Fashion

Whilst I love the odd OOTD post, I much prefer writing in depth features. However, I hit the blogger boyfriend jackpot and do like to make use of his professional photography skills every now and again!

I probably love to read fashion blogs more than writing them, admittedly so. As such, this category will most likely be comprised of longer features and comedic (hopefully!) GIF posts. I love researching trends but I must admit I don’t particularly follow them. I simply wear whatever I like and hope it works out for me!

Any product marked with an * has been sent to me, but I will only ever publish my honest opinion.

The evolution of the day dress

The day dress is a staple piece in many women’s wardrobes. Often coming out over spring and summer, a light dress can brighten our mood and our outfits – it’s perfect for drinks at the pub, barbeques and the occasional cocktail party. But where did the day dress that we know and love begin? And how have celebrities rocked the garment over the years? Trilogy stores, retailers of womenswear from designers such as Rails Clothing, tell us more…

What to wear when ‘jeans and a nice top’ won’t do

I’m about to say something extremely controversial as a blogger; I hate the dress code ‘jeans and a nice top’.

Hear me out!

Confessions of a wannabe trashwalker

Hotmess t-shirt dress is not long enough to cover my bum.

*Raises hand* Hi. My name is Jess, I’m 25 and I can’t find t-shirt dresses long enough to cover my fanny.

At 5ft 9inches before heels, I’m not the tallest but I’m also not the shortest. Combined with my size 12 figure, I fill out an oversized t-shirt well. Some may say too well. So well, in fact, THAT THEY ALWAYS SHOW MY BUM, FS.

Creators I loved in 2017


First of all, I’ve been writing this blog post since October. OCTOBER. Since when did it ever take 3 months to produce a curated blog post?

Well, this one is pretty beefy and to be fair 2017 was an amazing year for creators. “Are you sure?” I hear you ask, with the fear of algorithm changes in your voice.

Yes.

Heck yes, I’m sure. Because in the face of the internet’s changing goalposts some incredible creators fought their way to the top.

Layering up for winter with Lasula

When I got back from Budapest last week, I couldn’t quite believe how cold it was in the UK. I’d actually over-packed for my trip with tons of chunky jumpers and when I landed back home in Manchester, I was shocked at how fast the temperature had plummeted.

Layering up for me is never an issue though! I much prefer winter fashion to summer, don’t you? Cosy knitwear, bobble hats and the perfect excuse to crack out my collection of turtlenecks (psh, as if I need an excuse).

Now I don’t know about you but I’m a bigger fan of layering up, rather than relying on one big chunky coat. It just makes more sense to throw on a jacket with a jumper and underlay, rather than cracking out the Patagonia and getting all sweaty on the walk to work. Excuse the TMI, but you know exactly what I’m going on about!
