Tuesday, 25 June 2013

It's been quite difficult these last couple of weeks trying to put together things to wear as half my wardrobe is still at Uni! I brought home the essentials; shorts, t-shirts, jeans etc. but am missing those summer pieces that I desperately need to get my hands back on! I shall force myself at some point this week to go up there and get some stuff...
And so this outfit is a result of digging around in some boxes and reaching into the depths of my wardrobe to see what I can rediscover. I had completely forgotten about this blazer, put away because the boyfriend shape went out - but hurray for me, it's back in again! (now all I need are boyfriend jeans...). What do you think of my monochrome look?

Week in Instagram

Friday, 21 June 2013

I've done a couple of these Instagram posts now so I was thinking about making it a weekly Friday instalment! So I will try to aim to make this a regular weekly occurrence (assuming I have pictures to show you!).
This week was a lovely one catching up family and celebrating my final results coming through! I graduate in a few weeks but I have a law degree!! I'm so excited and emotional that three long hard and happy years have come to and end and look forward to the future! (Graduation pictures are a MUST!).

1. Coffee with Mum 2. On my way to dinner 3. Celebrating results in true English pub style!

1. Lunch with my sister in a lovely restaurant! 2. OOTD 3. Close up of OOTD
 
There weren't many this week so I will try and make a conscious effort to take more this coming week. Also, Instagram announced yesterday (which I'm sure most of you will be aware of by now) video on Instagram. I think the technology is fantastic/impressive but I am sceptical as to whether it takes away a key essence of Instagram. What do you think about the change? We'll have to see I suppose!

White, Studs and Mesh!

Wednesday, 19 June 2013

Sorry for the absence I'm currently between homes and have a lot going on! I hope you like this dress, I wore it recently but didn't get a chance to shoot it so I've reshot for the blog! I think this hits the white trend and has an 'Alexander Wang' feel to it don't you think? It's super comfy and these heels I could walk miles in! Hope you like!

Liebster Award!

Wednesday, 12 June 2013

The lovely Victoria has nominated me for the Liebster Award and so these are the answers to her questions and the questions I am asking those whom I have nominated.
 
 
 

Why did you create your blog? I created my blog because I really like fashion and talking about it! Also, I needed a distraction whilst I was studying for my final exams that didn't require me to leave the house!

How much do you spend for each post? I'm assuming this means time, rather than money. Each post varies! It depends on whether I'm posting about a product or an outfit, usually outfit posts will take a lot longer because I'm never happy with the pictures!

Favourite book? Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. It's an English classic that's been a favourite since school - I've read it several times!

Someone you admire? I really admire Kate Middleton!

Why? I am SO English I know but I really like that way she deals with her new role as a royal.

What does a blog have to have to call your attention? Usually lots of photos! I have a short attention span so am, I hate to admit, a skim reader! So I like posts that are bright and colourful.

Favourite Shop? Topshop!

Dream trip? I road trip around the US or Mexico and Brazil combined into one month.

What would you never post on your blog? Pictures of messy nights out or things that are too personal - no one wants to see or read about that!

What do you like best in the 'blogger' world? For me it has to be the way fashion is interpreted. Magazines tell you what looks good but blogs will tell you why and whether something works or not. I find I get most, if not all, my inspiration from bloggers.

And least? How much time goes into posts! I try and keep up to date as much as I can but sometimes it's not easy coming up with things to post about!

My 11 Random Facts:

1. I am a law student
2. I have two sisters - In fact I'm a triplet!
3. I have size 37.5 feet
4. Olives are my favourite food
5. I was blonde for 5 years before recently changing back to brunette
6. I live on the South Coast of England
7. I currently have tonsillitis!
8. I am 22 next month
9. I have 10 piercings and a tattoo
10. I am not allergic to anything I know of
11. I play classical piano!

My Questions for my nominees:

1. What encouraged you to start your blog?
2. What is your favourite post that you have done?
3. How long have you been blogging for?
4. What is your favourite movie?
5. What is your favourite fashion designer?
6. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
7. What is your favourite blog?
8. What do you most like about blogging?
9. What is your favourite item of clothing?
10. What is your favourite thing to cook?
11. What is your favourite city?

My Nominees:

 
RULES:
 
1. Each person nominated must list 11 facts about themselves
2. Answer the 11 questions set by your tagger
3. Create your own 11 questions
4. Tag up to 11 up-and-coming bloggers (typically under 300 followers)
5. No tag backs!
 
Don't forget to let your nominees know!

Thank you again!

Black on Black.....on Black!

Tuesday, 11 June 2013

I have been told that I have a bit of an obsession with blacks, whites and greys. I don't know whether it is because they are easier to wear and style or they're just a favourite of mine - I would probably guess it's a mix of the two. I am currently obsessed with these little leather shorts I picked up from Zara not so long ago; they go with everything and are perfect for the 'leather trend' (especially if you aren't comfortable in a full-on leather outfit!).
It's started raining again in England after such a lovely sunny week previously so it's back to shooting inside (better than nothing right?!). Hopefully the weather will cheer up again next week so we can get some sun!
What do you think of this outfit? It's really comfortable and so perfect for hot summer days!

Supergas Staples!

Sunday, 9 June 2013

Ok, so I've jumped another a some-what increasingly prominent bandwagon (there are originals thoughts in there somewhere!). I have bought a pair of Supergas They are a replacement for my slightly battered Converse which are not at all as white as these are currently (give it time...) and are increasingly being chosen over other their American counterparts as a basic summer canvas shoe. Have you got a pair? Have you seen The Blonde Salad's versions? (on my wishlist!). Looking forward to giving these staples a go.

Picnic kinda day

Wednesday, 5 June 2013

I've been staying in Southampton this week with the other half and the weather has been really nice these last couple of days so my boyfriend and I decided to pack up some sandwiches and head to the park for a picnic! With the sun shining I managed to squeeze in some photos before my tummy starting growling at me. Hope you like this outfit!

End of year fashion show

Sunday, 2 June 2013

It's finally the end of term and University is coming to an end. My housemate at uni is a fashion student and at the end of the year the graduating class put on a showcase of some of their garments that they've produced for their final year projects. I thought it would be great to show you some of my favourite pieces from their work and what I wore for the event. I was really impressed with some of the designs! What do you think?

What I wore: Top: H&M, Shorts: Zara, Shoes: Zara
