My Style: Public Outfit Display of Affection*

By March 6, 2016 My Style

The reason this outfit is having a public display of affection is because this is probably the most public My Style outfit shoot I’ve ever done. There were people looking for sure which definitely makes you feel a little weird but what can I say? This is the time of the internet, you should know the drill by now! I also just really love this outfit at the moment so it should have some affection, right? I hope you like it too!

I think this outfit sums up a lot of what I’ve been wearing recently. I am obsessed with blouses (I now own six – four long sleeve, two short sleeved) and they’re perfect for this time of the year where we’re not really sure what’s going on. It really messes with your mind because you think “Ooh, it looks lovely and warm and sunny today” and then you walk outside and regret your outfit choice immediately.

That means layering is a go to option, especially with sweatshirts and jumpers, which I also have a growing collection of. I especially love this one which I’ve had for a couple of years now (which you can probably work out due to the very scraggy loose threads around the arms) and it’s still going strong. It works perfectly with every style… grunge, minimalist, khaki seventies etc… it’s a very versatile piece, surprisingly!

In terms of the trousers, well let’s just say…. I AM IN LOVE. They’re very Valentino inspired, and although I don’t usually gravitate towards knock-offs, I absolutely loved these and I couldn’t resist them when they went into the sale. They’re so gorgeous and the style fits like a glove. I can also imagine wearing them on a summer evening so I’m sure they’ll work perfectly throughout the year.

To complete everything, I usually leave my blouse hanging loose for that kind of casual vibe (it also gives me an excuse for skipping out on ironing…). My hat ties in the black from the jumper, where the navy of the trousers clash and my shoes are just doing their usual awesome thing. Honestly, I only wear these and my Dr Martens. You don’t see me in any other shoes at all… no. joke.

NOW PLAYING:
Sing For The Wind (Roo Panes) 🎶


To finish off this post, here’s a little sneak peek of what I’ve been listening to recently. I’ve enjoyed adding these little elements to my posts so far this year and I hope you have been too! I love the “Little Giants” album by Roo Panes. Super relaxing but still some nice sing-a-long tunes too. “Because love’s a journey of a lifetime… and where you finish isn’t where you start…”

Floral & Random Hair Crown Collection + Video

By July 4, 2014 My Style

If you haven’t been following this blog for very long, or maybe you just haven’t been paying attention (rude… jokes!), then you may not know that I am a floral (and random) hair crown, addict. I buy and make way too many… I probably have a fairly small ‘hair crown collection compared to some, but it’s slowly getting bigger month by month… so today I’m here to show you every one I own… 

Do you have any floral crowns? Let me know in the comments!
floral and random hair crown collection beauxoxo accessories diy asos claire'sfloral and random hair crown collection beauxoxo accessories diy asos claire's…maybe that’s a lie because I did receive 2 new ones in the post recently (thank you Claire’s!), but this is the majority. I even made a short and snazzy video (this features all of my collection) to go along with them, aww! I have stretchy, alice band, DIY and pom pom ones so it really is a huge variety! I love them all though, I especially loves the ones I make myself because they are 100% unique to me 🙂 I just think hair accessories can really complete an outfit, especially if it is fairly simple. Plus… on hot days when you’re hair isn’t exactly ‘clean’ they can be the best distraction!

FYI, both the DIY ones are made with false flowers, a hot glue gun and a hair band! So simple to do, it’s just common sense 🙂

This is one of my most recent ones to my collection, and it’s made by moi! I really like it because the flowers are super oversized, and make a pretty cool statement! I added in some greenery I had left over from another floral crown (scroll down…) and I love it! I feel like it is very Frida Khalo-esque and goes with a lot more than you would expect, plus for £2, you can’t really go wrong!

I saw this on ASOS ages and ages ago, it went from £10 to about £8, and then when it finally reached £3 very recently, I decided it was about time it became mine! It’s actually a lot smaller than I had anticipated, but I love it nonetheless. The pom poms are so cute and fluffy and actually look quite retro, so I’m excited to style it up! You could easily DIY this one, but because it was on the site for so long, the price was justifiable in the end!

Claire’s surprised me with a package a while back and inside it was this! I never thought I would like a crown like this because it has a wire band which I tend to stay clear of, but I’m coming around to the idea! I have to say it’s a little awkward to wear, but the colour looks really nice and it should be good for all year round, which is a plus! I think this would look awesome on blonde hair… what do you think?

Another DIY, and probably my most favourite of my collection, is this beauty! I just adore the way it looks! I found the flowers at a market and I have been trying to hunt down the same guy again, but no luck! I think buying false flowers online can be way more expensive, so if you can find a local florist who sells them, then you should definitely get them from there! Also, make sure you get some greenery too, it adds a more realistic touch rather than just a bunch of flowers all in the same colour, I think that’s why this is my favourite!

I hope you liked this post and the pictures… it was so funny doing them haha! Sorry if I don’t update my blog lots and lots over the next few weeks, it’s holiday time now with our family so obviously I’m spending time with them! Thanks so much guys! 🙂
