Trainers Convert

Jumper c/o Britfash, Shorts: Topshop, Shoes c/o Sportsshoes 

I used to be one of those girls who firmly believed that trainers were confined to situations which were sports-related, and outside of exercising, I would never ever be seen wearing them.  But that was partly down to my trainers, because as soon as I saw these beauties everything changed. Since receiving them, I have been wearing them a ridiculous amount because it's like walking on cushioned pillows of comfort (?? yep, just invented a really weird phrase).  Lots of people now seem to be jumping onto the trainers trend and I can see why: who doesn't like simultaneously being comfortable and stylish? 
I'm loving this black cropped jumper too, because I finally have a jumper which I can wear with all my high waisted skirts and shorts. Amazingly, I'd never owned a plain black jumper before and this situation desperately needed to be rectified given my love of black. This cropped jumper, some shorts of some variety, and these Nike trainers will probably be my go-to 'comfy but still need to look vaguely decent' outfit for days out in the summer. 
And for those of you who might be wondering whether I actually wear outfits like this to exercise in-don't worry, I don't...well 90% of the time. The other 10% is more when I'm 'exercising' ie. walking/participating in some unsporty sports activity in school. A post will be coming up soon about what I would actually wear to do sport in, amongst other health and fitness related things. It'll be quite different to my usual style of posts, but I really wanted to make a post about it-you'll see why soon! 

Also, don't forget to check out my previous post if you fancy winning a lovely white and silver Swatch watch.

Paisley OOTD: Tbdress

Dress c/o Tbdress, Shoes: Hobbs, Necklaces: Gold ones are from my mum, silver moon c/o Luna Wonder 

I've been wanting something in paisley for quite a while now, and finally my desire has been satiated as I own this lovely dress. Although I would quite like a 'proper' paisley printed item with a full out pattern. It's one of those classic summer smock dresses, which are great for feeling all airy and floaty. Just in case you're considering buying this and expecting the fabric to be cotton (like I was), the material is actually really silky. Which makes it even better for hazy summer days. 
Lately I've been drawn to moon and star jewellery, and I hardly ever take off this little moon. In fact, I am wearing this trio of gold and silver necklaces far too much. Don't listen to anyone who tells you that you can't mix metals ;)


Ps. I would absolutely love it if you would vote for me for Best Teen Style Blog in the Company Blog Awards. And if you're feeling extra supportive and generous you can tell your friends to do it too :) Lots of love to anyone who does, I really appreciate it!

Loving Youth

Two piece c/o Loving Youth, Shoes: Hobbs, Bracelets: Charity shops and white leather bracelet c/o Slinky Links

Two piece sets seem to be everywhere at the moment, but I find it pretty hard to find places that do a good range. I've been a fan of Loving Youth for a while now, as they do gorgeous two piece sets, so I was so excited when I received this set! This 'Kelly' set is just so fun and youthful-perfect for adventurous summer days. And I can promise you that wearing them feels exactly like wearing pjs. What more could you want in a summer twosie? 

I cannot rave enough about their lovely sets, so I suggest that you pop down to your nearest Topshop which stocks Loving Youth and have a good browse. You can follow them on twitter and instagram, which I would highly recommend doing; although it's probably not great for your bank balance because they always give sneak peeks of items coming soon-which you will want. 
You may have also noticed that I'm wearing the bracelet mentioned in my last post. It literally goes with everything.

White Leather Slinky Links

A pretty short and simple post today just to share a rather perfect bracelet. It's made simply of white leather discs joined by silver links, and I'm just imagining wearing it in summer with an all-white outfit and a tan. In my head I look amazing, but I'm slightly dubious as to whether that will translate into reality. 
You can pick up your very own bracelet, or a variety of other leather jewellery from Slinky Links here, and don't forget to give the Facebook page a like. 

And I'll just leave you now with another bracelet from Slinky Links which I am loving. You can't really go wrong with leather. Especially when it's black or white. 


P.s. You can use the discount code LUCIA20 to receive 20% off items from Veuxdoo. It expires at midnight on Friday 4th April so if you see something you like, grab it now. I would recommend having a good browse of their lovely jewellery.
