THE JEWELLERY EDIT

I love wearing jewellery, it’s the perfect way to finish off an outfit and add a touch of detail. I have recently decided it’s time to start investing some more money into jewellery, so that they last longer and I wear them a lot more often. I though I would share with you my favourite silver jewellery pieces, some of which are more affordable than others.

When it comes to jewellery I tend to always wear silver, it’s a metal which goes with any outfit and matches my wedding ring.

 SPRING STYLE: STEPPING OUT OF MY COMFORT STYLE

When it comes to style I normally stick to my comfort zone which tends to be blue jeans, white t-shirt and some converse style shoes, but I have decided this season to mix it up a bit. This idea all started whilst I was browsing through Zara and was draw to a piece I normally wouldn’t have picked up. I added a few pieces to my basket and ordered them, not knowing if they were going to suit me or even if I had the right size. When the order arrived I was amazed at how perfectly all the pieces fitted but more importantly, how much I loved all the pieces. Read more →

I love the colour of this hat and the furry bobble top, it goes with literally any outfit.
