Dress & Shoes - Missguided

If you didn't know already, like a lot of girls, I love a bodycon dress. I recently bought this dress from Missguided (obvs) as I thought it would be a great wardrobe staple to have with it being such a simple cut and subtle colour. I love a good nude shade and some of my favourite outfits are really quite basic and minimal, nothing too fussy. The dress is made from a stretchy jersey fabric and the perfect midi length - which might I add is a pretty good quality as well...not too see through considering it was so cheap! I always seem to go for this kind of length in bodycon styles as I think they offer a good combination of sexy and classy at the same time. 

Along side this, my new heels are my absolute favourites. I had been lusting after them from the Missguided Peace & Love Collection for a while but my size never seemed to be in :( So I was absolutely thrilled when I saw them back in and they got added to my basket in an instant. I've worn them recently on a night out and they actually last a long time before the heel pain begins so I was pretty impressed! I've linked both below :)

Pay Day Wishlist

 It's nearly payday...yay! My favourite time of the month where my wage is literally burning a hole in my pocket. Not only that, with Black Friday approaching I am keeping my eyes pealed for mega deals online (it's not about trying to survive in the shops) - a shoppers favourite day of the year. However, saying all this, I do need to reign myself in a little as I also have lots of Christmas presents to buy too, but as long as I'm shopping, I'm happy!

I decided to put together my current pay day list that I am forever adding too, however I've narrowed it down to my ultimate favourites from this week.

I'm totally obsessed with faux fur anything and this Missguided jacket is just to die. I love that it is a long length and the fur collar just finishes it perfectly - not to mention how cosy and warm it looks too!
I recently saw these ASOS camo jeans on Sarah Ashcroft and I instantly fell in love with them. I'm already a huge fan of the camo/military trend and these jeans are just ideal. I love the faded camo fabric as it adds a distressed/faded look, making them not too bold and 'in your face' as such.

I've also been loving midi skirts of late and this Missguided faux suede skirt is super sassy. It can be dressed up or down with a denim shirt or a long sleeve crop top, which I would then team with the equally beautiful Missguided chain heels that I have been lusting over too.

I really enjoy quite plain/minimal clothing (I know, boring!) and I recently set my sights on this knitted bodycon dress from River Island as I think its so easy to wear and great for just day to day wear. Lastly, no Christmas outfit is complete without a statement piece of jewellery and these pretty chokers are right up my street. The gold choker is from ARK and is such a steal at just £6! The silver choker/necklace is from River Island and is a bit more expensive, but still affordable. This would finish off an LBD perfectly. 

And there you have it, my current faves! I've linked them all below.

weekend vibes

So this weekend, I decided to venture outside for my blog photos instead of just using my room as a background. I feel much more comfortable taking pictures inside but I always feel an outside background looks so much better especially when it comes to lighting etc. I haven't quite got the hang of my camera settings yet, so I need to mess around with those (I'm literally useless with cameras) but my BFF did a fab job with what I gave her!

Anyway, besides my photo issues, I wanted to share with you THE most beautiful shoes that I was super lucky to win in a twitter competition River Island had running a few weeks ago. When I realised I had won, I literally couldn't believe it, they are one of the dreamiest pair of shoes I've ever owned. They are from the RI Studio Collection and are an amazing high quality suede with a lace up front and gold detailing. Sooo pretty.  

I love a black outfit so I wore my Brylie bodysuit from ARK Clothing, which is also really easy to wear as it has a back zip fastening, so no need to get tangled up in all the lace up detail on the front! I also put on my Missguided midi skirt (I have this in four colours because I love them so much!) and then as it was pretty freezing this weekend, I wore my Radnor sleeveless coat in camel to stay warm, also from ARK Clothing. This coat has also just gone in the sale so if you like it go grab yourself a bargain! ARK also have 30% off EVERYTHING at the moment, so I've already got my eye on a few things as that's an offer that just cant be missed! 

I hope you have had a fab weekend and I've linked everything I'm wearing below.

MG Lingerie loves

So as I'm already a massive fan of Missguided, I was super excited when I found out that they were expanding and putting together a very beautiful lingerie range. Who doesn't love pretty underwear?! I had been scouring their Instagram/Snapchat ever since I heard such delightful news and I must admit the BTS shots for the range looked so beautiful and really made the new pieces look even more amazing.

I absolutely love lacy delicate underwear and decided to pick out my faves from the range even though it was pretty hard to narrow it all down. However saying this, my total favourite from the whole range has to be the burgundy push up bra and triple strap knickers. They look super flattering and I love the warm burgundy colour. I think having pretty lingerie is a good confidence boost and I always feel that little bit more content knowing that I'm all matching underneath my outfit- this doesn't happen regularly FYI, but when I'm not rushing around probably late for something I usually try to make the effort! 
I also love the fact that one of the best things about the more lacy pieces is that they look super cute under sheer tops and with a plunging neckline, win/win!

I've linked my top picks below...
burgundy deep plunge bra  & burgundy triple side strap knickers
nude strap detail triangle bra & nude strap detail thong
black strappy lace triangle bra & black polka mesh thong
white strappy lace triangle bra & white lace thong
red strap detail triangle bra & red strap detail thong
nude deep plunge body

cute AF

T-Shirt - Boohoo // Jeans - H&M // Shoes - Public Desire

How cute is this T-shirt though?! Cute AF (sorry). I'm seriously lacking in plain t-shirts so when I saw this one I knew the I needed it in my life. I think I've only bought something from Boohoo once before so I was a bit unsure what the quality etc. was going to be like considering it was so reasonable in price. I'm pleased to say it was just what I wanted and the fabric is pretty thick, so no see through dramas, yay! I've tried to search this online now, however it seems to be out of stock :( hopefully it will be back on soon!

Seeing as everyone has gone khaki obsessed this season (including myself), I decided I needed some khaki jeans in my life for everyday wear. I hadn't seen any that I liked or were the fit I was after until I came across these in H&M. They are a mid rise jean with cute zip detailing on the pockets and are SUPER comfy. Basically the dream jeans. I can't find these online but they are £14.99 in store. Bargain or what. 

I'm also still pretty content with these Public Desire 'Satine' heels, which I have mentioned before are in the sale now so if you're after some white cage heels snap them up quick! 

Hope everyone's Sunday is as lazy as mine zZzZzZ!

Khaki tones

Bodysuit & Midi Skirt - Missguided // Converse - JD Sports 

Shock, horror. Another Missguided outfit! They are just my favourite, although I should probably ban myself from the site for a while as it's getting a bit out of control! I thought this outfit was appropriate for tonight as when I opened my social media feeds this morning, all I saw was Yeezy Season II. I'm not gonna lie, Kanye's new collection got me excited and I decided to post a latest outfit with similar tones. Chatting with the girls in work today told me they were not overly keen on Season II and I saw it got a lot of bad press alongside the good. However, unless I'm totally missing something, I absolutely loved it! Whether its my devoted love for all things nude or the fact that North was looking just too cute at the show, I was definitely feeling it! 

I'm always drawn to these shades and they work all year round for me. I love a minimal outfit that's not too fussy and I know I'm going to get loads of wear out of both the bodysuit and midi skirt (that I also have in 3 other colours...oops!). I also managed to get my mitts on some of the new Chuck II Converse Hi tops that are super crisp white right now! I'm dreading getting them dirty, agh! 

Did you like the Yeezy Season II collection or nahh?

White Nights

Dress- Missguided // Shoes - Public Desire 

Ever since Kimmy K took to instagram with her bodycon oufits and neutral pallettes, I've been an absolute sucker for a high neck/ribbed dress. I think they are super flattering and are just perfect for date night with your guy or even some gladiator sandals for shopping with the girls. When I spotted this I knew I had to have it and since I've had it on, my mind was already telling me that I need it in every colour! It's super comfortable and stretchy as well, which I was a bit worried about. I imagined it was going to be a nightmare to walk around in with it being so long and tight but it's totally fine. I think I would probably wear nude underwear or some sort of underskirt with this dress though as it is slightly see through when its stretched out!

As for my heels, I haven't had these Public Desire beauts off my feet - I love them! It must be because I had wanted some white heels for such a while and these were just what I was after. I have linked both items above and the heels are now in the sale so if you are after something super affordable, check them out! 

Happy Sunday everyone

Laced up

Bodysuit & Midi Skirt - Missguided // Shoes - Public Desire 

As you are probably aware I'm a pretty big fan of Missguided so my latest outfit is this bodysuit and midi skirt. I've been wearing quite a lot of black recently so I thought why not add some more to the collection, it's just always more flattering isn't it?! I've got a bad thing for bodycon midi skirts so I have this one in 3 other colours (oops) because they are just so ideal for day to night wear! Recently I've become a massive fan of the bodysuit trend as I find them so easy to wear and they basically just hold everything together, ha! I really like the lace up front on the bodysuit as it makes the whole outfit look that little bit sassier and is perfect for a night out teamed with a skirt or some skinny jeans. 

I had been stalking a few inspo Instagram accounts and found these beaut white cage shoes from Public Desire that I decided I needed in my life. I had been looking for a white pair of heels that didn't look too tacky and thought these were just what I was looking for. I feel like some white heels can look pretty cheap but I thought these ones would go with loads of outfits and are really affordable at the same time...if anything they are a major bargain! I've linked everything above if you fancy some monochrome vibes in your life!

Bodysuit & Skirt - Missguided // Heels - Zara (old season)

So if you didn't already know I was obsessed with Missguided, these are my latest bits I have managed to get my mitts on. It was recently my birthday and one of my besties got me this beaut nude midi skirt that I had had my eye on for a while. It's such an amazing quality for such a bargain price (only £12!) and is a doubled fabric that really keeps it's shape. I love nude and white as a combo and these shades together are definitely one of my favourite summer staples. If nude isn't your thanng but are after a bodycon midi they also have this skirt in rust, white, black and grey - a Kim K dream! I have also become a massive lover of bodysuits recently. I bought this white bodysuit a few weeks ago and I have worn it so much, I definitely am going to stock up. It's so easy to wear dressed up or down and is perfect for that day to night transition. I also think they are ideal for festivals teamed with some denim shorts! The shoes are from previous seasons ago but are  my go-to heels every time. Who doesn't love a lace up heel?  

What are your favourite summer shades?

Miami Pink

 Two Piece - Celeb Look* // Shoes - Public Desire

So if you don't know already, I am pretty obsessed with all things Kardashian and the main lady herself, KKW (Kim Kardashian-West if you have been living under a rock :P). Whether you love her or hate her, you can't deny her passion for fashion and her designer looks. Personally, I love how she dresses and she is definitely one of my all time favourite style icons. I can remember seeing snaps of her at the opening of her and her sisters DASH store in Miami in a peach pink roll neck two piece. I was instantly thinking, 'I need that outfit in my life asap'. So when I was browsing the 'Celeb Look' on line fashion site, I spotted this little two piece and knew I had to have one to add to my Kim K inspired section in the wardrobe! Celeb Look are a fab online fashion site that offer celebrity style at ridiculously good prices - ideal if you are a bit skint and need something new for the weekend... we've all been there! This particular two piece was literally £9.99!! Insane. How could you say no?! They also go perfect with the beaut Gianna heels from Public Desire a little bit more Kim K inspo right there for you!

Have you shopped at Celeb Look before?
