About Me

My photo
I currently study and live in Birmingham and am in my second year of university, undertaking a degree in media and communication. I used to blog (about fashion, style, clothes etc.) but for various reasons stopped. However, I now find myself at a point where I have more developed and informed opinions on an array of different things, including the fashion industry. This blog is not going to be photos of outfits and clothes, but my view on a multitude of topics surrounding the fashion industry. Fashion is something that I love but as media undergraduate I want to write articles that avoid the wishy washy adoration so commonly reflected in fashion blogs and magazines. It's interesting to look a little further and dig a littler deeper.

Simple things

shorts; H&M, tunic; Dorothy Perkins, belt & sandals; Topshop
hello all, I just wanted to show you guys how something as simple as belt can completely change an outfit. I know it might sound really obvious but sometimes the obvious is the last thing we think of. It was lovely and hot so I wanted to wear something cool and light. Plus I was just lazing around the house so I didn't need to look too composed. I had a plain pair of shorts on, they're quite an odd material and the best way to describe them is 'wannabe denim', they're really light and comfy. All I did was tuck part of the tunic into the shorts for a simple casual feel and added a pair of sandals; perfect for a lazy summer day. Then, to make the outfit look slightly more smart and appropriate for going out, I put a belt round it and tied it in a knot (the shorts are underneath). It's just the little things that make a lot of difference.
p.s. this post was meant to go out on Friday but blogger wouldn't let me upload photos


  1. you're so totally right, the look completely changed with just adding the belt, cleverly done! i love both looks!

  2. Ahh I recently discovered my love for belts, this post is great! I love that you went from 'lazing around the house' to looking really cool and summery! Great tunic too! Panda xo
