Strap yourselves in, here come a whole lot more excuses. I'm actually so annoyed, I had everything packed and all my work sorted so I could go away last week and catch up on blogging then managed to forget my tripod. It's nearly impossible to take photos around home without it and so today which I had planned to be an outfit post will sadly not be. I swear that's what happens every time! Anyway, as much as I love following blogs Instagram has kind of taken over - although these girls all have blogs too if you feel like stalking them further. I thought since I'm feeling pretty crappy and haven't managed to unpack my camera and sorts, I'd share my favourite accounts of the moment. I also threw in mine for good measure ;)
The days here are slowly becoming cooler, the rain is settling in more frequently and I find myself rugged up in front of the TV often. I feel like I wait the entire year to enjoy the Summer, only to enjoy once it ends. As the seasons change, I like to plan what to buy next, I mean what girl doesn't? To be honest I need to completely clear out my wardrobe and start again, as well as get an actual job to fund my all too expensive shopping hobby. However, planning ahead is a really great way to make sure that if you do go on a shopping spree that it actually works together and you don't end up with far too many unnecessary purchases and that awful guilty feeling in the pit of your stomach. This time round I'm focusing on the textures and details that set pieces apart and although these aren't necessarily ground breaking, they'll be what I'm investing in the coming season...
As I've been mentioning for a while now, I've had heaps of ideas for the direction I want my blog to take and it's going to start with more personal posts, more often. For the past 5 years this blog has been somewhat of an extension of my life and so moving forward I plan on taking you all with me for the ride; with articles, photo diaries, videos, as well as my usual fashion/outfit posts. I know that the blogs I've continued to follow for years are the ones where you can see not only inside the wardrobe of the blogger but also catch a glimpse of their everyday life. I guess it's my curiosity, but I think sharing snippets of a week is so much more interesting to look at and read than regurgitating the same trends etc. posts which a million other people have already talked about before you. So with that being said I can't wait for you to join me on my 2015 journey!
This week feels as though it has been a million days long and it doesn't seem real that university starts back tomorrow. Okay seriously, this year is going too quickly. I've had a pretty packed week though considering ticking off another 'sight I want to see' as well as spending time with friends I haven't seen all Summer. I guess when you are cut off from the outside world, disregard routines as well as make the most of every minute of the day, time kind of becomes irrelevant. So, before my ramble begins to not make sense (probably already has) here's my highs and lows of the week...
I probably should be paying more attention to what's been happening at NYFW so far, but to be honest, I'd rather look at the street style or fashion bloggers. Fashion on the runway is more like a jigsaw in my mind where you have to figure out how it would work in real life and as I sit here in the sun, after a dip in the lake, I really couldn't be bothered trying. There really is some kind of internal satisfaction when you aren't worried about keeping up to date with anything. Sure, trends from the runways are my jam but for now I'm going to be an ignorant fashion blogger spending the last summer evenings in the sun and a bikini while looking at pretty photos on tumblr and wishing this season would never end...
