SIT BACK





After watching UK hip hop due Frankie Stew & Harvey Gunn last night, I woke up feeling incredibly chilled out and it's fair to say this outfit is perfect for a relaxed Saturday. I love my flares from Forever21 but I don't wear them enough, however, with this new jumper that arrived today in my PrettyLittleThing order, it's going to be easy to chuck on this combination all the time during the colder months.

I love the flares and baggy/long top trend that around at the moment, layering with clothes of the same shape is really flattering and incredibly comfy in this case. The thick cable knit jumper itself is going to be a staple in my wardrobe this A/W. The chunkiness and oversized fit to this jumper makes it super warm but easy to layer up. The high neck also gives a really stylish feel and paired with some big hoop earrings gives a mix of 70's/90's vibes.
I added my white Reebok trainers but I'd easily pair a pair of Converse or animal print ankle boots with this look as well.

EXPLORING PRAGUE

Hello! Or Ahoj, in Czech..

From March 21st to the 24th I was able to visit the beautiful city of Prague in the Czech Republic for a college media studies trip. I went with a group of 14 other students including my boyf, we stuck together during the trip which was nice to be able to go and explore by ourselves, but by the end of  we were friends with the rest of the people that went too. I wanted to share with you a few photos and tell you about all the exciting things we got up to in the city..

DAY ONE:  we simply arrived to our hotel and straight away got a tram to the main town and explored Old Town which is home to many incredible buildings and architecture, Easter Markets and the famous clock. 



DAY TWO:  An early start was required as we got the coach to the Barrandov Film studies. This was such a cool experience as we went on a tour around the sound studios, museum and the costume and props areas. Barrandov is one of the biggest studios in Europe and so many big Hollywood films are set here. In the image below you can see the massive warehouse-looking building where the whole of Narnia was filmed - none of those movies were filmed outside! The floor can open up and be filled with water and it's completely soundproof so directors have control over the noises in their production. James Bond was another big film name that was filmed in these buildings - apparently Tom Cruise used one of these huge spaces as a personal gym when on set here in Prague. 
After the studios we went to explore more the main town and got to some shopping and drinking too..

(everything is so much cheaper, it's more expensive to buy a Coke than a beer in Prague, bevvies are pretty much a quid!)




OUTFIT DEETS:
Dungarees -  ASOS
Top - ASOS
Coat - Primark
Shoes - Converse



DAY THREE: Our third day consisted of visiting a special effects museum of old tricks that directors used in film, that was really interesting then we went over the Charles Bridge and saw the changing of the guards at this really pretty political building with old churches and more Easter markets round the back. We also managed to grab a Starbucks with an amazing view of the older parts of town. In the evening we saw a BlackLight theatre show which was interesting to say the least. 











DAY FOUR: On our last day we went to some small markets local to our hotel and then went into town for some more shopping and drinking.. We went to a James Dean style bar and many other cute cafes in the square which was really fun. After a few drinks we stumbled ( not literally ) to a mirror maze and kaleidoscope cinema, I don't have any good photos from this but it was so so fun and I would definitely do this again, I would 10/10 recommend.  I managed to pick up some bits from Inglot and ventured round Sephora. I also got some super comfy but stylish black trousers which will be featured on the blog very soon. 

I absolutely loved Prague, cheap drinks, cheap food and the most scenic and beautiful I've visited in Europe. 
I can't wait to revisit this city and can't wait to explore more of Europe in the future.

Have you been the Prague? Where would you love to visit the most in Europe?

THE FILA TEE











The sportswear trend is one of my favourites, it instantly adds a cool retro vibe to an outfit and although this Fila t-shirt is new and bought on ASOS, the colourblock style and vibrant colours make it a really fun piece. It looks great styled with demin so I've been pairing it with my dungarees, denim pinafore, mom jeans and this cute denim skirt I bought a few months back from Bershka. 
I added my vintage Nike track jacket that I picked up in Brighton last year for a decent £20 and I can't wait to wear it in the slightly warmer transitional weather and at festivals this summer as a nice cover up in the evenings. 
To convey that retro vibe that the contrasting red, blue and white tshirt has I simply added my vegan DMs to make the shirt the focus of the outfit.

SIMPLY SUNDAY










Buying clothes that are slightly too big but being too stingy to pay to send them back is a current occurrence, nevertheless I'm still going to wear this pinafore religiously. I've never shopped at Forever21 before so I wasn't sure on the sizing, however for the 20% student discount and the fairly decent quality of the items - I'm impressed.  
I paired the dark wash pinafore with a very simple black high neck top from ASOS and my slightly very muddy docs to create a minimalistic outfit. I'd add my camel coat with this, it's way too cold out and it would add a smarter touch to the look.

Top - ASOS
Shoes - DM

One very stressful week to go until half term, lots more outfit posts to come though.
*FYI there was a storm last night hence why my background looks atrocious, apologies..

RINGER & DUNGAREES






My Christmas outfit considered of the new pieces I got on the day from ASOS. I'd been lusting over a black pair of dungarees for ages so I was so happy when I unwrapped these - however I may be exchanging for a smaller size. These cord dungarees are so comfy and so cute with such a 90's feel. I also hinted to Santa that this ringer tee also from ASOS would go really well with this outfit and I wasn't wrong. I love this tee with mom jeans and my denim skirt as well, it's so easy to style and make an outfit look really relaxed but cool. I adore the 90's look this outfit has and with added converse and gold hoops this combination is going to be another college go-to.
Now I am on the hunt for a grey coat that could compliment these dungers nicely and keep the look neutral but warm. A new ASOS wishlist may be coming up soon as I now have over 400 items in my saved list!!
