Joe Browns.

A few weeks ago I was contacted by a clothing company who wanted to gift me some items in exchange for a blog post. Of course as with anything I checked out the store first, I have had to turn some companies down when it comes to gifting, as if I genuinely don’t like the clothes I can’t accept them and I feel inauthentic. So to my delight there were some items I really loved, the website has a cool laid back vibe and I think that there is definitely something for everyone. I chose a really cool pair of flat sandals adorned with pompoms that are super bright and really gorgeous for summer, next I chose a beautiful blouse with a bird print on, which looks great teamed with skinny jeans and I am equally looking forward to wearing it on my holidays with denim cut offs or as a cover up on the beach, the last item I chose was a really lovely necklace which is really bohemian and has that hippie style I love. The price range is super affordable and the quality of the items is great, so in all I am a very happy bunny (What girl isn’t at the prospect of free clothes!) The bag I styled the blouse with is from my collection I am selling, you can email me for more details (Shameless plug there for myself!!) I hope you like the items and if you want to check out the website it is http://www.joebrowns.co.uk

Currently listening to Pharrell Williams new album Girl, favourite one (Its the rudest but I love the beat!) Gush!

An inch of skin

Admittedly I’m not really a ‘sexy’ (Hate that word, makes me shudder) kind of dresser (or person for that matter), I never dress for men or really show a whole lot of skin. The whole thing just makes me uncomfortable, I much prefer leaving a little to the imagination. However as much as it pains me to say it, over the knee boots are quite overtly sexual. Alas I do love them though, but worn in the right way they can still look classy. The key is to cover everything else up, there’s nothing worse than boobs, bum, bingo wings, back….. trying to think of another B for legs… all hanging out, you get the picture. You want to say ‘You can look but you can’t touch’ not ‘Please come and spend the night with me, I’m £10 an hour’. I wore this outfit last Saturday for a meal at Mal Maison Liverpool, with my gal pals. The food and wine where delicious, as was the company, my cheeks where hurting we laughed so much. My mum recently visited Florence in Italy and picked up this gorgeous skirt from Zara for me and the necklace was also a gift from her (isn’t she the best!). It’s incredibly special as it’s vintage and made from Aurora borealis stones which means ‘Northern lights’ It is inspired by the Northern Lights as it has a special iridescent finish that shines with many colours. These pieces are very rare and was invented in the 1950’s by the Swarovski company with Christian Dior. I love how dainty it is, it is the perfect complement to any outfit. With this outfit I’ve also broke the rule that navy and black should never be paired together, I personally think this is a load of nonsense as the two colours look beautiful together and super chic. Hope you guys are enjoying your Saturday, have a great weekend 🙂
