Reasoning behind my absence…

Hello Lovelies! 

First off, I’m so so so sorry with how I’ve neglected my blog! I’ve had a lot going on recently, and I didn’t realise how much time had passed until I flicked onto my blog and realised how long ago my last blog post was!  Since then I’ve been on my holiday’s to the lovely Newquay, and received the amazing news that I got into Manchester School of Art / Manchester Metropolitan University! I’m so happy, and so proud of myself, it just meant that I have had a lot of prep to do, thus distracting me from keeping up with my blog! I’m sorry it got put back, but my education has to come first. I will try to make up to you all in the near future, I promise!

Hello Everyone!

Well, with it being festival season in all it’s glory in the UK, and with me booking my return to the lovely boardmasters festival I thought I would do a festival inspired OOTD, I was going to do a lookbook, but it didn’t really work out, so here is just a simple, effortless, festival inspired OOTD for you all!

DSCN7012 DSCN7017DSCN7015So here is my festival inspired OOTD, you can definitely sense some of the festival fibes, from the Dr Martens too the high waisted Levi’s. This outfit is a festival classic, and one that you could never go wrong with. I’m wearing a plain black bodysuit with a kimono over the top to add a bit of boho edge that is also something you always see roaming around the festival grounds. I really like this look as it’s really classic and effortless, yet it screams good ol’ festival vibes! Hope you all enjoyed this, leave your opinion in the comments bellow :)bannerfans_11095254 (1)

Here is my cute, casual and comfortable OOTD, that I jazzed up a bit with the near floor length kimono / cover up, which I love! The colours in it of the pinks, purples and oranges are perfect for summer! Underneath I have worn my perfect distressed boyfriend jeans, which where love at first sight. I’ve been looking for a pair like this for ages, and these where the perfect wash and fit, and the distressing isn’t too ott! To keep the look casual I wore my white tank top, with my turquoise bralet underneath so it is visible, then tied that colour in with my sandals! I think this look really works for those cooler summer days in the oh so unpredictable British summer! I love the colours, and the effortless look that it gives off. Let me know in the comments what you all think!

My Style Inspirations.

Hello Everyone!

Now, here is something  a little bit different from me, it’s a discussion around my favourite Style inspirations. Now, I do get a lot of my inspiration from what I see people wearing on the streets – street style, but I do have a few icons that inspire me in terms of what I wear and how I style it. Now this is something different from my usual blog style, so let me know what you guys think in the comments. Now, without further ado, LET’S GET STARTED!

 


alexa-chung-dungarees-1 chungNow first up, no doubt is Alexa Chung. now I know that she is on pretty much every fashionista’s inspiration list. But who cares, she is on mine also! I love how effortless she looks, but at the same time looks well put together. And the way she mixes very feminine pieces with masculine ones, to create a really edgy look, for example teaming a dainty floaty skirt with a black leather biker jacket (bottom left) Another thing she does really well, that I like to do also is her use of vintage items to make her look more unique. That is something I love to do, and was mostly inspire to by the women herself.

Next up we have the lovely Rita Ora, and I am obsessed with her edgy urban style. Ever since she popped up on the scene with Tinie Tempah in ‘R.I.P’, I have kept an eye on her simply because I love her urban street style! Mixing ripped boyfriend jeans with flannel shirts is something that I do often and love, so whenever I’m feeling a bit more urban I will definitely look  to her for inspiration, and when I move to Manchester for University in September, I will be rocking these sorts of looks even more.

Here we have the ever beautiful, Florence Welch, of the amazing band Florence and the Machine, whose music I adore. Now I love her hippie / boho style, and how original she is. Here she looks so tailored and edgy in this amazing outfit. She inspires me in so many ways, especially when I don’t know what to wear to a festival, as she is the queen of festival style:

On the celebrity front that is about it, but there are many Bloggers and Youtubers that inspire just as much if not more than these Celebrities do, I will list them below:

Sammi at ‘Beautycrush’ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCooQN8b9yPeNQgUFa9S5xew  (her new video on her style inspirations, inspired me too do this post)

Becca Rose https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfQVxBesyGHkh2pa1cYeCJA Very elegant, feminine and put together – love her style!

Jenn  Im at ‘Clothes Encounters’ https://www.youtube.com/user/clothesencounters/ Edgy and cool style, she rocks trends perfectly.

 

So guys, that’s about it for my style inspirations! Hope you all enjoyed this! Let me know in the comments what you thought! I will be back with my normal usual stuff but today is one miserable day in England so I wasn’t up too it, so I have shared with you this instead!

Monki Haul!

Hello everyone!

My Monki order has arrived! Yay yay yay! I’m so excited too show you the few  bits that I’ve picked up! If your not sure what Monki is, it’s an international clothing store and website that sells quirky and original pieces at very affordable prices that are brilliant quality. I had a sneaky look on the website and discovered they had a sale… I have no will power so an order was placed, which is what has brought us here! All the items fit lovely, they fall really flatteringly on your body, (which is hard to find nowadays!) and are very original designs. The shipping too the UK cost me £6, which I thought was a bit steep, but the package was coming from Denmark, so I guess in retrospect it really isn’t that bad. The order totalled to £33, and I think I got some real good bargains, and if you go on to the site now, they may be a chance that some of these items are still in stock! (If your interested) So lets get started!DSCN6966DSCN6965

First up we have this ‘Don’t be a square’ t shirt. I think this is my favourite one, because I just love that saying! As a ‘square’ is someone who is perfect, and conforms to all social rules (Freud would call it giving in to your superego – sorry getting a bit psychoanalytical…) and by saying don’t, it’s like defying social rules, being different and individual, which is something that I stand for passionately.  So that’s the deep meaning behind this buy, on and it was the bargain price off £3! There was no way I was leaving it at that price.

Next up we have this massive oversized t-shirt, that has ‘in between’ written on the front and on the sleeves. I love this t-shirt, I just kind of wished I got it in a smaller size because it is a bit too big, but I still love it to wear with jeans or shorts, well with any tight fitting bottoms it would make a really cool casual outfit. It cost only £5! For what you get, it’s a brilliant price, and is actually a really cool piece.

And lastly on the t-shirts we have this zodiac animal print t-shirt (which I am actually wearing as I am writing this) I adore this top! It’s 100% cotton, meaning it’s super soft and comfortable, and the loose fit is really flattering on my body. I also think the print is really unique and cool, it just looks like a doodle  that’s unfinished and I love that effortless look it gives. I really love pieces like this to layer up in winter and wear casually in summer with some cool colourful trousers or shorts for a really cool effortless look that I’m really into at the moment. Less is more and all that jazz.DSCN6974 DSCN6977

The final two pieces that I bought are both of the cropped sweater variety, and I adore them both. The first one is the ‘Verona sweat’ and consists of and animal print with prisms and weird shapes, this fits perfectly, like all the others and the print is similar to the zodiac t shirt, which is probably why I love this so much. Team it with pretty much anything high waisted and you’re good to go! Secondly we have the ‘Chain Reaction’ sweater, which is a bit less cropped.  I fell in love with the print on this, I had never seen anything like it before and thought it was really cool and casual, and fingers crossed if I get into Uni, these are the everyday casual staple pieces that I will need with me. Oh, and these were both £8 each, so again a bargain! Especially for the quality.

 

Hope you all enjoyed this haul! Let me know in the comments, if you liked anything that I bought and if you like Monki’s products, just as I do. OH, and if you haven’t checked them out before, I urge you too… here is the link to make it even easier on you guys – http://www.monki.com/

OOTD | Flower Power

Hello Everyone!

I’M BACK! Yay, yay, yay! I’ve been looking forward too getting back into my blog for so long, I am so sorry for being so vacant! You’ve got A level exams to blame for that. nightmare. But now that they are over,  my blog has my full attention! So I’m back with a very cute #OOTD! That I loooocve, hope you enjoy!

Here is my very summery, floral OOTD! It was really hot here in the UK (shocker I know) so I wanted something comfortable. These shorts are the most comfortable shorts I own, because of the wide leg, and loose fitting, which also makes them super duper flattering on any figure.  But I especially recommend shorts of this style if you have confidence problems with your legs, as they makes them look loads slimmer! These were around £10 from Primark, but it was quite a while back. I have teamed them by laying a racer back black crop top from Topshop with this lace floral t shirt from Primark. I really love the layered look this gives, and it gave me the option of covering up a bit without becoming too hot and uncomfortable.

DSCN6944DSCN6951

 

I finished the look off with these amazing round sunnies, for a very retro vibe and my white flatform shoes for some extra hight, and to elongate my legs a little because that’s where most of my body issues stem from. So there it is, today’s OTTD! Hope you guys enjoyed this, and I hope this is a good post for me to come back with! I have missed doing this, so hopefully it will all be back on track in no time!
