THE CULOTTE WAGON.








Zara Bucket Bag 

So after much debating, I am finally on the culotte band wagon, although i'm still debating a wee bit.
It's one of those things that I really love on other people, but i'm not 100% sure about them on me. Although this pair were an absolute steal in the Asos sale, and they're such a great fit round the waist (which is so rare for me, I struggle!) I don't think my boyfriend will be as keen... I have a feeling they will join my collection of man repelling items along with my hareem pants and statement necklaces, but who cares! I always say that i'd much rather another girl said I look nice than a boy, I value a women's opinion much more.

Whats your thoughts on the great culotte debate?

OBSESSION : COLOURED FUR CLUTCHES.


 
 
It appears I have a sudden & new obsession for a novelty fur clutch. I can't get enough of them! There's quite a few fine specimens on the high street at the moment, these are a few of my very favourites. I love the pinky/coral hues best... as you can see.
I also ordered this scarf from Asos the other day -
 
 
 
So it looks like my new fur accessory crush also spans to the scarf department. I literally cannot wait for it to arrive! I've been a bit bummed out with the evenings getting dark early and the weather getting a bit colder, but knowing I'll have this scarf round my neck makes the departure of summer and arrival of autumn/winter much for bearable!

I BANANA NY







Weekday T.shirt | Vero Moda Jeans | Zara Bag | Topshop Boots 

I'm so in love with my new bag that my boyfriend got me for my birthday, it reminds me of the Moschino bucket bags. I just want to wear it all the time with everything. I can't find the link to it online, but I know it's still in stores. It was only about £39 as well (yes I did pick it) which I think is an absolute bargain! It looks a lot more expensive & has such nice detailing on it.
He also brought me this t.shirt that I have loved for a while & this cute little necklace with my initial on, which you might have seen in mt last birthday post.
The boy did good!!

MY BIRTHDAY WEEKEND.



Birthday Treats | Zara selfie | I'm old | Wandering down Carnaby | Make-up treats | Joe & The Juice pick me up | Me & my boy | Window gazing | Hotel Chilling | My beautiful present from Josh

So my birthday weekend has just been and gone in a flash!
 
On Friday I went for some mojitos with my favourite gal palls & then for the weekend I went to stay in London with my boyfriend to do a bit of shopping & meet up with some family for a shandy or two. Unfortunately I was a bit poorly, so we didn't get to do a lot of the things I wanted to. Boo!! I knew there was a sure sign something was wrong when I was let loose in Topshop Oxford Street & didn't buy a thing!! Bad times!
It was my actual birthday yesterday though & I had such a lovely chilled day & evening with my mum, dad & boyfriend. I'm a major home bird, so spending the day pottering about with my parents & having a massive takeaway in my p.jays was the perfect day to me.
It's times like birthdays that I feel very blessed & lucky to have such wonderful friends & family!
Now I'm off to online shop to make up for my lack of it in London!

WANG.





Vintage Silk Shirt
Topshop lacey jeans
Topshop Jolie Heels
Primark Belt


This is just a little quickie of yesterdays outfit.
I forgot I had this shirt, I went off it for a while but I dug it out yesterday and channeled a little bit of Wang with the button undooing. I'm off shopping in Oxford Street tomorrow & i'm going on the hunt for a collarless shirt. A nice crisp white cotton Grandad style is what i'm after, I think Zara might come up with the goods. I brought my boyfriend one from Asos a while ago & much to his disapproval I want to be matchy matchy with him like a couple of grandads together. 
What a treat it will be.

KIMONOS AT ARK





So I have come to the conclusion that the perfect solution to this weird August/but not August weather we are having at the moment, is the trusty kimono.
As much as I love a chunky knit, i'm just not ready to start wearing them full time yet & I refuse to give into this ridiculous weather. It's summer for Pete sake!
I have picked a few of my fave kimonos out from Ark. We used to have an Ark shop near to me & I shopped there all the time, but we don't have one anymore, which i'm a bit gutted about! So I have recently rekindled my love from the brand online. I really love the marble print Kimono, I'm really into marble, cracked & speckled print at the moment, so I think that's my pick of the bunch.

ZARA KNIT









Primark Double Pouch Bag
Topshop Coin Necklace

I literally can't believe i'm wearing a thick wool jumper in the middle of August. Outrageous.
Although I am not complaining because I am absolutely in love with it. I might even go as far to say it's my favorite piece of knitwear that I have ever owned. Ever! A bold statement I know, but It just ticks all my boxes; it's majorly oversized, it's got a high crew neck, & it's fluffy without being itchy. It also comes in a couple of other colours, I'm really tempted by the sand one!
I can see myself living in this over the next few months.

I've also got a bit of a thing about the 'hair tuck'. I don't think that's a thing, but it's what i'm calling it. You know when you pull a jumper over your head and it tucks all the back of your hair in. I love that.
