I keep getting panicked writing this thing. I'll make a post, save it as a draft, then worry I sound silly and delete the whole thing!
It's been making it difficult to make outfit posts so I thought I'd cut the writing to a minimum and simply make a post sharing some things I draw inspiration from.

And so it only seems logical to propose a question here to anyone reading this. What do you draw inspiration from?

Long time no see!

Sorry about the absence, I've been away and then as soon as I got back I fell ill. Not in fit shape for blogging! :(

But I'm here now. With an overdue outfit post and a very image-heavy holiday post.

As for the outfit!

Dress - H&M
Scarf - Accessorize
Shoes - Primark

Ever since getting this haircut I've been wanting to wear more and more clothes that remind me of what a modern flapper might wear, and this is one such outfit. This is one of those dresses that I seem unable to go wrong with, but I don't feel I wear enough. I might start building more outfits around it in the future just because I love it so much.

Now, outfit formalities out of the way, time to get to the part of this I was looking forward to. Holiday photos!
The boyfriend and I took a trip to the Isle of Wight last week to visit his sister. It is actually the most beautiful place, and I managed to get so many photos of lovely things along with finding the perfect cheesy chips. And pub crawls are a lot easier there as well! No stringent ID checking, just asking if we were both 18 (which we are! Don't worry, no underage drinking here.) and taking our word for it. If only it was that easy where I live.
Anyway, photos:

This one was actually taken by my boyfriend's sister, and is probably my favourite photo of my boyfriend and I together that exists.

It really is the most lovely place! I want to go back someday - if not just to get some more of those chips.

Hopefully I'll be back to outfit posts soon, and I'll probably start doing some other kind of posts as well to keep this thing interesting once I'm well again. Until then, hope you've enjoyed my holiday photos!
