Just Playin'

Another bargain outfit for you all today. This gorgeous little playsuit was a tiny £9 from the Topshop sale. The photos don't really do it justice which is a shame as you can't really see the faint leopard print detailing which makes it feel more expensive and dressy. I kept this outfit quite simple by just pairing it with a pair of shoe boots that I picked up in the New Look sale last year. 

So I only have 5 days left until I go to uni and I still haven't started packing up my clothes and shoes! I literally have no idea where to start or what to take with me. I want to take it all but I just know I'm not going to have enough room so I really need to start getting organised! I'm excited about going to uni but obviously part of me is quite nervous so if any of you have any tips for me I'd love to hear them!

Until next time

Dress - H&M
Shoes - New Look
Clutch - Primark

The little black dress is a classic wardrobe staple that all women should own at least one of and H&M have got it spot on with this beauty. AND it's only £9.99!! You really can't get much better than that. 
I love how it's so simple yet the thin straps and mesh panel make it feel a bit more dressy. 
When I saw this dress on the hanger I wasn't too sure about it as it looked like a lot of fabric heavy fabric and it looked as if it would be a bit of a strange length, but I actually really like the length and fit of it. 
I decided to pair this dress with two of my £5 bargain finds. I got the heels in New Look last year and the bag was a recent find in the Primark sale. 

Until next time

P.S. Hi Ashleigh!!

The Shoe Edit

I'm backkkkkkkkk! It's been a while I know and I feel really bad for neglecting my blog lately but with everything that's been going on lately I just haven't had time!
So first things first... I got into uni!!! Wooooooooo! I start at Canterbury Christ Church University in 2 weeks time so lately I've been really busy sorting things out for that and buying everything I'm going to need. I'm really excited about going, obviously slightly nervous too, but the girls I'm in a house with all seem really lovely so I can't wait to meet them.

Anyway on to today's post. The Shoe Edit. 
As the name suggests I've been buying quite a few pairs of shoes lately. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen a recent picture of some of my shoe collection, so I thought I'd share some of my latest purchases with you. 

These gorgeous desert boots are from the Topshop sale and initially I ordered both colours to see which I preferred and I was planning on sending the other colour back. However when they arrived I couldn't decide which pair I liked the best so I kept them both. The were such bargains with both pairs coming to a total of £25 which is cheaper than it would have cost for one pair at full price. 

I have been after a pair of Converse for years now and I've just never got round to getting a pair so when I saw this pair in the Bank sale for £30 I decided now was the time. It was meant to be as they were the last pair in store and they were my size! I actually like them a lot more than I thought I would and they go with pretty much everything which makes me very happy. Also I think they are going to be useful at uni to just chuck on with jeans for a simple lazy outfit.

 Another shoe style I've been after for a while now is the deck shoe. There's just something about a deck shoe with a rolled up jean that I just love, it just looks so effortless but so good. I love the colour of these and they're ridiculously comfortable which is always a bonus!

Oh I do love a good Primark court shoe and they've really upped their game with these gorgeous snake print beauties! Although I was drawn to them on the shelf, I wasn't 100% convinced however once they were on my feet I just knew they had to be mine! They look so much more expensive than the £10 price tag and look great with anything from jeans and a white tee to a little black dress. 
I'm also equally impressed with this orange pair as well. I already have the pink pair and they're perfect for adding a pop of colour to an outfit so I thought I'd get the orange pair to mix it up a bit as we head into autumn. 

When it comes to New Look's shoe sale I tend to do pretty well in my local store. In the past I've picked up quite a few pairs of heels at £5 a pair which is such a bargain. These boots were £7 in the sale and to begin with I wasn't sure if they looked too clumpy but they actually look a lot better on. Teamed with black jeans and chunky knit I think they will be perfect for a dry autumn/winter day. 

Now I know the black pair have already been featured in previous posts but I thought I'd post about all 3 pairs together. 
I can't really put into words how much I love these Primark skater shoes and I'm already on my second pair of black ones as I wear them so much. They are the comfiest and easiest shoe to wear! They look good with most things and they're only £7 a pair, you really can't go wrong! As you can probably tell I just love them and would recommend them to everyone!  

Right well that'a enough from me for now. Have a good week and I promise to try and blog more! 
Until next time
