The Journey

top: motel, shorts: diy, boots: primark, shirt: charity shop, bracelet: c/o dixi, above knuckle and silver ring: dixi, rose ring: sisters

Wow isn't this weather amazing?! Very different from when I took these pictures last weekend. Honestly feel like I'm in a foreign country right now and it's making me extremely happy- time to change from skin tone 'fluorescent white' to 'extremely pale with freckles'- I do tan eventually (believe it or not) but because I start off such an unnatural colour you can't tell unless I whip my tan lines out aha. 

I was told I look very 80's in this outfit, picked up this top from the Motel boutique in Bristol for just £7! Bargain. Motel have lots of retro prints in at the moment I'm such a fan. I've been looking for these shorts for ages, me and my nan made them last year quite easily, just grabbed a pair of leggings from Primark and chopped them off at the right length, bought some lace and stitched it on. I had completely given up of finding them- but, they were hiding under my chest of drawers, yayy.

(Apologies for the empty cans etc in the background- classy)

Summer Ball

dress: c/o glamorous, shoes: guess, jewellery: miss selfridge

Last Thursday was our summer ball at work for all the new and old interns, the night consisted of a lot of free wine, presentations about our year, some of the cringiest awards possible (yes I received one of these!!) and fire dancers for entertainment. I wore my gorgeous dress from Glamorous, I love the cut out sides, how the skirt is different from the top and of course the fish tail... one of the best things was that no one had the same dress as me as I didn't pick it up from the high street. I know I've said it before but I'm so impressed with Glamorous this dress retails at just £38.99, it' still in stock on the site too alongside an amazing sequin design one. I also noticed the other week that they have a section in BS8 in Bristol, so if you feel the need to try before you buy- head there! My jewellery was also a bargain I got all three items for just £7, love the sales.

Stained Glass

top & belt: emilys, levis: motel, hi-tops: nike factory store, socks: primark

These pictures are taken in my Bristol house, yes there are stained glass windows all about the place- amazing. I really don't like these pictures though as my legs are out in their true paleness; buttt I had to show you the top my friend Emily made and let me borrow to wear to motion the other night- I don't normally wear pink but this top is definitely the exception. She's been dip dye'ing, tie dying and diy'ing all sorts at the moment and if you want anything like this made for you she's a pro so send me an email and I'll put you in contact with her :)

Cats Eyes

dress: ebay, shoes: newlook, belt: vintage, claw ring: dixi, fish necklace: c/o amy from the little magpie

Bought this dress from ebay over a year ago and found it at the bottom of my wardrobe so I wore it to Emma's 21st the other weekend - a mexican themed night with lots of moustaches, tequila and drunk gringos. The dress has little black cats printed on it with red eyes - creepy. Wore this cute fish necklace with it that Amy sent me as a little surprise when she sent me her leggings (toomuchofababe!!

It's the summer ball tonight, I'm wearing a dress sent to me from Glamorous can't wait to take pictures tonight and show it off! Hope the weather stays dry for it too otherwise I am going to have some seriously patchy fake tan aha, not what any one wants. Work tomorrow is going to be awful, hate hungover Fridays- ah well it should hopefully be worth it!!

Old Blue

jumper: old blue, levis: charity shop, creepers: runway shoes, hare pendant: dutty, tights: primark

Ah stupid lighting is not doing this jumper justice at all, as you can't see clearly it's dip dyed lilac and pink andddddd it's studded. LOVEEEEE; I stumbled across it through the Old Blue tumblr where Lauren is selling a few of these jumpers in all different styles for just £25- it's definitely my favourite item in my wardrobe at the moment!!

Moved into my house in Bristol this weekend, it's amazing- it's got so much character, we found an old safe built into the wall would love to know what was kept in it, oh and I have the biggest room ever!! Yay. Only 4 weeks until I officially move in properly I cannot wait; I've missed living in Bristol so much this year.

PS all of you buying the disco pants dupes from Ark Clothing and Glamorous and the disco shorts from Topshop I am so jealous... money tree pleaseeeeeee!!

Deer Hunter

tee: sobeys vintage at bs8, riding pants: american apparel, creepers: runway shoes, necklace: street princess

Officially the busiest week of my life, my replacement has started which means I've been spending my days training her to do my job- I never realised how much I do! I'm also unofficially moving into my house in Bristol this weekend, the tenancy starts tomorrow so after work on Friday I'm going down to move half of my stuff and obviously get drunk, soo excited- it's Hospitality at Motion and even though I saw most of the DJs at beach break I'm not one to turn down Camo and Krooked... ever.

Some of you may have seen on my instagram (yasminnjade) that I popped into Bristol the other week for a spot of retail therapy where I picked up this tee from BS8. BS8 is my fav shop in Bristol it's on Park Street so it's a bit of a walk but definitely worth it. It's split into different sections for all different brands and combines a mixture of vintage, retro and high street clothing mixed in with some amazing jewellery and quirky household items.

I've been meaning to take pictures of my riding pants for ages- I picked them up in the 40% off all winter lines sale on the American Apparel site so they were cheap as chips and I love them, so glad I went for the green too. Also I bought this necklace from Naheeda's jewellery range so long ago and haven't had a chance to blog about it, it's so cute and really similar to one I had before which my friend borrowed and lost aha, but it's OK as I totally destroyed her HH suspender tights on a night out so we're even!! Check out Naheeda's store- Street Princess for more gorgeous pieces of jewellery.

So Glamorous

shirt: c/o glamorous, boots: topshop, belt: vintage, necklace: primark

Ah the lighting in these pictures is not great- did not see that cheeky bit of sun shining on my head! I wore this outfit to a friends 21st the other weekend, it was a house party which of course got fairly crazy everyone got far too drunk and no one slept till gone 6am... but it was such a good night even if the day after wasn't!! 
I received this shirt from Glamorous a few a weeks ago and had been dying to wear it - it was sold out in a size 8 so I bought the 10 which means it's really oversized but I wanted a shirt I could wear as a dress (almost), believe it or not I am wearing shorts under it so I didn't go out too naked. I never usually pick things in this colour as it washes me out but hey it's summer and I'm determined to embrace the pastel trend regardless!! I really love the clothes on the Glamorous site everything is so reasonably priced, their store is continuously getting updated and they have clothes for literally every occasion.
Ohh, I picked up these boots in the Topshop sale in Bristol last weekend when I was indulging in some serious retail therapy to cheer me up; they were down from £60 something to like £40 and are so cute, they have a little chunky heel and are cut out at the sides- I'll take a better picture of them next time to show them off better :)
