So today I went out for a little catch up with the lovely Tom who is a very dear tumblr friend of mine. We’re like exactly the same person when it comes to taste in music as well as our whole aesthetic. We went for a coffee at Starbucks for a little bitching session as well as a catch up on life. After we finished our little bitching session we went on a lovely walk in the sunshine and had a photography session against a gorgeous floral bush. Equipped with our Instax and Tom with his Polaroid we thought it would be a fun photo session. The whole aesthetic of the photo session was very Lana Del Rey vibe coming from it and I thought what a perfect way to showcase my outfit that I had on. So the outfit I was wearing you might have seen before in a previous post when I went to Disneyland minus the roll neck as it was too warm for that. My Zara jacket looked in place with this floral background it just looked stunning. Teamed up with my new white sweatshirt which you will see again in another photo shoot I’m planning on Monday. The sweatshirt was purchased from Ebay for £5.99! We enjoyed out little photo shoot and we definitely are going to do more of them as we both love photography and fashion so it’s perfect!
Just a quick post to keep you updated about my trip. Excuse the bad quality photograph, I had to take this with my brother’s phone camera due to my camera being used for this! So I’m all packed and ready for my holiday to Disneyland Paris tomorrow. I’ve got all my essentials ready and at hand within my hand luggage. I’m actually so excited as this is my first holiday in 12 years and without my parents also.Though I’m on holiday I shall be doing outfit of the day to showcase my fashion and style, but I will not be blogging while I’m there. I shall wait until my return home to blog about each day. As well as going to Disneyland Paris I am also going to Paris for the day for a big shopping trip and to sight see, so I’ve made sure my outfit for there is on point. So Au revoir for now and I’ll see you on the flip side!
So for the past few weeks I’ve been trying to find ” Perfect Purchases” for my holiday to Disney. I’ve been trying to buy practical yet fashionable items that’ll go together, and what better way than top shop monochrome.
I needed a new bag to go around Paris with so I love a good satchel, they’re trendy, vintage looking and just easy to use. However I found a Satchel backpack which would look even better with my look for Paris. It might not be real leather but for £24 it’s a real good buy. I brought the bag from Amazon and it came within 2 days which is super fast. It comes with a shoulder strap also in case I ever wanted to wear it as a normal satchel bag. I wish I could alter the straps a little more as the bag hangs a little low for my liking but it’s a beautiful bag and I love it!
Another bag I needed for my holiday was a holdall. ASOS have a wonderful range of holdalls but I needed to have a black one to co-ordinate with my outfit. My ASOS holdall was £35 and is a great size, I’ll definitely be able to get all my gadgets,chargers and bits and pieces in. Again like the satchel bag pack it comes with a shoulder strap in case I get tired of carrying it around and just want to throw it over my shoulder.
A neoprene jumper is something I’ve wanted to a while now. I’ve got a neoprene coat and I’ve always longed to have a neoprene jumper. I love the style and the fit of neoprene, I think it just looks so expensive. I brought my jumper from eBay for £12 however they have stopped doing them now. So I’m so glad that I’ve snapped mine up while it was around.
Something now I’ve never really bothered with and that’s a wallet. But because I’m going on holiday I thought I better buy one to stick all my money and cards in just in case. eBay is a gem if you’re looking for a wallet or purse as they’re so cheap. Mine has lots of space to put cards and notes and even has 2 slots to put change into. For £4 you can’t go wrong really.
My favourite Purchase of the year. My Instax Polaroid. I’ve had so much fun using this. £69 off eBay, it comes in different colours. I’m a plain Jane and wanted a colour that’d go with everything so I went for the white (Kinda wishing I went for the black) I brought the case for it separately which cost an additional £10 but I’d rather it be protected and safe then out in the open. I’ll put some sample pictures in that I’ve taken so far. What I’m doing is taking photographs with my friends and then getting them to sign them but when I go to Disneyland I’m going to take pictures with my favourite Disney characters and then get them to sign them at the bottom of the picture. It’s a cute design and I just love it so much.
I’ve wanted some high-waisted trousers for a while now and I could never find a good place to get any. Along comes ASOS and I find about 20 pairs that I love. But these high-waisted peg leg fitting high-waisted trousers are just what I’ve wanted. They are women’s so I struggled to figure out what size I was, I brought a size 8 but I could have got away with a 6 but they had sold out when I brought them.. They go with everything I put them with and we’re so cheap. I got them on a discount price of £24 when they should have been £30, which is another reason I love them as they’re a bargain.
