OUTFIT: Casual Braids

I know, I know, fashion bloggers are supposed to be polished to perfection with pictures shot in stunning locations. Well, clearly I'm failing at becoming one of those type bloggers. 

Not all fashion bloggers swan around in 6inch heels all day long you know! Maybe I'm just speaking for myself here? But, I don't mind if you know I don't always wear an outfit that looks 'put together'. Sometimes I just throw on something casual thing because, well, I'm sometimes I'm too lazy to iron and because sometimes, like yesterday, I just want to be comfy. I feel this look captures my typical casual wear; don't worry, I'm not about to start posting pictures of me lounging around in my hoodie etc!

I'm really terrible at doing my hair, but I love braids at the moment, and I can just about make a standard plait in my hair - I just wish it was a bit longer so my layers didn't all poke out. So, I worked in a loose braid to match my plaited belt. I really want to challenge myself to create a better style, maybe one like this:

Anyway, I wore this outfit to the cinema last night. Although it was lovely and sunny we decided to catch a late film as I was desperate to see Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Anyone else seen the film yet? What do you think of this casual outfit?


  1. I'd love to see a tutorial on how to braid hair like that last image :) If you manage to do it, you should really consider posting one, I'm lucky if I manage to braid my hair normally :$ haha xxx

  2. I love your outfit it looks gorgeous, I went and saw it yesterday and cried like a baby! xx

  3. I love braids too but my hair never ends up looking right! I love your braid and I love this outfit - it's so real.

  10. LOVE your hair and I love this outfit, I'm actually GLAD you aren't in 6 inch heels because I personally cannot walk in 6in heels haha So i love casual outfits like this! ;)


  11. Thanks Jessica! I mostly wear flats, but think I look better in heels for outfit posts as I am soo short (hence why I'm stood on tiptoes, lol). x

  12. Thanks Amy! I wouldn't be jealous if I were you, your hair always looks fab...I don't have many days where mine looks good, it's a love/hate relationship :) x
