| Update: Minimalist Wardrobe | 08/08/17 |

Good Morning all. How are we? Enjoying the summer holidays? 
At last, I have an update for you on how I've been getting on with minimalism and cutting down my wardrobe to a more manageable amount, it wasn't easy and I think I am going to have to do this in stages. Hopefully you'll like this post, do let me know what you think and if you have any tips for de-cluttering I'd love to hear them.

It's a Saturday, a glorious weekend of exciting activities, coffee to takeaway, cinema dates, walks in the park...Not today. Today I decided to begin to de-clutter my wardrobe, and what a task it was. I didn't quite realise how many items of clothing I had, and more to the point, clothes that I literally NEVER wear have been sandwiched between wardrobe essentials in the hope of being picked - poor little fellas. At first thought, I imagined it to be quite fun looking through clothes and neatly organising piles of 'keep, sell and charity', but in reality a fabric explosion had hit my room at 100mph with the abundance of 'maybe' piles swallowing me up.

I have a few under-bed storage boxes, a chest of drawers and a fully-loaded rail of clothes, so I mostly focused on the rail at first - although I did have a little sort through some of my jeans. 

The phrase 'it gets better before it gets worse' was exceptionally accurate for this task, as I ended up piling all of my clothes on my bed and sifting through them, creating infinite 'maybe' piles and vibes of tension and frustration were consuming the room - I think George will very much agree, the absence of a happy gal was very much apparent. I honestly found it so difficult to part with anything, which was definitely to my surprise. Next time I think I will be much more prepared, so I am glad I stuck to sorting through my rail only, or all hell would've been let loose.

Despite the fact I am particularly organised and hate clutter, I found it incredibly challenging to get rid of items from my wardrobe. The thought of 'I may wear this one day' and 'this would look great with some dungarees'...I do not even own dungarees lol. Any excuse to keep a garment, I had persuaded myself was true. I did manage to eventually gather two large bags of clothing to be sold/given away so the wardrobe cleanse was marginally successful. However, I feel as though these clear outs need to be little and regular, so that I can produce a capsule style wardrobe at my own pace, an extremely gradual rate, to prevent a complete teenage meltdown.

This task was 100X more difficult than I anticipated, so as far as an update goes, its very short: I CANT GET RID OF CLOTHES. A diseased woman I deem the appropriate label for this mess of an update. Better luck next time?

Thanks so much for tuning in, see you next time. Peace out x

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…

| I'm Feeling Tropical | 15/06/17 |


In less than a month I am tooting off to Spain for the festival Benicassim with George and some friends, so the next couple of posts are going to be pretty central to outfits relating to festival attire and what I've been wearing during my trip. So, this is the last 'normal' outfit I will be posting for a few weeks, yet to be honest, this is still relatively holiday appropriate. Hope you enjoy.

sorry about the awful brow

The focal point of this post is evidently this insane shirt by ASOS. When I first came across this shirt on the ASOS website, I absolutely fell in love with the back detailing of it, and also the sketchiness(?) that the print provides. I was also really digging the orange and pink vibes, alongside all the other colours proudly displayed on this piece. However, I must say when it arrived by the lovely DPD that knows me very well now (lol) it really didn't loo…

October 21st 2016. An evening of reflection.

So, picture this: A slightly sleep deprived student perched on the step of the backdoor, coffee to hand. The sweet sound of Nick Mulvey's album First Mind complimenting the silence of an empty house. A cold, crisp evening in midst October and a wandering mind. I decided to write this post as an expression of reflection and contentment, a diversion from the usual materialistic posts on fashion items and styling attempts.

I would firstly just like to apologise for not posting in a few weeks, but as you may or may not know, I have just began my university adventure and despite the fact I have only been here three weeks, I feel as though its already been a lifetime of experiences and lessons learned.

First day of uni
University has honestly been the most insane journey so far: the almost sleepless nights; extreme consumption of alcohol and trying to find my way around university and the town I now call home. I have enjoyed every hungover moment and I simply feel like I needed …
