Varsity Jacket


Varsity Jacket - Boyf's
Cropped Top - Topshop
Cut Off Mom Jeans - Topshop (Old)
Boots - Dr Martens
Socks - Primark
Choker - eBay

Forever stealing Lewis' clothes, and I can't say he is too impressed that I keep featuring them in outfit posts... He should be flattered, don't ya think?

I know I always, always say it, but boys clothes are just a million times better than girls clothes.  Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a thing for anything remotely oversized.  It may be the comfiness,but I always thought that there's something about dress-sized tee's and jumpers big enough for two, that look kinda feminine...  I love the slouchy look anyways, and the oversized jacket/mom jeans combo deffo achieves that.

Did I also mention how warm this jacket is?  Can't say Lewis will be seeing much of it this winter...

Stolen Tee


Jaguars Tee - Lee
Faux Fur Coat - Urban Outfitters (Old)
Chunky Shoes - Primark
Frilly Socks - Topshop

Can't say I'm a Jaguars fan, but this tee though... I swoon so much whenever I see it hanging up in the boyfriends wardrobe.  It's got that whole vintage thing going on, how could I not?  Boy's t-shirts also make excellent dresses.  Yet more reasons to shop in the men's section.  Or steal your boyfriends clothes.  Whichever works for ya.

Eagles


Eagle Jumper - Vintage
Floral Leggings - Zara (Old)
Chunky Boots - eBay
Necklace - Primark (Old)
Tattoo Choker - eBay

I'm not entirely sure on whether I picked this eagle jumper up from a charity shop, or if I hunted it down on my fave website 4 lyf, eBay.  It's one of those pieces that a cutesy vintage shop could get away with selling for 20 to 30 quid, but on the other hand, there's always something like it lurking in a charity shop for a measly fiver.

Today was most deffos a comfy day; 9am lecture followed by the joy of three hours of being a good little Psychol student in the library.  Casual leggings and jumper it was.  A jumper lined with fleece, may I add. Gotta love a bit of fleece to keep you warm on a chilly Autumn day.  Spiced it up with a collar under the jumper.  I've been doing that a lot again recently.  It gives an outfit that is missing something, a teeny bit more depth.

Hello, Autumn



Bowler Hat - H&M
Jumper - H&M
Boots - Dr Martens
Choker/Necklace - eBay
Backpack - Primark

Autumn-ing it up today in a jumper and doc docs.  I've decided that this jumper is going to be the first step in turning my wardrobe a little less black like my soul, and little more colourful.  I'm such a cliche; trying to turn my wardrobe into a more colour-filled place, not like everyone else has been doing that...  Although, I do have a feeling mustard yellow is the most colourful it's going to get, let's not go wild here.

What a barg this jumper was though - £14.99.  Oh H&M, you know how to please me, don't you.  Massive knit, way oversized (which may have had something to do with the fact that I bought it in the biggest size they stocked, but who am I to pass up the chance of a jumper big enough for me x2), couldn't not buy it, really.

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.
