This post has been a long time coming. I absolutely adore fashion blogs and in fact, this little space on the internet started out as just that and the first part of it's name (studs) came from a pair of beautiful studded shorts I picked up all those years ago. It's something I've wanted to bring back for the many years I haven't been doing it, and in fact, I think there were probably many times that I said I would but something would always get in the way and I just didn't.
Don't get me wrong, there have been a few appearances in the past few years. The Next Mother's Day post most notably but it hasn't been a regular occurrence since the days I used my parents spare room, a tripod and remote control to take posey outfit pictures against that plain white wall. If you go back far enough, you'll see what I mean.
I adore reading fashion blogs, in fact, some are my favourite blogs/vlogs/bloggers of all time, ahem Megan Ellaby I'm looking at you. Your style and images totally rock my world - and best of all, inspired me to create great content. I studied photography at University and so I wanted my content to be the best it could be, if I did finally seize the day and get back on the fashion blogger bandwagon.
All these years later, I grouped together with my absolute favourite Holly Rose Stones. She takes the most beautiful images and I was so excited to finally create something together, years after we first talked about it.
I am very much an outfit repeater, and this outfit or very similar has been my go-to for a long time. I'm forever matching a casual tee with leather jacket, jeans/skirt/plisse trousers and boots or trainers. It's comfortable and I absolutely adore the casual look of it.
The day before I shot these with Holly, I popped into a launch event with Garnier and I found out all about their new #SkinActivist campaign, the new launches and they gave me this super cute tee with the hashtag on it. I fell in love and I just had to wear it right away. I have an ever growing collection of t-shirts. Most are either vintage or band tees but I love it when they remind you of something and this one does just that. I'll be giving the new launches a go asap so I'm sure you'll see them featured on here soon.
WHAT I'M WEARING
Leather Jacket - All Saints
T-Shirt - Garnier for their #SkinActivist campaign but check out Rokit for similar tee's (if in doubt, go vintage)
Black Plisse Trousers - Topshop
Layering Chokers - Urban Outfitters
Bag - Village England
I absolutely adored shooting with Holly and I'm so excited to be getting back into fashion on here. Let me know if there's anything specific you'd like to see!
