Because nothing says 'summer' quite like being dressed like a pack of skittles....


20 rainbow buys that will get you SO ready for summer

Because nothing says 'summer' quite like being dressed like a pack of skittles....




A classic denim skirt and sassy slogan tee is a girls summer staple.

There's no question about it, whacking on the simple (yet stylish) combo is WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER every dayumn time.

This season, the addition of fishnets is also advisable, which I'm totes up for. I've even upgraded my normal fishnets to a larger scale and have ones with diamontes on for when I'm feeling like a party party.


Skirt: Bershka

The Denim Skirt

Every year there is always one 'it' denim skirt style. Last year it was the A-line skirt with buttons down the front (come on girls, we all had it).

However, this year the must-have style is more of a vintage look, with distressed bleached denim in a classic cut becoming everyone's firm favourite.

The skirt immediately gives any tee a edgy and effortless retro vibe, and means you can literally throw on any tee/ shoe combo and it will look UH-MAZING.

Also, if you want a more jazzy style, forget about embroidery. Skirts are now being decked out with pearls, studs, ruffles, frayed edges and contrasting denim panels. SO 2K17.


The Statement Tee

Every season I treat myself to a new fun tee, mainly because I just can't bloody resist.

Although my T-shirt draws (yes plural) are now overflowing I could not leave this Bershka tee in the shop.

Why? Well, firstly it was only £4.99!

Secondly, the front boasts a red phone number with '(missed call)' underneath. It's more chic than my usual tongue and cheek tee's but it's still eye-catching and cool, so I thought I'd give simplicity a go.

It was only when I got to the till and they turned it round that I saw the bold red writing on the back stating, "EXISTENTIAL EMERGENCIES ONLY."

This made me chuckle, not only because of the phrase but also because I had even gone and tried it on in the changing rooms and still hadn't even noticed. IDIOT.



So, without further ado here are my top skirt/tee picks. 
Oh and psssst ASOS have a offer on: 


Offer: £10 off £75, £20 off £125 and £30 off £150

It's coming up to summer, so we're all getting a little more active, amirite or amitite?

Now, I don't necessarily mean 'active' as in doing exercise, I literally just mean we all try and get out more, do more things in the sunshine and yes, sometimes attempt to get that summer bod back.

I've had a little help this year from JD sports, who have got me sorted for my summer outings by kitting me out with a brand spanking new pair of Nike, and lifestyle wear from the new Pink Soda Sports collection.


[Side note: If I look uncomfortable in the tree, it's because I was. Not a fan of heights, even small ones.]

Let's face it, it's not all that easy to get yourself up off your arse and out into the open air. However, over the years I've discovered a few things are imperative to getting me up and at 'em.

1. A killer playlist, I'm talking KILLER

If I am finding it really hard to stop clicking next on Netflix I start the play some TUNES.

Spotify is really great (and easy) to create a gym or car playlist of your own, or just use one of theirs. On mine I have everything from Drake, Paramore, a bit of Craig David thrown in there and Jack U. Whatever is gunna get you PUMPED and leaving your comfy bed.

Trainers: Nike Air Mix*

2. A QUALITY pair of kicks 

Quickly whacking on a pair of trainers is another way of getting me out the house ASAP rocky. Firstly, because I know it will be like walking on a cloud and I ain't got time for uncomfy footwear.

And secondly because they are suitably stylish for any event. A new pair of Nike are a must-have for a casj Sunday brunch, exploring a city, running errands or basically just living life.

As my fresh new pair of kicks I opted for Nike Airmax, which are a lot more elevated than my usual Nike Rosche (I'm not gunna lie I have face-planted a few times, but I'm getting there).

Jumper: Pink Soda*
Joggers: Pink Soda* 

3. A CUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTE (and comfy) outfit 

The main thing that stops me from going outside is the thought of having to get dressed. Because I work from home I have become very used to living in pyjamas and trackies. Therefore, I find it very difficult to wear anything less comfy than a dressing gown, eg, tight clothes, can't work them, they make me feel like a saveloy sausage.

So, I was very thankful to get my hands on this new Pink Soda set. I was totes feelin' myself in the trackies, I absolutely love the elasticated detail and inside they're so fluffy and comfy. Plus, praise to Pink Soda who have cottoned on to the fact that most girls are forever cropping their jumpers, so have already done that for me.

Basically, I have literally lived in this outfit for like two weeks now (obvs with a brief stint in the wash) for work, brunch, shopping, walk around a bluebell woods, you name it. Can't stop, won't stop.




Finally, I will end this post with images of me attempting fitness because, duh, that's what Nike are for. I went on a ''run'' for about the first time in a year. I now know why I was always the last one to be picked for the rounders team in PE... 



How to get up and at 'em when you're feeling lazy AF

Don't we all just love to dress badass sometimes?

I like to think of this outfit as Kendall Jenner on the top, Kim Kardashian on the bottom (and rebellious vibes all over).

I've collaborated with Stylewise Direct, a wholesale fashion supplier, who provide everything a trendy woman needs in her wardrobe, from dresses, tops and shoes.

After having a little browse on their site, I decided to show you guys their best new season lace-up items, because, let's face it, no one's over the lace-up trend quite yet. It's just so daaaaamn BAD.

 (After all, I ain't wearing undies JSYK)

So, let me talk ya through why I'm digging this outfit, so much so that I'd go commando (soz mum).

T-Shirt: Stylewise* 

The re-worked T-shirt 


I am partial to a good rock n roll tee, mostly because I never grew out of being *that* girl with about five Reading Festival bands on her wrist.

The wrist bands may be long gone (even if I did keep them on for years after) but my love for hardcore screamo music (and black band tee's) lives on.

However, this edgy tee is slightly different to the ones I used to wear back in the day. Although we have all cut our tee's in half or created edgy slits in the past, our DIY ways are now all a bit 'been there, done that'.

Love or hate the Kardashian/ Jenner's you have to give it to them, they've given us some good new trends in recent months. The whole lace-up thing, slashed tee's, corset belts. Most of us own them all.

At first when I saw Kendall repping one of these cut-out tee's I was like 'WTF!? that's never going to catch on'. Yet, here I am, a few months on, repping the tee.

DANG the Kardashian effect.


Leggings: Stylewise*

LEGGINGS FOR THE WIN 


Although my mum probs won't be happy that these leggings call for me to go au naturel, she will be happy at the fact that they have now replaced my leather leggings that are worn AF with holes in. She even tried to replace them with a pair of leather jeans for my birthday, but alas I stuck in my trusty leggings, why?

Although I am fully aware of the faux pas of leggings, nothing can beat their comfort and I am so not about that lyfe of getting tummy ache or having to walk around with my flies down after eating lunch.

So, these leggings give me the stylish lace-up look of the Kardashians, but with the comfort of pyjamas - WIN, WIN.


Orange Eyeshadow? YAAAAS

Now, I'm not really one for beauty trends. However, I am absolutely loving orange eyeshadow at the moment.

I'm really a sucker for anything orange (even, my hair used to be the bright hue). This is most definitely the fault of Hayley Williams from Paramore, who was my biggest style influence throughout my teenage years.

However, in recent months orange eyelids have become a big, big thing and I am all over it. Although, I actually couldn't be bothered to buy a orange eyeshadow, so I'm wearing blusher as eyeshadow - breaking all the rules here. But hey, it works right?

Boots: River Island 
Cape: Vintage 
Belt: Topshop 
Hat: Miss Selfridge 

GIMME ALL THE ATTITUDE 

But shall I tell you what the best thing about dressing like a badass is? It gives you a little added attitude.

For shy little me back in the day, donning a hardcore band tee and black eyeshadow gave me just the right amount of confidence. And although my wardrobe is now undeniably a lot more rainbow than gothic nowadays, rocking my leather jacket and oversized tee often gives me that added boost when my self-esteem is low (and makes me feel that extra bit sassy).
