ALL WHITE

Sunglasses - New Look, Jacket - New Look, Top - Primark, Jeans - Topshop, Boots - Forever 21, Bag - Paul's Boutique

Alright, so not completely all white. A little bit of grey & black thrown in there too, along with those chunky New Look sunglasses that I've been harping on about. My ma took these pictures this weekend, just after I got back from Barcelona.. I had this vision that I was going to look like some cool, tanned European chick, but it didn't translate. Boo. I did manage to catch quite a bit of sun though while I was there, hence the white.. Definitely felt a lot more bronzed up whilst wandering round Barcelona, opposed to Sheffield. It's not that I mind being pale, I'm just a bit over it now and ready to feel a tad more summery.

I did sling on that New Look jacket as it was a little bit nippy. It's pretty old now, but I always feel it's handy to cling onto for those days when I'm venturing out of my traditional black. Plus I always feel a grey is quite nice with blonde hair?! I dunno, I love natural looking colours at the minute, but nudes don't seem to go with my blonde and so grey has become my next go-to. Talk about First World problems.

NUDE NAILS & SILVER DETAILS

Polish - Nails Inc 'Basil Street', Silver Temporary Tattoos - c/o DIY Nails

Hello claaaaw. Not really a fan of my hands.. I've discovered some people have the finger version of the thigh gap, where long slender fingers don't quite sit together like my chubby sausages. Mehhh. Not much I can do about that one, so I try lengthen them a bit with nude nails.. I'm hoping it works in a similar way to nude heels? I wanted to upload this anyway as I love those finger temporary tats! I think they're aimed at sticking on your actual nails, but I thought that might be a little bit of a stretch for my first attempt (I'm not so great with fiddly things..). Now I just need a bit of a tan to add to that festival/boho sorta viiibe. Sunshine, please join us in Sheffield.

I've just got this details post today as life has been busy. If you follow me on Instagram/Twitter you might have seen that I've been in Barcelona with Roxy for the last couple of days. I know, freaking Barcelona! It was a bit like one of those 'you mean you want me, to come to Barcelona with you guys 'cause I write/post daft things on the internet?' moments. It is crazy what blogging can lead to and even though I'm still a little small fry I really do appreciate the bits & bobs that have come my way because of it. Anyway, unrelated ramble, but I'll be popping up some pictures from my travels soon!

BEIGE & BLACK

Sunglasses - Ray Ban, Top - Topshop, Jacket - H&M, Trousers - Charity Shop, Sandals - Office, Bag - H&M

These days I don't have so many outdoors pictures up, which I do kind of miss. Over the winter I've just managed to get out of that 'braving it' notion where in previous years I would trudge out to my garden in rain, wind and snow. These snaps were taken by my ma on a little Sunday wander, but I am thinking I want to get back to sticking my tripod outside and taking a few pictures like that. Especially now everything is starting to look much less miserable out and about.

This outfit I did post a sort of snippet on Instagram - if you follow me on there it was the one where I felt a bit like Sandy from Grease, which isn't necessarily a bad thing in my opinion ha. I love my high waisted stuff and when it's combined with all black it does feel extra flattering. It wasn't warm enough to not cover up reasonably with a jacket, but I did manage to switch boots for sandals. The pair I'm wearing here are the comfiest I own, plus I get an extra bit of height. Always. Needed.

NEW IN: SUNNIES & PINK LIPS

Sunglasses - New Look, Top - Forever 21, Lips - MAC Please me

Some of you may have already seen these sungigs over on my Instagram the other day. I bought them last weekend after being on the hunt for that reflective style in a frame that actually looked okay on my face. As soon as I saw these I knew I'd be getting them.. Plus, New Look sunnies are always super cheap which is perfect when you're after that sort of 'trend focused' thing! Even though they're quite chunky, I think the pink in them keeps them quite girly. I haven't managed to find the black version online (not sure if they've sold out - worth checking in store!), but the tortoiseshell frames are still on there.. I'm definitely going to pop back to New Look and get them for my jols!

On the pink lips front I've updated my MAC lipstick collection with a fresh 'Please Me'. It's one that I've used a lot in the past (more dabbed on for an extra bit of pink), but grew a little scared of. I guess being blonde I panic a bit thinking I'll be looking like a poor man's Malibu Barbie. Lol. For the warmer months though I'm ready for something a little brighter. Aaaand it's a dream boat match with the sunglasses.

BLUE JEANS, WHITE SHIRT

T-Shirt - Primark, Jeans - c/o Miss Selfridge, Heels - c/o Dorothy Perkins, Bag - H&M

The Lana Del Rey title just had to be thrown in there. I'm all super duper simple here. Generally, that's kind of the thing I've been going for. I've grown extra scared of colour over the winter and now I mostly feel comfortable in good basics. I'm braving up to crazy summer prints, but right now I'm okay with the no fuss stuff. 

I was just off for some food here - I'd been wearing the jeans during the day but went down the fail safe 'whack some heels on & hope for the best' route.. Mostly because I was being lazy and didn't want to have to get dolled up. The jeans are the ones from Miss Selfridge that I've been wearing religiously and the tee is just a really inexpensive one from Primark. I have loads of these stocked up in my wardrobe, they always come in handy when I've no idea what to wear.
