SUMMER DAYS

Tuesday, 22 July 2014





Todays look is very casual, I always struggle on deciding what to wear on such hot days when going out. Today me and my family visited Chatsworth estate (which I highly recommend anyone to go and visit on a sunny day, its where parts of the film 'The Duchess' were filmed.) I wanted a to create an outfit that was weather appropriate and easy to move in the outdoors and gardens. After much debating I went for casual denim shorts, paired with a linen shirt.
Recently, I have seen numerous 'celebrities' wearing casual shirts; patterned and plain, however their outfits still look very well thought out. So I recreated my own version, as you can never go wrong with a plain white linen shirt. This look is perfect for these hot summer days.

PALM TREE PRINT

Monday, 21 July 2014



So today's ootd is a Missguided palm tree print which I purchased recently online. I love this a-line printed dress as it can be quite easily dressed up or down, I wore this outfit to an evening meal and paired it with a long line blazer/cardigan. I find that Missguided is great for affordable (student priced) fashion with many clothing items matching high street designs for a fraction of the price. The fabric of the dress is a type of neoprene fabric which is great for those who are unable to iron (including myself) the print also gives off a summery Miami inspired vibe. At an affordable price of £24.99 you can't seem to go wrong, to dress this outfit up some more i would pair with kitten heels and statement clutch. Sarah X

PARTY PANTS




 Its been my mums 60th birthday this weekend so of course we had a party. I wanted to wear something I wouldn't usually wear, however still look smart (bright colours and culottes.)

LEATHER IS STILL ALIVE

Wednesday, 16 July 2014



 Leather last season was a huge hit, however I feel it should never be dismissed, pulling off leather is a difficult thing to do. Pleather (plastic leather) never really appealed to me, however as we all know too well real leather is not cheap, so when I spotted this real looking leather skirt in H&M i had to have it. My outfit idea I must admit I got from Rosie Fortesque who teamed a leather skater skirt up with a blouse and bright coloured trainers. I loved the look and feel I replicated it with my own style fairly well, with a sheer shirt paired with matching coloured snakeskin pump shoes (which I love.) I then obviously had to team it with a statement handbag which never leaves my side.

THE CONTADICTORY CULOTTE





The trend of the trouser culoette for spring 2014 is HUGE, the new must have pant was all over fashion week. The high street and desinger market both offer basic/sophisticated or wild, bright pant types. Proenza Schouler is a particular desinger that nailed this trend for me, with the sophisticated and sharp tailored pant. This could be seen again on the high street with Zara selling a similar garment for a fraction of the price. I find a culoette quite hard to pull off with being quite short in height however if matched with pair of strappy heels for the evening this look could be exquisite. Victoria Beckham pulls off a culotte very well with her pointed court shoes, however for a daytime look I thought the culotte worked well with a strappy sandal. The bright white culoette pant featured today is from Zara brought recently in the sale! They are a pure/bright white colour so I have to be extra careful with them, teamed with a basic grey tee and a statement necklace I peronsally thought this look worked quite well together.

GIRLS ON FILM

video

All the Kardashian/Jenner fans out there will have noticed Kylie Jenner's mini films on Instagram lately, all we can say is that we are obsessed with the faded filters and relaxing music. Since finding out the app, all we've done is been making videos on our iPhones, so we decided to make a change on our blog and create our own mini outfit movie.
We are somewhat amateurs with the app but we already hooked. We hope you all like this change and hopefully we will be making a few more. Keep checking out our blog and instagrams for OOTD's.

DARKNESS

Tuesday, 1 July 2014



Todays look I didn't really plan well according to the weather. Recently I got a job at H&M, so yesterday I decided to take advantage of the staff discount. If you know me well you'll know i'm a huge fan of statement necklaces and a few months ago I saw this necklace in H&M and finally I decided to get it, so I had to test it out straight away. It goes great with a slack look of jeans and a t-shirt (seen above), I paired my outfit with some healed boots which seemed to be everywhere A/W13 and a plain sleeveless blazer (I adore these for summer.) My outfit was casual and comfy and in my opinion can be worn in the day with a swap of smarter trousers for the night.

Necklace: H&M £14.99, Top: H&M 3.99, Blazer: M&S 49.99, Jeans: Topshop £38.00 (ripped myself), Boots: H&M £24.99
