This is my first official blog post so please be patient but most importantly wish me luck! I dragged my bestie Poppy out on such a beautiful morning to finally take some photos for my blog. The lighting was just perfect so I had to snap up the opportunity to take some photos, and quite frankly it was the only day where it hadn't actually rained. Feeling a little delicate after a night out in Clapham, I thought it would be a good idea to attempt to rise from my comotosed state and make a half decent attempt to dress myself, head outside and finally get some material to start blogging. I have been putting this off for one reason or another for the past year now but with a little encouragement I decided to finally make the leap! I must say we had a few weird glances from people passing by. You would be amazed at how long people take to stop and stare but that was the whole fun of it I guess, and certainly made us both laugh. 

When I was shopping in H & M recently I stumbled across these beauties (trousers) and for a bargain price of £12.99, I pretty much ran to the checkout with the feeling that it was too good to be true. I feel that these trousers are perfect if you want to embrace the printed/optical trend which is popular for AW12, without feeling like you are a walking optical illusion. With simple accessories you can make a style statement without breaking the bank. I loved the way that the camera picked up the print in these trousers which is why I decided to start with this outfit as my first blog post.

With a little bit of hard work and determination I am hoping my blog will look a bit better than it does now....I am trying to reassure myself that people like the 'minimalistic' look....for now. Please bare with me and I promise I will have some exciting blog posts soon. I am off to watch TOWIE now after a long day interning at Karla Otto accompanied by a delicious hot chocolate before all the hard work starts again tomorrow.
