Boho Chick

I love love love a boho chick look for summer! 

I am still trying to come to terms with the fact that I bought these AMAZING boho trousers from Primark of all places! Not that I have anything against Primark clothing by the way, its just that they look so much more expensive and high street than that! The elasticated waist band makes them super comfortable and the flared and light material literally makes me feel like I’m walking around wearing nothing in the intense heat of morocco! I love the Aztec-looking design on the side panels as it adds a bit of a nomad, tribal edge to them. These are quite high waisted although they may be less so if you’re on the shorter side, height wise. Even so, crop tops or off the shoulder tops (which I’m addicted to at the moment!) work so well with these!

I’ll be stocking up on a few more pairs of these boho badboys when I return to England after my lovely stay here in Morocco,  Although I have a funny feeling they’re going to sell out soon! Also, how amazing is my headband? Also from Primark for an absolute steel at 1.50! Super stretchy and comfortable and perfect for keeping my unruly main at bay in this 40 degree heat!

Back to Black

You know how the saying goes, when in Rome? Well, when in Morocco…

Surprisingly, djellaba`s- a traditional garment worn commonly throughout Morocco- are actually a lot more comfortable and breezy then you would expect! I picked up this gorgeous black number from one of the hundreds of souks dotted all around Marrakech for just under a tenner! I love the intricate gold detail at the waist and I am a sucker for anything black as it is simple, elegant and classy. I would love to cut this open at the front and wear it as a sort of long kaftan but I’m too scared to do anything to it incase I ruin it! You can find so many designs and colors of djellaba`s all around morocco (and the middle east for that matter) but if you’re not going anywhere near there for quite some time and you fancy yourself a djellaba or two, take a look on eBay. You can find some really good quality ones for a very decent price although you may have to buy from abroad.

Oh and by the way, I am a firm believer that clothes can and should be used as a way of expressing your inner artist or creativity and just because certain items of clothing may be attached to certain backgrounds, religions or countries, who says you can’t embrace and style them out with your own personal touch?! And remember ladies, sexy doesn’t always have to mean flashing the flesh, this outfit is a perfect example!

So New Look just upped its summer outfit game!!

Whilst out and about picking up a few groceries this weekend, I decided to pop into my local New Look to see if I could find something I could quickly throw on as I had (yet again) dressed completely inappropriately for the weather and had worked up quite the sweat! This cute little floral number was practically calling out to me as I browsed through their summer collection and was the bargain price of £20!! Twenty bleeding pounds! I’m a huge fan of off-the-shoulder dresses and tops (incase you hadn’t already noticed!) their so feminine and just perfect for summer.

As the material is pretty loose, I would pick up a dress size or two smaller than your normal size, I’m a size 8-10 generally but had to pick up a 6 in this number to get a bit more of a fitted look.

You can thank me later!

A late valentines day

So, Valentines day has been and gone and surprisingly, this year I didnt find myself crying into a half-eaten tub of ice cream whilst trolling the Instagram pages of loved-up couples. 

Instead, I was pleasantly surprised by my very thoughtful boyfriend who’d bought me the cutest selection of gifts. I’m not really what you would call the ‘romantic’ type and generally cringe at all things girly/matters of the heart-related. But even I let out a little ‘awww’ when he presented them to me. 

Awwwwww

This beautiful light-weight coat was one of my favourite things amongst the goodies. I had spotted it a few weeks before whilst browsing Topshop’s new season collection and the feminine colour just jumped right out at me. I am constantly trying to bring a bit of colour to my wardrobe as I know i’m terrible for rocking a collection of all-black outfits on a regular basis. 

As the weather here is still tripping between ‘Game of thrones deathly cold’ and ‘Indian Summers’ I haven’t had a chance to wear it much but I’m sure if you follow my Instagram you’ll soon see me wearing it until it’s practically submerged into my skin.
