HOW TO STYLE THE STATEMENT T-SHIRT

Leeds, UK

You can never go wrong with the basics, especially when it comes to a simplistic yet classic, statement print t-shirt. I've found that lately I've adopted a more casual-meets-formal style, mixing up certain pieces that I wouldn't have previously thought in a million years to put together and actually work for me. Culottes & trainers? A bold statement tee? They weren't ever viable options. However, as my wardrobe evolves over time, I've really enjoyed experimenting with my look....

I FOUND BURBERRY BEAUTY IN TKMAXX


I always love finding those special little items in Tkmaxx, especially when it's designer. The store itself is definitely like marmite - some people hate it, others love it. I'm definitely a lover, and have raved about Tkmaxx for years and years - you never know what you may find! In the past I've discovered Marc Jacobs sunglasses, Versace handbags and most recently, Burberry makeup. Yes, I couldn't quite believe it myself when I saw a load of excited women around the cosmetics area grabbing every product - it was crazy! This is what I managed to pick up....

The revival of the 'fluffy bag' is one that surprised me - from lusting after a bubblegum pink miniature as a pre-teen in the local Claire's Accessories, to being in my early twenties, seeing strong clueless '90s vibes plastered everywhere on the high-street. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love experimenting with my style to see if it looks good, but also if it works functionality wise. In that sense, I'm ashamed to say that I do think like an adult now (ignorance is bliss until you start paying for council tax and other grown up nonsense). Where was I? Ah, the fluffy bag. It's beautiful, but risky. Risky to take on a night out without getting a classy vodka lemonade sticking to it kind of business - even for me. I like to invest in staple pieces, but for once, I was swayed by this particular pale blue/grey cloud of delight....



WHERE TO FIND THE BEST RIPPED JEANS

Leeds, UK

Where to find the best jeans in 2017? That always seems like a never-ending question every year - to get the most flattering fit, the best updated style and long-wear quality - but - at an affordable price. I think I've found the secret to that question. I've already mentioned in the past that I'm an avid fan of the ripped jeans look from my previous posts (see here) - but there's just something about just discovering this brands' range of jeans that actually made me stop in my tracks on the busy shop-floor and ask myself, ''hey - why haven't I shopped here before for jeans?'' Especially when they are as beautiful as these particular ones....
