Mint Candy Apple

I've been super busy recently with work and at weekends, I've not really had a moment to myself at home to breathe. This is my first Sunday at home (without a hangover) for a while! 

I thought i'd give you an update of my Wardrobe Essentials... I've made the first step and thrown out over half my wardrobe, scary but surprisingly refreshing. Anything that I never wore, didn't fit, wasn't flattering etc was a goner! 

I've also made a few purchases recently, however, these have been for my holiday in Spain in September. I'll share these soon, when I have time to take a few piccies.

Anyway, new to my beauty wish list...

Essie Mint Candy Apple 

As a loyal turquoise/mint lover, it was no shock that I fell in love with this colour! I'm waiting for it to come in stock at my local Superdrug.

It'll be perfect for the rest of summer and on holiday with a tan.

Wardrobe Classics

I'm not sure what it is but the state of my wardrobe at the moment makes me despair! I struggle every morning to pick an outfit and I've had just about enough.

However, beautiful blogger Anna from South Molton St Style has a section dedicated to essentials (you MUST check it out, it's my new bible) and this got me thinking...

I need to do a wardrobe edit and re-build!

I'm going to create a list of my must-have essential pieces (inspired by South Molton St Style) and gradually add them to my wardrobe, hopefully eliminating the problems I'm having at the moment, by having 'go-to' staple outfits.

My list:

1. Camel Coat
2. Black Leather Jacket 
3. Boucle Jacket 
4. Classic blue denim jeans
5.Boyfriend denim jeans
6. Leather Trousers (another pair mine are dying)
7. Basic jersey tee's & tops
8. Breton Top
9. Denim shirt
10. Little Black Dress
11. Faux Fur Gillet
12. Classic Blazer 

I'm sure that I will be adding to this, I'm going to add a page for it and cross it off as I make purchases.

And of course, I will still be mixing in lots of other items that are on my wish-list + accessories & footwear!

Do you guys have any suggestions to add to my list?

Get the Look: Army Girl

Utility, Army, Camo, Military... whatever you like to call it there is already a tonne of great pieces on the high-street to put together this style. 

Burberry AW12 

Topshop Unique AW12

Burberry AW12
Topshop Unique AW12

Topshop Unique AW12

So far there is an abundance of khaki all over the high-street: Zara, Topshop, COS, Urban Outfitters and ASOS to name a few.

Here are some of my favourite pieces...




Perfect for the transeasonal wardrobe (or now as we don't seem to have summer in England anymore)... layer, mix with neutral tones such as camel, black, nude, cream, white and grey, mix textures of jersey, knit, leather, suede, sheepskin etc.

Staple piece: Khaki parka jacket

I finally graduated! 

It's a bizarre feeling, to have finished my entire education and starting my chosen career!

Apologies for the poor quality i-phone selfy! Only picture I had of my outfit without my gown.

I wore a French Connection dress / H&M Earrings / YSL Ring / Nude Patent Heels from a store in Manchester 

Bye Bye Manchester... Hello London!

Zara shoes

Zara really is one of my favourite high-street stores, if not my favourite.

The shoes in the new collection are amazing, after bagging myself the turquoise ones, I finding myself lusting after more... These two are my favourite, perfect for the rubbish weather in the UK and a transeasonal wardrobe.

These leopard print ones remind me of the old season Alexander Wang ones, that I longed after!
