Hello, I thought I'd share with you my 'wants and recent buys'.
As the weather is still cold (and we're in england) I'm not quite ready to move away from my winter wardrobe yet, but I have been thinking about spring. So here are my recent thoughts/finds.

1. I've decided that I want to move away from florals, as they are seen in spring/summer over and over each year, and I don't tend to do prints. 

2. I'm looking for pastel and ivory pieces in different fabrics and textures that I can easy mix and match with hard masculine pieces. I think I may start by hunting down a vintage pair of highwaisted shorts in a pastel, that are slightly trashed.

3. I brought a range of items from yesterday. A sequin front tee, with ivory chiffon back (I was tempted by the black back, but I was thinking ahead for spring) the ivory will give the top a light feel. I also brought a lightweight cotton jacket that i'd been eyeing up for ages, as soon as it went into the sale I had to get it! Originally I was going to go for the mink colour, but again, I chose ivory to attempt to move away from my black wardrobe. However.. I did purchase a black chiffon oversized shirt, I plan to wear as a dress. (I cant help it I love black. Especially black chiffon shirts!)

4. Some PU platform boots. I've wanted some for ages, they were in the sale. Thats my reasoning! However, i've been searching ebay for some hightop converse to take me into spring.

5. And of course, at some point I will have a pair of black ray bans. And you've all seen my new bag.

Once I get my order through the post, ill take some pics. I'd love to see what everyone thinks of my new buys! 
What would you pair these items with for spring?

Decided to go on a trip to Bournemouth today. Was so cold. Went to the beach, town, aquarium, amusements (where my boyfriend won me a Shaun the sheep!) and for food.
Here's what I wore. Hope everyone had a nice weekend!

Ear cuff

I brought this ear cuff from miss selfridge today as I've wanted a silver one for a while. However I didn't like the diamanté link on it and felt two of the chain links was too long and four chains was just too much..
I removed the longest and diamanté link and shortened the black link. There you have it. My ear cuff!

Night Out

Afternoon! Taking a break from my dissertation (and i'm a tad hungover) as I went out last night, heres my outfit. I went shopping as well yesterday (big mistake) as I have little money as I'm going to PARIS in Feb! SO EXCITED! But I fond this playsuit and necklace in Topshop, along with some other buys I will share in another post. (apologies for the awkwardness of the second photo)

Nut Cracker

Hello. Back at uni now with loads of work to do. The usual! Here's the outfit that I wore to the Nutcracker Ballet on the 29th of december. I've never been to the ballet before (im not going to lie I thought I was going to be bored) but it was the modern rendition and I loved it.
This dress I picked out as one of my xmas presents from my boyfriend, along with the shoes. Both are great versatile pieces you can mix and match, dress up or down. I rarely wear my hair up, but i'm always up for a change.

Winter Haze

Hey, just a quick outfit post of what I wore today. Fringe bag was one of my xmas prezzies, was looking for one for ages, purple being key as I wear a lot of black out, an oversized clutch is a great way to bring colour to an evening outfit.
Happy New Year if I haven't said it already :)

Dark Moon

Today I was out taking photos on what is pretty much a building site so I didnt go for anything too glamorous, infact, i'm not quite sure why im posting this outfit. I will however, show you some of the photos I took today in another post. 
I was location hunting for my next photoshoot and my boyfriend has just brought a run down victorian house, so this was the perfect place for my 'ghost' themed shoot. Below is me experimenting with photoshop and exposure times, of some effects I want to use for the final photos.
Location photos to be posted soon. But for now heres my 'slobby comfortable photographing outfit'

Hello everyone!

I've mentioned before that I am starting a magazine for my final major project at uni. I have started a blog with my magazine partner Nia Baldwin, of which we place any inspiration we may use for the magazine and to keep up to date with one another. It'd be fanstatic if you could follow us and give comments or any ideas you may have! Below is a mock up of a front cover we had to do for our proposal.

So take a look and tell us what you think!
