Wearing: J Crew dress, Topshop sunglasses (similar), Dune shoes
The past couple of weeks have been very hectic; finishing my final A-Level exams, leaving school forever (!!!), passing my driving test, celebrating friends birthdays and now my own 18th. I’m finally a free woman which means plenty of time for regular blog updates and sharing lots of recipes and other style-related content.
I kicked my birthday off with a lovely brunch with my mum and sister in Shoreditch and a wander round in the sunshine. I’m keeping this post very short and sweet as I’ve got celebrating to do, but I look forward to whatever adult life brings and an exciting summer ahead.
Now, pass the gin *insert dancing lady emoji*.
MANGO coat, H&M hat, jeans and necklace, TOPSHOP boots, WHISTLES bag
I’ve never been much of a hat person, I just don’t seem to have the right face shape – I’d like to thank the chipmunk cheeks I was blessed with as a baby that have not seemed to disappear with age. Nevertheless, I was very much drawn to this wool hat in H&M and was pleasantly surprised with the fit (and the price tag). I quite like the very interesting, structured style of the hat’s crown and how it differs from the typical fedora styles. When trying to shoot this outfit, however, the forceful winds today seemed to be attempting to blow it off my head. A sign that hats are definitely not for me? Perhaps so, but a gal can experiment.
On the topic of unexpected buys, I picked up this Whistles clutch in the sale for a ridiculous £25 (!!!) thank you sale prices plus ELLE’s £20 off voucher the other week. Pink’s not a colour I would have ordinarily opted for – black or white would of course be my go-to colour – however, this shade of pink is so gorgeous I couldn’t resist. I have become partial to carry clutch bags recently rather than an actual handbag when I don’t have to; phone, keys, cherry Carmex, money – done. I think I’m so sick of being a crazy bag lady at school, with my school bags, canvas tote for sketchbooks, as well as various other carrier bags, that I try and stick to an easy clutch on weekends.
