Madam Rage Floral Playsuit Collab

Playsuit c/o Madam Rage  (Get your own)
Bag : Oxfam 
Sunglasses : Primark 
Belt : Marks and Spencer
Shoes : New Look 

So seeing as this weekend we had an hour of sunshine before the normality of British rain, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to show you guys this beautiful floral playsuit from Madam Rage.

Now I am the kind of person who is too tall for playsuits, they never seem to make them long enough for my body, and nothing is less attractive than showing off too much. I could go on but I know a lot of you out there know my pain. However, you can imagine my excitement when trying this on and actually feeling comfortable. Not only that but how amazing and bright is the pattern on this, paired with my New Look platforms and thrifted bag it makes me feel like a ball of summertime. 

I am a genuine fan of Madam rage as they have so many things to choose and the patterns and prints they use are just fabulous. I think this playsuit is around the £26.00 mark which is decent price for something of good quality and what fits perfectly. I would highly recommend checking them out. 

My shoes were a implusive buy from New Look. I always find myself religiously buying New Look shoes as they last and are so comfy, which is always a bonus when your wearing them for a long period of time. I.e a night out! 

Let me know what you think of outfit as I always love to read your comments and check out you blogs!

White Cocoon Coat...

Sunglasses : H&M ( Link Here )
Coat : Missguided (Similar Here) 
Bag : Thrifted 
Jeans : Topshop 
Shoes : Primark 

Am I the only one who feels like winter has been here forever? I mean don't get me wrong I literally love layering up my clothes and wearing over sized coats but I feel like I am beginning to run out of outfits! ( This is me saying this family members and boyfriend would say different) 

This coat I brought from Missguided when they had that crazy reduction on all their coats. I was one of the lucky ones to nab on of these as they were selling them off for £5.00 i think it was. After many 'we can not add this to your basket, attempts i finally got one! I do adore this coat and the colour, however i find my self avoiding all things colourful as I am the most clumsiest person around.

I paired this look with my handy Topshop ripped jeans and my literal 'killer' heels. Which believe it or not are the most comfiest things ever to walk in. The only down side is I am so so tower like in them when out with the other half! I have tried to find them to link however it seems they have sold out and they are none existent on Ebay. The sunnies are a H&M bargain and i will forever recommend their sunnies as they are not only cheap but they always have trendy styles.

I hope you enjoyed my Blog post this week. As always please let me know what you think. Remember i have Instagram linked at the sideso make sure you give me a follow on there too!!

Suede Dream..

Jumper - Primark 
Skirt - Missguided 
Shoes - Primark 
Coat - Thrifted 
Watch - Daniel Wellington 

So it will be no shock that we went charity shopping the other day! I happened to stumble across this amazing Italian suede jacket. I must admit on the hanger it didn't look like it would fit the bill, however when I tried it on I was smitten! It cost my a measly £8.99 which I think is a totally steal considering you would pay double on the high street. For all you new readers who may have just stumbled across my blog you may have realised I literally am the biggest sucker for a bargain.

I styled this with my Missguided leather Skirt and my high neck Primark black jumper and buckle gold shoes. I think this is a perfect look for casual drinks or a nice meal. The jacket literally goes with almost anything. As you can tell I am mega happy I found it! 

Let me know what you think of the outfit. Have you guys been thrifty over the weekend and found any goodies?

More than Basic Fur..

Coat- F&F Clothing 
Jeans - Topshop
Shoes - New Look 

So my mum went shopping to Tesco and came back with this fluffy hairy goodness for me! I have always wanted a fur coat and this one is just everything. I feel like a giant fluffy monster realised from monster inc but I like it, I adore the fact you can chuck this over the top of a not so exciting outfit and make it something people will envy! I paired this with my go to Topshop high waist jeans and a Primark basic role neck ribbed top. The shoes are another classic bargain from New Look. I without fail always seem to find some amazing shoes in New Look sale! Don't ask me how as any other place I look for shoes size 6 seems to be pretty scarce. 

It is amazing what goodies you can find in not only Tesco but other supermarkets! 

I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend are are having even more fun at work! Sorry this is such a short post this week. I also have lots of things live on sale with Ebay. Look me up claiashf

Top Knot..

Coat - Dorothy Perkins 
Jumper - Sainsburys
Jeans - Ark 
Shoes - Primark

I have been seriously debating about continuing to blog. I work a 9-5 job so I have zero chance apart from the weekend to style anything let alone photo myself in it, and in all honestly sometimes I just don't feel that blogable you know what I mean? I have just last year brought a house which is more work than we imagined so I'm no longer able to buy the latest trend pieces straight off the high street, I have swapped that for sinks tiles and paint. Which I'm Ok with as my house is the next chapter of my life and I am enjoying ever minute of it. 

I had this conversation with my boyfriend and listed all these different reasons and he reminded me that it should all be about enjoying it why stress on what everyone else wears and what other peoples blogs are like. And I know their are other bloggers out there feeling the same. And so here I am the first post of 2016. 

As you beauty's who read my blog will know I am a massive addict to charity shops, for instant this coat I picked up half way through last year and it is one of my all time favourite pieces I own. The jumper I picked up from Sainsburys in the sale and it is marvellous as it is the warmest thing. The jeans are from Ark clothing which is most defiantly one of my new favourite shops, however I feel so uncool when I go in there as the clothes are insane. 

Hope you all had a fabulous Holiday and are enjoying your weeks back at work (sigh) 

As always let me know what you think of the outfit? 

P.s hope you have all enjoyed the top Knot.

The Perfect Camel Coat...

Sunglasses : (Similar Here)
Coat : Thrifted 
Polo neck Top ; Primark 
Jeans : Topshop 
Shoes : Public Desire (Get your own here)

So I went to get my locks chopped the other day which is always a sad time when you feel those months of convincing yourself your hair has grown is pretty much cut short the moment the scissors hit the do. I need to keep in mind that cutting hair will make it grow. (At least I hope so) 

To make myself feel better I went for a rummage round the hundreds of charity shops which surround town. Now I am an official home owner I jump at the chance to find some crazy vintage tea set hidden away in the corner, however as all you regular readers of my blog will know I am a massive massive fan of thrifted clothes. I stumbled over this utter Gem hidden in with the not so fashionable old lady coats. I was slightly unsure at first but after my mum basically harassing me to buy it as it was such a bargain I caved.

It cost me £9.99 and is made of wool and cashmere... I say not more. Though the best way to style this would be the simpler the better, so I thought a basic Primark top and my ripped Topshop Jeans. I finished the look with these all time favourite Public desire shoes. I think they add some extra excitement to the outfit.  Slight shoe heaven

What do you all think? What do you think about the way I styled this thrifty coat?

That Grey Thing.

Co Ord: Missguided (Here)
Scarf and Shoes : H&M 

Short post tonight boys and girls. I brought this two piece from missguided a while ago and have always been so unsure how to style it. TBH i always seem to wear one or the other but never together. It is most defiantly one of my warmest winter wardrobe pieces for sure! 

These shoes are just amazing. I brought them like 2 years ago from H&M, I saw them on a blogger and fell in love! It took a whole lot of searching to find them as no H&M seemed to sell them! They add a bit extra to this outfit as personally I adore chunky heels with practically anything!
