Throughout my childhood, I always thought that midi skirts were for Grannies as my beautiful Great-Grandmother (bless her soul) always wore them with a T-shirt and a big chunk cardigan. One family member, in particular, kept telling me to wear either full length or short skirts to make my legs look longer - being 5ft3 clearly has its downs, but now I'm embracing my height and rocking the midi skirt trend (if I do say so myself)!

I now own 5 (I think) midi skirts which I have collected over the past year and I can't wait to get more wear out of them this season. This particular snake-print one is my new favourite as it is the softest thing I have ever touched and looks amazing on. It's from H&M and is only £12.99 - I managed to get mine for only £7.99 as I'm a member of the H&M club and had a £5 reward to use up (it is free for anyone to join and you get unlimited free delivery with no minimum spend).
In this picture, I'm wearing it with a cute 'You Glow Girl' slogan tee (similar here), and these gorgeous croc style burgundy boots from Topshop.

I feel like a cute slogan tee will always look really good with a midi skirt, however, I also like to style them with an oversized jumper tucked it. At first, I felt really silly wearing a long skirt with a big knitted jumper but I received so many compliments when I wore that outfit that now I'm kicking myself for not taking any pictures to share with you!  But I do have a couple of pictures of a different skirt and t-shirt combo that I thought you'd appreciate:

The 'Honey' t-shirt is from New Look which I bought a while ago (similar here) and the Burberry style skirt is from H&M (similar here, here and here). I absolutely love this combo and it upsets me that both original items are sold out so you can't get your hands on them anymore, but if I were you I'd definitely look up the skirt on eBay as someone might be selling one!

As you can probably tell, I really like to wear my midi skirts with t-shirts, but as I previously mentioned they also go great with oversized knitted jumpers or even sweatshirt style jumper! I'm definitely down for this trend this season and you should be too!

What are some of the trends you're loving this season?

If you've already read my What To Do In The UK During Summer Holidays post then you'd know that I recently went down to the British seaside and managed to get some nice shots taken. I didn't know the weather was going to be as nice as it was (I'm sure it came up to around 30 degrees) so I would have maybe worn a playsuit, however, I feel like this dress was perfect as it's floaty and made from thin material so it turned out as the perfect outfit!

Ever since receiving this gorgeous kimono for Christmas a few years ago, I've been obsessed with it and wear it all the time in warmer weather when it's too hot for a proper jacket but not warm enough to go without one. I believe it was in the Topshop sale for around £15-£20, so it was very affordable for a statement piece that I've been loving for years!

My cute little marble bag has made an appearance in a previous post which you can find here. I love a statement micro bag - these are huge this year as mentioned by the lovely ladies at a bloggers event in Nottingham. This gorgeous bag was only £6 from Primark which my lovely mum has bought for me on a shopping trip a while back.

This dress is honestly one of the prettiest items I've ever bought from Primark - yup, you heard it right - PRIMARK! I had seen it on Instagram and was hoping to find it in store and when I did, boy was I happy! At only £13 this is definitely a must-have this Summer. I'm not sure if there will be any left as when I bought mine there were only a few sizes left, but if you're lucky enough to find one I would suggest trying on a size down as it does come up big!

My huge hat is also from Primark, I believe it was only £3!

Have you been to Primark recently? Did you come across any bargains?

OOTD || Day At The Beach - Holiday Edition

Hey Everyone!

What have you all been up to? Finishing school? Doing your exams? Working? Well, you all must know by now that I'm in sunny Greece for a few more days so I've been making the most of it while still trying to blog and I've got some really exciting posts coming up once I'm back so make sure you stay tuned!!

I've been loving this high waisted bikini from Topshop so much that I've noticed I haven't tanned my stomach and lower back due to wearing it so much haha! This set actually cost me £1.80 including student discount as the pieces were reduced to £1 each around November time. WHAT?!!! I still can't believe I got myself such a great bargain! It's really comfy and flattering even for my figure where my waist isn't defined. The cute little playsuit is from the Coachella edition at H&M it's sooo pretty and looks great on. H&M have really been surprising me with some of their stuff lately, and I can't wait for their collab with Kenzo as their one of my favourite designers. The sandals are my trusty Primark ones which I've had probably for a couple of years now and they're still in perfect condition. I believe they cost me around £5 so they're really cheap and the quality of them is amazing, especially for this kind of price.

What outfits have you been loving recently? Let me know in the comments section down below!

OOTD || Quick And Smart Uni Outfit

Good Morning Everyone!

What's a better start to a Friday than a nice and easy OOTD post! I thought I'd do a quick fashion post before my seminar this morning to share with you my quick go-to uni outfit.

I usually put an outfit together the night before so I don't have to rummage through my wardrobe in the morning and stress myself out because nothing goes together - I'm pretty sure we've all been there, right?! However, today has been a bit of a long morning already as I did my hair and makeup quite quickly (it usually takes me over an hour to get ready in the morning) so I thought I'd quickly put an outfit together.

I decided to put on a plain pair of Topshop's black skinny jeans. And what goes better with plain skinnies other than a shirt? A pyjama shirt! Yup, you read it correctly - I am wearing a pyjama shirt. Don't get me wrong, I didn't sleep in it! But it's so beautiful and the silky material makes it ever so wearable! I bought this beautiful shirt with matching bottoms (obviously) from River Island. To style up my outfit I decided to put on my gorgeous Michael Kors watch and Pandora and H&M rings and bracelets. The shoes I went for are my trusty and comfy pointy lace-up ballet flats (there's a mouthful) which I had bought from Primark for only £8! £8!!!!! 

What's your favourite simple but classy outfit?

Lots of love,

Recent Purchases

Hello beauties!
Who's been enjoying this weather? Me, Me, ME!!!! It is absolutely boiling in Nottingham, and I caught a bit of the sun. There is nothing better than having tanned skin and enjoying a beautiful weather. What I got up to those past few days is shopping, working and hitting the gym! I am determined to get very fit over the Summer just in time for my first girly holiday in August!
Anyway, here are pics of a few things I recently bought.
My little sister is obsessed with loom bands at the moment so I decided to buy some myself!!
Primark sunnies are the best. The prices vary from £1-£3. The white aviators were £1 and the mirror effect aviators were £2. 2 pairs for £3!!! BARGAIN!
Birkenstocks are a bit expensive, so I opted for the cheaper way and got some look alike sandals for only £5 from Primark. I've been wearing them every day since the day I got them and that was over a week ago. They are extremely comfortable.
This gorgeous handbag cost me £35 from River Island. Pricey but totally worth it!
I found this camisole in Vero Moda and had to try it on ASAP. It looks great on and weirdly suits my new hair colour! It was only £10, an amazing bargain especially as they accept NUS card so I got 10% off the bill.
This lovely skater skirt was reduced to £12 from I think £25 or £30 which is also a total bargain. It's great for this Summer and will look fantastic with a tan.
I've wanted to buy a 90's string top for a while now. I had a look around a local Miss Selfridge store and couldn't find any that I liked off the website, and you know what it's like when it comes to online shopping - it doesn't always turn out so great and something might not suit you. So I went into Topshop and found this lovely white top for only £6!!! I tried it on and really loved it. I will definitely purchase this top in more colours!
I've never tried Topshop's make-up but it would be a sin if I didn't buy these items for 50 PENCE EACH. I found this eye crayon in gold, a lip marker (lip stain) in red, and two sets of nail varnishes in variety of colours. I shall do a review on those products very soon.
This gorgeous velvet headband was reduced to £1 from £6 which is a total bargain for Topshop. Personally, I don't think I would have paid £6 for a headband as it's just an accessory.
