Studs Denim and Autumn Flowers

Denim Jacket-Charity shop, Necklace and Boots-New Look, Dress-Ebay originally Topshop

I bought this denim jacket last year in a charity shop and have only worn it a handful of times! I had some leftover studs which I put on to give it new life one would say, now I am obsessed with it. 
However I wish I had done this earlier in the summer because now as I am very cold blooded I can feel the autumn chill sneaking in. 
A denim jacket is such a versatile piece of clothing as it can be thrown over mostly anything, and the studs just give it that extra edge!
I have attempted a new way of spicing up my photographs, what do you think?

Autumn Flowers

Top and leggings-Topshop, Necklace and Boots-New Look, Lipstick No7

I think these leggings are perfect for a transition from summer to autumn because they are quite dark and not as in your face as some leggings! These boots are an absolute bargain, I have been looking round for some edgy studded, buckled boots and found some in Topshop for £85 but couldn't justify spending that much money! So yesterday before work I had a cheeky look in New Look and found these beauties which were only £27.99!!! Absolute bargain! And I love them! I think they are a definite staple for the A/W because when it gets colder I can put thick socks on to keep my tootsies warm!

I am so jealous of everyone who has been to a festival year! I vowed last year after Sonisphere that I would not do another because I have also been to Reading festival twice as well as Sonisphere! However I may have to go back on my word and do another one next year! Im thinking Download if the line up is as good as this year! I just love the atmosphere and the only worry being if you are going to see your favourite band in time.

If you have been to one I hope you had a wicked time!!

Topshop Heart Print Trousers

One pair of trousers, two ways to wear them:
First Outfit:

 Top-Topshop, Creepers-Ebay

Second Outfit:

Necklace-Topshop, Jumper-H&M, Shoes-New Look

I saw Rachel from Cold Knees (Go check out her blog she has the best style, quirky but smart) and I fell in love with them. You can wear them many ways but these are just two ways I would wear them, one being casual and the other more dressed up. 
I thought putting a band tshirt with them will instantly make it more casual, printed trousers are very in for this A/W. The second outfit I would wear to dinner because I think the cropped jumper and spiked necklace smartens it up a little, obviously its not uberly smart but could swap the jumper for a shirt with an embellished collar.
Which way would you prefer to wear these trousers?

Bargain Topshop Jeans

Hat-Topshop, Top-Boyfriends old top, Belt-Charity Shop, Jeans-Charity shop (originally Topshop), Sandals-Primark

Since getting a job at Topshop I have been trying to find some bargain Jeans on ebay because you are meant to wear the brand. I came across these jeans which are my exact size in a charity shop! To make things even better they were only £2.49!!!!! I also cut this Iron Maiden top shorter to make into a crop top which I really like because it shows off the belt.

Bargain Belt

Vest-Topshop, Jeans-River Island-Belt-Charity Shop, Sandals-Primark

Yesterday I did my second ever window for Oxfam (window dressing). Amongst the clothes I was picking out I found this amazing belt which was only £2.49, it is real leather and everything I was so chuffed! I then went to meet some friends afterwards for lunch so decided to pop the belt on! Accessories can really make or break an outfit, I feel the belt has made this outfit haha.

Body Jewellery

Shirt-Ebay, Vest, Body Jewellery and Jeans-Topshop,

The flowery shirt has made yet another appearance, I just love it so much! I rediscovered my body jewellery which my house mates at Uni bought me for my birthday! I never knew what to wear it with but it can be worn as you would wear a normal necklace, well that is how I am treating it haha.

Polka Dot Dress and Spikes

Polka dot dress and necklace-Topshop, Belt-New Look, Socks-Topshop, Boots-Local shoe shop

This is the perfect dress to throw on in a rush because it can be dressed up or down with different accessories. I also wore this with a denim shirt thrown over to make it more casual.

Topshop Heart Dress

Dress and Socks-Topshop, Boots-Local shoe shop

Sooo recently I got a job in Topshop wooo!! And for uniform you are meant to wear mainly Topshop I believe, so I thought what better way to start my first shift is with this amazing heart dress which I originally bought and wore for my graduation. I have made it slightly more casual with some frilly socks and pixie boots! My first shift is on Sunday which I am uber excited about. And yes I have really keenly planned my first outfit haha!

Flatforms For The Day?

Necklace, Vest, Jeans-Topshop, Flatforsms-ASOS

I am quite tall so never wear any shoe with a heel during the day time, but I may have to break this rule so I can wear my flatforms from ASOS! They aren't the most comfortable of shoes but I still love them. The shoes have quite a lot going on so I kept the rest of the outfit pretty simple!

Sophisticated Blazer Fun

Blazer-Charity Shop, Vest-Topshop, Necklace-H&M, Jeans-Criminal Damage, Sandals-Dorothy Perkins

I bought this blazer last year and since then have never worn it, I thought maybe the shape of it is a bit odd for me! But I love it with this outfit because it makes me feel sophisticated haha. The pop of colour from the sandals makes it look less dark (if you get what I mean) which I love because I do enjoy bright colours at times.

Cute Skulls?

Shirt-Charity Shop, Necklace-Miss Selfridge, Jeans-Criminal Damage, Creepers-New Look

I went to the cinema to see Ted which was really funny and laughed for most of it, however I am wishing that  I had seen Batman!
 This is just what I wore for it because these jeans are quite comfy and are suitable to sit down in for 2 hours. This skull necklace is from Miss Selfridge! I was extremely pleased when I saw it and to make everything even more amazing it was only £1!!!!! I think the skulls are really cute because they are so small and dainty!
