OOTD: Black on Black

Black on Black - OOTD - Fashion - BLVSH

I’m one of those people who will only stop wearing black when they make a darker colour. It’s simple, sophisticated and very difficult to get wrong.

ARTIST ROOMS: Andy Warhol

ARTIST ROOMS: Andy Warhol - Culture - Art - Whitworth Art Gallery - BLVSH

The exhibition is centred around death, politics and the failure of the American Dream, the latter of which eerily parallels the recent events of the US election.

OOTD: When in Rome

When in Rome - OOTD - BLVSH

American Apparel tennis skirts are a staple in my wardrobe (I have 4!) and as much as they look great with tights and boots, I personally prefer them with long bare legs and a pair of crisp white trainers (although mine are admittedly a little dirty). I wore my black tennis skirt with a colourblock sweatshirt and my favourite Nike Air Force 1s for a simple, sports luxe inspired outfit and strong minimalist look.

To Rome With Love

To Rome With Love - Rome - Travel - BLVSH

This past week was reading week at uni and I was lucky enough to spend the latter part of my time off on a much anticipated trip to Rome with my mum. I’d wanted to go to Italy for a very long time now so was really excited to finally get there for a few days and explore the capital city.
