Topman Black Denim Shirt


shirt // topman (sale)
jeans // asos (similar)
slip ons // office

I finally found a black denim shirt! Yay me. £20 in the Topman sale, which is a bargain really, it's a very nice shirt. Oversized for obvious reasons but I did manage to get a size small. I probably would have gone for an extra small but this still fits really well. It makes a change from the typical blue denim as well. What do you think? Feeling the black denim?

Monday Morning Inspiration ft. Filling Pieces


Image c/o Filling Pieces

Just a quick one. If you have never heard of Filling Pieces they're a brand from Amsterdam that make, as you can see, trainers. They're pretty premium and just absolutely gorgeous. I have wanted a pair for ages but the ones I wanted were too pricey/sold out/not in my size etc. They have just released the pack above, it's called the Rainbow Pack (for women). How stunning are they? If you're into trainers or pastels then these might be your thing. I am bladdy chuffed to say I've picked up a pair and I'll be featuring them on my blog soon!

Check out their site here to have a look. And no this isn't sponsored, I just wanted to ramble on about these shoes!

"Styled In Sepia" Dupes: Mac Lip Liner & NYX Lipstick


"oak" and "stone" lip liner // mac
"butter" and "maison" lipstick // nyx

If you haven't seen what Styled In Sepia lipstick looks like then give it a quick google. It's this stunning light brown matte lipstick that was a limited edition from mac sometime last year. You can find it online but for way over the original price, and it's probably been used. I made it pretty much a make up mission to find my own version of it, and it took quite a bit of hunting online because the suggestions were always a bit off. I've finally managed to find two lip liner and lipstick duos that are spot on dupes!

Mac's Stone liner with NYX's Maison lipstick - two dark greyish brown colours that combine to make a lip colour slightly darker than Sepia. 

Mac's Oak liner with NYX's Butter lipstick - these two are both lighter colours than the former. Oak is a light brown and Butter is a light brown-grey. Personally I think these two together are a perfect copy of Sepia. If you only want to get one then I'd say Butter is what really gives the Sepia colour, so just get that. 

Mac is easy to come by but NYX I found harder to get hold of. There is a UK NYX site, but everything good is always out of stock. I've ordered NYX products from Amazon sellers and a website called Fruugo. 

Hope this post has helped you if you've been on a dupe hunt! :)

Topshop "Binx" Jeans


t-shirt // asos
jeans // topshop (similar ones to mine)
sandals // topshop
bucket bag // primark

I am so in love with these jeans. I think they're the latest new style that Topshop have come out with (I could be wrong on that). I'm even thinking of getting them in black as well. These ones are a gorgeous bright blue, and they have a raw hem!!! Who isn't into raw hem denim right now? They're thicker than your normal skinny jeans, and they're not a proper skinny either. They're kind of shaped like a mom jean at the top, and then they get tighter down the leg. I'm usually a 32" length in jeans but I got these in a 30" because I wanted them to be a bit cropped. What do you think? Will you get a pair?

Matching Denim

denim shirts // topman (sale)

I went into Topman over the weekend, initially looking for a Father's Day present for my dad, but to be honest he's not the typical Topman customer. I had a browse in the sale section and picked up the light blue shirt. At first I considered it for myself (as always) but then I decided my boyfriend was more in need of a blue denim shirt than me. I then saw the black shirt and I let out a little squee because I've been desperate for a black denim shirt but a good quality yet cheap one hasn't been easy to find! Black denim just isn't as popular as blue denim when it comes to jackets and shirts. So now we've got matchy matchy denim Topman shirts. Couple goals? Lolol.

H&M Slacks vs Vans Old Skool


t-shirt // asos
trousers // h&m (similar)
bag // asos
trainers // vans via footasylum

Hey guys! Soz for the photo overload but I'm really pleased with this outfit and how the pictures turned out. If you follow me on Instagram then prepare for a few shots from this post haha. For once my hair doesn't look like a gross mop either, go hair. 

I'm wearing one of the classic ASOS forever t-shirts, go buy one now if you don't have one. The h&m trousers are new and I LOVE them, I've never owned like smart trousers that can be worn casually. They were on sale so they're gone now but I linked the closest version and tbh you can probably find the same thing at Zara. Also I don't know if I've shown this bag before? I've only just noticed how much it's shaped like a Celine bag (am I imagining that or am I right?) so I love it even more. 

Hope you like this outfit ^.^

p.s. that bit of fur in the second photo is none other than my cat making a cameo as he tried to escape from the room.

Is anyone else only wearing block colours? I am really into wearing block colour outfits that are full of staple basics like a v-neck t shirt or a shirt and skinny jeans or culottes. That's my life. I definitely need more camels and nudes though because these jumpers look so cute. Does anyone else see camel and just think of Kimmy K? I'm not sure why.

I'm disappointed because so far the weather this summer has been awful. I know I live in England but I swear we're usually at at least 22 degrees by now. All it does is rain, and all the sandals and slides I've bought are going to waste. Terrible!

Topshop Ribbed Popper Front Crop


ribbed crop // topshop
denim shirt // topman
jeans // topshop
trainers // adidas via size?

Just a quick one for today. I love love LOVE my new Topshop jeans. Keep checking back because I have another post coming up soon wearing these jeans and doing a close-up of them. I will talk more about them then! This post is generally to talk about my current love for white and blue. It feels like denim is everywhere right now. Not that denim isn't always everywhere, but it's like everyone's doubling up denim, wearing brighter denim colours, or not just sticking to jackets and jeans but chucking in more denim tops/shirts/skirts. I'm determined to triple denim in a post soon, I just need to find the right combo that looks good and not like cowboy chic haha. Hope you like!

Vans Old Skool (Black/White)


vans old skool // footasylum

You've probably seen these a million times before, but I am now the proud owner of a pair of old skools. I've wanted these for a few months and never committed, but I've been in need of a casual pair of trainers/casual shoes that I could just chuck on wherever and whenever. I have a pair of the old classic Vans in black but they are f***** after 3 years of wearing them on nights out and stuff, back in the Uni days. I'll be taking much better care of these. They look so perf with blue jeans, amiright?

My Beauty Face Products for Oily Skin


I've had oily skin as long as I can remember, and to be honest there is nothing that's really going to prevent it. I'm just holding out hope that it helps me look less wrinkly when I'm older. I highly, highly recommend the foundation and powder pictured here if you're looking for products that hold in shine and don't move around too much as the day goes on. The primers are good but I have heard amazing things about Make Up Forever's matte primer and the Too Faced matte primer for oily skin, so when I've used both of the ones pictured here up I am going to give them a try. Garnier's Moisture Matte moisturiser is a great moisturiser for oily skin because although it provides a good base, it isn't greasy at all :) I'm hoping one day I'll be doing this post again with holy grail products that cure my oily skin.... until then.

Oversized Tee & ASOS Ripped Mom Jeans


oversized tee // asos (similar here)
jeans // asos
trainers // nike via footasylum

These ripped jeans are bloody beaut, the blue really stands out in these pictures doesn't it! I've been that into the standard ripped knee jeans that just have the little slits. I fancy the ones that have huge chunks ripped out and loads of threads hanging off. You like 'em? And of course I went super basic with an oversized tee and comfy Nikes.

Nike Roshe Run Woven (Light Grey)


nike roshe run woven // footasylum

Welcome to another edition of my trainer collection! These lovely woven beauties were pretty much sold out everywhere but I got hold of them in a sale. They have a Roshe Run sole, so it's thick and oh-so-very comfy. The woven top just looks so intricate and cool, I do feel like I've got really cool/different shoes on when they're essentially just a funky Roshe. I've said before on my blog that Roshes are - in my opinion - one of the comfiest trainers money can buy. 

What do you think of these light grey woven wonders? They'll be styled up on the blog very soon.

Side-Slit ft River Island "I'm Wearing RI"


side split tee // river island
shorts // vintage levi's via we are cow
trainers // adidas via size?

I am so chuffed with this side split top. I got the last one in my local RI. I'd say it's a tad pricey for what it is (£20 for essentially a long t shirt) but it's a really stretchy, soft material that just feels very freeing and bouncy. This is definitely me getting in the mood for summer. The weather is Manchester has been crap for June though. *prays for sun*

Anyone else obsessed with platform/flatform brogues? I keep seeing them everywhere but I just haven't found my perfect, affordable pair yet. There are a few options on ASOS and ebay and whatnot, but I'm holding out until I find the right ones! The below pair from New Look via ASOS are cute though :)

DIY Ripped Knees with ASOS Mom Jeans


crop // asos
mom jeans // asos
stan smith // adidas via footasylum

Hello! So these are my DIY ripped knee jeans. DIY because when I bought them they were just normal mom jeans. I didn't buy them to specifically rip out the knees, but I was hardly wearing them and I didn't feel like they looked very flattering on. That said, for some reason with big chunks taken out of the knees they're suddenly really flattering! I think it's because it breaks up how super super black they are. I really wanted big knee gaps and not just a slit, so I snipped quite a lot out and I'm chuffed with how good (in my opinion) they look. 

The crop is new but has unfortunately sold out online because it went into sale. I'm a bit obsessed with light grey crop-tops which sucks because SWEAT PATCHES. You need a hardcore deodorant to survive a light grey top.

Monday Morning Inspiration


ASOS uploaded this Instagram picture the other day and suddenly I knew my life wouldn't complete with a black denim shirt (lol overdramatic IDC). I had a little google searchy search for some fab denim shirts and they're not as easy to come by on the cheap as I expected. Devastating. BUT I did find three lovely ones...

H&M £19.99
Topshop £34
