Music is something I rarely post about, but something I love, so today I am changing that and sharing my winter playlist with you all. As you can probably tell, my music taste is incredibly mixed, both in style and era, so here's a few notes on some of my current favourites

-  Adele // If I'm not listening to this playlist, I'm listening to 25. It is hands down my favourite album of the past year - every single song is beautiful. Adele is queen. (also I'm seeing her live in march ohmygosh I'm excited)
-  Bowie // It's no secret I love 70s/80s music, and Bowie is the absolute king of that era. Recently I have been listening to his music pretty much non-stop, reminding me of its utter brilliance and his sheer genius. A music mastermind sadly lost. 
-  Chart toppers // I've also got some of my chart hit favourites on this list, the most played probably being Shawn Mendes, but of course what's a playlist without a guilty bit of Biebs eh? :)
-  The new finds // I love finding great lesser known artists, so this playlist is not without a few. Harrison Storm is definitely one of my favourites recently, his voice is so peaceful, it just chills me completely out, as does Novah and I hope to find more of their music I love in the future. Definitely check these 2 out if you haven't. 
What's on your winter playlist?

90s Dungaree Dreams

||  Dungarees - ASOS        Jumper - Brandy Melville     Necklace - Accessorize  ||
||     Shoes - Converse    Rings - Miscellaneous  ||

Let's just skip over the fact I haven't posted in 2 months even though I said I would. A levels are hard. But I've got a bit more time as its half term so I'm back on it - I've really missed my little blog.

To start back I thought I'd do one of my favourites, the good old outfit post. Today's ensemble has a bit of a 90s vibe going on with dungarees and converse, which wasn't intentional but I'm quite liking it. I feel a little bit Rachel Green.

Starting with the dungarees, they are one of my newer purchases which I've had my eye on for a while. Recently I"ve been loving 1 piece garments like dresses or pinafores and so as dungarees were missing from my list, I decided to order some from ASOS to see if they suited me. I did not expect these to fit all at if I'm honest but ohmygosh do they just. Like a glove. I  also wasn't sure if I was going to like the fit, as they're a bit looser than the super skinny jeans super high waisted I usually wear, but I was surprised to find I really do and it's a nice change.

My style is quite simple so with these I chucked on my current favourite jumper, this plain khaki one from Brandy Melville aka the softest baggiest thing ever, a bit of gold jewellery from Accessorize to spice it up a bit, and my very battered white converse which may or may not be my second pair - they are well loved!

I never thought 90s fashion was for me but I do very much like subtle twist on it and I'm definitely going to see what other trends from the decade I can subtly incorporate into my style. After all, I am a 90s kid. But only just.

What do you think of dungarees & the 90s?
