Autumn Blooms

& Some Fluffy Balls & Too…

Has anyone else made note of how absolutely lush the A/W trends are at the moment? From floral embroidery, excessive ruffles and beautiful silky materials. I very rarely go down the trend route, but boy have I had to keep my spending in check because I am very much here and ready for it all, honestly, truly *Joanne The Scammer Voice*. Essentially this blog post is an ode to florals, flowing dresses and as always, chatting about the weather...


Things I Like #1.

Occasionally I will come across things online that are far too cute / perfect / amazing for me not to share, and although I'm a Pinterest addict, i feel like this is probably the best place to share them as  not everyone uses it (You totally should if you aren't yet!), so here is what might be a monthly or even bi-monthly series of things that have piqued my interest, and might pique yours too!


Vulnerability & Bare Legs.

Bare Legs, Bare Heart...

I think, judging by the fallen leaves, influx of scarves and gloves in shops, and the reappearance of the iconic Pumpkin Spice Latte, that Summer is well and truly over, and Autumn is finally here. And with Autumn, comes another academic year. Usually i'm always quite excited for another year of learning, but this is final year, six years of education, working in practice, struggling with MH and so many highs and lows and realising that this is my final hurdle, (minus finding a part two job after i graduate) leaves me with a funny feeling in my tummy. It's hard sometimes because as much as you shouldn't compare your life to other's, I always wonder if i've made the right choice in life. 


Twenty Five.

"I asked her what she wanna be when she twenty five - she turned and looked at me, and she said.. alive.."

I'd be flat out lying if i said that I feel a little wiser, a little smarter, or even a little older. Twenty Five feels exactly the same as eighteen did. Over the past couple of weeks, I panicked and wringed my hands at the thought of hitting twenty five and not throwing a huge party to celebrate. Don't get me wrong, I am exceedingly happy to have made it to this age relatively unscathed, alive, and very much well. There have been times in the past when i thought everything was tumbling down around me and that was it, I wasn't going to make it, but I did, and i'm standing tall to shout my testimony from the rooftops. I made it to twenty five, and I'll be celebrating another twenty five years and more. The pressure surrounding birthdays is immense, especially when it's a milestone one, so instead of subjecting myself to said pressure, I've simply planned a day of doing my favourite things, like eating Korean food, adding another piercing to my mounting list (YOLO *Sings grown woman by Beyonce*), and of course, sipping on a coffee in one of my favourite places.


Playful Dressing

The Art of Wearing What You Like..

There are so many articles and think pieces that go into great detail in regards to what one should wear for their body type, height, skin tone, political agenda… you name it. For example, I did't wear horizontal stripes for a long time because it had been drilled into my head that horizontal stripes were apparently 'unflattering'. Now that i'm older and a little wiser, I'm a firm believer in wearing whatever the hell you want, as long as you (the most important thing here!) feel comfortable in it! I ummed and ahhh-ed about this beautiful Moddolly smock dress because of it's length and cutesy design. On one hand I thought oh gosh i'm going to be 25 soon, shouldn't I be wearing heels and skirt suits everywhere? And on the other hand I thought Oh-my-gawsh-it's-soooooo-cute-must-have-it. The latter obviously won, and for good reason, the detailing on this dress is out of this world and I received so many compliments from people the first day i debuted it.
Sometimes with blogging it feels like you have to sort of stick to your one style to make it 'work' for you, but i love being able to switch it up from vampy, to cutesy to easy breezy simple with just my mood and I guess that's what I love about style, it's so personal to each and every one of us.
