Maxi dress 3 ways

Bralet- £10 Motel sale

Shirt- Primark £5

Belt- Vintage

I can't wait to be able to wear this maxi dress in the summer as I find its hard to find the right occasion in the cold weather. Don't be fooled into thinking that long dresses are only for formal occasion: layering over or under the dress makes it so much more versatile and casual. For a day look team the dress with bralet, leather jacket and sandals then to switch to the evening put on those wedge heels and add some glamour with a sparkly belt and blazer.

Cropped top 3 ways

Bargains are best

Dress- Topshop from ebay

Jacket- New look, tights-Topshop sale

Embellished shorts- Topshop from Ebay £9 

Summer chiffon dress- River Island £15 sale

Crop top- Miss Selfridge from Ebay
 After deciding I was in need of new clothes I scoured Ebay and the sales to find these amazing bargain buys! Ebay is just great for finding clothes from high street and high end shops which are still on trend for a fraction of the price. Many of the shops still have amazing sales as well, if you look hard enough you'll find hidden gems that have missed the eye of the other shoppers!

Space and Galaxy Trend

All things galactic and metallic are huge this year so far and for my take on the trend I have added my Topshop metallic baggy Tee with Motel galaxy shorts. The leggins below are only £11.99 from missguided!! Lots of other shops like Topshop and ASOS are stocked up on space themed clothes
Leggins- Missguided £11.99

Vintage Shirt 3 Eras




This yellow shirt was such a bargain from a vintage store for £3!! I find that sometimes it can be hard to style vintage clothes so here I have put the shirt with three different outfits influenced by three different eras in fashion. The first is the 30s to the 40s and so I have added with a neutral coloured knee length skater skirt and vintage bag. The second is similar to the 80s style with leather look trousers and high waists- Team this look with killer black wedges for a night out. The last look is the most modern as it is 90s inspired-double denim. This trend can be really tricky to pull of but to keep it modern, understated and still interesting either keep to opposite denims or denims that are very similar in colour. Also if you are wearing high waisted denim, a cropped jacket would be better than one that overlaps.
