Style me

As posted here, I went on a shopping trip the other day where I picked up lots of garments and trinkets from second hand shops in my home town. It was good fun, Ive got a lot to show from it and my bank balance is still in shape! However, I bought one item that Im struggling to wear at the minute. I previously said I bought it for summer/spring, but with the weather being quite nice I want to get it out of my wardrobe now!

So, Im taking inspiration from @StyleOnTheCouch fantastic post: http://bit.ly/ukeAGy  where she asked for ideas on how to style her red jeans, it hasnt gone unnoticed how many followers, commenters and blog fans she has, and rightly so! its quickly becoming one of my favourite blogs to read, too. Because of the blogs large fan base, the post recieved a lot of ideas and styling tips from her readers. The advice she went for left her looking casual and chic http://bit.ly/zbdlZR

My blog is still a baby so Im not expecting a lot, but if you have any ideas on how to style this 90’s pastel pink jacket – hit me with them! Much like StyleOnTheCoach; Im interested in accessories, hair styling, anything and everything that will get this £3 baby out of my wardrobe NOW! So let your inner stylist (we all have one!) go wild! Like I said to my friend the other day, Im willing to stand out like a sore thumb and make several fashion faux pas than blend in with the walls and go unnoticed!

Candy Cane Stripes

Before I get going I’d like to say that I’ve left my camera in my home town and I’m relying on my poor excuse of a mobile to take photos, so that means asking people to take my photo which I can not stress how much I hate! These were taken by my less than enthusiastic boyf, bless him.

Oh my lord, I love them.

I wanted a similar Topshop pair last year that were blue stripes, but they sold out everywhere so this year I thought I wouldn’t risk it again and get a pair while the weathers totally unsuitable (reasonable?!) I’ve named these my “beni shorts” I nearly always name my clothes, doesn’t everyone? “The birthday dress” the “Christmas day pj’s” the “interview jacket” the “‘ I’m important and do need this’ handbag” “the Grimsby band tee tshirt” the “I just popped out trousers” IM NOT JOKING.

Anyway, so they’re called ‘beni shorts’ because I plan on going to Benicassim this summer, beni is a huge festival in Spain (Google it, when I talk about it I get too excited) these are going to be my festival staple!

I’ve teamed these shorts with a pink light knit ¾ sleeve jumper; it’s a funny shade of pink, it’s not quite pastel or hot; it’s almost got a neon vibe about it. Don’t cringe, neon is the devil but it seems to work, doesn’t it? With my silly head band and beautiful thrifted ruck sake Im 100% ready for SS12.
