New Additions | Beach Ready



Bikini Top Bottom

So these may just be the worst photos ever put up on this blog. Its raining and super gloomy so I am going to blame that and not my questionable photography skills!

The weather is miserable but these beauties just arrived through my door and my mind is in much sunnier climbs. I go away on holiday in two weeks and I could not be looking forward to it more.

Its no secret that I live in layers and layers of black clothes. And I mean all black all the time. And thats fine for me 95% of the time. However it tends to all fall apart for me when the temperatures rise. Head to toe black doesn't really work in the heat and I am going on a beach holiday! So I sought help in the Asos sale section.

I emerged three playlists, a pair of shorts and a bikini later. All for a very reasonable price I might add!
Aside from the black number none of these are really my usual style. But for a weeks holiday I don't really mind too much. I would much rather feel cool and comfortable than anything else.

I plan to do some sort of holiday style diary or something along those lines (provided I can rope a member of my family in to help me) so you may even get to see me in a bit of colour!

Photo Diary | Bowery Mural



I could Just stare at pictures of this all day. My phone was full of pictures of this multicoloured creation. Every time I walked past it I would take another one.

This particular mural isn't there anymore as this was months ago now. Is been painted over and is now something new.

You may be able to tell I fell head over heels in love with New York. Being there for 7 months was really one of the best experiences of my life and I bang on about it at any available opportunity. I really miss the city so so much and I hope it wont be too long before I'm back there.

Outfit | Duster Coat


Coat: H&M (sale)
Top: River Island (sale)
Shoes: Aldo
Bag: Bag Inc*
Glasses: Ray-Ban
Watch: Calvin Klein
Rings: Accessorize and Vintage
Necklace: Argos


I am so glad I came across this coat in the H&M sale for the bargain price of £20. Its a few sizes bigger than my actual clothes size but its pretty drapey (is that a word?!) and with the sleeves rolled up I think its pretty perfect. 
I now actually have 3 long duster style coats. I have been wearing the all the time with literally anything  and everything so expect some more post featuring them soon.

Unsurprisingly I seem incapable of pairing this particular coat with anything other than my standard uniform of all black. I mean its beige, that practically a colour in my book!

Photo Diary | New Views


We are going back a bit here but I am going to get the last of my New York pictures up if it kills me. During my last week in the city I visited the New Museum in Soho. I'd walked by it on so many occasions but never ventured inside.
There will be another post coming on the exhibition I viewed inside but how gorgeous are the views from the roof top.
I it looks a tad familiar I also posted this outfit from the same day a little while ago.

New York I definitely miss you!

New Additions | £10 Vagabonds




Wasn't I just saying I needed a new pair os sandals?! Well need might be a bit of an over statement but for the bargain price of £10 each  couldn't really say no.

Urban Outfitters are having a £10 'Yard Sale' promotion in stores on all sale under £40. So if its already reduced to £39 or less its now £10. So when I spotted these lurking in the sale section at work I had to snap them up.

Online they are running a similar promo, its 50% off all sale with the promo code 'YEAH50'. You can check it out for yourself here.

Combined the price of these should have been well over £120 so I am more than a little pleased with them.
What a Bargain!

Outfit | Backless


Bodysuit: Vintage
Belt: Spanish Market (on holiday)
watch: Calvin Klein
Shoes: Aldo

In a desperate big to inject some life into this blog I am resorting to Instagram pictures! I just haven't been on it with taking outfit snaps so apologies for the potentially terrible quality of the next couple of posts.

Hands up I don't go out very much. So when I do I try and get some sort of picture evidence! This time is thanks to my friend Matthews iphone 5 and can I say his superb outfit capturing skills.

I love this bodysuit and I really need to get some more high-res images of it as you really cant see any details here.
I am not a fan of low cut or cleavage baring garments but low or no back is just fine with me. It does pose the 'what on earth do I do about a bra' question but luckily for me going sans bra is not a problem. I just reach for some (deeply unattractive) adhesive backed nipple covers. I got these ones on eBay and they work just great for providing just a tiny but of  extra coverage. May seem like a bit of an over share but I have been asked a few times now about it.

These shoes however are so near the end of their life. I have worn them to death since buying them a year and a bit ago. I am on the look out for their replacement as several of the straps are so close to breaking.
They were well worth it and I know I could get another pair that are similar but I am on the look out for something a little different.

Wishlist | Urban





I know I may be a tad biased being that I work at Urban Outfitters. But in my opinion thy are just getting it so right for autumn winter. And by right I mean doing loads and loads of simple yet interesting black pieces!

These are just a few of the bits I currently have my eye on. Trust me there are a whole lot more.
As soon as pay day rolls around I am positive I will be making a purchase or two.

Also I am aware I have been very absent lately, having a bit of a blogging block but hopefully will be back on track with it now. Over thinking things never helps, best to just get on with it!

Outfit | Evening Wedding


Dress: H&M (sale)
Bag: Primark
Shoes: Sam Edelman
Necklace: Argos
Watch: Calvin Klein
Rings: Accessorize and Vintage

Not my usual for this particular post. As you are probably well aware I don't dress up very often. Not to this degree anyway but a friends wedding called for a fancy dress.

I picked up the dress in the sale in H&M for only £20. Not only was it quite the bargain but it is actually long enough. I'm not super tall but at 5'9 it can sometimes be a problem with maxi dresses. I didn't wear heels just my Sam Edelman Trina sandals that I got in New York.
With the addition of a bag from Primark for a mere £6, overall my outfit was rather cheap!

I did feel a little like a version of disco barbie wearing something so shiny and with my hair straight(ish) but I am just more used seeing myself more in more casual attire. And with less makeup!

Also the pictures were taken at night so thats why the quality isn't brilliant. Slightly blurry in the close ups but you get the idea!
