Spain style

Fashion, Lifestyle

Hey guys!

I apologise for being out of the blogging game for a while- I’ve been crazy busy working this summer!

I have been working in a coffee shop most days this summer, so I couldn’t wait to get away to Spain for a week. My sister, mum and I went on a trip to Murcia, Spain where my family has a villa (If you want to read about Murcia, I wrote a little about it in my previous blog ‘Spain Diaries’). I couldn’t wait to wear all my new fashion finds whilst on holiday, and whilst I shared most of my outfits on my Instagram, I thought I would share them in more detail with you guys! I hope you enjoy…

Day Outfits

ASOS white dress (Similar here). I was loving an ‘All White’ theme during my holiday and there is nothing better than a Little White Dress!

I added this gorgeous Massimo Dutti blazer (similar here) my boyfriend got me for my birthday. I love adding a pop of colour to an outfit and this red colour is so eye catching!

I carried on the all white theme with this outfit. The top and shorts are from Primark and the shirt is from ASOS.

Swimwear

It was far too hot during the day to wear much clothing so I basically lived in my bikinis. I like to keep it simple when it comes to swimwear.

Bikini top- Forever 2

River Island bikini top (Similar here)

I am loving simple black swimsuits like this ASOS one. I love how the front is scooped and the back has a T back detail. The best part about swimsuits is that you can eat as much ice cream and junk food on holiday and be able to hide that food baby!

Evening outfits

I love this off the shoulder New Look dress I got for just £4!

I got this brown skirt above and the yellow skirt below in the River Island sale. I love A-line skirts as I really think they are flattering on all body types as they pull in at the waist and just skim the hips. If there is one sale I recommend to check out this summer, its River Islands! There are so many steals on offer!

I am really loving layering chokers and longer necklaces together, especially delicate gold ones!

This Zara dress is everything! Its sparkly and bold, and definitely ideal for a night out!

 

I hope you enjoyed reading and are having a fab summer!

Lots of love,

Sky blue dreams

Fashion

Hey guys!

I am a self confessed Zara addict, and I love going into their stores and spending ages looking about at all their beautiful pieces. When I went on my holiday to Spain a few weeks ago, I couldn’t wait to get to the Zara store in Murcia’s shopping centre as its huge and has so much to offer. When I went to the store this dreamy blue leather jacket instantly caught my eye. It also comes in a gorgeous mustard yellow colour but unfortunately they didn’t have it in my size. I instantly thought the sky blue colour would go great in my spring/summer wardrobe so I just had to buy it.

I wore it out this weekend and paired it with a Topshop blue crop top (similar here) and black Topshop jeans. I wore my Geox pumps (similar here) as they are so comfy and great for a day out. I finished off the outfit with my Jaegar grey tote bag (similar here) and my new Quay Australia marble sunglasses. I am so obsessed with these sunnies! They are so cool and quirky and add some character to any outfit. I got them off ASOS as I was able to use my student discount. I couldn’t recommend Quay Australia enough- their sunglasses are amazing and come in lots of styles and colours. They are also very affordable!

That’s all for now. Have a great week!

Lots of love,

Leather details

Fashion

Hey guys!

I hope you are all having a fab weekend.

As I mentioned in my last post, I am obsessed with leather, so I recently bought a pair of leather detailed leggings that I have styled two different ways. These leggings are from ASOS and are only £18; so they are not too pricey- and remember that students get a 10% discount too! They are super comfy and can be worn dressed up or dressed down.

I firstly dressed up the leggings with a cute floral crop top from Topshop. This pattern is very spring/summer and is so pretty! I paired the outfit with some nude heels from New Look and matched them with a nude leather jacket. Leather on leather works really well, and makes for a very cool ensemble. I then finished the outfit off with my Louis Vuitton clutch bag. This bag actually came attached to my bigger Neverfull Louis Vuitton bag; which I will show you guys in a later post.

A blouse goes really well with these leggings too. This can create a much more casual look- just swap the heels for some flats, add a bigger bag and you’re ready to go!

I got this blouse from New Look and its one of my favourite new pieces! It is such a classy blouse and can be worn in so many ways. Its also really flowy and comfortable!

A couple of the items mentioned were bought a while ago so I will add some links to some lookalikes that are currently in shops!

By the way, Unidays is a website that gives you amazing discounts in places like ASOS, Topshop and New look. So my biggest tip of the week is to sign up with the link below, I promise you won’t regret it!
