Holla April, it’s time we got some Spring shopping done! My style is all over the place recently so I’m going back to basics with smocks and breton tees.. and if they aren’t grey or black or some shade in between, I’m not interested. Spring is also the time for investment pieces so I think it’s about time I finally gave in and got myself that Rocco bag. Don’t you agree?
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?
Life is crazy at the minute; probably pretty average to the normal person but for a sloth like me it’s a whole different story. I’ve obviously still had enough time to put together a shopping list of things I need asap though.
I’ve been interning at House of Holland and after staring at that floral parka, I’ve never wanted something more in my entire life. I’m also dying for a pair of Vagabonds but I can’t justify another pair of black boots.
It’s FINALLY time to start waving hello to my favourite seasons, Autumn and Winter! Firstly, I have to bare that weird-unpredictable in between weather that September normally holds. Luckily, it’s nothing us Brits can’t handle as seasons here are often blurred and rain is an all year round kinda thing.
I also start uni this month so I’m hoping to pick up plenty of comfy and casual pieces to see me through long days of lectures and whatever else my Fashion Promotion degree has to throw at me. I can’t wait to get started but first I need to get through the stress of planning outfits for Fashion Week. I wish I started planning it sooner but I just don’t have it in my soul to be organised, however hard I try.
Side note: I haven’t done any outfit posts in a while but I get my new camera soon so that should solve my ‘I refuse to upload this picture because the quality is awful and I look like a goose’ problem, or at least half of it… I’ll have to live with looking like a goose unfortunately.
I normally blog quite regularly on what items I’m currently lusting after but I’m so obsessed with mixing grunge and bohemian styles together that everything I want involves a kimono and some kind of pleather lately. I didn’t want to bore you all with my punk/boohoo infatuations but I don’t think I can help myself. I’m still not over holographic accessories either and that bag (008) is a dream.
I don’t have a lot to say about this months shopping list other than, it’s my birthday this month so it’s completely justified that I buy everything. Especially the Coltrane boots, I’ve had my eyes on them bad boys for months. Gimmmeee.
I think that tie dye jumper would look pimping over a black dress (005) – and if you know me, you’ll know how much I appreciate a good tie dye.
PS – I left out 006, but I promise, I can count.. just about.
Rewind three years and bold patterns and eccentric accessories would be my idea of a nightmare, but if it’s anything I’ve learnt in those three years it’s that; bold prints can be the most satisfying ways of expressing your creativity.
You don’t need confidence to rock a statement piece, I wear them all the time and I’m the most self conscious person from here to Jupiter. However, I’d rather have my insecurities hidden behind a galaxy print skirt and dozens of dandelions, whilst dripping in gold chains and roses. Logic.
Also, holding onto a Chanel clutch can never be bad for the ego, right?
