I can...have everything

T-shirt: Topshop   Trousers: H&M   Trainers: River Island   Jacket: River Island   Sunglasses: Primark   Watch: River Island   Bracelets: Topshop/H&M

Life isn't exactly how I thought it would turn out at the mo and has been getting me down recently. But then every now and then you have one of those crystal clear moments when you realise, actually, everything is quite good! The t-shirt kind of mimics my mood a lot of the time, I wanna see and do EVERYTHING all the time and get bothered when I can't! 

Need to just chill out a bit and enjoy what I have got going on, some fabulous family and friends. Cool flat, lovely new car (more of which will appear later am sure!) and am healthy, what more could I ask for?!!! Well maybe some Alexander Wang shoes...but that might be pushing it a bit!!!

Primark...Autumn/Winter 13

Images from:

OMG I couldn't help but post up these images of some of the pieces from the preview of the new Primark AW13 collection. Was flicking through the latest edition of Look magazine this morning and saw the feature with the campaign images that included some incredible pieces.

My ultimate favourites are the boots I have posted on Twitter but the denim pinafore is a great summer/autumn transitional piece and the new selection of coats are all amazing as well as the printed sweaters. Want it all...have to wait till the drop in stores in August though, boo!!! Also check out the magazine for a great alternative to the Givenchy shark sweater, will be hunting down!

Grey days...white heels

Jumper: Topshop   Jeans: H&M    Shoes: Primark   Bag: Primark   Ring: Miss Selfridge   

As followers on Facebook and Instagram will have seen am loving the white accessories at the moment (I know I am a bit behind the times!) and am currently wearing these shoes with all things! Just had a bit of walk before as still warm, (even though the rain keeps trying it on), and have then been nephew-sitting, he has some great fashion sense already for a four month old so will prob feature on here soon!

I can't believe some of the great things in sale at the moment, the Zara one has now kicked off and the shoes are proving quite tempting and as said before keep going back to the Kurt Geiger one, particularly the Samantha style ones, here, that I have loved since seeing on Sandra Hagelstam of, here and here.

Things will be...all white

Bag: Primark   Jumper: Topshop   Skort: Zara   Jewellery: River Island   Shoes: Primark

Hottest day of the year today apparently, so my eye has been drawn to all the white (and nearly white) items when out shopping today. Saw the jumper on one of Topshop's feeds (Facebook/Instagram...can't remember) and practically salivated at the look which consisted of dark denim cut offs and these cages shoes, here...sooooo copying that look.

The white shoes are a good bargain, as am loving the white heels (like the Zara skort they have been a bit everywhere) but are one of those trends I'm not sure will last a looooong time. Some of the ones that have been showing up in lots of places are these, here, from River Island and the wedge ones from Zara.  Time now to get checking out the sales, the Kurt Geiger one and Selfridges have some great discounts and some even further reductions...going now to do some surfing of the net for things I still can't really afford!!!

Sunglasses: H&M   Top: New Look   Jeans: H&M   Shoes: River Island   Bag: Accessorize   Necklace: Topshop

Must be the sun but was out today in an outfit with no black! Have spent the day playing with the nephew in the sun and saw by our flat, in the park, a lovely area of bright dandelions and buttercups and seemed like a great place to take a few pics. Like these sandals with a bit of a chunky heel, so no sliding into the grass!

The necklace I saw on someone in town and hunted the internet till I found it on the Topshop website, (well hunted might be a bit extreme as it was the first website I looked at!), also saw this dragon one from River Island, here, on the same day and now am thinking might have to go back for it!

What a...shocker

Dress: Topshop   Sunglasses: H&M   Sandals: Varanni   Jacket: Primark   Bag: Primark

This is one of those dresses that I LOVE every time I wear it, and don't do often enough. I think it's the shocking pink colour that makes me err on the side of caution (you know me, am a very black/white/grey girl!) but it has that pretty, floaty, swishy feeling when you wear it. I know, my technical descriptions know no bounds!

Having a bit of a blue couple of days at the mo, to be honest, missing the holiday, wishing did not have to work inside whilst the sun is shining and evil cold seems to be lingering on forever. So what helps? Why shopping of course...simple things!!! Have found a really beautiful dress the other day in Miss Selfridge that want to show off soon but also debating these sandals, here, from River Island (reminded me of these Isabel Marant ones, here) and this poppy print dress from Primark, here. Have we all seen they are now selling Primark clothes on Asos?!!! Verrryyyyy dangerous!

As I have done previously, here, have just put together quick post with some images from our trip to Ibiza this year. So wish had more guts to stop people and take photos of what they were wearing too as there was some great street style this year. Think as it was bit earlier in the year than we have been before. So whereas normally people are usually in as little as possible, this time it was a bit more of clothing 'holiday us' would want to wear - as Grazia put it last week.

'Holiday me' this year just went quite relaxed (though still had something planned to wear for each day!) but stuck to simple dresses and shorts this time. As with the mood of the hol, just went to chill out for bit so didn't take anything too fancy...and coz the bf refused to carry anymore of my clothes in his luggage too!

Sunglasses: Primark   T-shirt: H&M (Mens)   Skort: Zara   Trainers: Converse   Bag: Primark   Bracelets: Topshop

Ok so we are finally back from all our gadding about, got back from Ibiza this morning and have loved just having a chill in the sun for few days, till this morning when woke up with a stinking!!!  Gotta say we didn't really do a lot over there, just sat or drank in the sun mostly, which was what was needed, and the above photos were the favourites of some outfits we took photos of over there.

As said before this short/skirt from Zara have been EVERYWHERE (particularly in white) so I have succumbed to the trend, (is the hankerchief style front that got me), and wore them casually with my Converse. Wanted to dress up a bit with some fancy sandals I took but had forgotten suncream on the tops of my feet, (rooky mistake!), so these were the comfier option!. If people have been following on Instagram, here, you would've seen a few more snaps from this week but have more to post soon!
