OOTD 31.8.14 Goodbye Summer


It's the last day of summer today, and although I don't officially go back to college until the 10th of September, I still feel as if summer has drawn to a close and it's almost time to get the jumpers back out again.
This summer has been pretty great. It wasn't particularly packed for me as I mainly worked and recovered after my AS exams, but it gave me a chance to make some changes to my life. Since the beginning of summer, I've cut out the toxic people who were holding me back from being myself. I also have a new found confidence which is going to benefit me so much in my last year of college and especially at Uni. I now feel that it's OK to feel OK with myself. The past few years have been hell for me and I got to the point where I felt it would never get better, but now my outlook on life has completely taken a turn. I'm so much more positive and I feel so confident that I can overcome certain struggles that I'm going through. For the first time in forever, I feel happy again.

Right, enough of the soppyness, here's what I wore today! I wanted something bright to reflect my mood and to make the most of the last day of August.

I hope you've all had wonderful summers!

OOTD; 19.08.14 Post V Fest Vibes


I am currently suffering from post-festival blues as I arrived home yesterday from an amazing weekend at V Festival. It was my first ever festival so as well as being MEGA excited, I was also pretty nervous- the thought of horrible loos and not showering for 3 days terrified me! But I survived and had the best weekend ever, seeing 18 acts in total! I may end up doing a V Fest post including some of the pictures I took on my disposable cameras, but let's face it, I'm not one to commit to these sorts of things so if I don't, here's a short summary!

Some of the pictures I took!
Justin Timberlake and The Killers headlined this year and they were both incredible; seeing JT perform SexyBack and singing along to Mr Brightside have to be two of the best experiences ever! I also saw Dan Croll, George Ezra, Tom Odell, Neon Trees, Kaiser Chiefs, Bastille, The Human League, Example, Ed Sheeran, M People, Aloe Black, Sam Smith, Childish Gambino, Rudimental, Lily Allen and Paolo Nutini (who is GORGEOUS by the way), so it was a pretty full on weekend! It seriously was the best weekend ever!


At the festival, they had various stands selling different items and I came across a clothes stall and me being me, couldn't resist buying something. I spotted these gorgeous trousers and just had to get them! It took me about 15 minutes to choose what print I was going to get as there were too many to choose from! You could get 2 pairs for £15, so my friend got a pair also and it worked out as £7.50 each, which is a total bargain!

The trousers are so comfy and easy to wear, plus I love a good vibrant print! The grey, ribbed crop top that I'm wearing is from Topshop, my Leather Jacket is from Primark, along with the sandals and bag. 

Trousers: £7.50 ~ Top: £8 ~ Jacket: £18 ~ Bag: £6 ~ Sandals: £10
