Jeans- Asia, top- H&M, coat- M&S via charity shop, shoes- Dorothey Perkins, bag- next
Can I get a little round of applause for finally getting a proper post up for the first time in a while.
So about 2 months ago I made a move from one of the country right to the other. Reason being, well I was simply bored and fed up of living back home and needed a change. That's just the traveller In me. I am geographically placed just north of Liverpool. It takes me 40mins on the train to get into the city. I chose to came here cause it's where my dad and his side of the family live and I haven't been up here in about 5 years, plus it made the move kind of easy. In all the years of be coming up here as a child I've never actually been into Liverpool. However recently I've been making a few trips and I have to say that so far I really like what I see. I popped in to meet up with a friend from Australia who I hadn't seen since she left Brisbane around this time last year. That's one thing I love about travelling is when you meet back up in your home land. Nothing has really changed except well, we were in Liverpool not Brisbane. Another thing I like so far about the pool is how it's a big city but it's not huge and hectic like London. That place is just too big for me. I prefer smaller cities such as Brisbane and Toronto. They are just more friendly and there is more air to share. I was actually super surprised when a car stopped to let me cross the road in the middle of the Liverpool, I don't think that's even ever happened to me back home in Portsmouth which I hardly class as a city cause it's so tiny. Any way complete mindless ramblings, I'm really excited to get to properly get to know this city and the north west, and a new language or two, cause damn there is a few. Like a barm cake,anyone know what that is??? Nope, I didn't at first. It's a bread roll/ bap. See, completely different language.
I don't have a laptop up here with me cause mine died so I've entrusted my phone with the power of everything. Which is why all my outfit posts are just Instagram snaps and they are not very detailed. Hopefully i will be getting a Mac at the end of the months. I can't wait.
I want to try and get this blog and running a bit more with better quality posts and not just standing in the back garden with that horrible green fence that I had been using. I'm going to start coaxing people into taking some pictures for me, still on my phone as I'll have to make do for now. My dad is the main photographer at the moment, even though he kind of fails, but thanks for trying dad.
Finally a bit about the outfit. The day was one of those where it was cloudy at first but then the sun came out. I'm literally obsessed with these jeans I got in the Asos sale. They are so comfy and I love the length of them. I'm definitely going to be trying more Asos own brand style of jeans in the future. As for the T, good old fashioned white and oversized to keep things simple. Now this coat. Oh my life. I was on a charity shop mission. I wanted a black Mac/ trench coat to go along side my beige one and this was exactly what I had envisioned. It's also a really good quality brand. Good old Marks and Sparks, and good old British heart foundation. I find most of my bet charity shop finds in there. It's nice and light for the rainy England summers and will be perfect in autumn.
Right ramble over. See you guys in my next post, which will be up shortly after this one.

Top- Primark, jean shorts- next via charity shop
I couldn't resist this my little pony top. I love things from the 90s that remind me of my childhood
Play suit- H&M
I've been on the hunt for a perfect loose fitting black play suit and finally found one in the sale.
Jumpsuit- H&M, jacket- Tu at sainsburys
It was a really horrible day but I really wanted to wear this jumpsuit I got for £7 in the sale.

Keeping things simple on top. I think a denim jacket really is the best combination with palazzo pants, maxi skirts and all things similar.

Ever since blogging queen Rumi Neeley of fashion toast sported a shirt similar to this, but with the lace up detail on the back, several years ago I have been on the look out for one. Recently a few styles seems to have popped up on the sites like boohoo and misguided but they weren't tickling my fancy just right. Then I stumbled across this one from Publik who I follow on Instagram. It's so perfect with its lace up and the bell sleeves. The only thing putting me of is one the sizing, and the postage as it comes from the states. I don't want to really have to pay too much for customs. We'll just have to wait and see how much my love and desperate need for this shirt takes over me and I cave and say f**k it.

Jacket and trousers- Charity shop, Top- New look, Shoes- Converse
Two items of clothing that I am currently obsessed with are this new denim jacket and these high waisted trousers that I recently picked up from the charity shops. The trousers are my dream trousers. I've searched for so long for trousers like these that weren't going to break my bank. The best part is that the were only £1.50. I couldn't believe it, talk about meant to be. I love pairing tailored trousers like these down with converse and teaming the high waist with a good old crop top. I normally would have thrown my leather jacket over this combo but as I'm so addicted to denim at the moment, there really was no other option.

Another thing I've recently picked up is this jumpsuit from the H&M sale. I love jumpsuits and playsuits purely for their comfort and how they can be suitable for any occasion. This one, with its wide legs fits the 70s trend perfectly and is so light and airy. It was ideal for the garden party I wore it to. In terms of finishing pieces, obviously it had to be a denim jacket and chucks.

Keeping it simple to pop into town and then to the hair dressers. Again a leather jacket would have been my go too option but I just cant get enough of my denim jackets.

So here is a variation of the first outfit. This one has slightly more summer vibes with the light wash of the denim jacket and white crop top.

I absolutely adore this top with it double layer of sheer material. I wore it recently in a different outfit which, when I get around to it, picture will eventually be up of.

Another item I'm obsessed with is these next high waisted jeans. I am building myself quite the collection at the moment, in particular Levi's. If your looking for some to chop yo seriously check out your local charity shops, especially the mens sections.
