Sunshine, Daisies, Butter Mellow

Today it's March! Hurray! I feel like Spring has finally arrived as all day it has been sunny and fresh. We have even had the windows open in our flat and it's felt glorious. This weekend Chris and I have been busy packing up our belongings for our move which is now in 2 weeks. Other than that we have just been eating healthy food, going to the gym and this morning took a brisk spring walk. I didn't wear a coat for the first time even though I was probably pushing my luck, the chill felt nice with the sun on my face.

Cardie - Ebay
Floral Blouse - Miss Selfridge 
Denim Skirt - Vintage
Tights - Primark
Boots - schuh
I got this mustard yellow cardigan from Ebay last week and can't stop wearing it! I've always wanted one this colour as I think it suits vintage and floral dresses really nicely. It only cost me 99p from Ebay and i'm so happy with it. This colour especially works nicely with denim, so I teamed my vintage denim skirt and floral retro blouse with tights and boots for a laid back weekend look, perfect for Spring weather!

Pinterest Perfect Looks.

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.
