Dreamy Haze.

These images, created by artist Pakayla Biehn cropped up on the Topshop facebook page a few weeks ago.
I love the style, the dreamy, whimsical feel to these pieces, making them unique to anything else. The romantic edge adds to the appeal, along with the "intricate detailing and dream-like double exposure."
And, the interesting, amazing fact - they are actually paintings, not photography.

"There's something wistful about their composition; something fleeting that makes you want to capture them in your mind's eye. There seems to be a half remembered story behind each one."

Definitely an artist I would love to investigate further, truly amazing, with an unusual, dreamy edge.

Foolishness & Heartlessness.

-Shirt-Vintage, Shorts-RI, Bag-Vintage, Necklace-H&M, Bracelets-Gifted, Shoes-Vintage.
-Rings- Vintage, Gifted, Next.
-Nail Varnish- 'Raisin' by Elf.

Realise it's been another week, not much use at keeping up at the moment apparently; ahh well!
I shall do soon, (she keeps saying.)

Anyhoo, it's been a busy weekend, and I think I'm realising it now I'm sat at home with noting much to do, except learn the art of wallpapering. That's going to be interesting?

Friday night me and the usuals went to a gig in Leeds, a friends band was playing, along with a couple of others. Was a good night, also involving cocktails, which are always good.
I wore this outfit, and the shorts are new! I love them, and after eventually buying them online since my size sold out in my local shop, and them mistakenly sending me two pairs, and taking double the amount out of my account, it's something. I have now sent the other pair back.
But anyway.
I'm not normally one to buy from River Island, they aren't always my cup of tea; yet in the past few months I have acquired these shorts, a top and an amazing blazer. I'm sure it will crop up on here sometime soon...

Sheer Stuff.

-Sheer Maxi-Ark, Top(Underneath)-H&M, Shirt-Thrifted, Shoes-Dotty P's, Belt-Zara.

Realise I'm being pretty useless at the moment, but heyho, I shan't bore ya's with random excuses and illnesses!

I actually wore this outfit for work the other day, when it was actually somewhat sunny compared to now. Although taking a photo was pretty awkward. When the sun shone, showing the sheer-ness of the skirt better, the wind blew. Hence some funny looks etc:)

Hope everyone's good and all, I am steadily catching up on posts!
Have a few plans in the near future so hopefully some more interesting posts/outfits to come!

Slip Back Out Of Whack.

-Skirt & Top-Zara, Belt & Bag-Vintage, Shoes-Dotty P's, Jewellery-Various.
-Spotty Dress-Vintage, Hat-Someone else's..?

Currently sat with a towel clutched around my shoulders and about 2 minutes before I have to go wash the dye off my hair. Not sure how different it will look, but we shall see!?

Anyhoo, sorry I haven't been around for agers, or so it seems, but catching up with friends/tidying/shopping/writing a new CV and job hunting seemed to have whisked away any free time. Not that I'm complaining, especially now the sun's out!

Today consisted of a wander into town to pick up some birthday presents and what not, whilst on the hunt for the prefect shorts I saw a few weeks ago. Except now they no longer have them in my size.. I may take a trip somewhere else to search, they are just too nice!

My friend recently found the last two photos on a camera, taken last year at Leeds Festival. Just looking at them, and I cannot wait for this year! The Strokes!
Cannot wait to see them.
