a bohemian in pyjamas

That is what I am today, a bohemian in pyjamas. My blog is meant to record my adventure to finding my personal style, and today I felt a big step closer to finding just that. Lately I've been feeling quite uninspired, unlike myself. But today I wore this bohemian look to go shopping with my dad, a rare occasion, but a sweet one nonetheless. And yes, I did get a few inspiring pick-me-ups which I'm sure you'll be seeing soon.

Oh yeah, the pyjamas thing. These pants are pyjamas. Like, literally, they came as part of a set. But I completely forgot about them and when I rediscovered them I had a tough time deciding what they were. I've decided I'll be wearing them as pants from now on, seeing as they are made of an almost crepe-like material, not typical jersey. Very strange, I know, but everyone said they couldn't tell, so there.

Good karma and all that.

spring wishlist

My student loan could not come soon enough, I am desperate to own all of these pretty things for spring! I've always been a fan of bohemian jewellery but realised I need to add to my collection, you can never have too much. I've been after this jacket and playsuit for what feels like forever and I'm determined to get my hands on them, the playsuit would look fab with some red lips and long necklaces, right?

los pollos hermanos

I am so psyched to finally be wearing this t-shirt on the blog. At Christmas I did the dorkiest thing and got this one for myself and a 'better call Saul' t-shirt for Beth, my best friend. We are breaking bad buddies.

I bet you're all sick of the sight of this but it's that time of year where blogs are being nominated for company's style blogger awards. I'm up for best personal style blog (the top option) and to be honest I'm just aiming to be shortlisted, for career purposes. So yes, if you want, you can nominate me here and if you do there's a chance to win £250 at missguided, not too shabby, eh?
