Barratts high top wedge trainers

I was very kindly sent these amazing shoes by Kieron from Barratts. Last year I bought my very first pair of high tops and I fell in love pretty quickly, for years I didn't own a single pair or trainers but this all changed when high tops came into fashion and even more so when they started making wedge trainers. I chose these studded pewter trainers as I have far too many boots and I am not a huge fan of flat shoes (I am only 5ft 3). In my mind they are the perfect shoe....comfy, stylish and they give me an extra few inches what more could a girl want! I absolutely adore the colour and I can't wait to do an outfit of the day wearing them. 

They have since been reduced on the site to £25 so snap them up whilst you can. Delivery was super fast and it is free for orders over £30. 

Are you a fan of wedge trainers like me? Do you own any from Barratts?

monochrome skater dress

Dress- Missguided
Shirt under dress- H&M
Boots- F+F
Earrings- Primark

I think this is only the second time this year my knobbly knees have felt fresh air, now its officially spring they should be out more but reality is after this picture I ran inside and put on my tights!!!!
This is my first ever Missguided purchase and I absolutely love it, I have worn it to work a few times and had some really nice compliments. I was raiding my wardrobe trying to find something bright to pair it with and decided to try this shirt underneath it and I love how it turned out. I bought this shirt last year and shamefully only wore it once but it now has a new lease of life...yay for wardrobe recycling.

I know I keep saying it but I am really embracing the monochrome/neon trend this year, luckily I have plenty of black and white in my wardrobe.

Do you love the monochrome trend as much as I do or are you bored already?

I dont want to be cheeky and ask too many times but I would absolutely love it if you could vote for me if you like my blog :)
Thank you x

break it down

Trousers and Top- Primark
Necklace- Vintage

When I asked my boyfriend whether he liked these trousers his response was...'Mc Hammer would be proud'!!! This wasn't the reaction I was looking for but I guess he has a point, I absolutely love them though and for £9 they didn't break the bank in the slightest. They are such a soft silky material and like most things in the shops at the moment, they fit in amazingly with the monochrome trend and prints are also going to be big again this spring. 

I am at my parents this weekend having a relaxing break from all the madness that's been going on during the last few weeks. I decided to have a raid through my some old jewelry in my bedroom and came across this gorgeous vintage necklace. I am definitely going to be wearing it a lot.

black on black

Skirt- River Island
Top- New Look
Earrings- Primark

I am really loving the crop top trend at the moment and considering Winter has decided to come back with a vengeance its a good job this one have long sleeves!!! Its especially good when you go on a night out wearing this particular outfit and you are sans coat. I wore this a couple of weeks ago for cocktails in Manchester and I got some lovely compliments about the ensemble. I am not a huge fan on full frontal in your face leather which is why I love this skirt, the leather around the hem is just subtle enough to add a bit of an edge to your outfit without looking like something from the matrix.

block colours and florals

Top and necklace - Forever 21
Trousers- Topshop
Boots- Tesco
Earrings- Primark

Yay or Nay for this outfit? I kind of love it but kind of hate it at the same time!!! I do definitely love this top though. It has a dip hem which you cant really see and the sides are a chiffon material, the neon colour is gorgeous too. I cant wait to pair it with some Topshop Joni's when I finally get my hands on some.

I was really excited to take some blog photos when I was off work on Friday, the weather however completely ruined this plan and I had to resort to indoor photos which are just pants. I might just pack my bag and head for the sunshine....who's with me??

I would REEAAALLLYYYY appreciate it if you could nominate me if you like my little blog :)

Top- Primark £5
Jeans- Topshop
Boots- Tesco

I have seen a few of these letter t shirts floating around and today whilst walking round Primark this one caught my eye for a fiver. I love the roll cap sleeves and the fact it fits right in with the monochrome trend, I'm now in search of a new neon necklace to pair with it.

Style feed- The world's top fashion blogs

Thoughtful gifts really are the best! I received this amazing book from my friend Laura for my birthday and I just love it, not just because its something I am passionate but it also looks gorgeous sat on my bedside table.  Admittedly the only time I usually read is on holiday or when I am reading cooking instructions on the back of a pizza box but that will all change now I have this lil fashion bible in my possession. There are so many amazing pictures to look at and its so interesting reading about how bloggers started out. I'd love to  have my own little spread in this book some day....(dream on Laura)!

I'm not sure how much it is but I know you can buy it from urban outfitters and waterstones. Do any of you guys own this book?

pastel paradise

I tried and tried to capture this AMAZING colour combination in all its glory but the camera just wasn't doing it justice. I didn't get along with Barry M's Gelly polishes at first but I decided to give them another go and fell in love. I really like the shine you get with them so no need for a top coat, WIN (I am impatient when it comes to nails). The angelica polish reminds me of a models own shade (not sure of the name) but it's just as good and comes without the nasty petrol smell, those of you who have used models own will know what I mean!

I think these two are a match made in heaven and are just perfect for spring.

Best of the sales #3

Shirt (h&m)- Oh hai pretty pastel floral print shirt. I really love this and it would be perfect for the transition into spring. I think it would look fab with the trews too.
Boots- I have had my eye on these shoes for a while on the Tesco website and now they are half price WOOOOO. An order has been placed and hopefully they will be mine soon.
Necklace- Check Matalan out being all fashion forward with this neon statement necklace and for £3.50 what a bargain!!!
Watch (asos)- cute..the end!
Trousers (h&m)- I love these wax look/leather/disco pant stylee trousers. I am not sure what they are trying to be but I think they are amazing and for £7 I certainly cant say no!

Top- Primark
Scarf- Gift
Jeans- Topshop
Boots- Tesco

As I work full time I usually take my blog photos at the weekend but the past few weekends have been so busy I haven't had the time to take any. This makes me sad as I love my little blog and wish I had more time to dedicate to it. Slowly but surely however the nights are getting lighter so hopefully soon I will be able to take piccies after work. I am also having a bit of a inspiration block with my wardrobe, the other day I changed 5 times just to go to the cinema!!

So I didn't feel like I was completely neglecting my blog I quickly snapped what I was wearing today before leaving to go for the mother of all roast dinners at the pub. The scarf was a gift from my lovely friend Becky, I love how it jazzes up a simple outfit and the purple round the edge adds a splash of colour. I used to wear scarfs all the time, they are such a good accessory and can be worn in so many ways.
