Jeans/shorts and tee is a combo I wouldn't usually have on the blog because, too me, I just find it a little boring. I wear cool oversized tee's like this one with skinny jeans on comfy/lazy days, and have done for a while now, so I don' really see it as anything special. Buuuuuuttttt, with a neck tie and chunky heeled shoes it's a whole different story. 

I haven't really been on the neck tie trend up until now. Apart from chokers I don't really wear jewellery, so a neck tie is another option to make an outfit a lil bit more interesting.

Hair Rings | 3 Ways To Wear



Last summer I was completely obsessed with hair wraps/braids, but this year I've found something slightly different to satisfy my hair decor needs... hair rings. I did think that this were a relatively new trend as I've been seeing them all over Instagram recently, but further research (Pinterest) has shown me that these have actually been a thing for quite a while - glad I've finally discovered them. They'll look so rad at festivals, although I do feel they'd all be lost by the end of the weekend....

I've only really seen them being worn in french/dutch braids, so I thought I would come up with a couple of different ways that they could be worn.

Space Buns

No braids here, I simply dotted the rings into the buns and throughout the surrounding hair!

Half Up Half Down Braids

This is a hairstyle I have been particularly loving at the moment - the classic half up ponytail, but with a couple of small braids each side to make everything a lil' more interesting. I added the hair rings to the biggest braids.

I couldn't not include it... this is how I've seen them being worn all over Pinterest and Instagram, and I love it! I made the braid a bit messier by pulling all of the sections in it.

A bit of a different look for me I feel, seeing as I never wear blazers, but I found this gem of a vintage beaut in a charity shop a while back and it has not seen much of the outside world since. I really like the contrast between tailored and casual, so I paired the blazer with a simple roll neck bodycon, and my staple of recent times, some trainers.

So on the hottest day of the year so far (I luv u 8th May 2k16) I decided to go all out festival fashion and bring back a lil' bit of boho. Admittedly, I would not wear these boots to a fest cos (a) comfyness levels have total priority over these babies, and (b) these deffo aren't up to the challenge of a muddy field. So I'd be trading in for either trainers or docs, depending on how the weather's feeling that day.

The 70's/hippie-esqe trend is one that I'm so glad is sticking around for another summer. I think this playsuit showcases it well with the bell sleeves (still obsessed) and paisley print.

I am also loving the whole low/plunge neckline and harness bra combo. I think that a harness bra can give so much more edge to an outfit, especially paired with a choker like this super thick one from Boohoo - and I'm alllll about that edge.

Also, can we all just take a moment to appreciate that hair rings are a thing???? I keep seeing them on Instagram and Pinterest and I just couldn't help myself, THEY'RE SO COOL. I got mine quite cheaply off of eBay (£2 I think???) to give them a try out, but I think I'm going to invest some with little charms on them - I just need to hunt down somewhere that sells them first!

Can I just say, I was absolutely freezing while taking these photos, but it don't matter COS IT'S SO HOT now. So this outfit is relevant. Woop. I've been waiting for the day I could go outside wearing a coat and actually be too hot rather than too cold. That's always a good day for me, because I'm not a massive fan of coats. I find them more of an annoyance more than anything else. Let's not hope England leads us into false pretences with the heat and decides to go back to Arctic conditions next week...

I picked these dungarees up from Topshop not to long ago, and I can see them getting worn to death over the summer months. They're so easy to just throw on with an old tee and pair of trainers, like I've done here, to give an easy & laid-back look. Dungarees are soooo 90s (can we all just take a moment to appreciate 90s fashion), but the distressing on the front pocket and shorts adds a lil bit of grunge into the mix, which I just lurrvvv.

I also kinda want to find some cool badges to put onto them, but I've got fear of ruining them... Undecided on that one.

I can't work out if these are shorts or culottes.... in their d├ębut post I thought they were culottes, but now I'm not too sure because they're not quite long enough. Maybe a hybrid? Short culottes?

Either way, I'm all over the print clash they have with this *mandala halter I picked up from Wear All. I've been wanting another tie up, mandala-esqe, halter top ever since I got my paws on this Missguided one. The prob with the one from Missguided is that the cheap white material was obvs gonna be see-through, and bra's are a bit of a no-go with the tie up back. Issues. I really wanted a black one cos there ain't gonna be any 'see-a-bit-too-much-through' awks situations. Plus, this baby has a bit of  back, so the dreaded strapless bra is an option - although I'll probably still go braless, because who wants to be pulling up a bra that won't stay in place for five mins? Nah thanks.
