Tips to Feel Content...

Recently, I've found myself feeling content, a lot of the time, which has been kind of wonderful - so I thought I'd share some tips for staying content with you

- Clear the Air - there's nothing worse than having unwanted, unnecessary drama keeping your mind busy. Just clear the air with people. If you're unsure of where you stand, just ask, if you owe someone an apology, say sorry, if you holding a grudge, ask if that's serving you a purpose - if it does not drop it.

- Clear Out, Tidy Up - Having less stuff you don't want, makes life nicer. Knowing where all you're belonging are and banishing the 'I can't find this stress' is also pretty life-changing.

- Remember is okay to ditch the to-do list - the likelihood is that when you die, you'll still have a to-do list (morbid, yes, but true) so expecting the list to end when you don't put a stop to it. Don't feel guilty if you ditch the to-do list - the majority of things on it probably really aren't worth the stress they're causing.

- Don't go to the thing you don't want to go to - 'Thank you for the invite, but I think I'll give it a miss" is a sentence you need to learn. There is nothing worse than feeling stressed because you're rushing around to be at a time to a thing, which you don't to want to go to and spending money you don't want to spend. Just say no if it's not for you.

- Recognise how people make you feel, adjust the amount you let them into your life depending on this - Don't hang out with someone that makes you feel sad if you don't have to - that's a lonely party no one wants to be invited to.

- Get comfortable with what you like - When I finally started admitting I like poetry I began to feel happier. Have hobbies based on what you like, and remember it's okay to talk about things, even if other people don't necessarily love them like you do.

- Remember what other people think of you is none of your business - It's a freeing thing to know you can't control what others think of you and it doesn't matter.

- Unfollow people who make you feel bad about yourself - Seriously, no matter how pretty someone insta feed is if you fill up with bitter jealousy when browsing their beautiful bikini pictures for their 10th holiday this year, just unfollow. If someone ghosted you and you feel crap about it, unfollow them. When you unfollow them, they disappear, and so do those negative emotions.

Autumn Slouchy Knit || OOTD

Another promised outfit post today. 
I've found myself opting for something a little more casual and slouchy than my usual dress. Mainly because I've realised my style isn't set in stone and it's fun to experiment with clothes, I like to see how different fabrics work together and see how layering can change a look, and how clothes can alter a silhouette.
I find Autumn is the perfect time to experiment with fashion - it's not too hot to layer things us, and garments tend to be a lot more textured.
This outfit provides the ultimate comfort. The black ASOS culottes have become a staple in my wardrobe - considering I never wore trouser until about a year ago, this is a big deal. They just go with everything and the flared legs mean they add a little shape to any outfit. Plus I like how they move, and enjoy the slightly awkward length of them. 

I'd decided to pair them with a pink fine knit jumper from ASOS. It's a little see-through so does require a vest/cami underneath. It's baggy in all the right places and cuffed on the sleeves making it the ultimate cosy, slightly over sizes piece. It's a fine knit, so can be both tucked or untucked. 

This knit does scag quite easily, but I love how it looks nonetheless. Plus who doesn't love the shade of pink? I want all the pink knitwear I can get my hands on tbh. 
Keeping with the comfy, pink and black theme I've got going on, I decided to wear it with my pink Nikes, and have some cute AF little socks poking through, because I just like how it looks - I just think socks can actually add a bit of something to an outfit, if you want them to, and I want them to. 

What do you think of this look?
