ootd

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.

Finally! A real ootd. Today I went to a filming of Child Genius in the morning and then just had lunch and a cute afternoon/evening with my girlfriend as she’s leaving tomorrow for a few days. 

I’m working the whole rest of the week so it’ll be back to uniform until Friday! 

Bought this shirt the other day from New Look and I feel really cute and cosy in it, which is great. The silly little scarf/snood is from Primark and the jeans are from H&M. 

Close up on the shirt because stripes are love and stripes are life. 

See you soon! 

January 23rd: lots of new things! (Again!)

Blog

Once more, it’s been far too long. I’m getting really bad at this, I apologise. New goal is to post at least one outfit a week, or maybe try to post an end-of-week round-up. I literally have a seven-day week between Uni and work right now, and that’s without taking a social life (and TV…) into consideration. So I am always busy but, hey, I’m always dressed so I have no excuse.

As the blog title suggests, I have more new clothes to show off! Don’t remind me of the times I said I was stopping, please. In all honesty, I only paid full price for one of the items I’m about to share so I’m letting myself believe that’s okay!

First on the agenda is this cute leopard print skirt I got from Forever 21 in their January sale. I love this skirt. It is so comfortable and so cute and just the perfect level of tacky-fab, which is my absolute favourite way to dress at the moment.

I move on, then, to this velvet dress that arrived today. It’s a New Look dress that I grabbed on eBay and it is super cute but also, importantly, soooo comfortable and warm and it makes me happy. I feel like I can really dress this up or down depending on what I choose to do with it and I’m pretty much in love with it already.

Next up is this amazing dress from BoohooPlus. I saw a post about this dress from art-i-ficial and I’m obviously not rocking it as well as she does, but this dress is such a winner and comes recommended for sure. (Bonus picture for this one so you can see how cute the neck actually is!) I can’t wait to play around a little with my accessories on this one and see the directions I can take it in. Shoutout to that spot on my lens that managed to make it look like I have a huge white stain in the middle of the dress… sigh.

And last but most definitely not least, a three-in-one extravaganza of new items. For Christmas, my sister gave me a Topshop gift card and I managed to grab this jacket and the skirt, both of which I love! The skirt still feels like a length I’m not used to, so I’m working with it, but I’ve been wearing the jacket non-stop, and I’m looking to get a few patches for it so I’ll probably be wearing it even more when that happens. Also pictured is a top from Forever 21 that is a little shorter than I’d like it to be but is still really cute as hell and surprisingly comfortable.

And that’s all for now! Like I said, posting more here is definitely on the agenda and once I’ve settled into my new routines it’ll be happening for sure!

October 28th, November 4th

Okay… some outfits are just too boring to be given their own posts. Here are two of those. I’m documenting them as part of my reminder to myself that it’s okay to be boring sometimes, as long as I don’t make too much of a habit of it!

Here’s the first. October 28th. This cardigan is actually forest green but has decided not to appear that way. These are the jeans I’ve mentioned before, the ones I hate (they’re from New Look and there’s nothing wrong with the jeans themselves I just don’t like the way they fit me). I’m still searching for a suitable alternative so that I can either customise these in some way or give them away. Jurassic Park shirt was £3 from Primark and I love it even though it does have to stretch across my boobs a little more than either of us would like.

2nd is from November 4th (and, I admit, November 5th too). I’ve been looking for some cords for a really long time but I could never really find them anywhere. This picture isn’t great because it looks like they don’t fit me on the crotch but they actually do… oops. Anyway, I’ve been looking for cords for a while and I walked in a sale in Gap the other day and found these. Turns out they were even cheaper than I expected too, with the tag reading £19.99 but them actually coming in at £11.99. Score. Shirt is from H&M basics and was about £5 I think. The absolute simplest, blandest outfit of all time but really comfortable and I felt really cute. Especially when it was all teamed with my gold docs and my go-to scarf.
