A Spanish Touch

Top- H&M | Jeans- Monki | Bag- Zara | Shoes- SW

When I think of off the shoulder or bardot tops I immediately feel a hit of Spanish flare. I love that they're on trend because to me shoulders are the new cleavage: sexy yet sophisticated and perfect for this on off weather we've been having as of June!

This cropped off the shoulder top from H&M sits perfectly over my high waisted mum jeans and, if you didn't suspect from my previous post or my birthday outfit, I love these Stuart Weitzman wedges- neutral to go with everything and so comfy. Wedges take me just out of casual yet are still paired down and comfortable enough to strut around London. The swirled blue floral pattern on white mixes so well with my skin tone and I think worked great with my salmon pink Zara bag- you only want something small so as not to take away from the detailing and d├ęcolletage!

The tassels on my mini bag add to that fun and flirty sun style i was going for. Its a fresh take on a Spanish style, soaking in beautiful colour and yet still very wearable (even in soggy UK). A very versatile off the shoulder, In the future I'll be wearing it with a mid length white skirt with either heels or pumps, taking the outfit from ready-to-wear to event and lunch dates. I really enjoyed taking these shots, taking in the sun and wearing this outfit!

I hope you enjoyed this post x

Indoor Confidence: Staying Motivated When Blogging

Necklace- Topshop | Shirt(similar)- Bershka | Jeans- Topshop | Mules- Zara 

I really wanted to post this super simple style but two things happened: the weather wasn't great and to be honest i lost the confidence to shoot outside/shoot in general. This is something that happened on my long abandoned blog, if i stare at my pictures for too long a lot like if you say a word too many times it feels empty and meaningless.

I have to kick myself up the backside and say actually you knew exactly what you meant and how you felt when you styled this. It's a tailored, smart casual style- a real bit of me. It's put together in such an effortless fashion that we can all recreate. I've wanted a pair of mules since last year and pleased to see them picking up speed again. I know i surely am not the only blogger that finds themselves losing steam and confidence to blog but if it means going back to 2010 and posing in my bedroom or around the flat with just the natural lighting where i feel comfortable then that's just what i'll do but giving up this time is not an option.

Myself and perhaps yourself wants to show a creative side, use blogging as an outlet and there is always reason to why you decided 'this is what i want to write, this is what i want to wear and this is what i want to show!' so get comfy, go to mum and dad's back garden where no one is watching or do the opposite and pose in piccadilly circus (you'll have more than one camera on you that's for sure!) just remember why you wanted to do it in the first place: for yourself, for your readers, or to simply share.

I hope you enjoyed this post x
