Through the Looking Glass

Good Morning World!

I wouldn’t call myself a very professional fashion blogger but I would call myself a fashion enthusiast. I have always been a lover of nice clothes and a good pair of shoes, especially when there is an occasion. So, I put this outfit together as a sort of dinner dining attire for the Autumnal season. I feel like the burgundy colour compliments the shedding tree leaves making this the perfect seasonal outfit.

I bought these swede dungarees from Topshop for £45, and I absolutely adore them.  I have been looking for a nice pair of dungarees for some time and I never found any that fit me properly or looking right. I am not into the whole denim ones so I was thrilled when I came across this beauty.

I paired this look with a simple white high neck white body suit also from Topshop, some tights (as it’s cold outside), and some simple black ballerina pumps. The only thing I struggle with when wearing this outfit is where to wear it, as its too nice to be casual ;).

Bath | Roman Baths and Jane Austen Centre

Good Morning World!

dsc_0242

Bath is a city located in the west of England. It is filled with beautiful cobbled streets and a waterfall of culture. I have lived in Britain my whole life and yet my traveling past of my own county seems very bare. For the most part, we as a nation are captivated by the weather, it seems the only thing we brits go on about (besides tea) so as it comes to no surprise our holidays seem to be more where the sun shines. This got me thinking, why not experience British culture before venturing off somewhere else.

One weekend my boyfriend and I set off on a 2 hour train journey to the beautiful city of bath. We stayed in a hotel located minutes away from the train station and in a prime location for visiting the Roman Baths and other major attractions in the city centre. We arrived late on the Friday night and only had time to potter about the city and enjoy a delightful dinner in one of the nearby restaurants before resigning back to the hotel.

I, as the sunshine morning person that I am, woke up super early for breakfast excited to start my bath adventures. Our first stop on my list of bath attractions was of course the Roman Baths. The baths were built in 33BC, and now consist of remarkable preserved remains of one of the most famous places in history. The water from the baths are heated from the earths core creating a remarkably natural thermal spring.

Having never visited this beautiful city I thought the baths would just be that, you look at the baths and you leave. But as you begin, you enter a beautifully presented exhibition along with a “walkie talkie phone thing” that allows you to key in numbers relating to an artefact and hear its history. I found it utterly fascinating and would thoroughly recommend this to anyone wanting to visit this darling city.

Another place I have always longed to visit in bath is the Jane Austen Centre. Ever since I was younger my mother has always been a Jane Austen fan, owning nearly all the books and constantly re-watching TV series, so there was no surprise when I have become a huge fan of her work. My favourite book being the classic novel “Pride and Prejudice” which I have re-read numerous times.

The Jane Austen centre is located on 40 Gay street, a mere few doors down from where Jane lived herself. The tour of the centre begins with a 10 minute talk about Jane’s life, and a video on her achievements and novels. This then finished with an exhibition about various clothing, games and facts of the 1800’s.

Although this exhibition was mainly for me, there were parts of it that even Harry seemed to enjoy. We spent ages going through a poster on ‘the language of the fan’ forever making convocation without moving our lips. There was also somewhere to try out writing with a quill and various games of the 1800’s which proved to get the better of our 21st century attention span.

After the culture filled weekend there was still some time left to do a bit of shopping along the quant cobbled streets, where we visited the Fudge Kitchen and purchased more than we care to admit.

Our time in bath was very short lived, spending our hours soaking up the bath culture. We are looking forward to another British adventure.

Edgy Autumn Jacket

Good Morning World!

My individual style can vary from cutsey florals and ballerina pumps to a leather jacket and block heels. Although this style is very neglected in my wardrobe choice I still enjoy the occasional biker chick look.

I wore this look when attending the fair that annually visits my local town in October. I though this look works best when worn at night as it gives off an edgy vibe. The faux fur rim on the leather jackets adds to the look and creates an outfit perfect for the colder months. I bought this jacket from Asos for only £29.99 which is a real steal when you take into account some of these jackets can go for way over £75.dsc_0016

I got this cosy stone jumper while exploring Winchester one weekend with my boyfriend. I got this jem for only £10 from Primark. I am normally not one to shop in Primark but I enjoy a good browse and you sometimes see the occasional odd number.

My overly loved joni jeans are from Topshop and my boots from H&M, both of which were bought many moons ago, but still continue to feature in my everyday wardrobe essentials.
