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!

I Failed Project 333, And That’s Ok.

I Failed Project 333, And That’s Ok.

Cute Outfit Flatlay

Happy Saturday my lovelies! Can you believe we’re in September? It’s finally spooky season! As someone who loves Autumn and Winter, I can’t wait for Halloween and then Christmas, and the weather to get chillier. It’s this time of year when everyone starts to put away their Summer clothes and pull out their cosy jumpers and ankle boots.

And that leads me onto today’s post; as you may know, over the last few months I’ve been doing a sort of fashion challenge – project 333, and for the first 1 3/4 months it went great. And then, I sort of fell off of the project 333 wagon. But you know what, that’s ok.

I think part of the reason why I struggled to keep up with the project was because I hadn’t thought about how long 3 months really is, and in what 3 months I would actually have to keep my 33 items and the project going for. And what I’d completely forgotten was that Autumn would begin half way through the project. Which meant that my wardrobe of choice probably wouldn’t be suitable for the change in temperature.

Another reason why I failed the project was because I went on a bit of a shopping binge. You see, over the last few weeks I’ve really been thinking about the clothes I love and the style that I love to wear, and to tell you the truth I caved and went on a shopping spree and picked up a few new t-shirts, jeans, cardigans, jumpers and basically anything I loved that would fit with the aesthetic I love.

So yeah, I failed project 333, but that’s ok; because I learnt a lot from the project not only about the importance of trying to avoid fast fashion and being more conscious with clothes waste but also about my own sense of style and what makes me feel good. When I go shopping I try and stick to brands who are more eco conscious and have values I believe in.

What I have decided to do now, is donate the clothes that I don’t wear anymore, and put together a condensed capsule wardrobe of sorts with around 40 pieces of clothes and about 5 pairs of shoes. When I pick up anything new I give myself the task of thinking of at least 5 different outfits I can make with it before deciding if it’s something that is worth buying, so I’m not picking up one-wear-wonders.

So, what does my wardrobe contain now?

Well, I have a selection of t-shirts (I’ve been loving tying tee’s up with high waisted skirts and jeans), mom jeans (with one pair I have personalised with fabric markers, you can see them in the photo above), jumpers, cardigans and skirts.

Here’s some pieces from my updated wardrobe:

It’s funny looking back over the last few weeks at what’s changed and what hasn’t, one of the biggest changes being how much my hair has grown and that I’ve dyed it a dark auburn colour! Here’s a rough run down of what my entire wardrobe entails now:

Updated Wardrobe

And those are all of the items in my new wardrobe! There’s a few more classic items like a few more vest tops and black and white tshirts, but that’s about it for what I’ve got. I’ve also included my black military boots, some brown ankle boots, two pairs of platform trainers, black flats and a pair of white converse.

All that’s left is to find a dress that I like and feel comfortable in for lots of different occasions and I think that’ll be everything I need in my wardrobe. Another thing I’ve found a love for is gold jewellery and headbands. Headbands in particular at the moment because my hair is growing out and is in between styles, and these have been super helpful in helping me tame it a bit.

Even though I changed my capsule wardrobe from my project 333 one, looking back I still like all of the outfits I made with that wardrobe, but I feel a lot more happy with my updated one. I think my favourite items are the mom jeans, my personalised mom jeans, camel cardigan, printed t-shirts and my grey halter-neck waistcoat top.

Although I didn’t manage my three months with my 33 items, I don’t see it as a complete failure, because at the end of the day I found out what I do and don’t like to wear, which is one of the main goals of the project, so in some ways, the project was actually a success? I’m looking forward to seeing how my wardrobe evolves over the next few months, and if I can find a dress I feel comfortable and happy in. I think my new goal for my capsule wardrobe of sorts is to stay under 50 pieces in total, and not have many items I rarely wear.

And that’s about it for today! What’re your favourite pieces from your wardrobe? Let me know in the comments! I always love replying to you and seeing what you’re up to. And don’t forget you can always keep in touch and up to date with what I’m up to over on my instagram @theweightofmyworlds and on my pinterest also @theweightofmyworlds!

Stay safe my lovelies and have a great weekend! Love,

Day to Night Looks.

Day to Night Looks.

Happy Saturday my lovelies! How’re you doing today? It’s been a busy week for me here, I’ve been working away like mad on all sorts of projects; from working for the SUN Network, doing freelance work, painting and going out to meet up with friends!

And that brings me onto today’s post. Day to night looks! Since I’ve been so busy, I’ve been trying to maximise what I can do with some of my outfits to make them transformable from day to night time with just a few tweaks.

So, let’s get into it!

Day to Night Graphic Tee Look

1 . The graphic tee.

I just love a graphic tee and jeans combo, I think these are great for casual days out and about with trainers and a handbag with minimal jewellery; and then all you have to do in the evening is swap your trainers for some heels (or swap up your shoes to whatever you want, you do you) and put a clutch and a cool pair of earrings on with a blazer or leather jacket and you’re good to go!

Day to Night LBD Look

2 . The classic, little black dress.

Nearly all of us have a little black dress right? Well I love pairing a LBD with a white long sleeve tee or jumper, tights and boots for an edgy grunge day look; and then for the evening I would get rid of the top underneath, put on some heels and a suede jacket with a clutch and you’re ready for date night!

Day to Night Mom Jeans Look

3 . Bold and fun mom jeans looks.

You know I love a bright and fun look, and that’s exactly what we’ve got here, plus, they feature my favourite colour – yellow! To be honest I think both of these outfits look great day and night, but maybe that’s just because I love these outfits so so much. I love a mom jean look, so pairing some mom jeans with a cute black top, patterned trainers and a bold bag is perfect. Then all I did was switch the bag to this awesome banana cartoon bag I saw online, added some cute cherry earrings and some bright yellow heels and we’ve got a great night look with tonnes of personality!

Day to Night Denim Skirt Look

4 . Denim skirts and bodysuits.

These are similar to the looks before because I think both of these work great for day and night, but if you’re going for a day look, I’d recommend the look on the left because it’s got more comfortable and warm shoes! These looks will also worth for most skirts that are in your wardrobe, that or even pair these with jeans! I love tops tucked into skirts or jeans, so a bodysuit is the way to go so you haven’t got to keep tucking it in!

Day to Night LRD Look

5 . Finally we have the little red dress.

Recently I’ve been loving the effortless summery dress with trainers look for days out, and they’re great with tights when the weather is a bit colder. For the night look I like how a quick switch of shoes can bring this look from casual day to date night in seconds.

And those are my day to night looks!

I love day to night looks because they make me feel confident, ready for anything they day has to offer, and they’re great for when you’re going on a trip somewhere and haven’t got a huge amount of clothing space! Do I sense a capsule wardrobe vibe?

Trying to decide on which outfit(s) is my favourite was hard because they’re all so cute but if I had to decide I think it’d have to be the mom jeans look, purely for the fact that I love quirky accessories and who doesn’t love being comfy day and night in jeans!

What’s your go-to day to night outfit? Let me know in the comments!

Have a great weekend my lovelies!

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!

Styling Vintage Shirts.

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!

Favourite Outfits For May.

Favourite Outfits For May.

Hello my lovelies! Who’s looking forward to the bank holiday weekend?! I know I am! Finger’s crossed the weather holds up and it stays sunny all weekend. With May swiftly coming to an end, and the weather changing once again, I thought now would be a good time to show you some of my favourite outfits and pieces from this month.

And who knows, if you like it, maybe this’ll become a monthly thing!

So, let’s jump right into it!

1 . Baggy/loose oversized dungarees or overalls. I picked up this pair from Tesco’s F & F range and I’m so happy with them! What I will say is, if you want them oversized, and super comfy, go at least on or two sizes up! I love pairing these with a simple white tee and I love how chic they look.

2 . Ripped mom jeans and biker jacket combo. This outfit is perfect for a date night, or just out and about running errands, I’m not going to tell you where you can wear this; you do you! Also, I picked this cute crop top up from Tk Maxx for £2.99! Bargain! Plus if you’re after a cheap biker jacket, I got this one from Primark for the small sum of £14.

3 . Cutesy Paris crop top. When I first saw this top in Tk Maxx I was convinced it could only be a pyjama top; but once I’d actually tried it on, I absolutely loved it and had to buy it. I love baby pink as a colour, and the pastel macarons on it are super cute.

4 . Striped pastel yellow honey tee. This top is quite possibly one of the softest tops I own, it’s also super stretchy and its oversized so it’s so comfy. This top is so cute paired with my lighter mom jeans and bright bag. It’s cute, comfy and casual.

5 . My cacti shirt. Anyone who knows me knows how much I adore cacti. Whether it’s home décor or fashion, I’ll buy it if it’s got one on it! This shirt is one of my favourites for this month because it’s thin so you can wear it on a hot day or layer up and it’s great for when it gets chilly.

6 . Rust coloured tee and denim skirt. The colour of this t-shirt is so pretty and it’s been looking great with any form of denim. I like how this outfit can be dressed up or down so I like it for when I’m off out during the day and haven’t got time to change for going out in the evening.

What’s been your favourite things to wear this month? My mood dictates what I’m wearing every day, which means one day I’ll be styling a flowy feminine dress, and the next I’ll be wearing something androgynous or more masculine. Something I can’t wait to delve deeper into is fashion in Tokyo, because everyone there looks so cool!

And that’s it from me today! What was your favourite outfit? I’m torn between my oversized overalls and ripped mom jeans looks. Have a great weekend lovelies!!

Love,
