Subconscious outfit choices


Stripe tee - Boohoo
Distressed shirt - Boohoo
Levi 501's - Blue Rinse
CDG Converse - DSM

Working in an environment that has a very limited colour palette means the very small rebellious side of me, wants to start throwing on all sorts of colour and pattern combinations in an attempt to bring some personality and individuality to my clothing choices. Sounds weird when I say it out loud, or in this case type it out.

I guess I've never limited myself when it comes to clothing or accessories before and just went with what I liked. Growing up you shift through different styles depending on age, environment, relationships, trends and so on, but I think there's always some pattern in our subconscious decisions.  I know I've definitely been influenced by all of these things at some point in my life and I probably will be in the future. Which I think comes with learning who you are and what your 'style' is. Or on the flip side, I could be talking utter bollocks because this is the mind of a fashion student writing down a thought she's had recently.

Now I know this isn't exactly the most outrageous outfit I could have worn to enhance my thought process but it's here nonetheless. The colours in this are bold but still understated and therefore something I could wear to work. My choices in clothing are subject to whether I can wear them for my own enjoyment, as well as feeling confident wearing them to work too. This is something I'm getting slightly bored of, hence my rebellion (I'll use this term lightly). One of my most recent purchases is a faded red / orange denim mini skirt, that to be quite honest, I really don't think would be suitable for my place of work, which in a way makes me love it more.

It's made me realise how important clothing is to me which in turn sounds really materialistic and almost narcissistic but I don't think it's that at all. Each morning I can wake up and decide who I want to be that day. It gives me the confidence I otherwise lack (a post to come on that soon) to feel cool and sassy for the day... before I get back into my fluffy polka dot pyjamas and pink dressing gown.

4 days in Berlin


If you follow me on instagram then you'll know that 2 weeks ago I went to Berlin with my family. It was a present from my wonderful parents as my sister turned 18 and I turned 21, so quite big and significant birthdays!
I love seeing blog posts on places people have visited as it gives me so much inspiration but I'm so awful at writing about places / my travels so I thought I would just collate a load of images I took on my 35mm film camera and share it that way. It was my first time using the camera so I'm still learning and getting to grips with it (even if it is just a point and shoot) but it's something I want to work on and get better at! 

I also shared a fair few photos on instagram so check those out too if you haven't already (shameless self promo).

Also I apologise now if you can't read my writing, my best friend can't so you wouldn't be the first!

If you want anymore information then give me an email (address is to the right) or send me a message on instagram or twitter!

Spots and Stripes


Here I am with a quick post featuring the most amazing dungarees that I bought way back in January and have only just got round to posting.
Dungarees : Beyond Retro
Jumper : New Look
CDG Converse : Dover Street Market

I've always had a full 'head over heels' love for dungarees but have never found the right ones; they're either too big, too small, not the right wash and so on and so forth (I'm a very fussy shopper believe it or not). After heading to Beyond Retro which conveniently is only down the road from my flat, I found these beauties. To say I stood in the changing rooms really debating whether I should actually buy them sounds really stupid as I can't wait to wear them all the time once the weather warms up.
Of course I'm gonna have to give a special shoutout to these CDG x Converse. I bought these the day they were released as an early birthday present to myself so they're totally justified. Plus they're converse so they already go with everything in my wardrobe, ever.

I'm totally feeling the whole spots and stripes together. The start of a pattern clash love affair?
