Yellow Accents

I love the yellow of my sunglasses mixed with the yellow of my top and finished off with my yellow gold shoes. A super yellow themed outfit. Yellow isn’t a colour I thought I could get away with, with my hair and skin tone but I absolutely love the combo.

I can’t take these shoes off, they are so beautiful, I think they spice up any outfit.  I get the odd compliment when I wear them too, which is a bonus.

I made this silk holder top out of a vintage scarf when i was about 16 and love it. The vibrant yellow/green and the bold flower pattern are a needed statement to this outfit.

Plaid Shirt Photoshoot

In the studio playing around with lighting for this outfit post. I’ve only really used a tungsten light once before and love the moody feel of the lighting. My current class is about presentation and we have to create two shots for our portfolio and this is just practice. The light was so hot I wore my new sunglasses. Talk about attitude!

Oversized Pink Shirt

I live so close to London and don’t venture in as much as I would like. But yesterday I spent the day in the big smoke and it was fantastic, Stomping around Bond street and Oxford Street. I went solo and met up with a few fellow bloggers so a little late lunch and a book swap.

(Photos not taken in London)

Think this is the first I’ve consciously bought something pink to wear. I love the dress style of this shirt and the band across the bottom adds a frill. It’s definitely one of the more girlie pieces in my wardrobe.

Also leopard print is everywhere at the moments, so I dug out this coat with it’s on trend tulle trimming. Adding accessorise like my mirrored sunglasses and my shoes make this look a little more special. I loving the fishnet trend and am so excited to wear it with everything again. I couldn’t get my hands on a black pair or fishnet socks so I got white. I think they add another element to the outfit.

70’s Ski Jumper

Après Ski anyone?

I loved last seasons sportswear trend and Pucci’s 70’s take, with their ski style. I’ve muted this trend to fit into my daily style,

This bold graphic ski jumper with heeled tan boots is just the subtle 70’s look I love. I added a silver peace necklace.

Also it’s my birthday today, i’m 23. These photos were taken at lunch with my parents.

Donald Duck and Jane Austen

3pm stroll around Southampton old town and Ocean Village. We hunted out Jane Austen monuments and tudor architecture.

Also this Zara Donald Duck jumper is toasty warm and, what’s life without a little whimsy? (name that quote) The uni uniform is jeans, denim jacket and interchangeable tops. The same jacket as before because it doesn’t help that I left my other coats back at home, so will have to brave the cold until my return. Southampton is right on the water so there is no protection from the wind.

Five Guys and Pom Pom Hat

I’ve arrived back an uni and went for lunch with my boy friend. The Watermark has opened a few more places ( still no Wahaca though) Five Guys is one of the new ones. I’ve never been before, but the BF has so we ate there. I was a good burger but the fries are really great. I tracked how may calories the whole meal was and it was a lor-a-lot. I had the little cheese burger and little fries with a milk shake.

We took these photos on the run back to my flat. It was freezing cold.

Plaid Shirt in Perranporth

dsc_0189

I’ve been on a little Cornish get away with the boy, we stopped in Perranporth for a little look at the beach and the shops. Perranporth is my second favourite beach in the whole world. Last time I was here was in the summer but there is something much more beautiful about a moody winter beach.

It looks like I live in this Long Tall Sally coat, but it’s just the warmest thing I took with me to Cornwall. I’ve been obsessed with with this plaid shirt from Zara it’s so oversized and baggy which suites my student lifestyle to a T. I’ve been wearing it with my trusty cropped jeans and my Ziggy boots from Primark. ( couldn’t wear fancy boots on the sand)

Also I dyed my hair, I’ve been wanting to get rid of my orange ends for a while and not having a spare moment to go to a salon I did it myself in my en suite. I just dyed over my orange with the Loreal Viking dye and i have this much more muted easier on the eye look.

I’ve walked through these parks almost everyday and that it’s Autumn for all the lovely colours are perfect for outfit photos. dsc_0183 dsc_0184 dsc_0185 dsc_0191-001 dsc_0192 dsc_0198 dsc_0199

Do you ever have an outfit that you wear and you instantly feel so festive, this outfit does this for me. The cutest boots from Just Fab. They make any outfit a little more special and a burgundy mini skirt and you are away. I love all the different berry tones mixed with the brown of my shoes and the leaves.

West Quay Student Sessions

I’m never a girl to pass up a chance to go shopping, especially if that includes discounts. West Quay hosted Student Sessions for all the Southampton students to shop with discounts, dance and win some prizes.

I didn’t really do any damage, I went to my favourite shops as they were more quiet. Jack Wills were giving out free beer which was a great touch, and their staff were very nice. The gentleman that served me in Hotel Chocolat was an actual delight, very charming and friendly.

I wondered around the shops through hoards of people looking for bargains. I cheekily asked the very lovely sales assistant in Fat Face to take a photo of me. Which he kindly obliged.
