Wishlisting over on ASOS

 

So, over the past couple of months I’ve done a fair bit of grafting in the world of work and today I woke up to find I had been paid not just from one of my jobs but BOTH of them! Say whaaaat! I promised myself that when this day arrived that I would be a good girl and not buy anything (I had this whole save, save, save state of mind thing going on) but it’s as though I have this natural instinct (that I have no control over whatsoever) and before I know it I’m immediately reaching over to my laptop and the pretty pretty clothes and shoes on the Asos website are staring straight at me. Then I’m sat there thinking how did this happen? I don’t know what’s going on? But then something else inside of me pipes up and is shouting out things like; ‘you deserve this”look how amazing those jeans are’ *adds to saved items* ‘you already have the perfect shoes that will match that top, get it.’ *adds to saved items* And the process never ends! Does anybody else get this way too? This battle with yourself? Anyways, moving away from my personal psychoanalysis… here we have my top picks from Asos at the moment that have already made reservations in my wardrobe. Just click on a picture to shop it, there’s a nice little variety on there and with this ongoing, freezing cold weather situation, a lot of it should keep you snug as a bug! I’m obsessing over the navy and powder pink colour combo and have recently been introduced the beauty that is the cylindrical heeled boots! If any of you have any favourites yourself, share them with me! Because I’m filthy, stinkin’ rich dontcha know? *she exclaims with wishful, delusional thoughts.* Oh, and don’t forget to take a peek over on my Instagram to see some of these pieced together in full outfit form (when they eventually arrive that is) 🙂

Happy shopping!  xo

Some Seventies Sass

Just taking a moment to appreciate the sibilance in the title right there, I look at things like that and sometimes think to myself, ‘Gosh Iram, you’re so creative!’ Aaaaand the moment’s over.

So, It’s November already?!?! Which means I am so desperately trying to make the most of Autumn before the big freeze sets in and I’ll be buried under a blanket (most likely a duvet) whilst sat in front of the fire with a mug of hot chocolate watching shows on Netflix (by the way, still not over the fact that The Office US has been removed. It’s actually quite painful to talk about). There may be some possibility of crying and stressing over a few Uni assignments some time further down the line, but let’s not focus on that just now.

October flew away too quickly from me and a race has begun between me and the falling leaves. They’re still floating about spreading all their vibrant colourfulness, but I have still have too many autumnal outfits with too little time! I’m always always always spoilt for choices when it comes to Autumn, there are waaaay too many trends that I am in love with and I wish I could wear every single one of them all at the same time, but that would be a little ridiculous, even for me. So I have to keep telling myself ‘C’mon Iram, one outfit at a time.’

And ta-dah! Here is one of them… It’s belted, which is where I immediately think I can eat a little extra at dinner and not have to worry about the bloating situation that will occur ‘cos all I gotta do is loosen up the strings a little. It’s denim! Denim and I have an all-love kind of relationship, so no complaints there. It has pockets, meaning my phone has a new home for the day instead of being shoved in a bag. Overall, it releases all this inner sassiness I assume I would have had if I was strutting my stuff in this babe of an outfit during the seventies era. Basically, it’s the jumpsuit of my dreams! Three Trends Alert: Denim, Layering and Suede! Those boots just tie the whole look together and add an extra seventies kick (pun intended) to the outfit.

Hope you guys enjoy these shots of me trying to be candid and that against my neighbour’s garden wall (I’m sure he didn’t mind), whilst my sisters waited for me in the car with the windows rolled down, shouting at me to hurry up so we could get going. I swear, professionalism is dead these days.

“August rain: The best of the Summer gone, and the new fall not yet born, The odd uneven time.” -Sylvia Plath

Pretty much sums up the whole of a British summer if you ask me because let’s face it, Britain + Sun = world gone mad! So, for some reason Autumn becomes that time of year where everyone wants to camouflage themselves with the leaves and the trees, basically becoming one with nature. And I have to say, I’m not complaining! Autumn is something England can do well and I can almost hear the crisp and the crunch of those vibrant coloured leaves under my boots. Every shop on the high street is flourishing with autumnal  colours, 70s vibes, suede, suede, oh, and SUEDE! These are just a few of my favourite wardrobe pieces for Autumn…for now! I’m still shopping about, because a girl can’t be too prepared, right? Just a little something for this in-between season stage. Full looks of these pieces will be posted on my Instagram – outfit of the days is something I like to play with 😉

And a new creative writing little something (Autumn inspired, obviously) will be coming soon so stay tuned!
