My winter essential; Tracksuits

My winter essential; Tracksuits

I feel like I start almost every single one of my blog posts by saying how much I used to hate the trend that I’m writing about but then how over time I learned to love it blah blah blah but that’s the reality that is my life – I feel like little me would always proclaim how much I loved fashion but I never really appreciated it as much as I do now! Getting older, reading more on fashion and having my blog has taught me so many things, the most important thing for me was learning to accept that fashion is an art and certain trends are not going to be everyone’s cup of tea but we have to look at the bigger picture and how we can make those trends fit our personal ‘style’.

Today I’m not really talking about a certain trend because tracksuits have been around for TIME, instead, I’m talking about my new found love for them and how in recent years through the ‘streetwear’ hype they have become more and more popular and no longer just something that you wear to the track or to workout but almost a must-have in your wardrobe.

Not even going to lie when I say baby Ivis was way ahead of her time when it came to fashion (with the help of my mother of course aka the woman who bought all my clothes), I had so many tracksuits that I NEVER wore because I thought that they were “chavy” and disgusting because at this point in time I was a girls girl and tracksuits were most definitely not my thing but my mother kept buying them regardless. What was going through my head? Tracksuits are warm, comfy af, effortless and not to forget stylish!

Over the last couple of months, I have been saving tracksuit after tracksuit to my wishlist getting ready for this coming season and considering how cold the UK is going to be this year I need at least 5 to help me through the winter! I’m not over exaggerating here. Here are some of my favourites;

Festival Fever and major FOMO

Festival Fever and major FOMO

leeds-stage

Festival season is almost over and in all honesty I don’t know whether to be happy or sad. I mean i’m happy because it means that i won’t have to miss out on another festival this year and see everyone’s photos on social media of them having fun because i’m one of those people who gets extreme FOMO whether I know you or not! However I’m also sad because it means that they’ll be no more amazing outfit inspiration all over my Tumblr and Instagram and in addition to this, no more festivals mean no more summer and back to school :((  But next year after I finish high school I plan on having the best summer ever and the time of my life by traveling and going to as many festivals and places as possible in the space of 3 months.

I’m literally so upset because I missed out on a chance to go to Leeds fest this Friday which if I haven’t mentioned already I am  extremely sad about because whilst my friends are out having fun i’ll be stuck at home watching Netflix. Talk about an eventful Friday night right? I thought that I might as well turn my disappointment into a blog post and give you guys an idea of what I would wear if I was going to Leeds fest for the full weekend accessories included!
