Tinned Bananas bodysuit
silk trousers from a charity shop
Gap denim jacket
River Island straw hat (on a ribbon around my neck)
mother's belt
McQ shoes

So these trousers... they fit perfectly and what a coincidence I found them since I purchased several metres of raw silk not too long ago and was thinking of making some for myself... Ok yeah, the big deal here is that I bleached my hair. I'm finally (about 7 years later!) going white! Hopefully. This multicoloured yellow/orange is but a stop on the way and it was kind of accidental... but I quite like it to be honest. And it's super amusing when my friends don't recognise me on the street. :)

Illustrated People crop top

YRU shoes
lei from Hawaii
vintage sunglasses
Sekonda watch
earrings from China

Came across these photos from summer that I never posted... Yet another reason to visit California is the architecture. While I'm not a big fan of modernism in architecture (boring glass and straight lines), I love mission-style buildings. I hate everything missions stood for and how they "converted" native people, but damn, did they have some fine arches. These photos were taken in the courtyard of the San Diego de Alcalá Mission. Also, blue eyeliner is my new standard make-up - so simple yet so unexpected. :)

Sadie Williams x & Other Stories dress
vintage sunglasses and denim jacket
gifted earrings
Topshop boots

Managed to catch the very last of the golden hour after dinner in Chinatown. I bought this as my Christmas dress but was so ill over Christmas that I didn't manage to take any photos. So here, only a few months late… :)

Meadham Kirchhoff x Topshop skirt
Matisse tshirt from Amsterdam
Ashley Williams scarf
vintage jacket
Asos tights
New Balance trainers
Pandora bracelet

I wear this skirt rarely because I find it really hard to pair with jackets… But now I have the perfect combination with this vintage jacket! Also this corner of scarf is the perfect size to tie around my neck and I'm not kidding when I say it goes with practically every thing I own. I dare to say it may even be becoming my signature look… must go on a hunt for more tiny silk scarves (slash cut some up…). :)

dress made by me
old denim jacket pimped out by me
gifted plastic rings
Pandora bracelet
New Balance trainers

It was my birthday a couple of days ago and this is what I wore to turn the big 2-0! It's a little hard to feel depressed about getting older when you're dressed like a Tumblr 5 year old on acid… in a denim jacket you've had since you were a kid. And obviously also the dress I made for my print project. It's actually really comfortable and super fun to twirl around in as the front polka dot inserts flare out beautifully (which is nice because that's what I was hoping for when I designed it). :)

I'm currently back in Manchester for a week and it's so weird, coming back and seeing how much has changed since I moved to uni in September. I also very hurriedly packed a random assortment of clothes so the next few days may be interesting… :)

vintage coat and sunglasses
Urban Outfitters jumper

A little mountain air never did no harm. I bought this coat a few weeks ago when I went home and basically lived in it ever since. It's fabulous, semi-ridiculous and converts literally anything into a winter-appropriate outfit. :)
