To Single Lady,
I am writing this late love letter to you because I was so busy yesterday, spending my Valentine’s Day in lovely restaurants and then I was whisked away to a castle to stay in overnight LOL JKE. I was too busy celebrating an early Easter, watching Pretty Woman in my own company with a crisp butty. Yep, Easter eggs and crisp butties. But that’s ok, right!? Yes, of course! Not everybody has a partner to celebrate the day of love and not everybody will have a lucky someone to whisk them away to a princess castle. Valentine’s Day can make us feel a bit down in the dumps for us single ladies and maybe have us questioning ‘Why am I single?’ ‘Why have I not met the one yet?’ and this is completely normal. This is my second year in row without a Valentine and this year I took it a lot better than I did last year. Last year, I was still moping around over an ex boyfriend who I thought was the ”ONE” but who obviously wasn’t the one because I would have been celebrating Valentine’s with him this year. But I’ve realised there is no point rushing into relationships and wasting time with people you don’t love just because you want to feel loved or wanted, this is a bad move. I repeat, this is a bad move. As cliché as this sounds, there is someone for everyone out there and you probably just haven’t met them yet. So gurrrrrrrrrrrrls pls try to keep up that girl power and appreciate your love for yourself at a time like this.
Ello! hope ye all good! Today i’m welcoming back the knit! because no matter how much a lot of us don’t like the cold, you would be lying if you said you don’t miss that cosy jumper stuck in the back of your wardrobe!
On the day of this shoot the weather was still pretty warm so I opted for a knit dress to stay on the cooler side. However, on chillier days I would pair it with some boots and a long mac coat. The dress is originally from Daisy Street but I actually found it in a charity shop.. new with tags.. for £2.99!! Bloody bargain eh!
Dress – Daisy Street | Choker – Ebay | Bag – The White Pepper | Shoes – New Look | Hat – Primark
I kept it simple and paired it with some white sneaks, tote bag and corduroy cap (which literally everything sticks to) for some sporty vibezzzzz. Then I threw in a suede choker so it didn’t lose it’s feminine touch.
A belle sleeve to a pointed toe
Hello! Well this is my first ever outfit blog post.. I know, scary! I have introduced myself on my ‘about/contact’ page in the drop down menu at the top of the page if you would like to get a little idea of why I have started this blog.
SO! Today it’s all about the seventies! The seventies is definitely my favourite era and who doesn’t like channelling their inner Stevie Nicks? The seventies trend was all over the catwalks and high streets for SS15 but now it’s that time of the year again where the days are short, the nights are long and you find yourself digging out that winter coat!
So todays outfit is 70’s inspired with a winter modern twist.
I do own a iron! I promise..
I have paired a black waist coat with a cream bell sleeve top, just look at those dreamy floaty sleeves! and for £5? I just couldn’t help myself.
I decided to stick with the original 70s theme and threw on some wide leg jeans that I found in the charity shop. I cut them myself to make them into a pair of cropped jeans and frayed the bottoms to give them a distressed look.
To top my look off I added my ultimate favourite leopard print pointed boots and a full length fur coat form Mexx. This coat is super snug and almost covers the whole of my little 5ft2 self ha!
COAT – MEXX
WAIST COAT – NEW LOOK
TOP – VINTAGE
JEANS – CHARITY SHOP
BOOTS – ZARA
I got my inspiration from Annie in the film ‘Annie Hall’ I absolutely adore her tomboyish slouchy 70’s style! I also definitely recommend the film, it’s full of dry humour, quirkiness and romance.
Throwing it back
I thought this picture was relevant to todays post so I wanted to share it with you, this is my family back in the 1970’s. My dad is on the first left and just look at how sassy those flares are! I actually asked him if he still had these pants so I could borrow them (unfortunately not haha) next to my Dad is my Nanna, Auntie (who weirdly just looks like me), My Auntie’s friend and my two Uncles. I would have loved to have lived this era! Only if we could time travel ey? Hope you enjoyed my first post as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you!
