Day in the City!

Chilled/unplanned weekends are my absolute favourite. Don’t get me wrong I love having plans but when you have an unexpected great weekend I just love it. Last weekend my boyfriend and I ventured into Manchester city centre because I needed to get some more bits for our holiday. We shopped, explored, had cream tea in a little cafe that we have wanted to go to for ages, shopped some more and then had a lovely walk around Salford Quays which is where I, finally, decided to take some pictures of my outfit. I had been trying to find a decent (quiet) place to take pictures all day but kept on putting it off because there was too many people!! So when we were walking around Salford Quays, it was relatively quiet, I just decided to get it done!!Photo 02-09-2017, 18 01 27Because I knew we would be walking around Manchester all day I went for a comfy outfit and flat shoes, plus it was nice weather so wanted to wear some sort of sandals. I have had this top for a couple of months now and I absolutely love it! It’s pretty, comfy and really brings an outfit together and its from Primark which makes it even better. I really like the style and on the back there is a criss cross pattern just at the top which just adds something extra. The only downside is that it gets creased quite easily, especially if you are wearing it all day, which is why it looks a little creased in these pictures.Photo 02-09-2017, 18 01 30 (1)These jeans are my favourite jeans at the moment. The fit is lovely, the colour is perfect and they are so comfortable. They are from Stradivarius which is a shop I have never heard of before until it came to the Trafford Centre earlier this year and its now one of my favourite shops! I really like the rips on the knees and the distressing as well. I have rolled them up just a little bit at the bottom as well.Photo 02-09-2017, 18 01 32Photo 02-09-2017, 18 01 39My shoes are quite new to my collection and they are from Ego which is another shop that is quite new to me but I saw these in the sale a few weeks back and knew I had to have them. I had been looking for a pair of espadrilles for a while and these ticked all the boxes for me. They are also really comfortable, which as you may be able to tell is a big thing for me!! They also remind me of Valentino shoes because of the studs.Photo 02-09-2017, 18 02 28I finished the look off with my Kate Spade purple handbag and Olivia Burton watch. This is the bag I use everyday because its big enough to fit in everything I need but its not too big for walking around all day. I also feel like it goes with pretty much anything. I have also been wearing my Olivia Burton watch a lot recently and I’ve been loving it. Its so pretty and if I could I would buy every single watch from them because they are all stunning.

Let me know what your favourite high street shops are at the moment. I would say mine is currently New Look.

Day to Evening Outfit

Hello lovelies! So I finally got around to taking some outfit pictures. I have been meaning to do this for a while now but with UK weather being rubbish most of the time I have struggled. However, just recently the weather has been lovely so I took advantage of that and my aunties beautiful garden and took some pictures! This outfit is a smart casual one that can be worn to work, on a weekend or even out for a meal, so it’s super versatile which is just my kind of thing!

My Outfit:

I really love this outfit! I love how easy it is to wear and can be dressed up or down for any occasion. I saw this top in my local Tesco a while back and fell in love but didn’t get it as I am trying to save but with the weather getting a bit hotter I really needed some more summery tops so decided to invest! I really love the collar, it’s aΒ high neck butΒ sits just nicely and doesn’t feel too restricting. I also love the ruffle trim, I think it looks super pretty and is quite different. I think this whole outfit paired with the blazer looks super smart and great for work! This blazer was such a great buy as it goes with so many outfits with it being a neutral, light colour. Finally, who doesn’t love khaki jeans! They go so well with the top and it makes a change to my usual black skinny jeans!

Now onto the same outfit minus the blazer but plus my gorgeous new trench coat and scarf! Even though the weather is a bit warmer now the evenings can get a bit chilly and this is the perfect coat for keeping you warm! It’s still smart so is great for going out and will go with anything – another bonus! I am loving Navy at the moment, it is such an easy colour to wear. This coat is such good quality, it was a bit more than I usually spend on a coat but it’s totally worth it! The detail is quite simple with the buckles on the sleeves and shoulder but you don’t want it to be too fancy. I love how well it goes with my new scarf as well, like a match made in heaven!

So that is it for my ‘Day to Evening Outfit’. I hope you enjoyed it! Let me know what your favourite clothing shops are at the moment!?

See you soon!

Fashion & Beauty Haul!

Hello lovelies! Over the past few weeks I have been doing a spot of shopping and I have decided to show you everything that I have been buying! It’s a mixture of clothing, accessories and makeup so I am quite excited as it has been a while since I have been clothes shopping! Lets get started –

Last weekend my boyfriends parents came to see us so we went into Manchester and I took a trip to Charlotte Tilbury, of course, and I decided to buy the Colour Chameleon Eyeshadow Pencil in the shade Champagne Diamonds! It is absolutely stunning! I will be doing a full post on this very soon! I also took a trip to Primark and bought some skinny jeans, a khaki green blouse and a grey jumper with a medium turtle neck as I have been trying to find one for ages and this is so comfy! I am also going to do some fashion posts very soon featuring these items as I love them all a lot!

As I said in yesterdays post I went home for Easter and did a bit more shopping which involved Boots and my fave shop Tutto Bello! So from Boots I bought a L’Oreal Paris Eyeshadow in the shade Cameleon which looks just like a pearl and will be perfect for everyday wear in Spring/Summer time!

Finally I took a trip to my fave shop back home, Tutto Bello! They sell gorgeous handbags, jewellery, accessories and clothing. Every time I go home I always make sure to pop in as the owners are lovely and everything they sell is just amazing! This time I bought a handbag as I have been searching for one for a while now but nothing has jumped out at me but as soon as I saw this I loved it and bought it straight away!

So that is everything that I have bought over the past few weeks! I am going to do full posts on everything very soon so stay tuned for those! I hope you enjoyed this post!

See you soon!
