I shot this outfit over the Easter weekend, on a lovely day out with my boyfriend (thanks for the photos Josh!), and I just absolutely love the colour of this dress.

This kind of bright green colour is normally something I would avoid wearing - I'm not really sure why, maybe because it's not fitting with my usual, beige, brown and white attire... but, alas, the sun was shining, the birds were singing, and I just felt the urge to wear it!

At the end of the day, Instagram was filled with summer dresses over that weekend; everyone truly embraced our mini-heatwave. All those spring/summer pieces finally got to see the light of day... I mean, yeah, only for 4 days, but still!

There's something about this dress that, despite being a piece kindly gifted by Nasty Gal last summer, gives off that kind of vintage 50's vibe. I love the contrast between the white and green, and the fit of the dress is so cute and flattering, and it's definitely safe to say that the polka dots just top it all off. 





DRESS - NASTY GAL // CARDIGAN - MISS SELFRIDGE // BAG - PAULS BOUTIQUE 

You know me, I love a vintage piece. I love rooting through the charity shops and finding a big ol' blazer for £2, or nabbing some knitwear from the men's section, but, it's also great to get that vintage feel from high street brands too sometimes - to treat yourself to something new and have it work perfectly with the rest of your (what could be charity shop in itself) wardrobe.

This dress is a great example of that. This is the kind of piece I could see myself wearing with a mensy over-sized blazer and some cute heeled sandals or the kind of thing I could rock with a bold red lip and leather jacket - something that will just contrast perfectly with those masculine and edgy vibes.

And, at the end of the day, who doesn't love a polka dot? It's a classic and a staple, especially in my wardrobe. 

When the warmer weather hits, you can find me donning polka dots in all colours and styles, dressed up and down, depending on the occasion. I even recently treated myself to a polka dot maxi from Zara, that I've been lusting after for ages (I've been specifically told by Josh however, to save it for when we go away to Milan in June, as he insists on him being the one to take photos of it haha, so keep your eyes peeled for that).

You just simply can't go wrong with a polka dot piece, especially if you're trying to transition a bit of pattern into your looks. A dot-to-dot here and a dot-to-dot there can go a long way!





I've included some cute polka dot pieces below for you to take a look at, some more colourful than others and some for the beige lovers out there! Let me know if anything catches your eye!

It's no news to you all that my style revolves around a lot of gold accessories. I love the way it works with my outfits, my hair and my complexion, and I've always been drawn towards gold, I'm like a magpie when it comes to it - it's always been something I've seen as so classic and timeless. It's something that I love in everything I wear.

Gold just works for me, makes me feel put-together and ready to take on the day. You will know I wear my gold jewellery on daily repeat and that's why I've got to share with you these amazing new styling essentials from CALVIN KLEIN.





Let's begin with these gorgeous hoop earrings. These are the 'Groovy Earrings' and they're absolutely perfect for a kind of-minimalist girl like me.

They're a half-hoop, which makes them a little more interesting than your regular hooped earrings. I think it's little details like that, that can make all the difference when adding to your looks, plus they're such a beautiful shade of gold - so reflective of this lovely time of year with glorious morning sunshine.

I like my jewellery to feel noteworthy - worth paying attention too - and these earrings do just that. They're timeless and sophisticated, yet fit so perfectly with a more 'modern' look just as much as the vintage pieces I have in my wardrobe.

These are such as easy-to-wear piece too. They're the kind of thing that go with every look no matter what you're wearing and can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. I just adore how a pair of earrings can be just as much a part of my outfit as a simple day-to-day piece of clothing can.





Then we have the necklace, also from the 'Groovy' collection, and there's just something about this piece makes me feel so special. The gorgeous engraving of 'CALVIN KLEIN' adds that exciting name to the piece, yet so elegantly and unambiguously, and again there's such a beautiful tone to the piece that makes it workable with all my looks.

It's a piece I grab for when my outfit has a little something missing from it, when it's in need of a little more 'life'. Adding an amazing piece of jewellery like this to an outfit can even boost my mood and give me more confidence in how I feel in what I'm wearing. It's wonderful what wearing a good necklace can do for me.

As someone who's so used to layering necklace over necklace, it's nice to just to have that one stand out piece in my collection which I can grab for and be on with my day, knowing that it looks good and makes me feel good too. It makes styling in a morning so much simpler.






Accessories can be a very personal thing for a lot of people, I know it can for me, so sharing this CALVIN KLEIN watch with you is very significant to me.

I've always struggled with watches: finding a style and shape that I like, finding one that fits my small wrists, finding one that I feel I could wear every day; however, the stunning 'High Noon' watch is perfect.

This is the kind of piece I've always been after. It's detailed and dramatic, yet still feels so graceful and smart to wear. It stands out beautifully in an outfit and is so eye-catching and bold. It fits perfectly too, with it's adjustable strap, which I've always found difficult when looking for a more 'masculine' style of watch. Plus, it keeps me on time for anything I might be busying about doing. What more could I want from a watch, right?

It's brilliant to feel like I've found the watch I've always been after.






Every piece in this blog post is so carefully designed and feels so luxurious - especially for someone like me to get to style. I love how these accessories have slotted perfectly into my every day looks and have managed to give me a kind of 'styling confidence boost' at the same time.

A piece of jewellery can hold so much power and especially at this time of year, it's nice to start accessorizing more when we're finally rid of giant fluffy coats and chunky scarves that they'd usually be hidden under.

I honestly could go on for days about this collection, I really could, but I'll leave you to take a look yourselves and maybe to treat yourself to a new Spring/Summer styling accessory.

Leave me a comment if anything here has caught your eye or if you're as mad for jewellery as I am too!

Every year we begin with the same notion 'this is going to be my year'. You let months pass by, sometimes sticking to those numerous new years resolutions, sometimes not, with fingers crossed tightly that soon that 'big break' is going to come along and that that 'thing' that's going to make this 'your year' will finally pop up. You wait it out, and then try your best, and you suddenly realise: 'shit, it's April'.

This is something that I notice a lot more now that I'm heading into my twenties. I start every year on a high, hoping that something HUGE is going to come along and make my life amazing... I'm talking, being shipped off to beautiful countries, living in my own dreamy city center flat, and not having a financial care in the world, kind of amazing. 

I see everyone else floating around, seeming to have their shit together and I get filled with this unnerving sense of 'when is that going to happen for me?'. Like a heavy weight of uncertainty has just hitched itself onto my back and won't let go.





TOP - THRIFTED // BELT - ASOS // EARRINGS - PRIMARK 

I've recently been trying to worry less, however. (You may have read in another blog post here). It does seem to be working. I feel less stressed, I guess. A little bit 'lighter'.

Of course, it would be nice to feel settled and sure of everything already, but I'm 20 god damn it, I've got to give myself a bit of a break.

In some aspects of work, I seem to have fallen short, or at least hit a slump of sorts. Things just don't seem to be working, or at least maybe it's time to shake things up a bit. Normally that's a thought that would have me crying, head in hands, completely beside myself, yet I've just hit a point where I've began to think, 'okay, so what else is there out there for me?'.

Sure, there's not necessarily a perfect answer to that question. I'm spending a lot of my time either staring into space blankly or spurting out my ideas to any friend who will listen. But, to be honest, it feels like a good point in my life to reexamine things. I feel ready to start questioning things and working out what I want to do next to make me happy.




SKIRT - NOBODY'S CHILD (GIFTED) // BOOTS - MISS SELFRIDGE (GIFTED) 

The thing about life is, we can't always have everything figured out - as annoying as that is. Sometimes we can swan through life, our Mondays-Sundays filled with work and exciting opportunities, and other times we can be left wondering what the fuck's going on.

Life can be a whirlpool of so many different kinds of days, emotions, people, etc. and there's always the possibility of things not going exactly how we want. Well, more than a possibility to be honest... I can't count many days where my life runs completely smoothly.

However, I no longer want to be complacent with that 'I don't know what's happening' feeling. I want to be progressing forward, even if it's at a slow pace - moving towards something that I'm entirely content with.

I want to build myself a life, not just be hovering in the same place for the rest of time.





Change can be good - that's my thought right now. Change can be good and taking the time to figure out that 'change' is proving to be pretty beneficial for my life and my way of thinking. I go through so many 'ruts' where I just don't feel good enough, but I need to remember that each day is a new day, full of new ideas and new opportunities, and I just need to take it as it comes, putting it together piece by piece.

I've always been one for a simple outfit, you know a good ol' bit of denim and a baggy tee - you can't go wrong with a basic look to build your outfit off. However, lately I've lost my love for jeans. I just can't seem to find a pair that make me feel 'good' anymore. I mean of course I still have a staple pair or two in my wardrobe - some days just call for jeans and a jumper, of course... but I've found myself grabbing more for my dresses and, most of all, trousers, to complete my looks.




BLAZER - NEXT (THRIFTED) // TEE - BOOHOO // TROUSERS - STRADIVARIUS (GIFTED)

I've been hunting for a pair of jeans that I feel confident in for ages now. From shop to shop I've been in and out of the fitting rooms, trying to nab a pair that I tried on and just thought 'yes, this is the pair!', but it just never happened.

Over time I began to build a collection of trousers - from culottes to palazzo and vintage style suit trousers, I've developed a love affair with a piece of clothing and I don't think I'll be looking back anytime soon.

Trousers just have this effect that make me feel put together and classic. I feel strong and powerful in them - a way that jeans just stopped making me feel.

Especially with my building collection of blazers and long coats, trousers have slotted perfectly into my day-to-day style and I always find trousers fit me much more flattering than any of the jeans I've had my eye on right now.




BOOTS - MISS SELFRIDGE (GIFTED) // JEWELRY - PRIMARK 


Don't get me wrong, I'm not swearing off those denim leg warmers forever, but I'm definitely growing fond of styling trousers with anything and everything right now.

Maybe I'll eventually find a pair of jeans that make me feel incredible again, but right now, I'm sworn to styling up any beautiful trousers I can get my hands on.

I've included some of my favorites, as well as some I've got my eye on, below for you... just in case you want to jump on my weird anti-jean bandwagon too!
