Rock n Roll


Jacket - Vintage
Roll Neck - Charity Shop
Denim Button Skirt - Charity Shop
Boots - Topshop (Old)
Sunglasses - Topshop
Crescent Necklace - Rogue and Wolf

I feel so rock n roll in this outfit.  It's definitely the fringed leather jacket and round sunglasses combo...

I am so glad I finally bought some round sunglasses.  I always thought they looked silly on my face shape, but I tried these on in Topshop and actually liked them.  I know I always bitch about Topshop's bad quality, but their sunglasses case game is strong... weird thing thing to say, but seriously, go check out their sunglasses cases.  They're all holographic and pretty.

JH

Denim Jacket - Levis
Jimi Hendrix Tee - eBay
Skirt- - New Look
Shoes - Primark

Bloody hell, I look moody in these photos.  Don't ask, it was probably the wind or some shiiiiiit.  Wind actually annoys me so much, and I managed to pick the windiest city in England to go to uni...

I really like this denim jacket/tee combo.  I think I bought them around the same time last year when I was going through a 'wearing things that fit me properly not ten sizes too big' phase.  Otherwise the t shirt would be a dress and the jacket big enough for two.  I need to get some more rad tees like this Hendrix one that are quite fitted as I like the way they look tucked into skirts and high waisted jeans.

It's my birthday tomorrow yayyyyy.  The big 2.1.  I wanna go shopping but I'm pretty sure I have none of my £2000 overdraft left (whoops) and I'm trying to save my work wages for the joy of unexpected and very expensive gas bills.  Look at me being all sensible... Times are hard.  Need. Next. Loan. Now.

INSTA WEEK #15


Looking back through photos from last summer makes me (1) want it to be hot (2) want to have lilac hair again (3) want it to be hot.  It's just, when it's actually hot I hate the  heat and I find it way too much effort to keep my hair colourful and not faded.  See my problem?  This summer is also the first where I have no education to return to once the sun's gone in - I definitely feel like I'm in the way too deep end.  Maybe I'll just dye my hair lilac and be done with it.

Denim Button Skirt


Faux Fur Coat - Urban Outfitters
Polo Neck - Charity Shop
Denim Button Skirt - Charity Shop
Boots - Dr Martens

Yay, it's finally warm enough to venture out with bare legs, please don't go cold again weather!  SO glad I can wear my fishnet knee highs, at long last.  I've been finding such good pieces in the charity shops recently, this denim button down skirt being one of them.  It is a little shorter at the back, meaning that if I lean over slightly too much there will be a little display in the knicker department - that's nothing that a little pair of those knicker shorts underneath can't sort out.  Cant really go wrong for £3 either!
