A bloomin’ beret!

I’m currently in bed, cuppa tea at hand with youtube videos playing in the background, on my own (for the first time in bloomin’ ages) because Callum is absolutely full of the cold, which he has no doubt caught from me, soz hun pls still love me. Why I feel the need to tell you exactly what I’m doing at the start of every blog post I will never know but I feel like it adds a little bit of something! (I actually stuttered to write this 2 nights ago and I’m no longer in my pjs, nor watching the TV and my tan isn’t as full on anymore, but I digress) At least you know my life isn’t all that glam, which it really really isn’t, Ive spent about 80% off the holidays in my pjs, with no makeup and the classic bitch bun on the top of my head. But as I’m lay here with my ultra dark tan developing, it got me thinking about holidays and with that I quickly mentally drifted to Paris and then about my unworn Beret in my wardrobe! I’ve been loving the whole baker boy and beret trend for a while now and I did finally buy own beret whilst christmas shopping a couple of weeks ago, but I’m still yet to wear it out properly! So I’m going to have to make a conscious effort to actually go out and wear it, and with that, photograph it too! So come on Cal, drink up your lemsip and get better because we need to shoot!

I just love the whole trend, actually I love any hat trend! I feel like they really make an outfit that little bit more put together, and being a semi- lazy girl at heart, I’m totally down for the minimal effort with maximum impact look! A pair of black jeans, a cosy striped jumper, a pair of gucci dupe loafers because I’m still a student and can’t quite justify the real deal, and bam a beret and you’ve got yourself an insta worthy outfit! This time next month I will be adventuring around Italy, of which I may or may not have a little challenge set for myself, so keep your eyes peeled for a bit more about that later, and I fully intend on wearing the crap out of this beret… and actually, this whole outfit!

Now there isn’t exactly a specific message as such for this blog post, but does there really need to be one? I put up an Instagram post yesterday as it marked the 1 year anniversary of my Grandad passing away, I can’t believe I’m even typing those words as it honestly feels like yesterday, you can read all about the day and everything leading up to it in this post here. But like I said in the caption of the photo, he really was the most fearless man I ever had the pleasure of meeting and I wasn’t filled with complete sadness in my heart, although there were a few moments in the morning that really did pull at my heart! I felt I had an increase in desire to pursue this whole blogging thing, I really want to push my own personal boundaries and say yes to everything that I fear, because life is too damn short to think about the maybe’s, and the what if’s! So hug your loved ones a little tighter, step out of your comfort zone and spread a little kindness…

Until next time,

S x

    Another beret recruit! I am very much here for this look, too. Thinking of you as you mark the anniversary of your grandad darling – I’m very close to my nan and carry a lot of fear about losing her. Great post and you’re right – you don’t always need to have a momentous, earth-moving idea to justify a blog post. This is ace! LC xx

      I’m a total beret convert! Thankyou so much for your kind words, it is a scary thing having our relatives get older, all we can do it just hold them a little longer and a littler tighter! Thankyou so much for reading xxx
