Sweet Inspiration

 
Sources: Look magazine
 
I've been taking a brief blog break due to a struggle to find inspiration to put together outfits to share. And so I've cracked on with my collaging to help with my creativity block. My collages started with cutting out things I liked and putting them on a page, however, its slowly developed into pages with themes and trends. Adding extras like crafty accessories and drawings that give texture and individuality. My favourite of these is the 'peter pan collar' out of part of a birthday card, I spotted the polka dot pattern (which sadly doesn't show well) and frill lining and I knew it'd be perfect. As you can see I've left some of my notes I make on each page whilst I'm putting them together, it might make the thought process of the page a bit clearer. I find it incredibly relaxing to do and each finished page gives me a little burst pride. I hope to get styling again, but I'd love to share more of the completed collage projects in future x

Still a little sapling, just a sprout

Cardigan: Fashion Union, Top: River Island, Jeans: Primark, Boots: Topshop, Necklace: Dorothy Perkins, Nail varnish: Essie in Muchi Muchi.
 
I picked up this gorgeous thick knit Cardi last year in the winter Fashion Union sale for just £10! The wheat brown colour is perfect to fit with almost anything without looking too dark and dingy. I decided to go for comfort (as always) with pair with my trusty jeans I picked up in Primark years ago, and my legs still haven't grown into them. Finishing off with a slouchy vest with sweet ruched 'Love' lettering detail. And my ultimate winter boots complete with suede lining for that ultimate winter feel. It might only be September, but I think summer has well and truly ended here.
 
 
Any tangled fans will get the title ;)

Change in my pocket

Hat: Missguided, Backpack: Topshop, Dress: New Look, Jumper: Topshop, Boots: Topshop
 
Its grungy, unflattering and very much a comfort outfit, perfect for a rainy day. The sheer black as the basis of this outfit creates an almost blank canvas to begin with. With the lightness of the dress hem and the leather look Boots and collar to add purpose. Then to give texture the thick knit, denim and metal works really nicely together. It fails on my '"trying to be more girly" front, but its an outfit I find really easy to chuck on as winter sets in.
