These are all pictures from my instagram (click on the pic to enlarge) but it's just to basically show that I've still been around the past few months, just not blogging on this site, due to circumstances I won't discuss on here. I've contemplated deleting the blog entirely but I'm too proud of it. So what I'm proposing to do is not make any promises anymore about things I'm going to do, but to just take every day as it comes. I will blog when I can and when I want to, no pressure. From now on I want to blog because I want to blog, not because I feel like I need to.
A lot has changed about me as a person and my personal sense of style, I've grown up and know I want to change the direction of my blog slightly, which will happen in time. So stick around, see what happens.
HELLO READERS! Hope you all had a loooovely xmas & fab new years! Not gunna comment on how bad Ive been at blogging, once again! But this shits getting real now, I am determined to become a more frequent blogger in 2013. (it will happen one day)
Do ya like my new shoes? Real creepers guys! Now, I never did jump on the creepers band wagon when they came into fashion last year because I never thought I could pull them off. But here I am, January 2013 with a LEOPARD PRINT pair! Surprisingly, they fit in with a lot of things I have in my current wardrobe. I initially looked at them because of their sale price; from Office£40 down from £95 - how amazing! When I decided to try them on I was surprised further by how comfortable they were and how they didn't make my feet look twice their normal size. After about 10 minutes of deliberation I was sold. The print is actually like, real fur aswell. Yep, definitely won't be taking these off for a good few months.
It's starting to get ridiculously cold outside now and literally all I want to do is wear big jumpers and chunky scarves! Wearing my new Matalan boots here with some Topshop jeans. What do you guys think?
The jumper is from Primark and is so snuggly and warm. The wool is so soft which is something I didn't expect from Primark, at £10 though I am wondering how long it will last... Unfortunately the scarf I'm wearing here I have now lost! Literally devastated;( I got it in the New Look sale earlier this year and I adore the colours in it. Also I'm wearing lipstick, which is a very rare occurrence for me I must say! Not used to seeing myself with such a bright colour on my lips, but thought it was necessary due to the neutral colours I was wearing.
I bought these three pairs of shoes a couple of weeks ago from Matalan. The boots, that are very Isabel Marant style, will look so fab with skinny jeans. They were a steal at £20 and are so comfortable! I am a sucker for the slipper style shoe ever since I bought my first pair from Topshop about a year ago. I especially love Matalan slippers because my Topshop ones haven't lasted more than a few months until I have to replace them but the slippers from Matalan are so sturdy and have a little heel which give it a really sophisticated 'slipper look' which I love. The first pair I bought are black with studs all over and the second pair are covered in a gorgeous floral fabric with a gold heel which I can match with all my gold jewellery! The floral ones are £12 and the studded pair were £14 which is so much cheaper than Topshop ones!
In other news, I got the opportunity to visit River Island head offices with my university class on Friday. We got shown round by the assistant buyer for menswear accessories and a designer for menswear. It was the most amazing experience, to see what they do on a day to day basis and how much work goes into one season of collections. There were rails of clothes that filled up every inch of wall and mood boards scattered everywhere. We also got to see where they hold important range meetings and the mock shop where they set up collections to see how it would look when it's actually in store. It was such an inspirational trip and has motivated me so much to get through these 4 years at university!
Wearing one of my favourite shirts I've bought this season from Topshop. The collar tips and pattern of the shirt are so perfect and I feel this looks a lot more expensive than it actually was. The jacket is one of those military jackets with the leather sleeves which I feel will only be around for a short while but it was from the kids section therefore quite cheap! The boots, oh the boooots! Went down from £65 to £27 (including student discount) how amazing! I've been after some little winter boots but I don't usually find ones I like because I've got quite short legs therefore ankle boots tend to look odd on me. However these sit just below the ankle therefore I couldn't say no to them!
Been such a busy week! Have so many presentations coming up at Uni which I can't wait to get out the way! But I'm gunna try not let the work get in the way of blogging.
