The Cheapest Wardrobe Update Ever

I don’t know why but I instantly fell for these tights and it’s so bizarre because normally I wouldn’t go for something like this at all. My go-to is a 60 denier black tight because it’s classic, covers my pale legs and goes with everything. I’ve just been a bit bored with my wardrobe recently and I’ve been looking for pieces that are more interesting and exciting to wear. It got me thinking about cheap and simple wardrobe updates and I feel like patterned tights are maybe just that. These polka dot ones are still pretty wearable, they are black after all and I like that they are quiet cutesy and playful. I paired them with a really basic outfit but I think that’s what makes this look so wearable and easy to recreate.

Style Rarebit 2017

Well hello there. Here I am! First outfit post of 2017 and the first of many more to come. For me this year marks a big change, I’ve spent far too long thinking about how I want my life to be. This is the year where I just have to go and get it, stop thinking and start doing.

Like a lot of people my age, I felt the slump after finishing university so frustrating. You’re no longer being creative on a daily basis and the reality of having to work jobs you hate sets in. Equally I know that a normal 9 to 5 is not for me and even though I’m not sure exactly where I want to go, I know that this blog is my favourite hobby. I’m going to try this year to make this more of a priority and really start pushing it as a medium to be more creative and broaden my horizons (I bloody hate that expression but you know what I mean). I think surrounding myself with people who want the same as me will only help to push us all in the right direction.

I love my blog and I love the opportunities, people and knowledge that it’s brought to me so far. I’m starting to branch out a little bit too with YouTube and doing more projects with brands, which is an amazing learning curve. I am more excited, positive and motivated for StyleRarebit than ever before and I hope you are too. Here’s to more stripy trousers and me rambling on video, whoop whoop!

Hello Winter

stylerarebit.com It’s here! Toffee nut lattes, frost outside and a mere 7 weeks till Christmas, how could you not love winter? I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone also and how long it’s been since I last did an outfit post! I’ve picked up a few nice pieces recently like this coat in the M&S sale, the grey Topshop tee and this beautiful vintage bag from Penny Lane Vintage. Winter dressing is my favourite and I can’t wait to set my credit card on fire with a few warmer pieces, especially some chunky knit jumpers and coats.

& Other Stories

I’m so in love! Aren’t these just the cutest shoes ever? Oh how I wish shoe shopping was a job. I needed something simple for everyday and feel these tick a lot of boxes. Black suede is my weakness and I liked that these are quite transitional, not winter but not quite summer either.

s1I love browsing stories.com and often make little wish lists, but these just pulled on my heartstrings and I had to buy them. Incase you didn’t know, & Other Stories is part of the H&M group with a really paired back, minimal, european feel to the products. I love everything on their site, there’s a lot of essentially on trend basics which I see as true investment pieces. They are clothes you can wear everyday and are great quality.
