(Sorry if this post sounds insane, I spent all day doing photography coursework and I think my brain has melted)
HI EVERYONE LONG TIME NO SEE AHHH
I feel like i’m neglecting you and i’m sorry. So here is a quick little outfit of the day post so you don’t all forget that I exist.
Recently I’ve started dressing in long skirts- which is pretty rare for me- I dont really own many long skirts (and I feel kind of like I look like a mad cat lady, but oh well it’s always fun to be original!)
So, I went to the woods the other day to hang all of my jewellery in a tree (please just don’t ask), and I felt like it would be the perfect opportunity to take some outfit photos.
My hat, coat and shoes are all from Topshop, my skirt is from Miss Selfridge, my gloves are cashmere ones from somewhere in Scotland (sorry that’s really not helpful), and my scarf is from accessorize. And i’m sure you all know about my bag by now 😉
Are you all having a great weekend? I look forward to catching up on all of your blog posts really soon ❤
Hi lovelies- its finally half term which means I finally have some time to relax and unwind. I thought that this would be a perfect opportunity to share with you some of the things that I love to do in my spare time (is it sad that most of them revolve around the internet? heh)
The first thing that I absolutely love is the ipad magazine “Just another fashion magazine”. Ipad magazines in general are really fascinating to me- I love how interactive they are- most of them giving off a really ‘bloggish’ feel and style. This one is relatively cheap, and really well put together, I always have fun looking through the articles, and the links to new websites that I would never have found without it! If you have an ipad (or an iphone- not that I have one, but I assume it’s available on there too), definitely check it out on the newsstand- some of the past issues are only 69p if you dont want to commit to spending £1.50 (or however much it is) until you are completely sure whether you like the style or not!
Amelie has always been one of my favourite films. One of my little habits when i’m bored is to watch clips of it on youtube (which usually results in me digging out my dvd and watching the whole film). Anyway, this clip is one of my absolute favourites from the whole film, just because it is so cute. If you’ve never seen Amelie go and watch it now.
As you are probably all aware, it’s London Fashion Week this week, which means I’m constantly online trying to keep up with the shows. I have such great fun doing this- maybe one year i’ll be lucky enough to actually physically attend (we can always hope right ha). You all know I am a huuuge fan of Mulberry- so here are a few photos from their Autumn Winter 2013 show. (Have I ever mentioned that I am completley and totally in love with Cara Delevingne before? But then again, who isn’t?)
And finally, this app is literally taking over my life. I even had a dream about it the other night. It’s called ‘triple town’, and if you’ve never tried it, you have to download it. It’s so simple, but its really fun- i’m not even a person that usually plays games on my phone- but this is brilliant ok. Hah.
The lovely Kareen from www.ziba-blog.com has recently nominated me for a Liebster Award!! It’s such an honour coming from her, and I’ll make a post all about it really soon 🙂
That’s all for now- I hope you all had a great monday!
This week’s style inspiration post has to go to the lovely Alexa Chung. Alexa is an English model/tv presenter, and her style is, in my opinion, perfect.
She tends to be rather androgynous, sticking to dark colours and showing a passion for wearing tailored suits, making her style a very distinctive one. Many people find this charming however, with multiple influential people including Karl Lagerfeld and Vogue’s Anna Wintour describing her as “a phenomenon” and “the Kate Moss of the new generation”.
And of course we cant forget the famous handbag brand Mulberry, that designed, and named the much sought after “Alexa” bag in her honour.
She’s gorgeous and I’m obviously completely jealous.
What do you guys think of Alexa’s style?
(its 5 minutes to midnight, this still counts as a friday post right?) haha!
Ok, I have this really cute aztec print skater dress in my wardrobe that I absolutely adore. Since I wore it today I thought i’d make an outfit of the day post 🙂
I am also completely in love with my coat, I literally live in it at the moment. (wow I just realised how un-colourful I am ha)
The dress has this really cool purple velvet print all over, which didn’t really show up too well in the full length photos. I really love it, and I promise it looks better in real life, as the whole dress seems to change colour as you move!
I went on Polyvore and tried to put the exact outfit together, but I literally just could not find the dress- I got it a while back which probably explains why. I found another similar dress though which I was tempted to buy too 🙂 Oh and the shoes are slightly different- but these ones are actually cheaper.. 😉
So, recently I’ve been super aware of all the velvet pieces that are appearing in our shops, and can I say, I love it.
When I was really young, I vividly remember my mum buying me a dress for christmas, an adorable little dress made of velvet. I used to love this dress so much- it made me feel like a princess and I would insist on wearing it everywhere, my mum literally had to bribe me to wear other clothes. So, I think this must be where my underlying love of the current trend comes from.
I was playing around on polyvore today, and I’ve created a few outfits using different aspects of velvet.
This dress is one of my absolute favourites. Peter pan dresses are a cute style that I have always loved, and I think it really works well with the velvet and the hot colour of 2012, oxblood.
I picked accessories that match the mood of the dress, as well as creating a variation of colour and texture within the outfit.
The idea of velvet blazers make me really happy, and I am going to have to buy one VERY SOON.
Here I decided to pair it with jeans of a similar colour, along with a light coloured top and light coloured matching accessories to break up and highlight the blazer itself.
Blouses with bows are always a cute investment, they go with numerous things and add slightly more interest than a blouse of the same colour without the bow would. Lets just say I have more than I need in my wardrobe… oops!
Annnnd finally, an outfit similar to what you would see me in every single day of my life.
I love love love the combination of skater skirts paired with pretty blouses. I love high heeled boots and structured bags.
Here I have added a cute bangle as an accessory, which is something I wouldn’t usually particularly consider. I dont really have many bangles but this one was just too adorable to ignore.
This skirt is so lovely, I have something similar to it in my own wardrobe and it is one of my absolute favourites.
Here’s a link to my polyvore account, just incase anything here has taken your fancy and you want to know where it’s from! 🙂
So, do you guys like the velvet trend? Let me know because the more comments I get, the more you make my day 🙂
Today I received my beautiful Mulberry handbag that I have wanted forever through the post!
As a girl who loves anything pretty, this bag has been on my wanted list for ages, but originally priced at £670, it was rather out of my price range…
On boxing day however, I was lazing about on my laptop when I happened to click onto the Mulberry website to lust over the pretty things that I couldn’t afford. Then something magical happened. I saw the word sale.
I literally screamed when I saw that my bag, the bag I had lusted over for so long had been reduced by almost 50%. I’m not even kidding, I literally screamed.
And now I have it in my arms and its beautiful and I’m so so so happy. And broke. But happy.
I made a vlog with me rambling about the bag for like 12 hours (ok maybe that’s an exaggeration but ha) its basically an unboxing and I hope you enjoy my awkwardness 🙂
I just realised how many times I say basically and nice in that video wow how embarrassing haha.
Anyway I love it and i’m really happy and it has definitely made my pretty crappy week a lot better 🙂
