7 Days, 7 Outfits

So I thought I’d do a week in outfits considering this week has been a busy week for me, as well as one which has been filled with 7 degrees weather, as well as 22 degrees weather, don’t ask, you’ve just got to learn to love and accept the British weather now a days.

Therefore, I thought this week would be perfect to document some diverse outfits for you. This week I have been shooting for my blog and then I ended up being employed at Topshop, so I’d say this week was an amazing and productive week for me. This week has too had a lot of change from having a new job, to continually writing new blog posts and creating new content, I feel like I’m finally getting somewhere. With working at Topshop I’m definitely upping my style game again, not that I wasn’t before but I felt as though I was definitely becoming a bit lazy with my choices, for example repeating outfits. So, this new job is amazing for my wardrobe too as I’m constantly around clothes, therefore I’m being inspired with outfit ideas all the time. As well, I am reusing items in my wardrobe which I’d either, to be honest, forgotten about or fell out of love with but I am now loving again.

Day 1- 

To kick-start the week of multiple temperatures, it was freezing in Manchester. I wanted to wear something other than flares or trousers paired with trainers for once so I opted for jeans in what feels like a century. I paired the jeans with an oversized jumper, but tucked it into my bralette to make it cropped, best trick in the game by the way, with some distressed denim. I love the contrasting colour of the light jumper here with all black and then the iconic Burberry checks.

Coat- Missguided

Jumper- Primark

Belt- Vivienne Westwood

Jeans- Topshop

Bag- Burberry

Boots- Doc Martens



Day 2- 

I know, it’s crazy to be wearing a puffer jacket one day and then the thinnest of layers the next, but welcome to global warming.

I needed to get ready quickly this day to be in town for the afternoon after a gym session in the morning, therefore I was drawn to what I know has worked in the past, basically an oversized blazer, distressed denim and docs.



Sunglasses- Gucci

Blazer- Topshop

T-shirt- Zara

Belt- Vivienne Westwood

Boots- Doc Martens

Bag- Yves Saint Laurent


Day 3-

For day three, I was just heading into town again for the day for some food and a day out with my boyfriend so opted for a cute-casual look. I absolutely love mixing a distressed and grunge look with designer pieces, for example my YSL bag or mixing these pieces with stacks of jewelry to keep it Isla.

I also, love how I’m using a Starbucks vegan latte as an accessory.

T-shirt- Vintage Harley Davidson

Shorts- River Island

Everything else- same as above.


Day 4- 

This was the day I had my interview for Topshop so I wanted to wear something that I felt represented me down to a T, but also an outfit that I felt comfortable in and I knew I’d love wearing. Again, I feel that when I’m wearing items such as Docs or distressed tees, I love to pair them with more feminine items, for example the skirt, or even by a simple adjustment of just tying my t-shirt to make it cropped. I also think a bit of skin and the colour of the skirt contrast the blocks of black so well.

T-shirt- Vintage Harley Davidson

Skirt- Topshop

Sunglasses- Primark


Day 5-

For day five, I decided to treat myself for getting the job at Topshop with some retail therapy, trust me. Can you tell this is one of my fave tees yet?

Skirt- Topshop

Sunglasses- Gucci

Trainers- Nike

Day 6-

I’m clearly obsessed with my Docs, so for this look I paired them with some cord shorts and an oversized jumper. I love messing around with proportions, as you can too see in my last outfit. I love this look as it is rather monochromatic with then the three pops of black. 

Sweatshirt- Primark

Shorts- Urban Outfitters

Bag- Zara


Day 7-

I got too excited to go out for drinks with my boyfriend in the Northern Quarter, to again celebrate my new job in the evening and forgot to get any outfit pics, so a mirror pic it is. I love how relaxed, yet chic this outfit is. I paired an oversized ‘Sass Queen’ hoodie with a shirt dress and again my Docs.

Hoodie- Sass Queen (This hoodie comes with detachable pompoms on the adjustable strings, so as you can probably imagine I’m absolutely obsessed with this brand.)

Shirt Dress- Zara


Turning 20, make it like your birthday everyday

So, it’s been over three weeks since my twentieth birthday and honestly it was one of the best birthday’s I’ve ever had. I went back home to Liverpool after being in Manchester for weeks. I had a week full of; sun, tattoos and most importantly it was filled with my amazing family and friends. I was well and truly treated and blessed with so many lovely moments and gifts over my birthday week (yes, a week it’s me, a typical Taurus I’ll drag anything on if I can). Therefore, I thought I’d share and document this truly insane and beautiful week that I had with you through some snaps I took during this week, therefore you can see; what I got up to, what I wore and what I was so lucky to receive from the people around me.

So I left glorious Manchester on a Bank Holiday weekend with my boyfriend and headed for my Dad and fiancees, which by the way was the worst idea ever, do not travel on a Bank Holiday, ever. However, the weather, on the other hand, was something I could defiantly not complain about. I arrived in Liverpool and just soaked in the sun until the following morning when I would be getting my first birthday present. The Saturday consisted of my getting my second piece of ink which I am so obsessed with. I keep getting lots of compliments on my piece, as well as everyone seeming to be asking why I got a leopard tattooed on me and the answer is because let’s be honest it is the most me tattoo to ever exist, a sassy, lil leopard with Tiffany, white diamonds on it’s neck, yes please. Honestly, I got this piece to not only remember my own cat that passed away last year, but too as a reminder of strength. By the way, I coped with extremely well as I seem to not be able to take any pain whatsoever I actually seemed to enjoy the process more this time. After I got my tattoo, we had some family time with my grandparents and had a lovely chilled evening ready for my birthday the following day.

I spent my birthday with everyone that I love and the weather was insane so it was such a lovely day. After my birthday I spent time at my Mum’s with my boyfriend catching up with high school friends, family and spending some time in Liverpool. We spent a few days in Liverpool and just spending time in my home city, basically allowing myself to spend some of my birthday dollar and eat and drink whatever I wanted.

So I’m just going to show you what I wore over the week, I did’t document all days as I seemed to be having too much fun and I honestly just wanted to switch off for a bit, but I just wanted to share what I was loving wearing in the warm weather, as well as just showing you some images that I love from my birthday week.

The image below was taken from the Saturday and our first day in Liverpool, meaning tattoo day, I just wanted something cool and comfortable so opted for an oversized t-shirt, denim, mini skirt and my go to trainers at the moment.

What I’m Wearing-

Sunglasses- Gucci

T-shirt- Vans

Denim skirt- Zara

Trainers- Nike (These trainers go so well with a statement sock, for example these really cute ones from Primark.)











The images below were from my actual birthday.

What I’m Wearing-

All the same accessories.

Dress- Urban Outfitters.



The above images (yellow skirt) show what I wore for a birthday meal the day after my birthday celebrations, the weather was still beaut so I opted for this statement skirt.

What I got for my Birthday-

I also wanted to show what I got for my Birthday to show you some pieces that I will be styling over the following months and to just share as I personally love reading and watching what people are gifted for such occasions so here we go. 



I had to purchase the ‘Her Art’ t-shirt and the zebra, faux horse hair bumbag from Zara with my birthday money as they are both great statement summer pieces. The t-shirt looks so cute with shorts, denim skirts and flared trousers.
I also received my favourite perfume which I wear daily, Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche. All the important women in my life seem to have worn this perfume too. which makes the scent extra special.


These Playboy X Missguided joggers were on my wishlist for so long and I cannot wait to rock them when I’m in the cinema (basically tomorrow for Detective Pikachu, yes please) or having down days at University, yet I still want to keep it Isla.


These chunky trainers are from Matalan and are an absolute dream for the price that they were. They are not super heavy as are most chunky trainers so they are a steal. I can’t wait to pair them with mini dresses and midi dresses for summer. IMG_0296IMG_0291













So I have literally wanted to purchase a pair of Docs for so long, but I honestly didn’t ever think that I’d get the wear out of them but I finally decided to bite the bullet and go and get a pair, but my boyfriend beat me to it and got me a pair for my birthday. I am literally obsessed with them and love pairing them with cute, feminine outfits to contrast them with more girly vibes. I’ve worn them for the last four days so I’m clearly obsessed.IMG_0293



I’m also really into astrology at the moment as I think it can really help you become a good judge of character as well as getting to know your own traits, which explains a lot about yourself once you start learning, trust me. I also got ‘An Edited Life’ by Anna Newton, I love reading books with diversity like this, contents include; fashion, organisation skills and general life advice.


Soleil Tan De Chanel- This product is amazing for bronzing after contouring your face, as well as just bronzing your complexion for no make-up days when you have fake tanned.


Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Face Primer- This product is honestly what you need in your life, it is perfect for no make-up days as it blurs and brightens your complexion, it too works amazing with make-up as a primer and to add to the glow of your make-up.

One of my main birthday gifts was my leopard tattoo, I’ve been wanting a new tattoo for a while and always had this in mind to add to my MWAH and it is really just a bit of me. Who doesn’t love a leopard in a diamond choker?






I really enjoyed writing this post to share not only my birthday gifts and recently purchased items, but too to show you what I’m loving and wearing at the moment. This post is definitely not a boast and I am so grateful for every gift I received. I just personally really enjoy reading posts like this so I hope you enjoyed too.



A Year On.

blog 12blog 8blog 7

What I’m Wearing:

Jacket- Topshop

Sunglasses- Gucci

Bags- Zara bumbag and YSL backpack

T-shirt- ‘So Young Magazine’ (Stole it from my boyfriend because oversized clothing is my thing.)

Trousers- Stella McCartney

Trainers- Nike

You know the situation we’re all guilty of, for example when we’ve finally caught up with that friend after a year of making excuses with each other about why and how we’re all too busy to meet up, yes that’s it, life does really get in the way. For some reason or another I seem to have let my passion go, maybe it was to do with the fact that I did give up and didn’t persist, or maybe I let my studies or social life get in the way, or maybe I just got lazy, got bored and gave up. After weeks and months of scrolling through Instagram in the hope that my blog was just going to magically rise up from the ashes and publish itself again, today I for some reason or another realised that if I want this as a career I need to jump back on the horse again, and this is something that I love to do so why should I just abandon it?


blog 20blog 22


I feel at this point it is so important to say that life does really get in the way and self-care and taking time out is one of the most important methods we need in life to take care of ourselves, we really do lose the sense of who we are and what we want out of life sometimes, and especially at my age. I seemed to have discovered a side of life that wasn’t just studying all day everyday and that I can indeed have a social life as well as studying and working hard. So for the last year, yes I have been working hard and studying for my second year, studying English at Manchester Metropolitan, but this year, I hate to admit it but I seem to have finally understood what life is really about and how you spend your time is crucial. Of course, I spend time studying, working out and trying to succeed in these fields of my life, however, it is so important to realise that you need to focus on the things in life that matter to you in the short term and in the long term. Over the last year I have spent time studying and doing the tedious duties in life that we have to do, however, I seemed to have chilled out significantly and I can actually say that I have had one of the best years and terms of my life, whether this be due to my friends, family or my boyfriend, I am doing the things I want to do, so yes it is down to me too, and I am having so much fun, I am really living my best life.

However, with this came the abandonment of something that I have so much passion and care for, my blog. For some reason or another I just gave up, I got tired of writing and feeling like I was getting nowhere with my passion. Yet, I seemed to have had a wake-up call, I know that I have what it takes and I want to document my fashion findings, favourite pieces or even life advice to whoever may read this. I know that this is what I want to do, and maybe I am posting this piece to remind myself of why I am doing this, but I know that this is what I want to do and I want to be honest and say why I stopped writing, but I am coming back even stronger and with even more content this time. As I always say fashion really is my heart, it is my biggest love and fashion is always there to make my day and life that little bit better.

So with all of this realisation, I’m finally back doing what I really love again. A lot has changed in the year that I’ve stopped blogging, the new chop being a part of this, but my obsession with everything fashion related has only grown stronger. Fashion is a major part of my life and everyone who comes into my life seems to be aware of that from the onset, maybe that’s part to do with my materialistic star sign, of maybe it’s really down to how fashion makes me feel. Let’s be honest it is clear that I’ve changed dramatically as a person, but especially I have changed my style dramatically, as I seemed to have always done overtime. However, I do know what my style is now, I have grown significantly as an individual over the last year, yet I have too become a lot more comfortable in my own skin and body, this is clearly reflected in my confidence and style as I really do know what I like and what I dislike nowadays.


What I’m Wearing:

Sunglasses- Gucci

Jacket- Topshop

Top- Primark

Jeans- Levis

Bumbag- Zara

Trainers- Topshop













As I have stated, my personal style has altered dramatically since last year, I’m really trying find clothes that are more minimalistic in order to pair perfectly with statement pieces, also pieces that are comfy af with having to go to uni for only a few hours I want to look and feel put together, but still feel the comfort of my duvet. (This is why joggers with a blazer is such a vibe for any non-student wondering.) For example, the statement bumbag and chunky trainers go perfectly with some vintage ‘Levis’, a printed crop and a statement leather Western-style jacket. Similarly, the key pieces that seem to compliment the style that I keep consuming at the moment are; flared trousers, like the ‘Stella McCartney’ ones in the above images, chunky trainers (trainers in any kind), vests or cropped t-shirts, over-sized hoodies and an excessive amount of jewelry (Dua lipa is that you?). These items all seem to be my go to basics at the moment.
