I'm currently in the process of tweaking my blog layout. I've actually had the same design for probably about two years now and it really needed a good refresh. I did have big plans for a redesign and then I thought, well simple is always best. If anyone has any suggestions of navigation or anything you think I should include within the blog please let me know. I need to redo my navigation bar, do some social media buttons and then add some sidebar links to types of post categories (like my videos, outfit posts, lifestyle posts) as well as a widget that shows posts from my other blog. Depending on when you're reading this blog post you'll see whats done and not done! I might also add a photo and update the banner a little more. I just wanted something simple that enhances the content rather than being overshadowed by those bloody ugly takeovers. I know the takeover ads on my blog are vile, I probably hate them more than you guys do but unfortunately (for some reason) thats just what seems to be the trend for online advertising at the moment. Although I really REALLY cant see how it works at all because I reckon they personally annoy people more than actually encourage sales. Le Sigh. I wish I was able to fund my blog with just the regular sidebar ads, but I can't.

  6. Oh snap, I'm having a blog makeover/update at the moment too. It's actually so fun to play around with code and photoshop again, it's been a while.

    Looking forward to seeing the finished layout.

    Also that coat looks ideal, it's bloody freezing all of a sudden!

  7. Also who do you do your ads through if you don't mind me asking? I get about 7 different companies bombarding me with emails telling me to advertise with them and I don't know who's best!

  8. Cute trousers, and I love your hat! Looking forward to seeing the new design :) I think a search bar would be a great idea to add because I often find myself trying to find how someone wore a specific item that I know they have, I just can't remember when they wore it!

  9. Definitely go for a simple layout, but not 'too simple': I always say that if you're going to wear only black and white then you must make it interesting with patterns and cuts ;) same goes for layouts I think!! xx

  10. Love the leopard print trousers! A search bar and a list of tags/labels in the sidebar would be a great idea. :)

  13. Suggestion! When you click on the links to the clothes/to your other blog etc, I prefer when it opens the link in a new tab and doesn't redirect you away from the page. Just something I've thought before and thought id share!
