Casuals don't have to be boring. There's nothing I love wearing more than a T shirt, jeans, Vans and a blazer to smarten it up slightly. I wear my Vans to death, they're so comfy and go with so many things, whether it's a dress or jeans. They have to be my most worn item in my wardrobe (along with the Gucci of course) and I think everyone needs a pair of Old Skools in their life.
Pursuing a passion is something that, maybe 5 or 6 years ago, I would have probably talked myself out of. I was never the outgoing type. I never really saw myself doing much or going anywhere. Where was there to go really when you're stuck in a small Welsh town that you're not brave enough to escape. I'd always been interested in the more creative side of life, whether it be drawing, or make up, or fashion. I'd doodle and keep scrapbooks and essentially keep myself to myself. When I started my blog I never really shared it with anyone I actually knew. I didn't think they would take me seriously, or even be remotely interested what I was doing (or attempting to do).
Sometimes all you need for an outfit is a simple yet well made shirt. Something like this can be worn with literally anything. Skirts, shorts, jeans, in summer, in winter. It's SO versatile and classic. I'd been looking for a shirt like for so long and couldn't find one that was long enough in the body for me. Being tall I need something that little bit longer, everything else I tried just fitted awkwardly.
Mother’s Day is fast approaching and I for one always struggle with choosing a Mother’s Day gift. When you have a mother who has everything (including great taste), any old thing won't do. Gone are the years when a handmade pasta necklace or DIY piece of 'art' will suffice. Sure, they may have been cute when you were younger but let’s be honest, they're probably long gone by now. I mean, I made my mum a wooden stool once. And whilst that sounds pretty impressive for a child of around 10 or so (there was lots of adult supervision involved) it was probably a little underwhelming. And at the grand old age of 24 I now feel like it’s my turn now to spoil my mum properly, because it's about time we started treating our mothers after all their years of treating us.
This shoot couldn't have been more typical. Yesterday I was wandering around Camden, wearing jeans, a cardigan, socks and boots and it was glorious. I was sweating my ass off in my knitwear and it felt like, dare I say it, Summer. Today, I put on a summery dress and it starts chucking it down. But I've been dying to show you guys this dress for ages so come rain or shine I was going to blog this.
Is it time to apologise for the Dionysus overuse yet? Until I get my next bag fix, no. Sorry. I mean, it just goes with everything doesn't it? And if I am being really 'bloggery', think about the cost per wear and all that Jazz... But it just goes perfectly with this beautiful faux fur coat that I got recently and I just can't put it down at the moment.
