3 Looks- London Travels

Hey guys! Today’s blog post features 3 outfits that I wore when I stayed with my sister in London last week. I had such a fun time and did lots of shopping and fun activities. Hope you like- Enjoy!

Look 1- Florals and Denim

Here I am standing in front of the Monki store on Carnaby Street. My floral blouse is from Monki and I’ve worn it to death since I purchased it last summer and I usually pair it with my denim skirt from Asos which always rides up- it’s not always this short- urgh! I’m wearing my tan sandals from Office, Cambridge Satchel (worn throughout) and Olivia Burton watch.

  • Monki Pink Floral Swing Blouse
  • Asos A-line denim mini skirt
  • Office Tan Leather Sandals
  • Cambridge Satchel Navy and Blush Bag
  • Olivia Burton Black Leather Strap Watch

Look 2- Fifties Glamour

I wore this outfit for a job interview at Canary Wharf and most of the items are my sister’s since I forgot to pack smart clothes. I love my sister’s patterned midi skirt from Stradivarius as it creates the perfect fifties hourglass silhouette. Into the skirt, I tucked in a navy v-neck blouse with lace on the sleeves (again my sister’s) from Banana Republic. Since this blouse has quite a low neckline it looks good with a small dainty necklace on a short chain and mine is from Accessorise. I wore the same shoes and bag as my last look.

  • Stradivarius Patterned Neoprene Full Midi Skirt
  • Banana Republic Navy V-neck Blouse
  • Accessorize Dainty Silver Necklace
  • Sandals and Bag (Same as above)

Look 3- Patterned Culottes

I purchased these amazing scarf print culottes from Zara about a month ago and I am still obsessed with them! I wore them out to dinner and a walk along the South Bank and styled them with this turquoise ribbed top from Topshop. I then slipped on my rose gold Ipanema sandals and opted for my favourite necklace from & Other Stories which seems to look great with everything!

  • Ipanema Rose Gold Sandals
  • & Other Stories Long Pendant Stone Necklace
  • Bag (Same as above)

OOTE- Zara Print Cross-over Blouse

Today’s post is more of an evening look (I would never wear heels in the day!) and the main element of it, is this gorgeous blue print Zara cross-over blouse which I got in the sale for a bargain of £12.99- Oh yes! Due to the blouse being quite baggy and oversized, I have styled it with my grey marl trousers from La Redoute which are my favourite trousers as they match with everything and they are skinny but not clingy on the leg! For accessories I have added my silver paisley long chain necklace from Mango as I feel it works well with the deep v-neck of the blouse therefore extending the torso. I have also stacked on 2 silver rings which say “Dance” and “Sing” on them and they are from Tempest Jewelry. To make the outfit more of an evening look, I have added my black chunky heels from Red Herring but if it was for day I would add some black ankle boots to complete the look. Hope you like- Enjoy!

OOTD Greece 2- White Lace and Topknot

Today’s post is another OOTD from my holiday in Lemnos, Greece. This OOTD features this lovely crisp white lace dress from Topshop. It’s the perfect dress to wear in the summer as the white colour emphasises a tan and the lace section adds femininity to the look as a whole. This look is simplistic and could be easily recreated with any white dress, just add some tan gladiator sandals like mine from Laredoute, a turquoise gem bracelet, mine’s from Asos and a high topknot bun which polishes off the look. The picturesque views of Lemnos really set off this look with the dominant mountains and hot pink flowers. Enjoy!

OOTD Greece – Off the shoulder and Floral Shorts

Hey guys! Today’s post is an OOTD, of a look that I wore during my holiday in Greece. Due to the scorching hot weather on the Grecian Island of Lemnos, this outfit was perfect! I wore an Asos white off the shoulder crop top with H&M blue and white floral shorts. On my feet, I wore my La Redoute strappy gladiator sandals and to accessorize my outfit I wore Rimmel red nail polish called Hip Hop. This outfit is very simple but as I said before it’s ideal for soaking up the rays and for keeping cool. Hope you like! Enjoy!

OTTD: Paisley Playsuit and Floppy Hat

This is what I’m wearing today and its got a very summery vibe to it, despite the sun only coming out for about 5 minutes of each day in England! My look comprises of this beautiful Warehouse silky blue paisley print playsuit from the sale, La Redoute floppy straw hat, La Redoute strappy tan suede sandals, light pink bag (my mum’s) and black H&M sunnies or at some points Asos tortoise cat eye sunnies. This look is fairly casual but the luxurious fabric of the playsuit really adds to the outfit as a whole. I also love how the blue playsuit and pastel pink bag look together.- Hope you like!- Enjoy!

Denim Jumpsuit and Patterned Bomber Jacket- Outfit Post

This is a little outfit post that I shot the other day! It features firstly this Topshop denim jumpsuit which I purchased a couple of years back but I wear this piece to death! Denim and dungarees are also huge trends at the moment and I have paired my jumpsuit with this new Pull & Bear China print bomber jacket! I adore this jacket as the fabric is very feminine, floaty and I’ve been lusting over a bomber jacket for ages! I am then wearing some black leggings, some cute Topshop frilly socks and my Office caramel patent loather flatforms! I haven’t accessorized this outfit too heavily and have mainly let my gorgeous crystal statement earring (were my mum’s) do the talking! I have styled my hair up and also down with this outfit and added a H&M plaited headband with a high bun to create a slick look! I hope you like this post and are having a great easter holiday and weekend!

16th Birthday Outfit- Baroque Asos Skater Dress

A few weeks ago it was my 16th Birthday Party and I had a small party with some close friends! The theme of my party was baroque/prints so I wore my Asos Baroque print skater dress which I adore! I love it because it’s a very flattering and versatile piece and can definitely be dressed up and down. In my opinion I also think it was very reasonable at just £25! Soon, I think I will style it in a look book and create day and night looks- comment if you would like this! Here, I have kept it very simple with a high bun and pearl earrings. The dress also has a very gorgeous low back which I think is a very elegant area to show off! I hope you like!- Plus I have also put a couple cheeky pics showing my face in this one so you can see the hair and makeup!- Enjoy!

OOTE-(Outfit Of The Evening)- Birthday Dinner

Yesterday, it was my friend Tosti’s Birthday dinner and we went out to an Italian restaurant called Ask. I had a great time with six other friends who came aswell and I had Fettucine Bolognese for my main and shared some delicious profiteroles for pudding(however they were quite tricky to eat and being me, got chocolate all over my face) !The outfit I wore last night features a lovely La Redoute high-waisted burgundy skirt with pleather panels- you may have also seen it dressed down a bit in another post- https://vintagevicar22.wordpress.com/2012/11/18/autumn-look-pleather-and-cute-dog-scarf/. This look shows how this skirt can be dressed up slightly more for any night out! I have paired it with my vintage silk blouse, M&S thick grey tights, La Redoute grey marl cardi, UO brogues (can’t see), Fossil clutch, Rococo silver dangly earings, a huge side bun and a blackberry lip!- Enjoy!
