White Jeans 3 Ways | New Look Denim


I've wanted a pair of white jeans for a while now but just couldn't find a pair that fitted me exactly how I wanted them to. Until now. I was asked to put together a post about how I'd style a pair of New Look jeans in three different ways. I could choose any of these New Look jeans. Any at all all. I chose the Petite White Ripped Disco Jeans and they fit so well! Just enough stretch to make them comfortable, yet they're flattering and not too see-through. *Tip* wear nude underwear under white jeans, rather than white. White will show through!

So here are the three ways I'd style my New Look White Jeans...

1. Topshop Plunge Neck Satin Dress: The line shade of this dress makes it quite girly, but the plunge neckline keeps it sexy, perfect for a girly night out! I'd wear it with a deep red lip and simple black accessories. 

2. Olivia Burton Moulded Bee Watch: I have a little obsession with bees and various other insects, so when I saw this watch it went straight to the top of my wishlist. I don't normally like watches with leather straps, but I'd make an exception for this beauty! 

3. Topshop Marble Rectangle Drop Earrings: The perfect accessory to glam up simple outfits. I think these earrings would look just as amazing with jeans and a top as they would with your favourite little black dress. 

4. River Island Grey Suede Peep Toe Heeled Boots: I like the simplicity of these ankle boots. Wear with a grey tee, black skinnies and a leather jacket for the perfect model off-duty look. 

5. River Island Pink Draped Twist Dress: Jersey drape dresses are my go-to style for nights out. They're so flattering! I normally don't go for pink tones, but after wearing a pink and lilac dress for my aunts wedding, and getting a lot people saying how much I suited the colours, I'm going to give pink a go more often!

Monday Wishlist #72


1. Topshop Moto Ecru Dungarees: I'm not entirely convinced I could wear these dungarees without looking like a five year old. I imagine them with a navy and white Breton-stripe top underneath and a pair of gold or tan sandals for a casual weekend look. 

2. River Island Light Coral Cold Shoulder Top: I have a very similar top from Primark in black and it's so easy to wear. This colour is fresh and pretty, perfect with white jeans or a button-through denim skirt. 

3. River Island Pink Print Mini Skirt: I love grey and baby pink together, it's always been one of my favourite colour combinations. This skirt would look great with any colour top, from white, cream, black to baby pink and a reddy-burgundy shade. 

4. River Island Maroon Smart Cut Out Playsuit: Imagine this playsuit with gold heels, gold jewellery and bronzed skin. I'd also be excited to wear this with tights and knee-high boots, with a faux fur gilet in the winter months.

The Alnwick Garden | Northumberland


Beautiful flowers, shady mazes and poison gardens. The perfect place to loose yourself for a few hours. 

I'm talking about the Alnwick Garden, a place very close to where I live yet I hadn't visited since the day it opened, in September 2002. A few weeks ago, on a beautiful day, myself and my friend Leanne decided to visit the gardens. It ended up being such a lovely day!

BOOHOO Global Style Swap


A weeks I was contacted by boohoo.com who asked if I'd like to take part in their Global Style Swap. Of course I jumped at the chance! 

So what is this style swap? I was paired with Parisian blogger Nikita from meetmeinparee.com, go check her out if you haven't already. We were asked to swap styles. I chose an outfit for Nikita and she chose one for me, in essence acting like each others personal stylists.

Monday Wishlist #71


1. Topshop Copenhagen Drenched Trainers: Oh Topshop, these are clearly 'dupes' of the Adidas Superstar Supercolor Pack Shoes, right? I love them! I rally wanted a pair of the Adidas ones,  but at £67 a pop, I just didn't get round to making the purchase. These are only £22 though, bargain, right!?

2. Topshop High Apex Slip Dress: I have a cami top in this same style, so I know I really like the neckline. A slip dress like this would look so cute with a pair of gold sandals for a casual day, but you could easily dress it up with some sky-scraper heels and some gold jewellery for a night of cocktails with the girls. 

3. River Island Beige Faux Shearling Sleeveless Gilet: River Island Gilet - I know, I know, it's we're having a heat wave in the UK (sort of) I'm looking at winter jackets? What's wrong with me! When the stores starting bringing in new season though, I just can't help lusting over it! No matter how impractical this would be in my wardrobe right now, I want it. So bad. Should I buy it? I think I'll buy it...

4. New Look Black Speckled Oval Stone Bar Necklace: I love a statement necklace, even though I don't actually wear mine that much. Oops. Perfect over a simple t-shirt, or wear with a printed summer dress to make even more of a statement.

The Dirty Bottles | Alnwick


The Dirty Bottles Taproom and Smokehouse is a brand new bar/restaurant in Alnwick. There has been such a buzz around it's opening that I had to try it out at the first opportunity I got!

The cocktails were what I was most excited to try out. The Dirty Bottles has a huge selection of amazing sounding, and looking cocktails available. It was so hard to choose just one, which is why I ended up with two. Oops. The first has to be the Frozen Bubblegum Daiquiri, and the second the Strawberry and White Chocolate Mojito. Both tasted amazing and I'll admit, I was a little tipsy afterwards so there was no scrimping on the alcohol content!

Outfit | Golden State of Mind


I wasn't so fussed about the Kendall + Kylie collection for Topshop - I wasn't going to run out and buy something for the sake of it! I saw this printed tee online and thought it looked nice, but didn't plan on buying it. That was until I actually saw in in person. I really love the fabric, and the 'Golden State of mind' is written in a tropical print - I love it!
