SPOTS & STRIPES

I didn't realise how high these heels are until I saw them in these pictures.

Blazer - Primark
Shirt - Primark
Top - Zara
Jeans - Topshop Leigh
Shoes - Topshop

Now you know why I feel as though the heels in my last post are my baby heels! I definitely feel like I'm tottering about in these bad boys! Shoes are so my thing, no matter how many pairs I have, I still want more and more. I think a shoe collection video is probably round the corner!

FLORAL BOMBER

Jacket - Primark
Top - Topshop
Jeans - Topshop Leigh
Shoes - Irregular Choice
Bag - Primark

These heels were probably one of my first ever pairs of heels and I used to think they were massive, oh how things change! These are my baby heels now! I've always adored them because of the tape measure detailing on them, they're just a bit hard to walk in because they slide off when your feet get sweaty hot, eww!
I'm on a mission at the moment trying to find new places to take my blog photos to vary up the background a bit and make it more interesting. Do you like to shoot in the same place every time or do you like to switch it up? If you do then how do you find new places with good lighting?
Hope you're having a great week!

HOLIDAY WISHLIST

holiday wishlist

Last week me and Luke booked a holiday for two weeks to Turkey, and with us jetting off in about three weeks, holiday shopping is seriously on my mind. So I have compiled a few picks of things I would absolutely love to take away with me!

1. River Island Heels - Pretty much a holiday in a shoe, I cannot get enough of this print!
2. Missguided Kimono - Kimonos are everywhere at the moment and I love this floral print one, it would be the perfect way to cover up at the pool.
3. ASOS Sunnies - Today I fell in love with a Prada pair of sunnies after going into Sunglasses Hut, but at £230 I don't think I will be affording those bad boys anytime soon. So instead I found this much more affordable pair, I love the metal detailing on them.
4. Elle Belle Attire Floral Playsuit - I have seen this brand over several instagram accounts that I follow and after having a look at their website I have fallen in love with so many things. In particular is this gorgeous playsuit, I would love to wear this on holiday.
5. ASOS Lilac Denim Shorts - I have way too many denim shorts than is probably normal for living in England and our temperamental climate but there is always room for more! I love love love these lilac ones from ASOS, they just add a little something different to the ordinary plain blue denim styles I already have.
6. River Island Hat - You always need a good hat in a hot climate, its just finding one that suits you! I really like this one with the black flower trim because its quite chic and goes with everything.
7. ASOS Leaf Print Bikini - I'm still toying with the idea of getting a swimsuit but until then I'll stick with some cute bikinis. I love the tropical print trend at the moment and this bikini suits those needs perfectly. I don't think I can do a really bright patterned tropical bikini so this one is the perfect way to do the trend for me.

I now just really want to buy all this stuff! What are you lusting after for any holidays or summer trips you're going on? I'm off to start making a list of all the holiday outfits I want to take, its never too early to start getting a list prepared!

Current Music Top 5

ipod

I really love music because of how much a single song can change your mood, there's nothing like a good old boogie in your room or while cooking in the kitchen to perk you right up. I used to include songs I was loving at the time at the end of my outfit posts but I haven't done that for a while, and after seeing Kate from gh0stparties's post about her current music top 5 it inspired me to do my own, so here it is!

1. Pentatonix - Daft Punk
Yes I know I'm very very late to the party on this one but I've just discovered it and I adore it. My favourite part is Kirstie singing Digital Love, I can't get it out of my head! If only I could sing that well! The video is also incredible, the 74 million+ views don't lie. If like me you've been living under a rock and haven't seen it then give it a watch here. Pentatonix you're my new faves.

2. Karmin - Acapella
Whilst I was at uni many late evenings were spent at my boyfriend Luke's house watching YouTube videos with his housemates. Luke and his best friend Alex always had new videos they had found and showed to the rest of us, one of the videos I was introduced to was Karmin's Look At Me Now. We all watched loads of the Karmin videos and even tried to recreate Amy's suicide roll hairstyle one night. Fast forward a couple of years and Karmin now have all their own original songs and my absolute favourite is Acapella. Its so catchy and I love the way Amy has sung it, even my mum listened to it and said 'this girl is so good, I love her'. Now there's a recommendation for ya! The videos pretty great too, so have a watch and a listen to it all here.  

3. Gavin DeGraw - Best I Ever Had
Over the past month I have been fully immersed in a One Tree Hill marathon, start to finish, I have been glued. It's one of my favourites and its a great one to rewatch from the start because there are so many episodes. If you know One Tree Hill then you will know how much Gavin DeGraw songs are featured in it. So while browsing on Spotify I had a look through the Gavin DeGraw songs and have discovered a favourite that I am pretty sure has been in the show, don't quote me on that one though. Its a great song and I love how the pace/style of it changes halfway through. If you haven't listened to much of Gavin DeGraw then give him a listen because he's really good. Other favourites are Chariot and obviously (if you watch OTH) 'I Don't Want To Be'. Watch and listen to the song here.

4. Boyce Avenue - Speed Limit
Boyce Avenue were mentioned in one of Zoella's videos and I decided to look them up on Spotify. A song that particularly took my fancy was Speed Limit. I just love the song because its an easy listen and the chorus makes me want to get up and dance. Have a listen to it here.

5. Duke Dumont - I Got You
I'm not the type of person that finds out about new bands before they get big, or listens to really underground music. I am probably what most people would call 'mainstream', chances are if its in the charts, I will like it. This is one of those songs that was on the radio all the time and crept into my brain and I loved it. Its such a mellow summery song. You've probably already heard it, but just in case you haven't, give it a listen here.


A bit of a different post from me today but I hope you like it! Let me know if there's any great songs tickling your pickle at the moment!

p.s. Bonus points if you noticed the name of the playlist on my iPod, if you haven't seen The Internship then you need to so that you understand that reference *exchange-a-gram moment!!*
