Primark OOTD

What I wore: Primark Tee, HiddenFashion Boots

Mix and matching is fun to do, that's sort of what styling is all about. I'm wearing a mixture of old clothes today but I managed to match my shorts and my bag together with stripe print. Stripes are simplistic, even though they come in various widths and colours. They add so much to a basic outfit yet they look effortless and stylish. I need to own more stripes; note to self..

Go summer cool in ASOS  stripe top, a light take on the trend with cute minimal detailing to lighten up a basic outfit. If you haven't yet finished your bikini shopping (you're not the only one) then this V stripe Bikini is perfect for a simple print that will match any shorts! If being a bit more adventurous is more your thing then these trousers are too cute to miss, see here. I would love to have these but my short legs would drown in them..

OOTD Sheinside, Hidden Fashion and H&M

You can never go wrong with basics. Today's OOTD is just that, keeping it simple while accidentally sporting the monochrome trend (this always happens). With the good weather now, it's legs out and slip into some cute sandals. The only bad thing when summer arrives is the pale complexion.. I'm not one for tanning so the vampire effect will do until the sun rays kick in. 

Simplicity really is key to any good outfit, never over do it unless you want to give someone a headache. Missguided have some fabulous shorts in at the moment (here) trending the 'skorts' but with a twist - they're not your usual style but they are smart and cute! If you love basics - like me, you sometimes crave a little more. Well look no further, New Look have the most amazing top ever and I really do need it in my life. Check it out here and be prepared to adore it.

Ripped Jeans

What I'm wearing- Jeans: HiddenFashion

Jeans are an all over year must have. They're versatile and change throughout the seasons to match the trends and weather. Ripped jeans, especially mom jeans and boyfriend jeans are a big trend alert, allowing you to wear your favorite staple while keeping you cool and looking stylish. I have been hunting for some stylish ripped jeans that are the perfect tone and shape. Today, I am wearing Hidden Fashion and they're great value for money.

ASOS do some pretty cool ripped denim's, some more subtle than others which is nice. If you're looking for a less of a rip and more of a 'I grazed my knee' then you need to head to TopShop. For a variety of brands at affordable and a more pricey range then have a good choice of colours. One of m favorites from the website is BooHoo's version!

Are you digging ripped jeans or are you more into Mom jeans? x

Fruit prints are BIG

Our big summer is starting (finally right?). This weekend it's going to be the hottest it's ever been and that means one thing here in the UK, and that's flesh on show. I've gone for a nude feel in today's out fit, the printed smart shorts are one of my favorite purchase this month. You can't see too much from the photo's but they're fruit print. Fruit print is such a big hit this summer, I love it! Let's get the healthy sign out there already..

I'm also wearing my Fossil watch and an old TopShop floral clutch bag ( my favorite accessories).
What accessories can you never let go of? x

Nerdy OOTD with SheInside Forever21 H&M and River Island

We all have a nerdy side. FACT.
If it be Fiction books or Star wars, we all have something we adore that might be considered a bit childish or somewhat. Well mine is Harry Potter (and Paramore). Even when I'm 40 and old, I know that I will always watch and read and adore Harry Potter. Little fact about me is that when the last book came out I got it the day of release and I didn't leave the house until I read every page and I told all my friends to not call ..haha!
When I saw this top on SheInside I just crumbled, I needed it. So here it is, in all it's glory. I kind of went for the black and white theme today, unintentionally of course. As the weather isn't picking up I have gone for a grunge boho look.

Forever 21 haul

*Dip Dye vest - forever21 *Jeans- forever21 *Cardigan NastyGal

I went for a bit of a lonely drive this weekend. It was super nice, where I live there is a country lane area and I stopped off close by to take some snaps. I wanted to try an outdoor post that wasn't outside my house. Because I don't have a garden *insert super sad face*. It was really calming, watching the boats go by as people sailed them, there is definitely something soothing about water. 

I went for a boho / country look today, I have fallen utterly in love with this tie dye top, it is a perfect summer essential and I know I will be getting a lot of wear out of this. What is your summer fave this year? x

Forever 21 Zebra Tee and Sheinside White Boho Shorts

The weather isn't really picking up, but that doesn't mean I can't dress for the summer! I practically wear summer clothes throughout the entire year anyway (I should be a Cali girl, I swear). One thing I can always rely on for a quick style fix is Forever 21. I swear they are just perfect..
I was so glad when we got a Forever21 in Birmingham, I think the UK should really invest in more American / International stores. To mix it all up a little. Today's OOTD is a Zebra Print Tee from Forever21 and it's so soft and light weight. To bring a boost of brightness I present you my new favorite shorts.. these are from SheInside and they're just the cutest shorts ever. I was a bit apprehensive at first when getting white shorts but I think it was a smart move. You sort of need a rainbow of shorts in your wardrobe.

I've added a beauty instalment today as I want to show you some key products I have been using that I adore..
Kate Moss' LipStick collection is so cute, I love this pink rose colour. I use it very lightly to boost my lip colour and it sort of matches my hair so that is an added bonus!!
In the center I have an eyebrow pencil. I have been using normal eyebrow pencil for years but lately I just wasn't impressed. I was searching online and saw this new pencil and it comes with a highlighter and I really like this. It's gentle compared to the pencil and the nib of the brow colour is soft.

We all know that looking after your skin is super important so I decided to give sun lotion a go for my facial regime. I am impressed with the results I must say, although sun lotion is slightly oily I don't think it effects my type of skin and sun lotion is suppose to be good for anti-ageing. So in ten years time, I will let you know the outcome ;)
