Happily Bright and Colourful - OOTD

Cardigan - Wwul
Vest - H&M
Jeans - Topshop
Sandals & Earrings - Primark
Rings - Stall at a fair, Cat Gallery
Necklace - Gift my Dad brought back from holiday.

Hello Lovely People!
Ahh I love this outfit, so many different colours, prints and patterns. Just what I like. I don't know if you can tell on the photos but the cardigan is quite bright and neon, and would probably scare most people, but I love it and it's quite a light knit so it's a perfect bright summer cover-up. The jeans are my go-to summer jeans right now, they're the most comfortable and soft jeans ever! The cat top is just adorable and goes with almost anything. The shoes, one of my favourite recent Primark finds.

The necklace is one of my new favourites, I just love the length, it's not quite a choker but it's not long and dangle-y either. I've had it for years but it's only recently that I've actually worn it! The pastel purple shells are just beautiful and it's so summery.

I love bright, colourful outfits, you can't wear it and feel miserable, it just made me all happy! Even just looking at the photos makes me feel happy! There's so many different aspects of the outfit too, so many different things to grab your attention!

 Do you have any outfits or things you wear that make you happy?

Summer Sand - NOTD

Hello Lovely People!
I tried out a new nail polish combo, and it's awesome (hence all the photos). The photos still don't show how amazingly pretty,shimmery and rich these colours are but I tried. The nail polishes I used were Barry M Copper and Maybelline Color Show (the lack of U in this still aggravates me) Brick Shimmer.

Barry M Copper - A gorgeous smooth shimmery polish made up of copper, gold and a hint of green.
Maybelline Color Show Brick Shimmer - A beautiful brick coloured shimmer nail polish, I'm not sure how else to describe the colour apart from brick coloured, maybe a very light orange/brown/red mix? 

My attempt at explaining what I did...
The base colour of this combo was Brick Shimmer, once dry I applied a thick line of Copper around the top of the nail. I then wiped the remaining Copper polish on the brush back into the bottle and with an almost clean brush I wiped the nail polish at the top down the nail. Occasionally I needed to get a bit of extra Copper nail polish to help show the colour more. Then with the brush from Copper I focused on trying to get the Copper polish to fade out a bit towards the bottom the the nail, so Brick Shimmer was still on show at the bottom.

That probably wasn't the best explanation ever but I seriously love the outcome. It kind of reminds me of warm sandy beaches, desert islands and summer evenings.

I'll definitely be wearing this nail polish combination again, what do you think?

Wandering Around My Garden in Heels - OOTD

Top & Shoes - New Look
Skirt - Miss Selfridge 
Belt - H&M
Socks - Primark
Ring - Cat Gallery in York

Hello Lovely People!
If you follow me on instagram (my instagram name is sarahri3) you will have already seen these shoes, I'm obsessed with them. I spotted them in New Look and I just knew they were coming home with me. I thought they could be difficult to walk in but no! I managed to go on a night out in them, walk on cobbled streets and run down some stairs while jumping away from a bee or wasp....I'm seriously planning soooo many outfits to wear with these shoes. I can't wait! 

I went for a nice casual look today with my loose fit cross print top, I love wearing it so it's off the shoulder, it drapes beautifully. I also love the shape of my denim Miss Selfridge skirt and it's high waisted so bonus. The outfit is completed with my H&M leopard print belt and Primark frilly socks. 

     I have started to build up a collection of cute and quirky socks, a new obsession maybe? I have all sorts from ombre/tie-dye to frilly to watermelon print. I even have a separate box in my wardrobe for all my awesome socks (I do wash them obviously), that isn't weird, is it?...

What do you think about cute and quirky socks?
