I’m dusting off my camera and starting up my blog again.
I’ve been lacking inspiration and confidence when it comes to clothing lately. Partly from the high streets sudden obsession with cropped clothing especially tops and shorts which is fine if your one of the Cheeky Girls but for the rest of us not so good. It’s becoming a challenge just to find clothes that fit properly –a basic of clothes shopping surly?
I’ve also had some body confidence issues and was not feeling the “smile for the camera” kinda vibes. I’m not sure if it was the recent heat wave setting off a panic , the pressure of that perfect “summer bod”or having to walk past Calvin Klein and their massive cardboard cut out of Kendal Jenner every day on the way to work.
However after making some healthier lifestyle choices (ditching my dailey breakfast muffin) and having a huge wardrobe clear out I’m feeling much more positive.so I thought I would share some of the new favourite items in my wardrobe right now…
Polka Dot Blazer
This item without a shadow of a doubt is one of my current favourite items in my wardrobe. I have worn this on a fair few nights out and occassions. Polka dot print and blazers are both strong trends at the moment, so to combine the two is just perfection. It’s really light weight and comfortable unlike some blazers which can be quite bulky and stiff. This blazer goes with so much and looks amazing for a night out styled with black skinny jeans and a logo tee.
As soon as I saw these instant thoughts of the 90’s and Clueless came to mind. There have been a lot of the check pleated mini skirts on the high street but I thought these trousers are a great way to do the trend but without worrying about getting your legs out. These lovely’s are high-waisted and are perfect for tucking a t-shirt into which is a look I am obsessed with at the moment.
Although I love going to festivals bum bags have never really been my thing. There is just something about them that just never appeals to me until recently. The classic bum bag has had a much needed update and now looks much more luxurious and quirky. I love the new box shape and how the strap is more like a belt buckle. I’ve seen them in pretty much every colour and texture including velvet. It was a hard choice between silver and bright red but I decided silver would be more wearable and liked the contrast between the gold metal. They are the ultimate accessory for the sports luxe look, plus you get to be hands free.
