Sheer Sparkle

Hi biscuits!

So it's been a while since I blogged an outfit. As I explained in my '2016 To-do List', I want my blog to have more content, but it will of course still predominately be about celebrating my style - particularly when the outfit is this gem... Dress: Little Mistress (via Simply Be)^ Cardigan: H&M Shoes: Dorothy Perkins^ Tights: Boots Isn't this dress dreamy?! Like sparkle, flower petal, floaty princess dreamy?! I was looking for a New Year's outfit and decided to treat myself and bought three dresses. Although my plans in the end fell through and what I did instead was sit in front of the telly, eating pizza (which is obviously still a win), I couldn't bring myself to send this gorgeous dress back. I did initially fear when I opened it, that it would be a little too long, almost like a maxi dress, but it hits my pixie 5'1" height just above the ankles, so it's actually the perfect length.
I love the sheer, layered skirt that catches the…

Wonder.land

One of my favourite things to do is escape. I used to do it quite a bit when I was young and still do it now as an adult. That feeling of leaving everything behind – the good and bad stuff, and just floating away to a world unknown, even if it’s for a little while. Escaping isn’t necessarily literal for me, and is in fact mainly achieved through reading, writing and doing things like go to the theatre.
I wish I went to the theatre more, but as it can be quite pricey it needs to be something more; it needs to be an experience. Wonder.land is just that, and the irony here is that it didn’t help me escape at all, but instead brought back all those adolescent feelings I had in a wave of wonder (pun intended!).
Wonder.land is a modern day version of Alice in Wonderland and is set in London where the main character, Ali, is one all young girls will recognise. You see, Ali is sad. Ali is sad, confused, angry, frustrated, jealous, and desperately lonely. Her parents are separated, she feels sh…

Winter Lace

Hello you lovely lot! I hope you're all well and the new year is treating you good so far.

This outfit is way overdue due to the shorter daylight, but I finally managed to take a few pictures of this gorgeous dress during one of my lunch breaks. Last year, the lovely folk at Navabi got in touch with me to see if I wanted to review something from their site. I of course jumped at the chance and proceeded to find difficulty narrowing my lust list down. In the end I went for this stunning lace, fitted mini dress.
Dress: Navabi^* Cardigan:H&M (Burgundy currently out of stock) Leggings: South (via Very)^ Scarf: Dorothy Perkins^ Shoes: Dorothy Perkins^ I wore this for an average day at the office, but as you can see, it's a hot little number and would not look out of place at a party or fancy dinner - just swap the leggings for tights, the flats for some cute heels, and leave the cardigan at home for and sexy, stylish evening outfit. And that's what I love about this dress, it ca…

2016 To-do List

Hello 2016!

I know people say this every year, but goodness the time has flown by. Another year has passed and a new year is now upon us with a plethora of ambition and opportunities just waiting to be grasped. I know there are those whom wish to keep their goals for 2016 to themselves, and that's obviously fine, but I like to start a new year on my blog discussing the things I'd like to achieve with this fresh start. I'm really not one for resolutions at all, but I love writing lists; a to-do list is exactly the kind of thing I like to start a new year with - no pressure, just a friendly reminder of the things I'd like to do. In no particular order....

Blog more: The trouble with wanting to be a blogger who likes to take outfit pics as and when I wear said outfit, is that there is not always someone around to take those pictures for you. I don't have a friend close by to do my  photos or a boyfriend to lend a helping hand; I literally ask the few people whom I tru…
