as if!







 
 Polo neck- Forever 21
Backpack- Topshop
Shoes- Dr Martens
 

What is going on with the weather ay? It needs to make its mind because I don't know what to do with myself and apparently neither do the rest of Britain. The other day I drove past an old man parading around his (not so toned and v hairy) naked chest, much to the delight, I am sure, of the woman passing by wrapped in her woolly winter warmers.
I seem to subconsciously dress like I'm about to step onto the set of some 90's show (preferably The Fresh Prince... or Clueless). Just a quick post today because the majority of this outfit is vintage, thrifted or very old so I wont  ramble on about where everything is from .
Happy bank holiday!

POOL SLIDES?!

Ever since Celine debuted their furry beauties, dubbed the 'furkenstocks', for s/s13, Birkenstock-inspired sandals have been the go to shoe.
 This S/S14 you may have noticed the unlikely revival of the pool slide on high fashion runways. Like the Birkenstock, pool slides have divided the opinion of the world (a bit OTT) but I personally love this sporty member of the sandal family. I love that they are so unexpected and they're so un cool that they're cool. At first they just reminded me of a style most at home on the feet of sports players. But there's something strangely satisfying about wearing them as a fashion statement after the days I suffered as a child when dad would stroll up to the school gates wearing a pair of thick socks and sandals, so embarrassing.
The versions I am wearing are the originals for £15 but with all the hype Adidas have relaunched the look with their Adilette pool slides that are only £19, bargain! Affordable and comfy, you obviously don't have to wear them with socks if you're not into the whole socks and sandals thing but I just have an issue with bare toes.. So many of high fashion and high street stores a have joined the slide revolution from Gucci to Nike
 
 Anyway to conclude, pool slides are definitely one of my favourite trends to surface from the current 90's craze. You definitely need a whole lot of confidence rock them, people who aren't into/working in fashion will probably be wondering wtf you're on but hey ho.

I've seen so many different ways of styling them from suits to dresses.
