It's been a while...

Jeans: Pylo*
Jacket and Top: Waiste Vintage
Sandals: ASOS
Hat: Brixton*
Scarf: USA

Sorry for my hiatus, since being back and feeling sad about not being in LA, I just haven't felt like putting myself out there on this blog, like at all. So I'd thought I'd take another little break from it all. I'm really truing to get back into it now though as I have lots to post, it's just a struggle sometimes.

Of course I'm spending this weekend daydreaming about being at Coachella, but I'm not feeling too sad about it as I leave for LA again in 12 days. That's right we booked the flights and are coming for round two. I hope LA is ready for us again.

Even Cowgirls Get the Blues

Dress: Lovestitch*
Hat: Borrowed from Eliza
White Cowboy Boots: Crossroads trading Post

I mean, where do I even start? LA you've completely stolen my heart. It was completely unexpected how much I'd fall in love with the place, hard and fast. It felt like I completely belonged there, I know I've never felt happier in a place. I've been back for a week and I'm still in such a daze, I can't believe the month is over already. I've got some serious LA blues at the moment and I know they won't fade until I book a flight straight back there.

I've honestly never had such a crazy, insane adventure, and I'll try and share some moments with you through here. Ok so at this point in the adventure we'd missed the train at Union Station the day before (very long story) and got abandoned with all our luggage with us and no where to stay, so we had to get a Motel for a night. When in LA. We ended up getting a train and a bus the next day which took HOURS to Palm Springs, then an uber to Yucca Valley/Joshua Tree to our Air bnb where we realised we were literally in the middle of nowhere and a little lost as we didn't drive, and there was a four hour walk to the nearest shop. Yeah, we didn't think that one through. Tip: maps are very deceiving, everything looks closer than it is.

So what else to do other than take blog photos in the desert? I was saving this Lovestitch dress to do especially that. Finally being able to shoot against my dream background. Don't worry though we made friends with the Air BnB host who took us through Joshua Tree and then to the pub.

PS: Selling lots of things over on depop ready for another adventure. Come find me: sara_lou_waiste

All the Leaves Are gone...

Dress: Jake of London
Waistcoat: Waiste Vintage (now sold, sorry)
Boots: Mango
Arrow Ring: Stray Arrow*
Large Turquoise Ring: Soul Gems*

Photography: Jasmine Farram

Another lost blog post, honestly I really need to be more organised. This is one of my favourite vintage dresses by Jake of London, they don't make them like this anymore. I sold this beautiful embroidered waistcoat a few weeks ago, it was hard to part with but I just have so many of them. I mean, as you can tell by the leaves this was shot in October, how long ago that seems now though! I love how the leaves match the colours of the dress. I think this was around the time I found out I got the ASOS Insider role and I think I must have forgotten in all the excitement. 

It's secretly nice finding outfits to post on here at the moment, as I'm not going to lie I've worn the same jeans the whole weekend. This cold weather makes me want to cuddle in a ball for warmth and the last thing I want to do is to wear black tights, but it's too cold for bare legs. But I'm not too bothered about that now as it's only a week to go until LA! I can't tell you how excited I am to feel the sun on my face and get my pasty legs out haha.

Bolo Necklace: Jay Nicole*
Vintage Suit: Waiste Vintage (sadly now sold)
T-shirt: Bandit Brand*

Photography: Hannah Mae Clark

Immediately now regretting selling this two piece after looking back at these photos. I honestly didn't even realise it at the time but the suit almost looks like a cactus, making it perfect for shooting in this cactus room. It was a total coincidence I promise! I love it when things work out like that. Also it was too big for me, hence the selling, otherwise I definitely would have kept onto this, as it's not everyday you find a cactus suit! haha.

A big thank you to Jay Nicole for some of the best bolo necklaces around, they're such a staple for me at the moment and they go with everything. Definitely packing them for the desert when I head to LA. They have a ton of other amazing styles too, if a bolo isn't your thing.

In other news, there's the last vintage product for a few weeks over on Waiste Vintage tonight, and although this dream suit has already sold, there's loads more amazing vintage up for grabs at 7pm GMT.

Desert Dreaming

Hat: Brixton*
Waistcoat: Glass Onion*
With Jumper: The Fith*

Ok so, I’m getting my blogging game back on big time. Feeling a lot more motivated and determined all of a sudden.Maybe it’s the warmer weather, maybe it’s the fact for the first time ever I’ve actually got some time to blog, who knows, but something’s changed inside me. I actually shot this outfit before Christmas!! (I know) and I wasn’t sure about it, and my lack of confidence recently put me off, but I thought no, come on let’s do this, the only person I know can motivate me to do this is myself. 

I have definitely noticed with my style recently that I’ve been flirting between my normal 70s bohemian vibe and a slightly more western cowgirl vibe depending on my mood and this was definitely a western day. Fringe forever, I love the fringing at the top of these Public Desire boots, they definitely add the perfect western touch to any outfit, and the same with this incredible Brixton hat, this shape is everything a cowgirl could want.
