The Perfect Jumper For Spring

Okay, so Spring doesn’t technically start until March but still…

I bought this jumper shortly before Christmas and it’s been a staple necessity in my wardrobe. I can wear it out to brunch with friends, to a nice dinner with the Mr or to the office with my Topshop Joni jeans.

It’s a jumper for all occasions.

The Best Jeans On The High Street

I used to hate jeans.

It’s true.

From college right up until my fourth year at University, I used to constantly wear black leggings (no matter the weather).

But now, I’m flipping obsessed but finding the ones which suit your body shape AND make you feel a million dollars is v. tricky business.

I’ve had jeans from Next and Gap for the past 4-5 years and I’ve worn them solidly every day of the week (they got washed, don’t worry), but in January, my trusty three pairs decided to split at the crotch and leave me hanging.

Cheers lads, I owe you one.

That is where Topshop came into play…

Injecting A Pop Of Colour Into My Wardrobe

My only resolution for 2018 is to inject colour into my wardrobe.

I wear a lot of black, navy, white and grey but towards the end of December, I decided that I wanted to start wearing a little bit more colour.

Don’t worry, I won’t be dressed as a rainbow anytime soon, but a little bit of colour has the ability to change my mood which I need from time to time.

When I collaborated with Aintree Shopping Park just before Christmas, I bought myself a scarf from Marks & Spencer which I’ve worn pretty much every single day.

New Wardrobe Addition: The Perfect Ankle Boots

I’ve developed a real love for ankle boots.

I’ve always purchased them from New Look, as they’re one of my favourite shops on the high street, they’re good quality and the price won’t make your purse cry.

Right before Christmas, I went shopping in Aintree Retail Park as part of a collaboration and I knew straight away that I wanted a new pair of black ankle boots, either from Next or Marks and Spencer.

The second I walked into Next, I headed straight to the shoes (v. unlike me as I usually gravitate towards the home section) and within ten minutes or so, I’d found the most perfect pair of ankle boots.

My Go-To Every Day Bag

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this Accessorize bag.

I’m pretty sure I purchased it in a January sale one year, but it’s driving me mad that I can’t actually remember…

BUT, I wanted to blog about it as I finally got round to taking some photos with it as I use it pretty much on a daily basis as well as the bag which my Nan passed down to me.

The Best Coat To Keep You Snug This Winter

Oh, I do love Winter.

Hot chocolates, candles, fairy lights, bobble hats, knitted jumpers, chunky scarves, tomato soup with crusty bread and of course, a big coat to keep you snug while you wander around the Christmas markets.

I’ve wanted a new coat for a good year or so. My previous one was from Dorothy Perkins which I bought when I was 21 and that’s almost 6 years ago so I was in desperate need of a new one.

Debenhams was the first place on my list to look as they have such a brilliant range of designers and from browsing online, I fell in love with one from Jasper Conran.

My Relationship With My Body

I haven’t done a fashion post since June.

There are a few reasons behind why: nobody to take photos, no nice places to shoot the photos, no new clothes to talk about but most of all, my weight.

I’d say for the past two years, my weight has been a huge issue.

If you’ve been reading my blog for over a year, you’ll know that when I was travelling in New Zealand (March, 2016), I had extremely bad back pain and it was only until I was back in the UK that I was diagnosed with gallstones.

Not just your average gallstones. Gallstones which put me into private care for an emergency operation (January, 2017) as they were extremely severe.

I’m the heaviest that I’ve ever been.

I don’t know how much I weigh but all I know is that I’m not happy.
