Moving House...Again

Coachella 2014 Street Style

Coachella Festival is one of those festivals that I always want to go to but never quite get around to organising or saving up for, the idea of a festival in America massively appeals to me and i'm always so jealous looking at the pictures afterwards.

Change In Career...

Before I left Uni I had only ever had two jobs; working in a supermarket for four years and then Urban Outfitters for three and a half, then all of a sudden as a graduate and in the space of a year I had four jobs, thats not even an exaggeration!

Sweet Virginia

Whilst I was working at Motel a few years ago one of the girls introduced me to Yayer, an online vintage store with some gorgeous 90s dresses and denim. Run by two sisters Charlotte and Harriet, the brand started selling vintage and has now moved on to their own designs, which is the bit i'm most excited about! I'm always really happy when I find inspiring companies based in Bristol, as there's not a lot of fashion businesses run here, so it gives me hope that I won't have to move to London!

I haven't fully thrown myself into the 90s trend but Yayer are convincing me that I should be! My favourite item has to be the black dress with the cut out waist below, that is definitely my next purchase, I love it! I really like the loose, smock style of a lot of their dresses, I want to team them with layers of jewellery and massive chunky shoes for Summer.

I do have a bit of an 'ugly' shoe obsession, recently i've bought two pairs of black chunky shoes which i'll be sure to show you guy soon. I wear a lot of dresses and skirts but would never describe myself as a 'girlie' girl so I like the way ugly shoes give my dresses a boyish edge and stop me looking too 'pretty'. I love the 'stomper' boots the last pair on this image, they're not too high so I could wear them but they also look comfy, and perfect for wearing in the day.

Make sure you check out their website, I thought it was reasonably priced and we all know how much I resent spending excessive amounts on one item! They run a Yayer blog which you can find here and also have a pretty inspiring Tumblr and Pinterest which I have re-blogged images from far too many times!

I also wanted to leave you with this video which I have watched roughly 20 times a day for the past week, Mick is just too sexy! 

Blogger Of The Month: Phoenix Moon

I missed blogger of the month in March, I haven't found any new bloggers recently and have given recognition to all my favourites already, so felt a bit stuck! I have been following Phoenix Moon on Instagram for a while and whilst I knew she ran her own vintage website I have only just discovered that she has a favourite blogger! Living in Texas and basically looking like she's just stepped out of Almost Famous, this girl is style personified, she's mixing up a fantastic mix of 70's hippy with perfect witchy woman. I don't even know her name because she doesn't have an 'about me' section on her blog but if anyone can fill me in please do! 

Usually I collate images from my favourite blogger on photoshop to show you guys as many looks as I can, but the photography on this blog is so beautiful I didn't feel I could crop anything and wanted it to be shown as it is. The images look editorial and are an equal mix between crisp, bold images and styled to look like old film photos. This blog is much more than just a style blog, you can appreciate the photography, styling and composition, every post looks well planned and shot to perfection, something I have a lot of respect for because shooting blog images can become very rushed for me. 

As for the clothes I don't even know where to begin, sometimes she wears layers of prints, colours and texture creating a perfect bohemian look, other times it's just a simple t shirt and jeans, yet she still looks more interesting and stylish than most. Accessories are key, plenty of round sunglasses, floppy hats, tassels and chunky jewellery make up a lot of the look but it's the flowing fabrics that really make it for me. 

I leave you with a large selection of images and if anyone knows this girls name please let me know! 

Company Blog Awards

If you are a regular reader of my blog you might notice that I haven't blogged for almost a month, it's partly down to my current lack of camera which is still driving me mad, I seriously need to invest in a lens! It's also down to a few bits going on in my personal life which have meant blogging hasn't been a top priority recently. As I have touched on in the past I suffer quite badly with anxiety, if anyone has suffered from anxiety you will  know how debilitating it can be and what a huge effect it can have on your life. It's something i'm trying to move on from at the moment by undergoing a course of CBT and a few other stress management courses, I do think it's helping but obviously as with anything of this nature it's going to take a bit of time. I am so excited for the day that I only worry about 'real' problems and am not feeling like i'm going to be sick constantly! I know anxiety is something I will always have but being able to manage it and calm myself down will be a huge achievement for me, and a huge relief for the people that I am close to in life, my anxiety can be just as hard for them as it is for me! 

I have a few posts lined up for the next week, one of the reasons I started a blog was reading from other bloggers how it helped with their anxiety/depression/low self esteem and honestly this blog really does make me feel so positive when i'm regularly posting! As much as I write this blog for myself and my own sanity, it is still amazing to receive all the lovely comments and messages I get from you guys and nothing feels as good as when I get an email to say I have a new follower. I don't really expect any recognition because I know I don't post that regularly but here is a link to the Company blog awards page, Company is one of my favourite magazines and Missguided is my favourite online shop so it's a match made in heaven for me!

 It would mean a lot to me if anyone likes my blog or what I have to say and fancied giving me a vote, and thanks in advance if you do :)
