A N K A R A

Outfit: Playsuit - Cassadjoa , Heels - Topshop, Bag - Zara

Hey guys, Hope you have all had a lovely weekend!
Last week was mega stressful for me but thank God for weekends.

I decided to do a quick post on last night's outfit to dinner to showcase this Ankara playsuit made for me by the beautiful and oh so talented Cassadjoa. I have been meaning to blog this for a while now as it was made for me late last year. 

I am in love with modern African clothing and I am so excited that it is slowly but surely taking the fashion world by storm. The bright colours,  intricate detailing and diversity in the fabrics makes it a fashion win every time. I am always on the look out for affordable modern African items and designers so I was absolutely delighted when I discovered Cassadjoa. 

Please visit her Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/CassadjoaFashion for pre-made and made to order pieces.

 Hopefully, modern African clothing and items will soon be a norm in High street stores!!

P.S.  on my instagram a few weeks back, I was talking about how quickly the Zara bag (pictured) sold out online. Anyway, I managed to finally find in Zara Norwich (good ol' home town), I was so excited when I saw it that I must have looked really strange running to it. It was also placed at an unfriendly height for a girl that is 5"4. After several attempts to jump and reach it, a kind gentleman must have felt sorry for me because he helped me without the need to ask (lol). 

This is my favourite bag ever and I haven't stopped using it since I bought it (Thank you ZARA!!!)

B A R D O T

It really makes me happy that it is starting to get hot and sunny again. I definitely was not ready for coat and scarf wearing, also known as, winter is fast approaching.

Maxi skirts are a beautiful transition between summer and autumn. This beautiful Tie Dye print with button-down-the-middle skirt is from Primark. It was an impulse purchase I do not regret. 

I am also a huge fan of Bardot tops at the moment. Popularised by the legendary 1960s icon, Brigitte Bardot, and her love for shoulder tops, this beauty adds the perfect hint of femininity to any outfit. AND OFCOURSE, Bardot was known for oozing femininity!  
This is one of the many Bardot tops i have purchased from ASOS. In my opinion, it is now a staple piece for every wardrobe.

Outfit: Wool Hat - H&M , Bardot - ASOS,  Tie Dye Skirt - Primark, Heels - ASOS (a few seasons ago), Anket - ASOS

For the love of CO-ORDS..

Outfit: Co-ord - Missguided, Lace Bralet - Topshop, Sandals & Sunglasses - Primark

And the love for missguided.co.uk continues...

This is another outfit I wore whilst at the Hideout Festival in Croatia. I love this outfit so much it warranted a separate post from my previous 'Hideout Festival - The Outfits'.
Two piece's, co-ords, match-matchy's are definitely this summer's top trend and what a great trend that is. 

The  TYISHA MONOCHROME PALM PRINT A-LINE MINI SKIRT is still available online but the jacket does not appear to be in stock anymore, however, the equally beautiful ALFINE MONOCHROME PALM PRINT CROP TOis still in stock and forms another great co-ord.

I am a walking Missguided wardrobe at the moment, but I wouldn't have it any other way :)

Hideout Festival Croatia- The Outfits

Unfortunately/fortunately, I didn't take my SLR on holiday so apologies for the lower quality pics but I still wanted to showcase some of my holiday outfits.
Hideout was amazeballs (yes I say amazeballs!).  Definitely what I expected and more but it was SOO tiring after night 3. We arrived on Saturday night and started the madness then, by Wednesday I had had enough and would have happily been at home watching Game of Thrones with a cup of tea. But no, I made it till the next saturday like the trooper that I am. The DJs were absolutely amazing - Shy FX in particular was unbelievable. 
All in all it was an unforgettable holiday spent in the beautiful sun, dancing like no one was watching and eating yummy food with my nearest as dearest. 
Outfit: ASOS Hawaiian Print Cross Front Wrap Halter Swimsuit , Levis Short - Vintage (showcased in my You & Me post) , Primark sandals, Body Chain - eBay.

I am so inlove with this swimsuit, It fits like a glove despite my small boobs. I received so many compliments about it AND it can double up as a top (which many people thought it was)! 

The fear of wasting a great outfit on an insignificant day is definitely real. It should have it's own phobia name. I bought this beaut playsuit a while ago but I had been saving it  especially for the festival. #nerd
Outfit: Bikini - VodaSwim , Fringe Kimono - ASOS (last season), Sun Hat - Zara, Belly Chain - Ebay, Shorts - eBay

Psst, I discovered VodaSwim just before I went on holiday, they make beautiful bikini's especially for ladies that want a little boob vava-voom. Slightly pricey but worth it for a subtle yet noticeable lift.
Outit - Topshop Skinny Crop Tee, Missguided Split Maxi Skirt, Primark Sandals

Okay so funny story about this Missguided skirt.  I saw it on someone walking down a High Street. I chased her to ask were she got it but she disappeared (lol). The lushness of the skirt remained on my mind all day so when I got home, I googled all combinations of details of the skirt I could remember - without any luck.  A couple of days later, I put the same descriptions I had used into eBay, and eBay never fails, there the skirt was and IN MY SIZE. What are the odds!! I would have paid next to anything for it but luckily, the price did not break the bank at all. It is such a beautiful well fitted skirt, no wonder it sold out on Missguided so fast. 
Bikini - eBay, Headband & Sandals - Primark

Ahh I love this bikini. I bought it from eBay China for like £4. It is labelled as a push up bikini but it really isn't. There is no push factor to it at all and it is very lightly padded. So ignore the description if you are thinking of purchasing one also.

Thats all for today folks.  For every item still in season or available online, a link has been provided. For all other items, try the websites themselves for alternatives, eBay or street stores (i.e. Primark) . Any questions? feel free to drop me a comment ;)

I also had a little blog re-vamp. You like?

'Loyal'


*super Late post alert* 

but Hey, by now you must have heard and gotten sick of that song 'Loyal' by Chris Brown et. al?.
Well I'm not yet sick of it tbh. 

Okay so I am a big Breezy fan - Like HUGE. That song is such a hit, to be honest, any song he makes is a hit. Anyway, I really loved his outfit with the Check- Leather-Timbs combo so I decided to replicate it whilst adding a touch of  femininity. 

I am really mean-mugging in this shoot but I wanted to channel my inner street.

Pleather Jacket - eBay • Boyfriend Tee - George  Jeans - Topshop  Shirt - Main Source  Ankle Boots - Aldo

I think I did okay you know, but here is the man himself...
