Pinterest Perfect Looks.

 photo pinterest loves_zps2htdgn6w.jpg
If there is one thing I love dearly, it is getting my outfit inspiration from Pinterest. One of the first boards I made was my Outfit Ideas ones, and it has served me well when I am in need of some fashion uplifting. Today I thought why not share my most recent favourites with you!

My latest style inspirations are shown above; a mixture of 1970's, preppy silhouettes and bright prints. I'm looking forward to Spring and the opportunity to be versatile with my personal style. Let me know what you think of the looks and check out the rest of my Pinterest for more inspiration.

Nothing and Everything

-Nothing and Everything-

Hey all, If you are a blogger you may be able to relate to this when I say sometimes coming up with a post title is so difficult! The reason behind today's one is because I just watched Marley and Me for the first time and it's one of those films that make you think of all the simple joys in life and what we take for granted. So when it came to writing this post it seemed redundant and useless. As I thought about it though, my blog and my posts are part of who I am so I knew it did mean something, even just to me. I read a great quote the other day; "Everyone should smile. Life really isn't that serious. We make it hard. The sun rises, the sun sets. We just complicate the process." I thought that was a really great way of looking at ourselves and putting things into perspective. Just a little food for thought if you have read this!

I went for a green eye liner make up looking after seeing colour liners are popular at London Fashion Week.

-Weekends-

I want to just express my love for weekends. I get to spend 2 uninterrupted days with my boyfriend and laugh all day long! We eat yummy food and spend the days being productive, just chilling at home or seeing friends and family. I also wear a different variety of clothes and put more effort into my looks. It's the weekends that make me like posting my outfits on here because I make more of an effort. Chucking on a denim shirt over a dress makes a nice change from always wearing cardigans! That's one thing I think difficult when styling is what to wear on top of things!! Especially in winter it can become boring with the same things. The dress is a petite one by Dorothy Perkins, from House of Fraser I always love the fit of the petite range. It's nice to wear a dress that is the right length and fits well. What do you like doing at the weekend and what is your favourite outfits to wear? I'd love to know in the comments.

Sorbet Seventies.

 photo IMG_0291_zpswkaaa7ds.jpg
This week I have been a bit deflated when it comes to my personal style and self confidence. You may have seen me talk about this on instagram. I don't want to dwell on those things at all because with the help of some amazing people around me and some of you guys who commented, I feel a lot more positive. This blog post is proof that even when going through a down time about things or going through some changes you can still find inspiration. My lovely blog friend Charlotte always gives me the best fashion advice and after a much needed chat the other day she made me realize it's in my own head that I don't like my personal style anymore. With that said I rummaged through my wardrobe and tried on lots of new combinations inspired by the current 1970's come back trends. I feel like I just need to breath new life into existing garments I own. So this outfit is a mixture of things I own already but I tried to mix them in ways I haven't before. Even better for those who can't afford new clothes (like me)!

-Vintage-

If you have been a follower of my blog since I started or even for the past few months, you will know vintage thrifting and styling has always been an interest of mine. I try to wear vintage or at least have elements of it in my looks. So with that said, I am loving the current 60's and 70's trends that are making their way on to the highstreet!

Beaded Top - Vintage (found in my aunties attic)!
Skirt - Vintage (Beyond Retro)
Tights - Primark
Shoes - River Island
Coat - She Inside
Bag - Accessorize
