MONROE




 Monroe Jeans: Collectif (similar here
Trainers: Converse 
Belt: New Look
Tee: Nicky Rockets (similar here and here)


Check me out I'm wearing jeans!! After throwing all mine out after years of discomfort I bought the perfect jeans. I can't stand any thing other that high waisted bottoms now (they're just too uncomfortable) so after much searching Chris bought me these Monroe jeans from Collectif (a size smaller than my usual size if anyone is wondering about fit).

It's strange how much confidence a super high waist - that ACTUALLY are on my natural waist- these jeans have given me. I can't recommend them enough (to pretty much everyone I meet who emotions jeans). I have the occasional pocket malfunction (so jot used to making sure they're still inside not being used to pockets) but overall they're perfect. 

Never in my life have I worn straight legged jeans. Skinny jeans where my staple during my teenage punk years- I was so unsure of these,but I'm glad I've given them a go. They're nit everyone a cup of tea but they're comfortable, go with everything and I live the emphasis on my hips. Hello hourglass figure.

There's no way I can hide my massive absence any more. Things have massively engulfed me- and I feel it's all down to being organised. I've missed the blogging community so much that I've decided to sit down and properly plan blogging and university. Things will improve so thank you to everyone whose stuck with me these last few months.

TIGER TIGER




Cardigan: Voodoo Vixen (similar here and here)
Skirt: Daisy Street 
Belt: Primark
Headscarf: Thrifted

After clearing out NY wardrobe this weekend I uncovered this tiger pencil skirt and HAD to wear it. Other than when I'm at work, I seem to be living in pencil skirts at the moment- I'm almost starting to feel sorry for my full skirts and dresses. It's a bit shorter than my other skirts and I can't decide if that's a good thing or not. 

On a plus- after reading this post by Miss Victory Violet about pin up posing I've attempted to up my game- say hello to dramatic shoulder popping :) I wish the light was better in these photos as there where a few diamonds which wasn't too clear :( it's been overall very tricky re: outfit posts- uni wise is still super busy that the rare times I see Chris were too busy to take photos until it's getting dark- if anyone has night time photo tips please share :)

P.s. I promise I do wash this cardigan- I just love it so much I wear it as much as possible ;).

FEELING BLUE.




Skirt: River Island (similar here and here)
Cardigan: Voodoo Vixen
Vest and stockings: Primark
Loafers: Topshop
Glasses: London Retro
Snood: eBay

Despite being ill this weekend I think I scrubbed up nicely. There's something easy about wearing a pencil skirt- they're just so simple to pair with and less cumbersome than a full skirt and petticoat. Throw on a cardigan (like my favourite from Voodoo Vixen) and its an easy go to look. Plus back seem stockings! Seriously felt like a million dollars so was dragging myself out however sick I was. 

Feeling like my head was going to explode meant I had no effort to style my hair, so this weekend was the perfect time to try out my new snood- I can see this coming out a lot. It took me two minutes to style my bangs.
