Secret Little Finds

Hey guys, enjoying the sun in England or Abroad?

Well I was curious to know if this happens to other people; you find beautiful items of clothing in your mums or dads wardrobe or like me in your shed? I found this wonderful waistcoat in my shed, it use to belong to my mum and I apparently wore it when I was little on World Book day as Heidi. Anyway, I am going to Reading Festival so I am defiantly going to back this cute little piece. It also goes really well with my new Topshop pinafore/dungaree/playsuit, which I purchased because I feel it is more interesting and flattering than a normal pair of dungaree shorts.

Anyway hope you enjoyed this post, and there are lots more to come so keep reading and sharing with friends please!


Thanks, Becky x

New Sale Items!

Hello guys, sorry for the lack of blog post recently but I have had an extremely busy week. I have been rehearsing for a performance of ‘As You Like It’ by William Shakespeare; I had an amazing time and made great friends. This is post includes one of the outfits I wore to a rehearsal.

I purchased this two piece from the Topshop sale; for only £25. I had been admiring this co-ord before it was in the sale, so naturally I was extremely pleased to see it hanging on the sale rail. I love the colours, pattern and texture of this co-ord. Yet, the best aspect of this two piece is the shape because the shorts are not too short and the top sits nicely above the shorts. Therefore this co-ord unlike some can be worn for night or day, which is always a fabulous quality to have in an item of clothing.


I have once again ventured into the world of hats! I am a true hat lover but have not worn them for a while because I felt I lacked summer hats. This pastel blue hat has been tormenting me ever since I saw it in River Island. I did not buy it because it cost a whopping 15 pounds, which personally I feel is a lot for a hat. So you can image my delight when it went into the sale for a fiver! So obviously I didn’t think twice about buying it and I am glad I didn’t. It goes which pretty much everything I own, because the grey band around the hat means I can contrast it with dark colours as well as pastels. Paloma Faith once said that ‘a hat is a full stop to an outfit’- I agree entirely.

Clashing Prints for Summer!

There are so many wonderful different styles around this summer; Pastels, Tribal, Sports Lux and Bohemian. I can’t decide which one I prefer, and why should I? If you love lots of different styles enjoy wearing all of them each day!

This outfit is based around Tribal prints. The best way to create a Tribal summer look is to clash prints. In this outfit I am clashing prints with my H&M trousers and Topshop bag (which was only £12 in the sale).  As I have not clashed the trousers which a different print top, it stops the outfit from looking overcrowded and busy. The bag creates an even amount of clashingness, (yes I have just made that word up).

The Tribal and Bohemian style crosses over a lot, and it is a great thing to do because it makes any outfit more interesting. My mum’s necklaces which she got from Peru give the effect of a bohemian look.
Hope you liked this post; let me know by maybe leaving a comment below. I am also hoping to post more often now because I am on my summer holiday wooooooooo!

Sunday Style Inspiration

My biggest guilty pleasure is Keeping up with the Kardashians, therefore todays style inspiration is Kylie Jenner because she is the queen of laid back style. Miss Jenner can make anything from a baggy band top to basic ripped jeans look incredible.

My outfit takes elements from her laid back look; however I was going to a party so I wore the leotard to make it more suitable for the occasion. The checked T-shirt around the waist is a statement accessory which completes any laid back look and it is something Kylie always wears. The gold jewellery also takes the outfit from a laidback look to more of a party outfit. The jewellery also changes the outfit from Kylie Jenner style to something that Khloe Kardashian might be more likely to wear.


Hope you guys, enjoyed this post and please feel free to leave any comments or thoughts on today’s Sunday Style Inspiration. J

OOTD


 So this is a very casual look, great for shopping or a quick lunch with friends. I brought the trousers 3 or 4 years ago from Topshop and they have served me well. They are super comfy and stylish.

I love the bohemian style at the moment; therefore the jacket completes the look because the pattern is very bohemian and it makes the outfit look more stylish. The jacket is my mums, however it is currently living in my wardrobe; my mum brought it from the Monsoon sale.

The converse finishes off the outfit, because it matches with the red in jacket. It is always a good idea to combine the top of your outfit with the very bottom, as it makes the outfit look complete.

Festival Inspiration!

I know Glastonbury is over, and I am extremely jealous of anyone who went. However, if I had the chance to have gone, this would probably be one of my outfits.

The bohemian look is a must have for all festivals! It involves clashing prints, materials and lots of jewellery.

My trousers are from Primark and I adore the print and shape of them. Wide leg trousers, are everywhere at the moment; Topshop recently had a feature on their website about five different ways to style them and one was with a fur jacket similar to how I have styled them.


The key items to complete a bohemian festival look is lots of jewellery; layer it up and it is okay to mix gold and silver in this look!





Trousers: Primark, £15 
Jacket: H&M, £20
Top: Asos 
Bag: Boohoo

Wimbledon Style

So it’s that time of year, where I cannot watch TV because my parents are sat on the edge of their seats watching Wimbledon! As much as I am not a fan of tennis or any sport on that matter, I happened to put a tennis-looking-outfit together. I think it was my new Nike trainers that made it look so sporty.

They were incredible expensive, but worth every penny as I have been yearning for a pair for a while now! If you haven’t got a pair, I would invest as they are super comfy and stylish. But unless you have been living under a rock, you probably do have a pair as the rest of the world seems to.

I currently loving the simplistic look at the moment; which also includes the amazing white wash look. However I am still unsure about this coat- some days I love it other days I hate it-and I think this is because it slightly resembles a lap coat? Ahh well, it was only from Primark!
