Every girl needs a boyfriend shirt in their catalogue of clothes. It is an essential staple item and something you can throw on and really never go wrong with. They are comfortable and stylish which makes for a winning combo in my books. This shirt is from the new Gant Rugged collection and it’s gone straight to the top of my favourites out of the many many striped shirts I own. It’s a really breathable material and the oversized fit gives you a cool boyish edge which I have given a girly twist here by wearing a lacey peach harness bra underneath.

Not to be totally British or anything but what is with this weather at the moment?! It’s so erratic which makes dressing to leave the house a bit of a guessing game. We have had a few pleasant days and digging out the sunnies has made me extremely happy and oh so ready for summer to get it’s butt here pronto. From someone that lived in Greece for 6 years and wearing them every day without fail I sure have missed them. I treated myself recently to this rose tinted pair of beauties from Ray Ban (via ASOS).

Lounge Sundays

I recently got this really cute underwear set from the lovely people over at Lounge Underwear. It is the most comfortable set I have owned in forever! They are available in 3 colours; white, black and grey. You can also get the bottoms in either briefs or thong style. They are the perfect sets to laze about in on a Sunday spent in bed catching up on the week’s TV. I already mentioned it but they really are super comfy which makes them all the more appealing for lounging around in, hence the name. I will definitely be getting the other two sets as they are perfect for everyday wear and you can then mix and match the colours up too.
If you can’t fork out for the not so ‘purse friendly’ CK sets then these are the best alternative out there. The bra doesn’t have a clasp and just goes over your head, it has adjustable straps you can lengthen or shorten. The band is a soft stretch material which means it doesn’t dig in. The sizes come in S, M & L and the site gives you a helpful size chart to pick the best suited size for you. They also have a live chat available should you need any questions answered. Click read more to see more pics of the gorgeous set.

You will have probably seen harness bralets all over the high street lately. I have been looking for some cute ones but they seem to be constantly sold out! I did manage to nab this one though and it’s a winner. It’s a bit more 50 shades than most of the more simple versions I’ve seen around but sometimes you’ve just got to bring your inner prowess out. It is actually shown online as more of a top to wear with skirts, high waist jeans etc but unless I have abs like Jenna Dewan-Tatum in the next two months then that won’t be happening!

Sorry for being AWOL on my blog for the last week and also my social channels too. I had a trip away with the girls and literally had not a spare minute to upload a single thing let alone get blog photos done and write one up. Back to usual service now though! Sometimes such simple pieces work so well together! I got this cute as a button super soft jumper (with hidden little side pockets) recently from River Island. It’s now in the sale FYI so get clicking! I also snapped up the deep maroon version too and they are just too snuggly. I paired the cosy knit up with a pair of sassy faux leather trousers for a tough rock edge to the look.

Lace ups are everywhere right now and I have the standard bodysuits with long and short sleeves but then I spotted this cute lace up sweater and loved how the trend had gone into winter territory. I initially wanted the rust version but it sold out and much to my disappointment never got restocked *sob*. I did manage to get my hands on this gorgeous go-with-everything cream version though so all was not lost.

Summer is just around the corner and before you know it you will be packing for your holiday thinking why on earth did I eat sooooo much this winter? We’ve all been there, myself included. Last winter I let go a bit too much and had such a hard slog ahead to work it all off again in time for the first of my many trips away. I vowed not to do it this year and to keep things under control. I knew I needed a plan but having never set foot in a gym in my entire life it was a daunting prospect! Luckily Boohoo are on hand to take the stress out of what to wear and how to look half decent when you’re red in the face and sweating buckets (because no matter what you’re doing we still want to look and feel good don’t we girls). It’s one less thing to worry about which is always a bonus in my books! They have an amazing new Fit range and have covered all bases on all things active wear. Click read more to see my top tips on how to keep fit and be beach body ready.

The rain held up for all of 5 minutes on Saturday so I took full advantage and ran out to snap some pics while I had the (rare) chance. Being able to only take blog pictures on weekends means it can be so difficult when the weather isn’t up to scratch, if I miss one weekend of shooting outfits then I have no content for the week that follows which drives me utterly insane. I wish I could blog full time as I would love nothing more than to find amazing locations and hire a photographer for the day and get so many outfits shot. However, having a full time job as well as a busy lifestyle means that fitting the blog (which is as much of a full time job on its own) in with everything is sometimes very hard to do. I try my best to not let it go too long inbetween posts but the reality is it’s hard. Taking photos yourself on your driveway with a tripod, timer and remote is not the easiest especially when it’s rains non stop all day and the wind doesn’t let up (it does provide many pics of ‘blog fails’ though). Trying to get good pictures is beyond difficult so I do very much appareciate all of you that read the blog despite all this.
