OOTD : The Tartan Skirt


Tartan Skirt - New Look
Vintage Shirt - ASOS Market Place
Backpack - Primark (Old)
Shoes - Primark

Feeling like I should be trotting off to sixth form in Monday's outfit.  Nope.  Just the first day back of third year.  The final year...  The thought of leaving uni forever next July, is not appealing in the slightest.  I cannot imagine myself venturing out into the big wide world, getting a 'proper job'.  Do I even want a 'proper job'?  Do I want to 'grow up'?  Nooooooooooo.  God, I still feel like I'm 17 or something, and that ain't good.  I wish I was 17.  17 was a good age.

Enough dwelling over the future, and on to the outfit - I'm not usually a massive fan of New Look, but how perfect is this tartan skirt going to be for the Autumn!  I'm just picturing wrapping my legs up in some woolly tights, and throwing on the chunky boots I may or may not have accidentally ordered from River Island on Sunday...  But for the moment, while we are all savouring the last of the warm summer sun, I of course, stuck with my forever pale bare legs, and my fave rediscovered lost gem - the snake print shirt.  I love a bit of print clash at the mo.

Day 2 Day


 Tee - Urban Outfitters (Old)
Jeans - Boohoo (Old)
Boots - Dr Martens
Bowler Hat - H&M
Backpack - Primark

Thought I'd show y'all the kind thing I wear on a lazy/day to day basis.  A tee-jeans combo is pretty much the go to on one of those lazy, 'I can't be bothered to decide what to wear today' days.  Potentially, it could be a boring outfit... Potentially.  It's soo easy to quirk the whole thing up with an oversized tee, some ripped, or acid wash, or in my case both, jeans, and a hat of some sort.

Back To School | Collab With Little Emily Jane

 We all know what September means - the return of school.  Can't say I miss dragging my tired arse out of bed at 6am every morning, but I did have fun putting outfits together for sixth form.  No more uniform.  Yay.  I'm sure you have all been bombarded with 'Back To School' outfit posts, so Emily Jane (over at Little Emily Jane) and I thought screw it, we'll jump on the bandwagon and add to the bombardment.  Why not?


Blanket Cape (Scarf) - Primark
Top - H&M (Old)
Disco Pants - H&M (Old)
Chunky Shoes - Primark

Going in the Autumn direction with this outfit, armed with greys/black and a trusty blanket cape.  Okay, you got me - it's suppose to be scarf, but there's no rules here.  As soon  as I spotted it, I knew I would be wearing it as a blanket cape.  What a soft and cosy £6 bargain that was.

I haven't bought shoes from Primark in years.  I think the last time was buying £3 shoes for school that, without fail, fell apart after 7 wears.  I don''t think these chunky babies are going to be falling apart anytime soon, although they have given me a blister right on the sole of my foot.  Thanks for that one, Primark.


Top - F&F at Tesco
Trousers/Shoes - Topshop
Necklace - Tiffany

Loving the monochrome and chunky shoes in this outfit post, although Emily Jane has opted for a little splash of colour with a pastel pink top - perfect for this AW.

OOTD & UPDATE

Back from Bestival means back to the real world, with a serious case of the Bestival blues.  Yes, my mood has been right down looowwww, and I now spend my hours daydreaming of the hammock filled forest and dancing all night long at The Port.  Reading was the only festival I had ever ventured off to, but Bestival... I can't even begin to type out how much better it is.  Unpopular opinion?  Go to Bestival.  You'll understand.


But back to the real world, also means back to blogging.  After a little two week break, I've got an outfit to show y'all.


Shirt - Vintage
Triangle Bralet - H&M
Jeans - River Island
Slip On's - Topshop
Backpack - Primark

Anyone remember ASOS Marketplace?  I know it's still a thing, but anyone remember ASOS Marketplace before they changed it so only boutiques could sell?  When your average person like me and you could buy and sell all of our once loved pieces?  Yeah, I preferred it back then as well.  I managed the snap up this vintage silk shirt, for a bargain no doubt.  I love the chunks of snake print running down.  I also love tying shirts up at the moment.  I don't know what it is, I think it's because I love being able to wear pieces in lots of different ways, and tying a shirt rather than wearing it loose gives a different feel to an outfit.
