My Style: A La Plage… To The Beach*

By July 22, 2014 My Style

The other week we popped along to one of my favourite beaches, which is actually a quarry made into an adventure beach, and it’s really quite fun! I wanted to take some snaps of a summery outfit I popped together featuring a few new pieces to my wardrobe, and I hope you like this My Style post as much as I do! A la plage…. 

What do you like to wear to the beach? Let me know in the comments…my style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pommy style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pommy style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pommy style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pomWhat I Wore: Blue Daisy Kimono £18.00 – Now £12.00 (Kylie – M&Co.)*, Striped Top (St. James), Denim Shorts (Jumble Sale), Leopard Converse Hi-Tops €19.99 (Footlocker) & Pom Pom Headband £3.50 (ASOS)

Going to the beach for me is one of the hardest places to dress for. You don’t want to wear too much, or too little, but then you also don’t want to dress completely different to how you usually do… so for this trip, I went for casual, bright and of course a clash of prints. My shorts and top are both comfortable and practical for slipping in and out off, and my new kimono (finally!) is the best cover up, ever. I’m not really sure how this outfit works so well, but it just kinda’ does. I think just putting touches of each colour here and there will make it all tie in, even if the prints are all completely different and a little bit bold.

The print is awesome, and it’s the perfect flowy-ness. It’s a lot better quality than I would have thought, and seems pretty versatile even with the bold daisy print. My floral/random crown collection featured this little pom-pom number and the yellow perfectly matches my beautiful new shoes…

The massive sale was on, and I happened to notice a pair of bright yellow leopard print Converses on the side… expecting them to still be over €30 or €40, I was absolutely stunned to see ‘€19.99 from €74.99’ (less than £16) on the price tag. Mama Posh kindly treated me to them and I am so happy! My first ever pair of Converse, and boy they are gorgeous! Although they are bright, the yellow is the perfect mustard shade which means they are a touch more versatile… what do you think?!

So there we have it! I hope you liked this post as much as I did writing it 🙂 Just to leave you on an exciting note… one of my upcoming posts *fingers crossed* will be an exciting announcement 😀 I’m literally buzzing just thinking of it! Eeee!

Okay, well maybe a week isn’t too long, but to me IT IS! Papa Posh said that this dress wasn’t really me, but for €2.00 I couldn’t really say no! He was right, as I am not really a girly-girl, pretty dress kinda gal, but I think the way I have styled this makes it a totally different piece. The denim and my Dr Martens make it a lot more edgier and tougher, but the length of the dress still shows the flirty side of it. I really love the two pops of colour through the belt and the socks too! I think if this dress was any longer I wouldn’t have bought it as this length is perfect! Also don’t my Dr Martens look AWESOME?! (I think so anyway…) They look a bit green in the pictures, but hey ho! I am going to wear this outift a lot as the weather warms up!
I will have some pictures of some cupcakes we made the same day soon! I didn’t want to put them in with this post, otherwise it would have been ridiculously long!

My Style: Castres & Collars

By January 22, 2013 DIY & Lifestyle, My Style

photo 1photo 2Today we went to Castres to the Hairdressers. It is very cold, but I braved it for you guys, and had my pictures without a coat! We also had a nice Subway, which I haven’t had since moving, a nice Almond Croissant, and then afterwards we went to a tea cafe. As you can see I just had a trim, and then platted bits on the sides of my hair. I really love the collar trend, and I decided to wear it today, because I saw Becky from Lifestyle Flash wearing it, and I thought, ‘I must find that shirt!’.

photo 5photo 1What I Wore: M&S School Shirt, New Look Trousers, H&M Belt, Primark Boots & A Necklace from a Car Boot Sale! (It really goes with everything, and only cost me £2!)

photo 1photo 2 photo 3Yummy! Almond Croissants & The Tea Cafe 😀 The sign says…. no freaky people! Haha. Just kidding, it says that there is a knitting club on Wednesdays for €10 😀

What did you wear today? Did you rock the collar trend? If you did leave me a comment, and if you didn’t feel free to leave a message anyway!

My Style: Night & Day

By January 13, 2013 Beauty, My Style

photo 1 photo 2 photo 1The reason for calling this look, ‘Night & Day’ is the fact that I am working my new Monochrome Coat (€20) and then yellow and orange, so White & Black for Night and then the bright colours for the day, and the sun. I am on my balcony in the pictures, and the views here are amazing. I swear the sky is bigger…

photo 4 photo 2 photo 3 photo 5What I Wore: Zara Dress Top (Underneath), Matalan Peter Pan Top, New Look Orange Trousers, John Lewis Boots (They were £30.00 but I got them for £12.00 last year), 2nd Hand Dalmation Coat (€20.00) & 2nd Hand Leather Look Bag (€8.00). Make-Up: Miss Sporty Mascara & Collection 2000 Hotlights Lip Gloss.

My Style: Pop Of Colour

By January 9, 2013 My Style

PopColour7 PopColour1Yesterday we went to a place called Mazamet which is near Castres in the Midi-Pyrenees. Along the way we visited other little towns and villages, which was the perfect spot to start of my 2013 Style Series. It was extremely cold, and there was a slight drizzle where we were because there was a man made spring near the river. There were some French school pupils on a trip, and I think one of them said ‘Why aren’t they speaking French’, or something along those lines. The reason I call this Outfit ‘Pop Of Colour’ is because it was quite a cold and grey day, and there was so much fog you couldn’t see anything. My trousers where the ‘Pop Of Colour’ in the day, and so was the sky when we were actually above the clouds and fog at one point. (Where we live is very hilly, and high up).

PopColour6 PopColour3You can see my Ombre is starting to grow out 🙁 I don’t think I’ll have it done again either… See my How To Care For Ombre Hair: The Products Video here.

PopColour5 PopColour2PopColour4

What I Wore:WOW River Island Jumper, New Look Checkered Blouse (Re-Vamped), New Look Orange Skinny Trousers, Primark Boots, Matalan Beret, Les Halles Gloves & John Lewis Coat.

I love my coat! It’s really warm, and cosy, and also looks really nice with boots and trousers. I also love my beret, if I add my geek glasses it really works the Geek Chic look.
