OOTN // Dinner Date







Fedora - Vintage // Mesh Tee - Handmade // Skort - NewLook // Boots - NewLook // Belt - Vintage Levis // Necklaces - Accessorize and gift

001 // Sup guys! This is what I wore to my friend's birthday meal tonight and I thought I would share it with you! Naturally, having a wardrobe full of clothes means I couldn't find anything to wear, so as any other normal person would, I decided to make this top last minute. I had had the black sports mesh fabric for a while and so I thought it was time to put it to good use! I wanted to make a big baggy tee out of it but I think all that black would wash me out and make me look a drowned. I feel like New Look has phases of having good stock and right now is definitely one of them. They've actually got a few good pieces in at the moment, especially these skorts and similar skirts. 

002 // Aren't you just loving the weather at the moment! As much as I love summer, I hate all the skimpy summer clothes and getting half naked just to survive in the heat! So this weather is the perfect combination - sunny enough to warm you up but cold enough to get away with wearing tights and trousers. Plus it provides amazing lighting for outfit photos ;) 

Make sure to let me know what you think of this ensemble in the comments and if you'd like to see a DIY on how to make these mesh tshirts!

An Interview with // Monica Barleycorn AKA helloomonica

Hey guys! Don't be too alarmed, I know it's not been long since the last post but I have something a bit different for you guys! I had the amazing opportunity of interviewing Monica Barleycorn of helloomonica.com and she is genuinely one of the loveliest people I have ever spoken to! Monica has been running her blog for the past 4 years and in that short time she has gained a huge following and recognition in a number of fashion magazines. She is definitely one of my all time favourite bloggers! If you haven't already checked out her blog, I definitely  recommend that you do, her style is gorgeous!

So without further ado...


Remember to go check out Monica's blog over at helloomonica.com and follow her on Twitter (@helloomonica) and Instagram (monicabarleycorn)

I hope you guys have enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed making it! Let me know what you think and I could make this type of post a regular thing xx

OOTD // It's Been A While...





Fedora - Vintage // White Tee - Monki // Jeans - Topshop // Checked Shirt - Vintage // Chelsea Boots - Office // Silver Necklaces - Vintage, Accessorize and Mum's // Belt - Vintage Levi's

001 // Hey guys! So it's been a while since my last outfit post but I promise there will be more from here on out. I'm loving the 'shirt tied around the waist' look at the moment and I think it is a great way to make an outfit that little bit more laid back and casual. If you have a weird figure like me and you want to accentuate your waist a little more, it's great for that too, if not, then around the hips looks great too! I've also been doing it with dresses and skirts to tone down the 'girly'ness. I'm also really into chunky, ethnic looking,  silver necklaces at the moment. They add a little bohemian and pretty much look great with anything.

002 // On another note, my GCSEs are in 5 weeks (eek!) so I won't be posting too much until after they are over, when I have my 10 week long summer!! Woop woop! And seeing as I have such a long summer, where I guarantee I will spend 90% of just lying in bed watching netflix, I have lots of exciting little projects planned and I can't wait to start them and share them with you guys! 

Mwah xx
