Running a fashion blog can often require you to be daring, bold and attention-grabbing. And in a bid to stand out on social media, sometimes the most garish outfits are deliberately chosen to lure in those new followers.
After six months of blogging, I’m keen to rewrite my own fashion rules (thank you InTheFrow!). I want to recreate my own style, and not get lost in the world of accepting every gifted or sponsored outfit that comes my way.
The prospect of redefining my style really excites me, and I hope you enjoy coming on this new journey with me.
Before I started blogging again, I wrote down three values that were most important to me – self-love, authenticity and creativity. I chose these because in a world of validation (especially online) we can sometimes lose ourselves and forget the reason we started blogging.
When it comes to styling and fashion choices, it sometimes feels like we need to be dripping in designer gear to be classed as ‘attractive’ or ‘aspirational’. And this can cause extreme pressure on young people (and their parents) to spend money they simply don’t have.
*Quick disclaimer* I do not endorse over-spending and excessive consumption. HOWEVER, if you were going to buy something anyway, Black Friday is the perfect opportunity to save on that hard-earned dollar.
With this in mind, here are a few of the Black Friday deals I’ll be keeping an eye out for…
Soft tones mixed with effortless styling – yes, we’re talking all things neutral!
In my last outfit post I showed you my go-to autumn look: leather shorts and a polo neck jumper. Today, I wanted to demonstrate how adding just one layer can transform that same look completely.
Described as ‘wearable art’, the Richard Allan collaboration with H&M is a collection not to be missed.
It’s no secret that I like to keep busy. Whether I’m managing multiple projects at work, studying for my Masters degree or dashing around on photoshoots – I’m always on the go!
Get ready for pumpkin spiced lattes, crisp mornings and bobble hats – autumn is on its way! But before you completely transition into an autumn wardrobe, now’s the time to experiment with lightweight layers.
One of the main reasons I started blogging again was to share honest reviews. It’s tempting just to say everything is great, in fear of offending brands. But most of them really value an honest opinion – plus, I’d hate the thought of someone wasting their money!
So everything I share in this video has been handpicked as a genuine favourite. I really hope it gives you some inspiration, and if it does encourage you to try something new, I hope you enjoy using it as much as I do!
When I say jungle, I mean concrete jungle, as we captured these shots in Birmingham city centre. But who doesn’t love a bit of improvisation!
Animal print is everywhere right now, so whether you wear it as a maxi skirt, scarf or top – it’s the go-to trend this season. Style with block colours, or denim, to let your prints do the talking.
