Studying fashion means I am often surrounded by a ton of inspiration when it comes to street style. Someone who gets it right constantly is Ashleigh. She too studies fashion at uni, and the day I met her I was instantly drawn to her quirky and fun style. I still remember exactly what she wore -  a pair of black Zara culottes (I happened to be wearing the exact same ones...!) and a blue leather jacket, with her hair in these kooky little space buns which looked so effortlessly cool. Her outfits are often a mix of indie brands and items from mainstream high-street stores such as Zara. Whatever she puts on she looks amazing, and her style is a true inspiration of how to stand out from the crowd and own it.

P I N K

January 24, 2017














It's no secret that I am well and truly obsessed with culottes. I now own 6 pairs and I'm still trying to work out if that is an excessive number or just giving me plenty of options...

They are a truly versatile piece for your wardrobe and work well day or night. Culottes make you look instantly put together when in fact you have probably made minimal effort. Also, what with the wide, flowing nature of them it makes you feel as though you are still wearing pyjamas which is always a bonus. I have been trying to venture away from wearing black all the time, and so this pink pair offer a great alternative and add some well needed colour to my outfits. Wear with black, white or grey and you have an instantly chic look. If you are yet to venture into the world of culottes, I couldn't recommend it enough. Men may find them a bewildering concept, but women will envy your effortlessly cool style - trust me.

The Cami Dress

January 11, 2017













Cami and slip dresses have been everywhere this season. From the catwalk to the high-street, they are a must have for day and night and are the perfect piece for layering. I picked up this one in the Missguided sale and its been a fab addition to my wardrobe. Styled with a stripe or plain tee and converse and you have yourself the perfect causal day outfit. Alternatively,  a pair of heels and a chocker and you are ready to go for night out...

NEW YEAR

January 01, 2017

Being a student it seems I never have any money. Being a fashion student means I always wish I had money because a whole semester not being able to buy new clothes is truly a hard task! The January sales have been my excuse to spend what should have probably gone on food, on some new clothes for the new year...

ZARA is where its at in terms of incredible sales purchases this year. I placed a rather large order on Christmas Day as soon as the sale begun, but have no regrets about doing it. I have had my eye on this leopard print jacket since it hit the shops about 4 months ago. Shamefully, I've even stopped people in the street wearing this jacket just to tell them I love it - bad, I know. Finally to have my hands on it is an incredible feeling and I am yet to take it off. It is tastefully tacky and I am ready to embrace my inner Kat Slater with it. Another ZARA sale purchase is this simple sweatshirt. Perfect for days when you want to just throw something on and be comfortable whilst still looking like you made an effort (in student terms thats 'perfect for a 9am lecture when you're hungover and would rater be in bed...).
