Styling for Autumn



I finally feel like Autumn is really upon us - which means it is now appropriate to layer up, pop the fluffy socks on under your boots and embrace those nude colours! 

Firstly, apologies for the absence of a Fashion Friday post, I found myself unable to piece together an outfit I felt happy with, so I was weak and gave up - ha! 

Coat: F&F
Shirt: TKMaxx
Jeans: New Look
Boots: Asos

This assembly of items is really just aiming to excite you all about Autumn and to make you think about how you want to dress for the chilly weather this season. Personally, I find Autumn is a fantastic time of year because it's cold enough to feel cosy in all of your layers, however you don't have to worry about being genuinely cold because it's not quite reached freezing yet!! Also, I am really looking forward to wearing boots and warm socks and layering up with wool jumpers and shirts so that when I'm out walking the dog in the fields covered in crispy golden leaves, I can really get a feel for this time of year. 

So, the coat I am wearing is F&F from Tesco and I actually purchased this last year, close to Christmas, and got it for a bargain price. I love the colour and also love the style, a long coat really does keep you so much warmer than a bomber jacket or leather jacket might, and therefore it can last you through both Autumn and Winter. I paired this with a combination I've been wearing a lot recently - the shirt and jeans. The shirt is a great staple shirt as its relatively simple and can be worn both under a jumper and over a vest top. However, my real love is for these jeans from New Look. I absolutely love these because they are beyond comfortable, are very tight fitting which is surprising as I usually struggle with jeans being baggy at the ankle because I'm too short for them! These jeans tick all the boxes, and I feel they pair well with black and white best. I would 100% recommend New Look for their AW15 collection because they really do have some absolute gems - both jeans but also their jumpers and tops are on point! Last of all, the boots. These ankle boots were purchased last year and I bought these from Asos. I constantly find myself browsing on Asos for boots as I cannot ever choose a single pair because they are all so lovely - so much choice! However I bought these as they are flats and at the time I owned mostly heeled shoes. I actually got them for my holiday to Amsterdam because I assumed I'd be doing a lot of walking - which I did. Another great thing about these boots is that they are very spacious and comfortable which means you can fit some snug socks underneath without anyone knowing - sneaky! 

Hope you liked today's post! 
See you soon!

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…
