Roses are Red.

Hat + Playsuit : Pretty Little Thing 
Bag + Duster Coat : Primark
Boots : H&M
LipStick : Rimmel Lasting Finish Kate Moss no,22

So it's getting colder and my wardrobe's getting warm it can only mean one thing CHRISTMAS! I no it's slightly early but it is hands down the best time of the year and as soon as this weekend hits I feel it appropriate to get even more excited!

This playsuit I have had for a while now and I think it is so pretty a wintery! The colours and the fact it goes amazing with black tights and my beautiful leather H&M boots makes it even more amazing! The bag I have featured in a past post but I am still in love with it and I am obsessed with clashing patterns, I add a hat to everything as you will all no, I'm not sure why I think its like a comfort thing, and I feel a bit lost when I don't have something on my head! 

As always Let me no what you think and remember I have instagram and bloglovin which are all liked at the side! So Follow Follow!

Checks and Fur

Fur + Jumper + Hat : H&M
Dungarees : Newlook
Shoes : Urban Outfitters 

So I am currently hating on winter but loving it all at the same time! The fact I work a 9-5 job means taking photos when I get home is impossible as it is always dark, however after a quick reshuffle of furniture I have took some snaps in my room so apologies that these are not the best. On the other hand it means all my winter furs and woollies have some a light.

This gilet is all I ever wear atm, it's so warm and cozy it's like another boyfriend! I paired it with my favourite New Look dungarees and my urban outfitter shoes which I got from EBay as a absolute steal! 

Hope you like the looks, sorry it's short and sweet!! Remember though I do have instagram where I post daily photos @claireash1 Give me a follow! Leave some love too as I adore finding new and exciting blogs!

Layers Layers Layers

Shoes- New Look 
Boyfriend Jeans- H&M
Cardigan- Primark 
Leather Gilet- River Island 
Top- Ebay 
Bag- Primark 

So the weather is becoming ridiculous cold already, and I might possibly be the coldest person around. However it only means i have an excuse to wear half of my wardrobe together! I brought this leather Gilet a few years ago from River Island in which is a common favourite within my winter wardrobe, purely for the fact it goes with everything! I paired it with this mega long Primark cardi, I like these kind of long short layering but I get they can be slightly Marmiteg to some people!
These New Look shoes are beautys! I have had them a while but when does leopard ever go out of season?! 
My Primark bag I like to think is a right good find! It looks like something out of Zara and costs half the price!! 

Hope you are all good and looking forward the weekend, only 4 more days to go!! Remember it would be lovely if you would all give me a cheeky follow on Instagram @claireash1 (link at side) and Twitter!

Pretty in Pink.

Coat- Matalan 
Top- Ebay
Trousers- Primark 
Boots- River Island

So I have been an awful blogger and not blogged in forever! Forgive me, my life has totally taken over and time has been so little! So while I'm half asleep writing this I'm forgetting how much I actually enjoy it! So I raise my hands and accept my bad blogging. On a slightly more exciting note you get to enjoy some more of my awkward posing! 
So this coat was a bargain find from Matalan of all places, I had been tempted when it first came in stock however stopped myself when I saw the £40 price tag. Although how overwhelming is it when you find it hidden in the sale rack!! I paired it with all plain things really as I was just going food shopping with my mum. The sheer top is a Chinese Ebay bargain and i have totally forgot how pretty it actually is! 
All in all my blogging is back with aspirations to become at least a look every other day kinda girl!

Triangles and Colours.

So I started my new job this week, which meant saying goodbye to all the lovely people I worked with at H&M!! Im now officially an office gal. 

Hat and Gilet- H&M (Simlar here and here)
Necklace- Thrifted
Top- Topshop 
Skirts- Ebay (Exact here)
Shoes- Pretty Little Thing (Exact here)

On the plus side my new job means I have loads more daylight to take my blog photos which I found a nightmare before! 

This is what I wore the local festival Strawberry fields the other week, minus the heels! I brought this top from Topshop and fell into a big colourful ball of love! I personally got it in the sale, and think it is so festival chic and ridiculously comfy! The shoes are those which the whole of the female popularity went mad for including myself! Reality your mad if you didn't! My necklace, is an all time favourite one which I brought from a charity shop for pennies, I think it's the vibrant colour which makes it an all time go to necklace.
 This gilet is from H&M and for those lusting, they had restocked a similar version before I left but they do go sooo quickly! I have a feeling ebay may sell them though, as i did see a cream version I recently wanted from there! If you can handle the long china wait then ebay is all I recommend! Paired with the statement white skort, I think the colours in the top are really enhanced!

As always I have left links for you to find these exact or similar items! Please leave feedback and follow if you like! I am a sucker for finding new amazing blogs to get some inspo from! I also have twitter and instagram all linked in the side bar, so get a following!! INSTAGRAM- CLAIREASH1

Lemon Patterns.

Top - MissGuided (Exact here!)
Necklace - New Look
Trousers - H&M
Belt - Thrifted 
Shoes - Urban Outfitters

So I have had quite a hectic week as well as working none stop in now have landed myself a new job! I have also re dip dyed my hair, which for those of you whom read my blog will no I am a serial dip dyer and can't imagine my hair without it's blonde ends. I have also been scouting a good BB or CC cream! any suggestions welcome!?

Anyway, I brought these trousers quite some time ago from H&M and by god they are massive on me! I have resorted to wearing a belt around them as they are too pretty to give away! Really I should be feeling pretty happy iv lost that much weight even if it is a near sacrifice of my trousers! I paired them up with this amazing yellow Missguided top in which I brought as a co-ord but have never worn skirt and top together?! However I adore how this look turned out and how well the colours compliment eash other. Finished with my Bargain urban outfitter shoes and New Look necklace I feel im falling into the transitional mode of summer to autumn! 

As always your comments and follows mean so much to me, and I make sure I comment and check out all your blogs!! Remember i have instagram too and also twitter in which you can get in contact with me, so don't be scared i won't bite promise!!

Leather Lippy

So I have been doing some serious thrifting and ebay shopping and consumed ridiculous amounts of amazing things! Some of which I have featured in this post for all you lucky people.

Top - Thrifted (Similar here)
Trousers - Primark (Similar here)
Shoes - Pretty Little Thing  (Exact ones)
Kimono - H&M
Necklace - Next
Ring - Ebay (Exact one here)

I brought this Kimono from the sale at work, as I had previously had my eye on it, however the  full price tag of £14.99 wasn't so appealing. However, I personally think it is a dream and that may be as im addicted to monochrome things, but lets face it how easy are they to style!! The bralet it one of my amazing charity shop finds, in which I payed a whole £2. I had been obsessing over these for a while now and was debating paying for a faux leather style one, however I was mega chuffed thrifting this beauty. 
The shoes I brought when there was a mad rush for them, and I am still in love with them! Pretty Little Thing are an amazing site to get shoes from, and the quality is amazing for the price, I would most defiantly hype these guys if you are looking for a good pair of platforms. 
My Snake ring is another of my ebay wonders!! I paid something along the lines of £1.99 for this! It is all the way from china so waiting for it to come was a tease but im so happy with it for the price I paid. 

Obviously for those of you who are continuous readers of my blog I try my utter best to link everything I wear and if I can't find the exact ones it will most likely be something similar! I also like to share unusual things i have thrifted as it can get little boring people blogging the same things.

As always your comments regarding my awful posing are very much appreciated! And I love discovering new people and their blogs! I have instagram too and I would love if you could all give me a follow @claireash1.

All I see is sunshine in the summer.

Im writing this in my back garden with a brew in hand and my feet up! How amazing is this weather we are having at the moment? I feel the constant need to embrace it fully. I also enjoy the rummaging through the summer closet and being able to finally get my pale bare legs out to the world and wear some of my favourite forgotten treasures.

Dress + Necklace - H&M
Shoes - River Island 
Bag - Asda (Similar here!)
Hand Chain - Primark (Similar here!)
Hat - Pretty Little Thing (Get your own!)

I brought this dress from work the other day and adore it! Although it is mega baggy its the coolest thing I own for these roasting summer days. I love the Boho chicness of it, and I can see myself wearing this to a festival with a beautiful Indian style headchain. I brought these shoes in River Islands last season sale and totally forgot I had them until a huge clothing sort out the other day! It's like love all over again, they are amazingly comfy and personally think they look amazing. I'v always wanted a pale green rucksac, and I found the perfect one is Asda of all places! It was mainly brought for holiday use but I think it looks amazing paired with girly dress and bare legs. 

I have festivals coming up soon which I am so excited about, so I will be posting my personal festival fashion seeing as it's one of the best times of the year no?

What do you all think? Comments and blog links are much appreciated! Remember I have Instagram too @claireash1 The link is also in my side bar so feel free to give me a follow, I post more regular fashion on there too!!

Old Thing Back

So, I have been so busy and boring all at the same time! If only there were more hours in the day. I have decided I need to save too so limits have been put in place when it comes to clothing. I have no idea why but I convince myself my wardrobe in lacking and in need of new friends to comfort it, when really its over crowded in there with way too many long lost friends. Girls you no what Im saying! 

Co Ord- H&M
Shoes- Cheap Shop Get your similar pair here!!
Sunglasses- H&M

I am not a massive fan of some Co- Ords, I feel along with the high waisted denim shorts the bad wagon has sailed. I'm not saying they are all bad I do own about 3 myself, I am going to base it down to the patterns and some prints being here there and everywhere! However, I do adore this one which I grabbed from H&M. The bottoms are actually not shorts but a skirt, and I do feel these are pushing the limits on how short I would normally wear a skirt but hey it's summer and it's allowed. My shoes are another cheap cheap find. I must seem such a stinger but who doesn't love a bargain! I got these beauties from a little shop priced at a measly £10. I have however linked some Ebay sites you could grab your own from as I think they make a statement with any outfit. 

As always please leave comments, I always love finding new blogs for inspiration I think that's the best way to add to your ow style!
