I was really going to be somebody by the time I was 23.

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

A couple of weeks ago the lovely people at New Look contacted me and asked if i'd like to try some items from their Inspire range to create a summer of grunge look. 

I love the New Look inspire range and have a lot of their items and a lot of the things I've bought for holiday are from their.

I'm not sure i'm the grungiest of people, i've never had that phase. The grungist thing I care to admit to us not washing my hair for 4 days. The first thing I went for was a V Neck burnout tshirt. This was £3 in the sale. I love this, it's soft and slightly longer at the back.

I think this is my most casual look, I wore it with my sainsburys boyfriend Jeans and cardie from Tesco. The bag is from TK Maxx and that unwashed mop was covered with my bandana. 

My next outfit was with Plus North in mind. This might be a contender for friday night or saturday day. With the exception of my Primark Necklace I truly am the woman at New Look! 

From the feet up Sandals New Look. I got these on the plus size bloggers shopping day when we went to the Arndale in manchester. 

Jeans T shirt and Kimono all came via the PR team. The Jeans are the Skinny navy jeans and at £14.99 full price they are a bargain. I really struggle with  Jeans but 9 times out of 10 I go for New Look Skinnies. I used to love the NL Hula jeans. This is the third pair of NL skinnies i've had and i doubt they will be the last. They have a good amount of stretch. I got them in the 24 as i'd rather have to belt jeans than have to spend all day breathing in. 

The white Tshirt is a Vest top and came in a two pack. The other one is neon peach / orange. On the website I thought it coral (I didn't read the description) It's not really my colour but I think once i've got a bit of a tan I'll wear it. The vest tops are fairly long which will be great on holiday and good for tucking in. 

My final choice is also with Plus North in mind. I'm a dress kinda girl and almost bought this dress in the blue a couple of weeks ago, but I have the playsuit with this pattern top in the blue. 

Again this might come as no surprise I have a few dresses from New Look in a similar style going back over the past two or three years. I find them really easy to wear and I'm happy wearing them for work, out shopping and on a night out. I know a lot of people like to compartmentalise their lives by clothes but I like my clothes to multi task and i'm not afraid to be seen in the same outfit twice. 

Which is a good job as I wore it twice in one day. I went to a babyshower in the afternoon.

I came home tried on pretty much everything I own and put the dress back on. I added more blusher, change my necklace and my false eyelashes and I was ready for a night out! 

A big thank you to the New Look team for asking me to style these items, It might not be summer grunge but it is very me, I have a New Look order that for my holiday that I will be sharing with you all soon. 

What do you think? Do you like New Look?
