What I'm Wearing | Lace Up Flats

Lately I've been stuck between wearing open toe sandals and Converse. I needed a pair of flats to jazz up my wardrobe and wear on those 'in-between days' when it's not hot enough for summer sandals but trainers just aren't working with an outfit. Being the bargain hunter I am, these New Look lace-up flats were a steal at £11.50 reduced from £19.99 via ASOS. And I think they do the job brilliantly. They're smart enough to wear with a dress on a evening out (see below) but also casual enough to wear everyday with jeans. I love that they wrap around your ankle several times and tie either at the front or back.

DIY Easy Choker Necklaces

Everybody's wearing them, yes, 90s style choker style necklaces are back! But have you noticed how expensive they are? For what is often just a piece of cord, ribbon or suede? I've seen simple fabric chokers on sale for £10+ pounds which is just silly when it's so easy to make your own. If you're not sure whether this trend is for you, my DIY chokers are the perfect way to experiment without causing damage to your bank balance. They are really easy to make and can be completed in under half an hour. And you may even have all the necessary items at home already, so what are you waiting for!?

What I'm Wearing | Bomber Jacket

I'm loving that bomber jackets are back 'in' style, they're the easiest and comfiest item to throw on over an outfit. For some reason I'd never quite found the one. Until now. This classic khaki bomber from New Look hasn't left my side this week. It's from the 'Tall' range which means it falls slightly lower (across the bum area) and I find it much more flattering on me than the bomber jackets that gather in above the bum. New Look kindly sent these items to feature as part of their new #ThisIsNewLook interactive platform. Upload a photo to Instagram or Twitter of yourself wearing your New Look buys and using the hashtag, for a chance to win £200! Not to mention finding some quality inspiration from real guys and girls wearing New Look outfits out in the real world...

Travel Photo Diary | Greece

Josh and I went to Crete in June and it's been so busy since we got back that I'm only just getting around to sharing some photos. I had to seriously narrow these down, I' d taken hundreds of photos and don't think anyone would appreciate having to flick through them all! We had the most amazing time, it was a dream holiday, one that feels quite far behind us now which is sad. But we have lots of exciting things going on at home which has kept our minds from wandering but I know soon enough I'll be ready for another sunny holiday. This was my first trip to Greece, a country I've always wanted to visit. We stayed for 10 nights on the island of Crete, which is beautiful and I highly recommend it as a holiday destination. I would go back in a heartbeat. We even spent a sunny day in Santorini after a boat trip across the sea, so in my first trip to Greece I got to explore two islands!
