Knee Highs

This weather has got us British people so confused, one day it's sunny and everyone gets excited that Summer is coming and then the next day, it's firing down with hailstones. 
With the unpredictable weather comes unpredictable outfits, one day you get a Summer OOTD and then next you get a Winter one, I'd call this one a transitional outfit though.

A while back I mentioned the struggle of finding knee high boots when you're 5ft3 and tiny but I eventually found a pair I could get away with and them being reduced from £35 to £17.99, I could hardly say no!

Pretty easy outfit, I love jumper dresses, they're simple to style, can be dressed up with some heels or dressed down with some kicks, just depends on the mood, weather or where you're going.

I do hope the weather warms up soon because I need to wear all the midi dresses I've bought! The years going so fast so hopefully the weather can catch up.

Interior | Bedroom Wishlist

Hey guys,

If you've been reading for a while, I moved house over Christmas and my bedroom is still not in order, uni took all my time and it's only now, with finishing uni and all that, I actually get time to sit down and think about decorating.

I went through a period in time, before I fell in love with fashion design, where I loveeddd interior design. My dad was forcing me to go into architecture and I thought the next best thing was interior. Now I'm able to decorate and make a space 'oh so fancy', it's triggering the love I had.

It's quite a fun thing to do, picking out bits and pieces to decorate with, choosing a colour scheme etc. 
I do share a bedroom with my sister, we're similar in age and have quite similar styles also so it will be great to join minds and make a beautiful room.
We're going for a pretty casual theme of white with accents of black, silver and grey. 

Above are a few things we thought would look good in the room, we're not 100% yet but these are the bits we've been lusting over lately.
Desenio has become my best friend for bedroom art, they've got such amazing pieces on there, for great prices as well.
Obviously, IKEA is a staple when it comes to decorating but were looking for bigger pieces on there such as mirrors and desks.
If you guys don't know about JessMessDesign, she's a lovely girl that I found on Instagram and she's a letterer. She does really cute prints and I really want one for my room, she does customised ones as well!

So that's my mini wishlist, mini because my bookmarks are full of stuff I want to get haha I can't wait to show you guys how the room will look after it's all done!

What do you guys think of my wishlist? Any tips on decorating? Would love to hear them!

Take care,

Have I Fallen Out of Love with Make Up?

This is a bit of different post I guess, judging by the title.
I tweeted a few tweets the other day and I seemed to come to terms that I may have actually fallen out of love with make up.
It's a weird feeling, I'm not saying I hate make up or I don't feel like wearing it anymore, it's more a situation where I haven't been wearing it as regularly as I used to, so it's a bit of chore when I do have to wear it.
Due to uni stress, there was no time for make up, I didn't feel like wearing it and I didn't feel I had to. 
I'm very comfortable in my own skin and I'm very religious when it comes to skin care so wearing make up is not a 'must' for me.

As of late, I've finished uni and I'm literally at the gym or in my house and any other place I have to go doesn't require make up. Don't get me wrong, when a night out pops up or I want to feel pretty whilst shopping or having lunch, I'll definitely whip out the eyebrow pencil and some concealer.

It's a strange feeling.
I don't know if anyone else feels like this or has felt like this. Let me know if you have haha

Which brings me to say that I may reduce the amount of beauty posts on FashionSquash, well in terms of make up looks. I'll definitely do reviews when I purchase new products etc but make up looks will be every now and then.
Skin care will probably take over as I do genuinely love talking about it and I find that it isn't a chore. Please let me know if you think this is a good idea and if you'd actually enjoy seeing more skincare bits on here.

Take care,

NEW IN | Knee High Boots

Remember when I was banging on about getting some good boots, for my petite self?
Well, your girl managed to get a pair!
Just a casual stroll through New Look and I spotted them, last pair, at the back of the rack, in my size. Luck or what?

Even better was that they were on sale for only £17 reduced from £34.99!

I'm not sure if they have sizes left in stock online but definitely check out your local store for the last hanging pair.
I've worn them a few times and they feel alright, the heel is definitely not high and it's chunky so it adds to the comfort.
You'll probably see these a few times before Summer really hits the UK.

What bargains have you picked up recently? I'd love to know!

Take care,

Comfy with the Madden's

Hey guys,  

This post is long overdue so let's just crack on!
I bought these Steve Madden Espadrilles a while back (2 months ago to be exact!) and I think it's time I debuted them in an OOTD. I mentioned that they were a bit of a sore break in but after the first wear or so, they're absolutely fine!
I love them, they're such easy shoes to throw on, especially as Summer seems to be creeping up on us in the UK, wearing it with some ripped jeans and a bomber or a cute dress will be the bomb-diggity.

I'm a huge knit fan and this khaki mohair jumper is life but hella itchy! Regardless of the itch, I always chuck it on.
I've had so many compliments on my Bershka biker trousers, they fit amazing, I'm someone that always has a problem with fit (I'm petite lol) and these fit so snug and not to mention, they're super comfortable!

So that's it really, a pretty neutral outfit, new bits and bobs for you guys to see. I know I've been MIA for a bit due to uni taking over my life but I'm done with second year and I have all the time in the world to go to the gym and blog.
I'll definitely do a 'second year at uni experience' post as it was so different to my first and I'll definitely be showing you guys my final pieces too so stay tuned!
