Forever 21 has been such a popular store since moving to the UK. I remember seeing pictures of it all over Tumblr before it came here and being excited to go there when it first opened.

It is great for simple pieces and jewellery but a section I have been loving lately is the Love21 Contemporary section. A lot of the items within the store are teenage girl style and casual but this line seems to take a more mature & stylish route which I love especially the colour palette. For the trendy female adult I'd say. I was having a browse online and thought I'd post some of the items that interested me, I have a gift card from my birthday so I might just be heading down there soon to pick something up.
I've linked what's still online as pieces are disappearing fast but check your local store.

What are your favourite pieces from Love21 Contemporary? Comment below!

Soccer Mom Vibes

One day I will give a full body shot in an outfit post shot on my DSLR...but today is not that day. Sorry.
I literally just shot these photos quickly on Tuesday morning after waking up extra early to do Aunty duties. When I got home I had so much energy I thought why not take some shots of my outfit. By now it's clear that I'm a simple dresser with a basic colour scale. This outfit is somewhere between soccer mom x her daughter. I'm not one to wear hats but when my hair is freshly washed in its natural state, a hat is essential. Adidas is my favourite sports brand clothing wise so I had to have an adidas cap when it came to me deciding where to buy a black cap from.

Anyway this outfit is a simple throw on casual outfit. These skinny joggers from Bershka. Yes! Whoever decided that maybe people wanted to wear tracksuit bottoms without looking like they're about to ride out on the streets. Thank you! Paired them with a basic black tee & my black waistcoat from eBay & of course my black Nike Theas (I seriously need to let them go) and that is how I run errands at 9am.

Out With The Old, Out With The New


Being a "photographer" I have this habit whereby things have to be perfect visually otherwise it bothers me. So I found myself spending a lot of time in the last month taking photos for my depop. As you can see from the above screenshots of my Depop I have quite a bit that I'm getting rid of and that's just some of the recent stuff. I love this app I've sold quite a bit so far and find it so much easier than eBay when it comes to selling.

I seem to be quite a hoarder when it comes to clothes, I don't know why, I live in black Leigh jeans, basic tops and Nike Theas. I decided now was the best time, post uni post student finance *cries a little* to get rid of a load of clothes. A lot of items are brand new or have only been worn once then never touched again. Such a shame. So now they have to go. If you don't have Depop seriously you need to download it, so many great clothes for good affordable prices as opposed to some RRP.

Follow me on Depop search 'tiaao19' as seen above. UK shipping only.
I'm also starting my new venture on there #SourcedByTee, where if I come across any great items, I buy and then resell them for more affordable prices. So keep a look out for that!

Pop That

Incase you didn't catch the drift, this post is named after French Montana's song.
No. I am not ashamed. It was the first idea that came to my head & I went with it.
I seem to be more motivated to blog since finishing uni. I'm in two minds about talking about my uni experience on here but I do feel like the biggest weight has been lifted off my shoulder and things are going to get better.
This cute white crop top is one of my most recent purchases. I saw Beauty&TheBlog post about it & she said it was on sale. Next thing I know I was on Topshops website making an order. It's a simple basic top but the popper buttons add a different style to it. It's also a ribbed material which I love more than the plain cotton material. I can pop two buttons without exposing my chest to the world, which may I add, I have decided to give Primark bras a try finally and guys, I feel like a new woman lol. Don't underestimate. I only paired it with my joni jeans because I was just trying it on initially but this is probably how I'd style it. It would look so nice with a high waisted skirt or trousers though, even a button up skirt which i keep seeing everywhere. The top is currently £6 in the sale if it's still available I'll link it above or try to find an alternative.
