It’s my blog and I’ll rant if I want to…

Bianca Rucksack – C/O GRAFEA    Hawaiian Bomber jacket  – C/O LIQUORISH    YSL inspired ring – C/O DOLLY BOW BOW    Believe Bracelet – C/O DOLLY BOW BOW    Turquoise Bullet Necklace – C/O DOLLY BOW BOW    Disco Pants – American Apparel     Vest – H&M    Shoes – Jeffrey Campbell
This to me is the epitome of an English summer outfit, the option is there to bare some skin but we pretty much know that we aren’t going to do that right now don’t we? It’s a lil nippy out there again today SAD FACE.
I received this incredible rucksack from GRAFEA a couple of weeks ago (you’ve definitely already dribbled over it if you follow me on instagram). I thought the bag was absolutely stunning but I did wonder if I would be able to make it work for me and my style…teamed with this Garish but Oh-So-Right Hawaiian bomber jacket from LIQUORISH (one of my most eagerly awaited items this month), the blogger trademark Disco pants and some beautiful gold…I KNOW RIGHT, ME? IN GOLD???… Jewels from DOLLY BOW BOW, I’m ready to rock up to this party I’m headed to tonight with the boyfriend (I know I know, another mention of him).
I’m gonna stray from the point of this post, maybe even the entire point of this blog, a little now but I feel I have some things that I am ready to address…
I recently moved back to my home town right next to Watford after 4 Summers in Ibiza and 3 Winters at Northampton University, I never really came back to this town much. Mainly because I had no reason to…In fact I never thought I would come back, but a mind-f***ing 4 months later and here I am, Uni finished, a wee job to keep me going till graduation, the most amazing man in my life and back in the town where I grew up.
Now you may be asking yourselves why I am telling you all this but I promise you there is a point in here somewhere.
It has become apparent to me that as much as I have friends in this town (some of the best) I also have a number of people who are not too fond of me (I’d say I accumulated most of them over these past 4 months) and that they do in fact read my blog….well here comes the reason for writing this so publicly, seeing as I have never actually spoken to these people, I don’t really have an opportunity to defuse these situations as I’m certainly not going to approach them as I’m a big fat wuss and the looks-of-death which these people give me is enough to make anyone want to cower in the corner of a bar or club….or even just leave as I find myself having to do time and time again.
This is my plea, out there, in full view of the T’interweb for this to stop, (however if you have reasons other than the issues regarding these last few months then by all means crack on) but the people that are bringing themselves into matters which do not concern them, causing situations and atmospheres which make myself, my friends and people I care about extremely uncomfortable and just down right meddle, need to take a long hard look at themselves and ask them selves if really, in all honesty…they should be sitting on such a high horse? End rant.
This is my blog, it is only little old me sitting behind this cruddy laptop, this is my little place  on the web to post my loves, troubles and triumphs….This post was one of those.
Have a fabulous Jubilee weekend!

    your honesty in this post is refreshing and I can relate to what you are saying, I’m sure there are many people who can! I love every item in this look and have to get that bag…..x

      Thanks Danielle, it took a lot to actually post it so I’m glad there are people that can relate!! xx

    Well good on you darling, my personal opinion on the situation is that people hating for no reason just means one thing…jealousy! But good on you for putting it out there, continue doing what you’re doing darling because you’re beautiful, have fabulous style and a lovely blog! MWAH!

    whatever has happened I’m pleased to see that you are making a stand and asking, politely, for it to all stop. good on you for not stooping to their level! muchas love xx

  4. Shabna 2nd June 2012 / 1:35 pm

    You look bloody amazing! You’re such an interesting character! I think people assume things of you when in actual fact you are a sweet, genuine person who happens to have an amazing sense of style and looks stunning! Hope things sort itself out Lydia! x

  5. Shushanna 2nd June 2012 / 2:19 pm

    You look beautiful! Love the rucksack! And don’t worry about those people. There’s no way you can please everyone. You seem like a great person! Keep up the good work

  6. Kirsty 2nd June 2012 / 2:22 pm

    You look amazing, so in love with that bag!! Good for you to say/write something hun, they are probably just jealous of you, some people just need to grow up stop being so pathetic. Hope it sorts itself out soon!! Keep your chin up babe, your bigger and better than them 🙂 they only wish they were you 😉 xoxo

  7. Anonymous 2nd June 2012 / 3:02 pm

    Just reading your post I felt compelled to comment, ignore the haters as after all it’s jealously that drives them. Be yourself and surround yourself with those that love you for you because the haters love to hate and that’s all they’ll ever be. LOVE xx

  8. Amy 2nd June 2012 / 4:08 pm

    You look AMAZING (and like Megan Fox!). Hope those jealous haters get a grip. Hope they grow up soon xxx

  9. Emily 2nd June 2012 / 4:17 pm

    Love this outfit! I keep seeing disco pants everywhere and I really want some, unfortunately my bank balance just won’t stretch:(!

  10. Natasha 2nd June 2012 / 4:35 pm

    You’re a beaut and it often comes down to jealousy. I had the same thing at college and I used to feel so intimidated that I’d leave a room because the people were in there. It wasn’t right. But now I’m just like FUUUUUUUUUU. There’ll always be people who want to find fault with you and dislike you for no apparent reason, but just think of all the people that do like you (chances are there’s shit loads of people in that bracket!)

    Good for you for sticking it on your blog though,

    • Natasha 2nd June 2012 / 4:36 pm

      PS – love the outfit!

  11. Steffani-Louise 2nd June 2012 / 4:55 pm

    I FUCKING LOVE YOU ;] fuck em. now lets get pissed hahah xx

  12. AmyBell 2nd June 2012 / 5:09 pm

    Aw Lydia, if they’re going to be like that then try your best not to let it bother you and just let them go on using their time gossiping if that’s really the best way they can think to spend it.

    Looking gorrrrgeous as ever


  13. Lauren 2nd June 2012 / 5:13 pm

    You look gorgeous 🙂 Hope everything gets a bit less tense for you! xo

  14. The Ditsy O 2nd June 2012 / 5:54 pm

    Eh? People being…idiots? Seriously, the only reason people often act like they’re starring in Mean Girls is ’cause they’re jealous and/or complete morons. It’s hard to not let them get to you but hey it’s your life, live it how you want and if they can’t handle that, well they can fuck off. Yeah, easier said than done but hopefully they read your post and become nice humans again. Think I had a little rant of my own here, just wanted to say you look great and seem great so don’t let people who think otherwise, bring you down.
    Like the outfit btw and sorry for the rant!

  15. Nicola 2nd June 2012 / 6:00 pm

    Your so beautiful, the disco pants look better on you than anyone i have seen, honestly!
    Can i maybe as you a personal question? What size are they? I recently got a XS and im not quite sure weather to keep them as getting the zip up is a little struggle, they fit me and ive got them up now and i feel so comfortable in them now. Its just i don’t want to pay £70 for a pair that im going to struggle with. They had no S in the shop which is my point. They fit me perfectly though so im not sure. Do you have this problem?

  16. el_martina 2nd June 2012 / 8:39 pm

    you are sooo pretty and I love your Hawaii looking jacket!

  17. Abbie 2nd June 2012 / 9:47 pm

    Hmmm they sound like they have a bout of jealously to me. You look amazing and I always love stopping by your blog to check out your styling ideas 🙂

  18. Klara 3rd June 2012 / 12:00 am

    Hi Lydia, not sure what the situation is (and its none of my business) but in my experience people often act hostile/rude/mean out of jealousy. I hope you can make it work being back at home. It definitely has its positives and negatives. On a lighter note you are the first blogger I’ve seen which I think the Disco pants look amazing on. I think it’s because you are so long and lean. This style doesn’t suit everyone but you most certainly pull them off!

  19. Georgia Holly Edwards 3rd June 2012 / 9:45 am

    crazyy i did a post on this a few days ago too! i thought being 18 it was probably just my age group that are still immature so they get like this for no reason but it seems in the blogging world its just a general thing with people. other bloggers are so supportive and hometowns not so much unfortunately. i can honestly say i know exactly how you feel but its not gonna stop us blogging if anything it pushes you further to do better to be like ‘ in yoo faceeeee’
    looking like a hottie as perrrrr.

  20. A place called Adelaide 3rd June 2012 / 12:55 pm

    Okay first of all, you are BEAUTIFUL & your outfit is sooooo nice! Secondly, people are can be so pathetic sometimes & most of the time if you were to ask them “what are you actually mad about” or “what is your specific problem with me” they don’t even know. I know it sounds so cliché but just ignore their pathetic behaviour because that is what they are PATHETIC 🙂 x

  21. Laura 3rd June 2012 / 2:09 pm

    I loveeeee this outfit, the bag is stunning! x

  22. Jannaire Faulkner 3rd June 2012 / 6:02 pm

    You look amazing & Don’t let low life’s get you down, though it is easier said than done, it really does appear that they would be insanely jealous and just projecting it in a typical school like fashion.
