over over sized

I know, the cold weather has finally arrived and I'm already having withdrawal symptoms from the hot weather, any one fancy coming on a hot holiday with me? Like soon..
Top: Zara(sale) // Leggings: H&M // Hat: Topman // Boots: Matalan // Bag:iOffer 
It seemed a bit of a coincidence that on Monday morning as soon as everyone was back at work/college the weather was cold, miserable and wet. And that's why my blog took a little break as I was adjusting to the cold weather and extremely early morning's which my body's not quite used to yet. but finally its the weekend and my outfit post is up!! 
I got this top in Zara a while back for a fiver, and although they didn't have my size I bought it anyway because I knew I would wear it one day. Its a size medium (I'm normally a XS) and there's over sized.. and then OVER SIZED but actually I didn't think it looked to bad with this outfit. I also wore this top to V fest, yano I though all the bright aztec colours would be fab for a festival so I did some weird tie a bobble in the back and tuck it up the back of my bra to make it into a crop top sort of thing and me being all spontaneous and everything it actually looked pretty good. ( I think). I think you all know I'm obsessed with shopping so when I wasn't even planning on buying this hat my will power wasn't helping me out. I just kind of saw it and bought it as I decided that instant I needed a hat for winter and so far I've worn it twice hahaha!! One last thing I've been at college all week and not don a single bit of online shopping- be proud of me people.

All black&& AW13 fashion talk.

A very casual outfit today, black, denim and biker boots. My biker boots which I am so totally in love with- RI you have done me proud. And of course my 'fake' celine bag which I'm still obsessing over even though I'd had it for like a month now..
 Top: H&M / Shirt: Hollister(similar here) / Jeans: Topshop / Boots: River Island / Bag: iOffer 
I'm sort of having a 'black' stage at the minute; I love everything black!! My inner NYC is definitely coming out at the minute. This outfit took me about 2 seconds to put on as I was in a rush and I actually really liked it! I just LOVE this whole shirt round your waist and biker boots thing that's popped into my style recently. I don't know how it happened but I really love it and I feel 10 times more my self when wearing it so yeah its staying for the new season whether its in or not ha ha! 
Although I must say I am loving the tartan for new season, I really really want a tartan shirt to add to my wardrobe, not sure which one yet but I'm sure one will be added to my shopping bag very soon. Black, white, denim & col bolt blue are my colours for new season though, I love every single one! I'm hoping H&M bring out a col bolt blue tank top for new season because for 2.99£ I can't really complain, H&M is my bargain shop this season- I've bough so many of their basic tee's for no more than a fiver and I wear them all the time! So yeah I think I'm ready for new season.. let the cold days begin :(

my london trip.

 The red boots: the red telephone box
 Somerset House
 Matching red
 Loved this wall so much-full of vintage things
waaaaay London haha (me&my dad.)
 another pic of my OOTD.
 Rock of Ages set!! (a bit blurry :((
 Pancake breakfast at Balthazar
 Just pouring a good old British tea- excuse the morbid face.
So yeah I had a lovely time in London for the bank holiday weekend!! We traveled down on Sunday to see some family then went to Central London for Monday&Tuesday! The weather on Monday was gorgeous hence the shorts, Cami top and RED BOOTS! I kinda bought these especially for London as I was planning on wearing an all black outfit with bright red boots and that's what I did! I love the red Celine bag and Red Chloe boots and think they look gorgeous with all black so for £13.99 I got a pair of these fab boots from eBay, yep bargain. (Still wanting a red Celine bag). We went to somerset house for coffee and cake and to sit in the early morning sun on Monday, then to covent garden for a bit of shopping (the beautiful Micheal Kors bag which I didn't buy) and then to Camden for lots more shopping. Camden is literally my favourite place ever in London!! Me & my mum were literally dying to see Mamma Mia at the theater but because my dad and brother literally despise it we went to see Rock of ages instead, and lets just say Mamma Mia would have been 100 times better!! The next day we have a lovely breakfast in covent garden and then some window shopping on oxford street before heading home! It's still safe to say London is my favourite place ever!

off the shoulder

I actually stole this cardigan of my mum, I went for the ' not really caring ' look and thought this cardi would look good slouched off one shoulder as its slightly over sized, yep I like it. 
 Shorts: Topshop / Cardigan: Next / Cami: Topshop / Bag: iOffer / Boots: River Island 
Yes, these shorts are new. And they really shouldn't be new as I have no money and I'm trying to save for a car (ha ha never going to happen) but somehow they ended up in my bag at Topshop for £32! I mean why would I even spend £32 on a pair of denim shorts when we are going into winter practically and I already have a pair. But my others are getting old and shape less cause they've been washed so many times so that's my excuse - I really really really needed a new pair.
I went down to London for the bank holiday weekend; well Sunday- Tuesday actually and this was my travel down/dinner with the family look! We had steak, chicken, sausages and salmon all of the BBQ- my favourite! This is probably one of my more simple outfits as there is not really much to it but I kinda like it - deffo 100 times more with my new boots! Oh did I just say new again- yep a car is not coming my way any time soon!!! 
I've fallen in love with 'biker boots' if that's what you would call them, yano the black ankle boots with all the buckles and zips; yeah those I LOVE THEM! I think they make any outfit 10 times better and are definitely my favourite thing for the new season!!
One last thing, I finally made my own tumblr and would love it if you could follow me or take a look at my page SEVEN HILLS STYLE !! Thank you so much!!

 There was a wall full of all the acts performing!
 In the crowd for RUDIMENTAL (now my favourite ever people they were amazing)
 I think I'm still hyperventilating over HOW BLOODY AMAZING RUDIMENTAL WERE! The fact we were soooo close to the front, and the crowd was HUGE and I mean huge from right to left you could see endless people it was class. The amount of bottles that were being chucked up was ridiculous but heeey isn't that part of the festival experience! When 'Feel the love' came on everyone made a love heart with their hands and omg I had goose bumps the whole time- but now my new favourite song is 'Right here' -I love it!!! 
 Edit on instagram of the Rudimental crowd! had their own tent where they were doing FREE face art so I got some little daisy's down the side of my face to match the ones in my hair. I loved the VERY tent! They also had a free photo booth which was so cute.
Calvin Harris was also amazing!! But I mean WHY would you put Calvin and Kings on Leon on at the same time?!?! I wanted too see both so bad! We stayed at CH for an hour and then ran to KOL and caught Use Somebody, Radioactive and Sex on Fire which was ON ANOTHER LEVEL.. and the best end ever to the best day!! Through out the day we also saw Scouting for girls, John Newman, Tom Odell, Ellie Goulding, and a bit of Rita Ora, Olly Murs and Stereophonic(who looked amazing on TV and I wish I had of seen them all :(! So yeah my 1st festival was sooo good and I can't to go to another!!! Have any of you been to festivals this year?

100 goes to this outfit

The colour is my favourite part about this top, not so much the beads. I mean I love the beads but when putting the top on and taking it off all I hear is beads dropping to the ground and I can never find where they have come from!!
 Top: Topshop // Bag: Ted Baker // Shoes: Primark // Jeans: Topshop(similar here) //
I wasn't even meant to be shopping when I bought this top. I had gone to Meadowhall for a few last minute holiday things and after buying a leather jacket in Zara (sale of course- this is all I can afford) I though well I might as well spend all my savings now and so splashed out on this top! I don't really have 'evening tops' so I justified it like this. I'm so addicted man! I bought it for £36 and now its in the sale for £18, this is another reason I really need a Topshop card but if I get one my debt will be unspeakable & I'm not 18 yet anyway..which could be a good thing.
Now I love these shoes from Primark and lets just say £12 for looking at a pair of shoes every day ain't bad- yep I can't walk in them ha ha!!! I have no hope but I manged to stumble around in them for these photos which is a step forward. 
Oh and this is my 100th post, hence the name :))

tie that denim shirt

 I love these kind of outfits.. shorts, top and a shirt around my waist has been a favorite of mine this 'summer'. I mean I'm sure I used to wrap my jacket around my waist when I was about 5 but my young style has returned to me and I love it.
Shorts: Topshop / Top: Topshop / Shoes: Zara / Shirt: Hollister / Bands: Holiday
This has probably been my most worn outfit this summer and also one of my favourites. I got the top a while back in Topshop but have never really worn it till now; once I paired it with my black shorts( I got these in the sale for a tenner when I was on a spending ban opps) and denim jacket I liked it a whole lot more than when I first bought it hahaha the joys of shopping. Now please don't get me started on my new sandals because I could probably right 4 paragraphs on how much I love them but I wont as you can all see in the photos how gorgeous they are.. yes they are gorgeous ok! I got them just before I went on holiday from Zara in the sale for £30.. I know £30 shouldn't even be classed as a sale price but I did pretty much wear them every evening on my holiday (I really have no holiday/summer shoes) so that makes them about £2 per wear and I'll be wearing them a whole lot more! I lack on the whole shoe game thing, the list of shoes I want it endless but I always end up buying clothes instead and then the list of shoes I want gets longer! 
The suns been shinning today so I've had a lovely day doing nothing- I still have post holiday depression! See ya soon! 
love Caits x
