How I'm falling in love with my wardrobe all over again.

NGL, I'm kinda digging trying to fall in love with my wardrobe all over again, not only is it better on my back account [minus those few last purchases I made, here's looking at you Forever 21 jacket, but we will get to that later.] but I'm rediscovering clothes I haven't worn in years, purely because they were most likely hidden under a mountain of newly bought stuff and impulse buys. I've also managed to buy a minimal amount of stuff for my upcoming holiday to Zante, a week today and I"ll be jetting off to all the sun, low key having a huge panic about the plane but let's just pretend that's not happening. . . . whereas ordinarily, I would have bought a whole new holiday wardrobe. 10 points to me for resisting and buying stuff that I needed not what I wanted which includes a bikini [ya gals got bigger since she last needed one nearly 5 years ago. . . .] A watermelon top because it was a watermelon top and a dress for my cousin's wedding. I'd say for a former gal with a shopping problem, that ain't half bad.

 I spent most of the weekend packing for a week away in the sun, and I rediscovered some hidden gems underneath stacks of barely worn clothes. Let me introduce you to something that was well loved back in 2014: My monochrome ''animal'' print top. Not like leopard print or whatever but actual aniamls. . . . in print. I saw my forever Bae Hayley in it for a shoot with Kerrang and well basically I wanted it because of reasons. Putting it back on today for the first time in literally years reminded me why I loved this top so much. It's the right kinda ''cropped'' length and super flattering, plus the prints really fun too. I predict this summer is gonna see me in this crop alottt. Still racking my brain to find a reason why I stopped wearing it. 

Ok, so the jacket, as well as being really frigging annoying [algorithm anyone?] Instagram is also mega dangerous when it comes to tempting you to shop. One of my blogger faves Zoe London posted about this jacket on her IG story from when she was at Slam Dunk. I did that thing where I saw something I really really liked and then that was it, it was all I could think about. I lasted 2 whole days before I caved a bought it which is pretty good going as I's usually bought it the moment I saw it [price and bank account permitting of course] Now when it arrived, it wasn't as white as I thought it would be, more of a creamy colour and I wasn't sure how I felt about it until I tried it on and all faith was restored. I love me a good back slogan, particularly on jackets plus this also has added silver lighting bolts and a rough cut hem so basically, it was an all round winner for me and perfect for summer nights in Zante and the rest of summer in England. Of course, the culottes have come back out, TBH, they never really went away. . . .

  1. That jacket is pretty damn adorable! I really need to fall in love with my wardrobe again. I've started to hate everything so much that I'm tempted to just go out and spend all of my money on new clothes which is not a good idea when I have two trips and a course to pay for in the next two months ha

  2. I love this outfit! You look beyond cool in every photo you take! I completely know where you're coming from with trying to fall in love with your wardrobe. I've been trying to limit my spending and have been finding items of clothing I love that still have the tag on! 🙈
