Love double denim

I am loving double denim looks at the moment. For me, being the shortest person on earth, I find that it can be quite a heavy look. So, I teamed my beloved Levi 501s, that were given to me (free!!!) with this lovely Whistles chambray shirt.

I think that the lighter weight of the chambray makes it a lot easier to style and doesn’t make it too overpowering.

I topped off my outfit with my trusty TopShop hat, which I can’t get enough of at the moment. It literally goes with EVERYTHING. And finished the look with my favourite Rimmel lipstick which I posted about a little while ago.

Bagels, Bakery, Bath

Last week I went to Bath for a few days for work. It was also great as it meant I was able to stay with my friends that live in the countryside just on the outskirts.
I thought I’d share some pics of my time out and about…

First stop was my favourite vintage shop in Bath. I’m not entirely sure of its name but I like to call it, the yellow shop…because its yellow. I have found some great finds in here. You have to rummage but its definitely worth popping in if you’re visiting.

So this was a complete find as it wasn’t there last time I was in Bath. I cannot stress how amazing this Brownie was. It had a gooey sort of melted warm caramel centre. Literally amazing. Also, check out those meringues!

Lastly, I HAVE to mention this beaut of a place. A work colleague mentioned it and let’s just say, I will be eternally grateful to her! It was THE best bagel I’ve ever eaten.
I had a great time Bath and the weather was amazing, it felt a bit like being on holiday even though I was there for work.

Bank holiday sun

It WAS sunny and will be again on Friday apparently, sadly until then we will have a week of rain…bummer but at least the bank holiday was nice. What did you all get up to?
I went for a picnic with my friend which was sooo lovely. I actually got sunburnt, I think only the Brits are capable of getting sunburnt in 15 degree heat.

I am a major fan of the pyjama trouser At the moment. They are the most comfy things you will ever wear and are perfect for this sporadic weather we’re having. These ones are by Markus Lupfher for Whistles. I wore them with a simple block colour crop top, as I think you need to go for something simple with a pattern as bright as the hearts on these trousers. I’m always a bit sceptical of crop tops but this one, I’m not ashamed to say, was inspired by a look i saw rihanna wearing. I got it for ¬£2!!! from Primark so thought I’d join in with the cropped thing.

Today I’m wearing

Today I’ve gone for another pyjama style trouser. I really love the slouchy feel and they are the most comfortable trousers you will ever wear. I usually like to wear them with a heel to give it that sports luxe type vibe. Today though, I have gone with my new shoes my friend bought for me from morocco. I posted about them yesterday too. I love them so much and again they are sooo comfy.

I think it must be this muggy weather we’re having but I am really going for the comfort at the moment. So I think these orchid print silk trousers are a perfect mix. I am also surprised to say I am loving the lilac, I think its such a difficult colour to wear, it always reminds me of bad bridesmaids dresses, but this print couldn’t be further from it.

Adding to the whole sports Luxey type thing, I wore my grey sweat top that has really cool quilted shoulders, which I think toughens up the feminine floral print.

I accessorised today with neon pink, diamant√© earrings and a chunky silver bangle. I think the pink offsets the trousers nicely and it isn’t too much of a contrast when combined with a muted colour like my grey jumper. I also thought they looked quite cool with my freshly painted nails…still trying to get the hang of the whole nail art/nail pen thing. This is my second attempt, what do you think?

Today I’m wearing

Today it is pretty chilly again…I think our great British summer has already been and gone. But, I’m clinging onto the hope it’s not over yet and we can still wear our summery pieces.

I have warmed up my summery midi skirt with a more wintry grey fedora style hat and textured grey tights. I also love the combination of navy and orange together, so have muted down the bright summer orange with a textured, navy leotard type top. (it has velvet bits on it, it’s lush) one of my prouder primark buys!

Penny’s for a pound

So this month I’ve been saving money and have really had to watch my spending. I have actually shocked myself and am doing pretty well.
As the saying goes, save the penny’s and the pounds will take care of themselves.

Well that’s all well and good, but it does then mean you have more pounds to spend. So, surely then it’s only right to invest in something. Which is why I’ve decided to invest in this little beauty. I know it’s a bit counter-active but I can’t help it.

I’ve been looking for the perfect leather for ages. This is it. I have been looking at vintage aviator type ones, as I sometimes think that newer leather can look quite stiff, even the more expensive brands. I also decided I didn’t want black, as sometimes they can look quite harsh and a bit too bikery (is that a word?).

This is perfect, it actually reminds me of a Burberry style I saw a while ago, but is obviously less then a quarter of the price. It’s got a beautiful distressed finish and just enough detail to make it classic enough to be the perfect Investment for the future. I absolutely love it. What do you all think?
Shame I’ve got to wait until next month to save enough penny’s.

Its from Whistles and is available now.
