Green Garden...

Its been a long time since I last did a blog post... nearly 7 months... but I've decided to give it another go and have given my blog a fancy new make over. 

Anyone who knows me knows that FASHION is my true love in life.  I so miss having a creative outlet, and doing creative things, (uni feels like a lifetime ago now...) and it's not through lack of trying to make it in fashion, because I have tried so SO hard, but it hasn't gone to plan. So now I'm going to try and enjoy doing a blog, hence why I thought I may as well give a nice fresh new look. 

The main reason I stopped doing it was because of confidence. But, I'm just going to try again.

So here's my new first post on my blog again... :)  

Pinafore - Zara 
Shirt - Topshop 
Bag - & Other Stories
Shoes - French Connection 
Jewellery - Mawi, Whistles, Marc Jacobs, H&M

These pictures were taken last year when we went away for one of my aunties birthdays. How beautiful is this garden? It was like a secret garden which overlooked a massive cricket ground, and it had lovely water features, gorgeous flowers and plants, an amazing pond, and different tiered levels to it. 

When I bought this green pinafore from Zara (for the absolute bargain price of £29.99) I didn't actually realise how much I would wear it. 

I literally don't think I've ever worn a dress/pinafore so much in my life. It goes with everything! I wear it with jumpers, shirts, cropped long sleeve tops... all sorts. 

Although I do feel a bit like I should be working in a butchers in it, I absolutely LOVE it, and it has definitely been my go-to outfit this winter. 

This ensemble is a bit of a bargain outfit... The shirt is an old Topshop one that I found when I was working in retail at Outfit, it was a maternity blouse reduced to £10 in the sale! And you can't really tell on these pictures, but it is two different pastel shades, its like a pastel green inside, with panels of sheer lilac chiffon. 

The boots are my old faithful French Connection leather ones, which I've had about 5 years, and got from the York designer outlet for around £40! and full price they were around £150 I think?! They have served me very well, which proves that although I got them in a sale, even if I had paid full price, they would be well worth the cost per wear. 

The hat is one I got from TK Maxx about 3 years ago for £12 and every time I wear it someone will ask me where its from. I love to find items in unexpected places, and sometimes I think I overlook TK Maxx when there are some bargains to be had there if you can be bothered to rummage! 

(ps. please ignore my really awkward face, and my scrunched up face, my cousin was making me laugh! and these are the only images we took at the time, and as I am trying to work on my confidence I don't actually have any new photos to show yet! And I like the colours in these ones so thought I'd show them.)
