Hello everyone! I know it has been a long time since I last posted but lots is happening at this end! I feel like I’m busy doing everything and nothing all at the same time – a lot of the time life is very much ground hog day, but I always seem to find myself leading quite a hectic life.
I have found myself a summer job at a hotel, which I must admit has been taking up quite a bit of my time recently. But that’s fine, I get on great with my boss and the other people that work there so so it takes the pain of ‘going to work’ away. I’ve also been put on my mum’s care insurance for the past two weeks leading up to my test as I really needed to pass it this time. I absolutely HATE taking my driving test, but I guess I’ve become pretty well at it having to take it FIVE TIMES.
But luckily I passed this time, they do say that 5th time’s the charm, right?
I put it all down to my outfit on the day… I was wearing my new Wonder Woman top from H&M, which makes me feel so empowered as if I can conqueror anything! (Oh and maybe the ‘Rescue Remedy’I was taking beforehand too!) I spoke to the examiner about so much random stuff I bet he thought I was a right weirdo aha. One topic of conversation was how disheveled a dead seagull on the road looked. But whatever I said must have paid off as he passed me with one minor!!
Here’s a picture of me after the test… I apologize now for how I look. There were many sleepless nights before this day and I got so hot and sweaty going around the test route, it’s not one of my best looks. But anyway, here I am posing as Wonder Woman! The photo was taken by my Driving Instructor, Alison, who has seen me through my ups and downs over the past two years. I say driving instructor, but she’s more of a friend now than a teacher! So happy to have passed 🙂 🙂 🙂
I have lots of reviews coming your way. I decided to have a shopping spree in town last week and I really can’t wait to show you what I bought!
Until next time xx
It’s that awkward time of the year where you don’t know whether or not the weather is going to be gloriously sunny or miserable and rainy. Most of the time, you can expect it to be the latter. Because of this I wanted to introduce some items of clothing to my wardrobe that were ideal for layering in the cold, but also great to wear in the few warm days that we get.
Over the past few weeks I have purchased three tops that are perfect for doing so.
All of them are knitted or crocheted in some way which is awesome for when it is hot as they’re quite hole-y and so allow air to get in and out of them, but with them being crocheted they are made out of thick, wool like material which is pretty toasty when it’s cold out.
These three tops are gorgeous. All of them are flattering in their own way and I absolutely love the colours of them. Mucky green is becoming one of my favourite colours as I think it really goes well with the tone of my hair.
I’ve always been a bit unsure as to what to wear with semi see-through tops. I mean, you could just wear your bra underneath and it would still look good, but I’ve always been a bit self conscious in doing so. I tend to automatically go for a generic white or black vest top as they look subtle and just provide that extra layer of warmth. However, this year I have been experimenting a little bit more and have ventured into buying a black bandeau. I think these are great as you still get the full effect of the tops’ design, however protect your modesty whilst doing so. They’re ace with a crop top too, as vest tops are normally too long and you awkwardly get the bottom of them sticking out – which I never know what to do with.
I really am loving this look at the moment. I just hope that the weather picks up so I can wear these tops some more!
Find the green and red top at H&M and the black one in TopShop.

Here’s what I wore today! It’s a collaboration of some of my latest buys and some not so new buys too!
Let’s start from the top:
The black hat (that sort of looks like a riding cap) was from Zara which I bought in November of last year. I thought it was different because it has ears, which makes it extremely cute and also has that Japanese fashion sense about it too which is cool …
The pink blazer was a recent buy from New Look. I’ve wanted a blazer for quite some time and this seemed to fit the bill that I was looking for! It’s quite thin which means you can wear it if it’s warm, but you can pair it with a cardigan too and it doesn’t look bulky. The length is perfect as it comes down to just below my hips.
Underneath the blazer is a grey cardigan from H&M. This is there for extra warmth but I think it really goes with the blazer too. I love this cardigan as it’s long and warm! However, it’s made of wool and can sometimes be a bit itchy <<< 😦 … But as the saying goes, no pain no gain.
I recently picked my dress up from Primark for £13. I thought that was quite expensive for Primark but as a dress is practically a whole outfit I think it makes up for it. I love the design on this dress, it’s all girly with pink, green and yellow flowers. Even though it is floaty it’s still quite heavy – so I wont feel as though I have to hold it down when going out.
The watch I’m wearing is a Christmas present given to me by my parents. I love this watch! Not only does it do it’s job of telling the time, but it also acts as a bracelet as the strap wraps three times around my wrist causing it to cross over giving a bangle effect. It also has gold studs all down the strap which gives it a little bit of bling and brings it to life.
So, that’s my OOTD … What’s yours?
