Dressed Down: Off Shoulder Top

For a dressed down look I paired the top with my favourite jeans - I bought these Mom jeans from Topshop 3 years ago and I first showcased them in this post. Over the years they have kept their shape and colour and still fit me very well. I felt a kind of modern day 90s vibe with this outfit, which I finished off with my current favourite footwear, Stan Smiths. I had a lot of fun with this shoot as you can tell with the amount of pictures hahaa xo

Dressed Up: Off Shoulder Top

I've been loving the off shoulder trend this summer - although summer hasn't really been summer here in the UK as we've had nothing but grey, wet weather for the past 2 weeks. Despite the autumnal vibes recently, I couldn't help but put together these outfits featuring this amazing top from Zara. Zara is fast becoming a favourite of mine as everything in this look is from there - however the only recent purchase is the top, everything else is from last year. I love this top so much, I have it in white as well! xo

Dressed Down: Striped Trousers

Trousers - Zara // Top - H&M // Bag - Urban Outfitters // Sunglasses - Urban Outfitters // Sandals - Office
I've become ever so slightly obsessed with these mirror sunglasses so you should just get used to seeing them because they're gonna be around a lot this summer haha! For this look I paired the trousers with a plain grey v-neck tee and sliders for a super casual outfit. I actually have this bag in 2 colours because I adore it so much, it comes with a detachable strap so can be worn on the shoulder or as a clutch xo

Dressed Up: Striped Trousers

Top and trousers - Zara // Sunglasses - Urban Outfitters // Heels and clutch - New Look
I've come up with a new concept for my blog called 'Dressed Up, Dressed Down'. What I'll be doing is taking an item of clothing and creating 2 outfits; one dressed up for a special occasion or event and the other will be dressed down for a casual daytime outfit. 
First up are these cropped trousers from Zara! I am in love with these trousers and they have easily become my favourite summer staple. The stripes on the trousers are actually navy but it's very hard to tell. For this first outfit I've dressed them up and paired them with a black boatneck tshirt and nude heels. I wore a similar outfit recently to a wedding and I loved how it looked xo

Nip + Fab Kale Fix Moisturiser

I have combination skin - so I have an oily t-zone and the rest of my skin is dry. For the longest time it was hard to find a moisturiser that worked for me. I've tried products for oily skin that just completely dried my face, and I've tried things for combination skin which just made my face even oilier. So when I discovered that a product designed for dry skin works wonders for me, I was shocked.
I first received Nip + Fab Kale Fix Moisturiser as a free sample with an order I placed with them. I was a bit apprehensive about using it at first because it's advertised as a product for dry skin and thought that it would make my face look like an oil slick. However, as my usual face cream was finished I thought I'd give it a try and I was not disappointed. This product leaves my skin so soft and hydrated without drying or over moisturising. The moisturiser is quite thick so a little goes a long way, but in no way does it feel heavy on the skin. It's easily absorbed, smells amazing and lasts all day.
It contains so many amazing ingredients that help soothe and rejuvenate the skin, such as, aloe vera, cucumber and shea butter. Before using this product I was actually using raw shea butter, which I still stand by and highly recommend if this is out of your price range. But for anyone looking for a new product to try to combat dry skin this winter, definitely give this a try. I love it so much I've ordered their Kale Fix Clay Mask which I cannot wait to try xo
