Fashion By The Numbers

£50 overdrawn – bailed myself out… £60 overdrawn – #OopsIDidItAgain tumblr_mco2wr7vth1qgiq62o1_500

Oh January – you’re killin’ us! How are we supposed to enjoy the sales and fund our ‘New Year, New Me’ goals when our empty piggy banks are still crying from our Christmas splurges?

The key is in the basics of it all. Why do we always wear the same things when there is a tonne of cute clothing at the back of the wardrobe?

Because we haven’t cracked the idea of versatility. Sigh.

Why do we buy 2 different tops when you could buy 1 that can be styled in 2 different ways, saving you half the cost?

This  February (yes, January is a total write off for me…) I’m going back to the basic mechanics of my wardrobe. Staples. Individual pieces that can be switched up. Versatile shopping! 

Maybe I’ll buy another yellow rain coat, or another pair of stripy trousers. That’s cool wth me, I need the odd random piece in that closet o’mine. However, the fact of the matter is; maybe I could buy something to go with the trousers, which can also be easily worn with other pieces in my wardrobe?

So lets get the basics down to a tee. That way, when we’re crying into our penniless piggy banks, we can still be smoking’ hot without any effort, switching between the most basic of styles for the biggest of impacts.

With this framework in mind, here are a few of my favourite staples right now on Boohoo.com that won’t break the bank and definitely give effortless style…

1.

The midi dress – the apple to the pie. Get the midi! I love that a midi dress can look cool with trainers or boots, being worn effortlessly to work or out in town. I need this bad boy.

2.

This beautiful top is so adaptable for easy style, day or night. Wear it to work with a pair of trousers or on a Saturday with a pair of jeans! Adaptable? Yes?!

3.

I’ve had a break through recently with the bodysuit hype. They can literally change a pair of trousers or a skirt – they are one of the biggest staples you can get right now for your stapler. And what could be more perfect than a turtleneck bodysuit?! Smart casual everyday.

4.

Swishy Swing dresses are cute with trainers and flats and are easily styled with a statement jacket or blazer. Effortless, again. Yet so versatile!

5.

T-shirt dresses have always been so cute. Again, change what you have on your feet and your choice of jacket for completely different styles. One dress, multiple styles.

Happy New Year – it’s 2017!?

It is officially 1st January 2017, an entirely new year. I am so excited to start 2017 with a fresh mindset and a new tonne of goals that I want to see fulfilled by this time next year! Bring it on!

A new year shouldn’t be about a ‘new’ you. Why? Because you are already a brilliant person as you are, so why would you want to be any different? Instead, it should be a blank page. Not a blank page ready for lots of big changes, but instead, a blank page for you to fill with all your hopes and dreams and aspirations for the year ahead!

Aim to live life to the fullest, and you’ll see positive changes in yourself without aiming to directly make them. Keep a positive attitude about the year ahead, because you can only go up from here.

I hope you all celebrated the new year in style and are excited for what 2017 has to bring! Happy 2017 everybody!

Bow-tiful Christmas

It is Christmas Eve, finally! A day of preparation for tomorrow, full of last minute dashes to the shop and wrapping presents. But the real excitement kicks in around about now… because it is Christmas Day in a matter of hours!

This year I am styling Christmas with cheesy accessories, Christmas jumpers & dresses – cheese is acceptable at Christmas in all forms remember…

These adorable bows made a grand appearance at work yesterday alongside my super cute Christmas dress and will definitely be whipped out tomorrow. I absolutely loved going to work as a little festive elf and am super chuffed that I have now broken up until January!
My little Gilbert also enjoys his bows this Christmas! He is definitely in the Christmas Spirit and ready to party.

And on that note, it’s time to settle down into my lovely cosy bedroom in these adorable Christmas PJ’s… 

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas Day and enjoy the quality time with your loved ones! Happy Christmas you beauties!

Sole Sisters

Oh my. It is super chilly and our feet are the only things we want on show right now because the rest of us is covered up in scarfs, coats and hats – so let’s slay with our sole sisters…here’s my two faves this season.

My go-to booties this season are these cute little ankle boots from Boohoo – I adore the gold details, which are perfect for the crossover between Autumn/Winter styling. Plus they’re super comfy. Oh I would walk 5,000 miles… in these boots.And my second favourites this season are these bad boys. Talk about chunky monkey slaying vibes. They are technically a sandal but who said sandals couldn’t come out in the cold? Nobody.

 I love the details on the ankle of these beauties, giving a little bit of a boot illusion even if we’re classing them as a heeled sandal… they look super cute with skinny jeans, velvet disco pants and even a skater dress. Talk about versatility.

Let me know what your feet are slaying this season! And if you like my faves, here’s the deets:

Chop Chop…

I have a little something to tell you all… I went for it. I took a big step, and went for it. What did I go for? Well.

I started the day as a devil dog… note the length of my hair (Hint Hint)

Then I went on my travels and… Chop chop! All gone!Today I had a super chop of my long long locks, and damn it feels good. My hair had grown to the middle of my back and had recently been bringing me down (both physically and mentally!)
With so much thick hair, I’ve really been struggling to keep it styled. So I decided, lets chop it off.

I hope you like it!
