Stand Out

LEATHER JACKET: RIVER ISLAND
SHIRT: TOPSHOP
JEANS: TOPSHOP (similar)
BOOTS: KAT MACONIE

I recently won the ASOS Fashion Finder competition and won a £100 voucher for the online shop Coggles. I don't think i've ever won a competition before so this was amazing. I spent my voucher on these amazing Kat Maconie boots and a stunning Marc Jacobs ring, which i will post a pic of on my instagram (@racheloliverr). If you want to see my winning entry its here. The boots stand out so much and i've really never seen anything like them in the high street.

Sorry i have not posted in so long. I suddenly ended up with an exam and a deadline in the same week, along with a few personal stresses and falling ill, so i really failed with motivation the past week. So, sorry my ootd post is so boring, but i've literally been favouring comfort this week, however i'll be on top form soon!

Love,

New Favourite


JACKET: WEEKDAY
BLOUSE: TOPSHOP (similar)
TROUSERS: FRENCH CONNECTION
BOOTS: TOPSHOP

Sorry for being such a bad blogger this past week, life is literally so hectic at the moment! However saying that, I've been glued to social media, practically lusting after everything at LFW and being so envious of everyone that managed to go. Also apologies for bringing out this bomber again, which is such a favourite of mine. I've been re-wearing so many items and wasn't sure whether to post the outfit, but its always nice to see different ways of styling certain items i think!

I'm also so excited to announce that I reached 200 GFC followers and i'm so happy! I've been blogging since April/May last year and its so nice when you know people enjoy what content you put on here. So this is why I'm going to do a little giveaway to say thankyou and this will be in my next post once I decide what to do.

Love,

Baring It

TOP: FRONTROW
SKIRT: PRIMARK
BOOTS: NINE WEST (similar)

I so badly wanted to take these pictures without the tights because lets face it, when do tights ever make it to catwalk high end fashion? However, practicality got the best of me since the North West was hit with 100mph winds yesterday, and i literally couldn't bare it any longer!

I've worn this Primark skirt on countless nights out since I purchased it not long ago. It's actually a pencil skirt, which i just pulled up a little to wear with the sweatshirt and is amazing quality for price! I've also recently come across FrontRowShop and i cannot recommend this online store enough! They stock so many unique, designer looking pieces which i've been searching through high street shops for, for so long. Its similar to the other well known online store, Choies.

White Monday


BLAZER: FOREVER 21 (similar)
SHIRT: TOPSHOP
TROUSERS: FRENCH CONNECTION
BOOTS: TOPSHOP

Another Monday and another week begins. I started this week off with a clean, minimal 'suit look' mostly inspired by my obsession with all white androgynous looks on tumblr recently. 

I've featured this blazer twice in a row now but i just cannot get over how much i love it. Such good quality for £25.99 but its nowhere to be seen online! I bought mine in store recently so i had no idea until i tried to link it on here, so frustrating when shops do this!

Love,

Got Lucky


TOP: ZARA
BLAZER: FOREVER 21 (similar)
BOOTS: TOPSHOP

I'd been spying on this little gem of a top ever since it was on the Zara site for about £30, but for a little top like this i just couldn't justify the price. However, through scouring the sales yesterday, i found it for £12.99! Lets just say I snatched it from the rail and almost ran to the till.

I've showed the top in two ways, the top pictures are just to show the style of the top, but I've also shown how I would wear it out, as its not particular weather-friendly at the moment. Thank goodness it was mildly sunny taking these outfit pictures. Also, please can we just take a second to observe how horribly PALE i am? I need a holiday!

Tourist



COAT: ASOS
SWEATER: ASOS
TROUSERS: TOPSHOP

I completely forgot that when i went to london last week, i also took ootd pictures. Sometimes life really does get away from you, can't believe its been a week since i was there! Literally couldn't decide whether to upload this post or not, the pictures aren't great quality as they were taken on the TUBE?! I don't think i've ever taken pictures in a more embarrassing place in my life, a few funny stares were sent my way. This is also why i haven't shown my outfit without the coat, i felt cringe enough as it is! So sorry.

These pictures were taken after walking around oxford street for around 2hrs in the rain, don't know about you but i cannot WAIT for summer! I'm also so close to 200 followers on GFC and i've decided to do a little giveaway when i reach 200! I'll do a whole post when I get there!

Thrown Together

TOP: PRIMARK
BOOTS: TOPSHOP

Before a blog post, i do like to plan nearly all my outfits, making sure everything goes and i have the right feel to my looks and i barely ever just wake up, throw something on and walk out the door. Today's look is exactly that, the kind of outfit that literally takes a second to think of as I threw it on during my 5 minute rush before leaving for uni, but still fits together. To be fair, with only a black/white/grey wardrobe, its hard to find pieces which DON'T go together.

I'd never heard of the brand Weekday until Ivania from love aesthetics mentioned them in a blog post of hers, and i really do love a lot of their pieces! This bomber is unfortunately sold out, which i grabbed for £11 so do check the sales as a lot of the time they do have absolute steals.

ps. i still stand by the fact i live in the windiest city in the UK, literally every picture on my blog has my hair blown all over my face! apologies. 

Love,
Rachel x
