Outfit | Freedom!!

 So the time has finally come - I've finished school! It was a long time coming, but feels so weird now it's here. It's been a long time since I've posted but I've had to put the blogging ting aside while a levels toke over my life. But luckily I've been taking a few pics on the sly, so expect many more flowery shirt/trouser combinations to come!

Who Knew? | The New 'Made in Chelsea' Girls are Actually Quite Cool (and have real life jobs)

My huge talent for procrastination somehow landed me looking up the MIC newbies. And to my surprise they're rather cool, and all seen to work at Tatler! I love all these candid shots by Phoebe Lettice (is that her real name?), I wish the show was way more honest and candid like this.

Life | Recent Photos

 Aside from tackling a mountain of revision, I've tried to make time for a few fun things these past few weeks. Including:
Looking at free art at the tate modern
Taking numerous photos of my lovely little cat
Decorating gingerbread men (modern art?)
Buying my dress for prom
I just want to wear my dress for prom all day everyday, though sadly I still have to wait a couple of monthes. Can exams please just be over?

Outfit | Spring #1

This outfit feels very 'fashun', but after glimpses of sun and seeing these zara shoes I couldn't help but start thinging up dream outfits for spring. After seeing the bag all over blogs/youtube videos/twitter/any other media I didn't think I wanted it. But recently it's use has been plaguing my mind, it'd be perfect for summer travelling and going out - 18th present for myself maybe?

Outfit | Monkeying Around/Jungle Fever

I know I said I was trying a spending ban, but that didn't work out. I saw this awesome kenzo-esque top while wandering round H&M and couldn't resist! The print is so cool and the fabric is so great.

Competition | Passion for Fashion

When I saw Olivia's amazing competition, I thought 'a chance to win something by screen shopping and dreaming up outfits? Hells to the yes!'.  I thought I'd go with things I'd wear myself, and include clothes that are on my current 'wishlist'.

 Hat £28 Bikini Top/Bottoms £25 Skirt £48 Sandals £48 Nail Varnish £3.45 Sunglasses £16 Top £6 = £174.45
I think this outfit is strangely the most put-together look out of the three. I believe that when you go to the beach you should never look any less cooler than normal, so I went with quite a glamorous look with the heeled sandals and full skirt. The sunglasses and hat are mainly there for practicality - a girl can't get burnt while looking glam! The sunglasses are really cool, as they've got a slightly modern twist on the cat eye trend. I find high waisted bikinis look so much nicer than normal ones, and just love this simple black one. The bra can be worn under the top - as it's slightly sheer, and the bottoms can be worn under the skirt without looking odd, because of the skirt's high waisted fit.  
Top £15 Dungarees £42 Bag £55 Shoes £45 Nail Varnish £3.99 Eye Liner £3.99 Sunglasses £12 = £173.98
For this outfit, I went for the 'cool girl, summer in london' kinda thing. I wanted to keep everything simple, with a muted colour palette. But then change things up a little with a dungaree dress instead of shorts, and supergas instead of converse. I love/really want this bag, as I imagine it being one of those bags you can chuck the kitchen sink into and go without any faff. 
Blazer £75 Trousers £50 Clutch £10.70 Top £6 Shoes £39.99 Bracelet £4 Lipstick £5.49 = £191.18
To be honest, I'm not really into wearing dresses for going out/parties, although I love getting dressed up. I think the suit is really cool and elegant, then kept things simple with the white top again. As most of this outfit is quite subtle, I put in these awesome SILVER shoes which aren't too high so comfy enough to wear through the night. I then added the see-through clutch because I really like the idea of it, and lets be honest if you can't wear a transparent clutch to a night out when can you where one?
I hope you guys enjoyed my outfits as much as I had making them!

Outfit | Spots and Neon

A (very poor) attempt at an outfit post. I've never been that good at these, infact I'm not sure if I've ever taken a real 'outfit photo'. In an effort to create more outfits and less thought into getting ready in a hurry, I'm trying to document my favourite day-to-day outfits. After way too many shopping trips recently, and looking at uni fees/accomidation/student banking I've decided to go on a spending ban for march - call it giving up spending for lent... ish! I really want to make an effort into buying more basic items which are better quality, instead of making impulse purchases which i'll regret later. I'll let you know how it goes!
