21st Century Cowgirl

Feeling like a cowgirl in this fringe wrap from my mums wardrobe... It's definitely an autumn piece but its the perfect transition from full on winter jacket. I've been a slightly lazy dresser recently- that's what extensive exam revision does for you, thanks uni- so this has been stolen one too many times. Ps, these wedges were £20 on sale!? I'm still in shock/delight/ need to stop spending money in the sales.

Body Electric

We walked to the abandoned University buildings near where I live and discovered this amazing graffiti- so cool I love it. FINALLY we have some heat, not yet warm enough to go jacket-less but getting there. I rediscovered this grey denim from ASOS that I bought many years ago in a sale- cropped and cool structure, definitely going to be wearing it more.

This UO creation is the comfiest skirt I've ever worn. It's also the only maxi skirt I own because I usually feel like the length drowns me... But I can put up with this one because it is literally the easiest thing to wear.

Rucksacks and Teddy Fur

Falling in love all over again with my teddy fur jacket.. feeling thankful today for Scotland's shit weather because it means I can get away with wearing it for a couple more weeks. New addition to wardrobe: black leather rucksack- what do you guys think of these? This H&M one looks basic but it's button and mesh details make it look a lot more expensive I think.. Anyways I felt like a five year old all over again and couldn't help but skip my way home so the rucksack is definitely to stay for this sole reason.

Decieving kitten heels

I'm in a new phase of wearing large knits over leather jackets, it's still too cold for me to get away with wearing just the one but I'm kind of liking the layering... Effortless and warm at the same time, I'm loving it. Big mistake though wearing these leopard prints into town- they definitely add to an all black outfit but don't let the 3 inch kitten heel fool you! They are painful after an hour walking!

Honey, I'm on fire I feel it everywhere

jacket Zara/ top Missguided/ jeans Topshop/ boots Vagabond/ sunglasses ASOS/ earrings Accessorize
My comfort zone, dressed wise, is definitely black. Wearing a pink and majority white outfit felt very girly, unusual and actually a little uncomfortable... I thought the two colours would be offset by the leather and black boots, but it just didn't feel right. The ponytails stem from the Elle Suri Waterhouse for Buberry shoot: literally the easiest hairstyle, no brushing necessary, and I think it turned out looking alright? Maybe a little kiddish alongside the light colours though so I'll be sure to team them with a darker outfit next time.

Pastel and Jelly Summer Cravings

sunglasses- all ASOS/ skirt, tshirt and shoes Missguided/ bikini H&M last season/ DKNY pink blossom perfume
Seeing all the SS14 collections hitting the shops has made me seriously crave some hot weather... The coat, jumper and jeans combination feels so overdone now. The bikini and sunglasses are all last season but the rest are from Missguided's new spring collection: I must admit the pastel trend at first was unappealing but I love how the baby pink contrasts with the PVC. I suppose you could describe it as pastel with an edge? Also what do you think of these sparkly jelly shoes?

Made of Stone

No matter what I wear I always feel it looks so boring on camera haha, it was a gorgeous day today so my spring white jeans made an appearance. I teamed them with a Bowie tshirt I got as a present which is also white... Too much? I just love white. With reference to the posts title I watched the Stone Roses documentary today and loved it. It's amazingly edited, even if you don't like the band the cinematography alone is well worth the watch.
