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


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.

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!

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.

| The Truth About Student Life | 20/02/18 |

M O R N I N G 

I almost feel like I've forgotten how to write a blog post, so the format of this post might be a bit 'up in the air'. Therefore, before I delve into things, here's a quick disclaimer... On the 26th December, I uploaded a blog post surrounding the topic of social media, and the influence I feel it has on the mental health of its users. Since then, I have been absent from this blog, and largely absent from social media in general, because I feel as though I've had nothing worth saying recently. I would much rather only upload when I am bringing a little something useful to the internet that even if only one person found it interesting, it would at least have a purpose.
 This leads swiftly on to the subject of this post. Student life, and the truth about how it feels to experience daily life as a young adult, studying at University. I promise to not sugar coat the finer details, and to accurately portray the common notions of being a student. Shall we…
