outfits
So I've got a confession to make. I've never been to a proper festival. At almost 24 years old I've never seen the likes of V-fest, Glastonbury, or even Bestival. As someone who's such a free spirit and loves spending cosy nights in a tent you'd think I'd be an experienced festival veteran by now, but nope.
The one festival I have been to is Elmfest. Not heard of it? Of course you haven't. It's a teeny tiny homemade festival on a small campsite in the middle of Gloucestershire. Although it's small, it's fun and friendly and pretty local to us so that's perfect. It also allows dogs and campfires on site so we can take our angel George and keep cosy when the sun has gone down!

Now, just because Elmfest isn't a real festival doesn't mean I'm not going to dress up and treat it like one! I'm probably not going to get my first taste of a big festival for a few years yet unfortunatly so when I knew Emlfest was coming back around I took full advantage. I started planning outfits and buying face glitter! I actually invested in some biodegradable body glitter for the weekend, which I'm hoping to create some fun makeup looks with in the coming weeks.

Although a lot of my outfit plans changed due to the cold and then the extreme heat we had one day, this outfit I wore on the Saturday night stayed the same. It's not the most generic festival wear, after all I am in a random field with about 200 other people, I can't really go all out. Its not like a normal festival, it's less anonymous, if I did the whole glitter tits thing people would remember! So I went for a comfortable outfit with happy carefree vibes to it. I feel like this is something I would actually wear to a festival if I did get the chance. Maybe I would add more sparkles and a bit of funky headwear but the base of a good festival outfit is definitely there.

Hopefully one year I'll get to see one of the big UK festivals. I'll probably hate every second of being claustrophobically close to people and the horrible smelly toilets but I'm sure it will be an experience to remember. Until then I'll carry on enjoying my little local Elmfest with a roaring fire, a couple of cans of Dark Fruits and some of my fave people.

CUTE CASUAL & COMFORTABLE - THE PERFECT FESTIVAL OUTFIT

Do you have that one outfit that you know is pretty fucking basic but you love it and feel banging in it anyway? Well this is that outfit for me. The black jeans, leather jacket, converse, band tee combo is my go to look when I can't be arsed but I still want to look kind of put together, and I think it works. This is probably the universal basic bitch outfit but I literally don't care. 


I wasn't actually planning on taking any style photos the day I wore this outfit. I know it isn't anything special, but I felt great, the lighting was pretty decent and my surroundings were kind of cute too. These photos were actually taken on a day out to Lichfield with my mom who stepped up to be my photographer for the afternoon and considering these pics were taken on my phone by a woman who still isn't really sure how to use it, I don't think they are half bad! They were also never meant for my blog either, I only really wanted some photos for Instagram but I thought I might as well share them here too, thats why they are square!

I pretty much always plan my outfit shoots, I'm not really fun or spontaneous enough to take daily outfit snaps and I wear the same comfy clothes over and over again if I'm honest. I know this outfit and the photos aren't going to blow anyones mind but I kind of like how raw they are. This is an actual real outfit that I would wear day to day and although the quality isn't really up to my usual standard I might start taking outfit snaps like this more regularly. What do you guys think?



Also just a little side note, how fucking cute is my new silver backpack, please? I won it at a Brum Bloggers Accessorize event a couple of weeks ago and it is literally my new favourite bag. I'd been eyeing it up all night to be honest, so when I was given the choice of any non leather bag in the shop (yep I almost cried) I decided to take this little metallic beauty home with me. It's already been on quite a few day trips and bike rides so I know I'm going to get a lot of use out of it this summer!

Do you have a 'go to' basic bitch outfit?

BASIC BITCH OUTFIT


 - Shop The Look -
         


I'm not going to lie, I find dressing for autumn/ winter super hard. Unlike pretty much every other blogger out there, I'm a big fan of Summer. Nothing makes me happier than being able to walk around in minimal clothing and still be nice and toasty. But now it's getting cooler and that's just not possible anymore.

I'm not a massive fan of coats, but I like to be warm without wearing 100 layers. I find most jumpers to be big and bulky on me, and I definitely can't pull off the cute wooly hat look, so what do I wear? Well there's not much choice really. For the next couple of weeks I'll try and get away with autumnal shirts and blouses but after that I'll be rocking the frumpy jumper look until about May! 

What sort of things do you wear in the cooler months?

OOTD | AUTUMN STYLING


Shop The Look
         

So I am finally back with another outfit post! It feels like forever since I posted an OOTD which is a shame really because I really love dressing up and prancing around in front of the camera. I still find it super awkward to pose in public though, not going to lie.

I've actually used my new camera for these photos which is why the quality isn't as good as usual but if I'm honest I was out for the day and I just couldn't be bothered to lug my big DSLR around with me. I know the photographs will never be as good using this new little camera but my old lady back just can't handle the weight of my other camera anymore. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I will try my best to create them more often!

OOTD | BELL SLEEVES AND BOOTS

So I managed to drag Sean out of the house on a very cold Sunday afternoon to take some outfit pics for me. I'm not going to lie, it was literally freezing when we snapped these photos; you can even just about see the ice forming on the canal. Regardless of the cold I'm so glad we got out to enjoy the sun, I know we won't be seeing a lot of it over the next few months!


So this is the outfit I actually wore to The Clothes Show last Saturday. As always I was driving myself mad trying to think about what I was going to wear. I wanted to be comfy but at the same time it's The Clothes Show, you have to dress half decent, especially as this year I was given a press pass. Believe me I almost cried when I got the email!

I settled on my new favourite coat from Dorothy Perkins, £60 down to £27 in the sale. I paired that with a slightly oversized pink turtleneck from H&M and my very well loved black Asos jeggings. I also chose to wear the most beautiful pair of boots you have ever seen in your life. They may be pretty but honestly after a few hours of trotting around the NEC they almost destroyed my feet. Turns out I'd managed to leave some of the packaging inside (don't ask) which rubbed my little toes until they were sore.


To top the whole thing off I chose my fave statement necklace from Primark and my new Vivienne Westwood bracelet. Before buying it I was a little apprehensive about forking out that much for one piece of jewellery, I mean it's not even silver, but truth be told I've already gotten that much wear out of it I'm considering going back for the matching earrings. I'll try and link everything or a similar alternative down below.

I absolutely loved shooting these so I hope you guys enjoyed looking at them.  I say this at the end of pretty much anything I create now but I'm really hoping to do more of this and I'd love to hear some feedback/ constructive criticism!

Did any of you manage to get down to The Clothes Show last week?

OOTD | IN THE WINTER SUN

I know it's been forever since I did an outfit post, but honestly they are so much effort! Well I finally got around to taking some with help from Sean and even though I'm not really loving them, I thought I might as well post it anyway.

Do you guys love my really jazzy arm splint by the way? I was 5 weeks into having a broken hand when these photos were taken and it was driving me mad. I could barley do anything for myself and I hadn't been able to do my makeup properly either which was super sad because I bought the Naked 3 Palette just before my accident - review coming soooooon!


Shop The Look


So let's give you a little run down of this outfit. I'm really loving wearing dark colours lately, its just so much easier to style black clothes! On my top I'm wearing this gorgeous over sized blouse top from Monki. It's been my go to 'nice top' for weeks now and I don't think I will get tired of it any time soon.

I've paired that up with a pair of basic black Asos jeggings and some pretty little ghillie flats from Primark. I've been after some shoes like this for ages and when I saw these little beauties for just £8 I had to have them. I'm also wearing a black tattoo choker and some sunnies from River Island but you can't really see those here.

Sunday was such a gorgeous day, it was really sunny and fairly warm too. Me and Sean decided to go for a walk around one of our local lakes as the weather was so nice! We used to walk a lot last summer, especially along the canals near my house but we haven't really been since Autumn as its just been so cold. 

So this is what I wore for our little adventure. I've been trying (and usually failing) to style these black New Balance trainers up for months now but I finally think I've found something that works. They are super comfy and they weren't the cheapest either so I really want to start getting more use out of them.

The rest of my outfit was pretty basic. I picked this green top up a few weeks back from H&M, it was only £8 and I knew I could style it up with lots so got 2 more in black and burnt orange! The silver messenger bag is one of my absolute favourites and I'm sure its made an appearance on my blog before. Although I can't find the exact colour on the website anymore I have linked a slightly shimmery black shade for you guys. 

I'd really like to get your opinions on the trainer situation. Do they work with this outfit? What else would you wear them with?

Jumper from Wallis (Similar Here) | Black Jeans from Matalan (Here) | Silver Necklace from Primark (Similar Here) | Black Flats from Primark (Similar Here)

So I finally got around to taking some more outfit photos. I seem to be wearing a lot of black lately. Maybe its because I'm channeling my inner 14 year old or maybe its because I find it easier to do one black wash a week. I think we all know its the second reason but either way I'm really into this look. 

I picked up this burglar jumper last week from Wallis, its not usually somewhere I would shop but where I live theres a store that stocks, Wallis, Topshop, Dorothy Perkins and Miss Selfridge all in under one roof. It was a little sale buy and even though I definitely look like I'm about to break into someones house and steal their TV its super comfy so I'm going to wear it lots.

Are you loving the Burglar Chic look?

Ah my first outfit post of 2016! So I wouldn't say this outfit is particularly inspiring but its a cute little combo I wore for NYE and a couple of other occasions. I feel like I'm wearing my school uniform again in this outfit but its really girly too so I like it.

I'm not usually very dressy and lately I don't really have the money to be buying party dress's so I've been trying to get into the habit of buying clothes I can mix with things already in my wardrobe. I think this skirt is the perfect example of a really versatile piece that can be mixed up, dressed up or worn casually. 

The shoes are from Asos last year and the shirt is one of my all time faves from Mango. It cost me about £18 around 2 years ago and I've gotten so much wear out of it! The coat is another older piece I picked up from BHS last year and although I only wore it to keep me warm I think it goes really well with the overall outfit. Andddd lets ignore my roots.
