Back 2 Basics



 
 Outfit details:
Jumpsuit - Primark (instore only unfortunately but similar here and here), Shoes - Zara (two seasons ago, similar here) , Y drop necklace - asos (similar here)

Fashion has gone all the way back to the 1940s with SS15's popular Utility Chic look. 
I have seen so many beautiful utility pieces floating in the fashionsphere but this Primark number grabbed and locked my attention.  This jumpsuit is the epitome of laid back chic. I adore the large pockets, the middle tie detail and the of course, the khakiness.

I know I rave on about this a lot but it is crucial that my wardrobe this year is suitable for both work and play. I have reached that sad sad age whereby a work outfit must be easily transformed into an after work drinks outfit before it gets a second look.  Don't get me wrong, I do buy the odd holiday or specific nights out items but most of my clothes have been purchased with the  'could I wear this to work and on a night out?' question in mind. And if the answer is yes, the outfit is a clear winner.  So the long and short is, this jumpsuit is perfect for my life right now.

A - LINE

Can summer be here soon because I am sick to my toes of layers.
This is me reminiscing back to my time in Morocco whereby the weather did not define me, I defined the weather (kinda)
Outfit details:
Ribbed Top & Skirt (my fav similar's here, here here and here) - Both Topshop , Nike Frees 4.0 (similar real ones here)

I love Topshop's ribbed crop  top-jumpers. So much so I have them in three colours. Usually, I layer them - so I wear a long shirt underneath for a somewhat business cool or pair them with some high waisted goodies for a weekend look.  I particularly love the texture of them however be a tad careful on which heat you wash them on as they have a tendency to shrink.

This beautiful A line skirt was purchashed in the sale. A brilliant find I must add. I love the pattern , the shape (A line is so IN right now) and the also very in trend zip down the middle detail.
And my lovely Nike Free's are in fact Nike Fakes purchased from the Moroccan souks for £14!! AND, what great fakes they are!! I wouldn't ordinarily buy fake shoes but I don't wear trainers too often so it kind of made sense.

Slits and Palazzos


An absolute impromptu post but I was beyond ecstatic to get my hands on these amazing Palazzo trousers from Prettylittlething.com. I have been eyeing the two piece for a while now but I haven't yet managed to obtain the matching top as it has sold out in so many sizes (although I am only one size). Palazzos are so my thing right now (alongside flares) and I am so happy the wide leggedness is coming back into fashion (makes me wish I kept my high school large flares with the silver chain dangling from the right hand pocket ) 
Yes I say high school - that is a thing is Norwich. Every non-Norwich person laughs at me like 'pfft are you American or something' - No, but my school in Norwich had a 'high school' at the end so I call it so.

Anyway back on topic. I have seen many wonderful bloggers and their take on flare trousers/jeans and I wanted to make mine slightly more slouchy and comfortable with a dash of chic. 
I got the slit jumper from Missguided as soon as it was released on their site  but then I went away and I didn't have a chance to blog it and so many other beautiful people beat me to it BUT it doesn't take away from the fact I think this jumper is divine and belongs in every divas wardrobe. I am a big fan of side slits because they plump up any dull tee or jumper so this was no exception!

Apologies about the muted picture quality on this post but as I said, it was a kind of impromptu (quick shoot before work - get something out there these blogger 'to do's' say I have to blog at least twice a week lol) hashtag blogger probs.

Outfit details:

Side Slit Roll Neck Jumper - Missguided,  Palazzo Trousers- Pretty Little Thing, Necklace - Zara (sold out) similar here

Hope you lovelies have all had a good week and have an even better weekend. Hope you are all happy to find out Bobby "shurmurda" Beale killed Lucy (learnt that via Facebee)

MORROCAN NIGHTS (PART 1)

Outfit details:

Blazer, (similar here and hereSkirt and Heels(similar here and here) - Misguided , Bralet - Topshop

In my last post I told you all I had been to Morocco - Marrakech the previous week. It was one of the best holidays i've had! As a matter of fact, I have been holiday sick since i've been back and that is very unusual for me. I aim to dedicate a whole post to the beautiful country in the future but before I do that I wanted to showcase some of the outfits I put together whilst over there, starting with my all time favourite.

The weather was absolutely gorgeous and I really took advantage of it by dressing in my favourite current purchases. As mentioned in my previous post, I feel quite restricted in the winter so I was overjoyed to be able to express myself  and actually make use of all the outfits I had previously bought(lol!)

I am all for fur and all for cape blazers this season. Cape blazers are a brilliant way to jazz up any work wardrobe. Perfect for am to pm  dressing and add a touch of class to any outfit. Fur trimmings add a playful side to what would be a slightly formal outfit.
