Sunshine and Ripped Jeans

Sunshine and Ripped Jeans

First of all I’m sorry for the lack of blog posts the past couple of weeks, I kind of took an impromptu holiday, I didn’t actually go away, well except Berlin for work, but it seems when your husband is off work all you want to do is play and eat lots of food!!! I have to admit I’m finding it hard this week getting back into a groove. It isn’t that I’m struggling for content, I’ve got loads, I’m actually a little overwhelmed about where to start with it all. I have my trip to Berlin, which by the way, was amazing, a spa review, a new beauty brand obsession, more style posts including my favourite maxi dress and some jazzy strippy trousers from Asos, as well as sharing more of my travels to Kuala Lumpur. I just can’t believe how busy I’ve been, normally August is a little downtime before the madness of fashion week, but not this year. 

So as it has been two weeks since my last style post so I thought I would share one from my recent Berlin trip and show off the amazing ripped jeans from American Eagle Outfitters that I was raving about in a recent blog post on their pop-up in Old Street station, which by the way is still open until September 20, as well as this bargain sleeveless  coat from Boohoo.com, which is now only £12 – for more great options check out this shopping post

Summer Wedding Guest Style

Summer Wedding Guest Style

So last year was all about our wedding, this year it seems we have a wedding in every season, which can I just say makes it extra difficult to plan wedding guest outfits, but I’m totally up for the challenge!!! I’ve already shared my winter/spring wedding look earlier this year, and here is my summer wedding guest style, I sense a theme I do love a pop of colour at a wedding. 

Summer I think is the easiest season to find something for a wedding the high street is filled with occasional wear for the prom, racing and wedding season, but it is hard sometimes deciding on a look especially when you aren’t sure what sort of shindig you are attending. But one thing I can tell you is colour is never a bad thing at a wedding, unless it is a black and white theme, colour is cheerful, you will pop in pictures, and if you can’t go bright at a wedding when can you!!!

My Style: Pretty Floral Skirt


No matter how hot is out there, even the hottest day of the year so far, it seems that I still can’t help wearing black and chunky boots, it seems that my wardrobe and style is all about winter. Don’t get me wrong I have pretty dresses in summer hues, I get them out on occasions, it is just I prefer black. So my compromise, with myself to wear more summery clothes, is this adorable dark floral skirt.

I don’t have many floral prints in my wardrobe but this one appealed due to the darker vibe as well as the neon pink kick, plus it is in my favourite flattering skater skirt silhouette. I was going to pair this Primark beauty with a neon pink boyfriend T-shirt, but I just couldn’t find it, but my trusty black one was easy to find, I have like 10 of them!!!

But you know what, I think the print and bare legs make this look summery enough, I hope, but I do think a brighter or even white top would have made it pop even more in the sunshine. I think the extra sparkle of this gorgeous Next necklace and Citizen Eco-Drive watch helps though – they both really catch the light perfectly.

Are you a lover of wearing black even on the hottest of days?

My Style: Stripes & Tiny Tim


My outfits are normally pretty safe, I like jeans, jumpers, ankle boots, the occasional flared skirt, leather pencil skirt, and dress, as well as statement jewellery and a great handbag – so I never thought that I would buy or wear stripy jeans!!!

I bought these beauties at the Donna Ida pop-up at Cheshire Oaks, not only were they a bargain down from £150 to £25, but Donna herself convinced me to try them on and to be honest who am I to argue with the Queen of Denim.

When I saw them I loved them, the mint colour is just amazing, but I instantly thought I could not only pull them off but my chunky thighs would look even bigger – what surprised me the most is how they are actually flattering and slimming.

To tone down the stripes and to make it more me I decided to pair them with lots of black – a chunky jumper, cut-out boots and my new Anya Hindmarch ‘Tiny Tim’ handbag, which granted doesn’t hold a lot but is oh so pretty.

Considering I was pretty nervous about rocking these jeans once on I felt amazing and I think I pulled them off by keeping the styling simple. I can’t wait for summery weather as they would look great with a black tee and strappy black heels.

How would you style these stripped beauties?
