Plaid on a Thursday

Thursday, 18 September 2014

I love the beginning of Fall, when we still have some of those gorgeous warm days. This was from a few weeks ago now. Kept it casual as usual but decided to add a bit of colour with this red shirt. I feel like it was the perfect addition to my outfit. Again, more blue jeans, I did say I've been wearing them non-stop. 

I'm now back at university and all moved into my flat for the year. It feels so strange yet comforting to be back once again. It's crazy that I'm a quarter of the way through my degree already. 

September Stripes

Thursday, 11 September 2014

I have a funny relationship with skirts. Sometimes I wear them all the time, others I don't go near one for months. I've been in a skirt mood recently though, and I've been greatly enjoying it. There's not many things I love more than thick black tights! 

I've rediscovered this top after having it for nearly five or six years and not wearing it for the last four of them! I'm not sure why I've not worn it much, I really like it. It's so comfortable! Making the most of the warm weather the past few days, it'll soon be freezing cold again, winter is coming.

All Time Classic

Top: Forever 21, Jeans: Zara, Bag: Kate Spade, Shoes: TOMS
Yet again I'm sporting blue denim cuffed jeans. I think this has probably been one of my most worn styles over the summer, literally every single pair of jeans I own has a few turn ups at the ankles just now. I've only wore blue denim a handful of times in the last year but now I can't get enough of them!  I love wearing them with a loose fitting top, tucking it in just a little at the waist. 

I've been obsessing over the handbag I'm using here recently, I picked it up in July and I've been using it non-stop. It has a gorgeous perforated pattern on the front that is so different to any other bag I own and the colour of it is so versatile! After thinking about getting a charcoal coloured bag for years I'm glad I finally have this one!

I'm heading back to university at the end of this week which I'm crazy excited about. As much as I love being at home and surrounded by so much greenery, I can't wait to get back to the city.

Top: Topshop, Shorts: Mango, Bag: Kate Spade, Shoes: Mulberry, Sunglasses: RayBan
This post will be my final outfit from my holiday, I can't believe how quickly the past month has gone. Is it really so far into September already!? I've been trying to drag out posting the photos I took while I was away for as long as possible, it's been nice to pretend this is the kind of outfit I've actually been wearing recently. I miss shorts and sandals, especially the ones I'm wearing here!

These shorts are from Mango, and they're one of my favourite pairs. I love that they are a little more formal, so I tend to wear these when I go out for dinner. They crease pretty easily which is a bit of a pain, but I don't normally wear them for an entire day anyway so it's not too much of a disaster! I paired it with this cropped blouse, I'm not a massive fan of spots on clothing but I really like this shirt for some reason. 

As sad as I am to see the end of summer, I can't wait to break out my Autumn/Winter wardrobe. See you soon.

What's That? A Hat?

Wednesday, 3 September 2014

I finally did it. I bought a hat. 

I've been wanting to pick up one of these hats for weeks now. Believe it or not, before yesterday I hadn't set foot in a shop that didn't sell food, for nearly a month! Is that a new all time record for me? I think so. 

I popped into the city centre yesterday afternoon though for some lunch at my favourite cafe and a little bit of shopping. I'm not sure if churros with caramel sauce and a few macarons can really be considered lunch, it was delicious though! Along with this hat I also bought a new leather jacket, which quite honestly, is the new love of my life. It's seriously gorgeous and I can't wait to share it with you. 

Spice Up Your Life

Monday, 1 September 2014

I'll be honest and say it straight out. I don't think I have ever looked so tanned in my whole life. Maybe the camera emphasised it a little (a lot), maybe I really was that tanned!? Whatever the reason, I've been back for almost a month now and I'm back to my classic Scottish pale. 

On to the outfit now, yet another pair of patterned joggers from Topshop to add to my collection. I did get a fair few strange looks from people when they spotted these, but ah well, I love them that's all that matters! I wore it with my new favourite top, (again from Topshop, oops!) It has such a Spice Girls/Sporty Spice look, that I'm just loving at the moment.

Looking Lime-y

Friday, 29 August 2014

This was the outfit I wore to my cousins wedding last weekend. I'll be honest and say that I absolutely love it! The photos aren't super because I was in the typical mad running late rush and somehow, I had forgotten to change the camera to autofocus so most of the ones I took were all fuzzy. How annoying! I felt like these two photos show my outfit pretty well though, although I do blend into the background a little!
Dress: Calvin Klein, Shoes: Ugg Australia, Bag: Kate Spade

The dress is from Calvin Klein, I picked it up from Macy's while I was in Florida last month. It was actually a very reasonable price, and I immediately knew it was the perfect dress for me. I love anything that is lime green, there is actually one particular shade that has been named 'Joanne Green' by my friends because I own so many things in that colour, oops! I love the seams that run along the dress, they add just a touch of detail while still maintaining a minimal look. I think it's one of my favourite clothing items I've ever owned!

I paired it with my all time favourite wedges from Ugg, seriously they are the most comfortable shoes! I then used my small black Kate Spade bag, I love how it can so easily be used for both casual and more formal outfits. I finished off the look with my favourite nail polish, Dior's Psychedelic Orange, I'm obsessed with this colour combo! I've been wearing it a ton ever since I picked it up in the Spring, I actually got it in Duty-Free on my way home from Tenerife for something crazy like 5 Euros! Definitely one of my best beauty purchases this year!

In other news I've just booked a trip to London for next week which I'm really excited for. Three days of wandering around my favourite city, art museums and buying too many macarons from Laduree.
