Shirt: Zara
Cardigan: Zara
Necklace: H&M

I picked this shirt up from Zara last weekend and I really love it, it’s so versatile and goes with so many things. The cardigan is a wraparound in grey that i also bought in black. I had a similar one from H&M from a couple of years ago that I wore so much that its poor life ended after much love. The necklace is one that I’ve featured on here before, it’s a really cool coin charm necklace from H&M. There seems to be a Zara/H&M theme going on here….

Following on from my post last night showcasing those goooooorgeous necklaces from Pinterest I felt inspired as I got dressed this morning. I have on my H&M coin necklace (underneath) and my Zara necklace (also the one everyone raved about because a certain Kate Middleton wore it, yawn.). Both are available to buy now both online and in stores.

LONDON FASHION WEEKEND

So yesterday I attended London Fashion Week with some friends from my Fashion Journalism course at uni, and we had such a good time. We arrived at Somerset House for our dedicated 1pm-4pm slot and started off with a bit of shopping….. By bit I mean a lot. I bought myself two Balmain t-shirts, two Wishlist London necklaces and a Tasha Metcalfe necklace crafted from a real pigeon’s foot!

We also watched the London Fashion Weekend trend fashion show presented by Vodafone, which we were front row for. All the photos from it are on my Instagram @_hannahstocking but here’s a couple of my favourites:

I really enjoyed myself yesterday, even if my bank balance is crying out for help! Being a student isn’t easy. Taking after Carrie Bradshaw, I’d rather buy Vogue than dinner.

PHOTOS: MY HOLIDAY IN ALCUDIA.

I had such a fab time in Alcudia, Majorca that I thought I’d share my Instagram photos on here! I stayed at the Hotel Maritimo in Playa de Muro which I would highly recommend if you are looking on going for a relaxing break there. The hotel was great, food was amazing and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful or attentive.

Here’s a small collage of photos from my week in Alcudia, 27th June – 4th July. I’ll do another post on the things I bought whilst I was there!

SURPRISING NEW LOOK.

It has to be said, I’ve never really been a fan of New Look. In the small town where I live, the only “good” shop is a teeny tiny New Look and because of that, when I was at school everyone used to wear the same thing. Now I’ve never been one to conform (I cut all my hair off, and I mean ALL of it when I was 9 or 10) and so New Look just never appealed to me. However lo and behold, the tables have turned. I don’t know who is in charge of designing the jewellery at New look at the moment but they’re doing a damn good job of it!

I was browsing Pinterest one day last week, as usual, and I came across this photo:

I thought to myself “Wow! That necklace is to DIE FOR!” Thinking it was going to probably be about a gazillion pounds I repinned it as I do with every other dreamable item I see on there and didn’t think about it any more (for fear of subequently becoming severely depressed at how poor I am). It wasn’t until that evening when I sat down with my mum and showed her it that she said “I saw that in New Look!”. Not believing her, she made me go on the website and look for it and guess what? It was bloody there! And only £20!!! As I scrolled down the pages and pages of jewellery, there was surprisingly, very few (if any) that I DISliked!

So here is my selection of favourites of ethnic/tribal style pieces from New Look’s current season, as you’ll see they’re such affordable yet effective pieces! I’ll DEFINITELY be adding some to my already mountainous collection!
