On the weekends I try to catch up with blog reading, I like to check out the comment section because most of the time this is how I discover other bloggers & their own platforms. That's how I came across Pandora Sykes. If you have yet to come across her blog you should check it out, its definitely worth reading. Pandora's style is a mixture of quirky bohemian with boyish Parisian chic and I like that she doesn't take her style to seriously, its fun and relatable,
This outfit was inspired by Sykes, she's certainly influenced me to buy quite a few more neck scarves, especially bandana's.
These boyfriend fit ripped denim shorts found me while I scolded another shopper in the sale section of H&M. *Are you ready? Its story time*... Like a vulture she attacked the rails with unnecessary energy swiping the hangers back and forth on the rail, the falling items didn't discourage her, nope, instead she watched them fall, stepped over them and went to another rail. Now I haven't worked in retail in over 3 yrs but when I did it was for 9 yrs plus and let me tell you this was just one of my pet peeves about working in fashion retail and one of the main reasons why I prefer online shopping! So it irked me (and took a lot of willpower not to batter her on the behalf of all sales assistants worldwide) and I couldn't just walk away like she had so I picked them up. I know old habits die hard but that's when I found them. I've only really seen this shorts length on guys but I've started to see them becoming just as popular as booty shorts in the women's section. They pretty much go with everything like all shorts do but I love the boyish knee length and the edgy rips.
I am starting to buy into more loose fitting clothing items and I love this oversized jumper, also from H&M and in the sale! It was my "Erika Bowes/Charlotte Martin" inspired purchase, these bloggers are slouchy silhouette queens. I wouldn't normally wear brogues with shorts, but I think it helps finish the look perfectly and gives it a soft masculine edge.
Who's style are you channelling at the moment or who's on your blogger radar? And you know what I would love to know what your pet peeves are while your out shopping!
