WHISTLES HAUL

Call me bias, but isn't Whistles just the greatest? Since I started working on the design team I have literally been going nuts buying everything that comes my way and to say my bank balance isn't impressed is a total understatement - It has officially evolved into nothingness...
It's not as bad as it sounds cos I have to admit, these are sample sale goodies, but trust me when I say - this won't be the last of my outrageous at-work shopping *muhahahaha*
What can I say? It's difficult working with such well-dressed ladies every day and drool-worthy clothes!

Ali Limited sunglasses *sold out in pink* available here in neutral and black

Limited Loni pumps (here)


Jourdan waxy parka (here)

Di-stressed










Top - Choies
Shorts - c/o Oasap (here)
Shoes - Kurt Geiger
Hat - Boohoo

If there's a time i'd wear shorts like these now i'm not 18, it's once in a blue moon - but clearly last night there must have been one because today, here they are! I couldn't resist the distressed look of them and since i've been back at the gym, I figured it would encourage me to work out a little harder and get those thighs summer ready! And quite clearly, the fedora is going nowhere. I'm totally late on the trend and officially obsessed, but you know me, when do I ever follow a trend (at least at first...)

Culotte Crazy






Culottes - c/o Boohoo (here)
Fedora - Boohoo
Top - Bik Bok
Shoes - River Island


For someone who is never usually influenced by trends and what everyone else is wearing, i've sure as hell been sucked into this years culotte trend. I. Am. Obsessed. Let's just say, they better be 'in' next year because I have a fair few pairs now and I can't see my admiration being over once the seasons out! I mean, what's not to love? They cover your thighs if you aren't one for getting them out, they're short and smart for all occasions, and they look super cool.
This pair from Boohoo (which are only £12!) are ridiculously amazing. I've never ordered from them before so with the low prices I was kind of expecting the general you-get-what-you-pay for quality, but the quality is literally 10x better than I ever thought it could be. I was so chuffed, I made another order after opening this one... I'm a naughty shopper lately...

The return of the beloved co-ord







Co-ord suit - Missguided (here and here)
Bag - Zara 
Shoes - Converse
Socks - River Island
Sunnies - Oasap (here)


I know you've seen this co-ord before, but i'm totally addicted to it... Plus this is a more laid-back look with it, so that means I can get away with it, right? *Such a naughty outfit repeater
I've been so absent from life lately with my leg problem but i'm back at work and showed my face at the ASOS #EpicSummer party last night and caught up with some wonderful fellow bloggers! I didn't take many photos but I did a tinsy bit of instagramming which you can find on @laurarogan :)

Eat, Sleep, Work, Repeat / The Candy Pink Jeans

Top - Topshop

Shoes - Spylovebuy (here)


Pink, pink, pink... I know....
Office-friendly styles have slowly but surely taken over my wardrobe if you haven't already noticed, but I guess that's what happens when you work for a particular brand for so long - the aesthetic and your co-workers start to influence you and that's definitely the case when it comes to anything new that I buy now - it's always a 'can I wear this to work?' situation.
What we wear to work is always something that I know a lot of people feel restricted to, but if you don't have a specific uniform, black trousers and a white shirt isn't the only outfit choice out there for you... Sometimes you just gotta get a little bit colourful!

summer jumpsuit

Jumpsuit - c/o Missguided (here)
Belt - Topshop
Bag - ASOS (here)
Sunnies - Primark
Shoes - Missguided (similar here)

The minute I laid eyes on this jumpsuit, I knew it was for me. I mean, look at it - it's perfection! I'm pretty obsessed with jumpsuits at the moment, albeit slightly fickle with them also - but this baby has a permanent place in my wardrobe. It's definitely gonna be my go-to look when I go out (where ever that may be). I think this is literally the most flattering piece i've come across in a long time, and another bonus? It's on sale right now ;)

Change Your Life











Sunnies - c/o Oasap (here)
Dress - Topshop
Shoes - Missguided (similar here)


Today is a bit of a turnaround for me. For a few weeks stuff has been ticking in my brain and i've been wanting to make changes, the kind of changes we never do because we're scared of how it will make us feel. Today i'm taking the plunge and changing my life for the better - no more holding myself back. Usually all I care about is work, work, work but from now on i'm gonna incorporate myself into that and who knows - maybe that will be the start of amazing opportunities I would previously let sail by. So yep, today, instead of feeling sad about it - I feel super good about myself and i'm ready to take on the world and spread some joy! If you're feeling down in the dumps like I have been lately, take the plunge whatever it is, put on your favourite summer dress and your best world domination shoes and leave the rest behind! Don't hold onto the bad just because it's habit. Sometimes you have to let what you're used to go, to make room for the new (and good!).
I'm so corny, I know!

The Vintage Virgin







Vintage bomber - c/o Cat Called Esteban 
Dress - ASOS
Shoes - Spylovebuy (here - back in stock!)

I'm not gonna lie, i'm not one of the cool kids that's good at vintage or has even owned vintage before. I hate sale racks and looking through rails where each garment is completely different, I don't have the attention span for that which is why i've never bothered before, but I do admire people that do.
Anyway, this is my first ever piece of vintage and I. Love. It. As someone whose hobby is putting outfits together it's exciting putting life back into something that used to be 'new and cool' and as a designer, I love the challenge of taking something old and making it contemporary. It's safe to say my vintage collection will be expanding from here!
