26.4.15 Clashing Prints

Grey Suede Jacket on Fashion Blogger

Continuing my love for my Next lace up flats, in today's outfit, I have experimented a little by tying the lace around my ankles up my legs in a gladiator style. Which shows just how versatile these high street bargains really are (if like me, you can't afford a pair of the Aquazzura 'Real Deal' *SIGH*).

Again, if you are keen to get your hands on some lace up flats I have included my favourites for you below:

The second experimentation in this outfit comes via clashing prints (florals and stripes) with perhaps a somewhat more 'girly' vibe than I am used to....

After initially feeling a bit on the strange side walking the dog on a Sunday afternoon in this ensemble, after some lovely comments over on my Instagram - you can follow me @lurchhoundloves btw if you fancy keeping abreast of my daily Insta antics - I think I actually may be able to pull off the skirt and flats look?!

Aside from the subtle take on the floral trend from my pink skirt, I love the sleeveless gypsy top  that I am wearing, which I am sure will be worn many ways this Spring / Summer from flares to button down skirts for a slight Seventies vibe. Hopefully soon, it will be warm enough to not need to jacket on top, even if I do have a massive love for suede biker jackets and this fab fringed one from Missguided right now!

What do you think about experimenting with clashing prints?

24.4.15 Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend

Vashi Diamond Earings Blog Review

What better way to start off the weekend early than talking about diamonds? 

I am sure that Marilyn would agree....

I am super excited to have found the perfect pair of diamond earrings for my wedding day next year via online diamond specialists VASHI. I had been looking for a pair of subtle, small hoops to wear as opposed to a diamond stud earring, so these gorgeous 0.15 carat diamond hoop earring in 9K white gold will be the perfect companion for my dress come the big day.

Without giving too much away, we are getting married by the sea, so the water will reflect beautifully off these subtle diamond sparkles and will also compliment my dress. Oooh, just talking about it gets me rather excited!

VASHI Diamond Earring Review

If you have been thinking of treating yourself, or a loved one to some diamond jewellery for a special occasion, but are not sure of what you are looking for, I would recommend visiting to browse their selection. You might even be surprised at the prices too...just have a guess at how much these diamond earrings cost?

Anyway, whatever your weekend plans are, here is a BIG CHEERS TO THE FREAKIN WEEKEND as the COUNTDOWN BEGINS!

22.4.15 Novelty Bags: Got Milk?

Lurch Hound Loves Skinny Dip London Milk Carton Bag

Agggghhhh, finally, I feel like I have my blogging mojo back (after recent feelings of outfit failure) with this novelty number that I shot at the weekend in the sunshine.

In my last outfit post you will have seen me mention novelty bags as a key trend for SS15, so today I am excited to bring you this Milk Bag Beauty from Skinny Dip London. Again, below I have popped a few of my favourite novelty bags that you can use to re-create this look:

The other week, whilst shopping in the Trafford Centre, I also picked up this versatile and wardrobe staple denim jacket / dress from Warehouse, which I have worn in a number of ways so far and I know it will be one of my favourite go-to items this Spring / Summer. 

Layered over playsuits (as above) or skirts, worn as a jacket with flared jeans or trousers and then buttoned up on it's own as a dress, there are so many ways that you can wear this on-trend denim piece. Now I just need to find myself a black denim version!

21.4.15 Summer Shoes | Lace Up Flats

Lace up flats and LuLu Guiness Bag

I have found the perfect pair of Summer shoes in these beautiful lace up flats from Next. Surprisingly comfortable, these shoes may have converted my love of trainers to flats for this Summer.

Lace up shoes are going to be big for SS15, so below I have popped a few of my favourites for you to browse through.

Two more big trends for SS15 include:

1. NOVELTY BAGS, as seen via fun designers including Moschino, Charlotte Olympia and LuLu Guinness. Above I am lucky enough to have styled a dream LuLu Guinness perspex lip embellished leather clutch bag, thanks to the lovely team over at MyBag, who have a great selection to choose from, including the infamous perspex lip shaped clutch bags too.

But, if you are unable to splash out on a designer novelty bag, you can get some great ones from New Look, ASOS and Skinny Dip London. Above I have picked a few of my favourites for you to look through.

2. PATCHWORK DENIM, as seen on the catwalks from Balmain to Phillip Lim and Tommy Hilfiger to Diesel - I am in love with this Diesel pair here BTW - I have recreated the look above with a pocket friendly alternative from Jailbird Jeans (here), which I have added a DIY ripped knee too (another key trend transitioning through to SS15).

With many new trends emerging for SS15, have you got a favourite one so far?
