KEITH FOREVER | 22.12.15

How Keith is this shirt and hat combo? I Literally pinned an image of him wearing a very similar shirt about 30 minutes ago. Keith is my style hero always and forever but that's common knowledge by now. I found this slinky silk shirt in a charity store and it had mine and Keith's name written all over it.

Shirt - vintage, coat - Primark (old), jeans - Topshop, boots - Newlook, hat - eBay, rings - Topman.

I forgot how much I adore the colour purple and although there is something about it that reminds me of Chuck Bass (if you have never seen Gossip Girl then forget this sentence ever existed), it's a beautifully royal colour that should be seen way more often, especially in the form of a silk shirt.

I pulled one of my old wool jackets out of my closet for this outfit which came with free added dog hair, apparently. I'm always into colour clashing and mixing two rather royal colours together could not have worked better, it's also not that far from my usual dark colour palette so every ones a winner. Mr Chuck eat your heart out!

FYI this hat will not be coming off of my head for a while, sorry.


SIMPLICITY | 02.11.2015

Sometimes things don't have to be all patterns and sparkles, you know? It's hard to belive that's come out of my mouth but a tee and jeans can look so perfectly simple. I'm taking major inspiration from these simplistic attires and wearing a plain shirt and jeans on a more regular occasion.

I'm totally in love with the tom-boy element of it all, the baggy jeans and boxy t-shirt with a pair of old school chucks gives me all sorts of feels. I love that dressing down can look just as good as dressing up. It's also a pretty wise idea for winter because most practical (I know, how boring and mumsy of me) coats take over my outfits anyway so there isn't a lot of point in making all that effort with a cute OOTD just for it to be covered in your dozens of winter layers, scrap it and get back to basics!



16TH JULY 2015

I've taken a DIY project under my wing and now I can't stop thinking about what I can cover in patches, badges and anything else that's possible to to sew or glue onto denim.

My need to DIY denim started when I strolled past my local Levi's store and while lusting over the 501's in the window I saw a little crate full of patches in the corner. I rushed into store (I don't know why because they weren't going anywhere) and grabbed a sales assistant so they could take it out of the window and place it right on into my hands so I could rummage to my hearts content! It contained patches that looked like they came straight out of an American vintage store where you could deck yourself out in all the denim and leather you can imagine, it was dreamy.

As soon as I grabbed a couple it made me think of two gloriously bad-ass ladies I've followed for years, Brit Nason and her equally rad bestie Casey Strawberry. Both of which have the most awesome style which mostly consists of vintage goods and handmade items that you can find from their stores - Backbite and Tunnel Vision. This is indeed one of those times where I go on to moan about not living in the States because the custom charges and delivery times are an absolute joke, but I won't go into that for the hundredth time. I just need to suck it up and order some rad band shirts and Harley Davidson hot pants... Full on lusting over here! I have managed to score another gem on Depop though, which you'll be seeing in next weeks outfit post (oh the suspense). Depop and eBay seem to be the best for unique custom finds as I'm finding myself browsing on there nightly, I told you it was an obsession... Stay tuned for some custom goodness!

You may not know that I am in fact moving out on the 6th and it's the biggest thing I have ever done, I practically feel like an adult! It's all a very scary and daunting but also an extremely exciting experience that has come around so fast. Last year I thought I'd be at home for a long while yet, as I had no future plans in mind. I had thought about moving away and doing something a little different with my life but it didn't become a reality until now. I happened to find my love in life and he so happened to want to start somewhere new to. So there we were, thinking about plans and dreaming about our future home together, and all that dreaming has come around and it's finally here! In two days time that will no longer be a measly thought in both of our brains. Yikes, it's all about to become very real.

Of course the moving experience will be the most stressful encounter that we have been through and we will probably have handfuls of each others hair by the end of it, but we will also be left with our first home too. I will talk a little more about why and where we will be moving in my next post but for now I wanted to take my brain away from the stress of packing and think about something I'm very excited about, home decor. That's right, I will have my own space to kit out the way I want it! I'm a huge interior nerd, I absolutely adore anything homey and I often sit and look at DIY's such as making a bed out of Ikea storage or ways to display my dozens of pairs of shoes. So it's now time to put that never ending Pinterest board to use and actually take some home inspiration from it, finally! I literally cannot control myself, all I can think of is pretty hang rails and chairs and plants, somebody needs to stop me from buying useless attractive things and actually spend money on items I need...

I've collected up a few that I've recently pinned, but you can also find a heap more on my Home Decor board via Pinterest. A few other boards I keep returning too are of course Ghostparties, her taste is immaculate and modern and her own home is so dreamy too! Another board I often pin from is Kelsey Barnes, I'm always finding her pins on my home page and taking them for my own board.

If you're also moving soon then hopefully this will get you in the mood to decorate your home, or if you're an interior obsess-er like myself then simply just enjoy. For now though I better stop procrastinating and get back to packing everything I own into cardboard boxes.
