| A Pair Of Jeans Big Enough For Two | 26/01/17 |





Finally, I have gotten round to creating a blog post using my new camera. For those interested, it is the Nikon Coolpix L340 Bridge Camera, and so far I'm loving it. It is definitely not the most professional camera developing high quality images, but for the price I paid and for the fact I am very much a beginner with photography, it will certainly suffice.

As you know, I am incredibly comfort orientated, and typically avoid 'girly' looks that realistically are completely uncomfortable and leave you unable to even eat without being strangled by the waistline on your Topshop Joni jeans - lol. So, on a day-to-day basis, a pair of good jeans are vital. I have been loving straight leg/mom jeans recently, because they're incredibly comfortable and look so effortless with a chunky knit. Over the past few months I have been expanding my denim collection, and my most recent purchase are these ASOS mom style jeans.



These jeans are both amazing and a bit pants (pun very much intended). Firstly, they're a heavy denim, rather than stretchy, jegging-like which I love because it allows them to look a little bit more expensive, and consequently a little less prone to wear and tear. They are also exceedingly comfortable, as despite being a heavy denim they remain soft and don't dig into the skin in any way. However, these jeans are let down in certain aspects. Firstly, the waistline is incredibly inaccurate. Generally, I wear a W26 in jeans, which usually fits snugly but without fitting too tightly to the skin. But with these jeans, I could literally fit another person in there (a very small person, mind) because they're just far bigger than they are described as. Definitely shop a size smaller if you want to purchase these jeans!! Secondly, as baggy jeans are, these jeans are evidently loose around the leg. However unlike other mom/boyfriend/straight leg style jeans I own, these are loosely fitting in an unflattering way, I feel. They have very little shape to them, and are far baggier than a straight leg jean would be - not overly impressed. 

Despite the fact these jeans are not what I imagined, I do still like them and do still wear them, however they're more of an around-the-house go-to, rather than for out and about. 




The end of January generally marks the end of everyone's attempt of a New Year's resolution, if you haven't failed miserably already, and to those of you who have stuck to your resolutions, a huge well done. The New Year is a great way to discover new things, and throw yourself at a new beginning. So, I hope that all of you are enjoying 2017 so far, I certainly am. Keep doing whatever you're doing that's making this year even better than last, and don't forget that your dreams and goals can be reached one small step at a time. Your future is always going to start today, so don't let 'I'll do it tomorrow' be an excuse. 

So, that's all for today, I hope you have enjoyed reading this post. Please do let me know how you feel about the pictures in this post, as obviously they're using a camera instead of my phone so I'd love to know your thoughts. See you all next week for a new post!

Peace out 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.

Hello!
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 …

HEY DUDES!

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 game...lol

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…
