#WIWT #OOTD May Outfit Round-Up

.

Below is a round-up of some of the outfits worn in May, from photos posted on my Instagram (@jonesloves).  Dressing in Sydney is a little difficult, as it tends to be quite cold in the mornings (by cold I mean 14 degrees, however feels more like 8 – I’ve somewhat acclimatised!) and then hots up nicely throughout the day.

…And some things that I’ve gathered from these outfit posts –  I’m pretty in love with my new hat, I love a good garage sale bargain – and I definitely need to invest in some more pairs of Topshop Jamie Jeans – my favourite wardrobe staple.

Winter Wear #WIWT #OOTD

So, as you can see I’ve gone for the chop.  I wanted a lot cut off (I had a horrible amount of dead ends) and I did like my long locks, but after catching sight of them in the mirror/on photos, I came to the realisation that rat’s tails were not a good look – chop it off and start again. I now have an Alexa Chung style ‘lob’ and it’s going to take some getting used to but I’m starting to appreciate the healthy look.

I would highly recommend Benjamin Ryan Hair & Beauty who cut my hair. They’re based in the Great Western Arcade in Birmingham… a beautiful salon in the oldest, cutest shopping arcade in Birmingham, and Ben (of Benjamin Ryan) did a fantastic job.  You can check out their website here…

It’s getting SO cold, and I’m putting to good use my new coat purchases. After all, the cost per wear is immeasurable when worn everyday. A few coats are my staple must-have items, several good investments.  Here are a selection of my outfits from the previous month…

Kate Moss for Topshop Blazer, Topshop Skinny Jeans, Indian Necklace, H&M Boots

Topshop Coat, Marks & Spencer Jumper, Topshop Skinny Jeans, Urban Outfitters Boots, H&M Statement Necklace

H&M Leather Boots

H&M Contrast Sleeve T-Shirt, Handmade Tailored Leather Skirt, Michael Kors Watch

Next Coat, H&M Striped Jumper, Zara Skinny Trousers, All Saints Boots

Topshop Skinny Jamie Jeans, Topshop Jumper, Stylist Pick Boots, All Saints Bag, MAC Russian Red Lipstick

ASOS Parka Coat with Leather Sleeves, ASOS Dress, Stylist Pick Boots, Tights, Indian Necklace

H&M Roll Neck Top, Topshop Skater Skirt, H&M Statement Necklace, Next Patent Flat Shoes

Topshop Tweed Boyfriend Coat, French Connection Boots

Recent Outfits… #WIWT #OOTD

.

Here are a few outfits I’ve worn over the past few days – with winter looming, I expect the new ‘WIWT’ blog post may include faux fur and winter coats.  In fact I’m in need of a new warm coat – and I’ve got a few I’ve got my eye on, keep your eyes peeled for the next post in which I’ll be selecting my top choices of winter coats.

I post my outfit looks on Instagram, so if you fancy following my name on there is also ‘@jonesloves.’

#WIWT (Instagram Outfit Pics)

.

I apologise for the lack of blog posts of late, I’ve become pretty addicted to the gym and I’m prepping for the launch of JonesLoves Styling.  I go on holiday on 12th July and I’m determined to get myself a bikini body (bulk up slightly and grow a bottom!). This year I intend to not look at photos and cringe at the sight.  It’s a slow and gradual process and I hope the visable changes kick in next week because they haven’t as yet and it’s really hard work going to the gym 5 times a week! However, I intend to keep it up, for I have more energy, better skin and a bigger appetite.

My online personal shopping company launches when I return so at the moment it’s go go go to make sure I have everything ready… and in between all of this I need to consider my wardrobe.

With the holiday (and a brand new body to boot, *ahem*) in mind, I have added a few select pieces to my wardrobe.  I’ve gone for neons (post coming soon) and sorbet blouses, as well as a few choice vintage items. I’ve ordered quite possibly the best swimming costume I’ve ever seen but i’m going to keep that quiet until it arrives.  Apparently it best fits someone under 5ft 4″ and I’m pretty sure I’m pushing my luck being just over 5ft 8″.

For now I’ll leave you with a few Instagram #WIWT posts for June.  Please bear in mind that due to June’s horrendous onslaught of rain, my outfits look like they should have been worn in AW11.
