The Animal Print Edit

Hi folks! I know it’s been a very very long time since my last post, I’ve hoped to write here more regularly but you know, life gets in the way sometimes. Past couple months haven’t been the easiest for me however, I feel like things are getting better now and so I’m back, feeling very fresh! Anyways, moving onto the good stuff, as you all know animal print has been trending for a while now and we literally see it everywhere on Instagram, in the streets, in every high-street/online fashion store! So I thought I’d put together an #OOTD file on my favourite animal print pieces for some style inspo!

Bershka snakeskin print shirt (mine is no longer available), similar HERE // Bershka mom jeans (mine is no longer available), similar HERE // Bershka platform trainers (mine is no longer available), similar HERE

For the first look, I styled this snakeskin print shirt with blue mom jeans for a comfy yet chic look! Mom jeans are literally a life saver if you don’t have much time to put together a nice outfit and they go with pretty much everything! I love how the blue jeans complement this snakeskin print.  You can finish off this look with a pair of heeled mules  for a date-night look or with a pair of platform trainers for a more casual look, like I did!

Forever 21 black cropped sweater (mine is no longer available), similar HERE // Stradivarius leopard print mini skirt (mine is no longer available), similar HERE // Black suede knee high boots (mine is no longer available), similar HERE // Chloe Nile Bracelet Bag

For the second look, I styled this leopard print mini skirt with a black cropped sweater, black tights and black suede knee high boots for a little day trip. I wanted to focus all the attention on the leopard skirt to make it pop, so I kept the rest of the outfit basic, although I love the extra bit of colour that the Chloe Nile Bracelet Bag adds to the whole outfit! The gold bracelet detail of the bag also complements the leopard skirt very nicely.

Zara snakeskin print dress (mine is no longer available), similar HERE // Zara high-heel leather boots (only available in black)

This snakeskin print dress is absolutely a must-have at the moment as it can be easily styled for a day or a night look! I opted for a pair of Zara high-heel leather boots which by the way has been a popular piece this season, having sold out many times. If you would like to grab a pair, you still have a chance as although most colors have sold out, these boots are available in black in all sizes! I thought I’d keep it simple and sleek with this snakeskin print dress but as a finishing touch, you can always add a leather belt to make it more structured and form-fitting.

For the last look, I chose this leopard print side split midi skirt and decided to style it with a black high-neck sleeveless crop top on a warm and sunny day. The exact same skirt is no longer available unfortunately, however you can get your hands on this New Look Leopard Print Side Split Midi Skirt that’s actually on sale at the moment (only £6, don’t miss it!). For a little pop of colour, I put on a green suede biker jacket which I think gives the vibe of a easygoing, yet well put-together look! I didn’t want to go overboard for a day of lectures at uni, so I kept things casual with a pair of Adidas Stan Smith shoes.

And that concludes this #OOTD file, let me know which animal print piece you like the most! So until next time (I promise, it won’t be long lol!), stay inspired folks!

A Day In Calo Des Moro: Beach Lookbook

Happy Monday ya’ll! I hope you’re doing well. In today’s #OOTD file, I wanted to share with you guys my beach looks from my trip to Calo des Moro, an amazing hidden heaven in Mallorca. Sooo, WELCOME TO MY FIRST EVER LOOKBOOK! Yay!

Before I talk about my outfits, I’d like to tell you a bit about our tiny little adventure trying to get to Calo des Moro. We decided to take the bus from the centre of Palma to get to Santanyi, where we’d get off at the bus stop closest to Cala des Moro. Somehow we ended up missing our stop and we’d gone too far away by the time we realised. We got off the bus at some random stop with absolutely no idea where we were and our phones were unable to give us any directions. So we just kept walking based on our instincts and pretty much got lost in the middle of nowhere. After losing all hope and thinking we got stuck there, we found a petrol station (finally!) and asked for a taxi number. We were literally rescued by a taxi driver who picked us up from the petrol station and took us to Calo des Moro. Turns out, cars can’t go any further at some point and we had to walk down some stairs on the edge of the cliff where there were absolutely no safety precautions taken whatsoever. It was pretty scary, not to mention the fact that we were both extremely hungover!

When we finally made it to Calo des Moro, we were just speechless. It was the most incredible beach I’ve ever seen. I mean just look at the pictures below, wow! It was definitely worth all the hassle.

Anyways, that’s enough information about our scary adventure, let’s get to the lookbook!

Mono spot print maxi dress with front slit (mine is from a local boutique), similar HERE // check out my previous post for the sun hat

I chose this white maxi dress for my first look of the day. It feels so summery and the colour looks really good with a tan. I love the way it hugs my body in all the right places and the open back looks absolutely gorgeous. I paired this dress with my beige sun hat that I love wearing on holiday as it’s such a must-have piece! I chose to wear this outfit on my way to the beach but this dress can also be worn to dinner on a summer evening when paired with ankle strap heels or heeled mules.

Pretty Little Thing red striped bikini top and red striped tie side bikini bottom

My first swimwear choice of the day was this red striped bikini set. I think I first saw it in Calzedonia but I thought it was overpriced. When I saw the exact same bikini on the Pretty Little Thing website at a more reasonable price, I immediately added it to my bag. The top looks beautiful on as it accentuates the abs. The frill detail adds a bit of sophistication while still keeping it young and fresh. The bottom is quite comfortable as it’s easily adjustable. Also did I mention red is one of my favorite colours? It really is the perfect bikini and I’m in love! Right now both the top and the bottom are on sale as well, so I suggest you don’t miss this opportunity!

Oysho gathered trikini

I’m not the one to love the colour black but this piece actually makes me wanna add more black pieces to my closet. What I love about it is that it looks like a beautiful bikini from the back but it’s actually a one-shoulder swimsuit that shows just the right amount of skin. I think this is actually one of my favourite swimsuits as I feel so comfortable swimming in it. In fact, that’s probably one of the most important things that I look for in a swimsuit. I don’t know about you but comfort is a priority for me, especially at the beach. Why give up your comfort just to be stylish when you can have both, right? If you like this swimsuit, it’s actually on sale right now in Oysho so go grab one before the sale ends!

White swimsuit with flowers (mine is from a local boutique), similar HERE

So this one actually has been a popular piece for the past two years and you’ve probably seen it on someone on Instagram. I think it’s sort of become a classic as the flower details at the back look gorgeous! It is really comfortable as well and surprisingly, although it’s white it makes you look quite fit! I got this swimsuit from a local boutique in Turkey although you can find it on La Reveche’s website as well, the original brand that first started selling it. I love wearing this swimsuit but I’ve got so many pictures in it so I decided to sell mine (size 6) on Depop to clear up some space for new stuff! If you’d like to check it out (and also some other items that I’m selling, all in great condition), click HERE.

United Colors of Benetton wooden handle straw tote (no longer available), similar HERE // yellow chiffon beach cover up/pareo (mine is from a local boutique), similar HERE // Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses

I can’t talk about beachwear and not mention my beach bag, right? I got this straw tote from Benetton at the start of the season and it’s been my go-to beach bag ever since! This beautiful shade of green, combined with wooden handles, makes this bag look really chic. It looks quite small from the outside, so you might think it would be really difficult to fit all your stuff into it. However, it’s much larger on the inside and I can fit two large beach towels and all my other beach essentials into it! How amazing is that? Sadly though this exact bag is no longer available but I found a very similar one HERE.

And that brings us to the end of my first lookbook! I hope you all enjoyed it and I’d be very glad to hear what you think about it. I really can’t choose as I love all of them but I think my favourite one would be either look #2 or #3, so let me know which look is your favourite! And until next time, stay inspired folks!
