Pink Pinafore | OOTD | Sitting In The Clouds

Weekends are for relaxing, eating and watching netflix and although I haven’t binged watched netflix in a while, I did have a lovely weekend spent relaxing and eating, along with kicking my a** back in action for my blog (oh how I love my new blog design). On Sunday I went for a pub lunch with my family and met up with my dad’s sister and her family, so my auntie, uncle and cousins. You can’t say no to free food can you? And since the UK is having another mini heatwave, it was definitely not the weather for jeans, even though they have been my go-to recently, in other words I have been super lazy. Throw on a t-shirt and jeans and I’m out the door.

Pinafore | Primark
T-Shirt | Monki

Choker | Forever 21
Shoes | Vans

This outfit is so simple, yet because the pinafore is a pink corduroy material, it just adds something different to the look. Primark have some really good stuff in stock at the minute but I find that if you don’t pick it up as soon as you see it, it’s gone forever. It’s happened to me a couple of times and it’s so disappointing when you can never find the item you have been pining over for so long. Therefore I picked up this pinafore as soon as I saw it, having no idea how to style it. I’m so pleased with how this outfit came out.

The pub lunch was lovely, especially their twist on the Knickerbocker glory desert, and it was lovely catching up with family. We even had a few cocktails in the pub garden afterwards as it was such a lovely evening. However, I was the designated driver so only one Archers and lemonade for me, my go-to mixer.

I really hope this weather lasts through-out the summer as it’s turning out to be a great uni break at the minute. How did you spend your weekend? Let’s chat in the comments.

until next time,

Spring and Simple | OOTD | Sitting In The Clouds

I’m not the most knowledgable person on this planet about fashion, the trends or what’s hot right now. I’d rather spend my money on makeup, books and video games than clothes. Most of the time I throw on a pair of jeans, a graphic tee, my go-to pair of uggs and head out the door. But on occasion I do like the spend some time going through my wardrobe and carefully pick out an outfit for the day.

However, I find it more difficult than usual if we are in those transition months, it’s not warm enough yet to go out without a coat but it is warm enough to wear some lighter pieces. So it’s a struggle for us girls to know exactly what to wear in spring season, especially if you’re like me and based in the UK.

Yesterday the sun was shining, which for me is very deceiving most of the time as you believe it’s going to be warm but most of the time it’s not. However it is spring so I wanted to start pulling some of my more spring/summer pieces out. I adore this jumpsuit but it’s definitely more suited for the summer months. However with some layering I made it more Spring appropriate.

Pairing the jumpsuit with some black tights and a simple black tee underneath allows an extra layer for when it’s a little more chilly outside than you expected. Throwing on a leather jacket, which aren’t the warmest coats in the world, also adds a different texture to the outfit…not necessarily a piece of clothing I would choose to keep me warm but it’s an iconic style piece that everyone should own. It in particular makes this outfit more “edgy”.

I wore this outfit yesterday to see my boyfriend. We ended up having a mini spontaneous day date to Nandos and then to the pub for some drinks to watch Man City V Arsenal. It was the perfect outfit as I didn’t feel too overdressed but also looked like I put in some effort when all I did was put a one piece on and add a few accessories.

I really liked how this outfit came together in the end and I’m excited to try more outfits similar in the future. I just need some spare cash in my purse to buy some new wardrobe pieces…student life.

I hope you enjoyed it and let me know what you think.

Cute and Cosy | OOTD | Sitting In The Clouds


Welcome Back!!! Yesterday I went out to meet my boyfriend when he was on his lunch break at work and also grab my first festive drink of the season. I imagined this really cute outfit to wear and when I actually put it together from the clothes I owned and looked in the mirror, I fell in love with it so I knew I had to share it with you guys.


Top – Primark
Skirt – New Look
Jacket – Primark



Shoes – New Look

My socks peeping through are my Harry Potter, Slytherin ones. I’m a Hufflepuff at heart though. 



Eyes – Morphe 35T palette (first impressions here)
Lips – Revlon Colour Burst in 044 (Sunbaked Baigne)

This outfit defiantly represents my girly side and I’m in love with it. I love the use of colours in this outfit as I’m usually the basic girl of black, white and grey outfits but yesterday I loved the colour combo of maroon and a deep blue/green which both scream autumn to me. You could defiantly dress up this outfit with pairing a leather jacket and a nice pair of heeled booties. However, I went for the casual look and this outfit is actually super cosy and warm. I didn’t feel the chill once when I was out yesterday. I’m defiantly going to be wearing this outfit through-out the winter season now.

until next time,

xoxo, rachel

P.S. I love autumn and winter fashion so I’m hoping to get some more OOTD posts up for you over the next couple of months.

September OOTW

September OOTW | 19th – 25th | Sitting In The Clouds


Welcome Back!!! Today’s blog post brings a “first ever”…everyone gasp. I’ve done outfit posts before but I’ve never done a whole week worth of outfits in one. I had this blog post in mind this past week when planning my outfits so I did try but like every girl, somedays I couldn’t be bothered with my outfit so just threw on a t-shirt and my favourite pair of jeans.

Monday saw just another week starting and another day in the office. However, on Mondays, I feel like you need to try a little harder with your outfit so people don’t think you’ve been a slob the entire weekend and lived in your pjs, which I won’t lie is usually me.


TOP: monki
SKIRT: topshop
SHOES: white vans

Tuesday saw yet another day in the office. I’m currently interning as a graphic designer so as long as we dress “smart casual” and I’m not going to lie, sometimes I push that boundary, we can get away with any outfit. 


TOP: uniqlo (I got it in Disney Springs)
JEANS: topshop
JACKET: primark
SHOES: brown vans (I love vans, could you tell?)

Wednesday. I told you I push the boundaries of “smart casual”. My favourite baseball tee from my recent trip from Disney, classic black jeans and my UGG trainers, it’s defiantly leaning towards the casual side of smart casual. But sat at a desk all day, I just want to be comfy.


TOP: disney baseball tee, mens section 
(Disney Springs – World of Disney)
JEANS: topshop
SHOES: ugg

Thursday gave me a days break from the office as I had my first hospital appointment to attend after getting back from Disney and because my brain is functionally so well, I decided to dress smarter for hospital than I did for work the day before, makes no sense at all. (a few outfit pieces have been repeated here but they create an entire different outfit, that’s why I love the basics)


TOP: monki
JEANS: topshop
JACKET: my sisters wardrobe? (its actually from
topshop and I will defiantly be picking up my own)
HEADBAND: forever 21
SHOES: white vans

I think Friday should be renamed the most casual day in the office. Another really simple outfit this day. One of my favourite t-shirts, paired with my all time favourite jeans, the Joni jeans from Topshop. 


TOP: hogwarts railways (mens section –
harry potter studios)
JEANS: topshop
SHOES: uggs

Finally it’s the weekend but I didn’t photograph Saturdays outfit because to be truthful, I was shooting all the pictures you see above and after I had done, all I wanted to do was change into my boyfriends trackies and my pj top, so that’s what I did. 

However, Sunday saw Tom and I attend FRIENDSFEST (I will have entire blog post on it). We are both major fans of the show. I was luckily enough to attend the first one held in London for a few days last year but as soon as I heard it announced for this year, I just had to get tickets again. This is what I wore…of course I had to wear FRIENDS merch


TOP: primark
JEANS: topshop
SHIRT: forever 21
SHOES: converse

What did you think? Likey, no likey? Let me know your thoughts on my first ever OOTW post. I may start doing monthly ones as I really enjoyed creating this blog post for you guys. Let me know. 

What was your favourite outfit of mine this week? I would love to hear them in the comments. My sister kindly photographed all my outfits for me and her favourite was Sunday’s outfit (she also just started her own blog, lifestyle and travel, if you’re interested, click here)

until next time, 

xoxo, rachel

Pretending It’s Summer | OOTD | Sitting In The Clouds

Follow Me on Bloglovin’

Welcome Back!!! If the sun won’t shine, the clouds decide to stay and the rain won’t go away, I’ll just have make it look and feel like summer with the clothes I decide to wear. I know the UK isn’t known for it’s sunshine but could we at least have a little just so  everyone can at least pretend it’s summer? 


I decided to bring the sunshine to work this week but wearing this gorgeous bright floral off the shoulder top from H&M. I love the colours and print of this top as it’s not your typical floral print and it just screams summer to me. 

Top: H&M

Jeans: Topshop



Although it is summer in the UK, it defiantly isn’t warm enough to wear shorts so I paired the top with some high-waisted jeans from Topshop….aka my go to jeans as I just love the fit of them, I hate jeans that aren’t super tight around the ankles and the Topshop Joni jeans are the only ones I like. 


I love Vans. I have multiple pairs but I decided to complete this outfit with my white ones. But they aren’t  your typical plain white vans. They have a beautiful subtle print on them making them super original. I’ve not seen anyone with these Vans before. 


My boyfriend and I decided to walk down to my local old town to take these OOTD pictures and the memorial garden was decked out with patriotic flower beds since the Queen’s 90th  birthday wasn’t too long ago. 




Outfit Details: 

Top: H&M (Current, should still be in stores)

Jeans: Topshop (do their Joni jeans ever go out of stock?)

Shoes: Vans
