Double Denim

For the past couple of days I have had "writer's block" and by that I mean that I have been obsessively playing the Sims 4 and ignoring my blogging duties. But I've finally managed to crawl out of my house and take some pics of this funky outfit. The title is Double Denim although it should probably be called Triple denim because of the added bumbag which I have no shame in wearing (why is everyone so embarrassed about bumbags?!). I've been looking for flared trousers for ages and whenever I find a pair they always have a horrible paisley pattern on or something that would be seen on an extremely enthusiastic festival goer with a flower crown. So I decided to buy some flared denim jeans instead. The jeans fit really nicely on the thighs although they're so long that I had to put my black chunky heels on (short girl problems). My favourite part of this outfit has to be the lace up detail on the top! I saw it in a charity shop and knew I'd never be able to find it anywhere else.

Blue Flames

I love these two pieces of clothing and I always think "what can I pair this with?!". Then it clicked that I could put them together and voila! It works. I picked this top from the boohoo website as I'd been looking for an Austin Powers-esque keyhole top and this ticked all the boxes (especially since it's blue). I love the flame print on the skirt too, there's something very 90s about it and I'd imagine Destiny's Child might have worn something similar to this at some point. The socks are glittery with horses on that my mama bought me, and of course they are blue too. (Everything must be blue including the graffiti, which I didn't do may I add!) The shoes top it off as they're big and chunky which the rest of the outfit definitely isn't, I think it makes a nice balance.

A Big Green Wall

Summer is almost over and I'm desperately trying to make the most of all my cute summery outfits before the nice weather disappears completely! These were taken with a big grey cloud above me which soon after started to pour down so it's a miracle I don't look drowned. I often wear just white and I think that an all white outfit can be really simple yet stylish, however this time I decided to add in some extras to make the outfit a bit more interesting. The top and skirt have their own subtle details which is part of what I love about the outfit, there's a lot going on but you have to look closely. Written across the top is "ACIDA" in shiny white and the denim skirt is ripped at the bottom and frayed. The extras that I added in are the denim jacket, fishnet top, the sunglasses and of course the Lazy Oaf bag (that big purple thing that you can't miss).

Tennis Princess

If any of you grew up watching every single Disney film that was made (like I did) I'm sure a lot of you have dreamed of finding out that you're actually a princess or prince. Unfortunately for most of us this isn't the case, but there's nothing wrong with dressing up like royalty! I've always loved dressing up as a princess since I was younger (when it was acceptable) and have recently felt sad about not being able to walk out my front door in a big frilly ball gown! So to make myself feel better I put together a more modern, casual version of a princess outfit that you can wear out every day. The main princess parts of this outfit are the choker, the top and of course the extremely pretty and shiny bag! I feel like these three items come together really nicely because of the material; they're all quite shimmery and luxurious! I love the top enormously because of the flattering shape and the elegant neckline. For the rest of the outfit I chose more plain, casual pieces of clothing like the tennis skirt, the pink socks and the trainers. Now I'm going to go back to watching Cinderella!

I'm Gna Wear Designer And Forget Your Name

Whenever something Versace comes along I have to refer back to Lady Gaga's song Donatella, hence the title of this post. Listening to that song (and just about any other Lady G song) makes me feel fab just like these jeans do too. I love the colour of them, it draws a lot of attention and it's great to be able to spruce up a casual, black top with them. Usually I wear the ankles rolled up but for the first time I didn't and they actually look like cigarette trousers which I really loved. I've always thought that cigarette trousers wouldn't look right on me because of me being short, but I was proved wrong! The shoes from Public Desire definitely had something to do with this though, they really topped off the outfit and the detail of the laces is really one of the big features of this outfit.

Peach Emoji

The best way to start the day is to watch multiple videos of cute cats and dogs doing goofy things and that is exactly what I did this morning. I think I may have been procrastinating a little bit though so I'll have to leave the rest of the videos until after I tell you about this outfit! The main part of this outfit which I'm going to start with are the mom jeans in this lovely peachy orange colour. I've never been a fan of orange until seeing these jeans because the fact that they're pastel makes them a softer colour and more my style! They're from Rokit Vintage who have an amazing collection of clothes, most of which are one of a kind! I thought because the trousers are such a lovely colour that I'd match them with something plain like this white top (it's for 7-8 year olds and I remember having one when I was little!). There's a tiny pink bow on the neckline which unites with the pastel jeans in a subtle way. To top it off I wore my white platforms!

Fast Food By The Sea

While on holiday in Devon, me and Kayla found the prettiest pastel beach huts and I put this outfit together in my head as soon as I saw them. I thought they'd be perfect for photographing this outfit because of the matching pastel colours of the fast food on my top. They made for some really cute photos! The top has lots of tasty food on it like hot dogs and burgers (I'm imagining that they're made from a vegetarian meat substitute of course) but they kinda look like candy versions because of the light colours. I guess there's not much to say about a plain white skirt but I do love a good tennis skirt, I feel like they're really flattering for anyone. This one just so happens to be the perfect length too! I put some pastel purple fishnet tights and socks with the outfit and wore my jelly shoes to match (just in case my feet got wet in the sea).
