Get the look with me

For this post (and sorry for the absence of posts, let's just say I've taken some down time and away from the blog) I wanted to share with you my current looks that I have been wearing as I love fashion!

I love summer for fashion as I can do away with the multiple layers I find myself in for the rest of the year (this is the UK) and start wearing dresses and light weight trousers.
I can wear trainers without thick socks, pretty tops not hidden under jumpers and dresses with sandals rather than dressing for warmth not style. At 33 years of age I am yet to perfect the art of stylish dressing and trying to keep warm at the same time!

Anyway I digress. Below I have created 5 flat lays of my fav looks at the moment. The are pretty casual, I don't tend to go out in the evenings so most my wardrobe is day wear.


The first look is a standard t-shirt and skinny jeans look. I find this such an easy and comfortable outfit to wear. I like to tuck the front of my t-shirt into my jeans, leaving the rest hanging out.
I also tend to roll up the cuffs on my jeans as I like the look and I trousers are often a bit long on me, being I'm 5ft 3".
You can't go wrong with a pair of Converse's for a day time look and I think the colour of the t-shirt goes well with the Converse's.

To get the look you can find the t-shirt in New Look,  Leigh Topshop jeans, Converse's from John Lewis, sunglasses from Topshop, camera from John Lewis and Kate Rimmel lipstick from Superdrug.



This next look is a slightly more tailored look. In the summer I love wearing light weight trousers. I find them comfortable and go with a whole host of tops and jackets.
These pretty floral trousers are from River Island. they have a ruched waistband with a tie. I team this with a pink cotton cropped t-shirt from Zara.
The sandals are from Hush Puppies at Schuh and are so comfy! With this look I could wear trainers but I wanted to keep it looking smart/casual. The necklace has a pendant with an the Aries symbol on it. I found this on an app called FY. It was only £12. It was shipped from Germany so took a few days to get to me but I love it! I've finished this with pink sunglasses from Primark and a couple of bangles from Oliver Bonas.
(As I'm such the pro photographer- can you see my reflection in the sunglasses!)



This next look is a bit more of a colder day look. I found this jumper in Superdry in the sale. If I remember correctly it was only £11. I thought it was an investment for autumn. It's not too thick so ideal for a cooler day.
I pair this with a pair of black skinny jeggings from New Look. For footwear I have complimented the look with a pair of white sliders from New Look. These were reduced to £8 and are another super comfortable item!
For accessories I wear my Biba Rachel bag from House of Fraser. I love the Gucci bag this is inspired from but alas I cannot afford the price tag and I think this Biba version is a much more purse friendly version at £79.



This is a look I am currently loving. Another pair of light weight trousers, this time from the sale in New Look for £12. I have added a white cotton cropped t-shirt from Top. To make it look a bit more dressed I have put my black Marks and Spencers mules with them.
Finished with a horn necklace from a local jewellery shop called Pia. (You can find a more high end version at Missoma for around £80, but this one is very similar at £25). This look is completed with a pair of sunglasses from Oasis and matt nude lip colour from L'Oréal.



This final look is not a look I would normally wear but sometimes I like to step outside my comfort zone!
If I'm honest I didn't get the slider trend initially, but after trying a pair and seeing how comfortable they were I was converted. That and I love anything soft and fluffy!
To create this look I have chosen my grey River Island biker style jacket, a logo t-shirt from Primark, a pale pink corduroy skirt from Primark and sliders for a bargain £10 from a local footwear store called Zig Zag. Finished with a nude lipstick by Kate at Rimmel.



So there you have my current fashion looks. Heading into autumn I'm thinking about jumpers, a nice styled jacket and skinny legged trousers. I will endeavour to try and combat style and comfort for the cooler days!

I hope you enjoyed this post. I would love to know which is your favourite look.

Love and hugs,
