41. Pink And Pearls

Today I popped out for some lunch with my Mum, this is what I wore..

Necklace - H&M, Blazer - H&M, Jumper - NewLook, Bag and Shoes - Chanel, Jeans - H&M

I have wanted this necklace for ages but really wanted it to go in the sale as it was £10 and I think thats alot for what it is but yesterday I headed to H&M to return something and was told I could only exchange so it seemed a perfect opportunity to buy it as I wasn't really buying it if you know what I mean! I also got these black jeans while I was there as the have a zip fastning at the side, I have another pair from H&M that zip at the back and love the way they are flat across the front, I always hate the way the button jolts out at the front it can be really unflattering, these how ever are super flattering, really comfy and at only £10 a pair and available in loads of different colours I think I might be buying some more! I love the way this look is smart yet casual and comfy, perfect for days out when you still want to look nice with out making too much of an effort!

Also please remeber to check out my items for sale on eBay HERE, All ending on Saturday.

40. Leopard

This is an outfit I wore for a few drinks at the pub with my Boyfriend..

Top - George at Asda, Necklace - NewLook, Flatforms - River Island

I picked this top up last week from George at Asda, I'm constantly amazed at how good some of their peices are and it adds a bit of excitment having a browse whilst doing the food shop! The top was £8 which I think is so reasonable as its so versetile, It will look great with jeans, skirts, shorts, it is casual enough for day to day wear but the mesh shoulders make it look a bit more than your average tee so it is suitable dressed up for a night out.

I am also seeking some advice that I hope you girls can help me with! It is one of my good friends engagement party in two weeks and today the dress I had ordered for it arrived. I was so pleased with it and went to try it on immediatley and I cannot zip it up! Its not that it's too small as their is plenty of room when I hold the two sides together. Its just the zip gets too a certain point and will not move, it's where the waist band is stitched wich has been a problem on other dresses I have but they have always gone up with a bit of force! I really don't want to have to send the dress back as I love it and haven't seen anything else that compares to it, does anyone know anything that will make the zip move?!!

39. Rain Rain Go Away

Is any one else totally sick of this weather!?I can't belive we have rain every single day and it's July, buying summer clothes is pointless. I can't wait to be on holiday and get some sun.

Top - George, Necklace - Dorathy Perkins, Jeans - Newlook, Bag - Vintage, Boots - Garage

This is something I wore whilst running a few errand's yesterday.
I find it so hard dressing for this weather, I'm much more of a summer girl. I love this vest I picked up in the sale at George in Asda for £5. As its knitwear its perfect for warmer dressing but as its a vest can also be worn in summer, I love the colour and the metallic thread running thru it. I teamed it with some dark wash jeans, big necklace, studded boots and a leather jacket.

This weekend is free listing on eBay so I'm trying to list as much as possible to raise some spending money for my holiday, HERE is the link to my items if you'd like to take a look, I will be uploading more throughout the weekend :)

38. New Shoes

I really need to get back into the swing of posting more regularly, with work and preparing to move house I have been so busy!
I am usually a sucker for the sales but this year I have been really well behaved and only bought two things, I really need to try and save for my holiday in 3 weeks!

So this is what I bought.

Miss Selfridge - Was £58 Now £25

First up are these little beauties, I've had my eye on they for a while and after getting a gift voucher from the lovely girlies at work I went online to buy them at full price and to my luck they were less than half price, made an easy decision alot easier! I love the wooden heel with coloured leather, perfect combo! They will look amazing with denim shorts and a fringed kimono. All though they are the most uncomfortable things I've probably ever put on my feet with instant pain shooting through the ball of my foot with the addition of 'party feet' insoles it makes them, well, actually really comfortable, who knew floppy gel things could make such a differece, thank heavens for them as I dont think I could face sending them back. Love them love them love them.

River Island - Was £55 Now £25

Another pair I'd spotted a while ago and fell in love with, I love the pastel colour and the delicate straps make them so lady like but the mirrored pannel gives them a harsh edge and such a designer/expensive feel. After finding a pair of sandals that my Mum had mentioned she wanted a while ago in the sale and her birthday coming up I couldnt resist buying these aswell to make the most of paying for postage, an excuse I often used for buying too many things online!

Confetti Converse - ASOS

Not a sale purchase but my lovely boyfriend suprised me with these today! After mentioning I'd wanted them a while ago I finally got them. This is my first pair of Converse and I'm happy I'm finally joining the club, love the confetti print, so cute. Comfortable and stylish, god only knows why I havent got any sooner!
