Cute Outfits And New Purchases.

Cute Outfits And New Purchases.

Hello my loves, I hope you’re having a fabulous July so far! This month I finally got my last few assignments signed off for my level 4 in digital marketing which I’ve been looking forward to for what feels like the longest time. And now that my college work is all finished, I’ve got something new to look forward to – a trip away at the beginning of August! So, to prep for my little trip away next month I started having a think about all of the cute outfits I could bring along with me; which brings me to today post, some of my current favourite outfits and new purchases!

Over the last year and a half I’ve expanded my wardrobe and style so so much and that’s because I finally found the most essential item you need in your wardrobe..

CONFIDENCE!!

It sounds cheesy I know, but it’s true, having confidence and feeling great makes anything look good. Just over a year ago I was so self-conscious about how I looked and continually put my body down, and since then I’ve been on a huge self-love journey and I’m happy to say that 9 days out of 10 I have a good body love day, and on the day that I’m not feeling as great about my body as usual, I still accept my body and thank it for what it does for me.

So, now that you know that confidence is the best item in your wardrobe, here’s some cute outfits that I love to wear that I wouldn’t dream of wearing before! A lot of my favourite crop tops are from Shein because your girl is on a budget, but I’ve also got some really cute trousers and other pieces from sustainable brands like Lucy and Yak.

(Just an FYI – I’m not sponsored by any of the brands mentioned in this post but I’ve included the links to each item so you can find them easily if you wanted to get yourself any of the pieces below!)

First up we’ve got some super cute crop tops from Shein. The first four pictured are a similar shape which I found comfy and surprisingly supportive for bigger chested people (I’m an E cup for reference in case you’re wanting to pick any of these tops up) and then the two gingham tops are backless – strappy back tops which are very supportive because you can adjust the straps as you wish.

Next up we’ve got some more crop tops from Shein and two from Pretty Little Thing, the first four are Shein and the last two are Pretty Little Thing. The Shein ones are just super comfy and crop tops paired with comfy high waisted jeans and trousers are now an everyday go-to for me, and the other two are super cute for dressing up or down. I especially love the blue and white corset top because it looks so nice tucked into my jeans and gives you a really nice shape whilst still being super comfy to wear so it’s great for going out to drinks and dinner because it’s still comfy after you’ve eaten!

You know when you love a print so much that you want everything in it? Yeah, that’s how I felt when I saw this green spongebob-esk print so naturally I got it in 3 different tops! Each one is so cute and makes me feel fab everytime I wear them. (These are also Shein!).

Onto dresses! If you know me well, you know I’m not really a dress kind of gal, mainly because I always feel like I’m going to flash everyone and I struggle to find ones that I like on me due to being petite (length is usually an issue), but after buying these on a whim to continue getting out of my comfort zone I found that the different shapes and lengths these dresses are look great on! The first two are Shein and the last one is Pretty Little Thing. My personal favourite out of these three is the second one because it’s extremely supportive for big chests and is fitted in all the right places, oh and it’s lined!!

Next up we’ve got my collection of gorgeous trousers and dungarees from Lucy and Yak! They are one of my all time favourite clothing brands because not only do all their clothes fit and feel super comfortable, they’re also a smaller business who are all about sustainable clothing! And do I even need to mention how beautiful their prints are?!? And also if you were wondering, the blue mom jeans featured in my other outfits are also from Lucy and Yak and they are the comfiest best fitting jeans I’ve every bought – they’re actually high waisted rather than high rise so they sit at just the right place. The clothes are a bit pricier than other brands but 1000% worth it in my mind!

Finally we’ve got some cycle shorts and tee’s combos! I always though I couldn’t pull off the cute bike shorts and tee combos, but after debating it I bought some and now I’ve managed to gather a collection of around 8 pairs of cute patterned/coloured shorts with tee’s that look really cute with them (they’re currently in the wash but I’ve got a blue gingham pair, lilac gingham pair, black and white checked pair, pink pair, two black pairs and the two shown below). My personal favourite of these is the green gingham outfit because it’s just so cute! All of my cycle short outfits make me feel so badass and as a bonus they’re incredibly comfy!! Plus these are perfect for these really hot days where you just want to be comfy. And plus plus, you don’t get chub rub with cycle shorts!! (The Bambi tee is H&M, the green gingham shorts and cherry shorts are Asos and the Coca Cola tee is Primark!).

And that’s all of my cute outfits that I’ve got to show you for today! Maybe in a future post I’ll give you a rundown of all the cute outfits I decide to take with me on my upcoming trip away so you can see how I plan on packing for a week away in the UK during Summer (I’m pretty much 100% sure I’ll be over-packing so it’ll be interesting to see if I can keep my packing light!).

What’s your favourite piece or outfit from today’s post? Let me know in the comments below!

And remember, it doesn’t really matter what you’re wearing as long as you feel good. Your opinion about yourself is what matters, so go out, treat the world as your runway and wear what makes you feel good.

Have a fab day my lovelies!

Love,

Trying Out Different Style Aesthetics.

Trying Out Different Style Aesthetics.

Hello my lovelies!! So over the last few months I’ve been trying out different fashion styles to see which ones I like the most; and I decided to start off with two of my favourite styles – light and dark academia! I also decided to try out e-girl fashion and then some cute tops I wouldn’t normally have ordered myself!

To give you an idea of all of the styles I like and look forward to trying, you can check out my pinterest board below!

First up I’ve been putting together some cute outfits based on light and dark academia! The academia style is all about layering, check and dogstooth patterns, cardigans, turtlenecks, jumpers and that sort of old English school fashion. For dark academia I used dark, slightly preppy pieces, including a cute black a-line skirt, dark green cardigan, dark pleated skirt, turtlenecks, dark jumpers and checked trousers. For light academia I used lighter clothes, still lots of turtlenecks, some pleated skirts and light check trousers.

Here’s a brief overview of some pieces you might see in dark and light academia outfits:

Here’s some of the dark academia outfits I came up with with what I had in my wardrobe!

And here are some light academia outfits I came up with!

Along with trying out the different academia aesthetics, I also ordered a few pieces to try out an e-girl look!

For this I picked out a black graphic tee, my a-line skirt with a slit, black tights and fishnets, chunky black boots, a striped turtleneck and some chains!

I’ve also been trying out some more colours that I wouldn’t usually gravitate towards, because I recently dyed my hair a pinky colour which made me want to try out some new colours that would compliment my hair nicely!

After trying out these different styles, I have found a major love for both of the academia aesthetics. They made me feel like I should be in some romantic magical land with beautiful libraries and buildings, and I one hundred percent felt smarter wearing these outfits. Plus, this aesthetic is great for the colder weather because it typically has a lot of layering involved! And this helped me find my love for turtlenecks once again!

I also really enjoyed the e-girl aesthetic, it made me feel powerful and like I was a badass! It definitely wasn’t as cosy as the academia aesthetics for me but was still super cute. I’m not sure it’s a style that I’ll fully adopt into my wardrobe more than I have for this try-on, but I know I’ll certainly wear aspects of it now and again. One thing I’m for sure going to start wearing more of is the colour green because I really like how it looks against my skin tone and my new hair!

Trying out these different aesthetics has absolutely made me want to try more styles out in the future; I love the look of cottage core and soft girls so I may well try those ones out next!

What aesthetics would you like to see me try next? Let me know in the comments!

Have a great weekend my lovelies!

Month 1 Of Project 333.

Month 1 Of Project 333.

Happy Saturday my lovelies! We’re in August! And it feels like the world is slowly going back to normal at last. Over the last month I’ve been trying to be more conscious about my environmental footprint, in particular my fast fashion waste. So, at the beginning of July I started project 333.

Project 333 is a minimalist sort of challenge which involves having 33 items in your wardrobe including clothes, shoes, jewellery and bags and you’re only allowed to wear those items for the next 3 months. The project is supposed to help you minimize your wardrobe, reduce the stress of getting dressed in the morning and help reduce fast fashion waste. Now, because I love fashion so much, I decided to take on this project but only with clothes and shoes, I love earrings too much to count those in my 33!

Since it’s already been a month doing project 333, I thought I’d share some of my outfits that I wore this month!

And those are just a few of my outfits I’ve worn over the last month!

I won’t lie to you, I did end up with one or two new items. But you know what? I’m human! And that’s ok. The 4 new items I got were two tops I forgot I ordered about a month before the beginning of the project that ended up coming from abroad about 3 weeks in and then a pair of super cool patterned leggings from a small business that I had been wanting for ages that finally came back in stock and then a coca cola t-shirt that I simply couldn’t pass up. And as someone who used to buy way over 4 new items a month, that’s pretty darn good if I say so myself.

What was week 1 like?

For the first week I immediately felt stress free when it came to getting dressed in the morning, and I was super excited when choosing what I wanted to wear for the day because I liked everything in my wardrobe! Every outfit I put on was comfy and I actually felt more productive when working from home because I was dressed nicely!

Week 2?

Month1 Project 333

I was still enjoying the project during week 2, and I continued to wear loads of outfits I loved and hadn’t thought to put together before! It was this week where I ordered the cute leggings (from Lucy and Yak if you’re wondering!) you can see above! This week I started wearing shoes I wouldn’t have normally paired with certain outfits before and found that I loved these new looks!

Week 3 thoughts?

By week 3 I was still enjoying wear my wardrobe, but there were one or two items I noticed I wasn’t wearing for some reason. I tried switching a few things up and wore one of the items but found I wasn’t as comfortable so decided that I would switch out those items at the end of month 1 if I still wasn’t wearing them. I was also given a dress that was my grannies so I wore that to a family bbq! It was free so I don’t count that as breaking my challenge! I did break my shoe rule by wearing a brown pair of boots I didn’t plan on wearing for the project but it looked cute and it was only twice because they were comfy for walking.

The end of month 1?

I still like pretty much everything in my wardrobe, it’s just the one or two items that I haven’t worn that I’ll probably switch out soon, and that’s only a few items. After a month, I’ve realised that I don’t actually miss my old wardrobe that much, and I’ve only thought about one pair of trousers and a skirt from it this entire month. And since I’m possibly switching out one or two items, I might just add them in.

So, what have I learnt so far?

You can make a hell of a lot of outfits from just 33 items!! And as long as you pick out pieces that are versatile that you love, you can’t go wrong! After a while things can become a little stagnant if you don’t think of creative ways to wear your clothes, so remember to think differently when picking out your look for the day! Also, don’t beat yourself up if you do buy something new and forget you’ve set yourself a 33 limit!

I can’t wait to see what the next month will bring in the form of outfits! What’s your favourite outfit from this month? Let me know in the comments below!

Have a great weekend my lovelies!

My Project 333 Wardrobe.

My Project 333 Wardrobe.

Happy Saturday my lovelies! So, this week I’ve been taking a look at my clothes and my shopping habits. I’ve noticed that during lockdown I haven’t bought nearly as many clothes as I did before lockdown and the clothes I did buy were of a much higher quality from brands who have ideals I stand by. I’ve also found that I have a pattern with how I shop; and that pattern is, the second payday hits, I like to go and treat myself to something new to wear. The problem is, I don’t need any more clothes.

And I literally just bought a £65 jumpsuit from Asos that I simply just had to have because it was a bold black and white floral pattern. When it arrived yesterday I realised what I was doing and lucky for me it was way too long on my little legs so it’s being sent back for a refund – bad shopping habit 0 – Victoria 1.

So, as much as I love fashion and shopping, I need to change my shopping habits, not only for the sake of my bank balance, or my lack of space to put more clothes, but also for the environment. Granted the majority of clothes I decide I no longer want are donated to charity rather than just thrown away, but the amount of clothes that were worn once and then donated is much too high for my liking.

And this is where project 333 comes in. Project 333 is a bit like a wardrobe challenge, with the idea being that you only have 33 items in your wardrobe, including your clothes, shoes, accessories and bags; and you are only allowed to wear your selected 33 items for 3 months. The project was created by Courtney Carver who is a minimalist expert and author, with the aim of taking the stress out of deciding what to wear in the morning.

I personally don’t find getting dressed in the morning too stressful, because choosing my look for the day brings me joy, but there are still way too many items in my wardrobe which don’t get worn as often as they should. ( Or they simply shouldn’t have been bought in the first place).

Now, because I’m still a big lover of fashion and I love accessorising every single outfit I put on depending on my mood for the day, I know there’s no way I am going to be able to have 33 pieces in total including my accessories and bags, so for me, I’m going to do this project with just my clothes and shoes. Baby steps..

To give you an idea of what my wardrobe looked like before I decided on my 33 items, here’s what everything looked like when I decided to try this out and what my wardrobe looked like during the clearing out process:

For the record, none of the clothes are being thrown away, I’ve vacuum sealed them away in my loft because after 3 months I’ll swap some items out. And although my clothes rack before looked fine, I know that it was struggling to keep the weight of all those clothes up.

So, now that I’ve cleaned out my wardrobe, what 33 items are in my wardrobe for the next 3 months?

Well, my selection consists of 12 tops, 2 jumpers, 1 skort, 1 pair of shorts, 1 denim skirt, 3 pairs of mom jeans, 1 pair of checked trousers,1 pair of pink cargo joggers, 2 dresses, 2 pairs of dungarees, a leather jacket, a pair of black boots, white birkenstocks, black flats and white converse.

Here’s the tops I’ve chosen:

Here’s the bottoms I’ve picked (I’ve got two pairs of blue mom jeans so I only took a photo of one pair):

Then we have my 2 dresses, 2 pairs of dungarees and jacket:

In deciding on what to have in my 333 wardrobe I went with pieces that could make several outfits to make sure that I don’t get bored with my choices. So, here’s a few simple outfits I can make with the very basics of the wardrobe:

You’ll probably recognise a few of these outfits from my post from a few weeks ago, as they also gave me a lot of inspiration for these looks. I tried to make sure I picked pieces that made me feel good but were also comfortable and practical so the entire wardrobe could be pretty versatile for all occasions. And as for my shoes, I figured going simple would be the best option for me, one pair perfect for hot days, one casual pair for going out and about (not that we’re going anywhere haha, one pair for when it’s chilly and one pair that is a little more smart casual.

I think something I’m looking forward to with this challenge is being forced to look at my wardrobe and the clothes I own in a new way, and finding new and exciting ways to wear pieces that would have gotten lost in the mountain of clothes I had in my wardrobe before. Along with that, I can’t help but think of all the moments I’m going to have to catch myself before I buy anything new, so that will be an interesting challenge with a good outcome if I can stick to the project. My bank balance will certainly thank me!

At the end of each month I’ll give you an update on how things are progressing and going, and I think I’ll try and keep a weekly diary of outfits and how my now much smaller wardrobe is making me feel. Just looking at it now, it looks so incredibly empty compared to how it was before. After all, going from what must’ve been over 100 pieces to just 26 items of clothing and 4 pairs of shoes seems kind of insane, but it’s also quite freeing and calming. That corner of my rooms certainly seems a bit brighter which is nice.

Plus, if this works I can forget about over-packing for holidays! I’ll just take my entire wardrobe haha.

Hopefully this project will bring with it an even greater appreciation for the select items I’ve got and which ones I truly love to wear.

And with all that said and done, what do you think of my new wardrobe? Have you tried this challenge before? How did it go? Let me know in the comments! Wish me luck and have a great weekend my lovelies!

My Favourite Outfits.

My Favourite Outfits.

Hello my lovelies! I hope you’ve been finding some time to relax and look after yourselves this week. This week I’m starting off today’s post a bit differently to how I normally would; and that’s because there are some important things that need to be said before we continue with my usual positive post for the week.

As we all know, protests are going on across the globe as police brutality and racism against the black community has not stopped and we as human beings need to actively be anti-racist. Too many lives have been taken and continue to be taken because of the colour of someone’s skin. Enough is enough. We cannot stand here and accept this. We will not.

I CAN'T BREATHE
Say their names. #BlackLivesMatter

To all of the black community:

I am not black, but I see you.

I am not black, but I hear you.

I am not black, but I mourn with you.

I am not black, but I will fight for you.

#BlackLivesMatter

I have white privilege, and that means that I cannot begin to understand the fear and pain the black community must go through every single day. Having white privilege also means that I can use my platform and privilege to help stop these injustices that are happening everyday.

If you can please go to blacklivesmatter.com and find out about your local peaceful protests and how you can do your part by donating to BlackLivesMatter, to bail funds, to Stand Up Against Racism, sign as many petitions as you can and educate yourself on your privilege and ensure that we are all more than just not being racist. We must be anti-racist.

Together we will have justice. If you’re going to protests please stay safe, here are some resources you can use to stay safe and support what is right. And to anyone who will say ‘All lives matter’ to this, yes, you’re right, all lives matter, and THAT is why black lives matter. You don’t truly believe that all lives matter until you are standing up for black lives, saying all lives matter right now is taking away from the voices who need to be heard, the black lives that need our help. And if you still don’t understand, watch this video which explains it perfectly:

I’m doing my part to stop the brutality that black people go through on a daily basis and I hope you will too.


Naturally because of everything that is going on at the moment we need to find time to look after ourselves. We must continue to fight and in order to do so, please look after yourselves, even if that’s just by making sure you’re carrying milk and water with you to protests and wearing your masks.

These times are hard and it can be hard to find a smile with everything going on (understandably and rightly so). So something I’ve been doing is wearing outfits that make me smile. And so, to hopefully give you at least five minutes of positivity today I’m going to be sharing them with you!

First up we’ve got some cute mom jean shorts with a black tee! I paired these with these amazing alien earrings and tiny black sunglasses which are just a complete vibe and I love them!

Next up we have this adorable check smock dress that I picked up from Tesco and it is just so comfy and I love that kind of grungy look you get when you pair a cute dress with black boots. Plus, since this is a smock dress, it’s super flown and perfect for those hotter days!

We’ve then got this button down cardigan paired with mom jeans I picked up from Tesco (F&F jeans are the best jeans and no one can convince me otherwise!) and some zebra print slip ons with rainbow heart hoops! I wasn’t sure how I wanted to wear this cardi at first but it’s so versatile that it goes with nearly everything! I chose to wear this cardigan by itself without a bra or top underneath because for one, it’s hot at the moment, and two – because why not!

Here’s that cute cardigan again, but this time I’ve put it with these incredible trousers I got from ASOS!

These trousers are so comfy because they’re high waisted, have little buckles on each side and on the ankles so you can adjust them and they are just plain (or rather not plain haha) adorable! And I think putting these with a simple black turtle neck (also ASOS) is such a cute look. I decided to accessories with black books for a grunge look and had to put my super cute iced coffee earrings with it to tie it all together! It’s one of my favourite looks of all, I just wish it was a little colder so I can wear it without overheating!

Next up is my cute all pink outfit. The variety in my style always makes me laugh, one second I can be seen in a super smart look, the next a grungy one, then super intimidating and then super soft. It all depends on my mood for the day. And this outfit is what I like to gravitate towards on those days where I want to wear pink and be all stereotypically cutesy! So, here I’ve got these baby pink cargo joggers with a checked pink crop top; and sometimes I like to add a white tee that I’ve cropped myself and add a white beanie to top it all off.

Here’s a smart, feminine and classy look that I love so much. Especially when I add the slim black sunglasses. Black mom jeans are comfy, look smart and are warm for those breezy days. I picked up the cardigan from ASOS (like a lot of these haha not sponsored, but it could be – ASOS.. I doubt you’re reading this but if you are, feel free to hit me up!) which has a nice 90’s vibe because of the black tiny ruffle trim which is cute by itself or open with a cute crop top and then I decided on these black flats that I’ve had for way over 5 years but have hardly ever worn, and I don’t know why I haven’t because they’re so unique and class up any outfit!

Last but certainly not least, we have one of my all time favourite looks. It’s certainly not cold enough for this outfit but I love it so much I had to include it. Here we’ve got an oversized grey SuperDry jumper with a black skort and black tights and boots. Oh, and of course I had to have the statement black sunnies make an appearance too. This look makes me feel so cute and I cant help but have happy vibes when I wear it. Plus, can we just appreciate how absolutely adorable this skort is!

And those are my favourite outfits! My style really does depend on how I’m feeling and what I want my mood for the day to be. If I’m feeling artsy and it’s chilly I’ll probably go for something like the tartan trousers, and if I’m feeling like I want to be effortless then I might go for the black mom jeans – cream cardi combo and if I’m feeling like I want to be cutesy then I might wear any of my dungarees or my pink cargo joggers.

Basically I wear what I want, when I want. And the motto I stand by when it comes to getting dressed and style is that you should wear what makes you happy, feel beautiful, confident and like you.

Love who you are and embrace yourself. Anything you wear will look good if you feel good.

Well, that’s it from me for today! What are your favourite outfits? How would you describe your style? Mines definitely eclectic! Let me know yours in the comments or tag me in your looks on insta @theweightofmyworlds!

Stay safe out there and love yourself.

Love,

My Favourite Fun Outfits.

My Favourite Fun Outfits.

Hello my lovelies! How’s everyone’s quarantine going? For me, I’m at the end of week 3 because my mum came down with what we believe to be the virus since she had all of the symptoms! I know a lot of people are really struggling at the moment with being bored at home, and most of us are staying in our pyjamas every single day and forgetting about all of the cool fun things we have in our wardrobes! Well I have personally decided that I will not be wearing pyjamas every single day (maybe only 2-3 days a week).

Because working from home can feel a little boring at times and lonely, I have decided to bring more fun into getting ready to go those 4 steps from my bed to my desk in the morning, by wearing cute fun outfits I absolutely adore!

And with that, let’s get into my favourite fun outfits!

Outfit number 1 : My Lucy and Yak dungarees with my embroidered converse and some super cute fruit earrings! Sunglasses optional 😉

These dungarees are so bright and you can’t help but smile when you’re wearing them. This outfit is perfect for those duller rainy days when all you want to do is fast forward to when this is all over.

Outfit number 2 : All black everything and glitter boots!

This outfit is essentially the embodiment of one of my favourite quotes

Every cloud has a silver lining

– I think Stuart Little is where I remember first hearing this, and it just stuck with me!

This all black outfit is great for those days when you really can’t be bothered to think about your look, but still want to have that pop of fun, which is what these boots were made for! I tend to pair this with a beanie to keep me warm whilst I’m sat on my laptop all day, cosy and cute!

Outfit number 3 : Super cute dungarees from Run and Fly!

These are my favourite thing in my wardrobe right now, they are so much fun, are so comfy and make me feel incredible! Plus they’re made from a small uk business?! Paired with these lilac boots from asos (got these in the sale with the glitter boots for around £40 in total – bargain!) or my cute Dr Martens (£15 from someone on Facebook practically brand new?!) I feel like this outfit is so so me, and I’m completely here for it.

Outfit number 4 : More dungarees from the lovely Run and Fly!

Of course I couldn’t let you forget about these adorable dungarees that you saw last week! In case you couldn’t tell, I’m totally going through a dungaree moment right now. They are so comfy and for those days when it’s hard getting out of your pj’s, why not just put on an adorable pair of dungarees which are essentially onesies that are acceptable to wear out in public?

Outfit number 5 : Soft girl cargo pants and beanie vibes.

It’s amazing what vibes different outfits can give off. We’ve just gone from bubbly carefree, to slightly more e-girl esc to cute, to nature gal vibes all the way to soft-girl vibes. All because of a change in colour palette. These cargo jogger pant things are super comfy and because they’re high waisted they feel like pyjama bottoms, a big win from me! I paired these with a cute crop tee and my baby pink beanie for that soft cutsey vibe, perfect for when you’re sat there just chilling out.

Outfit number 6 : Vintage shirts and mom jeans.

I think most of us must have at least one shirt in their wardrobe that they don’t wear too often. For me, I wear my black and white shirt more than I do my bright one, because sometimes I struggle for outfit inspiration, but now is the perfect time to try ideas out! I like wearing these with leggings like oversized shirt dresses because they’re pretty long or I tuck them into mom jeans with a long sleeve top underneath because it’s still chilly in Cambridgeshire right now.

I always like to think about the positive sides to every single situation; so even though we’re stuck inside at the moment which isn’t ideal, lets use this time we have to experiment with our style more! You never know, you might just find a new favourite outfit out of it!

And at the very least, you’ll have more fun. (And all of those zoom meetings can be a bit more entertaining showing off your looks!)

Also if you’re a makeup lover whose got stuck in a bit of a routine look rut, don’t be afraid of mixing up your makeup! At the end of the day, when else are you going to have all of this time to work out what you like to wear and what makes you feel your best and most confident version of yourself.

What’s your favourite outfit that puts a smile on your face? Let me know in the comments or tag me in your instagram posts @theweightofmyworlds so I can follow you and hype you up!

And with all of that said and done, I’ll leave you with this:

Never underestimate the power of a good outfit on a bad day.

Have a great weekend my lovelies and please stay safe! We’re all in this together and will get through this!

Lots of love,

Styling Mom Jeans.

Styling Mom Jeans.

Hello and Happy New Year my lovelies!! Can you believe we’re in another decade again?! Where has the time gone! Speaking of decades, it always amazes me how fashion from previous decades manages to come round again and again. One particular piece of fashion I love is mom jeans.

In my opinion they look great on all shapes and sizes and can be pretty versatile too. Which is why today I decided to show you how I like to style mom jeans!

So, onto the outfits!

Mom Jeans Outfit

1 . Date night! You can’t go wrong pairing any jeans with a pair of heels and a blazer, it’s the perfect way to dress up any outfit from day to night. And in my opinion it’s always a classy sophisticated look!

I love how this outfit can be dressed down by pairing everything with tanned loafers or flats of any colours and a bag!

Mom Jeans Outfit

2 . Smart Casual. I love this outfit for everyday wear, you can’t see them too well in my snaps by I’ve paired this floral top with pink slip ons to go with my bag. It feels very much like a Spring outfit to me, but to be honest, I wear this all year round with layers in the cold seasons!

Mom Jeans Outfit

Plus, who doesn’t love a good floral number and cute comfy shoes?!

Mom Jeans Outfit

3 . Comfy Cosy Casual. This outfit is perfect for a cinema date or just going out for the day. A cosy jumper and jeans combo is a staple you just have to have in you wardrobe for the cooler days and months. I personally like to accessorise this simple outfit with bold accessories to bring a bit of me to it!

Mom Jeans Outfit

I wish I had those Coca-Cola earrings and popcorn bag, but I have to admit, I do love my bubblegum machine earrings just as much!

Mom Jeans Outfit

4 . Classic and Simple. We’ve all got a simple white or black tee in our wardrobes somewhere, and even if we haven’t, you can get them super cheap in most clothes shops! I like pairing this with a simple cross-body bag and trainers or you can tie a tartan or checkered shirt around your waist to tie the look together!

Mom Jeans Outfit

Bonus points if you’ve got a huge oversized tartan shirt, those things can act as blankets when you got cold!

5 . Little Red Accents. What colour truly speaks date night other than bright red. Unfortunately I couldn’t find my red cami top to show you my look but I have got the outfit below for you to check out! This look is so chic and always looks effortless and sexy. Perfect for a date night or girls night!

Mom Jeans Outfit

And those are how I like to style mom jeans! I always feel good when I put an outfit together with these, and they are so comfy! It’s easy to just chuck on with a t-shirt with these and look chic, and will be a staple in my wardrobe for 2020 for sure!

How do you like to style mom jeans? And what’s your favourite look from these? Let me know in the comments!

Well, that’s all from me for today! See you next week lovelies! I hope you had a great start to the year so far!

Happy Saturday my lovelies! I hope you all had a very Happy Halloween! What/who did you dress up as? I was the mad hatter! I can’t believe we’re in November already! October just flew by, last month was crazy busy for me but with lots of fun packed in. Now, as you know, I love fashion and quirky style, so half way through October I went to a vintage wholesale fayre!

The vintage fayre I went to was by Worth The Weight Vintage who are a vintage wholesaler who host vintage fayre’s in a different city each weekend. The way the vintage fayre works is that you pay by weight instead of per item! The great thing is that items are capped at £15 for a heavy item, like a coat or jacket and you pay £15 per kilo of clothes you pick up!

So, what did I get from the vintage sale? Well, I found some pretty cool shirts, a head scarf and a jumper! But for today I’ll be showing you how I style my vintage shirts!

First up we’ve got a black and white shirt!

Black and White Shirt

I love this shirt, it’s a bold pattern that’s pretty in season right now, and it’s super comfy. I like pairing vintage shirts with mom jeans, a black belt and accessories that go with the aesthetic of the pattern on the shirt. Plus, I had to add in my telephone bag and boots because the vibe of the shirt just asked for it with this outfit!

Here it is paired with a leather jacket and bright slip ons and paired with a blazer!

Onto the next shirt!

I picked out this shirt because this too felt super in right now, I love the white with the more delicate design on the left hand side.

Sydney shirt

I feel like this is chic and can be dressed up of down to suite your needs whilst still having that cool vintage vibe.

Onto my third and most challenging but possibly my over all favourite shirt – this bright and very bold patterned one!

Bright Bold shirt

Here’s my favourite photos in this super cute outfit!

And that’s how I’m styling my vintage shirts! I love these shirts so much, and they cost hardly anything! As you know I love a bargain so I’ll definitely be looking into more vintage wholesalers, plus I’m into weird and wonderful unique pieces.

Some of these outfits might be a bit out there for some people, but I like standing out a little, and like I always say, you can wear whatever you want as long as you wear it with confidence. All that matters when you’re styling something is that you feel good in what you’ve put on, because like Roald Dahl says

If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

Basically, wear what you want and be nice to yourself because you’re amazing!

And that’s it from me for today! Which outfit did you like the most? And what vintage clothes or more out-there outfits do you like to wear? Let me know in the comments! I always love interacting with you so feel free to follow me on instagram (@theweightofmyworlds) too so I can see all of your lovely faces and interact with you on there!

Have a great weekend lovelies!

Autumn Date Outfits.

Autumn Date Outfits.

Hello my lovelies!! Happy Saturday and happy Autumn! I’m so glad that the colder weather is finally here and I can pull out all of my cosy blankets and jumpers. As you may be able to tell, I’m much more of a Autumn/Winter gal, so I haven’t actually got any Summer blues!

So, what have I got in store for you this week? Well, I thought I’d take you through some cute, comfy and warm date night outfits that I love for when we’re getting into the colder seasons. And I love that dates become a little more magical in these seasons, after all, we’re in spooky seasons and then it’s time for Christmas!

Yes. I just said Christmas. Haha I have no shame at all.

And with that, let’s get into it!

1 . The classic red dress.

Can you even go wrong with a red dress for a date? I don’t think so! I love how cute this looks with boots and knitted tights, all you’ve gotta do is pop on a warm coat and you’re good to go!

2 . The jeans and a nice top combo.

We all know what this one is. We all do it. And there’s a reason why we all do this one. It’s so easy to put together, it’s super comfy, and you can dress it up of down. I personally love the bright accessories with this one!

3 . Denim skirts are in!

It’s that time of the year where you get to pull our all of those layers you couldn’t wear in Summer and pair them with a cute denim skirt. I think this is a great look for when you’re off out for day date!

4 . Oversized knitwear.

You know me, I love love love oversized jumpers and tees, so it’s only natural that we have an oversized knitwear, tights and boots combo. And could this outfit scream Autumn anymore?! Warm and very comfy!

5 . Black and red.

The classic colours for date nights. This is my personal favourite for date night nearly all year round. I love a monochrome outfit with bright accents, particularly the prime colours, red, blue and yellow. And since it’s date night, why not the supposed colour of love?! (I know, even I’m cringing about that last comment haha!)

And that’s a few pretty date day and night outfits you can use for Autumn going into Winter! What’re some of your favourite things to wear on dates and days out with your other half? I think we’ve all got a few things we wear that are our staples, but it’s nice to mix it up every now and again!

So, that’s all folks! Let me know what you’re favourite outfits are in the comments below! No matter what you wear, as long as you feel good, you’ll look pretty damn good too! To check out some of my outfits and keep up to date with days out I go on, follow me on Insta @theweightofmyworlds!

Have a great weekend my lovelies!

City Break Holiday Packing.

City Break Holiday Packing.

Hello lovelies! How’s everyone doing today? This weekend is pretty exciting for me today because.. I’m off on holiday! I’ve not been away for a holiday for way over a year, maybe even two, so I can’t wait for this break from reality!

So, where am I off to you ask? Edinburgh! Why Edinburgh? Well, if I’m completely honest, I’m on a budget, but also Scotland is absolutely beautiful.

Which leads me to this post. It’s summer. It’s raining. It’s then a heatwave. Then its raining again. So, WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO PACK?!?

Well, I’ve been trying to decide what I want to bring with me for the last few weeks and I’ve finally come up with a packing list that has everything you’ll need for a Summer city break with unpredictable weather.

And since I am off to Scotland, the weather is probably going to be doing all sorts, which ultimately led me to the decision that layers and creating a capsule wardrobe are probably going to be good options. Plus I am a serial over-packer (and I love making lists) so streamlining what I’m packing is always a good idea.

Right, let’s get into it!

Here’s the sort of things I’m going to pack:

So, this is what I plan on bringing with me for 5 nights in Scotland! It may seem like a lot for 5 nights, but when you think about it, it’s nice having options for outfits; especially for me in particular because I always get dressed depending on my mood.

Here’s the run down of what I’ll pack:City Break Holiday Packing.

  • 4 x tops
  • 2 x jumpers
  • 1 x cardigan
  • 1 x day dress
  • 1 x pinafore dress
  • 1 x night dress
  • 1 x denim skirt
  • 2 x jeans
  • 1 x denim jacket
  • 1 x colourful jacket
  • 1 x heels
  • 2 x trainers
  • 1 x boots
  • Accessories
  • Oh.. and underwear and all that stuff. Nearly forgot about that!

I think it’s important to remember what you’re planning to do during the day’s and in the evenings because that’ll determine your looks and if you’d want to swap different pieces in and out. So.. onto a few of the different outfit combos you can create! I won’t show you them all, because we’ll be here a while!

Outfit idea

1 . Comfy and casual, you cant go wrong with a jumper, jeans and trainers!

Outfit idea

2 . Sunny day out, this look is great for when you’re off out shopping for the day, chilling out and you can even dress it up with heels for the evening!

Outfit idea

3 . Casual date night, I love this outfit! It’s great for all times of day, and I would pair this outfit with polka dot tights too, I think this outfit is great for cinema dates and going to places like the zoo.

Outfit idea

4 . Fancy date night, who doesn’t own a LBD?! (Little black dress) This is perfect for making you feel sexy, confident and it’s great for going out to dinner or drinks.

Outfit idea

5 . Day to night, this outfit and the one coming up are great examples of how accessories and changing a few things can transform your look from day to night in a flash! This one I would consider the night look purely because I don’t know anyone who can go all day in heels, that can’t just me right?

Outfit idea

6 . Day look, here’s another day look. Let’s be honest, floral little dresses and denim jackets are all the range right now, and I’m totally here for it! They’re cute, cool in the warm weather, and you can dress it up and down as you please!

Outfit idea

7 . Let’s go to a museum! This outfit is super cute in my opinion, and you can dress it with tights when it’s chilly, or without when it’s warmer, and it’d be great for little touristy attractions like museum, gallery and theatre visits.

And those are just a few outfit options you could make from my list of clothes I’ll be bringing with me to Scotland. And the great thing is that you can use this as a guide for pretty much any city break anywhere with a few tweaks so things suit your style!

What’s your favourite look from the group? And are you going on holiday this year? Where? Let me know in the comments!

Have a great weekend everyone!! Love,
