Wishlist: Outfits for spring

Hello my lovelies,

I’ve actually enjoyed doing these wishlist-posts, gives me a chance to see what’s new in the stores and also daydream about nice outfits :). Since we have seen a few beautiful spring days already, for this post I went to Very and Boden, and I built two outfits that I’d LOVE to wear this spring.

This first outfit is more casual, perfect for a Sunday spent shopping and people watching at a cafe or a beer garden. I’m especially in love with these wedges from Boden, WANT.

Wishlist: Very & Boden

So Fabulous Striped Jumper at Very | Classic Shades at Boden | Chelsea Bag at Boden | So Fabulous Curve Skinny Jeans at Very | Colourblock Wedges at Boden

This second outfit is a bit more fancy, but the denim jacket and flats mean that it works great both at the office and for drinks date in the evening. I have seen jewel prints popping up in various stores, and this So Fabulous dress is my favourite from them, it has such a gorgeous print.

Wishlist: Very & Boden

So Fabulous Jewel Printed Bodycon Dress at Very | So Fabulous Denim Jacket at Very | Grace Patent Structured Clutch Bag in nude at Very | So Fabulous Meester Extra Wide Fit Jewelled Ballerina Shoes at Very | Cat’s Eye Shades at Boden

I saw so many lovely things while surfing those stores, I wish I had all the money in the world! Haha, sadly I don’t, but thankfully there is My Voucher Codes, who offer a lot of amazing voucher codes for fashion stores. Right now you can get 20% Off Selected Summer Styles or a Free Gift for New Customers at Boden, and 20% Off First Orders when Opening a Credit Account at Very.

Double Vision: Double denim

Hey lovelies,

It’s Sunday, and it’s Double Vision time again! In this challenge my amazing friend Dani and I are choosing a theme, item, movie character.. whatever we come up with basically, and style those our own way and post at the same time, more about the challenge here. This week’s theme was chosen by me, and I chose ‘Double denim’.

Double denim is something that I have been a bit afraid to try, but as one point of blog challenges is to push each other to try new things etc, I really wanted to go with it. And it turned up to be pretty good, or what do you think? This outfit definitely shows that right accessories can make a ‘meh’ outfit FAB :)!

OOTD: Earthy cosy

Hey my lovelies,

Sun is finally shining here in London (I hope this doesn’t jinx it), and I wanted to post an outfit that would be ideal for relaxed weekend walks in the crispy but sunny weather. I was recently contacted by Barratts and they offered me a pair of shoes for a review. I went with these amazing biker boots (on sale now), and I’m happy I did. I’ve wanted biker boots for a while, and I like the fact that these are brown instead of more usual black. They are really comfy on, and they don’t come up to my calf, which means that they are absolutely fine on me even though they are not wide legged boots. They also have my favourite thing at the moment: studs! (Well ok I lied, studs and spikes BOTH are my fave thing at the moment.. haha.)

I teamed them up with this Gap cape that I found in a charity shop a few months ago, it had a whopping price of £4.50 ;). It’s perfect since it’s not too hot, but it still keeps the wind away. And the scarf!! I have wanted a red tartan scarf for ages, and I saw this beauty on sale at H&M for £4.. score!

Do you like biker boots? Barratts really has a nice selection of them, and all are on sale!
