outfit of the day

Recently I’ve collaborated with TK Maxx on some research that explores how social media influences our personal style and shopping habits. We’re now seeing the rise of the insta- wardrobe, as people look to social media for style inspiration. As someone who is a serial shopper, blogger and all round social media savvy chic, I know this all too well. I think 90% of the things I buy are based on things I see other people wear or talk about online. I can’t scroll thought my Instagram feed without being inspired or influenced by something someone I follow is wearing. I think it’s a really positive thing that we’re open to influences from real people online and not only celebrities. 

TK Maxx is one of the best places to find designer items with super affordable price tags. You can literally pick up things for a fraction of their RRP and it’s a treasure trove of gems. I’ve worked with them to bring you my top look for festival season, I hope you love it! 

For my outfit I decided to choose a loose tank and knotted it at my waist. For bottoms I decided to go with this unique cut out skirt - I love how the floral lace extends past the under skirt so it shows the pattern a little bit more. As footwear I found these sweet leopard skate shoes. Skate shoes are my favourite shoes for festivals purely because they are comfy and cool at the same time. Although with the British weather you may have to pull out the wellies! To accessorise I chose a pair of reflective sunglasses, a very well loved leather jacket and my trusty Fedora. I mean when in the last year have you seen me without one?

Every store has unique stock, so you may not be able to find my exact outfit in store, but I’m sure you’ll find something you love just as much as I like my outfit!

  36. I'm very excited sharing this amazing testimony about how i save my marriage and get my husband back today, My name is Keys Miller,i live in Los Angeles, California, and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with three kids. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband. So terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce,he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband . So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past seven 9 months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly contact Dr Ogudugu if you have any problems,{GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM}. Thanks you Dr Ogudugu, i will always be testifying about your good work.
