One way ride!

Primark DIY Beanie / Ebay John Lennon Style Sunglasses / Vintage Acid Wash Denim Jacket / Primark Bralet / Self Made Boyfriend Shorts / Matalan Socks / Ebay Wedges. 

'Remember me?' screams my boyfriend shorts! They made their last appearance in a grunge look back in February. Because I am so nice, I have decided to give them another chance; it is also another chance for them to woo you with their 'grungey' potential. I made these boyfriend shorts from my brother's pair of jeans at the beginning of this year simply because I wasn't prepared to splash out £28 on a new pair. They are definitely my favourite shorts right now. I'm stuck in one of those obsession phases with a tinge of unpredictability once again.


I haven't worn this bralet in a while so I felt it deserved a little lovin'. Teaming it up with boyfriend shorts and a denim jacket, I am chanelling my inner grunge child yet again. It seems as though wearing socks and sandals has become one of my favourite things to do, I have fallen hard for this rather quirky trend. The sun is not out today but its surprisingly warm, any excuse to bare some legs! 

Have a nice day!

An exception to the rule!

Ebay Flat Top Fedora Hat / DIY Leather Jacket / New Look Maxi Dress / Matalan Black & Gold Belt / New Look Bag / River Island Shoes.

Having had the greatest ineffable infatuation with bright colours and prints for such a long time; I have been completely enveloped in experimenting with other themes within my 'safe bubble' that I forgot black existed. This is the first time ever I have donned all black and I dare say, it feels rather odd! I decided to rock all black today because I have had a couple of  emails the past few weeks from some of you, my lovely readers requesting that I put together an 'all black' outfit. Of course, it was only inevitable that I would deviate a little from the black by throwing in some white sandals. Its all about hopping on the countercultural bandwagon, the kind that appreciates the beauty of simplicity. Do not fear, I will be back to my bright coloured, print mixing psychotic self in my next outfit post.

Wearing all black might feel odd but its not all bad, I actually feel pretty good in this outfit; isn't it ironic? My views on the colour black have been hugely swayed. I am an avid fan of maxi-length anything and this dress is no exception. Teaming up this beautiful maxi dress with the leather jacket adds some toughness to my look; I did however, throw in the white sandals for that soft, girly touch. It is such a beautiful day, let's hope the sun is finally here to stay.

Hope you are all having a nice day!

Jump the fence of mediocrity and become a member of the higher plane, a crossover between geekdom and fashion! Its all about adopting the stereotypically 'geeky' fashions heightening awareness of the hipster subculture. Being a Criminology and Sociology, romcom and crime docu geek, I am rather open about it. Its not something I feel I have to hide as I've been this way all my life. Even though I'm quite enamored by today's fashions, I do like to dress how I feel from time to time. Channeling my inner geek whilst highlighting my predilection for irony. 


This amazing shirt must truly hate me, I completely forgot I even had it. Having been stuck at the back of my wardrobe for nearly a year now, its finally making its grand debut. I paired it up with a pair of Harem pants which I got from H&M a while ago; you all know how much I love roomy pants. Tucking my shirt in like a true geek, I added a simple thin belt to my look to add some character. The whole concept of geek fashion is pretty awesome. Trust me to finish off my look with a pair of funky green monster socks and bright coloured flatforms. Go fourth, Geek out!

Hope you all have a lovely day!

Whatever's hip is not happening!

Ebay Flat Top Fedora Hat / Boohoo.com Striped Blazer / Internacionale Top / New Look Necklace / Thrift Leggings / Primark Satchel / New Look Heels. 

So I have ran back to the comfortable arms of my long coloured hair; I just couldn't cope simply because I got a little too accustomed to it. Its all about enlightenment! Call it an overdose on stripes, I'm rather fond of exaggerating with patterns now and then. This look is a departure from my rather grungy/outrageously colourful tendencies. I chose simple, sophisticated staples, donning stripes from head to toe! I hopped on the countercultural bandwagon a while ago, the kind that appreciates the monochrome trend, oversized denim jackets tied around the waist, 90s grunge and the beaiuty of simplistic pieces paired up with statement staples. Just because it's Spring doesn't mean I'm exempt from wearing black and white; going monochrome and still maintaining the spark of Spring with a hint of colour. 

I kept it quite simple today as I romped around town earlier on. I actually planned this outfit a while ago and I have finally gotten around to wearing it. I got this blazer sometime last year and boy am I glad I got it. Just my luck that the monochrome trend got huge this year. Teaming it up with striped leggings, I was going for a simplistic uptown look. It was only inevitable that I would throw in a bright red top and lipstick to complete my look; colour adds just that little bit more character which I believe every outfit needs. A satchel and a pair of heels later, this spontaneous look was born. It's been raining on and off today so not exactly the perfect Spring weather but hopefully the sun comes back soon.

Hope you are all having a lovely day!

There are no perks to being a wallflower!

Ebay Flat Top Fedora Hat / New Look Studs / Ebay Vintage Dress / Thrift Vintage Belt / New Look Ring / Primark Bag / River Island Sandals. 

I could get used to this; clear blue skies, soft cool breeze and sunshine! Who needs material goods for a distraction when you've got the sun? I do. I am rather poorly as I have a terrible cold; runny nose, never-ending headache, a thousand sneezes per minute, stuffy throat.. you name it, I got it! I just had to blog today as its been two days since my last post; so I've tried to look 'okay' in these photos (I feel horrendous). When I came across this beautiful Vintage dress I fell in love with it instantaneously; it reminds me of 50s sailor dresses. Of course, I went ahead and purchased the dress without hesitation; the gold button detailing is what won me over. It is a year old but I'm only now making its grand debut, wearing it for the first time.

To avoid diverting attention away from the dress, I refrained from jazzing it up with fun accents. I added a vintage belt with the dress to add some character to my look and you can't go wrong with adding big gold studs topping it all off with some cute sandals and small bag. It's been really nice and sunny the past couple of days, even warmer today. Let's hope this fine weather stays.

Hope you are all enjoying the sun!

I never could make out what those damn dots meant!

Ebay Flat Top Fedora Hat / Ebay John Lennon Style Sunglasses / Boohoo.com Playsuit / DIY Necklace / Primark Satchel / River Island Sandals.

 Calm breeze, blue skies and sunshine, spring is definitely here & I couldn't be happier. I am not about to pass up the opportunity of donning some leg-baring frocks. Jumping on the monochrome wagon, today I come at you with this super cute polkadot playsuit which I have had for about 3 years. I'm a sucker for pieces that have classic appeal, a chance for it to woo you with its minimalistic potential. 

 
If you are wondering why my photos have a dark background today, it's because my brother edited them for me so as to bring more focus to the outfit itself and not my surroundings. I paired up the playsuit with my beautiful new River Island sandals which are most certainly my favourite shoes for Spring/Summer. They are comfortable and practical, adding a hint of edge to my look. I threw in a subtle coloured satchel and necklace for that 'girly touch' and the John Lennon style sunglasses to keep things playful. Here is to hoping that the sunshine sticks around for a while.
**In other news, I bought 3 really adorable, spring/summer appropriate dresses today and I can't wait to style them up! It's about time I seek professional help, this 'shopping habit' is out of control..
Hope you are all having a nice day!

Save me some sunlight!

 New Look Scarf / DIY Necklace / New Look Sunglasses / Motel Rocks Floral Body Top / H&M Print Skirt / Matalan Bag / Primark Ankle Strap Wedges.

Having the greatest ineffable infatuation with prints, I can't even express my true adoration for this H&M Skirt. A sycophantic obsession that rapidly matures as the weeks, months, years go by. With its alluring vibrant bright colours, front pleats and perfect fit; this skirt is pretty flawless. Who needs to buy a headband when you own a ton of scarves? I decided to use this scarf as a 'headband' today; just your ordinary girl... with a tinge of unpredictability. As my streak of simplistic outfits seems to be coming to an end, I'm back to my old ways; that nasty little habit of psychotically mixing loud prints.

The easiest way to mix prints is to use prints that are of the same colour family yet I always seem to do the exact opposite. Mixing completely different prints keeps things playful, it allows me to express myself in an unexplainable way. It is such a beautiful day and its actually really warm; Spring has most definitely arrived. Pairing up my skirt with this beautiful Motel floral print body top, I am going for a full on attention grabbing, sunny day appropriate Spring look.You'd think I would then add a black bag to tone down my look but no, I went for a vintage style print bag. I finished off my look with a pair of simple black ankle strap wedges which I snatched from Primark 2 weeks ago for just £12. This is just the beginning of a long 'print mixing' Spring/Summer and now I'm wailing out.

Hope you all have a lovely day.
