Guitar Browsing OOTD

Jeans: Topshop, Top: Vintage, Jacket: River Island, Boots: New look, Sunglasses: New look, Necklace: Topshop

 As the boredom phase of the summer holidays commences, you begin to find yourself taking every oppourtunity that you can find to get out of the house.  For this reason I decided to go with my Dad to the proffesional music technology shop to buy a new amp lead, thrilling times.

However the range of guitars was amazing, I started teaching myself to play the electric guitar in March and whilst I am pleased with my progress, I was way too intimidated to have a go on any of the models in the shop, especially as the resident metal-heads were performing hardcore rock solos the entire time.

I wore my Topshop coated jeans with this Harley Davidson tank top I bought off Depop. It will be a remarkable day when I decide to forgo some sort of leather jacket, on this occasion I went with my cropped River Island one. To switch it up a bit I decided to accessorize with a gold collar necklace to match the metal trims on these new look ankle boots.

Hope you're finding fun ways to pass the summer!

OOTD: Extra Terrestrial Arctic Monkeys

Overdressed as always, I headed out for a trip to Llandudno pier with my family. Assuming it was going to be breezy by the sea, I opted for this white biker coat from Primark with my blue Topshop Jamie jeans as they are the softest pair I own, making them perfect for long and uncomfortable car journeys. 
I chose my Topshop ankle boots as they are sturdy enough for walking around in and relatively comfortable too. 

Being pretty much obsessed with the Arctic Monkeys I decided to wear my band tee as I have rediscovered them since learning to play the guitar. I layered my ID collar and my Zara necklace to create a large statement piece because I am really into wearing an overload of jewellery at the moment!

My accessories are probably my favourite part of this look and this E.T clutch has a starring role, despite being described as 'hideous' by my mother. I got this from H&M for £2 the other day so it was definitely a bargain and I can't seem to put it down...

I bought the skull biker ring from a shop on the pier along with a couple of others and I love the way it looks with my Casio watch and arm dermals. A red lip always seems to be my go to makeup look when I wear my hair in a topknot and so I blew the dust off my MAC Marylin Monroe collection lipstick in 'Charmed I'm sure.'

 I hope your all having a great summer!
