| The Fashion Tag (15 Questions) | 21/07/17 |

MORNING YOU GORGEOUS BUNCH! Today I thought I would be a little bit cringeeey and step into a blog post that is pretty standard and generic. I admittedly have never done anything like this before, so apologies if this isn't the kind of blog post you'd hoped for haha. So today's blog post is... THE FASHION TAG! Enjoy beauties...

Dress: Jack Wills
Handbag: ASOS
Espadrilles: Dune

1) What is your style?
I would describe my style as quite bohemian, due to the fact that I love loose fitting clothing; neutral colours, and all things tassels and floral which reflect a lot of 70's vibes. However, I do also have 90's grunge tendencies, as mom jeans teamed with an oversized checked shirt, or baggy tees partnered with a thousand rips in my jeans or denim jacket is always right down my street. 

2) Who is your fashion role model?
My fashion role model is absolutely without a doubt, Kate Moss. I am completely obsessed and slightly infatuated by her and her style. I think she has blossomed entirely in the fashion industry, and has made a career for herself that most can only dream of. Her modelling talents, iconic face and personal style have brought me endless inspiration and I will forever credit her for being the inspiration for my biggest passion (and my own career direction hopes).

3) What do you ALWAYS wear?
On a cold day, I always opt for jeans and a jumper because typically I'm not a fond lover of tights and anything exposing my legs slightly when its freezing outside. Furthermore, in the summer I am always wearing a pair of sunglasses - in fact most of the year I will have a pair of sunglasses to hand.

4)  What are your favourite pair of jeans?
My absolute staple pair of jeans currently, are my three quarter-length ASOS blue denim jeans. They fit remarkably snugly and I think they just look awesome and effortlessly cool. 

5) What are your favourite pair of sunglasses?
Without a doubt, my favourite pair of sunglasses are my beloved round vintage ones from Hindsight Vintage Sunglasses. I have owned these for a year and have worn them for the most part of the whole year. They are the perfect fit for my little head, they always make an outfit 100 times better, and I just love the vintage vibes they bring. ULTIMATE SHADES. 

6) What are your favourite pair of shoes?
To be honest, I'm not much of a shoe enthusiast, but if I'm being completely truthful, my favourite pair of shoes are probably a pair of turquoise blue lace up trainers from ASOS that costed me about £20. They are extremely dirty and are incredibly scuffed all over, but they give maximum comfort and I would not give them up for the world.

7) Who inspired you to write about fashion?
I'm not really sure what initially drew me to start writing a fashion blog, but I knew it was a passion of mine so I just sort of decided I wanted to do it. However, I do remember looking at Lottie Bown's blog and thinking, I definitely want to take the plunge and create my own little cosy, tranquil hub on the internet. ---- Link to her blog here.

8) What is your favourite shop/online store?
ASOS. Need I say more?

9) Who is your favourite fashion related YouTuber?
At first thought, it would definitely be Lizzie Hadfield from shotfromthestreet, however I have been loving Megan Ellaby SO FLIPPIN MUCH over the past few months, so I might go as far to say she's overtaken Lizzie ever so slightly at the moment. Lizzie is exceptionally classy and chic, and experiments with a lot of high street versus high end content, which I love - I am also completely obsessed with her blog. Megan, on the other hand, is a lot more 'relatable' in the sense she is a lot more high street focused, and her style is a lot brighter and bolder which really excites me! I will plug Megan's YouTube here,and Lizzie's here.

10) Your wardrobe is mostly full of...?
Checked shirts, tea dresses and Georges clothes.

11) Do you always think about your outfit of the day, or do you just opt for comfort?
It really depends on the day, if I want to have a productive day, whether that be going out and doing stuff, or be sitting in the house writing blog posts and getting uni work/ housework done, then I will plan out myself a nice outfit that makes me feel confident and ready for a productive day ahead. Whereas, if I'm just hanging out, or haven't got any solid plans then I will 100% just throw anything I feel comfortable in, on. I always ensure that I am wearing a comfortable outfit, as I am a huge fan of easy fashion and hate fiddly clothes that need attending to whilst being worn - all about that easy life. :)

12) If you had £5000 to spend on one item, what would you choose?
I really couldn't choose, I would feel completely stupid purchasing something that costs that much, I'd rather get a large ASOS order on the go, than to spend £5000 on one item. However, if I did have to purchase something high-end, it would definitely be a pair of sunglasses as I know I would get my wear out of them, suggesting its a little better value for money. But truly, I could not justify spending that much on one item.

13) Heels or flats?
Flats 100%. The only time I ever wear a pair of heels is if I wear a heeled boot on a night out. Otherwise, you will basically never see me in heels. They're just difficult and annoying lol, even though I am short, I don't care enough to wear heels!

14) What is your current go-to handbag?
I have a black ASOS straw bag that's quite large and I have reached for that a lot recently, especially if I'm having a weekend away with George or going off on a day trip, its super ideal.

15) Do you own anything you haven't ever worn?
Unfortunately, yes. I have a few things I've purchased (mostly tops) and have never worn. How awful of me!!!

That's all for today, thanks for reading!
I hope you enjoyed this post, I know it was a little different to usual, which hopefully was a good thing. See ya'll soon!

Sending peace and love x

| 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.

Winter Coat Styling & The Most Important Aspects Of Life.

Evening everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far and are keeping warm and cosy in this awfully miserable British weather. I also expect that you have seen the John Lewis Christmas Advert for this year, or else you're a slight scrooge and complete disappointment. Watch it here before you continue to read this blog post, if you haven't already indulged in the festivity because it is wildlife-filled and exceeds the word cute.

American politics aside, I am hopeful that you have all had a great week working hard, and are being rewarded with a relaxing weekend so far. There's nothing quite like a chilled out weekend after a busy week. Lush.

This week I thought I would go all guns blazing with a wintery blog post, as I have been desperately waiting to start wearing this gorgeous coat. Although, I'll be wearing from now until probably April before we see sunshine agai…

| 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…
