Flower Show

I'm currently half-asleep while trying to write this. It's a good kind of tired though; I've had an awesome, eventful weekend. On Saturday, the London Korean Festival took over the Olympia, complete with a Kpop concert where 4 groups performed! My throat is recovering from screaming for EXID, one of my favourite groups.

Then on Sunday I was out of the house pretty early to go to the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. My mum's a huge fan of gardening and loves watching anything with Monty Don. I, on the other hand, didn't inherit her green fingers and can just about manage to keep cacti alive. But I do like looking at flowers and gardens (you'll see #flowerstagram a lot in my IG captions), so I came along to the show as well. We went on the last day and it was pretty packed - I might have elbowed a few too many people by accident. But there were some impressive show gardens, beautiful flowers, and a butterfly dome filled with the little creatures fluttering about.

I haven't blogged here in over a month and the first post I come back with, I'm wearing the same jeans and shoes as the last one. So I'm not winning many points for variety but I hope I've styled everything differently enough to warrant this new outfit post. I've been wanting to wear these fishnet tights since I bought them a few months ago but between the cold weather and being in a styling rut, I hadn't gotten them out until now. I only recently realised the slit in these jeans would be perfect for showing them off, and thus this outfit was born. I went with my 'goodbye' shirt from Forever 21 for the top, only tucking in half of it because I spend too much time browsing Stylenanda and their influence is rubbing off on me.

Jean Blues

Shirt - Zara  /  Jeans - Topshop  /  Shoes - Topshop (all don't seem to be in stores anymore)
I have to admit, when all the new denim trends started to make their way into stores and onto my Instagram feed, my reaction was 'cool, but why?'. I mean finding regular jeans that fit me is such a mission; I didn't wanna think about long frayed hems or embroidery or whatever else people were pulling off and looking amazing in. Then a trip to Topshop happened and I found myself staring at these jeans on the sale rack. It was more out of intrigue than attraction that I tried them on, and even then I wasn't sure whether I liked them. But they were interesting, they were on sale, and they kind of fit. So now I own jeans with front slits and frayed hems.

I haven't been able to wear them much lately because UK weather doesn't seem to understand how spring works and I don't want my ankles getting cold when I go out, but here's what I would be wearing if it was a little bit warmer. I kept things simple with a striped navy t-shirt and my mules which seem to be becoming a regular fixture of my outfit posts.
