Transitioning from Summer to Fall with Bold Prints

Here are a few outfits that I really love, all featuring an awesome printed piece (or two). I am very much in a style rut at the moment so I thought a bit of inspiration might help! I'm off to Leeds Festival tomorrow and I'm looking forward to planning an outfit around some bold prints. I've had a migraine past couple days but it's eased off today so hopefully it will be gone by tomorrow!

Affordable Homeware Haul - Copper & Scandi Style


Scandi Nest of 2 Tables £49 (20% off for new customers)

I'm not even sure if I know how to blog anymore... so I thought I'd go back to the beginning and post a list of things I've been buying lately. And of course it's homeware related being that we moved into our first owned home this year. 

First up are the lamp and pendant shade. I bought these for our bedroom and I really rate them. I am really into copper and love the interesting geometric design. I hope that this is a look that will age well and not feel outdated in a couple of years. 

Next up is the nest of tables. I bought these for our living room, or should I say snug because it is on the small side. With our first home, we decided to prioritise on a large kitchen as this was something we could remodel and add value to the house. Anyway, back to these scandi tables, we use them as our coffee table. We wanted something slim and small so they could be move around easily and not take up too much space. They look great together and make up the size of a normal coffee table but can be separated if we need to make more room. 

Then we have this little faux fur stool. I love this and hunted around for one that wasn't overly expensive. However, I've seen some DIY's on pinterest which work out cheaper but ah well, I am thinking of doing the DIY version as well but in chair form not stool. I originally bought this to go with our little desk however I have since moved it into the hallway next to our hallway table. 

Lastly, the copper wire basket. I bought this to house a couple of blankets in the living room. It's probably a completely unnecessary purchase however it does tidy things up a bit! I like to try and keep my home quite tidy as I find clutter can be quite stressful.   

So there we have it, just a handful of the things I've been buying for the house recently. I'll be sure to add some before and after pictures once rooms have been completed. The kitchen has been completely remodelled however we still need the walls re-plastered and painted. The living room/bedroom also needs an extra coat of paint in certain areas and a couple other things doing. But it's getting there, bit by bit! 

Also one last thing, I'm slightly addicted to this American program called "Buying and Selling" on ITVbe. It's about these two brothers who take people's crappy houses that they are trying to sell and make them look pinterest amazing in order to sell them for top dolla whilst finding them the next house for them to buy. Like the transformations of the houses is just amazing. If you're into property programs then this has to be the most stylish, pinterest esque one I've seen.

Trend Revival: Striped Trousers

I recently bought myself a pair of striped trousers and I'm already debating buying another pair. The final image here is from March 2014 but I decided to republish it with a few more recent looks added to the mix. A lot of trends do tend to fluctuate in and out of fashion and I feel like this trend is still going strong. Perhaps that's down to the statement this particular style of trouser makes which means that the trend is not overdone, thus allowing it to continue on through the recent years. Also it seems to please multiple styles, from minimal monochrome to bold print clashing.

When the weather is unpredictable, I tend to turn to a good pair of jeans a hell of a lot. Last year I got rid of a pair of white jeans that never fit me right and after seeing these looks again, it's making me want to hunt down a new pair. I love them paired with black boots and a black belt, I think the contrast works really well. Also loving them paired with the silver boots a lot. You can see hear that the white jeans can be styled for a/w as well as s/s making them a really versatile piece.

Recent Mirror Shots

25/01/17

We're weeks away from getting the keys to our new home and when I do you can bet the mirror will be in a place with a good lighting situation. Priorities! haha, anyway for now my posts might look like something from blogging circa 2012... but life goes on. Our new house is going to be a bit of a project. We're putting in a new kitchen and bathroom and we have to strip all this textured wallpaper off the walls and maybe plaster them. Then of course there is all the painting. However hopefully it will be a good investment and we will see some profit when we sell. And despite all the work, we will also get to make our home exactly how we want it. Although the idea of moving into a new build that was already done up was tempting... I am just looking forward to the part where I get to choose cool pillows and other homeware. Our new house is in the Leeds area, so a brand new city for the both of us. Tom already works there and currently has an 1:30 hour commute either way which will be cut down to 15 minutes when we move. Anyway, exciting times a head, just have to be patient in the mean time.

I turned 26 yesterday πŸŽˆπŸŽˆπŸŽˆ and I went for my first smear test last Tuesday whilst I still had a few days of being 25 left. Going to the doctors gives me bad anxiety but the relief after I got it done was worth it! It really wasn't as uncomfortable as I thought it would be. I just closed my eyes and it was over so quick. I have now returned to volunteering twice a week. When I first started volunteering, I had a whole load of anxiety about answering phone calls, going in for the informal interview, about meeting new people and worrying if I was going to make mistakes - but now once I'm there it's always fine. I had took some time off to visit my hometown for Christmas but it ended up being a longer break than that because my Granfer passed away on Xmas eve, he was the head of our family and my Nan is a little lost without him. She also caught a nasty flu right before his funeral and she thought she wouldn't be strong enough to attend, however my family were urging her to go and she pulled through like the trooper she is. My Granfer was a stubborn and headstrong man but he loved his family very much and worked hard his whole life. Unfortunately dementia made his last few years on this earth pretty tough for him, but as he counted with awe the amount of people around his hospital bed, we are sure that he knew how loved he was.

Next jumper (old), Primark jeans (new) & Primark shoes (old)

I've spent the last two weekends in Leeds and I'm heading to York this weekend, busy busy, so of course the introvert in me has to take it easy the days after. I'm starting to get around to getting more stuff done again now. I've been trying to write more, well clearly not on this blog - however I was on quite a roll with it all but now it's slowed down again... We're still waiting on paperwork to come through regarding our new house in Leeds, bloody takes ages this buying a house stuff. Feels like I've been patient for months and now my patience is running out. Just ready to move in now and end this in between - limbo stage. I just can't wait to start making a home again, it's been almost 6 months now since we moved back to UK.

I remember a time I would never ever wear jeans, as in my opinion they were so uncreative, so basic. However now jeans are often the first thing I reach for in the morning. Gone are the times where I would drift off to sleep planning outfits sans jeans. Since moving back to the UK, jeans have helped me deal with the UK climate again and you can't not agree that jeans have certainly got a bit more interesting in the past few years. I love the cropped style with the raw cuff, pictured left. In the outfit on the right I have actuality switched out jeans for leggings, but again this was another last minute outfit. I seem to have lost this ability to actually plan an outfit, probably the reason I'm not blogging as regularly anymore. But we'll see...

Wearing The Trend: Floral Embroidery

Totally loving the floral embroidery trend that has been appearing in blogs for the past few months. It's also pretty popular in the shops right now, so I reckon this trend is only going to grow over Spring time. I feel like this has to be my favourite form of floral because there tends to be either a boho or gothic edge to the pieces. I have even dabbled in this trend myself by purchasing an embroidered faux fur coat that I featured in a recent post (here). There is almost too much choice of embroidered pieces in the shops at the moment, and for really low prices to boot, I've featured a few picks below. Enjoy!
