vintage florals and a duster coat

I don't think I ever wore a midi skirt until this summer. I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about them, but I do know that I love this print. I picked up this beautiful skirt in my local vintage shop, the vintage corner, see more about that here, for just a tenner. The weather has been a bit dull lately, except one miraculously sunny day, so I paired it with black pieces which gives it a slightly autumnal feel. Admit it, we're all pretty excited to wear coats and boots again, aren't we? Speaking of coats, this is my new duster coat which I am completely in love with. And would you believe I picked it up for just £17? It's actually remarkably similar to topshop's version which retails at around £70. Get in!

pink hair and temporary tattoos

I went temporarily wild. I used hair chalk to dip-dye my hair pink and got a temporary tattoo of a compass on my thigh. This is wild for me guys, believe me. The hair chalk craze really had me interested and seeing as I'd never dye my whole head (I've been advised against it for naturally multi-toned hair, but I did dip-dye navy in year 12 for a short while) I thought I'd give it a go. I really wanted to try body shop's blue chalk but seeing as it's sold out pretty much everywhere, I resorted to ebay and ended up getting both colours for under a tenner, woohoo! The pink was a test, it was so vibrant when it first went on, but once I brushed it through and sealed with hairspray, it all looked a bit dull. I admit I was underwhelmed, but hey it was fun. I want to try blue at Leeds festival next week, although it does go everywhere...

How cute is this dress?! My mum was having a bit of a wardrobe clear out and handed it down to me, it's so perfect, I love it. Ah yes, the tattoo. I think fashion should be fun and playful. I want a tattoo but have a ridiculously strong phobia of needles, so until I get that sorted, I thought why not play around with some temporary ones? TTTattoo kindly got in touch and I fell for the compass, I'm not sure why, I just really love it. They have tonnes of cool designs, my second choice would have been the UFO. So space grunge of me. If you want the fun without the commitment, take a look at their site, their banner is in my sidebar! You can also design your own if you like, which is awesome.

my second blogiversary

It's been a whole two years since I started my blog and I've loved every minute of it! Like my first blogiversary post today I'm looking back at the past year, including some of my personal favourite posts, what I gather your favourite posts are, and some amazing moments.

Thankyou all so much for reading my blog, following me on social media and sharing my content, it always makes me smile. To think I started this blog whilst still in school as a way of getting into university and now it's a huge part of my uni work and is even helping me find jobs in the industry, amazing! To be clear, I've never considered blogging as a career, for me it is a hobby, but it's a way of building a career too. So your support really does make a difference, thankyou.

I know people say the blogging world has changed, and it has, but I'm happy with my little space on the internet where we can all connect and talk about pretty stuff and ignore the hoo-ha. Here's to another year of blogging! *cheers and clinks glasses*

Good vibes guys
