Loafers, Brogues and Monkstraps

The 3 types  of shoes on my wishlist right now.

They are all classic smart shoes and perfect for the androgynous look which I am loving at the moment. I’m not sure which ones I’ll be getting first but I’ll probably get them in a matte black

Autumn in camisoles

This is just a quick outfit post because I didn’t get to take the photos the way I usually do. Lately I’ve been really liking the combination of a camisoles with a coat. I think its a really nice combination for autumn. I love smart coats, jackets and blazers. Wearing smart outer wear is a great way to look a little more put together and take an outfit from casual to smart casual. In this outfit I’m wearing old trainers but the outfit would be perfect with some black loafers.

Basic tee

I don’t really wear t-shirts that often, I much prefer a tank top or camisole. Anyway a while ago I bought a t-shirt from h&m, it was one of the basics so it only cost about £3.99.

I was going shopping one day then whilst choosing what to wear I took out the tee and decided that in order to ensure I wore it I should begin with it. I kept the outfit nice and simple and wore jeans then added a patterned jacket.

The jacket is also from h&m but it is really old, I’m pretty sure I got it t the beginning of 2013. I used to wear it all the time and I thought it was so cool but nowadays I don’t wear it as much. I think it has lost it’s charm with age.

So, I should totally go out and get myself a new statement jacket!

Making a comeback

HELLO!!!

Take my use of capital letters and exclamation marks as excitement!

I’m finally back 🙂

After taking a break for almost 3 weeks, I’m ready to start posting again.

So now on to the outfit which includes a floral cropped top which I really like as it’s not too short and it adds brightness to a dull outfit. I’m also wearing a grey cardigan, black jeans and a black backpack.

The backpack is has quickly become my go to bag as its big enough to fit my essentials, its black so it goes with everything and lastly because it leaves me hands free.

Thanks for reading,

Taking a break

So yesterday I was thinking and have decided that I’m  going to take a break from blogging for a little while. The reason for my break is because I’ve been feeling quite stressed about stuff in my life. I haven’t been enjoying blogging as much as I usually do because it sometimes feels like a burden particularly because I post daily. It’s not that I don’t have any ideas for posts, it’s more about the quality of what I’m writing and how much I’m enjoying it.

I’ve never taken a proper break from posting before and I’ve been a little resistant as I kind of felt like I was just giving up but I won’t be gone for more than a couple of weeks. I’m not disappearing from the blogging world as I’ll still be reading, liking and commenting on the blogs I follow as usual.

Until next time,

Cami+crop

On the left is a floral crop top from New Look which I got on sale for £6, I probably won’t get much wear out of it this year as Autumn is on it’s way and it’s very much a summer piece. I love the floral pattern on it and even though it’s cropped it isn’t too short.

The next item is just a basic black stretch camisole from Primark which was only £2, I got it to wear underneath my sheer tops as sometimes a visible bra isn’t quite appropriate. The thing about this stretch camisole is that it is ridiculously stretchy so much so that in the pictures above it looks like a dress; an extremely short one none the less !
