Day 1 outfit – When on holiday and being a bit of a tourist, I always like to wear something comfy as well as something that’s going to keep me cool. So I tend to wear something simple like denim shorts and a nice top or a floaty dress. On our first day I opted for wearing a swimsuit as a bodysuit incase we came across any nice beaches etc.

I LOVE a high waisted bikini due to how flattering it sits when worn, the only down side is that they are not the best tanning bikinis, however they are a go to if you’re going to any beach clubs or events. The nice thing about this bikini is that it was bought separately and there are lots of styles which can suit various body types.

Pink Velvet bikini – ASOS ( bought as separates)

So the same as before I decided to wear a swimsuit as a bodysuit incase we came across any hidden gems whilst walking about the different islands.

Im a huge fan of the style of this dress, the delicate puff sleeve, open back and ruched skirt detail. I had worn the same dress in a different colour previously and was surprised at how cool I was when wearing it, as I thought with the long sleeves and tight fit it would be the opposite in the humidity at night when abroad. Definitely one of my fave dresses.

Coffee date

Hey guys, So it has been a while…

I’ve been super busy with work, graded unit and assignments as well as promo over on my Instagram! And sadly I’ve not managed to do any blog posts. However, that’s going to change, college is nearly over and it’s almost summer which means I’ll be on here much more often!

So I thought I’d share with you the cutest little brunch/ coffee date place you NEED to go to! I was invited along to Locker 1012 in Glasgow by the Emma from @thesocialcowglobal to meet up with her Clint @dolly_rockin_it .

So apparently one outfit was not enough for my visit and I had to take advantage of the photo worthy back drops!

In the first look I styled the Dolly Rockin it black hoodie and I paired it with a black oversized blazer on top of my shoulders, black leather coated jeans, and Alexander McQueen oversized trainers. I’d say this is my go to look if I want to look like I’ve made a bit more effort while remaining quite comfy and casual. Blazers are a really nice way to tie a look together.

And yes, the instant tan didn’t quite reach my ankles however we will just go with it 🤪

For the second outfit I decided to style my Boohoo pastel lime blazer and trouser suit Co-ord. I love this colour and I think it’s perfect for spring/ summer and it’s a little bit different if your not into the whole neon trend right now! I wore a mesh white polka dot top underneath the suit jacket with a white bandeau, white thin strap heels and a white croc saddle bag! This could be dressed down with a pair of chunky trainers and a t shirt underneath! ( or even worn separately ) .

CHARLOTTER25 for a 25% off on BOOHOO.com

I was looking forward to the meeting, but also not so much as I have started clean eating and I’m now working with a personal trainer so I didn’t want to be bad and just resist the temptation… However, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that majority of the menu was made using alternative ingredients meaning I could enjoy the yummy food without the guilt! And just wait till you see what we got…

Just looking at this it’s making me hungry!

So we got a nice selection of foods to try and they were also so tasty!

Eggs florentine

Buckwheat Pancakes – summer berries compote

Sourdough open sandwich – Classic Avocado with poached egg and sauerkraut

Guacaroni – macaroni, avocado and heritage tomatoes

Super Salad Bowl

And who could forget the Turkish delight Latte ( the perfect pink cup of coffee which you need )

And just to balance it all out, a little bit of cake! ( they offer a wide selection of freshly made cakes in store including, rainbow, chocolate and angel cake )

not only does Locker 1012 offer an amazing photo worthy menu! But has the cutest interior which will satisfy all your girly needs

(All photos via @locker1012_glasgow )

I was so impressed with the decor and how the small space has so much personality, I recommend this wee cafe if you want to try something a little different or even just to treat yourself to a girls day out! I definitely will be.. thanks so much again to Locker 1012 for having us.. I hope you enjoy this little video put together by @thesocialcowglobal of our visit.

I’M ON YOUTUBE

So since early high school I can remember watching so many YouTubers and just wanting to do what they were doing and I just wanted to get myself involved.

I found the whole idea of YouTube so fascinating and I just wanted to do one myself. However at that age especially, you worry about what everyone thinks of you.

I feel there is something very intimidating about doing something that not a lot of people would think about doing themselves, which is a shame because we should push ourselves and each other to do exactly that and be excited and have a sense of pride in doing so.

I struggled with self confidence and trying to ‘fit in’, even now, I still worry about not fitting in. However, I don’t know why I’d want to fit in to be the same as everyone else (that’s boring) when I can be myself surrounded by my own bubble of people who like me for being me?

When I first started up my blog I was nervous and really worried about what people would say and I knew that if I wanted to do well I had to put the idea of negativity and judgment from others Aside. In the very short but amazing months so far since starting up my blog and starting this journey, I’ve met so many amazing people, been invited to exciting events and getting to work with some well established brands. And I don’t think I could be happier or more proud of myself for ignoring the comments and remarks of judgmental people who enjoy to say anything just because they think it’s funny. If anything the judgment from others has pushed me to do more, I’ve learnt to just deal with it because with everything you do people will always say something, so I may as well give them something to talk about. So when I decided to finally start my YouTube I was excited for what comes next.

So just a thank you to everyone who has supported me and even to the people who laugh and find it funny to tweet and comment on what I’m doing as well as others blogging and doing the same thing, Because I’m so lucky to find something I genuinely enjoy and I’m happy with doing right now and I’m forever grateful for the opportunities it has given me, hope you guys enjoy seeing what I get up to and like all the content I post, maybe you’ll join me on my YouTube chapter also.

I appreciate all suggestions and ideas you guys might have and that goes for my YouTube as well.

My YouTube is Charlotte Reid if you want to check it out and give my channel a subscribe. I’ll link it below for you all x

Comfort is key 🔑

So just want to start by saying I hope everyone had a fab Christmas and new year ( better late than never) . Anyways it’s been a super busy few weeks so not been able to post much but thought I’d share an absolute steal with you guys. I honestly have to say that comfort for any outfit is so important for me, The winter bod is out and bikini bod ( crosses fingers ) is hopefully in progress, so in the meantime I’ll be sticking to my ‘comfies’.

I’ve been living in loungewear and tracksuits and I’m obsessed with this one from rebellious fashion so I just had to share it with you girls.

Not only does it look SUPER CUTE! I was so surprised at how amazing quality this was and how comfortable it was to lounge about in.

I like the sporty feel it has with the track stripes but I just love how cute it looks while being super comfortable.

Also for it being a tracksuit I feel it looks very well put together and as if you’ve made effort with your outfit ( without really doing anything).

So if your looking for a super cute and comfy outfit then this is a MUST HAVE in your wardrobe. As I said before it’s from Rebellious Fashion and the product code is TJ6505 . ( it comes in a few diff colours of grey isn’t your thing).

Also just a wee note to say rebellious haven’t asked me to do this but I just wanted to share with you my opinion and because I was genuinely impressed by the fabric quality and how flattering it looks when worn for something being so comfortable.

Speak soon girlies , much love

Willow lane December shoot

So I got asked to work with willow lane for their December shoot and thought I’d share some of the day with you guys.

As well as photographing the looks we were to style each item as we would normally to show variety, Hope you guys enjoy the clips – char x

1.

So for this video I was to style willow lanes zebra print wrap dress! Watch how I put the look together.

So I added a black eyelet belt around the dress and looped it at the front as it was too long, A pair of black zipped patent boots and a Perspex bag with black detailing & to break it all up I wore my missy empire pink coat. (HOW AMAZING IS IT!!!). This is just one way I would have styled this outfit.

Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get a photo in this look!

Dress: willow lane fashion

Belt : PLT

Boots : Missguided

Bag : PLT

Coat : Missy Empire

2.

The second look was to style this satin chain print shirt dress.

I wore it with a gold chain belt to add shape to the dress, a pair of Perspex mule heels, a faux fur camel jacket and a crocodile tan mini bag. I also wore some gold earrings and initial necklace for subtle accessories.

Shirt dress : willow lane fashion

Chain belt : ASOS

Bag : Topshop

Heels : Missguided

Jacket : H&M

3.

So the top was the key piece to style around in this look so watch how I put it together!

I added a black belt again to the top, black leather trousers, thing high boots, black chain bag and a black teddy jacket over the shoulders just so the attention was kept to the detail in the top.

Top: Willow Lane Fashion

Trousers : Stradivarius

Boots : Hidden Fashion

Bag : Carvela

Jacket : Quiz

4.

The skirt was to be styled around in this outfit and I thought I’d change it up a bit! I really loved this outfit because as well as it being cute, it was extremely comfy.

So I decided to go for a baggy relaxed feel instead of my usual fitted and flared combo. I wanted to style this skirt in a way that it could be worn not just in summer but even in winter with a cosy jumper.

These cable knit oversized funnel neck jumpers are really in ATM and there is no wondering why!. I still opted for a black belt just so there was a little shape and the outfit looked a bit more put together. I then added my black Perspex boots and Perspex bag.

Skirt : Willow Lane Fashion

Jumper : Missy Empire

Belt : PLT

Bag : PLT

Boots : Missguided

So these were the four looks I styled and put together and I hope you guys enjoyed!! Willow lane have so many nice pieces in ATM so definitely check them out.

As well as this I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and best wishes for the New year!!

Rebellious fashion blogger Christmas dinner 💗💐

Hey dolls,

So on Friday night I was invited to a very exciting event with rebellious fashion.

This was their blogger Christmas dinner and it was at the new restaurant ‘So L.A’ opened on Glasgow’s Mitchell street. It was such a fab night with the rest of the rebellious gals and rebellious spoilt us rotten!!

So I went for an all pink look from rebellious with their lace bodysuit and belted cigarette trousers, you can never have too much pink!. (also how amazing are these personalised flowers from Mud Urban flowers).

I wore a silver choker and some embellished earring as well as my silver diamanté bag from missy empire.

Going to show you guys some snippets from the night as well so I hope you enjoy!

And yes that is our names personalised on a bottle of Irn Bru.

And I also can’t get over the generosity from rebellious for my Christmas presents! And for the companies as well.

Of course the flowers get an extra feature because they are just so preeetttttttttyyyy!!!.

This was such a fun girly night with everyone and was so overwhelmed with the generosity from the companies involved, I highly recommend checking out ‘So L.A’ and also having a wee browse over on rebellious as they always have good deals and offers on as well as having amazing pieces.

Also just want to say a thank you for having me along and for everyone who has supported me with my blog so far. I know there can be a lot of negativity and judgment from people however, I’m really at such a good place and enjoying what I’m doing. I’ve had the opportunity of working with such amazing companies and meeting so many lovely inspiring people and I’m really grateful and overwhelmed by how quickly it’s all happened. So thank you to those who read my blog and send me your kind messages of support! Nothing goes unnoticed.

Enough of the soppy stuff but hope you enjoyed this wee post and got a taster of some of the events I have the opportunity of going too!!. – Char xxx

Unicorn latte dates

Hey guys! So thought I’d post about this cute lil outfit I put together! Hope you like it , char xo

So I got sent this gorgeous little neon pink cropped jumper from femme luxe finery. I thought I’d pair it with a black buckle leather skirt, my black zip boots and a wee leopard print bag to break up the black and throw in a mix of print!.

I loved this outfit as it was simple and could be worn to lots of different things. I feel coming into winter you need a good leather skirt to pair with your big cosy knits and boots to add a bit of cuteness. I got mine from Topshop for £32 and I love the fit!!. I also really like that the buckle and zip details aren’t just details but you can use the buckles to adjust the fit and style also. I’ve tagged the full outfit on my 21 buttons if you want a direct link to each item!

I decided to wear this outfit to a little coffee date in Glasgow. And wait till you see my latte….

HOW CUTE!!!!

So there was a new cafe opened in Glasgow, called Okashi. it’s super cute and dare I say it ‘instagramable’. Flower walls, super cute interior and the cutest coffees and cakes.Just if any of you are wondering I got the Unicorn Latte and yes that is candy floss with sprinkles on top of my PINK latte.

Unicorn latte and red velvet mocha. ( DREAMMMYYYYYY)

Also, not as photogenic but definitely one of the tastiest sandwiches I’ve ever had. This is such a cute little lunch spot to go with the girls or your mum (Not sure boyfriends would be particularly happy sitting in a cafe of pink and flowers).

Hope you guys liked this post and let me know if you want me to post anything !! I’d love to hear what you all think. Thanks again, speak soon, Char xo

Blazer Styles

So I think lots of you may know I’m a big fan of wearing blazers.

Blazers can be worn dressier in a two piece suit/skirt or a pair of heels And causal with a hoodie and trainers, they are really versatile and can add a bit of boldness to your outfit even if it’s just jeans and a t-shirt.

I’d say a blazer is a go to when trying to think of an outfit for a ‘smart casual’ occasion so I thought I’d show you guys just a few examples of some of the ways I’ve styled mine previously.

Worn over an outfit to add a bit of colour and create a bolder look. Sat over shoulders to appear more relaxed and causal.

Worn together as a two piece suit for a cute dressy outfit to afternoon tea.

Blazer worn as dress with heels for a night out look.

Worn with a hoodie and leather trousers to finish off the outfit.

Worn over outfit with a belt to add shape and colour.

Trainer & blazer look

Worn as two piece.

Complimented colours in top and finished off the look.

Mix print and colour

These are just some of the outfits I have put together. I love wearing blazers as they can make you feel like you’ve made that little bit extra effort with your outfit and can be worn so many ways to create different looks.

Speak soon – love Char xx

Aberdeen Trip

So I decided to take a little trip to Aberdeen as my friend goes to uni there..

I thought I’d do a wee blog post on my trip and show you guys some of the outfits I put together while I was away!

I lovvvedddd this outfit as it was comfy and casual and I’m OBSESSED with neon atm! Paper bag jeans are such a flattering and comfy style of jean and can be worn with anything and add a little something extra to your outfit.

I wore paper bag jeans with a cropper neon yellow thin jumper. I then kept jewellery quite simple and wore my white court heels and checkered bag.

Also obsessed with white mochas from Starbucks!!!

(sad I didn’t get a Christmas cup)

Top – Zara

Jeans – PLT

Shoes – Topshop

Bag – Topshop

So we were heading out for dinner and drinks at Revolution! I decided to go for a smart casual outfit.

I wore a black graphic Tee, a cord Lilac Blazer and leather trousers. I paired this with my clear mule heels and a clear bag!

For jewellery I wore a pair of gold large hoops and a gold necklace to match the gold chain on my bag! I can never mix silver and gold , absolute pet hate!!

Also, our drinks and food was 110% as yummy as it looks!

Top – Zara

Blazer – Primark

Trousers – Stradivarius

Heels – PLT

Bag – Asos

Earrings – H&M

(can you tell I like blazers)

So I wore a hoodie underneath this gorgeous checked blazer , (which was £17!!!)

I wore it with my leather trousers instead of a pair of jeans , my white court heels and this cute little bag !! I like to mix and match different prints as I think it can make a really nice contrast to your outfit and make your outfit a bit more unique to anyone else’s!!

Blazer – Primark – £17!!!!

Hoodie – PLT

Leather trousers – Stradivarius

Bag – New look

Shoes – Topshop

Coming up to Christmas I love to wear a bit of sparkle… This jacket gives more than just a bit of that!.

I thought it would be nice to wear quite a plain outfit as I didn’t want to take away any attention from this jacket so I opted for all black.

I wore a plain black top with ruched detail, my leather trousers ( am I ever out of these ) and my Balenciagas.

I felt that this outfit didn’t need any jewellery as the detail and bling is all in the jacket.

I also decided to do a cute little half up half down hair style with a messy bun as I thought it looked quite cool with the jacket and not all my hair was hiding detail from the jacket.

Jacket – Asos

Top – River Island

Trousers – Stradivarius

Shoes – Balenciaga @ Cruise

This jacket is to amazing so deserves a 4th pic :)!!

Hope you guys liked this post!! All the links to these outfits will be tagged on my 21 buttons so keep your eyes peeled.

Hi guys! So since starting my blog I have been given sooo many exciting opportunities!! Many being , that I’ve been asked to attend events for businesses and companies as a means of exposure for their brand. I’ve had so much fun with it and just thought I’d share some of the events I have attended so far and what I decided to wear along to them!! Hope you enjoy – char xxx

DESIGNER WAXING EVENT

So I was asked to attend Designer Waxing’s 10th Birthday event in their salon in Glasgow. It was a really fun night with music, cocktails and lots of treatments in their salon. Designer waxing are looking to expand their company and are looking at opening up a second salon in Edinburgh!! They specialise in waxing however they offer various other treatments and I’d definitely recommend them if you are looking for any waxing type treatments for yourself!

I wore this gorgeous yellow checked blazer and skirt co-ord for Topshop. I paired it with a Zara basics sleeveless black vest top. I have this top in literally every colour as I loveee the quality and the fit of it. I also wore a pair of clear mule styled heels from Missguided and a black eyelet belt and a white jelly bag, both from pretty little thing. I also am obsessed with the necklace I wore with this outfit! It’s a small silver padlock chain necklace from Asos.

LOVE THOSE LASHES EVENT

So as I am now an LTL BABE, I was invited along to Love Those Lashes’ world lash day event. LTL had makeup demos, fruity cocktails, a magician , the yummiest cupcakes and the most gorgeous flower wall you could think of!. I think everyone knows how obsessed I am with this company and how amazing their lashes are so again, I 110% recommend these girls to give you the best lashes !!

I wore a snake print blazer, a black graphic t shirt, both from Zara. A pair of black leather trousers, and a pair of white slingback leather heels, I am obsessed with these and got them for £20 in the Topshop sale!! I finished off this outfit with a gold chunky chain necklace and my small Louis Vuitton bag, I then added a satin scarf to my bag that I bought from new look.

M&S ADVENT CALENDAR BLOGGER PREVIEW

So M&S reached out to me and asked if I wanted to visit the Braehead store for a bloggers preview of this years Christmas advent calendar, as I’m obsessed with makeup and skincare myself of course I said yes! This was a lovely day out with champagne and some rep talks on some of the brands that are featured in this years calendar, it’s Definitely something I’ll be buying myself for this year and it’s such good value for money for the products you are getting.

For this outfit I decided to wear my Rebellious Fashion pink jumper dress, black thing high boots, black faux fur bag and a black belt. Chunky knits are really in just now especially when layered!!

FAKE BAKE X LAMBRINI X GGC EVENT

So I attended this gorgeous event held at club 29 in Glasgow. It was a lovely night full of cocktails, massages, glitter and a Q&A with the CEO of Fake Bake. Not only that but the goodie bag we got given was AMAAZZINGGGG!

For this event I decided to wear a leopard print layered ruffle skirt I found from Zara Kids, I got this in a size 13-14 which is the equivalent to a size 8. I wore this with a black lace bodysuit and wore my Willow Lane Fashion blue blazer over my shoulders. To finish off I wore gold jewellery , a gold chain belt from Asos, a black bowler bag from Topshop and Kurt Geiger black heels.

I’ve had so much fun attending all these events and over the moon that I get asked to go to things so exciting in the first place!! I have lots more coming up in the next few weeks and will be sure to post more about them on here and my Instagram soon! So keep your eyes peeled.

All of my outfits are tagged on my 21BUTTONS @charlotteemmareid .
