Style: Live Unlimited Look One

Hello! Looking for the perfect jacket to see you through the party season? Well look no further! This pleated soft jacket from Live Unlimited definitely meets the criteria. And you can now buy the range directly from their new website so there's no excuse! 

It's soft and unstructured. Great for partying and meals out because you won't feel restricted, but the pleats make it feel really dressy. I guess you could say I've gone for quite an androgynous look here with the shirt and trousers, but given it a feminine feel with the earrings  and strappy shoes. 

This is going to look great over a strappy midi, jumpsuit or jeans and came top. It's really versatile and because it's lightweight it will see you through the year. I'm wearing the 22 which is true to size. The fabric is a soft woven fabric, so there is no stretch in it, but because it's unstructured, you don't really need to worry too much.

Style: A Dash of Grey

Christmas is nearly upon us and I have finally given into the reality that it is in fact winter. And thank goodness I did because I forgot how much I love wrapping up in cute knitwear. And the latest range from Dash is packed full of gorgeous pieces up to a size 22. 

Now, my one memory of Dash, is those colourful rugby style tops that my friend's posh mum used to wear, Dash of 2016 is very different indeed. It's cool, casual and quality. My favourites are the abundance of striped breton-style tees, which are, in my opinion, an absolute wardrobe essential. 

This week however, as mentioned, I am delving into their knitwear selection, and this grey cowl neck jumper is so perfect. It's got a scandi-cool feel about it. I've styled it really simply with black treggings, shell toe trainers and grey maxi coat.

The 22 is true to size, and sits just on the hip. The neck is described as cowl, but it sits a little higher because of the chunky knit, which I love because I'm not a huge fan of a big old baggy cowl necks. This is going to look great with jeans, or even a pencil skirt. You could rock a mini skirt and thick black tights with it too, that would be so cute. 

So now I am going to tackle the wrapping, and hopefully bring you some cool posts over the festive period!

Style: Longline Bomber - PinkClove

Helloooooo! How are we all this fine week? It's my birthday on Friday so I'm feeling a tad excitable! The fella is taking me to London, then onto Prague, I am SO excited!! Speaking of the man friend, we nipped into town the other day with Pops to grab a cuppa and some grub, and I gave my new longline bomber from PinkClove an outing! 

It's a beauty isn't it? So easy to wear, this is going to look great over a jumpsuit, a slip dress or joggers. It's just one of those jackets that goes with everything. I'd personally keep the lines straight and clean, avoid a-line/poofy skirts with it, but other than that you're good to go! 

I've teamed mine with ASOS rollneck, New Look Jeans and Adidas shell toes, by the state of my jeans though I think I might need some new ones. There's ripped and then there ripped haha!!  

I'm hoping to get another post up before I go away, and I'll apologise in advance for the instagram spam now, it'll be intolerable haha!! Have a great week guys x

Style: Glamour and Glitz

Probably not words you'd associate with me, but I do occasionally like to get my glam girl on, and this dress from Want That Trend is helping me achieve that. If you're not familiar with the brand they have an amazing selection of dresses at super affordable prices, it's fast fashion that's loads of fun! 

It might not be clear from the pics, but the lines on the dress are made up from diamant√©, which would normally be my idea of hell, but for some reason, it just works! I love it! I'm wearing the size 24, I normally take a 22, but I needed to size up on this one, and even then it is still sung, but it is a body con style so it's not going to be baggy is it? 

It comes just past my knee (I'm 5'7") so it can be worn without tights, although in the weather I'm not so sure haha!! It's a fab dress for a night out with the girls, loads of fun and a bit flirty... a bit like me!

Style: When Beebs Graduated...

I did it! I did it! Three years of blood, sweat and tears (mainly the latter) and I passed my degree with first class honours. To say I'm proud is an understatement to be honest! I was and still am utterly overwhelmed that I even did it and got through it. 

All of which is good and well, but we mustn't forget the most important factor, what the hell was I going to wear to graduation? Well, Simply Be to the rescue thank goodness, with this gorgeous Hole Mesh Dress

I was a complete flappy mess on the day, I felt so nervous I nearly threw up, and then I found out I'd won an award too, so the whole thing was a complete blur, which means I don't have any pics of me just in the dress, but I do have a couple of me in my gown with the gorgeous dress underneath! 

A huge thank you to Simply Be for being my fairy godmother, and I did indeed go to the ball feeling confident and well dressed. Hoorah!

Style: LBDs from House of Fraser

The festive season is upon us and there's nothing quite like the classic little black dress to see us through all those parties and meals. So I have a had a good poke around the House of Fraser website and picked out some of my favourites, and of course, true to form I've thrown in a cheeky lil jumpsuit for good measure. 

Lost Ink Curve Bodycon Dress With Cape Back Now £29.40 Was £42.00

I just wanted to pop a quick note about this brand, Lost Ink. I've only just discovered them, but wow I just love every piece, and they go up to a size 26. Their pieces are so cool and stylish, I think I'm going to have to buy them all. Seriously. 

Studio 8 Sydney Dress Now £105.00 Was £150.00

Studio 8 have been around a little while now and although they are at the pricier end of things, the quality of design is undeniable, this lace dress is utterly dreamy.

Linea Lace Sleeve Jumpsuit £79.00

 Dude. It's a jumpsuit, it has lace sleeves.. need I say more?

AX Paris Curve Long Sleeve Lace Midi Dress Now £40.00 Was £50.00

I love the 60s retro feel of this one, top tip, size up with AX Paris though.
