| Keeping Thing's Simple | 26/05/17 |


I have been loving this change of weather this week; the continuous downpour of rain was just beginning to dampen my mood (pun very much intended), but now that the sun is shining, I feel very much refreshed and ready to provide summer content for you funky lot. 

Before I get cracking, how do we all feel about money? Personally, I find money, and the absence of, utterly stressful. Since leaving home, I've felt overwhelmed at times with the responsibility of handling money; ensuring I have enough money to pay bills on time and so that I never run out. As a student, obviously this can be overbearingly painful at times as student loans aren't the most generous. However, I would honestly love to know if this is it now, for the rest of time, am I going to spend my entire existence feeling concerned about what's in my bank?!?!?!?! WILL THE PAIN EVER END?! Anyway, before I give myself premature grey hair and wrinkles, let's get on with things...

Dress: New Look

I feel like this outfit really captures a typical spring/summer look of mine. I have a tendency to lean towards dresses when the weather brightens up, particularly as I'm not the most keen shorts-wearer. I feel like because I am short and don't have the slimmest thighs ever, that shorts really don't flatter me all that well, and so I am less confident in a pair of denim shorts than a dress or skirt, so come summertime, I regularly opt for a skirt/dress like the one in this post.

Checking out the floor like Kylie Jenner, lmao...

I haven't had this dress for a particularly long time, however this season I have been creating a small collection of plain black dresses in my wardrobe, in both midi and maxi length. They are incredibly versatile and both body-con and jersey dresses provide comfort and a hint of style - easy fashion, my fave. This particular dress I love because of the jersey spaghetti straps and the high neckline. Also, the high split on the leg adds a little something to quite a 'plain Jane' dress. This dress was from New Look, and I must say that I don't frequently visit New Look all that much anymore, as it honestly reminds me of being 15/16 and spending my pocket money in New Look whenever I had enough to make a purchase. But, I am pleasantly surprised by this dress, and I did in fact buy a dress very similar last year from New Look, so if you're on the hunt for a black midi dress, most definitely have a gander in their store, or online!!!

***Quick disclaimer, thanks George for purchasing this dress for me, u did gd man.***

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…

| I'm Feeling Tropical | 15/06/17 |


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

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…

| Autumn Is On The Way | 12/09/17 |

I am in absolute shock at how quickly this year is passing us by, how is it already September? As we all know, September is that time of year where everyone goes back to school/college/uni and we begin the much anticipated warm up to hot chocolate, fluffy socks and CHRISTMAS. Fear not, don't run away, I'm not one of those crazy Christmas people who begins to prepare the following Christmas in January, its just something to think about...

Autumn is becoming apparent now, and leaves will soon be falling from the trees, boots and coats will be dusted off from last year, and we will all begin to say those forbidden words, 'I am so cold'. Alongside many, Autumn is one of my favourite times of year, particularly in terms of fashion. I am a huge fan of comfort over style (ironically) so Autumn gives me the perfect excuse to allow my baggy jumpers and checked shirts to pass as fashion pieces. So today, I thought I would share with you all my first composed AW17 look. Please e…
