Happy Hippie



The return of the flare is officially here and looks like its set to stay. Finally I can rock a pair without getting weird looks from strangers... 


FLOPPY DAISY HAT: eBay (£4)
PASTEL DAY DREAMER CREEPERS: Dawntroversial via Depop (£15)

As I’ve mentioned before the 70s, along with the 90s, is my absolute fave era for fashion. I can’t get enough of everything that’s hitting the high street right now. This denim is just so lightweight and comfy. I know everyone’s probably given the JONI super high waisted jeans a shot but is it just me that feels like I’m pouring out of them? Major muffin top potential if you ask me. Out with the skinny and in with the flare!

These jeans sit perfectly on the waist making it easy to just throw on any old crop top for a cool but comfy look. That’s not to say that this is just any old crop top; I’ve been living in my gorgeous metallic cami recently. It’s so retro. In 2015, where everyone is slightly too reserved and PC for my liking, it’s great to release my inner hippie flower child. Speaking of flowers, how awesome is this daisy chain hat? It was under a fiver from the ‘fancy dress’ section on eBay. I love a good bargain and often get asked if I’m sporting a fancy dress costume on a regular outing. Maybe I should ditch charity hunting and vintage rummaging for a trip to my local fancy dress shop. I’ll be sure to inform you on any updates.

It may come as a shock to you all but I’ve ditched the docs and traded them in for these tie dye creepers. Didn’t really get a great close up (and the flares cover most of them really) but I’ll include a better pic in a future blog post. I could only describe them as a pastel princess’ dream. Each pair is bespoke and hand painted by the very talented Dawn, whose website you can check out here. They retail at £79 (which is totally worth it for the amount of effort that goes in) but, being the little bargain hunter that I am, I picked up a pair for only £15 on Depop. If you haven’t already got it, go and download Depop on your phone, NOW! It’s like eBay meets Instagram. I have received numerous goodies as a result of Depop and also use it as a selling platform. You can have a look at my shop here.
