Monday Wishlist #23

1. River Island Abstract Check Waterfall Jacket: I don't know why, but I have a thing for jackets. I have quite a collection already, but there's always room for a few more, right? I love the abstract check print, and the flash of yellow. A great jacket to throw over jeans and a tee to liven up your outfit. 

2. Topshop Petite Wrap Jersey Playsuit: This grey jersey playsuit would be a great wardrobe staple. Wear now with some sandals, or with opaque tights, boots and a leather jacket in the autumn. 

3. River Island Black Croc Zip Front Platform Shoes: These shoes are absolute beauties! I love how they are a cut out boot/sandal hybrid. The chunky heel and platform means they will be fairly comfortable, too. Need them in my life! 

4. New Look Black Ribbed Trim Sleeveless Dress: I like the idea of sports luxe, but don't really come across much sporty clothing that I actually like. This dress would be great to wear with a pair of white converse for a relaxed weekend look, and then simply sway out your converse for a pair of high heels and there's your Saturday night outfit sorted.

WIWTW (What I Wore This Week) #40

On Monday I fancied wearing my tan fedora, although I didn't end up wearing it out of the house. For some reason it just doesn't sit right on me. I think my hair needs to be longer to pull it off. We'll see in a few months! I kept the rest of my outfit simple with a textured vest top, my ripped boyfriend jeans and a pair of tan sandals. The perfect casual summer outfit. 

Vest = Topshop (old)/Jeans = New Look/Sandals = New Look/Hat = ASOS

MAC Makeover & Haul // My experience

Way back in April my lovely boyfriend bought me a voucher to get my make-up done at MAC. If you don’t know how this works, you buy a voucher for £30, book an appointment to get your make-up done, then on the day of your appointment your voucher is redeemable against any products you buy. Basically you have £30 to spend at MAC and you get your make-up done. Score!

How I Style: The Midi Dress #2

Rather than giving you a boring 'dressed up' version of this outfit, with a pair of heels, I thought I'd give it a bit of a biker feel. This is an outfit I'd probably wear if I was going out for a meal, or even just meeting one of my friends for a few drinks. 

This biker gilet used to be a jacket. It had knitted sleeves, which over time got a bit bobbly, so I cut them off!

A pair of cut out ankle are my go to shoes of choice to wear with a dress when I don't want to go with a pair of classic heels, although a black pointy toed stiletto would look amazing with this dress.

How I Style: The Midi Dress #1

Hi everyone,

This week I'm styling another item of clothing I was kindly sent from justfor5pounds. If you missed the first item I styled from this brand (a lovely mac) you can catch those posts here and here . This around I picked out this gorgeous midi dress. I chose my regular size, a 10, and before it arrived I was a little worried that I maybe should have chosen a size 12 in case it was smaller fitting. When it arrived my worries dissipated as it fit like a glove. I think I'd go as far as saying this is the nicest midi dress I've ever worn/tried on. Considering this dress only costs £5, I was very pleasantly surprised.

Today I've styled this dress in a very casual way. My New Look boat-style shoes have an Aztec print, but they also have a burgundy colour in the print, the same as the dress. Mixing the two different prints of the dress and the shoes gives a young, fun look to what could easily be a more formal dress.
