Glitter, Denim and Platforms

|| Sequin Skirt - Dorothy Perkins* || Top - Primark || Denim Jacket - My Mums! || Platform Sandals - iKrush* ||
|| Necklace - My Sisters! || Sunglasses - Sunglass Junkie* ||

As each day goes by I fall deeper and deeper in love with my iKrush platform beauties. I have actually worn them more or less every day this week! As some of you might already know, I moved to London at the weekend (ahhh) and I started my first placement with the Miss Selfridge design team on Monday so it has been pretty hectic! I visited Regents Park yesterday with my friend Hollie and managed to take some snaps of my outfit, but other than that I haven't really had much time to do any outfit snapping or posting at all (sorry!). This outfit is one that I actually snapped the day before I moved down here, I thought I would take a casual approach with this beautiful sequin skirt and pair it with a denim jacket, this outfit can also be a day to night look because when you take off the sunnies and the jacket the whole outfit is transformed! The skirt is another item that I have from the Lola Skye collection at Dorothy Perkins; you can find the jumpsuit I also have here. Both items are actually on sale right now with 30% off (a-ma-zing). Stay tuned for some more posts from London!

Burberry A/W 14 Ad Campaign

After attending the Burberry A/W 14 show, I was stunned too see their campaign for the upcoming season. Like the clothes spotted on the runway, the campaign has an artsy feel with hand painted dresses that have a water colour feel to them. The campaign also channels a romantic vibe which is sparked by the clever use of draping with floaty fabrics. There are no personalised ponchos in sight but of course, they couldn't miss out their signature Macs!

Knowsley Safari Park

|| Jumpsuit/Dungarees - Lola Skye at Dorothy Perkins* || Bag - Primark || Shoes - eBay - Miss KG ||

I had such a fab day on Monday, I took a break from getting myself organised for the big move to London on Sunday to go to Knowsley Safari Park which was absolutely brill. As well as obviously taking a million and one snaps whilst I was there, I also got chance to take a few outfit snaps of what I wore on the day. This jumpsuit/dungarees is from the new Lola Skye collection at Dorothy Perkins. I reckon it is perfect for layering; it was quite warm on Monday so there was no need to layer up, but I can imagine a little white t-shirt or even jumper would look gorgeous underneath it when it gets chillier. This tassel bag was a bargain at £12 from Primark. If you follow me on Twitter you may have seen me tweet about the possibility of a haul post but I have decided not to do that and to just wear the pieces I have bought in outfit posts. 
The shoes I wore are my fav bargain to date at £12 including postage and packaging on an eBay bid these Kurt Geiger (Miss KG) flats are to die for. Unfortunately they are 100% too small for me but I keep wearing them anyway even thought I have about 56707958323 blisters, in the hope that they will stretch (pleaseee stretch!) 

If you would like to see more of this outfit and some pictures from Knowsley Safari Park please keep reading.

All White Everything... Except the Bag

|| Crop top - Topshop || Skirt - Topshop || Bag - Topshop (last season) || Shoes - Dune (last season) ||

White seems to be all over the shops at the moment, in fact, in Benidorm, I even saw a shop with only white clothes in it. White on white has to be one of my fav looks this summer, it can be super flattering when you have a tan and the pieces you wear don't have to fully match because they are bound to look like they do anyway! I think anything high waisted with a crop top looks flattering on everyone because I find that the combination elongates the bottom half of your body.

Little White Dress

|| Dress - H&M || Leather Jacket - USC (similar here) || Heels - Peacocks (Similar here) || 
|| Necklace - H&M (similar here) ||

You can't go wrong with a white dress in the summer and this beauty is the perfect dress in my opinion! I wore this outfit just before I went on holiday to a party, I also wore it on holiday both in the day and at night too which means it can be quite versatile. It is quite a beautiful dress as the fabric is really thick which gives it quite a structured look at the bottom. The fabric is also ribbed which gives it a little bit of individuality yet it is simple enough to be worn in different ways. I am guessing you will be seeing a lot of this beauty on my blog. Here, I decided to pair it with my trusty black leather jacket to toughen it up and match it up with a black pair of pointed heels. 
I am wearing one of my favourite necklaces here which I bought about two years ago from H&M. I am not really much of a jewelry wearer as normally I like to keep things simple but I really love this piece, it isn't in stores anymore but you can find a similar spiked necklace here.
