Dress: H&M Concious Collection   Flower hair band: River Island

It is spring, it is spring, IT IS SPRING!!! It is SO not like spring at the moment, hence why am still cowering in the flat to take photos, and dreaming of the day I can wear this outside, (I type as another bout of snow starts to fall!), but for time being might have to crank the heat up a bit!

This is actually from H&M's last Concious Collection and just liked the colour and the unusual detail to the back, the skirt is a nice tulip shape as well, with pockets (which is great!). There has been so much hype and coverage of the new collection, here, faced by the gorgeous Vanessa Paradis, and rightly so. The intense prints mixed some great minimal pieces work really well in their khaki green and lime green colours. My favourite pieces are the patterned trousers, here, that I would mix with a black loose top and Zara sandals, seen here, or the dress that Vanessa is wearing on the initial page on the website.

Some things...are clear

Bag: Accessorize

Sometimes things are just a lot clearer than they seem! Loved this bag when I saw it in Grazia the other week, so much that I couldn't wait till they got it in a store near me and had to order online! Am liking now that most places are delivering to near by stores for reduced delivery fee, makes it all seem bit more worth doing! 

In truth when I did get it I wish it had been a bit bigger but love the perspex outside. And gives you the option of using the inside bag to keep items out of view or can take out to have completely see through bag! Something to take to New York maybe?!!!

Shirt: Topshop   Shorts (diy cut off): New Look   Bra: H&M   Necklace: River Island   Ring: Primark

Bit delayed but took some photos this morning as the light into our bedroom is so lovely, didn't really catch it as well as I'd hope, but it was one of those times where it wakes you up naturally early and you don't actually mind!!!

Have had a relaxing day off and already started organising for New York (too soon?!). So far is only a small bags worth, thinking I'll need the space for stuff from the trip, but am thinking that it will grow very quickly! Whilst pulling bits out came across this shirt again and remembered how much I really wanted it when I saw on one of the shop assistants. Needs to be a bit warmer to wear due to its open racer back, but the feel of it is so nice. Other ones I have recently seen and liked are this sheer sleeved one, here, from Topshop. This one from Zara with different style flower detail, here, and also this really over the top oriental print one, here, from River Island.

Thinking of...where next

Jumper: River Island mens   Jacket: Primark   Trousers: H&M   Boots: H&M   Bag: H&M   Necklace: Topshop

Ok slight confession, may have stolen this look idea from one of my favourite bloggers at My sister asked me this week how I would describe my style and I had just seen this post, here, from Andy. I said to her I wasn't sure how to describe it but that look was one I thought probably optimised my sort of style visually, simple with the basics but then something with an odd twist, like these H&M boots that I got in their sale, very similar to her Zara ones. I'd seen them a few weeks ago and ummed and ahhhed about, but when they went down further got to recreate this look...quite glad did now!

Got the bf this jumper with the view to stealing it eventually and as it shows one of our favourite places but today I have booked to go with my friend to somewhere else I have been longing to go for a while...New York! I am sooooo unbelievably looking forward to it. As said before am going to do the proper tourist like things (going to have to get a cool neck strap for my camera, don't know why I don't have one!) but just so excited to have a bit of an explore and see this place. At the moment doesn't feel like we are actually going but any suggested places to see will be very welcome!

If in it twice

Jacket: Primark   Shirt: Primark   Jumper: Topshop   Trousers: H&M   Boots: Topshop   Watch: River Island   Leaf ring: Topshop

Took these the other day as I liked the double layer of the denim and the cargo jacket, then realised that it was something remarkably similar to the post previously, oh well if it works, why not?! Promise will try something different next time!

Up...the ladder

Sunglasses: H&M   Jacket: Primark   Jumper: Topshop   Trousers: H&M   Bag: H&M   Boots: Topshop   Scarf: H&M   Cross ring: Topshop   Stone ring: Primark

You know that blue jacket I mentioned in previous post, here, and the dress I put up on Facebook? Well went to pick them up today when shot quick few photos (and went to do something else seeing as they hadn't actually turned up yet, grrrr!). I do love my new Topshop boots but am still a bit unsure what to wear with them, I had visions of contrasting with pretty dresses, like this here, but needs to get a bit warmer for that! 

I had a quick google search to see how people styled the similar Balenciaga boots and like these examples, here, here and here. Least gives me a bit of a clue!!! And then when I am a bit braver to bare some legs have some ideas (that and once all the bruises from bashing into things at work have gone down!). The jumper with the laddered effect up the middle is actually a backless one, again something I will brave when a bit warmer!
