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
