Before heading to Paris I went to see Hannah, a Topshop Personal Shopper at the Oxford Street Store. I wasn’t really too sure what to expect from the experience but ended up loving it. I’ve been struggling to shop recently as I just don’t know what I want so it was great to have a little help as well as to see how Hannah styled everything. I ended up getting a few items but left with ideas as to what I want to buy the rest of the summer, it’s a free experience, with no minimum spend that I would really recommend.

I asked for a denim dress and after trying on a few I choose this one as I liked the mid-wash, the shape and length of the sleeves and I haven’t stopped wearing it. It’s a great easy to wear dress that can be teamed with almost anything, a chunky heel, a gladiator sandal (like here) or in this case my Ugg Espadrilles.

My sunglasses are also a current favourite from Quay and I’ve been loving these Ugg Espadrilles, really comfortable and I love the pattern although they do make a bit of a noise when I walk which is a little annoying when I’m somewhere very quiet.

I’ll be uploading a Topshop Haul onto my channel (subscribe here) later today and sharing more Paris outfit photos over the next few weeks.

The weather in London has been all over the place; it’s quite literally sunny one minute and rainy the next which is why I decided to make the most out of the sunshine we got over the weekend.

I went to the park and had a bit of a drive around, there are few things that make me happier than driving around, in the sunshine with some music on. For that reason I needed something comfy, that would be warm enough for evening but that still looked quite summery so I decided to take my white jeans for their first outing of the year.

These jeans are from Missguided and I love that they’re ripped on the knees, I think it makes them look super relaxed and casual. My shirt is an oldie from GAP but looking at these photos has made me really want a new one.

My shoes are new and from Ugg, I have been so impressed recently by Uggs non-boot selection and there are so many which I would love to have in my wardrobe. These Ugg Leopard Espadrilles are perfect for this time of year and I was surprised by how comfortable they were, I usually have to break shoes in but these fit like a glove and were perfect for a day filled with walking.

These D&G glasses have also barely left my face, I love them! They’re great for winter or summer sunshine as the shape and colour is so classic, I love cat eye sunglasses! I’ll do another post showing them a little closer at a later date but the inside of them is glittery, a requirement I am going to have every time I buy sunglasses from now on. These are from Sunglasses Shop who sell fairly affordable designer sunglasses if you’re looking for a summer treat.

I am also hoping to do a few more outfit posts over the next few months (possibly one a week) so do let me know if that is something you would be interested in, hopefully even a lookbook!

Although we are all excited for Christmas I know that the Boxing Day sales are already in the back of a lot of peoples mind. I personally have never gone shopping on Boxing Day but often opt for doing it all online or going the day after Boxing Day and hoping I can still get a few bargains.

1. Know what you want before hand
Take an hour or so to browse the shops online, make a list of what you want and where to get it. Remember to list different retailers as it might be on sale in one place and not the other. If it’s likely to sell out quickly it might even be worth book marking.

2. Chose if you want to do it all online or in-store
I personally prefer online as I don’t really like the crowds and early morning but it’s personal preference and they both have their perks.

3. Keep an eye out for preview sales- lots start pre boxing day
Sales seem to start earlier every year so keep an eye out Christmas Day and even Christmas Eve if you can online but otherwise they tend to start in the early hours of Boxing Day.

4. Don’t buy items that you don’t need just because they’re a good deal
This is often a hard one but if you didn’t want it when it was full price you’re unlikely to wear it just because it’s £10 cheaper.

5. Check back at the end of the sales
I love going back a week or so into the sales and getting staple items for really cheap, you do have to rummage a little as there is often just one as they’re a return from someone who over bought on the first day of sales. After a week or two sale items often get reduced even more so I go back for t-shirts and blouses which I can wear daily. I’d recommend doing this in-store and I always bag incredible bargains towards the end of the Zara sale which often become favourites.

I’ve spent the last few days lusting over homeware, winter clothes and a few bit of highend makeup. You can pretty much see my train of thought for this wishlist through my Pinterest. I’m currently working on a display of prints for above my desk and think this frame and lamp  would work beautifully. 
As for the skirt I think the colours are just simply stunning and would work all year round because of the print and length. The coat is also simply one of the most stunning coats I’ve seen in a while, simply dreamy. 
What’s on your wishlist?
