PINK ON PINK & THE HANDPAINTED JACKET


If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen my post of ''THAT'' hand painted Gucci leather jacket. Well if you have made it here, as you can see I went ahead and painted my own biker jacket. OK so it’s not quite Gucci and I'm definitely going to add some more detail to it, but I think I made a bleddy good job (if I do say so myself).
This was not planned but I love the matching of the top to the jacket look that's going on here, think I'm going to do it more often.
And lastly theses backless fur loafers are going to be my go to shoe of the autumn, I’ve lived in my red ones and these are just as comfy.

THE CHOKER NECK & THE ACCIDENTIAL HAIRSTYLE

Last week I headed to Selfridges Birmingham to the Missguided relaunch. I was so excited to see the new bigger space, which now includes shoes. The new lay out is amazin with touches of marble & rose gold, which I love.
 
And the best bit is  now being able to see pieces in real life as apposed to online & social media and to actually be able to try them on.
 
There was so much stuff  I didn't know where to start so I was choosing pieces for ages. I picked up this gorgeous Choker Neck Chunky Tunic (which is only available in black & grey online, I've linked them both below) which is perfect for the transition into Autumn. I'm going to have a go at layering over a shirt or something as it gets a little colder.
 
Here I've teamed it with some step hem jeans which I cut myself and these super chic tie dye Topshop heels. And if your wondering about the hair, I wasn't having a Mariah moment and having a hairstyle change, It was sooo windy that I was starting to look like I had been dragged through a hedge backwards. So whipped the bandanna off my back and came up with this sleek bun. Which I ended up loving.

THE FRILL COLD SHOULDER TOP

So we are officially transitioning into autumn, and if you are anything like me then you are not quite ready to let go of summer. Not that we have had a particular hot summer but I guess it’s time to start pulling pieces that are a little warmer. Oh wait! That sound like a total contradiction as this post is about this cold shoulder top...but you get where I'm going with this right?!
During this transitional period, tops are something I always find that I'm a little short of. So I'm always on the lookout for something that is not too summery and not screaming 3 degrees.
This frill cold shoulder top was the perfect combination as it’s a fine knit, yet the shoulder detail still gives it a late summer vibe. Perfect with jeans and ankle boots.
Here I’ve styled it with some distressed ankle grassers (which I gave a little chop as I was board of the original length) and my go to Gucci -esque loafers, which I adore and as super comfortable (see how I styled them with a dress in one of my previous posts here:)
Also can we just show some appreciation for the beautiful embellished detail on this gorgeous Gucci-esque bag? The perfect way to add some colour and detail to an outfit.
 
Hope you enjoyed this post sassy ones, I would love to hear your comments.

IBIZA DREAMIN'

Ibiza is a place I will always hold close to my heart and if you have ever visited you will understand me when I say that it is full of this magical energy, that you just can’t quite put your finger on but it’s highly contagious.
While we were there we visited a totally Instagram-able place called Jacaranda Lounge which is situated right on the beach of Es’ Cana. The d├ęcor is so dreamy, everything is white with a sort of rustic vibe. And those swinging cage chairs oh! How I wish they would have let me take one home and maybe one of the four poster lounge beds too.
The view out to sea is incredible and so peaceful with the soft chilled house music playing in the background. I would definitely recommend paying this place a visit.
Hope you enjoy this post, I would love to hear your comments.

IBIZA NIGHTS

 
 
 
If  you follow me on Instagram you may know that I've been to my home away from home, Ibiza! A few days of doing nothing but sunbathing, eating good food and night time strolls was just what I needed.
 
I have had this rose gold crop top a couple of years, I think I picked it up in the Zara sale for about £7.99. I really wanted to style it with some denim cut offs and as I didn't have any, I did a bit of my usual D.I.Y! To finish off the look I wore my lace up/strappy Mango sandals, which have beam my go to shoe of the summer.
 
 
Hope you like this look, would love to hear your comments.
