MONO

Jumper Tommy Hilfiger / Trousers H&M / Slides H&M / Bag ZARA / Rings H&M, Topshop, River Island

Happy September! I actually have a pretty jam-packed month coming up; bestival (woooooo!), moving back to nottingham, freshers week (I'm a fresher rep), and starting my final year at university. Really looking forward to it but need to get my designing cap on pronto. I've gone for a pretty easy option with this outfit, going back to the monochrome with my favourite pop of colour from my Zara mini bag. I'm also trying to squeeze out the final use of my slides as I can imagine the weather will only go downhill now we've said goodbye to August.

WEEKEND COSY

Jumper ZARA / Skirt Topshop / Bag DKNY / Necklace Topshop / Shoes Urban Outfitters

Sometimes you just need a cosy jumper to get you through the weekend. This pink number was a bargain from the latest ZARA sale and is an easy pick for a quick go-to outfit. I've also started falling in love with the midi skirt again. Perfect for the english summer and can take you through to those colder days in the autumn months.

TRANSITION

Coat River Island / Top Zara / Jeans Topshop / Birkenstocks / Backpack Primark

After a warm New York summer and travelling in California for 3 weeks, coming back home to a British summer was quite a shock for me! I'm finding the weather very hit and miss and although the sun does get his hat on (occasionally) I tend to bit quite chilly when out and about. I'm constantly wishing for another heat wave but I fear that autumn is well and truly on its way. Alas I'm now digging out the winter coats whilst still attempting to keep the rest of my outfit summery, mixing up lighter denim and some summery prints.

DOUBLE DENIM

Shirt DKNY / Joni Jeans Topshop / Boots ZARA / Clutch Fiorelli via ASOS

I have always been a massive fan of a double denim look and this (over-worn) patchwork shirt adds interest to solid denim look. This 'summer' has been pretty wet so I'm already digging out my winter booties. These electric blue boots have been a favourite of mine as I've worn them all year round. They add a splash of colour to a dull winter day or I use them as an easy throw on with a pretty summer dress.

PRINT PATTERN/PATTERN PRINT

Jacket Ralph Lauren / Top H&M / Skirt ZARA / Belt Vintage / Birkenstocks

So my New Year's resolution was to inject some more print and pattern to my wardrobe, and I can tell you now, I have absolutely fallen in love with mixing prints and trying out new ways to wear my patterned pieces. This combo is an easy way for you to try out the mix-and-match idea with the help of a monochrome pattern to ease you in. The monochrome slightly tones down the outfit so you don't become a sight for sore eyes with too much clashing colour! I found this moo cow skirt in the ZARA sale back in january and it has definitely become a wardrobe favourite. I highly recommend you to hunt down a monochrome patterned piece you feel comfortable wearing!

Guess who's back? Back again. Shady's ba---
Erm...yeah. So after a short hiatus from my blog I am back! To fill in the gaps for those of you who don't know - I was living in New York Cityyyy for the past year, completing a few internships as part of my placement year at university. I also managed to squeeze on a month of travelling down the US west coast throughout July, which was amazing! I have now moved back to england and will be returning to my student city of Nottingham in September to complete my final year of university arghhh! Scary how time flies!

Anyway, now I am back in england it will be a lot easier to resume with the blog posts and to be involved with the online community once again! I hope you can all welcome me back; I've missed you!
