Motel Vintage DIY Challenge

The lovely girls over at Motel Rocks asked if I would be interested in their vintage DIY challenge and seeing that I love vintage AND diy I couldn't resist! They sent me over one of their vintage levis jackets along with some fabric paint and patches to get me started and then I was free to do whatever the hell I wanted with it! As you probably know, I predominantly wear vintage as I love wearing things that no one else will really have and customising pieces makes it even more unique. I'm already a fan of Motel but I especially love the fact they sell vintage too as it's great to see pieces being renewed and loved all over again.

 I wanted my jacket to be colourful and sassy and I'm pretty pleased with the outcome! All the steps of how I made the jacket are down below :) 


Top & Trousers: Vintage
Shoes: Office

Ways to wear thigh highs: Part 3

Maxi Dress: Vintage
Skirt: Motel Rocks
Faux Fur: Select

My third and final part of my 'ways to wear' thigh high boots series! 

Today's outfit has some 70s boho vibes about it and has probably been the most comfortable way to wear these boots out of the three ways as I don't feel so exposed. I saw a photo of sienna miller wearing a split maxi dress with thigh high boots the other day which was the inspo for this outfit!

I wore my maxi dress unbuttoned and open, teamed with a zebra mini skirt to show off the boots more! Having to wear sunnies to hide my ridiculous eye bags- I'm having major sleep probs at the moment which is making me look about 30 years older :(

Hope you enjoyed my ways to wear thigh high boots mini series! I loved doing it and if there's anything else you would like to see on here please feel free to make suggestions. I have a fun DIY challenge coming this weekend so keep an eye out for that too <3

Ways to wear thigh highs: Part 2

Hat: River Island
Jumper: Vintage via House of Jam
Boots: ASOS
Rucksack: Motel Rocks

One of my favourite ways to wear my thigh high boots in the day is with an oversized jumper- so comfy! For even chillier days you could chuck a faux fur coat over the top too. 

SO obsessed with the print on this vintage jumper dress <3 <3 who says Winter had to be all about dark clothes?!

I'm not sure when part 3 will be up as I still need to shoot it but hopefully over the next couple of days :)

Ways to wear thigh high boots: Part 1

Heart Jacket: Vintage c/o We are Cow
Blouse, Skirt & Fluffy Stole: Vintage

As I mentioned in my last post I thought I would do a mini series of ways to wear thigh high boots. They are such a huge statement piece for Autumn/Winter but I know some people are unsure of how to wear them day and night. I wish we didn't have to worry about the stigma and connotations attached to thigh high boots because then styling them would be a lot easier for everyone. Thanks for that creepy men- ugh! Anyway ignoring that connotation, I think thigh high boots are very powerful and every girl should own a pair! I literally want to wear mine every day <3

So, Part 1 is my way of wearing them with a skirt for a more dressy occasion, i.e out for drinks or a meal. I teamed my skirt and boot combo with a statement jacket and scarf for extra warmth and comfort. 

Tomorrow's post will show you a way of wearing them in the daytime :)

Choker: DIY from a Motel Rocks Skirt
Unitard: Motel Rocks
Jacket: Nasty Gal

You will be forgiven for thinking I've got my halloween costume sorted already but believe it or not this outfit isn't actually fancy dress. I am loving feeling like cat woman/shania twain today! (feel free to take halloween inspo from this though haha)

Motel unitards are the comfiest thing EVER and even though I don't tend to wear head to toe bodycon, I can't resist these jumpsuits because they're so versatile. I'm currently writing this blog post with a bright jumper chucked over the top of it instead of my amazing shaggy jacket (which I have been dying to get back out for ages). 

If you follow me on insta you will have seen that I've decided to do a mini blog posts series on how I style thigh high boots which will start tomorrow so keep an eye out :)

Shirt: Vintage
Faux Fur: Select
Jeans: Motel Rocks
Shoes: ASOS

ANOTHER outfit with a furry stole but I literally cannot stop wearing them! So I was selling this amazing Missoni jacket on Sassy World but it didn't sell for a couple of weeks so I decided that it must be fate to be mine (perks of the job). I'm not sure I will ever tire of polka dots!

Short & sweet today, hope you're all keeping warm and dry <3

Faux Fur Stole: Select
Top, Trousers & Bag: Vintage

The perks to it being a shitty rainy day is that no one is around when you wanna take blog photos. Even though I obviously choose to have my photo taken in public quite frequently for this blog, I find it the most uncomfortable and awkward thing when someone walks past. It makes me feel SO vain haha :/

I've been lusting after duster coats for a little while to wear during this transitional period between summer and autumn as I still don't think it's quite cold enough for faux fur coats yet! This lightweight pink one is by Pink Soda and is SO gorge. 

Even though I'm clearly a fan of colourful clothes, I LOVE chunky black boots for winter and after wearing my pairs to bits last year I was on the hunt for some new ones when La Moda kindly offered to send me some of their beauts! They are the queens of chunky boots :D

P.s I've been blogging for 3 years and I still don't know how to make all my photos the same size, help?!
