Nautical Tailoring



I wore this beautiful shorts suit last weekend  to my friends 21st birthday party. I absolutely love this stripe print, it is so minimal yet so beautiful. I especially love the back of the jacket, although the open back means that the front seems a lot bigger than it really is. I accessorised with my favourite clutch bag 'designer handbag' I find so funny because it is obviously not as it is from boohoo! I popped on my favourite chunky burgundy shoes to complete the look. I love the look of navy and burgundy together, so I thought this was the best pair of shoes to go for. 
Believe it or not, I literally had the worst hair day in the world that day! The best thing I could do was to straighten it (sorry hair!) and scrape it back adding hairspray for the 'slicked back' look.

Casual Culotte Jumpsuit


Paisie Jumpsuit / Converse / French Connection Bag 

I am not somebody who regularly wears converse, or flat shoes at all for that matter - I am more of a chunky shoe boot kind of girl. I felt a huge sense of relief when I headed out at the weekend in my sisters white high top converse. I found myself thinking why don't I do this more often? I walk faster in them, I am 100x more comfortable, it would mean that running for the bus in the morning wouldn't be half as embarrassing as it is when I totter across the road in the vain hope of not falling over. However, at the same time I did miss that little totter and once you fall in love with a bit of height, it is hard to go back. I was wearing this fab jumpsuit though so I still felt feminine even though I didn't have my regular little totter. Seriously, how gorgeous is it? It is another awesome piece from the brand Paisie that I borrowed last weekend from the showroom I work at.

Powder Blue Shirt Dress



French Connection Bag / Primark Ring / Olivia Burton Watch

This shirt dress was a hit and miss. Well it was a hit with me and a miss with everyone else... My Mum, Sister and Boyfriend all hated it as apparently it looks like I have just escaped from hospital! Fair point but I still love it. This dress is something I actually borrowed  from the showroom I work at for the weekend. It is a piece from Paisie's SS15 collection. I love absolutely every single piece from this collection, I have a feeling they will be massive. I opted for a grey toned bag and holographic heels to compliment the pastel blue tone of the dress, as I think black accessories could have been too harsh. Once again, I have gone very minimal with my jewelry and accessories, I guess I am just not a jewelry kind of person!

An Evening At Gusto Manchester


(Market Top / Miss Selfridge Dress / Missguided Boots
Accessorize Clutch)

Last week I was invited to the Forever Manchester cocktail launch at Gusto in Manchester. It was my first time visiting Gusto and I have to say I was impressed. Me and my sister had many cocktails - including the Forever Manchester which tastes of Vimto (Vimto was created in Manchester if you didn't know like me!) £1 of every Forever Manchester cocktail sold goes to the charity which helps tp fund community groups and projects across Greater Manchester. I'd probably say that it was one of the best meals I have ever had. For the starter we had the worlds biggest flat bread witht he worlds nicest. creamiest hummous. For our mains, I had a Pork Gnocci dish and my sister had a Duck pizza with a hosin base - we obviously ended up having half and half classy. Too full to have a pudding we opted for another cocktail instead! I wasn't able to get many photos as the lighting wasn't very good and the flash was blinding the other guests! I did manage to sneak a picture of our mains though...

My outfit for the night is one I have worn many times before, but never though to document on my blog. I love the combination of this dress and the top I have put over it as they are both quite structured pieces. I have once again opted for minimal zero accessories because I guess I like to let the outfit speak of it's self.

On Sunday I had the pleasure of being invited to the Manchester Fashion Industry SS15 Nude tones event. The fashion show was held at the incredibly posh Manchester House on the 12th floor, which meant that we had an amazinggggg view. The strict dress code was nude and the above and below is what I wore.

Here were my favourite looks from the fashion show which included designs from Ono Uno, Goodwin Smith and Risk Couture.
