A JEWELLERY COLLECTION | MIKAELA LYONS

This post has been a long time coming, and I’m so so excited that I finally get to share what I’ve been working on with Mikaela Lyons behind the blogging scenes. As many of you will be aware, I have a huge admiration for gold jewellery, and most of the pieces that I own, I wear on daily repeat. Good quality gold jewellery has become a huge part of my personal style, and an aspect that I can’t ever see fading. My love for chunky gold accessories very much came from my Grandparents on my mums side – they would wear these amazing antique pieces that I would be memorised by, and I loved that my Gran wore bold pieces, rather than the usual delicate jewellery that seemed to be available for most women…

GROWING UP WITH YOU

I recently read Chloe Plumstead’s post about her relationship, and it echoed so many of my own thoughts and feelings. Like queen Chloe (I mean, please go and read her blog if you don’t already because it’s a breath of real fresh air), I’ve also been in a relationship since I was eighteen. Sam and I met at freshers week whilst studying in Leeds – perhaps the worst possible time to bump into the love of your life, but looking back, I wouldn’t have it any other way…

WHAT’S IN A POST

It’s been a little while since I’ve sat down and written about something other than clothes. I guess I’d started to feel a bit exhausted on the whole, and very uninspired in general. I usually feel this way around this time of year when everything is transitioning – I find it hard to dress myself successfully, let alone to curate my thoughts into something mildly interesting. I don’t believe that everything I post on the internet has to be some sort of groundbreaking piece of writing, but I much prefer the process of putting a blog post together when I feel like it has some sort of purpose behind it…

AN AUTUMNAL NIGHT OUT

I thought I would share something I don’t do all that often on here, and style up an outfit that I might wear for an autumnal night out. I don’t tend to have as many nights out as I used to (Grandma over here), but the love of dressing up and getting ready with friends is something that I’ll never tire of. I’m very much guilty of wearing ‘jeans and a nice top’ whenever I get asked to go out for drinks – I’m a child of the Nineties, and Manchester is pretty low maintenance when it comes to outfit expectations (praise be). I don’t tend to go anywhere that requires me to dress up real fancy, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t make an effort sometimes…

FOR THE LOVE OF CHECK TROUSERS

At this time of year I tend to get myself stuck in a bit of a vintage jeans and a jumper shaped rut. There’s nothing wrong with having an autumn uniform that works, but I can’t imagine it’s very inspiring for you guys to keep seeing the same combination over and over again. Plus, I get bored of it too, and I end up just gravitating towards it out of comfort – a bad blogger habit indeed, and one that I’m forever trying to break. I find that the best way to cut back on the old denim addiction is to introduce a pair of statement trousers…

A SUBTLE WAY TO DO SPORTS LUXE

I usually avoid anything ‘sporty looking’ at all costs – it doesn’t tend to suit me, and I tend to just feel like the living embodiment of the phrase ‘all the gear and no idea’. It takes me back to ill fitting gym attire, and basically bad memories of injuring myself in an attempt to be remotely active. That was until Finery sent me these dream navy trousers with a simple stripe down the sides – classic enough to tie in with the way I like to dress, with a slightly sports luxe edge that sort of makes me feel like a Spice GirlThe latter being a comparison that I can’t ever really be mad at?…
