All we need is somebody to lean on

bralet - New Look
jeans and shoes - Primark
hat - Missguided
jacket - everythingfivepounds
tattoo - Stylemoi

Am I Rihanna yet? Seriously though, I cannot get enough of these tattoos that came with my Stylemoi order, managed to convince some strangers that this was real (how is it so sparkly??)

If only I was going to a festival so I could cover myself in them.

If you fancy getting your hands on some of these metallic beauties yourself, all you need to do is sign up to Stylemoi here and cover the minimum of $3.99 to join me in my temporary tattoo paradise.

While you're here, feel free to enter my mystery summer giveaway and you could win a Morgan bag full of summery treats..

Slow Down

crop - Dress Gal
jeans & shoes - Primark
coat - H&M via Depop
necklace - Front Row Shop

Have been wanting to add one of these Wang-esque crops to my collection ever since I set my eyes on them, so when Dress Gal kindly asked me to pick out some items this was top of my list. I was genuinely surprised with how good the quality of this is - the material is a lot more structured and comfortable than I imagined. The straps are also adjustable and the back is elasticated so if you're somewhat smaller in the chest department like myself, this is thankfully not an issue. 

About half of my friends have graduated (terrifyingly) so am booked in for a string of various social events, so am in need of more 'going out' attire. Feeling like I can't wear the same thing twice, ever but if everyone's on the cocktails will they even notice?

What would you pair this crop with?

Champagne Coast

playsuit - DressGal
shoes, necklace & sunglasses - Primark
bag - vintage

Totally feeling like I'm about to leave my little boutique hotel to head down to a tiny cafe and sip coffee and eat croissants on a sunny Parisian square. 

Unfortunately the English weather has provided us with rare interludes of sunshine, but in those rare interludes I can dream nonetheless (i.e. pain au chocolat for breakfast in the conservatory).

This playsuit has found a special place in my wardrobe, it's ridiculous how easy it is to throw on and dress up or down, ideal for lazy day summer wear. 

Now here's to praying for an actual summer.

I like shiny things

As well as being a major inspiration giver, instagram can often be a major lust risk. Lust in the form of outfits, hair, makeup, travel destinations and jewellery..

Jewellery in the form of Dylan Lex. Honestly I could scroll through that feed for days and still need to see more of it.

I just think it looks so badass. Like I could whip it off and use it as a weapon at any given moment. Unfortunately, given my ~impoverished student~ status, the price tag was sadly somewhat out of my league..

I was however determined to find something that had a similar vibe, so I could at least channel some sort of Dylan Lex inspired look.

top - WS Buying
jacket - Forever 21
jeans - She Inside
shoes - Primark
hat - Missguided
necklace - Aliexpress

Okay, I know I'm not quite meeting the Dylan Lex standards, but how pretty is this necklace? I feel like it could dress up a hospital gown.
I've also found some similar pretty pieces here and here, so if you're interested in statement jewellery, take a look :)

Not quite sure where I'm actually going to wear this ensemble just yet, just need to find a boy who owns a motorbike and/or is in a heavy rock band and plays lead guitar and I'll fit right in...

Would you wear a Dylan Lex piece?

brb just wearing this shirt and singing that Weezer song while I drink cocktails and celebrate that I've somehow made it to second year,
I promise proper posts will resume shortly but until then enjoy more monochrome and denim goodness.

What would you wear to Prom?

jumpsuit - Style Moi
necklace - Front Row Shop
heels - Primark

dress - Oh My Love c/o charity shop
choker - depop
heels - (as before)

dress - Missguided
necklace - ebay
heels - (as before)

Well, my prom seems decades ago, but since end of year balls/events are almost upon us, I thought I'd share three of my favourite looks for the formal season..

 This Style Moi jumper which I was very kindly sent, is the first one I've ever owned and it has not disappointed.. I love the idea of wearing a jumpsuit to a formal event as a change from the usual dresses etc, especially with the cut out detail. Had I been one of the "cool kids" in school, I definitely would have worn this.

 I was lucky enough to find this dress in a charity shop (the ones in Liverpool centre are yet to fail me) and despite the skater style being something I wouldn't usually opt for, I just could not resist that print!

 Classic and black, I'm pretty sure this failsafe choice is the one I shall be opting for this year. I love how I could go crazy with accessories or simply wear this silver choker and either would work perfectly.

Which one would you choose?
