Oversized Blouse

|| Blouse - Zara || Skirt - Topshop (Ebay) || Boots - New Look (Last Season) ||

I seriously don't understand how these photos ended up being such bad quality! Same camera and all but I am guessing that it must have been the lighting as it was quite a cloudy day! Because of this though, you cant really see the beauty of this skirt. I picked this little number up on Ebay a couple of months back and I adore it! It is a jersey bodycon midi skirt that has a layer of netting over the top. It was originally from Topshop for probably a lot more than the £6.00 I paid - the beauty of Ebay! I also have to apologise as the last time I blogged was over a week ago, I am having a week break from finishing at Miss Selfridge last Friday and starting at French Connection on Tuesday so thought I'd visit home for five days, and forgot my camera... The perfect blogging opportunity too! 

Until next time,

Chiara Fashion Kimono Style Challenge

|| Kimono - Chiara Fashion* (Similar here) || Caged Body - Miss Selfridge Sample ||
|| Leather Skirt - Vintage || Shoes - Primark ||

Can I just start by saying that my last post was actually my 100th! How did I not realise? It does not seem like it has been over a year since my first blog post, yet looking back, both my blog and my style have changed so much. In this time, I have gained 530 beautiful followers (on Bloglovin'), I have met some lovely people, been given amazing opportunities and was even shortlisted for an award! This all wouldn't have happened without you (the people who read my blog). Not that I will only ever post if people read, because that is not true at all, but peoples kind words and support can mean everything when I am feeling a little down, whether it is just in general or lack of confidence/motivation about my blog. So thank you. A lot. 

My 101th (th?) post is a style challenge! I don't think you will come across any style challenges in the past 100 posts, so when Chiara Fashion contacted me and asked me to get involved, I went for it. After all, who doesn't love a Kimono? I chose this gorgeous floral number and paired it with black and white, I think a statement piece like this is best to be paired with something not too fancy or it will loose its magic. I have actually been after a new Kimono for a while now and when I saw this one, I instantly fell in love. I especially love the length - long and flowy is perfection to me! It has literally just sold out (must be cause it is so beautiful ey!) but there is one in a similar colour which you can find here with the floral print, tassels and flowyness still involved!

OOTD / What I Did Today / Street Style!

|| Top/Dress - H&M || Skorts - Zara (last year) || Boots - New Look (v old) || Daisy Bobble - Topshop (similar here) ||

Bit of a mish mash post for you today! The other day, I met up with some friends at Oxford Circus and decided to take some snaps of my outfit, little bits of scenery, ice cream and some stylish ladies! The dress/ top I am wearing here is one of my many bargain buys, at £15 it was just too good to miss. It is structured almost like a crop top and then the splits down the side make it blow so beautifully in the wind. There was actually only a size 14 in stock which in reality is far too big for me but I think I can get away with it being quite big and extra flowy. I have paired it with my fav pair of white skorts because I think they look really lovely showing through the sheer black fabric and peeking through the side slits of the top. I decided to pop my daisy bobble on my wrist because I basically just love it and I didn't want to put my hair up! 
To see more about my day etc please keep reading! 

 These boots are defos in need of a clean! Sorry!

60's Style Dress

|| Dress - Miss Selfridge Sample || Bag - Primark || Boots - New Look ||

One of the perks that comes with being on work experience at Miss Selfridge is that sometimes you get a few freebies! This dress is one of the samples that I came home with the other day and I just love it so much! It is such a sixties dress and I love the cute flower print on it. The collar is really lovely too, I have always loved peter pan collars and I absolutely love the touch that the coral edge gives to it. 

Thank you for reading,
