Have had a somewhat crazy start to my summer, starting with an amazing week of work experience at Red magazine, followed by a week in Benicasim, Spain for FIB music festival, which was crazy and incredible for entirely different reasons. Next on the agenda is California, where I will undoubtably find a multitude of photo and outfit ops to post when I return for AS results in 3 weeks (!!!)
Spent a magical couple of days in Paris with my absolute soul sister, Erin, where we walked, drank and browsed to our hearts’ content. We stayed in Hotel Mama Shelter, which aside from being slightly out of the way, was beyond cool, and the weather was just the right amount of hot to make jackets unnecessary, but also to make the multiple leather items we were wearing marginally uncomfortable. An overall incredible trip, which I swear as I always do to make far more regular than it ever will be.

Wearing the second of my recently acquired EM crop tops, the enjoyment of which is two fold in the knowledge that their one-size-fits-all fits me. Spent a disproportionate amount of time working out if there was in fact too much frill/pleat texture going on here, but eventually came to the realisation that no such thing exists (see Suki Waterhouse princess dress at Met Gala 2014)
Paired my leather jacket and Dr Marten boots with my new favourite fluffy bag to champion contrast dressing. Thrown on top of my dad’s shirt, with an alice band for good measure, this was quite possibly the most incongruous outfit of all time. Nonetheless, there is a certain je ne sais quoi about this combination that I can very much see myself channelling in the new future…
Trial and error has shown that I perform better in exams when I’m dressed real sassy, so for the penultimate day of exams I went for reverse buttoning my Pepe jeans shirt with my Kate Moss x Topshop suede shorts and Dr Martens flats. Having only one more exam left is happy-inducing on the level of post-plait crinkly hair and having a new phone. Content LT.
