Happy Easter! I hope you are all having a fab Sunday eating lots of chocolate goodies! I'm not going to lie, I've already eaten most of my eggs as everyone made the mistake of giving them to me early, ooops. So with the chocolate long gone I thought I would treat myself to something that lasts a little bit longer, some gorgeous pastel pieces.

It doesn't seem like it, but Spring is on its way and with the warmer seasons comes lighter brighter clothing and accessories. Although I'm a big lover of mostly black outfits, I do love a pop of colour here and there and so I've rounded up some of my favourite pastel items you can buy right now.

- Pastels for Spring -
So what's on your Spring wishlist? Are you busting out the colours or are you sticking with your Winter wardrobe for now? I know I'll be wearing jumpers well into the Summer months but I'm holding out hope that I can start to wear some pretty pastels sometime soon!

EASTER TREATS - PASTEL WISHLIST


- Shop The Look -
         
These boots are made for walking! Well I mean aren't all shoes really? Anyyyyway, I finally got around to shooting another outfit of the day! I leave it way too long in between outfit shoots, and I don't know why because I find them so fun!

Sean and I popped to Leamington Spa last weekend and because its such a pretty little town I knew I wanted to get some photos there. I had planned on shooting against the lovely white buildings that line the town centre but it was just too busy and I'm not about posing in front of people! Instead I opted to flounce around in the much quieter but just as lovely, Jephson Gardens.


I'm not going to lie, I'm actually really happy with how these photographs turned out. Sean is getting pretty good with my camera and I'm actually learning how to pose? I wont be winning Britains Next Top Model anytime soon but I can definitely feel myself getting more confident with everyone outfit shoot I do!

I really hope you guys like this outfit! I'd love to see a few of your outfit posts, link them below or send them over to me on twitter!

OOTD | THESE BOOTS


As you've probably seen if you follow me over on Twitter, I have recently started my quest to find a proper adult job. That's right, I'm getting out of retail! Well hopefully I will be anyway. So with a brand new job comes a brand new dress code, no more gross baggy polo shirt uniforms for once.

I have already started to pick up some staple workwear items (fancy a haul vid?) mostly just trousers and shirts at the moment, but I thought it would be fun to pop together some outfits that are a bit more fashionable. 


- Outfit One -


- Outfit Two -



- Outfit Three -

Although I don't actually have a new job lined up just yet, (hire me plz) I am very excited to start putting my work wardrobe together and these are the kind of things I would really like to wear. 

Which outfit is your favourite?

WHAT TO WEAR TO WORK - 3 OUTFIT IDEAS


I never really thought I would make it to Uni. I was always pretty average at school and honestly I didn't try too hard in my A Levels either. If you told 16 year old me that I would one day graduate with a Distinction I'd probably laugh, but thats exactly what I did. Last month I graduated my HND Photography course, and as it was going to be a pretty special moment for me, I wanted something as equally special to wear. Queue massive dress haul...  


Thanks for watching!

ASOS DRESS HAUL | BLOGMAS DAY 5


 - Shop The Look -
         


I'm not going to lie, I find dressing for autumn/ winter super hard. Unlike pretty much every other blogger out there, I'm a big fan of Summer. Nothing makes me happier than being able to walk around in minimal clothing and still be nice and toasty. But now it's getting cooler and that's just not possible anymore.

I'm not a massive fan of coats, but I like to be warm without wearing 100 layers. I find most jumpers to be big and bulky on me, and I definitely can't pull off the cute wooly hat look, so what do I wear? Well there's not much choice really. For the next couple of weeks I'll try and get away with autumnal shirts and blouses but after that I'll be rocking the frumpy jumper look until about May! 

What sort of things do you wear in the cooler months?

OOTD | AUTUMN STYLING


With winter fast approaching it's about time we all updated our wardrobes. If we are honest though, it's that time of year where we are all saving for the most expensive holiday; Christmas. To keep costs down I've devised a list of just 5 things I think you need to tide you over until spring!
-- Thick Knit Jumper --
         

I think this is an obvious choice really, who doesn't love snuggling up in a super cosy jumper when it's freezing outside? I stock up on jumpers in the winter as I practically live in them; the thicker the better.

-- Black Boots --

Let's be honest, you can wear a good pair of black boots all year round but when it's cold and wet you definitely need something study to protect your toes. I wear Converse pretty much all the time but they aren't great when you have to wade through muddy puddles.

-- Cosy Parka --

Another obvious one really. I love a snuggly parka coat; if I get a good quality one it can easily last me a few years so I definitely think they are worth investing in.

-- Snuggly Pyjamas --

I spend half of my life in pjs so I don't mind spending a bit of moola on them. I'm not one of those people that sits in their normal clothes at home (Sean on the other hand...), the second I get in I swap straight into my pyjamas and relax.

-- Versatile Party dress --

You'll probably be going to a few parties during the festive season so it's a good idea to invest in a dress that you can wear a lot. If you are lucky you might even find something you can dress down to wear to work after all of the fun is over.

If I'm honest I could have added 100 more things to this list but I think these are the necessities you could get away with buying. Is there anything you guys run out to buy every winter?

5 ITEMS YOU NEED IN YOUR WINTER WARDROBE


Shop The Look
         

So I am finally back with another outfit post! It feels like forever since I posted an OOTD which is a shame really because I really love dressing up and prancing around in front of the camera. I still find it super awkward to pose in public though, not going to lie.

I've actually used my new camera for these photos which is why the quality isn't as good as usual but if I'm honest I was out for the day and I just couldn't be bothered to lug my big DSLR around with me. I know the photographs will never be as good using this new little camera but my old lady back just can't handle the weight of my other camera anymore. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I will try my best to create them more often!

OOTD | BELL SLEEVES AND BOOTS

A few weeks back I decided to book myself in for a personal shopper appointment at the Birmingham Bullring Topshop store. I really wanted some new pieces for my birthday and I loved the idea of having a stylist pick out things just for me!


I booked in with Charlotte who is the bubbliest friendliest girl you could ever hope to be styled by. We exchanged a few emails the week before the appointment in which I told her my dress size, what kind of things I wanted to try, and who my style inspiration was. Sometimes there is space for you to drop in for an appointment on the day but I think I much prefer talking to the stylist beforehand as is allows them to get a feel for the kind of clothes you like. It also means when you arrive for your appointment there is a rack full of clothes, shoes and accessories already waiting for you to try on!

When I arrived Charlotte firstly talked me through the pieces, many of which had arrived new in that morning. She showed me how she would style them with other pieces on the rack and suggested how I could style them with pieces I already owned.


I then began to try things on. There were quite a few things on the rack that I would never ever pick out myself. I've become quite stuck in my ways and tend not to veer too far away from what I'm comfortable in, however I absolutely fell in love with some of the pieces and next time I go shopping I will definitely try on things I wouldn't usually.

After trying on a few bits, swapping up sizes, and trying on some other pieces Charlotte suggested we take a walk around the shop together. I picked anything and everything that took my fancy and Charlotte also picked up some things she thought I might like. One thing I will mention at this point was that as I'm a bit larger (I range from a size 14 - 18 in Topshop sizes) there wasn't really much on the racks that fit me. I could order things online but that unfortunatly meant I couldn't try them on for the appointment. I really hope Topshop looks into stocking bigger sizes in the future as us chunky girlies want to look fab too!


Once I had finished trying things on, an hour and a half had passed and I was ready to pay for my purchases. As I said in the video, I didn't feel pressured at all to buy anything which is something a lot of people have asked me. I did end up spending more than I normally would on a shopping trip but I set myself a budget for the day and I didn't even get close to that. 

So would I book in for another appointment in the future? 100% yes! The whole experience made me feel like a VIP and did I mention it was free?! I'm not sure where else you would get to spend a few hours with a stylist and pay absolutely nothing! I came away with some gorgeous new pieces for my wardrobe and a new perspective on what suits my body type.

Have you had a personal shopper appointment at Topshop before?
