Boutique Of Molly: Spring Fling

Hey guys! Now as many of you know by now, I love a good dress. I’ve loved wearing dresses for so long now that I can’t even express how much I love them, I just do.

So during a Twitter chat one night, you can imagine my absolute joy when Boutique of Molly contacted me, asking if I’d like to review some of their clothing.

I immediately dashed (can I say dashed? I clicked furiously) onto their site, and browsed through to see what they had to offer, and immediately fell in love with 2 dresses in particular. (Well ok I fell in love with about 5, but I didn’t want to test my luck.)

Boutique Of Molly is a really fun and unique brand, that aim to offer celebrity-inspired styles, at affordable highstreet prices. I personally love that brand new styles are added daily, so it’s fun to check out the site each day and see what new styles have been added!

So today I’m showing you guy the two gorgeous dresses that I was kind enough to receive!

As soon as I saw this dress, I knew that it had to be mine. It fits in with my girly style perfectly, and as we all know, if there is a skater style dress covered in flowers, I’ve got to have it.

However, I chose this dress because I thought that it is quite unique. I do have a lot of skater dresses with floral patterns on, but they are usually coloured dresses with a black floral print on, whereas this is a really bright and vibrant tulip pattern on a crisp white dress.

I also love the straps, as they split into two smaller spaghetti straps as they reach up to your shoulders, giving this dress a fun, flirty summer vibe.

I was really happy with the quality of this dress, as I think I’d gotten too used to how Primark and New Look dresses feel, so when I felt this dress, it felt like a nice high-end quality dress. It’s made of scuba-like material, meaning that you never need to iron it, and it sits beautifully when you’ve got it on.

A bodycon dress?! That I like?! Boutique of Molly have actually done it, and created a bodycon dress that I enjoy wearing, and feel comfortable in. Don’t get me wrong, not everyone is going to love this dress as I do think you’ve got to feel comfortable with it really hugging your curves.

It’s obviously a plunge neck dress, but with a magical metal insert in the V, that gives you a lot of hold, so you can feel confident wearing this dress without a bra. I tried wearing this dress with a strapless bra, but it was visible through the plunge, so I would recommend wearing it without one at all. Don’t worry, with the combination of this scuba material, and the V, you’ll be guaranteed support.

The straps are so thin and delicate that I think really adds to the luxury feel of this dress, and makes it perfect for summer events. It’s also quite a modest length, so you don’t need to worry about showing too much skin.

Both of these dresses feel amazing on, and I love them. They are definitely of a higher quality than any other dress I own (apart from my prom dress, ha!) but are still pretty and modest enough to wear casually.


I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and have a cheeky look through Boutique of Molly’s site, to see if there’s anything that you like, I can’t recommend them highly enough, shipping was so speedy, and the service was absolutely lovely.

Autumnal Lookbook

As the weather is quickly changing, and we’re experiencing crisper mornings and evenings, today I thought I’d share with you guys a little autumnal lookbook, to give you some style inspiration for these lovely autumn days!


Autumn LunchScarf | Primark | £7 Grey Long Sleeve High Neck Sweater | New Look | £19.99 Wine Skater Skirt | New Look | £14.99 Tights | Primark | £3 Shoes | Primark | £12Scarf | Primark | £7 Grey Long Sleeve High Neck Sweater | New Look | £19.99 Wine Skater Skirt | New Look | £14.99 Tights | Primark | £3 Shoes | Primark | £12I think this outfit is so cute and cosy, that it’s perfect for any lunch dates you might have during autumn time, because you can look stylish, but still be super warm, because these tights are thick and this scarf practically doubles as a blanket!

So it’s perfect for just lounging around in, or wearing to school or university.

These mustard coloured button down skirts are everywhere, in every store and every autumn trend, so I’d definitely recommend picking one of these up! Also this look has a slightly different element from most usual autumnal looks, because instead of thick black tights, I’ve matched them to the grey of my top. Patterned tights are always cute to wear with skirts, and these keep you super warm too!


That’s it for my Autumnal Lookbook, let me know which of these looks was your favourite! Do you have any go-to style tips for the colder autumn weather?

Expectations VS Reality: Having A Brother

I think some of the funniest videos and blog posts are ‘Expectations VS Reality’ ones, they can cover just about any topic, and they are totally relatable, so today I thought I’d show you guys the expectations and reality behind having a younger brother.


Watching movies | Expectation:

1 exp

You hope that the two of you can sit down for an awesome evening of watching a movie together. You’ll both settle on a movie that you’ll enjoy, and the hours will fly by. But oh no, your younger brother has already (by whatever means necessary) watched every movie that has ever been released, online in the middle of the night before.

“But Ty, that movie came out yesterday.” “Seen it.”

Reality:1 real


Music tastes | Expectation2 exp

Everyone assumes that as a teenage girl, I’ll be constantly bothering my brother with the loudest pop music. (More specifically, boy bands). But oh no, the harsh reality is that your younger brother will make you follow his Spotify playlist, and you will get a notification every time he adds another One Direction song to it.

Reality:2 real


Taking pictures together | Expectation3 exp

Actually, this one can really apply to just about any situation that involves the two of us. You picture an adorable, perfect picture to share with your family, or you’d like to plan an afternoon out with your brother and grab some lunch. But he’s always. asleep.

So those are some of the expectations and reality that I could think of behind having a younger brother! Do you have a younger or older brother? Let me know in the comments if you get people asking you what it’s like to have one! In conclusion, brothers: can’t live with them, can’t live without them.

Spring Must-Haves: Powder

Founded in 2009, and winning Fashion Accessory of the Year in 2013, there is no stopping the force that is Powder. They recently contacted me to ask me to select some of their spring products and create some outfits and a wish list, and I very eagerly accepted, for a multitude of reasons; their products are all very unique and suit my vintage-inspired style, and they sell everything at an affordable price! Their website is also just my style, and very easy to navigate, you could spend ages browsing through their designs.

So without further ado, here are 3 of their pieces that I have created into 3 styles!


outfit1

Casual-Chic | Here I have paired the Lola infinity scarf with my New look “Weekends I Love You” t-shirt, my New look black ripped jeans and my plain tan heels. This is a simple look, but remains stylish, and the colours all compliment each other nicely, nothing is too distracting, so it’s quite a classic look. And as the scarf is an infinity one, you don’t need to worry about how is best to wear it with this look, just slip it on and you’re good to go!



outfit2

Cute & Girly | Here I have paired the Long Lace Top Socks with one of my floral playsuits. This look is so easy to pull off, takes no time to put together and it’s perfectly girly. The florals and plain ballet flats are perfect for spring, and these socks are not only adorable, but perfect for spring-time when the weather isn’t quite suitable for bare legs.

These socks are not yet available, so do excuse the missing toes as full pictures were not possible.


OUTFIT3Vintage Inspired | Here I’ve created a very vintage-inspired outfit, featuring the Collette scarf. Again, this look is very classic, as I have said before, a black skater skirt is an absolute staple if you like to wear dresses and skirts. Pairing it with a peachy-coloured top, plain black heels, and I chose to add pearls, and instantly you’ve got a gorgeous vintage style. This scarf kind of reminds me of a ballerina, because of it’s light colour and white floral detailing, so I think it’s perfect to wear with a very classic look.


So those are the pieces on my Spring wishlist from Powder, have yourself a little browse and let me know what you’d add to your wishlist and how you would style it!

How To Style: Black Skater Skirt

HTSFor me, there is one staple that anyone that likes to wear dresses or skirts should have; and that’s a black skater skirt.

Every time I went into a shop, I’d be scouring the rails looking for the perfect versatile skirt that I could wear with anything. I had many skirts and dresses already, but they all had other pieces that they went well with, and not much else. And then I found it. A black skater skirt. Now it is my number one recommendation to anyone, it’s great if you love skirts and would love another, and it’s great if you’re not sure whether or not you could match it with other items in your wardrobe, because it goes with just about anything.


So today I though I’d share with you guys 4 different ways that I would style a black skater skirt.


crop

1. with a crop top – you can pair any colour crop top you like and a pair of flats. This outfit is best suited for the warmer weather of the summer because otherwise you are gonna freeze. Put a cardigan over it, and it could also be a nice outfit for an evening meal.

2. with a smart tucked in shirt – I would put black tights and heels with this outfit, and it’d be perfect for going out if you don’t want to commit to anything too sparkly.

3 . with a collared shirt and jumper – this outfit it quite office/uniform inspired and suitable if you have wardrobe requirements that you have to stick to.

Purple jumper, Papaya £14


stripes

4. with a patterned long sleeved top – this outfit it cute and flirty and it doesn’t look too overboard if you’re pairing the skirt with a pattern or stripes, because the black keeps it classic.
