Iridescent Vibes

sarah ashcroft x in the style 2017 blogger

It's almost time for IBIZAAAAA! But until then, i'm just trying to incorporate all of the amazing new wardrobe additions into my daily wardrobe because i'm too impatient to wait to wear them - story of every gals life. 
I've become such a jeans girl lately - I guess that's what happens when you work in an office and literally hide behind your desk for an entire day, but they've even incorporated themselves into my day-to-day life. But today, Sophie and I headed for a Sunday brunch to catch up and we got talking about how we would define our style. I actually realised that i'd totally lost myself and didn't even know who I was anymore. Since I moved to Manchester it's like i've had some major identity crisis and as i've grown up a little more, i've forgotten who I used to be when I had more time to care. The Laura we all know and love is all about anything glittery, furry, velvet and flared. That's it in a description - but as trends change so do we. My new mission is to get back that well dressed retro-lovin' honey we all used to know - bring on A/W!

Travel: The Dublin Guide

dublin travel guide 2017

It's actually been quite a while since I headed off to Dublin for a long weekend and i've been saving this one for a rainy day... And today is a very rainy day in Manchester! With super cheap flights, you could say it was a pretty spontaneous (albeit booked well in advance due to super cheap flights) trip. I had never been to Ireland before and since it's my heritage, I felt I was letting the team down.

Suitcase Essentials with Boohoo | Part 2

what to wear on holiday 2017

Part 2 is herrrre! Yesterday I showed you a more chilled look as challenged by the gals at Boohoo, but today i'm really getting into Ibiza mode! I'm still feelin' those beachy vibes with this fringed maxi, but absolutely lovedddd spicing it up a little for those night time feels. 
I actually also have this bodysuit in white (one reason why I love black so much) so switchin' it up really wouldn't be difficult. All about savin' that suitcase space! 
Whether it's Nikki Beach or just the beach, some looks can be so versatile that you wouldn't look out of place at either - the beauty of the maxi skirt
What are your suitcase essentials this season?

Suitcase Essentials with Boohoo | Part 1

what to wear on holiday blog

It's almost holiday time for meeee - woohoo! It feels like a lifetime since I last felt the sun shining on my skin (it's been since April - I live in Manchester need I say more) and i'm so excited to get packing. But one thing that bugs me is how expensive it is to actually get a suitcase onto a plane - ain't nobody got time (or spare dolla) for that. I'm all about that cramming everything into the on-board luggage life. To prep for my holibobs, Boohoo tasked me with styling up just one skirt in two ways - to show you guys how easy it is to be versatile without taking your entire wardrobe with you, and what dya know? They were correct - it wasn't as hard as I thought!
I chose this mega thigh high split skirt to style up (I do love a challenge...) and paired it with this amazing embroidered t-shirt for a day-to-night look. Literally from beach to bar with the fringing, right? Throw a mesh tee over your bikini and you're good to go! A maxi is also perfect for wearing different shoe styles - be it platforms, flats or heels and the thigh high splits make it even easier to wear whatever shoes you want without looking like your mum in the early nineties. 
SORTED. Stay tuned for part 2!
