STYLE SNIPPET // BLUE VELVET


BLAZER* // BOOHOO
LEGGINGS* // BOOHOO
HEELS* // HIDDEN FASHION

Okay so because these photos turned out so atrociously I have one photo I'm okay with posting on here.  I tried to spice it up a little and do some outside photos by myself, and truly failed.  Fashion blogging is all about trial and error though, despite the fact I've been doing this around 3 years I still feel like an amateur!  Even though you can't really see the whole outfit I hope this hasn't been too bad and I promise there'll be better photos next time!

Sunday Summary Week 150

      
1/ A snippet of my unicorn collection (I'm 19 I swear)  2/ OOTD (glasses, sweatshirt, bag)
3/ Lola Lo's Bournemouth with Jess, Amy & Polly  4/ Delilah Dust goodies from Becky White PR!
5/ Wishing I was still in Bournemouth  6/ Mother's day ensemble!

I feel like a right social butterfly at the moment, this past month I've met so many new people and been out and about so much - usually I spend days on end in the house doing nothing so it's all very new to me!  Whilst my snapchat contact list has gone up, my bank balance has definitely suffered, so unfortunately I'll have to tone it down for a little while - don't know how you students do it!

SABBATH MADE ME DO IT

      
BEANIE* // THE REWORK
GLASSES* // ZERO UV
CRYSTAL NECKLACE* // EUPHORIA CREATIONS
BIRD SKULL NECKLACE* // CHELSEA DOLL
BRALET* // ELSIE & FRED
VEST* // HIPS + HAIR
ARM CUFF // VINTAGE
LEGGINGS* // IRON FIST
BOOTS // JEFFREY CAMPBELL

I have literally been living in this top recently - it just goes with everything!  Hopefully you can't tell I was a little hungover when these photos were taken, this is my general feeling rubbish uniform; leggings, a slouchy top and dark sunglasses - nobody will know how much you drank last night.  Not too happy with these photos because they were taken at a train station with people watching and I felt awkward but hope you like them anyway!

VRAI OU FAUX


CHOKER* // CRYSTAL HEAVEN
JACKET* // BOOHOO
TEE* // VRAI OU FAUX
SHORTS* // BRAG VINTAGE
RINGS // RACHAEL SUDLOW, VINTAGE, DIXI*, MARKET, KUKEE*

As the last photoshopped background outfit post went down so well I thought I'd do another for you guys!  I'm not as happy with these as the others but I thought I'd post them anyway to change things up a little.  All the photos were found from Tumblr so obviously there was no hope finding a source, but if you know where the photos originally came from, do not hesitate to let me know as I hate not giving people credit.  Also be sure to leave me a comment as to whether I should do more outfit posts in this style or leave some constructive criticism, I'm always open to improvements!

FEBRUARY HAUL // Drop Dead, New Look, Motel, Missguided


I meant to upload this last week but due to being in Bournemouth I didn't have a spare couple of hours to edit, plus I thought I deserved a bit of a break.  Hope you like the video and see you with a post tomorrow!  Remember to click read more for item links!

THIS IS NO ORDINARY LOVE

      
SUNGLASSES* // ZERO UV
NECKLACE* // CRYSTAL HEAVEN
JUMPER* // CHICWISH
PLAYSUIT* // FINDERS KEEPERS VIA SELF SERVICE
CLUTCH* // PERSUNMALL
SHOES* // MISSGUIDED

Playsuits are definitely one of my favourite pieces to style up - whether it's layering them up or going simple, this gem from Finders Keepers is no exception.  Monochrome is always on trend and I thought my platform sandals from Missguided would go perfectly, then to break it up a bit I threw on my chunky pastel jumper and donned some sunnies aaaand, voila; english spring outfit!

Sunday Summary Week 149

      
1/ Went out in Bournemouth with Jess! 2/ Happy accident photo (Grafea bag)
3/ Love my new tee from The Orphan's Arms 4/ Holographic bag & nails
5 & 6/ My last night in Bournemouth with Jess & Charlie

This week has honestly been the best week of my year so far.  I decided as the weather was so nice I'd take a trip down to Bournemouth to spend some time with my friends at uni there and chill out on the beach.  The latter didn't happen due to crappy weather but I had a truly amazing time with my friends and met some new people too.  It's made me so excited to move out and go to uni and get out of the rut I'm currently in.  Anyway I'm knackered as I was out til 4am four nights in a row in Bournemouth then I had work at 9 yesterday, doing that on 5 hours sleep was not fun so I need to catch up on some z's!

UGH, AS IF!

      
GLASSES* // ZERO UV
COAT* // SHEINSIDE
NECKLACE* // CHELSEA DOLL
TOP* // HERO & CAPE
JEANS* // NEW LOOK
SHOES* // IRON FIST

Sorry for the sparse posts this week but I'm hoping to have posts back daily as of today!  I meant to post a haul on Tuesday but haven't had the time to sit down and get into it as it takes forever and as I mentioned I'm away in Bournemouth.  I'm actually so happy with how these photos turned out - they were taken in front of the garage doors at my Dads house and I'll definitely need to use that backdrop again!
I'm wearing my new jeans from New Look that are ridiculously comfortable and a perfect dupe for the American Apparel easy jeans, but a snip of the price at just £20!  I've also been wearing this Hero & Cape tee non-stop as it's so perfectly slouchy, it goes with everything and of course it's got one of my all time favourite movie quotes on it!

Sunday Summary Week 148

    
1/ Pre-London selfie  2/ Company party with Arabella & Charlotte
3/ Good post day  4/ Throwback to 2010 with Jess


Despite this truly gorgeous weather we're having in England at the moment I'm cooped up in my bedroom trying to get as much blog stuff done as I can because I'm in Bournemouth for the next 4 days yay! Due to this my posts for this week may be a bit sparse so apologies in advance!

GLITTER OVERLOAD

      
GLASSES* // ZERO UV
NECKLACE* // THE LOST LANES
DRESS* // NEW LOOK
TIGHTS* // TIGHTSPLEASE
JELLY SANDALS // ASOS
SATCHEL* // ZATCHELS
RINGS // PERSUNMALL*, RINGS & TINGS*, WANDERLUST*, DIXI*, KUKEE*, TOPSHOP*


I really think that everyone in the world should be given and made to wear a pair of rose-tinted glasses, everything just looks so much prettier through them and the world would definitely be a happier place!  I thought this outfit would be great for the weather we're having in England at the moment because it's nice and summery but it can get a bit cold at times so tights are a nice balance, then in the shade you can throw on a little cardi.  I'm wearing my new favourite bag from Zatchels which I've used every day since I received it.  I thought it would be a little OTT for everyday wear, but I wear a lot of simple colours so it's a perfect fun accent to any combination!
PS. What do you think of my new outfit post layout?  Shall I crop to have two images next to each other or keep to square?
