23.5.15 Folk Inspired Prints

folk inspired topfolk inspired outfit on fashion blog

With the Seventies trend coming back around in a big way for this season, don't be surprised if you see a number of folk inspired prints and clothing styles knocking about the high street and online. Today I am wearing a floral folk embroidered print blouse from Apricot Online.

To ease myself into the folk trend I kept myself feeling comfortable in my reliable Stan Smiths, but if you wanted to go for all out folk I would pair with Birkenstocks or a pair of ankle boots for full on folk fever.

20.5.15 Triple Denim & Lace Up Flats

At the moment I am practically living in denim. From my staple choice of daily legwear to wear to the office and for casual dates and evenings out at the weekend. Probably around 90% of my outfits currently incorporate denim in some way, shape or form.

So, why not go all out and dress head to toe in my favourite denim pieces?!

Paired with my favourite denim pieces from Boden and some serious killer Thea girlfriend jeans that I picked up in the ASOS sale for £19, is boho inspired natural mini leather backpack from Scaramanga, who recently asked if I would like to be one of their brand ambassadors - meaning I get to share with you a number of ways to style their lovely leather bag styles.

What are your thoughts on double or triple denim?

I don't think you should be afraid to throw on your favourite denim pieces together as you can go as denim mad as you like this Summer with the new season trends!

18.5.15 Summer Style & New Beginnings

I have been finding myself in a bit of a style rut recently, with the want of appearing more feminine without feeling uncomfortable in what I am wearing. What better time to transform my style than in time for the new Summer season, which I am also welcoming with a new hair style too!

The other weekend I ventured to Vidal Sassoon in Manchester, where my hair was transformed by the lovely Helen (colour) and Mel (cut) from a harsh dip dye line to a more natural baylage look. Taking my bob down from my natural dark blonde roots to minx blonde ends. I love how this has subtly changed the colour of my hair, without making a drastic change, to what I think looks like a more 'expensive' style.

I have to say, it is a novelty to enjoy the colour of my hair, so I am running with it...

One company taking advantage of the opportunity to transform for Summer is Co-operative Travel Management, who recently re-launched as Clarity Travel Management. They kindly challenged me to also re-brand myself for the new season ahead. So, armed with a £50 shopping voucher in tow, I found myself spending it all on these two lush knitted pieces from River Island, in a bid to incorporate more skirts and 'girly' styles into my new Summer wardrobe. 

This beautiful ribbed pencil skirt from River Island is a length of skirt that I would not normally go for, but I actually really like it on me. Paired with denim and my new shoe obsession of lace up flats I feel feminine yet still a bit 'edgey' in this outfit, which I think still encapsulates my personal style and hasn't lost my personality in this new look.

What do you guys think of this new style and has anyone else been feeling in a style rut recently?
