OOTD - Tell me about it stud.

Top: New look (brought of a friend)
Disco pant/leggings: £14.99 Missguided

I've had a change of scenery and decided to take some photo's while staying at my nans and it turns out the lighting is so much better then at my own house, but I'm just rubbish at taking pictures and feel and look awkward staring at the camera. However my closest friend has volunteered taking my outfit pictures for me, unlike me she can use a camera properly, so I'll probably be taking her up on that.

I've been wanting to invest in a pair of Disco pants for a long time now, but £70 was a bit steep for me and well trying to persuade someone else is just crazy, so I was on the hunt for some dupes. But buying online and being only 5ft, I'm always faced with the problem 'is it going to fit like it should?' so it takes a whole lot of research before I decided to go ahead with a purchase. Although these don't have the disco pant detail like the button and back pockets (I could have got the glamorous one but was just being cheap) I'm actually really impressed with these and they feel and look great, I will probably be living out the them  for a few months, no doubt!

The top I got off one of my neighbours, Mel, who is doing a little facebook sale and let me rummage through bin liners of clothes before putting everything on the computer, practically brand new and for only £3. A bargain or what?! I of course paired this with a pair of vans and denim jacket for when I got chilly.

These pictures are pretty low quality and were last minute snaps by either my little sister or best friend. (Does anyone else feel silly saying that?) I only took pictures of my evening outfits because the days pretty much consisted of being half naked walking around or in the pool/beach, was way to hot, I'm definitely not a sun worshipper! As you can probably tell I pair everything with a pair of my vans, I'm pretty sure my mum was glad she brought me my white ones now! I think their is only 1 outfit their that I didn't, this is mainly because one of my feet swell in the heat and makes it difficult to find and wear comfy shoes.

For some reason, I don't know about anyone else?, but I feel much more confident with wearing and trying pieces of clothing abroad rather then home! I'd been looking for a maxi skirt for ages, I'm 5ft1 so it's really hard to find ones to fit in the length, so when I saw this one on inlovewithfashion.com on sale from £32 to £19, I fell instantly in love and knew I HAD to have it!
I was also trying out a coral/red lipstick, I acquired from Superdrug days before I went. I really love the whole lipstick look and it gives that subtle lift to any outfit and have been wanting to try it for a few months but I never really had the confidence to try it out until then! I have to admit I adore and can't wait to get more variety of colours!

That one holiday song!

I've been listening to each artist for around a year now, mainly Orla Gartland and Hudson Taylor. (Gutted I can't see them tomorrow!) I saw this video just days before going on holiday and knew I had to get it on my Ipod as soon as possible and then proceeded to listen to every time my Ipod came on, I've always liked this song and this version is just great! I'd recommend everyone to listen to them!

Just to say hello!

I've been contemplating for a while now about starting up this blog, there was always something that stopped me from starting it until now. I decided I just need to go for it! I'm so excited about entering the world of fashion blogging, documenting and seeing the changes that will occur over the years (hopefully). I'm still in progress with making the blog personal towards me but without certain equipment it's hard to achieve all my ideas, hopefully with time though!
