Took a trip a day trip to London to see the Frida Kahlo exhibition at the V&A with some university friends. While we waited for a seat at Honest Burger Tess took some shots for me. I think London backdrops are so much more interesting. The orange moped was gorgeous.
Styling checked trousers has become my mission of late. I saw these button fastened ones in Primark of all places and i think they are perfect. I don’t think they are meant to be quite that cropped but I love the styling with the snake look black boots and cropped baggy grey jumper. The colour palette is so muted that colour was 100% needed. My trusty Topshop over coat was the perfect juxtaposition. Also kept me dry in the drizzly weather. Pearl hoops to add a little sophistication and glamour to the look and a vintage faux fur Calvin Klein to top it all off. Sometime super simple styling is sometimes the best.

I’ve explored so many castles and ruins in Dorset but never Durlston Castle in Swanage. Hayden and I went to have a walk with family and take in the castle. We set off from Swanage town, walking all the way up and over the cliffs to the Castle. Taking in the view of the Needles and Swanage Bay as we went. Do go see Durlston Castle because it is a beautiful place the views are amazing and get up to the top floor via the spiral staircase inside, the views up there are panoramic.

This Next jumpsuit is from last year, do you remember this post? here. I’ve not really worn it since but wasn’t ready to part with it. I paired it with red accessories and a blazer to move it away from a wedding guest look.

This is a ‘We Are Awesome Sassy Women (and anyone that needs a pep talk) and people can’t treat us like crap anymore’ blog post.For far too long I personally have been on the receiving end of shit. People ( cough boys) want to rain on my parade or take advantage, who think it’s cool to treat me like crap. I know some of you feel that way too. I say NO LONGER!!
We are the cool girls we are the ones that you aren’t good enough for. We are smart and funny and can step in line with all the others. If you come our way with an idea of how we should be for you, you get a middle finger. If you can love us for our sass, amazing sense of humour, killer looks, general good human being skills, step on over. Thank god for H, I no longer have to listen to Bull and can actually talk to a fit guy about cheese sandwiches and Irn Bru, who will take my outfit photos for me.Having someone in your life that appreciates you really highlights how little others think of you, and to brush them off asap.

Anyone else jumped on the small sunglasses trend? I tried the trend with these Romwe ones that were super inexpensive. If I become a fully fledged member of the Small Shades Gang I’ll be investing in some more. The black ones are really easy to wear. I got them in red too, but haven’t found the right moment to wear them yet. They are so much harder to style. I’m feeling all kinds of confident and am really excited to develop some great looks for summer.
My aim for the summer is to save some $$ to move out this year and get to the beach. I’m also interning over summer, possibly going to Italy and having a few stay-cations.
What are your plans for summer? Are you working or spending it sat on the beach somewhere?

Finding vintage dresses to wear this summer has become my favourite past time. I scooped this one a few weeks ago along with two others that I can’t wait to show you. The capped sleeves, the original cream buttons, it’s a vintage dream. I was super tempted to cut the hem shorter, but love the more conservative look at the length it is.
Paired with burnt orange/red slippers which are all over the shops at the moment. Mine are Primark and were such a bargain, I’ve my eye one a pair from Public Desire, that are way more extra then these. A wicker basket that is fit for a summer in Italy or at your local beach. Of course you need a pair of purple glasses. They defuse the the orange tone in the sun light, which means you can actually walk around without squinting, also no need to take them off when stopping into stores to buy water and ice-cream.
The ultimate vintage summer look.

After next week, there will be alot of new posts coming your way. How to shop vintage and where. Summer looks, stay-cations, vacations, university and a “mature student”, Vinted Everything.
Off out to dinner with the girls for one of my best friends birthday dinner. I never get the opportunity to get dressed up, I’m normally sat on the train doing work to and from university, in the comfiest clothes I can find.

Did you ever wear bright coloured clips in your hair when you were younger? I know I did, I think I still have them. But I feel that 23 is just a little two old to be wearing glittery pink butterflies or dangly beads in my hair. I found the prefect alternative and wore them in my hair while out with my mum for the day.
We walked around Ashley Cross in Poole. Which looks like a little stars hollow and stopped for a piece of cake at The Dancing Moose
A tea and a coffee with millionaire shortbread to share
Back to the Clips –
I braided my hair like normal and pushed them into the twists and there you have it. They are still add that element of fun but with a little more sophistication. The different metals are so chic. To finish I added my Purple shades, I felt like i was giving off Anastacia vibes and I loved it.

I’m all over the cacti trend, i have a few plants myself and a blanket, but I want to grow my collection. But for now I have this lovely t shirt. I wore it the opening of The Shed yesterday did you read the post? Heeled booties and my new cropped skinny jeans. Nothing else was really needed. I’ve worn this shirt so much, I’m in love. Selfies were taken in the changing room at Re:So, they have beautiful clothes and their changing room decor is too cute.
The bunny in a dress needs to be painted on my walls.
