Three Ways to Style: Miss Selfridge Jeans

Today we have the jeans I bought from Miss Selfridge, which I really must admit I have been very impressed with. They fit me so well, and so far I am not having any baggy knees that can sometimes occur with stretchier denim. So here is three ways I styled the jeans, styling denim isn't hard as it's something most of us do every day, but I hope I can show you that jeans aren't necessarily just an everyday casual item. 


 Look 1: This is something I would wear out for dinner, a smasual look (smart casual). Dark denim jeans are super easy to dress up and make look chic and sophisticated, all you need is killer heels and a smart jacket! 


 Look 2: Jeans and tee - what could be more of a wardrobe staple? I gave this look a little extra something by adding statement glasses and shoes.


 Look 3: Jeans are a great base to any outfit, especially ones where you want to make another item the statement. For example, this dress is the focal point of this outfit, and jeans compliment it perfectly.

Three Ways to Style: the Topshop Jacket

Yesterday I shared with you the three items I bought from OUTFIT, and today I am going to show you how I would style each item I got: starting with the Topshop bomber jacket! 


1st look, and definitely my fave! Despite my current love for casual outfits, I always feel best in my smartest looks. This jacket keeps the look from being too workwear-ish, and generally makes things a little more interesting! 


Look 2: One of the two causal looks I pulled together with the jacket. I have been wearing it almost daily since I got it, and its been perfect for this transitional weather we are experiencing. I added it to this look to keep it weather appropriate, and to add to the sporty vibe I've got going on. 


Look 3: Sorry about the light change here, the clouds were not moving in my favour! This last look is another casual one, and a move out of the dark colours. A white shirt works with everything, and I love wearing shirts with collarless jackets.

OUTFIT


 Do you guys ever find yourself in a nothing to wear situation?? I am almost sure you will all say yes to that! One place that is sure to solve that issue is OUTFIT. The best way I can describe OUTFIT, is a department shop filled with all your favourite high street brands: Topshop, Warehouse, Miss Selfridge, Topman, Oasis... and that's just to name a few. If you're stuck on what to wear, or need an outfit for a specific event, you can rest assured that OUTFIT will have what you need. I went in last week and scored this outfit, and with each item from a different brand, I definitely made the most of what was on offer! 

Over the next three days, I am going to show you how I would style each of these items. I have created a total of nine looks, and I will be rounding it up with a video at the end. Stay tuned!

Inspiration


I haven't shared an inspiration post in quite a while, and felt it was well overdue that I did. I spend a lot of time searching other blogs, and scrolling through tumblr, meaning I am constantly coming across inspiration. It is invaluable to me as a blogger, as it allows me create new outfits with what I already own, but it also means I have a never ending wish list of things I want! 

Here are a few things inspiring me recently (from left to right) 
- picture from Elle US: I am really loving the mix of leather in this picture, and the different textures is getting me thinking of new ways I would love to wear my leather items this winter. That statement backpack is available via Madpax, which you can buy here
- picture from tumblr: I think the CĂ©line box bag will forever be on my wish list!! It is just the perfect bag, apart from the price tag, which is a tad ridiculous! 
- picture from TheyAllHateUs: Those denim shorts are my idea of denim cut offs!! I love the length, and the all grey looks so good too! 
- picture from Harper and Harley: Sara Donaldson never stops inspiring me, one of my favourite blogs for hair, make up and styling inspiration. 
- picture from Karla's Closet: the definition of effortless cool!
- picture from TheyAllHateUs: Loving this simple look, especially the black sandals with the lighter colours. 
- picture from TheyAllHateUs: The shorts are perfect, but more than anything I am loving the knit around the waist, I am 100% going to be trying this out!

Back in Black


I have been meaning to post this outfit for a while now, but I keep having to push it back! We shot this a couple of weeks ago in Liverpool and I really love the photos. After yesterday’s stint in blue, I am back in black (and loving it of course). Sleeveless coats are perfect for this time of year, as they nod to both winter and summer. When its warm enough keep your arms bare, but as the temperature drops I will be opting for a fine knit instead. It feels as though Summer is officially over here in England, and I must admit I am very excited for the winter coats to be hitting the stores (got a wish list about the length of my arm… as always!!)
