I’ve been trying to do this post for days now, but my first week back at uni has been rather time consuming! Between losing my phone (and getting it back again, phew!), catching up with everyone in London and Rochester, bonding with my new housemates and nearly freezing on my way home from uni on Friday, I am very glad the weekend has come around again so I can get some nice R+R and have some spare time to finally blog… and also, catch up on the new season of Gossip Girl! Who else is excited about this?!
As you may be able to tell by now, stylistically speaking I’m really inspired by the costumes worn by the gorgeous ladies of the Upper East Side. Whilst I know I’m most definitely not the only one to pull inspiration from the show, I really do have a lot of fun accessorizing outfits with bows, splashes of primary colours and whatever else I find along the way! I’ve always been kind of envious of people who manage to pull of the ‘laid back’ look, and have experimented with it myself in the past… but unfortunately, as me and Carrie were discussing the other day on our visit to Nandos (that place definitely brings out deep coversations, haha); not everyone can throw on a pair of jeans and a loose fitting t-shirt and manage to look ultra-glam!
So as for those girls who can pull it off, I’ll leave them to it and admire them from a distance, but for me, I really do enjoy dressing this way so I won’t be trying to change any time soon : )
Remember a couple of posts ago I mentioned that I was going to be helping out over at British Style Bloggers? My London Fashion Week street style piece is now up, yay! So if you’d like to check it out, please do… I hope you’ll enjoy it, you may even spot some familiar faces in there, too!
I really hope you’ve all had a good week, I certainly have, despite the madness and whatnot : ) I would just like to say a continuing big huuuuge fluffy sparkly thank you to those of you who continue to read Cherry Humbug and leave me lovely comments – I appreciate it very much! Love xox
