This year I decided I wanted to be a style blogger because I love clothes, dressing up and experimenting. From blogging my outfits I learned to make better use of what was in my wardrobe for fear of posting the same #ootd twice!

For me style is about self-expression and this year I wore outfits I wouldn’t have worn in the past. I used to worry about the way I dressed quite a lot because I didn’t have much confidence.

My style has always been very ‘here and there’ because I see it as dressing up. I have never wanted to look like everyone else because that isn’t fun. I can go from dressing in shades of grey to wearing a bunch of bright colours that clash.

I have bought quite a few new things recently  and I can’t wait to share the outfits in 2015.

See you on the flipside :-p

SS14 Trends: 3D Florals

Hey 🙂

Floral is one of those  trends that will always be ‘on trend’ for spring and summer, I guess that makes it timeless. I think the idea of 3D florals is a way for designers to do something different with the same old same floral print, they’ve taken it to the next level.

A-Z Fashion Guide: Appliqué LFW A/W 14/15 Holly Fulton John Rocha

I really like this trend, it’s one that I’ll definitely be embracing.

So what do you think?

Will you be rockin’ 3D Florals this SS14?

Let me know in the comments.

SS14 trends: Sports Luxe

Hey so here is the first post of my SS14 Trends collection.

I think most people already know what sports luxe is, but just to define it- I’d say its a luxurious take on the sporty/athletic look. Not that it has to be expensive, it’s like ‘the fashionable females take on looking sporty’.

 

Clothes: athletic style trousers, crop tops, racer-back tops or dresses, shorts, bomber jackets and sports jerseys.

Footwear: trainers,wedge trainers and ankle strap sandals.

Fabrics: sheer,mesh and leather.

Details: panels and asymmetrical shapes.

What do you think  of the Sports Luxe trend?

Love it/hate it?

Will you be embracing it?

Spring Trends ’14

Hey,

So I live in England and its currently still winter but I’m really looking forward to the warmer weather.

This week I was looking through the Stylist Magazine and they had a section on upcoming spring trends.

My first thought was ‘blog about it’ and that is what I am doing.

So without further ado:

SPRING TRENDS ’14

Lilac

Logos

Sports Luxe

Wearable Art

3D Florals

These obviously aren’t all the trends but I just decided to focus on a few.

Other SS14 trends: crop tops, sheer (prints and layering), blush pink and white boyfriend trousers to name a few

I’m going to be doing lots more fashion related posts focusing on each trend one by one with outfit ideas and more.

If you like the sound of that then click follow, to be in the know (ooooh that rhymed!).

If you’ve also done a post on next seasons trends, I’d love to see it so feel free to leave a link in the comments. Or just leave a comment letting me know what upcoming trends your looking forward to trying.

New year, new me???

Hey,

Happy New Year!!!

How’s your new year been so far?

Its only day one and I feel like I’ve already given up on the whole “fresh start, new me” thing sort of because today has been rather unproductive. I’m tired from going out last night and the weather outside my window is the epitome of bleak.

Today is the start of my Vegetarian January, which I’ll be blogging about weekly. On one hand I’m looking forward to experimenting with not eating any meat but on the other hand I’m thinking “What if I get the urge for fried chicken?”

New Years resolutions

Well I just want to work hard, get good grades, experiment and try new things, do volunteering, get a job, continue gaining confidence and have lots ‘n’ lots of fun!

Almost forgot, I also want to improve my blog; in terms of audience and content.

If you have a New Years resolutions post leave a link in the comments and I’ll be sure to check it out.
