Mini dresses are my go to piece to wear when having an evening out. Is there any better opportunity to show off as much leg as you can. IMG_0171 (2)

Relaxed (lazy) style is my everything, picking everyday pieces that are comfortable mixed in with something a little special to create a workable, wearable outfit.

On lazy days balance is key, I don’t want to be wearing dresses that I have to have the best sitting posture in or the jeans that are to tight and show my knicker lines ( hello those 3 easter eggs) I also don’t want to be wearing my scruffy clothes with all the paint stains on.

This embellished jumper caught my eye from across the store, a bold statement from such a basic grey jumper. Paired with my trusty ripped jeans and cognac boots ( for some added hight ) Teamed with my beaded tassel earrings Zandra Rhodes bag and some much needed lipstick to complete my favourite relaxed look.

Can you wear two dresses in one outfit? the answer is yes, yes you can.

I’ve had this red dress in my wardrobe for about 4 months. I’ve never been able to find the right occasion or right accessorise to wear it. It’s a heavy suede and buttoned up it didn’t sit right on my frame. I wore it unbuttoned over my grey turtle ‘smock’ as a type of trench/short sleeved blazer. Adding my sky high boots that make me about 6ft 3 to complete the look.

Red Pea Coat

DSCN1393

I’m a coat hoarder, I collect coats like they are going out of fashion (I hope not). This Long Tall Sally coat I scored in a charity shop is my latest addition. A mix between a pea coat and a trench and a gorgeous red pink. Slightly pinched at the waist to give me a little shape and the long sleeves. Being a tall girl means that sleeves are always short on me. but Long Tall Sally cater to the tall girl which is perfect for me as I’m 5 10.DSCN1392 DSCN1391

The knitted texture kept me warm on my beach walk with Stacey. DSCN1394

Double Denim

DSCN1388

Double denim has come into my life and I want him (her) to stay. I’ve paired my Danish denim coat with my ripped knee grey jeans. The dark denims compliment each other with getting out of my comfort zone. Apparently curly hair is on trend so I left mine to air dry. I’m all for curly hair being on trend, it means I can stop damaging my locks so much trying to straighten it.

I spent the day over in Wimborne looking around the shops and stopped into Walford Mill. An old mill that’s been converted into an art gallery and gift shop. The last time I was here was to sketch the exhibit on show for my A-level exam, which was about 4 years ago!

This is the only photo I took inside, you’ll just have to see the creativity for yourself.

Walford have workshops and new exhibits on all the time, so get yourself down there and get cultured. 😉

Vintage Daisy Dress

DSCN1374 DSCN1375 DSCN1376 DSCN1378 DSCN1350 DSCN1351 DSCN1352

I truly love vintage dresses. I snapped this daisy dream up for £2!!

There is nothing I want more from a dress then a great skirt, the movement when I walk is something I just don’t really find anymore in a day dress. Added addition of boots and leather jacket make the feminine dress much harder and more my style. My inspiration was Beyoncé  when she stands on the cop car in her video for Formation.

I’ve been listening to it non stop.

Chinese Winter Wonderland

Chinese new year is just around the corner and Bournemouth are in full celebration mode. Boscombe have put on Chinese winter wonderland. I headed over to sample some delicious food. There were events going on over both days but we got completely distracted by the food stalls. DSCN1339 DSCN1341DSCN1335-001

 Chinese pork bun/Cha siu bao which was so delicious the puffy bun was light and the perfect bed for the sweet hot barbecue pork inside.

DSCN1326

I don’t remember what this is called but let me tell you it was so so delicious. Rise, boiled egg, star anise, beef. My little Nephew who’s a fussy eater loved this dish so much i couldn’t feed him fast enough.DSCN1327

These was a sort of asian omelette with squid in i think, coated in a generous amount of spice.

Followed very quickly by Korean glass noodles that weren’t my favourite but mum loved them. They were such a success that I wasn’t quick enough to get a snap of them.

DSCN1329

Washed down with Yobu’s mango bubble tea with lychee balls.

DSCN1330 DSCN1331 DSCN1333 DSCN1340

None of us had ever had bubble tea before, now we are all huge fans. Some enjoyed it way more then others. Little man loved the lychee balls in the tea that you chew when you drink. All the food venders are restaurant owners in and around Bournemouth.

Don’t forget that Chinese new year is on 8th February and I hope you are all going to celebrate in some way.

Blush Slip

SS/16 trends are in and I’m fully behind most of them ( well all of them really) but I’m not convinced by the slip dress. Rochas and Emilio Pucci’s slips were so bang on with my style. There are a few body types that would look amazing in the slip. But on my body taking into account my stature ( hello 5 10!) and that I’m a smaller waist them my hips, it would mean that the slip dress would sit or cling to this area. I would definitely find it really hard to not think I was wearing a nightie overtime I wore it. Also blush is meant to be huge this season, gorgeous grey toned pinks and peaches are going to be huge in my wardrobe.

The slip dress really follows the whole under wear as outer wear, but maybe a little to much. Here is how I styled this trend.

No slip dress for me, however i still keep on trend with this style by making a blush pink top.

Birthday Style

As of Wednesday i’m now 22, it’ been the most amazing 21 years and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

I spend the afternoon in class h, which was great because I got to see your friends.

DSCN1269 DSCN1288 DSCN1270 DSCN1287 DSCN1271

I love this outfit because it incorporates all the things I love to wear, grey, denim and a leather jacket. Muted grey tones are perfect for me in winter. Having pretty much no tan i’ve found it suites my skin tone much better, and of course my favourite popcorn necklace.
