My Style & Inspiration with Phiney Pet*

By September 6, 2014 My Style

Helloooo! Long time no blog. Sorry for the slight delay in posting, I’ve actually been quite busy and some of the posts which I was meant to post just weren’t coming across 100% tip-top, but I have one finally! Another apology for the fact that my recent OOTD/My Style posts have been so close together… I won’t be posting one for a while due to LFW, so I thought I would give you twice as much in one go! Today though, I have an outfit post with a bit twist. I’m doing a little thing with Phiney Pet and I hope you enjoy… (Inspiration images via Tumblr)

Frida, Denim & Embroidery (Tolly) // Circles, Monochrome & Summer (Phiney Pet)

Just as an introduction for those of you who don’t know of Phiney, she is an upcoming designer who I found through Style Bubble (Susie Lau’s blog). Phiney mainly paints clothing which I think is really cool and unique. One of my favourite things she has done was her SS 14′ jacket. It was so intricate and detailed, I loved it! For the first stage of our little ‘collab’ we put together some ideas for the box clutch via some images from Tumblr. I’ve been loving denim recently and I think badges and embroidery all mix in really well, especially with a summery vibe. I’m all about bright colours also so it’s basically the perfect mix for me. Flowers are a huge inspiration for me too, so of course Frida Khalo had to be mixed in! Phiney said that she accidentally used images which all involved circles, and it came out quite well! I gave Phiney some other ideas like including fruit and palm trees and the result is pretty cute! ^.^

What I Wore: Denim Jacket (Jumble Sale), Spotty Dungarees (ASOS), Pom Pom Headband (ASOS), Black Shimmer Dr Martens (Jumble Sale), Badges £3.00 each (Phiney Pet)* & Custom Lunch Box Clutch (Phiney Pet)*

I admit it, this outfit is pretty simple, but sometimes comfort is key. Although it is simple, it’s perfect for this kind of year as it isn’t too warm and isn’t too cold. It’s great for the transition between summer and autumn. Due to spots and denim being involved in our inspiration images, I obviously had to wear my jacket and favourite dungarees. They’re too cute! Phiney (Josephine really) also gave me a keyring which I knew immediately would suit my pom pom headband, so the outfit came together quite quickly. I also had on this super cute little crochet crop top but I completely forgot to photograph it. Grrrr!

To be quite honest the clutch wasn’t quite was I was expecting in terms of size and style, but I actually kind of like it’s quirky charm. Even if I don’t get to wear it out that often, it will always be a reminder of finding new upcoming designers like Phiney. I love the little pineapple and the spots and everything painted basically. It’s just so cute! I think on holiday it would look adorable with all your beach essentials inside… aww, now I really want to go to the beach and sun bathe… *sighs*

Finally lets talk about the little details. Josephine also really kindly slipped in some of her super cute badges, they’re adorable and I especially love the pastel ones. They give an added girly-ness to my denim jacket, which I also love. It’s a little bit cropped (aka. too small) but I’ve got a lot of wear out of it which is always good. Speaking of wearing, I haven’t worn my Docs in ages, especially this pair. I definitely need to get some more boot socks for these bad boys. I will not have blisters for winter!

Thank you so much to Phiney Pet for joining me in this post, I hope that lots of you (my lovely readers) will have a nose on Phiney’s site… it’s super cute, so I totally recommend that you do. I cannot wait to see your SS 15′ collection PP! Did you like the clutch Phiney painted? Let me know in a comment! Speak soon 😀

Wishlist: Getting Ready For Summer

By April 1, 2014 Wishlist

Hello lovely people! Today I have a Wishlist! If you haven’t seen on Twitter, I have been banging on about doing this post for sooo long, and I’m so excited it is finally here! My blog schedule has finally calmed down and I can just chill, so here you go… …Happy April Fools! No tricks here, so don’t worry! 😉

wishlist: Chelsea Doll, Peacocks, New Look & ASOS
Click on the product you like to buy!

White Caged Chunky Block Heel Sandals –
My love for this style sandal is unreal. I found them first on a blog and since them I have been looking for a cheaper equivalent, and what do we have here?! I’m so excited because I will be getting these and that makes me happy! They are just so versatile, and perfect for summer. I’m not a big fan of flat, thin strappy sandals, so these are just perfect!

Pale Blue Spot Crepe Boxy Shirt –
I love pastels, and I love shirts… so what more could I want?! Again, this will be on the way to me soon, but I would probably have preferred the monochrome one, but my size was out of stock so… *insert unhappy face emoiji* I think it will look really nice with a strappy dress I have (was in my old blog header) in spring time, and even nicer on it’s own in the summer!

Fabulous Flatform Sandals –
Another pair of sandals… and no I am not just calling them fabulous for no reason… that is in fact their name! I saw these on Twitter and I absolutely love them! They’re holographic and all colourful, and the straps are that lovely thickness which makes them look all swish. Definitely wish I hadn’t found these now…

Friendship Bracelet Watch –
Ahhh! This is already in my ASOS basket since it has dropped in price! It’s so gorgeous and very ‘festival’ fashion-y, and I just love it to bits! I’m one of those annoying people who love to stack hundreds of bracelets with frayed ends on top of each other, and this would be amazing amongst my collection! Practical and ridiculously cute! If I was made of money, I would get the pastel version too…

Embellished Transparent Waist Belt –
I love clothing or accessories which you can see through… well obviously not t-shirts or pants because that could get a little awkward, but I think I can make an exception for a belt! This is so pretty, but I’m not sure I could spend as much as it is on a thing which will go around my waist. It is adorable though!

Mini Patent PU Skirt –
Ahhh (again)! My love for pastel patent skirts is insane! I honestly could die for one right now. It’s soooo cute! I actually prefer the one from Missguided (here) which is also much cheaper, but they don’t do good images for blog posts… #bloggerproblems

Aztec Bikini –
This bikini is SO SO SO nice! I am obsessed with it! I have a pink frilly one from M&S but the frills get in the way when wearing it underneath other things, so this would be just perfect! It’s such a nice print, and the top is just adorable and totally the right sort of style for erm… my flat chest aha… it’s also such a bargain too! Definitely such a cute piece from a brand such as Peacocks!

Culotte Shorts –
Ever since Zoella’s trip on holiday last year, and her cute outfits featuring her floaty monochrome shorts, I have been wanting a pair! These are plain, but simple, and perfect for spring and summer as they are pastel! I could totally see me wearing the aztec bikini with a floaty kimono over the top. Perfect summer outfit!

Fat Joe’s Sweatshirt –
The most expensive piece of this wishlist comes from Lazy Oaf. I love the whole ‘foodie fashion’ trend, and this is a perfect way to mix pastel in with it. The perfect trendy combination!

#JunkFood French Fries Necklace & Rings –
Chelsea Doll, oh dear Chelsea Doll. You do have the best statement jewellery for people on a budget. These two pieces are insane. After the whole McDonalds or ‘McSchino’ craze, I am in love with these. I want to wear them all day long and just pretend that they are the real Moschino deal. I would like them please, please, PLEASE. *flutters eye lashes*

Thank you so much for reading, and if you like… leave a comment below!
