Sailor girl.

 Top- Topshop £28
Jeans- Topshop £38
Shoes- Converse £37.99
Headband- Vintage (Free)

I saw this top on one a staff member in Topshop the other day and besides my major decline in money, I had to have it. The giant bow on the back was so eye catching and unique. I wore this top first with my green jeans and white chiffon shirt but today I felt like dressing it up a bit and working the nautical effect with the red jeans. I've had these jeans for ages now and they are honestly the only jeans that have ever fit me perfectly due to my rather large bottom and stumpy legs. I now own these jeans in red blue green and pale pink. You can never go wrong with a pair of perfect fitting jeans! The headband was a gift from a vintage stall in Clothes Show Live 2011 due to my excessive amount of levi shorts purchased. I really like these sorts of headbands as they are so easy to put in and handle in your hair.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to all my new followers too! I am trying really hard to post every day considering I have a monstrous amount of uni work to be getting on with so you'll have to let me off occasionally! I have also followed all your lovely blogs :)

A cold day.

Cardigan- Urban Outfitters £20
Top- Topshop £8
Skirt- H+M £14.99
Tights- Primark £2.99
Boots- Primark £20
Earring- Topshop £7.50

So I finally managed to get my photography housemate out of her lazy pit, get her dslr and take some vain pictures of myself. Hence the reasoning for posting so many pictures of one outfit- the quality is just too good. I woke up to a bit of snow this morning in Southampton so came to the conclusion that wooly tights, a fur scarf and knee high boots were in order. I love the hippie feel that the chiffon cardigan gives, I find it makes the most boring outfits interesting. The blue t-shirt crop underneath is a proper cute buy and only £8. Its a given that it goes sublimely with high waisted skirts/shorts and a charming cardy chucked over the top. I had to mention the earring- it was such a cool find, they are pretty commercial at the moment but I don't care because the feather and colours featured on the earring are far too me.

Grungey flow.

Top- New Look £9.99
Dress- H+M £7.99 (worn underneath top)
Boots- Primark £20
Socks- Primark £2

Went home today to have lunch with the family, and seeing as the restaurant is downstairs from my house there was more excuse to wear an outfit that has a winter feeling to it but with big knits or bulky coat to hide what's underneath! This surprisingly is my cheapest outfit I have blogged about, I'm actually not minted, just all I spend my hard earned cash (student loan) on is clothes, clothes and more clothes and of course shoes, who could forget shoes. 
I decided to put these garments together because the top had a grungey edge to it which I thought needed a gentle touch- hence the flowy dress. I also love these equestrian style boots with long socks poking out the top, these boots are amazing for going with pretty much every outfit from my bright green jeans to my white and grey spotted leggings.

Casual Cheetah.

Coat- River Island £64.99 (20% off)
Shirt- H+M £14.99
 Top- Urban Outfitters £10
Leggings- Primark £6
Boots- Jeffrey Campbell £40 (Sale)

The coat featured at the top was purchased with a lot of luck. I had seen this gobsmacking coat in River Island a million times and fell in love with it every single time my eyes laid eyes on it. I had to have it but at the time I was planning on buying my white Caggie Dunlop blazer for £50 from there so I had to make the most heart breaking decision between them both. A couple of days later I came across a flyer for West Quay Southampton student discount event. This event was too good to be true, amazing discount of shops such as Office, River Island, Republic, Topshop, literally every shop you could think of. In my luck, River Island had 20% off, therefore I came to the typical addicted to shopping decision and bought both. These both now hang on special hangers in a special part of my wardrobe (so so sad!)
The white chiffon shirt is a bargain for how versatile it can be, I love wearing it with my wet look leggings and chunky brown heels (picture to come)
The boots I have posted about before, they are my new found love but I unfortunately had to get the size down from me as the five weren't available, I can't physically deal with the pain for too long. I wear them on short occasions and I love how they get noticed! Such cute boots.

Outfitting galore.




Jeffrey Campbell £40

I'm so not a sales lover, all the rummaging through rails and rails of messy clothes just doesn't do it for me, but whilst surfing Urban Outfitters for cute finds the other day, I found myself being drawn to the sale, a stress free zone because after all you're on your own online shopping.  Lucky enough for me, my discoveries were great! One buy in particular I am stupidly thrilled about is my Jeffrey Campbell cheetah boots, I bought them for £40 down from £120 and they have now been put up in price to £70 (kerching!!) Another worth while bargain was the Printed Kimono Blouse for £20, it goes perfectly underneath my black fur cardigan from H+M, superb for winter layering. The grunge red crop top is a match made in heaven with my levi high waisted shorts, it also appeared in 90210 the other day- ended up shouting a the television "ahh she's wearing MY top" oh dear!
Theres not many items in the sale left but I would advise still looking, definitely worth the pennies.

b+w printing.

Black cardigan- £24.99 H+M
Print cardigan- £20 Urban Outfitters (Sale)
Grey Top- £9.99 New Look (Bargain)
Suede Leggings- £6 Primark (Absolute bargain)
Bag- £14 Urban Outfitters (Sale)
Shoes- £37.99 Converse

Took a loving trip to visit my dear friend Jess last week- visit now: http://2ndhandcinderella.blogspot.com/ Our coffee and lunch date meant I could show off all my new buys I accumulated over christmas to her! Of course mainly all sale and bargain items (the only thing that would impress jess FYI) The maroon suede leggings are a must have, as an essential to go with pretty much everything. I've worn these countless times already and for only six pound in Primark you can't really go wrong. Might even grab myself another pair. My shoes sometimes make me look like a homeless person and therefore might not be to everybody's taste but I would say my converse are also a principal part of most my outfits too, although they are extremely casual, they go with literally everything I wear.

A genuine inspiration to how successful I would love my blog to be. Appearing in magazines due to her joyous "What I'm wearing today" posts. A definite add to my wish list is for my blog to become more and more advanced and if i'm feeling really lucky- Charlene O'Rourke wardrobe!

Versace? no no.

Top- £26 Syd and Mallory
Skirt- £14.99 H+M
Leggings- £18 Topshop
Boots- £64.99 River Island

Going to meet up with my girls today, we're not sure whether it is going to be a lunch or coffee date so I decided on this look. I feel it conveys a splash of vibrancy mixed with street wear. The funny things about these leggings is that I almost get a smug look across my face every time I put them on; if I could have a pound for every time someone has come up to me and said "Oh my god, you have Versace leggings on!!!" I would seriously be rich. I no longer have the heart to respond with "Ummm..they're from topshop?"
