Jeans/shorts and tee is a combo I wouldn't usually have on the blog because, too me, I just find it a little boring. I wear cool oversized tee's like this one with skinny jeans on comfy/lazy days, and have done for a while now, so I don' really see it as anything special. Buuuuuuttttt, with a neck tie and chunky heeled shoes it's a whole different story. 

I haven't really been on the neck tie trend up until now. Apart from chokers I don't really wear jewellery, so a neck tie is another option to make an outfit a lil bit more interesting.

Hair Rings | 3 Ways To Wear



Last summer I was completely obsessed with hair wraps/braids, but this year I've found something slightly different to satisfy my hair decor needs... hair rings. I did think that this were a relatively new trend as I've been seeing them all over Instagram recently, but further research (Pinterest) has shown me that these have actually been a thing for quite a while - glad I've finally discovered them. They'll look so rad at festivals, although I do feel they'd all be lost by the end of the weekend....

I've only really seen them being worn in french/dutch braids, so I thought I would come up with a couple of different ways that they could be worn.

Space Buns

No braids here, I simply dotted the rings into the buns and throughout the surrounding hair!

Half Up Half Down Braids

This is a hairstyle I have been particularly loving at the moment - the classic half up ponytail, but with a couple of small braids each side to make everything a lil' more interesting. I added the hair rings to the biggest braids.

I couldn't not include it... this is how I've seen them being worn all over Pinterest and Instagram, and I love it! I made the braid a bit messier by pulling all of the sections in it.

A bit of a different look for me I feel, seeing as I never wear blazers, but I found this gem of a vintage beaut in a charity shop a while back and it has not seen much of the outside world since. I really like the contrast between tailored and casual, so I paired the blazer with a simple roll neck bodycon, and my staple of recent times, some trainers.
