pieces of a weekend + more style advice

  I so often find myself enjoying the more lifestyle oriented posts of my favourite bloggers, in which they show photos of their weekends at cool cafes, with friends, working on projects, etc.  I wish I could say that my weekends were that exciting, but in all honesty, they usually just consist of a whole lot of math homework, dance classes, sleeping, comfort food, and more homework.  I decided to give it a whirl though - and show you some fragments of my Sunday morning, which I spent watching the Burberry Prorsum A/W14 Womenswear show (those monogrammed ponchoes make my heart skip a beat), scrolling through instagram, and reading Lord of the Flies (kind of slow at the moment, but I'm holding on for now).  All that, and procrastinating my math homework.

Additionally, I also took more Style Advice Sunday questions! Here they are:

hi, one question... how would you style a velvet dark blue dress? is for a semi formal birthday. Thanks anyway, I love your blog.

MY ANSWER:  Thanks lovely! x That sounds really pretty! Bear in mind that a lot of ways to style it depend on the fit and shape of the dress, but here are some ideas:
-If you want to make it classic: Pearl earrings and hair up in a medium/low messy bun, with maybe a small clutch bag and simple black pumps
-If you want to make it edgy: Go for chunky shoes like these and poker straight hair - it’s been all the rage on the SS14 and AW14 runways.
hope you like these ideas! x

What type of sandals should I get for spring and summer?  If I want to be on trend that is?

MY ANSWER:  Chunky flatforms have been in for a while and I freaking love them.  Also slightly more casual are the poolside slip-ons that everyone has been getting from ASOS. x

Hi, I love your blog and I think you have the best sense of style ever :) but I was wondering how you would style doc martens? and what kind of shoes should I get this spring? xo

MY ANSWER:  Ah thank you love! I love yours too xo.  I don’t have Doc Martens myself, but they are really nice.  They pretty much seem to go with almost everything - just maybe not with more minimalism or classic styles, obviously.  Here are some ideas:
-knee socks and smock dresses
-giant t-shirts with cardigans and tights
-mom/boyfriend jeans and crop tops
As for SS14 footwear, I’m looking forward to wearing lots of chunky flatform sandals, but Converse and running shoes seem to be still going strong, as well as mules, strappy heels, and lace-up heels.


I also wrote up this weeks posts, which include two outfits, and more.  How did you spend your weekend?
