OOTD // Check ✔

Dress - Thrifted // Shirt - Vintage // Heels - Boohoo // Fedora - Vintage

001 // Long time no outfit post! Being a student at a school that has a uniform makes it a lot harder to post outfit photos because I'm pretty much in a uniform 24/7. But now that it's summer, I have a lot more opportunities to post outfits. And thankfully I'm going to a college that doesn't have a uniform so hopefully I can keep this up on a regular basis! 

002 // I know they are quite a wintery print but I have been loving checks/gingham/plaid (whatever you want to call it) at the moment! I love how you can mix and match them and it can never look bad. I loved this dress when I found it but I felt it was just a little too girly and "cutesy" for me so I thought teaming it with the plaid shirt tied around my waist and some kick ass chunky platforms would toughen it up a little and I think it really works!

I hope your summer has been fab so far and I'd love to hear your opinion on summer checks! x

Year 11 Prom







001 // I'm sorry it's been so long since I last posted but the last month has been so hectic! I had the last of my exams, prom, endless parties, fashion shows (which I will post about in a little while!) and to top it all off, my big brother and his girlfriend have just had a wonderful baby boy who is stealing everyone's attention! Make sure to check out my instagram for endless baby pics!

002 // But to make it up to you guys I thought I would share some pictures from my recent year 11 leaver's prom. It was a great night and a lovely way to say farewell to some amazing people I have gotten to know over the past 5 years. I had lots of compliments on my dress, which was from thecelebritydresses.com, and no, that is not a skin coloured panel inside the front, it is my sunburn line... that I managed to get by sunbathing in my back garden... in England! Who knew good old blighty could be so damn hot!?

003 // So seeing as this summer break is extra long, I have a few exciting fashion/blogging thing planned so stay tuned for those! I'll try not to disappoint...

Let me know if any of you had a prom recently and I would love to see what you wore! x

Monthly Favourites // May

 Sup guys! I know it's been a little while but I have finally got a small break from exams seeing as it is half term so I thought I would show you what I have been loving over the month of May. Lets go!


First on this May's favourites is this gorgeous silver statement coin necklace. I have been slightly obsessed with the bohemian coin jewellery at the moment and I thought this necklace was simply perfect when I saw it! If you were to buy a necklace like this from a shop like Topshop, you would expect to pay around £15-£20 for it, but since I am a rigorous bargain hunter, I managed to find this on eBay for just £4! I'm proud. It is a really good quality, feels nice and heavy and makes a satisfying jangling noise when you move around. I can't wait to wear this all summer long.



I've always loved burning incense sticks, ever since I was a little kid, there's just something really soothing and mind-clearing about them, so I recently bought my own little incense holder which is this adorable black wooden elephant. I did want to buy a holder that has a tray for the ash to fall on to but I couldn't resist this little guy! The sticks I have been burning at the moment are lavender scented and smell sooo good. I would definitely recommend incense to anyone that is looking for a cheap alternative to scented candles because I feel that the scent is much stronger and my rooms smells gorgeous for up to a week afterwards!



 I have been looking for a good concealer for donkey's years now and decided to try out the Collection's Lasting Perfection concealer and I have to say I'm quite impressed. As you can see I got one in a light shade to use as a highlighter and a slightly darker one to use as a normal concealer, but turns out I'm paler than I thought and have ended up using the lighter one as both a concealer and a highlighter, which shouldn't make sense, but it works... 
These concealers have really good coverage, last a good while and are really reasonably priced as concealers go, a definite recommendation! 



I've recently acquired this gem and haven't stopped wearing it! I love five-panels, they are great for covering up unwanted bad hair days and can really tone down an outfit if you want a more casual look. I love this green colour with my hair and just couldn't resist buying it.
 

I've been loving this month's Company High Street Edit Magazine. I find it much more chic and mature than the original magazine and it is great for finding affordable stylish clothes. I love the visuals and the photography in this particular issue is gorgeous, definitely take a look if you come across one!


001 //  So I hope you guys like this month's favourites and I'm sorry I've missed a couple of months... I've had a weeks break from exams but go back to them on Tuesday so I might be AWOL again for a while. I will get back as soon as possible with some really exciting stuff to show you guys! Love ya xx

OOTN // Dinner Date







Fedora - Vintage // Mesh Tee - Handmade // Skort - NewLook // Boots - NewLook // Belt - Vintage Levis // Necklaces - Accessorize and gift

001 // Sup guys! This is what I wore to my friend's birthday meal tonight and I thought I would share it with you! Naturally, having a wardrobe full of clothes means I couldn't find anything to wear, so as any other normal person would, I decided to make this top last minute. I had had the black sports mesh fabric for a while and so I thought it was time to put it to good use! I wanted to make a big baggy tee out of it but I think all that black would wash me out and make me look a drowned. I feel like New Look has phases of having good stock and right now is definitely one of them. They've actually got a few good pieces in at the moment, especially these skorts and similar skirts. 

002 // Aren't you just loving the weather at the moment! As much as I love summer, I hate all the skimpy summer clothes and getting half naked just to survive in the heat! So this weather is the perfect combination - sunny enough to warm you up but cold enough to get away with wearing tights and trousers. Plus it provides amazing lighting for outfit photos ;) 

Make sure to let me know what you think of this ensemble in the comments and if you'd like to see a DIY on how to make these mesh tshirts!
