Popped up, Tucked in


 Two things I am really into right now: popping my collar and tucking in my trousers. Here's why.

1. Popping my collar: Most importantly, it gives the option of the ever stylish hair tuck without wearing a turtle neck/roll neck. Secondly, Victoria Beckham did so now we all should too. 

2. Tucking in my trousers: Makes wide legged trousers look even cooler, which I didn't know was possibly. Secondly, Victoria Beckham has been wearing trousers that are baggy around her ankles, she's yet to tuck them into boots (as fas as I am aware), but I have faith that she will soon (don't let me down VB, don't let me down).

Bypass Your Coat


 Who else is living in the same coat (maybe two) now the weather has gone cold. Literally every. single. day. There is nothing wrong with that, and it's why I always invest in a good winter coat, but it does get a little dull. So, to bypass the boredom, layer up! In this outfit I have on a t-shirt, white shirt and knit. I was a toasty as can be! Granted, I was a little bunched up and at times uncomfortable, but fashion isn't about comfort, and we all know that to be true!

Lady Like


 Can hardly get over myself in this post - I am in a skirt, a lady skirt, ooooooo. Not dressed in my usual oversized androgynous get up, I am giving a midi skirt a go! I have wanted to try one for so long, I have seen so much inspiration of how to wear them and so many looks I have fallen in love with. When I was last in London I picked up this one from Whistles, which is perfect! However, it has taken me agessss to get around to wearing it, as I just have been so stuck! 

So I really need your help, how can I style this?? I went with all black and a baggy jumper for this look, but it feels kind of unimaginative! How would you wear a skirt like this??

Coffee Mornings


 These were taken on Saturday morning when Harry and I decided to have a coffee and some lunch while blogging. One of my favourite places to shoot for the blog is by Leeds Uni. It is such a beautiful building, and the stone is rather Parisian (Read: my dream blogging location!) On weekdays shooting at Uni is out of the question, it's so busy, but on the weekend it is almost empty. We shot these photos, then headed over the road to my favourite café in Leeds, Froth and Fodder - if you want to know more about that then check my Otley Tea Run post for a little review!

One Of Those Days


 These photos were taken mid way through one of those days. I had planned to shoot loads of looks, and it rained all day. The whole day had been so unproductive I was just not in the best of moods. Hopefully these pictures aren't giving away the bad mood (all my posts are moody anyway!!), but they definitely have a stood-in-the-rain-drowned-rat kind of vibe. At first I didn't think I would share these, but then I thought maybe it would be nice to acknowledge the bad days we all sometimes have!
