S T Y L E | the white shirt

Oversized white shirt inspo
source | pinterest
the essential of all essentials...the white shirt
a staple piece that should belong to every woman (and man's) wardrobe. the possibilities are endless..oversized, suited, loose, fitted, half tucked in. whatever your style desires.
I will be incorporating my style inspo and how I have made it my own on the blog. Over the years I have learnt that less is more and even when there is that urge to go for that impulse buy, its not always the best thing to do. Executing the importance of building your wardrobe with the staples allows for an easier palette to work with and ultimately doesn't break the bank.
I know I have been away (again) for some time but I'm back on my feet after tackling the stressful battle of moving house and just life in general getting in the way.

R E V I E W | Michael Kors Sunglasses

*Michael Kors Sunglasses - Discounted Sunglasses
I was recently offered a pair of designer sunglasses of my choice from Discounted Sunglasses and the timing couldn't of been any better seeing as Summer has officially shown its face. The website stock some of the most iconic sunglasses brands, that are genuine and at the lowest prices possible. It's safe to say that I am a lover of sunglasses in all shapes and styles so I was pleased to have been given the opportunity in adding a new pair to my ever growing collection.

The pair I chose were the cat eye style Michael Kors sunglasses in the tortoise brown gradient colour. Having not owned a pair from Michael Kors before I was slightly sceptical in how it would suit my face especially as they were being ordered online rather than been tried on within a store.
However, the cat eye shape are so flattering and suited my face perfectly. They sit comfortably and are lightweight so there isn't the constant problem of the pair slipping off the face (a battle I usually have with others). The style has a retro-inspired look and the tortoise frame colour gives them a cool finish that can be easily be worn from day-to-day or for glamorous getaways. 

These are definitely my new go to sunglasses and couldn't be any happier with them. Having come complete with a sturdy branded case and cleaning cloth, the pair have kept their top condition after being worn a couple of times already. So if you're looking for a good quality pair of sunglasses without breaking the bank then Discounted Sunglasses is the website for you.

O U T F I T | khaki combo

Photographer : Randy Harricharan
crop top - missguided (via risky) | high waisted leather trousers - vintage | faux fur scarf - dorothy perkins | heels - christian louboutin | fedora hat - primark | biker jacket - topshop

Can you tell by now that I have a slight obsession with an outfit that is the same colour palette.
I don't know if it's because it's easier to put together or if I am drawn to the simplistic feature but it just seems to be working for me. This khaki combo worked better than I expected and may be incorporating this colour more for the summer.  

I take pride in wearing these high waisted leather trousers as they possess such great quality and I purchased them for such a small price (£5 to be exact). There can be an disproportional balance in choosing quantity over quality, however always question if you 'need' it rather than 'want' it. We are all guilty of committing this's knowing when to discipline your spending habits. To reduce me breaking the bank, I always get creative and love experimenting like this wrap crop top...simply by just wearing it backwards. 

// Tip : Choose items that can be alternated again and again with different items to make a whole new outfit
