Denim, stripes & cake

So today I’ve finally had a day off work and am able to share my ootd with you all as I realise I haven’t done this in what feels like a long long time!

I spent my day off on a casual outing with my Mum and we went to a little cafe to eat chocolate fudge cake (which was absolutely delicious) whilst walking our little mobes…


As today was a perfectly hot summers day I dressed to suit the occasion wearing my new denim cut off mini skirt. Denim mini skirts are a massive trend this season and will literally go with anything on any occasion and they’re always a handy piece to keep in the wardrobe!

I paired this with a striped tie up bardot top as bardot and stripes are another big trend this season. I finished the look with a pair of old worn converse to compliment the cut off style of the skirt.

As for beauty I finally tried out my Kylie Cosmetics Koko K gloss and I absolutely love it and I will review this product on my blog very soon as the glosses are very different to the lipkits so keep you eye out!!!

Augustttt 

Now August has arrived summer seems to have disappeared! However yesterday the sun was shining and it was a perfect opportunity for a costal walk and an ice cold mango juice because I’m in love with the mango ☀️☀️☀️.

I have always loved the beach. However, when I was younger I tended to complain about my hometown as there was never really much to do however days like this and living part time in a city makes me appriciated how lucky I am to live on the coast as the views can be so beautiful!


Due to my love for animals and the beach recently I have become an ambassador for a company called Sand Cloud… The sell the cutest beach towels and every single purchase helps save ocean and marine life!

I have a personal reward code for 25% off, which I can share with abou all if you are interested in supporting marine life as well as buying a dope towel!!! The code is: LilyW25 so get ordering!!!

Anyway… Here’s my outfit of the day for you all….


I decided to go for a simple all black outfit which I paired my distress denim shorts with a lattice black body and dressed it down with a pair of havaianas.

Bohoooo chic

Hello my lovelies!!

Is anyone else from the UK adoring this fabulous weather that we have at the minute 😍😍😍.

Weather like this is what makes me appreciate living on the coast as I can visit the beach anytime that I want and go out on the boat whenever I want. So over the past week in this glorious weather I had to pop down to the beach for a little stroll because there’s nothing better than a fresh coastal breeze and here is my ootd for you all!


With 25+ degrees I thought it was perfect to whip out these yellow boho tied shorts as they’re light weight and breezy! Plus the perfect colour for this weather! I just matched them up with a simple tie front grey vest to provide a boho chic look


As for my hair I decided to try out the space bun look which has become very popular recently and I loved it as it really finished off my look!

PARDY PARDY

So this weekend my boyfriend threw a birthday party of which I attended and it was the first time we’ve caught up with people since we got back from Glastonbury and Mallorca so of course we got the inevitable questions of “how was Glastonbury” & “how was your holiday” from each and every individual. But what’s better than catching up with friends over music, drinks and pizza!


The party was more of a casual gathering therefore I thought a sheer pink vest (which is actually my mums) paired with ripped skinnies and heeled sandals was perfect for the occasion! 


As for glam I went for Candy K on the lips with benefits ‘beautiful eyes’ kit on my eye and hoola mixed with rockstar on the cheeks. I also discovered the power of a Lumee case and now I’ve decided that I NEED one ASAP! Unfortunately I forgot to save the Lumee photos from my snapchat so I can’t share them with you, rookie error I know 👎🏼.

Upmarket flannels

So as I said in my last post I’m home and it’s back to usual business with my blog!

First of all I was hoping that the weather would be half decent in the UK so I could show off my tan in shorts and a tshirt but no. How wrong was I, the rain hasbeen torrential all morning 😒. Meaning I’ve had to bring back out some winter pieces.


Plaid flannel shirts are a personal must have in the wardrobe as they seem to always stay in fashion and can feature in any outfit as the main focus piece or simply as an accessory tied around the waist!


Today I have decided to wear my plaid flannel shirt as the centre piece of my outfit with it done up like a shirt instead of worn as a jacket or around the waist. I’ve combined the shirt with a light pair of skinnies and heeled sandals, to contrast and brighten up the darkness of the shirt as after all it is supposed to be summer 😂!


I decided to try out the half up half down bun hairstyle as I am a massive fan of half up half down but I rarely incorporate a bun into the style, however with it being such an in hair trend this season I decided it would go perfectly with my look!

Zozo

So today I’ve spent the day shopping for fathers day and birthdays with my Mother, whom everyone knows as Zozo. The famous Zozo…. A basic summary of her would be; she always makes me look as pale as a ghost, she constantly copies me, she stalks me and all my friends on social media, she literally has her own abbreviated language but most of all she is nuts and everyone loves her for it.


Since I started my blog she has been so desperate to feature, so I thought today was the perfect opportunity to introduce her to you all… Mainly because I thought her outfit was pretty good today 😂.


 Today she is wearing a tan hat with a grey longline vest with leather trimmings paired with ripped skinnies and buckled sandals. Zozo has an obsession with hats she’s got about 10 of those hats in different colours so she pretty much wears them with every outfit.


Today I went for a simple pastel pink vest, alongside my pastel pink slip ons paired with some skinnies to channel my inner casual city chic. Finished off with some Candy K!

Moroccan Vibes

So today has been a partly productive day as I bought a tent for Glasto but my mood has been dampened (quite literally) with another very dull rainy day in the UK just adding to my worry for the weather next week at Glastonbury 😫. 


Therefore I decided to add a bit of spice to my outfit today in order to attempt to cheer up this dismal day. I decided to wear a Moroccan inspired printed crop in order to add spice with this top featuring a tie up front, of which is very fashionable this season. I’ve paired this top with some ripped skinnies and some brown Chelsea boots to provide an effortless sense of style.


I think Ronnie (my cat) must’ve noticed my fury at this dismal weather in June as he decided to join in with my blogging…


However, he wouldn’t fully cooperate so I don’t see him becoming the next feline sensation any time soon 😂
