(Wo)men in black


Hey, guess what day it is?? FASHION FRIDAY!! 

So apart from looking like one of the men in black, I was actually aiming for a cool/ business/ office look... 

As many of you will have recently received your gcse and alevel results, you may be going on to sixth form, a 9-5 office job, college, university etc etc etc. Therefore, you're probably wondering what you're going to have to wear. I myself go to sixth form and find that sometimes you can't be bothered to put effort into your appearance - so here's a suggestion that's smart but simple :) enjoy :)

This blazer is from New Look and is ideal for making an outfit look instantly smart. The blazer I'm wearing is actually size 10 so it's slightly on the large side, although I don't mind that because it makes it more slouchy and comfortable, rather than feeling like you're attending a job interview. 

I paired this with my cropped skinny trousers, also from New Look and I believe these costed me £12/£13 - bargain. I actually wear these to work usually as they're perfect waitress attire, but also look fabulous with a blazer or leather jacket. These fit really really well, and make you look about 10X more toned in most ways haha, additional bonus there! I would definitely say New Look are brilliant for office wear at a great price and I have bought two pairs of these trousers now! 

The vest I am wearing is from H&M and I have worn this SO much this summer. It's super comfy and it fits me well, especially as the ties at the back can be adjusted tighter or looser to alter the straps. This is particularly helpful for me because I have teeny tiny shoulders - if you also do, check out H&M's vest selection!!! It's a kind of disco vest, very stretchy and shiny, and the slight v neck adds a little more style to the piece. I think the all in black spin on this outfit makes it so cool and chick which I adore! 

Next, SHOES. I bought these little gems in the sale from Topshop a few months ago. I think they were 50% off at the time - not sure - but I paid £22 for them. I actually haven't worn them yet as I haven't seeked the opportunity, however I may pop this outfit on from time to time because I love how great these shoes look. They're a very pale pink, with black and gold edging, so they're relatively subtle which makes them prettier. Also, the heel is not too high, and I feel this is important if you're going to be wearing them all day because heels have a tendency to hurt after about 5 minutes haha! I would definitely recommend picking these up if Topshop bring them back at any point! 

The Asos hat and Topshop sunglasses have featured in my blog previously, but I just added these because I thought they looked great. The hat adds a bit of style and sophistication to the outfit and is very fitting with the hairstyle I chose - which you might also choose if you're in an office for example. Also, the sunglasses look so so good with this outfit - I think these sunglasses are hard to fit into an outfit but all black definitely accentuates the beauty of these shades. 

Hope to see you soon, keep reading and commenting on my posts, the enthusiasm of you all makes my day! Angel x

The internet is such a strange world, and it is in fact its own world - so far from reality yet so close, it redefines society conceptually to be honest. The internet can bring such wonderful things into the world: the announcement of a new baby, an endless supply of fashion inspiration, the top news at the fastest rate, and so many amazing memories and conversations can be shared between the beautiful people on this planet. The internet is an extraordinary place, and even more so as someone who has grown up in this time of technology. I bloody love the internet and all it brings to the world, I honestly think the internet is such a great platform for humanity to connect, share and create.
However, I have been wondering my mind recently, quite intently, and have found myself shying away from the internet, and social media platforms. Despite the fact I have no huge following…

| Going Back To Basics | 10/10/17 |

Gooood morning, and welcome back to the blog. Today, I wanted to share with you another post from my first fashion photo shoot. This outfit, I feel, is perfect for this transitional period, and is also verging on the smart side of fashion (for me anyway, lol). I really enjoyed piecing together this outfit, and trying to experiment with my personal style. As you all undoubtedly know, I often opt for the comfier garments and that aspect of my style definitely is portrayed through most of my blog posts. But equally, trying something new is exhilarating, particularly with Autumn homing into view so I want to diversify my wardrobe. I am loving the tailored look, and am growing fonder of fitted tops that enhance my body a lot more than a baggy tshirt or oversized jacket would.

| The Truth About Student Life | 20/02/18 |

M O R N I N G 

I almost feel like I've forgotten how to write a blog post, so the format of this post might be a bit 'up in the air'. Therefore, before I delve into things, here's a quick disclaimer... On the 26th December, I uploaded a blog post surrounding the topic of social media, and the influence I feel it has on the mental health of its users. Since then, I have been absent from this blog, and largely absent from social media in general, because I feel as though I've had nothing worth saying recently. I would much rather only upload when I am bringing a little something useful to the internet that even if only one person found it interesting, it would at least have a purpose.
 This leads swiftly on to the subject of this post. Student life, and the truth about how it feels to experience daily life as a young adult, studying at University. I promise to not sugar coat the finer details, and to accurately portray the common notions of being a student. Shall we…
