I’ve really enjoyed mixing things up, to some a crime is silver and gold (also guilty of using in this) and to others its spots and stripes, we all know how florals are the groundbreaking wowza of the spring or not but I’ve been inspired by alot of music documentaries, lots of Kurt Cobain and Woodstock journeys, so naturally I see myself slipping through a musical phase.

I’ve had this kimono for months on end, waiting and pleading for it to get warm (and quickly!) Long kimonos are always welcome in my wardrobe, as you’ll all gather I’m a big fan of long jackets, coats and things I can throw on and layer and this is thin and looks great with a longer sleeve. Alternatively a short sleeve has got me hyped to get tanned and ready for summer, I feel the cold so badly and this halter neck is a thick material but super flattering and uber stylish, stripes never go out of style! I picked it up heading down to the Trinity Leeds Primark, and amazingly it was £5.50! Bargain ding ding ding! It’s a staple piece to own, that I think could take you around each season to be styled (I feel a style challenge coming on!)

I’ve teamed this with a few month old scalloped leather shorts from MinkPink, I got them through Frank and Doll who supply loads of other fab brands so I can choose a great selection in one place!

I’ve been hooked on Shoe Licks the metallic stickers on the undersides of my shoes, I’ve previously put them on in this post, which I’ve seen that image roaming around tumblr a few times. They’re cheap and cheerful and this code: pimpmyheels means you get your first pair for only £2.00! If you know how you’d like to position them on your chosen shoes, just grab some scissors and get snipping around the shape of the heels and tadaaaa Louboutins for a cut price!

For accessories I’ve piled I’ve stuck to my regulars, rings, watches and bracelets. Today is a watch from Sekonda via House Of Watches, a simple watch face, with minimalistic crystal embellishment, reminds me of a Olivia Burton and Daniel Wellington so naturally I loved it straight away! All the watches on the site are super affordable and come in such a diverse range, they look after some great names in the watch world and some amazing brands, lots of people I know head to them for their go-to watches so you should totally check them out!

On my wrist I’ve got a Pandora from The Jewel Hut, with two adorable charms, they’re sweet, feminine and quite delicate looking, I cannot wait to keep adding to the collection, I’ve always wanted a Pandora and when I was little everyone I knew had one! As we all know Pandora is a family start up, and how far its grown as a brand, literally most people know of Pandora and a lot of girls own a Pandora bracelet, I cannot wait to keep building up my bracelet. I think it fits really well with the current spring trends as alot of their designs incorporate florals or dainty charms. I love that they come in a variety of colours too, you can pick from Gold, Silver, Glass, Enamel and Pavé. I love the charms they currently have in stock right now, check them out here!
