DENIM JACKET LOVING





It's finally denim jacket weather again, I shall rejoice and revel in the arrival of this great season. I feel I have been starved of its denim glory all winter, there's something about an oversized denim jacket which just screams *wear me* with every outfit, maybe I'm just drawn in by the 'cool' vibe it seems to emit. There's no surprise then, that this has been my go to outfit in recent weeks - I've found it works when you're not quite sure what to wear, be it due to the temperamental English weather or the classic floordrobe moment that leaves you in despair, scrambling for some sense of a pleasing outfit - the denim jacket saves all.

EMBROIDERED IN THE SAND














Until a particularly sunny (and warm, wow) afternoon last week, I had never taken advantage of the fact that the beach is literally at the end of my road - perfect place for shooting outfit pictures, no? If you squint your eyes it could may as well be L.A... wishful thinking gone too far I think. Ever since my love sprouted for the whole 70s spring/summer trend, I've been trying to inject pieces that reflect bohemian elements into my wardrobe. The white blouse pictured above is the likes I'd been scouring the depths of depop for, without luck of course, so cue The Vintage Corner - a vintage shop just around the corner (ha, see what I did there) from where I live. The shop is something I'd noticed for awhile but never ventured into and long story short - I feel like kicking myself for my absence as whilst browsing the rails I found this little gem in all it's embroidered glory. Not forgetting the lovely little black bag, which was £3 may I add - something I'd also coincidentally been searching for without score - maybe vintage shopping is the way to go from now on - I mean all that for ONLY £13, where can you go wrong?

PROM STYLE: DRESS IT UP

If you're stuck on what to wear to your prom - do not fear, if one thing is certain it's that you can't go wrong with a classic frock. Be it a short and sweet number or a drawn out ball gown, there's plenty of options to dress it up. For me, I've always been a fan of the ball gown - inspired by red carpet looks that ooze glamour and allure - all that a floor-length number seems to offer... plus, if you can't frock it up for prom when can you? But that doesn't mean that a short hem should be out of the question - style up a short number with stand out accessories such as metallics and pearls, the likes seen in outfit #2, my personal favourite of the short lot, you can't say no to a little bit of pink can you? Although, my heart lies with the bold red toned occasion wear in #3, the cut of the dress is simply stunning and I just adore the gold star pearl drop earrings - I may just have to snag them up for my own prom attire!

PROM STYLE: TWO PIECES AND JUMPSUITS

Traditionally, prom was all about the gown - be it long or short (something which takes form in the second instalment of this prom style post). Recent days however, have seen a rise in more obscure occasion wear. If I were more prepared for the leavers ball I am attending this year, well I should probably say attending THIS MONTH (yikes), I would like my outfit to resemble the exact ensemble that takes the form of outfit number one, specifically. I adore the long pink satin skirt, I have got a bit of a thing for satin recently and to avoid it looking too overdone, I kept the outfit simple and paired it with the ruffled white crop top. Overall I kept to a neutral colour scheme with the clutch and shoes to accentuate the stand out satin skirt which is the focus of the outfit. Instead of the pink satin dream outfit - something which my planning nor budget would have allowed - for prom I am opting for a rather nice red VLabel London dress (considering it fits and looks well, nice of course) but, you'll have to wait for an instagram post to see that in all it's chiffon glory.

Oh and you may have noticed that ASOS was the store of choice for the entirety of this prom instalment and, for a very good reason. To me, ASOS stands out due to it's diversity of not only clothing but it's vast choice of labels and brands too. ASOS offers a wide variety of choice and despite it just being an online store that you may only currently browse for everyday clothing, I would definitely take a look on there if you're stuck on what to wear for prom because no doubt, you will find something which takes your fancy - as ASOS boasts garments to suit every budget.
