Summer Looks for less with Motel Rocks

I always love a good Motel sale. I always manage to pick up a few bargains. Here's my top sale picks from the sale commencing Monday the 22nd of March. Shop the rest of the sale here.

I've had such a fun weekend. I was supose to be re-painting my flat but got a bit distracted with playing the sun. Bring on the summer!

Masculine Tailoring

T-shirt- Adidas
Trousers- Cow Vintage
Jacket- Topshop
Shoes- ASOS

I've been wearing this jacket a lot recently it's a really versatile. Normally light coloured jackets don't really suit me but some how the black check makes this one work especially as I have a lot of black clothes. It's a shame it's not a little bit thicker because it's too thin to be worn alone. It must have been poplar for Topshop because despite being a little over priced for what it is, it's sold out already. 

I got these trousers from Cow vintage. I bought them a few weeks ago when I had a massive vintage spurge. Sadly they are a very itch material so I haven't worn them much. I think the grey scale look works really well with my bright hair. The last of the blue is washing out now so it's almost green again. I'm thinking of dying back to blue though, as I was enjoying the change. 

We're in this really awkward in-between weather at the moment between Winter and Spring where you never know if you'll step outside into the sun or cold. Yesterday afternoon I was shivering at my desk and today I've got loads of layers on and it's baking.

LFW Day 2

Skirt- Topshop
Shoes- Adidas
Jacket- Yayer*

I haven't really had the right head space for blogging the past few weeks but better late that never! This is my second outfit from London fashion week. I have been completely obsessed with this top ever since I first saw it.  It's not an easy one to style. It's also a bit of an awkward to wear because it's a crop top but also quite a warm jumper. 

I borrowed my friend Charlottes shoes. We have a mutal Adidas obbsession so we swapped shoes for the day. Although they were a size small so my feet were a bit sore by the end of the day.

LFW Day 1

Camo vest- Missguided*
Camo Trousers- Missguided*
Snapback- Stussy
Jacket- Topshop

This fashion week has taught me that sometimes warmth does come before fashion. After waiting outside for 45 minutes in the freezing cold to get into a show I reallllllllly wish I'd worn a huge coat or something. Anyway lesson learnt.

I adore coloured camo and the colours in this two piece are just subtle enough for it to be really wearable. Missguided are just so on point. I'm loving their vibes and it just has to be said that the quality is not compromised at all for the price. 

You may also have noticed I dyed my hair dark blue for a change! Let me know what you think.

Red on red

Jumper- Cow Vintage
Leggings- Betsey Supernova*
Cap- Stussy
Shoes- Adidas

I’ve always had a thing for coordinating colours within an outfit and I’m particularly enjoying bold colours at the moment like red, yellow and cobalt blue. Red is a current favourite for me. It’s been a while since I’ve really embraced wearing red so I think I’ve probably gone a bit crazy with it. It’s such a sticking colour and works really well for people like me with dark hair and pale skin. 

I also bought a lot of new vintage clothes at the weekend. It’s really great to find things that are a little bit unusual and It’s so nice to wear things that you know you’re unlikely to see anyone else wearing. Manchester is a great place for vintage shopping. I must make the effort to get into the centre more often!

Betsey supernova kindly sent me these leggings. They have some really quirky designs which are all handmade. Definitely worth checking out.
