OOTD - The Crisp white shirt

Shirt - Topshop / Jeans - Topshop / Shoes - Primark / Necklace - H&M / Lipstick - Ruby Woo MAC

I've had this shirt for about a year, I think I brought it for my birthday last year actually and I think I've worn it once and I've certainly not blogged about it. I love the whole minimalist, crisp look at the moment and a white shirt is definitely an essential for anyone's wardrobe. I just seem to stuggle over how to style it up, but honestly it's not that hard its one of those pieces you can experiment with and get all types of looks out of it. 

I simply kept the shirt loose, undoing the bottoms at the top and bottom, and tucking in one side to these black high waisted jeans. I paired them with these woven style shoes and this H&M necklace which I am loving at the moment and red lipstick. All these things are would make it an effortless put together look. I actually really love it.

What I got for my 20th birthday!

 So lets get what needs to be said out of the way, this is in no way a bragging post I'm not creating this post to try and rub your face in what I was gifted. I like lots of others love reading these types of posts, lets face it those in the blogging community are pretty nosy; we write about our lives and read about others. 

Nike Air Max Thea's 

How amazing is this?!

On the 17th of this month I turn 20 the dreaded loss of the teen at the end of your age. I also have yet to come to terms with the fact that I now feel super old and I'm still at college and have done little with my life yet. Any-who I had a lovely day of eating out with some of the family and having a Marvel avengers evening and the last week or so. I did forget to feature the 6 piece box set that I also received, my bad.

Can we take a minute to appreciate my best friend with me, for my birthday she created me one of those letter boxes in which  you open an envelope up depending on what it says on the front. for example 'Open when bored' It's such a fab idea idea and I just love it! Also a quick shout out to the Despicable Me wrapping paper!

5 things on my bucket list -

Excellent bucket list for dreamers! To which I'd add, "Knock back a few with the leprechauns on St. Paddy's day."
Found on Pinterest 

  1. Travel the World - 
    I think this is a pretty standard one for multiple people, but travelling the world has always been something that I've wanted to do. I want to go to every country, see everything I want to see. 
  2. See the Northern lights - 
    This probably links in with the travelling one, but ever since I was a child, the northern lights have been something I'm in awe of. I decided I would go to Alaska to view them, I'd read in a book set in Alaska and the character saw the northern lights and it must have stuck with me. 
  3. Skydive -
    I'm definitely no thrill seeker but I'm not one to be scared of heights or speed, there's something about skydiving that has always stuck out to me. I'd love to do it and some point in my life, for fun or charity.
  4. Learn to play the guitar - 
    Confession I have a guitar for a couple of years and I still don't know how to play it. I occasionally pick it up and get taught a little summin, but I found I'm a visual leaner I need someone to show me in person not off a computer or a book. So I haven't learnt it yet but I stand by that I will eventually learn it!
  5. Go to festivals  - 
    It's a pretty standard one, I love music and I love camping so festivals are really something I want to do, as many as possible all over the world!

OOTD - Connected Generation

T-Shirt - Connected Generation * Skirt - Asos 

I was kindly sent this Tshirt by Connected Generation a fantastic charity website in which you buy a Tshirt with a chosen design on and £5 of the money goes to a charity of your choice (from their selection) but what makes them unique is that you're able to upload your designs on to the website and people can buy and be wearing them and supporting a charity. Is that not a brilliant idea?! To read more into what they do click HERE.

I chose this design of a stag head, this design I was particularly drawn to, one that I could easily wear with anything. I'm super impressed with the quality of this T-shirt and it's ethically sourced, which I certainly became interested in after researching into for a project at college. I think it's something that more people should get behind.

The fashion trainer trend -

This is a trend that's been around for a year or two now, but one I'm all about jumping on to. If you know me or have read my blog for long enough you'll know I'm all about laid back comfort and that I wear my vans with literally anything, they're my go to shoe! Can you see how this trend is made for me yet?! 

I've been searching the internet for a while looking for the perfect pair, that I know I'll be able to get a lot of wear out of and I think I may have found them. It's my birthday next month so watch this space, on that front.

Here are a few selections of a the different styles that are popular at the moment!


But honestly it all comes down to how to style them? I don't know if I'm over thinking or not but I'm a bit stumped and I figure they're harder to style up then vans. I think there is a fine line between fashionable and a Lily Allen's trainer and prom dress look from way back.

Here are a few of my favourite looks I've come across styling up trainers, all so versatile and wearable. Looks that I can't wait to experiment and style up myself!

OOTD - Dogtooth

Playsuit - Missguided, Tights - Asda - Shoes - Muvs 

I got this play suit for Christmas just gone and I've worn a few times but just never blogged it, so here it is! I do really love this playsuit, it's got that waist illusion with the oversized layer on top and the print is fab. This is definitely a piece I can transition throughout the year day or night, it's quite a thick fabric which isn't necessarily a bad thing during our summers here in England. We're not known for our hot weather that's for sure! 

MUST READ: It's also in the Missguided sale for only £8!
