New purchases!

Standard

new-1

So I went shopping the other day and thought I’d share my purchases.

1. Lace top from Hollister Co. £28 (it’s called orange county). Looks cute tucked into a floral skirt or with skinny jeans.

2. Floral t-shirt from Warehouse. £25 (part of Fashion Targets Breast Cancer- 30% of price donated to breakthrough breast cancer)

3.  Cream gypsy top from Miss Selfridge £28. Lovely floaty sleeves!

4. I included this tee in my California-Cool post. £15 from River Island

 

Looking forward to some good weather so I can wear them with some nice shorts/skirts instead of jeans and cardigans/jackets!!

Peplum

Standard

So I won a competition the other day, the prize was a peplum top. I’ve been meaning to write a post about the peplum trend for a while, so now I own a peplum top I thought I should finally write this!

Here’s the top I got (£12 from cindersfashion.co.uk)

To be honest I’ve not been sure about the peplum trend and whether it is flattering but after getting this top I’ve found it cinches you in at the waist (also covers up the tummy bulge!) and flatters the hips nicely (well this particular top does anyway!) I wear mine with a black bodycon skirt and nude heels for a classic look.

 

I spotted this skirt in Look magazine for £29.99, Zara. Really cute colour for the summer, would look great with some floral wedges.

I haven’t seen this dress in person but it looks pretty gorge to me. Will be adding it to my shopping basket shortly I think! £25, River Island

Lipsy never fails to impress with their dresses, and this black peplum doesn’t disappoint with it’s lovely lace back detail, £55.

California-Cool!

California-Cool!

Bit late with this post as we all probably know the whole laid-back california-cool club tropicana look is in this season but I’m feeling the need for a holiday, which inspired me to finally write it!

So here are some lovely things I’ve found which tie in with this trend.

This top from Lipsy is great for flinging over denim hotpants for a laid back look, £28.

Sparkly things!

Standard

So I got an email from A Wear today and there was a lovely embellished top which inspired me to write this post about pretty sparkly tops!

So here’s the top from AWear that caught my eye £50. So pretty and the scalloped edge is very on-trend.
