It's funny really, because one of my 'turning twenty' plans was to start dressing more simple and elegant, but it seems that in the last week I've been lookin' more casual than ever. I bought this lovely pair of Converse with some of my birthday money last week, as I've been in desperate need of new shoes and wanted a comfortable alternative to my favourite vintage pair. I needed something that would be able to be teamed with most pieces in my wardrobe and will last me through winter (I'm so sensible, me), and after the last week I can safely say that these are seeming to be quite the investment piece! My mum took these pictures whilst on a little walk around Battersea Park yesterday afternoon, I'm so darn useless at coping in warm weather so an ice-cream was most definitely needed! 
I just thought I'd quickly mention that I've made the shortlist for the 'Established Fashion Blog' at the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards for the second year running! I didn't at all expect to again, so it would be ever so lovely if you could vote for me here if you so fancy. Thank-you! Love, Jazmine.

  10. Converse are magical, I'm never without at least one pair of them on my shoe rack - boots for winter and the low tops for summer. Personally I think you managed to pull of Converse with aplomb and they looked elegantly casual! :-)

  17. You look beautiful and summery! Elegance can come from your poise not just the clothes you wear, I think you manage to do it in a simple grey dress and converse!

    1. thank-you! yes, i adore the navy blue shade, it makes a nice change from black, but can easily match with everything in my wardrobe! i can't wait for them to get a little worn and battered, though, i'm not too fond on things lookin' too new! xx

  40. Nobody can argue with a good pair of Converse... Though the other day my boyfriend asked me if there was an age past which it was unacceptable as we watched our friend's father strolling past in them. Maybe he's got a point, but I'm sure 20 isn't the age limit♥

  41. Wow Jazmine you look stunning! It's so weird suddenly coming across your blog like this having not seen you in so long. Hope you're well.
