Colour blocked zip jumper

Its finally the weekend!! 

So today I am really excited about this post. The photos actually look half decent, I actually look half decent and the outfit looks half decent!

So you know when you just go online to see what the have to offer and you have to tell yourself you won't be purchasing any of this even though you're slowly adding more items into your basket. Well this is exactly what happened last week.

I have never really brought many things from forever 21 but I saw a instagram post wear someone was wearing a similar styled jumper and after hours (bit dramatic) of research... I couldn't find the jumper. However thanks to the internet, I was able to find a similar styled jumper but with different colours and designs!

I wasn't really sure whether I was going to like it once it arrived as like most of the time the clothes don't always look the same as they do on the website. In this instance it is safe to say that surprisingly  liked it.

It didn't look quite right on its own so I opted for a white turtle neck to wear underneath it, I was slightly concerned that the jumper might look to big on me as sometimes my normal size might not match up to another website, especially one I never really buy from. However I think it have just about pulled this look off!

I then opted for my classic leggings and £2.99 converse from select. Obviously not real ones but a bargain and great cheap alternative.

Prepare to see a few more blog posts over the next few weeks of all my Forever 21 clothes!

Mesh and Flower Prints

If I was a top this would be me. Like literally I have no words. Black. Flowers. Mesh. Say no more.


Hello everyone, hope you're all having a good day. I am clearly already struggling with my uploading schedule and I am shocked that January is nearly over. Apologies for the lack of posts and content on all my social medias, please bare with me. The days seem to be going before I have had a chance to actually do anything! 


Anyways, how cute is this mesh, flower printed top?! I am a bit of a sucker for these through tops  and I have no idea why. Although I normally wear a top underneath, which really defeats the whole 'mesh see through vibe' look I really don't care. I decided to opt for a crop vest top for this one because I finally found it and although sadly one of the adjustable straps has broke I still don't know where I would be without it. It is literally a life saver, and is perfect when styled this way.

Sadly because the crop vest tops strap situation wasn't working out  I ended up having quite a few outtake photos for this post (literally 67) and most of them sadly didn't make the cut because of it. Never the less I will be posting a few on my Instagram. And yes I was freezing my socks of taking these photos too!

I then paired it with some black, faux leather jeans, sadly I didn't get (hardly any) pictures of the jeans but don't worry I can guarantee you they will be featured in probably every single blog post from now on. Again, although you can't see the shoes, if you know me, you know I wore my white converse.
