Style Vs Steal- Clog Wars

As you can probably tell, I am quite the bargain hunter. When clogs first came back I wasn't sure if I liked them or not, but once I tried them on I really did like them. The only thing was, I knew I wasn't going to wear them often and so I didn't want to spend much money on them. My choice today for 'Style' is this pair from  Topshop

                                 Style Topshop £75

My choice for 'Steal' is a pair on sale, yes on sale, in Primark!
                                  Steal Primark £10

Which ones do you prefer? I must say that I do much prefer the colour of the Style option, but the price of the steal option makes Primark's pair much more attractive in my eyes!

New dress!

I got this dress on sale from missguided for only £10.99!!

I love the shoulder detail, very bling! and I really am a sucker for interesting backs!

Now I just need to find somewhere to wear it!

Goodbye bikinis

Summer appears to have ended, and it is with great sorrow that I admit to myself that I am most probably not going to be wearing these again for another year *sniffel sniffel* 
So to mark this terribly sad day of bikini putting away, I thought I would share my favourite 7 bikinis with you!
Number one, my ultimate favourite bikini, £10 F&F at Tesco. I love leopard print, I love bandeau bikinis. Therefore...done done aaaaand DONE! 

My number 2 bikini is the absolute bargain from O'neil. I love their bikinis but just cannot afford them, but when I found this one I couldn't believe my luck! (before I tell you how much it was I think you may need to take a seat). Seated? Here goes, This O'neil bikini, which provides some killer tan-lines :s cost a mere........£5!!!!!
Number 3, for under £10 at Dunnes. This isn't actually a matching bikini, I came across the top at the end of a sale and could't locate the bottoms, so I purchased the closest match I could find! My friends bikini is from George at Asda. I cannot describe how uncomfortable that hammock was...hello rope burn!

Number 4 Simple Black bikini from George at Asda. Top £2 the bottoms I am wearing are actually from H&M about 4 years ago, but you can't see the design on them here :(

Number 5 Also a H&M number, this cost me £15 I love that its leopard print!

Number 6, George at Asda, whole bikini about £5 with Pink flower in hair from H&M.
Number 7, blue and white, stripey twisted bandeau bikini, not great for staying put whilst jumping off boats, but perfest for catching some rays! This one is from Primark for £7 

Goodbye bikinis, I will miss you lots. I will get you lots of new friends for next year in the sales :)

Festival frocks

Last weekend I went to my first ever festival...V festival in Staffordshire! It was amazing, all the acts were fantastic and the crowd was awesome! Obviously the amount of clothes is limited and the weather unpredictable which makes it hard to decide what to wear

I didn't manage to get any full length pics so here is what I got...
Day one I wore a random sleeveless top, high waisted denim shorts and lace leggings all from Primark. Unfortunatley the leggings were too big around my knees so I decided to take them off. I hunted high and low for some leopard print wellies, and finally found some in Peacocks for £14, and wore them with some long socks on sale for £3 in Topshop.

Day two I wore the same shorts with a black jumper from H&M with a wolf on the front.

Me on the floor having a rest from dancing to Florence and the Machine.

Back to reality

I got back off of holiday last week after an amazing week in Rhodes! I decided whilst packing to recycle old clothes and wear clothes I have never worn before, rather than buy new clothes for the holiday
This dress is from H&M 2 years ago! I have never worn it and only took the labels off when packing my case for Rhodes!
My sisters bought me this leopard print maxi for my birthday about 2 years ago also, from asos I think? (Kirsty please confirm)

My favourite piece in my wardrobe currently...leopard print playsuit (are you seeing a pattern here yet?) only £9.99 from H&M!!

Maxi number 2 of the holiday is this black number which I got so long ago from Dorothy Perkins. Guess how much it cost??...NOTHING! I got it free with a kimono!

Finally, this is my favourite bikini, £10 from tescos. (Leopard print of course! With Roxy flip fops.

Harem Pants

I am desperately desperate to get my hands on some harem pants!! I love them! I hated them when they first arrived on the fashion scene (ok hate is a strong word) I didn't get them at all, I just didn't understand why people wanted to be dressed like the doods selling sheesha at the hotel I stayed at in Egypt.
Now I want some, I can't seem to find any in shops. I would like them either in Khaki or black, however, I did come across these bad boys in top shop today!

Being the leopard print lover that I am, these instantly caught my eye! However, unfortunately, at £28 I just couldn't make myself purchase them. Is this going to be my biggest regret of the week?

Not quite Summer yet!

I love animals! Tigers and leopards are particular favourites of mine and I tend to incorporate them into a majority of my outfits, I have been doing this since I was about 5 and have never grown out of it!I like this top because it is up to date with todays fashion of studs, padded shoulders and crop tops. I tucked it into my high waited shorts which I love! However, as it is a crop top, it is quite risky for me to lift up my arms if I dont want to show my tummy! These are my favourite boots at the moment! They are very comfy and versatile, I Iike to team them with floral girly dresses to un-girl them a bit! As it isn't quite warm enough just yet to go bare skinned I added the boyfriend blazer and some ribbed tights.This is my favourite bag ever! It was a present from my aunty about 5 years ago and I still use it constantly now! The same day I took these pics I busted the zip :( but between my boyfriend and his handy with a needle mum they fixed it for me! :D

T-shirt, boots, blazer, tights shorts all Primark!
whole outfit costs under £35!!
