Touch of Lilac



I felt like putting some lilacy bits in my hair, so that happened this morning... I don't know if it will last very long, or whether I will redo it when it does wash out, because it  took quite a long time and I am rather lazy.

I'm liking having colourful hair again though!

INSTA WEEK #11


I'm so annoyed I only got to post on my blog once this week.  I've been so busy with coursework, and Lewis hurt his knee really badly at training (American Football) on Tuesday and can't really walk, AND the weather has been awful.  I finally got round to taking outfit photos with my housemate and it was all wind and rain outside - awful weather conditions.  Hence the #currentmood photo.

The weather actually gives me so much rage when it's like this, how dare it ruin my plans!!!  Hopefully next week will be sunny.

I'M LOVING | FISHNETS UNDER JEANS


Roll Neck - Charity Shop
Mom Jeans - Topshop (Old)
Shoes - Topshop (Old)

I keep wearing fishnets underneath my jeans recently, I think it's such an awesome, grungy look.  I'm gonna have to hunt down some ripped white jeans, cos that's what I want to wear them under next.

What's everyone thinking of the 70's trend?  I don't think I'm going to be able to get on board with bell bottom jeans/trousers, they aren't something I've ever really been a fan of.  Although, flared sleeves I love for some reason.  I'm also really into the whole bohemian, hippie, flower child thing, but it's a look I've never been able to rock as well as some other people.  The 60's/70's is, and has been for years, my favourite era ever, and I am constantly wishing I was a teen in those days, but I'm more of a 90's/early 2000's dresser.  Imagine the Spice Girls and Kurt Cobain having a clothes baby - my wardrobe is the outcome.  I'd totally be part of the hippie movement though - peace.
