Stripes Are My New Thing

Where has the pink gone??? It’s official my pink theme is no longer… I know sad little cry moment… I decided I wanted something different, more unique and something that is my own. I tried different styles and filters and have settled on one which I love. It will allow my to be more creative and not be restricted to what I post and I can make my blog and Instagram a bit more personal now. WHOOP WHOOP!
As a fashion student I also thought that I should start including more fashion in my blog because really that is ‘what I want to do when I am older’ – legit hate that phrase so much!! So yesterday, my friends Bailey, Matt and I went to Plymouth for a little wonder and to capture some random pics for my blog… thank you for the photos Matt!

I want to talk about \\ STRIPES //. For a long while now they have been very trendy and to me look very ‘tumblr’. Lots of other bloggers have been mentioning stripes e.g. Poppy Deyes, and it did inspire me to add some to my wardrobe. I am not a fan of tops or dresses with excessive embellishments, even though that is coming into trendy for Autumn, it is OK not to like glitzy things. Stripes for me add something to an outfit to make it bolder, but without all the sequins or pompoms.
I want to mention — THIS — top from Boohoo which is striped with a bell sleeve on it. Even though there is a stigma around horizontal stripes and them making your appearance look wider, I still love the monochromatic vibe because black can actually make you appear slimmer. I am OBSESSED with the bell sleeve on it as it makes the top unique and its taking a modern approach to an 80s flared sleeve. Yes, it is a jumper and yes, it is August but I am getting true Autumn vibes at the moment.

My — SHOES — from New Look I honestly can’t stop wearing at the moment. Everywhere I go I wear these shoes and it feels like I have actually forgotten all my other shoes I own. They have a faint black snake skin print on them and they aren’t made out of canvas – which because I work behind a bar is essential as I can just wipe any stains off. But they are also super comfy and go with EVERYTHING!
The only black bag I actually own – SHOCK I know – is this cute little rucksack which I got from Boohoo sometime last year so is no longer available *sobs a little*. But it went really well with my outfit and it has lots of pockets to keep my SD cards in or my phone etc… But not forgetting the penny board – which Bailey bought along – and just so happened to match my outfit really well. The photos make me look like I am a PRO at it but obvs I fell off within five seconds of going on it….
