Jacket: New Look // Dress: Primark // Trainers: Adidas // Belt: ASOS // Bag: Mansur Gavriel

How is it only Wednesday? Payday is still a whole 2 days away & I'm currently having biscuits for dinner. I need it to be Friday so I can live like a queen for just one day. That's not too much to ask, surely? Also, I appear to have run out of everything at once & I need to stock up on moisturiser before I turn into a giant crocodile scale. The struggle is real, folks.

I've had this dress approximately a hundred years but I just can't bear to let it go. Horizontal stripes are my favourite & there's nothing like saying a big 'fuck you' to bullshit fashion rules. Simone Mariposa recently started a Twitter movement embracing body positivity & the right to wear whatever the hell you want without explanation. With everything going on in the world, it blows my mind that people are still so concerned with something as inconsequential as what somebody is wearing. Do you & mind your damn business.

Summer In The City

Jacket: New Look // Dress: Dorothy Perkins // Sandals: Topshop // Sunglasses: Primark

I think it's safe to say, sweat has been this week's hottest accessory & I have been owning it. I'm certainly not one to complain about the appearance of Summer but perhaps as a country we should invest in a little more air-con? Especially on public transport as there's really only so much torture one person can take.

Not going to lie, my week of Summer started off well but by Wednesday I started to run out of Summer clothes, by Thursday, my make-up consisted of just eyebrows & by Friday, I'd given up altogether. How's about that one, Craig David? If unlike me, you're wanting to look cute & you're looking to extend the lifespan of your make-up in these beaut temperatures, may I suggest picking up L'Oréal's Infallible Fixing Mist. 10/10 would recommend (not even promoting this, it's genuinely that good).

Now rather than go out & enjoy the sunshine, I'm going to crawl into bed & watch Netflix until payday. I didn't choose the broke life, the broke life chose me.

Enjoy the sunshine, lads

Pink Lemonade

Bomber: New Look // Longline T-Shirt: ASOS // Jeans: ASOS // Sandals: Topshop

Y'know when something looks bomb AF in your head but in reality you look like a mouldy potato? That would be this jacket. Imaginary me looked like a fabulous addition to the Pink Ladies, real me looks like I had a battle with a marshmallow and lost. On the upside, I've fallen in love with another pair of ASOS jeans so at least my legs will stay chic.

In more serious news, the atrocities in the world continue to horrify and astound me. After an incredible evening at the Leed's Black Lives Matter march, waking up to the news about Nice was heartbreaking. Thoughts and prayers will never be enough, but for most of us they're all we have. Stay safe, stay strong. We can't let hate win.
