White Out

Hello everyone!

How's your week going? Now if you are England living you will be having the best time EVER with this, say what, 30 degree heat! What even is that?? As I type this out now I can literally see the fog rolling past my window through the rain...

So I thought I would blog to make myself feel better. Remember the blogger I mentioned in my last post well this is the inspiration I took from her. Girlinmeanswear is honestly so talented, I want her entire wardrobe. Now these photos were taken when I was still down in London, I think it was on my last full day and it was the perfect weather for it. Sorry if you see any pictures being photobombed by a chubby ginger cat, Oscar just loves a good pose. He's got the face for it. 

I have always loved shirts and see them as being a wardrobe staple for everyone, you don't even want to know how much I own, which is surprising as an iron isn't even in my world. So when I found out that there was a new way to wear your shirt I jumped at it. Not going to lie it is a little strange having only the top 3 buttons done up. Luckily I was wearing high waisted shorts or a LOT of flesh would be out. I hope I did it justice as other girls seem to look amazing that style it. 

I love wearing boy style clothing as it is so wearable and ridiculously comfy, as much as I love a skirt sometimes you just want to be freeeeeeeee. When combined with white which is lovelaaaay in summer I really think you can't get it overly wrong. I am still searching for the perfect white shirt dress so if you see one let me know please, I've been searching for weeks! I have no life. 

Blazer: Mango £35.99
Shirt: River Island £19.99
Skort: Missguided £22
Clutch: Karen Millen £40
Sunglasses: Ray Bans £165
Shoes: Topshop £18

Quick mention, how amazing are these shades!!? Not going to lie...they aren't mine. I kinda stole them off a friend as they are the best. Even if they do make me look a bit Miami Vice. 

Also want to point out ma new clutch which was so kindly given to me after I finished my placement, its just so gorgeous and I feel very lucky! Ah! I am working so much lately and loving it but I will try and get more photos up for you soon. I really want sunny ones but at the moment they may have to be foggy and rainy sorry! SOS. 

Okies guys see you soon!

A Midi Move In

Hello everyone!

How are you guys? So since I last wrote to you all a few things have changed, sadly I am no longer a good old Londoner but have returned to the beautiful homeland of Aberdream. By returned I mean forced and Aberdream I mean Aberdoom. However the plus side is that I have now got a new part time job this time not in retail, how those discounts will be missed, but in cosmetics so hopefully photos from now on might look slightly better as I will finally know what I am doing with ma face.

So now I am working around 4 days a week it means I have more free time to fill up this blog with lovely posts for you guys yay. I have also got some new looks I would like to try out so look out for that! Right so this post was taken around a week back when I was trailing around west London and happened across my now favorite secret little park. Its seriously beautiful especially when the sun is out and the scenery is just gorgeous basically begging for some ootd photos. 

I am still absoultely in love with the summer midi length I think it is so flattering for every shape and for every style. You can grunge it up, make it boho or go really girlie. The look I've tried for here is pretty girlie but I try and add a harder edge to it with a boho leather fringe jacket and some cat eye sunglasses. Is anyone else's sunglasses collection getting out of control? I swear I buy a new pair every time I go out....

Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters £16
Top (playsuit): H&M £19.99
Skirt: Primark £10
Shoes: New Look £19.99
Jacket: River Island £55

Whats ultra bad about this is actually the 'top' with this outfit is a playsuit which I really like but I feel its more abroad appropriate or a really hot day appropriate as it is short and I mean short. Believe me I know all about short. So moving on to these shoesies, how cuuuuuuuuuuute! I have been looking for a day time heel for ages that I knew would go with everything and boom, there these bad boys were. Literally the perfect height and are super comfortable to walk in. 

I also wanted to give a quick mention to see if anyone follows girlinmeanswear? She is ahmazzzzzzzing so if you don't you definitely should be. My next post is inspired by her as I loved it so much.

Hope you like the look guys, see you soon!

Festival Inspiration

Hello everyone!

Sorry again for almost a whole months absence but right now I am in the beautiful city of London. My future play town. I have literally just finished a fashion PR internship down here so blogging has been slightly halted. Boo. However I have been taking outfit snaps here and there when there has been a good back ground much to my photographers dismay. My bad. But if you want to see them now you can always head over to Instagram which is chloejade_28 if you waaaanna. 

The weather down here has been absolutely stunning and its almost been like a little summer holiday, great for weekends, not so much during the week when you are heading to an office. It was so sunny yesterday it justified a water fight I felt more like a kid than usual. With all this fine weather it geniunely has made me regret not buying into the whole festival phase that summer is ALLLLL about I really regret not going to one. Next year is a must. So I decided to do a festival inspired OOTD instead, less muddy!

As you can see this Van Helsing hat is still a firm favourite and is perfect if the weather takes a funny turn and decides to have a little shower! I really love the boho vibe that the festival season brings out it makes everyones style that little bit more effortless and relaxed which I enjoy. I am obsessed with florals so anything from ditzy to big and clashing I am all over. But I always feel a bit too girly if I wear flowers only so with this I have tried to give it more of a gyspy vibe and chuck on a easy paisley kimono and a lace underskirt to give it a romantic yet lived in feel. 

Hat: Boohoo £12
Kimono: Primark £8
Slip dress: Red Herring £32
Lace dress (worn underneath): Miss Selfridge £45
Sandals: Primark £6
Necklace: Topshop £13
Belt: Primark £5
Bag: Primark £8

This is such a comfortable outfit especially the ugly shoes however I feel these would be pretty useless in a muddy field. But if you were hungover and in need of something to throw on that wasn't a hoody then this outfit fits. 

You may have noticed I am loving Primark lately. Just can't help it. Its everyones guilty pleasure. Hope you guys all have a great week! 

See ya!

Some Co-ordination Please

Hi everyone

Hopefully you have all had an awesome weekend, remember how I was saying how amazing the weather has been. I stand corrected this week/weekend has been the worst ever non stop rain and clouds. Eurgh. Thankfully I have been babysitting a certain little puppy all weekend and as much as I love her MY GAWD is a puppy not hard work, you literally have to keep a watch 24/7.

London is only 5 more days to go yay, my plan is to take some blog photos when I am down there in between my internship so this blog keeps on going. It is also very very very hot which is precisely what I need after this wet summer. These photos were taken around a week ago when it was sunny and it was the perfect weather to sport this floral number. The first thing I noticed about this co-ord set is the colour. Not normally the first colour I would go for but it looks so goooooooooood with my skin tone and with the print itself. ALSO its from Newlook, say whaaaaat? Honestly not the first shop I go for but this season its hit the nail on the head so go check it out. 

Jacket: Urban Outfitters £80
Top: NewLook £18
Shirt: Topshop £35
Shorts: £18
Sunglasses: Primark £2
Heels: Primark £12
Clutch: Zara £19.99

Co-ords are great as they have the ease of dresses but with the comfort of wearing shorts. Win win. Sorry this post has had to be pretty quick but its father's day and the wee pup is literally nibbling at my laptop charger. BYE!

Hats Off To You

Hello everyone!

I thought for today's post I would play around with a different camera and I must admit its crazy the quality difference in the photos so I hope you like them :). 

Basically I have wanted one of these hats for as long as I can remember but I could never find one that would look okay on such a small pea head or one that wasn't too 'out there', its Aberdeen we are dealing with. This little beauty from Boohoo is so goooooooooood. Boohoo isn't normally my first choice but at the moment I was really surprised at their selection and the prices have still remained so affordable. I do get a few strange glances wearing this bad boy but I am heading down to London in around 10 days for another internship this time only for two weeks and I am crazy looking forward to it and the hats coming too! I've missed London so much. The best thing about London is that there is always something interesting going on and so much people to see and meet. 

Hat: Boohoo £12
Mac: H&M £39.99
Jacket: Primark £18
Shirt: Urban Outfitters £35
Skirt: Karen Millen £85
Necklace: Forever 21 £12.99
Clutch: Primark £8

Remember that skirt from the last post well....I found the jacket version and I just had too. I haven't braved the whole 2 piece thing yet as I 'may' look a tad bit too wall paper. But you never know. 

This jacket is my ALL TIME FAVE for the lighter months, perfect weight, length and colour. Plus it was an absolute steal from H&M. Lastly I hope you like the orange touches in this outfit as I think even if the weather isn't at its best orange is such a summery colour.

So at the moment I have just been spending way to much time at the beach and eating out...healthy eating starts tomorrow. Maybe. 

See you soon guys.

Prints, Prints and More Prints

Hello everyone!

Hope all is goooood, it certainly is over in Aberdream, finally we have struck lucky with some summer weather. Nothing insane mind, but a healthy 18 degrees is pretty fantastic for us. I am hideously envious of anyone who has this type of weather as their 'winter'. 

However because of all the nice weather my outfit planning has gone accordingly so expect neons, brights, prints and JEWELS. I am not even sorry. Yesterday was a lovely day so I only went into town for a quick look around the shops, now it was meant to be quick but it turned into 2 hours. WOW, the highstreet is so good this season I want it all, genuinely. I had to really tear myself away from some pieces. Not a good look. I am so digging co-ords at the moment and happened to treat myself to a set that I have already shot the look for so you should see it appearing on this blog soon. It was from NewLook, I know I was surprised too, I haven't found anything I have liked in NewLook this year! 

But onto this outfit of the day, basically this skirt is the skirt of my dreams, reasons for? Well the length is PERFECT for little people like myself as I have found a lot of the midi skirts right now go to my ankles....not cool. Plus the pattern and the colours go really well with my skin tone and this pattern seems to clash and go with everything that I own. Ohhh yeaaaaaaah. Lastly it was from Primark. Yes really. 

Hat: H&M £17.99
Jacket: Urban Outfitters £80
Top: Topshop £24
Skirt: Primark £18
Shoes: Zara £55
Clutch: River Island £19.99
Belt: H&M £3.99

As you may know palm prints are hitting the scene like crazy, it seems that if you aint got a holiday that's okay just adorn yourself in every kind of palm tree around. Which is fine with me. I was lusting after a couple of palm/Hawaiian print shirts but couldn't quite brave it after the lasting scarring my dad's holiday shirts have given me. Eww. But this little gem is from Topshop and I love the quality and cut of it as I feel it is really flattering on and the green and black print stops it from being overwhelming. 

The jacket is SOOOOOO AHMAZING but the fact I paid so much terrifies me so lets not talk too much on this apart from the fact that it is my second skin now. 

See you soon guys!
