This playsuit was such a bargain impulse buy but I have ended up getting so much wear out of it so I’m glad I snapped it up. It was really cheap at only £14.99 and has lovely lace detailing which makes it more dressy than a standard black playsuit. It has a cross over plunge style front and a lace panel across the middle, as well as an all over lace low cut back. As you know from previous posts backless tops, dresses and playsuits are my absolute faaaave.

On a sunny day I am one of those typical Brits that gets super excited at the first sign of sun and out come all the summer clothes. I was off out for lunch with my sisters and was feeling in a summery mood so decided to just go for it and wear a dress. You will have to excuse the lack of tan but at this time of year not much I can do, roll on holidays! The weather has taken a turn for the worse today but hopefully it isn’t the last we see of the sun and can start transitioning into our summer wardrobe and put our winter coats to rest for a good few months.

This fluffy hem dress is one of my favourite buys of 2014. I first spotted it about 6 months ago at the Topshop Autumn/Winter ’14 press day and then the wait began until it hit the stores. As soon as it landed in the new in section online I snapped it up and I am borderline obsessed with it. Fluff was everywhere this season and still is quite prominent on the high street. It gives everything a super girly and almost fairytale twist that is undeniably adorable.

High necks are my new favourite thing. They look so nice on with a pair of jeans and heels. I had sandals on here as these pictures were taken while I was on holiday. I have a few left to postt hat I recently found but forgot to blog. I don’t want them to go to waste so I am going to go ahead and post them anyway even though it was last month. It doesn’t matter though as this is an outfit I would wear here too but I would substitute the sandals for a pair of courts. I got this top a while back and have worn it so much. I love the high neckline and racer cut at the front and back, it also has a low V cut out section on the back at the top which adds a little something extra to the top.

The Carrie Shoes

Aren’t these shoes simply uh-mazing!? I cannot even begin to explain how in love with them I am. As soon as I saw them I instantly thought of Carrie Bradshaw (which is actually also what they are called online) and being a huge fan of Sex And The City/Carrie Bradshaw/heels/pink/fluffy…..I could go on and on but you get the idea. Marabou feather trim is going to be huge this season and I have already seen so many amazing bits that will be rehomed in my immaculately organised wardrobe. The heels also come in red and black if pink isn’t really your colour. I took these pics before running out the house for my friend Shakila’s birthday night out so I didn’t have time to zoom in on the shoes but I grabbed a couple of shots on my phone which you can see (above and below).

In The Style recently did a collaboration with Geordie Shore babe Charlotte, her collection is called Nostalgia. I was sent a couple of pieces from the range to wear to the launch (which was amazing FYI) and I absolutely love it! One of the pieces was this gorgeous checked long line shirt that I styled up with some leather trousers for a chic sophisticated look. On the site this shirt is worn as a dress and due to it’s length it can be worn that way which is a plus as you get a shirt and dress in one. The back is also dipped so it is longer than the front of the shirt too which is a nice touch. The material is really good quality and quite thick which makes it hang so nicely. There is a button 3/4 of the way up so you can roll the sleeves up and button them into place if you don’t fancy long sleeves.

This is a purchase from Topshop 2 years ago. I still wear it loads, it’s so good for holidays because it’s really comfy and not too hot. A Playsuit is always a great holiday buy because it’s a whole outfit and doesn’t take up too much space in your suitcase either which is always a bonus if you like to pack as much as I do.

As the saying goes….On Wednesdays we wear pink! A couple of weeks ago it was my sister’s birthday and I booked the day off work to spend it with her and my new gorgeous baby niece. It was one of the first nice sunny days we’d had and as I was feeling chirpy I decided to wear this bright pink jacket to match the weather and my mood. As it was a Wednesday it only felt right.
