Hello November, Cold Weather & Lots Of Layers

Well look who's back?! As it is now officially November, I figured it would only be polite to give the best month in the entire year a big hello. In case you had curiosity as to why I have such strong views on the month of November, I can assure you my excitement is most definitely not because my birthday is the 28th November... definitely.

For the sake of fashion blogging tradition, it is about time I wrote to you all about styling Autumn/Winter layers, and to present to you, my almighty creation. In reality, I just threw this outfit on in the hope it would keep me a little warm amongst the abundance of  5 degree weather. And with a little luck, I was able to blog it. So here we go.

Blouse: Salad (It's second hand so not sure where from)
Knitted Waistcoat: Zara Knitwear
Jeans: Asos
Belt: Not A Clue (no that is not an edgy brand, lol)
Socks: Asos
Trainers: Asos

Essentially, I look like a little bit of a hippie, or cast member from the absolute world class film 'Into The Wild', but nonetheless, it keeps me pretty cosy. Until I step outside and have to add a mammoth sized coat because winter is a real tricky time to remain fashionable. But eh, the coat cannot be mentioned because it does not fit to the theme of this blog post, nor does it look particularly flattering, more like the Michelin man gone viral.

So, whilst I listen to the sweet sound of Eddie Vedder, and contemplate putting another pair of socks on because my feet are beginning to lose all sense of feeling, lets chat.

As you will probably notice, these Asos jeans are becoming a complete staple item in my wardrobe, as they are just so comfortable and fit me really well, I think. They're definitely a relaxed pair of jeans as far as mom jeans go, and the distressing and ripped knees also give it a bit of an edge. so whilst my knees are going to freeze this winter, I will remain comfortable at all times. Success. To add, I have noticed jeans nowadays don't always have belt loops (I'm talking to you Topshop), but these do, so I can add a belt as and when I please to spice these up - thank you Asos.

I am absolutely in love with this blouse and waistcoat combo and although I feel a little like I'm dressing as my future adult self - lol - I am infatuated. This blouse is honestly gorgeous, feels of a good quality piece of clothing and the pattern is really quite divine. The waistcoat, I think, compliments this blouse really well, and just adds a little something, bringing my outfit together nicely.

Trainers. Oh the joys. I have never been the kind of girl to wear trainers, and that's most probably hence why these aren't Nike or Adidas, because I lack in trainer expertise. However, being at University means a lot of walking and my feet were beginning to feel a bit neglected. So I spontaneously purchased these trainers from Asos for £20 (don't quote me but I am almsot certain they were £20) in a mint colour, and boy it was a worthy purchase. I literally wear these every day now, which is a bit of a given because they look like I have walked through a swamp in them - which I haven't - or at least I haven't in a sober state of body/mind. I would 100% recommend you try Asos if youre keen for an inexpensive pair of go to trainers.

As always, here comes the new addition to the blog, where I talk a load of bollocks about cherishing memories and loving earth in the attempt to feel like a moderately good person. But today I just wanted to send out a little message of happiness with the hope it may be relatable to you. So for what its worth I have been thinking a lot about happiness, and what makes people happy. Furthermore, the importance of being honest with your self and occasionally ruthless about who is really making you happy, and if otherwise, removing those negative aspects of your life. I actually think its pretty hard to be completely happy, as life is always tackling us with obstacles and episodes of difficult decision making. And because of that I don't think it is possible to ever be 100% happy, however, overcoming hurdles are made much easier if you have the ability to confide in close ones and take a break completing whichever activity puts a smile on your face. In this crazy and very much brutal world, just try to find your little spot of tranquillity in which can make you feel a sense of happiness and calm.

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.

SUP GUYS! How are we all doing this morning? 
I am currently sat on my bed in the late afternoon, with a hot cup of tea to hand (hopefully I won't forget about it), and I am really digging deep in my thoughts in terms of what I want to talk about today. A stressed student, on the cusp of several deadlines and all I can think about is this blog post. Blogging is a funny thing, sometimes it is my ultimate escape where I can just unwind and spill out onto the page whatever springs to mind. But sometimes, blogging can feel overwhelming, like I am being forced to think about my reality in its most raw state, and sometimes life is not all fun and games, and I just don't really want to come to terms with my busy mind. 
Before I babble on about life and bore you all, lets jump straight in to the outfit I have styled for you t…
