A Realistic Everyday Outfit

So here's the thing. I love putting together outfits, experimenting with textures, going all out with accessories.. And posting them online for you lot to hopefully enjoy, and take inspiration from.
But to be 100% honest..
 Theses outfits that we post about aren't always the true reality. We pre-plan looks or buy a certain items of clothing because "THAT WOULD LOOK GREAT FOR AN OOTD!"
Yet sometimes.. We have "normal" days, and with those days, we don "normal" outfits. 

All I'm saying is it's not always crazy important to go out of your way to make an outfit 100% 
Blog-worthy. Those days when you wear a top and jeans are more than okay to be getting the camera out for and putting it out there too. After all, a blog is a form of an online diary is it not? And in our diaries it's not always a trend setting day. It's just a normal, realistic day. So revel in it.

Sporty Monochrome

After struggling with a mental block.. Writers Block.. And what seemed to be a wardrobe of "10 times worn" outfits. I've gotten my act together, done a little shopping.. And I'm back! 
River Island was one of the main stores that stuck out when I was out shopping. Not only are their new lines on point.. I also picked up some great sale bargains!

This top is one of my favourite pieces. I love the sports luxe trend, I think it could be such a timeless trend as it can be so versatile!
This layered top is an easy way to incorporate a sporty piece into an every day outfit. And with keeping the colours monochrome.. It lets the top do all the talking! I've just thrown on my Holy Grail Nike Roshe Runs, and I'm ready for a long day of running around in work!

Lazy Day

Good morning you lovely bunch! Another Friday has rolled itself back around.. I'd say it's come around quick, but that would be a lie. It's been a hard week this time around.. And I can tell you this, a last day is much needed. 

My comfiest pair of skinny jeans, a cute shirt and of course.. A statement necklace and I'm good to go.
Lazy Day come at me!!

Lusting After.. OLIVIA BURTON

Now, who doesn't love a good watch?! It's not only an every day essential, it an accessory that can REALLY give a polished finish to any outfit. 
For me, I can be wearing the mist boring if outfits, but as long as my trusty Micheal Kors watch is on hand (arm)  I instantly feel that little but more put together. 
I say "trusty" Micheal Kors because by now, she's been through a fair share of bumps and scrapes, and I think another investment is needed.

And as I'm window shopping, I stumbled across these beauties.. The Olivia Burton Range! 
 These gorgeous & girly watches come in such a wide variety of designs. Small faces.. Big faces, Skinny straps.. Wide straps, All over designs.. Or simplistic beauties!
Embodying everything you could possibly want in a watch.

As hard as it was, I narrowed the collection down to my Top 5. 
(Please roll on pay day so I can treat myself!!)

Christian Dior Spring Couture '14

It's ALL about structure and texture at this years Dior Couture, Spring Collection! 
Keeping the colour palate simple with just black, navy and white.. The shapes of each piece are the real focus.

What I truly look about this collection?
Year after year I sit and swoon over the various Couture Shows. But this is one of the very few that I can see REAL people wearing. It brings the dream of one day being covered, head to toe in Couture that little bit closer. 

Here are my FAVOURITE looks!

Printed Trousers For Beginners

When I first saw these Cow Print trousers in Zara last season, I wanted to snap them right up. But being boring old me, I was worried what to team them with.
Far from the super stylish ladies who can rock a deferent printed pair of pants each day of the week.. I'm easing myself in slowly.

This take on Monochrome is ideal for beginners. Keep the colour palate neutral, and go simplistic with your accessorise. Let those trousers do all the talking!

What are your top picks on the printed pants style this year?

Fashion Focus.. A Bold Lip

Happy Sunday Lovelies! 
What is more depressing than working on a Sunday? Working on a Sunday in THIS weather..

Yes I'm slightly miserable today, so I've found myself reaching for my bright lipstick stash this morning as I get ready for work. (I'm also reaching for an extra croissant and making my coffee an extra strong one, but we'll skim past that..) 
It may not make up for the huge lack of sun rays.. But making that extra effort with your makeup on an "off" day, can really transform your mood. Put on that extra coat of mascara, draw on those fierce cat flicks, and ROCK THAT BRIGHT LIP. 

I'm debating between two shades that are VERY similar to those in the photo below.. Help me decide!

Hi-Five to all the workers today, we can do it!
