F&F - Spring Florals

Top and Bag - F&F / Jeans - Topshop / Shoes - New Look 

I'm constantly impressed by F&F, and I'm not afraid to admit it. Since going to their West Kensington opening event, I've kept them on my radar. Now, interning for the PR company in which F&F is a client of, I've come to realise just how many clothes I love of theirs. This floral silk top called me from across the showroom, and I couldn't resist picking it up and holding it against myself. Let's be honest, can I ever resist a new top to go with the black jean combo I've become such a fan of? It feels just as silky as it looks, and that's always such a bonus for me. I like clothes to feel as nice as they look, which makes me terrible at walking round shopping centres... I just stroke the clothes as I go (I apologise now to all the germ freaks about this). 
 I've paired it with a lime clutch to bring out some of the flowers on the top. This colour is so perfect for spring, and really brightens up the outfit. It's also a really good size for a clutch, meaning all my necessities can fit in nicely; 200 old receipts, 8 lipsticks, my reading glasses (even though no reading will occur on that day) e.t.c.
I've eyeing up a few other pieces on the F&F website at the moment, and with the prices so affordable, I don't think I can resist that 'checkout' button...


Weekend Wearing Inspiration - with George

Coat - Link / Necklace - Link / Dress - Link / Underwear - Link 

A year ago, I'd never have dreamed of looking at George at Asda, but recently names such as George and F&F are becoming increasingly popular, and it's not hard to understand why. 
 I wanted to find some weekend outfit inspiration, and so started looking through their dresses.  This crepe dress grabbed my attention immediately, I love this colour at the moment and this style is so versatile. But being blonde, I'd need something to break up all that yellow, so I thought it would look great with a white coat worn open, the two colours looking really summery! 
 Chunky necklaces are a real love of mine at the moment, and this floral one is no exception. As the shift dress is plain, this necklace would bring a lot of detail to the outfit, especially if you were going for dinner or drinks!!
 And no outfit is complete without a gorgeous underwear set. I always think underwear can give you so much confidence, even though no-one can see it. The satin fabric of this set would allow the dress to fall over it beautifully, avoiding all of the embarrassing lumps and bumps that some bras would create! 

George will definitely be a bookmark on my computer now, as it's perfect for style on a budget. 

Is anyone else loving George at the moment? What do you think of their clothes?

Caged Platform Sandals

Sandals - New Look or New Look on Asos/ Jeans - Topshop / Top - Topshop / Necklace - Miss Selfridge

I've always been a fan of gladiators - the sandals...not the Roman fighters (although I did love the film). So when a shoe comes out that combines gladiators and platforms, you can guarantee that I'm going to buy them. I love the height on these; it makes it so easy to dress them up if you're out in the evening yet still have the ability to look summery. New Look sell them in tan with a white sole, and I'm so tempted to get those too. 

I've paired the sandals with a lime quilted jumper from Topshop and a chunky necklace. This is my go-to outfit at the moment as it really does suit any occasion...and the on-off weather at the moment! 

...I ripped my jeans.

Top - Sheinside / Jeans - Miss Selfridge (old) 

Usually when I rip my jeans, it's due to chub rub (definition by Urban Dictionary: the rubbing and chaffing of chubby thighs against one another during long walks or duration of activity.) So owning a pair of jeans that I have deliberately ripped, and somewhere other than the inner thigh, is quite a nice feeling. 

I don't quite understand the people that are buying a new pair of ripped jeans when you could get a cheap pair and do it yourself. These ones had been lying around, practically unworn, for about a year so I thought I'd put them to good use. 

I don't think this is a style I'm going to be adopting daily, but it's nice on the occasional 'chill day'.
