Autumn Look book 1

So the weather is just starting to turn autumnal so I thought I’d do a transitional look book first featuring 4 outfits that are easy to wear in this warmer autumn weather x

Outfit one

Black grey and white check skirt charity shop, boots Dr martens,top boohoo, tights primark. I love fishnet tights in this weather because they aren’t too warm and they add a bit of edge to your outfit.

Outfit two

Tapestry boots charity shop, brown dress everything Β£5 , cardigan charity shop. I love the autumn tones in this look this dress sees me right through autumn and winter paired with different accessories.

Outfit three

Slip dress charity shop,cardigan charity shop,boots charity shop,hat Charity shop. A sleeveless slip dress with a big chunky knit cardigan is such an easy outfit to recreate and keeps you just warm enough whilst it’s still sunny outside.

Outfit four

Dress cardigan and boots charity shop. I will be wearing this all through autumn and winter I’ll just add thicker tights and a nice jewel toned coat to change it up πŸ™‚

What’s in my bag updated x

Two posts in one day? I’m spoilling you I know ;p x I’ve seen alot of different what’s in my bag editions on YouTube and wordpress and thought as I was changing my handbag over why not do one myself so here you go πŸ™‚ x

On the left is all the crap I pulled out of my summer handbag that I brought for 99p from barnardos it’s originally from next and has served me well this summer πŸ™‚ BUT as it’s September aka start of autumn I’m going back to my faithful brown handbag that I’ve had for 2 years now I brought it in Monaco and it’s still my favourite handbag!! 

Purse is still my radley one that I was given as a Christmas present I do want to invest in a new purse but honestly I hate trying to find a decent purse! Shopping bags-yeps when they brought in the 5p carrier bag charge I thought I’d save myself money and buy some reusable bags and I do actually carry these everywhere with me which is SO handy!! The white one and the black one were Β£1 each the white one is primark and the black one is from b&m the pink one I got free with a superdrug purchase and the yellow one my nan gave me years ago. I then have house keys with various keyrings including a light,car keys,headphones,glasses case and my lucky charms.

Pencil case with coloured pencils pens ruler sharpener and eraser. Current read About a boy,Hogwarts notebook,wreck this journal,small notebook ideal for my meetings and training notes and my diary.

Cosmetics bag- tissues,sewing kit,face cream, mouthwash, perfume,hand sanitizer,immodium #ibslife, Ibuprofen,hair slides hair clip& bobbles,tampon&pad #irregularperiods always got to be prepared,comb,mirror,earrings,safety pins,assorted plasters,lip balm,lipstick and cotton buds.
That’s it all in my bag and ready for work tomorrow 😦 x

Top 5 summer outfits β˜€β˜€

People, it’s the last day of august and that for me always signals the end of summer *sigh* no I couldn’t tell you why I think it’s because from September I go into my hibernation autumn/winter mode!!

Anyways I digress, I thought that I’d show you my most worn outfits of the summer I was actually really confident with my body this summer I got my legs out loads and purchased….4 pairs of shorts!!! I never wear shorts!!! But this summer that’s pretty much all I’ve worn!!

I’ve also done things a bit differently I decided to pick the ‘outtake’ photos the ones where my hairs not quite falling right or I’m pulling a weird pose or the clothes are bunched in weird places because Ive been reflecting on social media and the image people put across and honestly it’s helped my headspace alot to rember that people only put the snapshots they want you to see,life is so heavily edited these days you need to take a step back,breathe and re-evaluate what’s important to you and look after your mental health aswell as your physical health something I had been neglecting for a while, so yes here are my unedited unscripted pictures πŸ™‚

Outfit 1

These trousers! I love these and can’t wait to style them for autumn and winter too πŸ™‚ I paired hem with a simple t-shirt either black white or grey to compliment the colours in the trousers then wore my converse or white canvas trainers and added my denim jacket on colder days πŸ™‚

Outfit two

First pair of short these black ones from Tesco are so comfy!! I will again be wearing these in autumn and winter with tights πŸ™‚ I’ve paired them alot with this cute yellow white&grey highneck top that I brought in a chairty shop, because of the colours in the top I’ve been able to wear my white trainers, white sandals and gold sandals to switch up the look.

Outfit three

Feeling like I’m in top gun!! These shorts were a real charity shop bargain they fit beautifully and they go with so many colours!! My favourite to wear has been this dark green shirt I brought a few years ago in a charity shop. To dress the look up I added my nude wedge sandals from primark but dressed the look down with trainers or flip flops.

Outfit four

These green shirts are from boohoo and they are the shortest shorts I own they are so cute the paperback waist detail is just super nice and flatters your figure, I’ve paired them alot with this white shirt I brought in a charity shop I then added a splash of colour to this outfit with my leopard print wedge sandals

Outfit five

This dress is just a really fun dress to throw on when you want to look like you made an effort! It’s so comfy it flows really nice so it’s good for bloated days and the print does all the talking!! Again I’ve been pairing it with my trusty denim jacket for colder days and added my faithful ASOS sandles to complete this look.

Summer OOTD a Collaboration with Being Chantal

Well, you have to have interested in fashion of course. I was thinking perhaps an ootd? Summer or winter. (Depending on your country) I’m feeling a bit spicy, like blowing up my creativeness. SO, if you are up for it email me: beingchantal@gmail.com PS: This is for blogpost or youtube πŸ™‚

via FASHION COLLAB ANYONE? β€” Being Chantal

This beautiful girl is Chantal and I have been following her blog and YouTube for a long long time! Chantal posts on WordPress and YouTube about a variety of things such as outfit of the day posts, look books, self help posts and cooking posts (all of which make me hungry as they look super yummy!) so when Chantal was looking for people to do collaborations with i knew i had to jump at this chance!! So today I will be showing you guys how i style jeans for summer and head on over to BEINGCHANTAL (link at the top of page) to see how she will be styling leggings for summer which i am very much looking forward to as i have various pairs of leggings and no idea how to style them so please please please check her blog out!! Edit: Chantal’s post will be live tomorrow πŸ™‚ ❀

 

Here is how i am styling jeans this summer i hope you enjoy πŸ™‚

x

Pair with flowy fabrics

If i am wearing “heavy” material on the bottom such as denim I will pair them with a nice chiffon/silk/cotton top that’s more breathable and helps keep you cool. I have paired this high-waisted pair from primark with a lace bralet also from primark and this cute sun patterned chiffon wrap blouse from Marie curie cancer research charity shop.

Adjust the length

I like to roll my jeans up in the summer to create different lengths not only does this create a different style but it also helps to keep you cool!!!

Accessories!!

Think about what accessories and footwear to pair your jeans with to help keep you cool and finish off the look, I added my black mule sandals that i got for 99p from barnardos (originally office) my floppy black sunhat black velvet choker and some primark sunglasses.

Come back tomorrow for TWO posts
