fashion faves

I've had a pretty great week, nothing special but busy, I've felt positive and stable. I'm embarking on a new therapy process (guided by myself) which involves 'not wallowing'. I used to be good at this but over A-Levels I found comfort in the stress. It became me. I've decided to push on through these feelings, see how it works.
Anyway, the glory of working means I have dolla to spend and, whilst much of this is going into savings (for what, I'm yet to figure–perhaps so if, in 5 months someone appears and invites me to travel the world, I have the means at my disposal) and other dull things, I have been exploring some new fashion options.

(I've also kind of forgotten how you write these fashiony–hauly posts–bare with)

When I was in Sheffield I came across some ace vintage items at superrr cheap prices and have been living in them. This sweatshirt is my fave. Its navy (fab), a sweatshirt (fab) and cropped (fab), it ticks all my boxes. It's even encouraged me to wear my mom jeans, which I previously hated. The shirt I also found in Sheff, and proceeded to wear that night. I also usually hate shirts (I'm not a fan of oversized clothing bc I'm small and frankly it drowns me) but enjoyed the aesthetic of this over a cami for a night out. Plus, it added a little warmth.


This jacket is the one thing I've been wanting to talk about, endlessly. I am obsessed. It too is oversized (!) but I think it looks ok (?) and I enjoy that it works as a house coat (lol)/fancy jacket. Its v warm (an essential) and isn't navy, which is a bonus as every jacket I own falls into that category. It was hideously expensive but, as I mentioned in a post many moons ago, it was my post-HAT treat and well, it was worth every penny.

Other fashion faves include my nike trainers (view here), not because they offer much stylistic value but because they are so fuckin comfy (but, note to self, get trashed on a night out). I've also loved my piercings–I got 2 new additions in the past few months and, once these have healed, will certainly be returning for more. I love how earrings can jazz anything up and they allow me to challenge my 'sensible' preconception (which falls into the idiocy of beauty standards–how can piercings make you look less sensible? but its true, and gurl is writing a post on this soon). Oh, I almost forgot, my love for long sleeves. I am living in and loving wearing long sleeve tops under t-shirts, allowing me to drag out the use of my beloved stripes for a little longer. Not only does it keep me warm but it also adds a lil touch, and I'm also loving a good turtle neck, under both sweatshirts and items such as the above. As my mum has repeatedly reminded me, "having your neck covered really does keep you so much warmer". Thanks mum.

SO yeah, just a few of the items I'm lavin.
I'm feeling the anxiety-inducing nature of friday evenings return, nostalgic for school and the past, which makes me frustrated that I still miss school, despite having left over 4 months ago. As my mum, therapist (for 1 session lol) and grandma said, I think I'm going through a kind of grief, which sounds oh so ridiculous but, when you invest SO much into a life event, is totally common and understandable, and will pass with time. Okay yeah so this is so ironic when considering the introduction of this post but its to remind myself of how I was a feeling. Both happy and sad, thanks Stephen Chbosky.

But really, I've got some exciting things coming up (woo) and life is good. And, understand that if you happen to see me within the next 2 months, I will undoubtedly be wearing at least 2 of the mentioned items.
Have great weekends kids.

  2. I'm completely obsessed with the way you edited these photos, please teach me haha! That jacket isn't usually what I'd go for (I'm more into massive shapeless coats) but wow, it looks like a transportable duvet <3__<3 I always wear a navy turtle neck under sweaters and tops, I got mine super cheap and I wear it almost every day...people probably think I don't have any other clothes. I've been meaning to get my cartilage piercing done for the longest time ever but I've just procrastinated it because I don't want to have to deal with cleaning it and keloids and other gross things. I may get my nose pierced after sixth form though ;)

    pls do more of these posts!

  6. Firstly all these outfits are such looks I am obsessed with that jacket!! Also love these pics and the way you've edited them. I'm a big fan of long sleeve tops underneath things but all my stripes tops (I say all but I own one) is too baggy to wear as an underneath thing. Also I feel you about Friday night nostalgia omg I was literally like thinking about it the other day because I was planning on going to the gym Friday then thought oh no what if I get invited out- which isn't going to happen!
