Birmingham – Clothes Show Live – OOTD #4, 5 & 6

Hello everyone,

On Thursday I went with my University on a trip up to Birmingham! On the way up we stopped at Bicester Village, we went and had a talk with a lovely woman from the marketing team, who discussed all things retail with us which was really interesting. They gave us a VIP ticket each (success!!) which gave us an extra discount in the shops, and we then went off shopping!

On the way up I wore a black cropped fluffy jumper, over a cream shirt with black hearts on it. I paired this with black jeans and black flats (excuse the hideous carpet!)

We then continued our drive up to Birmingham (which felt like FOREVER away!) We stayed in an IBIS hotel right next to the Bull Ring shopping centre, perfect for me 😀 A few of us girls went out and tracked down a Nandos (yummy!) and then came back to the hotel to get ready for a night out. We only went for a few drinks so decided to dress down a bit, and wore a jumper because it was freezing!

On the Friday we got up early and went off to the Clothes Show Live at the NEC! I was so excited and when I got there I felt like a child in a sweet shop!! We watched the fashion show at 11:15am and I thought it was amazing! I couldn’t get any photos of the show because I couldn’t get my camera to take a decent photo in the dark arena 😦 But I can tell you it was so inspiring! Henry Holland was the presenter and Neon Jungle sang! I loved so many of the clothes and will be looking out to purchase similar items!

After the show we went out to scout down some celebrities! (major Made In Chelsea fan here!) We found Jamie, Proudlock and Andy, I got my photo taken with all of them!!

We then went off to look at all the stalls, there was so many that it was almost over whelming! I could have bought lots of stuff that day! I wore another monochrome outfit (no surprise there!) I wore my new check duster coat and wore all black underneath to make the coat stand out.

OOTD #3

Hello readers,

Today was such a beautiful day, so we decided to go to Eastbourne Harbour and take some photos. The sun was shining but it was still super cold, so a Starbucks was definitely needed! I think the classic red cups are a great sign that christmas is coming, and their christmas menu is so lovely, i had a toffee nut latte and can totally recommend!

Today i went with a monochrome outfit with a statement red lip. As you will begin to see i wear a lot of monochrome, but i am trying to incorporate more colour in my outfits. I know lots of people are the same as me, but hopefully you will see how i am beginning to add colour to my outfits and take inspiration from them.

I love patterned trousers and these Newlook ones are very easy to wear and match with any outfit. I paired them with a slouchy black jumper and a pair of girly flats. Being that it is now winter, i had to wear a coat, so chose this black ASOS one, it has a hidden red collar that matched my statement lips. I paired all this with black flats, a watch and a bag. 4.jpg 5.jpg 6.jpg 7.jpg 8.jpg
