Denim, dressing comfortably and dungarees are 100% part of my daily routine. If it ain’t comfy I’m not wearing it and when dungarees came back in a few years ago I was straight on that trend. Plus, they keep your tummy extra warm in the winter cos extra layer. Yep, I am 25 going on 85, whatcha gonna do?
These personal posts are one of my favourite things to read so I decided to do a bit of my own. Let me know what you think and if there’s anything else you want to know!? I loved reading Robyn’s 6 Kinda Weird Confessions of An Introvert (which funnily enough has pics from the same day as this photo shoot if you’re thinking the backdrop looks *kinda* similar!) because it’s just super interesting to find out more about bloggers behind the blog, don’tcha think? I’m not saying I’m the weirdest or quirkiest person out there by any stretch of the imagination but I just think it’s nice when people find something that they’re like “Yes! I do that too!”.
Green is literally everywhere at the moment! It seems to have crept up on us all like the red trend did and I’m loving it. I picked up this super cute floral blouse from Missguided that I showed off on Instagram the other week and I’m really embracing adding some more colour to my wardrobe. I’ve chosen 6 awesome pieces from ASOS that can fit in easily with your style. Just add a touch with accessories or go all out with a dress, just pick your shade!
This ASOS oversized oatmeal jumper has taken over my life, I’m not gonna lie to you. It’s the warmest, softest, cosiest thing ever and it’s just making getting ready so easy. It goes with every colour of denim, every jacket I own and pretty much all of my shoes so we’re getting on like a house on fire.
What’s the difference between your weekday and weekend style? Do you have to wear a uniform or a suit or are you super casual all the time?
Workwear style for me is fairly similar to my day to day style but I do try to wear trousers, boots, shirts and other ‘smarter’ items during the week. Weekends can often mean sweatshirts, leggings and general gym kit and my favourite Vans t-shirts. But, sometimes when I’ve got a little something something going on (usually brunch or lunch let’s not lie) it can be nice to make some more effort on the weekend with style.
Denim is one of those things that I think people have comfort blankets with, it definitely is for me. I’m 80% a skinny jeans girl these days and have been for a long time now. Pre-skinny jeans days it was all about the boot cut for the school disco, right? And before the boot cut days it was all about the skater fit jeans – remember those Tammy Girl dreamboats? Amazing. The more ripped, the baggier, the grubbier, the better. Those were the days. My jeans evolution has grown with me as I’m sure it has for most people my age and denim will always be my number one go-to for the start of an outfit.
For a lot of us looking good is important and it can really affect your day to day confidence. When you’re comfortable with what you are wearing your confidence shines through, that’s what I think! We take care to choose outfits we love all the time, right? But, one thing many of us forget to do is to buy the right underwear to go with the sassy outfits that we buy! How many makeover shows have you seen where they kick off with the right knickers first and it’s like magic, everything looks awesome? It’s so true how we need to start with great foundations.
Comfort zones are the one thing that a lot of people try to avoid. Do something everyday that scares you, get out of your comfort zone, blah. We hear it everyday don’t we? Well obviously doing this is amazing and it’s good for you but there’s something to be said about having a comfort zone.
Sweater weather is here! Hell to the yes, I literally love jumpers, cardigans, knitwear, however many times you want to say it – I just wanna be cosy af all the time. Here are 9 pieces fresh from three of my fave high street brands to shop from that I am loving for the new season.
ASOS is bringing the big guns this year when it comes to knitwear and they have nailed it with this oversized crew neck cream jumper. It is pure Pinterest perfection and is 100% going straight in my basket when a little discount rolls my way. Two super bright beauties that I’m loving have to be the fluffy lilac jumper with wide sleeves – (how amazing is this colour?) and the PrettyLittleThing three tiered baby blue jumper. Who said AW had to be all boring and dark? Not ASOS!
Going out ‘out’ is a funny thing! It’s a bit of a mine field for casual gals like me and it kind of sets me into panic mode. I don’t like to really show much skin apart from my legs but then I stress out about being cold. Does anyone else do this? I then stress about being over or under dressed! When our summer social rolled around for work I was instantly stuck for what to wear but I had to think quick. This was my situ! Let me know your go-to going out style in the comments, maybe you’ll inspire me!
