When I was younger I use to love trainers but then I grew up out of that phase and didn’t own trainers (other than a running pair) for years. I relied on my trusty Converse until I began to see people start to wear trainers with smart coats. I was in two minds about ordering these, I knew I wanted them but would I actually wear them?

I got these on the ASOS sale for about £50-60 but once I used my student discount and vouchers I paid nearly nothing and I just couldn’t resist!

 Recently I have just been struggling to wear anything else; they’re comfortable, warmer than my Converse and I can even wear them with my favourite smart coat. I am now eyeing up some more colours or even a pair of New Balance’s and wondering how I have fallen in love with trainers. Everyone seems as surprised as I am, even my little cousin asked me why I am wearing boys shoes, not because they are boy shoes but just because they are far more like boy shoes than what he is use to seeing me in.

 I do struggle a little to make them look a little smarter (don’t worry I don’t ever wear them with tracksuits and t-shirt, promise!) but I usually pair them with my favourite GAP jeans, a nice jumper (this one is from Zara) and I chose this time to wear my favourite Superdry Timothy Everest Town Coat and my trusty Zara City Bag.

 Talking of bags I am on the hunt for a new one but I just can’t find the perfect one. I hate going to look for them, instead I just always buy a bag when I find one I love but I haven’t fallen for any since the Zara City Bag and that was about a year ago!

I’ll keep you all updated on whether I end up caving and buying another pair of trainers, if I find the perfect pair I don’t think I will be able to resist!

Do you wear trainers? What do you think of wearing them with smarter coats?

Earlier this month I went to Westfield to do some sale shopping, I also popped into Primark and Superdrugs. Find out what I bought in the video below…

Shoe & Shirt- Zara
Trousers- H&M

(H&M and Zara… no surprise there!)

Queue the worst editing ever, I’m not too sure why I blended the two images together but there we go- it didn’t make the background look any better that’s for sure. This super basic outfit is my entry into the Niveasoft and Giles Deacon competition which I blogged about last week and which is open until 25th September. I must admit although basic I do love rolled up jeans, high heels and shirts although I could do with a little more tan!

If you want to enter the competition simply upload an outfit to Instagram or Twitter with the Hashtag #ootd and #Niveasoft to be in with a chance of winning a Nivea Soft pot, a designer Giles Deacon bag and a styling session with Giles Deacon!

Good luck!

Since my camera is currently getting fixed
I don’t have any of my own photos to share with you so I thought I would share
a quick summer wishlist. As you may know I am lucky enough to be going on
holiday again for the whole month of August and I am already excited but have a
long wishlist I thought I would share…
Navy is probably my favourite bag colour
other than black and brown, as I think it is still very versatile! As this one
is somewhere between a navy and a royal blue it’s perfect for both summer and
winter plus for under
£40 it’s a bit of a bargain (from Zara)!
Summer outfits to me should be simple and
beautifully accessorized with stunning bright shoes such as these orange
heels
from Missguided and chunky gold jewelry. This NewLook necklace
caught my eye as I love the green and it’s got a slightly old fashion feel
although it still remains very modern.
Primark
is now available on ASOS
and it looks like they have some good picks, this
dress caught my eye especially at just £10! (plus student discount on ASOS!)
I currently love bikinis and really can’t
wait to spend a good few days just lounging in the sun. If, like me, you have a
larger bust I think it is so important to get a good bikini bra even if you do
have to spent a little bit more. I think the sized ones always look so much
nicer than the simple triangle ones that girls with smaller chests can get away
with. I love the Figleaves
bikinis
* and they do my size! I think this
sailor bikini
is super cute and looks very flattering!
I’ve been looking for leopard
print trousers
for a while; they have to be the perfect material, cut and
pattern so that they don’t look cheap. I think these Topshop ones are would
look beautiful on holiday during both day and night with a tan and high heels!
What’s on your current summer wish list?

I’m still away in Madeira but my holiday is coming to an end and it is bitter sweet. I always get very home sick 3 days in, we actually haven’t had the greatest weather so I still don’t have a proper tan, that said I’m quite enjoy doing nothing all day.

Yesterday we headed into Funchal as it’s our last few days here to get some souvenirs, make a few Zara purchases as it’s a little cheaper here and have some lunch. Sadly I didn’t find the dress I wanted in Zara so I will have to look for it in London as it was the perfect LBD.

 As it was pretty cold, but I came unprepared with only a single pair of jeans I went for these black and white aztec shorts from Primark which I fell in love with a while ago. They’re a perfect little versatile paired with heels for a dressy look or flats and a jumper.

 My jacket and bag are simply my usual uniform; bag is from Zara and jacket is Oasis (I think). My t-shirt was cheap Zara purchase a few days back which cost me under 10 euros and although it’s nothing fancy it is still nicer than the usual white vest I wear.

 My sandals were kindly sent to me by Clarks as part of their #FreeYourFeet campaign and are the Studio Beat sandals in metallic leather. At first I thought they were a little mum-sy and they are a little but they are incredibly comfortable, versatile and perfect for pretty much any occasion. At £45 they are a little pricey (well they not super cheap at least) but the quality is great and I have a feeling they’ll last me a few summers.

What have you been wearing recently? I’ve heard the weather in London isn’t too bad!
