| Festival / Holiday Look No.1 | 20/06/17 |


HELLO HELLO!

So this is going to be a little 'saga' of looks I've selected that I think would be super appropriate for your summer holidays, or equally just as good as a festival outfit. I am aiming to make them as realistic as possible, in the sense that each outfit is something that I would actually wear on holiday, and also so that each look is relatively affordable and could incorporate items you already have hidden in your wardrobe, alongside more trend-based pieces. Hopefully, this will be a success and may inspire you while planning your own holiday outfits. I don't know about you guys, but I find it ever so tedious trying to plan holiday outfits, so I feel like this would help me! Lastly, I am going away soon myself, so I am hoping to use these blog posts to document outfit ideas that I will be able to wear myself! ENJOY.

Espadrilles: ASOS



I feel as though this look is quite a girly one, and incorporates a lot of feminine vibes. The off the shoulder detailing on this cropped top is particularly flattering on the chest and collarbone area, and sits elegantly across the shoulders. The lace up detailing is very on trend at the moment, and adds a bit of cool chic to the outfit, which breaks it up from being completely girly, so its more versatile. I also think for such an inexpensive piece, you can't really go wrong with this. 

This skirt style is VERY on trend at the moment, and I'm loving it. It is almost like the skirt equivalent of a tea dress, as it is so floaty and feminine, and isn't too fitted. It sits nicely over the bum and hips, and has a slightly slim fit, but then as it is more floaty at the bottom, it looks super pretty and summery. Also, the diagonal ruffling along the front and tie up detailing adds to the girly vibe, alongside the ditsy floral print. This is definitely a SS17 piece that you cannot get away from. I personally love orange at the moment, and is one of the only bright colours I am truly obsessed with. However, these ditsy print mini skirts are everywhere at the moment, and you can get all kinds of designs and colours in most high street stores and online. The only downside of this skirt is that it can be a little temperamental in the wind because it is so light and airy, but as long as you're careful, you'll have no worries and it hasn't prevented me from wearing it on every occasion I can!

Lastly, espadrilles. There are thousands of styles of espadrilles on the market at the moment, and I think you can discover the pair for you for a range of prices, colours and styles. I personally love the lace up style of espadrille, as I think they're especially flattering on the ankle and up your calf, especially if your legs aren't super skinny, I think this can really bode well for you. I have been loving wearing these as they are so comfortable, although I would say you really have to knot them at the back, rather than attempting a pretty bow because they have a tendency to loosen and fall down otherwise. Although I think if you spent a little more on a pair, you would most likely avoid this issue as these were around the £20 price mark, so very affordable.



I hope you've all enjoyed look number one of this little saga, and do let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Thanks so much for reading as always!

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…
