Happy Monday my beautiful readers! Hope you've all had lovely weekends in the warm, I can't believe how dramatically cold it's been lately, my many layers just don't keep me warm at the moment. I'm finally feeling back to my usual procrastinating and hungry self, so normal service shall be resumed on the blog. I'm probably being quite ambitious with the posts and ideas I have planned, but I'm sure I'll fit it all in.



(Top, Topshop;
Skirt, H&M;
Belt, Primark;
Tights, Primark;
Socks, Tabio;
Stag ring, Topshop.)

Wore this mishmash of an outfit today to run some errands and pop into the University studios to model for my friend's portfolio work. I bought this top in the Topshop sale back in May for £10; it was a bit of a random and impulsive buy, because 1) I don't wear T-shirts on the whole! and 2) I'd gone in there looking for a dress to wear on my last night out of Freshers! I thought I'd dress in colours fitting to the FREEZING weather ;) The only highlight of this big freeze is that I can wear my huge chunky cardigans out, as opposed to wearing them around the flat! I have a huge affinity for cardigans, and tend to pop one on over everything.

Not sure if I pull off the tights and socks look just yet! I did attempt this on the blog before, but as I didn't wear the outfit out, I have no idea what shoes I'd generally wear. Most looks sport boots, wedges or brogues, but I went for my shearling boots. Not sure if it worked because I did get a lot of looks from the citizens of Southamps, but oh well!

The photoshoot for Leanne went pretty well, it was a global warming and ice-queen theme, meaning I am currently sporting a sparkly silver eye! I also popped in to town on the way there because in the rush on Saturday, the girl who served me at Topshop didn't take the shorts of my pyjamas off the hanger! ): Not cool Topshop... I had such a horrible experience earlier where I'd worn my new stag ring out, looked down and it totally wasn't there anymore! Luckily, it had fallen into my styling kit, so the panic is over!

Whew! Bit of a longer post than originally intended! How have you all spent the dreaded Monday?

  15. I'm totally at a loss what to wear with my long socks and tights combo. Looks better with a pump or a brogue, but if it's this damn cold, you want to wear little boots, and then all the proportions seem a bit wrong! Bah!

  16. It's freezing. I'm adorning my sexy Sixth Form leavers hoodie, again! Ooh, these posts sound like fun! Can't wait to see them. AWW, tees look so good on you. You should wear them more often (: Ooh, I'm glad the shoot went well. Silvery eye? Sounds lovely! Glad you found your ring. It looks gorgeous. I would've hated to have lost it too! I've spent my Monday going to the doctors for another blood test. Boo! Two consecutive 9am starts to come for the next couple days. Altogether now...FML! Have a lovely week.

  18. i almost always pair socks with my tights in winter, unless the tights are particularly thick and warm, it's just too cold.
    if they're pretty, over-the-knee-type socks, i might wear my navy mary-jane-esk heels, and if they're big thick socks, probably my fake dm boots..

    we could go anywhere..

  19. lydia-lee: thank you lovely! (:

    victoria: owh thanks sweet! i might put some up on here, i look very snow queen-esque in them haha! v fashion editorial!

    pookie: ooh yeah, definitely a pair of brogues, ive got my eye on a gorgeous pair from river island at the moment, but am holding out for the christmas sales (: totally know what you mean about the proportions though!

    rebecca: haha nice ;) we didn't get leavers hoodies sob! i'm just lounging around in my pyjamas at the moment though! thanks sweet! i honestly could have cried when i momentarily lost my ring, i even called the brother, as if he could somehow help! oh gosh, i hope they go well my lovely (: xxxx

    steph: thank you honey! means a lot (: it was an absolute bargain, only £6.50 which is good for a ring on the high street at the moment sadly!
