60s Style

— 4 July 2015 —

NCF60sstyle-4

I’m back with another outfit of the day post, this time with a throwback to the 60s. Of course, I found this Missguided dress in a charity shop for a few pounds and knew it would be perfect for blogging. It’s now available on ebay here if you’re feeling the retro vibes for summer. I styled it with my mum’s vintage Miss Sixty jacket and some very cool monochrome, striped, square sunglasses which I bought from New Look a few weeks ago. I’m loving these glasses to edge up any plain old monochrome outfit.

Nothing else new to report this weekend, apart from that I’ve been making more and more shorts, and they feature gun metal studs and gold sequins. Check out my ebay page for more details!

High-End Fashion Wishlist

— 2 July 2015 —High-End Fashion WishlistWhenever I create a wish list post here on the blog, I more often than not end up buying one or two of the pieces on there- see Black Friday post and note the grey boots which I didn’t take off my feet for a good few months after purchasing). To try and stop that from happening this month, I’ve compiled a “high end” wish list, so that no matter how badly I want some of these pieces, I simply won’t be able to buy them! Ok, so the Kate Spade iPhone case is a little more in reach thanks to ebay, but the rest will remain firmly on the list.
I find there are certain items that I could just buy and buy- you can never have too many of some things i.e. sunglasses, sweatshirts, and most definitely shoes. At the moment, I’m loving Dolce & Gabbana heels, Calvin Klein sweatshirts, and Illesteva Leonard sunglasses. Kate Spade also have the perfect classic accessories for day-to-day looks, and I’m craving after her phone cases and this cross body bag.
If only…

The hot weather is really kicking in now in England, so it’s the perfect opportunity to show you another Boohoo sale buy. This one was more of a risky purchase, as it’s not something I would normally pick out, but I wanted to try something different. I loved the burnt orange colour, with the high neck line, and long sleeves. It’s not typically an item of clothing you would want to wear out in the blazing sun through the day, but I imagine wearing this out to an evening meal on holiday in a hot country! I simply styled it with a white watch and sandals, and silver rings from Silver By Mail to keep the colours neutral, and the focus on the playsuit. I was a little disappointed with the shape of the playsuit around the legs, and there seemed to be too much extra material. Although this might not be a piece which is comfortable for day-to-day wearing, it was a perfect piece for blogging!

In other news, thank you to all 700 of you who have ever followed, liked, and shared my blog.  It can be strange to think that there are other people like me reading what I write and looking at the outfits I put together, but I’m so glad you do!

Ribbed Skater Dress

— 27 June 2015 —

Good evening!

I’m back with a new outfit post, and this one’s a bit more summery! For once I was actually warm enough to bare my legs while shooting this, so I could show off one of my latest purchases from the Boohoo sale. I’m loving the ribbed material at the moment, and had to decide between a skater dress or a body con. I picked the good old skater dress for extra comfort, since I’m not a big dress-wearer in the first place. I teamed it with my mum’s vintage Miss Sixty denim jacket and my sturdy brogues (which I was also wearing in my “Work Wear” blog post a few days ago). Accessories for today include Firetrap sunglasses- c/o my sister- an Olivia Burton watch, and a half-topknot.

My June Playlist

— 26 June 2015 —

NCFjuneplaylist-2

 

Listening to music takes up a lot of my time day to day, but I haven’t done a Music Monday post for a while. I thought that instead I’d create monthly playlists of many different artists and songs I’m into. Today I’m bringing to you a playlist which I’ve been working on for a week or so. It’s made up of all the songs I’ve been loving throughout June- some new, some old, and some from bands I’d never even heard of until yesterday. I’ll still be adding songs to it until the end of June but for now, here’s what I’ve got…

 

Let me know if there’s anything you think I should add!

Work Wear

— 24 June 2015 —

NCFworkwear

I’ve just finished my first two days in my new job and as promised, I’m posting all about what I wore. Although I was hoping that working in retail would mean that I could wear my own clothes, maybe a stricter dress code will be helpful for those days when I look in my wardrobe and find I have nothing to wear. Primark was my first stop for basics, and I bought- amongst other things!- the shirt I’m wearing here. Plain, off-white, chiffon, and little turned up sleeves for a bit of character. For trousers, I knew that Mango would be perfect for a small frame and I got these black, slim-leg, fitted trousers to go alongside my trusty, chunky brogues which I bought off eBay last year.

For accessories, I added a bit of denim and a pop of colour with my soft leather orange bag. Of course, it was all finished off with rose gold jewellery. If you’ve been on my instagram recently, you might have seen the bracelet I found in my mum’s jewellery box which was made to go with my Marc Jacobs watch.

Leaf Print – Take 2

— 21 June 2015 —

NCFyellowleaf

Hello again! How have your weekends been? I’ve been busy making and customising more mom-jean-shorts, and they’re over on ebay here if you want to have a browse. There will be more coming very soon too, so if you’re a fan of denim, lace, and sequins then what are you waiting for? Perfect for festival season and sunny days at the beach this summer. In between customising shorts, making a June playlist on spotify (coming soon!), and watching as much tennis as possible, I’ve also been trying to blog really regularly for you. Today’s post is another take on that leaf print which has been big in the fashion world recently…

 I’m not normally one for bright, bold prints- especially not in trousers- but I’m really loving these fitted Topshop trousers and their sunny colours. About a month ago I shared my green leaf print Zara jacket with you, and promised I would be shooting these trousers the same week. I did go and do the shoot when I said I would, I just never got round to posting it for you. Here it is now!
