Outfit Diaries – A Walk In The Park

11A5039D-9FDC-45F6-AA5D-03D76E3EFA2E

Autumn is the perfect time for strolling through the park, admiring the gorgeous trees turning from vibrant green into hues of red and gold. I’ve always loved walking in my local park but it’s even better come autumn time as it feels even more beautiful than usual.

As my boyfriend Tom and I set out for relaxed Sunday stroll through the park I channelled the colours of autumn into my outfit and donned my new wine coloured cord skirt. I mentioned that I was searching for a cord skirt in my October Wishlist and I managed to find one in Primark. Unfortunately Primark don’t have an online shop but I’ve found alternatives here and here.

I paired this gorgeous (and very, very comfortable) skirt with a wine coloured floral top with a black cami top underneath. The top was also from Primark but I’ve found an alternative here.

I finished off the look with a camel coloured tailored coat, a necessity for autumn, and black chelsea boots, which I basically live in at this time of year. They’re so versatile and practical I believe that everyone should have a pair!

This was a stylish, yet practical, outfit for my autumnal park adventure and I can’t wait to spend another day exploring the acres of beauty in my local park.

Outfit Diaries – My 18th Birthday Party

IMG_8078

Sorry for the lack of blog post yesterday – I was absolutely exhausted and couldn’t muster up enough energy to write a post and to be honest with you, my eyes are closing typing this. I thought I’d update you on what I was wearing at my 18th birthday party which happened on Saturday 23rd September.

I wore this gorgeous dress from Chi Chi London, which I got through ASOS, and I’m head over heels in love with it. It has delicate lace sleeves (which don’t pop up on to your shoulders!), sheer neckline and a beautiful full lace skirt. I felt like a princess!

I paired this dress with my classic white block heels from Boohoo and a few special pieces of jewellery that I got for my birthday. My Pandora rose gold heart clasp charm bracelet, rose gold tiara princess ring and rose gold bow ring. They added the final touches to a very pretty, fancy outfit.

I’d just like to say thank you to everyone who came to my party who made it a great success and for everyone online who wished me a happy birthday, it’s much appreciated. Now, once I’ve recovered from all the partying I’ll be getting back into the swing of things with my blogging.

Outfit Diaries – My 18th Birthday

58942643-7EF6-4523-A488-6E52D111A09F

Yesterday was my 18th birthday (basically the best excuse ever to wear a pretty dress!) and I had a lovely day spent with my family and friends. I am extremely grateful for all the birthday wishes and presents from everyone and I couldn’t have asked for a better day. I thought I’d share what I wore for my special day with you all in a quick little blog post so that you can shop this beautiful dress.

This gorgeous dress (it’s unfortunately currently sold out but I’ve found incredibly similar ones here and here) has been on my wishlist since earlier this year when I first spotted it, then quickly put it on an expensive wishlist as it came in at £75 (a tiny bit out of my budget…) but it eventually came down to just £14.50 and I don’t think I’ve ever clicked the order button so quickly. I paired this stunning dress with these pink block heels from Primark and of course the obligatory birthday sash and badge.

I was lucky enough to receive a gorgeous Pandora rose gold heart clasp charm bracelet and an ’18’ charm from my parents and my sister and a rose gold bow ring from my friends. Paired with my Pandora princess ring I was fully adorned in rose gold!

I had such a wonderful day and I can’t wait for my party this Saturday.  Thank you to everyone who helped make it amazing!

Outfit Diary – Coleshill Carnival

BDD9516B-9C53-4898-82C1-BE40D8A9AB2F

When visiting my friends today we decided to head down and look at Coleshill Carnival, which we presumed would be a collection of cake sales and ‘hook-a-duck’ stalls, but we were met with big fairground rides and enough candyfloss to feed a small army!

I dressed rather casually for today’s day out with a simple denim skirt and light pink t-shirt with lace details. A denim skirt is an essential for anybody’s wardrobe as it is really easy to pair with any top and create an instant outfit. This one from H&M has a lovely button up detail which is bang on trend, they come a little big so I’d size down if you’re looking to buy one. This top, also from H&M, adds a pretty edge to the outfit.

With so many beautiful backdrops and colours this was a blogger’s paradise and I was channelling major Grease vibes when singing ‘You’re The One That I Want’ around the fun house. I’d forgotten how much fun a simple fairground was and it was an amazing day with even more amazing friends.

Outfit Diary – Lunch Date With My Boyfriend

3FF504AD-40C5-4172-A910-C2ED053FC12C

Whilst round my boyfriend’s house this weekend his mom treated us all to a delicious lunch at the darling little Window Box Café, the perfect place to visit for everyone who loves healthy, nutritious food. Also it’s possibly one of the most aesthetic cafés I’ve ever visited, which is always a bonus!

I had some jam sandwiches (okay, yes I know I said healthy food but this is me we’re talking about!), sweet potato and beetroot crisps, a salad pot and water distilled with lemon and mint. I couldn’t get enough. My body felt so energised and clean after the meal I couldn’t believe it. There’s quite a limited menu but that’s because all of their delicious food is homemade and carefully crafted.

As I wasn’t planning to shoot photos for a blog post today I wasn’t wearing current clothes but I thought I’d share it with you anyway as I still think it looks very chic and pretty. I will include links to alternatives I have found in shops so that you can recreate the outfit.

I wore this simple, white lacy dress (alternatives here and here) as it looks so clean and pretty, to match my pink brogues I put a pink, waterfall cardigan on top (alternatives here and here). This is great for cooler summer days as it is light while still keeping you warm. My infamous pink brogues made a reappearance, I swear these are part of 90% of my everyday looks (alternatives here). A new addition to my wardrobe was the pink neck tie I’m wearing here, I got inspired by Freddy Cousin-Brown, who in turn got inspired by old Hollywood starlets who used to wear these all the time. I love the classy vibe it creates and I’m definitely going to invest in more; this one from New Look can be found here.

Outfit Diary – Last Day Of Year 12

To celebrate the last day of school my friends and I went out for a meal together and I wore this super chic, summery outfit. I paired this black and white striped boob tube with these gorgeous high waisted shorts from ASOS. I fell in love with these shorts when I saw them on ASOS because they look so vintage and classy, it’s hard to find shorts that aren’t denim yet still look young and girly but these are perfect.

I’ve been searching for so long for my perfect pair of white heels and these are absolutely beautiful. I love the little detail on the back of the shoe, it adds such a pretty extra touch. They’re also a really wearable height whilst also being high enough to dress up, the perfect mix!

After enjoying a delicious burger at the Harvester I decided to take on one of their insane Freak Shakes. I chose the Sweet Shop one with bubblegum ice cream, cream, candyfloss, skittles and two lollipops aka sugar overload. It was so sweet I could barely finish it but it was definitely worth it! I’d definitely recommend popping down to your local Harvester and trying one.
