Casual Sundays










Shirt - Asos // White Top (underneath) - Topshop // Jeans - Topshop // Shoes - Matalan // Bag - New Look (similar)


Well hasn't it been a while! I got back from my holiday last week, we had such a nice time. Lots of relaxing, food and too many cocktails, and as a birthday surprise we also went swimming with dolphins which is something i've always wanted to do so that was uhhhhmazing. I got back and went to type up a post and suddenly felt like a change, so you may have noticed that i've had a whole redesign hence the lack of posts. I've still got a few finishing touches to add but didn't want to hold off posting any longer. After doing a lot of searching for something simplistic, stylish and of course easy to navigate I found Andrea from Feeric Studios. Although I installed the template myself, I emailed Andrea with a couple of questions and she got back to me very quickly and offered help should I need it. I would definitely recommend Andrea, you can find her shop here

I told you a while back that I was looking for a new camera, my iPhone has (just about) done the job so far, but I felt like it was time for an overhaul both on the page and behind the scenes. So, as my birthday came around I put in a request for a canon 600d.. and I got one!! It took a while to track down but i'm so happy with it.. now to learn how to use it using a setting other than 'automatic' haha.

So since i've been back a while now, i've decided to skip the holiday style diary (the pics were awful) and have instead styled up some of the outfits I wore a little differently so look out for those this week. This outfit is pretty casual, definitely a go-to Sunday outfit for me. I've been looking for an oversized blur shirt for a while now, and this Asos beauty is perfect. I buttoned up the top two buttons and left the rest of the shirt open so you can see the knotted top underneath. There's something about a knot that really transforms a look don't ya think. Paired with high waisted black jeans (my wardrobe staple) and these sandals that I picked up from Matalan just before holiday for EIGHT POUNDS... Yes EIGHT!. They rub a little but that's nothing that a plaster won't fix. The things we put ourselves through for fashion!! With the rucksack slung over your shoulder, this look is perfect for mooching around the shops which is exactly what I spent the day doing. Autumn is nearly upon us.. it's time to start layering up and dusting off the winter wardrobe (and of course shopping for a whole new one!!)

What do you think of my new layout? Have you started your autumn/winter shopping yet?

  3. I love this, the bag's gorgeous and your sandals are lovely and such a good bargain... I can't believe they were from Matalan (although they do stock some lovely pieces!).
    The redesign looks great and I'm glad you had a good time on your holiday also :) so jealous you got to swim with dolphins!

    1. I know, I find Matalan strange - sometimes I find loads, other times nothing at all. Thank you, I did have a lovely time, and such a nice surprise to swim with dolphins :).
