Moodboard and Playlist 0.2

0.2 from totalmodisch on 8tracks Radio.

Being cooped up in my room has meant that I've been frantically looking for new music to listen to. I wouldn't necessarily say I've been procrastinating, but for me music is always a welcome break in between revision. Here are my latest finds- some from scrolling through soundcloud, others have been stolen from other playlists (see Views of Now and HeyClaire).

Moodboards are quickly becoming one of my favourite ways to chill out and give myself some laptop time.  Reflective sunglasses and palm trees are on my mind (can you tell I'm trying to escape from the reality of upcoming exams?) and I'm still in love with any outfit you can pair with a pair of black trainers. I hope the sun is shining wherever you are and that you enjoy the playlist! There's a real mix of stuff in there this month -  let me know what you think. x

Topshop's Chiffon

Topshop's Chiffon is one that I'd never seen before so I couldn't resist picking it up. In the bottle it looks slightly iridescent, which is what drew me in. It's a soft, baby pink but not too pale that it's hard to wear. Topshop polishes are quickly becoming my favourite, and as usual the brush is the perfect size and three coats gives you an even, opaque finish. I did find though, that the iridescence I saw in the bottle didn't really translate but all is forgiven because the final look is a really pearly, satin effect that I really like. What do you think?
The blogging hiatus definitely went on much longer than I intended it to- my life turned into a complete mess because exams are around the corner! Outfit posts have become a near impossibility because the weather has been as temperamental as me! Revision always drives me a little crazy. Thank you for bearing with me, things will be back to normal as quickly as you can say "I hate exams!" x

Stage Dive

Shirt - New Look // Jeans - Primark // Heels - New Look // Necklace - Accessorize // Watch - Olivia Burton //

Ever since it came along I've been wondering how I could incorporate the 70s trend into my wardrobe. I was struggling. What Olivia Did pulls it off so well but I could never see myself in what she wears- I'm nowhere near brave enough. Finally, I came to the conclusion that a denim shirt was a very subtle way to start and it's become a favourite in my wardrobe. Now that double denim has been conquered, next on my list is an off the shoulder number. Suzie styled it perfectly so she's my inspiration.

The orange nails (Stage Dive by Topshop) is something new too. I never go for something so bright on my nails, but I love it with blue! I'm still a pale, nude lacquer girl at heart, but for this shade I'll make an exception. 

I hope you all had a great weekend! I'm back into the university routine and just about to hand an assignment in. How did this week go so quickly?

Ripped Jeans, Grey Shirt



Tee & Jeans - Primark // Heels - New Look // Necklaces - Topshop

I seem to have regressed from any kind of interesting outfit to one of jeans and a tee. There are, however, slight details that make these kind of outfits feel a little more exciting for me. Jeans ripped at the knee is something that I'm so late to, but in love with. I really don't know why a little extra space around my knees is so exciting but now I'm asking myself why all of my jeans aren't a little ripped. 

My Easter break is nearly over -  just one week until I go back to university and I have so many outfits to shoot before I leave! The past week we've been watching movie after movie and I have a new-found favourite. We watched 'Love, Rosie' a few days ago and I desperately want to watch it again already! The fact that I cried multiple times throughout puts it up there in the ranks as a good movie. If it can make me cry (due to laughter or otherwise) it's a winner. If you haven't watched it, go over to YouTube and search for the trailer! There are some great throwback songs in there too, because I think the story line spans over around fifteen years. 

Right now I'm sat with soaking wet hair so I should probably sort that out. We're going out for dinner in just under two hours and I'm being very ambitious in wanting to dry my hair, slap some makeup on and leave with freshly painted nails (that are dry) so I don't have to walk around with fingers splayed out to stop any smudging. I don't have nearly enough time but I'll do my best! Talk to you soon x
