Layering up









Please mind the wind in my OOTD as I try and attempt to look okay while sudden flurries of wind come at me. It's quite difficult to take outfit photographs in the months of October to about April, the weather is so unpredictable. Just as I had a few shots to take it started to pour down, so I was grateful that I could at least manage some photographs. 

I'm the kind of person that tries to avoid catching a cold, I literally run if I know someone is about to sneeze. Thankfully I don't really get them, I guess it's because I drive now and I run away from anyone carrying the germs..
On that note, wrapping up is totally okay to do, I mean it is October after all; apart from my knee's, I love ripped jeans. Since buying a blue pair back in the summer I have found a new love.

Bold and Bright OOTD








Tie Dye Top Forever 21 - Similar Here

Striped Cardigan - Similar Here

Black Ripped Jeans New Look - Here

Canvas pumps H&M - Similar Here

I love to brighten up my day with bold statement pieces from my wardrobe. Starting off with these H&M pumps that I purchased in the summer, they're so colourful and I adore the floral print. To tone down the look (so I don't look like a silly summer craving lunatic) I paired with my super soft and super cute black ripped jeans. I can't get out of these lately, they're just... perfect.

A day in the park






I want to share something on my blog that I have passion for, other than fashion of course. I have always considered myself to be expressive and with that comes creativity. I believe that every person is creative, and we choose how to show it within our lives. I guess this is why music, art, film and fashion are so appealing; it's the ultimate expressive way to be. 
Photography has always inspired me and with today's access to websites like Pinterest and Instagram, the entire world has fallen in love with pictures too! 

Back in my college days, part of my BTEC Art & Design course I had to study photography. Cool right? But this wasn't just taking random pictures on a cool Canon or Nikon. We had to use film and then process that film later on. It was pretty awesome and some of my fondest memories in college were in that lesson every week. 
After my BTEC I didn't even consider photography, I am quite shy and I tend to shy away from things I'm unsure of. So, I decided to do Graphic Design at University. Along with Uni there's a big loan and I bought myself a Canon, I knew it would be an investment; and 3 years on I still use it. It has come in handy particularly in blogging. 

I went on holiday to Crete in September and it opened my eyes massively. It made me want to see more of the world that we live in, to catch every minute of nature and history. I really want to travel to more places and see different views and aspects of life. On that note I intend to experiment with my camera and capture the life around us - even the most simple things that I want to show you in the post today :)

I love autumn leaves, although they're overly used, they're pretty to see and the colours they project is stunning. Also stepping them is fun to hear the crunch...

Fall in the woods






What I wore: Forever 21 playsuit

How quick has October come swinging back around?! I'm definitely feeling chilly mornings and dark evenings now, oh how I dislike this season so much. Me and my friend decided to go around a massive park - imagine twilight but british.. it is beautiful.  I love parks, they're calm and always full of dogs; my absolute favorite animal. 
I wore this playsuit earlier last month for my holiday on Crete, it seems such a long time ago now. I think this playsuit works well in autumn, with the rich purples contrasting with the woodland surrounding giving off that autumn kind of feeling. 
Watch out for my next blog post as I will be posting up creative photographs from my day in the park :)

Love & Print








What I wore: Primark flats, Forever 21 tee, H&M floral shorts, River Island cardigan

Like individuals I feel like shops / retailers have their own style. This might sound mad, but I really do think so. For example, h&m is perfect for casual, basic yet sophisticated clothing. They never over-do it; they're a vision of clarity. 
Also for Forever 21, I think they have a kind of californian boho style going on. I guess this is why I am soo drawn into their collections; they always remind me of a sunny beach day trip, with no care in the world. 
These two retailers are the reason why I buy soo much from them, they don't change their ethos and identity. They know exactly who they are and what they visualise.  
As for Primark; I adore their shoes, they're always on trend and at such an amazing price you really cannot complain.

Mixing Prints







I love wearing new clothes, but what happens when you no longer have new stuff to wear? You just have to do with what you've got. That's how I usually roll any-who. Today is a mixture of winter and summer recycling. I adore these bright blue floral shorts, I love how bold and colourful they can make an outfit. To tear away from summer I decided to team my shorts with a black shirt also from H&M and a monochrome blazer from New Look. 
To add a little bit of extra personality I wore my necklace that I got from this Burleque and vintage fair in Birmingham. The blue eye really pops out at you as it surrounds the dark blacks and greys. 
As winter is glooming down I need to invest in some really nice tights and I most definitely need a new coat :)

Bobble Hat & Tartan Scarf






What I wore; New Look Jeans, Zara Jumper, H&M bobble hat

I have a bad cold coming along, which means it is officially winter for me. I hate having a cold, it's miserable and just down right annoying. But, on the bright side I'm tackling it at the right time. I want to wear more layers now, it's definitely time to get cosy in jumpers & scarfs with a nice hot chocolate and marshmallows. I love my tartan print scarf, I received as a gift from my boyfriends mom and at first it wasn't really my style, but I grew to adore it. As for my bobble hat, I get this old thing out every years, it's chunky and cosy! x
