Amy Rowley Style - With Perfect Glasses

If you know me then you will know that since I was little I have had to wear glasses. Growing up it was never something I enjoyed or liked about myself and once I got to college I decided to try contact lenses. After a battle with those and a period of time that involved very sore eyes, I ended up going back to wearing glasses full time. However this time I decided to embrace it and use them as a fashion statement. Since then I am always on the hunt for fashionable frames at a reasonable price. 

One thing that still gets to me is that I can't just simply walk into topshop and buy a pair of sunglasses of the stand, because believe me when I say...i'm pretty blind *chuckles*. So when Perfect Glasses got in touch and told me about their  prescription glasses and sunglasses range I thought I would have a little look. Not expecting much I ended up finding a gorgeous pair, at at extremely affordable price.

 This design caught my eye as it's very similar to a Rayban style called Erika. However instead of being £150, these little beauty's were £39! Now if you wear glasses you will know that finding reasonable but fashionable frames can be hard. If you still wish to have the designer brand Perfect Glasses have a great selection of designer frames in all shapes and sizes, but I wanted to show you that you don't have to spend a fortune to receive a great frame! 

The website has a great tool where you can upload a picture of you and it will show you how the glasses will fit. I found this useful, just so I could see how big the frame was compared to my face. 
To get the correct prescription you can either enter it manually or upload your prescription document, it really is that simple. Once ordered, my glasses arrived within a couple of days and I cannot believe how happy I am with them. I now just need the weather to stay sunny so I can get the wear out of them they deserve. 

If you like these frames but don't need prescription lenses, don't panic. You can buy the frames without prescription lenses in, no fuss. The website currently has an offer on where if you enter the code 'PAYHALF' at the checkout you can get half price discount across the entire website. So if you like the look of these or just fancy a look, then I would recommend heading over there quick.

I hope you enjoyed this little blog post from me, I really enjoyed working on this one and am so happy with my glasses. It's not very often i find a pair of reasonably priced prescription sunglasses that I love.

Amy Rowley Style - The Trench Edit

Spring has sprung and I don't know about you but this makes me a very happy bunny. Today was the first day in a while I have been on my way back from work smiling because the sun is out and the breeze is just perfect! Anyway cheesiness over and done with, its important to remember that living in the UK it just so happens that these days are few and far between. With that in mind I thought what better focus for this week's blog then the classic trench coat!

Now if I had my way the Burberry trench would be the absolute epitome of perfection, however it's safe to say that is no where near my budget. So I thought I would talk to to you about the PINK trench and yes I am still far from being over my current pink obsession.

I picked this little beauty up from Topshop last year and I wore it to death through the spring months. I'm glad to see that the trend has been bought back this season and there are still plenty of choices available on the market. ( Links will be below) Not only does it give the edge to the classic of the trench but it just injects a little bit of colour to an outfit. Colour in my opinion is never worn enough, so many people get comfortable wearing the grey tones and monochrome outfits, which don't get me wrong I love, but you should never be afraid to wear a little bit of colour. You should learn to be playful with it and instead of wearing a complete outfit of bright colours, use one pop to make your outfit scream fun. You don't have to wear super bright shades either, muted tones and pastels are in fact my favourite.

This outfit was a simple one thrown on for the weekend but i felt comfortable yet a little bit sassy. With International Women's Day just gone it reminds me how important it is to feel great about what we are wearing and embrace it!

Pink Trench Coat

So what do you think? Fancy a little pink trench? I know i will be wearing mine in the upcoming months and continue to embrace the pink shade that a lot of people seem to be going crazy over. I hope your all having a fabulous Friday and just like me looking forward to the weekend. I don't know about you but i'm hoping for a sunny one.

Amy Rowley Style - The Biker Jacket & My LFWF Experience

So after scrolling through the Zara app on my phone (a daily occurrence) this gorgeous suedette biker jacket caught my eye. The dilemma of what colour I should pick was the first hurdle after seeing it came in a baby pink shade too. It might surprise you if you saw my last blog post (here) that I chose this beautiful baby blue/grey colour to add to my wardrobe and after receiving the jacket it only seemed right that I shared it with you too. 

* Outfit * 
Jacket - Zara (pink version)
Jumper - H&M 
Jeans - Topshop
Boots- Office 
Bag - Zara (Sold out)

The classic biker jacket, is the perfect staple for any wardrobe. They return to the high street and designer market every season, with a different colour, new details or a interesting material. This particular biker jacket is part of the suede biker collection that has been around for the last couple of seasons and something I've totally been loving. I think its nice to step out of your comfort zone and choose something other then black or grey which is why I chose to go with this baby blue shade. It isn't too far away from the grey tones which means it's still easy to style and will work with most of your wardrobe. 

I wore this outfit last weekend when I went to London for the day with one of my good friends. It kept me warm in the still very breezy weather we are experiencing but I still felt stylish at the same time. As for my jumper underneath, I found this cute little number on one of my recent visits to H&M. It is very similar to a Club Monaco jumper that a few well known bloggers had been styling throughout fashion week (Lydia E Millen & Josie Fashion Mumblr) so I knew I had to pick it up once I saw it. All other items in my outfit will be linked above if you fancy having a look. 

Moving on from the outfit I wanted to quickly touch on a subject that I wasn't sure whether to bring up or not. As I mentioned earlier I went to London last weekend with a friend and we specifically went for London Fashion Week Festival. We had been excited to go for what seemed like ages and watching all the media shown throughout London Fashion Week, we had become even more eager to experience just a small part of that world. 

I think its important to talk about how things may not always seem as they are and that in fact certain hyped events might not always make you feel as you had thought. But that is okay. 

After experiencing only half an hour of the hustle and bustle of LFWF we decided that we would rather spend the day enjoying ourselves, exploring london further and being typical tourists instead of pretending to enjoy something that just wasn't our cup of tea. I wanted to enjoy the experience and could see so many others doing so but sometimes you have to accept if something isn't right. 
The overall busy nature of the event and way it made us feel, left us leaving uncomfortable and almost eager to breathe again. 

Anxiety isn't something I have really touched on before and its not something i'm overly ready to talk about now but for anyone else out there who may feel the same in these situations I just wanted to make a point of saying..ITS OKAY. Don't force yourself through something, instead remove yourself and be comfortable in your surroundings. Everyone is different and you may have the same passions but you might not like experiencing them in that shared way. 

That's enough rambling for one post, don't you think!? I hope you enjoyed my little update and outfit post, who else is seriously in love with this jacket?

Thanks for reading my lovelies x
