sportswear

Most unpredictable post on tie-dye-eyes of all time? Yep, probably. After eating about four tins of quality street over Christmas and my love for a bit of sugar, I've decided it's time I should probably exercise. With my scoliosis, I can't do much, even running is advised against, (oh no, what a shame ;)) but I'm going to try to do some bits, even if it's just getting back into the swing of yoga.

And we all know that nothing motivates you to work out more than some nice new sportswear, don't we? I'm a bit of a sportswear novice (could you tell?) but I'm already really impressed with these Nike pieces from JD and Millets. The leggings are super warm and they're all so comfortable, I actually didn't want to take them off. What is happening?! Stay tuned to see if I actually get out of this onesie I'm currently wearing and make it to the beach to do some exercise...

rollneck, stripes and new balance

These are some really staple pieces in my wardrobe lately, and when combined they made one of the cosiest outfits you could imagine. I did slip on some velvet leggings underneath for uni, but it was a disaster. Slippy velvet, bunched up pants, just, no. Take my advice and stick to normal leggings for layering.

trend alert: drape front blouses

After having a little online window shop (as always), I noticed a certain silhouette cropping up again and again: the drape front blouse. Whilst this might not be a new shape, it's available in fresh new spring colours and stripes. A lot of stripes this season aren't your bog-standard breton-esqué stripe, but instead having a mixture of thick and thin stripes, sometimes in no particular order or even different colours. Another excuse to add to your striped top collection!

I'd style these blouses with a high-waisted bottom half to avoid the draped fabric giving you a bit of a tummy, maybe a pencil skirt with a slight slit in faux leather or suede with some pointy courts, a high-waisted pair of skinnies or flares complete with floppy hat or some peg trousers and loafers for the office. 

Will you be wearing a drape front blouse this season? If so, which is your favourite?
