| Embracing Your Style & Yourself | 07/07/17 |

I love this quote. I was sat on the end of my bed, questioning how I could write a blog post that surrounded the subject of embracing yourself and your style. I began to scour the web and Pinterest pages for words of wisdom and inspirational quotes, because we all love an inspirational quote. I stumbled across this one, and it caught me dead in my tracks - I mean, I wasn't going anywhere I was sat quite still drinking my 42nd cup of tea of the day, but allow the metaphor to stand bold in all its glory. I think that this quote is so significant because it speaks the absolute truth. A non-sugar coated perspective on the importance of embracing who you are unapologetically. 

We all share the natural process of birth and death, and we all belong on the same planet that we call home. But that's as far as we are comparable to every other human being. As a species, we are cornered into stereotypes and into expectations, denying ourselves of the very fact that we are all unique in our own personal way. In my opinion, the differences we have from one another are what makes us a person, more so than a collection of cells, randomly selected to be a part of the world. We each share different upbringings, social skills and experiences that shape us to become who we are. So to not embrace that, would be to deny ourselves of who we are. Therefore, this quote speaks volumes because it is in fact the individual qualities and 'weird' mannerisms of ours that enable us to be strong people, and to dominate the world in our own way.

On a slightly more fashion based level, embracing our personal style is important, and relevant. The way we present ourselves in society marks a segment of our personality and our views on the world. So ensuring we are portraying ourselves accurately and honestly depends on the fashion choices we make, and deciphers whether we are choosing to hide behind trends to 'fit in', or whether we choose to embrace who we are by wearing that leather jacket covered in sentimental pin badges, or our beloved yet torn apart pair of converse. Our imperfections speak loudly, but so do our fashion choices. Therefore, I would recommend highly that you all embrace yourself and your personal style, in the hope we can all feel a little more comforted by the way we are portraying ourselves to the world, and by being honest with who we are. After all, we are only here once, and we owe it to ourselves to make the most of our time on this incredible planet we call home.

Thank you for reading, and see you again next time. Sending peace and love to all you lovely readers and all of those close to your heart.

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.

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 …

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…
