What’s On My Fashion Wishlist for Summer

The sun has been shining and that only means one thing, I need to change up my wardrobe a little. I came to get dressed for work ready for the 21 degree highs last week and realised, I literally had nothing which is weather appropriate. Which obviously lead to a little online shopping, whoops. I thought, maybe I should get rid of the thick jumpers I’ve been constantly wrapped up in lately to something a little more summery.

With saving I’ve been looking at purchasing some staple pieces without breaking the bank. I think this is a perfect way to change up my wardrobe a little without spending a fortune, and here are some of the things which have been added to my Wishlist for SS18.

P.s I have thrown in a few little accessories which I think are hella cute!

I think you can tell, I’m not all that in to colour. But, with these being more staple pieces each item could look different in a different outfit with different accessories etc. What are your staple pieces for this SS18? I’d love to know! Let me know in the comments or tweet me!

ASOS Spring Fashion Picks

Waking up to the sun shining automatically makes me excited. I am so excited for the summer months, and not having to wear like a gazillion layers to work. Plus, there is nothing more I love to do when I have zero pennies in my bank than to ‘pretend shop’ on ASOS or any other website I fancy. So with the slightly warmer weather approaching I thought I’d let you peak into my ASOS basket and see my top spring picks.

Although I love everything I’ve picked (otherwise I wouldn’t have picked them duuhh), I think my all time favourites are the ASOS linen maxi because you could wear it on warmer days as it is, but it would also look cute on cooler days with a long sleeved white t-shirt underneath. Along with, the ASOS Emilia ankle boots because *insert heart eye emoji’s here* they are just beautiful.

Autumn ASOS Wishlist

With summer pretty much over now, I need to update my wardrobe to keep me warm over the autumn and winter months. ASOS is my favourite place to shop lately, purely because of the range they have on their website, so many options in just one place!

The colder months only mean one thing, jumpers, layers and my favourite ankle boots! I think autumn is definitely my favourite month for fashion because I just love layers and comfy clothes like oversized jumpers and scarves.

Here are my favourite pieced from the Halloween collection –

Disney-holic Wishlist

I love Disney, I mean come on – who doesn’t? I definitely class myself a Disney-holic, I have tonnes of Disney themed things around the house, from pictures to mugs and much, much more.

Disney AND wishlist’s are definitely my two favourite things. So, there’s no better way to spend a dull afternoon other than window shopping all the Disney items I wish I had the money to buy. Let’s get stuck in;

Are you a Disney-holic? Tweet me @horrorgrrrrl I’d love to chat Disney with you!

The Races – What to Wear

As you all know, I started my new job recently – and let me tell you I love it! Don’t get me wrong its stressful, very stressful. Especially with it being so different to what I’m used too. I’ve worked in the retail/food industry for nearly 5 years, now I’m training to be a PA.

Anyway, lets not waffle on. Thats what my Sunday Thoughts posts are for. A few days into being on my training team, we got informed of the next work event. Which is the Chester Races on the 8th July. I’m super excited because from all of the stories I’ve heard about – it seems like sooo much fun.

Its basically an evening for everyone to let their hair down and newbies – like me – get the chance to mingle a little more. So obviously, the first thing I thought was what the hell am I going to wear? 

So little old me, heads for the online shops. Now, I have too many choices and cant seem to narrow them down. Help?


Mellia Taupe Plunge Bodycon £25; Mina Floral Print Strappy Full Skirt Skater £20; Chi Chi London Premium Lace Midi £65; Jenna Deep Plunge Jumpsuit Navy £25

I’d love to hear your opinions and see which your favourites are. Or if you have a completely different suggestion, let me know! Either in the comments or tweet me @horrorgrrrrl

Faultless Floral

So remember that wedding I spoke about a few times in different posts? Well it finally happened!
Friday morning my house was hectic, trying to get myself ready as well as my little brother was a nightmare.
But it was all worth it, and I decided it would be the perfect opportunity for me to write my very first full outfit post! From head to toe, I will be talking you through every decision that concluded in me wearing this outfit.

I bought the jumpsuit months ago, I eyed it up one day in the Quiz section when I was walking through Debenhams and knew that was what I wanted to wear for this occasion. So I bought it there and then because knowing my luck if I’d have left it, it would have disappeared and I wouldn’t have been able to find anything else as nice.

As soon as I bought the jumpsuit I knew exactly what I wanted to wear with it. I had an image in my head and that’s where the hard part came in. Finding the pieces to complete this image.

First I went on a hunt for shoes (and probably should have got a bag at the same time). I knew what colour I wanted; mint green. I, well, Nathan found the perfect shoes in New Look. They were the perfect colour, and rather comfy as well. Comfort was a big factor as I knew I was going to be wearing them all day. So bought them for around £20.

Next was the hunt for a bag. I found the perfect one online, from ASOS. It was the right colour and the exact design/style I wanted, just a reasonably sized, plain clutch bag. But I did the worst thing I could’ve done and thought “I’ll buy that next payday” and guess what? It wasn’t there next payday. I kept telling myself it was going to be fine, mint green’s quite a popular summer colour. BUT NO, I couldn’t find one ANYWHERE. All the ones I found were either too big, too dark or had too much detail. I was having a nightmare.

Whilst this frantic bag search was commencing I was also hunting high and low for a blazer and all the ones I had seen were fitted and just a regular, hip length but I wanted a long-line, loose fitted one and I thought I was going to have to pay ridiculous amounts to get what I wanted but out of luck I found the perfect long-line off-white blazer from Primark for the bargain price of £10 in the sale. I was over the moon!

In the end I ended up ordering a bag off eBay on Monday which is pretty late considering it was only 5 days until the wedding itself. Unfortunately it wasn’t the exact colour I wanted but I had no other choice at this point, I needed a bag.

Anyway, on Wednesday Nathan and I decided to go for a wonder around one of the local retail parks and I’m so happy we did! THANK THE LORD FOR DOROTHY PERKINS! I walked through the store and I spotted the perfect clutch bag down the back of the store. In my head it was like walking up the stairway to heaven with this bag at the end. I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy that I went into Dorothy Perkins before in my life. It was fate. This bag was the perfect colour, perfect size, nice and plain. At a bargain of £10 it was amazing, and less than half the price I paid for the one off eBay.

So that was my outfit complete. I was so happy; I had everything I needed to complete the image I had in my head those few months before AND I felt amazing! My body confidence was on a high, I had such an amazing time and everyone looked beautiful!
