I've been discovering such mad blog photo locations in Portsmouth recently, I've always wanted a colourful beach house backdrop. I'm not gonna lie, I didn't even know there were any beach houses in Portsmouth until last weekend when I made my discovery. I've realised as well, even though I lived there for 3 years, I did basically no exploration. How boring of me. I think I thought that the studenty centre bit where I lived was the only good place to be, and never bothered to venture out much further. Little did I know there were beach houses waiting for me. 

I think as well because I really want to step up the game when it comes to my outfit photos this year, so it's made me want to go and find radical backdrops.

Anyway's, got the double Adidas going on here. I've been loving the whole 'sport luxe' look recently. Ok, I don't even know what the hell that means, I just like wearing Adidas. The jacket is a fave, I find it for a bargain price on Depop for £11 - crazy! Beats paying £52 for I brand new one - yes Topshop, I'm looking at you. I've also wanted a beanie for absolutely ages, and with my recent Adidas obsession, it seemed an Adidas beanie was the way to go...

Retro Beach

Shirt - Vintage

Casual beach outfit right here. I definitely froze taking these photos though. It all looks so pretty and sunny and the perfect day to chill in front of the sea - so very deceiving. The wind was a bitch!

Vintage shirts are one of my fave wardrobe staples. They're comfy and so easy to style - even just tucked into a pair of retro looking girlfriend jeans gives such a laid-back and effortless cool look.

Beautiful skirt, I know. I actually wanted to buy this months ago when it first made it's appearance in Topshop, but I was jobless and couldn't justify spending £32 on a skirt - it hurt. I completely forgot about it until last week when I saw two left on the rail, luckily both my size - I think it was fate. I pretty much paired it with all black, because the skirt is so bold it kind of makes the outfit by itself.

These pictures were a bit of a mission to take, literally every time we left the house it started raining. The weather was against me, I swear. We ended up going down to the old pier because there's a bit that's sheltered, and look how cute that wall is! Perfect back drop for outfit photos - the bloggers fave white wall, with added pastel bits.

Sunshine Yellow

This may be my new favourite spot for taking outfit photos, so expect a lot a bright yellow in my blog posts over the next few months. As benches go, this is a pretty cute bench, I love how bright a retro looking it is.

Anyway, enough bench talk, very casual outfit today. I think my attempts to make it a little more interesting with the fishnets worked, however my legs did suffer the cold. At least the top half was cosy in my new jumper, which may be my fave sale buy. I am so fussy with jumpers recently - none seem to be worthy enough for me to part with my money. A couple of years back I basically bought every jumper in sight, so you can see how times have changed. I couldn't resist the high neck, chunky and oversized goodness of this one though.

INSTA WEEK #51


Why does the weekend go so quickly!!! 

I have so much saving motivation at the moment. I plan on putting most of my pay each month into my savings, and just keeping what  I absolutely need to spend, like travel, gym and phone bill. It's just soooo hard when there are so many clothes and other random shit that I don't need but want to buy. I need more money.

Did you know the absolute minimum a person needs to live off of in England is £8.25 an hour (estimated by the Living Wage Foundation), so why da fuck is minimum wage at £6.70??? Does anyone else agree? I really hate this country, I can't wait until I can afford to move to somewhere better. Possibly Canada? Could I deal with the cold though, this is the question.

Bit of a ranty one this week, soz. In much more exciting news, I'm going to Bugged Out Weekender next weekend! So excited - anyone else going?

Meshed Up

Coat - Vintage
Heart Choker - Empty Casket

Soz, same coat as in the last outfit post, but who cares when it has this much sass? And the perfect level of cosiness to keep practically bare skin warm when wearing mesh t-shirts. Yep, a mesh tee was definitely not the correct choice of attire in these cold temperatures, but I needed to show off my new CK bra okay? This makes it acceptable. Also, I'm thinking that this winter hasn't been that cold in comparison to others. Please don't get colder. I would like to carry on wearing mesh tops. 

My mum bought me the bra and knicker set, and I luv it. I've gotta say, I'm not sold on the classic CK bralette things, but this triangle one makes me go heart eyed. She also bought me this pair of Cheap Monday jeans, which can I just say, are SO comfy and they are like the perfect fit - so flattering. I feel like these pictures don't really do justice to just how flattering they are. 

Also the pictures, really not liking the lighting. I really like them apart from the fact that the lighting is all wrong and they are way to bright. I think I may save up and buy another camera, and probably spend some time learning how to use it.

Faux Fur & Fishnets

Faux Fur Coat - Vintage
Tee - Stolen From The BF
Skirt - Charity Shop
Shoes - Primark (Old)
Fishnet Tights - Primark

Isn't the weather really warm for December? I wasn't even a teeny bit cold in fishnets and I definitely ain't complaining - this girls hates the cold. I've gotten back into wearing fishnets recently, definitely not the warmest of tights options, but they have all the sass. I always buy them from Primark because they are cheap and I buy all my tights from Primark (who doesn't?), but I want some with really big holes in, and just my luck Primark never seem to have any. I know Topshop have some at the moment, but I am one of these people that manages to rip holes in my tights after the first wear, so I feel like I'm just gonna be wasting £8.50 - extortionate price for a pair of holey tights, I know.

I think I've mentioned before on my blog, but I love blue and camel/tan together, so I was well happy when I rediscovered and dug out this blue bandana. I don't wear bandana's too often, but they do give some rad retro vibes to an outfit - gotta love that.
