Fitting Room Fever

At the moment I'm literally crushing on so many clothes and just can't afford to buy them all. So I try them on and take a quick snap to remind myself to get them next pay day!
This little pink crop is a summer must! It will literally go with everything, it's basically a necessity...

Trousers: Topshop (last summer) 
Shoes: Topshop 

I've been wanting an American Apparel romper for ages, so when I stumbled across the lilac version I thought I'd fallen in love! Style with a pair of chunky sandals and oversized sunnies and you're sorted! 
Romper: American Apparel 

My house mate and I went into Mango today just out of pure lust thinking it would be too expensive, but this LBD was an absolute steal for £24.99, so flattering! 
Dress: Mango 
Shoes: Topshop 

Treated myself to this pale blue crop top, will be blogging it soon with a different outfit. Pair it with high waisted bottoms and heels or flats for a dresses up or down look.

Trousers: Topshop (last summer)

These shorts though! Beautiful mint colour is truly stunning! Pair with a pastel crop top and you're sorted, I certainly will be!!

Such lovely pastels around at the moment, this lightweight pink jumper is perfect for spring with jeans, shorts or a skirt!

Skirt: Topshop 

So yes this is in essence my 'love list' rather than wish list. Although I would love to have all of these items as well! SS14 is going to be host of some amazing colours, patterns and styles. This is the start of my obsession and will not be the end!

The arrival of Spring?

I'm so excited to be doing my first blog post. It was an absolute dream blogging in today's 17 degree weather, I hope today is the arrival of spring! 
I treated myself to these metallic chunky heeled sandals from River Island the other day and just had to blog about them. 

I've decided to style them casually here with jeans and a lightweight pastel jumper (a bit too warm for today's weather though) and a pair of oversized sunglasses. However, you could easily dress these sandals up with a skirt or a chiffon dress and of course pair them with some stylish socks. I absolutely love gingham and pastels this ss14, so found it effortless pairing these metallic beauties with them! Love to mix and match colours and patterns. The sandals themselves are comfy and easy to walk in, absolutely love them. I would recommend them to anyone. 
Also, I doubt this will be my last blog on shoes because I'm slightly shoe obsessed and sandals are my faves... 

Sandals: River Island
Top: Vintage
Jeans: Topshop 
Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters
Bag: Mulberry 

With love, Charlie xo

It's only the beginning

This is just a quick hello to introduce myself and then we will get onto the good stuff! Fashion!

My names Charlie, I'm 21, in my 3rd and final year at UWE Bristol studying English Lit and Journalism. I have no idea why I thought it was the best idea to start my blog 6 weeks before I have to hand my dissertation in! I guess I just couldn't wait.

I'm a massive fashion enthusiast, so blogging just seems to be the natural thing to do. I'm hoping to become a visual merchandiser once graduated. I will be expressing my personal style and blogging my new buys. I hope you enjoy!
