Following on from my recent love of styling tailored pieces, within my wardrobe, I've decided to mix in a bit of a 'sporty vibe' into today's look with the addition of my nike's and checkered trousers. Needless to say that the checkered trouser x nike combo. is one that I'm often reaching for, as my go-to.

Styling a whole outfit in muted tones has become something which I've started to experiment with more and more, especially with the warmer months. As well as being a switch up from my usual all black / dark outfits, there is something about styling a look like this with a pair of 'sliders' that instantly transforms it to a more casual set-up.

As of late the humble blazer has become an essential in my day-to-day wardrobe, as it is a piece that is extremely versatile to style, but it can also instantly transform a fairly casual looking outfit into something a little more 'put together'.

It's an item that is extremely easy to source second hand, as most vintage/charity shops will stock some sort of blazer suit. Which means you can quite easily build up a collection of the item, fairly inexpensively without the need to sacrifice on quality. Because of this it has become an item that I'm always on the lookout for on my frequent 'secondhand' shopping trips, as there is always a bargain to be had.

This has definitely become one of my go-to outfits when I want to inject some colour into my daily style, as its pretty apparent that I only seem to wear black 99.9% of the time...

These red flare trousers are ones' which I have featured on the blog before, but after a sudden spur of inspiration (and the gracing of some sunshine and warm weather) I decided to chop off a few inches of the length to give them an instant update.

Basically, I was longing for a pair of cropped wide legged trousers, but instead of going down the 'easy' route of purchasing a pair and obvs. being a student, I wanted to be thrifty with an item that I already own but hardly wear, that could be instantly updated into something that will see me through the warmer months. Needless to say there's no regrets here, as I've been wearing them too often to count since

As someone whose a 'living at home' student, and does a majority of their work at their desk, the workspace is one of those places which I spend a lot of my time at. Ultimately the space has to work for you, as if it quickly turns into an area which you despise working in, then your productivity levels will plummet. I've experienced this on numerous occasions, and my advice to get out of this 'rut' (so be it) for me is to switch it up and make it an area which you enjoy working in.

I personally began to do this by firstly moving the position of my desk, as someone who I would say is 'light sensitive' I'm always trying to maximise the light in my room. So by doing this quick desk switch around, into an area where the morning sun rays fall, has definitely began to improve my productivity.

Another thing is to spruce up the area with a few new homeware accessories, that needn't be expensive. I decided to fix up mine with the help of the Old English Company, a brand who specialise in all things homeware and stationary. There truly is nothing like some new pretty office stationary to uplift your mood, in tow with motivational banner flags and adorable mug coasters.

There is something quite novelty about owning an item that has been personalised for you, especially if it comes in handbag form. Kipling are now offering for you to personalise your very own "Art Essential" hand bag, with your name or initials (like I did!) in a wide range of fonts and colour ways, to add your very own stamp to piece. The bag itself is one I know I'm going to get A LOT of use out of, especially come Florida in June, as it can fit both my laptop and camera bag in whilst still having room for those much needed travel essentials - moisturiser, lavender oil (life changing) + toothbrush/paste.  It is also pretty nifty, as it can collapse into a conveniently sized 'top handle' tote, for carrying smalller 'everyday' things.

With layering season in full spring, it was only a matter of time that I was going to feature one of my go-to roll neck and shirt combo's on the blog. This particular shirt was thrifted last summer on one of (the many) goodwill pilgrimages. Me and my sister couldn't get enough of the bargains on offer, queue returning this June with empty suitcases in tow.  It may on the rail look like an ordinary 'work style' shirt but the styling combinations for such an item are virtually endless, and make it an item which can be worn all year round.
