I have been receiving a few emails lately from the lovely people at etailPR about a bloggers challenge to create an outfit inspiration for Cheltenham Ladies Day which happens 11th March 2015. I decided to have a bit of fun creating a collage of my favourite look with the aim of injecting some colour into my wardrobe. I am always really careful with colour as I am super pale and like to avoid looking even pastier! So here’s my look for the #ColourMeMarch Challenge.

  1. Embellished Karen Millen Red Dress
  2. BooHoo.com strappy Black Sandals
  3. ASOS Highbury Heeled Sandals
  4. Oasis Box Clutch
  5. Golden Arrow Ring
  6. Butter London Nail Polish
I decided to put 2 different pairs of shoes in my collage as I adore both pairs and was torn to choosing one but I also know that sometimes too many straps might look a bit crazy so I added the second pair. I added the bright blue polish as a way of making anyone’s nails pop as the only thing making it pop is the dress really. I chose the whole outfit as its something out of my comfort zone but I know that it would amazing at a ladies day event like Cheltenham.
What do you think of my collage and outfit inspiration?

My favourite spring coats under £50

 Recently I have been browsing the sites online looking for some new clothes as I feel like I need a new look or a refresh in my wardrobe at least. I started looking for Spring coats mainly as the coats I own are rather bulky and winter-esque. I have picked quite muted colours as I am not a huge lover of bright shades as they can make me look even more Casper-ish than normal!

My favourite spring coats
I have found 6 of my favourites which I have listed below including their links and the prices I saw them at. These were the prices as of 24/02/15 but understandably these can sell out quickly at these prices.
  1. Wool Blend Coat – £27 – newlook.com
  2. Chicnova Fashion Coat – £28 – chicnova.com
  3. Black duster Coat – £28 – newlook.com
  4. Monki White Coat – £29 – monki.com
  5. Grey tweed coat – £20 – romwe.com
  6. ASOS funnel Coat – £24 – asos.com

If I had lots of pennies I would have snapped them all up straight away so I plan to think about them properly before parting with any money, and I may spot another one I like in the meantime 🙂

Have you found any coats/jackets you can share with me?

American Apparel Yoga Pants: Buytshirtonline

Now I won’t admit to being an avid Yoga-doer but Christmas 2013 I mentioned it to my boyfriend and he bought me some yoga DVD’s for christmas which was a lovely surprise, as I hadn’t realised he had paid much attention really. I have done it on and off for the last year and some and have thoroughly enjoyed it even though it causes me some pain sometimes and yoga for beginners is sometimes a bit full on.

I received an email from Buytshirtsonline asking me to pick a product from their American Apparel range that I could try out and possibly review on my blog. Naturally I was chuffed because I love this brand and scoured through the pages until I settled on some yoga pants.


The pants are lovely and stretchy with a fold over band at the waist and a slight flare to the bottom. They look lovely on and although they are quite fitted they don’t feel too constricting. Overall I am really impressed with the quality and the fit, and having looked at their full range on the site, very affordable through Buytshirtsonline.

Having looked through the rest of the site, I am really impressed with the affordability of many of their items. There are so many great value items on there that it’s worth taking a look.

Have any of you tried any other American Apparel clothing that you could recommend to me?
