My weekend and outfits in Paris - Day One

 I'm not sure if it's just me of if other bloggers/fashion lovers feel the same, but I love the holiday packing process!

I love laying all of my clothes out and putting looks together, this way I know I have the right accessories for each outfit, I can pick 2-3 pairs of shoes that go with everything and then be mega chuffed at how lightly I've packed because I've been so organised. 

My living room the day before Paris - oops!
Day One

For the early start and travel over to France on the Eurostar I wore a simple and comfy but also a little bit chic....I'm going to Paris after all leggings and a tank top just wouldn't do!

Top - H&M - £7.99
Trousers - H&M - £14.99
Scarf - RiverIsland (mint no longer available but coral gorgeous too!)
Necklace - RiverIsland (similar) - £12.00
Sandals - NewLook - £10.00 (IN THE SALE!)

Love these necklaces!

Evening One

We ended our first day in Paris with a trip to Le Durer, a wonderful little local restaurant...


...that does by far the best French onion soup I have ever had.

Ammmmmazing!!!
From Le Durer we went on to see the Moulin Rouge. If I'm totally honest I was a little underwhelmed with the show, I think we're very spoilt with the incredible shows we have on the West End so my expectations were, perhaps, unfairly high, but it was a great evening all the same. 

To the show I wore this lovely maroon RiverIsland dress. It is a tricky dress in regards to underwear, it is very figure hugging, but being double layered it doesn't cling to the bumps you don't want clung on to.
RiverIsland only £28.00!
Similar shoes - Newlook - £12.00

Stay tuned for more of Bex and the city of Paris

Outfit of the Day - Sunday 22nd June

Sunday afternoon I popped into Richmond to see my gorgeous cousin and bride to be Kayleigh, to meet with the hen party as in a months time we're jetting off to Marbella for the hen doo. 

For the super fun afternoon I wore my NewLook strapless jumpsuit.



I have had this jumpsuit a couple of years now and I LOVE it!!! It's so comfy, easy to wear, you don't get strap tan marks, it doesn't matter if you haven't tanned your legs and you can dress it up or down.

I went for a casual and simple look on Sunday with simple brown sandals and my Muru snowflake necklace.

AND LADIES YOU ARE IN LUCK...


Although I got this jumpsuit a while ago NewLook are showing almost identical jumpsuits this season.

Lots of my friends tell me that couldn't wear a strapless piece as they need to wear a bra so this is a perfect alternative.

A slightly more dressy version of the strapless jumpsuit, I think teamed with a statement necklace, heels and a fabulous up doo this piece would look incredible!

I am sooooo excited this jumpsuit is back and in more colours, I defiantly ordered the navy blue one today. Its just so easy, breezy and can be made to look fantabulous,

Happy shopping (you know you want to!)

Birthday Girl!!

This Tuesday I tuned the grand old age of 27, and what a birthday it has been. 
My friends and I went out on Friday night for drinks to celebrate, to which I was my newly purchased Miss Guided dress.


(click on picture below to view dress on Miss Guided website)



I teamed the dress with these royal blue pointed stilettos from NewLook, I loved how it added a pop of colour

NewLook - £19.99
For my birthday drinks we went to 21, a lovely cocktail bar in the heart of Covent Garden

The waiters were so lovely, the nibbles we delicious and we had a really good night!



Celebrations with the family

For what I thought would be a nice quiet dinner with the family (which was actually a night full of laughter and prosecco - love it!) I wore this jumper, trouser combo.


I love this embellished H&M jumper (it has literally just hit the stores ladies!), I smartened the jumper up with a white shirt worn underneath, and wore a pair of black peg leg trousers, also H&M.  

We had a wonderful evening in The Anglers in Teddington. If you're ever in the area I really recommend this pub, especially if the weather is good as it has a huge beer garden, a children's play area and the food is fab pub food!

The Anglers
Me and my crazy family!

Time for presents!!

I felt spoilt rotten this year with some incredible gifts from my friends and family.


I knew this year I wanted to get a really nice bag and so mum, dad and my brother joined forces to get me this amazing Kate Spade bag.
The girls in the Kate Spade store in Westfield were an absolute dream, they couldn't have been more lovely and even thought we bought the bag just a day before my birthday they gift wrapped it beautifully so I could open it the next day.

The boy did good!

I was also given this gorgeous Thomas Sabo charm bracelet from my very special man. We have recently come back from a long weekend in Paris (stay tuned for those outfits) so the Eiffel Tower was the perfect first charm, that brings back lots of wonderful memories.

From one of my fabulous friends I received this gorgeous Accessorize necklace (Thank You Nat!)



Naturally Prosecco was received along side this card that is just so incredibly true!!! 
(Thank you Rach!)

Afternoon Tea at The Dorchester

My flatmate and I decided this year instead of giving each other gifts for our birthday's we'd take each other out for champagne afternoon tea, and where else is there to go other than one of the worlds most prestigious hotels - The Dorchester


We started off the day with bucks fizz and poached egg on spinach and an English Muffin.




I'm not much of a cook so was pretty please with the way these turned out, I am now the master of the poached egg!!

For such a special day I wanted to create a look that was summery and elegant. 


I teamed this white H&M skater dress, with a simple single breasted black blazer. I accessorised the look with a gold bar Oasis necklace and tan wedge heels. 

Get the look



 


It was an absolutely wonderful afternoon, and the food was gorgeous!

Getting waisted...High Waisted!

As you'll have heard in last weeks Cover Flatter Flaunt featuring gorgeous Emily Jayne  (to read click here) one of the best ways to really show off an hour glass shape is to wear outfits that nip you in at the waist.
I too am an hour glass shaped young lady and here are two looks I've created recently that do exactly that. 
Two very different shaped skirts but they have one thing in common, they are high waisted. 

First up is this white blazer, lime green tee and black pencil skirt combo.


Get this look



The second of the looks is this high waisted leather look skater skirt and high neck cream jumper.
High waisted skater skirts are amazing! They work for so many different body shapes as well as hourglass:
For rectangle (or commonly known although I don't like the term boy shape) it'll create curves.
For top heavy ladies, it'll balance out your top and bottom half
Also for you pear shaped ladies who want to cover up your hips the skater skirt is a great way to do it and show off the smallest part of your torso.


Get this look
I've changed the top for this look as we're coming into spring and a roll neck might be a little too toasty now. I also think the print adds some fun to the outfit. 



I absolutely love my Nica satchel, I got it at last years clothes show live. It is the perfect size for all your essentials. And although it looks teeny, with all of the different sections and pockets you can fit more than you'd think in it!

***Steal my Style***

I have been so excited about taking my new In Love with Fashion jacket for it's first outing. 
Gingham is very 'in' right now, and the long length of the jacket gives it a bit of a glam feel and to top it off it's also incredibly easy to wear. 


LOVE - £36.00


This cut out RiverIsland shirt was a bit of a find in a RiverIsland sale last year.
I have tried to find something similar for you but really struggled.  

I did however come across this RiverIsland number and although there is no cut out I really like the double button detail. 

RiverIsland - £30.00



I teamed the white shirt and gingham jacket with black skinny jeans. Mine are from the Leigh range at TopShop, but any would work with this look. 

TopShop - £38.00
To accessorise the outfit and for me the key pieces is this fabulous fedora hat from H&M.

H&M - £14.00

The large black clutch bag is Miss Selfridge but a little while ago. I found this one similar in size and has a fabulous 3D effect. It keeps with the monochrome feel and compliments the gingham superbly.
ASOS - £35.00
Finally to finish off the look and to add a little bit of colour, I wore a coral tone lipstick. 

Rimmel  Coral in Gold - £4.99

***Steal my Style***

So ladies and gents, I've been doing a bit of online shopping recently (oops) and here is one of my purchases and how you can create my look.


Black Sweatshirt Andrew Jackson Dress



There isn't a whole lot more to say other than I absolutely love this dress, it's fun, comfy and funky.
The prices is also pretty amazing too!!!

Sheinside - £16.08


I let the dress do most of the talking so I only accessorised the outfit with these awesome cross earrings.

Earrings H&M - £7.99 (Not available online)
Because of the fur material at the bottom of the dress (which is SO fun), it runs the risk of making your bottom half a little bigger so to balance this out I wanted to keep the legs looking little and long. 
To do this I wore black tights for a slimming effect and super high wedge shoe boots lengthening the legs and giving a casual/dressy look.
(Similar) NewLook - Black Suedette Wedge Shoe Boot - £19.99



I added a little colour with bright nails and this fabulous deep red lipstick.
Barry M - White Nail Polish - £2.99
Barry M - Yellow Nail Polish - £2.99

Lasting Finish - Kate Moss 03 - £5.49
