This is longggggg over due ~ Yes, I turned the big 21! Ahhh (it was in December) See what I mean by long over due? So lets just jump right into it shall we?
I celebrated with my friends at Beagle, a lovely brunch place in Hoxton, the coffee and the food was amazing!
Its bittersweet to think the older I get the smaller my circle is. It’s either because im selectively social or its because I don’t like alot of people’s vibes.
To think when I was 14 I would have some grand 21st birthday.. lol, young nisha you had too many out of reach expectations. 7 years on … I was so happy with a casual brunch with my bf and two of my closest friends. I can’t think of any other way of changing how I celebrated my 21st. 😭💕
Bag and Shoes: Bershka
It was 1 degree Celsius, who did I think I was walking around in a dress with no tights?!
I hope you enjoyed this & thank you so much for reading!!
Lots of Love
I like to buy a few staple items and mix and match them instead of investing in 5 different outfits for each day of the week and by doing this you’re able to save a lot of wardrobe space and money!
Some staple items I’ll have for a smart/casual wardrobe are:
- A boyfriend blazer
- Black pumps
- Slim leg trousers
- High neck top
- Tights (black and nude)
- A v-neck top
- A large tote bag
- Little black dress
1. Boyfriend Blazer
A blazer will never go out of fashion and its such a timeless piece of clothing that I believe everyone should have because it’s so easy to dress up or down. The boyfriend blazer is smart yet comfortable to wear and different to a traditional blazer because the style of it is longer, with pockets, slightly oversized, in black or grey, with rolled up sleeves.
2. Black pumps
You need black pumps because they will go with anything! I like suede pumps over leather pumps because they are a lot more comfortable to wear.
3. High waisted/Slim Leg trousers
High waisted trousers will accentuate your waist and show off your backside and slim leg trousers will go well with any type of shoe from pumps to heels.
4. High neck tops
High neck tops are flattering for people with big busts and are different to a traditional button down shirt and are a lot more comfortable to wear.
5. Don’t be afraid of colour
It’s normal to stick with a colour palette of black, white and grey when buying clothes but that doesn’t mean you should be afraid to add a pop of colour, this can be done by adding a red bag or as I have done; wearing an orange top. Adding colour to a basic monotone outfit will make your look a lot more relaxed.
I thought I’d share some outfit ideas if you’re going off to sixth-form in September or to a job interview if you’re totally unsure on what to wear.
I hope you found this to be helpful!
How do you describe black and white photographs?
I describe them as classy, vintage and raw or even nostalgic as photography was originally monochromatic. Black and white photography can be interpreted in various ways purely because everyone’s ideas and visions are different.
There’s just something about black and white photos, by taking away the colour from the image takes away any distractions and simply causes you to focus more and appreciate all the details of the image.
Maybe it’s just me? I don’t know
The top is from Oasis, the mini skirt is from Newlook, boots are from Primark and the bag is from Zara!
Hope you enjoyed!
