28th October; Glass


Dress- Topshop Boutique
Bag- I made
Shoes- Garage
Choker- ebay 

So i am writing this post from my brand new mac book!!! Very exciting for me but probably of no interest to you guys. I went home at the weekend for my dad's 50th birthday partaaay and this is what i wore (I managed to get a few photos in-between the mayhem preparing to feed 100+ guests...). I got this dreamy silk dress with the mesh back detail in the Topshop sale, from their Boutique line (which I love, and am forever wishing I can afford) reduced from £90 to £20- quite the bargain!!! I've actually had it a couple of months and just never had a chance to wear it. It's kinda too dressy for a casual day, but also too boring for a night out? I think its the long sleeves, i can see myself getting far too hot in long sleeves and a high neck! Plus the fact its 100% silk scares me (I'm always getting drinks spilled down me). i keep saying for some reason my style has COMPLETELY flipped to monochrome and grunge- I honestly think its the change in weather. I'm such an indecisive person and i get bored too easily. But I did accessorise it with my self-made honey monster bag :) still a fave creation of mine! 

I've come to accept that most of the time photos are not going to come out well of myself, but if I faffed around trying to get perfect lighting and angles, I'd end up with nothing to post. It's difficult to get photos to post when I'm at uni, just because I don't have anyone to help with photos. Plus i seem to be busy 24/7 lately- this is me having a break since I've been sewing since 9am!

Hope everyones had a good weekend!

20th October; Junk



Top- Topshop
Skirt- Pretty Little Thing
Bag- New Look
Shoes- Garage

First off, apologies for these blurry ass photos- this was the best I could get! Usually I wouldn't bother but I just HAD to share this outfit with my fellow bloggers. I was deffo channelling Moschino vibes here (if you've seen their Mcdonalds inspired collection you'll get what I mean...oh how I dream of the Happy Meal handbag!!), and I think its safe to say there was no outfit clashing with anyone on this night! 

My life at the moment is just 100% uni work, plus trying to prepare for placement in January...exciting but scary. And stressful. Thankfully I am on top of all my work, and keeping up to date, but its still a lot to get through! I'm off home for the weekend for my poppa's 50th birthday so that will be a nice break..plus I'll finally be able to get my mac book yay!! Sorry for the little life ramble haha.

I update a lot more on instagram so follow me for more outfits! :)

10th October; Honey



Dungarees- Vintage
T-shirt- Urban Outfitters
Bag- I made
Shoes- ASOS

Yes, I am breaking a horrible fashion rule here. BLACK TIGHTS. I know they completely ruin the outfit, but its officially getting cold now. And I really wanted to wear my new dungarees that I found on ASOS Market Place for like a tenner; Bargain. I've decided I like layering, especially for the summer-autumn transition (with this British weather you never know what you're going to get)...black tights aside. These dungarees are quite weird because they're like made of linen, and I feel like a rice picker or a farmer or something. Kind of cool though. Of course I added a splash of colour with my tee and honey monster bag (still one of my favourite creations), despite the fact lately my style is slowly transitioning to the minimal/grunge look. I've realised that I actually change styles every season, unintentionally. I think it's the weather change. 

I am having a sneaky break from my work to write this, as I've had a hectic week getting through uni work. I have to do 300 designs for Monday, but I'm close to finishing them! Plus I need to crack on and sort out placement, there's so much to do!! D: Everything has just come at once, and my bedroom has just been taken over by designs and art supplies every where.

4th October; Clown


Shirt- Charity Shop
Top- H&M
Trousers- River Island
Shoes- ASOS

Soo as you can tell by my trusty white wall background, I'm back at home! And of course I took the opportunity to get some blogging done (props to my momma for being photographer). I'm only here for the weekend and then back off to Newcastle tomorrow. As much as I do enjoy uni life, I do love coming home once in a while and being around my family. 

Anyway, I feel I'm pretty "clown" like here, I've taken clashing prints to a new height (for me anyway); leopard, patchwork, and dogtooth. How perfect are these trousers though?! I've been searching for some checked trousers for ages and when I found these in store at River Island I couldn't not buy them. They were pretty pricey at £35 but I'm glad I got them! They're super comfortable as well. I don't tend to wear trousers a lot but lately I keep buying them (despite being a poor student I still find myself shopping way too much...really think i have a problem D: ), plus they're perfect for the transition in to winter where its no longer sensible to wear mini skirts and strappy tops. I picked up this silk shirt in charity shop and have worn it so much, its one of those pieces you can just throw on over a plain dress to jazz it up a bit, perfect when I have a 9am lecture and am too sleepy/lazy to make an effort haha.   

I plan to spent the rest of the afternoon wrapped in a blanket and sketching design ideas for my uni project (designing a collection for All Saints...how amazing?!), and eating some form of take away food. I've also just ordered myself a Mac book so I'm buzzing, although will have to wait till I come home again to actually open it.

28th September; Simple



Dress- Primark
Hat- River Island
Bag- Vintage
Boots- Garage

So my first ever post from uni- well, this year anyway. It's taken me a while to get back in to the swing of blogging this term, as it's just not as easy getting photos etc. Plus being constantly on the go means my OCD need for pictures to be good quality isn't happening, so iPhone will have to do for now. 

It might be too early to be wearing black tights but I cannot cope bare legged any more, so the black tights are out. Also I am so colourless here it's weird, but this was a day time outfit of my new fave dress (which I picked up in Primark for a fiver), and I thought I'd photograph it for a post. If you follow me on instagram I post pretty much every day with day/night outfits (overload of re-fresher night out outfit photos...) so I'm a lot more active on that! But all of a sudden lately I seem to have stopped my overly-colourful dressing, and am buying a lot of black and grey...I hope this is not a symbol of my life. Perhaps it's the gloomy weather just making me want to snuggle up in a thick winter coat and knitwear?

20th September; Pastel Perfect


Skirt- Topshop
Top- H&M
Shoes- Garage

This is quite possibly my dream coat! Its fur, and its pastel ahhhh love it. Literally could not contain my excitement when it arrived in the post. I decided to style it with my classic Topshop pastel skirt (which I'm pretty sure appeared on my blog like every week last winter! I've finally been reunited with it) and chunky boots. Despite my love of fur, before this I did not actually own a fur coat, mostly because they were just too expensive/I wasn't sure I dared to wear them, but I love this too much to care if its too bold! Can't wait till winter comes now so I can walk around in this coat. 

This is the last lot of photos I got before leaving home from uni so I don't know when I'll be posting again. I know I don't have a lot of readers but I really want to stay active as I just love blogging too much to give it up. It's just difficult to get photos when I'm not at home, so I'll just have to try my best! I post more regularly on instagram for follow me for updates! 

It was ironic how I wrote on this post that my internet was shocking, and then it disconnected making me lost this entire post and starting from scratch. Brilliant. Not only that but my laptop is on its last legs as well nooooo cannot live without a computer.

15th September; Dust



Top- River Island
Trousers- Topshop
Shoes- ASOS
Hat- River Island
Bag- Charity Shop
Rings- vintage/bought on holiday

So I am writing to you from my new uni room, what an organised blogger I am, having photos lined up for this week haha. Since I go on placement in January (fingers crossed someone will have me!) for the first three months of my second year at uni I've gone back in to halls. And...well, it's grim, let's just leave it at that. I moved in Saturday and I've already spent more time at my friends' cute little houses than my own flat. But anyway, this outfit is so monochrome for me, where is all the crazy colour?! Of course I jazzed it up a bit with my new fave shoes, clashing with the checked trousers but I think it works. This was just a casual shopping outfit from last week, as you can see the sun was out and no jacket was needed...now it's raining and all I can see from the grim little room is a grey sky. Wow that sounds poetic, but I'm being literal. 

I'm going to try my best to keep blogging best I can, but I won't be posting as much probably! In the mean time you can follow me here on instagram for more frequent outfit posts etc :) Has anyone else moved in to uni this weekend? How's it going?! Best of luck if you have!
