My Self Isolation Lookbook
Ah here we are still, quarantined, eating too much banana bread, watching too much Netflix, and the only thing that fits us all at the mo are sweatpants. GUYS I feel ya. After The S Word and Quarantine & Chill I considered what I wanted to write about, the writers block is a lil' real now. I mean how much can we talk about when we are confined to these four walls? Did you watch Tiger King? Are you learning how to bake bread? Did you win the Quiz Night?
It all is a bit unmotivational, isn't it? Don't fear tho- I have a new blog post to get your inspiration juices flowing. I hope this look book makes you feel inspired towards ya wardrobe... #stayhomedressup.
VIBES I AM LOVING
Let's start at the beginning, with research, here I lead you to glossy magazines and Pinterest. Aka mood-board heaven. #tipno1- Pinterest is going to be your new best friend. I use that bad boy for home inspiration, uni- work inspiration, positivity inspiration, life inspiration. That app is the bees knees. Below I have created some vibes I am lovin' at the moment.... And yes they are all loungewear (it is what I am wearing for the foreseeable future, and I'm not ashamed.)
HOW PRETTY IS THIS LIL VISION BOARD. *heart eyes*
Also I have shared some really cool articles below. I love reading magazines, and these online articles will fuel your fashion inspiration, or give you something to read if you are bored in the house, and in the house bored. Hunny I got ya.
BRANDS I AM LOVING
And we are gonna shop shop shop, shop til we drop' (Anyone else been watching too Much Disney+, High School Musical #throwback) But seriously, I am a sucker for a browse. Anyone else just love a good scroll? I have only bought one piece of clothing in Lockdown (from Boohoo- twas a beauty.) I am trying to be more sustainable, with the way I shop. So let us have a lil browse of some of my fav brands, new collections and what some stores are doing to keep us fashion lovers inspired. Moreover, looking at these brands can help you restyle your clothes and consider new ways to make those 'boring' grey joggers a little more exciting, or maybe a basic tee could be reinvented. #tipno2-Lockdown is a perfect time to sort your wardrobe out, see what you have, and see how creative you can be...
Also I have shared these websites blog pages below, I feel like brands should show off their blogs more often as they have really good content on there, something that can inspire you further, Sit and chill, with a glass of bubbles, and have a good read.
On Missguided's blog, 'babeZine' there are posts including Tiger King, fashion Inspo based off Villanelle from Killing Eve, sleep routine guidance and home workouts.There is some serious reading that can pass the time during lockdown.
On Silk Fred's blog, they give some serious fashion ideas and inspiration, as well as some proper quarantine help like home workouts and tips for working at home.
Pretty Little Thing's blog gives us The 411 on all things fashion, beauty and lifestyle. Giving us some inspiration on fashion guides, what influencers are wearing. I love their layout as well. Some really good stuff on there.
The Topshop blog is a place to read about everything inspiring, from the latest fashion news to styling tips and cultural tip-offs. I am a big fan and currently reading 'The 7 Most Iconic On-Screen Loungewear Moments Ever.' You could lose yourself forever on these blogs. AMAZING.
