DUNGAREES AND SANDALS

Dungaree's, Asos. Shoes, Topshop. Top, Missguided.

The weather was lush on Good Friday. I was heading out to meet my boyfriend and I thought it was the perfect moment to finally get some sandals out. Dungaree's paired with some sliders or 'Birks', with a cropped tee. A casual and comfy outfit for this 'in-between time' in weather.

STRIPED NIGHT SHIRT

Shirt, Next.
Oversized, baggy shirts to wear to bed. This striped shirt dress is from Next. I'm sometimes pleasantly surprised with Next. I have quite a few favourite pieces from there. My everyday croc handbag, snakeskin pointy shoes and a range of decor for my room. (Marble ornaments and a pineapple photo frame). I feel the shop is typically for more 'mumsy' types but don't knock it as you do find some gems. The menswear is excellent too. Good value and good quality. I'm not one for proper pajamas, I don't think I own more than one set! I stick to oversized dress shirts and baggy t-shirts with the odd slogan on ' I Woke Up Like This', or 'More Issues Than Vogue' to name a few and pair them with shorts (sometimes). But really you tend to find me in my dressing gown 99% of the time before I go to bed.....

THAT ZARA STRIPED POCKET DRESS

Boots, Topshop. Dress, Zara. Scarf, h&m.
Zara is a babe. I was shopping on my lunch break and I fell in love with so many pieces. I walked away with about four items. Two basic t-shirts and two dresses. I could have bought a LOT more, trust me. I really do forget about Zara sometimes and I honestly don't know why I don't shop in there more. The quality and style of the clothes are 100% better compared to the likes of New Look, etc. I bought a shirt from New Look the other weekend which I liked. Then when I went into Zara I found a shirt similar but it looked incredibly nicer and well made. Gutted.

The dress I purchased here is gorgeous. I would say it is quite a transitional piece. Paired with some tights and a scarf for now and then on its own with some shades and sandals in spring/summer. Comfortable, slouchy and the perfect length.

MINIMAL & BASIC - BLACK DUSTER AND BOYFRIEND SHIRT

Shirt, Asos. Coat, New Look. Jeans & shoes, Topshop. 


met up with my beautifully talented cousin, Kirsty, the other day to shoot this look. It's so refreshing having wonderfully developed photos to display on the blog from someone who knows what they are doing with a camera! If you are from the Nottinghamshire area and would like a portrait shoot or wedding photographer then I 100% recommend Kirsty. She will make you feel at ease, has a great eye for detail and has a true passion for what she does. It was great combining my love of fashion with her love of photography which made for the perfect collaboration.

I'm not one for having a shirt on with no top button done up. Something Pinterestey inspired me with this look. The oversized white boyfriend shirt, paired with ripped jeans and a black duster for a classic look. Minimal accessories and a staple watch. Add a fedora to the mix and even better. (It was slightly too windy on this occasion!)  The look would have looked great with some Stan Smiths too.

Thanks again to Kirsty for the wonderful photos!

Photos, KLR Snaps Photography.

STAY SASS WITH COCONUT LANE LONDON


I am one sucker for wall art. Now when you throw sassy wall art into the mix then you have me hooked. If you are wanting an inspiring quote such as 'What Would Beyonce Do?' then look no further then Coconut Lane London

I purchased 'Live. Laugh. Love. Brunch' because in an ideal world that would be my life. Enjoying life and being able to lunch all the time with friends. Well brunch.. I am also eyeing up 'Coffee Contour Confidence' although I still need to master the art of contouring, but maybe that would motivate me.

It doesn't stop there. I also purchased a marble phone case (my old one was too blue). I will not get over marble any time soon so it had to be done.

Minimal and chic. If this style is your thing, then give them a browse. You can also get 20% off with the code Lauralouise20.

Enjoy!
