Military Crochet

  I don't know about yourselves but when I am unsure of a current trend I like to just dip my little toe into the pool of the trend to see if it suits me, which is exactly what I did with the crochet trend! I absolutely love the crochet maxi dresses which float around Tumblr but I know I do not have the figure or golden tan to pull one off!

Lord knows what I did with these jeans I got a bit snap happy and ended up with a hole on my thigh, but for this outfit I feel it kind of works. Simple and casual way to style crochet, what do you think of the crochet trend? Dipping your toe into it this summer? If you fancy it this top is great and a total bargain!

Madrid Outfits

Cookie monster

Cookie Doughnut Monster?! Everything really is different when you go away!

I am back with a very heavy heart from 4 glorious days in Madrid, the weather was wonderful, the company was out of this world and I did not stop smiling & laughing for the whole trip. For this trip as I could only take hand luggage I left my DSLR at home and got snap happy with my iPhone and it was really nice not feeling anchored down by a camera around my neck. So here are a few iPhone photos of outfits I wore while in Madrid and as I only had hand luggage I had to pack versatile pieces.  I always think the key to city breaks is to bring comfortable shoes so gone were my glitzy flats and in came my converse which I totally forgot how comfortable they were! If you would like a separate Madrid post let me know as I did not stop snapping!

Sorry the quality isn't up to my usual standard but thought it made a different post. How gorgeous are these Zara heels, they were love at first sight when I saw them in the UK but when in Madrid they were a lot cheaper so I really had no excuse not to buy them!

Have any of you been to Madrid? What did you think?

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine 13 - Pink in Paris


IMG_1406 IMG_8860

How gorgeous is the YSL packaging? Swoon! I went through my lipstick collection a couple of weeks ago and noticed that most of my everyday pink lipsticks I had actually run out of so with my John Lewis voucher in hand I bobbed on down to the YSL account as for some reason I just had it in my mind I wanted another and fancied a bit of luxury.

This is the second lipstick I tried on and it was love at first swipe, then I found out the name afterwards and knew it was meant to be! This is a gorgeous rose pink colour which doesn't have a lot of red in it nor blue so would suit quite a lot of people. I would personally wear this to work as it makes me feel really put together and it is not to in your face. I absolutely love the formula of the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine it is the in-between of a lipstick and balm, smells amazing and doesn't cling to all your cracks and I find very durable on my lips. Only thing I will say it is a lipstick you need to apply with a mirror in toe due to it being so balmy I find it does easily slide off your lips so you defo need to touch up the corners.

I think this lipstick range could be my new obsession and I am already itching to add a couple more. Have you ever tried them? What is your favourite YSL lips?

Outfit of the Weekend: Glitzy Leopard


Please tell me I am not the only one who actually dreads buying new shoes? Don't get me wrong I can appreciate a pretty shoe but I absolutely hate the process of getting them comfortable, sometimes it feels like I have the worlds most sensitive feet! Saying that when I saw these shoes pop up on the Dune instagram page my feet went numb which let me know they would be prepared to go through the pain for these beauties. I mean can they be anymore me, leopard print, pointed and glitzy! After all the nervousness they are very comfortable so now I am tempted to get them in all colours and get these heel version as they are very Manolo-esq, which is my dream shoe of all time!

Also any other short girls out there like me who struggle finding jeans I highly recommend these Zara CROPPED, yes cropped ( oh to be 5ft 11) jeans which are the most perfect length for my fun size legs. They do what most other jeans struggle to do and actually hug my ankles so I don't need to roll them up.

What do you think of the shoes? Bit too much for your style? I love them to pieces but can't work out if they are classy or a bit garish.. eek!
