Hello lovely people and welcome back to my blog!
Last year I decided to make some changes and the main thing I wanted to do on my blog was post more photos of me, so here are some more snaps, of me.
I wanted to keep things super casual because right now that’s what my style is, nothing complicated and something I can easily throw on.
I don’t know why but at the moment basics are just my go-to, I mean who doesn’t love a basic? It’s summer here so I’m trying to let my body breathe but also look fashionable, which is hard; especially when I’m envious of everyone wearing coats and jeans.
I was always that person who hated denim skirts, but since getting one it’s really changed my style – I always swap denim shorts for a skirt, it’s more comfortable and always looks cute. I find that skirts are always easy if you want that dressed up look without committing and dressing up.
I still have my trusty summer “straw” bag which I use everyday, I still recommend everyone getting one – you can fit your whole life into it, BUT, I’m also obsessing over sunglasses at the moment. I mean I’ve always loved them but I recently bought a different cat eye shape and it’s so cute – you would be seeing them everywhere because they’re so trendy, but anything cat eye and I’m sold!
I bought some espadrilles from Zara a few days ago and they’re currently my go-to shoe – yes they look a bit like tea towels but they’re so comfy it’s ridiculous. They’re such a good statement as well, especially when you’re living in your basics and need that statement piece; which we all know I’m about.

I would love to know your thoughts on basics? Are you currently all about keeping it simple, or all about statement pieces? I’m currently in a chilled period with my style and just want to keep everything simple.
