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?

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.

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!

Do you really need a new season makeover?

Do you like my yellow puffer jacket? I look and feel like a chunky little minion when I wear this jacket.

In the run up to Autumn/Winter I’ve been trying to build a cosy wardrobe that’s a little more mature. Think muted tones, rich layers and of course plenty of turtle necks. However, as you can see dressing mature isn’t really ‘my thing’.
