Wooly hats & the English Summer

Dress- River Island 
Shoes- New Look
Hat- Second hand

Hey Guys

Sorry for the time in between posting. I've been trying to balance a hectic work life and busy social life. All good fun though.

Absolutely love the bank holiday weekends (minus the weather). This time round I went to Notting hill carnival and danced in the streets with my friends all day and night. So much fun! 

This is just a casual summer outfit I wore a few weeks back. I love wearing hats so much I really struggle in summer to find ones that won't make me too hot. Either way with our weather beanies can be worn all year round.

I picked the dress up in the sale at River Island for £15. Really simple and can be worn with anything, plus black is my favourite colour..if you can call it that? Still not over creepers just yet. Brought some great new boot creepers last week also. You can see them here

Bring on the four day week! Hope everyone has had a fantastic long weekend.

Don't be a Richard.

Tee- Journeys
Leather Waistcoat- Harley Davidson Vintage 
Studded shorts- New Look
Shoes- Vans

Hey Guys

I wanted to post a recent purchase I made in New York from Journeys- this amazing tee. It says Don't be a Richard and I absolutely love it! It reminds me of this tee from my all time favourite brand Unif. Their tshirts are so funny and ironic and are way up there on my to buy list. 

I picked up the Harley Vintage leather jacket for only $20 in a store in the East Village and it was such a great buy. So much cheaper than any PU version you'd find on the Hight St and I know it will last ten times longer. 

The shorts I got From New Look and are a great over dye acid version of all the studded shorts out there right now. Really cheap at £22.99 as well. 

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I spent mine out in Central on Friday night then with some friends at Proud2 for the Eastern Electric after party yesterday. Today has been well spent lazing around with a Dominos pizza, nom.

You can follow me on Instagram too and see everything I get up to :]

Hope everyone has a great week

Hey Guys!

Just a quick post on these amazing creepers I brought a few days back. I previously had some gorgeous black studded ones but the sole came apart (they quite clearly weren't underground!) so I was on the search for some new ones when I stumbled across these beauties.

I brought them from New Look for £24.99 (soo cheap!). You can find them here and here

They're really comfy and go with everything, I've already worn them to death!

I also brought an amazing new necklace today that I'll post about shortly but here is the link to it, it's stunning and I can't wait to wear it!

Hope everyone is having a great week

Last night, she said.

Dress- New Look
Necklace- New Look

Hey Guys

Sorry I've been a little quiet on the blogging front this week I had an interview at work for a promotion so I've been working non stop prepping myself for it. 

Anyway, here are some photos from my last night in Greece. I'm just wearing an easy casual maxi with a statement necklace (both from New Look). I don't usually like wearing my hair up when I'm back home as I have little monkey ears but in the heat out there it was one of the best options. 

The last photo (where I resemble a real goon) is me in the t shirt I won from a entertainment competition on the last night- Super cheesy but a tonne of laughs. 

Am going to start blogging day to day outfits next week, so no more summer sun!

Lastly, how amazing was the opening ceremony for the Olympics? Danny Boyle really did us proud. Go team GB!

How was everyone's weekend?

Amazing I hope!

Hey Guys 

Happy Friday! Hope you've all had a great week?

Just some photos from the day trip I took to Marmaris in Turkey. My god. That place is H.O.Tttt. It was well into the 40's and all you wanted to do was hide in the shade with a Pina Colada

I didn't manage to get many photos of the place itself as our tour guide took us straight to a cheapo knock off bazaar where they sold an abundance of fakes. Some of the bags looked good but I'm holding out on the real thing :]

We did manage to find ourselves some authenti-ish back street shops where I managed to pick up the jewellery I've shot. All of it came to around £5 and i've worn it loads, especially those bad ass Chanel'ish earrings, hah.

The head piece I wore in the day was from River, It's a nice change from simple bands I'm used to wearing and I love the eye detail at the front.

 So they say the weather this weekend is going to resemble Summer, bring it on. It'll mean I can revisit my summer wardrobe as I've been delving into AW12 recently.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Love Rach

Dress; New Look, Chain; Limited , Sandals; New Look, Earrings;River Island

Hey Guys,

I wanted to post these photos from my fourth night in Greece mainly for the body chain I was wearing (sorry I haven't got a great close up shot of it). I love body chains but never thought I'd buy one just because I didn't know what to put it with. 
I found this one last minute in the Limited range at New Look for £15; a steal compared to those in Topshop. I was really surprised at how easy it is to wear and how it goes with pretty much anything, definitely a wise purchase.

The sheer cream shirt dress is also from New Look (Guess where I work,aha!) and has a cut out section to the back that I completely forgot to shoot.

On another note, I'm going to start adding posts on recent buys. I brought some amazing creepers yesterday that were desperately needed after my old studded ones were worn to death! I'll blog them soon along with some day to day outfits of what I wear at home in London.

Nearly half way through the week, eeep!

Hey Guys

I wanted to post a few photos from one of my day trips to Old Rhodes town in Greece. It was so beautiful! Definitely a place I'd love to go visit again some day. Inside the old walls was a maze of tiny back alley streets full with the most amazing little shops.

The town was littered with Cats and their little kittens [Crazy cat fan here.], The photo I've posted was of some that I brought some fish and milk for, I can't resist-they were too dam cute.

I love this little light weight dress I picked up from the Limited collection at New Look, the thin cotton is perfect for hot days and the cut out layered detail adds a nice twist. It can be a little see through at times so I probably should have worn a slip-whoops!

Hope everyone's week is kicking of well
