Autumn Trend: Tartan

Everywhere I looked on Saturday, there was tartan. I started having bets with myself in my head! Was there actually anyone who didn't wear tartan to the fashion shows last week?! To be honest, I seen this coming with the printed skinny pants trend a while back... and bought myself red tartan skinny pants from Topshop. I love them by the way, they are like an absolute staple in my wardrobe. I love dressing them down with vans and an old t shirt, and dressing them up with a high pointy heel for an effortless, glam night-time look.
I love tartan, I always have, it reminds me of snuggling up, all cozy, in the winter! I also think its really feminine and pretty and can bring a bit of femininity to even the grungiest of outfits! I 110% plan on going wild buying tartan pieces this season from jackets and shirts right down to accessories!

Be Pink for October

This October, so many amazing people are doing so much for Cancer charities. Taking part in campaigns such as Stoptober & Sober for October is an amazing way to help raise the much-needed money for research and medical help for those battling cancer and their families. Whether you decide to get sponsored yourself or if you can make any donation- every penny helps!
October is the official Breast Cancer Awareness month and it is so important to get yourself involved as much as you can! There are so many amazing pink goodies to buy (practically everywhere) to support this cause- and something for everyone's price range! Click this link here for ideas on how you can help!

4. Dream Lip Collection- Estee Lauder ; 5. Tickled Pink Slogan Tee- Asda

Trend: Lingerie Inspired

Lace trimmed camisoles, spaghetti strap satin slips and sheer tops are popping up everywhere! And i'm not talking about the lingerie section! All over the runways at Fashion Week, I noticed a very obvious trend- the lingerie look!
To be perfectly honest, I have always loved this idea, because like most women, on occasion (most of the time), I like to feel feminine and pretty... and what is more feminine and pretty than lace and silk?!
I think this look, if done well, can look amazingly classy too- as well as totally sexy!

Here are some of my favorite lingerie-inspired pieces at the moment!

1. Playsuit- Oh My Love ; 2. Slip Dress- Love @ asos ; 3. Lace Slip Dress- Oh My Love
4. Dress- Jones + Jones ; 5. Lace Cami- Zara ; 6. Velvet Teddy Playsuit- Topshop

Look for Less: Kate Middleton!

This past week, all i've heard are girls everywhere lusting over Kate Middleton's first post-baby dress!
I have to admit, the beautiful cornflower-blue, polkadot dress was top of my 'must-have' list until I quickly realised it was Jenny Packham haute couture, and therefore unavailable for purchase... damn!
I suppose it won't be long before high street stores, and even other high end designers, produce look-a-like dresses but as soon as I seen Kate's, I literally haven't stopped looking!
By the way, I totally love the feminine, figure emphasizing cut of Kate's Jenny Packham dress and I completely admire her for showing off her beautiful post-baby body- what an excellent role model to new mums everywhere! Shame on you OK! magazine!

Celebrity Look for Less - Vanessa Hudgens!

I loved Vanessa Hudgens' girly but edgy look at the 'New Myspace' Launch Party back in June, however at the moment I cannot justify spending almost £1000 on one outfit! (Even though at some point, I will need those Valentino 'Rockstud' heels in my life!)

So since then I have been looking for a similar look for less that won't bankrupt me!

Look for Less: Studded Heels- River Island ; Bowling Jacket- Zara

... Not bad, if I do say so myself! The River Island heels are missing the fabulous straps that the Valentinos have, but at £15 rather than £610 I suppose I can't really complain! Just pair with a basic black tank/ tee, rolled up boyfriend jeans and some punky jewellery!

Shopping and Dinner!

On Thursday evening, Alex & I went shopping in Liverpool to check out the amazing sales (post coming soon with my faves) and later went to La Tasca for tapas.

The weather was very hot & humid so I wore loose, cool clothes and ballet pumps to be as comfy as possible in the heat!

I wore; a Topshop semi-sheer blouse, Topshop skater skirt, New Look ballet flats & carried my Miu Miu 'Vitello Lux' bow bag!

Summer Style

I arrived back home to the UK from Crete, Greece 13 days ago and seem to have brought the Sun with me!
I am absolutely loving this heatwave and all the fabulous Summer Styles I can finally wear!
For day time I love wearing loose dresses, sandals and hats to stay chic but cool- especially if i'm shopping!
For work-wear, go for natural colours that will reflect the light away! i.e.: don't wear too much black! 

Cute & Casual Look: Dress- Zara ; Hat- Warehouse ; Sandals- Stylist Pick ; Shopper Bag- Zara

Business Chic Look: Dress- Zara ; Sunglasses- Gucci ; Heels- Topshop ; Tote Bag- Mulberry

Enjoy the beautiful weather while it lasts! Remember to apply sunscreen!

Hi everyone! I cannot believe how quickly time has flown ... it's slightly depressing! Apologies for my serious lack of blogging- be assured that I still read all of yours practically every day!

The past few months for me have been pretty awful, starting with my last laptop suddenly breaking and me losing absolutely everything on it! I was using my phone from October - January so couldn't really update my blog which sucked! (but could still shop online- yay!).

Since then me and my boyfriend have had really bad luck personally, with his grandparents being unwell and my dad was sadly diagnosed with cancer (please keep us in your prayers!). He seems to be doing really well, thankfully!

I now feel like it's the right time to get my life organised again and really get back on track so I cannot wait to share recent pics and buys etc! Stay tuned!

Lots and lots of love,
