Reading Outfit

If you're anything like me you can't longe around in jeans. To wb honest I no longer wear jeans, they're uncomfortable. But I found a pair that work for me and I can longe in them! Technically they're not jeans as they're corduroy. I got them a few years ago from urban outfitters men's section. If I'm remembering correctly they're advertised as pyjama jeans. Weird. But for the days I'm super tired and don't want to use energy on getting dressed I can just pull these on with no issues as they're elasticated waist. They're also okay if I fall asleep in them too. So in short, this is a comfy outfit I can read in and looks like I made an effort.

Also the book I'm holding in this photo, I loved it. As well as the first one. I've got the last one to read at some point then I might review them all at once.

Spooky Reads For Spooky Season

Its October and that of course means reading some spooky books! I'm doing a reading challenge for this. I'm doing the horrorween highway by Murder They Readathon. This is the first reading challenge I've done and I'm quite excited for it. Its one book a week for the month. I've choosen;

  1. WITCH by Iain Ron Wright
  2. The Cellar by Richard Layman 
  3. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
  4. Tunnel Of Bones by Victoria Schewb
If I finish all four I'll add more to it. Possibly do their other pathway which is a dark academia one.

I tried not to buy any new books to do this but I struggled with the first promo which is around a friend group, i couldn't think of any on my TBR that was horrorish and around friends. so I bought Witch. I also bought the Cellar but I got it on the community shelf in my local tesco and the money goes to charity, I've found some good books on there. Frankenstein I've always wanted to read and this is a kick to actually get to it. I know it'll be a slow read since it was written in 1818, so I plan on audiobooking and reading at the same time. Tunnel of bones in the second in a 3 part series and I loved the first one so no doubt I'll like this one too.

You can follow me on Instagram to see how I get alone. Also for mini reviews. @helloemski

DIY Horror Jacket | Nightmare On Elm Street

DIY Horror Jacket, DIY Nightmare on Elm Street Jacket

During one of the lockdowns we had, i decided that it was a good time to revamp some of my old clothing. Even though i haven't had much chance to wear this denim jacket that i added a DIY "patch" too, thanks to the warm weather. I love how it turned out and when it comes to autumn i'll be wearing it a lot.
This jacket is already on its 3rd owner, it was my partners brothers, which he gave to my partner. He didn't wear it so i "stole" it and gave it a lil makeover. He likes nightmare on elm street too and so would also wear it. 
All i did was get a tshirt i didn't wear and cut a rectangle around the print and simply hand stitched it onto the back of the jacket. Yes my hand hurt so much after and i didn't have a sowing machine at the time, but it was worth it. A simple change but it will be worn more now. I might add more actual patches to it later, if i find some i like.

I did another jacket too, that wasn't horror film related and i'll do a post on that also.
Have you DIYed any jackets?

Outfit Ideas | Ad

New stylish solid color lace-up elastic waist off -shoulder stretch pleated dress
Black off the shoulder dress, peasant style.
Black Slip Dress with Small Dragon Print.

For these i'd style them simply with some white boots so they will stand out. A few necklaces layered, a few shorter silver ones together.
Butterflies print micro-elastic velvet sling slit night club style midi dress
Black strappy midi dress with butterfly print.  
For this butterfly one, i wouldnt add to many accsessories. The print reminds me of 90s and 00s and i'd let it stand out alone. I'd throw it on for a bbq or to run to the shops as it doesn't need much to look good. You can throw it on with some slip on shoes and walk out the door as it is.  

Currently i love finding pieces that i can throw on without much thought.


New lace spliced stretch sling sexy bodycon dress
Black slip dress, with white lace trimmings.

With this dress i'd put on a black chiffon coverup, either one that sits above the dress or a long line one for a more dramatic effect. 

I'd add on my white boots and sunglasses to match with the white trim.

For necklace i'd add my cameo brooch style one on its own so it can stand out. As i'd want the necklace and dress to be the main focal point i'd put on some simple plain dangly earrings.

Plus size 3 colors summer new fashion letters printing stretch loose dress
Black off the shoulder maxi dress.

And finally because i currently love to read in the garden, if the weather is nice and not raining. 
I'd wear this as it's comfy, easy to move around in and lounge in.
If it's sunny it keeps the sun off you while still keeping cool. If it gets too hot i'd pull it up and knot it at the side to make it shorter.

Wicked Fox - Reading In The Sun | Outfit & Mini Book Review

We all know it's currently to hot to think about what to wear.

Lately i've just been throwing on the same few tshirts and light trousers. The baggier the trousers the better.

I do prefer to wear tops that i can just knott at the side, that way i can decide how short i want the top and if it gets chilly i can just pull it down again. Though i do love crop tops and they're great for this heat!

I've been wearing this High Priestess of Witching It tee so much lately. Its lose, baggy and very soft.
No brain power for thinking of what to style it with, so i just put on my pentagram earrings and chain belt.

I was reading Wicked Fox and i loved it. If you're a fan of K-dramas then you'll probably like this too.

Set in Seoul, Gu Miyoung is a gumiho, a nine-tailed fox who must devour the energy of men in order to survive. If you know anything about korean folklore you've probably heard of a gumiho before. I remember watching a k-drama in the past with a gumiho. I think it was called my girlfriend is a gumiho.

The book kept my interest for the most part, it was pretty fast paced to start with. It did lul in the middle a bit, but it picked up again. There's a cute love story without it been over the top and too squishy. I'm not usually one for romance stories. It's well written, easy to follow and enjoyable, so much so i bought the second one when i was only half way though this one.
