White Shoes

Jeans - ASOS
T-shirt - Primark
Cardigan - Monki (via ASOS)
Shoes - Boohoo

I have been hunting for a pair of chunky, white, ugly, love/hate shoes for months. These shoes are definitely marmite shoes, you either love them or hate them and I love them! White shoes are on trend right now and I'm embracing them with open arms. They have a chunky heel but are some of the comfiest shoes I've worn and they look great to ease into hotter weather. I loved them with this jean and cardigan outfit, I had a hint of summer but still practical and warm. I think in warmer whether they'll look great with bare legs and a dress. They are from Boohoo and were a bargain at just £22, it was my first order from the website and it arrived super quickly. Boohoo's shoe game at the moment is strong, I have my eye on a few more pairs. If you are looking for some awesome shoes check out Boohoo.

Hobo Comfort

T-shirt - ASOS
Jeans - Topshop
Cardigan - Monki (via ASOS)
Necklace - Pull & Bear
Shoes - Converse
Hat - New Look

The title of this post/ootd is based on what my brother said to me whilst taking the photos, 'you look like a hobo, want me to get you a bottle of cider?' Charming I know! I just like to be comfy and this outfit is beyond comfort. Oversized knit and t-shirt combo was perfection. The hat was just to hide my fluffy poodle hair. Also he is like 6ft 4 hence the high angle photos. 
 It is deadline week currently for all my creative subjects at college, hence my slight absence on my blog sorry. However I will have some cool textiles clothing and photo shoots to blog about, so you can all look forward to that, if it floats your boat. I hope if you guys have exams or coursework, whether for uni, college or school they are all going well and remember take some time for yourself too!

Cardigan - Monki
Dress - Topshop
Necklace - Pull and Bear
Bag - Primark 
Boots - eBay

The warmer weather may have arrive but I've gone and bought myself a long cardigan. Madness? No I've been looking for a cardigan like this and spotted the Monki one a while ago. I was browsing through the ASOS website, as always, and spotted it in the sale for £18. I couldn't stop myself and since it has arrived I've barely taken it off. It may by my favourite piece of knit wear I have EVER owned and I'm considering buying the other colour too! It is such a cosy cocoon! I'm also loving this necklace I picked up in my Bristol Buys post from Pull and Bear. It is perfect to add a statement to a more subtle outfit. It is the perfect statement necklace for me, it combines my love for chunky jewellery and crystals. Also if you wondered it isn't too heavy!

West Bay

  Rucksack - Primark
Jeans - ASOS 
Shirt - Blitz London
Yesterday me and Alex drove to West Bay to enjoy the sun. It is rare we get a full day together to go off and do stuff so we embraced it. The weather was sunny with a hint of breeze, especially by the sea. We walked all along the beach and you can see the beautiful rock face we walked next too. I think it is crazy that at one time it was underwater, imagine that! We then walked all along the cliff too and looked down on the beach, a little high but bloody beautiful! For one crazy minute you could look at the sea and sun and forgot you were in England. However once having some fish and chips and ice cream we were happy to be in England! West Bay is beautiful and you should, if possible, venture down for a walk! 

Also there is still time to enter my giveaway, it ends tomorrow!

Bristol Buys

Necklace - Pull And Bear
T-shirt & Sunglasses - Primark 
Polaroid film (for SX-70) - eBay

Today me and Alex popped to Bristol for a bit of a wander and some retail therapy. I also had some college work to do involving photography and Bristol was the perfect location. I used my Polaroid SX-70 land camera to take some gorgeous black and white snaps. The film is ridiculously expensive but I love just having the photo there in your hands, but also the unpredictability of the outcome. I just find it exciting and sometimes you have really happy mistakes, tell me I'm not the only one excited over polaroids? We had some lunch in this sandwich place (can't remember the name but it is by Urban Outfitters) in Cabot circus, we always go there it has delicious sandwiches at really reasonable prices. I only bought a few bits as I didn't really see much I wanted, or if I did they didn't have my size. We were lucky it has been gorgeous weather today and we drove with the roof down, not so good for my hair! I hope you've all done something enjoyable in the sun, let me know in the comments!

 Today my blog is a Year old! It doesn't feel that long at all but I'm glad I've seen it grow in this time. Sorry the outfit photos aren't great, I had to take them myself and this isn't an easy task. I had to press the button and run in front for the picture. Having more time (I'm on half term) meant I could try something a bit different with my hair, I saw this tutorial on the lovely Anna Lee and Jesse's Youtube channel, you can check out the tutorial. You can also see I'm wearing my now inseparable 'Gold teeth' necklace, this leads to my next anncouncement. To celebrate my one year blog milestone, I am giving away a 'Gold teeth' necklace and a set of midi rings from Black tied.

Today me and Alex popped into Wells. We had some lunch and then a little wonder. Our main reason for popping into Wells was to chat about our tattoo's we are planning/booking.
