If you want loads of people to stare at you, my advice is to wear thigh high colourful boots and a tiny dress. This has been tried and tested by me on many a night out but my research has revealed that it works even better in the day, especially when the weather is getting colder. The good thing is that thigh high boots will keep your pins nice and cosy throughout Winter which is why I'm stocking up on some show stoppers. I have a special place in my heart for thigh high boots and these bold, floral ones have not escaped my capture. Added to a monochrome outfit they become a statement piece, injecting a splash of colour. I'm planning on wearing them with black jeans for a more casual look in the future but for now I've paired them with a white oversized top and an under-bust corset.
Okay, so I don't skate and these aren't skating shoes but I've been wanting to take photos at this mini skate park by my house for a while now. I managed to time it perfectly so that no intimidating kids were around (I swear that some 11 year olds carry knives nowadays) so the only thing I had to avoid was the graffiti about goons... For this post I wanted to mainly focus on the shoes because they are pretty darn cool. They're the new Nike Air VaporMax in Blush and you literally feel like you're walking on bubbles when you wear them. They come in a couple of colours but this Blush colour caught my eye, I like that they're not a bright pink and a bit more subtle.
Josh and I recently visited Hackney Wick for a photoshoot (which I will be showing you all very soon). We had bit of time to spare so we went and had a look at the graffiti, the place is so colourful! The weather was very temperamental (hence the sunglasses and umbrella combo) but I didn't want to miss the chance to take outfit photos next to some of the art. I felt like a character out of Clueless wearing this, my favourite parts of the outfit are the corduroy jacket and my Minnie Mouse shoes! I'll have to post a photo of them on my Instagram because they're a bit difficult to see on these pictures. I really enjoy how soft the outfit looks if that makes sense? I think it may be the combination of different yellows.
Out of the graffiti in these pictures my favourites are the men with their arms up (because it makes me laugh) and the horse and the man! Which is your favourite?
Warning: This blog post contains a rare photo of me naturally smiling with my teeth on show, read on with caution.
Today's outfit is more fitting than I planned as I completely forgot Tour De France was going on at the minute! I must have been subconsciously influenced by it to wear this unitard, although you won't be catching me riding a bike any time soon...
I actually had quite a lot of fun with this outfit, I don't tend to wear unitards because I'm a tad bit short and I felt that they always made me look stumpy. But the fit was actually really great (I've found that with everything I've got from Pretty Little Thing in all honesty). I think that the waist cincher breaks the outfit up and also makes it a bit more daring, along with the choker too. I am really loving Deandri and their products because they're all vegan, including the massive chunky heels! It means I can wear my beloved ring chokers, harnesses and belts without worrying. Also, peek the tiny bows on the back of my socks - how cute are they?!
Not so long ago my dad moved to Devon and, even though I miss him loads, it means that I get to go to the beach whenever I visit!! I recently went down to Devon to see him and we spent most of the time taking in the views and eating tasty food. This is one of the outfits I wore when I was there because it was so easy to throw on quickly. The crop top and the ripped jeans were essential as it was insanely sunny and hot. I even got a little bit burnt, despite the 3 layers of factor 50 sun cream I was wearing! I got my jeans the other week because I realised that all of my comfy jeans are blue and I needed some variety! I wear them all the time now and have received so many compliments. I got the top from P&Co but they don't have it on their website anymore! They do have some really cool new stuff though which I already have my eye on...
Since I was younger I have always found time telling difficult to get my head around. You'll often find me counting out loud to work out what time it is specifically. But, that doesn't mean you can't wear a watch just because it looks good, which is pretty much what I've been doing with my new Daniel Wellington Classic Petite watch.
I know that, nowadays, most people will use their mobile phone to check the time but include a watch to their ensemble because it pulls the outfit together. Watches have become a fashion accessory and will often be worn instead of a bracelet or even to accompany some. What I like about my DW watch the most is the strap. It's made of metal mesh and is a great alternative to leather! Because it's mesh it actually appears a bit sparkly in the sun and the watch face is nice and simple showing the classic Daniel Wellington symbol.
There are other colours to suit whatever outfit or style that you have. I picked silver because I mainly buy silver jewellery and it means I can pair it with a hand full of rings. On this occasion I paired it with a very summery outfit as the sun has been making an appearance in the UK quite frequently recently. I wanted to keep my jewellery clean, simple and stylish and the Classic Petite matched that criteria perfectly.

This outfit is the result of two of my obsessions at the moment. One is searching through Asos sales and buying stuff I've had my eye on for months for half price, and the other is Valfré who somehow always get it right with their clothes. It was actually last year that I spotted the skirt and the shoes on Asos and wished they were a part of my wardrobe, but the frugal side of me told me not to spend a penny on them. Come January, I spotted them both in the sale and of course, seeing that they were pretty much more than half price, that same frugal side of me allowed a lil treat. I'm going to put everyone's mind at ease and assure you all that I definitely twirled around my bedroom in this skirt when I first tried it on... and the second time... and also the third. It fuelled the idea that being a ballerina is my next career option, only for that idea to be shattered when I realised that my leg is definitely not reaching that high. The shoes were actually not to my taste when I first saw them on the site, but after many hours a day scrolling (and I mean literal hours) they started to grow on me. When I saw that they were in the sale for £20.50 they went straight into my bag and onto my feet (a couple of days later when they arrived at my house of course). The last piece of my outfit which is the newest part of my wardrobe is my Valfré sweater. This has replaced my other comfy jumper, not only because this one is comfier and cooler, but because it references cats which my other comfy jumper did not do - very important. I tend to find it really difficult to find nice outfits in winter because I hate layering so this jumper has made it so much easier to keep warm but still look great.
