Jessica ~ Major Lazer x Vampire Weekend

If I haven't mentioned before, I am a sucker for the National Trust. For those who don't know, the National Trust is an organization that buys & retains old buildings in the u.k i.e castles, manors, victorian/edwardian houses & beautiful gardens. I was basically brought up in this organization, as a kid, on the weekends my parents would pack a picnic & we would set off for the day heading to a castle ruins or a gigantic manor house filled with edwardian furniture. I loved it. I always pretended I was a princess or on some kind of adventure as soon as I stepped on the grounds & quite honestly, all these years later I still do.

I finally had a day off work a few sundays ago & me & my family set off to an old 1900s country cottage. As soon as I entered the little house I immediately pictured myself in an Agatha Christie novel.

Does anybody else love the National Trust?

My go to colour has always been black. Although some people find this incredibly boring, I find that it is the colour that I am most comfortable wearing. I find you can always look simple but chic & can make a simple black outfit stand out with a pop of colour when accessorising. I however prefer to team a black ensemble with a statement necklace, or gold jewellery paired with a large black bag.

My inspiration for a simple chic outfit:

Here are some of my chosen items from the online shop Persunmall, which I find help create the simple black look.

My current wishlist! 

Let Her Go ~ Passenger

Lately I have really been drawn to the colours white, gold & light pink. I have even gone so far as to think about  redecorating my room in these colours. MY room needs a major revamp as it is full of junk & is in desperate need of new furniture.

So I  made a n inspiration board on Pinterest & selected a few of the images  from there to help me get started on designing! 

So I cannot wait until I can start purchasing unusual accessories to help decorate my room. I will be buying the furniture from Ikea & for decor, I will be turning to trusty Etsy, flea market & auctions!


La La La ~ Naughty Boy Ft. Sam

This is my go to outfit for the moment. 

Pale blue jeans paired with a light strappy top. In hot weather I never now what to wear for cover so I thought a Floral blazer makes a difference to a plain outfit but can always be taken off when it gets too hot. 

I love gold & white sandals for summer, they look great on the beach or by the pool.

I find that Aviator sunglasses suit my face shape the most but I can't resist a set of strange sunnies & these Hexagonal ones from Topshop are too cool.

& finally a pretty bag, I just wish that I did have a pale pink Rocco bag :(

I was recently gifted this statement necklace by a friend & it's safe to say, I'm in love! I'm not big on blingy jewellery but I love statement necklaces paired with a simple outfit. I think it can make the outfit simple, chic & frankly a little more interesting.

Here are a few statement necklaces off Pinterest, I love the way they are styled!

Anyone have a particular piece of statement jewellery that they love?
