About Me

My photo
I am 21, I live in London, I love clothes and I'm a bit of a slave to fashion. My friends know of my addiction to the latest trends and often ask me for my advice which I am more than happy to give(!) I also have a secret habit of styling people that I see on my travels, reinventing an improved style for them in my mind! I've been following a few fashion blogs but haven't really found what i've been looking for, so i've decided to create my own to share my ideas of style with anyone who is interested! I am a working girl on a tight budget (a healthy size 10) and clothes have to come at a price I can afford. I am hoping to show that it is possible to keep up with the trends with buys from the high street. So, I will be posting things that I would want to see in a blog. I hope you like it! I'd appreciate constructive comments. xx

What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger....

Leggings - Topshop
Denim Sleeveless Jacket - H & M
Creepers - Office
Hat - Topshop

I love these leggings!!! It's funny how you change your view on things, a few years ago if I saw these leggings there is no way I would ever consider wearing them but I can't get enough of them now!! It's the same with these creepers, I first saw them when my mentor at London Fashion Week wore them and I thought they were the most horrendous things I have ever seen but again absolutely love them now. I'm in North Wales for the week, I decided I need to get away from London to sort my life out. I'm trying to get myself a new job in the retail industry which definitely isn't as easy as I expected! Everybody wants previous experience so I do question how you are ever supposed to get into it? But I'm sure I will find a way.. I've got so much done since I have been here, London can be a very stressful place sometimes it's always nice to get away. I always seem to leave here feeling really motivated and stress-free! I think my positive mother has something to do with it, she always sorts me out! ;)

Pick 'a' Pastel

Pastel Colours

Think lemon sorbet, candy floss pink, rose, sky blue, spearmint and you're half way there. Delicious ice-cream colours are hot for spring/summer 2012. For those who want a slightly more sophisticated and grown up look then to quote from vogue "choose subtler, slightly washed-out pastels such as bitter lemon and dusty pink" This pretty palet is the perfect way to welcome summer.

Spring/Summer Fashion Trends 2012

Having explored the trends and colours for the up and coming season it is possibly one of my favourites to date....

The spring/summer season is definitely my favourite time to shop. I can't wait to wave goodbye to the winter blues and welcome the summer with open arms. Having spent several years growing up in spain I think it takes me back to those good old days and my happy care-free memories. I love the freedom that comes with the summer. No more having to worry about layering and investing money in chunky jumpers and coats. All we need do is throw on a cute pair of denim shorts that never seem to date and (infact may actually improve with age.) They simply need bringing into the moment with the current colours and trends.
