why I’m loving River Island

It’s become the most awkward time of the year in many ways…

  • Is it going to snow, AGAIN? 
  • Why is it almost March and I haven’t got my shit together?
  • Where has all this extra weight come from?
  • WTF is Vero?
  • Will Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker ever be friends?

Therefore online retail therapy/virtual window shopping is the only solution, obviously.

I have been LOVING River Island recently, and not just because I managed to bag the colour of the season in a beautiful chunky knit for only £17! But because they’re just getting everything so right, aren’t they?

So here’s a few things I am loving right now, perfect for this confusing AF winter.

Dark grey button bell sleeve shift dress  Shop all dresses

I adore the simplicity of this dress

I’ve been trying to steer clear from darker colours and brighten up my wardrobe, but the bell sleeves and adorable tortoise-shell styled buttons are adorable. I’ve seen it in store and the fabric is incredibly soft, and I love any clothing that hangs off me rather than fitted! Perfect   with some tights and knee high boots, and I love the baker boy the model is werkin’ too, MARVELLOUS!

 

Orange tie front loose blouse  Shop all tops

YES. I. AM. ALL. ABOUT. WEARING. ORANGE.

Isn’t the optimum night out outfit jeans and a nice top? I am not about that short dress and heels life…

As I’m a bit self-conscious at the minute about my muffin-top, the tied front is a yes from me. This would look perfect with jeans or tucked into an a-line skirt, I would even rock this under a pair of dungarees. I’m all about a high-neck – especially because I am the coldest person you’ll ever meet (temperature wise) so to me, this blouse just has everything going for it. It comes in other colours too, you should definitely check it out.


Croc block heeled mules
shop all shoes & boots

I am IN LOVE with these yellow mules!

I know the yellow ones might not be for everyone so I’ve shown an example of the black too, but how incredible are they?

The slip on heel is a win for me. My feet always feel like they’re trapped in heels, If you have claustrophobic feet like me then mules will soon become your best pal 2k18. The burst of yellow on these will brighten anyones day that has the fortune to see you struttin’ your stuff. I love that you can wear a sock with mules too, any excuse to show off my fabulous collection, especially the abundance I just received at christmas! (shoutout to ma Frost fam)


Red woven straw stripe fringe slouch bag
shop all bags & purses

Yes, I want a woven bag in winter

The colours of this bag are gorgeous, the only part I’m not too crazy about is the white attachment on the front. Why is that there? Anyway, the chain design adds a golden detail to the overall warm palette that I am loving! I get vintage vibes from this bag, and it’s an absolute steal for £38! The fringed hem is just adorable, and I really like that only the front panel is woven, giving it that edge. Gotta love ya RI ❤
