GOOD BYE

So, that tittle is technically a lie as I’m not actually leaving… I’m just re-locating. Over to blogger, with a new domain and what not. Blogger just seemed to be more practical for what I wanted and I feel a fresh space for my blog is exactly what I needed. I also have a tone of posts already lined up and scheduled so it’s going to have more regular and better content.

I hope to see you all over there. Adios amigos x

Sandals £24.99 – New Look

I live in chunky boots so finding a sandal that I like is never the easiest mission so when I saw these sitting in the window of my local New Look I was all over ’em. They’re also perfecto for the transitional weather as you can still wear them with ankle socks and tights. I don’t normally like New Look but there’s no denying their shoe game is on point. Always bringing out a thrifty alternative to a bloggers fave.. think back to the Coltrane dupes for a mere £25 and you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.

January Shopping

January Shopping
Not quite ‘new year, new me’ worthy but considering I used to find minimalist clothing unoriginal and overrated I’ve found myself not only jumping on the bandwagon but taking a firm seat at the front lately. Statement pieces are all well and good but key word being statement; Once you’ve made it, bam, who wants to see it again, nobody right?
Whereas crisp textures and simplistic designs can be worn effortlessly time and time again. Why would I not want that?
It’s like a revolution but theres only so many plain white tees a girl can own before this gets boring, surely?

Red Coat and Leather

The arrival of Autumn has only enhanced my already all black everything attitude so this coat adds the perfect amount of colour. The check ties in perfectly for a subtle grunge inspired outfit but the fit of the coat juxtaposes the entirety of it with an almost… boxy fit?

I took these snaps before attending a bloggers briefing for CFW with Taylor and Ella (who kindly took this picture for me) and the event was held in Cardiff bay which explains why there is so much water behind me instead of the usual (boring) brick wall. The whole idea of outfit snapping in such an aesthetically pleasing location is a breeze, right? Right. The literal sense though, a cold, windy breeze.

This picture is hideous and I’m not completely sold on the outfit but the jacket is the equivalent to wearing a hug which is always ideal for a day at uni.

River Island have seriously upped their game in the past 12 months and it’s becoming a go-to shop of mine. Although my shopping experience would be far more pleasant if they didn’t play Rihanna tracks back-to-back on full volume. I understand her collection is pretty decent but that gal is seriously overrated – sorry RiRi fans!

London Fashion Week – Street Style Part 1

I’m going to divide these street style posts into 2 instead of overwhelming you with far too many pictures than my WiFi can handle. You may also notice some familiar faces lurking about in these photos. There’s so many different styles roaming around on the cobble stones of Somerset house that its almost impossible to appreciate them all. It wasn’t until I left and took it all in that I realised I was oozing with inspiration and ideas for the season ahead.

London Fashion Week | OOTD

Fashion Week, the only place that feels like home without actually being at home. Admittedly a little small fish, big pond kinda feel whilst walking through the courtyard but everyone has their own style and it works like one big unconventional, well dressed family.

A baroque-animal print hybrid on a bomber style jacket all sounds a bit dreadful (and a lot may say it looks equally as bad) but I needed it in my life and I think it dresses up a simple outfit pretty well.  It was also practical as it was casual enough to run around London but still had a little extra something for Somerset House.
