OOTD: Am I an Art Student?

This outfit kind of reminds me of an art student, not sure why, I think it's the oversized shirt that does it. London was sweltering as usual today, but when I leave for work in the morning it's kinda cooler and I like to cover up but a cardigan is too hot. So this American Apparel shirt is pretty perfect.

Shirt- American Apparel    Dress- Topshop    Belt- Primark     Shoes- Topshop

Did my hair in this kinda weird quiff thing and it somehow stayed in all day.
Totally forgot I had this lace booties from Topshop I got a couple years ago. I realise these have a love/hate relationship with everyone, but I still like them haha.
Today was actually pretty good, as far as Monday's go. I think my fun sunny weekend probably helped ;)

OOTD: Space Bandit!

I think this outfit makes me look a bit like a space bandit/gypsy!

I wore this to work today and because the top half is a bit plain I decided to jazz it up with huuuuuuge hoops that I have developed a huuuuuuge love for! And a black bow since my hair was definitely not behaving this morning!
I know loads of people think Black Milk are way overpriced but to be honest I have worn my leggings so much now, they have probably cost about £1 per wear and I got lots of nice compliments about them :)

Here are some of my usual crazy photos that I took on landing haha!
T-Shirt- ASOS    Galaxy Leggings- Black Milk
Sorry for the bum shot, but I wanted to show you the beaut detail on the leggings!
I made the bow myself with an off-cut of fabric when I was cutting up a top! My hoop earrings were from Matalan about a year a go. 
You can just about see the remainder of what my makeup looked like this morning- I had little dots of eyeliner just in the middle of my bottom lashes which I think looked quite cute and different from usual.
I had a really great day at work today and did some good work I was told so I'm still on a high from that I think and it's only Tuesday, can you believe!? Hope you have all had lush days.

Hey friends and foes,

This is just a tiny update to apologies for being so terrible at blogging lately. There have been a few things that have contributed to the fact I've been missing in action, but hopefully after today I will back on the blogging wagon!

So I guess just general life got in the way for a bit, starting my new job was pretty draining and I'm still having to learn so much everyday and to be honest I'm probably the worst commuter known to man, it just knackers me out!
Secondly around a month ago me and Jon broke up, I made the decision but after 2 and a half years it was still pretty hard on me, so I've just been attempting to find my way back into single life again! However I'm feeling much more positive now and I still believe it was the right thing to do and me and Jon are still on good terms :) (which I don't think I've ever had with an ex before!)
Thirdly this month is the first anniversary of the death of a incredibly close friend of mine, so I have been thinking about him a lot and not that much about blogging to be honest.
And lastly I'd just lost a bit of my blogging mojo, I really want to post interesting things and everything I thought of just seemed to be blog-standard (see what I did there? haha). So I've been waiting for some inspiration to hit and I'm feeling much more excited about bits and pieces of late :D

Anyway to apologies for being so poo, here are two photos from my Instagram feed! If you have Instagram tell me your names below or add me, my username is bacontastesnice. I'm pretty obsessed with it at the moment so I want to see all your lovely photos!
My beautiful new House of Holland Superga shoes :D
Just a work day outfit.

OOTD: Working Woman

So I have just completed my first week at my internship, it has been very enjoyable and a little overwhelming, but I'm sure that's the same with any other job. Everyone dresses pretty casual there which is great since most of my outfits revolve around leggings, denim shorts and massive t-shirts! For example I started the week in a new shirt and have now ended it wearing leggings, a baggy t-shirt and my Vans!

Anyway this is what I wore one day this week. Tuesday I believe, so I was still feeling rather formal and probably trying to impress people!
Jumper- Tesco    Strap-top- Primark    Leggings- Topshop    Brogues- Topshop    Collar Necklace- Dorothy Perkins
I got this amazing collar necklace from Dorothy Perkins for a measly £1.70! It was reduced from about £6 to £2 I believe but with my student discount I got an extra 30p off! (Going to be so sad when my student discount finally runs out at the end of this month :'( )

And it goes perfectly with this amazing jumper from Tesco! Which is the perfect summer jumper, not too heavy and a nice salute to the ombre trend.
Do you guys have any good inspiration for work-wear? Or brought some supermarket lovelies?
