Practical And Comfortable

11/04/2015


What I'm Wearing:
Topshop Oversized Striped Shirt (similar here)
Aldo Cross Body Bag (similar here)

As much as I love dressing up and being creative, sometimes there is no harm in dressing basic. My hair is in desperate need of a touch-up; a few more highlights and a cut to remove all the dead ends, therefore I've discovered the best way to not have to think about my hair is to throw on a fedora. Et voila. I wore this look last week to visit the Boiler Shop Steamer with Hannah, a food and drink festival that is held in newcastle on the first Saturday of every month. I'll not go into great detail as I do have a blogpost planned to show what would be in store for you if you did chose to visit, but I thoroughly enjoyed myself. As the weather wasn't particularly great outside and we chose to visit during the day. I decided a jean and shirt combination would be suffice. I love my topshop shirt I bagged in the sale last year. The photographs don't show you but the sleeves and back the stripes are pale grey, adding a great contrast with the front detail.

After an exhausting week, I am so glad it is finally the weekend. I am looking forward to doing absolutely nothing today as I usually always have plans or am constantly on the go. I've made the decision to start feeding my mind on a regular basis and after many recommendations I purchased '#GirlBoss' and 'Not That Kind Of Girl' to start reading. Hopefully providing me the burst of inspiration I've been lacking over recent months. Needless to say #GirlBoss was everything I needed and more, finishing the book in two days. I cannot recommend it enough as it has made me more motivated to take hold of my life and realise that I am in control of my own success or failures. I am a fighter and a #girlboss never gives up dreaming.
