Boat Hat

Boat Hat- ASOS
Jumper- Style Stalker
Necklace- Topshop
This jumper was another good find by Australian brand StyleStalker, i love the open back its heavy loose knit feel! Im just a major fan of knitwear with a twist really.

I wore this hat out for a few drinks last night and I think its safe to say all of my friends had it on at some point! oh and i almost left it in the taxi, it must have been just one big adventure for my little hat last night .

Happy Thursday everyone :) I cant wait for it to be the weekend again! Yay.

Lots of Love

Black Suede

I really love suede , especially black suede and i especially love these black suede dungarees by Cheap Monday at Urban Outfitters.

Ive worn them with a basic white vest from Zara a fringed leather bag from my friend Emily and these sandals from Kurt Geiger (which have an amazing chunky platform cork heel that you cant see here).

Ive been after one of these headbands for so long but the first time they got them on ASOS they sold out so fast! Fortunately now they have loads of different styles in, there are so many to chose from. oh and these are my favourite feather earrings from Topshop which i now only have one of :(

I ended up wearing the tasseled AllSaints dress I blogged earlier to the wedding on Saturday, big thanks to my friend Eilidh for lending it to me. AND i also managed to steal my boyfriend's sword and hold it hostage in my belt for a while!

Enjoy :)

Love Nic

Two Tone

Two tone Leather Jacket- Topshop
 Jumper- H&M
Necklace- Topman
Leather Skirt- Vintage
Boots- Kurt Geiger

Sorry about the totally photo heavy post today guys i just really enjoy this jacket, I think its my new favourite!

I decided to wear a little leather on leather yesterday for the degree show last night at Gray's (RGU's Art school). It was really good actually, some really impressive stuff.

One of my favourites was a jewelry collection (of course) that was designed by my friend Kelly, although i didn't actually realise it was hers until afterwards.

I loved how she contrasted feminine and angelic feathers with heavy chainmail using a mixture of harnesses, Collars and shoulder pieces to create some totally unique pieces, AMAZING:

I totally recommend you have a look at her site here.

So we ended up going for a few drinks after the show last night which then inevitably lead to Tequila and left me feeling a bit worse for wear today.

But its ok, I'm just hanging out with my little dog until i get ready to go to a wedding later on tonight. I'm not too sure what I'm going to wear yet but I'm sure I'll find something! My boyfriend is an usher for the ceremony so had to get all kilted up this morning. I have to say he looked very becoming and i was rather jealous of all his accessories- including a sword! I'm going to have to get me one.

Snakebite leggings

Snakebite leggings- StyleStalker
Jumper- American Apparel
Bag- Vintage
Necklace- Miss Selfridge

So after their small adventure to my neighbours house for a few days, my Snakebite leggings by Stylestalker finally arrived! Since then they have already payed a visit to Rockness were they were involved in some Ninja action as well as almost being taken out by a massive truck and some pretty heavy rain but thankfully they are still in one piece!

Stylestalker is definitely one of my favourites, Sue-Ann San and Rachel Zeilic are complete geniuses! I just get so impatient waiting for a delivery all the way from Australia but luckily ASOS has started stocking a few of their items.

p.s this is one of my Guinea Pigs- Luella, she looks a little bit homeless but that's why i love her.

Full Cirlcle

I'm still a big fan of the midi skirt and fell in love with this one by Full Circle as soon as i saw it on ASOS. They didn't actually have any of my size left so I had to investigate further and manged to track one down from their own website here.

I've never really come across any of their stuff before but they have a few cool pieces, kind of reminds me of Alexander Wang who i am a massiiiive fan of he never seems to get it wrong.

Rockness last weekend was amazing fun but i now feel like i have come down with Glandular fever, Sinusitis, Flu and a throat infection all at once! It was definitely worth it though and on the plus side I am now living off Yoghurt and Ice cream :)

Black Navajo

I'd never be able to wear this kind of outfit here in the UK, but theres no harm in styling for those hypothetical situations... :)

This is the kind of thing id love to wear to a festival in the sun like Coachella, Sonar or Benicassim but I think the hat is the only item that will make the cut into my Rockness packing list for tomorrow ! (which i havent even started yet, aahhh)

Its actually forecast to rain the whole weekend but Its ok, it will just add to the festival fun! don't worry, I will try and get some good snaps to blog to you all at the start of next week hopefully involving some kind of massive mud slide.

OH and my ASOS package with my snakebite leggings appeared! After trawling around all of my neighbours houses in search of them this morning, one of them finally turned up at my door this afternoon with them, DELIGHTED. I don't know why the delivery man thought it was OK to drop them off at a completely different address though...

Anyways hope everyone has a good weekend, especially anyone going to Rockness.

Beaded Skirts

Bronze Beaded skirt - Topshop
Tshirt- American Apparel
Bag- Gift from Emily
Headband- H&M
Ive got lots of love for beaded skirts just now,  you can dress them up or down and wear them with virtually anything and still look fashionable.

I think this is my second favourite beaded number of the moment, beaten by this beauuuutiful one here that my friend Emily has from AllSaints:

 It is amazing! AllSaints also have a few other beaded skirts that you can find here.

I think its far more worthwhile investing in an amazing skirt like this rather than a dress that you would probably only wear once because there are so many different ways you can wear it. So if you're feeling indecisive over a skirt- Purchase justified :)

A really lovely friend is taking me to see Kings of Leon in Edinburgh in two weekends time, i'm so excited and cant stop listening to this:

Levi's and Lazy Days

I cant remember the last time I've actually done nothing... but today i got the rare chance to just chill in my garden with my puppy, reading magazines.

Its been ridiculously sunny these last few days so i ended up going for a few drinks last night with friends and naturally ended up sourcing a wind machine, dancing to Sclub7, making friends with a man sleeping on the street and causing a riot in the 24hour shop.

This is what i've been wearing today, even though its been a chilled out day i feel like i always have to make some kind of an effort with my outfit.

It's feeling totally summery just now, i hope the weather stays like this for next weekend! Camping in the rain-not so fun.

Happy Friday!
