Geek sheek...

Jumper from H&M, Boots from New Look
(Excuse the background, Ionly noticed after )

So finally I've got myself a pair of 'Geek sheeks' (as I call them) and if i'm honest I'm quite late on to the trend, but better late than never I guess. And my reason? Only a few can pull them off really. I mean, on Pixie Geldof and Alexa Chung, the look is too hot but on me... no comment. Who would've thought that geeks would be the style icons of 2009? Who knows, next year it could be our grandparents...

I haven't actually worn my Geek Sheeks out yet as they are what some would call 'fake', I however, call them 'customised' as I purchased them at an exclusive place named, Cineworld before watching The Final Destination 3D, then punched out the 3D lenses and just like that, it was a hot purchase. If it weren't for 'Real D' being printed on the side, they'd be wearable but you know, it's something i'll have to take up with the cinema's supplier. The real things though, can be purchased in Topshop and Newlook as well as Specsavers and with the trend still out there, why not go get some...!

Double breasted blazer from Asos, Dress from Newlook, Belt from Miss Selfridge, Denim shorts from H&M

I'm back. It's been a while due to me being caught up in the summer holidays, which was fun. Shopping was a highlight as always. Me and my cousin checked out a shopping centre in Essex which was excellent, they had a variety of all my favourite shops so I was not complaining :D. This is me rocking the monochrome look with some cute denim shorts that I purchased on my shopping trip from H&M. Tiny shorts have somehow become my staple piece, something about the comfort and effortless look that they portray has got me going. The sudden feeling to embrace my legs has come about and what better time than just before Winter? In the image above I am also rocking the last blazer that I think I'm going to buy. The trend has just taken over, and more importantly taken over my 6th form common room! It's a hot look though, so I'm not suprised, but I'm looking forward to the next big piece of outerwear winter's got to offer.

Strangely I'm looking forward to winter, putting the cold weather aside, what is going to be on trend is what intrest me most. Boots-wise, I'm excited. I think I'll need to invest in a pair of thigh high ones, and these suede tassle ankle ones that I saw the other day in River Island, they were too cute. My friend looks forward to winter because she can wear whatever she wants underneath and it can be hidden by her coat. As lazy as that is, it's true :D but then you get those days that you will go coatless and freeze, just to show off a hot outfit... or is that just me? For now though, I'm trying to enjoy whats left of summer although I don't quite remember it coming. hmm..
