Outfit: Tunic Over Wide Leg Trousers

Tunic: Boohoo
Trousers: c/o Boohoo via Fashionchick

This tunic is one of the best things I've bought in a while; only about £15, it completely updates a pair of trousers or culottes and adds a dramatic element to any outfit. I wore this for a night out in York a couple of weeks ago and it went down a treat, with my friends totally shocked that both pieces were from Boohoo - plus, it makes a nice change from a dress or leather-pants-and-top combo.

Outfit: Slim Green Trousers

Sunglasses: ASOS
Top: COS
Trousers: Zara (similar)
Flats: ASOS

This is a go-to outfit for me at the moment when the sun's out, perfect for both the office and the weekend when I'm sick of wearing my skinny jeans. I love that this top is seemingly plain at the front but has this added detail in the back, creating a completely different silhouette. In fact, everything that COS does is amazing in my eyes - real minimal pieces that have a little somethin' about them - I'll be raiding the Regent Street store the next time I'm in London!

Lust of the Week: Mango Midi Dress

I've been checking to see if Mango has my size in this dress on a daily basis because I. am. obsessed. Super simple, it has a great cut and I can imagine it becoming my go-to dress this summer. It's also the kind of dress that could be worn with sliders for day and a pair of strappy heels in the evening. Come on Mango, get some size 8s!

Outfit: Mustard Jumper and Leather Pencil Skirt

Jumper: H&M
Skirt: Warehouse
Flats: Zara (similar)
Sunglasses: ASOS
Amethyst necklace: c/o Coggles
Gold necklace: Moth (similar)

This is an outfit that kind of came around by accident (aren't those ones the best?) when I was getting ready for work one morning and found that tucking the back of my jumper into my skirt created a lumpy bulge that was not cute. Luckily, this jumper has slits down either side so I left the back out and ended up with a nice bit of layering (and you know I love my layers). Talking of which, I've been wearing these gold necklaces together quite a lot recently - I like that they're both really delicate and have similar shapes and add a bit of something extra to an outfit.

Outfit: Midi Dress Over Leather Pants

Dress: ASOS
Trousers: Zara (similar)
Bracelet: c/o Reiss via Fashionchick

This is a combination I find myself wearing quite a lot - it's that time of year when I really want to wear my summer clothes but most days it's too cold to go the whole hog, so layering up different pieces is the only answer. I've paired it with my beautiful new platforms from & Other Stories (actually really comfortable too) which is how I wear this outfit for evening, but I've been wearing it with pointy flats for day too.

Lust of the Week: Finery London Page V-Neck Dress

I first became aware of Finery London a few months ago and have been obsessed with it ever since. For about 18 months (seriously) I'd been looking for a simple, white, loose fit maxi dress with a great cut and it seemed impossible to find - until I found about Finery and it had exactly what I wanted. I quickly snapped it up (it'll be on the blog soon) and have been wracking up more bits on my wishlist pretty much on a weekly basis. It's a minimalist's dream, with pieces that are really simple yet well-structured. It's also really accessible - this dress, for example, is only £45 but it looks way more expensive. I've got a feeling I'm going to be spending a lot more time on that site...

Outfit: Obi Belt Dress with Crossbody Bag

Dress: ASOS
Bag: c/o Matt & Nat
Sandals: Zara (similar)

I seem to be getting obsessed with the obi belt - what with last week's outfit post and this ASOS dress this week. There's something so easy about this trend though and I feel like it's quite an understated one this season, so I'm going to roll with it. Any sign of sun and warmth at the moment and I'm using it as an excuse to get my legs out, so I've ditched the tights and paired it with a classic pair of buckled sandals. This beautifully crafted crossbody from Matt & Nat  adds an injection of colour to the outfit, plus it's made from vegan, sustainable materials so it sits well with the old conscience and makes up for the fact that I've just added another piece to my wardrobe...

Outfit: Dress Over Culottes

Dress: COS
Culottes: c/o M&S via Fashionchick
Clutch: Gift (similar)
Heels: ASOS

Something I love when it comes to style is playing with lengths and pairing unexpected pieces of clothing together. Popping a dress over culottes creates a long, streamlined and slightly oversized silhouette, and breathes new life into both pieces.

These linen culottes from M&S (can you believe they're M&S?!) are the latest to be added to my culottes collection and are really versatile and easy to wear; perfect for Spring when it's still a bit too cold to go for completely bare legs.

Lust of the Week: Missguided Suede Bodycon Dress

Suede is one of - if not the - fabric of the season. Not surprising, given the 70s is this year's biggest trend, but it's also refreshing seeing it used in more minimalist clothing too. This Missguided dress is one of those pieces that could easily become a wardrobe staple, dressing it either up or down depending on the occasion.

Outfit: Coat-turned-dress

Coat (worn as dress): New Look (similar)
Belt: Vintage (similar here and here)
Clutch: Marc by Marc Jacobs at Coggles
Flats: Zara (similar)
Sunglasses: ASOS

Hi, my name's Angharad and I'm a shopaholic. Shock, right? My wardrobe has reached the point where it groans under the weight of clothes and I've had to source another wardrobe just to house my coats and jackets. So I'm trying to steer clear of all shops and use what I've already got, which means it's time to get creative (this will probably last about five minutes but it's fun for now). 

It's that time of year when I start to get sick of wearing coats and jackets, but they're still completely necessary. The answer? Turning my trusty black duster into a dress by wrapping it around and fixing in place with a belt. Not only does this give new life to one of my wardrobe staples, but it conveniently fits in nicely with the whole kimono/obi belt this spring/summer. This week I'm recreating this look on Farfetch's Google Plus page - click here to check it out!

Interiors: Styling a Fireplace

Print: Not on the High Street (IKEA frame)
Lantern: IKEA
Small bowl: Broste Copenhagen
Larger bowl: Moth
Candle: Biba c/o House of Fraser via Fashionchick

A few months ago I left my life in London for a new one back up North, and while moving was a bit of a  ball ache, it was also a chance to create a new space and put all of my hours spent on Pinterest to good use. I got rid of a load of stuff - the local charity shop did very well that week - in an attempt to streamline my possessions and realise my dream of being uber-cool and minimalist (just don't mention the overflowing wardrobe and piles of shoes...), and while that may not quite be the case, I'm happy with the new space I call home. 

I live in an old Victorian house which means I get this beauty of a fireplace in my bedroom. It doesn't function anymore and for some reason is full of stones (I'm telling myself it's all part of the charm) but I love it all the same and have added a few bits to make it more style feature, less falling-apart-old-fireplace. 

First off, I've got my London print because I love that city and it's nice to bring a piece of it back with me. The frame got a bit scratched in the move (more rustic charm?!) but it'll do for now. 

Second: evidence of my obsession of bowls. I don't know how many Sophie Conran x Portmeirion bowls I have lying around, purely for decorative purposes. These two are from Broste Copenhagen and Moth, a gorgeous little shop in West Didsbury, Manchester, that sells homeware bits, jewellery and accessories. 

And finally, candles and fresh white roses because they look pretty and smell nice.

Lust of the week: ASOS Co-ord with Pom Poms

ASOS Co-ord (top here, shorts here)

Next month I'm popping over to Greece (cue panic workouts and bread banishing) and I'm not ashamed to say that most of my spare time is taken up with holiday wardrobe planning. On one of my virtual window shopping trips, I came across this co-ord from ASOS and fell in love. I love how light and simple it is - it'll be perfect for throwing on over a bikini or wearing during the day to explore the local towns and villages.

Outfit: Side Split Maxi Dress

Dress: H&M
Flats: ASOS

Last weekend I popped into H&M and was so impressed with what was on offer; in the past couple of years I feel like it's really upped its game, but this season more so than usual. Normally I go in and maybe see two or three things I like but this time I'd say there were a good nine or ten things I would have happily walked out with. And this was in the Liverpool store which isn't exactly huge. Snaps for H&M! 

Anyway, I managed to control myself and only went for this dress. It's rare that I find a maxi dress that can be worn with flats (or is this supposed to be midi?!), and I love that this one adds a bit of glamour into everyday clothing.
