Dressy Casual

Blazer: Forever 21, Blue Tee: Primark, Necklace: Forever 21,  Jeans: Topshop, Heels: New Look
Hiya guys, I have been away for a while doing educational things but I thought to come and show you this outfit I'm wearing on my trip to London for my housemates birthday.
We're spending the whole weekend in London doing sight seeing, shopping and hopefully making a visit to TGI Fridays. I'm geared for it being a bit expensive but I think it should be worth it considering how I pretty much never venture that far south during term time. I wanted to keep this outfit fairly simple but give it a little flair to make it interesting and I think the blazer made it work.
What are you plans for the weekend?

Liebster Blogger Award


   
I got nominated for the Liebster Award by Maggie Pegg the other week and I'm finally getting round to making a post about it. Massive thanks for the nomination of my humble little blog :)
So the basics; the award is basically meant to promote new bloggers with less than 200 followers and you are to follow the rules of those who have nominated you.

I think I have it easy by only having one question to answer, which is:

How/What made you start blogging and how has it been so far?
I think, I have always had an interest in writing things down, even when I was younger before I discovered the internet I would always make drawings and write in a journal of sorts. I have had many blogs before this one on different topics, but at some point my interest in fashion took priority and I have been trying to document my interest since. 
It's a little nerve wrecking to put up just my regular pictures when so many blogs are so established and professional looking and all I have is my point & shoot camera. But hey ho it is what it is and I have enjoyed it so far. It's always a challenge when I decide what to wear. Setting up my camera and timer to take the pictures was always awkward and still is but to a lesser degree because I'm starting to feel more comfortable and confident enough in my abilities to be able to enjoy myself, and I can;t wait to see what the future brings :) 

Now my questions:
 If you had to pick one who is your favourite youtuber?
One wardrobe essential you cannot live without?
Skirts or Trousers?
And lastly what is your experience of blogging so far?

I tag:

The Rules
1) Answer the questions I've set
2) Nominate other bloggers of your choice with less than 200 followers
3) Link back to this post if you answer the questions and comment on this post as well

I look forward to reading your posts guys :)

Nautical Season

Blazer: H&M, Ruffle Shirt: Primark, Skater Skirt: River Island, Boots: New Look
 Hello there,
Just thought to show what I wore to the first day of lectures the other day. I looked outside before I dresses and it looked deceivingly springy so I wore my new little skirt from the Christmas sales. It's my new favourite thing, I love the subtlety of the animal print; not the overly garish multicoloured kind, though I love that one too. I paired it with this little vest top with a dressy ruffle on the front for a smarter look. In a certain light it sort of looks one of those shirts you wear nerds always pair with a suit for prom, despite this I think its charming.

My decision for the springy look did backfire a tad because on the way back we got rained on, and I wished I'd gone for my safe option: jeans and boots. Anyway I think it worked out well and it got me excited for actual spring. In anticipation for this I have also joined the gym like the little exercise buff I am. Matter of fact it's where I'm off to after I click publish.

Any plans today?
