When asked what I study (fashion design and textiles for those non-regular readers! Why you no come here more though!?) I am more than often met with the response of "Well that must be fun" or "sounds exciting", and even the odd "how do you study fashion", and it is, fun and exciting, but also extremely demanding. More so than I ever could have anticipated. So, whilst I dream of traipsing into uni dressed like an eager fashion week goer and impressing my fellow fashion bitches, who like you and I, appreciate a well thought out look, I've got to be honest here, it simply doesn't work out that way. Lazy dressing has become somewhat of a thing for me since commencing my final year, namely because I lack three of the key elements required for such circumstances; time, energy and commitment. So accept my apologies in advance fam, I'll be basic bitch'n it for the foreseeable future. 

But hey, it wasn't a total loss. I made an effort with the bandana . . . it took a rough 30/40 seconds to tie! Things can only get better s'pose.

Like every new year before, I saw this one roll in with a barrage of new year, new me promises. And whilst I'm not one to partake in such nonsense *(note disdain due to my lack of success with previous attempts) I was intrigued when the lovely people at BOOHOO asked if I'd like to take part in their new year fashion resolution campaign.


If you're anything like the Laura of new year's past, then you will be well into the breaking of your resolutions . . . it's OK fam, step into the circle of trust and let it all out, ain't no judgement here, for I am the queen of breaking resolutions and I feel you! It's just too bloody hard to stick to sometimes. 

But, put a fashion spin on that challenge and I'm all ears. So, for my new year's fashion resolution,

I will wear . . . more staple pieces.


Let's be honest here, we've all made the mistake of  feeding into those ridiculous, short lived trends for which we find ourselves looking back, totally perplexed at our fashion choices (silver leggings anyone??). This not only puts a dent in our ego but our bank balance too. So this year I resolve to purchase only items that have longevity, that will serve as a staple in my wardrobe. And the first port of call was this gorgeous biker jacket, that will not only suit many an outfit, but many a season too.
