// three ways to wear: Missguided 'Mairin' Platforms

MISSGUIDED 'MAIRIN' PLATFORMS
AMERICAN APPAREL SHIRT // TOPSHOP JONI JEANS // NEW LOOK CLUTCH (similar)
MISSGUIDED JUMPSUIT*
ASOS JUMPER (similar) // VINTAGE JEANS (similar) // PERSUNMALL BAG*
When I saw those Stella McCartney platforms circulating the social networks a little while ago, I knew that I just had to have a piece of the cleated-soled action. I came so close to purchasing River Island's offerings but by the time I'd stopped dithering and decided that I wanted to buy them, they'd sold out (standard procedure), so Missguided came to the rescue! As soon as I spotted these on the site I didn't waste a second in snapping them up, and they live up to all of my expectations: ankle-breaking-ly gravity defying-ly high, magnificently chunky and just down right fabulous. I've styled them three ways just to showcase their utter versatility - I think the last look is my favourite! What's yours?

// the vagabonds

TOPSHOP JONI JEANS // MONKI TOP // CHOIES COAT* // MANGO BAG // PANDORA RING // VAGABOND SANDALS // ACCESSORIZE SUNGLASSES
Last week I FINALLY turned eighteen, so after a heady weekend of celebration, inebriation and just all-round good vibes with all of my favourite people, I am ready to blog again! The Nikon D5200 was one of my presents, so this is my first attempt at using it to take blog photos - I absolutely love it and I'm so happy with how the photos have turned out! I will be selling the cameras that I used to use, so keep your eyes peeled for details in a future post. As exam stress started to build towards the end of the last term I took a bit of a blogging hiatus, but my new toy has definitely inspired me to get back into the habit of posting on a more regular basis! The Vagabonds were also a birthday present, which I was delighted to receive seeing as I've been after them since last summer. An ugly, chunky shoe is definitely the best kind of shoe.

// the co-ord

MOTEL CO-ORD* // TOPSHOP SKATERS // MISSGUIDED CARDIGAN* // LA MODA BAG* // ACCESSORIZE NECKLACE
All of my favourite things in one outfit: monochrome, slip-ons, silver hardware, coordination and this fab Missguided cardigan. I got it a little while ago but recently rediscovered it, mainly owing to the fact that it matches with the latest additions to my ever-growing slip-on collection. It's such a great throw-on-and-go piece, and I've been wearing it pretty much 24/7. The co-ord is another new favourite, and I've really enjoyed wearing the pieces both together and separately depending on the occasion - the monochromatic possibilities are simply endless! On the subject of co-ords, I'd just like to take this opportunity to say that I genuinely feel as if selling their co-ords in packs is the best thing that Motel has ever done! I've currently got my eye on this one and this one. They couldn't be more perfect for the summer!
