Castiel


Coat- TU at Sainsburys, Jeans- Primark, Shoes- Converse, Sunglasses- Primark, Bag- really really old new look

I'm a big fan of supernatural and have always admired and lusted after Castiels trench coat. I also wanted to get my hands on a light summer coat for those always predictable rainy English summer days. This one popped up in the TU sale, was the only one and in my size. Its was also cheaper and better quality than ones that have recently been in Primark that I've been eyeing up. This was a pretty lucky and meant to be find I think.

Take me into space so I can float amongst the stars and swim through nebulas into different galaxies. If SG1 aka stargate is real, I am ready to sign up and be thrown into action in a fraction of a heart beat.

Maxed


Jacket- George at ASDA, Skirt- Boohoo, T- dotti via charity shop, Shoes- Converse, Sunglasses- Primark

I wore this outfit for a family dinner to celebrate my uncle and cousins birthdays. My main aim was comfort while still looking slightly dressed up. I feel that a maxi skirt is an item of clothing that every one should have in their wardrobe to achieve this. A staple is plain black but bold prints also look amazing and add more drama and focal point. I used to have a snake print one a few years back that I got in a charity shop and I lived in it that summer.  

Maxi skirts a soooooo comfy and also easy to  transition from day to night and summer to winter. This one has buttons up the front which unfortunately you can't undo but its a nice simple detail that has me feeling like I'm teen right out of the nineties. I paired it simply with a white T and added a summery pop of colour with my pastel blue leather jacket which I am obsessed with. To keep things on the comfort level I went with good old chucks that are always kept by the front door ready to chuck on when rushing out the door as they just go with pretty much any thing. Also please don't judge me by my socks.

Im joining the Army !!!!!! ..........

 

Coat- Charity shop, Jumper - charity shop, Jeans- Primark, Shoes- Primark, Bag- Next

A couple of weeks ago I went to a family day at my brothers army air corps base. Its was pretty fun, mainly because I got to play with big guns. You could also put on the back pack full of all their gear that they have to carry around when in the field. Its weighs around 20kg plus and all the guys were insistent on helping me with it but I was like guys, please, I back packed in Australia and ..... I lift, I'm ashamed to admit that I've been lagging in the crossfit in recent month though.

My lil broski joined last year whilst I was away and I missed his passing out parade and other family days so it was good to finally support him and all the other boys in person. I've always said to myself if all my career plans fail I will enlist, I think you have till about 32. After running around with guns and the pack and hearing all the surprisingly fun things the boys have been up too I think I could actually handle it. I think I should start as reserve first to test the waters????

When taking these pictures my main aim was to focus on showing the contrast between the soldiers and civilians. My favourite has too be this girl who gets massive brave points for wearing head to toe nude/ beige and heels on a wet day at an army base.

Alexander Wang Fall 2015 runway show



This whole collection is amazzzzzzing. I would probably do anything to get a seat at an Alex Wang show. They always have such a captivating vibe and he always choices the best music. Most of the time, especially this show, I feel like I'm in a matrix style club with all the industrial electro beats.

Let me know what you guys think. Also check out this post I did not too long ago to see how you can get an outfit just like some of the ones from this show on the cheap.

Big purple

 
Jumper- H&M, Jeans- Primark, Shoes- Converse
 
I fell in love with jumper when I first got back from Australia about 3 months ago but was so put off by the price of £40. Its a good thing I put off buying it as I walked into H&M yesterday and picked it up for £7 in the sale. HEEEELL YEEAAAAAH. The temperature is starting to rise here in South England, however I still don't think its quite shorts and t-shirt weather just yet folks. The amount of people in my town that are already wearing full on summer gear is incredible. There was quite a chilly wind today so this monster of a jumper paired simply with jeans and chucks was the perfect wind breaker.
