Metallica


 Jacket - Vintage eBay
Tee - Urban Outfitters
Jeans - Boohoo (Old)
Chunky Boots - eBay
Choker - eBay

I have been soo crap at posting since I made my return from Bestival.  Naughty blogger.  Coming back to uni has got my blogging routine all muddled up - I say that as if I've delved straight into third year, like the hard little psychology student I am.  Ha.  Hahahaha.  Just lazy - apparently uni drags out the lazy girl in me (she's lazy, she needs dragging, alright?).  Decided to re-evaluate my life today... things are go'orn change around here.  Posts are gonna be popping up on your bloglovin/blogger feeds 2 to 3 times a week from now on.  And I'm going to be a good student - dissertation, here I come.  Anyone else get random spurts of motivation, that just like, come from nowhere?

On to something a tad more relevant.  A Metallica tee has been something that I have wanted for bloody ages.  Basically, Urban Outfitters: aged 16 - shopping with my mum.  Sighted a black, completely cut up, Metallica cropped tee.  Loved it. Wanted it.  Price: £32.  Couldn't have it.  My mum was right, it was stupidly overpriced, like most of the shiz in UO's.  Not that that stops me from wasting my money in there..  Ever since, I have been on the hunt for the perfect one.  The one I am wearing above was in the UO's sale (I believe it was £30 down to £20), but I got it for £18, with good ol' student discount.  Score.

I've also taken to wearing just a single choker, rather than piling on loads of different necklaces.  I don't know, I'm just liking the simple look of it, at the moment.

  2. ahh I almost bought a jacket like yours in white. but my brother said he hates it. I kinda regret not buying it haha :D def in need of a new leather jacket. And the shirt is freaking cool too, the used look is just too good as it´s too much effort to make it look worn out by yourself :D

  6. You always look so effortless, I love the fringing on your jacket so much :)
    I hardly never go into Urban Outfitters to be honest. Although I love the stuff the prices just make me want to cry! Haha

  7. Gorgeous outfit babe! I remember finding a Metallica tee in UO's once and buying it at such a ridiculous price and then I hardly wore it! I ended up donating it to the charity shop and feeling really good about it until I saw this outfit post and now I'm mourning it's loss :p xo

  10. Tell me about it! It's so hard balancing third year with blogging! My biggest issue is that I have no one to take my outfit photos. I live with two guys both of which I refuse to ask cause they'll just moan haha. So I have no idea what to do :/ anyone, great bargain! Sometimes it pays to wait :)

    Happy Autumn!

  11. I'm currently sticking to wearing just one choker, too! It gets tiring to wear a lot of them everyday. Whenever I'm tired, I feel like they're ... choking me. Seriously. Chokers that chokes. LOL I'm blabbing, sorry.

  14. I also get random spurts of motivation don't you worry haha! It's the rest of the time I worry about!

    Love that tee, I had the original one a few years ago but cut it up and over-tailored it. Argh. Also, I like the look of the one choker, agreed sometimes I love my necklaces super layered but other times it's nice to go simple xx

  24. I was the exact same 16 year old - and then I discovered charity shops and my life changed haha. Really lovely outfit though, I always go weak for UO. I've recently been bitten by the motivation bug too and have been to the gym every day this week which is mad. I just wish I had the same motivation when it came to reading book after book after book - Yay for being a lit student :/

  27. That jacket is A-mazing! Just had to follow as somewhere inside of me is a girl that wants you style but sadly I've never been able to look as cool as you. So looking through your blog will have to do.
