Twilight is one of my favourite times of day (actually I like most times of day except the depressing period 12-half 3). Ignore any connotations with Stephanie Meyer's books. I've always wanted to take photos illuminated by the warm glow of yellow streetlights, especially as there is one right outside my bedrom window which shines through the curtains and comforts me when I can't sleep.

Unfortunately, I picked the wrong day as there were tons of teenagers walking past giving me wierd looks, so I didn't take many pictures. Apparently a girl in a trench and heels with a massive tripod and camera is not a normal sight on the street at 10 o'clock.

Wearing my mom's new coat, from Debenhams I think, and Topshop shoes. Can you tell I've been watching film noirs? :)

Treemania 200

I unintentionally dressed like a tree so I intentionally took pictures with two of my three favourite trees.

Wearing a Topshop dress and earrings, mom's top, random tights and Swedish Hasbeens x H&M shoes. Be glad I took off the belt that looks like tree bark.

'Here's a tree impression. :)

Internet window shopping lusting gives inspiration. A navajo-ish feather headress is in the creation process but has been paused while I dreamcatcherise (new verb meaning "to make a dreamcatcher"). I agree the one above doesn't have the standard pattern but hey, I like triangles. Can't wait for my first ever festival to wear this feather monstrosity and it's soon-to-be-created neon sibling. :)

Inspiration - Colourful simplicity

Like many bloggers I follow, I've been dressing more simply recently. Although that's more to do with the way I hate forward planning and carrying massive bags all day (alright, I'm lazy.. And tired) than trying to slim down my wardrobe. I like my wardrobe fat. Anyway, here's some inspiration.

Yep, these are from Dylana and Natalie. Gonna have to admit my love for the Suarez sistahs. :)

Rockin' owt

My "outfits" change throughout the day as I discover I can't write while wearing certain pieces of jewellery, change temperature then add or remove layers as appropriate and redo my hair as according to convenience etc.

This particular look was pretty much unplanned and I wasn't planning to take pictures as it was purely for comfort and revision purposes. But bits got added and I realised I rather liked it, and felt like a rockstar with ma leather jacket, leopard print and hat. The best part of it is by far the hat. I intend to extend my hat repetoire.

Wearing a Miss Selfridge jacket, dad's Hawaiian top. Topshop leggings, H&M necklace, old bag and L's hat which I "borrowed". :)

Ps. Photos by L who said she's now going to be "the one that follows you around with a camera taking cool pictures" haha.
Pps. Thank you very much to my new follower! :)

If there's one thing I love, it's the smell of rain. Sat out all day in the rain which should explain the coat.

Oh I also love multiple edits of the same photo. Wearing jeans from India, a cut-up H&M top, a cut-up vintage sweater, Miss Selfridge coat and some very lovely earrings that I forgot to photograph. Another day. :)

J'essaie de penser en francais parce que j'ai des examens cette semaine (je m'excuse pour des erreurs). Et des rayées sont tres francaises, non? Plus, j'adore les poches de cette robe.

Je porte une ancienne robe, un pull de abercrombie, un bandeau des tournesols de Primark, un bracelet qu'était un cadeau, et des sandales de Swedish Hasbeens x H&M. J'ai adoré Swedish Hasbeens depuis l'été dernier et enfin, j'ai ces acheté! Elles sont parfait. :)

Ps. Est-ce que nous pouvons prétendre que je ne regarde pas ennuyé dans les deux premières photos? Merci.

What a relief to have Blogger back again. I never knew I was so addicted.

I believe photographs are memories and that's why I always have a camera on me. I might be a bit annoying, constantly sticking a camera in your face and capturing the unflattering poses but in 10 years, we'll have forgotten the little moments and will spend hours laughing at old photographs of ourselves.

The earrings I made..

..and the dress they were made to match.

I'm a vampire. No seriously, I kind of hate the sun. And I'm sparkly. :)

These are a few of my favourite things

Sunglasses, paisley print pants and firework/jellyfish shirt from Topshop; embroidered bag from Singapore and flowers from my garden.

And some earrings I made to go with a dress for a special occasion. :)

Ps. The reason for the random posts is stress. I have exams starting next week (although the stress isn't due to revising - quite the opposite).

Inspiration - Saint sailboat

I'm so obsessed with putting together a wardrobe for next year (I'll have to dress quite conservatively which is just my sort of challenge. Watch out - I'll be the wierd one), I can't decide what I want to wear right now. And printed pants have overtaken my heart. I blame this photo of the perfect look taken by Hanneli Mustaparta, my current style icon. I also want her hair.

Loose like pjyamas or more fitted (but straight not skinny) I want them. I'm seriously considering buying men's pyjamas to wear outside the house. I'm also trying to retrain myself on the palazzo pant front. :)

Ps. Yeah, I will get round to updating Oh L'Inspiration at some point soon-ish.

On the streets

Don't have the energy to take nice pictures so enjoy some streetstyle I took a week or so ago. I've never really done streetstyle before but it's so fun - you get to compliment random strangers, see the WTF look merge into pride and happiness when you ask if you can take a photo and find out where they bought their cool clothes.

And two of the cutest dogs I've ever seen; I'm not even a dog person. First, Toto and Dorothy. (Okay so I don't know their real names but could they be anymore Oz-y?)
