River Island

Spots and Stripes…


Hope you guys are having a beautiful weekend, just a quick outfit of the day with this spotty playsuit from Newlook.

I love love love dresses and playsuits, the ‘complete outfit in one’ idea just really appeals to me. I’ve had this playsuit for years and I think the neutral colour and pattern makes it extremely easy to wear.

A denim jacket and some white converse would look just as nice on slightly cooler days, or flats and a cardigan to be super casual.

Just Crushing On My NATO Strap…


This week I’m all about this Daniel Wellington NATO Southampton strap in navy, pink and white.
The face is from my Classic Sheffield in Rose Gold but
Switching the strap out has completely changed the look and feel of the watch.

This is now the
Daniel Wellington Classic Southampton watch in Rose Gold
To me, it is now far more casual and relaxed. At first I thought I wouldn’t get much use out of this strap, loving my monochrome comfort zone the way I do,
However after a few days of wearing it I know I’m gonna get so much use from it.
The pin to change the straps over came in the box and
was so easy to do even for a complete watch novice like myself.


I’ve teamed up my White Amelie Skinny Jeans from River Island
Tan gladiator sandals with gold hardware also from River Island circa 2005 and held together with love (similar everywhere)
Coral floaty vest top from kmart ($5!!!)
Charlize 5 Pocket Soft Denim Jacket from FOREVER NEW


These ‘Amelie’s’ are a real true white jean, they are thicker than most white jeans I’ve seen which helps them to look less see through.
I love how crisp and bright they look when I team them with a neon top.
Double denim like a rebel with my deep blue jacket from Forever New which is a soft stretch and again a great go with everything option.



Tan Ballet Flats from New look
Basic stripe 3/4 sleeve T-shirt from ZARA
Again with the white jeans, today with tan and navy.
This colour combo is a classic and looks relaxed and still put together.
These basics from Zara are such a bargain. Fantastic soft fabric that feel so comfortable and easy to wear.

Have a great week guys whatever your up to

TOPSHOP Mom Jeans…



Cropped Boxy Vest in White RIVER ISLAND
Barely There Sandals RIVER ISLAND
Acid Wash Mom Jeans TOPSHOP
Primark Laser Cut Tote Bag in White
Ally Gold Tone Necklace


Most people either love or hate the look of these high waisted, loose legged jeans
I gotta say I absolutely adore them
There are so many variations on the high street that you are sure to find a pattern or wash that you feel will work for you. I opted for the acid wash as they look retro and are easy to team with most colours.
Mine are the petite versions, I am 5’5 and like the cropped ankle grazer look but I have linked the originals.
Also the River Island sandals I find run on the larger size so I would suggest trying them on before you buy them or if you are between sizes then order the size down.
