Topshop Navy Jumper
So in a previous blog post I reviewed Alexa Chung’s it, click here to read it: Alexa Chung It Book Review.
Whilst I mainly describe disappointment with the book (with exception to its beautiful presentation) I do still remain inspired by Alexa Chung’s style. I can’t remember where exactly I saw an image of her wearing a similar outfit, knowing the amount of time I spend on Tumblr it was probably on there. There is a photo of Alexa Chung wearing a navy jumper and polka dot shorts with her arms spread wide. This navy jumper from Topshop was an old purchased, I think I bought this about four years ago. When I saw the outfit on Alexa Chung I was inspired to find some polka dot shorts to match my navy jumper and stumbled across these polka dot culottes in Primark about a year ago.

Topshop Petite White Shirt
This was a purchase made a while back mentioned in a mini Topshop haul blog post written a few months ago, I have another one for you once I have the free time to make it!
I normally don’t wear shirts like this, perhaps self paranoia is a foolish thing but there are plenty of things I dislike about my body and my stunted growth really does not help with any of the features I dislike about myself, one of which being my neck as I think it looks far too stumpy, hence I try to avoid wearing high necks or collars. However, when I tried on this white peter pan collar shirt from the Topshop Petite range, I fell in love with it because of how flattering it was around my neck. I also find the straight cut of the shirt incredibly flattering, even if a little oversized. I’ve pieced it with some black and white polkadot chiffon culottes to go for a preppy look.

Topshop Coral Scallop Shorts
I’m onto my last few snaps of what I was wearing over the summer as a petite, apologies in it taking so long, I am still waiting for a day off from work and in my evenings have six hamsters constantly demanding my attention.
This is just a basic little outfit I found great for the summer, I never normally wear vibrant colours like coral but in this outfit I think it works really well with the stripes. Continue reading “Topshop Coral Scalloped Shorts” »
Zara Navy Dress
It has been quite a while since I have posted to my blog, I’ve had to make a fair few changes to things. I’ve been working far too much again as always, but it pays the bills I guess, in fact that’s pretty much all it pays. I moved bedrooms to something much bigger than shown in these photos, I will do a little bedroom tour very soon once I am happy with it. I’ve also finally got my own PC (THANK YOU LOUIS!) so I’ve been able to start experimenting with making electronic music with one of my online friends and have also indulged in, perhaps a bit too much Dota 2, although I’m enjoying it so much that I don’t think it’s possible to play too much Dota. It has however, very kindly messed up my body clock, so staying up until 4/5am most nights playing games then getting up for work at 8am is proving to be quite the challenge, but I have risen to it well so far. Zzzzz. Continue reading “Zara Navy Dress” »
Hi everyone! Hope you’re all well. I’m starting to feel like I do too many “bits and bobs” posts at the moment but I just have so many cute pieces I want to show you all. I’m still very busy with work making the time for outfit posts very difficult as I want to take photos in natural light and can’t really because by the time I get home from work it is dark. I also haven’t felt great recently as I lost another of my hamsters, Keyser Soze. It was really upsetting, losing a pet is never easy, you can see how cute he was in my dwarf hamster video on YouTube here: My Nine Russian Dwarf Hamsters. Continue reading “Huggable Pug” »
We Are Hairy People Bear Cushion
One of my favourite purchases this month (There haven’t been many thanks to the joys of rent and council tax, oh and the bills.) is this cute bear cushion from We Are Hairy People. I’ve been eyeing up We Are Hairy People’s products for a while now as I adore the delicate look of their hand painted style however, I’ve never actually bought one of their products until now. I’ve recently changed bedrooms to a bigger room and can now watch Starcraft II tournaments or TV series in bed but I was really in need of some comfy cushions to me it easy to sit up and enjoy what I was watching.
I found this cushion for sale by We Are Hairy People, it is hand painted and I just fell in love with the style and colour combination and thought it would match my floral bedding really well. This bear cushion was £8 with £3 postage, it turned up within seven working days and has been an absolute delight to have in my room. Continue reading “We Are Hairy People Bear Cushion” »

Alexa Chung It
It has felt like ages since I’ve been able to write a blog post for you all, I feel as though work has been non stop recently and with Christmas coming up that is only going to get worse. I’ll probably focus more on book review and accessory based blog posts for the time being as I’m not sure when I will have time to make outfit posts.
So right now a book I’ve been meaning to review for a while, Alexa Chung’s It. Firstly let me point out this is the hardback version, there is now a paperback of Alexa Chung’s It available but I much prefer the appearance of this hardback, it looks absolutely beautiful on my book shelf.

Hi everyone! It has been a little while again since making my last post which was my Primark Haul for September. Today I have a mini haul of some beautiful jewellery pieces from House of Fraser. I’m writing this post as I’m sure many of you may be like me in terms of getting into habits of returning to the same shops such as Primark or New Look for their cheaper prices and avoid these more expensive stores due to the perception that everything is unaffordable. These beautiful necklaces and the bracelet from House of Fraser are all available for £10 or under, which is very affordable and to top it all off they look at lot more expensive than their price tag.
