I need a Hero...

On my wishlist this week is this bat print jumper from Zoe Karssen.
I love the ribbed shoulder detailing on this, it gives the effect of it being slightly padded.

I'd wear this classic jumper with my skinny jeans or a leather pencil skirt.

On another note, lately I haven't been posting much on my blog or on twitter. I have been unwell so will be drifting in and out of my blog and twitter for the next few months until I get myself better. x

Back to Basics

Zara skirt with hip detail - the colour is called "make-up" which I though was cute!

Zara blouse with gold stud shoulder detail

Zara linen-mix tee with jewel shoulder detail

Zara drawstring leopard print trousers
Zara basic black sandal - at £29.99 these are a bargain!
Zara silk back jumper - love the little silk peter pan collar on this

Zara silky lingerie style shorts with rose-gold stud detail

I must confess, I am addicted to Zara!! Hands down, it has to be my favourite high street store.
Anytime I go into Zara, without fail, I'll see loads of things love and take the maximum amount I can into the changing room. To be fair mind you, sometimes the things I love, I don't love so much on as I thought I did seeing it on the hanger. 

Above is some of my latest Zara purchases. I'm not afraid of colour and have a closet full of brights, neons.... the whole colour spectrum, but lately I've been more attracted to buying neutral, capsule collection pieces that I can mix and match.

The only thing I don't like about Zara is that sometimes new things will sell out fast and not come back in stock, for example, I've been after a pair of high-waisted white shorts with gold zips and have been hunting for them for weeks now but can never find them! A kind store assistant, wrote the code down for me so now it's a case of a daily check on the website to see if they appear again. 

Today, I saw a beautiful lime green suede over-sized clutch bag but there was only one and it was marked. I went to order it online and they only have it in yellow or blue so this is another thing I need to keep hunting for! 

Remember these Louis Vuitton pumps with the metal covered toe detail?

Check out these almost identical Zara beauties:-

These shoes are simply stunning! They are the like a pale blush pink shade and feel like soft suede and cost £49.99 but they sold out almost immediately!  Love these, perfect and classic!

 I'm looking forward to wearing all my new stuff and teaming the neutrals with pops of colour like my neon yellow Cambridge Co Satchel or my bright blue J Brand skinny jeans etc

Happy shopping xx

Missing in action

Sorry, I feel like I've recently been neglecting my blog. With working full time in an office and planning my wedding (I'm getting married in November!!!) it's sometimes hard to get the time to sit down and write!

Anyway, apart from my wedding planning ( which I'll blog about later) here's some of the things I've been up to these past few weeks.

Had a lovely trip to the seaside last weekend. It was so hot down in Lythem, St Anne's, I had to buy a maxi dress to change out of my jeans!! Or a lovely bright floral maxi dress from Oxfam that was brand new still with the tags on for a £5! I love a good bargain!! It took us just under 4 hours to drive down from Glasgow but the drive was lovely & getting to the beach with the dog was worth it! We chose to go down to St Anne's as my grandparents lives down there for a while so it always brings back fond, fun memories for us.

Honeymoon buys, we have booked to go to Cancun for our honeymoon! The longest flight I've ever been on was 7 1/2 hours from Glasgow to Boston so the 11 1/2 hours should be an experience. I figure, if we watch some in-flight films, have our meals then get a wee sleep then it will be okay :-)
I've recently had a bit of a major spree on H&M bikinis. I think I have about 9 new bikini's!!! It's not that I'm a bikini addict, the H&M bikini's are so lovely and at around £7/£8 a set it's not breaking the bank! I also got a cute kimono that will be great over my bikinis or even wearing over a tank & shorts during the day.My mum also ordered me a Mexican/Spanish phrasebook and a Cancun top 10 guide so I'll need to start doing my homework and learn the lingo :-)

Aside from my h&m buys this month, I've been hitting Zara pretty hard too!! I would say I am a bit of a Zara addict just now :-). I couldn't resist these leopard print trousers, they are honestly so comfy & I think on holiday, times when I want to cover my legs from the sun, these teamed with a cute top & sandals will be perfect. They are baggy at the top and tapered at the legs. I was concerned they light look like pj's but I've been assured they don't!! Post to follow of my Zara buys this month.

For the next 5 months, I will have less time to focus on my blog with all the wedding planning and preparation but I will try to keep posting and look forward to posting about my wedding plans too! My goal is after my honeymoon to invest in a proper camera so I can start to post daily "what I'm wearing" outfit posts so you should me and my personal style more through the blog as soon as I have the camera!

Thanks for reading my blog xx
