To me, although I’ve never really had a black jacket, it’s definitely a wardrobe staple. I mean I’ve had leather jackets and all that, but to me, a black jacket is just timeless, but then so is a leather jacket . . but this isn’t a post about a leather jacket! I got this piece from Jigsaw and specifically chose this one as it’s more me, as black jacket’s go. I love the relaxed tailoring and loose fabric, I don’t think I’m for ready super sharp tailoring just yet though I am obsessed with Jigsaw’s tailoring section! I didn’t know how to style it when I first got it, I’m so used to more relaxed pieces that wearing a black jacket, though a wardrobe staple as discussed, seemed foreign to me. I love it with just the jeans and heels, it’s the perfect smart casual look and I’ll be styling it in plenty of different ways soon so keep an eye out! I’m loving mixing in more tailored pieces with my wardrobe, I feel like they’re timeless pieces that instantly make a piece look smart and pulled together. As my style develops I’m starting to realise the importance of investing in a few higher priced pieces that mix in well with some of my favourite high street pieces! See what I mean in my previous post about how jackets make anything look smart! These Public Desire heels are honestly uh-mazing. I’ve been lusting after these Topshop ones for a while so when PD brought out their own more affordable pair it was pretty much a no brainer. Just take a moment to appreciate the cuffs on those jeans. . . they deserve it. Shop The Look Shop my look by clicking on the images below!

Why not having many friends is a good thing

I sometimes feel like I have too many friends, throughout life we gain friends in everything we do. Every new job or school, going to university and moving to a new city all brings new friends and what happens to the old ones? If everyone were to stay in touch with every friend they’d ever make it would be exhausting. Basically you would have a hell of a lotta friends, and not too many good friends, this is why not having many good friends is a good thing! For me, I’ve started to realise since blogging and styling and social media-ing and god knows what else, that I just don’t have a lot of spare time. Bearing that in mind I’ve sort of decided to stop clinging on to friendships that died long ago, instead investing that time in the friends I love and who love me in return. I’m about to get soppy here, but me and my friends (my close friends) who I went to college with have a pretty close relationship. Although there’s a lot of us, and we may not all see each other as often as we’d like, we’ve always got each others backs. I’ll always remember when I had a cold a couple of years ago and they brought round cards, soup, a mug, tissues and my favourite sweets. Basically, they took the place of my non existent boyfriend. Why not having many friends is a good thing I think that the older you get, the more apparent it becomes who you’re real friends are and with blogging I am constantly gaining new friends who have so much in common and who I can share the experience with. This is why I’ve decided to stop clinging on to the friendships of my past and invest in my besties! As with anything, it’s quality over quantity and for that reason I think that not having many friends is a good thing, it means you can spend more time on the friendships that have stood the test of time! *Shirt : Boden Jeans : Asos Shoes : Topshop Bag : Zara SOLD OUT – Similar here I would love it if you followed me on Bloglovin’ and don’t forget that it’s the best way to stay up to date with the latest posts!

I’ve been doing a lot of shopping recently so thought I’d share some of my latest buys with you guys in a fashion haul! I love sharing what i’ve been buying with you before I style it up because I never really talk about why I brought things and why I love the item in my blog posts, they’re more about the styling and outfit!

Let me know what you think and if you decide to buy anything then let me know what you get!!! The frayed denim skirt is already my favourite and looks amazing with the little crop top I’m wearing in the video!

5 Easy Ways To Build Your Following on Bloglovin’

I’ve often seen this come up on twitter chats as a kind of side chat, how difficult it seems to be to build your following on Bloglovin’. Now I have by no means got tens of thousands, but I have grown my following from under 200 to nearly 900 in just a few months so I thought I’d share some of my secrets and the things I do on a daily basis that I believe have helped! How to build your following on Bloglovin’ So I’ve had Bloglovin’ since I first started my blog over a year ago, when I looked at my following of a mere 13 in around November of last year I just didn’t get it. I knew more than those 13 read my blog and I had grown quite a following through other social media outlets so there was definitely something I was doing wrong, or wasn’t doing at all. I set about researching, as my boyfriend has taught me to do with anything I’m not sure on – he believes the internet has all of lifes answers and I do too. I’ve listed below 5 of the super easy things I changed and believe have really helped me and will help you to build your blogs following on Bloglovin’! share through it When you promote your blog on twitter – wait, you do promote your blog on twitter don’t you? If not read this post immediately. When you promote your blog posts through twitter, share them via Bloglovin’. This to me is the single and most effective way of building your blogs following. If you’re a part of the Facebook groups or have a Facebook page, you can also share it there. Sharing through you’re page means your readers are already on your Bloglovin’ page where hitting follow is super easy. ask at the end of each blog post Asking for people to follow you is honestly something you should do. I know it’s cringe but you’ll get over it, and you really should because guess what? it works. I now make a point of asking at the end of each and every blog post for the reader to follow me. This is such a simple step and has worked wonders to build my blogs following on Bloglovin’. Hey, while you’re here, why don’t you follow me on Bloglovin’? – see what I did there? make a big, eye catching sign This is something that I came up with myself. I was looking at the teeny weeny Bloglovin’ button one day and thinking how people probably can’t even see it. So I made a sign, a BIG sign to go on the sidebar of my blog – AKA it’s always visible. I’m not sure how other blogging platforms work but I’m on WordPress and I just added it as an image on my widgets and set the link to go directly to my Bloglovin’ page. One click and my following’s building. ask people to follow you on it through social media As well as asking at the end of your post and sharing…
