Autumn Apology

12 Nov 2018


How are we already deep into November? 

Hello readers! It's been so long since I wrote a blog post...if I'm honest its been longer since I really wanted to. The last couple of posts I created just didn't really have heart to them, so without consciously knowing what I was doing I put myself on a little break - which turned into two months. If I'm honest it was well needed and finally I've started to feel inspiration coming back, as well as excitement to share outfit posts again with you all! 

Autumn is one of my favourite times of the year and whilst I haven't been sharing it on my blog I've actually been having such a good time with friends, family and finding my style. I shared a lot of it over on my social media where my styling content has been flourishing, as well as personal moments around October which is pretty much like my Christmas time. Dipping my toes into certain waters to see what people would like with my content definitely allowed me to see my niche and where I want my style to go ready for the new year! It's crazy how we're so close to the end of the year.


Over the past couple of weeks I feel like we've finally hit the part of autumn that I love. Wind blowing all the leaves from the trees, big coats and scarves! I dug out all of my warmer clothing finally and realized dang I do have a lot of jumpers. I'd say they're definitely my go to item with every outfit at this time of year and I never run out of ideas on how to style them. A jumper and jeans combo is super easy, but from time to time I do want to dress up nice but still remain toasty warm. 

Necessity jumpers are definitely black or white, high neck and striped - these go with anything and I find it the easiest to pair with  a bunch of things not necessarily for autumn. One trend I've really wanted to jump on is the leopard print craze, so when browsing on Asos I decided to indulge but pick items that can be dressed all year round. Despite loving my jumpers they go away under the bed for half of the year, so lately I've wanted to make the most of my money and go for new pieces that I can enjoy a lot longer. Is this me growing up? Adulting hard on making the most of my money.

Slip style dresses became a big thing in my wardrobe in summer, so I really wanted one that I could use in the colder months also. Leopard print is always something in fashion and there's a bunch to chose from on Asos. One thing I've been looking forward to so much about Autumn is layering up, everything looks cooler and it opens up more possibilities for my style. Black jumpers and t-shirts are an easy starting item to build up an outfit and a plain basic has helped me to integrate patterns and colours! I'm so bad at wearing 'loud' items, they just sit in the back of my wardrobe gathering dust, so to pair it with an item I love (the black jumper) definitely makes it easier for me to like what I'm wearing. 


I'm a small human so I always sinch in my outfits at the waist with a chunky belt, another way to exaggerate layering!

I bought this teddy coat last winter from Primark and it was an utter bargain. It's over sized and I love to pair it with dresses to keep me warm, giving my outfits a slight 70's feel that I've been wanting to bring to my style all year. I usually pair it with striped trousers and band t-shirts for a 'almost famous' vibe. 


I'm super excited to feel motivated again to shoot outfits because autumn is still in full force! I love the orange crisp-ness of nature as a back drop, but I do also plan to mix it up with indoor content too!

Until next time guys,

Looking at my life with more positivity

17 Sep 2018


Autumn is finally here! Over the past couple of months I've let a lot catch up with me which has taken me away from posting content here on heartshapedbones, but finally we're into my favourite season of the year and I'm itching to dive straight into the leaves and warm coats to share with you guys. 

So far this month I've been busier than usual which is a good thing! but it means I've not really hard chance to sit down and plan any of my fall content. I've been watching Halloween decor hauls, favourites and even fashion bloggers sharing their transition style for Autumn and I love it! I want to start getting on with my autumn content, so I'm finally looking at blogging with more positivity because it's my time to shine. My friends, family and anyone who follows me on social media basically knows how obsessed I am over this time of year. I love the warm tones everywhere - outside, inside with the decor. I love hot drinks, warm layers and of course Halloween (Yes I did just say the huge H world) and I'm beyond excited. This will be my first fall style post of 2018 and I'm ready to shoot and schedule more autumnal looks. 


With being busy this month I've not really had time to shoot any autumnal themed posts, but taking a little trip out with one of my favourite humans (also an awesome blogger check out her blog here) Meg, we did a spontaneous shoot in a cute woodland park that has inspired me so much for the season. The weather was light so I wore just a basic polka dot jumpsuit which I think is a great 'speaking for itself' staple item, and I managed to dig out my black faux fur winter coat out of storage! I absolutely love the turn in season when you bring your favourite coat you bought the winter before!


It felt so good to be walking around with a slight crisp chill in the air everyone wearing their coats and of course seeing lots of doggos in the park.  Being around others with a similar energy has recently really helped me get out of the uninspired rut I've fallen into. Shooting with meg always gets me really excited to write up blog posts but also reminds me just why I love blogging. I love taking myself out of the comfort zone that has become my home and meet new people, bloggers who I'd never come into contact with without this little corner of mine on the internet.

Did my mum predict my 2018 style?

3 Sep 2018


Who would of thought that something my mum bought me back in 2012 would be a big staple in my wardrobe now in 2018. Wild. 

I'm wearing two items that came into my wardrobe such a long time ago when I was in the habit of buying interesting pieces but not daring to wear them out. Well, I don't think daring is the right word because really I just never had the right occasion to wear them too. I bought this witchy leotard many years ago because it had this cross over feature on the front which I'm pretty sure can be made into a pentagram. It's so interesting and has made me feel like the bad with I deserve to feel like, but it's so low and shows alot of my chest which is an area of my body I hate. I must of had a confidence boost this year because I've been wearing it non stop! This same goes with this floral tassel kimono - who'd of thought something my mum bought for me (lets get one thing straight, I rarely used to like what my momma chose) would be the love of my life many years later! It does go to show how your style can change later down the line...but that also scares me because now I regret giving away items I never though I'd suit or wear. Is this the beginning of clothes hoarding? Possibly. 


The summer before I headed off to university I really found my sense of style that's formed into 2018, I always wore black high waist skinnies, a little crop top with lots of witchy jewellery and I had my hair cut into a cute bob! I loved that look and one thing to come out of it was this kimono, which at the type I just didn't have the confidence to style something like it. I always struggle with those 'second layers' - how to wear them casually because I don't see myself going to festivals or fancier places to step my style up a notch. It's something I never reach for to be honest, but something in me this past summer to took the challenge to bring back the kimono trend!

I always loved this one because it's quote gothic with a feminine twist - black tassel fringing all round the hems and sleeves, with a cute pink floral pattern. But how do you style this? I wanted an all black outfit underneath but it's just not in me to go for a plain vest t-shirt, so I added a more alternative piece and a floaty skirt to get those witchy feels brewing whilst the season changes over.


I never really know how to transition into autumn but for the cooler evenings I've been pairing long skirts with layers like this outfit and it's been doing the trick! If it's warm in the day it soon changes once it gets to 5pm here in the UK, so I'm definitely going to be wearing this kimono till we gravitate more towards jumper weather. I feel like I struggle so much to put together an outfit in summer but my wardrobe just flourishes when it comes to this season. I'm excited to see how alternative I can style a bunch of items, new and old here on heartshapedbones!

Introducing New Things Into Your Personal Style

30 Aug 2018


This year I've been definitely experimenting a little more with my personal style, expanding out from my go to black options and actually introducing some colour this summer. It's been weird to see myself dressed in a little colour, but I've come to terms with not sticking myself in a box when it comes to clothing and shaking any labels I might want for myself. I love alternative clothing and looking the part don't get me wrong, I'm still the black haired little elf with spooky tattoos...I just want to also feel like a cute colourful summer baby sometimes too! 

It's the last few days of summer so I almost want this post to be a little 'see ya!', sharing with you guys one of my favourite looks I put together whilst frolicking around in the heat we had for months. 


I love yellow. It's become my new obsession and definitely a trend I'm taking into fall with me. With bright colours I never really know what to pair with them and that's what makes me apprehensively running back to black clothing. Not only am I experimenting with colour but any form of sports wear clothing is different for me. I've never been one to get into sports luxe or even the popper trackies trend, but one fun thing to come from working is brands is being able to expand from your normal and try new things you might not without that opportunity!

Headlock vintage a second hand clothing boutique got in touch to style some of their pieces and I took this as the right time to get out of my comfort zone. T-shirts are an easy go to so I went for this yellow Puma t-shirt*  , super comfortable and I already had a number of ideas on how to style it for different occasions. 
I think that's the worry I have with sports wear or items more on the casual side - I never know how to style them so I just stir away and go for alternative pieces. However, looking at this Puma t-shirt* I thought I could easily dress it girly with a floral skirt, under a dress, casual with some culottes or even wear it for when I do yoga because I love t-shirt with a bit of room. To match the occasion of beautiful weather I decided to pair the t-shirt with a sunflower print skirt and go full out yellow, stepping over my fears and putting alot of colour into my outfit. 



PUMA YELLOW T-SHIRT ~ Headlock Vintage // SUNFLOWER SKIRT ~ Depop // BAG ~ Primark // SLIDER SANDALS ~ H&M  

I love sunflowers so I'm surprised I've not shared this skirt with you guys sooner - it's a little high waist skater style, but the yellow matches perfectly with the t-shirt and brought alot of detail to a simple outfit. I think one way of introducing new items into your wardrobe is pairing them with either something you're super comfortable in, or treating yourself to an out there/exciting outfit with interesting detail. If I feel washed out I'm not going to like the new item I've purchased, but feeling super confident will get me wearing it over and over. I know confidence isn't something we all have or is achieved easily, but I felt so good about myself this day of shooting this outfit that I felt so comfortable in sports wear for the first time ever. 


Until next time guys,
