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. 😭💕

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’m quite an indecisive person, so if I can’t put together an outfit in the morning or if I feel uncomfortable, it will throw me off my whole day. I need to be able to have a wardrobe that is comfortable and chic simultaneously.

So if you were to go through my wardrobe, you’ll find the following …

1. Heeled ankle boots

I’m 5 ft 3 inches … I’m that awkward height in between short and tall depends on who I’m standing next to.

Ankle boots with a slightly thick heel will allow you to be both fashionable and comfortable. I wear up to 3 inches, no more than that.

When I wear heels I notice that I feel powerful and confident.

However, be careful to give your feet a break from heels because excessive heel-wearing can even cause changes in the toe joints, or cause degenerative arthritis in the middle of the foot.

2. Biker jackets

Wearing a biker jacket gives a bit of edge to your outfit as well as keeping you warm.

  • Brown/black leather/suede jackets look good with neutral clothing
  • A Burgundy leather jacket looks good with black clothing.

3. High waisted skinny jeans

A good pair of skinny jeans, especially black skinny jeans, will complement your figure by slimming down your legs. The “high waist” aspect of the jeans will give the illusion of your legs appearing longer.

When buying jeans switch it up, for distressed jeans or ribbed jeans instead of plain ones!

4. Plain t-shirts with a structure or loose-fitting.

So if you’re going for a simple wardrobe, go for the basic colours of; black, white, grey and neutral.

Plain t-shirts are a simple go to piece, it’s very cheap to buy and keep and in my opinion, you can go through white t-shirts like toilet paper.

5. Over sized jumpers with a high neck/turtle neck

For those days where you’re feeling under the weather, pair your jumper with skinny jeans and that’s an outfit in its self.

6. Over sized scarf/poncho

Throwing this on top of any t-shirt gives you extra warmth, adds layering and if your t-shirt is plain, get a patterned scarf to break up the outfit and to add texture.

Also, go for “colour blocking” instead of patterns when purchasing a poncho, it’s easier to pair with any outfit.

7. Accessories

Wearing simple and dainty jewellery is a great way to make any outfit look as if you took time pairing it together. Accessories, such as rings, layered necklaces, watches, earrings all add depth to the outfit and those small details are what stitch the outfit together without any hassle and won’t break the bank as much as buying new clothes does!

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!

Love,

It’s actually sad how little self-control I had this month. I found some gems and I just had to have them – I mean, if you’re thinking about it, buy it – life is too short to have regrets.

(This was the first time I ever did a flat lay!)

Disclaimer.. Some of the photos have this annoying orange tinge, that’s just the lighting, not my editing.

So, first off, I went very old school and repurchased the Bourjois Bronzing Powder in Medium 51. Whenever I wear this, my face looks a lot healthier on the days where I feel lifeless. I also bought the Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara Very Black, I have worn it twice but I feel like you have to wipe off excess product before using it, so I’m waiting for it to dry out a little, however, it holds the curl of my lashes really well!

Then on to books, I know I have a long list of “to read” books on my shelf but there was no harm in buying two more; Men Without Women by Haruki Murakami and Goodbye, Things, on Minimalist Living by Fumio Sasaki. I’m interested to see how easy it is to opt a minimalist life style.

I know we are July and October seems faaar away, but these jumpers were too damn cheap and cute not to buy.

IMG_3455

The picture above doesn’t do the colours of the jumpers justice. The jumper with the frill is a soft neutral pink. I found the frills to be a cute detail and the turtle neck is really soft and a relaxed fit. I think both of these would be perfect to wear when I’m off to University. Both of these jumpers are from Warehouse.

Then I bought a really nice pair of ankle boots, they’re about 3 inches in height and suede. I did apply crep protect on them to save them from being ruined by the rain. These boots were from Debenhams. They have a pointed tip and they’re slip on and they hug really nice to my feet and are comfortable to walk in.

(I’ll probably do an outfit post soon when the weather is appropriate)

I also got a new tote bag, I always have black handbags but never brown ones, so I tried something new and bought this from House of Fraser for £17 when they were originally £68 (BLOODY STEAL). I’m so glad I bought this, I really like the shape and the length of the strap is perfect, it’s not too long or short and I found it to be really spacious even though it looks small.

IMG_3467

Lastly, I bought a new pair of glasses. I haven’t had my eyes checked in over 2 years and I knew I was very over due for a check up. So, I picked up these up from Specsavers, from the Kylie Minogue collection in number 12. I really liked the whole ombre look on the glasses, in my opinion, they look really retro. I hate the case though.
