❧ Red Velvet ❧

Poloneck: Mums
Fringe bag and boots: Topshop
Necklace: Waiste Vintage (similar here)
Turquoise floral ring: Vintage

This post title has got me thinking of cake, dammit. I was originally going to title it red valentine, as this pretty dress arrived on valentines day, it's red etc etc, but that was over a week ago and as I don't even celebrate it anyway, I much preferred a cake related title. I'm so ill at the moment I can't be eating any cake though, seriously who gets the flu in February? Oh me that's who. Boo.

I love the seventies print on this dress of course, even though I'm not brave enough to wear it without tights just yet, it does look great with them. I have started asking myself, is it too early to start getting my spring/summer wardrobe out from under the bed? Answer: Yes I don't want to peak too soon. So tempting though.

✵ Motel Rocks Shoot ✵

All clothing: Motel Rocks
Photography by: Ashleigh Amy Bell

A couple of weeks ago a did a fun little shoot dressing up in some pieces from the new Motel collection (very 70s inspired of course) and frolicked around in this crazy cool cocktail bar I never knew existed in Shoreditch and of course now I know can't remember the name of it. I love that about living in London though, so many hidden treasures waiting to be discovered.

✧ Label Love: Somedays Lovin ✧

In love with these gypsy style summery boho images from one of my Australian favourites Somedays Lovin. Looking at them has almost (but not quite) made me forget it was still winter outside. Also: definitely need that hat/whole outfit from the first image.

I'm feeling a little more inspired just by looking at them, winter doesn't last forever. Sometimes I have to keep telling myself that. Imagine living somewhere where it was sunny pretty much all year round? A girl can dream. They've made me (even more) excited for summer, holidays with my best friends, making plans, dreaming of hazy days. I've got so many things I want to achieve this year.  Only 28 more days until Spring...

✾ Forgetful ✾

Jacket: Waiste Vintage
White Top: MinkPink (old)
Necklaces: Nostalgic Feather
Flares: Free People

Just a quick one as I completely forgot about shooting this outfit in Bath from my birthday, I wore the jacket today and thought 'oh hey, I've kept this AMAZING jacket so to justify it, I really should blog about it...' then I realised I'd already shot it and totally forgot. Oops.

I've been so forgetful (stressed) this week I swear I'm losing my mind... I was also trying to be clever a couple of weeks ago and shoot a few outfits in a row so I could relax and blog them throughout the week, then I realised I'd worn the same flares in nearly all of them, whoops, oh well.

I'm more of a leave everything to the last minute and come up with brilliant ideas/outfits kind of a girl anyway. All my good ones either come to me late at night/in the shower/the night before I swear. I also can't be organised/plan ahead if I tried. And I really do try, I prefer spontaneity. Oh and plus I am a MASSIVE perfectionist.

Trying to justify my creative disorganised chaos that is my life here-is it working?

♡ In Love ♡

Navajo Knit: Zara Sale
Waistcoat: H&M
Top,Bag and Necklace: Waiste Vintage
Jeans: Dr Denim via ASOS
Boots: TBA

When I'm in love in love with something, I'll obsess over it, especially with items of clothing, I'll wear them over and over again until I'm sick of them. It's the same with anything else in my life, food, drink, inspiration, products, you name it, anything. I am starting to think I might have a slightly obsessive personality. So anyway, I've basically worn this top, cardigan,bag and boots so many times now in various combinations I've almost forgotten I own any other clothing.

Finding clothing that I really love, is surprisingly rare for me. I'm the kind of person who knows exactly what I want to buy in my head but then I can never find exactly, what I want- so I will then buy a slightly similar item as a substitute until I can find the right item but then it's not the same, it doesn't feel the same. So really I should just save my money, take the time to find and buy what I really want. If I had the time I'd make it all myself to be honest. But take these boots for example, I searched and searched and just when I was going to give up hope and buy a cheaper version, I found them. I wear them almost daily now and I'm so glad I splashed out on them. I love them. I feel like I'm babbling on now, when I all I really want to say is, I love my boots. And bag, and top. And cardigan. Simple really. So much love for this outfit.
