Outfit of the Day – Warm Summer Christening

Outfit of the Day

Warm Summer Christening

The weather has been quite strange this summer where I live. One week I was wearing a jumper in the office, the next I was in a summer dress and sandals. It’s been humid and cloudy, we’ve had brilliant sunshine, we’ve had torrential rain. And I never really know what to wear to Christening’s anyway. I wanted to be dressy and look good, but it also needed to be respectable enough for Church.

Hen Party Night Out

So it was my sister’s Hen Party the other weekend and I wanted to do a quick Outfit of the Day post to share what I wore when we went out on the night. We went to the Dreamboys show at Leeds and then stayed in the nightclub there, so we all got dressed up.

Haul – Boots, Zara, Next, Fenwick and Candy Hero

Haul

Boots, Zara, Next, Fenwick and Candy Hero

It seems like a while since I’ve done a haul post, but this is the result of a shopping trip with my mum and sister the other week to York. We also went out for a really nice lunch while we were there and had an amazing time. I’m considering doing an Outfit of the Day post from this trip, let me know if you’d be interested. I did buy some Christmas presents, but these are the things I bought for myself. Quite a few of them I am classing as essentials. I think I’ve mentioned before but I’m in need of an entirely new winter wardrobe. I’m down to only two decent pairs of jeans and don’t have many smart casual tops which are decent to be seen in public with, most of the one’s I was wearing last winter are now so worn that they’re relegated to the lazy days spent curled up wearing only zone.

Haul – H&M, Zara, Superdrug, Boots and Candy Hero

Haul

H&M, Zara, Superdrug, Boots and Candy Hero

I took a shopping trip with my mum and sister the other weekend and I bought a couple things. And almost everything is something that I need, I’m trying to use up a lot of products I currently have at the moment and I’m doing really well with it.

But I do pretty much need a complete new winter wardrobe. So firstly from H&M I got a charcoal grey sweatshirt, which will be great for everyday casual wear. And it was only £5.99, a total bargain. They also had it in different colours, so if you’re looking for a sweatshirt I recommend you try H&M.

Outfit of the Day – Dolphin Watching and Cave Exploring Boat Trip on Holiday

Outfit of the Day

Dolphin Watching and Cave Exploring Boat Trip on Holiday

The main purpose of this outfit, was mostly about being practical. Towards the end of our holiday in Portugal, my parents and I went on a boat trip Dolphin watching and to see the local caves. We went with a company called Dolphin Driven and if anyone is going to Albufeira in Portugal then I highly recommend them. It was absolutely amazing, but it did present me with a bit of a dilemma about what to wear. While the weather in Portugal was hot while we were there, many days did start out quite overcast and cloudy, but still very warm and muggy, before the sun managed to burn through the cloud, and sometimes this took past midday. There was also a very strong breeze a lot of the time, which made it quite deceiving how warm it was at times.

Tag – 15 Things I Wouldn’t Wear – August 2014

15 Things I Wouldn’t Wear Tag

August 2014

I was tagged by the lovely Clare to do this tag (go and check out her blog if you haven’t already) back when I was on holiday in Portugal, so it’s took a while for me to get round to going this. Now these are just 15 things that I personally wear, it’s just a bit of fun. I’ve read a load of these posts and they aren’t meant to be taken personally, I’ve seen some things on posts I’ve read which I west fairly often, but if that’s something someone else wouldn’t wear, well that’s up to them. And if you see something on my list that you do wear, don’t let me stop you! This is just my personal opinion and these are 15 things that I won’t wear.

1. Toe-post shoes

I hate the feeling of having anything between my toes. Just, ugh! I only have one pair of flip flops for the beach which are really soft and I still struggle to get them on.

Haul – Zara, Topshop, H&M, Superdrug, Boots and Candy Hero – May 2014

Haul

May 2014

I have been such a shopaholic recently, which totally isn’t like me, and I have no excuse except that my younger sister is a bad influence when we go out. And as she’s the only sister I have I often can’t resist treating her to a few things, since I’m the one with more disposable income. Although one this trip to York I bought for us in some shops, and she bought for us in others. That’s just the way we end up doing things. A lot of what we bought was makeup once again, and in particular lip products, both my sister and I are obsessed with lip products at the moment!

Starting with Zara, I got this super cute light yellow t-shirt with a picture of a cactus on it and the phrase “I’m Awesome Hug Me”, which I just thought was so cute and I thought the colours in it are perfect for spring! I can’t wait to wear it with some pale jeans and sandals, if only the weather would cooperate! It’s definitely still too cold for sandals here at the moment!

April 2014

I’ve done so much shopping lately, and I don’t really have any excuse, but I thought I’d share what I’ve been buying recently. This is an embarrassingly large haul, but some of it my sister got me for Easter, so I don’t feel too bad, and some things I am classing as essentials. Also, due to my blogging schedule, things are things I bought in April.

Starting with H&M, I got this slightly oversized jumper with black writing and a picture of the Eiffel Tower on it. This was a total bargain at only £5.99 and it is so soft and comfortable.

Relaxed City Sightseeing on a Warm Spring Day

So this is the second Outfit of the Day post from my trip to Paris back at the end of March. This is the outfit I wore on our second and last full day in Paris, when we had a much more relaxed schedule than the first day. You can see my Outfit of the Day post for our first day by clicking here. On this day we went to the Palace of Versailles and then went in Notre Dame Cathedral on our way back to the hotel. This was my favourite day, I absolutely loved Versailles, particularly the gardens and especially the music gardens.
