Matching Blazer and Shorts – ASOS Collared Shirt – Chicabooti Bowler Hat – Tempt Brogues – ASOS Bag – CPS Bow Tie – Equip

It’s the start of a new tedious week and the count down to the weekend has already begun. Since starting this blog, the most common questions I’ve been asked is “what is it for?” and “why are you doing it?” In a quick panic I start mumbling, stuttering and I find myself making up some odd reasons to justify why I strangely take photos of myself wearing my everyday outfits. I then realise that the year and a half I spent doubting myself, going around and around in circles, thinking if I should or shouldn’t. Somewhere along the way I had forgotten why I wanted to do this in the first place. Then I start thinking that I should categorise my blog into the common blogging stereotypes of “DIY”, “picture based”, “editorial” etc. etc. I thought to myself “At least then it would make more sense to other people”. But I guess to answer your questions; in all honesty I initially wanted to start blogging to share my own personal style. Let it be expressed in photos, words, drawing or creations, either way I just wanted to share my love for fashion. In this blog, don’t expect to see insanely expensive brand names (unless I scored it on sale) because lets face it, IM BROKE!” What you can expect is outfits based on the quote that I live by “don’t buy expensive clothes, make your clothes look expensive with how you wear it” taught to me by my very own mother. This is just the third post on a very freshly started blog, in other words there’s still room to grow.

Now about my outfit – Out of the many things I love to wear, depending on my mood of course, nothing else compares to a good old fashion bow tie. Not too sure when the obsession began, all I know is that I just can’t get enough, especially with this gold metal bow tie (which is actually meant to be a hair clip). I wore this on the weekend, I wanted to wear something quirky, bright, classic and cute; this was the end result. It was a chilly but not too cold day, so I thought it was a good time to bring out the matching blazer and shorts. I teamed up my white and black polka-dot bag to accentuate the love heart polka dot shirt. To tie the out fit together I accessorised adding a Bowler hat and classic 1920s inspired brogues.

Stay tuned for this weeks outfits.

Blazer – ASOS  Dress – Vintage  Brogues – Wandering Souls  Bag – Vintage  Beret – Forever New

It’s the day after Valentine’s Day and the aftermath of spiteful singles, PDA couples, love quotes, pictures of flowers and gifts still linger in my social atmosphere. By the end of yesterday I couldn’t stand anymore posts of “I hate my life because I’m single” and “I love my baby” blah blah blah. Don’t get me wrong I’m all about spreading the love and I understand that haters are gonna hate.  I guess since I’ve recently been using Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on a more regular basis, I was overwhelmed with the overkill of posts and photos. Personally I decided to keep my Valentine’s Day experience under wraps; it was my gesture of keeping it special for my other half.

This outfit was my Monday get up to work; I am a sucker for colour combinations that pop. The dress is a vintage 70s dress which has a crochet pattern throughout. I love this dress, not only because its so comfortable and classic but you can team it up with any coloured blazer or cardigan. I used a slightly cropped blazer to add height, no collar on the blazer gives the outfit a more softer look.  I like the colour combination of green and mustard; choosing colours that complement each other makes the outfit more interesting.

P.S the title was inspired by Ralph from The Simpsons – for anyone who doesn’t know this, you should be ashamed.

Playsuit – ASOS  Jelly Sandals – NOVO  Beach Hat – Jay Jays  Sunglasses – Tiffany & Co.

Woke up on bright and sunny Sunday morning, thanking god that my face was less swollen from getting my wisdom teeth out a week ago. After the constant supportive push from my boyfriend to start my own fashion blog. I thought to my self after a year and a half of procrastinating and self doubt “I guess today is the day”.

Soooooo I thought the first outfit that I would feature on my Blog should reflect my playful and at times childish personality. Which was fitting for a walk to the park with my boyfriend Chin (Yes, Chin as in the one on your face). Now you would think since my boyfriend is a photographer, that I would be comfortable in front of the camera……….. definitely NOT. After 2 and a half years of being his default model I still can’t seem to shake being camera shy. I automatically get in my silly mood since I feel so incredibly awkward. My 4 foot 9 height definitely affected my mentality to get in the model zone. Thankfully, Chin was able to get me just comfortable enough to get the right shots.

With this outfit I wanted to have some fun and show my love of bright colours. Plus I wanted an excuse to wear my new neon orange jelly sandals.

Stay tuned for this weeks outfits

EDIT: Re did the photos. Had the wrong colour profile so it looked weird on some mediums.
