Trend Favourites: Nightwear as Daywear

Check out my latest (and first) YouTube Trend Favourite video. I actually posted this 2 weeks ago but have been incredibly busy going on holiday to Egypt and working etc that I haven't had time to post this intro blog.

Since I filmed this, I've noticed a whole array of more pyjomo's (pyjama kimonos) now hitting down into the highstreet, with Topshop repeating back into the style as it gets BIG on the lead up to Spring/Summer.

I had promised in the video to do a lemon trend Highstreet Favourite video as part of this series, therefore shall be posting that video hopefully on Sunday... watch this space!

For now I will leave you with the link (and a screenshot) but, if you have any questions on anything you see in the video be sure to leave me a comment and let me know you've found it through my blog!

PSsst... This Week's Fashion Favourites

I decided to give you my favourites from the highstreet this week to give you some inspiration and a bit of an insight as to what's actually out there right now.


My River Island favourite this week has to be these navy tailored shorts. City shorts are set to make a big comeback and these are the perfect way to ease yourself into the trend. I really love tailoring and can already visualise an outfit using these as a good base point. 

River Island, £25

These would like amazing worn in a co-ord way (Click here for a co-ord option) or dressed up with some heels as an alternative to a skirt on a night out. 


I really love this Zara top. I've been umming and ahhing over whether to buy it or not for myself but thought I'd share the love with you. This is more of an interest piece at £50 and it may not be at the top of everyone's wish list but, I was instantly attracted when browsing online the other day.

Zara £49.99
Zara is literally all blacks and navy, with a little bit of cream thrown in the mix at the moment. I buy a lot of black but this is unlike anything I have in my wardrobe at the moment.... ohhhh I might just have to get it.


Everyone seems to be going crazy for these drape front blouses at the moment and I'm absolutely loving this one in black! It's a really elegant blouse which has a range of wearing possibilities. I'm already picturing a simple necklace, jeans and my MK watch (going for an understated option). 

Topshop £36

(Looking up I can already see I'm being heavily influenced by the miserable weather here in the UK. For this last one I promise to choose some colour!)


Some may argue ASOS technically isn't on the highstreet but it's still that price point so I'll count it. I was instantly drawn to this striped pencil skirt. I don't usually wear things this smart to the office but if you did, or had a nice event to go to, this is a perfect option (and no sign of black). This cobalt blue colour is also one of my favourites so it's nice to see it with the burnt orange colour rather than black for a change. I would be interested to see the fabric though so for me it's definitely one to buy and try. 

Overall, the highstreet does look quite dark right now (or that could just be my attraction to those dark colours on a dark cold winter's evening) but there are pops of colour if you look out for them. I'm definitely tempted to purchase a few of these myself... a danger of writing these type of posts each week!

Hope you're feeling a little inspired by these 4 picks for this week. There'll be another 'Fashion Favourites' post next week so if there's anything you've seen that's caught your eye over the week, be sure to leave a comment :)

PSsst... Fashion, Beauty, Me and More!

Hello and Welcome!

This is my blog, PSsst.... An opportunity for me to share with you all things fashion, beauty and stills from my life. I hope to keep you entertained and provide you with a few tips I've picked up along the way.

A little bit about me: 
My name's Paige Sime (hence the PSsst..), I'm 23 and work in London for a large fashion company, but if this starts alarm bells ringing of a biased view, STOP. Don't worry, I'm still a girl who loves to shop around, get a bargain and potentially give you some insight of things one step ahead of the game.

So, you might have guessed I love clothes but, I also have a love of all things beauty, including nail art and make up. While I don't classify myself as a professional in either of those things, I'm going to share with you my passion in the hope you'll also provide me with a few ideas too!

Stay Connected:
I've also decided to set up a YouTube channel to go along with this blog. Go check it out. My first video is up now, you can follow the link YouTube or alternatively you can search Paige Sime. Take a look and give the Subscribe button a click to stay up to date with all my latest videos posted every Wednesday.

Also feel free to peruse my social media accounts, below is a snippet of what you can expect on Instagram... a few shameless selfies, many food pictures, a sprinkling of fashion and a couple of cocktails from those escalating London nights out. I also have Pinterest and Twitter accounts for you to follow.
