Current Fashion Essentials

Today I thought I'd show you my current Fashion Essentials.

I have seven fashion essentials at the moment. These are items that I wear almost on a weekly basis, whether that's to Sixth Form or at the weekend. 

To begin with are two things I always reach for and that is jeans - most often either my black coated pair or my blue pair. 
Both of these are Topshop Joni jeans which I would definitely recommend to anyone! They're the perfect high waisted super skinny fit which go with anything. I also have these in a burgundy colour which I often wear during the week for Sixth Form.

I also love Cable Knit Jumpers. I have a few but this Ralph Lauren one is my favourite by far! I think the colour is just gorgeous and it is so comfortable, making it the perfect jumper to wear for a long day of shopping (my ideal day).

Who doesn't love a Roll/Polo Neck Jumper? I sure do! 
This one from New Look is SO comfy - perfect for some of the harsher winter days that we were hit with recently. The cropped length of the jumper means it looks great with my high-waisted Joni jeans.

I couldn't not buy this when I saw it Zara last year. It is so simple yet looks so good on and goes with so many different things! I don't think you can go wrong with a plain black jumper, as they're super easy to just throw on when you don't know what to wear but still want to look like you've made an effort. 

Plain tops are a must! Whether it's black, white, grey, etc. It's an absolute essential to me to have a plain top. Similarly to the black jumper, they're so easy to throw on when you're not too sure what to put on. You just can't beat a plain loose top and this one from Zara is made from the loveliest material - it actually feels like you're wearing a pyjama top!

Loafers, loafers, loafers! If I could one hundred more pairs of loafers I would be ecstatic! 
I just love how easy they are to wear and they go with everything! 
Both of these are from Topshop and I would most definitely purchase them again and recommend them to anyone looking for a pair of good quality but affordable loafers.

Lastly, Chelsea Boots... These are such a classic and timeless pair of shoes that you can't go wrong with. 
They can be paired with anything and everything making them the perfect boot.
These particular ones are from Kurt Geiger and they are so comfy - I could shop for hours and hours in them!

What's In My Handbag?

Apologies for the sporadic posting at the moment - just trying to get myself in order!
Today I thought I'd show you what's in my bag.
I received this beautiful Modalu bag for Christmas from my lovely mummy & it is now very special to me.
I use this bag whenever I go out and it is the perfect size for going out as it's not too small and not too big - so I can take just enough out with me without making it too heavy to carry.
The bag has a carry handle as well as a long handle to carry it on your shoulder.
I has 4 compartments to it; 2 outside zip compartments then a big inside compartment with a small zip pocket on the front.

As you can see I don't carry too much with me - just the essentials!
The first things I always have with me are:
My 2015 Diary & Pen - I cannot live without this now. It has a page for everyday meaning it is quite large but it has helped me organise myself so much more - especially in terms of Sixth Form.
My Ted Baker Purse - As you may know, I got this for Christmas 2013 and have used it every since! It is the perfect size for carrying around in my bag a fits perfectly in the back zip compartment.
Tissues, Handcream & Deodorant - I cannot go anywhere without these products! I'm an absolute handcream freak and I honestly feel like crying when I forget to throw a handcream in my bag! You also never know when you'll need tissues or deodorant so they're also always in my bag.

I then have:
Chewing Gum - Another I cannot go anywhere without is chewing gum. Anyone that knows me well will know that I am almost certainly always chewing gum if I'm not eating! I just really hate the taste of nothing in my mouth so it's an absolute essential for me to have chewing gum on me.
Apple Earphones & Charger - Now, who doesn't take their charger and earphones everywhere with them? I take my charger everywhere as you're never sure where you're going to end up! I am however, on the hunt for a really good portable charger, so if you have any recommendations please let me know!
Hand Sanitizer - I think everyone should carry antibacterial hand gel with them, you just never know what you might end up touching and needing to clean off your hands!

Lastly I have:
A Travalo - I'd be on the hunt for one of these for ages as I loved my perfume but did not want to take the huge bottle with me everywhere. When my mum then got me one for Christmas I was so happy! It came with two of them so I keep one in this handbag and one in my bag I use for Sixth Form. All you have to do is stick the little bottle on top of your perfume and pump it until it is full.
Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker - This is one of my favourite lip glosses which means it is always in my bag! 
Carmex - I absolutely love this stuff and have so many of them knocking about in various places. I prefer this ten times more than vaseline as it is so much more moisturising and long lasting.
Glasses & Glasses Case - Lastly, I of course have my glasses and glasses case just in case I need them when I'm out.

I hope you enjoyed having a look into my Modalu bag.
I absolutely adore it - it is such good quality and is the perfect size for what I need.

Stay up to date with when I post (which will be more regular I promise) by following me on all my social medias and bloglovin/google+
