LISTENING TO: SONIC YOUTH - DIRTY BOOTS ♫
Top - Primark (mens), jeans - Riverisland, trainers - Nike, bag - Topshop, sunglasses - Matalan, watch - Topshop.
Let's take a trip back to the 90's where MTV was at it's finest and programs such a Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant weren't even a thought. Given, Beavis & Butthead was already a thing when I was old enough to watch it but when I did feast my eyes on it's brilliance it became one of my most memorable 'cartoons' to date. Two rock obsessed dumbasses sat on their couch judging music videos and life for ten minutes is totally fine by me, as I'm a sucker for sticking on the top 40 music channel and scaring my eyes with some of the worst videos I have ever seen. Their are a few that are brilliant, but most of the time it's half naked women twerking to dance tunes, not something I want to be watching or even hearing.
I've got to give it to Primark, their selection of graphic tee's which send me into a distant memory of my teenage years is really quite something. Although their Hogwarts t-shirts are a little over done as I feel like I've been seeing them everywhere I go. But some of them are pretty cool, this one included. My t-shirt collection is full to the brim of film, music and tv designs such as the 80's/90's Game Of Thrones graphics by the amazingly talented Mike Wrobel, a five year old Sonic Youth shirt which I bought in the biggest size they had and then cut the arms out, so it now shows a ridiculous amount of side boob and of course, a Django shirt with Jamie Foxx' face on. I'm never stuck for a shirt to wear.
More 90's goodness is the faded out denim 'boyfriend' jeans, which are the most un-flattering, bum flattening pant ever made. But if you look behind the fact your bum looses all of it's shape, they're the comfiest jean ever and look so great in the summer.

LISTENING TOO: ONE NIGHT ONLY - PLASTICINE ♫
Top - Newlook, leather jacket - Primark, duster jacket - Urban Outfitters, jeans - Primark, trainers - Nike, sunglasses - Topman, cross necklace - Topman, rings - Bloody Mary Metal
A casual day out getting some lunch calls for an excuse to wear my new trainers. On Instagram I posted a picture of two big red Nike shoe boxes and one of them contained this pair I recently got from one of the outlet stores for nearly 70% off and was very happy with myself about finding such a gem! I've been eyeing up all black trainers for some time now and these ones fit the bill pretty perfectly. Nike always come up trumps with their trainers, weather you're looking for a seriously snazzy pair that stick out like a sore thumb a-la Kanye West, or if you're into the more minimalist sort then they definitely cater for you too. I always think it's worth checking eBay if you want a more rare pair or if you don't have a Nike store near you, as they can have some really unique ones at a decent price - if the seller isn't too stupid - and it's better then heading to your local Office or Schuh where it's all the same sort of thing.
These ones are perfectly suited for me, they're simple, easy to style and look that little bit retro. When I bought them the shop assistant gave them to me in a different shoe box to it's original so I'm not completely sure on the model of them, but I'm almost certain they're the Nike Pegasus, what number comes after them I do not know. What I do know, though, is that Amazon have a huge variety online so check them out!
As well as wearing a new pair of trainers, I tried out something else new today, a doubled up jacket. I really wanted to wear my duster coat for a bit of a Stockholm street-style vibe but new I would completely freeze so I had an a-ha moment and layered my leather jacket under it. I liked the look of the doubled lapels and mixed texture so this was another moment I was happy with myself for! Don't worry though I soon got knocked down a peg or two when I noticed I had rolled one of my trouser legs up and the other one down which made me look totally lopsided, thankfully this moment wasn't captured but it did leave me a little red-faced afterwards. I'm not all that wonderful!
