Last time I did one of these posts, the response was really positive. So, I thought I’d do another one!

Let’s talk about number one. To be honest, I don't think there's a lot I can say about a trusty blazer, other than the fact they're a perfect staple piece that look amazing over pretty much everything! I tend to swarm to the mens blazer section in charity shops as the selection tends to be a lot better but, I'd definitely check ebay/depop if you're looking for one - both of those places have tons of options too.
I've really started to enjoy wearing a lot more jewellery of late. Earrings in particular are definitely my jam. Back in the day I stayed well clear of hoop earrings but now I can't live without them. I'm also a huge lover of rings, I'd really like to invest in some more unique pieces when I can actually afford to do so! I'm loving brands such as Celine, Mejuri, SCREAM Pretty, Missoma & of course, Monica Vinader. I'm very aware that they're more pricey brands so I'm on the hunt for more affordable options! Watch this space.
Taking a trip down memory lane here but I'm definitely thinking of getting my trusty Vans slip ons back out. I used to have the classic checkerboard slip ons and of course in a wardrobe clear out before moving flat, I threw them out. Safe to say I'm now, very much, regretting that decision so I think I'm going to get another pair. The other style I love, as they're so versatile, is the Old Skool's. I honestly own so few pairs of practical and comfy shoes and I think Vans look absolutely amazing with near enough everything! What do we think?
Having good weather is all fun and games, until you realise you severly lack in appropriate clothing. Don't get me wrong, I love jeans but I can't be wearing them in this heat. I follow Monika on Instagram (if you don't already you totally should) and she has SO many incredible dresses! Major dress envy over here but, I'm super picky so I'm on the look out for some more to add to my minute collection.
Going back to having a lack of practical and comfy shoes, I'll be a hypocrite and say I'm loving open shoes. I guess not all of them are uncomfy but, a fair few options are definitely on the less comfy side... Anyway, I'm loving much more open, feminine, shoes. I think they look amazing with straight leg jeans, dresses or even some really boxy trousers. I love the look of this pair; a little more pricey but being leather, I think they’re worth it!
And last but not least, film photography
I think the main thing I adore about film photography is the sense of emotion is creates to the viewer. I feel like it connects with people a lot more and the moments are a lot more precious as they can't be reviewed on a screen. I'll always be a sucker for those grainy textures and scratchy lines but, whether it be 35mm or the likes of a polaroid, I love it. I'm currently eager to get my hands on everyone's fave 'starter' camera (an Olympus mju:-II) so I'll update you if I get my hands on one. I'm attempting to scout ebay for one that's not too pricey. I normally shoot with Fujifilm Fujicolour 200 but again, I’m going to try some others.
I hope you enjoyed this little round up. I really do enjoy this type of post.
Let me know if you want to see more like this.
