Los Angeles: A Snapshot

So I'm back from my trip to the US, more specifically Los Angeles. I didn't really have much time there to enjoy many of the sights but what I did see I really enjoyed! In this post I am basically just showing some snapshot images of my time. I had some great views of palm trees and ate some great meals (and some 'not' so nice plane food!) on my journey, which I photographed.
As for the outfits I wore I lived in an elasticated crop top and my high waisted shorts. They were just so comfy and the black top suited almost everything and looked great (I think!). My shoes were not so great. They were my leopard print, Dune London pair and looked great however as they were new I got major blisters which lasted forever! They were so painful so I've had to abandon them to the back of my cupboard until the blisters heal fully! I must have used 10 packs of Compeed blister pads! Los Angeles was a great place to shop for new clothes and outfits, I bought a G by Guess handbag I love and Michael Korrs sunglasses which were really cheap!

One of my fondest memories was when we went to Disneyland, there was the 60 years anniversary celebrations being held and so everywhere was decorated in blue and silver flags and diamonds. We spent the whole day there and we didn't even see it all! I would recommend it to everyone no matter of how old you are - I probably saw more adults and teenagers than there were children!
Overall Los Angeles was a great place and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a hot, fun filled holiday!

The Plaid Shirt

Happy first day of summer! I have to admit it isn't feeling like it yet in the UK (*crying).
Today I want to talk about a reoccurring piece in my wardrobe. It is also one of my favourite pieces, which has to be the Plaid Shirt. I first idolised Plaid Shirts when I saw the Olsen Twins wearing them back in the early Noughties. Since then I have acquired a couple of them which I regularly wear, plaid just goes with anything! They can be worn to look quite smart with a black skirt or can be 'chucked' over the top of any outfit for casual 'cool' which I am demonstrating here. I love the red checked type, I am wearing two kinds below however they look quite similar. One of mine is a UK size 18 from New Look (a larger size than I usually take) which is great because it looks oversized on me, you can achieve the same by buying a shirt that is a number of sizes bigger than your usual clothing size. It is also really long which is great to pair with leggings in the winter (I am tall so getting long shirts isn't always easy!) although as you can see a checked Plaid Shirt can as easily be worn in summer and looks fantastic for both seasons (to my mind).
