SHINING STAR


Hello all, I thought I would share with you a quick (kind of) outfit post, bringing my fashion blogging to a grand total of...two. I clearly hate taking full-length photographs of my body so a fashion post is rather rare! I dip in and out pretty frequently when it comes to style. If I like something I'll buy it, wear it to death, complain I don't have anything to wear and go on another splurge, thus completing the vicious cycle. 

I've followed Julie Sariñana on Instagram for the longest time. You may know her by her username sincerelyjules or as that crazy-stylish lady who keeps popping up on your Pinterest feeds and fashion boards. I seriously love her style (and her seemingly perfect globetrotting lifestyle) and have been lusting after several items in her online shop for too long. So, armed with my trusty credit card and no self-control, I popped a couple of bits into my basket and bit the bullet on those horrid shipping costs from America.

I fell in love with this simple classic white t-shirt with the gorgeously written "étoile brillante" print. On her website it translates as "shining star" but I've also seen it translated as "bright star" in a few other places - whatever its literal meaning it's rather cute and I couldn't resist it. I'm a sucker for slogan tees. I love how wearable they are, and how they serve as a good base to any outfit.

It's worth a mention that as well as the t-shirt, I also bought the off-duty sweatshirt, which I've been wearing pretty much my entire weekends off. It's a little bit short (so if you're tall be prepared to get cropped) but it's so comfortable, stylish, and makes me feel weirdly American? I think it might be the classic lettering!

I've been loving this really cute black bomber jacket from ASOS too. I think I must wear it with practically every outfit I put together at the moment, but it's great at this time of year because it's not too thick. I know that I can just throw it on to walk the dog and it'll look good while keeping the September chills at bay. I would say it's like a hoodie without the hood. The cotton material is so comfortable (and practical to wash) and the pockets are really handy, especially if I'm lazy on my lower half and just wearing black leggings - yes, I'm one of those girls, don't judge.

So yeah, a really quick half-an-outfit-post for you today! I really recommend checking out the Sincerely Jules Shop as it offers some really lovely stuff that I've found to be great quality and just what I'm looking for in the moment. I have so many bits on my future wish list so come payday I may have to have another little splurge. I'll just have to apologise to my credit card in advance this time!
