busy day today (despite feeling awful) so some fairly terrible pictures.
This morning I headed off to a professional workshop at what is basically the number one company in the world for the field I’d like to work in. It was a fairly casual event but I still thought it was important to make an effort, so I went for my H&M printed trousers and this cute sweater from ASOS. you can’t see but it has tattoo-style motifs on the elbow patches. The sweater is a little short so I have a grey vest poking out from under.
Then in the evening (after lying in bed dying for part of the afternoon), I went to a talk at the Southbank Women of the World festival. I went to see Gillian Anderson and Jennifer Nadel talk about their new book. Wanted mostly to feel cute so I gave the striped New Look shirt its second outing, teamed with black ripped jeans with fishnets underneath.
Both outfits (horribly) pictured with DMs and my Brave Soul coat.
Hey there guys!
So sorry I’ve been awful at posting lately. I started a new job and I’ve had a lot of deadlines lately so not only have I been super busy but I’ve also not worn a single remotely interesting outfit. I’m trying to get back on track though!
I bought this coat last week from ASOS and I really love it. It’s cute and it’s warm and it’s pretty much exactly what I was looking for. I still sorta wish I’d bought the mustard one, but I know that this colour is much better for me so I should stop whining.
Next up on my list is to buy more sweatshirts or cardigans or just layers, really. I own a lot of tshirts but as it gets colder I really need to get thicker clothing. I’m mostly eBay searching for these because, y’know, I’m poor. I’ll be sure to post if I find anything I really like.
And along similar lines, I’m looking to get involved in some clothes swaps maybe? I have a lot of stuff that I don’t wear anymore and a lot of it is lovely and in great condition, so I’d love to give it away to someone who will actually get wear out of it. I’ve been doing some online searching for swaps but I was wondering if any of you guys know of any regular ones? I’m in London, South West and obviously, the closer to home the better but I can travel around most of the city. I was considering maybe trying to set one up at my Uni so if anyone has any experience or advice in running a swap, that would also be much appreciated!
I’ll hopefully be posting here a little more regularly in the upcoming weeks, so until next time!
New jeans! New jeans! This is so exciting. If you’ve read my old posts you’ll know that I hate my current jeans. The jeans themselves are fine but they don’t fit me right and they were a very poor purchase and I have no excuse because I tried them on and everything, knew they were wrong but bought them because I wanted to give up on my search. Anyway, because I hate those jeans, I’m buying a lot of new trousers at the moment as replacements. I already posted about my new Gap cords, which are amazing; and unfortunately I posted the eBay link for the Yours jeans I love but are absolutely not the size they claim to be. As the Yours jeans didn’t work out, I was on the hunt for something new (and preferably in a sale somewhere.) Well, I found them!
They’re from ASOS, they were in the sale (still a little more than I wanted to spend at £16 but I really can’t complain) and I love them! I never would’ve bought this colour before, but after my artRAVE outfit, which featured dungarees of a similar colour, I felt confident enough to go for it and I’m really glad I did. They’re high-waisted, which is another thing I felt unsure about but I decided to just go for it anyway. They’re so cute, surprisingly comfortable, and I’m just so happy with them!
I decided to keep everything else pretty dark for their first outing into the world (apart from, obviously, the gold Docs) so I teamed them with the trusty Select shirt from so many years ago I’ve lost count and my Lady Gaga shirt. Also worn with the chunky Gap cardigan I’ve posted about before, because it’s cold out there but I’m still refusing to get my coat out just yet!
