Ode to summer

Apologises loved ones for my recent dissapearing act, a combination of hard work and just general busyness has meant that I have regrettably neglected my little space on the net. 

From now on I will attempt to blog at least once a week and my post will more often than not be an outfit collage. It's good to see that people are still interested to find out what's going on on my blog,
despite not having posted for nearly three months...(where has that time gone?!)

Good news, I am now writing editorial content for Fantasy Shopper which is exactly what I have wanted to do for a very long time now. I am writing the event descriptions for their daily outfit challenges on the website, (click here to see more) which by the way has had a recent face lift, so there has never been a better time to play this rather addictive social media meets online shopping game. I RECOMMEND.

Anyway today's outfit is created with our non-existent summer in mind. I am suffering from my first winter flu (boo) so I although I hate to be the bearer of bad news, it would indeed appear that the autumn is very much upon us. I don't know about you, but for me this means even more tea drinking and lots and lots of Downton Abbey watching....

Shakti Necklace: All Saints £110

A day in the office

So the requests for this outfit included affordable, comfortable yet still fashionable. Although this outfit has a hint of luxury, i.e with the likes of the Michael Kors watch and pearl earrings, the basic components are reasonably priced. What's more when it comes to office wear, these things are all staple pieces for any working ladies wardrobe.


Michael Kors Stone Set Watch: BWC £188
Padlock Shopper Bag: Warehouse £38
Black Pencil Skirt: Matalan £6
Fresh Water Pearls: PearlsOnly £29
Contrasting Pocket Detail Shirt: Matalan £8
Black Velvet Court Heels: Office £60

50 shades of summer...

I don't know about you, but I am seriously starting to give up hope for a summer this year. I am desperately missing the sun having recently returned from holiday and I think it is safe to say we can pack our sandals away and instead reach for the wellies.  There is only one thing that can make you feel better on a cold, miserable evening like this... a good book.


Original Hunter Wellies: £75 Topshop
Pale Blue Jeans: £45 MOTO Topshop
Leather Snake Tote Bag: £75 Topshop
Feather Dream Catcher Earrings: £12.50 Miss Selfridge

As free as a bird

Sorry for my recent absence! My internship at Fantasy Shopper has since turned into a second job, plus I have just returned from a holiday, leaving me with very little time on my hands to blog. I am hoping to be back blogging properly again in the next couple of weeks. 
This is an outfit inspired by my current mood and desire to travel and explore. I discovered the dress version of this swan print blouse in July's Vogue and I just had to have it. Unfortunately the dress has now sold out online, however this quaint blouse is the next best thing. 
I hope all of my readers are well-watch this space and don't forget about bracelets & bangles!
