I AM GROOT!


Tee - Primark // Blazer - Zara // Jeans - UO // Brogues - Hobbs // Silk Scarf - &otherstories

Hiya everybody (doctor nick voice)! I think every single one of my posts is always going to have an apology of some sort about my awful blogging schedule, if you can even call it a schedule. Today I went to see Guardians of the Galaxy and it was AWESOME. Groot was my favourite. I wore my new brogues for the first time and they proved to be very comfortable... LOVE THEM! I have been wanting these shoes for the longest time and I snagged it up in the sale for £45 reduced from £180 or something crazy. The silk scarf is from &otherstories and it was in the sales too and 70% off and the man repeller made me buy it since I love the way she wears her silk scarfs.

1, 2, jump!

I have been such a bad blogger... I have no excuse. On the bright side, I am an employed woman once again. I will be working only for the summer at a cd and dvd shop, which is perfect really since I will be going to university in september.

Here is something I wore a few days ago.

Plaid top - Uniqlo // Jumpsuit - Topshop

I decided to wear my hair in milkmaid braids and I love it! I'm cutting a lot of my hair for when I go to uni and just enjoying the long-ness of my hair right now. I don't think I've ever had my hair this long (even though you can't see it in this post LOL )


BOO! Excuse the silly face haha.



Here is my mother and I drinking a coconut at St. Pauls carnival. So yummy!

freedom!!

I am now officially free from a thing called... exams. Sorry for not blogging the past month, I really wanted to, but alas I kept forgetting to take pictures of my outfits and also because I had exams, duh haha. My last exam was last week and I have just been loving guilt free chilling out, though it does feel weird not being guilty. I always feel like I should be doing revision when I don't need to do it anymore. England has had a stint of lovely weather these past couple of weeks (though, I complain that is too hot). Here is the outfit I wore yesterday. I bought the dress from Topshop Vintage section on SALE! I wore it backwards because I love the neck line, or is it back line? Note to self: take better pictures.

Dress - Topshop Vintage // Shoes - Ebay 

Here are a few pictures of me and my friends and what I've been up to in my hiatus. Gosh, I love that word... hiatus.

On me - Topshop Dress

Lily, Tanzi and Me chilling in Tanzi's garden. We made cocktails, and it was very bitty, but rather tasty.


Hassan (nice face) , Mehry, Nabeeha and me.

Taken on the day that I had finished my exams. We went to Las Iguanas, which is a Mexican restaurant. I really wanted to try some Mexican food YUM.


Bought, cooked and ate my first ever artichoke... it was delicioso.


Look how nice the weather is!

bad judgements


Jumper - H&M // Jacket - Topshop // Jeans - H&M // Hat - Topshop // Shoes - Superga

Hello people, this is what I wore today; pretty simple because I was riding my bike and don't want to be concerned about exposing myself in skirts etc. My weather judgement was completely off today, it was overcast but rather hot, and here I am wearing a jumper, jacket and jeans. I also just realised my whole outfit is basically just Topshop and H&M.

Today I went to do some outdoor revision with a friend of mine. I don't get why I still insist on going to revise in the outdoors when I end up just chilling in the sun and forgetting about the revision; probably just an excuse to go out. We went to Victoria Square in Bristol and did some "revision", then had a walk around the harbour side. We were sitting on the edge of the harbour and I nearly got bitten by a swan as it was literally 10cm away from me, it was crazy... I recorded the whole ordeal. All in all a pretty good day.




S.S Great Britain permanently docked in Bristol Harbourside. Can't see it fully though :(.


On another note, I have been patiently waiting for this darn book to arrive (damn you Book Depository). I can't wait to read it! I think I will do a separate post about it when I finish reading it.

So tell me, what are you currently reading?

rachel comey s/s 14

I think you're meant to post these sort of things with the season ahead in mind, but I thought it was more appropriate to post about the season that we're in. Even though it's meant to be spring here in the UK, our sun has done a runner and the days have been dreary and grey :(.

I have always loved Rachel Comey. I think my love started when I saw annabel from blushingambition wear her boots, this was around 4 years ago, and I've been wanting a pair of mars boots ever since.
I adore these lace pieces! They are so s/s appropriate. So feminine yet cool. I am a sucker for anything lace or embroidered. 
Some more structured pieces, reminiscent of 60s fashion which is right up my alley.
More loosey goosey, that burnt orange is DIVINE!
My picks on what I would wear to a summer party. I don't exactly know what a summer party entails but this is what I would wear.


So, what's your spring/summer staple this year? Let me know in the comments.

headless sheana


Dress - Vintage Ebay // Jumper - Vintage UO // Shoes - Superga 

Hello people, it's been a few days since I last post because I had a creativity/blog post block and also because I wasn't wearing anything blogable. You will not be seeing my face in this post either as I have swollen eyes and its not that pretty. Today was a friend of mine's birthday, her name is Lily, I wish I had taken pictures. We tried to cook sushi and well lets just say it didn't go to well (rice needed more cooling and rice vinegar), but it was still edible. In addition to sushi we also watched The Incredibles, I forgot how much I love that movie, one of my favourites! It was quite a low key birthday as Lily already had a big party not too long ago.


Today I wore a vintage dress I bought on eBay, once I saw it I had to buy it. Green is a colour my wardrobe lacks, but lately I've been drawn to buy a lot of green (see previous post wearing a green dress) The cardigan I'm wearing is missing a couple of buttons but hey ho its comfy. I think the pattern clash is pretty cool and makes the outfit more interesting but subtle enough to not be too jarring.

My body looks extra long in these mirror photos, but just bare in mind the angle at which I'm taking the photo haha. I suck at outfit photos!

sixties babes


I am so obsessed with the 60s, especially the fashion of that era. I have collated a few images of my favourite outfits from some of my favourite people in the 60s. Why do I like 60s fashion? Well, I love the silhouette and the femininity of it without without the clothes being frilly and pink. Also... 60s hair people!

Influence from 60s fashion is always prevalent in one runway show or another in every single fashion week. The one I can remember from the top of my head is Nicolas Ghesquiere (is that how you spell it, I'm sorry Mr. Nicolas) for his first Louis Vuitton collection.

Who doesn't love Anna Karina? She has a great style, a fellow nautical clothes lover and she has enviable hair. 

Francoise Hardy, my girl crush. She's french and she makes beautiful music and she happens to have great style. French and 60s go like bread and butter.


The Shrimp (Jean Shrimpton), unconventionally sexy. An iconic fashion model in the 60s. Very chic indeed! 


 Lastly, Twiggy. I cannot list a 60s inspiration post without including this babe. I just feel like she was one of the pioneers of 60s fashion.

So, tell me what's your favourite era?

Oh and here is a song by Francoise Hardy.
