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

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…
