culotte'ing it

Sleeveless jacket - Newlook
Sleeveless shirt - River Island
Culottes - Topshop
Heels - Dorothy Perkins
Bag - F&F
Hair extensions - eBay

I wore this outfit for an important meeting today and received quite a few compliments on it so due to nice weather and having 2 seconds to myself I thought I'd share it with you all! Its also one of those outfits that refuses to be photographed and makes you look chunky from every angle - anyone else struggle with this!? any who, anything high waisted sits well on my figure and culottes are a great transitional piece when the weather is playing up! This is one of five million of these jackets I own.. I must stop! Its my mam's birthday monday so I've been sorting that out all weekend

What items are making you're transitional wardrobes?

70s vibes

Shirt : A&G
Mac & Shoes : Newlook
Jeans : River Island
Bag : Mulberry

About a week ago Daniel & I visited the Alexandra Palace in London to go to the Great British Tattoo show, despite having 8 tattoos I wore a really covered up outfit which got me some really confused looks by the rest of the uber tattooed crowd. Needless to say we had an amazing day and I had massive tattoo envy of nearly everyone in the room, we didn't know you could actually get tattooed at the convention so were planning to get some work done when we go again next year. I'm infatuated with this shirt that I got from work a couple weeks ago, I've been feeling super 70s in most of my outfit choices lately and this is no exception. ALSO, if you're looking for jeans - River Island is my new favorite the quality and colour is far surpassing my usual Topshop offerings!

What have you been doing with you're weekends?

Vest, jeans and sunglasses : Newlook
Waistcoat : Cameo Rose
Trainers : Adidas Superstars
Bag : F&F

You know when you just fancy a real treat? not a thrifty Primark splurge but a real satisfying buy - these superstars were that for me. If you live / work / reside in London you'll have probably seen superstars everywhere and I've succumbed to the trend ever since Pharrell launched his multi coloured beauties I've had my eye on a pair - unfortunately i rarely invest in anything other than black or white footwear (so that i can wear it all the time) so no bright coloured numbers were meant to be. Then the plain white made my feet look really bulky .. THEN I ventured into office on my lunch break and as soon as these were on my feet they were mine. I've been experimenting with trainers in outfits alot lately as there so comfy for work. This is my most fave combination so far.

What footwear have you been lusting after?

Mac Collab : Ellie Gouldings' offering

Whenever I find out any future mac activity and post about it, they always become some of my most viewed posts.I've just discovered the news that Ellie Goulding is the next to join the long list of celebrities collabing' with mac. The partnership was announced on the 4th of June via Ellie's instagram. Whilst the likes of Miley Cyrus had raunchy, raw campaigns Ellie's offering is alot more retro glam and the product preview shows some really gorgeous and wearable products - however were going to have to wait till December for this one guys! - BUT HEY, its never to early to start writing a christmas list is it!? The collection images released so far features a super wearable pink lipstick, a glittery gloss, a rose lip crayon, a neutral eye quad, false lashes and a bronzer/blush duo which are noticeably available in most collections ... I'll be making a bee line for the quad that's for sure!

What do you think of Mac and Ellie Gouldings' collab?
