How To Dress Your Legs This Season: Hero Pieces for The Transitional Season

Trousers, jeans, or even a skirt, the time is now to transition your wardrobe for warmer weather! It seems a little bit hopeful, but sooner than later you’ll be needing to ditch your thermal leggings for something a little less heavy duty. With a whole new season ahead of us, there is so much opportunity to change up our style, and a new season wardrobe starts with the bottoms. These are the pieces that you’ll be wearing over and over again, with t-shirts, blazers, jumpers…

For this post, I’ve rounded up the three hero pieces that I’ll be dressing my legs in for the foreseeable months, to take me from a night out to Sunday brunch with the girls. So grab a snack and a cup of tea, and get ready to read about the pieces that your legs will be lusting over.

1. Delicate Florals



Beret – Mango

Necklace – Primark

Top – Topshop

Blazer – Primark

Trousers – Primark

Boots – Primark

Dress them up or down, a pair of delicate floral trousers are the piece sure to give you that Parisian chic look in an instant this season. This pair are a steal at only £7.00 in Primark, warm enough to keep your legs covered for the colder days, whilst still providing an on trend floral pattern to bring you into Spring. Pair with tailored pieces such as an oversized blazer or button down shirt for instant day to day glam.

2. Flared Tailoring



Scarf (worn as choker) – Zara

Top – River Island

Trousers – Primark

Boots – H&M

Flared tailoring, especially in trousers is here to stay so go and grab a pair now! I opted for a sleek black pair, perfect to take you from the office to the dancefloor, and so versatile to be styled with a number of different tops and blouses. For an evening look, pair with a satin blouse. Hot pink, lime green and lavender are this season’s colour palette and look gorgeous in satin. For daywear, go for cool girl style with a blazer and v-neck tee. Heels or heeled boots are essential with this style of trouser, although don’t feel you have to go overboard, let the trousers do the talking.

3. Flared Jeans


Jumper – Joules

Coat – Primark

Bag – New Look

Jeans – River Island

Boots – Primark

70’s style flare jeans are back with a vengeance and I’m so here for it! I’ll be wearing mine throughout Spring and Summer but for now they look perfectly nostalgic styled with my super fluffy striped jumper from Joules. I plan on styling mine with a beret à la Jackie Burkhart from That 70’s Show aka my ultimate style crush.



OOTD: Autumn Hats

Today I have two posts in one! I already had two outfits waiting to be posted and since they both involved hats I thought I may as well combine the two. Hats are a huge trend for this season, personally, I’m still obsessing over the crazy fluffy baker boy style hats Miu Miu sent down the catwalk for their A/W17 shows (if you’re not convinced, check out their shoot they did for LOVE Magazine with the Muppets, it’s incredible).

There are two main styles that have been cropping up everywhere lately, and that’s the beret and the baker boy. Being a daring young fashion victim I naturally have decided to try both of these hat trends, and thought I’d show you a little bit about how I styled both of them.

1. The Beret



Beret – Mango

Jumper – Primark

Coat – Zara

Tights – Primark

Boots – H&M

2. The Baker Boy


Hat – Accessorize

Choker – Accessorize

Top – Missguided

Jeans – Missguided

Shoes – Zara



OOTD: Birthday Suit


I’m nineteen! As sad as I am to be only one year away from not being a teenager anymore, I’m so excited for what nineteen has to offer, although I have to say, looking back at the last year of my life it has some pretty big boots to fill! As has become tradition, I spent the day in Brighton with my friends, eating cake, drinking Pimms and of course, taking lots of photos.

My outfit was of course mainly pink as you can see, but the main thing I reeeaaallly want to speak about are my earrings. I’m OBSESSED with them. I found them in Lovisa and fell in love, the moment I saw them I envisioned them with a low, sleek ponytail (as seen above) and a grey bodycon dress for when I’m going out. They were the perfect detail for my birthday outfit, pink and grey is one of my most favourite colour combinations. I also got to rock my new Topshop sale bargains, these beautiful satin pink creeper/trainer type things were only £10!


Earrings – Lovisa

Top – H&M

Trousers – Primark

Shoes – Topshop

Bag – Michael Kors

White Jeans: Styled 4 Ways

White jeans are a wardrobe essential for summer, what better way to transition your denim from spring to summer? White denim can be a bit trickier to style than blue denim, it’s not quite the same as being able to throw on an oversized t-shirt with your old mid-blue boyfriend jeans and having it look perfectly put together. Certain colours can look harsh against white denim, and other pieces can look tacky if styled the wrong way (no neon pink heels please!). I’ve put together 4 different outfits to show the versatility that white denim jeans can offer, even simple skinny ones like my off-white Topshop Leigh jeans that I got a few years ago (on sale!) and have worn over and over again every summer since.

1. Casual/edgy



T-shirt – H&M

Bag – Zara

Jeans – Topshop

Shoes – Topshop

This is a great example of how you can incorporate white denim into a casual outfit, and still make it look really cool. How perfect is the Zara bag? I got it for £12.99 in the sale, it’s so beautiful, and has changeable straps!

2. Vintage


Headband – River Island

Dress (worn as shirt) – vintage

Jeans – Topshop

Heels – Marks & Spencer

I love pretending I’m from the 60’s. It’s a hobby of mine. This vintage dress looks so adorable as a shirt tucked into jeans, Twiggy vibes anyone? The heels are also probably my most favourite pair in my collection, they’re surprisingly easy to mix with other patterns and can make any outfit look so stylish.

3. Going out out



Top – Boohoo

Bag – Zara

Jeans – Topshop

Shoes – Topshop

Wearing all white is a perfect look for going out in summer, the bag adds just the right amount of colour, and along with the silver shoes, allows for just the right amount of break in the white. These shoes are great as they add height but aren’t too hard to walk in!

4. All pastel, all day



Top – Primark

Jeans – Topshop

Shoes – Topshop

All pastel outfits are basically what I live for. I love the shoes, another Topshop sale bargain! I tied a knot in the t-shirt to crop it as it was just a little bit too long, I’ve been loving doing this with all of my tops lately, it just adds a little extra oomph.

3 Outfit Ideas: Girls Weekend

Is anyone else craving a holiday? I know I am, seeing everyone’s holiday pictures all over Instagram and Snapchat is making me green with envy lately, especially as I’ve already had my holiday this year so am not booked to be going abroad anytime soon (sad face). Due to this I’ve been filling my 4 month long summer break with ‘mini breaks’ to get away from work every now and then, and having been on two out of four or five of these ‘mini breaks’ now, I’m starting to get a little bit better at packing for them. I’d tell you the key is to keep it simple, but I simply can’t preach a rule that I can’t stick to myself. So, instead, I’ve put together some of my favourite outfits for a mini break or more specifically a girls weekend, so whether you’re off for a few days in Barcelona (as the entirety of my Instagram feed seems to be at the moment), or a spa break in Bath, hopefully you’ll find something to give you a bit of inspiration.

Option #1:

  1. 20067531_1550097975057444_72689014_n

Top – Accessorize

Skirt – New look

Earrings – Claires

Shoes – Topshop

I love this outfit for exploring a city, the skirt is a pleated midi meaning that you won’t get too sweaty! The top is so pretty with it, very lightweight, and you don’t have to wear a bra with it which is always a bonus. I thought that the earrings were really cute to add an extra ounce of boho to the look, I got them for Coachella in April but never ended up wearing them, I’m determined to make them work for something though! The shoes are definitely for style over sustenance, as they’re a pain to walk around in all day, so I can’t say I would 100% recommend them for a day of walking, but they are very pretty to look at, aren’t they?


Top – Topshop

Choker – Re:So Southampton

Shorts – Missguided

Sandals – Primark

This outfit would actually be really cute for a festival, come to think about it I’m pretty sure I wore this exact top and shorts combo to Sziget Festival last year… Anyway, I’m loving yellow this summer and this top is really cute with a little pair of shorts, especially if you’re going to be in hot weather! This is also a really comfortable outfit for walking around in all day, I’ve found that flip flop sandals like these Primark ones actually make for the best kind of walking shoes on holiday because you know they’re not going to give you blisters. This would also look really good with white jeans rather than shorts if you’re going to somewhere not so hot.


Top – Primark

Skirt – Hollister

Hat – Urban Outfitters

Shoes – Primark

I’ve just realised how country western this looks, it wasn’t intentional I promise. But why should that be a bad thing? These Primark boots with cut outs in the back kind of make everything look a bit country western, and to be honest, it’s not something I’ve been hating all that much. I don’t think suede skirts are particularly the ‘trendy’ thing to wear anymore (why do I sound like a mum), but I decided to include this one anyway because I think it’s so cute, and with the off the shoulder top it’s a really nice summer outfit.

Hope you enjoyed and hopefully got a little bit of inspiration! I might *fingers crossed* be off to Prague very soon so look forward to some outfit/travel posts from there!





5 Wardrobe Essentials For This Summer

Summer has arrived in the UK! We’re all so thrilled about it, and with all this shiny new weather is a whole new world of shiny new trends for the new season, so if you’re feeling a tad lost about what to wear, I thought I’d put together 5 wardrobe essentials to get you through the summer. If you buy nothing else for your new season wardrobe, let it be these 5 things!

1. An outspoken floppy hat


Next £20


Dorothy Perkins £12.00

Screen Shot 2017-06-26 at 16.47.36

Asos £12.50

I’ve been umming and ahhing about whether or not to get one of these, I definitely know I want one because duhhh imagine the cute Instagram pictures you could get, but my issue is that I’ve already had my holiday this year, so I don’t really think I’ll have enough opportunity to wear it. Nevertheless, I really love the one from Next that I’ve included above, and have a feeling it could be sneaking into my shopping cart this payday..

2. Soft coloured blazers


Oasis £65.00


River Island £60.00


Zara £59.99

Soft coloured blazers are such a pretty finish for summer outfits, just pop a delicate cami underneath, and wear with jeans, or my personal favourite, matching coloured cullotte trousers! I’ve just picked up the one featured above from Oasis and it’s so pretty with all of my outfits! Let me know in the comments if you’d like a post on the different ways I style my blazer.

3. Metallic shorts

Screen Shot 2017-06-26 at 17.16.00.png

Boohoo £15.00


Pretty Little Thing £12.00


Missguided £30.00

H&M £12.99

I’m aware that those last ones aren’t really metallic but they’ve been on my to buy list for the longest time now! They’re so cute! Anyway, I ordered the silver Boohoo ones about a month ago and I’m thinking of wearing them to V Fest. I think they’re perfect for a festival because you can make them really casual with a plain black t shirt or a band tee, which is good for British festivals because people aren’t as extra with their outfits here so you don’t really want to go all out, but you still want to have a subtle coolness to your look.

4. Fun embroidered heels

 Screen Shot 2017-06-26 at 17.29.10

Monsoon £59.00


Marks & Spencer £35.00


Topshop £56.00

Again, I’m cheating a little bit with the last ones, embellished rather than embroidered, but I thought I’d include them anyway because I think they’re a great alternative if the embroidered look isn’t for you. These shoes are a great way to make your look more summery for a night out or even just a garden party or barbeque. They’re so gorgeous, how could you possible resist?

5. Slogan tees


Miss Selfridge £18.00


H&M £8.99

Screen Shot 2017-06-26 at 17.51.32

New Look £9.99

Slogan tees never go out of style, probably because they’re such versatile pieces, you can dress them up or down. Personally I love tees like these to pair with more dressy items to make them more casual for everyday wear, for example layering a t-shirt under a culotte jumpsuit.





Resort & Cruise 2018 – The Best of the Best

Being a summer baby, I can easily say it’s one of my favourite seasons, travelling, being lazy, wearing summer clothes, and the arrival of the new resort collections! I’ve been really impressed by the 2018 resort collections so far, and thought I’d share some of my favourites for a quick little weekend post.

1. Versace

Versace Resort 2018Versace Resort 2018Versace Resort 2018

Inspired by different parts of Los Angeles, it really doesn’t surprise me that this is one of the collections that really caught my eye this season. I love the Beverly Hills style glamour of the patterned dress and jacket, it seems so coordinated even with the use of differentiating patterns, while the studded leather two piece really captures a more edgy downtown sort of vibe.

2. Fendi



I’m not usually the biggest fan of what Fendi put out but I adore everything about this collection, the candy colouring, the down-the-rabbit-hole style dream world imagery, everything. Perhaps most noteable is the fur coat, emblazoned with pearls and a Fendi logo, did someone say cult buy?

3. Marchesa


Never one to disappoint, this season Marchesa offered some truly eye-catching, detailed and, above all else, beautiful pieces. With different coloured sheer fabrics used in most of the gowns, the collection displays bold, but pretty, colour along with delicate, but statement making, finishes – feathers, tulle, embroidering, a velvet belt perhaps.. Perfect for your next summer wedding.

4. Chanel


I couldn’t not talk about Chanel. I couldn’t. If you’ve ever wondered what Ancient Greek couture might’ve looked like, Chanel have kindly answered that for us this season with models strutting down the runway next to ruins, dressed in classic Chanel tweed and skirt suits paired with knee high gladiator sandals.

5. Christopher Kane


I’m a huuuge fan of this collection. I sort of lost faith in Christopher Kane around the time the whole Crocs phenomenon came about, but he’s surely regained my trust with this collection. Inspired by Scotland, this collection reminds me a little of the British holiday, when your mum and dad would drag you down to somewhere in the countryside for the week, not that I would’ve been dressed this fashionably of course.

What has been your favourite resort collection this year? Leave me a comment down below!




My Trip To Paris: What I Wore & More


Yes! I went to Paris! That’s another tick off the bucket list, 2017 seems to have had a lot of those so far, and we’re still only 6 months in! I was lucky enough to go on a whirlwind trip to Paris with two of my dearest uni pals (shoutout to Ellie and Emily) for the weekend. We travelled with Coach Innovations, I would highly recommend them to anyone who’s looking for a cheap getaway and doesn’t mind a bit of coach travel. We spent our first day in my favourite place, Disneyland, and went on to Paris the next morning. It. Was. Everything.

DAY ONE: Disneyland




Dress – Zara

Bag – Primark

Shoes – Primark

After a night spent travelling on the ferry and trying to cram in as much sleep as we could, we arrived in the Disneyland car park early Saturday morning ready for a day of magic! After freshening up, we headed into the Disney Village for some breakfast (Starbucks, of course) and for a look around the World of Disney shop. I already had my beloved sequin Minnie ears from my last trip to Disneyland Paris luckily, but Ellie had yet to purchase some with it being her first trip to Disney! After that it was straight to Hollywood Studios to start our day off, where we went on the studio tours but unfortunately didn’t get to go on the Tower of Terror 😦 ( does this give me an excuse to go back?).

The weather was amazing in Paris all weekend, and standing in all those queues gave us a really great opportunity to work on our tans. A trip to The Haunted Mansion of course was required, along with It’s A Small World, I don’t know why two of my most favourite rides are so contrasting in mood, but there you go.

I was planning on wearing a Disney pinafore from Lazy Oaf that I borrowed from a friend, but in the end I decided on my Zara dress instead. It gives a very unsubtle nod to one of my biggest style icons, Minnie Mouse, with it’s polka dots and the bow detail on the back is so cute. It was so nice for a day of walking around in the sun as it’s so light and airy, plus, you don’t have to wear a bra – winning. The shoes are also a recent purchase from Primark that I’m loving. I’m not usually a fan of trainers or slip ons, they’re just not really my style, but these ones are so pretty! The flower detailing is so pretty and reminds me of Marc Jacobs, but they only cost me £8 or so. Perfect for walking around in all weekend.


19441353_1405844912827636_632748634_nProcessed with VSCO with c1 preset

Jumper – Disney

Shorts – Missguided

Bag – Primark

Trainers – Puma

After going back to our hotel for a bit of a sit down and some food, we were back in the park and ready to see some fireworks. And they definitely did not disappoint. At all. Everytime I go to Disney I forget just how amazing the firework and projection show is. If you think I’m exaggerating, you probably haven’t experienced it.

DAY 2: Paris Sightseeing and River Cruise


Hat – Forever 21

T-shirt – H&M

Shorts – TU @Sainsbury’s

Bag – Primark

Shoes – Primark

Breakfast buffets are one of my favourite things in the world, so I was very very happy to start the day off on Sunday with an amazing continental breakfast at our hotel. After that we were back on the coach for an exciting day of sightseeing. Driving through Paris only made me want to explore the city more! The streets are so beautiful and romantic, filled with art and lots of inspiration. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much time for exploring, so I’m desperate to take a short break there myself and wander around on my own agenda (hit me up if interested pls). We drove past the Louvre and more on the way to our first destination, the Eiffel Tower. I can’t tell you how surreal it is to stand in front of the Eiffel Tower. Do people realise it’s brown, not black? I didn’t..

After that we enjoyed a beautiful guided boat cruise along the river. Although I really wanted to explore, it was really nice to do something where we could sit down and still see the city as the day before had been so non stop all day! Plus, the boats roof deck meant more tanning time, thumbs up from me. After our cruise we got back on the coach to begin our journey back to Calais port and our coach’s lovely hostess Margaret made me a beautiful cheese toastie (see below), I was content.



How To Travel In Style – Comfy, Chic, Or Both?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA          Processed with VSCO with x1 preset

Airport Apparel. Travelling gear. Outfit that you’ll definitely want to peel off before you’ve even flopped on the hotel bed after a 9 hour flight. Everyone has their own opinions on travel attire, some like to keep it simple, some will go full on pyjama style, and others like to go for a more dressed up approach. Personally, I fall somewhere in the middle. I definitely like to make sure I’m comfortable, but I always like to make sure I’m looking somewhat presentable, you know, just in case Brad Pitt happens to be on my flight or something. I like to base the amount of hours I’ll spend travelling on the level of ‘deranged child who probably grew up in the wild’ I’ll look, a 22 hour flight would most likely see me wearing pyjama bottoms that I brought yonks ago with a mysterious stain on the left leg and a small hole in the crotch (but they’re SUUUPER comfy right), while a 2 hour journey might call for something I feel more, well, like a human being, in.

As I’ve been informed it is now Summer (you just never know in the U.K) and everyone seems to be jetting off on their hollibobs sooner or later, I decided to put together 3 different travelling outfits, one comfy option, one stylish option, and one that it is a bit of the two. So if you’re like me and you can just never make your mind up on what you want to go for, you have 3 solid options to get you through. You’re welcome.

It should also be kept in mind that I’ve put these together regarding my own preferences, and I usually like to dress for warm weather so I’m not too hot and sweaty once I get to my destination, but any of these items can be swapped out for warmer options!

1. The Comfortable Option



Jumper – Disneyland Paris

Shorts – Missguided

Bag – Primark

Trainers – Puma

There’s nothing I love more than just chucking on an oversized jumper. I tend to wear this one as a dress (with shorts underneath) as it’s in a size XXL. For a warmer option simply add leggings – instant comfort.

2. The Chic Option


Top – H&M

Shorts – TU

Shoes – Primark

Hat – Forever 21

Bag – Primark

I love this option because it’s so simple to pair a plain white tee with comfy shorts and slip ons, but it still comes across as presentable, especially when you add the hat, which instantly adds an extra dosage of chic to any outfit! Not to mention, wearing your hat whilst traveling means you don’t have to pack it. As you can see, I wore this outfit on my recent trip to Paris (blog post on that coming very soon!) and it was the perfect thing to take me from exploring the city in the morning, to traveling back home that afternoon. If you don’t want to get chilly simply add a light cardigan, jumper, or simply switch patterned shorts for trousers.

3. The Bit of Both Option

19198488_1518750184858890_821695029_nOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Playsuit – Forever 21

Hat – Vintage shop on Melrose Avenue

Jacket – Heavenly Couture

Shoes – Primark

I realise of course that on the first look this one definitely seems more on the less comfortable side of the spectrum. But this playsuit is really comfortable for being in hot weather because of how light it is, and it’s such an easy item to just throw on with a jacket.

And if none of these appeal to you, you could just do what I did on my trip to Paris last week and rock up in your Minnie Mouse onesie…



Hope you enjoyed, stay tuned for my Paris blog post coming up in the next week!




OOTD: The Perfect Summer Jumpsuit


Jumpsuit – Heavenly Couture

Jacket – Heavenly Couture

Shoes – Primark

Observe: a totally calm, happy, care-free Phoebe wandering around the streets of Anaheim, California. SIGH. I’ve featured both this jumpsuit and jacket in posts recently, but never as a combo. As a combo, they are a complete game changer. I got both pieces from a boutique in Palm Springs called Heavenly Couture, my new favorite shop that I will probably never get to visit again *sob*. Worn together, they create an outfit that just screams 1970’s boho California vibes. I just love this jumpsuit, while I’ve wanted to buy a jumpsuit for a long time, I’ve never been able to find one that’s quite ‘me’. But this one is just that, slightly vintage, slightly amaaaazing for the bum area, and ohhh so boho. You can wear it anyway you choose, just switch up the jacket and accessories. A fringe jacket and aviators (as seen above) for instant cool, or sandals and layered jewellery for festival ready chic. Everyone NEEEDS one of these.
