Spring is here | SS18 farewell to the beret

Spring is here | SS18 farewell to the beret 

It's painful to say this but it's time, RIP beret you had a good winter run and I'm sure with this on and off again British weather you will be back soon. But for now, it's farewell. So this is the official first spring outfit and I'm easing into it with the tights, but no coat in sight and for one I am glad. So what will I be wearing this spring? Well as you may have seen me shamelessly plug I have a depop like so many other people. I was attempting to spring clean but it seems I have stumbled into some shops and somehow bought more than I originally had. SO, I have a steady stream of clothes to go up on their if you want to check that out here. I did set myself the task of the start of this year to get a lot more vintage 60's items into my wardrobe and I've done just that ... so keep an eye on that soon.

As for new items I've got a couple of must-have items for this month of kinda spring kinda not. 
That transition phase ya know.

Quirky bows and big collars | Fully Thrifted

Quirky bows and pea coats | Fully Thrifted 

I have never felt more like an anime girl than I do right now, bows on everything by now you should know is my thing. But a big collar too, I haven't had anything like this for quite a while and although I debated this vintage piece mulling it over in the shop for a couple of minutes. I took the chance and I love it. 
It's like nothing I've ever had and something no one else does. I'm once again reviving the fully thrifted blog posts because I fully support buying vintage. If you're new and are not familiar with fully thrifted it's basically an entire outfit of vintage items, or with one or two that you can buy. To demonstrate how easy it is to pair a vintage look with the mix of the new and old. A lot of my items are vintage, as well as highstreet I like to mix the styles. Uniqueness is always on my mind when buying vintage, sorting through the tat and finding the gems. That's what I live for. 
The only item that is not vintage is the adorable boots you can find similar here

An 80's flair | Bold patterns

An 80's flair | Bold patterns 

The 80's is one of the eras that was great for music but clothes ... not so much. But despite this preconception, I've held for many years I've decided that I will in fact and well... have tried an 80's inspired look. SLIGHTLY! I love the use of colours from yester years but the 80's really brought some cool and funky patterns. I'm not a fan of shoulder pads or those awful bum bags that are zooming around the high street right now. But a colourful pattern that helps me live my Crayola dreams, yes I can get behind that.

SO here it is:
A rundown 

Sadly the jacket is no longer available but it's from Monki I've attached some similar colourful jackets below!
Two of these are from Monki I'm wearing a size XS and it's very roomy/ oversized

The skirt is vintage Topshop but I have found the similar ones to replicate the look 
My bag can be bought from my depop here:

Hello! Long time no see, or long time no type would be correct. I have been busy, incredibly busy hence no photos or any sort of consistent content (Sorry). However, I am back but not fully I will be attempting to get outfits up but bear with me as I have exams and deadlines and all that fun stuff. Haha, kill me. ANYHOO! I am styling next to a very uninspiring wall my outfit of Easter Sunday. A very 70's look and quite frankly I love t. This year one of my resolutions is to buy more vintage and more vintage-inspired products and for only £7. Yes 7, and for that price, I could afford all of a lot more on forever 21! COMING SOON!
This one of those pieces you can't style wrong it's a day dress, a nightdress and doesn't require anything else. I am pictured with barb glasses here. #RIPBARB but apart from that, I'm flying solo on a style point of view. I've found some other pretty cool stuff on the sale too which I'll link below as some sort of Katy's highlight reel.

p.s: I'm uodating my depop with loads of stuff tonight so go go go MY Depop is HERE
