Keep It Simple Stupid

So in contrast to my last blog post about uh, hot chocolate, I thought I’d actually step in to the joys of summer and show you how I kick it sometimes – simple and stylish, like a proper good egg. Like most things in life I have stuck to the old classic K.I.S.S rule… ”KEEP IT SIMPLE, STUPID!” which is a damn good rule to apply to most area’s of your life. From design to dressing yourself – keep it simple and you can’t go wrong! 

The other day I tweeted a really good voucher code I found on the 10 ways to have more money as a student, without working Facebook page for Matalanwhich was £10 off with no minimum spend. I would have been a damn fool not to take up the offer myself, so splashed out an entire £2 on this plain khaki colour jersey skater dress (the voucher code finished later the same day, but the RRP is £12 on this, which is still cheap! and you can still find them in store in loads of colours!). I love the length of this as it’s perfect for warmer days and getting your milk bottles, uhm I mean legs out. To add a bit of pizazz to my razz I jazzed it up with a bug necklace I got from the H&M sale ages ago for £2, a belt from unknown sources, and my trusty Converse which I’d had for years now! Initially I did pull my face at spending like £40 on a pair of Converse, but considering they’re probably in their 5th year of being in my life, and still have no visible signs of ware on the soles, I think it turns out they were a pretty good investment!
