It’s official – as of July 14th, I’m a university graduate! Journalism with, yes, a second class degree (2.1), but I’m honestly just glad it’s over. University was an emotional rollercoaster and it really just taught me what areas I don’t want to work in.
So, there’s that big pot of confusion I’ve got simmering these summer months! I’ve got to work out what I do want to do when I go back to England in September, so fingers crossed I don’t buckle.
Summer is in full swing and the heat is on. We’re in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) now, but going back to Lebanon tomorrow, and it’s a respectable (if slightly uncomfortable) 39°C.
Yellow is a colour I love and so easily lifts the tone of an outfit. It goes with so much and, though I only used to wear mustard shades in Autumn, I’ve managed to find pieces that are easy and comfortable to wear in the heat.
Let’s talk accessories: these bee-inspired earrings are little wonders I found in H&M in the beginning of July. I’ve scoured the H&M website for the exact ones but can’t seem to find them – as soon as I do, though, I’ll be linking them at the bottom so stay tuned!
These slippers are ones my uncle bought me during a business trip to Kenya a couple of weeks ago, and I love the metallic golden yellow tones!
I’ve been been compiling a very specific playlist for Summer ’17 and it features lots of Lana Del Rey, The Atomics, Sarah Darling, Jesse Jo Stark, and Sara Evans; all I can think is Palm Springs, California, and a soft ’90s aesthetic. And – I hope it shows – this photoshoot conveys that, in my mind.
