Leopard Print Skirts


Leopard Print Skirts


Lately I've been obsessed with prints. One of my most recent obsessions is leopard print! There's something fun and feisty about leopard print clothing. On my numerous shopping trips I keep on spotting leopard print clothing everywhere. From fluffy cosy coats to short shorts, leopard print is literally everywhere! 


So I decided to make a few purchases of the leopard print kind! However they seem to be similar as these ones are both leopard print skirts. I've paired these skirts pretty similarly with the same jumper.

Leopard Print Skirt



So here's the first one. This is a lighter shade of brown and is from Topshop. It has a fake kind of belt detailing on the skirt and it's just seriously so comfy to wear. I love the brownish colour of this skirt and the way the print really stands out.

The next one has a fur kind of texture to it, this is from Miss Selfridge and is a little shorter. This kind of leopard print is a little bit more sophisticated due to its darker tones, so if you're looking for that tiny bit of edge this is the kind of leopard print for you!

Both skirts have been paired with my black jumper from H&M and the first skirt has been paired with my favourite over the knee boots of the season from River Island. Literally these over the knee boots are so perfect, I want to wear them 24/7.

Let me know which skirt you prefer and if you have any more leopard print recommendations let me know! Because I'm literally obsessed.

Over the Knee Boots




Over the Knee Boots


Over the knee boots are huge this year and I am so happy about this because I totally love wearing them and styling them to make so many different outfits perfect for fall. Over the knee boots can really take a plain outfit and add that extra something to it. 



I recently bought these over the knee boots from River Island. I am so obsessed with them and they are seriously comfy. I always have a problem buying over the knee boots because they are usually too baggy on my thighs. However this pair is perfect as they can be pulled in using the ties. So I highly recommend them if you have the same problem.  


Here I have styled the boots with a cape I bought last year as well as a black top and black skirt from Zara. 



This beautiful bag is from Coach. It is part of their new fall collection and the embellishment on it is so beautiful.

Capes and boots are so perfect for staying warm and cosy for this time of year.



I've also teamed my over the knee boots with some tights here. Another black and white outfit! 



Are you wearing over the knee boots this season?

Topshop Stripe Popover Romper

Recently I was in Topshop and fell in love with this Stripe Popover Romper. The cold shoulder and stripes totally sold me! The cut of this romper means its so comfy and I just love the flouncy vibe it gives off. 
I totally feel that the colours of this romper are such an unusual combination but totally work. Rompers are super handy for the hot and humid days here in Florida.
I paired this romper with my favourite white Zara heels of course, but it would totally work perfectly with a pair of open toed sandals or flip flops if you're a lover of flats!

Topshop is totally winning in my wardrobe at the moment! Do you have any romper favourites?

Styling Embroidered Shorts


Styling Embroidered Shorts



Embroidered Floral Shorts Topshop

Embroidered shorts really do add that touch of something special to the usual denim short and top combination. These shorts have a beautiful floral detailing which makes them perfect to pair with other plain pieces.

Embroidered Floral Shorts Topshop

I've paired these Topshop shorts with a plain low cut white cami from River Island. This is a staple top which is perfect for mixing and matching. I've also worn this with a lovely long light grey duster jacket from River Island. I love this look and feel that the duster jacket really adds length to the outfit as a whole. 

Embroidered Floral Shorts Topshop



The whole look is completed with my favourite white shoes from Zara. I'm still wearing them with everything! These shoes or any other heels will really elongate your legs, especially as the shorts are high waisted.
Floral detailing really is so beautiful for this time of year, I don't think I've ever owned such a pretty pair of shorts!

Sephora Masks

Sephora Masks


Sometimes we all need one of those at home pamper days. On a recent trip to Sephora I picked up two products. A honey eye mask and a lavender foot mask. Both of these are from Sephora's own line and are such a bargain price for that perfect tlc at home.

Sephora eye mask


First up is the honey eye mask. This comes in a bright orange/yellow pack and this one specifically focusses on nourishing and balancing. It consists of two patches and you apply one under each eye. You leave them on for 15 minutes and then remove the excess. The result is that my eye area feels smoother and more nourished. Not bad for only $5.


Sephora foot mask

Secondly this is quite possibly my favourite foot mask ever. This is the Sephora collection lavender foot mask.  This particular foot mask is for refreshing and relaxing, and it definitely does just that. The heat and humidity really takes its toll on my feet and sometimes they end up swelling especially after a hard day walking. Its also perfect for those days where you just want something soothing and relaxing. This foot mask is the perfect way to relax and chill after a busy day on your feet. The lavender scent is of course very calming and relaxing in its self. You pop these little boots on, massage slightly, rest up for 15 minutes whilst they work their magic. For $5, it's a little slice of heaven as they really do work. They leave your feet feeling moisturised and kind of refreshed. I love these so much that I think I might have to make them a weekly ritual.

Do you like any masks from Sephora's own line?

Boho Vibes


Topshop Embroidered Bardot Midi Dress


I'm a lover of easy breezy dresses for summer. They're great for keeping cool, comfy to wear and still look effortless at the same time. I recently purchased a beautiful embroidered bardot midi dress from Topshop. Of course it's in my favourite summer colour white!!! I adore the embroidered overlay on the top of this dress, it's seriously pretty and as it's a bardot cut, the detailing is shown off even more. This dress does come in at the waist and unlike others I've tried in the past, it flows down perfectly.  The midi length is also finished with some more lace detailing on the hem. 


Topshop Embroidered Bardot Midi Dress

This dress is so perfect to wear in the warmer months and does the speaking for itself so you can totally wear it with minimal accessories. 

I'm so happy that I've finally found a longer summer dress without a massive split down the side of it. As much as they look incredible in still shots and calm conditions, the reality is you're forever holding down your dress to avoid an awkward breeze!

I adore this dress and it's now totally one of my favourite dresses of the season.

Origins Ginger Products


Origins Ginger Products


Ginger is quite possibly one of my favourite flavours ever! I love anything ginger scented, and my ginger obsession doesn't stop there! Ginger foods whether its pickled ginger, ginger cookies or ginger green tea are also way up there. So when I came across Origins line of ginger flavoured products, I just had to try them.


Origins Ginger





This Ginger Burst savory body wash is a seriously refreshing shower gel and it smells incredible! It is somewhat moisturising and lathers beautifully. It energises but yet still at the same time feels calming and soothing. For anyone who is ginger obsessed, this is a MUST!

Origins Ginger Burst


I decided to try the Ginger Gloss smoothing body oil too. It was either this or the body cream, but I own way too many body butters and I wasn't sure if any could ever beat my favourite Laura Mercier body souffl├ęs

Origins Ginger Gloss

I apply the ginger gloss after my shower and it certainly locks in the moisture. This is especially amazing as the Florida heat and humidity can be so drying on your skin. After using this body oil, I'm left with glossy, smooth and glowy skin. Once again the ginger scent just melts my heart! 


So if you're ginger obsessed or just want to try some new body products, these are definitely great ones to try.

Have you ever tried these ginger products from Origins?

Off The Shoulder Outfit



Off The Shoulder 

Bloomingdales Off the Shoulder top

My latest obsession is definitely off the shoulder tops. I especially love pairing them with a pair of white skinny jeans. It totally creates that perfect day time look. One of my latest off the shoulder tops is this blue and white striped one from Bloomingdales. I feel that matching this top with white jeans just elongates the whole look due to the white stripe. It's a lovely and light top which is perfect for those super hot summer days. These white jeans are my go to Topshop jeans for summer and they literally go with everything!
I've finished this look by pairing it with my beautiful wedges. They just add that little extra something and totally make a simple day time outfit ready for a lovely summer dinner.

Pineapple Faves



Pineapple Faves


I wanted to share with you a few of my pineapple favourites! Pineapples just take summer to a whole new tropical level!



Sunnylife Pineapple Lights



I've always been a lover of fairy lights and sadly I've just had to say goodbye to a set of my favourite flamingo ones. They had been living on my balcony but the sunshine in Florida made their bright pink colour fade, and some thunderstorms also filled my poor flamingos up with water. Probably not the best combination for a working light! So I've recently invested in a new set of fairy lights and judging by the title of this post, I'm sure you've guessed that they're pineapples!

These fairy lights are from Sunnylife. I've totally been eyeing up their pineapple float too. I just love the tropical fun vibe that these lights create, perfect for a summer party, bbq or just to put you in that exotic tropical summer mood.







I also found the perfect beach bag from Francesca's closet. Of course it has a pineapple on it! I love this shop, I'm always finding something fun from there and their accessories section is just the best. This bag (in the top picture) was actually in the sale which made it a million times sweeter.

So if you want to know where I am, I'm at the beach with my pineapple!





Have you seen any pineapple related things lately?

Summer Outfits



Summer Outfits


As it's summer my love for white outfits has been at an all time high! There's just something about summer which makes me want to reach for anything white. Clothing or accessories, I'm white obsessed!



Dorothy Perkins top

This outfit is a skirt and top combo (but everyone actually thinks it's a dress!). The top is just fuelling my cold shoulder vibe. I've been loving wearing off the shoulder tops lately, so this cold shoulder one mixes up my outfits. I adore the detailing on this top and it was such a great find from Dorothy Perkins as it literally goes with so much.
The skirt was such a great buy from H&M. It's a tight fitted textured short skirt but it just seems to flare in the right places. Plus because it's elasticated it's very comfy. 

Banana republic dress


Another summer obsession of mine is stripes! This dress is from the Banana Republic outlet, so of course that made it such a steal! It's super smart but casual at the same time. Definitely a perfect one for work due to the length of it. It can also be dressed down and would go perfectly with a lovely pair of jewelled sandals. I've paired it with my favourite sun hat for a total stripes look!

Summer Dresses



Summer Dresses


As it was the first day of summer yesterday, I thought I would share with you a few of my favourite summer dresses. Whilst the weather might actually be stopping you from wearing these in the UK at the moment, they're perfect for those freak summer days or even holidays which you may have planned.

Topshop Palm Print Slip dress


This Topshop Palm Print Slip Dress is one of my absolute favourites. I am totally palm tree obsessed so this dress without a doubt would end up in my wardrobe! It's a super comfy and summery dress and looks great with either sandals, wedges or heels.

Another summer dress love is this one from River Island. It's a red floral bardot dress which is so easy and breezy for beaching around. It's a great day dress for sightseeing and the floral print just screams summer.

Lastly is this super fun embroidered dress from Zara.  It's so cute and adorable. So perfect for a holiday or a day at the beach. I've paired it with heels here but it definitely can be worn with flip flops!

All these summer dresses have me missing the sun! Can it just be super sunny already!

Summer Essentials


Summer Essentials


Summer is well and truly on the way. I've recently been to Dubai and the 100┬║ temperatures really ignited those summer vibes!

So I thought it was the perfect time to share a few summer essentials.

I've been loving off the shoulder dresses. Especially ones in denim! They're so easy and light to wear and extremely versatile too. Perfect for those strolls on the beach or a browse around the shops.

These are my two favourite denim dresses.

The top two are the same ZARA denim dress.

This darker denim bardot dress is from Warehouse.

I've also been loving these slogan sun hats. Protecting yourself from the sun with a large floppy hat is a must. This hat reads "Come Sail Away". It's super comfy and floppy and great to hide yourself from the world whilst you just relax underneath it!

Pom Poms



Pom Poms 


So I'm sure you've been seeing Pom Poms everywhere lately! A few months ago I probably wouldn't have described myself as a pom pom person, but lately I seem to be loving them!

The bright colours of the pom poms are so fun and creative for the summer months and definitely add that pop to any outfit.

So here are two of my latest pom pom purchases.


Boohoo Pom Pom dress



Firstly this dress is from Boohoo, there was something which I just couldn't resist about it! It's a short black off the shoulder dress, with Pom Poms galore! It's so cute, comfy and perfect for a little holiday dress. I love off the shoulder clothes, they make me feel even more summery! This dress would go perfectly with a pair of flip flops. Super casual and super fun!



Boohoo Pom Pom dress




The next pom pom purchase of mine was these pom pom tie up sandals. When I saw them, I loved them! In fact these are actually from the ZARA kids department, so if you have little feet like me, these could be for you! I'm actually really happy with them because the lace doesn't come too high up your calf as the lace is a bit shorter, so they definitely don't make your legs look shorter. I think they go up to a UK size 4 or 5. Match these with a pair of shorts or a summer dress and you're good to go. Maybe not a pom pom detailed one though, that might just be pom pom overload!

Today's outfit of the day is making me super excited for summer.

I absolutely love this dress, it's from Dorothy Perkins and is so cool and easy to wear. I've paired it with this light Zara coat/cardigan. In these shots I've matched it with my Zara white shoes, which you've probably seen before because I wear these with everything! They are so comfy and well they literally match every outfit!!!!!

This look can totally be dressed down, it's perfect for those warm days when you're just running errands or sightseeing. Put on a pair of pumps and you're ready to take on the day.

ZARA Forget Me Not Fragrance



ZARA Forget Me Not Fragrance


My obsession with Zara isn't just limited to their clothes and their shoes. I recently picked up a new perfume from there called 'Forget Me Not'. The bottle is this beautiful pale blue shade and the pastel shade totally screams Spring. 



ZARA Forget Me Not Fragrance



This particular scent is such a gem. If anything it reminds me of the Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. Except this is a fraction of a price at £7.99. It's fresh and light with floral, fruity, and musk tones. I always love Zara's fragrances, I think their quality is exceptional and this scent is so perfect for the spring and summer season.

Have you tried this fragrance/ have a favourite fragrance from Zara?

River Island Yellow Skirt


River Island Yellow Skirt



I've been loving getting my summer wardrobe ready and nothing says summer like a bright yellow skirt. It's definitely sunshine in a skirt! This skirt is from River Island and I'm absolutely in love with it. As you can see it's a midi wrap skirt which is so light, easy and breezy to wear. I love the way it hangs and feels so perfect to wear especially on those summer evenings. Florida has already hit 90 degrees this year so no doubt I'll be getting a lot of use from this! It really is that pop of colour which you want to infuse into your summer outfits without going too overboard. In this shot I've paired it with this black pleated top from Zara. This top literally goes with any outfit, in fact I even have a similar one in white because they're those wardrobe staples which you just need!


The shoes are also from Zara, they're super comfortable and I could totally wear them all day long. Being white they literally go with any outfit too!

Striped dress


Striped Dress


Striped dress







I can't quite believe that it's Friday again and that we're almost halfway through February already! Soon it'll be Spring, so I'm already feeling those Spring vibes and cracking out the lighter coloured clothing. This outfit is so pretty and can totally be dressed up or down depending on how you want to wear it. I've decided to team it with my Nine West booties because I'm obsessed with them. When you find a comfy shoe, it's pretty hard to beat!

This pink ribbed dress is from H&M and is bang on trend as it's all about the stripes! I just love the shades of this dress as it lifts my complexion and makes me feel just a bit more like it's time for Summer!
I've also seen they sell it in a top form, so if a dress isn't for you and you prefer a top and jean combo definitely check it out!

What have you bought in preparation for the new season?
