| The Practicality of A Perfect Summer | 19/05/17 |


Whilst spending some time back at my family home, I am sat here listening to 'Stay Gold' by First Aid Kit; drinking a mug of tea from the assortment of teabags I brought back with me; and am reflecting upon the memories attached to the box that is my old bedroom. It's funny how what felt so familiar and such like home, now feels particularly distant from that. It seems as I have grown into more of a woman, the teenage moments have dissipated into nothingness and my old bedroom no longer feels a place of comfort and belonging, but more so a place I can unload my suitcase every once in a while. It is fundamental madness that within 7 months, your life can change so entirely to the extent that the concept of 'home' is so far removed from a physical place, but rather a place within yourself - a sense of relaxation and the feeling of content. ANYWAY, hey, hope you're doing great, and I hope you enjoy this lil post I have in store for you all. Let's begin...

I wanted to share this outfit with you, because of the result of my style rut about a month ago. For a while I was completely stuck for ideas as to what to wear, how to introduce this season's trends into my wardrobe, and lastly how to style up garments from previous season's. I have recently found myself reaching towards garments of a relatively bohemian vibe, and so I have been varying my selection of 'go-to' brands, which leads me to this beautiful tea dress.

I purchased this dress at the very beginning of Spring, alongside a few basics and a couple of floral and floaty dresses. I had heard of the brand Nobody's Child, however was yet to venture into making any purchases from them. But boy was I missing out!!! This dress is honestly gorgeous, it fits so snugly to my body but in a completely flattering way, it pulls in at the waist very elegantly, and is more rounded in areas needing a bit of shape (hips and shoulders primarily). This dress is beautifully made, fits completely true to size and is the perfect combination of pretty and practical - so versatile. I LOVE IT. I cannot sing the praises of Nobody's Child enough, so check them out if you love bohemian style clothing, please!

As I am now mostly freed from University for the next few months, I am hoping that I will be able to create a lot more content for you, which is particularly exciting because I adore the summer months in terms of fashion. I honestly feel I am able to be the most expressive with my style in summer, whereas in winter I am just layered up in jeans and jumpers in hibernation mode! So I hope you have enjoyed reading this post tonight, and that you will keep your eyes peeled for the next to come. FASHION FRIDAY IS OFFICIALLY BACK GUYS! 

Just before I go, in case you aren't aware, I have opened up my very own Etsy shop, where I am selling hand-drawn illustrations and an array of vintage clothing finds. Myself and George have been working hard to set it up for you all, and I hope if you have the time, I'd love for you to check it out! Our shop name is: punkyartparty and I will drop the link here

| Going Back To Basics | 10/10/17 |

Gooood morning, and welcome back to the blog. Today, I wanted to share with you another post from my first fashion photo shoot. This outfit, I feel, is perfect for this transitional period, and is also verging on the smart side of fashion (for me anyway, lol). I really enjoyed piecing together this outfit, and trying to experiment with my personal style. As you all undoubtedly know, I often opt for the comfier garments and that aspect of my style definitely is portrayed through most of my blog posts. But equally, trying something new is exhilarating, particularly with Autumn homing into view so I want to diversify my wardrobe. I am loving the tailored look, and am growing fonder of fitted tops that enhance my body a lot more than a baggy tshirt or oversized jacket would.

Morning everyone, and welcome back to the blog. Today I wanted to share with you a very autumnal outfit, that I am dearly in love with. When it comes to planning outfits to shoot, it can honestly take me hours to complete a single look, but this outfit was a rarity in the sense I rustled it up in about twenty minutes, so I am thrilled with the outcome. As I mentioned in my last post, outfit planning and styling is definitely a love/hate situation for me, so finding an outfit that is fleeky with ease is a wonderful feeling.

So, lets begin with the coat. I am a huge lover of coats, and I am admittedly beginning to accumulate quite the collection of jackets and winter coats, however this is my newest addition to my wardrobe coat-wise, and I picked this up on the Asos website. This pea/military style coat is by New Look and was an incredible price of ab…

| Autumn Is On The Way | 12/09/17 |

I am in absolute shock at how quickly this year is passing us by, how is it already September? As we all know, September is that time of year where everyone goes back to school/college/uni and we begin the much anticipated warm up to hot chocolate, fluffy socks and CHRISTMAS. Fear not, don't run away, I'm not one of those crazy Christmas people who begins to prepare the following Christmas in January, its just something to think about...

Autumn is becoming apparent now, and leaves will soon be falling from the trees, boots and coats will be dusted off from last year, and we will all begin to say those forbidden words, 'I am so cold'. Alongside many, Autumn is one of my favourite times of year, particularly in terms of fashion. I am a huge fan of comfort over style (ironically) so Autumn gives me the perfect excuse to allow my baggy jumpers and checked shirts to pass as fashion pieces. So today, I thought I would share with you all my first composed AW17 look. Please e…
