Topshop - Tee-clutter Edit

Who feels Topshop is too young for them? And who on the other hand still shops there?
I'll be honest, after giving birth to my son and having turned 30 a few months before that, I thought this is it...no more Topshop! Was Topshop too young for me?

In fact, it wasn't and instead I was in a style rut and confused on what a 30-year-old mother should be wearing. It took me a while to get back into my style and start loving fashion again. Topshop was definitely one of those shops that made me think ''am I too old for this store now?!' However, it was the one shop that I could go to for my basics and always had what I was looking for.

Yes...it does get perceived as a brand that is 'too young', but I guarantee there is always something that will catch your eye no matter what your age. Topshop is my go-to place for most things, even for a night out (yep those rare ones), probably the first shops on the high street I go to. I want to show my followers that you don't have to be 'young' to shop there and there are plenty of options in the store.

As it's the festive season, I thought I would put some looks together that are ideal for a night out/work party or Christmas dinner but also wearable after too.

Topshop is also great for shoes and accessories, I could spend hours at the Oxford St flagship store just admiring and trying on everything!

Wish List

Christmas is around the corner, if you're clueless to what you want this year, my never-ending list might help you? I love all things fashion and beauty so below I have put down my favourites.

Beauty: I have been testing out the Emms Hardie cleanser and loving it so far, so that's definitely one to get. The purifying glow mask I've tested a sample of and have been meaning to buy one but haven't had the chance. I'm not big on makeup but heard loads of positive reviews about the Eyeko brand. And red nail varnish, well you cant go wrong, can you!

1. Cleansing Balm
2. Mask
3. Nail Varnish
4. Eye makeup

Fashion: The fashion list could possibly go on a lot longer but here are a few things I have had an eye one for a while. The trousers look perfect on this model, not sure how it will look on me but I love it! I think it will look great with the jumper and Vans. The cardigan is cute and will look lovely with denim. And finally the purse, well why not!

1. Purse
2. Cardigan
3. Trousers
4. Sweatshirt
5. Trainers

Miscellaneous: I have wanted this necklace for ages now, perfect for layering. The chole perfume is an old time favourite of mine, love the smell. The candle is just something that will smell nice and look pretty in your home. The book is by Aimee Songs, a blogger and probably one for fashion bloggers and finally, the small bracelet is a cute accessory that fits in well with my simple style.

1. Necklace
2. Book
3. Candle
4. Perfume
5. Bracelet

Happy Shopping, hope some of the things have given you some ideas.

Statement Knitwear


All images from Pinterest

Winter is definitely around the corner, the days are getting colder so cover up in those cosy jumpers till Spring. Basic wasn't even an option when it came to knitwear on the catwalks, it was all about the statement knitwear.

The bright coloured knit below would definitely make a statement, it would also look great with a plain skirt or dress, team it up with boots or trainers. 

Jumper, Bag, Jeans, Boots

I have the below blue jumper from H&M, a perfect Christmassy jumper which can be worn year after year. The below knitwear are jumpers that may not be a big statement but still stands out. Sometimes a none patterned jumper can make a difference too, it could be the sleeve detail, details of the neckline, the stitching or material. Let the jumper do the talking!

H&M, Topshop
ASOS, Topshop

Or why not go for some wardrobe essentials with a twist. We have leopard print, stripes and a grey jumper! Your basic grey or black jumper can make a statement too by how you wear it. You can make them a little different by rolling the sleeves up, tucking it into jeans or even adding some accessories like layered necklaces, iron-on patches, badges or brooches?

If you fancy spending a little more, check out the below gorgeous jumpers, I've added this to my 'in my dreams wish list'.

70's Trend

The 70's decade had so much going on when it came to fashion, there's definitely something for everyone. Flares were huge there was no doubt about that, but what else made the 70's stand out? Denim, suede, maxis, florals, platforms and sheepskin were just some to name a few. I loved the colours from the decade, especially the burnt oranges, mustards and browns.

When you're styling this trend, it's good to mix and match to make it more modern. All the below looks have a 70's feel, but still versatile and can be worn again in a different way.

If there's one thing to buy for this trend, it's denim. Flares are flattering and do come in fashion time after time, however, if it's not for you consider cropped bottoms or if anything a denim shirt. A denim shirt will last for years, the double denim will work for a 70s vibe.

Some of my favourites from the high street below:

Corduroy

L-R: Cord Jumpsuit, Cord Dungarees, Cord Jacket

Denim

L-R: Denim shirt, cropped jeans, lace up cropped jeans 

Some others: 

1. Trousers, Top 
2. Skirt
3. Shirt
4. Top
5. Dress
6. Coat

Happy Shopping!
