My Style: Woodland Bohemian Dreaming*

By January 24, 2016 My Style

So let’s start off by saying that this outfit probably seems quite different to the sorts of styles I featured in my aesthetics post… yes, it is quite different but firstly, it’s still rather retro with the seventies bohemian edge, but secondly, currently, this style is sort of the opposite side of the coin. It’s simple, with very little to it, but the print and style of the dress make-up for the lack of texture etc. You’ll see… you’ll see!

I’d had my eye on this dress for a while, so when it dropped down to a more reasonable price (for a teen), I knew I had to pick it up. As you’ve probably gathered from my previous outfit posts, I’m not really a huge dress wearer, so it’s quite unusual to see me so in awe of one… so this one of those rare occasions for sure!

It’s slightly brighter than on the website, but I don’t mind that because it’s blue, and I wear a lot of blue. Although the print is gorgeous, I can’t get over the fit and loose style. It’s going to be perfect for all year round… I mean, you could 100% pull of this look in summer time… maybe swap out the DMs (unless you’re feeling brave… your feet may boil) for some sandals and take off those cheeky little skin-coloured tights.

It’s a grown-up dress too… because I don’t own many dresses, it’s nice to pick out ones which are slightly more mature and real staples that I know I’ll have in my wardrobe for a long time. Ugh, I just love it. The splits too… I love a nice split!

I can’t talk about anything else than this dress. It’s just not possible…. so I’ll talk about a different aspect just in case you’re interested. Yes, it’s made in India. But actually, this is one of the very few non-ethical/sustainable purchases I’ve made in quite some time. I picked up some trousers from Mötivi which were made in Italy (I was very happy when I found this out), and a jumper from Pull & Bear which was made in Portugal, and most of my other new additions to my wardrobe have either been gifts or second-hand.

I’m pretty chuffed, and as I’ve mentioned in previously, I personally think it’s more about quantity over completely changing your shopping habits. Take small steps, and you’ll get there.

  NOW PLAYING: I. flight of the navigator (Childish Gambino) 🎶


Of course I can’t forget to mention these shoes though. I officially have three pairs of Dr Martens in my collection (four if you count the pair that don’t fit me anymore, on my display shelf) and I couldn’t be more happy about this addition. I’ve had my eye on this pair for a while (I tried them on in a shop a while ago and they fit like a glove) as well as the classic cherry red DMs which the Italians seem to love, but I think I’ll wait a little while until adding them.

This pair are the the 1B99’s which have 14 eyelets and hit me about mid calf/mid shin. I was tempted by the knee-high DMs, but surprisingly these are actually a lot higher than just the usual 6/8 eyelet boots. For those of you who stay away from higher boots due to being thin, I really wouldn’t worry about these as although they have a little gap on me (mind you I am super small), they fit perfectly without any problems.

Overall I love them and they match my dress just as I had imagined (I basically bought this dress just to pair them up), and I can’t wait to style them up with shorts in the warmer months. I would 100% recommend them if you’re a Dr Martens fan and are looking to add a different style/shape to your selection.


What do you think of this seventies bohemian inspired outfit? What sorts of things are you wearing at the moment? Leave a comment to let me know!

To add to the whole ‘seasonal’ part of this, I genuinely was freezing whilst taking these photos… that’s why there aren’t that many to look at (sorry!). But, that doesn’t take away the charm of the outfit. As I mentioned in one of my recent YouTube videos, I’ve been loving 90s style right now, so statement oversized jumpers have been ma’ thang’. I love them! I’ve paired up with Adolescent Clothing, which meant they sent me over their super cool Photo Bomb jumper. I first spotted it on ASOS, and adore it. It’s made me fall in love with primary colours, and even white.

The skirt really complements the jumper, especially when you nicely tuck it in. I added my super crazy Dalmatian coat on top for an added layer… I really am a rebel! Mixing black and navy… who knew it could look okay? Monochrome really is a fail safe option for any outfit.

 In terms of accessories, I decided to play it simple. I’ve been tossing and turning over getting some Vagabonds for ages, and I finally caved and got them. I used to have a really similar ASOS pair, but these are definitely something different. They’ve got quite a high heel, but they’re balanced out with a platform for comfort. I know white isn’t the obvious choice to go for, but I love how they look. What do you think?

Another new piece into my wardrobe is my adorable pineapple necklace. I have been wanting one from And Mary for ages and I finally got the chance! It’s beautiful. The detail is incredible and I can’t stop staring at it when it’s around my neck. Ooh ooh! Who can spot my french manicure? I did it myself and I’m quite chuffed. Cute and simple, just how I like it!

To top it off, I thought I would treat you to a video! I’m going to do one per ‘CWTS’ post, and I hope you enjoy them. Just the outfit in video form so you can really see how it goes together. Let me know what you think and don’t forget to head over to my channel and subscribe 🙂

Spring Outfit 2: Topshop

By April 4, 2012 General

Here is another outfit from Topshop, just under £100. Quite pricey, but if you really want to look stylish out and about, look at this…

MOTO Tye Dye Jeans £45.00, Lips in Charmed £9.00, Peace Band Stack Rings £10.00, Spike & Square Bangles £10.00, MOTO Denim Zip Bralet £16.00, Mixed Charm Clip £8.50 TOTAL = £98.50

The 2 types of Denim (also a new trend) – the bralet and jeans – both have different styles, but if you add some accessories like these above, it will blend the 2 styles perfectly together. The lipstick colour makes a great statement but also keeps the colour of the Jeans.
