FASHION: STYLE ON THE STREETS OF MIDDLESBROUGH

 Being a fashion student means that overcoming your fears of approaching strangers is essential as one day this is going to be needed. I decided to do a street style on the streets of Middlesbrough. I thought it would be great to find out people’s individual styles and where they get their inspiration from.
Being a nervous person, this was such a struggle to do and I deffinetly overcame my fear. I asked five people for their permission to take part in my street style and I was so pleased with the outcome. I got a range of different styles and everyone was unique to eachother.
I think this is the best part about street style, as it is an opportunity for people to reveal who they are, as fashion is such a big thing for peoples identities. It gives people the opportunity to express themselves through fashion, which is what I love the most.

FASHION: OOTD ALL THAT DENIM

So, like I said in my previous post on denim, it never goes out of fashion. I wanted to showcase this cute outfit I put together last week as I loved it. I was going bowling with my family and bowling is always an awkard one, like what do you wear? I never want to look too dressy but I don’t want to look too casual. Im one of those that likes to dress up 99% of the time.

I put this outfit together out of the blue and it just seemed to work. And it was such a good choice as it was the comfiest outfit ever for bowling.

Starting with the scarf, I picked this up at a local boutique last week. I have been looking for one for so long and have struggled to come across one. I was so happy when I found this as it was so cheap for only £8.00. It looks so cute with everything and the colours are perfect.

As for the t-shirt, this is one of my complete favourites. For everyone who is on instagram, im sure everyone loves Hotmess and Tayla Blue. Hotmess is one of my favourite online shops, so when this tee dropped, I had to purchase it. For those wondering, it says “The Best Time For New Beginnings Is Now”. It was also such a good price, I grabbed it in the sale for £22.00.

Because I was bringing back the denim jacket, which I haven’t worn in about a year (because lets face it, when do we have denim jacket weather?) I decided to put on these sweet little espadrille shoes I grabbed in the bargain sale at River Island. When I say bargain, I literally mean a mega bargain, they were reduced to £5.00! I pictured myself only wearing these on holiday, but they looked perfect with this outfit. I also wore my leather look leggings to break up the colour. I couldn’t wear jeans as it would be a total denim overload, so these pants looked perfect.

FASHION: THOSE KIMMY K VIBES

These leggings have been stocked everywhere and have been centre of attention across instagram and twitter ever since Kim stepped out wearing them looking so effortlessly glamourous. She doesn’t even have to try and she still pulls it off.

Well, in my case, i’m not quite as glam as Kimmy K so I had to try my best to pull this off. I loved these leggings as soon as I seen them on her and then things were made even better when my favourite online boutiques started stocking them. To take it even better, I picked them up in the sale for just £10.00.

I purchased these from the Megan Mckenna range at MissPap and I love them. I have been debating on them for so long but as soon as they went in the sale, I snapped them up right away.

I was having a mega struggle with what to wear with these as Kim looks unreal and her look is so effortless. I obviously had to make effort to look half this good.

In the end, I paired these leggings with this gorgeous bodysuit from Boohoo. I chose the same colour scheme as Kim as I knew it would look good. The crossver detail on the bodysuit makes the oufit look even better and to add to the look, I wore my pointed toe heels from Primark.

FASHION: LEOPARD LOVING

Animal print is a trend that is always in and never dies. Leopard print especially. You can guarantee that a leopard print statement is always a good outfit.

My OOTN (outfit of the night) on Saturday night was this stunning outfit I pieced together. Although I felt slightly like a cast member from the Flinstones, I still liked it.

As I work in River Island, I’m always having a good browse, especially in the sale, which is where I picked up this denim fringed skirt, as I said in my last blog post (here), denim is always a trend. I couldn’t resist getting my hands on this skirt as I just loved it when I saw it and for only £10.00 reduced from £32.00, how could I not?

And moving onto the bodysuit, I fell in love witht this also when I saw it. I always love a good browse on Missguided which is where I picked this beauty up. The bell sleeve detailing and the sheerness of the bodysuit was perfect and I couldn’t wait for it to arrive.

I put together this outfit with these open-toe block heels from New Look which I purchased in the christmas sale. I love a comfy heel on a night out and these do the trick for me.
