hot in my sweater, but I didn't get pics of the second
outfit :(
Anyway my first one was a gorgeous cable knit white sweater from New Look, Miss Selfridge skinny jeans and Topshop pumps with ankle beads and chains :) I carried my Balenciaga Part Time.

For my second outfit I kept on the same shoes but changed to my J Brand Jett pencil leg jeans and wore a ivory short sleeve Topshop blouse with a cute zip neck detail. I switched bags to my Chanel 2.55 in black.

Summer fun with the family :)

Just a few snaps from a lovely family day in my Garden :) Nothing better than a day relaxing at home in the sun! I wore My Jen's Pirate booty Cha Cha tube top, a Beautiful floral pink maxi skirt from Dorothy Perkins and my Sam Edelman Gigi sandals in black. I also wore a cute little arm bangle which I found at a random shop near home and my Asos floppy hat!

Fun in the Sun...

Yesterday was a reallly busy day for me and I was so tired when I finally got to bed at 2am! It was lovely and sunny so I wore some white Topshop cut off shorts with a Kimchi & Blue cami, Sam Edelman sandals and I carried my Balenciaga. I also wore my Rayban Cats sunglasses!
Perfect casual summer outfit for shopping, dinner, drinks and playing with my dog in the field!

Je t'aime Paris!

My dad is going to Paris tomorrow, he's cycling there from London in aid of the Royal British Legion... i'm really jealous that he gets to be in my favourite city so I decided to wear one of my favourite 'Paris' tops to cheer me up and kind of get him in the spirit! I love this top from Urban Outfitters, was a steal on sale so couldn't resist! I love the different blues and the boxy fit, and of course, the Paris theme! It goes with everything, looks good over skinny jeans, a maxi skirt, shorts, anything! I wore it today with my very comfortable Current Elliott torn jeans in natural. I really reccomend Current Elliott jeans as they are so unique looking and of amazing quality but I suggest you size down as they tend to run large!
Perfect comfortable outfit for a not-so-sunny, summer's day! Rachael xoxo

Gone are my teenage days...

Hey guys, so sorry i've been neglecting this blog yet again! I've actually just came back from Corfu where I spent my 20th birthday and it was absolutely fabulous!!
I stayed in an absolutely beautiful hotel called Grand Mediterraneo in a gorgeous part of the island, full of trees and flowers and the sound of the ocean <3
I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Corfu as it is everything you need in a holiday, stunning views, a beach, fabulous pools and bars, and the staff are there to take care of your every need!
So here I have a few pictures to bore you all with! Enjoy :)
