Just Say Yes: This is a great casual outfit for everyday wear because of the flat boots. It takes me forever to choose flat ankle boots and I found these are perfect, they are so comfy. The pattern on the shirt adds a little colour to an all black base. The dungaree shorts are really cute and the ribbon in my hair adds to that cute element. Finally the cardigan is just to keep me warm.

Save The Date: I love this outfit so much, the dress is gorgeous with a plain front and interesting back making it subtle but quite sexy at the same time. I decided to keep it simple and keep the attention on the dress by wearing black wedges and adding a black clutch. The wedges mean it’s comfy to walk around all night and dance away but with a great amount of extra height. This is perfect for formal events or dates.

I’m Waking Up: I wear these leggings really frequently because they are comfy and casual but look quite chic and smart. The bottom half of my outfit is tight so I’ve gone for a loose fitting top. The print on this top is amazing and it is definitely the focal point of the outfit. To dress this look up a little but still make it suitable for everyday wear I added chunky heeled boots and frilly socks. This just adds a feminine touch. The trilby adds a little edge to the look and it is a complete everyday look of casual chic.

Issues With My Sleep: I love the textures in this look. The leather skirt is edgy yet feminine and the top is a velvet top with ribbing in it. It has lovely colour effects due to different angles on the velvet. The studs on the wedges also add an edge to the look. The black wedges and same coloured tights elongate my legs, which is really flattering. This is a great look for a night out, with a leather jacket or blazer on top if it gets colder, or take away the tights if it is warmer. The wedges give you great height but are really comfy to walk in so they’re wearable all night for a night out!

Fast Times: I love this look for a more casual day. The leather effect of the leggings and the heels make it more chic and edgy so it isn’t too laid back but the floral frilly socks add a cute element to the outfit. The heels are chunky so they’re easy to walk in all day long but boost you up a couple of inches, making your legs look longer. The oversized t-shirt is the main interest of the outfit due to the striped pattern. Due to the size it is a slouchy top, but the waist remains defined by tucking it into the leggings slightly at the front – great for those days you don’t feel like dressing up too much! The bag is easy to carry around all day and has plenty of room for all your stuff. Overall this is a great everyday, casual look.

Long, Long, Long Time: This is a look for colder days when you want to wear a big jumper. The dress underneath is girly and feminine in shape and has a cute bird print on it too. My silhouette can be seen, as well as the occasional glimpse of the pattern on the top of the dress, through the holes in this loose-knit jumper. This keeps the look more chic and less slouchy. Creepers are a great way to add height without wearing heels. They add a little to your height without the pain of heels. These ones have studs for interest too. This is perfect for more comfy, slouchy days.

End The Politics: This dress is so simple in shape and easy to wear, yet chic at the same time. The baroque print is subtle due to the dark blue on black. It is edged nicely with faux-leather binding around the sleeves and neckline. It’s great because this dress can be girly with sandals or pumps, or it can be edgy with boots with buckles or spikes etc. I have taken a more edgy look here by adding chunky heeled boots with large buckles and a trilby. Due to the weather at the time it also happens to have tights with the outfit because it was cold. This is perfect for chic, easy everyday wear.

Give Me Reason: This is similar to the last look in that it is a dark dress with a simple print, here it is more contrasting however. It is also similar because of my choice to make this look edgy rather than girly. The bird print on the dress is quite feminine and cute, but paired with chunky heeled, buckled, cut-out boots, black tights and a black trilby it becomes a much more edgy look. Again this is great for everyday wear because it is really comfy and simple. It could easily be smarted up with a black blazer or jacket and you could add gold jewellery; either subtle or statement. The great thing about accessorising this look is it is simple enough to take some statement pieces, but also has enough interest to only have subtle pieces that won’t be drowned out.

A Likely Story: This is a more grown up version of something I used to wear as a child. The dungaree-shorts are really cute and girly, which is added to by the floral lace top. however, there is an edge brought to this look by the dark tights, chunky boots, buckle hardware and leather jacket. I love taking cute and girly looks and adding some items to make them edgier because it makes the outfits far more versatile and quickly grows them up while still being feminine. This is a great casual look for everyday wear and having my hair tied up with a ribbon adds a finishing touch to this look.

Old Lives: I have a huge amount of love for these leggings because they are bright and interesting, but not as thin as usual leggings so I feel comfortable wearing them as trousers. For this outfit I also wore a black chiffon shirt buttoned all the way up to add some detail and interest due to the collar. Then I added my bright orange jumper to keep me warm. This picks out the orange tones and colours in the leggings nicely. I then added my cut-out boots. I  usually wear these with frilly socks but decided not to this time and I really like the effect. I finally added a ribbon to my hair to keep it out of the way of my face and add a feminine touch to the outfit. This outfit is perfect for everyday wear, I frequently wear this sort of outfit to lectures at university, it would also be great for travelling because of the flexibility of the leggings, the warm jumper and the chunky heel on the boots making them super easy and comfortable to walk in all day long.

He Just Takes My Breath Away: This is a cute going-out outfit that could also be worn during the day, perhaps with a blazer or oversized, chunky cardigan.These boots are perfect for going out because they add a little height, elongate the look of your legs, and have a chunky heel making them easy and comfy to walk in. The leather skirt adds a little edge to the look, whereas the cropped top goes the other way and is really delicate and feminine with a lace back and a lace backed front. Here I have tied my hair up and added a cute ribbon, but if I were going out I would usually wear my hair down. This could easily have a leather jacket added

You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone: This dress is so easy to wear because it’s got an elasticated waist, but it doesn’t look tacky. It could easily be jazzed up with a belt; either thick or thin. For a casual look I added a blazer, trilby and boots. To easily take this look from day to night you could take the blazer and hat away, maybe change the boots for some heels and put your hair up. The boots add a little height, but are comfy with a chunky heel and the hat also adds a little bit of an edge to this look. I love the mesh detail at the top of the dress; it makes the line of the purple fabric super flattering. This look is perfect for day-wear and is easy to take into night-wear.

When I’m Gone: I love the print on this top because it’s so bright and fun and just says “summer’s coming” to me. I bought it in the sale several sizes too big but I quite like the oversized look. I then put on my leather skirt to add a bit of an edge to the look and tights to keep me warm. Finally I added my heeled cut-out boots. They are super comfy for all-day wear but give you that little bit of extra height. The items of clothing create a black canvas to really showcase the top and how exciting the print is. The ribbon in my hair is cute and girly too. For warmer days I would switch up the tights for cute frilly socks, and for colder days I would add a blazer or jacket in black.

I’m ‘a Need Forgiving: This outfit is about as casual as it gets for me. I loved these sneakers when I was about 16 and wore them all the time. They are now quite tatty but I can’t find anything I like to replace them so I still wear them and love them. I added cute frilly socks for a girly edge and then started a black canvas for my outfit with some casual straight-leg, black jeans with the bottoms rolled up. I love the look I get when I roll jeans up, it shows off cute socks or ankle bracelets you might be wearing. I then continued with the black theme and added a plain black, chiffon shirt; buttoned all the way up to look smarter. The show-piece of the outfit definitely comes from the jumper, which is a gorgeous colour and has lovely patterning on it. Again I have added a ribbon in my hair for a girly edge.

Deep in my Bones: A leather look with a feminine edge. The skirt, jacket and boots are all black leather, creating an almost entirely leather look. I love leather so much. This jacket is so wearable for everyday and on a night out. I love the edge that leather instantly gives to a look, adding a leather jacket to any look adds an instant element of grunge and I love that. Adding black tights and a black ribbon in my hair created a completely black base to show off my golden blouse. Against the harder leather this blouse looks so delicate and the beading and patterning detail around the neckline add interest and more of a feminine edge. This look is great for most days, for lunches with friends, for going out if you put your hair down, etc. You could always switch the jacket for a blazer or the skirt for a plain black one to make it a more girly look too!

The Identity Rules: The sheer shirt and heels add a smart and sexy element to this look, with the jewellery adding a feminine edge and the woven belt adding interest and tying in nicely with the colour theme. The only pop of colour is the jeans. They draw attention to themselves and make the look more casual, which is then backed up by the hairstyle

Jumping: These leggings are simply perfect for me. They are slightly thicker than normal leggings so I feel they can be worn as trousers; I am quite self-conscious when it comes to leggings for some reason. The print is bright and perfect for spring to summer, they are warm, but not too warm, they are literally perfect and so comfortable. To tie in with one of the many colours in these leggings I added a coral blouse with cute detail on the collar and a navy jumper. I then just slipped on my studded t-bar flats to finish the look off. I love having the ribbon in my hair to add that little bit more of a feminine touch to this look.

When You Talk Like That: This outfit is perfect for smart-chic. The shirt is smart and crisp and creates a nice, plain base. The jumper adds a little extra layer but I like that it is mostly sheer with the leopard detail on it; which adds a little interest. The boots are also smart and look cute with the socks. The socks add a little feminine chic with the frills and floral pattern. They also incorporate all the main colours in the outfit; black, white and red. The red jeans just add a casual edge to the look and th ribbon in my hair finishes the look off nicely.

We’ll be Kings Forever: A casual look with black jeans; adding a casual edge to a smarter outfit. The heels, blazer and blouse all suggest a smarter look. The print on the blouse and the frilly socks add a cute edge too. This outfit is really comfy and easy to wear all day everyday and I love the subtle details in it, such as the frills, the rolls at the end of the jeans and sleeves, the pattern and collar on the blouse. It has a small colour palette and is a really simple look which is quite plain but has feminine touches, making it cute, but not in-your-face.

The Stakes Are Too Important: I love this super cute print on the fabric for the top. I saw it and loved it so I bought some of the fabric and made this blouse. It’s such a cute pattern and to add to the cute vibe of this look I decided to wear these frilly socks. They look just perfect with the heels and give a contrast in colour to the heels too. The jeans and cardigan make the look more casual and the belt ties the red colour of the strawberries in nicely. Overall I love this look for smart/casual everyday wear. It’s great to wear all day because the wedge heel makes these shoes super comfy to walk in all day but look amazing.

That Challenger: This is a great all-black look with subtle details. The lace and crochet detailing on the top and the embossed patterning on the skirt add interest to this otherwise fairly plain outfit. The ribbon in the hair adds a girly and cute touch and the necklace and rings also add a more feminine edge. The boots have a relatively high heel but it’s super chunky, making these great to walk in all day long. The buckles and cut-out detail on them add more subtle interest to this outfit. This outfit is great for everyday wear but could be smartened up easily with a blazer or jacket.

Losing Control: This is a casual outfit which I wear to lectures and for general uni stuff. The patterning on the skirt adds interest to the look and the boots are so so comfy. They are flat Chelsea ankle boots and it took me forever to find some but they are perfect. The top is also black to make a completely black canvas with just the jumper as colour. The jumper is loose-knit and oversized, making it really comfy and easy to wear. Overall this is a great everyday outfit.

So We Put Our Hands Up: I love the combination of the gold blouse with beading detail; which can be taken from day to night easily and is really versatile, and the daisy print skirt; cute and girly. They become the centrepiece of the outfit; a black and gold theme nicely echoed in the other items. The bag and shoes both have gold hardware on them but are otherwise black and the blazer is also black. This creates a great canvas to subtly add to the blouse and skirt. Due to the flat shoes this is a great outfit for going out shopping or for a casual lunch and I like to wear it for just uni lectures etc quite a lot.

Us Against the World: I love this monochrome look for everyday wear. The heels aren’t too high so they can be worn easily all day. My obsession with leather continues with these shorts. I love the shape to these shorts because they are high-waisted so they enhance the waist, but because the jumper is short it creates a baggier look on top nicely. I also added a cute bracelet which I bought in a charity shop to add something more to the outfit.

Packing Up for Uni Again!: This is a cute outfit for everyday activities when you need to be comfortable and able to move around easily. This is a really forgiving outfit in that sense because the leggings are easy to move around in and the jumper is slightly oversized so it’s not tight or restricting at all. The flat shoes make it easy to walk around all day carrying things in and out of the car etc. The ponytail keeps my hair out of my eyes and I added a ribbon to add a touch of interest to it. Overall it is quite a plain outfit but really great for lazy days without looking scruffy or too casual.

Seize the Moment: I bought this t-shirt because I like how it’s short and I love the print and the detail in the rolled sleeves. I think it’s really casual and easy to wear but it has interest to it. It’s also a little bit edgy, as is the leather skirt; which I am obsessed with. It’s so easy to wear but adds interest to even a plain outfit. To finish off I added cute details with the dolly-shoes and hair ribbon. The patterning on the tights is difficult to see and so you only notice it sometimes but it ties in really well with the patterning on the top and complements it nicely. This is a really great outfit to go shopping in, meet friends, most daily activities. I love it because it’s subtle due to the dark colours and subdued patterning but there’s actually a lot of interest in it.

Fate Had Finally Found Me: The combination of the thigh-high socks and these black wedges is amazing for my legs. I love how it elongates and slims them. I found it was a little cold so here I am also wearing patterned tights underneath. I love the interest this adds to the outfit. The studs and leather add a more edgy feel to this look, while the top is a little more delicate in the beading detail around the neckline. This outfit is great for nights out and because the heels are wedges they are super easy to wear all night without a problem.

Mint Jelly Flats

Mint Jelly Flats

 

When I was shopping a few weeks ago I saw these in several shops and remembered the childhood memories of these shoes. They were something that most of us lived in during the summemy Mum non-stop because I wanted a pink pair I had seen with heels and glitter, but I don’t think she ever gave in, which is probably just as well because they would have been totally impractical at that age.

Anyway I saw them and I had to get some, the nostalgia was getting the better of me. So I went on eBay and looked them up. I managed to get these mint-green flat ones for £8.99 and they are amazing. I bought them in a size 4 and they’re a little roomy because I have narrow feet in a size 3 1/2, but I decided to go for the 4 so I could wear them with socks too. They are amazingly comfortable and great for everyday wear. I don’t have a single regret about buying these shoes they are amazing and the pastel colour is really lovely and a little different to everything else I have. I love pastels for the spring/summer and just thought these were perfect.

I have been wearing them quite a lot and on the right you can see one of the outfits I have put together with these jelly shoes. It’s a really plain and simple outfit with black leggings and a slightly-oversized white jumper, white frilly socks and these jelly shoes to add a pop of colour. I think the combination of the socks and shoes really adds to the girly and cute look because it really reminds me of how I wore them as a child. This outfit is great for everyday wear; I wore this all day at uni, in and out of lectures and lab classes, so plenty of walking between the two campus’ at uni.

I have also worn these jellies with jeans; both with and without frilly socks, skirts and either no socks, frilly socks, tights or thigh-high socks. They really are perfect for everyday wear and I love them so much. They come in loads of different colours and I’m really considering getting some flat ones in black too. Also I got them for a great price and they arrived super quickly. They seem really durable because of the thick sole and also they have a slightly higher heel for comfort when walking. I would really recommend getting a pair of these for the spring, summer and maybe even autumn if you think you would wear them; definitely worthwhile.

These heeled ones look amazing and I bought them for £9.99 from the same seller as the flat ones. However they are more rigid than the flat ones and unfortunately this makes them a little uncomfortable when walking in them for long periods of time because of where they bend they dig into my toes a little after a while; which is fine for a bit but it gets a little painful later in the day. They do look amazing and I will still get plenty of wear out of them but perhaps just not asa much as I had hoped.

Below you can see one of the outfits I wore these jelly shoes with. Again, I am wearing them with frilly socks, but that adds to the look. It’s a girly and edgy look with a school-girl-like theme. I recently bought this tartan skirt and I absolutely love it. The skirt, socks, hair scrunchie and shoes remind me so much of my childhood and I just added in a baggy striped shirt to finish the look off. It’s a really cute look and good for most activities so long as they don’t have too much walking involved. It has also been great to finally get my legs out again – is spring finally here!?
