Hi, I'm Laura

I’m currently based in Cambridgeshire and work in fashion as a content creator. I began this blog back in 2013 as a way to expand on my love of fashion writing. At the time I was feeling pretty self-conscious so creating this platform not only allowed me to share my passion but also boost my confidence. These days you'll most likely find me in my natural habitat of wearing a massive sports jersey, binging netflix and scrolling through holidays sites.

STYLING: JEANS AND A SLOUCHY TEE

Jeans and a slouchy tee has to be one of the simplest outfits going but also one of my favourites. I know that this sort of look from me is surprising, but I have to be honest and say 70% of the time this is what you will catch me in. I love quirky trends as much as the next person, but comfort is always key!

I’ll let you into a secret, this Calvin Klein tee is actually from the men’s section, but like I said comfort is key. Slogan tees are my favourite for off-duty styling. They’re so easy and effortlessly cool. This Calvin tee was literally made to create a jeans and a slouchy tee look.

I actually picked up this tee in white as well because I loved it so much. Calvin Klein also does a black version of this tee. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t tempted to get the other colour but for now two of these tees are enough.

A slouchy fitting t-shirt is one of the most versatile pieces you can buy because surprisingly can be styled in quite a few ways. I am personally quite a fan of a tie to the front. I sized up and got a medium so it would look a little more relaxed as this will make everything appear more effortless.

Tucking everything in really helps to cinch in your middle.

I’m partial to a tuck at the best of times, especially when the top is oversized. As I have some curves, I always try to highlight my waistline. Tucking everything in really helps to cinch in your middle. Another little tip to feminise this men’s tee is rolling the cuffs. It’s a small trick that turns shapeless short sleeves into cap sleeves that fit a little better.

Normally I like to stick to black jeans, my classic go-to. Since this tee is navy and I didn’t fancy that clashing fashion faux-pas, light wash just had to do. Even though blue jeans are a favourite of mine, I do like this tonal vibe between the denim and the tee (even though my black belt did stick out a bit). 

I simply accessorised this look with one of my trusty biker jackets from Forever 21. The white tone of the jacket went so well with the slogan on the tee. Normally, I would wear this without the jacket but with it being winter, beggars can’t be choosers.  I picked up this jacket the year before in Vegas and it made a huge impact on my wardrobe ever since.

In keeping with the white theme, I slipped on a pair of matching ankle boots. If I’m running errands, I would normally just put on a pair of trainers with this look but for meeting up with the girls or a day out these boots are the better option.
