3 Ways to Wear: Missguided Video

Hey Lovelies!

So a little while ago I made a  fashion video for my Youtube channel which included a three ways to style a blouse from Missguided. The blouse is a black sheer style with a cute heart design on the collar. I love a good blouse and collar combo so this blouse is right up my street and can be styled in a variety of ways. I decided to create a casual daytime look, casual night look and then glam out on the town look!

Look 1 Daytime: This is what I'd wear for uni or just a casual trip into town when it's a grey day. I'd wear a pink jumper to add a bit of colour, the blouse with the collar popping out to show the cute heart detail and then jeans to keep it comfy and casual for uni.

Look 2 Casual Night: I didn't quite know what to call this look as it's that in between night and day look so imagine you're going for a Nando's with the boyfriend or for a cheeky cocktail with the girls. I paired my blouse with my trusty denim shorts, my Missguided tights which add a little oooh la la to the outfit. Then finally my Miss Selfridge leather jacket which I like to throw on with everything.

Look 3 Night Time Look: So this is a glam, out on the town look! I paired my blouse with my Miss Selfridge shorts and then some high ankle boots. This look is perfect for a winter going out look but a little too dark now for my Spring time palette!

So there we have it, my first styling video! I'm thinking of maybe doing another one soon, if anyone has any requests let me know as I'm trying to think of a different item to style! Maybe my coloured jeans? Let me know in the comments below your thoughts :)

Pastel Overload: Outfit Post

Hey Lovelies!

I have been loving the recent pastel additions to the high street, they are a nice welcome after a winter full of dark colours such as maroon and mustard! I have been loving the whole pastel jean and blazer trend and may of added a sneaky couple of additions to my wardrobe.. whoopsy. I thought I'd show you how I've been colour blocking lately and how you can do it without breaking the bank.

There are so many pastel items on the high street at the moment that you will not be stuck for choice. I've been finding Primark brilliant for coloured blazers and ASOS and Zara for coloured jeans that even fit shorties like me! I picked up a neon pink pair of jeans from ASOS which at first made me think 'oh my, I will never wear those!' But now after a few wears I am now in love with them and always trying to think of new ways to style them! I've been loving pairing a very simple top with these jeans, my lace black Zara top has been the item of choice at the moment. But I also went out and bought a simple white t shirt from H&M and took inspiration from Frankie Sandford (link to pictures) who shows how you can wear white and pastels and not look like an ice cream. I've also been loving my pastel blazers, especially my mint green/aqua one from Primark which was a steal at £15.00 and brightens up any outfit! For a real colour popping look I've paired my blazer with my jeans. Definitely a look that will make you stand out but perfect for sunny days which aren't quite warm enough to wap the shorts out!

Blazer: Primark
Top: Zara
Jeans: ASOS

I may of also bought another coloured pair of jeans this week (uh oh) so look out for them being debuted soon! I never thought I'd be a fan of such colour in my wardrobe, but I'm really enjoying ditching the black and injecting some brightness into my wardrobe! How have you been prepping your wardrobe for summer? Any other ways what I can style my pink jeans with?
