Changing With The Seasons

I’m styling up a piece of your choosing (you guys voted!) over the course of a year. Here’s the schedule: January & February (Winter), April & May (Spring), July & August (Summer) and October & November (Autumn)…

Changing With The Seasons 2015 Round-Up

By December 29, 2015 Changing With The Seasons

So here we have it, the Changing With The Seasons 2015 round-up! If you’re a bit confused as to what this series is, then head over to this post which explains it all. I was initially going to be doing outfits but unfortunately due to my schedule etc, I was only able to get 6 of them up, which in terms of all the photos and editing and time, is still pretty darn good. But basically in short, the idea was to style one piece of clothing over an 8 month period, doing 2 outfits per season. So here’s what 2015 look liked for my old H&M pleated skirt…

~ WINTER – JANUARY – #1 ~


“The skirt really complements the jumper, especially when you nicely tuck it in. I added my super crazy Dalmatian coat on top for an added layer… I really am a rebel! Mixing black and navy… who knew it could look okay? Monochrome really is a fail safe option for any outfit.” Read the full post here.

“I made this outfit a little bit more snazzy with texture too. I’ve been dying to try out the whole ‘scuba’ trend and I’m loving it. The structure to it makes everything look a bit more sleek and perhaps even a bit more expensive.” Read the full post here.

“Surprisingly enough I’m finding this whole “Changing With The Seasons” thing quite challenging which I quite like, so I guess there will be those outfits which are just a bit… ‘hmmmm?’…if you get what I mean! It’s still fun though right, even if it isn’t anything too special?” Read the full post here – As featured on i_D Magazine

“I also realised that the colours on the bag matched the rest of the outfit perfectly. The wording is dark blue just like the Changing With The Seasons, H&M skirt (you guys voted for it!) and the tiny little leaf detailing matches the mint from the top. The little details people, it’s all about the little details…” Read the full post here.

“Okay, let’s just jump to it… THIS. TWO. PIECE. I don’t even care if 99% of this post is just all about the jacket and skirt, because looook. at. it. You won’t believe this when I say it, but I picked this up for £5.00 at a jumble sale.” Read the full post here.

“I actually picked up this dress from ASOS for my Mooi en Lief by Tolly Dolly Posh lookbook (FREE with every order plus a FREE iron-on badge… heh) and now I’ve worn it like this, I’m obsessed. I even wore it the same day with some cosy stockings in the evening because it just look so bad ass.” Read the full post here.

So that’s the round-up… it’s actually been a really interesting series to do… I may do it again in 2016 (please do let me know if you’d like this in the comments), but it was actually quite tricky… it was definitely harder than I thought!

You might think it’s easy to style up an item in your wardrobe multiple ways, but you often find yourself opting back to certain items because they just work so well. Also I think as it was a skirt… it’s quite a prominent piece within an outfit so you sort of have to style things around it rather than with it – if that makes sense? If I were to choose a favourite, I think I’d choose July… what about you? Make a vote below or leave a comment!


What did you think of this series? Would you like to see it back in 2016? Which was your favourite outfit? Leave comment below!

Changing With The Seasons #6 – October, Autumn*

By October 22, 2015 Changing With The Seasons

It’s been a while since the last Changing With The Seasons post, hasn’t it? I unfortunately had to skip out August’s summer outfit so I’m back at you with an autumn edition! This is actually the penultimate outfit in this series for 2015 as we covered winter back at the start of the year, so I hope you enjoy it! So, this is how to dress for autumn…

I know this outfit is slightly cheeky again like the last one (you can read that CWTS here) as I have hidden the majority of the dress away, but I think it works. It’s an outfit that has enough sleekness to it that the casual jacket and fun touches from the Dr Martens make up for the lack of excitement in their own way. The colours all compliment each other really well in my opinion and it all starts with that dress.

I actually picked up this dress from ASOS for my Mooi en Lief by Tolly Dolly Posh lookbook (FREE with every order plus a FREE iron-on badge… heh) and now I’ve worn it like this, I’m obsessed. I even wore it the same day with some cosy stockings in the evening because it just look so bad ass. Also, doesn’t it look way more expensive than it is? I believe it was in the £25 price range so it’s doing a pretty good job…

Let’s talk about the jacket that’s taking up the majority of today’s post; I love it. I actually wear it a lot more in real life than on my blog so even if you only see it a couple of times… it gets a good amount of wearing. It was only €5 at a jumble sale and it looks awesome. My family call it my ‘Grandma jacket’ as my Grandma had a jacket in a very similar colour but I don’t mind because it’s just one of those weird but wonderful pieces that I can’t let go of.

Speaking of the jacket, it’s another appearance for my floral Dr Martens which compliment my outerwear rather well. The little patches on the sleeves just pick out the right colours in my boots meaning I can get away with the sudden burst of colour and print. Any excuse to wear Dr Martens, really…

~ STAY TUNED ON YOUTUBE ~

Now the thing is, I do have a CWTS YouTube video fully edited together but our WiFi is pretty darn awful, so it would currently take me over 6000 minutes to upload one, therefore I am leaving my link and putting in this picture to be replaced by a video in the very near future (hopefully). Fingers crossed on the ‘very near future’ part. I’ll let you know ASAP!


What do you think of this outfit? How would you have styled the skirt for autumn? Leave a comment below, letting me know! 🙂

Changing With The Seasons #3 – April, Spring*

By April 19, 2015 Changing With The Seasons

This blog post was featured on i-D Magazine!


It’s that time again! Spring has sprung so I’m here with another Changing With The Seasons outfit post! If you’re new here then you won’t know that you guys voted for a piece of clothing for me to style across 8 months of the year. You chose a navy skater skirt this time around! I’m gonna’ show you how to dress for spring in this post, and I have a feeling you’re going to ‘heart eye emoji like this’.

WHAT I WORE: Emoji Print Top (Primark) // Cherry Playsuit (Primark) // Skater Skirt (H&M) // Leopard Converse (Footlocker) // Emoji Pins (Emoji Shop UK)*

OK, so I know this outfit isn’t extraordinary and is pretty darn casual but I basically just threw it on. Surprisingly enough I’m finding this whole “Changing With The Seasons” thing quite challenging which I quite like, so I guess there will be those outfits which are just a bit… ‘hmmmm?’…if you get what I mean! It’s still fun though right, even if it isn’t anything too special?

Instead of just going for the normal skirt and top combo, I added my Primark cherry print playsuit for an added layer and a print clash. I think the neckline of the playsuit compliments the shape of the top and even the prints seem to work hand in hand! I mean, who wouldn’t buy an emoji top? Who wouldn’t!

how to dress of spring ootd fashion blog emoji shop ukI think this outfit is missing something to really pull it together. Perhaps a jacket or a bag…? What do you think? I think perhaps if the skirt were a little longer it would have worked a bit better, but I’m okay with that! It’s definitely not missing emojis though! What is your favourite emoji? I’d say mine is the dancing lady; so sassy! 

Speaking of emojis, I discovered the awesome Emoji Shop UK the other day and they were awesome and sent me a few pins to trial out. They’re awesome. I can now officially express my ’emoji mood’ with everyone at any time.

how to dress of spring ootd fashion blog emoji shop ukWhat a perfect time to make use of the shoe emoji! I really thought I’d grown out of my Converse but when I slipped them on for this blog post, they fit?! My feet are weird, but they look pretty cool in yellow leopard print. These are super comfy (as are all Converse) and add that splash of colour and touch of skater style to what I’m wearing. I like them a lot and I must start wearing them more!

Here’s the video for you! I know this is weird to say but I actually kinda’ pushed myself to put this post up. I was in a bit of a rush so I basically threw the outfit on, didn’t realise that my hair was in a frizzy mess and that one of my sleeves wasn’t rolled up properly. My sister said to me “Be the change you want to see” (I want to see people being themselves, because what else is more perfect?!) and she’s right.

This is a little message from me to you, to just be yourself. I didn’t feel great in putting this post up but, this is me. This is me on the day when I’m a bit rushed for time because a thunder storm is coming, so I just threw on something that looked kinda’ colourful. So don’t hold back even if you don’t think you’re perfect. Be you 🙂 😛 😀

Changing With The Seasons #2 – February, Winter*

By March 6, 2015 Changing With The Seasons

I know, I know… it’s March and I’m only just putting up my CWTS #2 (meant for February)… I just blame February being shorter, I mean who knew 2 or 3 days less than usual could make such a big difference? I really do apologise though, I doubt any of you are really keeping track of the schedule, but oh well. It’s here now! Want to know how to dress for winter? Step right this way…

It’s definitely getting warmer, which I am SO excited about. I tweeted the other day saying that I literally love summer and spring so much. It’s just that feeling of stepping out the door and not having a freezing cold nose and not having to cover up your meticulously planned outfit with a coat. We’re nearly getting there and that means… COLOUR. I think this skirt (that you guys so amazingly voted for me to style) is a nice inbetween colour, because it matches the purple, but then it also sorta’ blends in those black tights that I’m still clinging on to.

I made this outfit a little bit more snazzy with texture too. I’ve been dying to try out the whole ‘scuba’ trend and I’m loving it. The structure to it makes everything look a bit more sleek and perhaps even a bit more expensive. I’ve had an odd relationship with Glamorous, but the more I wear their pieces, the more I fall in love. The other bit of texture is my faux fur gilet. It has been rather sad as you guys didn’t vote for it… but it made a cheeky appearance anyway!

I love my faux fur gilet, especially now as it matches my super adorable floral headband from Johnny Loves Rosie… but then again that’s rather sad too as it, keeps. on. braking! The stems of flowers just decide to pop off, so I perhaps wouldn’t suggest buying it, unless you just really like the look of it. Speaking of things we really like the look of… LOOK. AT. MY SHOES.

You have no idea how long I have wanted a proper (like proper, proper) pair of holographic shoes, and I finally have some. I do admit that they are slightly noisy (the buckles tend to squeak and rattle) and the zips are a little too stiff, but I can live with that… they’re amazing. I thank Boohoo for bringing them into my life… I will just point out here and now, that this year I’ll be working with Boohoo on a snazzy lil’ prom outfit… who’s excited for that?!

And finally, the video! I hope you enjoy the little video segment, because I do! It also kind of gives me an excuse to put something up on my YouTube channeleek, haha! I know each one is only short but it just gives you a little insight in to what the outfit actually looks like in ‘real life’? Let me know what you think and please do make sure to subscribe, it would make me very happy! Speak soon…

Changing With The Seasons #1 – January, Winter*

By January 26, 2015 Changing With The Seasons

Yay! The series has really started off. I can officially confirm that you guys voted for… the blue skater skirt! *applauds* I was actually really happy that you did, because I have fallen in love with it over the past few months. If you are confused as to what ‘Changing With The Seasons’ is all about, then check out the previous blog post. Exciting!

To add to the whole ‘seasonal’ part of this, I genuinely was freezing whilst taking these photos… that’s why there aren’t that many to look at (sorry!). But, that doesn’t take away the charm of the outfit. As I mentioned in one of my recent YouTube videos, I’ve been loving 90s style right now, so statement oversized jumpers have been ma’ thang’. I love them! I’ve paired up with Adolescent Clothing, which meant they sent me over their super cool Photo Bomb jumper. I first spotted it on ASOS, and adore it. It’s made me fall in love with primary colours, and even white.

The skirt really complements the jumper, especially when you nicely tuck it in. I added my super crazy Dalmatian coat on top for an added layer… I really am a rebel! Mixing black and navy… who knew it could look okay? Monochrome really is a fail safe option for any outfit.

 In terms of accessories, I decided to play it simple. I’ve been tossing and turning over getting some Vagabonds for ages, and I finally caved and got them. I used to have a really similar ASOS pair, but these are definitely something different. They’ve got quite a high heel, but they’re balanced out with a platform for comfort. I know white isn’t the obvious choice to go for, but I love how they look. What do you think?

Another new piece into my wardrobe is my adorable pineapple necklace. I have been wanting one from And Mary for ages and I finally got the chance! It’s beautiful. The detail is incredible and I can’t stop staring at it when it’s around my neck. Ooh ooh! Who can spot my french manicure? I did it myself and I’m quite chuffed. Cute and simple, just how I like it!

To top it off, I thought I would treat you to a video! I’m going to do one per ‘CWTS’ post, and I hope you enjoy them. Just the outfit in video form so you can really see how it goes together. Let me know what you think and don’t forget to head over to my channel and subscribe 🙂

Changing With The Seasons | The Vote

By January 11, 2015 Changing With The Seasons

Over the Christmas period, I came up with a new series idea for this little ol’ blog, and I’m thinking you’re going to love it! It involves your favourite kind of post (aka. outfit/My Style), but first I need your help. Read on to see what I’m talking about…

CWTS Textures

The idea is, that I will take 1 item of clothing, (whether it be a top, skirt or even a faux fur gilet), and style it over the course of 8 months to go along with the seasons. I thought it would be a really cool idea not only to help you guys gain some style inspiration, but also for me to remember to shop my wardrobe from time to time and work out new and exciting ways to dress up. The schedule will work like this…


WINTER: January & February // SPRING: April & May // SUMMER: July & August // AUTUMN: October & November


So in all of the listed months, there will be an outfit styling the set item of clothing. What d’ya think? Are you game? This is the part where I need your help. I need YOU to vote for the item of clothing. Now, you haven’t got long to do this because I need to get the first installment up, so if you want to be part of this whole series, you’ll have to get your vote in super quick! All you have to do is scroll down and look at each item, think about which you would like me to style, (whether it be for inspiration or just for pretty pictures), and vote for the item of your choosing, using the button below it. The most voted for item will be styled 8 times… Simples!

Changing With The Seasons Stripey Top Boden Johnnie B


Voting is now closed! Here’s the first installment.


A super simple piece which is super versatile and works well in lots of different styles. A safe option, but do you need some inspiration? Vote for it if you’re on a bit of a stripey top low. I love them, so I wouldn’t mind too much! It’s from Johnnie B at Boden*… but seeing as I own a couple of different ones, you may see slightly different ones throughout the series.

Changing With The Seasons Tutu Marks & Spencer


Voting is now closed! Here’s the first installment.


A skirt with something special! I’ve styled this before and it’s pretty darn cool. If you like pastels than I’d vote for this. Step out of your comfort zone and try something new, yeah? It’s from Marks & Spencer.

Changing With The Seasons Skater Skirt H&M


Voting is now closed! Here’s the first installment.


Another basic item but can be worked into so many different styles and vibes. I love this for grunge filled outfits. Perfect for the summer season… get voting! It’s from H&M.

Changing With The Seasons Pastel Gilet Choies


Voting is now closed! Here’s the first installment.


A new addition to my wardrobe, so styling this up would be perfect for me! Love how fluffy and soft it is too… IT’S SO FLUFFY! If you like Despicable Me, vote in… I have minion socks to match! It’s from Choies.

So that’s it! Get voting! If you want to be the first to find out which item has been voted the most, then give me a follow on Twitter. The first Changing With The Seasons post will be up towards the end of the month! Exciting… speak soon!

(Although there is a PR sample within this post, the idea was totally original and I was not asked to include it. Read my full PR disclaimer here.)
