There was a girl in my class once who had this kind of weird lip twitch that she did when she talked… I found it insanely cool and immediately tried to copy it but couldn’t make the habit stick (which I’m now actually glad of), in total honesty I think I only managed one lesson and then I completely forgot to remember (is forgetting to remember a thing?) to do it. You’re probably wondering what the hell I’m going on about but there is a point to this story… You see, the habits we want to adopt are waaayy harder than the bad habits that so quickly take a hold… AND that is the point of my blog post today! TAH DA!!! 🤗
So, this is my fave look from Italy AND I didn’t even plan it, just chucked it together and it worked! Don’t you just LOVE it when that happens? (Lots of excitable caps going on right now.)
Why is this my favourite look I hear you ask? Well. I shall tell you for why… Not only does this outfit mark the first outing of these glorious shoesies but it has also brought life back into this very old pair of trousers. I have had these pants around 6 years!!! And there have been many times when I have been on the verge of throwing them out but something has always just stopped me. They quickly became ‘the holiday pant’ as I didn’t really know how to wear them in everyday life and then this happened! 👆🏼 An outfit which I would actually wear on home soil, including the trousers I have not been able to part with for 6 years. Also, seen as though I am loving a yellow accessory right now, the yellow accent breaking up the monochrome just gives me life… yellow is definitely my colour of the season.
So many reasons to love this outfit.
The sun was shining this weekend in Manchester (as in last weekend when these pics were taken – the weather this weekend sucked!), so I put my happy pants on and drank Prosecco… what else is there to do when the sun is shining really?
Who else thinks these pants are super fun? I am so in love with them, even if some people think I look like a pirate (not mentioning any names), but seriously crushing so hard on them! I, along with the rest of the fashion world, have gone completely ruffle mad, it’s a trend that’s really having a “fashion moment” right now and I have fallen for it hook, line and sinker! (Is that a pirate phrase? I don’t actually know… oh the irony!)
Today’s post is all about thinking outside the box… Just because we are nearing 30 it doesn’t mean we have to dress accordingly. I still love going full on grunge for the day (90’s ponytail included).
Although I have previously stated that I am somewhat of a lazy dresser, I still love an opportunity to experiment… I am a Fashion Graduate after all! I have always been a massive advocate of fashion being something that one should never take too seriously. I personally find great joy in teaming playful outfits together and not taking myself too seriously when it comes to the world of fashion, after all what better way to truly express yourself?
So here’s me looking like a Mel.C wannabe (see what I did there?) circa 1996. Continue reading “Outfit: Yes Plisse”
So, after too many a month procrastinating, my first blog post is finally live and let me tell you, it was not an easy feat to press the publish button. As people who know me are probably aware, I now have considerably shorter hair than this, just showing how long this post has been sat in my drafts (about 7 months to be exact). There are probably 2 main reasons for the delay, 1 being my natural habitat of procrastination and 2 actually feeling embarrassed to post it… There I said it! There are already so many amazing bloggers out there doing such a great job, I doubted that anyone would be interested in what I had to offer but hey, this is my final year in my 20’s and I will not be afraid anymore, because, if nothing else, I… am a grown up!!! Therefore I can’t be scared, OBVS! Continue reading “Outfit: Back to Basics”
