Spring 2018 – My Picks

The remainder of snow still lies on the ground and the January blues are still in full force. But what better way to get you excited for the smell of freshly cut grass, cute baby lambs, and Daffodils than hitting the high-street shops to check the Spring 2018 fashion?

It may not be time to vacuum pack those cosy knits, but Spring 2018 is just around the corner and it might be the most stylish one yet.

Say goodbye to over-done florals of Springs past, 2018 is all about stripes, bold colours, and sporty chic.

Here are some of my top High-Street Spring 2018 must have styles:

  1. TOPSHOP – Yellow Striped Long Sleeve Crew

This year’s Spring is all about bold colours with a laid-back feel. This look could be dressed down with a pair of skinny jeans. Or dress it up with an A-line denim skirt, sock boots, and a stylish beret.

It is no wonder this piece has almost sold out online at Topshop. Get yours here for only £18.

2. ASOS – Double O Waist Belt 

If you have not seen the Gucci ‘Double G’ belt plastered all over your Instagram, then you must live under a rock. Do not want to pay £270 for a belt? Neither do I. ASOS do a belt very similar, you can get the Gucci look without the insane price tag. You can get an even a cheaper ‘Double O’ belt at Primark for just £4!

Team with jeans and a T-shirt tucked in for a casual look or team with a vibrant dress for a dressier feel. Get yours for only £10 Here.

3. River Island – Black & White Polka Dot Playsuit

Spring 2018 is not just about the bolds because black and white never go out of fashion. Another pattern that has been making quite an appearance on the high street this Spring is the polka dot.

Get this in-style Playsuit here for £50

4. New Look – Red Patent Boots

I have been obsessed with red boots for a while and I am happy to see this style is going strong in the Spring.

Bold statement boots can make an outfit go from BLEH to YAY in seconds. It is time to say goodbye to the metallic boot because everyone is loving the bold boot.

Get these colourful beauties here for £29.99

5.  ASOS – Statement Double Drop Tortoiseshell Earrings 

I have been a fan of simple, dainty and understated jewelry for a long time. I have been experimenting with statement earrings as I have a lot of them in the high-street shops lately.  Big and bold earrings can really make an outfit pop, from Tortoiseshell to Tassel earrings the statement earring is in, but who knows, will it be here to stay?

Get your statement earrings here for £8

6. TOPSHOP – Tee & Cake Heart Sketch Face T-Shirt 

Remember the Gucci look-a-like ‘Merci’ T-Shirt by Topshop everyone had last Summer? This T-Shirt is this seasons new must have Instagram top by Topshop. This must have T-Shirt gives all the vibes of popular designer Commes Des Garcons with a bargain price.

Wear this with some colourful athletic style trousers or try tucked in jeans with a bold jacket as a head turner.

You can buy this must have Spring 2018 Tee here for £18


 

So, that is my Spring 2018 favourite list. Now I need to get my next student loan installment so I can get spending.

Thank you for reading and happy shopping.

Travel | Fashion | New York | What I wore

As you can see in my previous post, New York was an amazing experience. Looking back at my outfits is just making me miss New York more and more. Especially with the grim, rainy weather back in London, it was nice to finally get some summer gear on and free my legs of tights. With it officially being summer in the UK, it may be time to get the holiday clothes out on show.

So here is what I wore in NY:

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love a good pinafore/dungaree dress, so it was inevitable I was going to bring one along to NY. I love this look, it’s so easy to pull off and can easily be dressed up with a big, black hat and some nice, high, chunky-healed boots. I am a little bit in love with stripes at the minute, as it can really make a simple outfit stand out. I teamed this outfit with a red bag and red lipstick to really make the whole piece pop, and I do love a bit of red to make me stand out.

My next look was this pretty, floral dress by ASOS. I saved this dress especially for New York and it was perfect for the weather. I wore this dress to go to a Broadway show and then to a roof-top bar. The floaty sleeves, high neck and pattern clashes, really make the dress. I teamed this dress with my all-time favourite 70s style boots from Topshop (that I got my cheeky 60% staff uniform discount off). You can’t see in the photographs but they have a beautiful tortoiseshell effect on the heel, which really makes them unusual and eye-catching.

I really like this outfit, I am a massive fan of red. I was always wary of red because of being a natural ginger, but who knew, red really looks good on a ginger! At first I felt, self conscious in this dress because I never wear low neck lines. I have quite large chest that I like to keep hidden, but I plucked up the courage and bought this plunging neck-line wrap dress – and  boy I am glad I did! It was a rubbish day weather wise in New York, so I opted for tights and my all-time favourite denim jacket. I live in this jacket –  the Planet Hollywood logo on the front and back really make this jacket stand out from the others.

Both the off-the-shoulder top and ripped Lucas jeans are from Topshop. I am really loving the off the shoulder look, it’s great for showing a little bit of skin when you want to. However in my case, I got some pretty bad sun burn when wearing this top… I am also loving Topshop’s Lucas jeans – these are my second pair. They are mom/boyfriend style without being too baggy. I really recommend the black pair, I never take them off!
