Pacific Life Trend & Shop² App!


Topshop’s Pacific trend looks at incorporating palm and leaf prints to turn any basic look to suit the tropical trend. This summer trend looks at bright colours, tropical prints and laid back silhouettes! When you think of the Pacific life, think sunny beaches, BBQ parties and lounging poolsides!

Add a print to any two-piece to create the perfect summary look. The shirt adds print to both outfits worn loosely over the top; one top tip is to wear the shirt unbuttoned as a throw over light weight jacket. Complete any look by adding an orange lip (very on trend!) and an oversized pair of sun glasses – perfect! 

You can gain yourself 2 squares on the Shop² App using the promo code "STACEYCRAIG". The squares can then be used for discount at Topshop once built up. Check out the Shop² App HERE and add them on Facebook HERE to follow their latest activities on this developing new way of shopping on the go!

Purple Crop Top - Look 2 of 3!


Top | Primark £10
Leather Trousers | Topshop (sale)
Faux Fur Coat | Minnie’s Boutique - around £75 (old)
*Trainers | Nike Roshe Runs via USC £70

So, if you’ve been keeping up with my recent posts you’ll know I’m doing a little ‘3 ways to wear’ type post involving this cute fluffy knit crop top – only from Primark. This is my second take on how to style this top, you can catch up with my first one HERE… I will be posting 3 separate looks and then doing a summary where you guys can vote for your fave look.

I decided to include my Nike Roshe Runs from USC in this post, as I’ve had them for a while now but haven’t featured them just yet…  But these trainers, I have literally been living in these at Uni – everyone loves a pair of Roshe Runs, right? I feel like I’m walking on air wearing these, I love them so much that I couldn’t even use them as gym trainers so had to go and spend more money of running trainers just so these wouldn’t get ruined, yes ultimate love here. Bearing in mind these are the FIRST pair of trainers I have owned since I was probably like 12! I’m not a fan of wearing trainers usually, but have totally made an exception for Roshe Runs, and USC offer amazing styles of them too, so check them out!

Packing for your Summer Holidays, the Perfect Way!

The sun is officially shining! Which means this is the perfect time for me to post this, so we can all get a little summer inspiration for this amazing weather!!
It won’t be long now, before thousands of Brits will be flocking overseas for a holiday in the sun, and who can blame them? A week or two on the golden sands of somewhere warm and sunny will always be preferred over our bleak, unpredictable climes, won’t it? Of course, not all of us will be lucky enough to get away this year, but if you are one of those who have bagged a fabulous deal, you’ll be thinking about what to pack in no time at all. 
When it comes to packing your suitcase, there are better systems than others. Pulling everything off the hangers and throwing them all into the suitcase may be a tempting way of packing for your holidays, but if you want to make the most out of the space you have, there are certainly better ways to do it. Whether you’re looking at your maxi dress and wondering which sandals go with it, or you’re trying to narrow down your wardrobe so that you’re not slammed with unnecessary baggage fines, here are some great snippets of advice that will ensure your suitcase is packed, in the most effective way possible. 

  • Check the baggage restrictions before you begin. Know exactly how much you’re allowed so that you’re not faced with a shock once you’re at the check-in desk. Different airlines operate different regulations, with some charging for suitcases regardless of how heavy they are, so make sure you know in advance!
  • Make sure that any liquids you put in your carry-on luggage are stored in a zipped up, plastic bag. It’s far easier to ensure this is all sorted before you’re going through security rather than having your bags rummaged through.
  • Don’t over pack. Make a list of what you’d like to take and try and economise. Use clothes that can be worn more than once, such as a maxi dress from George, or strappy vest tops that can be mixed and matched.
  • Make sure that your suitcase is distinguishable. Traveling without a luggage label would be silly, especially as airlines have a habit of mislaying suitcases. If you have a suitcase that is quite common in appearance, consider adding something personalised to it, so that you can spot it amongst the sea of bags on the conveyor belt with ease.
  • Roll your clothes if you’re not planning on ironing anything once you arrive at your destination. Not only will the garments be less creased, but you’ll also be able to fit more in your suitcase.
  • If you’re travelling with more than one suitcase, consider splitting your things so that essentially, you and your family are sharing each of your suitcases. That way, if you lose one bag, you don’t lose all of your belongings.
  • Double bag your toiletries, just in case the pressure of the aircraft causes anything to leak. Plastic containers can expand in the unpressurised hold, and you don’t want your things to get damaged!
  • Weigh your suitcase before you arrive at the airport – bathroom scales are ideal and can give you an inkling as to how heavy your suitcase is in advance.
Most of all, make the most out of your well-deserved break! Be sensible about how much you take and enjoy every second of the sunshine!  

I’d love to know your summer holiday plans, where is everyone jetting off to? I need to find myself a super cheap holiday too, so any suggestions are welcome :)

Purple Crop Top - Look 1 of 3!


Look 1

Coat | Next (old)
Top | Primark £10
Grey wrap skirt | Topshop £18 (sale)
Knee high socks | George @ Asda
Chunky boot | Office £95
Scrunchie | Primark

This is one of my favourite most recent outfits! I absolutely love the colour combination of this outfit. I think the purple fluffy crop goes perfectly with the pale grey of this wrap skirt- just in love! I do actually have this top in three colours in total (couldn't resist)! They are a real bargain from Primark and look lovely paired with most things. I decided to style this pale purple one in three looks which will be appearing on my blog over the next week, so keep your eyes peeled and tell me which one you like best :)

Motel Cut Out & Faux Fur Jacket!

Top | Motel Rocks £25 (save 20% with code 'Staceycraig')
MOM Jeans | Topshop £40
Fur Coat | Minnie’s boutique - around £75 (old)
Chunky Boots | Office £95
Belt | Urban Outfitters £5 (sale)

I ordered this Motel cut out effect top quite a few weeks ago now but haven’t got round to wearing it until now, but can I add how beaut it is! The top definitely adds a bit of detail to any outfit that involves jeans. I love the cut out detailing on the top- when I saw it; I just had to buy it! I added some major texture to the outfit with this faux fur coat which I did in fact purchase from Minnie’s boutique a long while ago now – possibly even around two years ago. But I'm so glad I kept onto this fur piece now that faux fur is making a massive comeback! 

I do apologise if I look like a major grump in these images, tends to happen quite often haha.

Also, don’t forget to save 20% on your MOTEL purchases by using the discount code ‘STACEYCRAIG’ at the checkout – you can thank me later for making you want everything on their site!
