OOTD - Victoria Quarter Special with

Hello blog! It's been a while, hasn't it? With deadlines and exams looming I've gone with an all-or-nothing approach to my blog and the latter has been my attitude over the past couple of weeks. I didn't want to post things I wasn't passionate about just for the sake of posting and I hope you agree that that's a good attitude to have towards my corner of the web. 

Last week I was luck enough to be involved with a fundraising event for the Emma Maltby Memorial Fund (but more on that later...) and beforehand the lovely Val from offered to take some photos of my outfit. The event was held in the Victoria Quarter in Leeds, somewhere Val had always wanted to shoot whilst being on exchange here from Melbourne.

My boyfriend jacket is from New Look as some of you may already know from previous posts and on this occasion I decided to team it with some printed joggers and a plain crop top. These joggers are from Dorothy Perkins and I was lucky enough to grab them the other week for 30% off! Major bargain alert! The top is a Topshop must-have. At only £8 a piece, I ended up buying it in black too! It has a slight ribbed effect too it which is really pretty and gives it an edge that plain jersey tees don't tend to have! 

I'm absolutely loving New Look flats at the minute and this pair are in their £7.99 range. They have lots of different colours and they are the comfiest shoes I have ever worn. My bag is my old-faithful from Ted Baker and the reason I love this bag so much is because of how perfectly it matches my Michael Kors watch! My parents bought me both for a Christmas a couple of years ago. My Mum said that she felt she couldn't get one and not the other - no wonder I am such a shopaholic!

My pretty little hair bow was just £4 from Topshop and I'm obsessed with it. I loved it for this outfit as it ties in the colour of my nails, Lagoon by NV Colour, my I Wish lipstick from the 1D for MUA range and my shoes! Turquoise and pink are my favourites at the minute and this outfit is very much inspired by that.

What I'm Wearing:
Hair Bow - Topshop - £4 (linked to hair accessories as can't find the exact bow!)
Bag - Ted Baker - £250
Watch - Michael Kors - £250 (linked similar and cheaper)

Are you a fan of this laid back look? 

I'd like to thank Val for taking these photos for me - I love them so much - they're the best you'll ever see on this blog for sure!

Do check out - it's such a brilliant blog and their photos are fantastic. 

Love, Steph xxxx
