Disposables : Winter Wonderland

27/12/2016

Winter Wonderland is here to stay until the 2nd January so I feel that sharing these photos with you, is still acceptable. I took them a couple of weeks ago when Lydia and I had a wonder around the magical festivities that were going on in Hyde Park. We didn't have tickets for any of rides, but just walking around and soaking up the atmosphere was enough for me.

Outfit : Sequins

21/12/2016

Jumper : H&M
Jeans : Boohoo
Boots : Dr Martens

This outfit is making me feel so inspired and ready to get back into blogging... let's see how long that lasts!

Anyway this outfit is giving me major sassy / festive vibes and I'm totally digging it, if I say so myself. I never thought I'd be quite in love with a pair of ripped, sequin jeans, as I do right now.  It's a total love affair and I don't care who knows it.

Teamed with a chunky jumper that follows the same tones as the sequins and denim, I think it helps calm the outfit down a little for an everyday look. I'm excited to work these jeans into my wardrobe and experiment a bit more with my style(s).

Outfit : Wanna'be Alexa

16/12/2016


Stripe Jumper - Gap
Denim Skirt - Topshop
Church Boots - Dr Martens

This jumper is one of those items that I can't believe I own. It makes me think how much my style has changed and how much it's going to continue to change. It's no question that I hammer on a lot about not having a clue about how I want to dress or what my 'style' is, but for the meantime items like this make me happy.

It's most certainly a very good dupe of the notorious Gucci jumper that the likes of Alexa Chung and Alexandra Shulman have of course been spotted in. I'm currently finding it difficult to wear but I'm sure that has something to do with the fact I have to dress 'smart and minimal' for work. Somehow I don't think this jumper fits into those categories.

I am on the other hand excited to work this piece in my wardrobe, maybe layered underneath dressing, or with a pair of 501's? Let me know what you think by commenting below.

Outfit : Velvet Ruffles

09/12/2016

 
T-Bars - Dr Martens
Glittery socks - Topshop

First of all I need to learn to stand up straight, but in my defence it was raining when we took these photos. Anyway back to the outfit, this is my 2 trends in 1 outfit and I felt hella sassy.
I'm not typically one to follow trends and if I do then I like to work it into my existing wardrobe and make it suit me and my style (isn't that we what we all say?).

This ruffle tee has given me a new lease of life and it's so bloody girly. I don't know whether it's the 'Molly Goddard' vibes that I'm trying to squeeze out of it, but I love it and want to wear it all the time. I added a long sleeve top underneath due to the miserable weather but I like how it turned out and I'm excited to try pair different items together. 

As for the culottes, I'm in love with these too! Normally I would've gone for black but as I have the famous pleated culottes from Topshop, I wanted to mix it up with this gorgeous deep blue colour. I can't wait to wear them for nights out during this festive season but also with baggy vintage tees and huge jumpers.

What are your fave new pieces?

Life : Disposables Update

07/12/2016







A few photos of things I've got up to in the past couple of months - mainly wondering round London on my days off. I've bought 2 new disposables so once I've used those, I'll share them on here too.

Outfit : Shearling and Stripes

30/11/2016

Dr Martens


Today outfit post is a very casual and very comfy one because that's what winter dressing is all about. As much as I would love to be a girl who can wake up in a morning and make really amazing outfit choices, I'm not. I wake up and all I can think is how I can resemble the cosiness of my bed into that of an outfit. I think I'm close to mastering it.

This shearling jacket has been a welcome addition to my coat-drobe (can I even call that a thing?). I'm very fussy when it comes to coats and jackets, then as soon as the colder months roll around, I feel like I don't own any! This jacket isn't as thick as I would like (again I'm very fussy) but it does mean I'm still able to layer to my hearts content without looking too bulky. Plus it has silver hardware and makes me feel like a badass, so it's a winner in my eyes.

Everything else about the outfit is pretty basic but sometimes that's all a girl needs. A striped jumper, some skinny jeans and cosy biker jacket and she's good to go.

The 'if I was rich' wishlist

25/11/2016



With Christmas only weeks away and my parents asking for my list for Santa (full on festive I know) I thought I'd put together a wishlist of things I'd love to get my hands on if I was, well, rolling in it.

Firstly the Naga Skull Ring would be a wonderful addition to jazz up my fingers and sit nicely against my other rings. I don't own anything from The Great Frog yet but I need one of everything please.

After seeing Brittany Bathgate with this bag, I knew I needed it in my life. I'm not one for bags (personally more of a shoe gal) but I the cost per wear on these items become ridiculous really. It's the perfect shape, you're able to carry all the essentials whilst still looking super stylish.

Last but by no means least, the Hunk Jumper. Last season we saw the grey version with multiple mascots dawning the front, whilst this season we're being introduced to more and more characters. Made from Merino wool this would be one incredible soft jumper that I would wear until it was on it's last threads. If you're signed up to their mailing list they've sent out a secret sale code!


Wishlists are my fave this time of year so I'd love to see what everyone else is lusting after!

Holidays are coming : Boohoo edit

24/11/2016

The Holidays are most definitely coming and there is nothing you can do to stop it!

Boohoo surprised me with the most wonderful Christmas package and it made me feel all festive and wonderful. If you didn't already know (as if I don't bang on about it enough) I'm a Student Ambassador for Boohoo hence the lovely gift below.

Inside the parcel was a Maltesers Advent Calendar which I'm currently debating eating all the chocolate at once, your standard sassy christmas card and some other goodies. Including a 'Santa on Fleek' jumper which you can find here, as well as a matching choker set which you can also find here.

My fave part is the personalised tree decoration that I will be hanging in my room, all year round, because why the hell not?! There was also a gorgeous highlighter and I'm so excited to use it, plus it's the time for glitter, sequins and tinsel so the more the merrier (excuse the pun).

After receiving this package, it's made me feel very festive and I'm definitely feeling the holiday spirit. I just want to go to cuddle up in bed with my santa jumper on with a big mug of hot chocolate and watch Elf... can I get anymore cliche if I tried?!

Vintage Levis

17/11/2016



501's - Vintage
Velvet Bomber - Boohoo

I'm here to share this amazing t-shirt I picked up from the Levi store on Carnaby Street the last weekend whilst shopping for Christmas presents...guilty.
The tees are super soft but as ever with the brand, I'm sure it'll only get better with age. Like wise with their other items, it's still heavily influenced by their vintage archives which I'm forever in love with. Being something I can wear to work and casual is perfect, making it a staple in my wardrobe.

Onto the jacket and it's one hell of a jacket. Velvet, tick. Quilted, tick. Bomber, tick. Warm and cosy, tick. I'm so bloody happy to have this in my possession because it makes me feel so sassy. It's the deepest blue colour which in my opinion is fabulous for all year round and it'll work wonderfully with the rest of my wardrobe (which I'm currently having a mild meltdown over). You're definitely going to see it on here a lot.

Outfit : Faux Fur

11/11/2016

(Moon face emoji or what?!)
Faux Fur Coat - Vintage
Stripe pink tee - Charity Shop
Skinny Jeans - Boohoo
Reeboks - Depop
Bag - Eastpack

Just a quick outfit post from the other weekend when I had one of the most Sunday'ish Sundays. There's lots of pink going on which I'm obviously not complaining about and with a faux fur coat chucked over an otherwise plain outfit, I think it adds an autumnal feel to it all. I hate to admit it, but I really like this outfit for how quickly it got thrown on; go me.

Outfit : Yellow, Pink and Grey

02/11/2016

Scarf - Zara 
Tee- Carhartt
Skirt - Beyond Retro (similar)
Jacket - Cow 
T-Bars - Dr Martens

Another outfit post taken by my wonderful boyfriend, Ryan. I mean, he's got a new camera and he came to London for the weekend, what else were we gonna do?!

This outfit actually turned out a lot nicer than I first thought. You know when you have an idea in your head but as soon as you try it on, you look / feel like a potato? Well that's what I thought was going to happen here, so you can imagine my delight when I looked in the mirror and thought 'damn girl, this is so you'. 

I bought this skirt from Beyond Retro a couple weeks back as an alternative for work but knew I wanted to work it into a casual look too. Adding a pink Carhartt tee, mixing in some yellows, creams and a black leather jacket it all sounds like too much but I'm so happy with how it turned out and most importantly, how good I felt in it.

Here's to outfits that make you feel like you can conquer anything.
