Daisy Button Down



I absolutely love this skirt, not just because of the colour and the cute daisy print, or the fact that it has a button down front, which I have seen everywhere recently, BUT, because I got it in the charity shop for £4. I KNOW! Winner winner chicken dinner over here! Although I must admit I did trim the bottom off, as the skirt was originally more of a midi length. 

I decided to pair the skirt with a plain black, long sleeve top as it was a little chillier today. Then later on I threw on my huge cosy polo neck as you can see the skirt through the side slits! I do think this skirt would go with almost anything though, another reason I love it! 

Timberlands were the obvious choice for me as I wear mine, pretty much, every day. I think thigh high boots or gladiator sandals would suit too, but like I said earlier, it goes with almost anything. ITS A MAGIC SKIRT. 

I hope you like how I have styled my beautiful bargain!

Milestones



So very recently, this month in fact, I turned the magical age of 21 and I loved it. For me turning 18 was amazing because it meant I could go OUT OUT. I mean, life as a teenager in Surrey mainly consisted of drinking alcohol. Whether it was at a house party, down the park, or in a random field, (the epitome of class) alcohol was consumed which inevitably led to many a funny story. 

So when all the birthdays came around and one by one all my friends started to show up to college on a friday with a hangover. (thursday night was student night) I was so ready to join them in my heels, cocktail in hand, dancing round a cramped and sweaty club. It was all I wanted! (still ever so classy!) 

I did love the parties, a little too much in fact, I broke my arm one night, in a dance off, talented I know. But going out is what I really craved and finally, being one of the last of my friendship group, it happened, the big 1-8! 

Then I went straight off to uni which meant more alcohol consumption and a lot more of going out, but I’ll save that story for another day. What I’m trying to get at is that, drinking legally in a bar, pub or club is probably the best thing about turning 18. So why does 21 feel so much better? 

Legally, its really not more exciting. But the celebrating is. Being at uni in a different city, I barely get to see any family or friends from home, so birthdays mean parties and parties mean reconciliation, laughing at our younger selves and just generally having such a good time. I suppose the fact that these events become rarer and further apart makes them more special and as a result better. 

(Some photos are taken on phones so will be bad quality, sorry!) 

I just thought I would share a few photos from my birthday and a few of my friends parties that I have been to, just to show you that it really is MAZIN. So, if you have a birthday coming up, 21 or not, make the most of it, because it will be fabulous no matter what.

When I saw this jumpsuit I knew I had to have it, they are the most comfortable thing for summer that is if you get the right fit, otherwise you end up with a hungry bum and camel toe. NOT GOOD. I find this can be quite hard for us taller ladieeez. I’m only 5ft8/9 but its still a problem! 

Anyway I love wearing green because I think it goes really well with my hair, if I do say so myself *hair flip emoji* and who doesn't love a good leaf print in the summer?! I decided to belt it to enhance my waist and layer over a little white top, just because! Of course I have my lace-up sandals on as well because the sun is shining and the weather is sweet! Got to be done! 

Lastly I want to mention my amazing ball of sunshine that is my little yellow pompom which I got for my birthday from my gorgeous Jessica May and I can’t stop clipping it to every bag I use! I love it! FANKYOU JESS!

Hope you like my outfit!

LEAF a comment if you wish! (See what I did eyy)

Wedding Wednesday

This year I am lucky enough to have been invited to two weddings! In two weeks! Having only been to two before, excited was an understatement. Not just for the fact that friends and family are celebrating their love together (EWW LOVE) and everyone has a good old knees up *said in best cockney accent* and last but certainly not least NEW OUTFITS

On that note I thought to myself, there must be others like me with weddings or any other special occasion to attend this summer, who have nothing to wear? Therefore I must help them! I also thought I would share my ‘Do’s and Don’ts’ because you wouldn't want to look inappropriate now would you?!

First on my list is kind of a no brainer, don’t wear white. I actually wore white to both the weddings I went to when I was younger, but lets not judge, I was young and naive! 

So I would try to avoid cream and the surrounding shades because you don’t want to upstage the bride or even be mistaken for her! This rule of course is not always the case, due to some weddings having a theme and/or dress code but theres always an exception to the rule right?

Secondly in regard to colour, black is acceptable, but who really wants to wear black anyway? Colour is where its at! 

Thirdly, you don’t have to wear a dress! Do mix it up with wide-leg trousers are right on trend at the mo, no matter what the length, you could even wear Co-ords. Jumpsuits and Playsuits are always acceptable too, especially those with an interesting cut and style. 

Now just for a personal opinion and tip, florals always go down well. In fact, any print at all! Block colours are nice when you style them right, but why not wow with a sassy little flowery number! 

So, I have been scouring the internet since January for my outfits, and found this amazing maxi dress from ASOS.

I wore this for the first wedding. Its colourful, summery and appropriate for all ages I would say! However, of course I needed another outfit, as I couldn’t possibly wear the same thing.

I decided to go for a similar style as I was comfortable and like the one before, however a change of colour and pattern was completely necessary. The dress below is the second one I chose and I think its pretty fabulous and I feel like a princess in it! Just like every girl should in a dress!

I picked up some white and cork wedges from Primark which go perfectly with both my dresses and a white batwing cardigan for the chilly evenings, because white accessories are acceptable and versatile! But I have decided to leave it up to you to accessorise so you can put your own personal style to your outfit. 

I have gathered together a few more outfits which should wow your fellow guests and will hopefully inspire your shopping.

Today I am going to share with you my favourite trick for a quick new outfit this summer! I do this with all my maxi skirts and its is the perfect way to come up with a new look for absolutely no extra money whatsoever! 

All I simply do is hitch up the waistband of my skirt, just above my boobs and belt it round my waist and VOILA! a new midi dress! Of course, not all maxi’s will be able to do it, only those with an elasticated waist and made from a jersey-like material. Also, look out for belt loops which can easily be unpicked or hidden! 

However if you haven’t got one, I would seriously invest. 2 outfits in one! what more could you want? They are so cheap, whether you are getting one from Primark, which should only set you back £10 or less or you have a little browse on eBay where they are going even cheaper! 

You can style yours however you like for daytime or evening and they are the quickest outfit ever! Today I was being a lady who lunches (mmm food) and this seemed perfect for hiding my full belly. Hope you like it!

Let me know if you do things like this with any of your other items! I need to know these tips! 

Thanks for reading!

High Necks & Patterned Legs

Lace Up Flats - Primark (Similar)
Lipstick Shade Plumalicious - BeautyUK

So, I am unsure about high necks as I have rather a few chins and they tend to collect or rest upon my top! But this little number was in the sale and the neck looked rather baggy so I thought I may get away with it! I actually kind of love it now and have put it into my ‘classy top’ section of my wardrobe! 

My peg trousers you may have seen me in before in khaki and black, I said in a previous post that I have 5 pairs of these as I love them so much and they are so comfy! These ones are a little more jazzy and eye-catching but I love the pattern and its probably the only yellow/gold thing in my wardrobe! Anything for a bit more colour ey! 

Lastly my shoes are an amazing little lace-up Altuzarra dupe from Primark and perfect for summer, although my amazing (not) self-timer photography skills, cropped the end of my feet off! 

I also thought I would start telling you about my lipstick as I believe it can make an outfit! It is a dark, berry red/purple colour and I love it because it matches my hair! It is so cheap as well from BeautyUK and I think my lovely housemate bought it for me from Superdrug! 

So I hope you like how I have styled my funky trews and baggy turtle neck! Thankyou for reading if you have!

So I have been absent for longer than intended due to my immune system being as weak as a single vodka and coke. I have had fevers, colds, dodgy stomachs and I am currently on 8 penicillin a day for tonsillitis. NOT good. Anyway I am back in Surrey now for Summer and have my Mumma looking after me, the best thing when you’re feeling ill I think! 

 So I decided to take the photos in direct sunlight and have weird shadows all over my face. Nice one Liv. So sorry about that guys! Anyway I managed to salvage them somewhat so I could show you my favourite coat at the moment. I haven’t been anywhere without this lightweight mac from Primark recently. It’s the perfect coat for english summertime, when it gets chilly in the evenings and to be honest in the daytime too! 

This little crop is my new favourite top for the summer although its black, I am starting to appreciate a stripe a lot more every now and then, despite being told by everyone to avoid horizontals as they make you look larger. Well I have decided that I don’t care anymore! I like them so I shall wear them! Also I am going to try and start tagging my jewellery, which will mostly be large hoop earrings like the ones I have in now. The bigger the better in my opinion! 

Also, I haven’t had my hair cut! Its just tucked in! I kind of liked it like this but I would never cut it this short! I’m pretty sure, half my brain is hidden up in my barnet, also its pretty frizzy today, apologies again. Anyway I hope you like my outfit and hopefully I will be on here a lot more! Looking forward to writing some new posts and getting all your opinions!
