001 //  I noticed that I haven't done a 'Must Haves' post for a little while so I thought I would make a hat edition! I have been loving wearing hats recently, anything from beanies to bowlers and I thought it would be a good idea to share with you some of the different types of hats that have caughts my eye and that I wish I could add to my collection. Beanies will always be my favourite kind of hat, perfect for covering up those 2 day roots and a great way to tone down any outfit. I have also been wearing my fedora a lot recently and I think they are a really simple way to make an outfit instantly look more refined and mature. Britain has always been a fan of urban street style and more and more styles of caps have come back into fashion over the past year. Yes, there was the dreaded snapback, but hopefully that phase is over...
I am yet to purchase my first floppy hat but that is definitely first on my list for summer! Use them to add sophisticated girliness to your attire or just use as a practical sun shade, either way, you will look effortlessly cool and chic. I particularly love the pinky version by H&M.

Let me know in the comments which hat style you prefer and tell me what you'd like to see in the next 'Must Haves' post!

Wishlist Number 6

(All items are linked below)

001 // Getting back into the swing of things I thought I would post a little wishlist I made for you guys, just made up of a few things I have really been loving recently. I have been obsessed with ripped jeans at the moment and have not stopped wearing my old River Island ones that have gradually become more and more ripped the more I wear them, but I mean, how many pairs of ripped jeans is too many? Definitely not two.
I don't normally like gilets, but this black faux fur one definitely caught my eye, its the perfect balance between quirky and classy.
When I bought my first backpack I thought it would be a phase, but about 8 backpacks later, I don't think it will be passing anytime soon and what better way to satisfy my cravings than with this gorgeous black leather number from Zara?
I don't advertise my Polyvore account that much so give me a follow here and I will definitely follow back!

Let me know in the comments which pieces are your favourites and whether you can recommend any cheaper alternatives?
Love ya x

Monthly Favourites // January

Felt Fedora // Vintage £8

 Iridescent Phone Case // Topshop £8

 Control by Janet Jackson // Vintage £2

001 // Hello my lovelies! Seeing as I am obviously terrible at keeping promises when it comes to posting I have come up with a way to guarantee you will get at least a monthly post! So here are my January favourites! These are things that I have been loving and using to no end over the past month and I would definitely recommend each and every one to you. I have linked the ones that I could so if you see anything you like, get clicking!

I bought my fedora at a vintage stall in London in December for just £10 and I love the way it goes with almost anything and can cover up a bad hair day at the same time, what else does a girl need? 
The instant camera was a christmas present, and a much loved one at that, its so much fun not knowing how your photo will turn out and the different setting on it create different effects depending on the lighting, trés chic.

Two books that I have been loving are Lolita and It which really inspire me creatively and which I think everyone should have read! If you haven't, get yourself a copy of each and get reading! 
If you're like me then you have a disease known as 'butterfingers' which means that I will pretty much drop my phone at least twice a day so it was essential that I got myself a phone case. I found this one on the topshop website for £8 and I love the shiny iridescent colours and snakeskin texture and I have had endless compliments! 

I have a keen eye for spotting golden vinyls when I am out amd about so I found this Janet Jackson one in a small vintage auction room and have had it on repeat since then.
Last but not least are my Vans. They were a christmas present from my brother and I can honestly say I haven't worn any other shoes since then (as you can probably tell). I love how they make a dress less girly and they are so comfy too! A definite must for a hardcore shopper like me. 

002 // I know you will have heard this a hundred times before but I really am swamped at the moment with my GCSEs being just months away but I will try my best! Once it is the summer and I start sixth form you shall be inundated with posts and ottds! Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my new monthly section and I will see you again very soon x
