Hello Salala readers I hope you are all well and not affected from the January blues as much as I am. It's Saturday night whilst I am typing this instead of being out and about. Note sure what's wrong with my usual party animal self but recently she is not really keen on going out. Probably because it is just so cold outside!argh 

Anyhow today I am showing you how to dress-up and dress down a look. (Please insert drumps playing audio here;) 

All you need to do is keep your main outfit simple and comfortable and then play around and be more creative with your accessories . Here I chose an inexpensive striped roll neck from Primark and my everyday black denim jeans from Zara. 

                                                  Dress up Version 
 I thought what can I do to make this outfit look more expensive and elegant? So I went for my long cream coat from Marks & Spencer. I absolutely love the quality and luxury feel of this , but somehow I haven't worn it as much as I would have liked to as due to it's colour sacred it would get easily dirty. Plus when I did wear it I received way too much banter and comments from my friends. I mainly hang around with guys and they certainly don't appreciate any fashion statements haha.  For them this coat is (quote) : "a dressing gown". I hope you girls disagree!!

Moving to the bag, I chose a clutch I purchased last year from Zara sale. I think the circle gold buckle and suede detail gives a sophisticated Chloe vibe. 
For shoes yet again I chose Zara (I promise this post ain't sponsored!) . I picked these up as I was looking for some comfortable but still flattering block heels. I tried them and I was like hmm do I really need them? Then  I checked the price tag (only 12.99) and was like hell ya I do need them.
 I mean they are the perfect nude /pink colour and will suit most of my work outfits. 
( I was on the fence about them as not really sure how they will look with black tights but will try them out and update you.)

                                                  Dress down Version
 I instantly went for my all-white Adidas trainers. If you are a loyal reader of this blog you will probably remember these being on my wish-list for a while. I finally purchased them when I was at Bristol airport whilst waiting for our flight Barcelona. The good thing with airport purchases is they are duty free! 

I also picked up my all time favourite Asos denim cropped borg jacket. This is surprisingly so warm. 

Finally you will have spotted a NYC wool hat (stolen from my bff) and a lovely cream leather backpack. I got it as a present  during Christmas and it's from a brand I hadn't heard before: RI2K London. Are you by any chance familiar with this make? 

    I hope you have enjoyed this post and we will catch up next Sunday. 

In the meantime you can keep up to date through my insta account.

Hello Salala readers. Happy new year to you all. 

Hoping in 2017 I will be able to post and keep in contact with you more often. In the meantime please check out my instagram here as I do update it daily. 

Just a quick catch up I am still living and working in Bristol, I still love playing volleyball and somehow  I have managed to be in a relationship for over a year now.

In terms of new years resolutions: 

1) Travel more
 In 2016 I was fortunate enough to visit Portugal, Iceland, Crete , Dublin and explored more of south of UK such as Devon , Cornwall etc. 

2) Get back into driving
 I actually have a driving licence but somehow I haven't used it at all since I was 18 ( I am now 24). During university I would just commute via train and now my office is next to my flat so haven't really been in need to have a car. But I really want to do "reminder" lessons so I will be able to do some road-trips during summer time. Also means boyfriend will get a break ;)

3) Play different sports more often
  Everyone usually has a #getFitter resolution at the start of they year and for me is all about exploring new sports. I love playing volleyball for Bristol Ladies Division 2  but I find it more challenging to get involved in sports I have never been exposed to before. Badminton, Squash , Basketball etc. 
Will keep you posted.

Now let's have a look at an outfit that is definitely out of my comfort zone. 
But hey new year new me?

          Dress: Missguided (now on sale)
     Roll-neck : Zara (similar) 

Try out wearing lingerie inspired garments with white/black roll necks or t-shirts. 

Thank you for reading. 

Catch up soon. 

New outfit posts every Sunday.

  Let's talk about 5 statement pieces you need to own this season. 

You can't get away this autumn/winter without having an oversized white cosy jumper. This one looks so soft and lush, don't you think? 
Imagine how cool it  would look with blue denim mom jeans and trainers or just with a slip dress (just like the model) with heels for a date night.  

I am sure you have already noticed that embroidered items are taking over all high street shops. From jackets , to skirts to denims. Definitely going to purchase a pair and join this girlie trend. 
ZARA link 

Every year I end up going to four or five different Christmas meals ( work , friends , volleyball team , family etc. ) I am guessing this year would not be any different so I am already considering possible looks and outfits. This satin pleated dress would be ideal for such occasion. It's just so dreamy and fits right into my obsession for anything pink and silky. 
ASOS link 

I really don't know how I still don't own a pair of white adidas trainers. These ones are literally everywhere and fashion bloggers swear by them.

I really don't need to justify this. C'mon you still haven't purchased a choker? It elevates even a simple white tee and jeans outfit.

I know you are probably trying to recover about the fact summer is over and your tan is fading or non existent at this stage (especially if you live in UK) but I am sure a winter wardrobe shopping spree will help you recover. 

Thank you for reading.

Hello Salala people currently on the sofa chilling whilst typing up this post.I have to admit it has certainly been hectic the last couple of weeks.I honestly cant recall the last Sunday that I just chilled and did nothing as I have been so busy with volleyball tournaments, work events, camping , drinking,parties and festivals !!

But today I just said to myself L.A (my nickname) today you are doing absolutely nothing. To showcase how busy I have been I only just managed to watch the last episode of Game of thrones. YES THATS 7 DAYS LATER AFTER INITIAL RELEASE!!

Anyhow here we have a few snaps of me and my dog chilling in my mums lovely garden. Enjoy and talk to you all soon xx

Hello lovely Salala people. Today I have a collective outfit post for you all.

Monday : A-line plitted skirts are my go to look for work. Ladies this could be your ideal yet still professional alternative to your tight fitted business skirts. Especially during summer season we don't want to be uncomfortable whilst sitting at our desks.Do we? Forgot to mention total outfit from Primark.  

Tuesday: After work I managed to go to a concert with my best friend Gemma.We saw James Bay!! I chose a carefree playsuit from Primark and paired it with heeled sandals (for that extra height to have a clear view of the stage) from Asos.

Wednesday : Business gear had to be on as I had an important meeting .This outfit is like my armour makes me feel so confident. The flared pants are from Zara. 

Thursday: Date night with my man involved a girlie dress from tkmaxx paired with comfortable sandals. Simplicity always wins.
Friday : Post work drinks had to involve my favourite statement jacket from Zara.Honestly haven't stopped wearing this. If you are not really keen on this colour ,dont you worry as it is also available in black,pink and baby blue. 

Thank you for reading and don't forget  my daily looks are available on Instagram @lwraann.
Go and check them out and leave a comment so can follow your blog.

Hello Salala people and welcome to a "what I wear to work" post!  

 All the ladies that work in a corporate environment know that sometimes is really hard to deviate from the boring grey and black looks. Thus the Salala Way is suggesting A-line knee length skirts with prints. Pair it with a simple white blouse , your comfiest work heels and you are ready to rock another day in work looking very stylish. 

As always thank you for reading!! 

Big high five to me since I managed two posts in one week ..

Hello Salala people I hope you are well!! 
Long time no post I know and I don't even have a good excuse (other than work has been hectic)
I really admire bloggers that are able to have full time jobs and add new post regularly.
I can hear my little critical voice saying maybe "you should be more organised laura-and less alcohol please!!" ..oops.
Anyhow , to catch up the last couple of weeks I have been spending my weekends away camping with some people from my volleyball club. Yes me the girlie girl camping and sleeping in a tent. I never ever ever ever ever (do I need more "evers?") thought I will enjoy camping. But somehow I just love the simplicity. You wake up outdoors and just relax and appreciate nature and in the night time you end-up dancing wearing just a hoodie around the fire.  
So Salala people if you haven't been camping yet go for it!! 

With regards to looks today I am wearing my latest Zara Bargains.

I haven't been out shopping for ages but when I saw these two items I was like I gotta have them. This floaty flowery top is so me and the backless finish is definitely a bonus.The fact that I have small boobs means I can pull it of without even wearing a bra. 
The a-line skirt I know from now I will be wearing it to death. It's the ideal length and very flattering for any body type. Dress it-up with strappy heels, statement earrings  and a simple white blouse or dress it down with trainers and a printed top. 

Aw and they only cost £9.99 each!! 

Well thank you so much for reading and don't forget to:

Hello Salala people hope you are well!! I wish I was at Coachella 2015 wearing my raybans, levis shorts,some flowers on my head and partying under the sun whilst trying to get a glimpse of Kylie and Kendall ha. 

But heyy I am not one of the lucky festival people. 
So to forget  I am indulging in a new outfit.

 I definitely love bargains so I could not possibly ignore the ASOS 50% flash sale!! And neither should you.

Yet again I could easily spend loads however this time I have a plan and I am looking for something particular : 
the perfect black night out dress. 

 Good news you will not have me moaning  as I have found not one but three different killer dresses and all for under £22!!

Hello lovely Salala people. Today we are talking about 'The haircut' everyone seems to be going crazy about. I am sure you have all noticed - and if you haven't I bet Kim K has made you to pay attention- that the haircut of the moment is definitely a medium one length (just above the shoulders) bob. 
It is such a shame I had exactly the same look 1 year ago!!! Grrr why does it have to be in fashion now!!

I recently had a haircut but it's the first time ever that I have managed to grow my hair relatively long thus you will not see me sporting this look any time soon.
 However that doesn't mean I don't like seeing it on other people as
  it's such a refreshing, youthful and versatile look. Plus ideal for the summer season that is creeping up as its so easy to keep up.

Let's see how fashionistas and celebs are keeping up with this trend.  

The length of my hair at the moment 

So Salala people if you wanna a change chopping of your hair is what you should do as a true fashionista!!

I am Currently watching the newest episode of The Only Way is Essex (ie TOWIE) haha. 

Take care, have fun and enjoy your week
