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'.

Back to Basics

Cardigan - H&M / Scarf - Asos Marketplace / Top - New look / Necklace - Forever 21 / Boots - New Look

Girls share, it's a widely known fact. We share anything and everything, even when the gross-o-meter is way into the red ... don't pretend you've never borrowed someone's hairbrush or mascara. Hell, I've even borrowed a no VPL thong before, because that dress was anything but forgiving. 

Clothes are probably the most commonly shared thing, and why not? I don't think I'm alone in never being completely satisfied with my wardrobe. Even after exhausting that 25% discount code on Asos, 2 days later I'm left with that hungry feeling in my stomach, and it isn't for food. 

Sometimes though, it's pure envy. After all, those boots make her legs look so long, it must do the same to mine (even though said girl is 5"8, and I'm 6 inches smaller, in which every one of those deductible inches is taken from my legs) 

And sometimes it's just that none of my scarf's go with that cardigan, and at 15 degrees, I really do need a scarf... 

So here I am, guilty as charged, in a scarf that may look like mine, but was in fact purchased by my friend and housemate. She stores it in her room. She uses that delicious smelling washing powder on it that my clothes envy whenever the two of us come into contact. And she has the power to claim it back whenever she feels like it. But today, it was mine, and so I made the most out of it (see photos for proof).
