Badged up for Spring & Summer – What I Wore (12th April 2015)

Doesn’t hurt to start the post with a silly picture!

I haven’t made a what I wore post for ages and I already intend to have another one up on my blog towards the end of the month. I used to love doing these posts and being able to show off my unique style. These days however I either don’t have time, or make zero effort.

I recently picked up a new jacket though from Topshop and it’s one I’ve wanted for months. So long infact I mentioned it in a wish list post last year. June to be exact. I remember eying this up in Coventry and wanting to buy it. Then stating I would pick it up when I went to Bristol. I never did mind and in December and January  it went into the sales. I went to pick it up then so many times, but I never did due to trying to save money. I do regret that, especially when I looked for it again and it was gone. I was gutted.

Only recently did I think about it again and check out eBay. I’m a huge fan of eBay and have been for a long time, something regular readers on my blog will know!

This jacket (from memory) was originally £50-£60, it went into the sale for £25-£30 and I picked this up on eBay for £25.50. I’m happy with that! Yes it was worn a few times by the original owner and it needed a wash, but that doesn’t bother me at all.

Glasses – Ernest Hemingway.

Lips – Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob.

Black t-shirt (underneath jacket) – Primark.

American flag denim shorts (underneath jacket) – Topshop.

Tights – Tesco.

Sneakers – Vans (LE Star Wars Darth Vader).

I love it and since buying it I’ve worn it constantly. I love my parka from Topshop for cold spring and autumn days, and especially for freezing cold winter. But for the warmer days in spring and autumn, and definitely hot summer days, I NEEDED a good transition jacket.

This is perfect. I’ve always loved the military style look and ten years ago I owned a jacket exactly the same as this. If it still fit me, I would wear it.

I feel so confident and great when I wear this and it’s something I’ll be excited to create more looks and posts about in the future.

I really enjoyed taking these pictures, especially some of the ones my boyfriend took closer to my face as they just look really cool. It was also cool to edit these images and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Me and my boyfriend had a lovely day out and whilst the weather wasn’t amazing, it was just great to walk around and relax. We went out for a pub lunch too and it was nice to just get out of the house and do something other than uni work!

I can’t wait for the nicer weather, I’m excited.

What did you think of my outfit? Let me know in the comments.

Until next time, take care all and see you soon.

Do I Look 60’s Enough Yet? – What I Wore (13th September 2014)

Another what I wore post, already?! Wow I’m really on the ball this month, aren’t I? I think it’s because I love September so much and with some new knit wear to try out I’m likely to want to do posts about what I’m wearing.

I love autumn and with it finally coming up next week I’m getting out my jumpers and cardigans to wrap up warm in and after buying myself two new jumpers and a cardigan a few weeks back I’m ready for autumn already!

On Saturday my boyfriend and I decided to go for an afternoon walk and so I took him to a park in Birmingham that he had never been to before, due to him being from Coventry. We had a good walk around, enjoying the nature as well as the wildlife in the area whilst we both did a spot of photography too.

It was a last-minute decision to take some pictures for a look post on my blog and whilst the pictures aren’t the best in the world, I really like them and I especially love the outfit I wore as it was comfortable, warm and perfect for a late summer walk.

Glasses – Ernest Hemingway.

Lips – Maybelline Superstay 10hr Tint Gloss in Forever Coral.

Mustard Jumper – Zara.

Tartan Skirt – Primark.

Tights – Tesco.

Chelsea Boots – Topshop.

Wow how 60’s does my outfit look eh? Mustard jumper and a blue skirt! This reminds me of the sort of outfit my Mom would have worn when she was my age.

With my autumn clothing I love big baggy jumpers you can really snuggle into, as well as ones that make you feel toasty and warm without the need of a coat! I’m obsessed with the colour mustard this year and have literally been pining after a mustard jumper. So when I went shopping with my friend Poppy a few Saturday’s ago I just KNEW I needed to buy one. We didn’t have to look far for me to find one and I spotted this gorgeous mustard jumper in Zara. I only ever look in Zara when I’m out shopping with Poppy and I don’t know why because their autumn and winter pieces are amazing! Think I will be venturing in there more this year. As well as that I picked up another mustard jumper from Forever 21, but that one is a turtle neck. I’ll be sure to wear that soon for a look post!

I love my new jumper from Zara and is already one of my favourite jumpers that I can see me wearing a lot in both autumn and winter. This would look great with a pair of skinny fit jeans, and a white or black shirt underneath with the collar peeking out of the top. This jumper makes me feel really good about myself as it isn’t too tight or too baggy and really feels good on my body whilst I wear it.

My skirt was a complete bargain from Primark! It was only £5 and is perfect for all year around, especially autumn and winter due to the blue and grey shades of tartan. I’ve worn this with all sorts of clothing and whilst I love this skirt it is on the short side, so does tend to make me paranoid… But with a good pair of tights and someone to warn me of any bum shots, it’s wearable.

As I have been so much lately, I wore my Chelsea boots with this outfit. They work with pretty much everything and are super comfortable and warm, as well as looking amazing. They really compliment this outfit which makes me happy.

I can safely say that I thoroughly enjoyed mine and my boyfriends walk around the park. We spotted some squirrels running around the leaves and having a feed in the trees, some ducks having a rest, some geese pestering us to feed them and finally a caterpillar finding an attraction to one of my boots. Clearly he/she had taste!

Either way this will be the perfect outfit for autumn and with only a week left to prep for all the gorgeous autumn days, I think I’m near enough ready!

And of course in true what I wore post spirit I always post a picture of me and my boyfriend, or at least a picture of him.

He’s so precious!

Oh and speaking of autumn, you like my new header? I love it!

So, what do you think of my look? What colours are you liking this autumn? Let me know all your answers in the comments down below!

Until next time take care all and have a good week.

Ernest Hemingway Glasses


Last week I picked up my brand new glasses and as much as I love them and was excited for them, I wasn’t exactly planning on buying any new ones this year… I do have my reasons why though!

Sadly a few weeks ago my Versace glasses broke, with the arm pathetically falling off after I attempted to put them on after a shower. I was gutted to say the least and with some superglue they were fixed… For all of a day!

Thankfully during the time my new ones were on order my Dad did what Dad’s do and fixed them for  me, but of course it wasn’t to be a permanent fix, just a meantime one to tide me over until I got my new pair.

I have to add a few pointers here about my old Versace frames…

1. They were just over a year old and for them to break that soon I was extremely pissed off. This is the second pair of Versace frames to have their arm fall off. Not pleased.

And 2. I bought these glasses just after my Gran died, so to have them break and then a week later have the wallet she bought for me stolen too sucked BIG TIME. Someone’s sending me a sign I think…

Anyway moving on…

Since having these I love them so of course I had to talk about them today.



As with most pairs of glasses (especially designer ones) they come in gorgeous cases, and whilst this isn’t the most beautiful case in the world, it is really sturdy and feels like it would actually protect my glasses… This being said I won’t be using it as due to needing to wear my glasses all the time, I don’t really need to keep them away. My bedside table looks after my glasses whilst I sleep.




These frames weren’t cheap at £99 bit they’re probably the cheapest ones I’ve bought since before I turned into a teenager. I love the tortoiseshell colouring for glasses frames, so of course I opted for that finish. They came in black, grey and even a light blue frame, as well as a club master style, which I tried on and found didn’t suit me as much as I’d have hoped.

And for all those asking, yes these are infact named after the writer, Ernest Hemingway. I didn’t think they were at first but after asking my optician, he reassured me that they are! I studied The Old Man and The Sea for my GCSE’s and I remember staying up until late at night reading his book, night after night. I don’t think I’ll ever read it again in my life. xD

Anyway… The frames are geek chic frames, my favourite and the bigger they are, the better! Geek chic frames finish off my signature look and without this style of glasses adorning my face, I don’t really look like me.


My old Versace pair are on the left, and my new Ernest Hemingway pair are on the right.

Out of the three geek chic frames I have owned over the past 3 years, these are by far my favourite (and so far the biggest too!) due to the fact they’re gorgeous, cheap and cheerful and most of all the frames come in an array of colours and styles to suit anyone! Hell I may even get the club master style frames in the future.

Now for some funny pictures of me wearing them, enjoy!




Can’t go wrong with a silly cross eye face… Please excuse the uglyness and my wonky eyebrow. 😛

Anyhoo that was my quick post about my new glasses!

I would link to where you can view and buy these frames, as well as other frames by Ernest Hemingway but I’m afraid there doesn’t seem to be many reliable websites out there. I recommend you just Google search them and see what you can find!

Until next time, take care all and I’ll see you next week!
