I'm thinking about going vegan fully.  I tried it before a few years ago but there weren't really all the ingredients as readily available as they are now and I feel like there's a lot more options when you eat out too.  But then I'm like pizza.  Haha.  My diet is about 80% plant based anyway, can I just be 80%?!

What do you think about being vegan?

In The Navy

Navy is a colour I've always loved to wear.  I remember my mother wearing a lot of navy whilst I was growing up and how she loved to dress me and my sister in it also.  I think navy is a really classy colour to wear and is a great alternative to black.  They say you shouldn't wear navy and black but I ignore that rule as I don't believe there should be any rules when it comes to fashion.

The classic navy look is when paired with white although you have to be careful with this pairing as it can come off a little too sailoresq.  A lot of people think that only black and white are basic colours that go with everything but I disagree.  Navy is definitely a basic colour too that can be adapted to any outfit.




My mum recently bought me this beautiful navy shirt from Banana Republic on her trip to New York last month and I just love it.  I tucked it into a black skater skirt (see, ignoring the rule) and wore it to work and then onto a bar later that evening.  I think it looked super cute, especially with the silver jazz shoes for a little pop of something standout.

I've picked out some of my favourite navy pieces below...

Flared Pants Obsession

I have a new addiction and they're called flared trousers.  I remember back when I was at college and my friends and I would wear them all the time in denim or corduroy.  Then all of sudden skinny jeans came out and it was totally uncool to wear anything loose and that was the end of that.  But as with everything in fashion it comes back around and the flared trousers were no exception.

What I love about flared pants is their ability to instantly make you look taller and slimmer.  They have such a flattering cut about them that will suit any body shape, something that can be hard to find in clothing especially denim.  So yay for the flares making a comeback, here are my faves out there at the moment.

How do you feel about the flared trouser trend?
