Nautical Vibes

I'd say for a lot of people, stripes are definitely a must-have in our wardrobes, whether it is black&white, navy&cream or red&navy combo that you prefer. For me, I'm absolutely loving navy and cream stripes at the moment. Especially coming into Spring, I love how they look when paired with a coloured lip and gold jewellery for a little extra bit of colour and detail.

What I love most about stripes is definitely the versatility - you can really go all out with the stripes for a statement look, or use stripes to add subtle detail to a simple outfit. I purchased the navy and grey(ish) kimono that I'm wearing in the image below from H&M a few weeks ago, for very little £££ of course. It is quite oversized on me, so I cinched it in at the waist with a skinny brown belt and added a pop of mustard with my Topshop cami, a denim ASOS skirt and a gold statement necklace to tie it all together. Outfit complete. I'm really loving wearing statement pieces like this recently.. they're so easy to throw on in the morning, and you always look like you've spent more time on your outfit than you actually have! *wink wink*

Style: A Step Into Spring

By the middle of January, the icy weather is definitely a bit played out. I used to be a person who loved winter and all that came with it, but this year I can't wait for the better weather and brighter days - any bloggers will understand the frustration of having at most a two hour  mid-day slot to take product/outfit photos due to the lack of sunlight.. there's no doubt that I'm ready to wave goodbye to winter. 

Over the past week or two, the high street stores have been bringing in new spring pieces and I'm over the moon to finally see the lighter colours come, and the chunky knits go! It's like I've been anticipating the spring all throughout November/December, so once Christmas had passed I felt that it was finally acceptable to wear my pastel pink MK bag that hadn't seen much light over the past few months. 

Of course I was absolutely freezing and had to add a white coat in the end.. which isn't the best option when you're going for a steak and red wine sauce, but at least it was an escape from the dark hues. My kimono is from last year's H&M spring line, pink cami is Topshop (available in light pastel pink), jeans are Topshop Joni's and my boots are quite a few years old, but from New Look!

90's Inspired Fashion

''You've got holes in your jeans, you know'' - I've heard it at least ten times coming from (a) the older generation, or (b) somebody with absolutely no clue about fashion. *eye rolls* 

Although you may not consider this the 'grungy' look, it is actually quite different for me as it isn't something I'd typically put together. I'm usually the one wearing light colours and pink lipstick. Recently, though, I've been really inspired by the whole 90's trend that I've been seeing everywhere lately. Not saying that I can see myself in a pair of Doc Marten's anytime soon (that would be a bit extreme for me), but with signature 90's fashion trends like berry lips and leather biker jackets coming back, I've been tempted to give it a go myself. 

I'm always fascinated to see fashion trends from decades ago come back into style. I found it hilarious when everybody began wearing the choker necklaces that we all ran about with years ago. I just hope 'mood rings' don't come back. *cringe*
 It shows that you really shouldn't dump clothes just because the 'trend' has been and gone, it will come back in style sooner or later!90s ripped jeans trend
