Embellished Shorts



|| Shorts - French Connection || Jumper - Primark || Fur Scarf - French Connection || 
|| Boots - Missguided || Coat - Forever 21 ||

I have been longing to wear these shorts for a while. I actually got them as a sample at French Connection as the weather was getting quite nippy and had in mind that I would wait until summer to wear them. In the end I just decided to whack them over a pair of tights because I couldn't take them just hanging in my wardrobe all alone and unloved! The embellishment on them is beautiful, I am not sure that this exact colour combination will be used but I know they will be in stores in the summer sometime. As I have said before, these beautiful boots literally transform an outfit, at last minute I changed from the chunky boots I always seem to wear and my popped them on.

NYE Outfit


|| Dress - French Connection || Bag - River Island (similar here) || Shoes - Topshop ||

I never got the chance to take any good photos of what I was wearing on new years eve as it was dark and I like to take pictures in natural light. I love the dress I wore so much that I had to pop it on here. It was another sample sale bargain, and is actually a bargain now at even less than half price in the sale! For new year, I went to my boyfriends cousins house for a family party, his families parties are always so much fun. I actually wore a slightly comfier, more tragic pair of shoes, I realise this now and decided not to include them this time! I also wore this beautiful fluffy clutch bag my boyfriend got me for Christmas. As you may know, I love anything fluffy.

I decided to do something different with my hair and scraped it all back loosely after straightening it and just sprayed a load of hairspray on it. It kind of looks slick as it is behind my shoulders and out of the way, but it is also kind of scruffy. I didn't think I would like it but I actually think I really do, it may be my new fix for bad hair days! I also tried editing my photos a little differently, what do you think?

My Style Icon - My Grandma

After sadly loosing my Grandma last September, me and my sister Amy went through all of the photos we could find of her and scanned them in to make a slide show for all of her friends and family. We came across so many little gems which made me realise that I wanted to do a little tribute myself. With having a fashion blog and genuinely believing my Grandma was one of the most stylish ladies in the entire world, I knew I wanted to do a post about her. I have been thinking about doing this for a long time, but it was quite hard for me to do as I have still honestly not come to terms with the fact I will never see her again. I hope she doesn't mind me sharing these images on the web for the world to see, she does look amazing though. When I was selecting the images to feature, I found myself picking out quite a few sentimental ones too that just had to go in, like a couple where she is with me, and a few really lovely ones with my Grandad (you will know which ones I mean when you see them)

I have always looked up to my grandma for fashion inspiration and advice, as far back as I can remember I was always trying on her clothes, shoes and lipstick - not forgetting her pearls and clip on earrings too! She was a fabulous lady inside and out and I hope you can see that looking through these photos.

Pastel Pink and Powder Blue


|| Coat - French Connection || Blouse - Zara || Jeans - vintage Gap via charity shop ||
|| Socks - Topshop || Shoes - Topshop || Bag - French Connection ||

So this is my first post of 2015! It feels so so weird to call it that, I still feel like I belong in 2010, most likely because it was my last year of school and I wrote it on the top of a page about 2748 times a day. You may have seen this coat in another post here. I actually told myself to only wear it on special occasions, or just not too often as it is such a lovely light colour and so lovely and soft. I really don't want to get it dirty, but I can't help but wear it! I have always loved pastel pink and powder blue together, especially when paired with nudes, I just think it is such a fresh colour combination. I decided to finish the outfit off with these super cute school like shoes (I'm obviously stuck in 2010) and a good old sample sale bag which I think looks lovely against the colour of my coat.

The photos that didn't make it in 2014


2014 was mainly a 'stand in front of a tripod and smile by yourself' kind of year, however, towards the end I did have my photos taken by an actual person which meant that there were a lot more silly photos. Like most bloggers, I only ever really put the good photos up, which is no fun really is it? With this in mind, I thought it would be quite a good idea to put something fun together to commemorate this year of blogging. I had to do quite a bit of digging, and don't really have a good variation as I have recently purchased a new memory card with my old one braking, and I did delete most of the bad ones! It could have been so much funnier (I'll make sure I keep them all together for next year) I have gathered all of the silly faces I pulled when it got awkward and I didn't know what to do, the ones where I am mid speech and awful ones in general. There do happen to be a few of me running with my cat trying to make the self timer that I just had to keep - how lame! There are also a few that aren't associated with blogging but are just hilarious of me in general that I just threw in for lols.

Hope you enjoy! And have a wonderful New Year!
