River Island, has anyone checked them out recently? They seem to have nailed it for SS16 and I'm loving their mix of prints, fresh white hues and dreamy denims. I've turned into a total ASOS addict recently too, and both brands are completely killing it. Much as I love this look, I'm hopeful that with the promise of Spring blooming, this cream faux fur jacket won't be a staple for much longer. I HAD to snap up this bright pink lattice vest, a hot pink number I'm wearing backwards so that the slashed style gets a look-in. And can we talk about SS? Guys! Nearly time for the clocks to go forward! Nearly time for the blossom to babe out. For sunshine and those cocktails and that gorgeous SS wardrobe to stun and dazzle!
Ah, it's been ages since I sat down to blog properly. It's been doing my head in that I haven't blogged for so long. I miss it. In truth I just can't be one of these people that blogs relentlessly hard if I'm not feeling it, I need to believe that the content I put out is unique and meaningful enough for creation. I've also had a really manic time since February. I was away for my birthday celebrations, I've been doing more hours at work, I'm writing a book which is a bloody long process, I promise you. It also means I need to get into a good headspace whilst writing it, and draw myself into the characters, their emotions, feelings, goings-on, dramas, day to day lives etc. I spend hours thinking about it (the book) and thinking about them, (the characters) so much so that I feel like I know them personally in real life, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I've been trying to write and focus on the book but it's also meant I've had no time for soinspo which sucks. I will make enough hours, dammit.
Fear not though, I'm looking towards big things for the blog, especially come Spring/Summer. I did my AW related checklist: get a jazzy gold layout, print business cards, attend Blognix. Now for some summer soinspo! I'd like to steer my focus towards adding a few new elements to the blog; namely make-up looks on Instagram and some Saturday chatty vlogs. As well as buying up half of ASOS's summer stock and doing some tropical shoots of course. Stating the obvious and all.
