Studded collar blouse: £28.50, Reverse via asos. Skirt: £3, h+m. Necklace: £12; Elsie Belle. Boots: £60, Topshop. Lipstick: Cockney, MAC.

And lazy hair resumes.
Casual Scarlett Kapella/Breana McDow/Nick O'Swagley vibes of "R U Mine?" which I have listened to enough in the past twenty-four hours to sufficiently annoy my flatmates. This look isn't very "me", but it's fun to wear something that can't be taken from a five year old's wardrobe.
Shout out to ma gurl Amy as it's her fifth birthday tomorrow (she's a leap year baby, like she hasn't been letting everyone know), so a few people are coming to visit and go out in fancy dress. Looking forward to the 9am tutorial as a mixer. Be young, be foolish, but be happy.


ps, I'm currently on the lookout for something rad to say thank you to all my readers as I reached 1,000 GFC members this week! Let's see what I can come up with...

Jean Genie

My first pair of jeans were from Tammy and had star patches dotted sporadically up the legs; you obviously couldn't get much cooler than me. I had quite the collection, yet when I started sixth form I just... stopped. Perhaps because it was a boys' school (girls were allowed to join in year twelve, I promise I haven't been holding back vital information!), but I went from Converse and skinnies, to heels and skirts, without looking back.
Then, of course, I see my girl crushes wearing them, and everything changes - I'm blaming Alexa.
One of the more affordable stockists of bright coloured women's jeans is Bank. I tend to go there for going out clothes (I have a pleather dress that makes me feel like Daisy Lowe), but their daywear is pretty versatile too. They stock loads of brands (my favourites are Reverse, Lipsy and Dr. Martens) and sell menswear too - perfect for knitwear! Luckily they have stores in both Liverpool and Essex (i.e. Lakeside, home to Joey Essex), as well as other locations around the country.

Here are some outfits I created using my main gal pals for inspiration:

Heaven Sent at Bank stone coloured trousers, Sass & Bide embroidered jacket, Adidas Originals at Bank cardigan, and Missguided boots.

This post is written in partnership with Bank, but all words and views expressed are my own.

Mulberry Coloured Mulberry Hair

I never attempt to try a hair "do", I'm far too lazy and decide that as long as my parting's straight then I'm good to go. However, the tagline of 'wild school girl living in a forest' called to me, so I had a go at recreating Sam McKnight's look for the Mulberry AW12 show that I saw on their blog. Thankfully it's meant to look a little bit messy!

And a quick hopefully-not-too-gushy thank you to Tesco for putting a little photo of me on their blog, I shouldn't be in the same section as loads of my favourites! Just so you know, the jelly beans went down a treat. Making banana bread tonight - excited. And this is why I shall never be a model, aha.
