Smart, edgy and girly all at once? Yeah, go on then.

I'm loving high waisted anything at the moment. It's a really classic style and suits everyone.
This look has a basis of being smart but I like to add a bit of edge which is where my chain necklace comes in handy (wow that sounds gangsta).

I've recently discovered backcombing although still struggle with doing it to anything but the ends of my hair, which, as you can see, makes for a very bouffant bun! I like to add hair accessories like this to give it something else. Va va voom? You decide!

Flowers - Primark

This beat up looking leather satchel is a new purchase. Unfortunately I can't claim a beautiful tale of how I was clearing out an elderly family members attic and came across this gem that once held their school books. No, I found this baby on a stall at Glastonbury. The lady has a shop called Carpe Diem on Chalk Farm Road in Camden. This satchel goes with anything and it is totally vintage and awesome.

Layering jewellery is something I love. I don't do matching, so anything mismatched gets the thumbs up. I think it can give your look an ethnic feel but at the same time if I wore this with a biker jacket and jeans it would still work.
