Casual Sunday

Sundays are almost always meant to be spent with family or friends just relaxing in preparation for yet another week of hard work. To be completely honest, I usually spend my sundays either with friends or catching up on the latest book and television series which I am currently watching/reading. This week I managed to do a bit of everything all in one day, which meant I was rushing about everywhere. So of course, a comfortable outfit is in order. Once I woke up I felt I needed to wear something neutral with an edge, so I went for an all black look with a pinch of colour hence the kimono.

High-waisted jeans, a simple crop top, floral kimono and my favourite biker boots of the season (Topshop ones of course!). The crop top and biker boots definitely added an edge to the outfit. Plus have you noticed my new hair? Yes, that's right I cut it all off! I wanted to change my look and I've never really had short hair before so I gathered my strength and did what most people would never do and I love it! What do you think? Comments are welcome :)

This bag is the latest bargain which i found, I found it in the Warehouse sale for a mere £25 which I think is a pretty awesome price for a handbag and its definitely in trend this season! I think that my favourite colour this season is most definitely blood red, it always reminds me of autumn.

Those Leopard Print Shorts

The hot weather has finally hit London! With the heatwave, I decided to head to Regents Park to have a picnic with friends followed by some essential tanning time. I wanted to wear something comfortable yet chic. These leopard print silk shorts from Zara had been hanging in my closet for a while so I sought the opportunity to finally put them to use. Matching them with a simple cami and some monochrome heels, made the perfect picnic outfit for a hot summer's day in the city.

Comfortable yet classy, what do you guys think?

Summer Wedges

Ever since I could walk in heels, which since I can remember or by the cute photographs that my mother has kept away in her bedside table, my favourite type of heels have been wedges. I don't know what it is but I've always been attracted to them, comfort is definitely a driven attraction to them followed by style, they always look good with any outfit - fact! Basically they are all so amazing. Currently in my wardrobe, I must have around 20 pairs of wedges and it seems like every month there are a new pair which I want to get my hands on. This month, I have bought two pairs already and these are one of them. I had been eyeing them up for a while but was unsure because of how high they were, but since they went into the sale, I knew straight away that I had to get my hands on a pair and I haven't regretted my decision since. What do y'all think of these beauties?

Those Floral Pants

On my last day in Cardiff, me and Molly headed down to Cardiff Bay (one of my favourite places in Cardiff) for a nice lunch in the sun. Finally the sun was out and the weather had picked up, so it was warm enough for me to leave the house without a jacket! Actually a rare happening in the UK.

I bought these amazing floral print trousers from Zara a month ago, but never actually got round to wearing them because of the weather here in the UK. I really love floral prints, so when I saw them I knew straight away that I was going to buy them and Zara never dissapoints in terms of fashion. I paired them with some orange heels (since orange is THE colour of the season) and a simple chiffon cami. The floral pants definitely do all the work here and did I mention, they are super comfortable? A must buy for the summer season!

I adore this Michael Kors body-across bag! And it matches my Michael Kors watch! Perfect!

Let's not give the floral pants all the credit here, the orange heels are most definitely pretty cool (i love the colour and the style of the heel). No surprise that they were another amazing Zara purchase!

We met up with one of our other friends for lunch, Cerys and decided to head to Las Iguanas, which is a really nice Latin American restaurant. The food there was truly amazing but I got to mention that the cocktails are to die for! Probably is one of my favourite restaurants in Cardiff.

I decided to go for a simple dish - the Churrasco Fiasco which is skewered Chicken, marinated and grilled in a honey-comb peri-peri sause, it was amazing!! For more information on the restaurant, visit their website:

Maxi Pleats

On my second day in Cardiff, me and my best friend Molly decided to go to visit her grandmother - which I absolutely love. Grandma Prue (to which I like to call her) and her boyfriend John decided to surprise us and take us to visit Penarth beach, which is about 20 minutes away from Cardiff. It was such a lovely surprise and definitely worth visiting! Penarth beach has a cute pier which we walked along eating our ice creams (British tradition) whilst enjoying the amazing views, the only downside was the weather - a little chillier than expected but hey in the UK you cant expect high temperatures (that would be a miracle!).

To be completely honest, not that much effort was put into today's look. I was in a rush which is unusual and therefore went for a comfortable outfit. Maxi skirts are always an essential piece for any summer wardrobe, I absolutely love this pleated maxi skirt, its so comfortable and the colour is unique. The overall look portrayed a bohemian style, which is always in trend especially within the hot seasons. What do you all think?

I love the details and mixture of prints within these sandals! Perfect to match with some denim shorts or a maxi skirt like done here.

My beautiful best friend Molly always looking beautiful as per usual!

Just a couple of views of the beach from Penarth. If you visit Cardiff, I definitely recommend a visit to Penarth - it's only 20 minutes away! The cute little village gives you a taste of the Welsh culture. I have to admit that I have always been a Welsh wannabe, I love the country especially Cardiff!

Japanese Chic

So, after weeks of waiting, I have finally received my university results and I can proudly say that I shall be graduating from London Metropolitan University with a 2:1 honours degree in Fashion Marketing. In order to celebrate this amazing news, I headed down to Cardiff to reunite with my best friend Molly, who has recently returned from her 3 month volunteering experience in Ghana.

On my first day in Cardiff, I decided to wear something a little brighter and sexier than usual. I recently bought this pretty Japanese-style floral print Kimono from the Zara sales, which I fell in love with straight away which I wanted to wear, what do you think? Cute - right?!

As you guys have probably noticed by now, Mom jeans are my favourite jeans of the season. I literally wear them all the time, one - they are super comfortable and two - I love the retro look that they reflect. Crop tops are also in, paired them together and what a wonderful match, ey?

Japanese-style prints have been a big trend for the past two seasons, I especially like the Japanese-style floral prints. This kimono reflects elegance and an element of chicness. It has now definitely become one of my favourite items within my wardrobe.

The summer sales have got to be the best sales throughout the year, even better than the january sales! I have honestly bought some really good garments this time around, especially from Zara, to which is probably my favourite store - no surprise there! These black sandals with a wooden platform, I had been eyeing up for the past couple of months, but had never actually got round to buying and amazingly went into the sale and half price! So of course, I did what any woman would do - buy them without thinking twice! Love, love, love them so much! Like mentioned before I also bought the kimono in the sales as well, got to say Zara this time have an amazing selection of discounted garments in the sale, if you haven't visited the store as of yet, do so asap! The statement necklace (below) was also bought in the sale however from Mango, such a cute necklace! What do y'all think of my recent purchases?

Those Little Details

I'm a true believer that any outfit is made stylish with the right accessories. I think that most of the time I base what I am going to wear on a daily basis around which accessories I want to wear especially shoes! As you guys have probably noticed by now and by the name of my blog, I am unconditionally addicted to shoes, from flats to mega heels, wedges being my favourite kind. I am slowly building my collection of shoes and definitely look at them as being works of art instead of an item of clothing.

Here I have managed to make a very simple and casual outfit look that little bit more stylish with the inclusion of accessories. I recently bought this new orange mini shopper from Zara which I love so I thought that I would base my outfit around the bag, so of course I matched it with the same colour shoes and gold accessories. Orange is in-trend this season and continues to be in-trend in autumn/winter so definitely keep your eyes out for orange statement accessories because I guarantee you will make the most use out of them!

Monochromic Effect

I know it has been a while since I last updated you guys on what's going on in my life and my outfit posts, so I sincerely apologise for that. To be totally honest, I recently finished university so I felt I needed a long break, so now I feel fresh and fabulous and ready to dedicate myself 100% to this blog.

Punk It Up

Whilst in New York, I have to admit that the best pictures of me were taken in Central Park - my favourite place in the city! Such nice vibes and a great place to visit whether you are with friends or alone. If you visit my blog quite frequently then you've probably noticed that I do love the "punk" trend - biker boots with a studded leather jacket will do the job.
I'm quite confusing when it comes to my personal style - i do love a nice feminine look but can be quite the opposite at times since I like the 90s "punk" look also, honestly I like to embrace different trends and styles and I've come to notice that if you can pull it off then you truly have a gift - being stylish what else?

Retro Feeling

Yet another post dedicated to my current favourite fashion garment on trend right now - the mom jeans. I don't know about you but I just cant get enough of these, they go with anything literally and are so comfortable. I'm also a big lover of the "retro" style and these do all the work especially being paired with a crop top and some retro sunglasses, who knew it could be that simple?

Day 2 in New York

My second day in New York was dedicated solely to relaxing, taking a stroll through Central Park and visiting The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met - where each year the Met Gala is hosted).

Day 1 in New York

Finally I was reunited with a dear friend of mine which I had met in Barcelona last year! It had been one year since we last saw each other so it was so lovely to be reunited again and in New York!

I guess what most people do when arriving in New York at night is probably rest for a couple of hours before heading out into the town, but that was most definitely not the case for me. The first thing was to drop off my stuff in the apartment and then head into Times Square with my friend Lea. I literally couldn't wait to explore this beaitiful city and truly make the most of it whilst I was there.

New York, New York

Last week I jetted off to the big apple for the first time in my life! I've got to admit it, I am completely in love with the city and it was everything I imagined! Cant wait to move there at the end of 2014/ beginning of 2015. The future is bright!

I've got more up and coming posts of what I got up to in New York so make sure to come back!

Office Chic

London is one of the best cities alongside New York that you can see a variety of different styles in office wear. Well to be honest in any city you see it but London and New York are my favourites. Therefore I thought I would dedicate a post for this particular style. I had a formal meeting in the evening too so it was the perfect occasion.

Those Mom Jeans

The easter break went so quickly, like always time flys by when your having fun - fact! So back to university life it is, and since its my last 2 months before I graduate its even more stressful. I literally feel like all I do is work and study, which means no social life for me - boo!!

Girl Gone Wild

One of my all time favourite prints is animal prints aka leopard print. I just love it, always have, always will! Any outfit with a leopard print garment always looks that extra bit more exciting! Plus it brings out the wild side in a person - fact! No matter what season it is, I always manage to find something with an animal print, especially during autumn/ winter.
