black and orange

Can you tell I am slightly obsessed with my New Black Maxi skirt from Primark? it literally goes with everything. The top is new from H&M and mum thinks it makes me look spanish..what do you think? i am indeed lacking in the tan area, believe it or not, i have spanish ancestry, I won't ramble on about my family tree, I promise. I am so in love with the colour of this top, when I was in H&M i couldn't leave the shop with out buying it, it was a little pricey at £19.99 for a top but I just love it. 
I've had a few recent comments asking me where my fringe has gone and was it a real fringe, my hair grows really quickly so my fringe has grown out, also straight hair is so much effort, to maintain, and its bugging me so i've gone back to my messy look. Its surprising how people react differently to me with my curly hair, sometimes not in a good way. But I guess thats their problem.
In other news my secret little project is coming along nicely and i shared a few sneak peeks over on my instagram ella_masters. 
I would love to know who are in your Five top girl crushes? who are your five top fashionable ladies? I would love to know what they are. 



  1. You look so cute!! Love that skirt. I might have to get one too. x

  2. Your blog is amazing! I love the layout! As for your outfit it's lovely, loving the boho vibe surrounding it.

  3. such a lovely outfit!
    that top is gorgeous .


  4. Oh my, you look gorgeous Ella! Absolutely gorgeous! And the colour of your top is so so perfect! xxx


  5. Ella I love your tattoo! It's gorgeous!

  6. Gorgeous! Top 5 girl crushes are Rachel McAdams, Mila Kunis, Shannon Sossamyn, Cheryl Cole and Annalynne McCord! Random bunch!

  7. Top 5 girl crushes? My girl crushes are usually not really fashion icons. I just love funny women... I don't immediately have a top 5, but off the top of my head: Miranda Hart, Rebel Wilson, Anna Kendrick and Kristen Bell.

    I have a side cut too, btw. ;) Though mine was by choice. But seeing as my cousin who usually shaves it is in Turkey, I'm growing it out right now.

  8. these photos are too cute!! you are adorable and lovely combo of colours! x rebecca

  9. I love this outfit.
    You look lovely!

  10. Great combo! And love the hair. I'd love to go for the tussled look but it never quite works out. Fashion girl crushes are hard, I think I'd like to dress like some quirkier characters but then it just doesn't feel like me.

  11. You look lovely! Your hair looks fab curly! I love you earings and cuffs too :)
    Hmm girl crushes-Mila Kunis, Audrey Kitching, Marina Diamandis, Natalie Portman & Cara Delevingne :)

  12. I really like your 'messy look hair', lots of texture and it looks very bouncy! :D

    The maxi skirt is great on you! I really want to try these but I feel as if I'm too short to pull one off haha

  15. love your blog. the outfit is super cute. i am the young lady that sked u about your camera the other day on twitter. feel free to check out my blog alizarayne.blogspot.com

  16. I prefer curly over straight any day. There's so much more character in curly hair, no?

    So weird, but I'm blanking out on fashionable women I like!
