Wilkommen! (Is that how you spell it… hmm… debatable) I love to be inspired outfit-wise by others. I’m a lazy bones when it comes to creating my own sassy yet stylish outfits so I tend to take inspiration (read: steal) other people’s ideas. This is what Style Swaps will be about. I used to be inspired by celebs but more and more I’m finding Pinterest to be a  great source of style-tastic greatness so expect a lot of my outfits to come from there. Enjoy!
This week I have been loving the chic all-in-white look. Now, as previously mentioned, were I ACTUALLY to wear this, it wouldn’t stay white for long… But in my head I waft elegantly to and from important meetings in the manner of a babe’in ice queen. Perhaps a la Frozen.

I Want That 001

I Want That 001

Liberty Print Blazers: Nike; Kimono: Topshop; Silk Skirt: COS; Kate Moss for Topshop Dress: Topshop; Sandals: Birkenstock


Welcome to my first ever I Want That post… As of next week it will be on a Monday but I didn’t want you to miss out this week. Essentially it’ll be a place where I can share what’s been languishing in my online shopping baskets for the past week, whispering that I buy it…

When the Liberty Print Nikes came out last year, I pined and pined for them. I did not think so much yearning could exist for a shoe but hey, whaddayaknow? This year’s offerings are not QUITE as spectacular but these fairly low-key ones would snuggle up quite nicely with my already-quite-large trainer collection.

 The kimono trend is something I attempt to dip in to every summer and usually end up failing at… I’ve never found one that’s the perfect length for my short torso and dinky legs (I’m being kind to my body here). This Topshop beauty from the petite range comes pretty close though and makes me want to wear it whilst lounging by the pool, sipping on pina coladas.

 Kate Moss’ much anticipated Topshop collection hasn’t disappointed once again. Can Mossy do no wrong?! This dress was without a doubt my fav. It’s perfect for lazy picnics in the sunshine. (As a side note, I think if I actually attempted any picnics in it, there’d be Fanta stains and Hobnob crumbs down it within seconds but  let’s keep up the pretence, shall we?)

 I love Cos for the simple fact that they do ‘hiding a jelly belly’ style to perfection. Just eaten a full Nandos platter to yourself? No problem. Couldn’t decide between cake or ice cream so had both? That’s ok! Their forgiving silhouettes mean I’m always drawn to them and, as an avid Nandos/cake/ice cream lover, this silk skater skirt has all my summer-time munching needs covered.

 The leopard-print Birkies are probably the epitome of ugly-shoe-wearing that’s sweeping the fash world right now. I do not care. I do not care so much that I’ve actually already purchased these and am eagerly awaiting their  arrival. Join the ugly-shoe revolution with me! (Or not… I hear gladiators are back this summer)

 What have you been lusting after this week?

Rollin’ up to uni…

Safe to say, if I owned these items, my first day at uni would be the BEST day ever. Prep-tastic!

A VERY large apology

I’m sorry readers… I’m really, really, REALLY sorry (are you getting the sorryness yet?)

I think it’s been about a month and a halfish since I last posted… well… anything. What am I? Lazy (yes), busy (ish… so yes), generally unmotivated (definitely).

By way of an explanation, I’m moving to the fabulous city of Brighton in a mere two weeks to embark on an English Language degree at the University of Sussex. Therefore, my time has been taken up with setting up student bank accounts, sorting out all sorts of funding/accommodation conundrums and partying like there’s no tomorrow with friends I’ll be leaving soon *sob*.

I really hope to blog more once I’m there and settled in. If I’m not mistaken, there’s actually a competition where you have to blog about your Fresher’s Week experience so I’m all over that (“all over that”? really??). PLUS, everyone knows that Brighton is a groovy fashion hotspot so I’ll no doubt be carrying on my street-style feature “darrn sarrf”.

In short, the next two weeks will see sporadic posts, perhaps not ALL fashion-related. I am feeling fairly inspired atm though (lying in an insipidus manner in bed with female man-flu) so expect a polyvore gluttony or perhaps a fashion lust-list appearing in the next few hours.

Once again, apologies dudes. Even though I still don’t think I have “dudes” yet. Probably because I never blog. What a delicious irony… maybe. Shush, Lesley.
