| Time Flies | 25/04/17

Yo guys, it's been a long time since I last wrote to you all. So here's a quick update...

So, I've mostly been completely consumed by the colossal workload that studying at university brings and I've somehow managed to get completely swept away by the time - how is it almost May?!?! I've also been spending a lot of time chilling out and attempting to make the most of these final weeks of my first year as a student. Essentially, I've been hanging out with my friends and George 24/7 watching endless movies, playing computer games that I always lose at, and going on nights out where possible. So I've been both stressed out and also having fun... work hard play hard? (lol cringe soz) - so the blog has taken a little step backward. I do feel guilty for not keeping the blog posts regular at this time of year, but I am really enjoying my university experience, so I'm also kinda glad I've had a small break. But nonetheless, here I am, back at it again with the blog posts.

With summer soon approaching, I have been going a bit crazy with creating my SS17 wardrobe, and in the attempt of trying not to break the crippling student bank, I thought I'd share with you how I've incorporated the new trends of the season with some of last years pieces to create an everyday spring look - for less. 

The only new item within this look is my blue washed denim jeans. I am actually so obsessed with these at the moment, and with just a glimpse of sun, these frequently are pulled out of the draw. They're a three-quarter-length jean, which I think is so funky and adds a little something different to a simple outfit. I also love the shape of these as they are most similar to the ASOS Farleigh Jean which is my holy grail of jeans. In terms of adhering to the SS17 trends, these jeans have a gorgeous ripped/ fringing effect at the ankle, which in my opinion, looks even better after  few wears and washes - the messy chic vibe (so me). 

I paired them with a khaki green dress that is heavily SS16 with the lace up detailing at the neckline. To be honest, I don't find this dress particularly flattering against my body, however I wanted to give it a go as it is super comfy! 

I chose to wear a pair of sandal boots from last year also, as I didn't get a lot of wear out of them because I became almost peep-toe intolerant lol, and I'm still not a fan of the peep-toe. But again, thought I ought to give them a second chance. These are also super comfortable, and the heel is so walkable too...I need something like this but with the toe covered <3 lol. 

I also popped on my beloved sunnies from Hindsight Vintage Sunglasses. Nuff sed.



I am currently sat in bed with my twinkling fairy lights warmly lit above my bed, with Guns N' Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine being the soundtrack of my evening and I must admit I am feeling pretty blissful. To be quite honest, this time of year is the most blissful for me, because the sun is boldly shining even if its a bit chilly; the softly pink blossom on the trees smells like all that's good in the world; and the tiny birds are always chirping away early in the morning when I'm sat with my first cuppa of the day (I'm a morning person if you didn't notice). It also indicates that summer is up and coming, which excites me so thoroughly. I have a couple of great things to look forward to this summer, including a few days in a wood cabin with my wonderful friends and a trip away to Spain for a festival with George (I MEAAAAAAN YES PERLEASE), so that alone will make my summer 100X more special than ever. Aside from assignments and an upcoming exam, I feel particularly great with how things are going at the moment, and I can only hope that all is the same for all my lovely readers. I will definitely be keeping you informed with anything cool I get up to (probs not a lot because I am gonna be extremely poor) but I hope to make some fantastic memories with the people I love most. 



Peace out guys, love to you all x x 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…
