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!

Leopard at night time.

So for those of  you who have me on Instagram you will see I have been a lucky enough person to be sunning myself in Cuba for the last two weeks!  Hence my poor blogging and so forth.

Kimono- Thrifted 
Top and Bag- H&M
Shorts- Miss Selfridge
Shoes- Primark  

I feel quite sad that these photos don't do my tan any justice, however I am going to blame my camera its flash and the fact I took these at half past 9 at night! I have been working so much recently I feel I never have time to grab my camera and take photos, however these lighter nights are making my excuses for poor blogging none exsistant!

I brought this Kimono from a charity shop such a long time ago, and have been in two minds! Part of me feels I look as though I'm venturing out in my dressing gown as no doubt that's what it was used for before, however I think ultimately it is too nice, and makes a plain boring black outfit exciting and different! Who wants to blend in really?! My bag was a £15 bargain from H&M and I recommend anyone go and get yourself one if there are any left as they look amazing and clean with any outfit style! 

I am going to try my absolute hardest to blog more frequently! I am very aware I sound like a broken record when I say this, but sometimes I feel I haven't got a really exciting outfit on, but then again who always dresses perfect everyday!

As always comments and blog links are much appreciated!!
