I'm pleasantly surprised with how quickly River Island has become my favourite shop over the past few months. I used to only really shop there now and then but after putting together some outfit posts I've realised that most of the more recent items I've bought are from there. I'm wearing a pair of River Island capri trousers which I bought via Asos to make use of the student discount so I'm not actually sure if you can buy these in store or on the River Island website. I've been looking for a high-waisted pair of cream trousers lately and at only £25 these fit the bill perfectly. I've worn them with this Asos fishnet vest which I very nearly purchased last week and then when I actually went to buy it a few days ago it had been reduced by 50%, it was obviously meant to be! I love the taupe shade of the top and the fishnet detailing gives it that added unique touch.

I'm loving all of the River Island statement jewellery at the moment and came across this amazing large jewelled choker style necklace the other day. I was really surprised that this was only £15 and as it was the only one left I had to buy it. I swear if this was in Topshop or a similar store it would be priced around at leas £25, am I right? I think this is the ideal statement necklace to immediately jazz up any outfit and could also be worn on night out with a plain crop top and pencil skirt to give the outfit a more dressed up feel.

Apologies for the severe lack of blogging over these past few weeks, I've been completely preoccupied with all of my university deadlines so haven't had any time to do much else! I've finally handed in my dissertation which is a massive weight off my shoulders but still have piles and piles of design work to be getting on with. Today I'm wearing this Zara panelled t-shirt which I bought a few weeks ago after spying it online. I really like the contrast between the nude fabric and panel centre panel, the little cut-out in the middle is a nice added detail which will look much better when I actually have a tan! I've worn it with my new Topshop Baxter ripped jeans which I bought over the weekend in Manchester. I've been looking for some good white jeans for a while now and these have been my favourite so far. I'm not too sure about the shape of the fit around the ankle, they're quite wide so don't took into my boots very well which I'm not a huge fan of.

I added to my ever-growing Mac collection over the weekend and purchased 'Blankety' which is a sort of dark mink/ nude tone with a slightly glossy finish. I'm sure that I owned this a few years ago and used it all up within weeks so this one probably won't be lasting me long either! I'm also wearing my Jacava 'Forever Yours' nail polish which is a very light and creamy pale pink tone, very subtle on the nail and perfect for the Spring/ Summer season. I'm raved on and on about how much I love Jacava nail polish so if you fancy checking out their website you can do so here!

Vanilla Slice

I'm super busy with my dissertation deadline at the moment so apologies for the lack of activity on my blog lately! I managed to take some quick photos before I left for uni this morning but the lighting in my flat seems to have got worse so I've had to edit them a little to make them slightly more clear. I bought this Zara jumper online after spotting in store, I love anything and everything nude and really loved the colour block style of the jumper. The bottom fabric is a non-stretch polyester which can be quite snug around the hips so I would recommend sizing up if you're interested in ordering this too. I'm also wearing my favourite River Island waxed jeans which have started to give a little lately! I need to put them on a super hot wash next time so they're nice and tight again but I'm not sure if that will actually work?

I've been obsessed with Jacava nail polish ever since I came across the brand a few years ago. I've tried and tested a few of the polishes before and I can honestly say they are some of the best on the market. The staying power is incredible and they also have an amazing range of colours to select from. I'm wearing 'Vanilla Slice' which is a very creamy shade of white with a slight yellow undertone. I haven't applied a top coat and you can even see in these photos just how well the finish is on the polish. I would highly recommend taking a look at their website if you haven't already here

Shaker




top: topshop
jeans: asos
boots: zara
hat: river island
bag: céline
necklace: asos

lips: rimmel apocalips 'big bang'

I've become completely obsessed with light grey and cream at the moment so it's no surprise that this is what my outfit entirely consists of! I bought this Topshop crepe t-shirt over the weekend, it's really casual and easy to wear but could easily be dressed up with a skirt and heels. I've worn it with my new Asps embroidered jeans which I purchased a few days ago after spying them on the website. I love white/ cream jeans at the moment and I think the lace embroidery down the leg is a nice unique touch. I don't think they have these left in many sizes now, I had to get a 32L leg instead of my usual 30L but there's hardly any different to be honest.

I'm also wearing my new River Island shaker hat which is kind of an oversized version of my Topshop Fedora with slightly more structure. I ummed and ahhed over this for ages but after seeing a few people wearing it I couldn't resist picking it up over the weekend. I think these large hats are great for covering up bad hair days and also add a stylish touch to a fairly simplistic outfit.
