It's easy to get into lazy dressing, but there are ways around feeling uninspired and reaching for the same old jeans & a tee - when I find myself doing so, I pick out some printed leggings instead; the perfect way to make it look like you've put some effort into your get-up, while staying comfortable.  This pair from Poprageous are so 'me' - I'm way into my moons, especially as I'm currently obsessing over a book series that features a lot of night & wicca themes!  I added a bit of interest by stacking on the jewels, with a plain top to balance things out - this one from Rebel Circus is super distressed which I love, been after a destroyed tee for ages!

Dreaming up the Ultimate Date


Background image source here - bad photoshopping by me!
I'll be honest - I'm pretty easy to please when it comes to dates; a simple coffee and walk in the park will suffice if there's a little thought put into it, but that doesn't mean I don't fantasise about being whisked off my feet on the date of dreams, so when Match.com challenged me to create the #InternetsBestDate, of course I accepted.
The amount of hours I spend on the Internet every day is a little embarassing (even if my job does entail me sitting at my computer) so I guess you could say that I've seen my fair share of viral content, and I obsess over it as much as the next person, so I thought I'd try and incorporate as many Internet phenomena as I could - here goes!

In my fantasy world I'd start the day in my all white, totally pinterest-worthy house, and opt for a spot of extreme contouring to get that supermodel look, with a fresh-brewed coffee beside me (with some adorable latte art, obviously).  My date arrives in the late-morning, maybe it's my boyfriend, or perhaps in this parallel universe I'm dating a dreamy young Johnny Depp, or the dorky-cute Evan Peters and we drive in some flashy car to a local gourmet café for brunch.  However, this café is no ordinary café, it is instead a Doge café, filled with Shiba Inus (such brunch very doge wow) - think cat café but better.  Afterward, I am whisked away to a private beach where we work on our tans and have a bit of a surf and ice cream (some quirky flavour no doubt) and we finish off our day by riding into the sunset on our mystical unicorns...a girl can dream right?

So what do you guys make of my #InternetsBestDate?  I believe Alex has to up his date game!
Make sure you get involved with the campaign to win the ultimate date with Match.com by retweeting this tweet, and make sure to tweet your #InternetsBestDate ideas with the hashtag, I'll be sure to read them all!

As we're slap bang in the middle of festival season, I thought I'd supply you guys with some inspiration!  I based this outfit around my amazing silver CAT boots as they're the perfect festival boot and thought I'd bring in some colour with my holographic raincoat from Boohoo.  I'm off to Kendal Calling this weekend and this is one of my outfit options, especially as it's looking like it's going to rain!  Who will I see there?
