the yoko factor ♥

My Rhodesian Ridgeback weighs roughly 9 stone and was originally breed in Africa to hunt lions - with this intimidating information it puzzles me that as soon as she hears thunder, she jumps onto my lap with her tail between her legs. Yes, my dog Kaya has been breaking all my bones this morning from being a little scaredy cat. Apart from this, I'm still trying to sort my room out and make it look more um...bedroomish. Last night I wrapped my duvet around me and watched more Criminal Minds and the 1995 film Dangerous Minds that starred Michelle Pfeiffier. I know I need some time apart from Agent Hotchner and the rest of the gang but I'm seriously addicted to it! I've just made a tuna salad - I feel slightly guilty for eating pizza two days in a row... Trying to eat healthy sucks -_- I really want this weather to have more sun involved! I'd feel more summery if the sun was out, I'd love to be able to blog outside but I don't really see this happening though. Anyway, lets get on with the outfits today - I wanted to feature the white bustier top simply because I think it will go with any outfit. We all know I have a strong appreciation for fringed shorts as well (or as I call them - 'shakey shakey pants').

I'm pretty impressed with the black ones from River Island. As usual, these outfits are simple but glam with huge inspiration from Kim Kardashian. I love how she wears bold blazers with simple fitted shorts and tops. The Suede black studded bag is perfect for adding texture to this look without being too overbearing. Both of the blazers are actually from Topshop and when I was at uni I obviously couldn't afford to spend money in there, so I was Primark bound. Now I've actually got the yellow blazer I can really see the difference. The quality of the fabric and the way the blazer is fitted really does show how amazing Topshop are. I really recommend starting a blazer collection if you don't already - they literally add glamour to any outfit and can add a touch of class without stealing the attention away from the main dress or top etc. For the second outfit, the skirt was £15 from H&M - I'm not too sure if they still sell it but there are hundreds on ebay. I had to include the Runway Red lipstick by MAC - definitely a great way to make your outfit stand out! Finally there is the Chanel Lambskin Maxi Single Flap Black. If I ever win the lottery, this will be the first item I buy. I remember seeing one of the women at Red magazine have one, my eyes were constantly admiring it. So what do you think? Do you think the clothes are too glam or do you think the blazers and accessories tone it down? Has anyone else had a Chanel bag drool moment? haha ;) Hope you're all having a good week! ♥
