OOTD | All my life I've been waiting for someone like you

Dress : Boohoo | Necklace : Primark | Boots : Simply Be | Lips - Russian Red | Phonecase  c/o : Iconemesis

Laziness is definitely upon me, I was meant to have this post up last week but I've been in one of those I know I should, but I really can't be asked moods recently. Lol, it's half term now so there's really no excuse (other than the fact I need to have my personal statement done by the end of the week..!)  boo. On a brighter note, I got accepted on to AcessAllASOS - I'm officially an ASOS Insider! I'm so excited for all the opportunities that are to come :)

Anyways.. a couple of days ago I went on the hunt for a dress with sleeves and a cheap price! I then came across this beautiful smock dress for £12 on Boohoo. I usually only wear skater dresses, but I really like how smock dresses look - especially this one! It's oversized and the sleeves are rolled up - kinda the perfect dress. I kept the outfit simple with my long necklace and black boots. 

The lovely Iconemesis let me pick a phonecase and I chose this one! It caught my eye as soon as I saw it. What I love is that this character 'Fifi' has a story. I love her outfit and the sass she has going on! Honestly, since having an Iphone I've not come across any decent cases, Iconemesis have changed that! I love all the different designs they have. I'm thinking they'll be good for Christmas and birthday gifts too!

OOTD | Sweater Weather - Yumi Blogger Style-Off

Dress c/o : Yumi | Crop Jumper : Ebay | Shoes : Charity Shop/Similar

 I was recently contacted by Yumi to ask if I'd like to take part in their Blogger Style-off Challenge! Me and three other bloggers have been picked to take part in this challenge. We each have to pick one dress from Yumi's new Injection Collection and individually style the dresses we picked. Our outfits are featured on Yumi's Facebook and whoever's outfit gets the most likes, wins! The winner will get to pick a piece of their choice from the Yumi site.

I picked this Lace Print Dress because I like the dark colours and the collar! As of course I don't like to show my arms, I popped a black cropped jumper over it. I've never worn a cropped jumper before but I'm glad I have one now. I adore how the cropped jumper looks with this dress, especially with the collar popping out at the top. I finished it off with my black leather shoes to keep things simple.

John lewis - White Stuff collection wishlist

White Stuff wishlist
The new White Stuff collection by John Lewis is so lovely - It's all very autumny and making this wishlist made me feel oh-so christmassy!  1 - I am in love with this blouse, it's covered in birds! I'm really digging  white's this autumn. I think this blouse would be wonderful to wear for transitioning from s/s to a/w!
2 - I really love the whole A-Line skirt trend that is going on at the moment. I love the colour and simplicity of this skirt, so autumny! I think it would love so nice with the the bird blouse tucked in to it! 3 - Obviously scarves are a necessity around this time of year and I'm not sure why but I really like scarves with animals on them! 4 - Brown bags are literally the best, I'm always seeing people with brown bags and they just always look good! I think number 1, 2 and 3 would make a nice outfit! <3

OOTD | Life's a tightrope and you're standing on one toe

Coat & Jumper : Charity Shop | Skirt : Amazon | Belt : ASOS | Boots : Clarks via eBay (similar here)

I'm having a little think about how things have changed over the past year. My blog was crazy different last  October, I think I had done around 5 outfits in total since February! Thinking about it now, even I was different - I didn't really know what I wanted to do with my life and even though I'm not 100% sure, I still have a better idea of what that is now. I think I'm a bit more confident and maybe more outgoing too and I'm so happy about that.
I'm so excited to re-cap my new years resolutions and see what I've achieved this year!

On to what I'm wearing.. this is probably my favorite outfit right now because the colours are so autumn-y!
Browns and reds instantly make me think of autumn and I love how the jumper and the coat look together.
I'm wearing my black skater skirt with my new belt from ASOS and my new Clarks boots.

 This outfit was featured on Becca (voussontbeauetbelle)'s "One Trend Any Size - Tartan" post, so go check it out!
I've got a really exciting post coming up soon that I can't wait to share! Until then, goodbye! <3

OOTD | We'll never be royals

Cardigan - Tesco // Shirt - c/o:  Be Unrivalled // Jeans - Ebay // Flatforms - Topshop via Next2Nowt

I do apologise for only using one photo in this post, but it's been getting so dark recently that all my photos have not been clear enough to use. I guess it's finally that time of year again! If you have any recommendations for cheap studio lights, I would love you as I absolutely loathe using the flash! Moving on.. this sugar skull shirt is from Be Unrivalled! Their shirts range from £21-£23 and are made from 100% cotton and is super comfortable and the reason for that is because their ladies shirts are treated with an enzyme wash and peach effect which makes them super soft, completely different to your average cotton t-shirt. I've been loving printed shirts recently and you can't really go wrong with a sugar skull. I was originally going to style this shirt with a skirt but I thought I'd change it up a bit and pair it with my new jeans and flatforms.

New In : WILLS 2-PART FLATFORMS

I know, I know.. I've jumped on the flatform bandwagon a little too late.. but in my defence it was too hot to go outside this summer, let alone thinking of what footwear to buy! These beauties are originally from Topshop  - RRP £35 but I got them on next2nowt for an amazing £20. The right foot is a bit loose at the back, whereas the left fits perfectly, but it's nothing too major. I'm very happy I have these as I've been inspired by Stephanie from TheFashionCitizen, I love the way she styles them. She is my style icon. I shall be saving these for next summer or maybe see if I can slip them on, on a night out!

Do you like flatforms?
