TOPSHOP(PER) ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

 

And I am back in retail heaven people, AGAIN!

I have just been away on a girlie to London. Full of shopping and sitting in champagne bars sipping on my drink of the weekend, a Lychee Martini. I feel like all I speak about is clothes and drink..

Anyway, I love being in London because any outing is an excuse to dress up. Here I am in High Street Kensington ready for a day out, hitting the high street. Speaking of which, this look is almost completely TOPSHOP, still available and super affordable (links below).

I love these boots, they are last years but I feel like you can still get some really similar ones in Topshop and there are some even nicer ๐Ÿ˜. These still have some life in them so I can’t justify investing in another pair just yet..

A leather skirt and leather boots is quite a strong look so it was nice to soften it a little with this baby pink jumper, just to make it a little more feminine. Im a huge fan of keeping the legs out in winter and leather is a great way to cling on to this look, so I have a similar post coming this way very soon ๐Ÿ‘€..

P.S. Here I am with a non alcoholic drink, it does happen occasionally I promise..

Autumn ๐Ÿ


Autumn has fallen and my new leather skirt is out in full force.. 

I love this season and I love rocking a leather skirt for a night out like here or even better, with a chunky knit jumper and my new Alexander McQueen trainers ๐Ÿ˜ 

This Autumn Iโ€™m definitely investing in RED, it is major right now, colour of the season ๐Ÿ’ฏ! This skirt and a red jumper would be so gorge! 

This shirt Iโ€™m wearing is from Zara and I feel like itโ€™s so popular already so definitely get it while you can. I love itโ€™s wide collar and the long sleeves! Amazing if youโ€™re wearing it out at night, top two buttons undone with a lacy black bra underneath, youโ€™ll look so chic. 

(I have put the direct links of where you can buy the shirt and skirt ๐Ÿ˜˜)

Happy Autumn guys, my favourite holiday is coming.. Halloween ๐ŸŽƒ

London weekends away and you’ll find me at the bar in the Mandarin Oriental sipping on my new favourite cocktail, a ‘Corryvreckan’?! Not a clue, go figure, but SO delicious, I highly recommend it!

One of my favourite things to do is getting in the car, driving up the M4 to retail heaven, Oxford Street and Knightsbridge. Good food, good wine, retail therapy and a Sunday breakfast in the Ivy at Chelsea, wonderful.

Here, I just had one of my ‘Corryvreckan’s’ and was off out for some Italian food, which is my favourite. Again, this beautiful pink blouse is from Elle Belle Attire, definitely check them out if you like this top and the one previous, in my Black is everything, until you embrace colour ๐ŸŒธ post. Look at those sleeves!

You can find all my outfit details below, Happy shopping ๐Ÿ’•

Black is everything, until you embrace colour ๐ŸŒธ


BLACK, GREY AND MORE BLACK.. I was the worst culprit for hiding behind black, my wardrobe was strictly monochrome only..

Until I found a style muse (the babes you find on Insta, everyone has one) who rocked all of this colour and looked great for it! Blew my mind. So I started to dabble in the pool of colour, and now what do you know, I love colour! In fact, most of my wardrobe is bright pinks, oranges and colourful metallics.

I implore you to go out and invest in a shirt like the one I’m wearing here from the lovely Elle Belle Attire (they do some lovely pieces, well worth checking them out), it reminds me so much of Gucci, I love the neck tie that comes with it! By embracing some colour, you’ll find a new lease of style, but most importantly the monochromes can definitely stay too, note my favourite Zara trousers still piece together my outfit.

So we can keep the dark but also let in the light! Happy shopping xo

A Julia Roberts, Pretty Woman inspired polka dot moment, every girls dream ๐Ÿ–ค

I had so many compliments on this outfit! I love finding new designers and this little gem is from Bec and Co. (If you find them on Insta, youโ€™ll see Chloe Lewis wearing this two piece, I absolutely love her fashion sense, definitely worth a look to pick up a few fashion tips ๐Ÿ˜)

I was off out for some drinks on a Saturday night for a leaving party and this outfit was perfect, I love trouser suits because they’re so comfy but look so chic โ˜บ 

I’m planning on dressing this outfit down soon, I think it’ll look fab with my Valentino trainers and an oversized bag, so versatile!

‘Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel’ ๐Ÿ‘‘

The notorious Chanel inspired tweed Jacket.. A staple piece since the 1920’s, and still around today, the eternal wardrobe capsule.  

However, this one is Zara, a little bit kinder on the bank balance.. The struggle.

I don’t know about you but my worst nightmare is my battle with my wardrobe, a 100 things in front of me but furiously nothing to wear, then the temper tantrums come, life ended, can’t put a damn outfit together for the life of me. Dark times.. Never approach a woman having a fight with her wardrobe, BIG mistake.

So this is what I love about outfits like these, the jacket is your outfit! Everything else just fits around it! LBD; check, Black heels; check, Trusty handbag; check, GOOD TO GO!

P.S. Chanel had a great name, who knew?!

When life gives you lemons.. buy a tshirt with lemons on?

I loved this outfit this week, it was for a mid week dinner, because lord knows, we aren’t just allowed to enjoy ourselves on a weekend! Everyone deserves a glass of something on a Wednesday.

I love pairing a funky print tshirt with a good pair of tailored trousers, I live for this look!

The trousers in the photo literally do not owe me a penny, I have worn them so much, they’re so easy to wear and go with absolutely everything. That’s why I have them in white too..

My best advice with smart casual looks like these? Your best weapon is always accessories. Everyone has their staple pieces of jewellery to make your look come to life. And mine is my beloved Loewe necklace and a good pair of statement earrings. The ones I am wearing in the photo are newbies that I am trying out and fit in with this astronomical trend we can see coming through to our favourite shops. Moons and stars ๐ŸŒ›

The life of Me

Welcome!

So, I’ve started a blog.. Not because I want to jump on the ‘blog bandwagon’ but because I am a sort of ‘Shopaholic’.

I want this to be a space where I share my ideas and LOVE of clothes with the big wide world. Fashion is my thing, and if I can share this with people and they like what I do then I have a good thing going.

In a world of such influential social media, especially Instagram, I feel like we see so many beautiful people in their beautiful clothes and we’re all thinking, “I HAVE TO HAVE THAT OUTFIT”.. And its never tagged!

So this is what I am setting out to do, I want to carry on being the mad shopaholic that I am, but I want to share this with all you lovely people on my way. I will post about latest purchases, where I got them from to all the new latest trends coming through whether we can get them designer or even better, HIGH STREET.

So that’s me, Gabrielle and I am here to tell you all my fashion secrets, stay posted xo
