Bomber jackets brought back - The 80's - Fashion Week

Evening my lovely lovely friends!

To give you the low-down, I was having an absolute crisis in attempting to find something I owned that was remotely 70's. So I ditched the 70's with no regrets and got myself wrapped up in the 80's! Enjoy x

So, this outfit kind of brings in different aspects of the 80's. Lycra dancewear and leg warmers were unbelievably cool during the 80's, which was my inspiration for the Tshirt crop top in polka dot. This is from New Look and I must admit I do not actually own this, it belongs to my sister. Personally, I find cropped tops so uncomfortable and unsettling - and if I do decide to show off a little tummy, I 100% go for a baggy top - not sure why I just feel much more confident wearing that, and comfort is the most important thing! BUT in the 80's, the tighter and brighter the better! I paired this top with some jeans which are also from New Look. I purchased these rather recently and they are part of their A/W15 range. They are incredibly comfortable and also particularly stretchy so they are very figure hugging - totally appropriate for the 80's. I also decided to wear converse. Converse are the ultimate 80's shoe, alongside a large range of other trainer/ pump shoes and of course STILETTOS! These are also leather, which was popular at the time! Lastly, I picked up this khaki bomber jacket from The Kilo Sale whilst in Leeds last weekend. Again, it's vintage so is perfect for an 80's recreation and despite the fact it is huge and puffy making me feeling like the Michelin man, it is incredibly warm and I will definitely be popping this on when it's freezing outside because... Well because I can. In terms of bomber jackets, they are sold in most high street stores, but if you can grab hold of an old one, even better! Asos particularly have a fantastic range of bomber jackets I have noticed! 

Anyway, I'll love ya and leave ya! X

Winter Coat Styling & The Most Important Aspects Of Life.

Evening everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far and are keeping warm and cosy in this awfully miserable British weather. I also expect that you have seen the John Lewis Christmas Advert for this year, or else you're a slight scrooge and complete disappointment. Watch it here before you continue to read this blog post, if you haven't already indulged in the festivity because it is wildlife-filled and exceeds the word cute.

American politics aside, I am hopeful that you have all had a great week working hard, and are being rewarded with a relaxing weekend so far. There's nothing quite like a chilled out weekend after a busy week. Lush.

This week I thought I would go all guns blazing with a wintery blog post, as I have been desperately waiting to start wearing this gorgeous coat. Although, I'll be wearing from now until probably April before we see sunshine agai…

October 21st 2016. An evening of reflection.

So, picture this: A slightly sleep deprived student perched on the step of the backdoor, coffee to hand. The sweet sound of Nick Mulvey's album First Mind complimenting the silence of an empty house. A cold, crisp evening in midst October and a wandering mind. I decided to write this post as an expression of reflection and contentment, a diversion from the usual materialistic posts on fashion items and styling attempts.

I would firstly just like to apologise for not posting in a few weeks, but as you may or may not know, I have just began my university adventure and despite the fact I have only been here three weeks, I feel as though its already been a lifetime of experiences and lessons learned.

First day of uni
University has honestly been the most insane journey so far: the almost sleepless nights; extreme consumption of alcohol and trying to find my way around university and the town I now call home. I have enjoyed every hungover moment and I simply feel like I needed …

In less than a month I am tooting off to Spain for the festival Benicassim with George and some friends, so the next couple of posts are going to be pretty central to outfits relating to festival attire and what I've been wearing during my trip. So, this is the last 'normal' outfit I will be posting for a few weeks, yet to be honest, this is still relatively holiday appropriate. Hope you enjoy.

sorry about the awful brow

The focal point of this post is evidently this insane shirt by ASOS. When I first came across this shirt on the ASOS website, I absolutely fell in love with the back detailing of it, and also the sketchiness(?) that the print provides. I was also really digging the orange and pink vibes, alongside all the other colours proudly displayed on this piece. However, I must say when it arrived by the lovely DPD that knows me very well now (lol) it really didn't loo…
