Daisy Chains & Denim

Blouse - C/O SheIn  Jeans - Topshop
Bag - Skinnydip London   Sunglasses - ASOS

Spring and autumn are my two absolute favourite seasons, so when I get the chance to properly don spring attire I jump at it! I find dressing for spring quite hit and miss, as one day you need boots, 3 layers and a scarf and hat and the next day it's really really sunny and you can wear a dress with bare legs (hence my previous post) This outfit is a perfect example of the type of spring outfit I love, sandals, a thin jacket and cute blouse. Yeah, this feels like a very me outfit, which is always a good feeling! I really love both this blouse and denim jacket, and the blouse is a steal for under £20 from Shein, so definitely check it out if you're in the market for a pretty lil' embroidered blouse, then again, they are everywhere at the moment, so the likelihood is you've probably already got something similar!

York Photo Diary

Photo Diary's are some of my favourite posts to put together and share on my lil' corner of the internet, and today I have another one for ya (obvs)
Last week me and my parents spent 5(ish) days in York, it's somewhere my parents have visited a number of times but I haven't been since I was little, or so my mum says, I can't remember going, I was only 3 though, so it's kinda understandable I guess. 
We had a really lovely few days, and we even went to the seaside and to a chocolate factory (winner!) I've pulled together some of my favourite shots from our little trip, and also put my weekly vlog featuring the trip at the end too!

Bare Leg Weather?

Dress - H&M  Shoes - Urban Outfitters
Sunglasses - ASOS  Necklace - Primark 

Believe it or not, last weekend what felt like the summer hit the UK, which meant I took the plunge and went all out in the nice weather, donning a summery dress and everything! I wanted to make the most of the warm weather, cause being the cynic that I am, I was almost 90% sure that the weather would be rubbishy the next day. Leading to a rather out of character outfit for lil' old me, in this summery H&M slip style dress! Putting this post together now I'm still quite surprised I left the house in this outfit, just due to the fact it's so unlike me to wear a dress and bare legs and bare arms, I'm normally a total layers and jeans kinda gal. 
Either way, in true British weather style, the next few days were cold and grey so I got to pull my jeans and layers back out of the wardrobe, and I definitely won't be packing them away any time soon either!

Roses are Red

Skirt - H&M
Boots - ASOS

Embroidery and flowers are everywhere at the moment!When this shirt arrived from SheIn  I couldn't wait to wear it and style it, as it really is super pretty. Although if you are considering buying it, I would definitely recommend sizing down, as you can probably tell this shirt is rather over-sized! I went for my normal size and its rather baggy on me, so definitely go a size or two down if you're interested in picking this beauty up!

Oh, I also did a hair cut thing too! My hair was annoying me, so I very unceremoniously got it all cut off, I may regret it in a few weeks but right now I'm really happy with it! Sometimes you just need a change, ey?

God Bless

Well, well, well, we're here again. 
I really can't believe March is over, but it is! 
March was a month filled with wanderlust and dreaming, oh and I also got my first tattoo, which was pretty major! It was also a very busy month when it comes to my uni work, as I had a huge deadline on the last day of the month! 
This post is a lil' round up of my March, with a little bit of help from my Instagram account! If ya want to follow me my user name is @Holljc or you can check my account out, here.

So when i heard @girlstolelondon's story i wanted to help (as much as a lil' hobbit could) @girlstolelondon has designed a collection of amazing slogan tshirts. The proceeds from this go to a breast cancer charity, and to help her maintain a lil' normality whilst going through her cancer treatment. To hear about it all in her own words check out @girlstolelondon's website
