SUMMER LAYERS

The words ‘Summer’ and ‘layers’ don’t really sound right together in the same breath – the idea of layers of clothing under the hot sun is enough to bring me out in a sweat already. Granted, this outfit did bring me out in a sweat, sorry if that’s TMI but just trying to keep it real over here. It was a 27 degree day, and I think I’d have been too hot no matter what the ensemble…

GIRLS SUPPORT GIRLS | #1

I realised recently that I follow so many wonderful ladies, and get inspired by them daily – it only seems fair to share the love and give you a little run down of my faves. I’m going to turn this into a regular affair, in which I discuss all different kinds of women I’m currently inspired by and why – this could be related to music, fashion, Instagram, mental illness – absolutely anything. I hope you like the idea, as I feel that it’s something I’m going to really enjoy working on! Without further adieu, I thought I’d kick start things with a few of my favourite bloggers babes…

WHITE DUNGAREES

I’m a big fan of dungarees in all shapes and sizes – I found these in a vintage shop in Manchester when I first moved here, and they are always a go-to Summer staple when things heat up. There’s something really chic and effortless about white denim in general, particularly when paired with fail-safe stripes and a masculine pair of sandals…

A FEW THINGS

I got to thinking about what I want to accomplish this year and realised that most of the things were relatively normal/everyday things for the average person. Sometimes anxiety gets the better of me (no matter how hard I resist), and in turn, the most mundane tasks can become emotionally and physically exhausting. This doesn’t usually prevent me from achieving things, I’m very much a stubborn person who goes after what they want, but that’s not to say I don’t have a tough time getting there. I thought I’d curate a few things that have been on my mind lately, and share how any anxious thoughts have been affecting them…

A CUT ABOVE

If you’ve followed my outfits for a little while, then you may have noticed that jeans and a blouse are my ultimate go-to attire. I’ve discovered it just works for me and makes me feel the most confident – and I don’t really tend to sway to much from it. It’s not that I don’t admire and lust after other combinations, but rather just a sense of being happy with where my personal style is at…

SUMMER ESSENTIALS

As the temperature changes, so does my beauty routine and the type of products that end up being in my radar. I’m suddenly drawn to anything that promises me glowy skin and that long lasting freshness (starting to sound like a toothpaste advert aren’t I) with minimal effort. Without further ado, here’s a little run down of this years holy grail Summer products so far – the ones that have worked their way into my everyday routine, and will be used religiously throughout the months ahead…

SUNRISE | SEZANE IN PARIS

Do you ever put on an item of clothing and instantly feel better? Whether it’s that jumper that’s been passed down through your family that adds a certain comfort, or that outrageously bright t-shirt that radiates happiness wherever you go. I definitely think certain items of clothing naturally hold different sentiments – hence the reason I love vintage clothing so much. I like to imagine a narrative in my head that brings the clothing to life and adds personality to my outfits…

THOMAS SABO | SUMMER SKIN

Jewellery is such a personal thing for all of us – some can’t leave for the day without their layers of rings and necklaces, others just have that one special item they never remove, they sleep in it/shower in it, and it ends up becoming a part of them. I’ve always thought that you can tell a lot about a person by the jewellery they wear, each piece has a story to tell, a little sentiment behind it that can often be a magical conversation starter…

REALISATION PAR

It’s a nice feeling to set yourself little goals and accomplish them – no matter how small they are or how long it takes. I have been wearing this blouse none stop since it arrived in my post box, and it’s everything I could have hoped for and more. If you’ve followed me for a while, then you’ll know I have a thing for blouses – they just make me feel good. Combined with polka dots and made by a dream brand I’ve been lusting after for ages, I can’t see myself loving an outfit more than this one for a while! These photos were shot at around 7am in Paris before the city woke up – It was so peaceful to wander the little side streets, and I don’t think we could have wished for a better location for this dream blouse…

THE NEW FLORAL DRESS

To quote The Devil Wears Prada, “Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking” *insert eye roll emoji* – Meryl was right, and I have avoided most floral print items since my late teenage years. Stripes and polka dots always stuck, but florals seemed to be much more difficult to get right. Fast forward a few years and I’m wearing a floral midi dress and I’m absolutely in love with it…
