Moody Monday

Moody


So, I've decided that I'm going to start little mood board posts on this blog every Monday (maybe not every, but I'll try!). I'm going to call it 'Moody Monday' because: 1.on Monday I'm pretty moody & 2. I'm bad at puns but I thought this one fitted quite well (haha!).

This past year I've developed a real love for vintage/biker/grunge style clothing. I don't mean I like to dress in black leather from head to toe, but I do like to sprinkle some of it into my outfits (just to edge it up a little). Leather jackets in particular have become a staple, I picked up the 'Clean Biker Jacket' from Topshop back in January & now every time I wear it I feel like I need a moped or motorbike to complete me (probably not the greatest idea)!

I've also been loving chunky boots! Whether they be Chelsea, Biker or Cutout - I've been feelin' the need to try on every single pair (well, maybe that's an exaggeration but I just love em'!). This pair from Boohoo.com are next on my list - that platform, eh? AMAZING!

The sun hasn't been out as much but I can still live in hope, right? So I thought I'd include these sunnies into the mix as they're just too cute! I'm loving the bridge bar - so retro, plus the round frame gives that effortless vintage (HAIM sister - esque) vibe! Love it!

I guess that's it for my first 'Moody Monday' post. I might just leave a couple of songs below for you to listen to if you're feelin' like a bit of music.

M83 - Outro // Julian Casablancas - 11th Dimension // Foals - Providence

  1. Hey! I just found your blog and am now following. I love every item here, especially those sunnies. Also, I'm pretty sure we have the same taste in music because I LOVE Ham, M83, and Foals. I am seeing Haim in concert in a couple months :)

    So yeah, I'm glad I found your blog!
