jacket – all saints

Look at me, as soon as I come up with one pun I completely overuse it to the point that everyone’s like OK, WE GET IT NOW, ALRIGHT. I have a heart clip in my hair and so love is in the hair haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Continuing the love, New Look have the recipe to a perfecto date night outfit online at the moment, including this burgundy bell sleeve top, something I should’ve owned my whole life; with the cute cross-back it’s the little details that makes it a tiny bit more special. Some cropped flare trousers have been on my wish list for a while, although not so cropped on me thanks to my midget legs, I can’t wait for summer to be floating around wearing these beauties everyday with some sandals.

I don’t know what date I’m going on but New Look have all you need for Valentine’s Day, no matter what your plans are! Ahem I heard Subway are doing free subs if you buy a large drink sooooooo I’ll see you at the sandwich counter baby.

One day (when it’s warmer and when I’m not in the library literally every day of my life) I’ll have normal outfit pictures back, but hey praise the lord for a very rare outfit post! Have a lovely weekend! I’m going to work now!


now playing: I’ve moved away from the Feel Good Friday playlist as I realised I know longer felt good but instead had flash backs of being the library so now I’m all about Classic Pop Picks because it reminds me of being at the school All Night Disco in year 8

the best xmas jumpers EVER

Boohoo, you’ve stolen the show. Aren’t these the best Christmas jumpers ever?! Well and truly kitted out for all the festivities. Boohoo wanted me to talk about about my festive family and seeing as I’m currently 150 miles away from home (and not back until late Christmas Eve, boo) it was only right that I included my adopted library family – seeing as it’s basically my home recently! Introducing my faves, Charlotte, David, Caitlin and Liv behind the camera! They bring me snacks, send me memes and put up listening to my ridiculously bad taste in music through my rubbish earphones…..that’s my kinda family! Here are our beautiful family photos, one for the photo album for sure.

Anyway, if you’ve got a Christmassy event coming up or you just have a good stash of Christmas jumpers like moi, Boohoo have got your back covered. PS BTW yes, that is a jumper for two people.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS, I’M EXHAUSTED MY UNI DEADLINES ARE NEARLY DONE THERE IS A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL……A LONG WEEK OF RETAIL LEFT THEN I CAN GET THE TUB OF QUALITY STREET OUT!! Jokes it’s already been out for a month.

the boots of my dreams

boots – c/o kurt geiger

Er so the boots of my dreams. No question. I’d been looking at these Carvela beauties for a while and now I’m the proud owner I don’t think I’ve ever been so protective over a pair of shoes in all my life. A block heel (that’s not too high either!), that patent wine shade and the detail of the tab at the back, that gold heel tho. A smart everyday shoe, super comfy, the answer to all the problems in my life. As I’m usually a scruffy Vans kinda girl I saw this as a good excuse to wear them with my favourite blouse from Nobody’s Child (they have the best things on there btw!) which comes with a skinny scarf, my basic black denim skirt from Topshop and fishnet tights before it’s too cold to wear them! The frost and red runny nose is real right now.

Here’s the first outfit post in ages! Also Ellie charge up ya damn camera! Shoutout to my homie Katie for helping me out! Also half of my degree (including dissertation) is due in 2 weeks so the pain is real right now. See you on the flip side bros.

jacket – miss selfridge so old it could practically go in a museum

top – brandy melville

jeans – monki via asos

shoes – topshop

I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about these yet. Like come on, I found myself in jean form…hellOOOOOO. A mom fit, nicely highwaisted, a sweet light blue watch, THOSE CAT FACE EMBROIDERED KNEES. For the love of god. I love ’em, I feel like they can only be worn on really special occasions so for the time being they live on the back of my chair in my bedroom. On show. For everyone to see.

Got a comfy striped tee to wear with it (because let’s face it anything Brandy Melville is as comfy as wearing pyjamas), jacket because according to blog I’m never seen without it (which tbf is half true). I can’t really wear these sandals anymore because it’s absolutely FREEZING outside but oh well sweet memsz of summer.

I think the beginning of my blog neglect has begun, days have been spent in the library until 9pm since going back to uni and I really only think it’s down hill from here. Speaking of which, fill out my questionnaire which asks about buying jeans!

top – zara

jacket and skirt – topshop

shoes – vans

If only my legs were still this tanned, summer come baaaaaaaaaaaaaack. This skirt has been a staple for me this summer, basically because it’s the best basic ever. A simple black denim mini skirt. That means I can wear it with things like MY AMAZING GLITTERY SHINY TOP. (Queue a text from Mum coming any minute now going ‘another shiny top????????’). What Zara do best. Toned down with my Vans but also my favourite red boxy jacket that I picked up from Topshop last summer.

How has everyone been? My weeks recently been spent squeezing in as much time at uni as possible, operation dissertation is a go and it ain’t gonna be smooth I tell ya.

dream denim culottes

untitled-2p1210496

culottes – whistles (via ebay!)

cami and shoes – topshop

I DON’T KNOW HOW IT HAPPENED. Absolute dreams. You know when you imagine the culottes in your head but you can’t find them IRL (I swear this is actually the story of my life….and all I write about on this blog), it’s heartbreaking but equally very much a first world problem. Anyway, I tried (obviously) Zara, Topshop, even Warehouse on the hunt for these culottes that I had in my head and they all looked weird on me and appeared absolutely massive on me. I had the image of them in my head: perfectly high waisted, front crease, not too long and not too short, a deep blue wash denim. I went on eBay on the walk back from work a couple of weeks ago and these beauties came up. Hold on, there’s more to it, I went on eBay and found a size 4 (a bit of a risk  as I’m really not a size 4) but was so desperate for them I bought them anyway. Whistles, £150, brand new, I got them for £30!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELLO THIS IS NOT A DRILL.

Anyway, surprisingly they fit perfectly and I can honestly say they’re the best thing to ever happen to me in my 21 years of living. I wore it with my basic black cami in an attempt to keep it minimal and these lovely wrap around shoes which have lasted me the whole summer.

Here’s to more culottes and sweet eBay finds!

Sorry about my cheesy face I just couldn’t control.
