Summer OOTD a Collaboration with Being Chantal

Well, you have to have interested in fashion of course. I was thinking perhaps an ootd? Summer or winter. (Depending on your country) I’m feeling a bit spicy, like blowing up my creativeness. SO, if you are up for it email me: beingchantal@gmail.com PS: This is for blogpost or youtube 🙂

via FASHION COLLAB ANYONE? — Being Chantal

This beautiful girl is Chantal and I have been following her blog and YouTube for a long long time! Chantal posts on WordPress and YouTube about a variety of things such as outfit of the day posts, look books, self help posts and cooking posts (all of which make me hungry as they look super yummy!) so when Chantal was looking for people to do collaborations with i knew i had to jump at this chance!! So today I will be showing you guys how i style jeans for summer and head on over to BEINGCHANTAL (link at the top of page) to see how she will be styling leggings for summer which i am very much looking forward to as i have various pairs of leggings and no idea how to style them so please please please check her blog out!! Edit: Chantal’s post will be live tomorrow 🙂 ❤

 

Here is how i am styling jeans this summer i hope you enjoy 🙂

x

Pair with flowy fabrics

If i am wearing “heavy” material on the bottom such as denim I will pair them with a nice chiffon/silk/cotton top that’s more breathable and helps keep you cool. I have paired this high-waisted pair from primark with a lace bralet also from primark and this cute sun patterned chiffon wrap blouse from Marie curie cancer research charity shop.

Adjust the length

I like to roll my jeans up in the summer to create different lengths not only does this create a different style but it also helps to keep you cool!!!

Accessories!!

Think about what accessories and footwear to pair your jeans with to help keep you cool and finish off the look, I added my black mule sandals that i got for 99p from barnardos (originally office) my floppy black sunhat black velvet choker and some primark sunglasses.

Come back tomorrow for TWO posts

Diy embroidered t-shirt 

Hello 🙂 today I’m sharing with you a t-shirt that i custamised using embroidery 🙂

So I recently binge watched series 1 of stranger things and I am now eagerly awaiting October for series 2!! I really wanted a stranger things t-shirt but hadn’t found one I liked that I was willing to spend alot of money on, so I thought why not create my own? I went onto Pinterest to get some inspiration and found this picture

This is from wearetheweirdo-s.tumblr.com

I thought this is it this is what I’ll make into my t-shirt design 🙂

I started off with a plain t-shirt(that needs ironing!!) from primark £2.80 and marked it where I wanted the string of fairy lights and where the letters would go…..

I then added my embroidery hoop and started work…

Creating the fairy lights….

And here it is 🙂 so in an episode will’s mum has strung up fairy lights and painted the alphabet under the fairy lights in order to communicate with him,whilst speaking to him he spells out run so I decided to make the R,U and N stand out to show this 🙂 I am so happy with how this turned out 🙂 x

My life story….in a shoe 👟

Sixteen years old, shy, unconfident but happy. Alternative is the style pigeon hole my peers have labelled me or as you may know it…”goth” skinny black or grey jeans black h&m hoody and my black Dr Martens boots. They were my first love but that’s for another day. I needed some more convinient shoes (anyone whose worn Dr martens knows the struggle!) So one day shopping for new shoes I saw them, there they were in an array of colours and styles low top high top knee high…..they were perfect. I went inside the shop and parted with my money walking out of the shop with the thin black box that housed my new love….converse!!

My old pair did well, they walked on Cornish sands,ran through fields,took many seaside trips,danced through performing arts exams,walked the school corridors, they were worn with jeans,dungarees, skirts,dresses,tights,frilly socks,bare sandy feet. They were my trusty gorgeous babes and they served me well for 10 long years…..sadly they have passed on to shoe heaven 😥 but don’t be discouraged friends no no, converse.com came to the rescue!! This is not a sponsored post…boy I wish it was! This is my genuine opinion and I’ve parted with my own cash!! I decided to treat myself to a new pair (I’ve got a pay rise and decided to treat myself) I wanted another trusty pair of original black converse, well if you signed up to their email you got sent a 25%off code!! So yay! I got a new pair sent and delivered for £33!! Here they are the loves of my life…..now and forever a converse girl (I do love me some vans though!!)
