I could bore you with the truth about an uneventful youth

it's cohen - uk fashion blog: ootd, wiwt, essex, paisley dressit's cohen - uk fashion blog: ootd, wiwt, essex, paisley dressit's cohen - uk fashion blog: ootd, wiwt, essex, paisley dressit's cohen - uk fashion blog: ootd, wiwt, essex, paisley dress, going home from a night out to discover obscure items that aren't yours in your bag the following morning
Paisley print dress: £5, H+M. Denim Jacket: £63, NW3 by Hobbs. Chelsea boots: £60, Topshop. Tote bag: free, Mary Katrantzou for Topshop. Necklaces (from top): Topshop, Vintage, Elsie Belle. Plus MYSTERY UMBRELLA.

These photos represent a series of cliché poses:
1. "I'm a fashion blogger, darling"
2. "Look at my expensive It Bag" (which I got for free)
3. Coy "oh, there's a camera? I didn't realise!"
4. TOURIST
The above may also be read as "reasons I should not be allowed a camera".

I wore this to walk to the next village to buy milk. I do love the countryside, but it's a drag if you want to actually do anything, as the last bus runs at 6pm. This normally results in nights out becoming very similar to escaping Azkaban in difficulty levels, ending either in getting the first bus home at 7am, or crashing on some poor, unsuspecting person's floor - London and Manchester's night buses are an extreme luxury to my country bumpkin self. The dress was bought as a result of this difficulty, as I decided the cider-covered, slept-in clothes post-spontaneous Friday night weren't entirely appropriate to wear to one of my closest friend's birthday meal. Cue a trip to H+M's heavily discounted sale rail, and grabbing this for a fiver. You're only young once...

  13. Also I recall the days of having to travel to lands afar for basics such as groceries. We had to drive ten minutes for milk but could pop round the corner for novelty canal boat pens

    1. are these the pens that are filled with liquid, and you tip them up and the boat "sails" to the bottom end? I HAVE SO MANY OF THEM. and puh-leez, you look rad in anything. especially the good ol' lbd xx
