STYLING GYMWEAR FOR EVERYDAY // FASHION

I've been struggling to identify with a few fashion trends lately, and I've recently found myself in a bit of a style 'rut' and I ended up just gravitating towards outfit combinations which I barely had to think about, so I could be out the door in a hurry and be comfy all day. Most of my outfit combinations seemed to lean more towards mixing up gym wear and casual clothes, as my style has altered drastically over the last few months and i've been opting for more 90s influence in my wardrobe, which I am currently loving! Theres no other combo I am loving more right now than the sports bra teamed with midi skirt and a bomber jacket, along with either trainers or boots to fit the occasion. I've seen so many amazing A/W 16 midi skirts, bombers and womens gym wear  that I thought I would share the golden pick on here in a sort of sketchy/mood board way:

4 5 6
7 8 9

I've definitely had more fun recently with my style as i decided that I was being so hard on myself with pressurising myself to stick within certain 'boundaries' which I had sort of set myself on this blog. I just came to realise personal style is all about experimenting, mixing and matching, with the gym and casual wear mix being my current go to combo. Some of the womens gym wear featured on the list is from the brand MANIÈRE DE VOIR, whose current active range I am completely lusting over due to the gorgeous colour blocking and simplicity of the pieces.

VEGAN GROVERY HAUL // LIFE



Hey Guys, I filmed a vegan grocery haul this week which I uploaded onto my YouTube channel. These kinds of videos helped me massively when I was transitioning into a vegan diet as I had no idea what a typical shop was and what foods I could buy! Obviously there's foods in this video which I didn't buy that I already had such as rice/coffee/tea etc. but hopefully it helps if some of you are considering a vegan diet!

Love,

Rachel

FLAMENCO FEELINGS // OOTD


Happy Monday and here we go starting another week. On the plus side, next week is only a four day working week! I'm super excited for the upcoming bank holiday and I'll be visiting my very first vegan fair in Manchester on Saturday. Has anyone ever been to one before?

I have been wanting a skirt in this style ever since Victoria Beckham brought out an absolutely stunning blue skirt in this style and I was over the moon when I saw something similar on asos. Wearing it gives me flamenco dancer style vibes and I literally can't stop spinning round in circles like I did as a kid at school. With this skirt I wanted to pair it with something simple and this knitted top from zara felt perfect for me. Walking past this top in Zara the other day, I picked it up and the thought actually came across my mind that i haven't actually seen a top like this before (or own something similar which is a shock). I love the neckline which is kind of cross-over/halterneck but its not? Also not being the hugest fan of patterns, this top has just the right amount of stripes for my daily pattern needs without it being too over baring.

THE GREY CO ORD // OOTD


Today I went for the ultimate comfortable ensemble with this co ord. The material is incredibly soft and I have left on comfort level 10000 all day long. I am also loving the diagonal line of the top, adding an interesting shape to the whole co ord. Wearing this today whilst running an extensive list of errands was a complete godsend, as paired with these AMAZING skechers, I could run round all day and feel at utter comfort. I feel as though I could lounge round allllll day in these and eat mounds of bread and pasta and still feel comfortable, unlike jeans which I try to avoid wearing at all costs and even when I do, as soon as I'm home they are straight off.

I'm currently home having some well needed chill out time and break from work. I am also contemplating filming a vegan grocery haul this week and popping it up on my very neglected YouTube channel. Thoughts?

Love,

Rachel x
