The animal print trend has been around for the past couple of seasons, and despite having a penchant for the ol' leopard print. I have never really ventured out into other exotic animal prints, that is until I came across these snakeskin flared trousers. As well as being one the comfiest pairs of 'extra looking' trousers I own, I have kinda fallen hard for the print. Being such a staple piece, you can simple just pair them with a black roll neck for a complete outfit and you're done! Definitely my type of styling piece to be fair.

Check trouser have been long on my wishlist for the past couple of months and despite my wardrobe being one belonging to a part-time goth (with 90% of it black) I wanted to opt for a lighter check print for these particular trousers, especially with it being the month of spring.

The lace bodysuit is a new discovery of mine and is an item which I see myself styling more and more for casual daytime looks (and even nighttime looks). The bodysuit as a whole has been a wardrobe staple, and has seen me through countless spring / summer seasons over the past couple of years. But for some reason (unbeknown to me) I never really ventured out into the 'lace' category - that is until now. They're the type of style which I got to admit adds that extra 'sassy-ness' to an outfit, without being too OTT when paired with a simple pair of high waisted pale wash jeans. With the warmer months on the horizon, this new discovery might be one that I'll be styling up come spring (and when it's not below 10Âșc).

One of my new favourite styling techniques this season is wearing cardigans buttoned up and tucked into a high waisted skirt or pair of trousers, and even laying said cardigan over the top of a roll-neck for more of a 'classic' look. For me this styling technique stemmed from re-watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer and reliving my childhood - obsessed doesn't even begin to explain it (I was the kid with Buffy Top Trump cards and a Buffy chess set complete with cast member figurines). Anyway Buffy obsession aside, and style notes re-taken the classic cardigan has taken a whole new meaning in my wardrobe, and is definitely an item with endless styling opportunities.

Ever since coming across a certain Jane Birkin outfit that featured the style icon sporting a fur jacket with her beloved basket bag, a cropped faux fur addition has been top on my list for these colder months.  So when I picked this one up *on sale* after having my eye on it for the past couple of months, I knew I had recreate a Jane Birkin inspired look for the blog.

So Valentines day is next month and I thought it would be fun idea to compile two looks for a night out, that I would opt for, with one being a look that is an *amped up* version of my classic go-to and another being a tad more on the 'glamour' side- a side I don't often experiment with styling wise. The classic go-to is obviously the high-waisted black flares and bodysuit combo, but I've decided instead of playing it safe like I often do, to mix in this gorgeous lace bodysuit as a subtle nod to the 'lingerie as outerwear' trend that I'm kinda into experimenting more come the warmer months.
For look numero 2. and as a dedicated fan of the over-the-knee boot trend and all round style in general. What better way to take these boots into a nighttime look then by adding a heel and pairing them with an oversized blazer dress, to embody that 'effortless', thrown together feel that I'm here for and has definitely become my 2019 styling approach.

Personal style for me, has been an ever evolving 'thing' which to be fair is pretty evident on the blog archives. It is also one of those 'things' that I'm constantly trying to move forward with and adapt with age, as to be honest I'm (obviously) not going to go for the same style choices as my 17 year old self would as a now 23 year old. One thing I have learn't over the years, through using my blog to document this is that I've learnt not too overthink the way I approach styling as much as I used too, and to not fall into the trap of whether the outfit I'm documenting is 'in fashion'. From doing so I've learn't to literally just go with the flow with my likes and dislikes (fashion wise), and I honestly feel like I've subconsciously refined my style with this new approach.
