Jumper - New Look
Skirt - River Island
Jacket - Dorothy Perkins
Bag - Primark
Boots - River Island 

At this time of year I love mixing textures and prints, like this soft grey knit and leather jacket. Layering up as it starts to get slightly warmer is my perfect alternative to heavy coats!

I picked up this skirt in the January sales for an amazing £10. I think the dark background shade is ideal for right now - it introduces florals and a spring-like feel without feeling too premature. Combining this with opaques and black ankle boots makes this my ideal pre-springtime outfit!

NAILS | VALENTINES INSPIRED

As an alternative to the traditional red & pink Valentines theme, I've gone for softer colours, more like the shades I normally wear, for my Valentines inspired nail art. I also think they're a little less in your face than big red love hearts! 

Whenever I've seen written words on nails I always think it looks too difficult, but practice really does make perfect! These nail wheels are handy for practicing different techniques without messing up your own nails. I also like to try out different ideas so I can refer back to it when I need nail-art inspo!

FASHION | A WHITE SHIRT 3 WAYS

A classic white shirt is a typical wardrobe staple. I'd been searching for a well-fitting one for a while, and after finding it, it got me thinking about different ways to wear it. I usually tend to reach for my jeans, but it's always good to have a bit of a shake-up and wear pieces in ways you normally wouldn't - plus it means you can get a few outfits out of one item...
Shirt | Jumper | Skirt | Necklace | Shoes

I fell in love with this midi skirt after spotting it on a cheeky shopping trip - I'm a little bit obsessed with stripes. The fifties midi-skirt shape is everywhere at the moment, so it's a perfect piece to see you into spring. I wasn't sure how I'd wear this trend initially but I think teaming it with a fitted jumper and a hint of a collar peeking out is a cute way to do it. 


Shirt | Dress | Boots | Bag | Hat 

You might've seen my post a few weeks back about another thing I'm lusting after - the pinafore dress. I think this is the perfect work outfit; it's preppy and cool but still girly and feminine. This would also look gorgeous with a denim pinafore if you're after a more casual look. 


Shirt | Trousers | Jacket | Shoes
I'm always a huge fan of cigarette trousers, particularly printed ones. This gorgeous pair are from Topshop and I love the big, bold floral pattern. I think the crisp white shirt and tailored duster jacket work beautifully with the fun print! 


How would you style a white shirt?

NAILS | CIATE BIG BEAUTY BUS

As soon as I see a 'clearance' aisle in Boots I'm immediately drawn in, because among the broken lipsticks and opened cosmetics, you can grab an excellent bargain! My most recent is this Ciate Beauty Bus (find it here) which includes six mini Ciate nail polishes, for a purse friendly £7.

Unusually for a beauty set I actually love all of the shades, especially for summer, and I'm a sucker for a glitter polish. I've not yet used them on my nails but on the nail wheel they applied smoothly and needed two coats for a nice opaque finish.

I've not tried any Ciate polishes before, so I'm super excited to give these a go. This cute little set would also make a gorgeous gift for someone - for just over £1 a polish you can't really go wrong!

Did you grab any beauty bargains in the January sales?
