DENIM FOR DATE NIGHT: TWO LOOKS

This is something I’ve wanted to put together for a while now – the majority of outfits I document on here are relatively casual, and it’s no secret that I live in vintage Levi jeans for the majority of the week. However, on the rare occasion that I want to get dolled up and feel my best – my fight to quit the denim usually fails. I’m very much a jeans and a nice top kind of girl, and probably always will be. If you’re anything like me then your ‘date nights’ are usually quite impromptu – I thought I’d break down two of my fail-safe combinations that I opt for when I’m heading out the door for a slightly fancier affair than worn loungewear and Netflix…

SPRING SATIN & SHOPPING HABITS

I love a simple satin blouse and probably always will – it’s one of those pieces I can wear all year round and it’s never not appropriate. I love how it adds a subtle festive feel to an outfit during the winter months – particularly with a red lip, and some black high waist trousers. However, it’s equally as beautiful for spring/summer with denim and lots of layered jewellery – I’m never without gold accents, they really add a certain charm to a minimal look, which lets face it, is pretty much an everyday occurrence with me…

DENIM FOR DATE NIGHT: A VIDEO

Two ‘date night’ looks for spring, both with vintage denim in mind. If you’re anything like me and you never have enough time to get ready/basically live in high waisted jeans, then you might like this one. Whether it’s a date with someone else, or just taking yourself out for pancakes…

THE KNITTED TANK TOP

A knitted tank top probably sounds like something your old history teacher wore, but bare with me here. This little navy tank was gifted to me when I first started blogging, it was one of the first clothing pieces that I was kindly sent, and I’ve kept it in my collection ever since. Despite it being of the knitted variety, it’s something I only dig out during the warmer months. I’ve worn in plenty of times with high waist jeans and a utility jacket thrown over the top for a really easy daytime look. It’s perfect if you feel like showing a little more skin, whilst keeping you snug at the same time…

THE INSTAGRAM EFFECT

Truth is, people rarely look as polished as they do on Instagram, photos are usually captured when we are feeling the best version of ourselves. When our make up is done, when we are having a good hair day, when we feel a little less bloated than the week before. Instagram is basically like constantly looking at someones best side, their best life, all shot in their best lightIt has the power to make people look like they have all their shit together before the age of twenty five, it can make couples appear happier than they actually are, and it can generally just make life look a little sweeter than it probably is behind the scenes…

SIZE UP, SUIT UP…

I recently stumbled across this check bag in a vintage shop and it was love at first sight – I’m obsessed with checked print accessories at the moment, so finding this gem for under thirty pounds was a very welcome surprise. Vintage shopping is one of my most favourite past times – I just love treasure hunting, and then walking away with something that not everyone is likely to have. It really makes my outfits feel more personal to me, and I can spend hours looking if uninterrupted…

CHARACTER DRESSING

Whenever people ask me about where I get my inspiration from, I always find myself referring to various films or TV series. Characters have inspired me since I was very little – whether it was influencing the way I was acting, certain words I’d become obsessed with, or eventually, the way I decided to dress myself each morning…

MAKING A NEW SPACE HOME

It’s been a none stop couple of weeks, and any kind of a routine has been put to the back burner. We have slowly been settling into the new place, and getting a feel for the new area. It’s still an area that we very much know and love, but everything feels slightly askew when your daily surroundings change. I have to say, being internet free for a few days has been kind of wonderful – that along with the distraction of unpacking have meant that I’ve spent way less time staring at my laptop and scrolling through various social media apps…

A MOVING VLOG

We moved last Friday so I thought I’d vlog the day to look back on – it ended up being more of a music montage but I hope you like it anyway! Can’t wait to get stuck into some new videos when we are settled…

MOVING DAY

Today is moving day, and I’m currently surrounded by cardboard boxes and dirty laundry as I write this – we have lived in this little flat for just over three years now, so leaving is definitely a bittersweet affair. I can’t wait to live in a different area of Manchester and make a new space feel like home, but we have so many memories here that it almost feels like we are leaving something behind. I feel this way about all the places I have ever lived – I’m an incredibly sentimental soul, and it only takes picking up an old paint splattered photograph to set me off…
