| Festival / Holiday Look No.5 | 18/07/17 |

Morning all and welcome to the last festival/holiday look episode of the saga! I am currently feeling absolutely shattered from my wonderful trip away to Spain with George, Sam and Josh - link to Sam's blog here. I will be keeping you all updated with how my first festival experience was shortly, and what I've been wearing through the week, so keep a look out for some brand new posts all about that. But onto today's post, the final episode...get comfy and enjoy...

Sunglasses: Topshop
Jacket: ASOS
Dress: ASOS
Canvas Trainers: H&M

For those who are a little bit bohemian, I feel like this look could inspire an outfit choice for you. The neutral tones, lace up detailing and layered jewellery adds a real bohemian vibe that I am digging so hard. Unfortunately, I purchased these sunglasses last summer and the dress the summer before that, so these are no longer available. However I will add an alternative pair of shades right here and a similar dress here!

I think this look is utterly ideal for summer holidays or festivals because its undoubtedly versatile. This ASOS jacket can keep you warm in a slight breeze or if you're out in the evening. Equally, if you're sitting down on the floor whether it be sand or grass, you can pop this jacket down on the ground to protect your dress from getting mucky and is ultimately more comfortable. This is especially important if you're wearing a white dress as I am.

The shades I am wearing have a very dark tint to them, so are more appropriate for the sunniest of sunny weather, hence why I am hoping to take them to Spain - they don't get much wear here in the U.K. I love the cat eye detail on these because its quite subtle and doesn't drown your face out too much, preventing you from looking like a small baby wearing huge sunglasses, lol.

The H&M grey canvas pumps I have added to this look are great, particularly if you are going on walks on your holiday, and are obviously perfect for festivals as your pretty sandals aren't going to last 3 minutes in the midst of a rave lol. Because they're canvas, these little shoes are going to keep your little feetsies cool, but also protected from hurting yourself. The rubber sole on these are also very practical because it means if you step in something a bit sharp, you're not going to cut your foot (drastic I know). They're also incredibly comfortable and are easy to style up with shorts and day dresses.

Lastly, this dress. I have owned this dress a few years now, and it always makes its way out of the wardrobe come summer time. I love it so much! In fact, it was starred in one of my very first blog posts. This canvas style dress is relatively short but you're still at a pretty low risk of flashing to the world so fear not, but it does leave you with unavoidably the majority of your legs on display. It's not too tight fitting, so you refrain from getting ridiculously hot and sweaty in it (classy), which also means its super comfy! EASY FASHION, CHECK. Lastly, despite the colour being completely impractical, the pocket details, lace up front, and overall comfort completely surpasses the very small problem with this dress. ITS A YES FROM ME. 

Thanks for reading and thank you to all of you who stuck with me for the entirety of this little saga. I would love to know your thoughts on me doing another saga style set of blog posts, and what kind of thing would you love to see? It would be of so much help if I knew a little more about what my funky readers like to read. Thanks again!

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…
