If I knew then, what I know now.

Style by OBK

Don’t fret about that reflection in the mirror, or that roll over your jeans;

Those feeling of being out of control, and anything but strong will not be in your future by any means. 

These will all be but memories in two years time...

You will have given up the bubbles, the spirits and the wine;

You will have ditched the bad diet and shed those unnecessary pounds.

Your spots will have faded, your skin will glow.

Your eyes will sparkle, your hair will have grown, and have a super shine.

You will be able to afford to have your nails done all of the time.

You will have purpose, you will have drive, all the qualities you had once upon a time;

And the confidence to dream and reach for more.

The hazy nights replaced with cosy nights in,

You’ll be planning a future filled with travel and ambition with him.

He is your Elvis, your rock and now fiancé.

Together you are alcohol free;

As fit, happy and healthy as can be.

 

 

This week, we celebrated 2 years of being sober. It's not that we had a 'problem' (okay, perhaps I did a little bit, maybe, ish), but we made the choice from a health point of view following a particularly heavy night. Sitting on the sofa feeling hellish, we were wondering why we had done this to ourselves. Was the nausea, headache and general feeling of death really worth it? No, of course it wasn't/ 2 years on, we're healthier than ever. Fitter than ever. Stronger than ever. Happier than ever. 

Oh, and I'm now a much nicer person, who doesn't have the tendency to have a personality switch with the devil.


Here's to another two! And the next, and the next, and the next! 


Mix it up

Three of my favourite things in a/w styling; knitwear (an obvious choice), leather and my beloved VANS.

I'm always sceptical about the comfiness of trainers. I think their name and origin can often be pretty deceptive - I think I have gotten more blisters from trainers than I have actual shoes. Or at the very least - very very achey feet afterwards from the lack of comfort. Perhaps this is just me simply having terrible choice in trainers, but it is what it is I guess. These things have happened. 

 BUT... I think I have finally come across the brand and style of trainers which will be my forever trainer. As in, I am hesitant to consider changing brands EVER again. And the best bit? They fit with my style perfectly - a lot better than Adidas or Nike do at any rate (nothing personal). 

VANS OLD SKOOL have been worn pretty much at least 5 times a week (for some portion of the day) since they came into my life back in May. They were not even chosen or purchased for everyday styling then either - we had bought ourselves longboards and lets just say that the footwear in my wardrobe was not skater chic appropriate. VANS seemed like an obvious choice, practical, built for purpose - oh and they look pretty nice too. 

Needless to say I have never looked back, and am now eagerly shopping around for my next pair. Some of the best below... 

They are the trainer which adds that certain "edge" to any outfit - and is pretty much the epitome of that laid-back chic UK street style is known for. Also perfect for the style my wardrobe has embodied this season - smart casual dressing-  the kind where the same outfit could be worn to run errands, and to a dinner date JUST by a change of shoes. God send right? 

More on this another time - I'm planning a Lookbook to capture this - I may even dabble in filming one - we'll see! 

In the meantime, out takes anyone?

Desperately seeking denim

Hours - maybe even days. I think if I add up all the time I have spent over the years on the hunt for "the perfect" denim, you could equal this to days. And guess what, I'm still hunting! 

As a 5ft 1 (ish) girl, the struggle for jeans is really. Yes, yes; I know that brands such as Topshop do a petite range, and the majority of brands offer varying leg lengths, but still, the struggle is so so real! Coming in at a waist 25", the problem usually comes with my legs. Despite having a "thigh gap" (not that this is important by any means), my thighs and calf muscles are often left with indents from jeans. Curse of being active maybe. 

In short, it is time to finally veer away from the cheaper end of the hughstreet denim offering, and move towards some higher end brands to see what can be offered there.

Levis, Lee, Wrangler, Pepe Jeans - I'm looking at you.  

In the meantime, while I explore the vast variety out there, I've put together some of my favourites - and not just jeans - all pieces faded and dark!

 

As always, any recommendations would be much appreciated. 

What is your "go to" denim brand?
