WITH LOVE, FROM PARIS



Paris, the city of love. Such a beautiful city with lots to see, and a lot for free if you are under the age of 26. Thankfully we went a couple of months before my 26th birthday. Even on the Euro star, I was classed as a youth at the grand age of 25. We got free entry to things such as museums including the Louvre, however I did have to pay for an adult ticket to visit the Eiffel Tower. But I made it all the way to the top finally after many failed attempts in the past!  It was another busy day with lots of walking, so again I wanted to wear a nice but practical outfit. As you can see from the photos, it wasn't a clear day. Thankfully it didn't rain. I am the type of girl that packs about 37 different outfits for a weekend away. Come rain, snow, sunshine, the apocalypse ... I am prepared! As well as a few 'just in case' outfits.

I love spring style as I am obsessed with pastel colours. You can mix and match with different colours and it will never look over-powering. My faux fur (always faux, never real!) coat is from Depop. It's a great way to sell unwanted clothes and buy ones for a fraction of the original price. You can recycle clothes and save / earn pennies in the process. My mauve knitted body con dress is defiantly the comfiest dress I own. You can wear it both dressy or casual. Due to the vast amount of walking, I of course went for flat shoes. My feet were still recovering from Disney the previous day so there was no chance of me opting for anything else. Finally I added a statement yellow bag to break up all the pinks and purples while sticking to the light colour scheme.

A DISNEY KIND OF DAY



Ah, Disney. The happiest place on Earth. A place where you can forget your troubles, ride rollercoasters until you feel dizzy and eat Mickey Mouse shaped food all day. What more could you want? The one thing I do find slightly difficult is finding the perfect outfit for the trip. You want to wear something Disney (of course), something nice and something you can walk 1000 miles in without your feet hurting . My feet were definitely in pain by the end as we managed to clock up nearly 40,000 steps each. That was according to my phone which was in my bag so I don't know how accurate that was as we could of easily done more. 

So first things first, Minnie ears. These ones I did buy from Disneyland in California, however they are available from all of the parks. I chose the lilac ones as purple is my favourite colour but I was still keeping it classic. Primark have such an amazing Disney range at the moment, and best of all, it's so CHEAP. I picked up this top with my life moto on it for just a tenner. For Disney, that's super cheap. The shorts I'm wearing are denim, which were ok but next time I will definitely go for something comfier. Being an adrenaline junkie, I was all about the big rides (and the fireworks at the end of the day). So sitting on all those rides in denim shorts soon became a bit uncomfortable. I finished off the outfit with some American 90s vibes. Calf-high American style socks and some Nike high tops, that remind me of Marty McFly in Back to the Future 2. Unfortantly they didn't tie up themselves ... I thought autolacing shoes we're sooo 2015 Doc?!

BY THE SEASIDE



The one thing I love about living by the seaside is that when summer hits, I only have to step out of my front door and I'm by the beach. It doesn't matter how chaotic life gets, looking out to sea always gives this sense of calmness. With the weather being warm, I was able to just throw on a shirt dress and added heels to dress it up. The shirt dress that I am wearing in this post is from In The Style, a website that I'm officially addicted to right now. They have many great celebrity collaborations including Charlotte Crosby, Binky, Billie Faiers and most recently fashion blogger Sarah Ashcroft. This shirt dress is part of Charlotte Crosby's collection. I love her style as it is girly with a little bit of edginess to it.

This outfit is simple, so is great if you're ever in a rush to go out. Shirt dress, heels and go! Having dark brown hair, I very into camouflage type colours such as khaki, grey and camel. I feel these tones compliment my hair colour quite well. This dress has a baggy fit to it, which is handy when we are feeling a bit bloated. I added a pair of grey boots as I always like to be dressed up for every occasion. I've always been told "It's better to be over-dressed than under-dressed." I think this dress would look great in a pair of sandles or to put on while on holiday. It can go from day to night so easily.

MIRINA FAMOUS COLLECTIONS



Firstly, thank you Mirina Collections for choosing me as a Brand Ambassador for you beautiful jewellery. This stunning statement piece is great to use both day and night and can brighten up any outfit. The gems within this necklace change colour depending on what light you are in at the time. This means your outfit will be ever changing which will keep it looking fresh and exciting.

As my statement piece is so colourful, I decided to stick to a simple little black dress and boots. This allows the accessory to stand out even more. Wearing boots instead of heels makes this a great outfit if you need it to go from day to night. If it's still abit cold out, throw over a fabulous faux fur coat to finish the look off. I chose a pastel grey colour coat which I found on Depop to match the colours and silver frame of the necklace.

NEW YEAR, NEW COAT


Firstly, happy new year everyone! So for christmas I was given this beautiful coat from River Island. This light weight yet thick coat is perfect for the winter weather. The weather might be miserable but your outfit doesn't have to be. The collar is made out of faux fur (rather go naked than wear fur!) which keeps your neck nice and warm, and therefore there is no need for a scarf. Another thing I love about this coat is that you can wear it opened or closed, for a casual or smart look. For this post I have decided to wear a more casual look with this coat which I would wear to go shopping in the city or to meet up with friends for dinner. 
The jeans in this post are from Topshop and personally I can easily agree that they are the best jeans on the high street. I had previously bought a few pairs from Topshop when I used to work there with my staff discount. After leaving Topshop I didn't want to spend the full £40 on a pair of jeans. I have bought many jeans from other high street stores since and they would easily stretch or would fit tightly around my legs. After donating many pairs of jeans to charity, I have come to the conclusion that Topshop jeans are by far worth the investment, with or without staff discount. Complete this outfit with a grey coloured top and a pair of brown faux suede shoes, then you're ready to hit the shops in the miserable weather.
