I find myself going through phases of liking my hair a certain way, or wearing a certain color or pattern excessively (such as black...ahem), etc. and i'm going through one of these phases at the mo! I've really been loving denim jackets, beachy/wavy hair, and floral prints (in case you didn't catch the hint from the title of this post ;). All three of these current faves are orientated around spring/summer, so i think these will be loves of mine for a while...
1. Denim jackets: The jacket i'm wearing in the photos in this post is from the beloved Primark. It's crazy how many outfits you can put this over - dresses, dressier tops, more casual tops, the list goes onnnnnn. It makes me feel a bit more put together and i don't know about you, but i just feel a bit 'cooler' wearing a jean jacket... maybe i'm just a dork. ;) Many people may say you shouldn't wear denim-on-denim, but i think as long as you're not trying to match the washes of the denim, it's fine (as i display below with the jacket in question and some dark-wash skinny jeans).
Denim jackets are perfect for the spring and summer since they're light, but still provide a bit of warmth and coverage, and are versatile. :)
2. Beachy/wavy hair: I believe this current love of mine was sparked by the purchasing of Charles Worthington's Front Row Rough & Tough Salt Spray, which i got in Boots whilst in London. It helps add a bit of texture to your hair and helps to bring out my natural waves. My hair routine as of late has been as follows: shower at night, brush hair out with Tangle Teezer (that bright pink thing in the photo below), fishtail braid my hair, spritz it with hairspray and let it dry a bit overnight. The next morning, i then take the braid out and it's still a bit damp, so i ruffle it a bit & scrunch it with my hands as well. I spray the Salt Spray all over and with a diffuser, i blow dry my hair, scrunching more with my hands as i go. Once it's dry, i hairspray it and if i want, i'll use my straightener to curl a few pieces of my hair. I then finish off with a bit of Umberto Giannini's Backcomb in a Bottle. :)
Since i don't wash my hair everyday, i simply brush out my hair again with the Tangle Teezer before i go to bed (my hair still maintains a bit of the waves) and put my hair back in the fishtail braid to sleep. Sometimes i add a bit more of the Salt Spray in the following morning and scrunch it, if not i just hairspray it and put more Backcomb in a Bottle in.
3. Floral print: I don't think i'll never not like myself a bit of floral print to be honest. It makes me feel so girly and there are so many different ways to wear it... speaking of, i am really craving some floral shorts and floral sneakers at the moment, they would be so perfect for the summer! The top i'm wearing in the photo above is another piece i got from London and it's from New Look. It's so flowy, sheer, and gorgeous. I'm obsessed.
