I read somewhere once that you should begin your blog posts with pictures. I can't remember the reason behind it though and I wish I did because now I always feel the need to have a picture before any writing and I just wish I remembered why. Anyway, along with the outfit post. I'm not sure why this outfit reminds me of a teenage boy from a time era that I'm not sure of. Maybe 50's or 90's? I don't know, either way I feel like an american school boy in this outfit. I feel like I should be hanging with a clique of other teenage american boys who play baseball after school and say 'why I oughtta' when someone is getting a little bit too rude. Those are the vibes I get from this outfit.

One of my favourite things about this outfit is that it's so simple, but with the contrasting neckline and sleeves it makes it look so much more than just a t-shirt and jeans even though that's what it is. Although I think it could do with a black belt. I keep saying how I need to buy a black belt but I never do, but I shall purchase one soon. Next week I plan on going charity shop shopping and maybe a car boot sale, but maybe I'll be lucky there. My only issue with this outfit is that the top is quite big, so when I tuck it in I get weird bulges if I don't do it carefully, but that is something I get with most my clothes so I can handle that issue by just pretending they're not there. It also looks good untucked over the jeans, so technically I can avoid that outfit fault, but I prefer it tucked in. I feel more american school boy.  I actually wanted to post a different outfit today, but since it's been oddly sunny in England the last few days I felt like I should post this whilst it still fits in with the weather because this is definitely not a winter outfit.

In other news, my sister went back to uni yesterday and she forgot to take her cactus with her so now I'm taking control of looking after it and it's so cool. It looks like a broccoli with spikes. One day, I will show you all my cacti collection and you will be impressed. That day is not today though, so enjoy the outfit post. See you soon!

  2. How fab do you look?! Really enjoyed reading this post and omg the mom jeans, I always go to buy them and then end up spending my money on something else which is so annoying because they look sooo good. Ah. I actually picked up a gorgeous black belt at a car boot sale last week for 50p!!

  4. I love the t shirt and it looks so good with your mom jeans. I can never seem to find tops that go with my mom jeans so your outfit posts where you're wearing them always give me ideas, so thank you for that! Haha.

    1. Oh aha I'm glad I help! I used to never know and thought you could only wear tight tops with them, but now I've changed my opinion, loads of tops go but you just don't always think of them- you know? Either way I;m glad I help!;)X

    1. I do it like this but I honestly have no idea why but it just feels wrong now to do it any other way! And thank you :), I love these shoes, they were so expensive but I basically wear them every day so they were definitely worth it!x

  7. Ahh I love this! I love how mom jeans look but I'm not convinced I could ever pull them off, also since I barely ever wear jeans aha. But they look so great on you, especially with that top! xx

  12. Love the american baseball vibe! I'm a big fan of oversized things, I like to float a little inside my outfit haha. Your cacti collection sounds beaut! I'm putting together my own collection myself, in the hope to make my uni room a bit of a jungle by the end of term haha Xx

    1. I want some bonsai trees too, I want a mini jungle too but I don't think I'm good enough to look after anything more than a cactus aha, but thank you! I like to float inside it too, especially a dress or a skirt, I don't see the fun in wearing a tight dress or skirt when you could be all flowly and free!x

  13. Your style is amazing, you make me want to buy everything that you mention! I don't think my purse likes you very much! Your style posts are so so helpful - very needed for my lack of fashion sense! x
