Style Challenge 2.0 Days 1-7

Edit: I realise this is a day later than promised I thought I had scheduled the post turns out I had only saved it as a draft and I was out late celebrating my brothers birthday!

Style Challenge 2.0 If you aren’t up to date on what it is that I am doing here is my blog post showing all the pin prompts for this challenge Style Challenge 2.0

So let’s see what 8 prompts I chose to kick start this Style challenge!

Day One: Top it off with a hat

SC Day 1

15.04.18 Sunday I had a pretty lazy day, it was fairly warm so I decided to walk to the shops get the Sunday papers and sit in my garden with a cup of tea and read for a while. I decided to get out the big sunhat (yes it is ridiculously over-sized but I am extra and I didn’t want to get sunstroke!) Hat Charity Shop, Skirt Charity Shop T-shirt Primark Wedges Charity shop.

Day Two: Wear a shirt under your dress

SC Day 216.04.18 Monday: Again the weather was nice I went for tea and cake with my friend Becky and then we went to a shopping outlet near my house and I treated myself to a gorgeous new Radley Bag 🙂  The shirt and Wedges are from Primark and the dress is from a charity shop.

Day Three: Mix up your prints

SC Day 317.04.18 Tuesday it was overcast and SO windy here today so I decided to wear something nice and warm! I am still a novice at mixing my prints so I had a look on pinterest for some inspiration and advice and I think I managed to pull this look together well. Trousers are from warehouse and the shirt is from a charity shop. I added my topshop wedge sandals to tie in the colours and bring the look together. I actually LOVE how this turned out!

Day Four: Wear an item you haven’t worn in 6 months

SC Day 418.04.18 Wednesday boy was it HOT!! I sat in the garden reading and may have got sunburnt OOPS! I got carried away reading and didn’t realise how long I had sat outside without suncream on! I dug out all my summery clothes and found this gorgeous floral tea dress that I haven’t worn in ages. Dress is warehouse wedges are primark. I LOVE this dress I am going to feature it in a future blog post styling it for all 4 seasons.

Day Five: Add stylish sneakers to a dress

SC Day 519.04.18 Thursday again another lovely sunny day I met Sara and her little girl for tea and cake at dobbies and then I walked to the library to exchange my books 🙂 I wore my leopard dress that I got from H&M my Next denim jacket and my high top converse. This was an easy one to do as this is already a go to look for me I LOVE this dress so much it is so easy to wear and style.

Day Six: Add a little or a lot of Leopard Print

SC Day 620.04.18 Friday. I love this shirt I brought it on my recent charity shop trip with mum and it has become a wardrobe favourite already!! As it is still warm I paired it with these shorts I brought from boohoo and wore to death last summer and my trusty gold primark sandals.

Day Seven: Transform your dress into a skirt with a top

SC Day 721.04.18 Saturday. Another glorious sunny day!! I paired this cute daisy print dress that I brought in a charity shop with my faithful black primark shirt that I tied up at the ends and my trusty white ASOS sandals for a fun little look. I actually quite like this look and may wear it more!

So that’s it my first week complete! Which one was your favourite? I think Day 3 is my favourite which is funny as it was the one most out of my comfort zone! Really excited to start styling some more pieces for this week 😀

Style Challenge 2.0

I am in a rut. In my life, in fashion, in routine everything. I have been looking through my old posts for some inspiration and for a fun post that I want to do a little later on. I stumbled upon a post that I did 3 years ago that was a 61 day style challenge. I didn’t end up finishing all 61 days which does make me very sad. I am now thinking what better way to get out of a rut than with some style pin prompts!! SO I am going to do the 61 day challenge again and I WILL complete it this time!! If you guys want to join in please feel free to I would love to see how you guys interpret the prompts I am going to create a Hashtag so that I can keep all my images together and if you copy any of the outfits please use the hashtag so I can see your outfits too! #61daystylechallenge2018

This Challenge will be starting on Sunday and I am going to post a picture everyday for the following 61 days 🙂

So here are the pin prompts that I will be using to create my outfits for 61 days 😀

Spring Look-Book 2018

Spring is here  taking its time to show up, It has been cold, snowing, windy and miserable. I am however still crossing my fingers that Spring will show her face soon and so with that in mind I decided to put together 3 different looks for Spring inspired by my Spring Mood board if you haven’t read that post yet I will link it at the bottom of this post.

Look One The Mac

Spring LookBook 1

I brought this Mac in a Charity shop a few years back and I roll it out every spring it cost me £1 it fits beautifully and is origionally a F&F coat, I paired it with my bargain Levi Jeans some Red Sandals that I also brought for £1 at a charity shop and a cream blouse from Primark.

Look Two Pastels

Spring LookBook 2

I LOVE this top! I brought it a year ago I think in a charity shop it’s originally from Zara and it is so SOFT! I thought the colours and the design were perfect for spring. I paired it with these khaki trousers from next and my faithful Primark nude wedges.

Look Three

SpringLookBook3

My Final Spring look is this cute Yellow blouse that I brought from Primark last year My Primark Dungaree Dress and my trusty white topshop wedge sandals. I love this look the most.

Which is your favourite look?

Here is my Spring Mood-Board post to give you some insight into my inspiration for these looks. Spring Moodboard

Spring Moodboard

I just love a new season, especially spring, the days get longer the weather (hopefully) gets warmer and for me the fashion is the most exciting part! Now don’t get me wrong for me my favourite season to dress for is Autumn in fact if I had to put them in order I would Say Autumn First then Spring then Summer and Winter last. So knowing that I can start to peel away a few of the layers and start to introduce more colour into my wardrobe does excite me! I have a spring look book going up on the 29th of this month and thought that ahead of that I would share with you my spring mood board to show you what sort of things I am looking forward to wearing this spring.

IMG_20180322_191132_2

I love creating mood boards and scrap booking I find it very calming and relaxing pouring my creativity into mood boards and vision boards.

Spring 1

So the first thing I am looking forward to wearing this spring is the Red&Pink combination. I recently introduced Red into my wardrobe after avoiding it for no particular reason, I now really like styling red into my outfits and have enjoyed seeing the red&pink clash on the runway and through pinterest posts. Pink isn’t a colour that I am confident in wearing in fact I don’t actually think that I own anything pink anymore! So i will be investing in some pink pieces to create a pink&red clash outfit.

Spring 2

The Mac. For me the Mac is symbolic of spring, like its the perfect spring coat. I picked one up in a charity shop a few years ago for £1 and it is the perfect piece that i bring out every spring. I like to pair mine with a neutral pallete coloured dress knee high socks and boots, I am however going to style it with jeans/trousers this year.

Spring 3

Lastly again something that comes out every spring is pastels. I love pastel colours I think that pastels are a perfect way to introduce a little bit of colour into your outfits if you don’t feel brave enough to go for bold jewel toned clothing. I also LOVE pastel accessories in spring I have a gorgeous lilac clutch that I will be bringing out this season and can’t wait to add some new pastel pieces to my wardrobe.

So that is what I am leaning towards for this season. What pieces are you looking out for this season? Are any of you trialing new looks or styles this season?

Graphic Tee 3 ways

I own a lot of graphic tees, I think that they are so versatile and can be styled in so many different ways. They can be dressed up or down and worn with pretty much anything. I do also like a simple plain tee but I think a printed tee just adds a little something extra to an outfit. So today I am sharing three different looks with the same graphic tee.

Look one: Jeans Blazer and Heels Perfect for a night out.

IMG_20180315_091538~2

Jeans: Next outlet £7 T-shirt Lootvault Heels: Charity shop Blazer:Charity shop

I tucked the tee into my jeans and added a blazer and heels to dress up this outfit.

Look Two: Printed trousers

IMG_20180315_091816~2

Trousers:Next outlet Shoes: Dr Martens

I love the clash of the printed tee with the printed trousers I think as the polka dots are small it doesn’t look too overpowering together!

Look Three: My favourite look: Skirt Tights Pleather Jacket and Boots

IMG_20180315_092029~2

This is my go to way to style my printed tees. Skirt:Charity shop Tights:Primark Jacket:Ebay Boots:Dr Martens

I actually got to audition for a part in skins and got to the final 10 🙂 I am also one of those people that liked the different generations of skins I would say though that generation 1 was my favourite then 2 then 3!! So my favourite Character from the entire series is Effy. She is Badass and sexy yet deep down shes vunerable and lost and just I love her she is my ‘alternative’ spirit animal and I was so excited to create a look in homage to her 🙂

The Statement Trouser

This year I made an unofficial goal with myself to wear less denim. I feel that denim is definitely my go to and there is nothing wrong with that, it is a classic staple and works for every season and pretty much every occasion, however I feel that because it is such a fail safe it has lulled me into a style rut.

I decided to start out my no denim outfits by investing in some statement trousers. Statement trousers are so versatile they can be dressed up or down and worked into so many different outfits for every occasion. They are also comfy, stylish and come in an array of colours cuts lengths and materials.

IMG_20180125_094627~3

This pair are from warehouse, they were in the sale at £10 they then had an extra 20% off sale so they ended up being £8. The colour drew me in I am loving green right now I always associate green with winter, does anyone else do that? associate different colours with different seasons, I always feel a bit odd if i wear a particular colour out of its assigned season! I also really liked the subtle but statement pattern on this pair, I love floral print but hadn’t really thought about it for winter I was however looking ahead and thinking how I can style these into spring and summer. I also liked that the pattern offered 3 different colour choices to match with the trousers.

IMG_20180125_094459~2

I went for a smart casual look today but this could easily be dressed down by adding some white converse and a slogan tee or more dressed up with some statement earrings a cute up do and a sheer/lacy blouse.

What pieces are you wanting to incorporate into your wardrobe this year? What is a fashion item your afraid to wear and why? What other items should I be adding to my wardrobe this year?
