To Slide? Or not to Slide?
“Ugly” and “Horrideous” were the first things that came to mind when I started seeing the Slider-Sandal trend slowly tip-toeing around the blogosphere but here I am, bookmarking an image of the most fabulous pair of Isabel Marant dupes from H&M…
It’s strange isn’t it? The fashion world I mean. Designers take something so basic and quite vile and somehow with the help of their unique vision, transform it into this seasons it-item. Yes, initially I detested the sandals. They remind me of European tourists and dodgy supply teachers… however, I began to understand the appeal – nobody wants to look like they’re trying too hard nowadays, and these sandals epitomise that “fuss-free” attitude we spend meticulous minutes trying to re-create when forming that “I Woke Up Like This…” top-knot bun.
When looking into this “Off-Duty” mantra that everyone (including myself) is trying to perfect, I also came to the conclusion that the sandal is the sartorially perfect choice of footwear for another SS14 favourite, the slouchy wide leg trousers (and I also happen to think they look pretty dope with a leather mini skirt!).
I think the one thing that’s held me back on buying a pair is the fear of the whole look going out of style the minute I cave in and eventually buy a pair but since I just want to dip my toe into this trend I think I’ll settle for those gorgeous sandals from H&M (once they FINALLY release them..) rather than invest in the B-Stocks.
What are your thoughts on the Slider-Sandal trend? Will you dare to sport the dodgy supply teacher look? Let me know what you think.

It’s around that time of year in Britain where the weather is more confusing than ever, where we have to find the perfect balance of keeping warm from the April showers in the morning and keeping cool during the sunny afternoons. Today’s outfit was kind of based around that. 

My most prized possessions are my hat and boyfriend coat, which are both from Primark. I think one of the main reasons as to why their my fave pieces is because they look quite expensive, dare I say… quite TOPSHOP-esque?…

My actual outfit underneath is quite simple; an oversized grey tee, tucked into a leather mini-skirt. However, I think the hat and coat really elevated such a basic outfit.

I like how you've kind of incorporated your love of magazines into your latest press event post, you can tell that magazines really influence you! However, personally I like how your posts use to look, with all the text below the image.... but whatever you decide to do, I'll still read it boo! hahaha

Just finished reading your post on the Childish Gambino concert - ah! It made me wish I was there, you're so lucky. My friend went on the same day as you, she was telling me how much she envied you after he took your ring! Haha. I also read some of your other posts, you have a great writing style - keep it up honey xx
